    Summer transfer window

    Add to Hanley with Bauer the Charlton lad. Lenihan Wharton and Mulgrew. That’s cb sorted. Now just the fullbacks goalkeeper, effective wingers and Graham’s understudy. I’ll look at that between appts this aft. Football management easy.

    Summer transfer window

    If Norwich are promoted Hanley who has only played 8 games this season could be available. He’s big and can head. I wonder if we could get him on loan or outright. I feel ideal in our situation knows the club and can lead. Also has a bit of aggression added in

    Mowbray’s Future

    I agree and a basic requirement of lower league football ( unless your the most talented team in that league ie rovers league 1) is defensive organisation. Commonly known as the basics. I can’t believe that a manager who has a wealth of lower league experience is unfamiliar with this concept. Yet the facts in terms of the on the pitch antics and the statistics say he clearly doesnt. He has had 2 years to address this not two weeks. We lack height, pace and aggression our defenders are mainly makeshift midfielders. This was the case when Mowbray arrived and surprisingly has not been addressed. I’m not a professional in this area and may be missing some nuances but if my job depended on not losing and showing progression the easiest method is to not concede goals. Unless as you say you are Barcelona and going to heavily invest in the best attacking talent money can buy which we aren’t. Yet even Barcelona have an organisational shape they fall back into when defending. I may be wrong but we need not only proper defenders but a clear defensive strategy. I’m at a complete loss at what has been worked on for 2 years but if there is a strategy then it needs changing immediately and if there isn’t we need one. For this reason alone questions need to be asked of Mowbray and his team because has I said initially he is failing on the basics which for an experienced man is a worry to say the least

    Is that based on intuition or something more concrete?

    Mowbray’s Future

    Is there not a book he could read just to brush up on the bits he’s forgot. Or if he can’t be bothered reading it get our defenders to do it. Set it has homework or something along those lines. Sort of on the job training, nothing official. Its only a thought because nothing else seems to be working

    Mowbray’s Future

    If only that was in any small way true. I like Mowbray but defensively it’s shocking. Can’t think when it’s been worse. Although to be fair I’m not really trying I’ve become desensitised to heavy away defeat. Positive I didn’t go

    City or Liverpool to win the premier league

    I’m quite liking those as code names and may adopt them in all future reference to the pair

    City or Liverpool to win the premier league

    I want Burnley to lose purely on the basis I hate them more and a defeat today with yesterday’s results increases the pressure on the ginger gob. Just to clarify I can’t stand Klopp and Liverpool either and want city to win the league sort of.

    Preston at Home

    I don’t know you and respect your opinion but like every other football fan I never set off with the idea of hanging around. In January we had a chance to push on and for whatever reason Mowbray didn’t take it. Football as In life is a results business and no matter how you dress it up this is really poor. No successfully enterprise accepts mediocrity as its aim and I bet you can’t name one that does. Do I want Mowbray sacked no but let me assure you if this continues it will happen. That is a given

    Mowbray just makes a pigs dinner of it. He talks about change but changed nothing. Evans and smallwood together with Bennett moved to a new position was his change. We got that pairing out previously because it wasn’t working. He’s better saying I’m not going to change personnel so just accept it than discuss the radical and do nothing. Ill predict the next game. Team all the same members but a LT article on how it’s going to be radical. Rothwell is great, young players are under consideration bereton is a potential star. The team however is just the same.

    Can’t defend. All week Mowbray yapping on about consequences of poor defending and changes nothing

    Preston at Home

    I agree and it should be made compulsory reading for the players before each and every game so they know who and what they represent

    Preston at Home

    You don’t because you completely ignore the evidence. teams with most success over the decades. Rovers finish 7th. premiership points collected since its inception. Rovers 11th most successful teams in terms of trophies. Rovers 11th most successful small town club( independent article) Blackburn rovers. one of only a handful of premiership winners. Blackburn rovers. number of games cup semi finals appeared in 18. 20 if you count Blackburn Olympic. Longest number of consecutive fa cup games won 24 still a record Blackburn rovers. carling cup when points are awarded for wetting into the last 32. Blackburn 15th most successful with 119 points Preston have 22 and I hadn’t the time to count their position it was so low. one of only 3 teams to be founder members of the football league and premiership. Blackburn rovers average home attendance this season rovers win average away following this season rovers1100 preston 700 where have these other 6300 come from. Maybe they’ve just come to see the rovers

    Championship 2018-19

    That is so true. Was it railway end or embankment opposite the lever end at Bolton was a nightmare. They got both us and Burnley down to the hundreds in away support. You had to fight to get there get in and get out.
