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

It’s easy to be gracious when you’ve left Ewood with three points and your team barely getting their shorts dirty.

The two things that made me laugh from Woodgate’s comments though-

‘Tony Mowbray’s teams play good football’.

Wrong, Jonathan.

‘He’s the most passionate coach’.

Wrong again, Jonathan. He practically falls asleep on the touch line and looks bored out of his head on March days....

I think it's easy for them to confuse waffle with passion.

Just because he can talk a glass eye to sleep about football doesn't mean he's a passionate manager. He comes across more like a fan or pundit at times, commentating on things whilst remaining detached from it himself.

A rare talent considering he's talking about his own flipping team losing again.

How Woodgate and others can say that after one win in 15 ,just shows you can't take them seriously. They are just covering for their mate. Simple as. 

Good description of Mowbray actually, detached, delusionaly detached.

As sure as night follows day,the self preservation society of Footballers and Managers close ranks even in the face of complete shitness.

What next...the Soccer Saturday Muppets putting the boot into the evil Rovers fans again?

The rank mismanagement and poor leadership of our once great club has never been dragged so low into the shoddy dirty mud. There is no respect for the name of BRFC, the legacy of Jack Walker and the history of those who have represented this club and not to mention the unadulterated lack of respect and understanding of our supporters.

This lot are a total and utter set of fukwits🤬🤬

There's some real idiots on there. So idiotic that I'm convinced they're either club plants or Burnley fans.

Beetlejuice another let thicky. Him and reg rover make a good pair 

There's an annoyingly patronising note of faux-grandiosity about the posts from Reg and Beetlejuice over there.

Another day passes by with the immune Mowbray leading us into another game. The silence from the clubs board and CEO is astonishing. The only person we ever hear is from Mowbray himself....talking up what a good job hes doing. 

Cant believe the club is paying Waggot a wage. Literally does nothing.

Today would seem to be Mercer's day of reckoning.

He's been on that long walk since 3 pm yesterday, pounding the moors like Heathcliff, head buzzing from all that 'noise' and 1988 Monticello...

He tries to sell the training ground, to be fair. So he's keeping busy. Useless at sacking managers though. A key function of being CEO. Dysfunctional.

I agree. They actually think they are clever and those who oppose them are thick.

What I find interesting about this article is that two Nobbers spoke up for Neil decrying the notion he had lost the players and yet I've seen nothing (although I don't do the trendy social media sites) from any Rovers player speaking up for Mowbray. One of the Lancashire Live articles mentions an unsubstantiated bust up with Travis.

No change until the end of the season imo. We are stuck with him. 

Hopefully we go on a winning spell soon but my fear is that if that happens it gives a clean slate in the summer. You have to wonder how many losses it will take for him to be potted or, perhaps more importantly, how many more losses we can stomach before entering a relegation battle.

Pretty sure Travis is fit and well.

His missus liking anti Rovers tweets about how it's going downhill.

Someone tweeted that his cousin said he was fit (I haven't found the tweet though)

Relegation mission will be full on next season.

Wouldn't be surprised i mean how dare we get angry and worried at a run like that. We are only Blackburn Rovers the smallest backwater club in England with the budget of Bamber Bridge Fc.

Should be so grateful to still have the God of midtable football wasting that budget on his mates.

I can't help thinking back to one of the very few times the owners came out of the woodwork and advised that they were confused.

He was pretty sharp when asked why Travis wasn't playing 

He rushed him back lauding he would "kick his granny" to win. Travis came back a shadow of himself. 

I wouldn't be surprised if there was some clash

If there's any ounce of truth in it, Mowbray needs sacking just for that. I'm not having our better players getting sidelined/hounded out of the club due to his piss poor management.

Anyone else had a call from the club today?

Just picked up a voicemail from "Les" asking if I'd be back next season & to call him back if I'd any concerns.

That's going to be an interesting discussion when I call him back!

Quote from Mowbray:

When asked about Travis' absence, Mowbray replied: “Not fit, not picked, not selected, not ready yet.”
