I find it all so predictable listening to him. I seriously think we should ditch 'Arte et Labore' and replace with 'always tomorrow, never today' as our club motto.  I find it especially fru

Anyone want to admit the pressing 4-3-3 line up is leaving out center half’s exposed.  Maybe with Travis back we could play this way but Johnson and Evans don’t provide enough cover for our outside backs to be so advanced.  Add to that our captain certainly isn’t good enough to be left even numbers.

Not fair really. We’ve had some real bad ones over the years and I wouldn’t count Evans among them. Did you ever see Paul McKinnon? 

I’ve been watching rovers 28 years and I would class Evans in that bracket. He is no worse than j lo. This McKinnon lad must of been abysmal

38 games to go and all still to play for. It's been a disappointing start to the season but not a disastrous one. Tonight was a shocker but I'm still hopeful we'll have a decent season. 

Kaminski, Ayala and Nyambe all need to come back into the back 4. Rothwell needs to come back into the midfield and then suddenly we're looking a lot stronger. 

JRC struggled badly tonight and is a lesson that he cant play there against the better teams, Pears didn't convince me although I don't think he was necessarily to blame for any of the goals, and Evan's was a complete passenger. Lenihan struggled too but the defensive shape was a shambles all night so it's hard to single out of the backline - all dreadful. Even Del had a poor game.

I went to bed at half time. I simply couldn't stomach another 45 minutes of it. Checked the score and at 3-2 thought about getting up but didn't. 

If this is supposed to be exciting to watch I'll stick with Allardyce football and be hard to beat thanks.

Yes I agree. Is everyone agreeing it’s Tony’s job to counteract these things when players are injured/missing and use the squad accordingly with all this in mind as well as the opposition where playing to nullify there threat and play to our strengths with the players we have available not starting Evans and playing fecking Gallagher on the wing. Leaving our best RB off the field and everything else everyone has constantly reiterated for the last three feckin years. I feel like I’m banging my head against a wall trying to understand an unreasonable ex wife . Tony is ex wife material. I loved him once but I’m struggling to see why

Two centre halves that played in our defence when we got relegated four seasons ago. Still playing in our defence tonight.

Yep, League 1 defenders but many on here rate Williams and Lenihan....for the last few weeks its been a Del love in round here....when will people learn one swallow doesnt make a summer and a leopard never changes its spots....

. One mon has come from a foreign country to work here for the first time only a couple of weeks before the season started and transformed a struggling side beyond recognition into promotion contenders. The other after nearly 4 years in charge can't break the glass ceiling and goes around in circles on his journey.

But mate,people like chaddy et al don't think we could replace mowbray with anyone better....many clubs manage to find a good un. Waggot wont sack his mate, we are screwed to the middle of rhe table

Thought the new boys, Elliot aside, looked very underwhelming. Pears was out of his depth - another Mowbray favour to Boro (how many more to come?). Douglas looked okay going forward but very suspect at the back - his lack of pace means he tends to get caught out. Tree-bull was okay, but another who just got overrun. Doesn’t look to have a forward pass in him either. All just a bit meh.

Individual errors and misfortune cost us.

But Evans isn't suited to the middle 3, and JRC would be better suited there imo.

 

 

Not keen on that Costello.  Nyambe much better championship player, unfortunately he will be leaving us in May and we will be scrabbling about Mowbrays mates for a replacement....step up Larry Grayson

Yes there have worse players but none of them have stuck around for 7years on top wages. Mckinnon was gone in little more than 7 weeks. Evans is like a bad smell that just won't go away. No doubt Tony has him lined up for another contract extension.

he was bought from non league and it was to big a step up,saxtons last signing i believe

Paul McKinnon was a striker signed from non League (Sutton United?) and I think played one game away at Sunderland at the old Roker Park which I was unfortunate enough to attend and was obviously horrifically out of his depth.

The difference between him and Evans was he was instantly sussed and as someone else said Evans is like a bad smell that never goes away

It's only one game, of course, but I didnt rate Pears. Mostly I feel his positional sense is wayward. He gets drawn to the ball too easily. Absolutely caught in no man's land for the first. Looks like a major area of needed improvement for him.

 

Are you saying you think Pears should be canned?

Yep, look at Reading. I've never heard of the bloke who went in there and he's turned them from relegation fodder into a decent unit almost instantly. No nonsense about long term projects or slow builds etc etc

Yeah but to be fair JRC is not really a specialist full back the same as Gallagher is not a winger. Wonder how our players would look in their natural positions. You are wrong to glibly write off JRC because he had a hard time defensively tonight. This lad is a top talent if used properly. Still created tonight though
