Mowbray and the players constantly mention the top 6, weekly. In fact, that was last seasons target too, although it seems to be a target they have more belief in this season. After the Millwall game last season, our captain tweeted to apologise for failure to meet the target.

Im not sure when Waggott mentioned the top 10 although thats a pointless target anyway. 

Its not just about budget, as ive touched on. Time, money, wage bill, pressure to sell, net spend, all factors. Its not as black and white as you or others make out but even if it was, then we would need to overachieve, and if Mowbray cant, then the hope would be that we got someone who could.

I agree with you but would you trust the owners, the CEO to bring someone who could?

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

Since when was our goal top 6? This season even Waggott Mention expectation was top 10. Had he failed all target he would have been sacked as all manager under performing. To be honest Mowbray is steady Eddy he will not over deliver just about get to where owners set the goal. Just because you hope for top 6 doesn't mean the goal is top 6

Mowbray’s recent interviews should be hugely concerning to any member of the board or the owners. He sounds like he has lost the plot.

His latest comments about Nyambe are dreadful. The worst example in a long line of very shoddy treatment he has dished out to him. We discussed this massively on our Saturday show on Rovers Radio. It’ll be touched on again tomorrow... but we recorded before this interview went to press.

Also gonna be discussing the HSH link, looking at possible replacements, being generally pissed off, and bemoaning the fact that we don’t actually think he is under any pressure. Oh, and the show kicks off, rather appropriately with “Go Now” by Moody Blues.

Limbo.

Manner of the defeats is that we have barely been able to field our strongest side since the beginning 

Big money transfered failed and i agree, but he has spent wisely for the most part 🙂

He hasn't spent wisely for the most part because most of the money he has spent has gone on two players that have been a bit of a disaster.

Mowbray mentioned the goal was top 6 at the beginning of the season, so has Waggott, so have half the players. I'm amazed you missed it.

Good thing about being on a journey, is you can re set the milometer anytime you want...

He sounds deluded, desperate, clueless, and totally out of touch with reality. It's embarrassing to have someone with that level of football intellect at our club. We're at the start of what I think will be the longest death spiral of his tenure, I just hope someone who can make decisions wakes up and does the decent thing and puts him out of his misery.

Well done, good to see you are getting it. (I tried to write that without being condescending so sorry if that's how it reads)

Phew, only 28 games in! I was getting worried for a few years there.

Right, so now he claims we are only just building our "identity" and the last few seasons were just to consolidate our position.

This is literally, the slowest build ever.

I'm not sure exactly what kind of identity we are trying to build now? We have very little shape, organisation and the players often look like they just met in the car park before kick off.

He must need another 4 years pension contributions to get him to retirement.

He’s on the wind up with the fans I’m convinced he’s trolling us now.

Will your possible replacements being from HSH agency or own personal choice?

We talk about people currently with HSH. To be honest we haven’t spent a great deal of time discussing our preferred replacements because I don’t believe Mowbray is under any pressure from Venky’s and won’t be going anywhere soon.

On air from 6pm - 7pm

also worth noting we recorded yesterday afternoon before his latest interviews. There’d be some talking points with this latest nonsense.

It reads very condescending but thanks for explaining it isn’t.

Mate, I’ve kept my powder dry for many months but WOW!! He can’t just write off 3yrs to make it fit his rhetoric like that...surely the powers that be feel the same!?

Please just get rid of him now. I have a lot of respect for you Tony but that will soon change if you carry on talking utter nonsense in these interviews, as well as playing £5m strikers at full back of course... I honestly think he’s losing the plot, put him out of his clear misery and sack him! I appreciate everything he’s done here, he’s a top bloke and a football man but it’s TIME TO GO!

‘We’re really only 28 games into this journey’ must be the new ‘judge me after 3 transfer windows’ (or however many it was).
