Matt Jansen - what could have been

Sad story here about Matt Jansen. He's been at Wrexham, but is on the brink of jacking it in.

He has to be one of my all time favourite Rovers players. He scored the goal which took Rovers back to the Premier League at Preston, the first goal in the League Cup final against Spurs. More than that though he was exciting to watch and played with great flair. It was sad that he missed out on the World Cup squad and just awful that he never recovered from a motor cycle accident.

I saw him once in Velvet in Canal Street, shortly after he fell off his scooter and had that head injury. I meant to say all that. Instead it came out like this: "aaaa, uuuu, you gonna be alright. uuuu. huhhh."

He's a clever lad though. I can see him making it as a coach if he puts his mind to it.
