Confidence is back to hitting rock bottom, I mean we couldn't knock an average team with 10 men out of the cup today, so I'm not expecting us to be turning over a play off chasing Preston.

Probably be a defeat, culminating in a meltdown in the fan base (on here and social media at the very least) before Mowbray pulls his standard rabbit out of the hat and beat Sheff Wed away.

The English language is amazing. By your use of “play off chasing Preston” one would assume they’re light years ahead of us. Yet the truth is they are 3 points ahead. It is a matter of a single win out of a remaining 20
 

This is a winnable game

I don't think they'll have a dodgy 2nd string keeper in against us.

But we don't have much of a choice.

They've conceded a massive 2 goals less than us in the league this season so let's not make out they have an amazing keeper/defence

Of course this is a winnable game. 
Much will depend on the players available and whether the management team can organise them into a unit that is resilient with players doing their jobs.

To be fair to the nobbers they've been flirting around the top for the last 3-4 months, whereas our Tombola team is truly erratic

Nob End are on something of a downward spiral, not dissimilar to our own recent run of 'form', so it is anyone's guess what the outcome from this fixture will be. Suffice it to say there will be complete meltdown if Rovers bottle it against our near neighbours, given the recent history of the fixture.

I'm going for a weirdly entertaining score draw, 1-1, with Rovers scoring first through Johnson.

I don’t think we’re quite at the end of one of Mowbray’s death spiral runs yet which spells good news for the Nobbers - reckon it’s got another couple of games to go before we then win the next few. Rinse and repeat for the next ten after that. The Mowbray way.

Impossible to get excited over the rest of the season to be honest. Our squad is horribly lacing without Dack and with mid table status almost certain and our FA Cup position meekly surrendered, our season feels like it has little riding on it already in early January.

They have occupied a play off position for a good portion of the season and were 2nd at one point? Surely qualifies as play off chasing?

We've never even been in a play off place.

The reason they are up there was their excellent early season form. Recently it’s been worse than us. Their Christmas form was the same as ours, two draws and two losses although their’s were losses at home and draws away. Before that it was two wins and four losses. So 8 points from the last 30. They might still be up there but it’s in no way promotion form.

Fair enough.

I didn't say promotion form though to be fair, I said they were play off chasing. 

It's fairly irrelevant anyway, we are in one of Mowbray's winless streaks, typified by failing to beat 10 man Birmingham. Form won't be an issue for PNE as we all know the way to arrest poor form is to go to Ewood.

It will take a remarkable turnaround to get all 3 points vs PNE. When we were soundly beaten at QPR after losing Lenihan & Cunningham, it took Tony a few games to get the squad squared away. The 5 games after QPR, we took only 4 points out of a possible 15; the next 8 games, we took 18 out of 24, only allowing 5 goals in those 8.

Losing Dacky is a terrible blow; but TM’s history suggests he is capable of righting the ship. But, the games don’t get any easier after PNE, either.

The sad truth? I almost don’t care. Promotion is miles off, mowbray is still in charge, no players I’m particularly fond of without dack, no new faces before the game I imagine, it’s going through the motions

The 'ship" with Mowbray at the helm has been wallowing around barely afloat for the last 3 years , without a new captain and some new crew I don't see it staying afloat much longer.

£28... I don't think so.

Like Ben Brereton.... What a waste of money !

 

Wouldn't have said the price per se was an issue under normal circumstances.

Trouble is the football served up by Mowbray's teams isn't worth £8 let alone £28.

Which manager do you think has served up football worth £28 ?

Morning.

You're up early to stalk me today.

Since Venky's rocked up, not many. Kean's one game against Liverpool, a brief period under Bowyer maybe.

Imo the stuff served up by Mowbray's sides is down there with Lambert's as amongst the worst if not the worst though.

Almost 19,000 against Wigan.

This game should be 22,000.

It will be around 15,000 mainly due to away fans thinking it's their cup final.

Wrong Price and Poor Quality keeping thousands away.

Mate, if you think you are being stalked you should see what I get on here. I was up early to put the bins out - back to bed very shortly.

Only a few games that have been enjoyable in the last 9 years by the sound of things; you can get less than that for murder these days.
