  1. I really dislike the dumbing down. ”do you really expect us to be beating Watford?” Yes! If we had any real ambitions of promotion we certainly should be looking to beat them but there’s always an excuse with a section of the fanbase. 5 losses on the bounce to Preston, QPR, Barnsley, Forest and now Watford and each has been a limp performance. We have 2 schoolboys at the back who we don’t own but saw fit to bring in, both looking well out of their depth. A talented but erratic keeper now taking things into his own hands. The slowest left back in the league.

  2. It's so sad what's happened to Rovers in the past 10 years. The fans, the club, the town, the community didn't deserve this to happen. Jack Walker's legacy has been raped, diminished and destroyed by charlatans, chancers, spivs and crooks. Could the footballing gods for once smile on this proud and historic club for a change?

  3. It would be hugely satisfying if Waggott received the orders that he had to sack his mate tomorrow morning. But not half as satisfying as if Pasha was following up behind with P45's for Waggott and Venus as well.

  4. Congratulations Tony. 5 losses on the bounce. First time thats happened since the worst manager in our clubs history was in charge. 👏

  5. Our manager said that top 6 is what we should be aiming for. He said it, not the fans. We're nowhere near, have some integrity and walk.

  7. First time I’ve ever read every post of a game day thread... all 41 pages. Lots of frustration amongst our fans. I’m frustrated, too. But, I would guess there’s a 10% chance of Mowbray getting sacked before Coventry, & only a 25% chance of the hatchet afterwards (a loss obviously). I don’t have any insider information. I don’t have a friend who works for the club. This is all guess-work on my part, but the worst possible scenario: TM here for the rest of the season. It boils down to being a money decision, not a win/loss thing. Obviously, I hope I’m wrong. I’m just prepa

  8. Seems clear to me that Mowbray was told a while ago it’s playoffs or bust. So he gambled on two young centre backs hoping for two more of Elliott’s standard, and then he gambled on bringing Travis and Dack back as soon as the bandages were off. The gambled have failed, he has bombs going off all around him and he’s now shell shocked: no cards left to play, can’t think straight. A broken man.

  9. This bollux about being on a "slow build" or "on a journey" is unravelling at a rapid rate of knots isn't it? TM averaging less points per game after seven transfer windows than he was during his 15 games with Coyle's squad. After a further £40 m worth of losses and umpteen millions spent on transfers loans and wages we're in exactly the same position as we were after our first season back in the Championship. Massively reliant on certain key players with contracts running down who seemingly won't sign new deals. Massively over-reliant on loanees, who in general are no be

  14. Yes some of the figures banded about are a bit far fetched. I think what they'd draw back from after all the costs etc this might cover a new pitch but that's about it. That won't matter to the filthy vultures in the middle driving it forwards though.

  15. How did QPR beat them the other week? How come they've only scored 8 goals on the road in 15 games this season, yet managed 3 against us in one game? How did Coventry and Millwall get 0-0 draws against them recently? I think without realising it you are simply confirming what everyone else worked out some time ago, namely that Mowbray is fairly shite and needs potting ASAP.

  16. He does know that we’re playing Watford in the championship. He talks like we’re privileged to be on the same pitch has them. We never expected to win the kids did good gave there all but what can you do against the might of the world famous Watford. Premier club not a small club like what we are. Have to limit our expectations be proud in defeat learn from this big club. Did our best with the quality of player we have. Hes playing the good old father figure card. If there is anyone out there in charge help him to help himself and relieve him of this burden.

  17. At least he didn't miss the chance to advertise Armstrong to PL Clubs again. And Elliott isn't even our player. Rothwell was decent. But unlikely he'll hold down his place in the side with Tombola Tony in charge. I thought Brereton's performance was the brightest spot about tonight. No mention of him. Tone will be pissed off he had the temerity to score and he'll be back on the bench at the weekend. It really is looking grim if Mowbray stays isn't it?

  18. Where to start?!?! Firstly I'm fairly confident that the 20 different backlines are significantly self inflicted. If you have three crocks at centre back it's only natural you're going to see some changes. Likewise, if you decide the right back is to be the resident scapegoat and dropped every now and then in favour of others, it's also not going to help you get a measure of consistency. Not a burden on the club. Well aside from the stagnation, the 5 losses on the bounce, bringing in Venus and Waggott and hatching a plan to sell off the training facilities, oh and the lies and driv

  21. So many passengers in tonight's team. Travis and Dack both nonexistent and in Travis's case, a liability. Totally inexperienced central defenders who lack any sort of defensive management. Numerous occasions that Watford strikers left totally unmarked such as for the farcical first goal. Douglas is appallingly slow and Sarr simply breezed past him every time. Kaminski's distribution is kamikaze and any manager with half a brain would be stopping that nonsense.

  22. Can't disagree with the first bit but (tin hat on) since relegation to League 1 can't say they've done anything too much wrong as owners other than hang on to Mowbray two years too long and counting. If you thought nothing would improve until they left, did you expect the decline to continue and for us to drop to League 2 or maybe even beyond when we were relegated? Oh - and let him appoint his mate as his boss. Maybe you're right.

  28. Share the views of some others - looks like a narrow defeat for battling Tony. Think 2-5 would have been about right. Some serious worries besides our manager: Kaminski: becoming increasingly idiosyncratic and perhaps we are now seeing why Ghent let him go Travis: a shadow of his former self. Now looking a League 2 player Dack: not helped by Mowbray shunting him out left but, IMO, increasingly think he's finished as each game goes by Make no mistake, as a club, think we are in a real mess from top to bottom - a bigger mess than I feared.

  30. It's been a while, but anyway! Please don't compare Mowbray to the likes of Steve Kean, it's not big and it's not clever no matter how upset you are with him. Now, Tone has lost his way, with a brilliant squad of top 6 players. He does need to go because he is being quite stubborn and his comments seem to blame the fans. The fans: All seem to know the problem. Bradley Dack is not cover for a left or right back running forward. Stuart Downing should not be taking short corners. You should not punt a ball up in the sky to little Arma Do not play Elli

  36. Why would getting support from Man U fans and Irish fans make a difference when choosing our next manager?! Or a couple of extra games on Sky? Or ore interesting press conferences? These arent determining factors in appointing a manager! We want Mowbray out because he cant take us forward, not purely out of boredom! We dont need a short term shock factor, we need someone who can push us on, maybe a more imaginative appointment of a lesser or unknown (to us) manager from Europe like many of the promotion favourites have gone down the route of, especially with the main experienced options (

  41. I was eight years old when I started going to Ewood in 1966. We had just sold Byrom to Bolton but, at that age, I was unaware of that. My uncle used to take me, as my dad had no real interest in football. A few years later, I started going on my own and gradually got to the age when I followed the lads away. When we played Bolton, especially away, I used to dread Byrom being in their line up. I knew he was a prolific striker but still blissfully unaware of his previous status at Rovers. As you say, a real mistake selling him. We may well have gone straight back up with him in the side. We
