Re: MELCHESTER ROVERS ALL STAR TEAM


Man, still got to catch up reading a lot of RotR stories it seems, as many of the names mentioned are really new to me... pity the who's who is so limited, really could've used it this time around. Does anyone know all of these characters are described (and with picture?) in 'the playing years' I'm bound to receive?

Anyway, not a lot to add which hasn't been mentioned before to my favourite team.
Except I think it was pity Roger Dixon, the super sub didn't get any more chances playing for the Rovers (or did he? maybe in some stories I haven't read yet?). to my opinion he was doing alright the times he did play, wasn't he? Except at the time when he was just transferred and lacked some stamina. He seemed never to have caught up with that stamina did he? Strange but true. Anyway, I remember him as a good enough player and a not too easy fella. Just the way we like them, no?

posticon Re: MELCHESTER ROVERS ALL STAR TEAM


It isn't easy choosing an all star team, but perhaps the following should be in it:

Manager: Racey (of course)!

Asst Manager: Geoff Giles.

Goalkeeper: Andy Styles.

Defenders: Karl Bruckner, Johnny Dexter, Steve Wootten, Duncan McKay.

Midfielders: Blackie Gray, Mervyn Wallace, Terry Spring.

Forwards: Racey, Rocky Race, Andy Maclaren.

Substitutes: Charlie Carter, Noel Baxter, Paco Diaz, Pak Soon, Bruce 'Pancho' Miller.

Re: MELCHESTER ROVERS ALL STAR TEAM


Hi Guys,

well in the Fan Club area of the website you can now vote for your favourite player for each position in the team. You can decide if you are a Tubby Morton fan or a Charlie the Cat supporter, or vote for who's better Lofty Peak or Johnny Dexter? Follow the link below for more details and to vote:

]Melchester Rovers All Star Team!

If there are any glaring omissions then please let me know asap. I haven't been able to include everyone who has played for the Rovers, as we can only fit 10 candidates per position. I've still to play with the colour scheme but please vote away!

Every month, I'll update the page with the most voted in each position.

Re: MELCHESTER ROVERS ALL STAR TEAM


Fantastic job Mark. Well done!
It was hard for me to choose the RB (between Wooten and Baxter), and the LCB (between Dexter and Peak). The rest was an easy choice!

Re: MELCHESTER ROVERS ALL STAR TEAM


Tho mentioned before, Rapper is an interesting choice I think. He only played 1 season for Rovers (not even completely? - didn't he come to replace an injured goalie?) but surely left quite an impact it seems.
