    Given their league position I originally thought this a winnable fixture. However - when you look at their home form this is an excellent win. Not getting giddy yet - result against Brentford and I might. At the moment it would appear a certain amount of luck is on our side - with injuries forcing a change in style of play that is paying off at the moment.

    Think you could be right - seemed to be the formation we finished with midweek

    Rovers v Hull

    Though only a cameo - best we have seen from Brereton. He had amazing support from BE - but did wonder how much of that was ironic 😂. Good noise at times (esp second half) considering weather and turn out. Hull were average at best - but thought we put in a good performance. Though Armstrong got MOM - have to say Travis not far behind - and is getting better with each match.

    January transfer window 2020

    If he isn't going to sign players that will immediately challenge for the first team - I wouldn't bother. Would much prefer to see some youngsters given the opportunity.

    Just a shame they caused the mess in the first place. But credit where it is due - I thought they would have pulled the plug years ago.

    Anyone else think our lack of money is down to the Dack injury ? Selling him was our best chance of not coming foul of FFP - we are now in a financial hole with our only sellable asset being Lenihan.

    Brentford (h) - the Mowbray love in!

    We did well to beat 12 men. They looked a decent team - with the referee one of their better players

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    Wow - what an outburst. During TM's time as manager - they bank rolled the biggest League 1 budget - and given him £12m to spend on two strikers - as well as continuing to pay the wages. They are responsible for our demise - however we only need to look to Bolton to see where we could easily be.

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    To be fair to them - they have backed TM

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    Type of performance that gets managers sacked. The win didn't cover up the inadequacies in the team - so many poor insipid performances - it was like half the team didn't turn up. Gallagher out wide - could see why at first - but when they got used to the long diagonal why persist ☹ - put the poor lad central. Special mention for Armstrong who was awful - how can somebody be caught off side so many times ? Final mention for TM - very grateful for everything he has done for the club - but this team is massively under achieving - and the buck has to stop somewhere.

    Luton Town home

    Next two games will show our credentials - need 4 points really. If we got 4 points - knowing Rovers we would draw with Luton and then beat Forest. Worryingly think we are capable of 6 points - but this is Rovers - hence why would be very happy with 4 points

    Reading (A)

    Slight knock/injury ? (don't know - but would be a possible reason)

    Lewis Holtby

    I thought he had played reasonably well over last few matches ?

    Lewis Holtby

    I understand where you are coming from - but (if is as good as people say) you sometimes have to just take opportunities as they present themselves. Though I think TM has had excellent backing from the owners - it is still obvious that we can't cherry pick players as we did in Kennys golden era. In terms of planning - he wants to play a better passing game. He has tried Buckley to help that - presumably Holtby is seen as the playmaker we have been missing for a long time.

    West Brom Away

    Hmmm ... Warhurst started as a centre half - then converted to striker - the Kenny master stroke to convert to midfield. Chris Sutton started centre back. So converting players from other positions can work out - and for the previous 3 games both players got good reviews.

    Sheffield united away- League cup

    Alternatively they could sell all our best players, parts of Brockhall, parts of Ewood - run a shadow club after getting back as much of their money as possible. Seriously I do wonder when our ever expanding debt will end. But would fans want us to sell Dack to pay off part of the debt ? (though he will probably have to be sold for FFP reasons)

    Be careful what you wish for. A bit like those fans that want Venkys to go - and leave us like Bury or Bolton.

    Sheffield united away- League cup

    The old axis of power to be returned - with Smallwood and Evans. I wouldn't risk any of Saturday's starters - but is opportunity for Chapman, Brereton, Nyambe, Rothwell and Buckley to show us what they can do.
  19. DavidMailsTightPerm


    Whether the right thing or not - will make a prediction that Williams will move to left back - with Tosin at centre. Not seen Cardiff play for a while - but if they are a typical Warnock side - it would make sense. For most other teams (with Cunningham out) - would play Downing at LB to get Rothwell in the team.

    Hull (A)

    He already mentioned needing Tosin height for Cardiff - so expect either three at back or Williams at left back
  21. DavidMailsTightPerm

    Hull (A)

    A word of warning - though we deserved to win - the last two wins have all been about fine margins - which could easily go against is in the next match. In the same way the fine margins went against us in the previous two matches. Encouraging signs - but let's be realistic.

    Gallagher earnt his place in the side after Saturday

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Interesting that reverting to long ball was as much about Gallagher as it was Graham 🤔

    Middlesbrough (H)

    I am alone in this - but beyond the penalty I really struggle to think what else DG actually did. I also think we looked one paced at times with DG and Dack up front. Funny that our main outlet was Gallagher - both winning more headers than anyone else and providing much needed pace.
  25. DavidMailsTightPerm


    Don't think it is strange - TM obviously wanted Gallagher last season. When we couldn't get him - we went for Brereton. Have to seriously question the scouting on this one. Though they are both physically similar in stature - Gallagher puts in far more effort - and is more robust than Brereton. Obviously hope both come good - but at the moment Gallagher looks by far the most likely.
