Mowbray is toast. Hes just not able to keep up with any manager who had a bit about him tactically. 

Today was especially pathetic, Neil made the changes whilst Tony sat like a plank hoping we could somehow hold out. It doesn't work like that. 

I knew we we weren't going to win after going 2-0 up and I also knew we wouldn't score a third. We caught them by surprise, had a 2 goal head start and we all still knew we would lose. The players did too. 

I'm not going to question mowbrays character. I think that is low and unnecessary,  but he needs to be sacked. Now if this drags on like the Kean saga.....

The season isnt over if we just make the right appointment here. 

Bad feeling it's going to drag though.

Always the same with Mowbrays teams.Concede one, concede three - or more. At most clubs he'd have been fired in March but with sidekick Waggott and clueless Venkys he's still as safe as houses.

A manager with no plan B. 
 

Decent first half but did nothing to address the obvious problems 2nd. 
 

it was all so predictable. 
 

He needs potting asap

No plan B ??? What’s plan A ? Yet to see anything that tells me this man has any tactical awareness... an utter dinosaur..and , sadly, he’s our dinosaur

Accidently left ifollow running, now showing TM being interviewed looks like they  are editing (no sound) does not look like a man under pressure

He took a rather long time to come out for interview...normally a lot sooner isn't it?

Totally agree, hardly got off his backside all second half and did nothing when it was clear the flow of the game was turning against us. Just not managing, disgraceful comments in the LT yesterday, no acknowledgement of the magnificent support, his time is up.

Seems to me he has to go!

2-0 up was a serious false dawn again.

This team just cannot defend, the keeper makes a basic error and the team caves in.

Bennett needs a short dose of a kicking up the backside, The team needs a serious head wobbling and something has to give.

That’s it now. Enough is enough. Time to go Tony. Leave now before you taint what you’ve done here even more. I’m fucking fuming. Another weekend ruined.

Mowbray not going over to the fans is the biggest sign of all to me that he’s done.

He just knew he would probably be getting some abuse from the fans.

He won't be going anywhere.

Awful error from Walton for the first and we caved in after that. If this was a one off fair enough but it’s the norm

Walton does play a lot like Steele to be fair.

Given the amount of money at our disposal (whatever else nonsense we all know the Venky’s have done in their tenure) in comparison with other teams we have been serial underachievers.

It’s just all so tragic and we all know it and can see it. Decent forward thinking manager, decent background staff and managerial set up and a sense of grown up professionalism and we could easily be challenging.

With this amount of funding we could quite easily be a well-run club. Er, a bit like Preston. Or like Burnley.

One can only assume that the Venky’s are incompetent or don’t care or disinterested or unaware. And that it is in the interests of many within the club to keep it that way.

1st half super.  

Mowbray had a lesson from Neil on tactics and motivation.

Walton and Bennett are a liability.

Armstrong is a disgrace, his crosses were pathetic.

Sack the twat Mowbray.

did any of the crowd make any Mowbray out noises at the end?

No.  Most were gone by full time.  I am not going down my local tonight, too painful.

2-0 up and we lose 3-2. Not good enough. Defensive horror shows and defensive collapses are all too familiar now and it doesn’t look like TM is capable of addressing that. Sadly I think it may well be time for a change of ideas. 

Good to see Gallagher score though.

I will grudgingly give Neil praise today for his extremely brave move after about twenty minutes by taking off his playmaker and bringing on an extra forward who was instrumental in Nobbers winning the game.

First half it was like we had signed a few new players as we started on the front foot and deservedly took a two goal lead but the talk at half time was how important the next goal would be. Step forward Wally Walton who gifted them a goal. The writing was on the wall from then I'm afraid. Yes we should have had a penalty, yes we were naive but football is about results and they aren't good enough and that is Mowbrays responsibility. 

Mowbray was really subdued today and it was around 43 minutes when he first stood up and then it was to berate the fourth official. Similarly in the second half he was rarely on his feet. There was something really odd about that. With two tough games coming up he was like a man walking the Green Mile.

The wheels are coming off. As it wasn’t just him sat on his arse.

He chose to make no subs until the last few minutes, ok that’s a manager’s prerogative in a tight game, but our subs weren’t even warming up throughout the second half, something I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed before.

Watched the rugby then went out this afternoon to avoid the football, expecting a powder puff performance and it sounds like the boys delivered again.

Glanced at my phone 15 minutes in but still had no faith in us even getting a point out of the game because our manager doesn't have an ounce of tactical nous left (if he ever had any) in his noggin.

Time's up Tony, for the love of god please step aside and let someone else have a go, they can hardly be any worse at this point.
