What time have managers been sacked at in the past?

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

I met Mr Venky in Trinidad (they have a share of the Trinbago Knight Riders cricket team).

He barely knew what Blackburn Rovers is.

Do you remember the interview he did where he looked utterly bemused and kept on repeating "we are confused"? He wasn't kidding. 8 years on and nothing has changed in that sense. Their lack of care and knowledge has allowed shysters and crooks to have a feast at the club's expense. It angers me too much thinking about it.

My personal view is that Balaji is the only one (maybe his son too now) who has a fleeting 'interest' in the club, the rest of them aren't bothered. We won't get our club back until they leave, because as long as they remain here they will always be a target for the chancers out there.

Do you think we could genuinely challenge for promotion with Carter and Magloire involved regularly? The latter spent half of this season in non league. It would be another failed chance to fix the defence.

Well we still cant after the financial backing Mowbray had in terms of wages and fees. 

I rather use Maglorie and Carter then keep signing the wrong type of players like Ayala who you want. 

We looked best with Lenihan and Wharton as our defensive partnership. We already need at least a left back in provide back up Pickering. Possible 1st choice right back

Spot on,this is exactly the situation we face.

UK time i'm guessing?

We are in the sacking zone now then.

He genuinely sounds like he can't believe he hasn't been sacked yet - or at least shocked that he hasn't heard rumblings it's imminent. Welcome to a club being run by Indian chicken farmers who don't give a fuck Tony, this is how this place works. Makes me sick to my stomach.

I think we have to accept that he will be here to oversee a defeat to burton in league one next season.

I reckon, providing he pulls out enough wins to get us safe this season (which i personally doubt) Venkys won't even consider binning him.

So he could very well be here next season. I think if we hit the bottom 3, Venky's would pull the trigger (with it being too late)

Possibly pal, give up hoping he will go.

I wonder if losing to United 'shames' the owners into taking action? If I remember rightly, Allardyce was sacked after a heavy defeat at Old Trafford. Coyle was sacked after the FA Cup defeat to United. There's plenty of United fans in India, maybe even among Balaji's group of friends for him to lose face on those occasions.

Could just be a coincidence, I suppose. I'm just wondering what the heck it will take for them to do something.

He’s not going anywhere yet maybe a few more losses but he went sympathy vote on sky, then in-house how unlucky we are. So he’s tried to shift the narrative whilst having a dig at fans

Please can we have a whip round, and organise a snap game against United? That's what I would call 'Crowd Funding' with a purpose...

Better times, I'm afraid 😉

Good night from Asia here. Hopefully tomorrow will be a new beginning.

If that new beginning is Mowbray continuing to oversee our slide down the table then, that’s our new beginning

Can you imagine letting Bruno Fernandez loose against our current midfield! 🤣

I don't know what would be worse, the inevitable drubbing or the sympathy from some of their fans afterwards.

I know a number of their fans who are sympathetic towards us these days. There's even a thread on one of their forums about Rovers with some saying they miss us and want us back in the Prem. I preferred it when they hated playing us.
