Birmingham now above us.

Someone show this useless b*****d the league table.

What we need is someone with enough clout to show him the door.

Please read Jim's post, the whole of it. Note the date it was written. 2 bloody years ago. Nothing has changed. Rovers fans who think we want rid of Mowbray because of the last 6 matches should r

Well part 1 of keep Blackburn up send Small Heath down went to plan... Now make sure you do your part when we come to Ewood, plenty in the away end will be more than happy to see you get 3 points

This season has been littered with bad stats but I think there are a few honours still up for grabs yet. We need a minimum of 2 points from our remaining 3 games to surpass the 51 points we went

20th position looking plausible by Saturday evening. Assuming the Birmingham result stays the same it would just take Huddersfield to beat us and Forest to at least draw with Stoke. 

Huddersfield could only draw level. Their goal difference in inferior unless its head to head

I know we won the January transfer window with the loans of Harwood - Bellis, Branthwaite and the Crewe LB but that lad Dike at Barnsley has done alright. Another winning goal takes him to something like 10 or 11 since joining in January. Proper season changing transfer business, rather than going cap in hand to City and Everton and asking to borrow someone on the cheap to fill a gap for 5 months.

Yeah, but you have to factor in the fact that we are (apparently) the only team affected by COVID this season. Or at least that's the nonsensical line seemingly being fed to the owners - but I'm really sceptical of this being true. How utterly thick would you have to be to accept that as true? Even a child would point out that it's the same for all teams.

He’ll 100% have used injuries too. Again, we must be the only club in the land who has had them this season. Funny that.

Either the owners literally have the intelligence of children or there is something else going on here. This is now the second manager during their ten year tenure who appears to be bulletproof and whose job is not threatened by league position, results or fan opinion. I can't think of a single club where that has been the case for two managers under the same owner.

They don't get football nuance. Pandemic is bad for business, hence why the football is bad. That's all they see and understand. 

They have no idea what the fans think. How would they?

Probably, but isn't it supposedly Pasha's job to communicate and explain this to them? If not then what is his purpose? To pretend everything is okay and not rock the boat? I'm just curious as to what his motivation would be for not telling his bosses the truth about what is going on, if indeed that is the case. It's not like he hasn't recommended sackings before, after all...

I reckon Mowbray and Waggott have convinced him it's a blip and Tony is the man. He would have to make a case above them then to the owners and really, do they care? What does Pasha know about football?

It's just a dysfunctional set up for success

I have seen teams and companies where it's a form of Stockholm syndrome. Things are clearly not working, but nobody in the thick of it wants to admit that, some don't even realise. Now put Venkys on top of that and you can see how this can fester
