  1. 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 them...we then forged a good number of points ahead of them by Christmas. The comparison with PNE is the most apt in terms of Mowbray’s inadequacies. We have superior players (I wouldn’t swap many of their first teamers for ours), we have spent significantly more money and we are still a bigger name when it comes to attracting players. Regardless of these things, they have had a series of manager

  3. First seaon back in the Championship after one season out. We need to follow the Sheff Utd model, we are 2 years behind Preston... I need 3 or 4 windows to build a squad to get out of this league... We need to do it like Sheff Utd, i need the summer defenders are coming.. We need to transition to possession if we want to get into the top spots. We need to follow the Swansea model and dominate the ball. We are 5 years behind Brentford we need to follow their model, even though iv'e sold them Raya for a few million and signing Gallagher with the proceeds. Him and Ben are

  4. Got to say I'm finding it difficult to support a club where the fans happiness is so unimportant. This week showed just how important fans are to the game but at Rovers we haven't been listened to since 2010. It's difficult to take and continue to support financially and with enthusiasm. Neville's comments about certain owners being imposters is exactly right. “You never hear from the owners of these clubs” he said - that part really resonated with me and I'm sure it does with many others. Venky's should be ashamed at how they've estranged so many fans from this great and histor

  5. For me the Brockhall scandal will forever taint TM's time here. I can't believe he knew nothing about it. Not after they tried to pull the same stunt at Coventry. For me that's worse than anything Coyle did, although Kean still retains the worst manager spot by some distance.

  6. To be honest Rev we are this point in our history because our owners can't hack how to run a football club. They have been here ten years and still haven't a clue how football works or how a football club is run. If the manager remains it's because the owners are happy with him to remain. When they are not they will appoint another who will operate within the boundaries that they set. Since relegation from the Premier League we have had a variety of managers and none have been able to get us anywhere near the play-offs - something that Don Mackay was able to do on next to no bud

  8. This shit fucks me off. LAST SUMMER was the pivotal summer... and he well and truly flopped. No, bye. The "give him the next window" mindset is going to take us back to L1. Dino Tony has had EIGHT windows already and has been stealing a living since we went 2-0 up away to Brentford in 2019.

  10. As usual towards the end of the season (as well as at the half way point) I often start a thread evaluating how well, or badly, we have done in the transfer market. This is my thoughts on this year's incomings. Kaminski - 9 The chap has a huge advantage in following Walton, on whom a traffic cone would have been an upgrade. Even when dialling back the enthusiasm for having a keeper who doesn't drop a clanger per match as per the previous incumbent, he's been pretty good. There's been a few errors and erratic moments of late, which isn't great, but when you factor in his fee (

  11. You miss the point. Mowbray bangs on and on and on about possession - IMO, just trying to buy himself more time. Last night, Real Madrid had close on 70% possession and got a hammering - a 5-0 scoreline would not have flattered Chelsea. Real Madrid were a more expensive version of Rovers, disorganised, couldn't defend, slow, boring and tiresome possession getting them nowhere and little creativity. Tuchel has been at Chelsea for about 20 games, not over 4 years! Yet Chelsea are organised, have a plan and Tuchel gets the very best out of what he has got. Compare to Mowbray

  12. Tony Mowbray on social media boycott and impact on players | Lancashire Telegraph "In most walks of life you’re accountable for what you say and do, but it doesn’t seem that’s applied to social media where you can say or write what you want" As a manager who should have been sacked months ago I wonder if he sees the irony in his comment?

  13. Ignoring results for a moment - which very much seems the way things are done at Rovers - it's still stupid he is here. We need TM to do a rebuild because of TM's previous rebuild job. I mean on every level that is illogical. You wouldn't go to a mechanic to fix your car, which needs fixing because of what the mechanic did before, you wouldn't use the same builder whose last repairs lasted such a short period of time. The fact we need a rebuild after four years of TM speaks volumes of why he shouldn't be given the rebuild job and what an utterly crap job he has done all round.

