  1. Aside from the very worrying approach to fitness (all those injuries are looking more and more inevitable by the day) it's his latest praise point that gets me. He's boasting of the fact we haven't lost by more than a single goal in ages. I had to do a double take on this. An achievement isn't winning, or being undefeated, but not loosing by more than a single goal. I mean talk about low standards. Am not sure they can get any lower.

  2. Nothing to play for? Fun fact: we are 7 points above relegation when you consider Rotherham have FOUR games in hand on Big Club and Coventry. There are nine games left and on our current form (5 points from eleven games) we are on track to get a further 4 more points. I’m very worried that the relegation places are rushing up to meet us - fast - and we are total at the mercy of a manager who seems to have lost the plot and players who won’t even take the games by the scruff of the next DESPITE Mowbray. A big problem when you have no leaders in the entire squad. In years past there would be a meeting of senior players to work out how they are going to turn things around. We don’t have enough players whose futures are tied to the club enough to care - and Mowbray sets them up for failure and then tells them (through media comments) it’s the pitch or the officials or the fixture pile up! Feels like we are already relying on other results to go out way.

  4. Come on lads, let's focus. darrenrover isn't at fault,or the problem, or the enemy in this instance. That would be the man who introduced the "Waggott tax", who put prices by up to 25% in the midst of a pandemic and reduced the season ticket base by 75%, the assistant manager who pitched a similar scheme for housing redevelopment whilst at Coventry, and the manager who presumably had us training on an already knackered pitch to keep everyone out of the surveyors' hair. One or two people might have attempted to misdirect the thread a bit to stop the issues being discussed properly I don't know. The rest of us need to concentrate on the issues at hand and not the personalities. There are numerous potential downsides. I'm Still waiting to hear a single reason why this scheme would leave us with better facilities than we have now. Other than "under the same roof". Anyone?

  5. There is a very solid reason why we aren't getting blown away by teams and that is that our tactics consist of keeping the ball all the time and doing absolutely nothing with it. Once a side is ahead against us the game plays out in exactly the same pattern. The opposition being more than happy for us to rotate possession amongst ourselves with zero penetration. That right there is a pattern Mr Mowbray. We rarely score first. There is always a soft underbelly to us and all our play does is nullify the rest of the game.

  6. Am I missing something. tony came in to keep us up and failed. he surrendered the league title to the mighty Wigan on coming back up since then he’s kept us in the championship without every challenging playing the most boring football in the world. Something any manager could do with the backing he’s had. he’s abused or finances with contracts to mates and handing extensions out like toffee why fans pay a tax to want to come down to ewood and now he’s part of a team trying to dismantle the training ground and jacks legacy. All this after we brought him out of the footballing scrap heap. what do we as a club or as fans owe him and why isn’t every single fan wanting this clown removed especially after the famous deaths spirals year on year. Am sick to the back teeth of this idiot along with all his cronies and I’m getting fed up of our own fans giving him the benefit of the doubt. THERE IS NO DOUBT. HES A CLUELESS SELF OBSSESSED BAFFOON just feck off

  7. When Mowbray came in, there was a lot of goodwill simply because he was not Coyle. Even a still avoidable when he arrived relegation didn't really spoil it and bringing us back up gave him credit in the bank. He's been eating into this steadily year on year and were it possible to protest id be there doing it even though I no longer attend matches. He quite simply HAS to go. There is no honesty or pride in remaining. His reputation is so far damaged that he has none left. Just leave, Tony, and let our team move on.

  8. Mowbray, the man who claimed to not trust stats preferring what he ''see with my own eyes'' now clings to stats at every opportunity. Pathetic creature whose remaining supporters are those who just can't man up to being wrong.

  9. That's all he's got left. He lived on the fact we were top scorers for most of the season, then it was possession and now it's that we don't get walloped very often. Funnily enough, he never mentions results.

  11. Just sticking to the facts and not promises from Waggott. The plans were not initially announced by the club. Waggott himself held up the 55 acre Everton set up as utopia. Rovers have comparable facilities over two sites totalling nearly 39 acres, Waggott claims all the facilities can be contained within one site of 19+ acres. Car parking and things like groundsman buildings will require the same ground space on one site as they do spread over two sites, meaning an even smaller proportion of space for football. There’s history at Coventry under the same stewardship. I can see advantages in having the two facilities on split sites, but that’s only a personal point of view

  14. You can't just compare walloping great sites like Everton's which are at least five times the size of the site currently occupied by the STC and think any new facility we built would be comparable on the "all under one roof" basis. Also where is this "professional" opinion that we don't need both sites coming from?. All we have is Waggott who according to his comments in the LT "thinks" we can configure the one site and schedule the use of any facilities to meet Cat 1 requirements. I don't know how many times it needs to be said, but if the new facility fails in terms of either lack of outdoor pitch space, or all the teams having to share facilities, then that's it. No room for manoevure, a white elephant of a facility not fit for purpose and Cat 1 status gone forever.

