Viva Video XXXV

Eyes down and look in, its time for an excuse to waste some office time on a Friday afternoon in the form episode four of our weekly video feature; Viva Video. If we had more time and more technical nous then we’d be about to show you an hilarious clip in which we’d subtitled conversation relating to the Matt Mills transfer sage over footage of a speech by Adolf Hitler. Sadly we’re not that good, nor that crass, so you’ll have to make do with this instead.

In a week which has again seen Rovers players the subject of multi-million pound transfer talk on the verge of our second season in the Championship I felt it was time to ground everyone again and remember where we’ve come from. Its still less than seven years since we were a non-league football club, and instead of facing West Brom or Watford we were all getting excited about playing Woking live on S**. So back we go to when Dean Barrick was a footballer and not a PE teacher, and when ‘Oh Jamie Jamie’ was Paterson and not Copppinger.

One thought on “Viva Video XXXV

  1. That’s a good find Glen. It bears little resemblence to what we are offered now and that’s not necessarily a good thing.
