    But Mowbray got out of this division before.

    Does your last paragraph not show that Mowbray is doing a great job as we are over achieving? Look at the prediction thread. Avoiding relegation was most people's aim

    I wouldn't say it is down to Graham going off. He's good, but we aren't bullet proof when he is on the field by any stretch of the imagination. Our issues are at the back. Not whether that is nerves or being instructed to sit back, it isn't working.

    The argument that Mowbray should have spent the money elsewhere certainly has merit. At the same time, I think people are ridiculously critical of Brereton. I thought he looked OK yesterday. Made a few runs, didn't see him give the ball away, got in position for two efforts. Fans are dramatically making him out to be worse and play worse than he is. It must purely be based on the price tag, because Armstrong is far more frustrating to watch. As I said though, the price tag and how the money should have been spent is something to be critical of Mowbray about, not Brereton.

    Wigan are after Madine on loan according to Nixon. We should do the same.

    Lads, nothing changed when Graham went off. It's not like we were camped in their half when he was on second half. He looked wrecked. We weren't under the cosh because of Brereton not holding it up. We were comfortable, they were repeatedly kicking the ball out of play and astray. Rayas mistake changed the game, simple as that.

    I watched the first two episodes last night. Really enjoying it. The club is coming accross as very amateur, from the chairman to Grayson to the players. No sign of Rodwell yet. It's much better than the city one, more scandal! They weren't scouting Bell, they were scouting the winger he was marking. It named the positions they were scouting, wing was one, full back wasn't. Fake news!

    Obviously we have deficiencies elsewhere. I was responding to a poster who said Brereton has had plenty of time. So, you're just taking my comment out of context.

    No, because we can afford to use him sparingly with Graham playing so well. I would like to see his start soon though

    I watched the game with my own eyes, don't be so patronising saying I am naive to suggest him coming on had no impact. Him coming on changed nothing, we continued playing the same until raya made his blunder. Graham had clearly tired and had done little of note in the previous 20 minutes. Brereton got more touches in his 20 minutes. Rayas blunder led to the collapse. It's as simple as that.

    How has he had plenty? He hasn't even started a game

    I would say there is a bigger gap between League 1 and the championship, than between the championship and Premier league

    Ya, we were in control til Raya went rogue. It completely changed the game. Usually when keeper give away penalties there are dealing with one and one's and have to commit the foul. Raya shouldn't have even being going for that ball, let alone commuting a foul. It was a nothing ball. They were creating nothing We would definitely have dropped deeper regardless, but I don't think Birmingham would have troubled us. That wind was blowing the ball all over the shop. They wouldn't have cut us open, so ili bet the ball would have ended up going astray a lot. The weather would have suited deep defending.

    Ya, if he scored that it was game over. Ya, that would be good. He was on loan there last season, so he will be keen to have a good game.

    Goals and build his confidence. I am surprised he hasn't had a few run outs with them to be honest. Rodwell and Downing have played with them this season.
