The Curse Of The Rovers.
Is It Time to change the names?
THE END OF THE 2011-2012 SEASON.
Blackburn Rovers 19th in the Premier League
Bristol Rovers 13th in Football League Division 2
Doncaster Rovers 24th in Football League Championship
Tranmere 12th in Football League Division 1
NOW IN THE 2014-2015 SEASON
Blackburn Rovers 8th in the Football League Championship
Bristol Rovers 5th in Vanarama Conference
Doncaster Rovers 17th in Football League Division 1
Tranmere Rovers 23rd in Football League Division 2
All 4 teams called Rovers are a division lower. Is it time to change names?
Who’s for the Bristol Pirates?
(Just one of those light-hearted and idiosyncratic stories that appear from time to time.)
