I think Gallagher's goal totally vindicates the article. Wide striker, inside forward, or as it has legitimately been out and out winger, whatever “wider” position he’s held it’s been totally ineffect

Got 1 in the cup and its made no difference. Its a terrible sign as a striker if you arent even getting chances, hes not getting into the positions, not anticipating where the ball will fall. He also

Waggot will be on the blower to the LT saying this isn't the propaganda we want i demand a follow up article 5 things we like about strikers on the wing !

Richard will be in the headmaster Tony's office first thing for a stern ticking off and a lesson on how journos do things in Middlesbrough.

Funny you point this out. Even before the game today, Neil Yardley tried to rally the fans to get behind “Tony Mowbray’s blue and white army”. When did we stop being proud of being “Blackburn Rovers”? It’s like the club didn’t exist until he got here. Very divisive to make it all about the current manager. I see Jack also has now been dropped and it’s just Mowbray’s flag at pitch side.

Yes he scored, but it really was a peach of a ball from Nyambe and the goalie dithered. The missed header at the end reinforced my view he just doesn’t have it. Barry Endean would’ve put that in.

I’d forgotten about that amid the excitement. Absolutely had the goal gaping and headed it straight at the keeper.

It's a bit pathetic really but maybe TM has been sulking a bit. 

Then again it's probably just propaganda aimed at India. The club is run just like a franchise. Those running it are always just one bad result away from deflecting blame onto fans.

Was just about to share this, but Chaddy beat me to it. The Penwortham screenshotter getting mugged off was awesome. 
Especially with him lacking that much self awareness that he called someone else a coward.
Sit down you absolute whopper.

Lots of people taking delight in this.

Some of it has got very nasty though. Glad I don't do twatter!

I hope it’s not a reflection of other problems and he is ok and has an outlet if he isn’t in a good place , maybe this is his therapy 

Therapy at others' expense is not a model I would recommend!

Him and Simon Smith (he that couldn’t cope with a bit of criticism over his LT column) have been having a day long set to. 

I won’t say over what as it’s probably a libel issue, but a couple of bloody oddballs.

Yeah it's pretty ridiculous, but agree that the topic of the argument should definitely not be discussed here. It's easy enough to find on Twitter for the genuinely curious.

We’ve always the managers name followed by blue and white army ever since I can remember.

I think Smithy may have been on the pop yesterday looking at that.

According to Tony

“It was great that he scored today after the week he’s had," Mowbray told iFollow Rovers.

Hope Gally has got over the scathing and heinous attack in the press

Probably wouldn't have been so bad if DG hadn't brought the article to so many people's attention tbh.

Blimey just caught up with that, what the hell was he thinking. I wondered why he posted on FB last night canvassing 'opinion' on a related 'hypothetical' scenario. To be honest I hope he's OK, he seems a bit fraught.

Brereton looks somewhat reborn (albeit without threatening the goal - yet), but this bloke has become a much bigger issue. Mowbray seems to have a love affair with playing him out wide, and he just looks completely lost. He’s 6’4, but plays in the air like he’s 5’5, he doesn’t know where to make runs, he doesn’t use his strength effectively, and he simply does not know how to attack a football. I’m confident he’d still be useless up front, but this RW ‘thing’ has to stop and now. Will it under Mowbray? I don’t think so.

I fear we've dropped a major bollock with this one. The manager does not help when he plays him out wide, but he's not that impressive in the middle either. It might just be that the system we play doesn't suit him, but we aren't getting £5m back for him so we either need to find a way to make it work or accept a likely significant loss (as nobody will pay him the wages we do either), move him on and look elsewhere.
