I was on a bit of Mowbray watch 2nd half , he looked like a man who knew his number was up !!!

The players reaction to the goals was odd , suppressed elation ???

Or bloody hell , we have just saved his job ??

He looked like that in the post match interview after the Huddersfield game. Who is protecting him?

Still delighted to win, impossible not to enjoy a win regardless. But doesnt in any way change my opinion that we urgently need a change of manager, it was a really poor performance, hes built a squad laughably short in certain areas considering he claimed with a straight face that we can hit the top 6. The performance lacked quality, ability, urgency and passion.

Start with the useless drip in net, 4 huge errors leading to goals in only 6 games. Absolutely dreadful. Miles more error prone than the incredibly error prone Raya, and his kicking is shocking too.

Bennett is absolutely terrible on the ball, every cross is overhit, passes often astray and I think his first touch is so bad so that he can slide tackle for the second. Bell possibly not quite as bad as he can be but typically docile and sluggish, no use going either way and often kicks or heads the way hes facing rather than taking a touch. Not sure how much blame you can attach to the central pairing but you could have got a double decker bus through the middle for the first and no reaction to our goalkeepers inadequacies for the second.

Travis gives us some energy and he was involved indirectly in 2 goals but his use of the ball is often horrendous, gave the ball away so often, no matter who we play in there we cannot keep the ball so why try and play that style if we simply cant. Rothwell was probably our best player, he just gives us that urgency and increase in tempo that the others dont seem to want to exit their comfort zone to play at, the antithesis of Armstrong who I will come on to. Also often switched on defensively. Holtby is the other one who tries to speed things up at times but it doesnt seem right him playing central, he often played clever penetrative passes wide (for Bell to usually stop and turn back) but hes wasted playing so deep.

Dack justifies for me Mowbrays claim that he always plays. Hes our talisman, often our only goal threat. Not overly involved but scored 2 poachers goals that again were invaluable. Gallagher on the other hand, admittedly today somewhat hamstrung by another Mowbray masterstroke to play him wide, is a woeful footballer. He lacks intelligence, repeatedly gives the ball away and adds nothing at all. Useless. Armstrong also doesnt seem to understand the offside rule, another footballer lacking any intelligence yet plays every game. Infuriating. The pair would be lucky to make the bench.

Subs wise, Graham a big difference, has to be first name on the team sheet, actually knows what he is doing unlike Mowbrays batch of expensive no hopers. Downing adds a touch of class but Buckley added the square root of nothing.

Bennett is a poor player. If TM is to be believed why do the others listen to him???

I’m really happy today. My scorecast came in at £150/1.

I thought we would surely win at home against a massively struggling team, but was positive we’d make heavy weather of it. If We lost Dack for any length of time I think we are bang in trouble.

If we lost Dack we'd struggle, but at least we might see some strikers playing in the right positions, and GLADWIN could always step in to the No10 role ;)

Slightly harsh on Travis. I’d have given him 6.

But it’s interesting that with 8/10 Rothwell was still hooked instead of 5/10 Armstrong. There was the start of a reaction (a low booing) when Rothwell went off that became worse when Barnselona nearly got a third - no long before we scored.

I have to believe that Mowbray is untouchable and unrepentant so even if we drew he was going nowhere because that last goal could be another nail in our coffin longer term.

It’s getting more and more difficult to enjoy wins when it allows him another 1 point from the next 5.

Feels like the tide has turned for Tony, which is interesting after a win. We must have been atrocious! 

Facebook is certainly not being kind. Even his biggest supporter probably felt we should have been far more clinical against the bottom side.

The stats for today’s game are very damning indeed. Dack’s goal has papered over a massive crack. I think he has paid back Mowbray’s character witness testimony with that goal alone.

Type of performance that gets managers sacked. The win didn't cover up the inadequacies in the team - so many poor insipid performances - it was like half the team didn't turn up. Gallagher out wide - could see why at first - but when they got used to the long diagonal why persist ☹ - but the poor lad central. Special mention for Armstrong who was awful - how can somebody be caught off side so many times ?

Final mention for TM - very grateful for everything he has done for the club - but this team is massively under achieving - and the buck has to stop somewhere.

Owners........

I didn't go today.

Went Bury market instead in the morning to stock the freezer then out boozing in the afternoon.

What did I miss? An abortion of a game by the sounds of the chaps back in the pub after who did brave it.

Then they wonder why attendances are absolutely shite.

Everything has already been said in this thread I think.

I'll enjoy the 3 points, and fair play to the lads on the pitch for keeping there heads up to go in front twice more after twice being pegged back, could have easily shrugged there shoulders after the first equaliser and gone onto lose 2-1, afterall we have seen Mowbrays sides do that many times before.

As for the rest of the game, good grief.

C’mon, Mick.

It’s possible to despise Venkys and hold the manager accountable for his job description. Every other club manages it - excuse the pun.

To be fair to them - they have backed TM

I am staggered beyond belief anyone still has a good word to say. They are arrogant fuckwits when it comes to running a football club. Where is our clubs future under them? The promises? The lies. Bankrolling the club does not excuse bad management. They should leave, and take Tony with them. We are in free fall, have been since the day they rocked up. Apologists because they keep racking up debt and kill the fan base, so we should be grateful......I'm speechless.

He’d have dropped it before you got it though.

Worst keeper since Steele.

Stuart, crossed wires. My point, why have they backed him with so much money for so long. Rhetorical question mate.

Apart from the Dack header where he scored the rebound, and that audacious Rothwell effort that was going wide anyway, I cant think of a save there keeper made?

This game took me back to that period when we first got relegated under k**n where we picked up a few wins despite being utterly atrocious.
