    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Yes you're right. One way next season, on the presumption Dack goes, is to go 3 at the back, play with wing backs with Rothwell and Armstrong narrow playing off Graham. Dack adds to the problem as I can't see him playing like that.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    The Leeds performance also showed how he can be taken out of the game when Leeds changed tactics and fullbacks.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Actually think the old inside left or right would suit him better, exploiting the space between centre half and full back. such as the vast space left between Mulgrew and Williams/Bell which regularly gets exploited by other teams.

    Not on the wing though!

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Is that not a confidence thing? Playing more centrally in Janurary he became more instictive. Since he has been shunted out wide again he has to think more about the game and his confidence drops again causing that extra split second of indecisivness. Another case in point of Mowbray not playing to a player's strengths

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Sorry you're right but still Mowbray started with Chapman, Dack and Graham up front against Pompey and we played some great football then against Wigan he dropped Chapman and Graham opting to play Antonnson up front on his own. At Oldham, Antonnson played up front as well and we all so how effective that was. The fact remains Mowbray worries too much about the opposition rather than concentrate on his own team's strengths

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    I said at the time we won promotion despite Mowbray but not because of him! I still cannot forget that performance at Oldham last season where the week before we hammered Pompey 3-0 at Ewood then Mowbray changed the team because he was afraid of Oldham's right back and centre forward. It showed all we need to know!

    Rovers away at Villa this Saturday: 30th March - KO - 3pm

    He doesn't read the game though and its hard to mop up your own mistakes.

    Yes a decent manager is essential on the training pitch but once the game is underway you need a leader. Mulgrew isn't it. Every successful team has one leader at the back. One who can organise. Historically if we go back, Kevin Moran made Colin Hendry into a better player by the fact he organised and had the ability to read the game and mop up the mistakes. Berg on his return was another case in point.

    A commanding centre half or keeper who can read the game also helps. One that barks orders and the keep the entire back four or five in position and moves to cover any potential danger of the full back being beaten. Ours just stand and usually mark space instead of anticapting that our full backs are going to get beat.

    The mysterious case of Joe Rothwell.

    The simple reason why Rothwell is being overhyped by some is the simple reason that Mowbray has an over relience on the same tried and trusted week in week out rather than search for plan B. With every passing game that the tried and trusted fail the more the idea that playing the likes of Rothwell and the reserves is the solution. The fact that Mowbray has reluctance to search for solutions in the hope that his tried and trusted will come good again is Mowbray's biggest weakness. By the end of the season, in some fans eyes, Rothwell will be better than Messi. The fact that Mowbray said once we have nothing to play for he would try other options has only added to this. He really needs the fans to see that Rothwell can prove Mowbray's doubts wrong or not by giving him a run of games not 10 minutes here or there.

    Summer transfer window

    possibility as he plays in no.10 role. A position that Mowbray likes to sign............then play him as Raya's replacement! Seriously though, Powell only if Dack leaves
