1)How long have you been a Rovers fans?
y first Rovers game was in February 2003 at the Mem against Bournemouth. It was cold, wet and the only reason it finished 0-0 was because the referee chalked off a James Hayter goal for them, but I loved the atmosphere, which is why I begged my parents to take me again.
b>2)Mark McGhee, your opinion please?
fter going through as many managers as we have done in the past two years it`s good to have someone who looks like he can provide stability. He`s got bags experience, a good track record and brings an air of calm to everything he does. It`s also nice to have a manager who comes out and gives straight answers in interviews, rather than the continual bravado and stock lines that Paul Buckle used to feed us with.
b>3)Best and worst moments of last season?
coring 12 goals in the final two home games was pretty sweet; it showed how far we`ve come in McGhee`s short tenure and restored some of the atmosphere lost during the first half of the season. As far as the worst moment goes, the Boxing Day capitulation against Plymouth stung a fair bit, partly because I`m at university down there and never heard the end of it.
b>4)What will your opinion of the board be if they deliver the New Mem as promised?
ersonally, I`ve got nothing against the board. Nick Higgs and co handled took a lot of the flack levied at them over the Mem redevelopment with great humility and stuck to their guns, and now we`ve got the UWE Stadium on the horizon. If it all goes to plan and they become the ones who finally give us the new ground we`ve been longing for then I think a lot of opinions will be changed.
b>5)Which players should Rovers look to sign over the summer?
t`s been rumoured that we`re looking at bringing Matt Lund back which would be good business, he looks like the box-to-box midfielder we`ve been missing since Craig Disley left. A centre back or two is needed as well and I`d love to see Tom Parkes return, he had both great composure and ability for a young man. A couple of wide players, as it looks as though Muzzy could very well be off, and a striker with a bit of pace wouldn`t go amiss either.
b>6)Which player would you happily drive to his new club to get rid?
don`t actually drive yet, but I`d gladly pay for lessons, a car and enough petrol to reach Inverness to get rid of Joe Anyinsah.
b>7)Favourite current player?
anny Woodards. He`s the perfect professional and the only long-term bright point from last season`s defence, getting him to sign his new deal means an important piece of the puzzle is in place; I just hope he can come back from his current injury reasonably fast.
b>8)Favourite all time player?
n the time I`ve been watching the Gas I can`t see past Rickie Lambert. He could score all sorts of goals from anywhere, provide assists for everyone else and never had a bad word to say about anyone. Playing in the Premier League this season is no more than he deserves; the guy is a class act.
b>9)Where do you expect to see us finish next season?
f McGhee can bring the right players in then we should be looking at promotion, although nothing is ever easy at Bristol Rovers, so I`ll say a play-off place and a return to Wembley.
b>10)Given the opportunity is there any question from the Club you would like to know the answer to?
hat did Paul Buckle really say in the dressing room after that home defeat to Port Vale?
b>11)And finally Which celebrity/s would you most like to meet and why?
`d imagine an evening down my local with Charlie Sheen and Mario Balotelli would be interesting!
