I think it's pretty clear the fat lady is clearing her throat.

Wouldn’t surprise me if they are given until the end of season, either that they’ll be gone next week

Even if your optimistic theories are true, what would it make you think of owners who decide when they have lost faith in a manager rather than dealing with it and sacking him, they just dont deal with him at all and fob him off to Pasha, and also that they will only get a manager from one agency?

Cos this lack of communication between the owners and manager happened twice before with Bowyer and Lambert. 

Mowbray admitted this about a month I think that he doesnt have direct contact with the owners anymore and deals with Pasha now. 

The last 4 managers have come from that agency. No reason to think it wont again.

Even if hes not under pressure with the owners, he still will feel pressure from the media and try to justify himself. He will still be here next season. We have collected 6 point from 7 games since that Reading game when he supposedly sounded under pressure, so its clearly not from the owners.

He has felt the pressure for weeks now. Probably since that Reading game. His comments are directly towards the owners and not the fans cos of the lack of direct contact. He has felt the pressure the media and some question over his future. 

Its one win in 14 games which is unacceptable. He said he had built a top 6 quality team this season. his words. We are 17th in the league which is unacceptable totally. Of course he is under pressure from them after they backed his slow plan and backed him financially in terms of transfer fees and wages. Do you think they bankrolled it to finish 17th in the league? 

If you think he will be here next season fine BUT others don't including myself. I know your view already so why keep posting it?

I dont feel like you have addressed my question. Do you think that an absence of communication between Mowbray and the owners, and also a narrow minded and dodgy approach of only considering managers from a particular agency are healthy ways to run a football club?

If they choose another manager from the same agency then it will prove furthermore that have learnt sweet F**k all

Like Chaddy says the last four managers appointed from that particular agency's stable and they were all failures.

Lying earlier this week then, was he?

“I talk about the games to them, what they saw, they don’t like to lose as I don’t like to lose, but they see the team performing at a level.”

That's their way they do it. 

I dont think Mowbray should have a direct line the owners. Everything should go Pasha and good CEO(not Waggott)

The last 4 managers have come from that Agency. Mowbray has done well but this season is unacceptable, Bowyer did a fairly good job but couldnt take us further, Lambert not here long enough as I think he would have got us top 6, Coyle was disaster. 

I hope they dont use any agency but appoint the best candidate whether it British manager like Wilder, Hughes, Neil, Ainsworth for example or we go foriegn head coach like Rosler or Ivic for example with Sporting director in place.

So he was lying this week then and he doesn’t have post match chats where they discuss Gallagher out wide and all the rest of his tactical master strokes?

The problem with sacking him next week is, what if (by some miracle) we win tomorrow? Unlikely to sack him after a win, surely?

They usually get “out wide” mixed up with down the leg side.

Not sure they’ll care i suspect they didn’t know the full impact of brockhall, and will act accordingly

Yes, he very much was. Either that or he seems to think that Pasha ‘is’ the owners.

I don't subscribe to the notion that the Brockhall fiasco is off the table just because some nomark journalist has tweeted a picture (.jpg) that it is.. 

Happy enough if it is the case though, and will wave goodbye to the end of Tony Mowbray and his gurning indifference to my club with the rest of ye. 

COYB! TIME FOR A CHANGE!

I don't think he remembers what he has said from one week to the next have to say am becoming a tad concerned these contradictions have become more and more prevalent in the last six months

I don't think the announcement means they are going but I do think it shows a loss of trust and a natural withdrawal. 

Interesting that it was a clubs spokesman and not Waggott. Sulking?

I think if it was linked to them going that would be announced first.

I also think its about withdrawing trust as it seems clearer certain players won't be here next season e.g. Nyambe almost as though they wanted more funds to convince him to stay and now the owners are pulling back its clearer its the 12 month option, sell or tribunal.

I'll say it again the Journey is just a strapline to India, a sales pitch if you like.

There is no journey with this team how could there be ?  Half of it might be gone in summer. So really it's outright bull he's just saying please stick with me i want to keep this cushy job and keep all my mates in wages.

He’s mentioned the journey so many times now I’m half expecting the team to walk out to don’t stop believing which is ironic in itself 😂

Mowbray's Journey:

Infinity, Evolution, Departure

Infinity - was the 4 year contract

Evolution - the failed transition to tippy tappy

Departure - hopefully the Ewood release is very soon

So brockhall is of the table. Maybe the penny dropped with our long distance owners that they where just about to get dicked. Loss of cat 1 would have been a disaster and that was going to happen.Waggot is a chancer. Mowbray a poor manager. Venus is mainly asleep.

This may be the point where we say goodbye. In my opinion god help any club that they end up at.
