    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    Why hasn't it been addressed though? I, for one, certainly don't believe Mowbray had that press conference with no intention of actually addressing the problem. To find who is to "blame" you need inside knowledge: did we set defensive targets and not meet them or, and more likely imo, after the budget was given to Mowbray was there a caveat in which said "use this for attackers". We have never, ever invested heavily in our defence since Venkys have owned us. It's a problem that spans managers and it's hurt us more than once. I don't think any manager, not least one of Mowbray's experience, would have looked at last season and not at least attempted to buy a defender. We went after one and then that was that - it seems like the men who hit the green light on transfers had emphatically told Mowbray there is no room for defensive investments.

    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    Can you remember a time our defence hasn't come under scrutiny? There is no appetite for defensive signings. Liverpool have shown that when you put together a good defence the rest of the team falls into place. Attackers aren't under pressure to score 3 every game, although with a very good defence they do tend to be more likely to do so anyway. If the promotion of Mark Venus, or whatever it is, then I only hope he presses the need for defensive reinforcements.

    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    Off the top of my head I could name Chris Samba, The Axe, Bennie McCarthy and Steven Reid as BAME players that all achieved cult-like status with the Ewood faithful at the time they played for us. The colour of a players' skin has never been a problem for as long as I have been following Rovers. Jim Wilkinson is a hawk; he's no better than 98% of the journalists out there in that his dull nature requires outrage to attract readership. A brief read of his twitter tells you what you need to know about the man- he attempts to up his readership by targeting the content of others, with no chance of reply. An opportunist and one that should have been banned a long time ago. Amari'i Bell is a bad player because he is a bad player not because he is black. Ask Tugay (Muslim) or Samba if this club has a problem with racism.

    Do you have this on good authority or is this a dream? If minimising casualties means Venus retains his job then what's the point? He's gone with TM everywhere and no doubt if Mowbray got another job after us he'd follow him there too. I don't get the appetite for DJ as manager. I'd sooner we looked in the market for someone who has had promotions under his belt. DJ may turn out to be the next Pep but he may also be the next Bowyer.
  5. Relying on Amari'i Bell for the remainder of the season is actually heart breaking. Can Sam Hart step up?

    QPR Away

    He also has 13 years on Brereton in the sport so is of course more ready. I can’t say I’ve read many, if any, posts on here saying DG is past it. That line has been typed more by the people trying to bash BB than those trying to defend him, weirdly.

    Has Danny Graham never had an injury before?

    QPR Away

    You call practically every player shite so that comments means feck all to me Ah yeah I don’t doubt that. I meant more in terms of forcing mowbrays hand to play Holtby.

    QPR Away

    I agree he’s played very well in his time here but I’m more going down the road of forcing Mowbrays hand to make the change. Holtby looks a class above and sometimes clouds do have silver linings.

    QPR Away

    Downing injured may be a good thing. He has to give Holtby a start soon and against a QPR side we usually beat is as good as any. Dack, Holtby, Rothwell all to start with SG up front. Let’s go at them early. I wouldn’t even mind Armstrong starting up front but I think it’s imperative we get them 3 lads on the pitch together to see what they can do.

    What “risks” were these?

    BRFCS X TheTerraceStore

    Some great items on there. Half expected terrace fashion wear but that store looks like I have Father’s Day sorted for the next 10 years. Well done!

    Holtby is another level of a player ain’t he? Not seen class like that on a ball for a lot of years in a rovers strip. He just has that zip about him that all good players do. Him, Dack and Rothwell need more minutes on the pitch together. That said, Downing looked a better player when he was on to. They all did. Holtby has to start

    I can't make it tonight (again...mid week games are making a ST not worthwhile but that's another story) but if anyone knows of how a man can watch without sky I'd be appreciative wink wink nudge nudge PM

    Armstrong is lucky. I’m probably one of a few who has been happy with SG. His work rate is great and he is a menace - just wish he’d add more goals to his game!! Armstrong must be under the impression he’s due a performance soon or he will be dropped. Funnily enough, though, I think his best performances have often come from the bench!!
