The TEN COMMANDMENTS of Tony Mowbray 1. Thou shall play Elliot Bennett 2. Thou shall not play Joe Rothwell  3. Thou shall only sign players from the North East 4. Strikers are the

When a new manager arrives, as Mowbray did,  you have to work with what you've got player wise. I can understand that. You then evaluate who plays best in which position and sort out a formation that

I feel the same. I’ve got to a point where I no longer get excited for matches. I’ve tried not to let Rovers losing affect my weekend, since it feels like it’s a forgone conclusion at the moment. I la

what's one of these? 

someone you want and not someone you didn't want

A bloody manager who knows how to pick a team to win matches, doesn't piss about playing Bennett every week in whatever position on the pitch he wants to play, is ruthless and drops players who don't perform (Armstrong), and plays young and creative players (take your pick). The owners over the last nine years have ground the club, the town and the fan base into the ground. Get real! (Two different uses of the word ground)

Subject: Missing a Shot (no not Mowbray's bullet).

So, I'm keeping a tally of our shots throughout the season (which is normally easier than you'd imagine).

Today's game says we had FOUR. The goal - obviously and these 2 posted here (yeah, appalling)....but what about the 4th. Can anyone remember it? Did it really happen?

Williams a shot? FFS its miles off and badly hit. Stats take the piss.

I agree on Armstrong.

Another narrow defeat which by the sounds of it could have been way worse in the second half but which will no doubt be painted as another hard luck story due to the controversial penalty etc.

Hate to say it but I'm almost at the stage where I think we need a couple of 5-0 gubbings to concentrate the owners' minds. Horrible to have to think that way but it's as plain as day we're only going one way under Mowbray.

Can anyone explain why you would possibly bring Evan's on for Holtby at 2-1 down? It's almost like Mowbray is deliberately thumbing his nose up at the supporters.

i can`t believe nobody in the dressing room has`nt  gone beserk and told him " f**k off tony you`re tactics are s**t"

Perhaps the likes of Johnson and Rothwell have. The former has suddenly fallen way down the pecking order (apparently behind Evans and Buckley nowadays) and the other is lucky to get twenty minutes. Then there's Mulgrew who was very suddenly tossed down the road to Wigan in the final few hours of the transfer window.

Score flatters us and el surprise he's rambling on about officials again as his get out of jail card.

I don't think it was a penalty but Tosin should know better than to put a put anywhere near that prick in the box.

Even stoke slammed Baaaaarnsley today, if we don't hammer a few in against them Tony must surely be potted

Didnt bother going, watching or listening to the game, went to work instead. Lost much interest in it, also pisses me off a lot less. Coming home and just looking at the score and thinking "yep all very predictable" and then turning over is far easier than watching it and being constantly pissed off for 105 minutes and then spoiling the rest of the weekend. Wont even bother with highlights. Will keep it that way until hes left.

Some Leeds fan tweeted their keeper had more successful passes than any BRFC player.

A whole new approach needed from summer if not right now.  So much for this passing side, man and his coaches haven't got one clue what suits their players.

We needed a couple of defenders and another Striker in the summer.

We got nothing resembling an upgrade in that area.

With 2 new defenders and a good striker we wouldn't be far away, although we might need another keeper now (Walton was good today to be fair)

Even if you inserted a capable pair of defenders and striker in terms of top 6 standard I still dont think we would have a top 6 standard team. Walton had very little to do in fairness today, Leeds were pretty wasteful I would suggest considering their dominance, but in general he is not up to it IMO. Defensively, you say 2, but none of our defenders are top 6 standard so youd still be short. Midfield, weve made some fairly high profile signings but still treat the ball like a hot potato, our pass rate today was embarassing. Definitely not a top 6 standard midfield.

Basically the summary is I would say Dack perhaps is our only potential player who you could say is top 6 quality.

How do you know that our owners aren't interested? look at the money they spend each season on the club. 

Travis shouldn't be the main stay of our centre midfield at his age. He needs an experience player next to him which I thought Johnson would be. 

Dack doesn't effect these types of games away from home cos he has no room to work in and far too deeper. 

Mowbray should have gone for a proper centre back like Jansson or an other but he didn't. That is costing here big time just like an experience right back 

I wonder how he would play under Michael O'Neill his international manager. Ive always been impressed with his performances for them


Depends on who the manager was who replace Mowbray if he ever sack? 

 

 

You need to remember he is young keeper. Brighton think he will be premier league class keeper. 

I dont think theres any chance of Mowbray being sacked sadly for the reasons I gave. They are allowing Mowbrays mate to keep things "ticking over" and he wont sack his mate. Jobs for the boys.

Mowbrays interview certainly was predictable. Spent the whole time blaming the ref and no questions or answers about our inability to play 2 passes or to offer any goal threat. Or why hes spent so much money on shit. Given an easy ride and also trying to cover up his own inadequacies.

But also Leeds' penalty - how many of these non-penalties are we going to get punished with before it stops being a 'coincidence' and 'bad luck?' They seem every game now.

Like all of the others, I thought it was a stupid error and a definite penalty.

As it has always been under the Loons, as long as you kowtow to the Indian model you're a rich man. It's appalling. So many have lined their pockets whilst the interests of our club have been ignored.
