Fan Letters: “A win at last!”

Praise for Stewart, adulation for Maguire and a plea for Lee Johnson - it’s amazing what a win can do as the RR mailbag is a bit more optimistic! Email us:

Dear Roker Report,

A win at last. Ross Stewart played really well today and deserves the plaudits.

Some sloppy defending for Plymouth’s equaliser but then the moment we have been waiting for... the introduction of Chris Maguire!

He hits the bar with his first touch scores an unstoppable penalty and radiates positivity throughout the team. This man is red and white through and through.

Give him a chance Lee!!


Ed’s Note [Chris]: I’d been waiting for Ross Stewart to be given a chance as the main man up top and he didn’t disappoint - stretched the game for us with his mobility and we just looked more dangerous going forward. In terms of Maguire, I would guess he’ll start against Northampton after that but it appears Lee Johnson has made his mind up about Maguire being an impact player from the bench - time will tell.

Dear Roker Report,

Hello all at Roker Report! Well, there we have it. Our play-off place is confirmed now, and in my opinion its quite underwhelming although I’m glad we have a chance at gaining promotion.

I fully expected us to grab the league title this year with us being supposedly the best team in the league but of course the EFL leagues are much more difficult than the Premier League, that’s my view at least.

This is not a complaint at all, I just hope to god we can actually go one step further than our last promotion attempts and gain our place in next seasons Championship table!

Ha’way the Lads


Ed’s Note [Chris]: Depends on where you view it from I think Nick. I didn’t think the top two were ever on the cards under Parkinson and not under Johnson until we went on that ridiculous run that gave us all hope. It’s been a rollercoaster season, but the plain fact stands there is three games between us and the Championship. Our fate is in our own hands, and after the season we’ve had it’s something to be grateful for.
