    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Agreed. We are going to be down to the diehards by the time things start getting back to normal.

    Championship Season 2020 - 2021

    Donald Trump's method of counting. "We were winning and in the top six, but now they are trying to steal it away from us". Sheffield Wednesday now up to five points.

    Surely, it must be time for the relegation thread? 😉

    Exsctly, and someone who will have more mental toughness than the vast majority of our team. Surely time to give Ripley a call to balance the side?

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Aye, we'll be hearing the same this time next season. We have now progressed to mediocrity + . Results and points wise it's the same as mediocrity, just with added goals. We still can't defend and are still mentally weak when it comes to games with any kind of pressure on them. We also have a manager who can't resist tinkering for the sake of it. Round and round it goes.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Flat track bullies. Four points from a possible 15.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    This game will be a good litmus test of the team's mental strength. As we know, in recent seasons we have faltered in the big games when there is more pressure on. We need to shed the flat track bully label and lay down a marker for the rest of the season.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Like the other guy, you have interpreted my comment to literally. To clarify again, I don't think Tony is milking Rovers, (as has been the case with certain other managers). All I meant is that he is under very little pressure and, barring a very long and sustained run of poor results, he is safe with us sitting around in midtable, which on all the evidence is his ceiling. He is in the comfort zone.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    A bit OTT. What I mean is that he's on a cushy number, compared to most other managers in Football. He is under very little pressure. I certainly don't think he's "evil" and he's not been a failure in that he got us straight back out of League One. However, all the evidence is that he's now reached his ceiling with us and it's highly unlikely he will take us any further, in spite of being well backed by the owners. I don't begrudge Tony his pension, but it's time he was topping it up elsewhere if we have any ambition to move forwards.

    The problem with Coyle is that he was a busted flush with a managerial career in a tail spin, not that he was a former Burnley manager. Mowbray is the right manager to keep us flattering to deceive and bumbling around mid-table until he decides his pension pot will suffice.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I think Gallagher was a monumental waste of money, but if Mowbray wants to persist with him it certainly has to be in the middle. Armstrong's best position is also central. He never really looked comfortable out wide.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Exactly. We only have one centre forward who is capable of scoring regularly, and he's not going to be winning the ball in the air. That is something that was not addressed during the transfer window.

    Nottingham Forest Home

    I wouldn't be so sure. My worry is that Tony's tombola will be on overdrive this season, with so many players to choose from, (when fit).

    Nottingham Forest Home

    A bloke who will get Forest promoted. Meanwhile, we will continue to flatter to deceive.

    If his attitude was that bad he would not entertain joining a Championship club on loan.
