  1. I've not read the messages on here yet, I don't want anything to blinder my emotions....but my god, I couldn't fault a single one of those players today. I've been a critic of Evans and Smallwood together in the middle for a long time but I thought they were excellent today, superb even. Hats of to Tony, looked more like a 442 at times with Dack up front and I thought this let him get more involved with Graham in an away game. The usually suspects were solid and immense, the high press pressure was an absolute pleasures to watch, my god have we had some uninterested dross over the last 7 years but today was the cherry on the icing on the cake, it may sound like an over exaggeration (winning 3-2 in a championship match) but jeez how good does it feel to watch players perform like they love and want that shirt. I've a huge smile on the back of those performances. It's what we all want and have craved for years. Players looking to win, tracking back, putting effort in. It gets me on to the main man, Danny Graham. What. A. Performance. Up against some giants at the back. He won everything. He held it all up, he makes Dack look better (if that's possible for our most classy player). Can't praise him enough right now. I left that stadium just wanting to continue clapping him, he was superb. Brilliant Rovers, brilliant Mowbray. We made it nervy as we always do, but were savvy in the last 5/10mins. Enjoy it lads. Stoke looked like us 5 years ago. It's a delight to have the lads and manager we do now. COYB

  10. The last 15mins was mental, but it shouldnt detract from what was a ruthless first 75. Great energy, workrate and controlled agression.

  16. What a thriller! Here is me thinking we a cruising for a monster victory only for 15 minutes of madness. The scoreline does flatter stoke to be honest, albeit they were the better side in the last 15 minutes. However we could had a few more well before the mayhem of the last quarter. Hoping Brereton can get a start soon, would like to see more of him. Reed looks good, and Bennett was an excellent skipper today. Next up Premier League Bournemouth! We got this.

  17. I found this comment on an Ipswich forum quite amusing: An improvement except for the most important part - winning?! Just shows how it really is "anything but Mick" for a lot of the fans. A total failure to see the forest for the trees. Some of them still don't understand WHY they were playing that way.

  18. I have a strong feeling that today's result is huge, especially the bit of luck we got at the end. Letting a 3 goal lead slip is the kind of thing that really knocks a team, especially after what happened against villa. I think we would be feeling very frustrated and the team very low on confidence. Would be hard to get them up for the next game. Big, big result. You need luck somethings and by God do we deserve a bit

  19. I agree that Mulgrew is still an important part of our team, no doubt, but I think we could find a player to replace him and still be fairly comfortable defensively. We seemed to struggle in the transfer window to identify a backup to Graham, and finding a player like Dack is one in a hundred. So much seems to hinge on those two as far as our attacking threat is concerned. Still, I'm not going to worry about it tonight. Three points and it's fair to say we've had a very good start to the season. I haven't agreed with some of Mowbray's dealings in the transfer market this summer, but he's brought our momentum and team spirit from last season into this one and it's serving us well. A million miles away from that hugely depressing start in 16/17 under Coyle.

  30. I'm starting to really question some of Mowbray's signings this summer (albeit mostly ones I was questioning at the time). Not in terms of the player quality - far too early to decide that - but in terms of where we recruited and what types of players. We signed as attacking players: Armstrong, Brereton, Palmer, Rothwell. We signed to play in the defensive mid role: Reed, Rothwell (sometimes), Davenport (admittedly injured). Possibly that Lyons bloke. Yet we play Smallwood and Evans together basically every game (I think the cup games were the only exceptions?). The attacking players are increasingly struggling for game time - not a single one of the signings in that area is in the starting team today. The only player we have on the pitch who we didn't have last year is Reed, out of position. I don't understand why we collected all those defensive mids in particular since we wouldn't let Travis go out on loan either. Hopefully it works out today and hopefully it's just a specific approach for a specific game which will rarely if ever be repeated, but it is starting to make me wonder what Mowbray's vision really is. Not that I will care a jot if success comes.

  31. No wonder we are drawing so many games atm. Does Mowbray know one win is the equivalent of three draws. If he weren't so cautious he was capable saving us from relegation. Whatever our ambitions this attitude will cost us

  35. Great result! This is TM's first ever managerial win v Stoke following 5 defeats and 1 draw, all with WBA. Found a decent link but the fecking rain here put paid to that. Followed as best I could, which reminds me that the BBC website is one of the worst, it keeps back dating itself. Will see the 10 min highlights on iFollow when up plus whatever shows on youtube.

  36. I would fancy us to beat them this season though. I think we have better footballers and I reckon we have improved more over the summer. They have battlers, but so do we. Early days yet with regards the table, we are only 2 points behind them. I reckon we will finish above them.

  37. I did the same thing, except at 3-0 rather than 2-0. Imagine my horror when my phone takes it upon itself to let me know it's 3-2 with ten minutes left. Thanks for that. Great result though, especially after the performance at Derby. Well done Rovers!
