It's always better to see the word "champions" rather than "runners-up" in the club's honours list.

You can throw this around has much has you want but it in the end this paragraph sums it up.There is always only one winner.

Winners never talk about why they where second. That’s what losers do. Full stop

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

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

Promotion was the aim and it was a massive massive relief given the huge concerns of what might happen if it wasn't achieved. 

However if you are close to winning something and have a 50% chance you should damn well go for it. Some of those players won't get close to any league winners medal in their careers. Doesn't do a managers CV any harm either.

You shouldn't go shit or bust for it and risk blowing 2nd place but if that isn't the issue then go for it !

Yet another off the mark observation from Tony, and seemingly trying to justify his changing of a winning formula.

Let’s hope we have enough momentum in this team now because it looks like chopping and changing the team is set to resume.

At the Xmas period every side is likely to be making some changes.

With 5 wins and a draw from 6 games Mowbray does not have to "justify" anything - the standard of his decision making speaks for itself.

What is off the mark about that??

The concern is that he is now trying to make out like Downing is a weakness in the team [at left back] which other team will “target” when the truth is anything but. Now Bell is being talked up as a viable alternative when he has being talked about, almost universally, as a weak link who lost his place to Cunningham, then Bennett (!) and now Downing. This even suggests that we have depth in this position - another timely excuses not to address it in January. It’s going to be deja vu January all over again.

Laughable but sadly typical of the kneejerk mentality in football. 1 good game in 20 and Bell’s suddenly the answer now.

Great video that and a perfect example of the six P's philosophy. 

 

interesting that at 04:48 the top of the athletic performance leader board is Ben Gladwin!

No chance...only the ones who’ve come from the Prem will be even close. Interesting timing in getting it out though. Will certainly attract players. Was sent to me by an ex player into a WhatsApp group with four others who are still in football and some of them couldn’t believe the set up. Th

Who wouldn’t want to work there right? ?

It's impressive and all seems very organised and professional so got to give credit to Mowbray and whoever is overseeing it.  To me that's still where his greatest strength lies and although you'd expect that of a club like this anyway i doubt it was that way when he walked in.

As long as the main focus and funds remain committed to pushing the first 11 as far as is humanly possible we should do ok.

Out of curiosity, what is your job, presumably within football?

No mate, nothing to do with football. I played (quite badly) as a young lad. But a lot of the lads who I played with went on to have decent careers. Some excellent careers....all retired now but most still involved as league scouts, coaches and a couple as managers.

A couple of them were blown away by the standard of our facilities. Wasn’t expected. I’m even more convinced than ever that video has been released to attract potential players you know...it’s very impressive that.

I agree its impressive set up and very forward thinking. 

Can you tell us any people you played with who gone on to have good careers?
