Blackburn v Doncaster, FA Cup, Sat 9th Jan


Recommended Posts

Just saw Doncaster's goal. Their scorer started running from the middle dot of the field, unchallenged until outside the box before taking the shot. Pears should have done much better, but where were the midfield pair? Trybull and Travis were way behind the Doncaster player. Just sickening to see that gaping hole in midfield.

Well a full house on the Mowbray bingo. A textbook Mowbray performance with just about every ingredient on display today.  - Bright(ish) start to the game for the first 10-15 minutes but alas no

It was always going to be tough against a side like Doncaster. We did well to stay in it for as long as we did and make a contest of it. Donny have to be one of the favourites for this competitio

Beaten by a better coached and organised team, who played some nice stuff on the counter and thoroughly deserved their win.  The goalkeeper isn't good enough, terrible from Mowbray to spend money

The issue is Travis clearly not ready to start as he’s a yard behind the pace, Trybull doesn’t know how to pass forward. Buckley has never seen a right back and his positioning was awful. Dack not ready to start and can’t play the false 9. Dolan is frustrating and try’s to do to much, you could see Dack getting annoyed at him all game. And for me Pears Is god awful. 
 

I rarely dislike a player but I can see why Warnock let him go.

Apart from that we’re set.

If you read what I have wrote. That is what I’m getting at. 
 

he picks the team........

The issue is greater than , “ he picks the team “ ....it’s the whole shambolic debacle that goes with him from recruitment, to selection, to motivation, to tactical awareness, to maintaining a fan base ...we actually agree...but in a slightly different way !

The feeling is still the same this morning...what a pathetic shit show of a performance and surrender Monkey exit from a competition this club made its famous name in.

Disillusioned with everything connected with Rovers atm .

Rubbish Philipl. For me, he hasn't lost the dressing room. 

Mowbray looks frustrated. Of course he is interested in the job. He is nothing like Kean or Coyle but someone who wants to get the club back to PL whilst building the club infrastructure in the background 

The puzzled and confused looks at him yesterday suggest he might have. It was all very confusing and that frustrates players 

If it's them or him, don't think the players won't save themselves

Club debt is the owner problem and they will keep backing the club. 

You act like changing manager and all our problems will be solve. Honestly it wont. 

On the squad, Rothwell and Nyambe have club 12 option clauses. Dack just signed a new contract. Armstrong in contract talks. 

The club debt is the clubs problem, the future survival of our club is in the hands of the very people that put it in the perilous position that it is now.  

The only way without a big takeover (which isn't happening anytime soon) to sort the clubs finances out is for the club to be promoted to the Premiership and that is not happening under Tony Mowbray. Surely you can see that by now? A new will manager gives us a better chance of being promoted.

So we trigger Nyambe and Rothwell's clauses we still will have to sell them for cheaper than market value or lose them for nothing the following year. Armstrong isn't going to sign an extension for a club content to plod along in mid table, so again in the summer it will be a case of either selling or losing for nothing the following summer.

Why cant you just accept that I'm backing Mowbray still? Why try keeping get me to change my opinion. 

Who says a manager change will give us a better chance of being promoted? Surely that depends on who we appoint, whether owners back him in the same way as Mowbray as no guarantee that will happen.

Hi everyone, 

I'm hiding posts thick and fast, so we're all just wasting each others time really.

Whilst I appreciate people are angry and frustrated after yesterday, taking it out on fellow fans isn't the answer.

You've got the manager, the players, the owners, and many more involved at the club to go at if you're looking for someone to blame for our predicament. 

But attacking other fans (in both directions) isn't acceptable on here.

Can we please calm that side of things down a bit.

Thanks.

You tell us you back Mowbray but you never tell us why? What have you seen over the last 2 and a half season to make you think this is the man to take us to the Premiership?

he did`nt look frustrated yesterday,more a look of sleepiness and "i could`nt give a ****" or "i can`t bothered giving out instructions to my players cos im`e nice and snug  with my big coat on" the guy has lost the plot,the dressing room and everyones respect

That performance yesterday and a fair few performances of late have been very Coyle and Kean like though. Easy to score against, a lack of tactical nous, no shape, unmotivated players, putting attacking players on with no plan in a desperate attempt to score and being easy to beat.

But in the last 3 weeks we have drawn at home to Sheffield Wednesday, been comfortably beaten by Huddersfield and lost at home to League 1 opposition. If after yesterday you don't think Mowbray should go then I don't think you ever will. Until of course he finally does leave and then you will say it was absolutely the correct decision that the time was right.

What if we get 0-1 points from the next 2 games? We would 100% be out of play off contention then, I don't think we are at the moment, but I do think the performances have been very concerning and getting progressively worse, rather than better.

We have been on a dreadful spiral of performances since and including the Bristol city game. Lucky we had Birmingham to play and we could have easily drawn that. 

The players looked confused yesterday. I had no idea what the plan was. It harkens back to when Celtic sacked him. He's muddled at the best of times, but now he seems to have completely gone down a confusing rabbit hole. Buckley right back, Dack/Elliott false 9 and obviously Gallagher on the wing. It's all nonsense.

Gallagher didn't get on the pitch? 🤔🤔🤔

Nigel Pearson for me.

Totally agree with you, bazza. He's hard, yet intelligent and above all a man who doesn't suffer fools gladly; that's a mixture that, imo, we need behind the manager's desk. Additionally, although he's a few months older than Mowbray, his image is of a man who isn't dictated to by events. I can't imagine him signing his mates' lads, for example.

See this from the Smoggie-land evening paper: https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/eric-paylor-nigel-pearson-mans-9611087

Admittedly, it's almost 6 seasons old; but I wouldn't look beyond him in the search for the manager to put the 'Great' back in the phrase, 'This Great Club Of Ours.'

Feeling very frustrated tonight along with most on here but my frustration is based on not winning that game. We should have won after dominating the majority of possession and attempts on goal.

Over 90 minutes lots of things happen on a football pitch. Some moments of exciting play and some moments of careless and mistake ridden action. A stupid error by our goalie, his only mistake of the match, cost us the game. We could and should have had 2 or 3 goals in that second half and they defended manfully throughout.

Most of the game I agree we were slow and played in front of their defence but despite playing below par we should have won it.

Disappointed in Travis and Dack who didn’t get going and nobody really stood out for us apart from Dolan and occasionally Elliott.

As for us long suffering fans, going out in Round 3 is always so disappointing and something we’re used to.

Another Saturday night ruined.

And you forgot about The Dingles crabbing a win against MK Dons, tony!😉
