    Sam Gallagher Returns

    He played well in that role v Hull first game of the season. Been done to death though it's clear it only works once in a while.

    Surely he's ready for a backup role by now.

    His eggs must be like rubber every morning. Never seen a gaffer overcook things so often.

    On another note Covid has robbed the club of another 18k gate today as they'd surely have brought a large following of 5k plus. Dependent on what silly Steve did with the ticket prices of course.

    No i can't see it either teams or at least a lot of them set out to negate and cancel out each other and try and open up a little space elsewhere. The championship tactics wise resembles the early 90's Serie A although there isn't the quality to stand out. Our pool of strikers will continue to be rotated and continue to flatter to deceive the only hope is be in a similar position this time next season and a couple of the hit their little purple patches. Very much seems a law of averages system Mowbray employs and just goes in hope all the dice drop in his favour at some point if he keeps rolling them.

    Said all along that Gallagher is an old school forward or at least has some attributes for it. 442 with a decent striker and let him do the graft like Newell did for Speedie then Shearer. Ideal for that you don't have to be the best technician in the world just graft. Pray 442 comes back in fashion soon although god knows what TMs interpretation of it would be.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    3 things that will end up defining this season In no particular order...... 1) The poor efforts in losing 3 in a row after lockdown and the good start. Having got yourselves in a good position with not many left and nothing to fear in 2 of them you simply have to go for it. We didn't, end of. 2) The loss of Dack - Whilst i don't adhere to the assumption we'd be loads of points better off as it's never that simplistic i'm pretty confident we'd have at least 3 more. 3) The 5 million wasted following on from the silly punt the summer before. Wrong player, wrong position...again.

    Decent effort in the end. Could have been 5-5 today but too little too late.

    A last ditch attempt to disrupt WEst Broms rythmn more than anything and it worked.

    Put your money upfront and hope they bang a few in then you can double it in a quick turnaround. Both Dack and Armstrong should bring in far more than was paid for them. Rudy, well unbelievable profit in a short time. Rhodes 8 mill in, about 12 million out so about 1 mill per year profit in his time here ? Not hard to see what the 'investors' are up to really. They've hit the buffers with their latest round of advice though.

    For an expert he's completely blind to this.

    Just like he persists with the wrong players in wrong positions and uncomfortable formations he also persists with these he's signed. Signed for lge 1 and belong there. It's a great human quality giving lads he likes chance after chance after chance but it's not something associated with big progress. It wouldn't be so bad if they were strictly back up but his rotation policy means they very much aren't.

    When was the last time we had anyone who bore their teeth ? Either in the dugout or not n the pitch.
  15. Think cavernous echo chamber, sadly. Be like Hillsborough used to be.
