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

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

Worth noting that Paul Cook has won 2 of his 12 games at Ipswich so far.

They've not scored a goal in 529 minutes of football either.

True, but at the moment I'd have Jim Smith back and he's dead.  He was a proper manager though, I remember him geeing up the Rovers fans on the pitch at Turf Moor, loved him, Mr. Angry.

He's got a worse record than Lambert so far.

Having said that we just need to hope they start going daft and fire Cook then approach Mowbray and Venus.

Leave Cook in charge through the summer and he'll have them thereabouts next season when he sorts their squad out.

I wouldn't bet on it i think they've just lost interest again and heads have gone firmly back in the sand. That seems to be the pattern with them so summer brings either as you were or they leave it to the finance men and we have a fire sale and another impending relegation.

The review, restructure and genuine attempt to move forwards, since the last one, we all crave and the club badly needs remains a very long shot imo.

Aye, you could be and probably are correct.

Seems more likely it will all go wrong when Venkys are concerned.

Ipswich, league 1 really does make sense for Mowbray

Mr Humble won’t lower himself to manage in League 1 again. Remember when we were down there and he kept saying how his ‘methods’ were much more suited to the Championship and how much he disliked the third tier?

I can't believe that this thread is likely to top 600 pages before he gets the boot.

Seriously, what is the tipping point? Is there one?

There were rumours a couple of weeks ago that the press turning had started to tip things against him, however all that seemed to happen on the back of it, was that the Brockhall plans got shelved.

Today, the criticism from Crooke & Sharpe is quite strong (by their standards) and seem to just fall short of saying he needs to go, although, reading between the lines, this is what they're saying.

Has anyone heard even any semblance of a rumour that he's under any sort of pressure? Please, anybody, give me something to cling to. This is like being stuck in Purgatory!

Just noticed this tweet from Bennett.

Laughable how anyone currently connected with Rovers can complain about a lack of consequences to losing!

Completed agreed. Our players need to keep the hell away from social media at the minute.  You’ve won 2 in 17 matches boys. Anyone would have thought we were threatening for the title after the Derby game.

Just pipe down and let some talking be done on the pitch, for once, eh?

Mowbray and his views in the LET are utter rubbish! Once more he doesn’t accept any responsibility for the defeat and indeed nor does he take blame for the other 18 losses🤬🤡🤡🤡🤬

I'm not suggesting waiting is a good idea. He should have been sacked weeks, if not months ago. My point was there is no remaining reason to keep him around once safety is secured. Even if the candidate they want isn't available yet

Never ceases to amaze me how anyone would have the remotest interest in anything he has to say. Has never performed since joining the Club about from a few decent games from central midfield in League 1.

The only thing I want to read from him is that he has found another Club and he won't be sponging off us any longer.

Ditto Waggott.

Should have been landing in a heap outside the gates as soon as he got found out on the Brockhall scam and was forced into the embarrassing climb down.

He will be sacked long before TM.

“Lewis Holtby was the odd one out," Mowbray explained when discussing the German's omission.

"I want to get the young players involved and encourage lads like [John] Buckley.”

We are not entirely safe and he's really not interested in getting the points onboard or winning. All he wants is to encourage young players? He should really take on the U18/U23 coaching roles, and not a first-team manager of a football club.

I would go the opposite way, I have never really sensed any real danger at the bottom (not that its an achievement to clarify) so there should have been an element of forward planning long before last night, but especially now we are at 50 points.

You look at the side last night, Harwood Bellis and Elliott will go back, Evans, Trybull, Bennett and Douglas have comfortably proven that they should be nowhere near this club next season, as have Johnson and Holtby who started on Friday, and Rothwell is very lucky to be given so many chances too. Gallagher is poor but especially so on the wing, Lenihan should be here next season as obviously should Kaminski but both have not long left on their contracts, and obviously I suspect that Armstrong will be off too. One or two of those we had little choice but to play (Harwood Bellis and Douglas) but otherwise, it made no sense either short term (lots of rubbish that wont and hasn been helping us get results) nor long term when most wont be here next season.

I dont necessarily rate them quite as highly as others but the likes of Buckley, Davenport, Dolan, Brereton etc should all be allowed to try and prove that as squad players pushing for a first team place, that they can play their part next season, if not, then they should be loaned out. As it is, I suspect that they will all be here festering and achieving very little.

As it is, there is a manager who should have been potted ages ago continuing with a very blinkered view desperate to probably try and finish one or two places higher for when he goes cup in hand to our disinterested owners to convince them for a few pennies in the summer.

Yet another of Mercer’s stellar choices to add to Coyley and Wee Duggie! 
 

I’d love to think big and get a name manager in but I’m sure many would look at what being here has done for the careers of the previous 7. The one guy I think would jump at it is Gareth Ainsworth - get him in, build on the younger players and see how far he can take us. Now that would be an actual journey.
