That late goal means nothing to me. Mowbray looked a dead man walking at 2-2 and a late free kick (which Arma did well to buy) doesn’t change that.

Having to score three to get past Barnsley isn’t good enough. Conceding after making all his subs too.

 The crowd very nearly turned too and they will next time.

Mowbray out.

Hang on. How does the late goal mean nothing ? At the start of this month Mowbray was criticised because we never won games late on; now we are making a habit of it.

I’m sorry Paul, but it really has bewildered me that running Blackburn Rovers sensibly has been made to look as arduous as sewing in sparring mitts, but that is how it has been presented throughout th

I certainly don't claim to be 'ITK' at all but shortly after the final whistle yesterday I received a text from someone extremely close to the club - not the playing or coaching side - who doesn't nor

The trouble is, this is a well-trodden route in the Copybook of Tony Mowbray. A week back, prior to Cardiff and following the utterly woeful and woebegone showings against Wigan and Barnsley, we neede

So do you think Mowbray is the man to take us forward, yes or no?

The point is clearly that, yes we won but it’s not good enough and there’s been enough evidence that a change is needed

I think he's more likely than another Venkys appointment. Why would a Rovers fan not be thrilled by another late winner ?

The ground didn’t seem too thrilled at full time.

Ive never known such a subdued crowd after a late win...

Well i I wasn't that "thrilled" that I used to be. It also the matter how you win games. Today we struggled yet again, and today at was against the worst team in the league. We concede 2 goals (again) and Barnsley are for the most part of the game the better side. So the reason I am not too thrilled is that we were lucky to beat the bottom side in the league and the upcoming games are against much better teams. And nothing seems to change.

Mowbray a lucky man tonight. That 3rd goal saves his blushes and likely sees the circus carry on for a few more weeks.

Obvious to anyone watching that game that we are a team in big trouble with a manager out of ideas. A competent executive structure would be highly alarmed by this afternoon, Waggott will be toasting the win knowing him and his mate are safe a while longer.

Nine years and counting on the Loon gravy train. They really are fucking clueless. I wish my career path had led me to manage our club in their tenure!

Comment from Rovers twitter feed  - 3 points for Rovers in an absolute thriller at Ewood Park.

They really must think we are thick.

I feel the same. It's the bigger picture. The watching sides make light work of our right hand side, week in, week out. The watching us concede possession cheaply. The watching us kick the ball out of play. The lack of belief. The lack of fight. The lack of intensity. The lack of balance. The subs on 60 minutes regardless of the game or the score. The taking off of Rothwell moments after he opened up the opposition but keeping Armstrong on when he had been a passenger all half. The square pegs in round holes and watching another poor side outfight us, give more effort than us and show more team spirit than us.

 

That late winner didn't give me a glimmer of hope that it was anything other than papering over a shed-load of massive cracks.

Mowbray did look like dead man walking and a man ready to quit. 

I agree the crowd was close to turning. Booing.and chants of Mowbray sort it! 

Yes we do need a change but I want to win games. Before and during games we(me and people i go with) were discussing Mowbray future and saying its change for a manager as he cant take us into the top 6. We discusss Gareth Ainsworth, Damien Johnson and Nigel Pearson for the job.

We want to win at the end of the day whether we want a change of manager or not

“It was all about three points, that’s what we’d spoken about," said Mowbray. "It wasn’t about performance levels.

Tony, Stop talking and start walking!!

Funny that. When we lose it’s all about the performance levels.

No - a fan of about 55 years standing trying to introduce a sense of perspective

I'm glad you said that. Now, be honest, in all of those 55 years can you remember us being so bad and, if so, when?

The 1970-71, 1978-79 and 2016-17 seasons

And on 2 of those occasions (I was born in 71 so dunno that one) the manager was sacked and we went on to be successful thereafter.

I read all about our 'natural level" but recall teams put together on a shoestring in the mid 80s challenging in the play offs year in year out. We've had something like 5 seasons in the 3rd tier in our 144 years yet we should accept and appreciate where we are? The perspective you are trying to give is flawed based on history (not to mention significant investment currently on the playing side) and the argument on who would replace TM with is moot as it's plain to see the team is regressing and will end up back in L1 if he is left in charge. He simply has to go.

The play offs were introduced for the end of the 1986-87 season so I don't think what you are saying is quite right.

Nowhere do I say that I am happy with where we are. My original post today was in response to a supporter's claim that he was unmoved by us winning today's game with a late goal. I just find it hard to believe that a football supporter really thinks like that. Sitting down here in the South of England I was out of my chair for that winning goal.
