Well a full house on the Mowbray bingo. A textbook Mowbray performance with just about every ingredient on display today.  - Bright(ish) start to the game for the first 10-15 minutes but alas no

It was always going to be tough against a side like Doncaster. We did well to stay in it for as long as we did and make a contest of it. Donny have to be one of the favourites for this competitio

Beaten by a better coached and organised team, who played some nice stuff on the counter and thoroughly deserved their win.  The goalkeeper isn't good enough, terrible from Mowbray to spend money

Whats with the pitch? TM has said that we are moving towards a more attacking style of play and we have some decent technical players. Yet this pitch if what we are offering our players? WTF.

Been training on Ewood this week cause Brockhall frozen apparently

Nothing wrong with the back 4 there, they kept their shape.

The fact we've got 3 sitting CMs and their player was running free at the back 4 (with said 3 CMs all in picture jogging back) says everything about Mowbray as a tactical genius and man manager. 

Kept their shape maybe but backtracked all the bloody way

Same old, same old. Lots of possession but doing nothing with it. The defensive shape is terrible as always. Their player allowed to run half the pitch and get a shot without a challenge in sight. Pears is not very good but I think we knew that already.

Yeah and it's flipping massive so not sure why on earth we've been on Ewood.  The pitch has been looking awful for a few weeks now.

Dolan and Trybull both been okay. Not much to say about the rest.

Bell isn’t good enough, I don’t think he’s even much of a L1 defender in all honesty.  Seeing Henley on the bench for Chorley makes you think how far a player could drop. Youth team LB must offer more than what we’ve seen from Bell or Douglas. 

Shocking from Pears. Johnson and Lenhian both stood off too much. 

Over a week into the transfer window and we still need a LB and 2 x CB. It will be the same cobbled defence for the next league game and probably the one after that.

One piece of play in that first half sums Mowbray up we have the ball level with Doncaster 18 yard line. Ball ends up with our keeper we kept possession mind. Oh and pears is far worse than Steele.

Playing behind closed doors has literally gifted Mowbray an additional year+ in charge.

He would have been booed off probably 10 times if we were there. 

Time to walk, and take all your mates, shit coaches and Boro bum boys with you.

You blame defence - but where was our midfield ?
