Tommy Rowe


Recommended Posts

Whilst yes, I thought Rowe was fantastic when he came in, I want to also leap to the defence of JD as well a bit. First half he did make some errors but he was also hung out to dry tactically. Wells was not tracking back enough and he was being left one on one and two on one me far too often, we switched Semenyo over late in the first half and that made a lot of difference. So for me, JD was poor, but not as poor as people have made out.

Back to Rowe, would totally give him another year with an option if he’s willing to accept it. Definition of utility player and gives it absolutely everything.

I bumped into Tommy Rowe last year at Parkway station during one of the international breaks - said I thought he was having a great season and hoped the team could keep it up. He seemed genuinely shocked and pleased to be recognised, thankful for the well wishes and seemed like a top bloke. Wish him all the best, top pro.

I met him at Charlton Farm.  Dead chatty, said his mum worked in a nursing environment so he was often asked to go in to visit ill people to give them a boost....so he was totally comfortable in the Hospice Environment.

I would be very surprised if he doesn’t go into coaching or management from the way he talked about the game.  And he took the pi$$ out of LJ too who was getting some stick about the defeat the match before.

Neither of these stories surprise me, he seems like a bit of a throwback to the 70s & 80s, someone who actually knows what working for a living is all about & who is genuinely grateful for being a professional footballer, so gives everything he has got, all the time.

He is a credit to himself & his family, fair play to him.

To be fair to Mark Ashton too, an inspired signing.
