Tony Mowbray Discussion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

He’d have slung his hook for me for spunking £12 million up the wall with signing two absolute dollopers in Gallagher and Brereton alone. There’s simply no plan. He doesn’t know his best team, his tactics are muddled at best, he consistently plays 3-4 players out of position per match, the football is largely p*sh despite what the pundits will tell you. He has to go - it’s simply not good enough.

Mowbray has not addressed fundamental problems with the team..

1.  CB issues 

2.  LB issue 

3.  Wasted £5m on Gallagher 

4. Gk issue.

5.  Plays players out of position all the time - why??? I don't get it.. 

6.  Always plays his favourites even though they're not good enough.

7.  We ALWAYS BOTTLE it when we get close this is Tony's mindset! 

Utterly frustrated with this man.

Time to roll the dice Venkys 

Ps forgot to add the waste of £7m Ben...

He has to go immediately, we need to start again and build a squad.

Which players have improved under TM.

Mulgrew, Bennett and Samuel in our first team wtf!?

Got to go for me now, sick of how many times we've got within a sniff of the play offs and then gone an abysmal run of form. I've found it really hard following rovers the last two seasons, rarely excited by a starting line up and not excited by a win because it ultimately counts for nothing when we throw away all the hard work down the track.

Enough's enough. 

I don't wanna end up disliking the guy, but much more of this, and that's where it's heading.

Does anyone think he should still be our manager next season?

Every manager has a lifespan at whatever club they're at and Mowbray has reached his. He had a big chance this summer to seriously get us into playoff contention and he completely blew it. We've been left weak in numerous positions across the pitch, either because the players brought in aren't good enough or have never been used in the right way. I fear for what comes next under the idiots in charge, but Tony is done here. Unfortunately I'm not convinced he or anybody above him realises that yet.

If he'd played youngsters to give them a chance I would have understood losing. But all the old men and useless ones in the side?   He has to go.

In fact the whole club needs to be re-arranged from top to bottom. But that won't happen.

I'm telling you all now that with the way things might go in terms of finance we'll be starting next season again with Mulgrew. Williams and Bell in the back line.  Bennett shoehorned in somewhere and Samuel given a new deal.

He hasn't got either the finances or the spine to get rid of a lot of those. Number one priority for him is looking after everybody.

Nyambe cashed in on, so a backline come August of:

Bennet - Mulgrew - Williams - Bell

Gulp.

A small start would be to play in our blue and white shirts whenever possible, let’s try to instil a little pride.

I tend to agree. The madness is the Loons will believe mid-table mediocrity is the norm. Irrespective of their losses TM delivers stability. If I was a rich person/family, why would I not need value for money? Why are they not asking serious questions about what their eye-watering investment actually gets them? I'm no Loon apologist, but there must be a limit to their patience and I fear at some point they will pull the plug. Next year if they allow TM to continue as is. Where will that leave our club. I still don't know why they are here.

Which is why those who have stuck by through this Venkys shit-show are starting to lose interest.

It’s a more ‘pleasant’ version of the Kean situation. A kick in the teeth but with a Werthers  Original to suck on.

Get him gone. I can't keep watching these teams he puts out. You don't need to be involved in football as a profession to see what he's doing wrong.

They have half an interest i think that's the main problem. Most of the time they just won't be arsed what's happening but when they take an interest and ask questions we probably suddenly get a reaction from the manager.  I just don't think they are that bothered that's why it's easy street and when a manager has been here long enough to see how it works they just play it to their own advantage.

The void between here and India remains huge for a host of reasons.  The inbetweener messenger man is either thick as pigswill or on such a good number himself that he doesn't want to risk by rocking their boat.

On Mowbray yes by and large he done a decent job but far from flawless yet if he did leave or get sacked you look at the squad and he's left us in a bit of a pickle. There'd be a hell of a hard job for the next guy to sort out really although he'd have some decent stuff to work with there is no proper defensive base no reliable goal scorer.........and probably no money !

Mowbray needed to get the spine of the team right and go from there. No need to be the best players in the division, just very good and importantly, consistent. Keeper, Centre Half, Central Midfielder and Forward. He has failed miserably. Never addressed the Keeper position, Centre Half sorted to a degree but best lad only a loanee and we don’t have the funds to buy, all midfielders flatter to deceive with none being consistent. Danny Graham been half decent up top but has had shelf life and is now way past his best. Completely spunked £12m on two cart horses to replace DG who, despite his age, is still better than either of them.

Yet Tony would have you believe that we play attractive, attacking football. We've literally just sat through 180 minutes of us lumping it forward to Armstrong or Holtby playing as a false 9. The mind boggles.

The last two games, against, well not teams setting the division alight, have been abysmal. And all agree no fans is levelling up,"playing away" as a leveller. Not for us.
