|MTV 1879 München II v Rovers II - match Report..
Rovers Rumble back to form – stunning 4-4 victory quickly hailed as a classic…………nonsense Rovers smash up
I am officially retiring from match reports but this heroic and wonderful smash and grab 4-4 victory for the lads in navy blue and bottle green deserves a few words…
A match that had all the mad craic any right minded supporter could wish for – thrills..and spills...goals galore…controversy and shocks…mad fightbacks and mad men…punch ups and cock ups…headbutts and hard nuts…skills not so many but the Rovers fighting spirit shining through….where to begin where to begin..
Team of the day
Rovers number 1 Yacine
I do ‘Aido’ Georgie of Saxony Jamesie Balboa Mad Gary Ryan
Aubing Headcase Sachy Marius of München Denny I never touched him Andy the salmon Bown
Dave the living legend goal machine and hero to us all Akin
Dave have I told you about my goal yet snzzzzzzzzzz Bushy
Subs. Millionaire playboy Rob Abramovic (Unused!!)
Instant hero ..our new Brazilian Jeffery
Coach ..Rod ‘ the Big easy’ Bracken
Fans…the Scotch lads sensing a rumble
…and some loon (alleged) in a hat
‘It’s not about never falling that marks a man but in picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and coming back faster, harder and stronger every time..it’s all about heart!!’
This was the message conveyed by Coach Rod after the previous weeks no show (Legend two goals Akin excused) defeat against the Blumenau upstarts.
‘’Youse have lost to a team of fookin pussies…what da fuck does dat make youse!!??’’ Read between the lines and rise yourselves…
Suitably inspired the Rovers Seconds were determined to make amends against the little known soft rock and are&b music channel MTV lads. Fans of real music should check out Mad Matt and the Septic Seven this Friday!!! ..which reminds me of a few enforced changes to the team..Mad Matt himself absent with a groin strain (excessive groupie damage one would think) and African Magician Rory taking time out to hang in a chair with wheels – wheeley?
In came Sachy fresh from a night out on the smash with his new BFFF’s from the Aubing Volksfest, Dave Bushell – we’ll get to your goal Dave read on and Andy Bown we’ll get to yours too
Gaz Ryan slipped into left back hoping to decapitate some folk and make up for mad Matts absence..
Kick off. Finally ha ha
Rovers play like a team of absolute legends. They pass the ball. Make clever runs. Full backs over lap. 20 minutes of pure unadultarated total football magic. MTV don’t touch the ball. Score after 20 minutes genius play is 0-0.
Number 6 who looked a proper player and caused suitable damage from 20 minutes on took the ball from his keeper had a little dribble..continued the little dribble..slowed down his dribble..had a fag break..then dribbled on into the goal.
No one wants to see that!!

Where have we seen that before??
After some thought it was collectively decided that number 6 may be a bit of a danger. So we kicked him a bit…and tried a bit more…lad was fast!! This helped. McArdle got a yellow.
Or…pick yourself up, dust yourself up and have a go…
All Heart the Rovers continued to attack and continued to be short on luck in front of goal until Rocky James floated a free kick deep to the back post and Andy Bown rose..and rose and kept rising to reach it and power a header up and over the keeper. Superb header.
2-1 halftime. Could have been better. Could have been worse
‘’if you truly believe in yourselves, trust each other, fight for each other and never give up you will prevail. We will win this game’’
Inspired again by Rod ‘’Just fookin kick him’’ – read between the lines, the Rovers fired into the second half all guns blazing…Mr Sach began to shake off the fest to run riot, ripping round the full back on the left and picking out the legendary goalscoring head of Akin for a tap in at the back post
2-2 game on
3-2 MTV. ‘’Wakey fookin wakey’’ straight from the kick off a collective snooze ensued..runners weren’t tracked and MTV were gifted another soft Goal. Balls
McArdle compounded matters by getting sent off. Already on a yellow he stupidly ran close to an MTV opponent. Who done the only logical thing in the circumstances and threw himself to the ground clutching his head screaming and crying out for his Mama. Second Yellow. Harsh I would say but gotta go….Big thanks to John H for coming through with a timely beer.
Down to 10 men the mountain got higher. Another soft goal for the MTV pop pedallers as the ball pinged around a bit to an unmarked offside (alleged) dude to stroke home.
4-2 and a man down game over!
One would think.
Running purely on guts, instinct and above all heart the Rovers dug in again.
New brazilian starlet Jefferey came on for Andy on the right wing and immediately improved us with his touch and clever play…and bizarrely the Rovers continued to dominate. Akin time and time again caused havoc with his pace and spirit only to be denied by the keeper..Bushell also came to the fore holding the ball up well for midfielders Sach and Marius to break through and be dangerous.
Refusing to lie down the tackles started to fly in thicker and faster…the game was definitely on a knife edge with the MTV playacting and screaming at the ref ...things were getting heated.
But the clock was ticking and the pressure wasn’t telling….
Till 80 minutes down ..Ryan fed Akin, Akin did a Messi shimmy and laid the ball off to Bushell 30 yards out. Bushell closed his eyes, stuck out a leg and spannered a mishit pass into the top corner – and yes Dave we all saw it. What a goal!
10 mins to go and all the momentum with the 10 Rovers heroes who kept on pushing..
Mis hit wonder Goal hero Bushell put the ball wide from a yard. It’s ok Dave no one saw
Then..then..then it all just kicked off..big style!! Some argy bargy and gamesmanship escalated to the point where young James took a nasty looking headbutt to the eye. Yacine took exception and tried to restore order. A melee ensured involving more or less everyone…I witnessed Rover after rover try to diffuse the situation.
Calm down Calm down.
Some MTV supporters stormed the pitch as it threatened to get out of hand.
An alleged man in a delmonte-esque straw hat took to the field to help calm things. Stopping only briefly to pick up said hat. He failed to calm things.
Benny Hill sang the theme tune. It got nasty allegedly.
Some sort of order was eventually restored…play continued with 2 minutes left and a whole lotta dazed and confused Rovers tried to recover their composure enough to only go and fucking equalize!!!!!
You couldn’t make it up…
10 man Rovers reeling from a bit of a kicking still didn’t give up….tour de France champ Sachy going on a mazy run infield and slipping the ball through the defence for the on-rushing debutant Jefferey to show an astonishing turn of pace to beat the goalie to the ball and lob goalwards for who else but the big man for the occasion Dave Akin to bury from an inch.
4-4 Victory for the Rovers. Epic performance and an epic result. Devastating for the MTV poplets. Result.
Hugs and kisses from Rod and big love all round.
Man of the Match – The Rovers team Spirit – Back with a bang.
Special mentions to Dave Akin – he scores goals you know, Yacine – stood up to be counted, Sachy ‘’I feel sick’’ magic all the same, Marius – bounced back, Georgie of Saxony – massive, Gaz Ryan – dominated the wing from full back, Jefferey – Big Impact, Andy Bown - Superb goal, Bushell – ok it was a cracker, Rory – get well soon!, Aido – le’s get ready to rumble, Jamesie – takes a mean fee kick..and a mean headbutt, Rod – Show me the love, Man in the hat – may have a slight temper ha ha
