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

On that goal, I feel like Johnson would have kept backing off until his back was touching the net if the lad had kept going.

Did you not see Johno come out the concourse with a Bovril two minutes later?

I have now seen Donnys goal.

It is much worse that I had expected.

Self pat on the back for non usage of any obscenities

First time I saw it thought he might have done better - the replays showed what an awful mistake it really was

They could lay a new one tonight if they chose to.  On the cheap as usual

I'm glad you're not the groundsman then. Laying a new pitch in the middle of January with another game next Saturday? Really?

For the goal they worked the ball right through our team until it was about six of their players running at our back four, completely bypassed the midfield. When I saw their player shaping to shoot I was relieved, I thought it was a mistake as he was miles out and they had the overload. I thought we had got away with one. Don't really think our centre backs could have done anything else.

Shocking keeping.

We seem to every third round. However I’d put it down to Mowbray just being an awful manager to be honest.

I watched the Coventry iFollow feed against them earlier in the season. They had a novel approach of reading out fan tweets / messages during the game.

Good lord does that fan base hate Mowbray. I can see why.

I’d wager we won’t make any changes at the break. ‘More of the same lads’ will be ToMo’s war cry. 

Changes to come around the hour mark, like last week, week before that, week before that.  Not saying Mowbray is predictable, but?

Swansea did it last week.

At least Bell is reminding everyone that no matter how long he's out of the first eleven, he is absolutely not the answer. Never has been and never will be.

I know I always give him a hard time but I just cannot see why anyone rates Buckley. Too small, too lightweight, not commanding enough, not enough influence. 

And not a full back. Until he's given an extended run in CM it's very hard to judge. Maybe we could Nyambe in CM and see how he gets on. Mowbray is doing Buckley no favours.

It was almost as though he doesn't know how to play centre half.

Any examples?

Tony clearly not bothered about the Cup so the players look as if they can't be bothered either. 

Obviously not bothered about the league either going on that observation

Having watched the way Chorley played and the simple , yet effective way they got the ball forward quickly at every opportunity I have now had to endure 45 minutes of ponderous, thoughtless dross from our so called “professional” players. I am so glad I cannot attend our games as just one live game would be my limit. Come on You Magpies..

I'd play Ryan ahead of Bucko anywhere on the pitch. Different gravy

What has he made happen this game? 

.....I'd suggest actually watching the second half mate.
