    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I think that quote and article sum up the fact he feels no pressure what so ever from the board or owners. Sadly I think even with a relegation back to L1, Mowbray has feathered his nest to such an extent that he would still get no pressure from the board. A manager should never have a say in the appointment of board members, never mind be overly friendly with them. After raising optimism over the last couple of years it does feel like were slipping back to the Kean/Coyle days. Sigh,.

    I cant understand this. We have seen multiple goals ruled out because the ball has brushed an arm by a tiny amount and had no bearing on the outcome, yet the same rule doesnt apply to the defenders. Watching the rugby, they have a similar system which seemed to work OK, partly because the on pitch ref and virtual ref are miked up and the footage/conversation is played on the stadium screens. At least it was clear what is going on. Said from the start VAR is a shambles. Football is a spectator sport. VAR is ruining the spectacle and is therefore in no way good for the game. It doesnt help VAR however, footballs rule makers seem intent on complicating the game beyond reason and penalising the tiniest infringement.

    He has to go immediately after the game. The board and owners need to find some courage from somewhere and sack him even if he is their mate. We will be in league 1 unless we change very soon. Nothing will change though as Mowbray is mates with the board. No pressure no passion no performance.

    Interview with Klopp basically saying Liverpool will miss the Carabao cup semi final because they are going to Qatar to the world club championships. Effectively saying the Qatar games are more important than a domestic cup. Wonder how the FA would feel. I would personally replace them with Arsenal if thats the clubs view. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50240295

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    The latest LET article reads as if it was written by Mowbray himself...blaming injuries in defence to the current downturn in form. Not the fact recruitment in that area has been woeful. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/18004233.mowbray-need-short-break-not-permanent-one/

    Agree were desperate for a change. Also agree that hes onto a cushy number with the board (who he helped select) and the Owners and therefore is unlikely the get the can anytime soon. Its wrong on all levels that a manager is under no pressure to perform because the board are essentially his mates. Disagree that the majority of fans want him to stay. Look at the poll on this site. 90% in favour of out.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I guess it depends how much mediocre management and abject performances you're happy to accept and for how long. If this forum with many hundreds of members is a snapshot of the fanbase I would disagree only 20% want him out. I've not seen any positives given in his support for quite a while. Maybe I am wrong and this is a forum full of extremists.

    If hes not gone by Xmas I think well be relegated. Hes lost the plot and they players dont seem to be with him.

    Evan's and Bennett CM. Wtf.... Its like a pub league team where the fat manager just picks his best mates from the pub. Shocker. If I was a Dack Travis Rothwell etc I'd be on to my agent.

    Amazing result. Goes to show what good coaching and good recruitment can do. Look at what Man U have spent on dross compared to Leicester. Does help to have the PL money coming in. we couldn't have picked a worse time to get relegated. Just before the big money started.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Cunningham was only a last minute loan deal rather than a well scouted and shrew recruit. If we had owners who payed attention or a proper board, I could see a bad defeat tomorrow as his last game. With this lot I think hes pretty much immune, which likely explains the lack of pressure hes feeling over the form or lack of desire to rectify.

    Hope someone manages to take a Mowbray out banner which gets picked up on the cameras. His quotes are becoming Keane esque. Cant see us getting much. Preston are a decent team that has cost far less than ours. Their striker Barkhausen was signed from my local side Morecambe for hardly anything. Hes scored more this year than Brereton and Gallagher combined have managed across two seasons. Chances of Bauer scoring from a corner whilst keeping a clean sheet?
