I would like to see Pickering partnered with Dolan on the left flank.

I'd like to see 3 or 4 partnerships allowed to develop within the side. Never really get chance here they are paired according to opposition.  That's before any injuries knocks or niggles put them out.

Then there is the rotation, another cat he let out the bag recently when referring to someone with the line 'it was his turn'.

For me, after the play off dream disappeared post Christmas, the only thing I cared about was finishing above Preston. When we beat them 3-0 at their place we demonstrated how superior we should be to

23 points off the top 6. Get out Mowbray, you fraud.

I'm going rogue here   I want Rotherham to win. I want Derby to go down and Mowbray doesn't deserve any pointless end of season gloss.  I don't even feel guilty  Having said that we wil

Both started well below us though I'm pretty sure. Hughton definitely. We must have been least 20 points ahead of them when he took over 

Bristol City started 2-0, with consecutive 3-1 thumpings, but are 3-4-7 overall since Pearson took over.

Nearly everyone I speak to is of the opinion Nyambe could play at a higher level due to his attributes and if his faults were ironed out. He is a player to me who just hasn't really progressed due to the poor standard of coaching in the last four years. I think a smart coach could improve him immeasurably as the raw materials are there for us all to see.

I don’t see a footballer in him. He has the raw physical attributes of a 100m sprinter but I haven’t see a proper footballer. He’s both defensively and attacking inconsistent. From the sublime to the ridiculous.

I think there’s some decent coaches at Rovers. I just don’t think RN is great. Not a bad’un by any stretch. Just average.

The rotation thing must hinder us. I find it difficult to believe we can gain much consistency if we are just changing the players every game.

I’m good with moving forward with JRC at right back. Sell Nyambe for a couple of million this summer, boy wants to go. Would rather give Pike a game in the last two.

It does and that along with selecting sides due to opposition, who we are already better than has hindered us his entire time imo.  It's how he's always worked though and this season certain other reasons added have took it to extremes. 

He must be the only manager this season who'll rest some of his best players, in games we need them, because he doesn't want them tired in another 2 or 3 games time.

You carry a big squad so you don't have to do that. His mind must be like the inside of a bingo machine.

Exactly. You rest a player when he's tired. Not because he might get tired.

I have always felt that when you play with attacking full backs, your central players must over some cover. Our CBS and DCMs are all slow, do not protect the flanks and cover the full back, when they are caught up field.  Travis showed signs of doing this, prior to his injury but Evans, Johnson etc do not, they stay central, always. Ayala if ever fit wouldn't come wide, he's slower than my gran, but if he did would the DCMs drop into central defence, I know they would not. TM wants flying wingers but also wants them to fly back and defend, it's a lot to ask of one man.

I can't agree on the coaches. How many players have improved under Mowbray and his coaches? Dack, Armstrong? After that I'm struggling. A coaches role is to improve individuals and integrate team plans. I have been told that we do hardly any work on set pieces, offensively and defensively. This is borne out by a lack of goals at one end and a plethora of goals at the other end. My friends son manages a Championship club and he tells me there is a huge emphasis on set plays and he reckons it can be a difference between success and failure.

The evidence doesn't lie here.

JRC is an attacking right sided player.

He's a full back all day, pfft Gally is our best right winger. I also reckon Pickering will make an awesome CB.

Especially in the championship . Ridiculous on mowbrays part. That’s a sackable offence in my book in itself

Again i just think it provided a good excuse for him to rotate more than usual. Also when you've got players supposedly injured, out for a game then back a few days later then out again then back again it's a bit beyond the norm.

That's a cracker of an idea mate, we should sell off Brockhall and build some nice cheap sheds, sorry houses. We could make millions, rigger you should be our CEO! 🏘️💵💵💵👍

Invest in a pitch? Perhaps if Mogga didn't train on it, it would be fine. I think whatever funds we can generate should be spent on redecorating our senior management teams flats, we could call it a charitable donation 😂😂

People are making excuses for Nyambe. Blaming the coaching. If he was good enough to play at a higher level, he would have shown that by now regardless of who was coaching him. A coach shouldn't have to show him how to cross or pass a ball in the final third at this stage if his career

Trouble is quite a few of our players seem to have regressed. Travis, is another who is not what he was when he 1st came in, Brereton another (looked better at forest). I'd like to see a clean sweep of the 1st team management & coaches.

You cannot expect players to develop themselves, it's like giving a kid a pen and paper (nothing more) and saying teach yourself better English.
