    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Evidence ? Long way to go with that one I think!

    Rovers away at Villa this Saturday: 30th March - KO - 3pm

    A couple of weeks ago I was all geared up to go to this match but then somehow just forgot about it. Only remembered this morning that we were even playing today. I think it's called Venkyitis and it just drains your enthusiasm. Only one cure as far as I know. Anyway, now that I have remembered and we have all our top defenders back I am brimming with confidence. ( Venkyitis also affects your judgement )

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    Two relegations , a string of disastrous managerial appointments and the creation of a rudderless club suggest none of the above can match Venky's for ineptitude.

    Sheffield Wednesday away Sat 16th March

    If this current run was at the start of the season and we sat bottom of the league on 4 points after 9 matches I don't think anyone would be defending the manger. If we were a normal club with a competent board made up of people who understand football I would say now is the perfect time to change the manager - International break for him to settle in and then 8 games to assess the current playing staff. Then recruit over the summer ready for next season. However, we are not a normal club. VO.

    Sheffield Wednesday away Sat 16th March

    I think we are heading the same way now. This team is worse than the one he inherited despite the money he has spent. 4 points from 27 ( probably 4 from 30 after Villa ) seems to prove that.
  6. I used to play in a football team with Craig MacKay - Don's son. On a couple of occasions, despite being obviously busy at Rovers all week, Don came down to watch from the side lines. He never tried to tell us how to play but It terrified the opposition who thought he had come to scout one of our players. In that same team, incidentally, was Steve Archibald's brother and Neil Arthur of Blancmange fame.

    Mowbray’s Future

    I hope you are right about beating Wednesday. I work in Preston and I am not looking forward to tomorrow morning.

    Unconfined joy at Bloomfield Road today by all accounts. Not because of the 2-2 draw with Southend but because the fans' sense of belonging has returned. They have got their club back and can celebrate as one. Who knows what the future holds but they have got something to believe in again. I'm jealous.

    Preston at Home

    So we had a converted midfielder, a right back and a left back as our 3 central defenders. A right midfielder at left back and a centre midfielder at right back. Is anyone surprised they looked lost! Nothing makes any sense at the moment.

    Exactly right. Venky's stated early on that one of the main reasons they bought Rovers was to act as an advertising vehicle for their company. Nothing has changed

    Tweet doesn't mention it being a trial or anything more than a 3 month visit. Nice top he's got on - anyone know where I can get one ?

    Mowbray’s Future

    I think you are right. There are a number of things to consider regarding Dack: Celebrity lifestyle, loss of form ( and motivation ), tendency to look a little heavy, off field issues - court cases, not doing community service on time etc. He's got baggage. If he's not performing at his best on the pitch then other clubs may decide not to take a risk on him unless he's going for a bargain price.

    The Relegation Thread

    This is the key issue - the owners. We can rant and rave about the manger ( who isn't good enough) and the team ( who aren't good enough) but until we get owners who understand football and care about the club we are going nowhere. We need a proper board and infrastructure to allow us to function as a real football club with ambitions. The owners are the root of all our problems. I don't rate Mowbray at all but I don't think anyone will succeed at Rovers under Venky's. I think we need to ramp up the protests again. Venky's Out.

    Mowbray’s Future

    A very subservient view. Not a lot of point in having 'an evening with Tony Mowbray' if you can't ask questions! Supporters are the lifeblood of any club. Managers are temporary employees.

    What is our record number of consecutive defeats ?
