    Anyone notice Reading had 15m of strikers on the pitch Saturday? Joao and Puscas.

    Holy crap - you mean we’re criticising Travis now? Jesus, lads gone from obscurity to being as good as a ball winning midfielder as I’ve seen at Ewood in years.

    Sorry but can I just unequivocally state that I believe this to be complete horse manure? In my opinion, he’s come on leaps and bounds because of the management team, not despite it.

    Adapt is a key term - yesterday too, hanging on to points is something we couldn’t do last year - Perhaps personnel is more important than tactics for this, the great “game management” debate.

    The irony being, I wouldn’t feel the need to repeat myself if my original points had been left.

    I would in a handshake - Funnily enough many of their fans would’ve said bye to Dyche last year too. I do think that we should be impressed that our current squad can react to an illness outbreak the day of the game, play a system they haven’t practiced all week with a few changes in personnel - and then control a game.

    Main forum for discussion, busiest, most “balanced” form of social media compared to FB/Twitter; Top thread come 7pm after first game of season; “MOWBRAY OUT” Cringe isn’t strong enough a word.

    Also 25 years ago. There’s not many teams that score goals for fun playing a wide 442 with two target men these days. Funnily enough, Burnley are about as close as I can think of, yet their entire philosophy is about being 100% committed, organised and extremely hard to break down.

    Just to add; it started the day he arrived. This thread however was the latest iteration and came right after the Charlton game. As for good and bad - you’re absolutely spot on and the debate will always rage on. After the two games you mentioned, and the Oldham away defeat - lowest point of his tenure for me.

    Precisely - I used to laugh at Geordies for their expectancy, their flip flop mentality towards managers and players. The initial wave of dissatisfaction in a bad result is bound to sharpen the tone/terms of a reaction but I’ll never get my “bonce” round many initial views in this thread, and without generalising too much, many leant towards out rather than in, which I still find mind-blowing.

    Didn’t see any bickering personally, but you did cut out a key point. Just to re-iterate, I am of the opinion that it’s extremely unwise to be reactive towards big decisions (in anything) hence why I still can’t get my head round the way that discourse started in this thread. 90 minutes into a new season. If it had been continued from other manager threads, or discussed from a “writings been on the wall, thus time is running out” - maybe I wouldn’t have cringed my head off? I wanted the title changed over a month ago and as I said then, I felt it made the first page of the football forum “super-over-reactive and unpalatable”. I also think it’s disrespectful, makes us sound straight out of Gateshead or even Arsenal fan TV..

    There is no justification in calling for any managers head after one game. People will try, tag on last season say things like“I’ve always felt like this”, which is exactly the point about being close minded. The reality though - whether you see little or lots of value in a manager, there are appropriate windows to sensibly move one on, with certain owners this can be borderline impossible. Its not about some “I told you so” nonsense, it’s about the opinion that the reaction was embarrassing. Still is. Thankfully those with the ability to change the thread titles are in agreement.
