Unpopular Rovers Opinions

Recommended Posts

Saw this on twitter and thought it'd be a good idea for those not on the platform to be involved with.

A place to discuss some opinions you believe to be against the general consensus of our fan base.

One of mine is that Bennett is probably our most limited player in the normal match day 18. Passion only gets you so far,  and I don't think he does anywhere near enough to justify getting as many starts as he does.

If anything I'd say the popular opinion seems to be that Bennett is rubbish these days. I hold the opposite view and think he's decent enough - could definitely be upgraded on but worth having around for his versatility and commitment. 

As for unpopular opinion, I still think Nyambe's a long way from being the finished article. I think he's caught out of position often and that might be why TM is leaving him out of the team at present. 

I wouldn't be rushing to give Rodwell a new contract. Had some good games against some poor teams but still has some way to go to convince me that we should be offering him a long term deal.

I also think we've been more lucky than good this season. I can think of a few games we were lucky to get something from, but not many (any?) where we've lost/drawn but deserved to win. I imagine that's partially because Mowbray always sets us up to play as underdogs.

Palmer is a better player than Rothwell

Appleton and Moore would have come good in the end (May have got relegated before that though)

And the Biggy - don’t shoot me:

The Rao’s were never sinister or ill intentioned just plain daft and sold a dream by a snake oil salesman

Would agree with first and third. 

Appleton however...

Bradley Dack limits our ability to use different formations. 

Spot on. Be a good question for Mowbray at next fan meeting.

The 1962-65 team was better than the 1995 title-winning side.

Bennett runs about a lot and interacts with the fans but in terms of quality he doesn't bring anywhere near enough and shouldn't be in our best 11. Jack of all trades master of none.

Tony Mowbray won't take us any further than mid table/top half in the Championship. He's Bowyer MK2.

You disagree?

Not as such in that I do recognise their financial clout. In order to maintain our current status in football we obviously 'need' them(their money).

However, and this may come under an unpopular opinion, if they did clear off and we did have to "do a Portsmouth" I wouldn't be overly concerned either. In fact, I'd be pretty damn content.

Whats that, languish in League 1?

We need a better goalkeeper and an entirely new back four if we are to stop shipping goals and have any chance of promotion next season
