    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Never heard this before but the commentary was so biased it could have been Leicester tv. I saw well organised defence work not an unlucky Leicester. Also from the limited highlights we missed a fair few ourself. Who where the commentators Gary linekar and Alan Smith?

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Completely agree he would be ideal. Not perfect but everything we need. Get stuck in,lead the defence and will help lenihan. Also knows the club and possibly available for a reasonable price
  3. There was but 19800 where locked outside
  4. Maybe he’s one of the ones for the chop.

    Championship 2018-19

    I said exactly the same to the fella next to me on Saturday. It was embarrassing at times made worse by the fact that when the ref didn’t stop the game the jumped back up and ran around without any problems. Personally I just can’t stand it and find it infuriating.

    Norwich - tempting fate

    To be honest I don’t really care. I hope they both do spectacularly well and that opens up the extra spaces for Burnley to fall through the trapdoor. At the same time we go up with the Farke/ Sheffield/ Mowbray/ German/ continental/ fluid yet organised system that sets us apart from the others and for once other teams want to be like us. That would make up for nights like tonight attending other people’s parties COYB

    Norwich - tempting fate

    Sorry my sentence / paragraph construction is poor. 1)They have a similar format to Huddersfield. 2)Relegated by Christmas is my opinion of Norwich not Huddersfield 3) I dont believe that their format is the one to follow. 4) I think Sheffield Uniteds is better.

    Norwich - tempting fate

    I’m assuming that is sarcasm. They are the new Huddersfield. Obscure German manager with a group of unknown European players/ germans. Relegated in reality by Christmas. Sometimes you get the roll of the dice and everything goes right and this is one of those anomalies. Under no set of circumstances do we need to become the new Norwich other than the self belief and luck aspect. Sheff United on the other hand are a completely different story.

    Premier League Stuff

    Totally agree. The best bit that was by the end those great supporters who the media idolise had all left the ground. Funny how easy it is to be loyal when your winning.

    ROVERS V Frank Lampards DCFC

    It’s not Mowbrays usual preferred team. That was Saturday

    Rovers Player of the Year

    Travis for me had to force his way into the team and hold down that place with I believe a manager who was waiting for the opportunity to replace him. Stood up to that pressure and more than earned his place. It’s a pity the manager can’t adopt the same sink or swim attitude with some of his other regulars.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Putting the Venky issue to one side but not marginalising it. ( to prevent this being an ownership discussion). We are not developing has a team. Mowbray talks about change but his actions defend the status quo. The current run of defeats by any standard is poor but his team selection remains the same. He seems to trust players and formations that are failing. He suggests the reason this can’t be changed is the alternatives are not up to the job ( chapman, rothwell , travis to a degree and all the under 23 squad). This is understandable if those he believes are competent to deliver his objectives are achieving them. I am at a complete and utter loss at the current mindset. He is in as he acknowledges a results business but does not appear willing to or capable of the making the decisions needed. In the end if something’s not working change it. It is unlikely that repeating it will be successful. This applies to team selection the manager( Southampton as an example) and the owners.

    While I’m not an advocate of selling Dack his goals could be replaced by investing in solid defenders to reduce the appalling goals conceded column
  14. I think your spot on. However if we continue like this Mowbray won’t be here much past October of next season. He makes absolutely no attempt to rectify the defensive problems. Not one of the guys who made the training ground noisy this week can defend. At Coventry he needed a defence and didn’t address it and he hasn’t done here. He doesn’t appear to reflect on his failings and address them. He appears to have an ability to blame failure on the junior members of the squad whilst never once applying the same criteria to the more senior staff ( mulgrew ,Conway Bennett William). We are in free fall as were Coventry .He had an appalling win ratio at Celtic until he was removed and while he is respected in boro they went into a downward spiral as well He needs to stop talking and start doing or he will be out if a job before the turn of the year. Mowbray has an immense amount of footballing experience but appears to learn nothing from it. I don’t remember who said this but experience is directly proportional to the intelligence that’s exposed to it send a cabbage around the world it won’t come back an expert in geography it will come back a cabbage PS I really hope this is not true because of all the recent managers I would love him to succeed.

    Or don’t play him put him on the bench and then blame him for our defensive weakness
