    Championship season 2019-20

    Weird isn't it, but that's modern football for you for some clubs. Qualifying for Europe is a great achievement, actually being in it seems to be a hindrance. We have been guilty of that at times, I'm thinking the games against CSKA and Genclerbirligi under Souness. On a slightly different note, but it drives me mad that that teams situated in midtable in the top flight play weakened teams in the League & FA Cup, these clubs should be throwing absolutely everything at the chance to win a major trophy.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I think Brereton replacing Dack & Gallagher replacing Graham ready for next season was the initial thinking behind signing them both in 2018 & 19 respectively, but in between that it seems to have all gone to pot with Mowbray constantly changing formation and personnel, plus the fact that the two mentioned have ended up being terrible signings.

    West Brom at home

    It was nice to see one of the midfielders breaking his neck to get beyond the strikers to be honest, it's something we very rarely see. I bet Mowbray was having a fit on the bench.

    The Ryan Nyambe Appreciation Thread

    Nyambe looks like he could genuinely terrify the opposition when he starts to bomb forward, so much pace and power, just needs to work on that final ball and decision making in the final third.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I'm not sure Gallagher is a number 10. I remain convinced that Brereton & Gallagher were signed to learn "our way of playing" as Mowbray always puts it, in view to replacing the Dack/Graham partnership from the 20/21 season.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    Seeing as Mowbray doesn't like "flighty" wingers and loves number 10s, how about more of a 4222 formation? Seems like we went that way when we made the 4 subs yesterday. Probably get the best of what ever limited player is in Gallagher that way too, as let's be honest he's going to play more often than not. Problem is we would need two bloody good full backs to get that system to work.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Whilst I agree with this, Mowbray's sides haven't played with natural width for the 3.5 years he's been here, I don't see that changing now.

    Championship season 2019-20

    2013 was the last time a side finished 6th on less than 70 points, it was Leicester with 68. Could be even lower than that this year with the way things are going. It really was there for the taking this season, and one we'll look back on in a few years as a huge missed opportunity.

    West Brom at home

    Mowbray will always go around in these cycles though, horrible winless runs followed by an ok run with the odd really good run thrown in there. In the end it all mounts to W1, L1, D1. More or less where we have been at this level since 2012.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Gallagher to Palace just gave me flashbacks to when they paid us 2.5m for Shefki Kuqi.

    West Brom at home

    I think we'll see Bennett & Gallagher in for JRC and Graham.

    Season Restart

    Face masks and socially distant seating, can't say I'm in any rush to get back under them conditions to be honest

    Season Restart

    Interesting. I think it would be an idea not to have any away fans anywhere for a while and see how things go.

    Dunn joins (Blackpool) Barrow

    Hopefully we'll send Gallagher & Brereton 🤞

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Yeah I was going to say similar, Brereton would have spent the season at Barrow if he had come through the academy.
