Interesting observation about the players on social media or lack of! Even Dack isn’t on there after his operation being done which is the exact opposite of his last one. Even his missus isn’t commenting so I wonder if there is a complete blackout of players interacting with the fans?

According to my daughter, Barry Douglas posted a picture of him & his kid in Astley Park a week or so ago if that counts! 😅

Seriously though,  if they're all quiet then that's odd, especially Dack & Olivia, they usually thrive on the attention.

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

Dack's posted on Instagram today about his Euro 2020 sticker album. 

You usually don't get too much after a defeat, maybe a 'looking forward to putting it right next game' from Holtby, or Elliott posts a lot too but he probably can't wait for the season to be over now.

It's when we scrape a draw or win that they all come out of the woodwork.

People said 3pm so we wait and see.

It's a bit like saying on such and such a day the world will end. No-one has an inside track to the inner sanctum of Venkys apart from family so it's all rumours driven by wishful thinking

Rumours are rumours mate 😂.

As I've stated I'm not ITK at all, people who have contacts have stated something is potentially going on.

You'd much rather rumours were posted than not at all.

The club don't really have any choice but to sack him given the form. Must be going at some point.

As an aside the current situation is a really common occurrence for Mowbray isn't it? 2 years or so of decentish results then falls off a cliff. At it's fundamental level seems to be a combination of lack of resilience in the squad and lack of practicality of tactics. Means when his teams start getting beat they really struggle to turn it around. Fair weather team you could say....

Personally mate I love the rumours, not just about the manager but about the club in general. Whether I believe them is another matter but many spark debate and keep this message board ticking over.

Keep 'em coming. 😁😁😁

It's very strange. It's a comment that'd be acceptable for a youth/reserve team manager to come out with, but a first team manager? Makes no sense at all. Especially when you take into account our performances are terrible anyway! The man is either in a completely delusional state or is trolling the owners in an attempt to get them to sack him. 

Delusional

Something that Mowbray's backers like to say is that he has turned the club around but from what I can see the same problems remain that were here when he took over. We still have disinterested owners (not his fault granted), when Mowbray goes we will again be without a CEO as I don't see Waggott staying long after Mowbray, we have no football brain at boardroom level (which has given Mowbray a completely free reigned to do anything with no question asked), we have half a squad out of contract in the summer and very few assets to sell on. 

Behind the scenes the club is rotten and needs a complete revamp. Get rid of Mowbray, Waggott, Venus and Pasha. Get in a Director of Football (and put him on the board) who is in charge of overseeing football operations at boardroom level and also responsible for recruiting a new manager and his coaching staff. Get in a CEO by doing a proper interviewing process (although who is doing the interviewing is another worrying question) and appoint someone with no connections to anyone at the club. 

Do that and then we might resemble a proper football club. But that is one heck of a challenge to do over 1 summer especially with the massive squad overhaul we are likely to see and it is also a damning indictment of the owners, Mowbray, Waggott, Venus, Pasha that all this needs to be done immediately. This is what happens when a manager basically gets a free reign for 4 years and it must never be allowed to happen again.

The rumour spread from here to Twitter is pretty embarrassing. It's this sort of thing that kept us linked with Marcus Maddison for four transfer windows.

It was from here and then 1 individual said he had heard the same and he's not associated with BRFCs so it's hardly spread.

It's ten years now and things have simply, lurched from one disaster to another. No sign of things getting any better, any time soon and given that we have an extra zero added to the debt and we are at least one division lower for now, the future looks increasingly bleak.

It was yourself that posted something on Twitter that made out that it was gospel, except someone has now added 3pm to it. I don't see what people gain from it.

EDIT: Sorry, just seen the tweet where you also mentioned 3pm. As far as I'm aware, there was no mention of 3pm from the two users that 'broke' the rumour.

Agreed, somebody like say, John Williams & Tom Finn would be great....oh, wait a minute!

He's only got to keep quiet for a couple of days. Then by Thursday people will have calmed down and attention will turn to Saturday.

There will be folk then saying we can't or shouldn't axe him a day or two before a game, let's see how Cardiff goes FFS.

Maybe he'll get lucky and we'll get a "positive result" at Cardiff after their smashing yesterday. If we do he'll be secure for a while longer without serious scrutiny.

I wonder if he'll be chartering another £30,000 private flight down to Cardiff for this one? 

Just imagine the vacuum down at Ewood after a defeat. Not a single person on the payroll will say a word against St Tony. Not even the CEO.

All happy to take home their good wages including our merchandise and ticket money but not rock the boat at happy camp Ewood.

He's not even worthy of the CEO job title. Got the job through his mate and can't do it properly, either because he won't upset his mate or the owners don't give him the power.
