Is it our plan to outscore the oppo this season? Will be fun/painful to watch at the same time. 

 

This would be a revolutionary approach to winning matches. Are you Guardiola or Klopp?

I still think I would prefer a left back who could defend. All the quotes from qpr fans seem to suggest he’s not good at that part of the game

I think there'll be a lot of goals in Rovers games this season. I worry most of them will be in our net. 

Since we came out of lockdown the goals conceded sequence: 3,2,2,3,2,1,1,3,3,3.

3 goals conceded in 5 out of 10 games. Shockingly poor.

Who did we keep the clean sheet against? 

I genuinely don't remember any since that dour game against Stoke back in February.

We didn't. I read the Millwall defeat wrong! 1-0 to them. We're even shitter than I thought!

Yes, and this week Mowbray was talking about TAA and Robertson at Liverpool as role models to the likes of Nyambe...

Im now convinced he’s been on full charm offensive trying to get the likes of Ayala and now Manning on board with his public comments these last couple of weeks. 

Must have had a charm coach cos usually they go somewhere else after Tony's talked to them.

I've said a few times, whilst Ayala and a Manning or Douglas would make us a better side on paper, we'll always concede goals under Mowbray.

I just don't think he has it in him to set up a side to go away from home and grind out a 1-0 win on a grim Tuesday night somewhere.

With a good manager I think we'd get playoffs this season.

Getting into the play offs is pointless unless you WIN THEM!

Yep, definitely more to it than just personnel. We could have AC Milan's defence of the 90's and we'd still concede a hatful.

A bet that delivers with something like an 80% certainty on Rovers' games - more than 1.5 goals!

Fill your boots - today will be a winner.  Odds not great at 1.31 but a 31% return on £100 is way, way in excess of what you get in a savings' account!

I'm not a betting man so what would I get if I went for 3 or 4 goals in a Rovers match?

Hold up with the left back then?

Oh.. I don’t know? I just got told that the left-back is done. That wasn’t supposed to be some kind of clue

In your opinion are we still going to have a fire sale to cut 10-20 million off the wage bill?

Odds vary match by match.

For today (odds pretty low) you would presently (they fluctuate up and down) get:

  • More than 1.5 goals in game (ie 2 or more goals) - 1.31- £0.31 winnings for each £ bet
  • More than 2.5 goals in game (ie 3 or more goals) - 1.93 - £0.93 winnings for each £ bet
  • More than 3.5 goals in game (ie 4 or more goals) - 3.3 - £2.30 winnings for each £ bet

I've gone big on more than 1.5 goals in today's game.

Broadly, if you'd have bet £20 / game on more than 1.5 goals / game last season (given 80%+ certainty ie result delivered), you would have been almost £200 in pocket after 46 league games

And if he did, people would moan we're boring. 

Even with limited ability, the right personnel on the pitch can organise a decent backline. Which for me is the biggest issue. Mowbray can only do so much from the sidelines, you need a keeper who can bark orders and a vocal centre half with experience who can read a game well. Hopefully we've just signed those 2 players but time will tell.

Strikers that can't score, strikers on the flanks, full-backs who can't defend---I'm worried Tony doesn't get the basics of this game.

I'll dig out my Subbuteo if that helps!

Over 2.5 goals and BTTS is the go to bet usually for us, might be a bit early in the season though.

I don't understand this. If we haven't got the right personnel on the pitch, whose fault is that? 3 and a half years remember!

I agree its taken longer than it should (and we still don't know he's got it right yet).

For that to happen one or both of Brereton and Gallagher would have to come good in a big way. 

Which of them do you reckon is firing us to glory? 🤔

I think we will be in a lot of close wins/draws for the first half of the season, 1-0, 1-1, 2-1, with Armstrong carrying us, then Dack will come back late November and start being the difference. 
As long as we don’t have any big injuries or suspensions we will do well. Travis is a huge loss, we can’t afford another. We have a top-six first 11 and a mid table squad.

Doesn't really hold any water that argument. Managers get replaced by better managers and suddenly the goals against start drying up and the team starts winning - yet the same players are on the pitch. 

Mowbray has decided to play in a way that leaves us open at the back. That is just how it is. He will live or die by how that pans out results-wise this season.

And nobody would complain we were boring if we won 1-0 every week. That's just a silly argument.

The ability of the manager is a huge variable. He has yet to show that he can get the team to defend as a team.
