season review 2010-11

Rovers 2010-11 Season in Pictures; part two

Its a Tuesday afternoon in early July, and its pissing it down, so what better time than now to bring our pictorial review of the season just passed to a conclusion. If nothing else it will distract me from the fact that I came to work in shorts and didn’t pack the canoe I’m looking likely to need for my return journey. So, here for your delectation are our the second dirty dozen images of the 2010-11 season captured impulsively using nothing more than the humble camera setting on my mobile phone. Try to remember as you look through these pictures that I’ve had no formal photography training… incredibly, this is all self-taught.

As with the first dozen images brought to you yesterday there are a few departures from Rovers matches to other games which featured in my season of football watching. And again, the pictures are not a full representation of the matches attended… it’s just that the majority of the others would, if included, serve as my epitaph as Football Data Co’s heavies loomed into view and dragged me away from my computer by my ankles. No-one wants that… not until its brightened up a bit anyway.
