    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    Bennett is going to get roasted today 🙄

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    My main concern is he will stick with his favourites and we kick off the first game next year with Smallwood and Evans in the middle. This would be a clear sign that he hasn't learned anything from this year and would be the final straw for me. We're four players off giving the play offs a decent crack next year imo and I'm hoping Mowbrays comments in the media about needing to strengthen the current squad only in case of injury are a smoke screen, though I struggle to see how that'll work in the budget meeting with Venkys. So I've voted for him to go but I've accepted he has the summer to improve the squad, more for my own sanity than any rational thinking because he ain't going anywhere.

    I thought Conway played well actually, put in quite a few decent balls into the box and kept running till the end. Bennett on the other hand...

    Where has this performance come from? Credit where its due, a million miles away from where we've been recently. I call 0-0 though, Derby robbing us of a deserved win like we did at their place.

    Williams. Seriously Tony?

    He's just not a very good manager, this is the main problem.

    I've thought this for a while as well

    He's built up quite a lot of leeway with a chunk of the fanbase I get that. And in some ways I wish I was given to that way of thinking. But in truth it's naivety at best for me; we're getting nowhere near the PL with Mowbray as manager. His player recruitment, the fact he still doesn't know our best system, playing people out of position, sticking with players that got us promoted from an inferior league last year and sound bites in the media blaming the players every week are just some of the reason he's reached the end for me. As you say though... Bomb proof.

    Mowbray’s Future

    https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17535359.rovers-boss-reveals-transfer-plans-after-defensive-injuries/ Tony is on fire this morning. I will paraphrase the best bits so no one has to suffer the LT website; “I’ve talked about it for a few weeks now. It’s an area of the pitch that we have to strengthen. “When I say strengthen I mean add competition." Firstly; a few weeks Tone? A few f7cking weeks? Secondly; I could 'add competition' to our back-line at the minute, and my touch is further than most people can kick it. Again this screams of him not wanting to upset his favourites. It's pathetic. “Ultimately it doesn’t matter to me who plays in the team, the team has to win, and when you win you stay in the team. I’ve said that to them all." Firstly; what? Secondly; the team isn't winning is it T? “I talk about the depth. Jack Rodwell’s a midfield player who we’ve converted into a centre half and when he’s played I think he’s done extremely well and is very focussed on his job." You converted him Tony you wand, stop clawing for excuses it's ruining a lot of the good work you have done. “We want to create competition in our team with what you might called stereotypical old-fashioned defenders who want to head the ball, defend and be the main man at the back.” Why are you realising this 87 days later than everyone else? You had the opportunity to strengthen that area in January and didn't.

    Have you been in a basement somewhere for the last few months? Tony's basement.

    We're going to get bummed, 6-2. Tony blames each player individually after the game and absolves himself completely.

    Not for me skipper.

    Great Post. Totally agree. I wish I could think about it like you have on a rational level but I'm too angry. I will therefore continue with the 'oh f7ck off Tony' approach whilst yourself and others analyse our situation more sensibly.
