    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I wouldn’t trust him to spend any more money

    If Tony goes...

    Don’t think Chris Hughton would suit the players we’ve already got
  4. If we even think about playing 3 at the back then Joe Rankin-Costello should be the right wing back.

    Rovers new style of play and how we play it

    It’s muddled thinking in my opinion. He wants to have options to play different styles and formations according to who we are playing or what mood he is in. problem is that some players suit a certain brand of football and others don’t. So they often get put in places that aren’t going to get the best out of them. You can achieve a lot if you have a team of players that know they’re roles in the side and are comfortable playing in it. You can have one player playing a role that’s not there best of you’ve got 10 other players that do. But we have no consistency week to week, it’s very frustrating (eg watching Armstrong drift into the centre in between the lines) I think Mowbray over values certain attributes like Versatility for example - he likes these players because they are flexible for him to crowbar in many positions and because he can’t decide what we are and what they are. The problem we’ve got now is whatever team and whatever shape he wants us to be/have we are lacking in a certain area. you want to play 3 at the back? Well we don’t have wing backs only have 3 centre backs In the squad and how do you fit Dack into that. Want to play 2 up front instead of forcing one striker to play out wide, how do you fit in all those players who seem to be no. 10’s like Dack, Downing, Holtby. Wants to bring young players through, who is next of the conveyor belt? Buckley, Butterworth, JRC, Davenport and he’s stacked the squad with players that play in those positions. Want to play a pressing game? Well then you can play then it doesn’t suit some of them want to play a possession game passing out from the back?Then why have spent money on forwards when we’ve got defenders and midfielders who can’t play that style eg Lenihan and Johnson. why spend all your money on a striker who can win headers when you have nobody in the squad who can put a damn cross into the box let alone have a proper winger. If we are meant to be believing we are building towards a playoff push then I don’t see it with Tony anymore. Not this season or next, he has had money in transfers and importantly wages and I can’t see what he’s trying to achieve, can we afford to let him have another transfer window? I’m not sure we can.

    Genuinely think that team is mental. I’ve seen pep try some formation like that before but there’s nobody on the left hand side!

    Williams and Lenihan are both in their best positions. If they are good enough there is an entirely different question. I’d rather see Williams at centre back than at left back and I’d much rather see Lenihan at centre back than centre mid. I’d also rather see Tosin given a chance because these two weren’t good enough today simple as.

    Downing was our best player on Tuesday

    Gallagher on the wing is pathetic, shame on Mowbray for trying to shoehorn him in there Thought Downing was good in cm Rothwell should play on the left Holtby I’d like to see starting I just don’t know where as he plays in dacks role. Lenihan is poor on the ball, we’ve gotta move the ball better out from the back now we’ve got good technical attackers. Graham’s lack of mobility is an issue, wish we hadn’t wasted so much much money on strikers who don’t score or play in their correct position

    I mean it just wasn’t at all. Unless he stopped watching after 15 mins

    Not particularly excited about a return to a back 3. I don’t think we’ve got the wing backs tbh. Cunningham looks more comfortable as a left back and Bennett isn’t a good enough outlet down that side. The other worry is that it’ll just encourage more of what we saw Saturday, lots of ball and no incision. To open teams up you’ve gotta have players who can run in behind and between players or commit a man with a dribble.

    I think it’s time for Tosin over Lenihan. Who else agrees ?

    Can’t get my head around Mowbray using Samuel of the bench as a right winger, surely chapman is a better option to change a game

    Personally think that would be dreadful. Gets out better players on the pitch but would be even stodgier than it was today. No pace no attacking movement in that team at all.

    I would like to see rothwell start but after Armstrong’s screamer at Reading I don’t see in place of who. Maybe save Downing for Forest on Tuesday?
