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

Actually I just looked at the most extended highlights I could find of that game and a 4 goal thrashing would have been more apt. But this is one of the games that has been well reported as a great battling performance and deserved point.  But I do not think there are many or even any games out there where a 4 goal defeat (as would have been deserved) could be described as such.

I demand a dR (deserved Results) table. I know Mowbray and his supporters have continually banged on about all these close defeats where we supposedly should have got more. But I can not help thinking back to those results where we actually got something and did not deserve anything had chances and officials done a better job.

Case in point. Boro away where we won 1-0 and took the 3 points. That kick in the head at 0-0 that went unnoticed for some reason should have been a Boro penalty and more than likely a deserved sending off. So we would have been 1-0 down and deservedly a man down in that game. With a deserved defeat being the likely outcome.

I suspect in a dR table we would be facing very real relegation battle. How about the win in the first game against Millwall where our defence were trying to play basketball in the last few minutes. We were very lucky not to concede a penalty and hence throw away 2 points.

Even taking our last game into account. I think Kaminsky deserved to be sent off. Imagine being a man down against Cardiff with Pears in goal, would we have got a draw? (How many would have been looking forward to Pears being in goal in an upcoming relegation fight match?).

I guess you could argue we could have picked up a few points extra in games where we were more unlucky (Was Armstrong's disallowed goal against Stoke ever shown to be onside? That was one of the only games where I really came away at the end thinking we perhaps should have won). Either way overall I think we would undoubtedly be on less points than we are now given dR. And where I think we are safe already on 47 points. If we were deservedly on a few less points than that, we would still have work to do in some nervous relegation battles.

To summarise, dR is probably less BS than any kind of xG analysis and we would be in a dESERVED relegation dogfight. Whereas our luck has allowed us to escape any relegation threat and plod along until the end of the season with most fans being in a Mowbray inspired coma.

He wants sacking for his ramblings alone. How on earth the media let him get away with chatting this constant rollocks is astounding. They’re all just laughing their tits off at us all.

This.

Would this situation be acceptable to any other football club owners?...fans of other clubs will be pissing themselves laughing at such stupid comments by Mowbray the madman.

It's a fecking Circus.

I can picture it now. His end of season meeting will be like a gender reveal party. There will be a big explosion as some giant balloons with our final league position float into the sky. Mowbray puts a positive spin on the fact we've stayed up.

Doesn't do formation's, doesn't do work on set pieces, doesn't look at the league table. What exactly does he do? He should be sacked for negligence. 

You miss off an important one,

Mowbray doesn't do results cos he is performance based manager Mowbray.

What a 🤡 he has become now with comments like that. Can't defend him or his comments anymore. They just get strike me as a manager under huge pressure cos his tactical approach or style of play hasn't work, his 2 majority cash signings, 3 players won't re-sign contracts despite being offered new contracts.

Needs to be sack immediately

Be the easiest end of season meeting in Pune ever,

’So you said your target was top 6, did you hit it?’

’Dunno, haven’t looked’.

“Is there any way of finding out ?”

”Not that I’m aware of...”

”Well have another go then...”

He sleeps like a pro during matches, you've got to give him that.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but it says everything when you see posts like this regarding our manager from chaddy. It is nice to see you on the dark side, welcome, as it's clear you won't swing back.

A junior, cliche mad and out of his depth journalist making an article as characteristically vague as ever in cobbling together a set of easy assumptions. Nothing to see here.

How is Jaquob Crooke a junior journalist? 

The article says his position will be review at end of the season. So how is easy assumption? Considering you think he will be still here next season surely you must be happy if his position will be review then?

No not taken the wrong way at all. 

I'm fed up of him now and his comments. He needs to go. That's performance based manager bollocks really annoyed me and I found its completely the wrong thing to say in results based industry. 

We need a new manager or Sporting director/head coach structure in place for next season to move our club forward. Cos under Mowbray's journey we are on highway to nowhere. He said he built a top 6 quality squad here to Andy Bayes. How wrong he was

Wow, wow, wow.

I’m a teacher. Can you imagine if I said to parents, or my head teacher, or to my employers at the council  “I don’t know how my pupils perform in their exams, because I don’t look at their exam results”?

Is there anybody on this website who could conceivably come out with such bullshit with regards to their performance at work? Imagine a manager at one of their battery chicken factories telling the local Indian paper “I don’t know how many chickens we have sold, because I don’t look at sales figures”. 
 

I thought reading about ‘expected goals’ was the daftest thing I would read in a long time. Now we have a manager of a football team claiming to not know what the league table looks like - in April!

I want to work for Venkys. What a laugh: 

“How much shit did you shovel today RoverInverness?” 

“I don’t know Mr. Pasha, I never looked at the pile”

“OK, we will review in summer”

Easy money. Literally stealing a living.

 

I’m a nurse. Imagine if I said “ is he going to make it, I duno , I never check his results ,hopefully fingers crossed I can speak to a consultant in a few months and we can take it from there . I’m sure in the next four or five tests something positive will turn up“

“Are you doing everything you possibly can to keep him alive”

“I’m selling his heart monitor and buying state of the art stethoscopes,

What has been unprecedented about this season and why is that an excuse for poor performance?

Everyone has been in the same boat.

Its just a convenient excuse.

To their credit Venkys could have forced sales or cut costs last summer due to the pandemic but didn't. So there's nothing in the excuse book about that.

The only excuses Mowbray can have are empty stadia and busier fixture lists.

He's lucky on both counts.

Empty stadia ought to affect us less with our 10,000 a week 2/3 empty ground than the titans like Bristol City with their 30000 a week crowds or whatever Mowbray reckons they get.

He's also been able to assemble his own squad over 3 years leading into the pandemic whilst others have had no time or scope to prepare and are still dealing with others legacies.

'The situation will be reviewed once the season has been completed, with an investigation into how the campaign deteriorated and how the club propose to move forward. Owners' Representative Suhail Shaikh and Chief Executive Steve Waggott will be at the centre of those discussions'

Mogga's bestie and a bloke who knows nowt about football will decide Mogga's future. What could possibly go wrong.🙄

The dullard is staying.

I would have liked, but I can never give any credit to the Loons. I just think they have left the terrible triplets to their own devices, otherwise they would have shown them the doors ten games ago. They have just let us drift, by losing money hand over fist. Still don't get it!
