Absolutely outstanding, 3-0 up and Armstrong has been rubbish. Hardly touched the ball, should have scored from point blank range then missed an easy chance to play Brereton in.

Dolan, Rothwell outstanding,  Brereton really good again just needs a couple of breaks in front of goal.

Really good to watch. Keep it up lads.

 

Armstrong's not actually as fast as he's made out to be.  No way the defender should have caught him from where he picked up the ball on half way. I reckon both Rothwell and Dolan are quicker.

Been said earlier in this thread but the difference when the shackles are removed is like night and day. If we keep this mindset and keep our key players fit (and make a couple more shrewd acquis

BB is knackered. What a shift from him today.

Think TM stated last season that Rothwell was the quickest in the squad. Not sure on Dolan but AA does have some pace. He should have played DOlan in earlier though...he wants in on the goals though.

The team of the week is based on just data, right? So whilst that's nice, I don't really care as I watched the game, and whilst I'm not saying he was awful, he wasn't 'let's keep our best right back out of the side' good. His delivery was worse than I've come to expect from him, and wasn't great in the game before that. When you win 5 nil against a poor team it's not as amazing to rack up good stats.

If we win this emphatically it won't matter who is at RB today, but looking forward it worries me he made this call. If we sell Nyambe for a Raya style pittance I'll be furious.

All I'm saying is it's not a ludicrous decision to keep JRC at RB again this week. It would have been a really difficult decision to make and in the end it's not proven to be a disaster.

Personally I don't really rate JRC as a full back, and I think he has struggled a bit today. He offers more than Nyambe in terms of creativity and creating scoring opportunities, but Nyambe is superior in terms of pace and defensive ability.

Brereton has played well was involved in all 3 goals.Pretty pathetic digging a player out when we are 3-0 up and said player is playing well 7 million signing or not 

Wind your neck in, it was a tongue in cheek comment after he had fluffed two decent chances.

This is a very new feeling.

All the little bits of “player development”, “changing our style” and “building a club” are starting to bear fruit.

If anyone can’t see the strides we’ve made under TM - in what is now the toughest times we’ve ever had... then you’re blind.

 

Behind closed doors is exactly what we needed.

Come off it, no-one could have predicted the way we've played the last couple of games.  We were terrible after lockdown and pretty poor as recently as the opening fixture against Doncaster.

The League form this season has come out of absolutely nowhere.

Not complaining though, long may it last.

I thought we were good against Donny tbh

Whether you love the guy, or get frustrated by the guy (I don’t think anyone actually hates him)...You have to give Mowbray credit for the difference in Rovers now to when he took over from Coyle (and whilst lowering our wage bill).

Serioisly though, who does Dack replace?

Good question. Can't see him in the midfield 3.

Nice problem to have the best AM in the division on the bench.

 

Dacky could play centre half and still do a job in this team...

But if it ain’t broke - don’t fix it.

 

Holtby - Johnson - Rothwell has been key, never mind the make up of the front 3.

Let's wait to see if we start getting a few clean sheets.  Then I'll doff my cap.  We are certainly much better to watch than post lockdown.
