    Brentford (h) - the Mowbray love in!

    Good result and that's all that matters. But I still think theirs still things that didn't look too great which will potentially kill us in future games. The Central midfield in the 2nd half seemed like a massive gap, it was very open all 2nd half, on another day we could have dropped points. I don't think Travis ( Im massive fan of travis btw) or Evans gave us any cover in front of the back 4. Probably not entirely their fault but as a team sometimes we need to be a bit more compact and close up the massive holes and gaps. They let runners go and there became massive gaps, luckily brentford didn't really have that quality in the final 3rd. We should have killed the game off at times but defensively i just thought we left ourselves very open and on another day we could of dropped points. We need to work on being more solid and closing up gaps especially when we have a lead. I just think game management could of been better, and if we are to pick up more points away from home then its something we really need to improve. But a clean sheet and back to back wins. So I will shut up and enjoy. But I just think if we want to improve our league position in terms of getting points away from home especially then we need to make games less open (I know it was a home game, but we pick up more points at home).

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I think it will need to be pretty bad for him to get the boot. It has the feeling he has all his friends in the high enough places to keep him in charge for quite a while, until it gets really bad, and im talking in the relegation places for a while. Venkys are not football people, whether we lose to Preston or even if it was a 10-0 loss to burnley they wouldn't be thinking lets sack him. It will need to be relegation looking stuff for that I think.

    Could Richie Smallwood do a job at CB? He lacks any quality to play cm at this level, but he doesn't mid doing the dirty work, and CB isn't the toughest position to play as long as you can - tackle, head, hoof. Lenihan as a partner to try and talk him through a game? Maybe I'm thinking too much like Mowbary... players out of position...

    Fulham Away

    Every other option looks p!ss poor, hes probably got the experience to be solid their. We got enough midfielders to cover his cm position, plus gives us another opportunity to play another attacking midfielder in their. Travis has the legs to do the dirty work. Hes experienced enough to cover their I reckon. But yeh Johnson is one of our best cms, but I just dont have faith in other cbs ☹️

    Fulham Away

    I would go - Walton Nyambe Lenihan Johnson Cunningham Travis Rothwell Armstrong Dack Downing Gallagher I reckon 3-1 or 4-0 loss. We need to start on the front foot or we will get pummeled if we sit in.

    I would rather raya over this chap... hes old and poo. Not rated him for years. Seems like an easy option to me, we have struggled to afford anyone and hes going for a has been that's never going to get better but only get worse and is cheap and mowbary used to have him at WBA back in 2008. Not For Me.

    heres a shout, what about Peter Crouch on a Free ? I think he would be a alright squad player. Forget Age, experience, and squad role I think he would do a job

    Not really big news, but I know Ben Gladwin was meant to turn up for a mortgage meeting way down south today in Reading, and never showed up. The fact that hes down in Reading having that done would say to me hes more than likely out the door. (Hopefully!) Although he didnt show up for it haha

    Reading v Rovers

    We are unpredictable because we are a mid table side! Thats what mid table teams do, there inconsistent, can get any result (win lose or draw) at anywhere in the league. Were too good to go down, and were not good enough to go up. We will end up between 10th - 13th IMO. Am I angry about it? no... am I frustrated a bit with it? yes. I have NO idea what result to expect for this lol. I'm going to go with what someone else said earlier, a nail biting win, or a bad defeat. Prediction: 0-0 🤣 We should look to finish as strong as possible, then more league progression next season without spending big. Thats the reality folks. We haven't got Pepe in charge, its Tony Mowbray. I think since hes taken over hes deserved to have a bit of time to see what he can do with us in the championship. He is frustrating but its much better than the previous 7 years we've had.

    Brentford v Rovers

    thanks for your help so far but all those tickets are gone. Don’t suppose there’s another hero out there with any spare to sell?
