features, season review 2010-11

Rovers’ 2010-11 Season in Pictures; part one

Having focussed on the words of the season just gone a week ago, it seems only right to pad out our close-season coverage further by bringing you some images from the past year as well. I’m no David Bailey, but I’ve made an effort to deploy the camera setting on my phone and take a picture or two at all the Rovers games I’ve attended this last season. Indeed those of you who have followed us on twitter during the season may have seen a few of these relayed via that medium already, but now we intend to give these images to the masses.

There are a few departures from Rovers matches to other games which featured in my season of football watching, and indeed not all the games I’ve attended this season are included. The reason for the latter is not so much the quality of the pictures, but the likelihood that the lovely happy-go-lucky people at Football Data Co will shut us down again should we deign to include a blurry phone-camera image of a distant football field, as happened the other year. Anyway here’s the first dozen from our season collective for you to waste some time with.
