I'm actually inclined to think the opposite - lack of match fitness and sharpness.

Is it significant that the only year Rovers won the GF was the year they didn't have Challenge Cup Final week off ? :mellow:


I would tend to agree. Whilst its clearly far from easy to take the route Sheff took this year, four consecutive knockout games, I'm not convinced the schedule for the league leaders has been advantageous.

Week off.
Final league game.
Week off.
Play off.
Week off.
Grand final.

Two games in the 6 weeks prior the final seems too little, if anything, to me. I know some aren't happy with a league game over cup final weekend but its an improvement for me. Probably unavoidable taking into account cc1 with only 9 clubs and bye weeks.

Be a real shame if this turns out to be nowt but talk, but that looks to be the most likely outcome from reading that.