  15. Up to Xmas/January the argument around Mowbray might have been that whilst we were struggling and drifting along and that he might not have the tools in his locker to get us to the promised land that at least he had done a good job, put us on a solid footing, built up a good squad that he had underachieving, and that we were in a better state on and off the pitch than he found us. Personally I think the last 4-5 months have gradually chipped away at that. We look at results - 1 win in 15 and counting and hurtling towards the bottom 3 so we are now worrying about Rotherham United's fi

  19. Overall just about the most depressing season I can recall in 60+ years as a fan of Rovers. Owners - Board - Manager - certain Coaches all get it from me. The sense of almost helplessness going forward under the above crap is frightening. We have played much worse and have experienced hard times and relegation but never before I have felt so detached from the essence of what the Club always meant to me. Now I just view the shambles as ignorant spiteful owners, dodgy management and journeymen players. Give me Bobby Saxton or Don Mackay with not a pot to piss in any day.

  26. This manager and CEO have done their best to drum any ambition out of the ownership since we returned to this division. They've had money to invest in a few players, had wages backing the club itself can';t really afford. Been allowed to surround themselves with mates, drones, analytical staff etc they claimed they needed to make us a top side. They've had an academy turning out good youth to fill out the squad and had backing for Prem club loanees. All whilst penny pinching on the stadium and pitch and overseeing diminishing crowds before covid. Basically THEY haven't really delive

It's bad enough watching his teams and having terrible results but another 3 months of this? We know what he will do with the defence. Ayala will return to fitness in time for the warm weather and pre season. He will impress and will be lauded as 'like a new signing' and his presence will resolve any defensive issues. He will pin other hopes on the return of Scott Wharton, who hopefully gets

  39. I saw the interview with him the other day (I think it was put on here) and he was the complete opposite of Mowbray i.e. full of positivity, full of passion and energy and sounding like someone the players could relate to. The interviewer referenced the poor start where they got dicked by Rovers and Ainsworth responded that some teams had improved as the season has gone on but some had faded. I took that as a bit of a dig at Mowbray as we've got progressively worse. No idea if GA would be any good but what he's done at Wycombe is incredible. That's essentially a 4th Div Team. If the seas

  40. I think our owners are a problem - how many business folk out there spunk away some £20million a year whilst at the same time, IMO, sit idly by and watch their 'investment' go to rack and ruin. However, the club's most important senior managers (Waggott and Mowbray) are, IMO, two imbeciles who have been taking the p1ss out of the club and its fans for some time now. I could just about stomach indifferent ownership if I knew the operational senior management of Rovers had the best interests of the club at heart; IMO, Waggott and Mowbray fail miserably on this.

  41. REALLY?😟 The root cause of all our problems leads back to Pune and their utter mismanagement of the Club. They have been an unmitigated disaster for this Club from day one and even despite their financial input keeping the Rovers on life support I struggle to give them any credit.

  42. What an utter catastrophe. Not only have results and performances been shocking with our best squad in years, we have many talented players who clearly want out (eg Nymabe and Rothwell) due to the managers misuse of them. He’s spent serious money on players who look miles away from it, and has continued to persist with a tactic of playing tall 6ft plus strikers on the wing, a tactic which has never worked, never made sense and has seen players, in particular Gallagher, unable to properly express themselves. He completely misuses players and fails to develop them. Players such as lenihan,

  46. That is the worst, most defeatist speech that I have ever heard from any manager. He also admits that his possession approach, without huge cash input, cannot secure promotion and that long-ball is probably a better option. A decent Journo as part of that 'interview' could rip him a new one. Arrogant, smug TWAT. FUCK OFF. He is abusing Rovers for his own end, desperate now to sell Armstrong to put that as a 'success' on his CV whilst ignoring his complete and expensive double failures. Beneath contempt.

After the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral was arranged for 3pm Saturday we, quite sensibly IMO, took the option to bring the Derby game forward to the Friday evening.

Then we turn up tonight with wholesale changes throwing in some players who have barely featured recently - and 7 of the starting 11 are out of loan or c
