In Indian style, the owners probably tell him what they think he wishes to hear and then go away and forget about it.

Every person I know who's been to India comments on that aspect of their culture.

Wow.  Is this kind of crap acceptable?

thanks for the reply. 

Have you seen Bernard Tekpetey play? right winger from SC Paderborn. scored 9 goals and 4 assist

Have you seen Lukas Hinterseer play? Austrian Striker who plays for VFL Bochum. scored 12 goals this season. out of contract in summer

Both players from Bundesliga 2. I just had a look at stats just now. 

Seen highlights of Tekpetey, good player from what I've seen, the issue with him is that there will be decent Bundesliga clubs looking to sign him already. Hinterseer is one we might be able to pull off, he didn't really do it at Ingolstadt when they were in the Bundesliga, he is defo worth a punt but I suspect he's running his contract down for a reason...

What a signing Onel Hernández has been for Norwich from the Bundesliga 2. Everytime I’ve seen him play he looks a real player, doubt he’d have cost too much either.

£1.7m. Looks a very good player. Shame we don't have any scouts outside of BB postcode.

I should add the rationale behind this. Indians don't like to offend. They go along with what you say because, to their thinking, it's the polite thing to do.

Welcome to 2019. “They’ll” be calling you Cisgender next. (As an insult!)

I had to look that up on Google. I'm pretty sure I'm one of them, aged 66 I find out I'm something I never knew I was.

Can't help thinking that a lot of uk based folk need to travel more and I mean outside of the UK and Europe. Get some exposure to real bias, bigotry and racism. Asia is a good place for a tame start.

Nothing in any of your posts is offensive. Indeed I thought the crap that @steelcityblue  refers to was a comment on Mowbray's pressers post Switzerland.

You weren’t until very recently. It’s a new term devised by psychologists and turned into an insult by misandrists.

Been married to a few of those in my time.

Can't be a better signing than Pukki on a free though? Unreal business.

I would say that’s a better effort though it’s still national stereotyping.   I thought your first post was crap because you made a pejorative comment about how you think Indian people interact with others (which read to me as dishonestly). A generalisation that you applied to a whole nation/culture. ...and a view that seemed to be based on some people you don’t like (Venkys) and the opinions of family/friends.

We all drink tea, dont brush our teeth and speak with a posh accent apparantly. If stereotyping is the new rascism, this world is more fcked than I thought it was.

Which is exactly what Mowbray was on about getting at Rovers months ago, maybe as long as a year.

Since then he has said the system was financed and had player vid on call plus complete up to the minute stats on every player being looked at.

I thought it was operative hence the Lithuanian lad and the lad from Gibraltar.

I recall Mowbray waxing lyrical on how under the IT based scouting system  they could look around the globe, sift through players and refer only prime to the recruitment section.

Now it sounds like Rovers have just discovered the New World called Europe.

Or he's trying to create a nice vacancy for a pal or pal of a pal 😎

I suppose they need someone watching that screen and knowing what he's looking for then able to drop everything and jet off to see them in the flesh, not a bad number. Think i'll apply !

In other news I see it's snowing again on here this morning 🙄

Oh behave!

We’ve had Venky’s apparent traditional Indian approach to business used as an excuse for their aloof and arrogant practices since the day they took over.

The caste system is still alive and kicking in India, and no prizes for guessing where on the social strata people who slap raja plates on their rolls Royce’s see themselves.

Load of utter drivel. I described a well-known aspect of India's social culture.  No perjorative  factor in it at all. Its the same as saying that the Chinese are superstitious because they attach importance to certain numbers or series of numbers. They think they are lucky.

Its the same as saying people in the north are friendlier than those in the south, particularly London. I could go on and on but I won't bother. No-one in my whole long life has ever accused me of racism and I'm fucked if I will put up with it from a dickhead like you.

There was nothing wrong with your original post. Your comments were clear and in context. I can understand why you are riled by simpletons who go “there” almost by default.

Ok Guys. I’m clearly out of step with the prevailing attitudes and mores on here. I don’t apologise for my stance. I’ve read almost every post on here for years as I love anything to do with the Rovers but it’s time to take a break. The constant Mowbray bashing is doing my head in anyway.

If you think anyone questioning Venkys is somehow racist then yes, I’d say you are out of step.

Not this again! 

Making observations about the decisions the manager makes on the internet, whatever next?

I know it's a game of 2 halves. But so far this is going down as the worst game in footballing history. Even worse than Bournemouth at home.

From what we've seen since the transfer window shut the words of Boro/Cov/WBA fans in regards to Mowbray after a couple of seasons completely giving in to his silly mix and try and match selections and formations until they implode is well in motion.

A decent lower league manager who has taken Rovers as far as he can. If the owners have any aspirations of getting Rovers promoted (why else are they still here!?) a change is needed.
