    Mowbray hinted as such in his interviews. Why wouldn’t it make sense? I don’t have the info to hand on who else came in that summer, but to suggest we just blew £7 million of a budget on one 18yr old player doesn’t make sense. I know the easy option is to say, yes Mowbray spent it! Mowbrays an idiot! But that shows a real lack of understanding on how football clubs work.

    He was criticised for performance, rightly so, and he was used in every single post on here by someone having a pop at Mowbray, every single post. And once again because you must of skipped me theory, there wasn’t £7 million available to spend on a defence. There was a budget for the team, the Brereton money was extra as an investment

    I won’t look it up now but Mowbray has suggested as such in the past. Regarding no signs in the first 2 years, yeah to us, but we don’t see what happens behind scenes, as I I’ll admit like you probably thought he was no good, but shock the professionals got it right and he’s 21 and turning into a key player.

    Last game I went to we lost 3-0 to Derby, we looked terrible. They now sit rock bottom having only scored 6 goals in 14 games. What a funny old league.

    I agree with everything else you said in your post. But my point on Brereton which i think some aren’t understanding is that we didnt have 7 million available for defenders and goal keepers. We had a budget, which we used, and then we had 7 million on top for a 19yr old we thought we could buy, make a player and sell for profit. We have all seen enough Mowbray interviews to know how tight he is, there’s no way he was given such a large budget and blew so much on a development player.

    But that’s the point, Brereton was 19, he was a weak link yes, but was used as a scapegoat by those criticising Mowbray. Like why waste 7 million on him. And it was fair to Mowbray or the player. Some fans seemed to think we had 7 million to chuck at what we wanted and that was clearly never the case, they allowed that fee as saw potential and could sell as much asset in future. Based on his form so far, and still only 21, they made the right call. When Armstrong was Brereton age, a lot of fans wanted Chapman ahead of him. Granted Armstrong is in a different position, but sometimes fans need to chill out and see the bigger picture that Mowbray has been building. Mowbray has brought on so much youth from the academy, and signed a few gems in young English talent that he has developed, like Armstrong to be the player he is now. The Mowbray out crew, simply forget we was a selling club, on our way to league 1, before Mowbray saved us and gave us this talent young squad that’s taken time to be where it could be now.

    This time last year our top scorers for past 2 years were Dack, Graham and Mulgrew. With Graham and Mulgrew best days behind them and Dacks injury coming up, we had no idea where the goals would come from. Year later, top scorers of Championship.

    Honestly I bore myself defending Mowbray, but I will continue to do so, just like I would defend the likes of Armstrong and Johnson. The European scouting gets ridiculed, but if it gets us just Kaminski it’s worth it to me. We are seeing the same with the scapegoats (Brereton and Gallagher) who were obviously signed on big fees to develop for future and now we are finally starting to see it. Mowbray has built a really, really good young squad and this is the season I expect results, and I really hope he gets them.

    You would think Bell is right footed sometimes. But anyway, no negatives today we got the win!!

    Mowbray done well today, they pressured us and we won. Everyone liked the starting line up, and bring on BJ and Gallagher when he did was good subs.

    I’d honestly take 4 points from that, anything more would be a surprise

    How nice is it to have players on the bench worth bringing on, something that hasn’t always been the case. Some what fortunate to be ahead at half time then bringing on Johnson and Gallagher for height was perfect. I think when you play a team like Preston the other night where they are so hopeless it made us a bit slow to start as Barnsley got in our face. But class prevailed. I hate watching these tight games, but those are the ones we need to be a top side. Lockdown boozing commences

    To be a top side you got to sometimes play crap and still win, we haven’t had that yet, hope this is the day!
