Absolutely spot on.

I have not been to a home game since Coyle was appoited but I miss Ewood so much.

If Ainsworth was appointed  I would return. We need someone who loves and understands then club

Will Venky's understand my point of view ? No

Will Venky's appoint Ainsworth ? No

Boycott continues

Don’t forget, Mowbray has described the owners, as very humble people.

I was speaking to a Utd fan yesterday complaining about Solskjaer, out of his depth, tactically inept, poor in front of the media, wouldn't have got the job if he hadn't been a player, you get my drift. He then went on to say that he'd like to see Solskjaer sacked and Steve Bruce back as manager, I almost fell of the chair.......

He then went on to say he'd steady the ship, keep them competitive, keep them honest until someone better comes along, a bit like Mowbray at your place. Everyone knows Venkys are the problem, until they leave you'll never do anything, Mowbray is a steady hand, he'll keep you competitive in the Championship, you'll not end up in league 1 with him in charge.

He has a point in my opinion.

Just on Gareth Ainsworth, I want him nowhere near this football club until Venkys leave. Manging this football club under these owners will destroy his local lad reputation in 6 months. Its tough to manage your home town team in good circumstances, but under Venkys he'll be ripped apart.

Someone tweeting Rich Sharpe that they were at some grass roots game in Middlesbrough and Mowbray was there and telling people he didn't expect to be manager by the end of the season.

This is what someone tweeted below:

"Yet he was telling parents at a grassroots game in Middlesbrough, he’s unsure if he’ll be @Rovers manager at the end of the season."

That's because a grass roots club wouldn't offer him a job.

 Pity we have to put up with him for the rest of the season though.

Sadly "unsure' isn't enough.

That rumour and his latest demeanor probably just adds up to him sulking because he hasn't got his contract extended...yet.

The hoped for trek to India in the last Int break didn't materialize.

The problem is always who is next 

I know that topic has been done to death on here and save me the “is that reason to keep him?” bait but truly the thought of going through another appointment is just frightening 

We could have absolutely anybody land through the doors and the only guarantee is they’ll be no bloody good !

If everyone had that attitude we may as well give up now.

for me it comes down to the fact if a manager has`nt got you anywhere in 5/6 seasons then it`s clear it`s never going to happen for him,simple as that,he`s had plenty of financial backing,he was given a huge budget for league one and given plenty of money in the championship,he`s failed,should go at the end of the season and if he gets an extension it`ll be crowds of 5 thousand next year

Issue needs clearing up now.

V's need to either sh1t or get off the pot.

Should either be fired immediately or get a new contract - can't be allowed to drift aimlessly.

Still think he'll be gone sooner than many of us dare hope!

@richsharpe89 @BlackburnEnder 

Further to your tweets re #Mowbray

Believe he'll be gone from #Rovers before end of Nov international break. Source usually good though think we all know how decision making at Ewood changes like the wind.

Everything crossed - we need CHANGE & HOPE

 

Another tweet.

Venkys have an excellent track record of making quality appointments, what could possibly go wrong? 

Its a very real concern for many fans.

Plenty of good managers out there whether in work or out of work

That's is what I thought for a while. Wonder if Rovers are actively speaking to managers right now

No wonder you don't see as many hedgehogs as you used to, 11yrs has really taken its toll on the population.

But there is no suggestion that Mowbray genuinely "doesn't give a shit." He spends numerous days living on his own away from his family, and there is no suggestion that he doesn't put in the hours. Ultimately he is a dour man anyway, add some awkward questions about his underperforming and he is never going to give off energy and charisma.

His main achilles heel has been bizarre tactical decisions that stem from overthinking, it always has been. Strange tactical choices such as 3 at the back, Clarkson almost as a false 9 etc, they have similarities to playing Bell and Williams down the left hand side at home to Oldham, saying how much he respects the Bury right back etc. Going from extreme possession football to being bottom of the same table in the next season, from one extreme to another. He is always trying to get ahead but seldom do his crazy ideas work. That is an issue of competence, not effort, and that is what we need from our manager.

He doesn't give a shit. He spends numerous days living on his own away from his family because he and his family are well rewarded. He comes across as somone who forgets his homework then scrambles about trying to get something together at the last minute, and continuously fails.

After watching that interview it's clear he's just phoning it and hoping for the best now. I'd say he wants shut but doesn't want to give up the wages.

I've got to the stage where I"d sooner have a different rubbish manager than the one who's been here so long. So get rid!

It's the same demeanour he had during our 2 wins in 17 run last season, when I think even Mowbray assumed he was going to be removed. It's crazy that he's still here, really, and he is probably as confused as the rest of us as to why he's being allowed to continue.
