    Spot on, TM as much as i admire some of the stuff he does clearly has a rotation policy which fluctuates between keeping his squad happy and fearing the opposition. I notice his personal PR man is back again, same guy who'd be absent if we'd lost 3 on the trot. The point he always misses is Mowbray has been here now for several seasons, get this...we know how he works. More often than not to be fair his methods see us through so more power to him. As always though consistency is what gets you places so if we/he develop that in terms of seeing out games we'll be on a winner.

    Absolute mongs the lot of them why doesn't it dawn on some that cheering on players even when they are having a bad day is the best way to get them going ? Shithousing your own players especially new ones is the work of arseholes.

    Please lets have him in a good attacking mid role i just don't think you can have sitting types in front of the defence pinging crossfield passes etc in this league. Just doesn't suit our attackers either no real target men and no flying wingers to drop it in front of, midfield is a battlefield in the championship and it' where you need your generals.

    Good point and something we have to come to terms with these days as we don't have the pull nor the money to grease the wheels we used to. Someone said it's like picking up a load of balls one by one then throwing them all up in the air, not moving and hoping one just drops directly in your lap. Once they've done their pitch and made their offer there isn't a lot they can do and it goes someway to explaining the often scattergun approach in what you end up with. Although on the other side of the coin you have to be going for the right types in the right positions in the first place there still didn't seem to be many good defenders on the radar !

    Our stadium manager, matchday police and whoever else involved don't seem to want that it makes a dozy lazy day at Ewood hardwork they don't want shaking out of their slumber by home and away fans shouting at each other over a fence, block of seats and netting, it's all part of the match day experience at most grounds but not the trailblazers at Ewood. Seems they'd much rather alienate a few hundred into not coming at all.

    Cracking signing at this stage of the season nice little between windows boost well done TM and all concerned. Hope it's a signing for the right reasons and it works out. More to the point use him in his best position and he'll bring maximum benefit to the team, no shoehorning please.

    Did he get the Premier Suite and what's the breakfast like at Stanley House anyone know...... ? Hopefully he dresses the part before he meets old Tone !

    If he'd leave the back line and overall spine of the team alone all season it would help i think but then again he really doesn't know his best side so he keeps it flexible by setting out to stop the different opposition first and foremost.

    Something John Williams took a while to realise but he said similar to what you've said there a few times once it sunk in. Tough tough part of the world when it comes to brass you only have to look at the town and non existent nightlife etc. Add in the increasing competition for the spare quid in the pocket these days and it paints an even harder picture.

    Is this the first fruits of the new Euro network of sorts ?

    Awful manager if ever anyone got by winging it it is him i'm amazed he never ended up at Blackpool. Where is the goon now i wonder ?

    There'll be a complete change in the way we play anyway if Dack departs i think.
