I would disagree. He has outlasted his welcome for quite a bit now, we are stagnating for sure. But he isnt threatening the long term future of our club.

Shutting Brockall would constitute a major threat to our future.

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

Agreed and I think this training pitch situation isn't the most important issue at the moment. That is replacing the manager and backroom team. To build for next season.

I know how Tony loves a stat, so here’s a few for him: 

Lost the last 4

Last 15 matches (all comps):

Conceded first in 12

Scored in the first half twice

Won 4 

Scored 12

4 wins in 15.

He left Coventry after a run of 10 games without a win.

Give us a break like you did Coventry Tony! (though don't leave Venus behind this time)

The logical thing to do now would be to bring in a new manager now that a play off finish is unrealistic and play predominantly the players that he plans to keep in a formation that he would like to play, consistently.

If they dont go up this season, I would suspect teams such as Forest and Cardiff will be much stronger with managers having already started to mould the team into the way they would like. As it is, Mowbray will still be overseeing confusion well into next season. Demoralising.

I'm genuinely struggling to come to terms with the arrogance of the man and his 'performance-related' comments. They really are Kean-esque.

Mowbray obviously thinks he's bigger than the club if he thinks his 'philosophies' are more important than results.

I've never known any other manager come out with such nonsense. Ever. 

Results matter, nothing else.

Mowbray Out.

We are still in the dark about the exact plans, but even assuming that they are a major threat, it isnt of Mowbrays doing.

The only indirect way in which he would be responsible is not getting us promoted to date.

Mowbray has played some part. If its about money then his failure to get rovers promoted in the past 3 seasons despite good financial backing would mean rovers have missed out on hundreds of millions.  If its not about money then we'll never mind

Ya, I'm approaching Kean like levels of frustration now. If he goes soon though, I will move on from that and recognise the good job he did, to a point. I hope it doesn't drag to the point where he damages the good work he did do.

Are you having a LAUGH?

This 'training pitch issue' ??? ARE YOU HAVING A GODDAM GIRAFFE? It is an Existential Crisis for this club. Nothing less.

Methinks you just let your colours slip there pal.

'Training pitch issue..." Pah!

Not sure Dario ever spunked 7 or 5 million on players that probably wouldn't raise a million if sold today

Rumour has it if you took a few words out of that quote that statement would be pretty true

If it weren’t Rovers, it’d be fascinating to think about how this is going to play out.

He isn’t going to walk.

Waggott won’t or has no jurisdiction to replace him.

Pasha looks to have no inclination or power to do anything.

Venkys don’t appear to care one way or the other.

How will it end?

You ok hun?

I said it wasn't the most pressing issue, as in its not going to be solved over night, whereas Mowbray could be sacked and replaced in a few days. Setting us up with a manager who can work with the squad for next season, at least.
