Mowbrays stance against Mulgrew for me is a sign that he knows he’s under pressure. Mulgrew and Bennett are piss poor defenders. If he’s cslled them out then so what. More importantly he’s seems to have fired Mulgrew off to Wigan for his insolence. The squad may be feeling a little unnerved. Good, I say. There’s a few in there like Dack, Mulgrew, Bennett who’ve been coasting for months. 

Maybe it’s a shot across the bows of the players who’ll be thinking “Jeez, you don’t wanna piss the gaffer off. If he can shift the club captain out in half a day he can get rid of any of us!”

Yet he keeps picking Bennett leaving a better defender with real pace on the bench.  WTF.

Skrtel

Ashley Williams

That lad from QPR in ripped jeans and tatts

Thats about all i know without looking.

Would love Skrtl here.  Prone to the odd blunder but damn good defender.

There will be some very disgruntled individuals in there.  Nyambe, Rothwell and Brereton to name but three (and can you blame them).

Mulgrew, like Raya, will feel like he's been hung out to dry.  Mulgrew is very influential, an international with some 40 caps or more, and you can be sure others will take note of both his displeasure and likely castigation of Mowbray.

Absolutely not Merc, rank bad management, rank bad vision, rank bad motivation.  What must these pro's be thinking.  Clearly they can see as well as us that Mowbary is picking lesser quality players ahead of them.  It has to infuriate and or demotivate.  Question remains why.  By all accounts BB had an encouraging pre season, then when chasing the game he brings on Buckley.  Had he brought on BB and he scored can you imagine the boost the lad would have got.  Course he may not have scored but at least he is not wondering wtf he has to do to get a kick.  Really swinging to the Mowbary out group now.

I don't doubt the wage bill was full to bursting.

However Mowbray brought this entirely on himself by unnecessarily handing out new deals to the likes of Graham, Evans, Bennett, Smallwood, Mulgrew, and replacing the superfluous Conway with the even older and presumably more expensive Downing.

Spot on with the money part Rev.  Sigh, if only our owners actually understood footy.

To true, and this may be the kick up the ass they all need, I mean if the captain isn't safe no one is so they should all play for there jobs, it's not a charity its football play properly or f@#k off 

Kick up the arse?  Charlie is off to play football somewhere else where he will still be paid handsomely.  Same would apply to all our other players, do they really give a toss?  I'm betting not, some may be worried about a pay cut but that would be about it.

You can be as facetious as you like yet no-one came into replace Mulgrew therefore that does not suggest the move was long in the planning.

Or the plan is that Tosin and Lenihan are the clear first choice pairing and that we have enough cover in the existing squad. 

Or we are planning on signing a free agent to add additional cover.

just how it should be ....

a friend {Glos based PNE fan} pointed me to this post on the PNE forum, interesting perspective on Rover's business in the window 

 

quite why they consider Rovers as 'Plastics' is beyond me, but presumably some obscure reference to us competing at the very top of the top level through the 1990's along-with the so-called big boys, [it's also quite ironic as PNE were last in the first division in 1961 when plastic probably hadn't even been invented].

Maybe Rover's transfer business looks better from the outside than from our own perspective?

 

Wow, a reasonably balanced Both Ends fan,.who'd a thunk.

Then that would be a manager's right to manage!..Possibly after letting it go too long?

I guess this could be a glimpse of much-vaunted (on here) previous of Tony appeasing the "clique" in his team selections. Maybe, it just came to a head?

I don't know this, I hasten to add-merely hypothesising...

Mowfray very much comes across as the affiable type who makes rods for his own back but to be fair after a while he does react we've seen it before. My concern is given who/when Mulgrew was brought in why did he seem to end up weilding so much power over the team ?

He always had a touch of 'big time' about him on the pitch something i touched on after the first 2 games of the league 1 season but he really knuckled down after that, once Mowbray ( or him ) had altered tactics....

As a manager gets more experienced he should get more ruthless really anybody looking for an easy ride is knackered if they can't run their own dressing room when things go difficult.

Get in ON. Better than Final Countdown.

Yes, and we got rid of that in the transfer window. Away even quicker than Charlie.

Been replaced with probably different tune each game.

Mowbray has said his preference is to let the dressing room police itself, so I imagine the likes of Mulgrew, Bennett, Graham, Evans, etc have a fair bit of stroke. All good until the team hits a bad run of form, or a popular player is sold, and those same players decide the manager is more of a problem than they are. At that point it's game over.

Policing itself is one thing but running itself on the pitch is another, probably harks back to old school stuff i remember Souness having Flitcroft and Short as his lieutenants in there but i doubt they had much say in selections and tactics like these lot seemed to have.

If that's the plan----its a rotten plan!

I think "plan" overstates it though.

Only in the head of someone looking to sugar coat it whilst in reality it'll have been nothing like that.

Wonder who took over the "enforcer" role in the dressing room when Conway left

Now urgently required a free centre half, fit and who wont shy short of putting his head in the way. Cue Ashley Williams incoming !

Mowbray take note !

also must be able to decipher the enigma code (i.e understand our tactics and style of play) so can start straight away, and no ripped jeans or baseball cap on back to front

I am sure a lot of clubs looked at him during the window but I guess his wage demands were too high ... Now the Window's over those demands may be a lot less
