  1. I want Mowbray to go. I want Rovers to win tomorrow. And every other game.

    If talking won football matches he might have a point.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I get that he has defaulted to Walton in the same way he defaulted to Raya - despite not having the set up to motivate either. Dack has reached talismanic status but hasn’t been near his best. But how on EARTH has Bennett earned his way to being a permanent starter? Injuries? Having no other full back? Fist pumps? He is past the point of no return. Lose tomorrow and there will be riots total and utter apathy.

    2-0 on the break after Rovers missed a great chance to level.

    Just had to check the team sheet to confirm but contrary to popular opinion here in deepest Leyland this is not actually the FA Cup Final.

    1-0 City Absolute bedlam from the plastic-Manc nobbers in the stand. “Scenes”

    Academy & U21s

    Pretty quiet first half. 0-0. Chapman hit the side netting from a free kick on the edge of the box. City have largely played on the break. Been decent from Rovers but just the game is just missing a goal to bring it to life. Quite a good turnout though. “You’re only here cos it’s city!”

    Chappers, JRC and Davenport playing tonight. No DomSam so probably on the bench tomorrow.
  9. I used to have a lot of sympathy for Bolton’s plight (there but for the grace of God and all that) but reading bile like that makes me really hope they are relegated to L2. Bury did their utmost to keep afloat while Bolton pushed the rules all the time. Now they are let off the hook for unilateral cancelling fixtures. Integrity of the league? Don’t make me laugh. The EFL is a shambles and the FA don’t care.

    Support for Gladwin

    Exactly this but doesn’t anyone have any faith that he won’t keep both. Samuel in the U23s is like a poor man’s Joe Nuttall. Gladwin, I had hoped we had seen the last of.

    Support for Gladwin

    It’s just another in a lengthening list of reasons to want Mowbray out. Can’t afford time clean the stadium or offer better match ticket deals to increase support... ...or keep giving a wage to another substandard crock not earning it? 🤔 It’s certainly a difficult one.

    If Tony goes...

    In all sincerity, he’d be a good youth coach.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Mowbray and Waggott both say things and do things which serve to make us all think that we are a “plucky L1 club” punching above our weight. Happy to avoid relegation but with lofty aspirations of a play-off tilt. Sorry but I’m also fed up with the dumbing down of expectations. Both of them are L1 standard and are taking (or at least talking) us down to their level.

    Here’s an interesting graphic. Get above the green line (90 points) and get promoted. Above the yellow (75), play-offs. Below the red (50), risk of relegation. Blue is Rovers’ actual points to date and extrapolated out to the end of the season, at the current rate of return. We are going to need to get some points from unexpected games. Promotion is all but dead. Play-offs are a fading hope. Let’s hope we can keep above that red line...
  15. Probably not related but coincidentally he did change his agent. He gets a bad rep but worse than Bennett at RB? Not sure about that. Trouble is, I just don’t believe these stories of mysterious illness or infamous knocks any more.

    Which ex manager would succeed

    We’ve spent £14m on the last 18 months and still don’t have a balanced side. We can’t waste money and blame FFP.

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    And yet we got no support. You say “no longer hate” or “not wanting them to succeed” (bit patronising) but I for one am still waiting for them to SHOW us that they have any intention to succeed. Sticking with Bowyer and Mowbray for as long as the did/have suggests that as long as things don’t get worse they are happy to watch us drift. Giving the latter £14m to waste while nothing is done to bring more fans to the club does not make them any more endearing. If that were my money I’d be doing a Levy not a Shebby. (There may be a Don McLean song in there somewhere). I don’t hate the Raos, they are fools who would be pitied if it wasn’t our club. I just want them gone after they have paid the debt they owe Jack.

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    It’s like trying to tread water while the person with their foot on your head throws £50 notes at you. And we are all getting older while we wait. There could well be fans around now who never see us in the top flight again.
  19. Stuart

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    Yeah, no, I’m not going to do that. They need to put us back where we were when they sidled up and then leave.
  20. Stuart

    If Tony goes...

    Funny isn’t it, we worry ourselves to death about hanging onto managers in case we get worse yet every one of them has had to lower their ambitions after leaving Rovers. Apart from one. Kean in exile Berg to Poland Appleton to L2 (prom to L1, left) Bowyer to L2 (prom to L1, left) Lambert to Championship (levelled out tbf) Coyle to Scotland (relegated bottom of SPL) Mowbray from L1 (failed with Coventry!)

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    It beggars belief that some folk are saying Venkys have learned from their mistakes! Here we are 9 years into their time with us STILL worrying that if Mowbray leaves then they’ll employ someone worse. Does that sound like an organisation that has learned from their mistakes??
  22. Lose to Barnsley and this may kill off my lad’s passion for Rovers completely. We must win but if we lose then Mowbray should be gone by 5pm. So it’ll be a draw.

    Ben Brereton

    Imagine scouting players with particular strengths and weaknesses and then trying to convert them into something less. Mowbray seems to demand a high work rate above all else. It’s about time they ditched those GPS bras.
