This just reaffirms my belief he doesn't actually want us to get promoted....He just keeps us on the cusp so he can claim he's doing a decent job...

im`e of the opinion that most of the squad are reticent about promotion due to the fact they`ll most likely get released,only lenihan,travis,dack and maybe armstrong and nyambe would have any chance of hacking it at top level,mowbray as well would be under greater pressure,it`s a hiding to nothing for mowbray

Didn't Steve Kean get a better contract for relegating us.

I don’t think we are a dirty team, think that Travis tackle could have been a red as it was studs up but they must have got away with 5 bookings

There was definitely fire in a few bellies tonight - particularly Travis and Armstrong.

Maybe the thought of not having Brereton in the side for a couple of games. No way would he have followed in the shit that Graham did.

As is always the case with Mowbray, it’s not why happened tonight but what he does next. My money is on him picking another Tombola side as soon as he can.

Very good result and performance. Stand by my comments about the team lineup being not very forward thinking but you cant argue with that result and performance.

Walton poor for the first. Badly need a new keeper. Feel like Nyambe has gone back into his shell a tad, so reluctant to come forward. Rankin Costello with for me his best start so far although needs to be tried further forward. Overall we were defensively found wanting more than once to be honest.

In midfield, Travis came into his own in the last hour. Up until then he again looked a little off the pace, that touch and pass was superb and then he was his usual dickhead self but in a very positive way. That being said, his foul was a clear red card, awful tackle. Also felt Johnson was much better today and Downing was calm and composed too.

Graham showed what he can do that the others cant. Samuel was definitely better but should have had 3 or 4. Just hope that doesnt prompt a new deal, one swallow doesnt make a summer. Armstrong with an incredible goal and always such a danger even if he can be a bit wild with his shooting. None of the subs had any impact.

The usual win once the pressure is off. 34 year old DG still our best striker which is obviously worrying. We desperately need a new keeper this summer.

Please don't let Gallagher or Bennett start again for the rest of the season. Happy for Rothwell to sit out the remainder as well tbh.

Didn't WBA fans call him Tombola Tony ?

Travis should be captain.

Fantastic win by Rovers. 

Travis was outstanding tonight. That's performance was him at his best. 

Rankin Costello was very good at left back and his reading of the game was good throughout the game. Proved tonight why he should be part of this 1st team squad. 

Johnson second half was good. Chasing, heading and getting forward. 

The front 3 were good and Armstrong's goal was magnificent and a goal that deserve to win that game. Their movement were good all night. 

 :brfc: in such a happy mood!

I feel more frustrated than celebratory tonight. Same old story of pressure off and we perform. 

Then a  combination of disinterested/disengaged owners and the ability to appoint your own chairman means have another Teflon manager. Haven’t addressed the defence in years, prone to 2-3 prolonged meltdowns per season (Last season was it clubs longest winless run since the war or something), wasted serious money on donkeys and unable to make signings. Hard to see any sunny uplands from this.

Best case: another season bumbling around mid table. Worst case: Bury.

Just seen Armstrong's goal again. Well taken, so reactive, even Messi doesn't hit them like that. 

Goal of the season!

I said the exact same to my lad during the game. Would certainly lead by example.

You can't complain when all three strikers trusted in the starting line-up score.

Fair play. Brilliant win, tonight. Superb winner. Typical Rovers.

Can they do it again?

£12m spent on striking "talent" and Golden Graham is still the only capable forward at the club. Shocking.

Someone needs to boot Bennett in training this week to make sure he's not fit to start against West Brom

Only against West Brom; not against Luton.

Trav or Lenihan but either way, not Bennett.

What did tonight's front 3 cost?

Graham - Free?

Arma - ÂŁ1.5m?

Samuel - ÂŁ500k?

The thing is despite our hopes and dreams rovers are not ready for promotion  as it stands. If it happened this season then venkys would have had to splurge £120m plus just with a view to finishing outside of the bottom 3! Either that or they would recoup some of their losses sell the club and FO. Thus leaving us in the right royal shit. At least another season with more progression and promotion of some great kids along with experience to guide them gives them a better chance. Next season minimum goal should be the top 6 and more consistency on the pitch.

Great winning goal by Arma. Very similar to the one the Southampton lad scored against City the other day. Didn’t see enough of the game to  pass comment really but sounded like a typical Rovers “good performance when it doesn’t really matter”.

People said that last season. People will say it next season. You can't choose when is the ideal time to get promoted. This season is an opportunity wasted. Look at Cardiff tonight. Just moved into 6th spot on a good run and they were dross.
