We have always said that he'll never be as bad as Kean or Coyle and this has been taken as fact. I think it is time to actually compare.

Compared to Kean:

1. No drink-driving lies or agent interference (known that is).

2. Players with family connections signed who are objectively not good enough (Myles Anderson / Aynsley Pears).

3. Results of the team are now worse than at any point then.

4. Odd (ludicrous) statements in the press which seem to defy logic.

5. Mowbray does have a managerial record of some sorts before taking over.

So he's not quite as bad (from a criminal standpoint if nothing else) but it is far closer than you'd at first think.

Compared to Coyle:

1. Previous promotion (Coyle with Burnley, Mowbray with West Brom).

2. Tumbling down the league without any seeming halt.

3. No link to Burnley I suppose.

4. Promotion from League 1 (we cannot know if Coyle would have done the same or not).

I would say that he is on a par with Coyle for utter hopelessness but has the potential to get worse if he keeps up this arrogant 'journey' nonsense. Again, it's worrying how he seems to be in company with the worst managers in our history when you ignore emotion.

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

The latest interview says it all.

He's going no where.

All he really needs is 1 win and a couple of draws from the remaining games and he's sorted.

Unbelievable stuff really.

All we can look forward to is selling Arma and Trav in the summer and allowing Nyambe to go to Stoke on a free.

Mowbray can rebuild with Boro cast offs.

He actually makes me feel physically ill. 

"Lose three on the bounce"... In his wildest dreams.

From someone who attended the presser said he’s not walking, and it’s going to be a long summer. I took that to be he’s staying on

After 18 consecutive seasons as a season ticket holder, I will not be renewing, things have to change and I know I won’t be the only one. It’s all very sad and until he’s gone there’s no light at all. We’d be extremely lucky if we have 5000 in the ground next season.. wouldn’t be surprised if one or two teams end up with more fans in our own ground than us. Embarrassing from top to bottom. He has to go or I for one will not give a penny more.

I think Mowbray is taking the p1ss now and, IMO, knows his comments will be inflammatory with some - would he do this if he knew he had a future here? 

IMO, Mowbray has descended into Kean and Coyle territory. 

Humble, honest, a man of integrity?  Not in my book.

This quote stood out for me too.  Obviously written word doesn't offer much insight in to the delivery of a statement, but it feels like another contemptuous, scornful, belittling, snide, barbed comment towards any journalist daring to bring to his attention the glaringly obvious failure of his role.

Facetious insinuations that that there are only two polar opposite methods of running a football club (blindly support the current 'now' failure OR rifle through six managers a season) are not only insane, but also downright disrespectful to anyone daring to question his position. 

Wonder if they all stayed quiet at that point or pointed out that this was indeed the worst run of results in 43 years.... not "losing three on the bounce".

We've suffered two relegations already because of the owner's inability to do anything. It's appalling we haven't had a senior statement addressing this issues at the club given the seemingly near 100% discontented fan base.

If they have a reason to keep him, please let us know what it is.

Because our owners dont give a flying fuck about the club, as has been proven right throughout their time owning us.

He isnt as bad as Coyle or indeed Kean either. We are going backwards, he has long since overstayed his welcome, but he isnt as bad as those 2 and will have to do a lot to get to that stage.

At least he should be gone by the weekend.

He wasn't as bad as Coyle. Isn't though? I'm not sure (see above post for some thoughts)...

This is getting ridiculous now. 1 win in 14. No other owners in the country wouldn't have sacked him by now. 

Annoying, irritating man

Leadership and clarity is needed from our owners and senior executive management. 

Publicly, they should back him or alternatively sack him. 

To say or do nothing are not options.

They watch the games, we all get disappointed when the final result is a defeat, but they watch the games and if they can see some light, where the team is trying to go, see the journey this team is on then they have to make a call. That’s all.

 

Oh, fuck off

A manager and owner that aren’t ‘results orientated’.

Certainly a unique way to run a professional football club...

Expecting me to believe that the owners watch every one of our games and understand what is happening is almost as ridiculous as expecting me to believe that the training ground scheme is being done for the right reasons

Both are lies and BS.
