Rovers refute claims using spin that would make New Labour proud. Just had to post this up. You have to love the way they quote stats but leave things out. Rovers enjoyed a greater share of posession - JUST! Forced way into penalty box 79 times compared

Rovers refute claims using spin that would make New Labour proud.

Just had to post this up. You have to love the way they quote stats but leave things out.

Rovers enjoyed a greater share of posession - JUST!

Forced way into penalty box 79 times compared to our 15 - no mention of how many were crosses or long throw ins though!

Only 36% of Rovers total passes were from own half - Of course, that proves they are not a long ball team, right?

Average pass length 16.4m - significantly longer than west Ham's. 24 crosses compared to our 3 - yet we still managed two shots on target to their 4!

Of course, sky sports says that they only had 3. Completed more 'passes' than West Ham - would like to contest this one but unable to find any stats other than pass success - BR 65% WH 72%.

At least they can console themselves with finishing with 11 men. Samba could have gone for either his petulant kick at LBM OR his rugby tackle on Dyer when last man.

The draw was fair.
