If I could find a market on Mowbray being next Championship manager to go!

Think he'll be gone by 3.00 pm tomorrow.  Maybe Waggott too - some serious noise.

Please don't, Mercer... You have to give us more if any of us are to hang our hopes on your fortune telling.

Matt Damon, in his least challenging role yet, plays beleaguered soccer manager Tony Mowbray as he sleeps for 90 minutes in a dug out whilst his team get dicked yet again. The Bournemouth Suprema

My dad actually admitted to me today that he should've listened to me 2 years ago when I wanted Mowbray out - first time in almost 46 years!!

Why, what's changed?

Did they expect him to pick up a result against Bournemouth when he's just lost to Wycombe?!

Pressure certainly mounting generally.

Think LT and Radio Lancs have at last read the script - think the knives are going in.

I reckon the very unfancied Stoke (who were all at sea when played them first time) provided the blueprint on how to beat rovers in December this season.

Run a tight shop defensively and rovers will not score. If go ahead then let rovers have the ball as no attempts will be made to get into the oppositions final third. Think in that game we had 70% possession losing 1-0.

Question for you and @Bbrovers2288

I have said on here I want Mowbray out for a while so this is not necessarily aimed at me.

How have you both "demanded change?" Especially considering stadiums have been closed for longer than a year, 2/3 months after your supposed removal point, what have you done or indeed what could we have done to force the manager out?

Baring in mind that there is no evidence based on previous appointments to suggest that fan pressure is critical to the removal of managers.

To me, it just appears unnecessarily provoactive nonsense at this stage.

You can go right back to the promotional season to see I felt mowbray wasn’t the man for this job. Took considerable stick for putting my head on the parapet to say so. Think your maybe taking the context of the word demand to literally, Iv been asking for change for a number of years. As have others- who I would now value their opinion over others who were mowbray glazed and couldn’t see the bigger footballing picture. I have sent emails to venkys, which I know will account for very little but it’s the most I could do. Would just like some people to hold their hands up and admit they got it wrong instead of jumping on the mowbray out train as if they knew all along, infuriating

I reckon he’ll go over the weekend.

He has NOWHERE to hide.

I said something very similar when we lost the 9 from 11 3 years ago. Sad fact is he’s not hiding because he’s bulletproof.

Which weekend?  I'm not sure anyone is looking for him.

😀 I told you I was a centre half.

That'll be Mowbray with his hands over his ears 'IM NOT LISTENING, IM NOT LISTENING, IM NOT SACKED, GO AWAY..I'll ring Mrs D over you'

He'll go nowhere unless he's shoved there's no fans there to frighten him to death. So he can just avoid certain numbers on his phone and have a quiet night.

He's just as brazen as Kean and Coyle from the safety of an empty stadium.

I’d like a market where could bet on Mowbray still being in a job. Put money on it then if he goes great but if he stays we’re all quids in.

Personally, I’ve completely lost interest. I didn’t even watch today. I turned it off at halftime against Wycombe and didn’t come back.

It’s not even the losses that grate with me as much as it’s the manner of the losses. The players look completely lost and out of ideas. Every game you just watch Mowbray and Venus sitting on the sidelines slumped in their chairs picking at their nails or their ears, completely detached from the shambles in front of them. Apathy on the pitch, apathy on the sidelines, apathy in the fan base.

The injuries have certainly taken both a physical and mental toll on the team, but we should still be doing better and we are in desperate need of a fresh start one way or another. Surely he has to go now, if not now then at least at the end of the season.

One bit of good news - were on 46 points not 40!

 Even I would be worried if we were only on 40 points. 🤭

Thankfully 46 points is already enough.

Get me a vaccine passport & get me in that stadium! He'll be under no illusion about what I think.

Jab, test, multiple tests, kidney, whatever it takes, let me at him!!! 🤬🤬

This is from November 2019. How the fuck does this man STILL have a job? He’s obviously not going to walk because “the honourable man” is about as “honourable” as Judas after the last supper (It’s Easter Monday why not). Put him out of his Misery Venkys please god. If Rotherham win a few of there games in hand we are fucked.

How about this one from 11 years ago.

Tbf I think the blueprint was probably established a little earlier, in this run starting in October:

Notts F - 62%, 0 points

Watford - 66%, 0 points

Coventry - 67%, 3 points  (RED)

Reading - 66%, 0 points

Swansea - 59%, 0 points

We had a nice stretch of point-winning shortly after, in which we did continue to have the bulk of possession (a little less so mind), but there was definitely some luck involved in some of those games. Then it has been pretty much the same since, apart from January, which also had a fair bit of fortune.
