    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    We are a very, very average Championship team. You make it sound we are like Barca, Real, City etc who are exploding with quality in depth.

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    Boring and predictable selection. If I was a youngster at Ewood I would despair. I think Reed will be glad to be out of it, Brereton must be wondering how permanently sitting on the bench is helping his development and Chapman will be thinking wtf. As for the likes of Nyambe, Magloire, Butterworth and Buckley, what is the point? Do us all a favour Mowbray and just clear off - go and enjoy copious quantities of your wife's lemon drizzle cake. I think you are killing our club - it's stagnation at best.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Mowbray's LT article on Reed just demonstrates, IMO, why he should no longer be our manager. I think it's just b 0 l l 0 c k s and bullsh1t. If Mowbray had managed England, there's no way the 'young' Bobby Moore would have been lifting the World Cup in 1966 having just turned 25 (only about 7 months older than Reed is now)!!!

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    We should be on a roll. Fully expect two comfortable wins against QPR and Bolton. Hope Mowbray now realises we are much better on the front foot and it's best to let the opposition worry about us instead of dressing them up as Barca or Real. Mowbray needs to give the young players their head. Play them and tell them to go out enjoy and show the footballing world what they can do, Time to give the likes of Nyambe, Magloire, Davenport, Chapman, Buckley, Butterworth and Brereton some serious game time.

    Forest tomorrow will be far tougher than Derby. They will be far more physical and aggressive. I very much doubt we will be able to handle them. I would go with the same team other than Nyambe for Bennett. Think we will be well beaten tomorrow by at least two goals - it could get embarrassing.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Didn't Jason Lowe captain England U21's!? Enough said. For that money, we could have signed the likes of Pukki with plenty of change left over. Also, think Brum paid less than Armstrong's fee for Adams. Just feel for £1.75m we could have done much, much better.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Think Armstrong has one asset and that's his pace. IMO, does not have a football brain and has a very poor touch. Think we paid way, way over the top at £1.75million - as far as I could see, we were the only club in for him at that price which tells you something. IMO, not a championship player.

    But bombed big time with Brereton. Too many Joe Averages, Harts and Gladwins. Apart from Rothwell, I think he spunked £10million+ away last summer on Brereton, Armstrong and Davenport.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Which in my opinion tells you just our cr@p our management has been over recent times. I think you are being kind calling him 'decent' - just what facet of his management do you class as 'decent'? If you are prepared to accept 'mediocrity' - and I don't think Mowbray is even that - then you will regress.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    The comparisons are as football managers. Mowbray was brought in just over two years to keep us up (his words). He failed. If he had kept us up, our position today is only marginally better than it would have been then. Therefore, our club has barely progressed. Tactically and player trading wise, there is hardly any difference between the three. Mowbray's comments and excuses, IMO, are now very similar to the desperate days of Kean and C o y l e. I don't give a feck about Mowbray's 'nice guy' image, his values or his wife's lemon drizzle cake. The bottom line is Mowbray is handsomely paid to improve and progress the footballing side of the club. IMO, we are now regressing, our football, in the main, is dire, our recent results have been appalling and the thousands and thousands of empty seats are an embarrassment. In my book he has to go and quick as I think we are going nowhere other than downwards.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    I think Mowbray is morphing into Kean and C o y l e. The man has no credibility left in my view. IMO, sheer madness to keep him as manager. No, ifs and buts, I think he's clearly demonstrated he's unfit for purpose. No room for sentiment in football.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    More Mowbray madness. FFS, there is no hope. He simply has to go. And @Parsonblue thinks we already have a good manager!!!

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    You must have got pi$$ed after a rare Rovers' win and decent performance. One swallow does not make a summer. Tonight, in the main, he picked his best players (Reed, Travis & Rothwell) instead of his 'favourites' (Evans, Smallwood) and played Reed in his best position. Rothwell was a revelation. Why has it taken so, so long for Mowbray to see sense? The contrast between Rothwell and Brereton is so stark. One has so much potential and ability (and has been held back) whilst the other, IMO, is one expensive dud (who has contributed virtually zilch to the cause) and Mowbray has spunked £7million+ away on him. Dropping Nyamble to shoehorn Bennett into the team is indefensible and further evidence that Mowbray is, IMO, not up to it. IMO, Mowbray still has to go and go quickly. We even won games under Kean and C o y l e !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Much, much better. It's simple Mowbray: You play your best players (Reed, Travis, Rothwell etc) and not your 'favourites' (Evans, Smallwood) You put your players in their best position - Reed is a central midfielder and not a feckin wide man Delighted for Rothwell. When I first saw him, it was obvious he had something, there was a spark, an energy, a creativeness. Conversely, I see nothing in Brereton. The contrast is so stark. Posted about Rothwell's potential and my opinion of Brereton (think he's a very expensive dud) so many times.

    Let's hope Mowbray doesn't feck tonight up with silly tactical changes / substitutions.
