Viva Video CXXVII

We’ve reached that time of year folks, despite the wealth of football set for your screens this weekend, the season for Rovers is very much over. The relentless promotion of the Premier League as the be all and end all of football will see the title decided Saturday lunchtime despite the fact that there exists a more significant reason why that is football’s big day. Yep, no matter what happens at Ewood Park, tomorrow, it will always be FA Cup Final Day.

For we Doncaster fans FA Cup Final day is as likely to feature their own team as the World Cup Final or the Copa Libertadores, such is Rovers’ woeful efforts in the oldest of domestic tournaments. Not since the 1950s have Doncaster reached the 5th round, and this despite starting in the third round for the last three seasons. This week’s Viva Video looks at Rovers contribution to the 2010-11 FA Cup, with footage of the 2-2 3rd round draw with Wolves. Indeed this could spark some lost memories of the day in Jamie Coppinger’s mind after he was flattened  in the second half by a run-away Elokobi. Oh and the less said about the replay the better…
