    Cardiff away

    At risk of getting pilloried and having to take a significant Amount of flak, I think that there is a footballer in Brereton. Sure he has been disappointing in his earlier games, but he was being played out of position and in the main in very short cameos. Not a situation a young lad trying to justify a hefty price tag (nothing to do with him) should have been put in that position. He was badly managed. Since the lockdown, I think he has played much better but in a better position, his petulance withstanding, but I think that was his age and frustration took hold. Samuel played well last evening and a quick look at Cardiff comments confirms that but that may have been down to Grahams influence therefore the jury is still out. I thought Graham’s positioning and anticipation was superb but considering Samuel is coming back from a recent bad injury, there is hope. Never understood why we re-signed Gallagher as he just doesn’t fit. With a couple of wingers giving him reasonable service then maybe but we/Mowbray just don’t play that way.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    We need a proper manager. Mowbray, has gone passed his sell buy date. How can he expect us to be successful when he plays an ageing right midfield player at left back? Not slagging off Bennett because it is not fair to him but come on, the opposition manager must look at our line up and think it’s his birthday. That’s not all, look at Rothwell, who in my opinion is a footballer but the lad is predominantly right footed so playing him on the left and folk on here complain that he always comes inside, you have to ask any wonder? We have been desperate for defenders and Mowbray has said yes defenders are coming but essentially none came. Yes you can argue that we / he was unlucky that Cunningham got badly injured but that can happen and there needs to be proper back up, not a right midfield player asked to fill in and do his best. There are many other examples and don’t get me started about Chapman! Ok, rant over but Mowbray must go, for the long term future of our beloved club.We

    If Mowbray is not shifted then I will be most concerned because this squad needs major surgery and investment. He will not get a budget as he cannot be trusted to spend it wisely. He has wasted so much already and surely no owner will speculate further Unless they are mad. Having said that, this is Venky’s

    If we go into next season with this manager I’ll be very worried

    Having never actually lived in the states, I have spent allot and I mean allot of time over there on business and many times been asked or a comment in my direction like “of course you don’t celebrate the 4th of July”? My reply was Oh yes we do, but Americans have never got irony.

    January transfer window 2020

    I can understand why you are saying that but this year there will be many players available on free’s. I think there ar3 many teams in danger of going bust, so this year is a little bit different. Having said that, do I think Mowbray will recruit wisely, probably no.
  7. Let’s face it. We are just not quite good enough. All down to recruitment, wrong positions not being covered. Left back in particular. You cannot keep playing mid fielders, predominantly right footed mid fielders at left back and keep getting away with it. This situation needs to be addressed.
  8. Not as such but you cannot miss what she was saying when she said this: They are casting their problems at society. And, you know, there's no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours." – in an interview in Women's Own in 1987
  9. Agree with your points but now there must be a change from the dog eat dog attitude where win at all costs matter and the loser becomes the loser, the attitude that has been around in this country since Margaret Thatcher was prime minister and she said no such thing as community. For the record I was and still am embarrassed that she became honorary president of my beloved football club. However, with the above mentality I am shocked why Government ministers are criticising and singling out footballers. Sure they are overpaid but why haven’t other industries come in for similar treatment like hedge fund managers who are making a killing during this crisis. I think footballers are being singled out for political reasons because they are an easy target but at the end of the day, I would guess most pay their tax here unlike the finance people who are offshoring their earnings hiding their wealth to avoid paying their share, a certain Jacob Rees-Mogg springs to mind. ok rant over!

    Kenny Dalglish

    Just heard Kenny has been tested positive for Coronavirus. i an sure you will want to wish him all the best and pray for a full recovery. - The Rovers family.
  11. Whilst I agree,, I do think we were better second half because we pressed higher and that resulted in their midfield runners having less room and we didn’t back off as much. That said it was a woeful performance all round.
  12. Let’s be honest, that was a very easy and comfortable day at the office for Derby. Don't worry though, defenders are coming?
  13. Derby runners are being allowed to carry the ball 20 or 30 yards while we just back off, time and time again. so very disappointing.

    Swansea City home

    Whilst not disagreeing on quality in the box, I think we made it easy for them due to the amount of time it took to get the ball in the box. if you get the chance, watch the video and count the number of touches we took when winning the ball and getting the attack going. Just my opinion of course but I think that is why we failed to penetrate.
