Incredible that he's allowed near a professional football club.

Arrogant prick. 

very arrogant,he really does believe the fans and media don`t know the game,i can tell you he`s lost the dressing room,respect and finally he`s lost all the fans as well

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'm flabbergasted with his comments in that interview. Think performance based coach nonsense has annoyed the hell out of me. Tony, we live in a result driven businesses. Win games is the name of the games not performances. 

This is your squad Mowbray that you have built and earlier in the season you said it was top 6 quality so why are 17th in the league and 1 win in last 14 games and haven't score in 24 1st half in 40 games this season?

Well I think this is the nub of the problem. If you think the performances are good no wonder we are on a terrible run.

I'm also a tad bemused that you think that the results and performances have no correlation. Perhaps in one or two games but not 14. If TM genuinely can't see the correlation between the two or thinks performances have been good he is utterly deluded. 

Or he doesn't think that's the case and he is utterly lying. Lying to save his sorry hide. Which would make a mockery of Mr Integrity.

So either he is deluded or lying. Either way it shows his time is up. 

 

It's always going to be an issue when you have a manager who for the majority of his career played for shit football teams and was an average player at best himself, and thinks that's the standard to aim for.

Wish one of the journalists would bring up his 'honourable man' quote from Coventry and ask what's changed since then? Why was it honourable to walk away from Coventry but not Rovers, despite this run being worse than the last one he resigned on the back of?

I don’t agre wit( those who slag Gally and Brereton signings. Both are good players who have had their reputations destroyed by being played out of position by this inept manager.

Anyone with any sense can se that experimenting with Gally playing out wide with little Tyris in the middle is a fukwit of a decision. Same wit( playing BB out wide left. Both are centre forwards and should be central alongside Armstrong!

Under a proper manager I would back both to score goals with a supply line on the pitch.

Mowbray has gone stale and it has transmitted itself into the players.

A performance-related coach in a results-driven sport. Well that can’t end well.

Maybe if our possession stats drop but results improve he’ll go then, eh?

The guy is taking the mick out of every single one of us.

Lockdown has been the second best thing* to happen to Mowbray. Having no fans on his back, no booing in the ground. Will be very interesting to see how his relationship with the press develops if this run continues.

Both get a clean slate for me when a new manager comes in. I sigh when I see gally starting but that's how he is used by the manager and the damage the manager has done to him.

He’s a performance related manager. Ok. He’s said it before. But he’s also said:

And that was the game where I said Dack had saved his arse. He was starting to get dogs abuse before Dack popped up with the winner.

What I didn't think was that he'd STILL be here nearly 2 years later!

Thats Kean level delusional.

Performances are not 'generally good'

He needs to be replaced with a results related coach.

Agree lockdown has been a huge help for him as no criticism. Given he cannot take even the slightest bit of questioning (how arrogant) it's probably only fed into his god complex as well. 

As for the press - I'm yet to see any real challenge. And if 1 win in 14 doesn't garner more searching questions I can't see 1 in 15 or even 20 doing so either.

He’s just not in touch with reality. We’ve not played well this calendar year. Millwall was ok, everything else has been a range of poor to atrocious

This might be Mowbray's last 'big' job, that is, with a relatively 'established' Championship club. I think, after successive capitulations in his managerial jobs, the shine he had from his West Brom management days, when they, I believe, got promoted into the Premiership playing attractive football, will have long faded. In the least, he will be out of a job for some time, when he does leave, before he is in the running for any upper tier manager job.

Moreover, I think his repeated references in the above post-match interview to getting players to "understand" the game, might be a form of sublimation (wild speculation on my part, I concede) and a way of saying that he doesn't understand the game anymore. The game has evolved (not necessarily for the better, in my view), teams are playing with three in the middle, often, and Mowbray hasn't worked out, this season, how to replicate it or counter it. The results of having strikers out wide, defending at full back or swinging in crosses, unsuccessfully, has been embarrassing but not unusual.

There is no forward planning. Today, we had four central midfielders (five, if you include Bennett) on the bench. Some of them, likely, won't be here next season. It makes little sense, except, as a favour to senior players or a hapless lack of foresight.

Mowbray out isn't enough - it has to Mowbray-ism out. That is, tactical confusion, old pals acts with signings, impetuousness and lack of planning and building of the squad. The sad truth is, Mowbrayism is an endemic part of the English game, so picking a new boss will not be simple.

Edit: I should acknowledge that he did get Rovers promoted from League 1 and that will be a positive in his CV when it comes to looking for roles in the future. Might make him attractive to an aspiring League 1/2 side, perhaps.
