Calling all Gasheads!York City are next up at the Mem – and we need you all to help make the atmosphere as loud and intimidating as possible.
Over the last three or four weeks we have all sensed a nervousness around the ground, not only before the games, but during them too.
Perhaps it’s because our home form wasn’t as good as we’d want it to be.
Or it could even be anticipation that we’ll turn over teams as easily as we did on regular occasions last season.
This is step up, a better league with better players and good, strong established teams who come to the Mem to take three points home with them.
There will be ups and down this season. It’s rare for teams to finish a season in this league with a virtually unblemished record of results.
Everyone beats everyone, as we all know too well, having been on the end of defeats by teams lower down the league.
Last season, even with fewer away fans at the other end of the stadium, Gasheads at home games were incredibly loud at almost every game.
The North Terrace sounds amazing when you’re all in full voice – and other parts of the ground react to that and will follow your lead in getting the place jumping.
Players who sign for us often say the atmosphere is one of the reasons they chose Rovers.
And the lads need you all to help them through games.
Supporters being the 12th man is a cliché admittedly, but the players get a buzz from playing for you, and they love the appreciation they receive before during and after games.
Gasheads are in my opinion the most passionate fans in the country.
So let’s show that tomorrow, create a cauldron of noise and help them boys pick up another three points.
Al the best
