The best we can hope for is 0-0

glad I didn’t bother going

edit. And as I’m  not there and have no access to the red button tonight a PM would be appreciated

If you get any response would appreciate it as no access to red button for me either

Disappointing news with Holtby. Rothwells creativity would have been preferred to Gallagher who tries but has yet to show any end product. Hard night ahead

Maybe Holtby has been left out to take the attention off the fact that Bennett is being played at left back again. :rolleyes:

Why not ? What motive could the club have for dissembling ?

I wish I could answer you. I just don’t believe he is and I have no idea why he wouldn’t be in the 11 never mind 18. Tony works in mysterious ways

Mowbray has never won a game at St Andrews against 4 other managers; Bruce, Hughton, Clarke and Monk according to BBC stats.

What is going on with the injuries? It rarely seems to be impact injuries just lots of strains etc, will be interesting to see how this one happened after a 2 week break.

Maybe we would have been better served training rather than getting off to India, Venice and Dubai!

Don't buy the Holtby injury.

Just read this article published earlier today in LT; no mention of an injury and, IMO, Mowbray talking as though Holtby is a 'kid' learning the game and not a player capped by Germany:

Think it's unbelievable nonsense and why we need a managerial change.

Gallagher is terrible on the flanks, why does he keep playing him there? 

Hopefully goes upfront and Arma goes wide.

I think that Mowbray makes plenty of mistakes, notably selecting Sam Gallagher over Joe Rothwell, but I find these conspiracies about Holtby not being injured a little hard to fathom.

It's an absolute joke. I'm done with his bullshit now. TM could sign Messi and pick faults in his play. He'd start Gallagher over him.

I couldn't care less if we win comfortably tonight, I'll still be wanting Ronald McDonald and his happy meal boys out of our club.

This squad has so much potential to tear teams apart yet I doubt we'll score more than one tonight or at all this weekend.

Get out Mowbray!!!

“The things I think he has to improve and get better at are his positional sense of how we play and where he needs to be on the pitch. While it can be exciting when he’s running off everywhere and trying to create chances, he also has a responsibility out of possession.

“He had to learn that, we took three or four weeks to drill that in to him and I thought he was good at the weekend, did his defensive duties well and scored a goal, made a goal, should have scored a second.

Blimey, this is the man that plays Bennett every game... Out of position. And doesn't see any issues with that.

Please resign Tony, you've lost the plot.

Might have misheard (video stuttered on ifollow ) but think they said Holtby is a hamstring injury

Weirdly I'd be more confident if we were playing one of the better teams in the division. We're capable of pulling out surprise results against those kinds of team, because our sit back, contain and try to nick a goal tactic is perfect for that kind of opponent. It's opponents similar to ourselves that we struggle with the most.

Sky can shove their red button up their Jaxie.  Want me to upgrade an extra £18 per month. Bollox to them. I'll listen to Radio Lancs.

I do. He limping around after the game on Saturday, and wasn’t moving well when he came off.

Not sure. This is reminiscent of that Hull fixture. They were tripe as well.
