Mowbray’s Future

Recommended Posts

Just now, Stuart said:

Anyone seen Mowbray's post match interview? Rumour that he will consider his future?

He'll know by the end of the week, apparently.

His future shouldve been decided before today (regardless of the outcome). I think we all know what's going to happeneed. 

I'm still convinced hiring him was very calculated, at a time when the heat and descent were rising on the terraces and in the press. 

He's a fine orator and a fine man. Hope he stays.

I've not heard the interview. Was he not just alluding to the possibility of him being fired as a result of failing to keep us up as opposed to walking out?

Thankyou Mr Mowbray for the work you do.

You tried your best. if you have been appointed for a full season we would have been top 10.

Hopefully Mowbray stays for next season and builds a team he wants

Here is his interview

. http://audioboom.com/posts/5894885- …

He looking for some assurances about next season and the budget. He is having meetings all week so we should know in a week time.

 TM will know all about our illustrious history and he will not want to be the first manager to take us to the 4th division, that's why he'll

resign if he doesn't get the backing he needs.

Will he be given it ?

Not a chance IMO.

I think he'd be daft not to. He's performed very well and without assurances that he'll be backed financially, he'll fancy his chances of getting a better job.

Lambert was vilified for doing similar. Although I suspect you are right.

Didn't sound like that. 

He also said on Sky he expects backing.

What's he said?

http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/15270535.Rovers_boss_Tony_Mowbray_plans_Venky__39_s_meeting_to_discuss_his_future_following_relegation/

“I will have some talks in the next week or two with the people who matter at this football club,” Mowbray said.

“Whether the journey for me continues or not. Let’s see. If it does, I can only see if being really strong if we can keep the right players.

“We will see how the summer goes.”

When asked if he would walk away from Ewood Park should he not receive the right assurances from Venky's Mowbray added: “That’s headline I don’t want to see or talk about.

“What’s important is that I sit down and have discussions in the next week or two with them and hopefully they’re positive."

Sounds like he needs to have a word with Paul Lambert on that subject.

Mowbray's record isn't bad :

PL 15    W5  D7  L3   PTS  22

Taken over a season 67 points = top 10

Last 5 games W3 D2

 

And I must say I'd rather listen to his interviews than most of the other bullshiners we've had under this bunch of shysters, wouldn't be at all

surprised though if he resigns as soon as they let him know what he'll have to work with next season.

We drew too many unfortunately. 

I don't think Mowbray's a wonderful manager but he seems a solid, likeable type with integrity and I hope he stays

Yeah the big problem I see is that there is arguably 11 players out the door (5 loanees and 6 contracts up) and if we want to do anything next season we need to start recruiting straight away. But with what we will probably offer players they will wait for a better opportunity and we will be stuck trying to sign players late into August which makes a balls of preseason and we'll be forced to start the season with youth in the side which I don't think is a great option in L1. 

I think TM will have a hard time getting anything out of the board and his ability to recruit and prepare for next season will be a sham. I can see anyone worth anything will be sold to try pay wages and anything brought in will be a loanee or someone willing to come on a low wage. It's going to be very difficult for any manager.

i want TM to stay but can't see him getting the backing. I think he will do a good job with the @#/? hand he is presented with again but I don't think we will have the players to get back up again. I think we will have a very thin squad and at best we will manage a playoff place

He's going to get freebie 2k per week players foisted upon him and loans of players whose parent club sends them for nowt and who don't really want to be here. Probably had that before at Coventry and he'll know exactly where it leads so I wouldn't be surprised to see a Lambert style 6 month clause suddenly pop up.

Dunn will be in charge by August I'd almost stick money on it, TM will get shafted one way or another.

I trust TM. 

Sounds daft when my heads still spinning after being relegated but even his presence at pitch side today made me aware of what we've missed.

Dreading this month from a football perspective. If Mowbray walks then we will be almost certainly led by Dunn next season as cost cutting will dictate.

Might be worth a few quid on Huddersfield, Fleetwood and Blackpool to win their respective play-offs just to take the @#/? even more after this @#/? season.

Daft as it sounds, I think they might sack Mowbray. They know nothing about football and will probably blame him in some way for not keeping us up depsite their 'backing' in January (loans).

They will be quite happy with Dunn as manager - fans' favourite and cheap.

What does Mercerman think ? Just back the opposite you won't go far wrong.

He's not my favourite but he'd be favourite to take us down again.

I don't think Dunn is a fans favourite, certainly not as a managerial prospect but he is a local lad and former player and therefore quite easy to sell to Venkys as being a good appointment

Basically, we'll need a new manager for next season's relegation battle.
