Viva Video VIII

OK, I’ll level with you, sometimes, just sometimes, it can be pretty hard to find a video for this segment which is both related to Rovers and topical all at the same time. In fact, truth be told, most weeks I am about two minutes away from thinking ‘sod it’ and uploading a classic clip from The Day Today and finding something more practical to do.

Now you understand what I go through each week all in the name of fresh content then you can perhaps forgive the very vague connection to this week’s Viva Video choice. This Saturday Rovers travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace. Whilst for many Rovers players it will be an unfamiliar test, one of the current squad will have many memories of South East London.

Neil Sullivan of course spent twelve years with Palace’s former tenants Wimbledon, not to mention a loan appearance for the Eagles themselves. So, I thought I’d delve into the archives for highlights of Sullivan’s time at Selhurst Park. So, what did I find? A glorious one-handed claw from the top corner? a last minute penalty save? a cat-like reflex save from point blank range? Er nope, just this, sorry Neil…
