    Championship season 2019-20

    They have a head of football operations. From reading the link I posted yesterday sounds like they want a head coach. Not a manager who looks after all aspects of the football operations.

    Coronavirus

    I’m surprised no one else has picked up on this. Johnson now saying that they are finding out that care homes didn’t follow the rules. He’s starting the moves to shift the blame for thirty thousand excess care Home deaths to the staff in those care homes. That is absolutely despicable and as low as any human being could stoop in my opinion. This from a government who were shown how to control of care home staff and their movements during a pandemic and implemented none of it. A government who took away their supply of PPE in order to put it into hospitals instead - and a government who oredered that patients should go from hospitals into care homes without being tested. Some of these care home workers left their own homes to live in the care homes, risking their own lives in order to keep their families safe. Some of them were using improvised PPE at their place of work, yet Johnson says they were responsible for the spread of the virus. Please don’t come on here trying to back Boris up on this. Please don’t start telling us how care homes are privately owned and aren’t the responsibility of the government. The lives and safety of all of the people are the responsibility of the government. Trying to abdicate that responsibility is truly disgusting.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I don't necessarily disagree with this. In fact I fear this is the likeliest outcome. However that isn't down to TM being particularly good but by virtue of any possible replacement - given we are run by a third rate agency - being absolutely terrible. TM is mediocre at best, pretty poor in my book, but the same said agency gave us Coyle and Lambert both of whom are worse. The other appointments include Bowyer who was a bit more astute in the transfer market but less so tactically, and Appleton and Berg who didn't seem to be great shakes at all. TM is arguably the best of these by a fair way (maybe Bowyer but his record elsewhere is weak so probably not.) So looking at the evidence the likelihood is we will do worse. Much worse. To me the sad facts of Rovers these days are that TM isn't very good and yet under the current set up is as good as we will get. If the owners were to look at recruiting outside the agency with a bit more ambition TM would be out the door straight away imo as there are good realistic candidates out there. But whilst the owners will only ship in a solitary bargain basement store, we ain't going to get any of them.

    Delighted for Ainsworth and Wycombe. I've met him a couple of times also and he was a genuinely nice guy, hope he continues to do well and maybe one day become Rovers manager. Also nice to see Coventry and Oxford or Wycombe joining the Championship next season, nice to see new teams down at Ewood at this level, although we do have the ultimate yo-yo club in Rotherham joining them! Fleetwood would have been a handy away fixture, but its always satisfying to see Joey Barton fail.

    More qualified people than you have come up with a different theory and there are many more of then than came up with the theory you chose to believe. Not sure why you should think I am reliant "on the press feed" or why you should consider I need to "read up" but you're above that. Anyway, I know to learn from history and experience tells me where this discussion is going so I'll bow out there.

    I am more worried about this being the perfect time and excuse for Venky's to put us into administration without losing any face. You can easily spin it and get lots of positive press in India by saying they have put us into administration to invest the £15m a year on Indian healthcare projects during this extremely difficult time.

    Missed chances and individual errors occur in every football match on the planet. They are not ours alone. It is how a team reacts to them that define a team and their manager and coaches. We don't do it very well.

    Championship season 2019-20

    It is the Brentford approach, head coach looks after team, training, day to day etc, DOF looks after the strategic areas. Do Bristol City have a DOF? I also see that Brentford have now brought in specific coaches for the defence, set pieces (both attack and defending) and link up play etc.

    Hughton interested in the Bristol City job.....while we bumble along, they are looking to next season.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I think it's going to be a make the best of what you've got summer i'm fully prepared for that. It won't be great but if we manage to retain most if not all the best players it needn't be a disaster. The transition to ball retention nonsense needs binning off and we need to go to being a team who wants to get as many points as possible as quickly as possible. The deadwood and silly human angle needs binning off as well sorry if that's blunt to those easily offended by that's the reality of it. Save some cash by finally ousting the under achievers and put faith in the youth. No way will this squad on the pitch miss Mulgrew. Smallwood, Samuel and they'll just have to cope about the place not having them there draining thousands per week to be nice lads. Pathetic talk that is from the manager grow a pair of bollocks. The strive for stability will rule again next season so we'll have to lump it. If there's a fire sale we are going down and only a McCarthy of Pulis might stop it.

    If only the clowns that owned us invested just a little bit of time in understanding the game, or even doing some proper research on who could give them some good advice, then perhaps we could have a chance of getting someone like Neil Harris. Given the amount of money they're losing you'd think they'd at least give it a little bit of focus.

    1.5bn for arts and only £3bn for a ‘green recovery’ is a kick in the nuts. Is arts half the problem climate change is? I’d say not. Put a comparative figure to the problem. £3bn is a drop in the ocean compared to the rest of the world. I don’t care about being world leading in arts, we are supposed to be actually leading the world on climate change.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Read Mowbray's comments today and weep. I think we are back in late Bowyer/Paul Lambert territory with a wall of silence from India, no communication and likely no budget. Mowbray isn't completely daft and will know what to expect. His comments are to me of a man who is preparing the fanbase for an unpleasant summer with little to no money. I spent all last summer complaining about using the loan market to fill crucial positions like GK and CB. I was worried back then that we would face this situation yet many told me I was overreacting and there was nothing wrong with using loans if it saved us money. Well here we are. The spine of the team set to depart, a manager who is a failure in the transfer market and owners who are back to not communicating.

    Because ive seen evidence that suggests otherwise, so I'll go with that. There much more qualified people than me who have come up with this theory. You should read up a bit and not be so reliant on the press feed

    But, in medical circles the much bigger view is that its origins lie in "wet markets" in China which sell wild animals for human consumption. So why not go with that?

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Seems to me like he's admitting he's absolutely F***** up. Potentially having no budget to sign a goalkeeper or defender when he spent £12m on two awful players. People need to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    On that basis every new manager is a gamble and we should never change because things might get worse. He doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt, he's failed. We are stuck in the middle of mediocrity going nowhere till we start going downwards. We are bereft of money, dignity and ideas. What we have are poor results, boring football, low crowds, big debts and a fantastic history. We are a few years away from the likes of Bolton, Oldham, and Wigan and I suggest you wake up.

    As I said in the Tony Mowbray thread, goes to show a young ambitious guy whilst has its risks can breathe some life into the club. The Mowbray thread reads as if you have to be over 60 years old to be considered.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I'm not saying there's not work to do, of course there is. And I'm also not saying BB & Gally have been poor only by reference to Dack, of course they have from any viewpoint, especially given their fees. I'm just of the view that continuing with TM is as likely to bring success as is ditching him and gambling on a replacement, and I think I've explained rationally why I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt. I may be proved wrong, or right, or we may never know. Each to their own eh?

    Haven't we been over this Stuart before? Why don't you accept that other posters have a different view of Mowbray and the job he has done then yourself. Are you going to accept it? Do you mean agents? If so, Gallagher's agent is crown football and Brereton's agent is Wasserman Here is a list of Rovers player's agent https://www.transfermarkt.com.hr/blackburn-rovers/berateruebersicht/verein/164
