    Preston Away

    I think Hughton has the CV to match our current predicament. However, that said, can you imagine the buzz if Hughes returned? It would be awesome, fans would return. Hughes would put some fight back into the team and start organising the ‘defence’ day one. Please be reading someone in Pune. Please.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    And not to forget the needless comments regarding Magloire, which seem to have been forgotten after the flurry of activity with the Mulgrew and Cunningham deals later in the day. Mowbray’s handling of the youth players has been poor - openly criticise them in public - but generally protect the senior players in public. Neither policy has worked. This tendency always struck me as being the actions of a manager who was too scared of losing the dressing room. Like he was desperate to keep the senior players on board. However, it is beginning to look like he is managing to lose the dressing room anyway now. I recently came across this quote from Scott Brown, former Celtic and Scotland captain “But listen, I had Tony Mowbray as a manager - that was a crisis”. https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/celtic/in-full/scott-brown-tony-mowbray-now-that-was-a-crisis-1-3888920 Seemingly Mowbray has previously managed to make other debacles out of choosing the captaincy at his clubs. If it’s true that he’s losing the dressing room - combined with big money signings that are not firing and players routinely being played out of position - the writing is on the wall. I am no expert on football but we all know what the end of a managerial reign looks like.

    Fulham Away

    I thought exactly the same after the substitutions - actions of desperation and panic - seemingly not the actions of a man who has all the time in the world to slowly build his team and find the best combinations. Added to rumours - from an established and reliable poster - of dressing room bust ups earlier in the week. It looks like Tony is feeling the pressure and pressure at this club doesn’t come from the terraces and social media. Ultimately it comes from the people who just had to inject another 9million to keep afloat a club that is sitting bottom of the table. Not that their actions always are readable of course, but perhaps Tony’s actions are.

    Bolton vs Rovers

    Hmmmmmmmm. I think that perhaps you mean you don’t understand the difference between a location that lies in an administrative centre, a location that lies in a historical county, or a location that lies in both. I think perhaps that is the real reason you “couldn’t give a toss” about it. Personally, I struggle sometimes a bit with string theory, but I think it would foolhardy of me to consequently conclude that it is therefore rubbish or that it’s implications are something that “I couldn’t give a toss about”. The borders of Lancashire County Council do not represent the borders of the true County of Lancashire. That is a fact by the way, not opinion and there is a difference.

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    He hardly needs to. He is so very, very cautious when adding new signings to the team, the older more established players are almost guaranteed their game time whilst he waits half a season waiting for the pricey new talent to establish itself. For example, if the Bell/Williams situation is how it is going to be with Reed, Rothwell and Brereton waiting to get in the side then they will have to wait for injuries before they get an uninterrupted run to prove themselves. Mowbray’s a good man and should not be compared with the parasites. He does make team selections based on loyalty to established players though.

    Rovers 5 C Palace 4

    This was the match that really turned me into a rovers fan. I was about 12, my Dad always struggled to find things to do with me at the weekend (stayed with my Mum Monday - Friday). We lived in Lancaster we went to a few Morecambe and PNE games but never got hooked. We had been to a couple of Rovers home games before (I remember Millwall 0-0 from the previous seasons). I was hardly a die hard fan but I enjoyed it more than deepdale! This match we missed the first goal queing up outside. It was us who went 1-0 up after a few minutes. Eventually we got in behind the goal - right at the back - at the corner near the old entrance. I can't remember all the scorers but we were 1-3 down at half time. I'm surprised to read folk left at half time because I remember so clearly everyone around me saying there was more goals in the game. At some point earlyish in the second half - as I recall - we scored 3 goals in 5 mins!! And in my head Palace equalised with maybe 10-15 minutes left. I am fairly sure that the winning goal was nearly the last kick of the game and was a Howard Gayle penalty (not Col). One of the guys near by picked me up in the air, and ran with me to the front of the stand, just behind the goal. It took me a few minutes to find my Dad again!
