  1. No lessons learned. No possession football. No plan B. No Joe Rothwell. No defence. No defenders signed. No method. No Ryan Nyambe. No positivity. No progress. No idea. You're a nice bloke, you've done a good job but this is as far you will take us. Don't ruin your legacy, do the right thing and step aside. Charlton are relegation fodder so what does that make us? Go.

    Cardiff away

    And yet, he benches him in favour of his 2 total wasters to justify spunking money we don't have. Genius. (That could also apply to Graham)

    https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/16908899.tony-mowbray-feels-a-warmth-from-fans-to-rovers-players/?ref=mac Felt sorry for Mowbray here and thought was a worthy topic for some open and frank discussion. As many of you are aware, I was a big advocate of the NAPM movement and numerous other protests, particularly when the club was on its arse under Ke*n and Coyle. In these situations, as the saying goes... Desperate times called for desperate measures and if in some way our actions helped to get us in the position we're in now then I don't regret it... If we're being honest though, it was Kean and Coyle's downright ineptitude that cost them their jobs. These days things are much more positive, (on the footballing side at least) yet the aftermath of the damage done by numerous poor managerial appointments, poor management by V*nkys is having a major effect on attendences at home. It's to be expected of course, some people lost faith, lost trust, lost the habit, lost the enjoyment, there are many variables I suppose. I lost most of those things but I always believed this club could find its way back somehow, that's why I still cared and fought for its future. Like many others, under Tony Mowbray I've found something to believe in again, I feel as if he's trustworthy, honest, decent, commited, all the things that I can't say about hardly anyone at Rovers since they took over. Because of this, I feel as I can find some identity with the club again, I look at the way he conducts himself and how the players perform and personally can't help but feel they deserve my support. I can see how other fans of this club and of others would see this as fickle or such like, fair enough, that's their opinion but it's as simple as giving the fans something to believe in, which TM has done both off and on the pitch. Yes Venkys are still the owners and yes they are ignorant but it works both ways and 2 can play that game, I'll ignore their existence as much as they ignore ours but as long as they support TM I couldn't care less. I'm not so short sighted and naive to think that this couldn't all fall apart in the drop of a hat and I doubt many reading this are either, the debt is still there and they still own the club... Whilst V*nkys are in charge anything is possible as we all know. That aside I feel this is a great opportunity to get back to supporting the club whilst there is something/someone worth while to support and make the most of this opportunity... Which bings me on to my main point... The club also needs to do something to seize this opportunity, look at the Oxford game, it doesn't take a scientist to work out why there were so many fans. Empty seats are no good to anyone so why not just do something absolutely radical like season tickets for £150 or a tenner a game? Yet prices increased, I just don't get it. There was an opportunity to really capitalise on that Oxford game that was obviously completely overlooked, perhaps its the decision makers being out of touch with the previous years and general damage that has been done but to use the phrase again... Desperate times call for desperate measures. The club need to try something new, look at the Bundesliga prices, try something like all tickets from Christmas onwards are £10 and fill the ground as much as we can, it could be pivotal to keeping us up or pushing us up the table. I hope people at the club are reading this and if you are... Be radical, talk to the fans, give everyone of every income the opportunity to support their local team, be pioneers against pricing poople out of football. Don't look to other clubs as measurement for value for money, set a new standard. We are fighting an ever more losing battle against ifollow and the red button and we have nothing to lose! TMBWA.
  4. This is garbage. 2 down in a crucial game, no f*cking pressing at all and can't string 2 passes together. Centre midfield has been a joke, going back to the days of Lowe watching players wander through the middle unchallenged. Sh*trun of form incoming, mark my words.

    Stoke City home

    This is the way.
  6. Without Watkins and Benrahma they have very little. Everything went through those 2. Would have liked to see of Armstrong was clearly offside because it didn't look like he was right at the end. Dissapointed but would have taken a point ore match.
  7. I think folk need to calm down about Samuel. Couple of decent performances, one bench cameo in a game already won and one against a side we were a class above. I'm sure he can be useful whilst injuries plague us, no doubt.
  8. Over hyped this lot. Decent side no doubt but teams give them too much respect. We gifted them points last season with Bennett at right back, was a 90 min car crash. We can hurt them.
  9. Neal


    Bradley Johnson absolutely ran it today. Totally dominated. Won everything and pressed high. Looked fit. If we can have that version of him for the rest of the season then it is well and truly game on.

    Rovers v Hull

    Armstrong will be back at Newcastle by the summer at this rate.

    January transfer window 2020

    Don't understand why he's a target at all. He won't want to come here for a kick off and hasn't shown anything that should interest us. A player living off his former wondekid status.

    January transfer window 2020

    I've watched him many times and he's all of the above. Pish. Exactly what we don't need if we have any promotion aspirations.

    January transfer window 2020

    Don't think Atsu would be a good signing personally.

    Sheffield Wednesday (A)

    I personally think Nyambe hasn't changed that much, he's just being played and has 2 decent centre halves along side him rather than a panicy Mulgrew with poor positioning. I watched him when we got relegated against Brentford and he was, by a long way, the best player on the pitch. I don't want to criticise the manager after an outstanding result but in this case he got it horribly wrong and its cost us an unknown amount of points.

    Sheffield Wednesday (A)

    Nyambe is frighteningly good.

    Ben Brereton

    Hahaha... Tell me I'm wrong though. Everyone I know thinks the same. I feel tight saying it but lad seems a bit of a simpleton. I've said my bit. All the best!

    January transfer window 2020

    This fella comes out with some amazingly stupid words. He'd just pay the money clubs are asking if we had it to spend... Seriously? Who can afford to spend that sort of money besides the top 6?

    Ben Brereton

    I don't want this to come across as a personal attack on Ben but one thing that concerns me with him is... He doesn't seem the brightest lad, I'm not sure he has the intelligence to learn how to be a successful player. Perhaps this is unfair because I don't know him personally, its just observation but he comes across as a nice lad but a bit of a wally. I'm going to get pelters for this...
  19. Trying to keep my mouth shut whilst this run is going. Foresee a score draw here but if we're actually serious about challenging then we need a win. Picking an 11 after Saturday is going to be tricky.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    Think Gallagher has had some harsh critisnbsince coming back, hung out to dry on the wing on many occasions, too many games where all he's received are floated balls up to him where all he can do is jump with the man. First real occasion I saw proper crosses from the byline into him was Preston away and he smashed that header. Feed him these types balls and he will score us goals.

    "Mandela Effect"

    Thought Sutton scored over 30 goals in a season more than once
  22. Impressed with the boys after these 4 wins, very willing to let Mowbray make me eat my words. Who'd have thought playing a right back at right back, putting our best forward (Graham) and our best winger (Rothwell) would have brought us results? (Sarcasm) This finally looks like a team that knows what they are, I just hope that Tony doesn't discard it all after one defeat. Swansea away is always going to be a tricky game, I know they're not in best form and our confidence is high but I would definitely be happy with a point to keep this unbeaten run going.
  23. Played well. The manager needs to put aside his stupid obsessions about what sort of football we should play and just play to our strengths. He's wasted yet another almost half a season messing around and it's taken for it to get to crisis point with the fans against him to make the changes we've all be crying out for. Only now does he realise Graham is our best option up front, Rothwell is best when you just let him play his game, Bennett's best position is on the bench and Nyambe is a good full back. Just leave the team alone now Tony, you don't know what's best, leave your failed experiment alone and sign some defenders and a goalkeeper in January and maybe... You might win some trust back.
  24. Heard something but that's about as much as i can say. Could be way off, hoping someone who may of heard the same might come forward and give it some more substance.
