Vital Gas Interviews: Mark Brimson

1) When did you become a Rovers fan and why?
1979 because my Mum wanted me out of the house and my Dad was a season ticket holder. My first game was at Eastville v QPR and a certain Gerry Francis was playing.

2) What is your favourite Rovers moment of all time/most treasured memory?
Nothing will ever beat 2nd May 1990 for me a special night and my Dad`s birthday.

3) If you could bring back a former Rovers player into this team who would it be and why?
Marcus Stewart, we were desperate for someone like him last season, the complete striker.

4) Early day but what's Your opinion on Darrell Clarke so far? I like him a lot, talks sense, talks with passion I just hope he can walk the walk too.

5) I would normally ask best and worst moments of last season, but I think the worse is obvious, any good moments for you last season?
Can`t think of much that was good about last season on the pitch so perhaps it won`t come as a shock that I`m picking the fans as the best because the support we took to Birmingham on a cold Tuesday night was fantastic

6) Transfers have already been made, but anyone else you would like to come in?
I don`t know the non league scene well enough but I`m happy to trust Darrell Clark on this.

7) Any players you would happily drive to his new club?
Ellis Harrison

8) Favourite current player?
Steve Mildenhall without who we would have been down by Easter last season.

9) Any players that have been let go this summer that you would have liked to stay?

10) Who was your first footballing hero and who are your favourite all time player/s?
My first hero was Mickey Barrett a superb player tragically taken far too early. My all time hero is Ian Holloway, he is one of us and has gone on to achieve fantastic success as both a player and manager.

11) In your opinion who was to blame for relegation last season?
John Ward, he was the man responsible for the most unbalanced squad of players I`ve ever seen and the most negative tactics.

12) Opinion on the board?
Took their eye off what was truly important and made some stupid costly mistakes like appointing Clarke the day after the Transfer Window shut giving him no chance to make a real difference.

13) And finally, What are your expectations for the new season?
Top 10