  16. ‘Tottenham keeper Joe Hart has apologised after his social media team posted a message of "job done" on his Instagram account following Spurs' Europa League exit. Spurs took a 2-0 lead into the second leg of the last 16 tie at Dinamo Zagreb but were beaten 3-0. "Someone thought that we'd won 3-0," said Hart about the post. "As sloppy as it sounds, it's the truth.’ Daftest thing about this story is that footballers actually pay a ‘social media team’ to post the inane shite they put on Twitter etc. The mind boggles, honestly.

  17. And look at who is at the top of that one, and 2nd in the last 6 - the mighty Barnsley. Anyway, all that is immaterial. As long as tomorrow we only lose by the odd goal, 1-0 or 2-1 say, & Farke says that we're fecking brilliant, then all is well. I'm actually reaching the anger point now, it's gone way past frustration. Somebody just get rid of this absolute helmet!

  18. The last time I looked a 1-0 defeat meant no points. Mowbray, in his inimitable way is talking like these losses are some kind of moral victory and some will undoubtedly buy into this because, well, erm Mowbray said it. To be honest I'm getting to the point where it's all becoming boring now. The complete autonomy he and Waggott have is just no good for any organisation. There is no accountability and as we trundle along they are untouchable as our delightful owners seemingly don't care buy hey, they are signing the cheques so all is right.

  21. TM openly admits he gambles with players fitness, despite Rovers having nothing to play for. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/19171626.armstrong-comes-unscathed-rovers-gamble/ Your awesome TM, let's try and put both our most valuable players in the treatment room. 1 win in 11, it is all about saving his own skin. Pasha sack him ASAP, Rovers or Venkys 200m + investment is secondary to this guys own needs and desires.

  23. He's on record as saying he wanted rid of it. He changed his tune a few months later. Not a trustworthy bloke by any stretch...but if you call yourself honest & honourable etc enough times, and get your mate who is CEO to repeat that narrative, fans start to believe it.

  26. Cowards football? Not sure about that. TBH some of the passing and movement is excellent, but as everyone knows Mowbray has changed to that style of play - but doesn’t know, or hasn’t built a squad - that can turn that into winning football. His comments in the press suggest that he’s just hoping things will change. To him there’s not much wrong. 90% of it is good, which it might be, but can he turn this squad, with this current way of playing, into a team that can score much more freely? For me that’s easy - No, he can’t. Could he replace the players we lose over the closed season, continue with this style, add some goal scoring threat on top and develop it into a successful team? Again, no I don’t think he could. I can’t see how he can succeed. I don’t think he has the answers.

  27. Will go down as one of the worst ever managers imho ... will love to wipe out the memory of his years in charge .. just a nothing 2/3 years .. absolute nothingness .. some ways Venkys are to blame for not being ruthless ... but why say things like I won’t be a burden then be one .... one thing I don’t understand is why managers never change there Backroom staff .. they go through 2-3 left backs in there tenor and prob in each position but never there coaches ..

  28. Just watched the second half which, from the sounds of things, was an improvement on the first for Rovers. It was even in the second but, I think, this match confirms to me that Rovers are doing so well at this level, against Premier League outfits, with a lot of reliance on superior organisation and hard work rather than exceptional technical talents in the team. McBride and Whitehall look the most comfortable and intelligent players for Rovers. McBride looks at ease playing No.9 or No.10, generally, holds the ball well and brings in teammates, and Whitehall seems a steady defensive midfielder with good passing ability. Burns played well up front and wide and players like Durrant, Nolan, Annesley (out of position at left back), Barnes and Saadi did a solid job. Rovers lacked width, at times, with Mols struggling and the full backs not getting too far forward. I think Lenni Cirino not playing left back today was a big miss with his speed and wing play. Stergiakis' distribution and handling looked inconsistent but he made at least one good save in the second. Dan Pike is a prospect and physically seems stronger than others at the level but, I feel, he has a lot of improvement to make to his game. His distribution with his feet and throw ins was disappointing, in the second half. His relative lack of pace means that he needs to improve his positioning to compensate. I wonder if CB might be a better role for him. Brighton had a lot of good players and seemed to match Rovers press and tough tackling. The Scottish CM Leonard looked very good, a decent left winger and their RB, No.2, Tanimowo looked a tremendous prospect with good speed and trickery. He rarely seemed to lose the ball. Their centre backs defended well and rarely made an error.

