After 21 games... 18/19 - 30 points, 6 off the play offs.  19/20 - 31 points, 3 off the play offs.  20/21 - 29 points, 7 off the play offs. 

Just logged on having watched on iFollow. No point scrolling past prior posts, I'll just briefly vent my spleen being apoplectic. It's the same old 'dog shit' we've witnessed for years. Don'

For all the mentions they are getting, Armstrong, Nyambe and Elliott are not the problem here! Gallagher playing wide in the front 3 has never worked, has never looked like working, and I’ll say

Two obvious things from today's game. We have to drop Gallagher and Douglas. 

Gallagher should be pretty straightforward with Dack and Brereton back. However we absolutely have to sign a left back from somewhere. Douglas is an absolute liability.

Totally agree, an absolute must!!

We have a good team. The players at our disposal is not the issue.

Like Steve Gibson saw at Boro, we've reached the limit under Mowbray. We need to let him go and thank him for what he's done for the club, then get the manager us who can get us promoted like happened on Teeside.

It won't happen under the Venkys, though. What we need and what we get have rarely been the same for this past decade.

Shite result, no positives you can take from that game.

We flick from stagnation to regression from game to game and will continue in that vein until the end of the season when we go full on regression.

Dack and Brereton coming back positives.

Someone said earlier that Mowbray hasn’t beaten Pulis in 8-9 games. He can never get the better of the savvy, round the block, managers can he? Not like he even flexes his thinking at half time either. We so desperately need some fresh ideas.

Elliott had a bad game.

We overhit everything.

More players sitting behind the guy with the ball and no one in front (when we're attacking).

No movement.

Poor match  poor result.

And these are the good points.

Win coming here.

Sadly, will disguise, IMO, a lot of the dire stuff Mowbray's team serves up.

Think he's a lucky bugger who just gets a result when he needs it from a self preservation point. 

All correct apart from the fact on this occasion we didn't win.

Bit better after the subs due to the individual talent of those coming on but pretty dreadful overall.

Pretty disgraceful really that as against Rotherham we need to go a goal behind to get any sort of reaction. But I guess the cry from the apologists will be "only 5 points out of the play offs".

And on we limp.

I like TM but it's time for a change. It's the same old story time and time again. We have a good squad this year, good enough for top 6 but we're not getting anything other than mid table. Buck has to stop with the manager. 

Who fires him though? No one at the club will and the owners have no idea what they're doing, so it won't happen.

Intelligence isn't one of Mowbray's traits. He tries to be cerebral but his way is simply to set up the team and hope they get good. He's pretty much stated this in interviews.

Starting every match with a handicap with mowbray in the dugout. 
somebody said we will wait too long to pot , same as bowyer. We already have, he has overstayed his welcome. Season in league 1 was enough for me to say he wasn’t good enough. 

I'd have got rid after he let the mighty Wigan win the title, he just ain't a winner.

Dack looked great though. He will unlock some defences. 

Brereton great to have back too. 

Just too many passengers. Holtby is the lynchpin of Mowbrays "keep the ball ,but do nothing with it" philosophy. No goals or assists this season. Get Downing in, looks far more dangerous in the final third. Gallagher, just stupid being played there, thank god that's probably over for now though with Brereton back. 

Ayala and Lenihan looked decent enough to be fair. 

As for Douglas. Seriously, what has happened there? Have we signed his twin or something. I'm starting to think this is unfair on Bell.

Well he clearly cannot motovate with his team talks. That's ongoing since League 1. 

We keep the ball and tap it around,but do we really have the hunger to suck that ball into the goals? We just seem to accept everything..shit decisions, antics from the opposition, nothing seems to rile our lads up 

Ya, individual talent will probably get us more points going forward, but the mangager has dropped the ball a lot recently with some of his decisions.
