Well, we was totally outclassed by a better team and it seemed to me like Coppinger is the new Joe Cole.

The stadium was pretty impressive although the stewards are stupidly strict and pretty silly but overall wasn't too bad.

The support was absolutley awesome, to think of chanting, bouncing and everything else at such a heavy defeat is awesome and the faces on the Donny fans was priceless. The journey out of Doncaster was also nice with Rovers giving us a nice applause :)

We then hit the A1 and slowly but surely our coach slowed down and then all the lights went out (pitch black) and we was stranded without any power in a layby just outside Doncaster!! We waited over 2hrs for a fitter to arrive (without any parts) and then he stated that the belts had snapped.

Anyway..... Cutting a long story short 2 coaches later and over 4hrs later we got moving on a stupidly hot coach and we arrived back at Roots Hall at 5:15 in daylight. I am so tired it's unreal and the journey home was terrible but now home and still smiling and looking back at a fun night.

If you think that was bad, the coach I was on decided to put a crap DVD on.

What were the choices you ask? Up Pompeii, Zulu Dawn or a few episodes of Inspector Morse. What did we get Zulu Bloody Dawn!! After the titles started, it went of to several cheers! They still put it back on & so bloody loud my ears are still ringing!
