1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground?
I was looking forward to attending Oakwell as for what I saw it
looked like a decent ground when I checked
this website on the eve
of the game
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
The journey was a easy
one a half hours, as I
travelled to the game by the club coaches.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
I didn't speak to any home fans but we just
got of the coach and bought a programme and
went to the club shop so my mate could buy a
4. What you thought on seeing the ground,
first impressions of away end then other sides
of the ground?
I thought it was not a bad ground on the
whole. But I didn't understand why the
old West Stand was open, when there were
hardly any home fans in there. I guess it doesn't help that most of the seating in this stand is
uncovered. The away end I
thought was pretty decent, with
a good view. It was
unreserved seating with around 1.700 Rovers fans in attendance.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
The game was awesome. Rovers
players had put 100% effort in
for Gary Bowyer as Henning Berg
was sacked just days before. Rovers took the
lead through a amazing run from Josh king, followed
by a second scored by Rochina
before half time. Then Barnsley nicked one
back, but to settle the nerves super Rhodes
scored in the dying
seconds of injury time. Whilst celebrating the
goal I dropped my wallet and ipod
which were soon returned to me by a vigilant steward.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground
after the game:
Ut was very easy -
straight out on coaches .
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
A great day after
Christmas, a pretty decent ground apart from
the West Stand , great stewards, and
a good three points for
Rovers to end a bad run.
