Tony Mowbray Discussion


Recommended Posts

Just now, DE. said:

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. 

You mean this...

nyambe,lenihan and rothwell are probably waiting for him to **** off,they won`t sign anything with him in charge,would you??it can`t be much fun working for him

You might like to think that, but its very clear from the players themselves that they're playing for the club and playing for the manager. We are all long enough in the tooth to know when the manager has lost the players, its clear as day thats not the case, in fact I'd go as far as to say they've never been more united under Mowbray. 

The contract situation is down to the owners having turning off the tap, its happened under most mangers throughout Venkys time here, but not on this scale. I'm reliably informed Nyambe is on peanuts for a regular Championship player and the club are reluctant to increase that current deal by much, its a disgrace and down to the owners and the owners only. Waggot was going on about wage structures, does anyone believe Nyambe and Lenihan are asking the club to break a wage structure? 

The transfer window was a shambles because we're skint, the loan market was a shambles because we're skint and we're going to lose 1st team regulars because we're skint.

I wouldn't mind Ainsworth getting a shot, but to be perfectly honest I would take anyone getting a shot by this stage.

Can you imagine the boost the club would get from a fresh appointment. Fresh approach, ideas, every player starting on a level footing. 
You have players that might be more keen to sign new contracts based on the new guy coming in if they show even a shred of initiative.
I would hazard a guess you would get a fair few extra fans in through the gate aswell just to see the new start. You have fans literally leaving in their droves because of Mowbray, everything is stale, no ambition, excuses on a weekly basis.

To be honest it again beggars the question how others would not see this but then I happen to take a look on the Facebook groups. Some of them there (not all in fairness, which I suppose is a sign things are turning), good Lord there is no words to describe then with their talk of Mowbray's honesty and "what more can we expect as a club" talk

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.

That Man Utd fan is clearly a moron. I'd stop speaking to him - at least about football.

The main reason I’d be more than happy with Ainsworth isn’t simply that he’s from Blackburn, it’s that he actually gives a shit about the club. It wouldn’t just be a job to him. 

He wouldn’t need to make stupid and untrue claims about walking away if he became a burden, he’d actually just do it. He’s one person who would attempt to tell Venky’s a few home truth instead of being all servile and subservient.

It’s been us v them since day one. It’d be nice to have one of us in a position of influence. However, our overlords would not like this and would probably bin him within a fortnight.

Honestly I don't need the manager to love the club.

I'd be extremely happy with a manager using Blackburn Rovers as a stepping stone to a bigger job (obviously there aren't bigger jobs in world football, but some people won't be told) - that would mean he'd do a professional job.

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."

Can you share these tweets please.

He is out of contract at the end of the season, so I very much doubt that there is more to read into it than that.

I think (may be wrong) that the second tweet reads like Mercer which would remove any likelihood of it being correct.

Mowbray isn’t going on to bigger and better things after Rovers. Not in terms of wage, not in terms of stature of the club, not in terms of being allowed to be part of an operation happy to lose £20 million a season with him at the helm.

I genuinely believe he’s waiting for the payoff which frankly can’t come soon enough. Unfortunately for him and the club the Venkys might just give him a new deal.

Skint....with Billionaire owners.

Cardiff sack Mccarthy.  That will be another club taking a good manager.  If wilder goes there i will be furious.  Piss off venkys 

8th defeat, that's nothing. Try being a Rovers fan. How many was it last year when we slumped to 15th?

There’s quite a few rumours on Twitter that TM will be gone by next international break. Was wondering if anyone on this forum had heard anything?

Find it so depressing when I can’t even get excited about a win due to a complete lack of faith in the manager. Change is needed!

People said same about Chris Houghton and he had a disaster. Not surprised about McCarthy, Cardiff were awful.

I can't find a single mention of him going by the next International break, and believe me I've been looking intently.

Don’t know what you’re seeing on Twitter but I’ve seen nothing of the sort. He’s here till May at least. If he gets a new contract I’ll top myself.
