I can't see skint Ipswich paying compo for him.

Also i wouldn't call him a failure that's a bit ott, i know the guy is beginning to grate but lets keep it on the level. He's just doing what he always does all the evidence is out there. This is his level of operating and his way of working is only conducive to ending seasons somewhere in the middle 3rd.

It's what he's good at you might say so any club looking to establish itself in that group could do a lot worse. 

Here though just like at Boro it's time to try and move it up a notch.  It's time for the first time in Venkys tenure for these billionaires to step away from the shackles of the HSH scrapyard and source a manager either with a name, a pedigree or look at the over achievers in this league who are operating on smaller budgets.

It can be done, there's no guarantees but that's just part and parcel of it all. The better candidate you go after the better chance you have of success.

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

in my current despise of mowbray the manager ,i have to say we should have absolutely annihilated everyone in our league one season and should have won the league by 15/20 points,he had us playing with the choke in all the way through and did`nt even have the balls to go for the title,we could get away with it in a lower league,at this higher level all his faults are there for everyone to see

Who took us down? Coyle may have started the process but he didn’t finish it. We had a chance to stay up, lack of ambition in games such as Preston and somebody else , fails me, but anyway we drew 0-0. Relegated. I don’t see much particularly good that any journeyman manager wouldn’t have been able to do. Not my head that needs wobbled, it’s your tinted specs . Open your eyes lad 

Leeds spend 3 seasons in league one how many 'journey men' managers did they go through. What about Sunderland? 

Maybe you need to take your doom and gloom specs off and realise that alot of good work has been done during Mowbrays tenure.

Do we need compo. Not having to pay him off would be more than enough if he walked away.

Prediction: Mowbray will win one and draw two of the next five and the train will rumble on.

WDL.

Only when Waggott goes and there is some accountability will anything else change.

Venkys will only get involved when we are in the bottom three.

My prediction. Finish the season in 14th. Then a nice juicy contract extension for Mowbray.

I’m not going by other so called bigger clubs that shouldn’t be there failures. I’m going by what Iv seen with my own eyes and my own beliefs for my club and it’s ambition. Mowbray doesn’t work for either

I can just hope that Watford don't wup us 6-0 next Wednesday likethey did Bristol City. Who knows what Venkys might do in response that loss of face?

We got lucky with Souey and the Barcodes, I can't see lightning striking twice in the same place.

Be great if Souness could be convinced to return, if only to slap some sense into Venkys.

He ain't walking with over a year left so there'd have to be some sort of severance.

Best way all around would be make the decision now that we need to change in summer. Stick to it no matter if we improve a bit and finish strong as usual with the dead rubbers. Then shake hands say thanks, pay him up and move on .... or away from 1st team duties at least.

Has Mowbray ever 'walked' before?

"It's embarrassing to go 10 games without a win. I'm an honourable guy." Tony Mowbray resigns as Coventry (L1) manager - September 2016

About 4 months later he was Rovers manager.

I honestly think we could be at the start of the spiral to end all death spirals and genuinely could go 10 games without a win... He still won't walk though.

Someone mentioned he was on the scrapheap when he arrived here and they weren't wrong so I doubt he'd give up a good thing, especially with no crowds or chairman on his back.

No one's doubting that. 

Promotion from League 1 was a good achievement and, because the other teams were generally poor, we had a good time. 

He's signed some good players. 

Apart from that, his football is awful. He took us down because he couldn't get the team to win more games. Three seasons of mediocrity. 

We aren't progressing. The football is just abysmal. 

Taxi for mowbray.

I remember there wasn't much love for him when it was announced. Plenty of good will and giving him support but with a general feeling of "why him?"

One aspect within this lock down scenario, is that we are not there to voice our displeasure. No chants of TM out will be heard within Ewood and so the pressure upon Mowbray is lesser. Since we cannot do that I have been wondering if we could not voice our concerns in a different manner? I have always liked the 'taxi' analogy, so perhaps we could order TM one? Each that is, either all at one time IE 100 taxis (paid for by us) turn up at Ewood for TM. Perhaps they could be spread out across a day? One every 15 or so mins? I think that would be quite humourus 😂👍
