Because he is tells them all they should be shit scared of losing . He doesn't have a winning mentality.

There’s a school of thought that an away point at a top half team is a good thing.

That is only true when analysing and consolation after a game. It should not be the target going in.

My wife's just asked me are you watching Corrie or Rovers? 🙄 Today's our 37th Wedding Anniversary, so as I'm sipping on a glass of Dom Perignon Grand Cru, the answer should have been bloody obvio

I don't even think it's a foul.

Elliott is the best player on the pitch by a distance.

Looking at the stats on BBC you’d thing we were the best team, the problem is they don’t matter one jot. It’s all about sticking the ball in the onion bag. The only stat that counts. That’s the bit that Mowbray doesn’t get.

Why have we been so hasty with our shots tonight, been in good positions and just blasted shots over the bar or weak as piss dribblers at their keeper. Armstrong the main culprit but all over the team. 1 point from 6 is now poor, taking all the joy of our late equaliser away after tonight

Used to be the opposite ,bet the top teams and struggled against the lower half teams. I think it's clear to see we are actually a much better team now

Same old rovers mid table makeweights. And I’ll let folk in on the worst kept secret. Under Mowbray it will be the same in the new year, the same at the end of the season, same next season and for however long the manager wants paying.

I don’t know why any of us, including me, seem slightly surprised, as we’ve seen this script a hundred times it would seem under Mowbray.

We simply won’t get in the top six under the bloke.

Completely agree, just doesn't have the tactical nous.

Crock of shit. plenty of the ball but never felt like we were anywhere close to scoring. 20 shots but all from long range. 

Douglas should be behind Bell. very very average.

Elliot a class above, just needs some intelligence infront of him.

Giving up on the playoffs or promotion at this point, not happening. Mentally this team simply isn't there. Frankly our defending was criminal all night and we could have been two or three down if Bristol City's players knew how to finish. 

I really don't care about lovely passes and fancy flicks and total football. I just want us to win matches and compete with the top teams in this division. It's never going to happen with the current manager. Not that Venky's will ever hire anybody better, as their track record is appalling in that department, but it's all so sad when you look at the team we have.

Counting Bowyer's team at their peak, we've had two squads which I believe were and are capable of getting into the playoffs. Neither are going to, and it's all because our owners go cheap on the manager time after time. If they had truly learned their lesson then that is what would change, not splashing out £7m on youngsters or renewing contracts.

Complete and utter dross. No cutting edge, no pressure on the opposition and yet again bottling it when we get anywhere near a decent position.

This team has promise but will never be a good team with such a dreadfully outdated manager.

Very disappointing, didn't deserve to lose. Will have to get over it, still believe that we are a far better team than last season. That's football for you.

Elliott man of the match

Gallagher worst player on the field

Rothwell first good game in a Rovers shirt.

It turned to shit as soon as Holtby came off.

Did Dolan touch it?

Like I said half time, if we don't score they will do.

Which brings me onto Armstrong... greedy bastard. Probably to blame tonight.

Can't complain with losing. Was a good game to watch.

I’m sickened by this. Stinking night for Arma and Mowbray. 
Arma - nothing more needs to be said but he was awful tonight, doesn’t have a brain, not fit to lace Rhodes’ boots  

Mowbray - Playing Johnson for a full 90? Pulling Rothwell off? 

Can’t have Douglas either, he’s not good enough. I don’t rate Bell but I’m not sure he’s even an upgrade. 

I think we still have the quality to finish in the top 6 but we can kiss goodbye to automatics by not winning these games.

very disapointing to lose a game where we had so much possesion,bristol city are bang average as well which makes me even more annoyed,not a fan of this 4-3-3 either,we`re not liverpool who sweep forward like a tidal wave,by the time we`ve got the ball in the box the other side have ten players behind the ball

Unfair to have lost the game, a draw would have been fair but questions have to be asked.

Why did he take a midfielder off first?

How did Gallagher manage to stay on the pitch so long in the second half?

Why such late subs when we needed fresh legs and ideas?

I thought generally the players played well but anyone could see the defence was tiring and his answer to that was to take Holtby off.

We also play like I do at Fifa. Forward, forward, forward, backwards, forwards, backward, backwards, forwards, all the way back - the goalies hoofed it. There's a fine line between pretty football and pretty frustrating.
