  1. This is why comparisons are being made with Kean. He might not be as bad as Kean was, but some of the crap he comes out with is certainly on his level. Kean said something similar about Nelsen, yet Nelsen was fine and was swiftly moved on to Spurs. I suspect Travis may have stood up to him or spoken out about something hence this latest stint of him not featuring. For me, Mowbray has ruined Travis in terms of development. A couple of years ago it looked like we had a player on our hands. He was making driving forward runs, I remember him looking really good at Newcastle in the FA Cup

  2. Was reading an article about Granada's manager (Diego Martinez). He took them from Segunda division, to 7th in Primera league. They play Manure in the UEFA quarter final tonight. The article is on the BBC sport website. This quote is caught my eye. It's what TM doesn't get. This is the type of managerial outlook we need. "I have always believed every team should be like a made-to-measure suit," explains Martinez. "Yes, I have my ideas and I can prepare the team in different ways, but the most important thing is the players you have at your disposal and to work out what we ne

  3. Very well summed up. Numb is how I feel too. I don’t buy the match passes out of excitement, anticipation, or even hope. I do it out of habit and some warped grim sense of loyalty. That, underneath it all, my club is still there. I’m numb to Mowbray’s football; his self-marketed brand of “doing things the ‘right’ way “; his inability to recruit, select, organise, motivate his players; his inability to do anything to change a game once the whistle goes - including substitutions (which seem more about giving players game time than any kind of tactical acumen). I’m numb to the fact that

  4. I was thinking about the numbness that TM has created at the club. I'm no longer excited when we win because I know its meaningless and that we won't build on it and push on. I'm actually left wondering what TM would have to do to get some feeling back in the club. If he stays in the summer and by some miracle we win the first 10 games with solid performances, wouldn't we all just be waiting for another 1 in 15 run of form? I had some hope at the start of this season and that was crushed. I really struggle to see what TM can do to win the fans back now.

  5. Mowbray caused the most recent Travis injury by being played too soon and too much after the long term injury, but here seems somewhat weirdly to blame Travis, for what? picking himself to start games? I sick of this shit. The fecking lunatic has lost the plot.

  6. Yeah, right. Nowadays, in Mowbrays world results shouldn’t matter to the owners or the manager. Would that be because he can’t get results? Hes turned into a wind up merchant of Kean proportions. and while I’m at it, - all this talk from him lately about fans at Ewood expecting too much. Fans at Rovers have been spoilt with the PL days he’s saying quite often now. Well, yes, we were spoilt. Just so you know Tony a lot of those fans have been around Ewood Park for a long, long time. Some of them 70 years +. They’ve seen far more football than you have, they’ve seen a hell of

  7. For as long as I remember, we have had fans, who simply want to turn up for the match, cheers on the lads, win, lose or draw and have no interest in what goes on, behind the scenes. Thats all well and good, when we have people at the club, who are running things properly, but sadly, that’s no longer the case.

  8. I think performances are worse than results. We only don't lose heavily because we spend 80 mins aimlessly passing it about without any penetration whatsoever.

  9. He's pissing himself laughing at us now as he knows his mate won't sack him, Pasha is a pussy, & the local press won't push anything too hard. The only way he'd get any grief would be from us in the ground and he knows that that's not an option we have. FWIW I think he'd cave under a barrage of abuse from the fans on a matchday. I'm so angry, & feel so utterly helpless that it makes me even more angry. (I've noticed Les isn't answering his phone today btw!)

  11. I must be going insane. I keep logging in to see if he's gone yet, in the same way that you sit watching a match on TV when you're desperate for the toilet because you just know, if you leave the room, they'll score. But it's not happening is it. After every defeat you feel it must but it doesn't. Then you think, maybe its a bit late tonight so probably tomorrow. Just go, Mowbray. I want my life back. I want to dare not to check in here every 5 mins. I want to speculate about other things. I want our club out of your clutches.

  12. The more I look at Ainsworth, the more impressed I am by him. Wycombe were in danger of being relegated to the Conference when he took over, he saved them from relegation that first season and has built them up on a very tight budget. Achieving two promotions on such limited resources is no mean feat. He’s had interest from the likes of QPR, Millwall and Sunderland yet said it would take something special to convince him to leave Wycombe. I think Rovers would likely be his dream (realistic) job and that he’d certainly have our best interests at heart. There’s other names sounded on here t

  13. When the team is performing, we get away with it as the manager can just crack on with little interference. However, it is times like now when we are reminded what a hollowed out shell we are. Football is cyclical and the advancement of a football club is dependent on switched on executives and owners spotting staleness and decline, having an ear for fan (and player) unrest and nipping it in the bud. Here, we have powerless execs on the ground, an all powerful manager that is also the spokesman for the club, some shadowy go-between and owners that take little to no interest outside

  15. Oldest form of madness in the world, keep doing the same things and expecting a different result. Mowbray et al have to go, nothing will change if he stays. Player contracts signed or not signed, irrelevant. New players in, irrelevant. Players leaving, irrelevant. Nothing will change just more speak about 'projects' and 'journeys', 'building a team', 'refreshing the infrastructure' etc etc etc, all bollocks. Nothing will change as long as Mowbray stays, guaranteed. Constant lower half of the table with promises of better to come, no thanks. WE NEED A CHANGE AND WE NEED IT

  16. This quote stood out for me too. Obviously written word doesn't offer much insight in to the delivery of a statement, but it feels like another contemptuous, scornful, belittling, snide, barbed comment towards any journalist daring to bring to his attention the glaringly obvious failure of his role. Facetious insinuations that that there are only two polar opposite methods of running a football club (blindly support the current 'now' failure OR rifle through six managers a season) are not only insane, but also downright disrespectful to anyone daring to question his position.

