    Home V Fulham 08/02/2020

    Mowbrays asked for this along with the rest of his staff. Any fan with sense was saying at the beginning of January that the club needed a player or two but unfortunately they've done exactly the same as last year. Just waiting on fans to realise that come the summer a player or two will be gone. Why do people think FFP has been all that's said over the last 5 weeks. Bowyer Mk11 in front of our eyes. Mowbray out.

    Wouldn't you replace a Bennet with a Costello as one has the chance to improve and the other is at a level that is his very limit battling relegation? Look at how Norwich just threw in two young fallbacks and basically got on with it. No risk no reward.

    Got to honest with you. That's near enough what I do with the team I help coach at U15s who plays goal. It's very basic and can be thought of on the spot. Surely there's more that goes on but not to impressed really for a pro.

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    Has to come from the fans. They are the only chance this club has of moving him on. Make the position untenable.

    Unfortunately and I don't mean any disrespect but that number of signings won't happen over the next few windows. I also find it crazy that a manager more than 2 and a half years into his time doesn't have formations and tactics nailed down. It's time to go!

    The Dack money is already gambled on the two forwards we've bought. We aren't getting 10 million plus for Dack and spending it at the same time.

    Battling central midfielder and centre back. There's enough talent in the squad to get goals it's just the team as a whole are to soft to battle for wins. Someone to go with Travis and someone to go with the city lad until the summer.

    Sheffield Wednesday (H)

    Regardless of the result, it's Mowbray out for me as he won't improve any further than he already has. The club needs to keep an upward momentum going or we'll be back in league one in no time.

    And do you think they'll sack the two others? Unless there's some sort of way for them to claim the money back on them they won't be going anywhere. Football players are unique in that they are human products, not your average worker who can't be sold to a rival company for profit. Derby will let them go but through sales rather than sacking Football is where morals go to die.

    If anyone thinks derby are going to throw 10 million or more out of the window over morals needs to realise its not how the world works, money trumps everything else. Would people be saying the same if it was a Dack or similar at Rovers? I highly doubt it. Saying and doing are two entirely different things.

    Mowbray Poll

    The only way the manager leaves is if the fans make it so uncomfortable that he walks. He won't get sacked and I don't think he's much of a level above the crap that's been here before him.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I don't believe that Mowbray is daft or losing the plot. I think he know exactly what he's doing which is to lower to expectations of fans to the point where mid table is an achievement. This gives him more room for error when it comes to bad results. Look at the trend this way. Summer time is positive with talk of battling for promotion, spend big and the sort. Then talk of getting more supporters in the ground on match days. Once tickets have been sold it becomes a case of well we'll do our best but everyone else is very good we might not compete. It's a case of sucker the fans for money, then extend the amount of time at the club through low expectations. Rinse and repeat. The only reason he's here is because the owners can't get anyone else in. Any manager with ambition questions them from the off but they won't sell because it's easier to save face and lose the equivalent of peanuts to them in tens of millions a year than admit failure.

    Raya joins Brentford

    It's only been a handful of games yet. Let's see how it is at the end of the season. Many players can start off well and then suddenly get found out. Still wasn't right that he had to be sold to buy a forward after money was promised but that's another issue entirely.

    Middlesbrough (H)

    Then he needs sacking sooner rather than later for someone who will. It's a risk for reward league. You don't get up on 1-0 unless you have a team that is head and shoulders above the rest.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Understand your point but a young lad needs guidance to improve and if their not getting that from more experienced teammates then it needs to come from the coaches or manager. If that's not happening how can they improve. Only thing that'll happen is bad habits will set in and ruin them. This year the likes or Buckley, Butterworth and Magloire should have been near the squad with a set pathway to break in. Instead they are ditched to the side for no planning short term or long term. An example of this is Norwich last year. 3 of their back 4 where academy players with vital experience in the middle to pull it all together.

    Middlesbrough (H)

    A crazy idea but do you think you could play Rothwell as a right sided wing back? He works hard up and down but has so much more ability than a Bennet and neither are actual defenders or think in a defensive way. it's almost a case of have someone who can attack but can't defend or have someone who can't do either.

    Middlesbrough (H)

    442 setup Walton Nyambe Lenihan Tosin Cunningham Chapman Travis Johnson Rothwell Dack Graham If Lenihan or Chapman can't play swap Williams and Downing into the team and put Rothwell on the right side.

    Probably has a qualified coach to help him.

    Where are you going to get the extra £60k-£80k per week wages for those guys and that's being kind.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    When your on the salary he's on there is no excuse it's success or failure, no middle ground and without the defence being address adequately it's a failure. It's a failure to commit the majority of your budget to a striker in two successive summer windows. We've probably got 5/6 genuine forwards, 12 plus midfielders and 6 recognized defenders. You do a poor job you get the criticism and the sack simple as.

    Easier to bully young lads who are desperate to get their career going. They'll put up with the bullshit as they don't usually have anywhere else to turn

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Are there any out of contract defenders that have played under the manager before? I can't see us buying anyone that's out of the blue since it doesn't follow the trend.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I think the time to sell Dack was two months ago when time would have been available to source and persuade new players to join. I know now that if he was sold tomorrow the money would disappear or be stated as already committed to what's been brought in already

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    The only issue I would have with that is that on current form with the defence we have after 10 games the team could be relegated. That's not to overreact but would you trust these lot to drag themselves out of proper danger and fight for every drop ball, take a kick in the face, foul play, anything to win games to get points needed for survival? I wouldn't. He get the rest of the window and a game or two before it's nailed on sacked for me.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Love how individindividuals think that this is a reactionary decision to suddenly not back the manager. Before yesterday's game everyone knew the defence was not good enough and certain individuals aren't good enough to play yet they are doing. Why wasn't defence focused on during the summer? To many got carried away with dark favourites to surprise the league or the talk of its alright we'll score 4 they score 3. Truth is that Rovers are in real danger of being surprise relegation contenders and this situation feels exactly the same as when bowyer had the team to score goals but couldn't defend for toffee. That was down to the manager and this situation is the exact same. If the manager can't or won't fix the issues in defence he should go. If he's not allowed to then this famous Mowbray the honourable should kick in and he should walk. He'd get offers in league 1 to build again under a stable setup. Also this idea of instant results. I think it needs to be realised that even though we are spending millions a season on players. Rovers are one decision away from being Bolton. That is venkies walking away and wanting their money back. That's why it's more important than anything to get the promotion money to the premier league to get into a more stable situation.
