I reckon 4 points will do it. Surely we can manage that 

Surely....

I can see us getting draws but atm i genuinely can't see us getting a win. 

If we potted him now I think you would get a reaction from the players

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. 

God of Midtable? We wish! God of Two Relegations to League One is starting to look more like it.

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.

Raya, Nyambe - He has form on this.

Raya deserved it and I think the Nyambe thing has grown a life of his won. JRC starting ahead of them isn't that controversial. Some of his comments about Nyambe are strange, but by and large he does start him.

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. 

In football everyone looks after themselves.

It’s entirely possible that Woodgate could be reporting to Mowbray at some point in the future (at least in his). Either assistant manager and manager or manager and DoF.

They never badmouth anyone, and will always keep up appearances.

Even Warnock signed El Hadji Diouf not long after calling him a ‘sewer rat’!

@Bigdoggsteel You know it's all your fault, don't you? If only you'd agreed with my suggestion of Damien Johnson as caretaker, Mowbray and co would be gone. 

Not really. That would assume someone in Pune read this message board and took note of what is being said. Yeah, I know, fat chance.

We're such a well run club, Woodgate, that we're under a transfer embargo, again.

Speaking of LET, a poster Mumbai Rover got called a "troll". That particular response was to a post that was saying rumour in India has it that Venkys want to sell the club at the end of next season and are just looking to extract what value they can.

It's a mite difficult to sell a club that has negative market value as per the Rovers Trust analysis. Liquidation is a more likely outcome and given the size of Trading creditors, sooner than than later. Only the advance payment of Sky TV revenue staved off administration in 2012 (I think that was the year) and unsubstantiated rumours that the HMRC has come after the club chasing tax payments.

Blackburn Rovers Football and Athletic Limited is not being run as a 'going concern'.

EDIT----Sorry Rover Inverness---just seen your post above. Great minds and all that!

Kevin Gallagher is a prime example, he’s become increasingly critical on Radio Lancs, but when asked outright if TM should go, he, of course, ducked the question.

Why? Because he has links with the club through his soccer schools and the Former Players Association and doesn’t want to rock the boat. Now, he gets potted tomorrow and he’ll be on t’wireless on Saturday saying how it ‘was the right decision by the club because of x, y and z ’.

It rivals public schools for the old boys network.

Nixon just tweeted "Half term cleansing incoming ..."

Is it Mowbray?

Won’t he just mean ‘blocking fuds’? I.e half term brings all the kids out on social media...

Might just be his way of saying he’s having a bath. He’s honestly a bigger whopper than anything ever seen at Burger King, so it’s anyone’s guess really....

Fuck of Woodgate you prick

Hold up.

"He's the most passionate manager I've probably worked for"

Probably? So Woodgate is not even sure if he has worked for him and so not 100% sure who he is talking about?

It is PROBABLY just a robotic stock reply he has somewhere in his tiny brain that is activated by pseudo journalists. Which would make the most sense as the response is pure BS in this given case.

@Mercer @oldjamfan1 

Have you heard anything more from this source? 

All he said yesterday was "its all gone very quiet which in itself is unusual".

He also initially thought that both Waggott and Mowbray were going in the summer but that they are now bringing that forward. I've known this guy for over 40 years and he's not normally one to spread gossip or make things up, so I definitely think that something is happening, but always at Venky pace!!!!

Anyone tracking Rovers players instagrams?  Not much of a InstaFAN me so dont really use that platform.  Any pics/posts from training?

Very quiet (not that I think it means anything, unfortunately). Harvey Elliott has been signed up by New Balance Football so he's been modelling their clothes.

Oh and Barry Douglas says 'every day is a new day to learn'. Inspiring stuff. That's about it!

With a normal club I'd be okay with this as I'd assume they were taking their time in order to source an immediate, high quality replacement.

In this case however, I just assume that when/if they do sack him it will be a decision that no-one else at the club knows about and we'll end up with Paul Jewell in charge

You mean yesterday he was of that opinion, as a result of the silence?

No, he had already been told that they were going in the summer (sometime around the Norwich game).
