  1. Haven’t felt so low in a long time. We continue to watch poor players, playing in the wrong positions . I can’t really believe they are actually their football....led and “coached” by a man who had outlived his usefulness . They play without hope, we watch without hope . Over the years Rovers managers have been measured on their recruitment....and some have done it brilliantly. Then we have Mowbray, a man who has scandalously squandered millions on , at best league 1 standard forwards , lads born in the North East or “nice lads who buy into my ethos” ......and this brings us to where we are today. Whilst Mowbray remains at the club , recruiting in the January window....we are doomed. No leadership, no atmosphere, no hope.....very sad.

    Preston Away

    No plan B ??? What’s plan A ? Yet to see anything that tells me this man has any tactical awareness... an utter dinosaur..and , sadly, he’s our dinosaur
  3. Love it LV.....Just a little addition If you can sign a fullback Who’s better than Bennett or Bell You’ll amaze us all, dear Tony As we walk the road to hell If you or your mate Waggott Can get folk through the door Before you take us back To where we were before League 1 now beckons Our championship days are run But you can save our season By leaving us, my son

    Mowbray Poll

    The feeling of hopelessness lingers around Ewood. I regard myself as a patient soul....but this “ slow burn to improvement “ is damaging the gate, fan morale and ......I’m sure player confidence.When the stagnation will be relayed to India, I’ve no idea....but.... Which players have developed under TM? How many players have regressed under TM ? How many play in their preferred position under TM ? How many fans now arrive at Ewood expecting a poor performance? Good managers are judged on their signings, good managers build from the back, a platform on which to play ...I’m NOT asking to win every week....I’m just asking for HOPE .....sadly, it’s in very short supply at Ewood...as the match day atmosphere demonstrates...I have respect fit Mowbray the man ....very little for Mowbray the manager....things HAVE to change...and they won’t with him at the helm .

    Don’t call me a plastic fan, a non season holder, therefore, second rate fan...I’m a fan of many, many years. It matters little what Waggott and his merry men do with season tickets and / or walk on prices.....what REALLY matters is WHAT TONY PUTS ON THE PITCH IN WHAT POSITIONS.....We had a decent gate against Luton ....and what did he do??? ......he continued to play players out of position, he continued to confirm we have little no plan , he continued to add to the very poor match day atmosphere by being responsible for very poor football. ”Defenders are coming”...fans aren’t Tony....Mowbray is , I believe , largely responsible for the very poor gates...I’m not asking for a team that wins every week...Im asking for a manager who gives us hope....and that hope gets us down to Ewood....it’s not happening.....but it so could with the right man in the dressing room ....it’s nothing to do with price incentives.

    My biggest issue is.......driving along Livesey Branch knowing, just knowing that this task is way beyond Tony. Just knowing that game after game it’s square pegs in round holes, play that is far too slow and a plan ?? ....what plan. I drive home thoroughly depressed...knowing, just knowing that his interview will say “ we got positives from that ,and, we go again next week” Tony, we get nothing positive from you or the boys “ on the grass” ....more depressing by the week. Don’t tell me I’m after glorious promotion...Im after a manager who I can believe in. Lovely man....job too big.....season tickets will continue to decline

    Nottingham Forest Home

    Yet again....the Mowbray selection....no nerve, no balls, no idea. WHAT on earth does he see in Gallagher ? Yet again....players out of position...yet again better players left on the bench I dream of Boro coming calling for their man...I dream of Ewood having an atmosphere once more (dire tonight) .....not whilst Mowbray is in town .......nightmare .

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Pleased with Cunningham signing.....North End fans speak very highly of him. However......I cannot believe that Mowbray hasn’t replaced Mulgrew.....looks like Williams will be the only defensive cover. I am going to enjoy typing this next sentence....Mulgrew has gone and we will be far better without him. Mowbray’s transfer dealings have been nothing short of appalling...he cannot be allowed to stay in post for much longer.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Rodwell must NOT be given a contract. Last night showed, and it’s been evident before, he has neither the legs nor the balls for midfield.....Norwich went past him with incredible ease. Dack needs to sort his head then maybe his shape will follow. Unfit physically and mentally.....a complete passenger last night Armstrong....where do I begin? At times he’s “ got it “ but ....most games he either can’t find it or can’t be arsed to find it. Much improvement needed particularly in attitude. I believe at Newcastle they called him “Little Shearer” .....it must have something to do with the ale they drink.... Bennett.....thanks ...but it’s 1 season too far. If Mowbray has him anywhere near the staring line up next season.....I fear for our survival. Mowbray.......we need to see action, not words Tony....and , during the close season, I hope you find this “ front foot “ ...you keep talking about We COULD be on the up.......but are you brave enough Tony to play the right players in their right positions .....and show the door to the luxury players , the unfit players ....and the down right not good enough to wear the shirt players?? We shall see !!!
  10. Dreadful from start to finish....unfit physically, unfit mentally.....no leadership from Mowbray.....God knows how many season tickets we will sell for next season.... NOBODY surely, can pay good money to watch this . Thanks Tony for last season.....you MUST know it is time to go

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Go...... lovely man, extremely limited manager. Too fixed in his ways, poor recruitment, archaic tactics, shocking team selection. It will be an empty Ewood next season if he remains I used to get annoyed at a former colleague of mine..... I used to think .... he wouldn’t....it then over time became clear......he couldn’t.... Ditto Mr Mowbray

    Sheffield Wednesday away Sat 16th March

    Disgusted....woeful. I have MUCH time for Mowbray the man...little if any for Mowbray the manager. We do need to make a change and, soon. When Souness came in late in his season he saw the problems and addressed them ...set up up for the challenge for the following season. ....Mowbray will never address the problems as he simply doesn’t know what they are. Damian Johnson , if not an outside appointment, could at least stop the rot. Tony did the did the right thing at Coventry....he walked....he needs to walk again .
