Eh? Didn't you see Mogga shrug his shoulders and say "Doesn't matter if we win or not" the other day?

The man bleeds blue and white!

I get what you're saying and to a large extent I agree. Winning is a good habit to develop and something we should always aspire to. Mowbray saying what he did is just wrong but that's also why I don't like it when people on here say I hope we lose. It just sticks in my craw.

By the way, that doesn't mean I want to keep Mowbray - he needs potting. Dreadfully disappointing season after some early promising signs. The time is right for a younger, more dynamic and motivational manager who can hopefully take us to the next level.

As an aside to recent comments on team performance, I thought Ayala was really good when he came on, composed and assured, passed to his teammates and covered when required, hope he keeps fit for next season.

Long may that last.

He's a good player for sure

Couldn't tell you if Bell has refused Rovers offer or if Rovers have decided against themselves, but as per Thomas Kaminski's posts on social media, Amari'i is off.

Post a link, if you wouldn't mind?

Good news. Evans and Bennett next, please.

If true, it might be best for both parties.

Last week too he was excellent. Absolutely no issue giving Bell another contract, especially at the likely cost. 

Too many half interested at this club - years of being rubbish, then 2 months playing well when his contract wasn’t renewed to put himself in the shop window. Get rid, hopefully Pickering can play, develop a youth player. Crewe fans seem to love him, although worth remembering Bell was L1 Team of the Year when we signed him and he’s not up to it.

He’s been offered a contract but has better offers elsewhere. Rovers won’t match it. We’re on the FFP slide now, this year was our chance financially, we’re now cutting costs to leave a financial gap to go for it again in ~2 years.

We have, just not successfully. FFP is a total nonsense where teams keep costs down for 2 years to allow them to spend in year 3. This season was our year 3, we won’t spend the money we have this season for another 2 seasons.

No club can or will be FFP compliant with no matchday income in 14 months and counting.

We are releasing 15 players and likely to sell our biggest asset for millions.

Why are we worried about FFP?

If this really was our year 3 in which we go for it, I understand with the pandemic that changes things but we spent the least last summer out of the 3 summers following promotion.

I dont think that we have such a plan, it would imply an element of strategy within the club and it is an illogical strategy anyway.

I dont think that Amarii Bell has possibly been too expensive for us to keep either.

I think he has had his best season for us this year. Yes we all know his downfalls, but out of all the out of contract players this summer he is only one I would consider resigning, and even then that’s only as a back up for Pixie.

Yet another reason why that wet wipe manager should get the shove. Totally wasted the last 2 years backing, now we have to go through this shit again.

Absolutely diabolical he remains stood there the aloof goon.

Mowbray asked for experience to compliment the young team. He wanted some who'd seen it and done it. So he got the nod to sign Trybull, Douglas, Ayala and bring Downing back.

They all flopped, he flopped.   There's no denying he had the backing though to 'go for it' that's what this season was suppossed to be about but he didn't go for it. He's telling players in the last couple of games to go out, play with freedom and just go for it. Most of this season and last he's been telling them to sit back and keep the ball in our own half.

Absolute fraud he is.

Big Sam’s 1st relegation. 

What say most of you- did Sam have enough talent to keep the baggies up? 

The one thing that Sam generally does in these fire fighting missions is tighten up at the back. For some reason he couldn't do that this time and I don't think his players are that bad.

I would've backed him to turn West Brom around this season, the fact he hasn't makes me wonder if he has lost his way a little.

Funny how Kipre never got a game.

Some people were saying Kipre would not go to WBA just to warm the bench. This has proven true. Most of the time he didn't make the bench.

I made a point of keeping my eyes on him, he’s a real talker and organiser to everyone around him. I was impressed.
