You surely are'nt going off one performance, folk saying they looked like a premier league side the other night.

The last time they were in the PL they came straight back down without putting up much of a fight, so that doesn't mean much!

I'm old fashioned. Biased towards big guy, short guy up top.  Think Toshack/Keegan, Tore Andre Flo/Zola. We have an Armstrong, we have a Dolan. We have a Gallagher and we have a Brereton. Obviously not in the same quality league but surely TM should be trying out that formation. Am I missing something or is TM a moron?

He's a moron.

Dolans pace seems to have vanished. Looked electric early season.

Think playing so much after playing so little has worn him out a bit.

Pretty good performance in isolation but that’s now 1 win in 12. Terrific time to make a managerial change being the international break but not a chance of that happening. I’m personally going to enjoy a couple of weeks mental break from Rovers and Mowbray tbh.

We could only really call this a good point if it was building towards something. I suppose if you think we're in serious danger of getting relegated it could be considered an unexpected point away from the danger zone. Otherwise it's just another step in the mind-numbing journey of utter mediocrity Mowbray has us on.

Happy that Gallagher got the goal, I've been a critic of his but it can't be helping him playing wide.

He'll dine out on that point for the rest of the season. We could lose every game between now and the end of the season but he'd still use this game as evidence that we aren't far off.

I get people saying this could keep him in a job but I've concluded he is staying until the end of the season regardless. An honourable change seems the way it's going as they seem to like Tony and if he steps down/mutual agreement it keeps his stock higher than a sacking which probably suits both parties with nothing left to play for.

A thoroughly enjoyable match, good performance and probably deserved to win against the run away league leaders.

Why oh why can we not shape like that every week?!

Enjoyable game that. Good to see us finish strongly. We've been setup wrong far too often this season. Not been his biggest fan over the years, but fair play to Lenihan today. He made some brilliant interceptions.

There’s been a lot to complain about recently but that game wasn’t one of them. Good effort, great point.

Build the team around Rothwell? No thanks. If he could play a simple one-two we might well have won that.

Really?

The team worked hard, Tony's brain didn't.

Rotherham win away to Bristol C...

it Will be tight at the bottom..

 

Norwich were not at their best today...good point but still We are going backwards.

Stats show Norwich had 4 clear cut chances to our 0. That says it all.

Good result though in the end. Draw away from home to league leaders. 

I'm predicting our form picks up for the end of the season and TM keeps his job. He's unlikely to go before his contract expires.

Good performance from most ways of looking at it, but actually if you think about decent chances we relied on Kaminski a lot more than Norwich did on Krul.

It's the same adage that we can dominate long phases of the game in terms of possession and half chances, but we will steadily gift 3 or 4 quality chances to the other side per game. And recently on top of that we have really struggled to generate good attacking chances.

it's not a winning formula... We would be better off to play more conservatively and gift fewer opportunities to the opposition. We've got a good set of counter attacking players. We could play that way...
