Tony Mowbray Discussion

Is there an Kean situation going on now with Mowbray not attending due to covid or something else? 

Well usually at Ewood under Venkys there's no such thing as multiple coincidences. When odd thing after odd thing begins to happen again one after another something is usually in the air.

Knowing old Tone though he probably just fancied a day off, maybe he'll permanently work from home now like the snake oil salesman CEO.  Wouldn't put anything past this lot.

Is Mark Venus the new Steve Kean? Mark my words.. There's something fishy going on.. We will see in coming days... Has there been any interview with Mowbray last weeks..? 

Mowbray leaving and starting the season with Venus as manager would be real old school Venkys. Wouldn't be surprised

If that happened, and I wouldn't put anything past Venkys, get your mortgage on us being relegated.

potentially interesting news,though tbh id`e have anyone in charge other than mowbray,i think he lost the dressing room halfway through last season and his depressing musings to the press were a sign he`d lost the plot completely,not sure venus is management material,could be a case of decent coach,bad manager,if mowbray does go i hope david lowe goes with him,by accounts iv`e heard he`s about as popular as a mosquito at the dinner table

Im actually of the belief that our current plight is purely down to the manager. The owners backed him and gave him time, he spoke of "journeys", yet here we are with 11 players gone, no clear direction on our style of play and no signings in 

They backed another clown, unfortunately

We're getting relegated, in the best kit we have had in the Venky era - just putting this here.

Feel free to re-quote this if i'm wrong - im happy either way!

Any chance of a list of the players that have gone for an "out of thouch" fan?

Holtby, Downing, Bennett, Mulgrew, Bell, Evans, (Elliott, THB, that Everton kid loans) and probably Armstrong - off the top of my head.

Nobody could complain too much about the 6 first ones leaving in isolation, it is just we now need bodies in. Squad is threadbare.

Plus Trybull and Douglas.

Eleven out I think. No loss at all with most of them but in an ideal world I'd say we'd need three quality permanent additions in and a couple of decent loans.

And that's without losing Armstrong.

I’m I missing some interviews or is Mowbray very quiet at the moment. 

Self isolating due to Covid regulations allegedly but you're right, it doesn't prevent him from giving an interview or two.

He would usually be bemoaning his lack of players and experience. The need for recruitment. Droning on about football philosophy and how the players need to buy into it. No journey stuff. Maybe Covid has taken his voice. Obviously this is a prelude to a long repetitive LT article today

The club operates in silence, it doesn't even communicate with its own supporters

Perhaps everyone is busy dealing with the surge for season tickets before deadline day ?

Off to Swansea I believe 

Swansea in a worst position than us. Not a pot to piss in, their own players being sold and relying on loans/freebies. Any monies being generated are pocketed by the yanks. Potter threatened to walk before he took the first training session because of lack of investment. Cooper used his contacts to bring in some quality, again he threatened to walk last season and was talked out of it. I would assume Terry will talk to both of them before making a decision. All he can get from it would be one seasons experience. What would happen to his reputation if they finish near the bottom or got regulated?

This all comes from friends who are Swansea season ticket holders.

There's an interesting article on BBC as well backing up some of these points. In the vain hope of finding clubs worse than us this season Swansea and Derby seem to be trying to knock the relegation certs off of us. They seem in a bad, bad way. Difference being they have smartly recruited and been the right end of the table despite their struggles.

Lets hope Rooney joins in more Derby training sessions.