  30. Allardyce: Sacked after a 2-1 away defeat against Bolton Wanderers. Kean: Resigned after a 2-1 home defeat against Middlesbrough*. Berg: Sacked after a 1-0 away defeat against Middlesbrough. Appleton: Sacked after a 1-1 home draw against Burnley. Bowyer: Sacked after a 1-1 home draw against Brentford. Lambert: Resigned after a 3-1 home win against Middlesbrough. Coyle: Mutual after a 2-1 away defeat against Sheffield Wednesday**. * Kean's resignation came a week after this, and a day before the Charlton away game. ** Coyle was still in situ for the Man United Cup game, which I think we lost. Sheffield Wednesday was his last league game. Make of that what you will, although of the sackings, only half of them followed a defeat. My own feeling is that a hammering wouldn't make a blind bit of difference because Mowbray's and Waggott's excuses are still washing with the Venkys.

  32. Managers that talk about "attractive" football and endear themselves to the owners have elongated tenures at Rovers. If they've done both of those, they then get a huge leeway with excuses for failure. That's basically why Kean lasted for so long, and is why Mowbray is lasting for so long right now. But then the hierarchy is all wrong at the club. A CEO should be objective and have the authority to make decisions upon those below them based on the state of affairs on the pitch. Waggott's appointment absolutely stinks given that both he and Mowbray worked together at Coventry. Absolutely no chance in hell will one recommend that the other should go. Assuming our owners aren't going to go away any time soon, the biggest positive decision they could make is by appointing a CEO with objectiveness and authority. At the moment, the manager has far too much power balanced in his favour, just as Kean did. Until then, Suhail is our only hope. God help us.

  35. If I’ve said this before then I apologise. I was working in Norwich early in Mowbrays reign and went to an under 23 game and ended up sat with the parents. They were to a man adamant that Mowbray wanted to get rid of the academy and felt it was a waste of time and money. As this proposal is from our Coventry friends they may be happy to loose academy status.

  40. It's nice that Armstrong has scored 19 goals this season but we're 15th, so whatever we're doing as a team isn't working irrespective of his personal stats. If we had a better manager at the helm I believe AA would score less but be more productive for the team overall, which is what we should be aiming for. He only scored 5 goals in 18/19 when we finished 15th, so I don't think his goal stats are the be all and end all of our hopes.

  42. Saturday is a free hit for him (although it seems like every game is). Win or draw and he will proclaim it a great result and evidence that we aren't far off. Lose by one goal and it will be another hard luck tale. Even if we get hammered he'll come out and say it's the first time this season and they are top of the league and were in the Premiership last season.

  43. The Williams one was total coddswallop imo. I think he was fit and Mr Human was giving him a game to confirm this to his potential suitors. Comes through a game, all systems go so he's pulled from the rest. Tony takes responsibility for rushing him back knowing full well Fook Off Derek is flying to the States. No American club is signing an injured oversees player. These lot run BRFC to suit themselves and their players first and foremost.

  45. I don’t disagree with Chris Whitby - we do need to vaccinate all adults. But we don’t and should not wait until we do that to start with the other richer countries in starting vaccinating in the developing world. Especially if we start to get more vaccine deliveries than we need later in the year. We have ordered around 400m more vaccines than we need.

  46. So if the current regime aren't keen on academies but the owners are or feel compelled to keep it, because of fans and the JW connection. Then if you wanted to gently get them away from it you'd have to come up with a subtle plan to start with. Just saying...

  48. That's the whole point Chaddy, we really don't. If the whole world does not get to provide enough vaccines to jab a significant portion of the population then kit doesn't matter if one country is 100% vaccinated. Eventually, if we leave pockets of the world unvaccinated, then the virus will produce other variants and it's highly likely that one of them will br resistant to our current vaccines. Then it will find it's way back here. I realise that this is a difficult political message but if we had strong capable leaders who could convey this message then it could be done. Doubtful with this bunch of lying shysters though.
