In the words of Brenda, from Bristol, “YER JOKING, ANOTHER ONE?!”.

This time Jack spoke to Trevor ‘Poison’ Challis to discuss the massive highs and massive lows of his five year Rovers career which spanned from 1998 to 2003. 

Trevor played under Ian Holloway, Garry Thompson, Gerry Francis and Ray Graydon. He speaks favourably about the start of his time at The Gas but as the team’s form dipped and the stars of the late 90’s left, things became very different.

We discuss what went wrong in that infamous 99/00 season, how good that squad was, what Holloway was like, the player exodus, 00/01’s relegation and being managed by Gerry Francis and later Ray Graydon, as well temporary spells from Garry Thompson. There’s also special mentions for Derby away in the F.A. Cup and Everton in the League Cup. Challis also faced some listener questions.
