I might be wrong but I remember Gallagher playing up front more than on the wing this season, history is being re written that he is solely being played out wide.

do you actually go to the games??,he`s been played up front once,against preston and hey presto he scored twice!!!!!!!!!!does that not tell you something

Still some odd comments: TM on going with Nyambe (who came off with cramp): “We played him because I think Benrahma is one of the best players in the division, he’s a special talent. When you set

Rothwell really putting paid to the myth that he doesn't work hard without the ball, he's been superb tonight.

A nice warm ovation for Raya at the start of the second game which he appreciated. Had a decent game too.

You know times are desperate when you're allocating own goals to your underperforming strikers to make them look better.

Yes I do. He was central v Charlton, Fulham, Reading, Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday, West Brom, Birmingham, Forest, Luton and Preston. (you accidentally typed twice instead of once) I dont think Ive misremembered any of those but my memory may be playing tricks on me.

kind of get the idea if gallagher scored 20 goals a season(unlikely in the extreme i know) you`de still slate him,why not fire your ire at bennett,armstrong or "i don`t know where to stand on the pitch " nyambe,at the end of the day,it`s mowbray and his cracked idea of football thats to blame

You're right to a degree, Bennett is probably the worst option at RB I've ever seen in a Rovers shirt, Walton is one of the worst keepers I've ever seen in a Rovers shirt and Armstrong constantly looks out of his depth up front.

However none of that makes Gallagher a good'un!  Unfortunately.

Your argument is becoming very strawman. As a paying season ticket holder who spends time and money supporting my team, please explain how it is in my best interests for him not to succeed. Id love him to score 20 goals but its not going to happen.

Bennett and Armstrong along with Gallagher are the 3 players I and many others repeatedly criticise Mowbray for blindly selecting, im fully aware he is the one to blame.

The reality is, over a third of the way into the season, he has a third of the goals of Williams. Who, as you know, is a defender. You don't think that might have more to do with roversfan99's opinion than this odd notion you've ascribed that he just inherently dislikes him so much he'd be slating him if he scored 20?

A win tonight and moving in the top half might just release a bit of pressure that's now starting to build.  Brought on by themselves it needs to be said but a little winning run now could alter the season. 

It's no great shakes being in midtable but it would be a sign of progress that they are all finally getting their acts together.  It's going to be one of those seasons, i fear a long hard winter so they need to nip that in the bud starting tonight.

Champagne is on ice!

Glasses in the fridge chilling!

I can't see any other result other than a defeat tonight, which I would imagine will see Tony walk. 

I suspect we might pull off an unexpected result tonight.  Even if we lose, I have no doubt that Mowbray will still be manager on Saturday.

I can see a very difficult evening tonight. I expect it to be clear to everyone how much better Raya is than Walton. As a Rovers fan for many years I never want to see them lose but a heavy loss may finally bring much needed change.

I just can't see it. Brentford on their day will hammer us. We can't cope with fast flowing football against us. Plus they have a quality and inform keeper. 

Defeat will be enough for Christmas to start early in Mowbray household. He'll have himself a nice, well deserved break back up in the North East, clinging on to the hope Woodgate gets the chop at his beloved Boro.

I agree with everything you said. I never want us to lose, but if we are looking at the bigger picture and the future of our club then defeat might turn out to be the best result.

Don't disagree about the goalkeeper.  In all my years watching Rovers I think Walton is one of the poorest 'keepers I've seen - very much in the Matt Dickins class in terms of an accident waiting to happen.

Over many decades of watching Rovers this is the sort of game when we often pull off an unexpected result and then lose something we ought to win.

However, whatever the result I have little doubt that it will be Mowbray who I will see on the touchline at Stoke.  Listening to his interview on Radio Lancashire with regard to the goalkeeping situation it's pretty clear that he has been given the OK to work on bringing in players in January.  I doubt any decision with regard to the manager will be made until the summer at the earliest and I doubt Mowbray would walk if the team are around mid-table and clear of the relegation zone.

Walton

Nyambe  Lenihan  Tosin  Williams

Travis      Holtby

JRC                    Dack              Rothwell

Graham

Is what I'd be going for tonight. Nice balls to the back post for Graham, get Raya under some pressure. No short free-kicks, everything lumped into the box to put Raya under pressure of the high ball. Tosin and Lenihan need to be up for everything. I'd be giving Joe Rankin-Costello a chance too, a top quality player, and would be able to provide that aforementioned cross to the back post which Armstrong and Gallagher cannot.

It will be borderline criminal if our game plan doesn't involve getting balls into the box to stick Raya under as much pressure as possible.

"Right lads, let's stick to keeping it on the deck tonight. Arma you're up front on your own and we have Gallagher on the wing if we want to hit high balls into the corner flag.

Stewy I think you're a bit old for this game so we are going to try Richie out left. He hasn't played all season but he's one of my warriors from League 1.

Ryan, I get the feeling you and Joe aren't very well so that's what I'll tell people when I don't name you in the squad.

Benno you are the driving force and the voice in the dressing room, I expect at least 14 fist pumps before we go out on to the pitch, once I see them you can have the armband.

DG your legs are looking tired so once we are 3 down I'll bring you on.

If you lot hear the fans getting on my back don't worry, they just don't understand that I am from the North East and miss my family." 

Let's play for a draw to start with, they are a very technical team, who possess a lot of pace, but don't worry we have Christian in goal and he's nearly settled in to his new house so we'll start to see the best of him soon."

well get dack closer to gallagher,play him in a free role just off the main striker,finding space and benefitting off the knockdowns,it`s all about having a positive outlook,id`e play with two wingers with two overlapping full backs,providing the wingers track back and cover whenever,we`ve got players to mind the shop while we`re going forward,the way we play at the moment is directionless,the lads don`t know their job and their all played out of position which renders us completely disjointed,you can`t tell me you enjoy watching mowbrays style of football??we can`t defend so what does he does,he has us defensive all the time

Amen. simongarnerisgod for manager.