  21. There's still something rotten going on at our club. The football is secondary to whatever that is, imo. No manager survives a run of 1 win in 14 at any other normal club. Mowbray's had poor runs before where we have fallen away dramatically yet nothing has been done about it. Results clearly don't matter to the owners, so what the heck actually does matter to them? It was the same when the spiv and the crook were here. The owners allowed poor results and performances to go on and on until it resulted in relegation. Is it really the case that they keep on being fooled by these people to g

  22. "If you were in their position you’d be doing the same, or may be you wouldn’t. Maybe you’d be a results orientated owner who, ‘lose three on the bounce, sack him and get the next one in’ but then you might have four, five, six managers a season if that was the case." It was 5 on the bounce and now 1 win in 14, Tony... He's fucking deluded as fuck

  24. Comparisons on who is worse between Mowbray and Coyle.... Well I am a results based supporter not a performance based supporter. I don't really care who gives the most annoying performance at the presser Coyle or Mowbray. (A very hard one to call btw). Performance is subjective. I only care about winning football matches. Winning gets points. Points get promotion or play offs, excitement, pride, fans at Ewood, money in pockets of local businesses, corporate sponsorship, growth to the local economy, etc, etc. aka Upward Spiral Mowbray 7 points. 1 win. 4 draws.

  25. Another thing that pisses me off about TM is that his scapegoats are all promising youngsters: Raya, Nayambe and now Travis. Blimey if we have to have a scapegoat there's a fair few more deserving - Ayala, Douglas, Bell, Gally, Bereton, Johnson, Evans to name a few this season. There's quite a few I'd like to see frozen out. But oh no, it's always the good ones.

  30. I disagree. Hes worse than those two. Coyle never bullshited. Yes he was poor but Mowbray is a downright liar and a fraud. Kean knew he was a wrong 'un but never tried to hide it.

  33. As soon as he said he wasn't worried about trying to overhaul Wigan and win League 1, I was getting concerned. What ambitious successful manager says they don't care about winning the league they are in? Also to then say he had to convince Venky's to cool it when we were promoted. Sheffield United and Norwich had both proven you go for it once promoted and if you don't get promoted the first season, you will be set up nicely for promotion in the second season.

  34. They'd built up some passion again after league 1 but failed to capitalize on any of it. Clubs like Rovers need a fire behind them once the blue touch paper is lit, always been the case. They miss judged everything very badly on that score, the ambition which everyone in a town like Blackburn needs to see to believe in was just replaced by a 'job done' attitude. They all settled in the the plod instead of the push on. No ambitious signings just new generous deals for players who'd turned in one good season after relegating us in the first place. Price rises assuming crowds would rock

  36. Lets make it simple. Mowbray picks the team and as a self proclaimed football genius will only pick players who are fit to play. How are we doing? Keeping up? Mowbray has a huge entourage of fitness assistants that he often quotes from when talking of players fitness and or injury. Its Mowbray that makes the final team choice so the selection of any player who turns out not fit for purpose is down to Mowbray. None else. Here Mowbray is in some way I cannot fully comprehend trying to pass the selection to play on to the player himself. He is certifiable.

  37. I’ve come to read Mowbray press releases with a view of who it’s designed to speak to. It not for us it’s for Venkys. Does he speak regularly to them about games. Don’t make me laugh. He is telling them what he’s trying to achieve at that everyone can see how good the performance are. It’s not them telling him they agree. Then he does the good owners stick with managers. Have they said that. No way. He is appealing to them again for more time that’s my opinion don’t judge on results but performance that’s what good owners do. Desperate rather than devious and in limbo no reassurances

  38. Expecting me to believe that the owners watch every one of our games and understand what is happening is almost as ridiculous as expecting me to believe that the training ground scheme is being done for the right reasons Both are lies and BS.

  39. I think Mowbray is taking the p1ss now and, IMO, knows his comments will be inflammatory with some - would he do this if he knew he had a future here? IMO, Mowbray has descended into Kean and Coyle territory. Humble, honest, a man of integrity? Not in my book.

  40. After 18 consecutive seasons as a season ticket holder, I will not be renewing, things have to change and I know I won’t be the only one. It’s all very sad and until he’s gone there’s no light at all. We’d be extremely lucky if we have 5000 in the ground next season.. wouldn’t be surprised if one or two teams end up with more fans in our own ground than us. Embarrassing from top to bottom. He has to go or I for one will not give a penny more.

Here, have a price rise but don’t worry we’ll lie to your face about it being an early bird discount to make you feel good about it. Care about Jack‘s legacy? Hey, so do we! That’s why we are carving up Brockhall for housing as part of our ‘absolutely respecting the legacy of Jack Walker’ initiative. We were just about to announce it, right before the leak. Carried on buying a season ticket every year even when we backed Kean following relegation? Don’t worry we di

  49. Yes because a few wins between now and the end of the season will erase the 1 win in 14, Ayala being signed, Gally playing right back, the selection tombola, the training ground scam, t snide comments about fans, the (almost) never scoring in the first half (and none too often outside of that of late either), the rushing players back from injury, the previous seasons' poor runs whenever we look like we might do something. Definitely tricky to get a good view/assessment of TM at present.
