I don't enjoy this. I don't want to dislike Mowbray, I don't want to see him erode the good work and respect he has built up. If the owners and their representatives had any interest or decency they w

I don't think I've ever been so low with regards to Rovers. I feel even worse now than I did under that lip licking bastard Kean and that's saying something! Back then it was a shock and a tad su

That's just not true, if he was a Rovers academy product, he would still have been snapped up by Liverpool at 15 or thereabouts

Which is why we are correct to look at rearranging Brockhole.  I may be wrong but the last "very young lad" to come through Brockhole was Buckley and before that possibly Dunn.  All the others - Travis etc - were cast-offs from big city clubs.  We've lost good kids in recent times, poached by big clubs such as Liverpool, City, Everton, Leicester etc.  What's the point in developing Under 8's when the FA now allows them to travel longer distances for Premier League training?  Money talks.

When was the last time he did?

Why do you think teams can pressure us so high up the pitch at will (see Elliott calamity)? Cos they're not worried about Armstrong beating them over the top. Or Brereton or Elliott for that matter - we have no devastating pace. 

Why do you think teams are happy to drop off and let us pass the ball around in front of them? Cos they're not worried about Armstrong beating anyone in the air. 

His last goal against Barnsley

I think he's gone.  You don't talk like that to night unless you are on your way....or very close.

Either tonight or another defeat away.

The only slight positive in the next run of games is all those teams will attack us apart from possibly Millwall. We only look threatening on the counter and teams like Reading know that. Of course with that comes the issue that we'd need to defend to a decent standard too 😕

 

We only look threatening on the counter?

Eleven tortoises would get up the pitch faster than us.

I genuinely thought it was a bit of light satire.

Mowbray is basically creating the satire for us at this point.

Hes going tonight.  Resignation interview 

Sounded very accepting of the fact he might not be here much longer.

Hate this. He’s a good bloke.

We just need a new manager.

We aren't playing quality balls over the top for him. We are playing tippy tappy in the middle all game. If you don't think Armstrong has devastating pace for this level there really isn't a discussion to be had.

Teams aren't worried about the second top scorer in the league is a cracker though, I'll give you that.

(And yes we know he is no real threat in the air, everyone will agree on that one except TM I'd say)

Even in the darkest times of Kean I don’t remember feeling this devoid of hope. At least there was a resistance movement, now there is nothing but apathy!

Jesus wept.....

What a load of cobblers, you've a short memory Stuart.
