    The main problem for me is tactically Mowbray has got it horribly wrong. We need 3 in the centre of midfield to win the most important battle on the pitch but instead we only have 2. Dack and Graham are effectively a front 2 with Armstrong and Downing not too keen on tracking back. This leaves Evan's and Johnson having to cope with the whole of Rangers midfield, always going to be a losing battle! Having such a poor defence and goalie behind doesn't help either.

    Slow, lacking energy and just sitting off rather than applying any kind of pressure..

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Spot on. He isn't a coaching genius but his man-management is right up there & that got us promoted out of a division that the likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd and now Sunderland have found out isn't a walk in the park, however big you are. We both know last season was not bare minimum touch and go 'survival' but some twist the truth to suit their agenda. These people need to look up the definition of 'support'.

    Stewart Downing Signs

    Neck on the line this will be a good signing. Experienced, quality, not a complete softie like Whittingham. Hes got a great engine and I'm looking forward to him picking out the likes of Armstrong, Dack, Rothwell and Graham. Now for some defenders please.

    Championship season 2019-20

    Unfortunately we are 3 steps behind. Same with Mcginn last year.

    Season Tickets 2019/2020

    Mixed it with Leeds, West Brom and Derby pretty well who have all secured play-off spots this year. Yes they are over egging it to get ST sales but we have certainly mixed it with some of the bigger/better teams in the league. Our failures against lesser teams was more worrying.

    Attendances

    An idea I thought of to get money in but also give an incentive to fans would be to give a 'bonus' top up to those who preload their season ticket cards next season with money to use in the ground. Example; £50-£99.99 = 10% top up by the club £100-£199.99 = 15% top up by the club £200+ = 20% top up by the club This would bring in revenue up front for the club but also gives something in return to the fans who get a little bit extra in return for loading up their season tickets with cash up front. Am I talking rubbish?

    Attendances

    Great initiative, we should try to get as many as possible sold and look to put on a show. Announce season tickets a couple of weeks before at a fair price and we should see a few more through the turnstiles next season.

    Rovers Player of the Year

    Graham only contender for me. Important goals and our only striker we could rely on all season. Without him where would we be?

    Next Manager

    Danny Cowley would be my shout if Mowbray leaves/gets sacked. Will Venkys even know who he is? No chance.
  11. Obviously it is difficult to comment on the training that goes on behind closed doors but I think it is abundantly clear from the lack of progress and failure to learn from our mistakes that the coaching at Ewood Park is not up to scratch. I do believe Mowbray is a good man manager but really worry that we aren't going to progress with the current coaching setup. From my understanding Ben Benson is the GK coach and he was promoted from the u18s along with David Lowe who became first team coach? Last year it seemed to be our quality of players at that level that pushed us over the line and never did we have a particular style of play. This year whereby we don't have the best squad in the division and need the coaching and development of a style of play it appears our coaching isn't up to scratch. Just wondering if I am talking rubbish or if people agree that our current backroom staff department is severely under par?

    Mowbray’s Future

    Tony needs to stop with jobs for the boys and bring in a younger coach with fresh, modern ideas that can help the team. I have very little faith in David Lowe and Mark Venus and Tony clearly is not a tactical genius. I still back him at this stage but ask me again in October.

    Brentford v Rovers

    Nuttall and Graham both with a brace. 0-4

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Adalberto Penaranda Maestre worth a late move on a loan deal from Watford. Can play up front or wide and doubt his wages are daft as he's only 21.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    When he joined we were in the bottom 3 with many fans fearing we might never recover. He managed to get 22 points from 15 games but failed to keep us up. Just shy of 2 years on we are 10th in the Championship with one of the most valuable assets in the league in Dack (a Mowbray signing). We have a young squad with considerable potential and this season certainly isn't over yet. Mowbray certainly has his flaws, his tactics, Brereton signing and love for the dreadful Williams but overall he's done a great job. That could all change in a few months as things change quickly in football but to say he's not good enough is naive and silly.
