    Season Tickets 2020-21

    Thoughts are with you Chris. If you show half as much enthusiasm in your working environment as you do for Rovers on this MB then I am sure you wont be too long without a job. Good luck.
  2. I will not be buying a season ticket whilst Mowbray and Waggott are in situ even if I win £62million on Friday's Euro jackpot nevermind my Rovers' bet winning! We shouldn't even be debating the result - Wycombe should be comfortably swept aside. I've put my money where my mouth is and placed a large bet which I fully expect to enable me to add a case of some very, very nice reds to my wine cellar!
  3. A home banker, a licence to print money, an opportunity to get a free season ticket if you are bold and brave! £660 on Rovers to win at 3/5 or 1.6 (whichever odds selection you prefer) will get you your free season ticket. It's going to be a long and difficult season for Wycombe as their opening 1-0 defeat at the hands of mighty Rotherham showed. Opportunities like this don't come along very often and we've had two good performances so far at relegated Bournemouth and PL Newcastle so this should be a stroll in the park.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Mowbray in LT on Newcastle: “We’ll go to Newcastle and do what we did against Bournemouth, ask questions of them, play on the front foot and see whether they can live with the intensity we’re trying to find.” I really do think our manager is delusional and has lost the plot.

    Would sack Mowbray and install Cook in a heartbeat. An absolute no brainer in my book.

    Nail on head! I think Mowbray's man management skills are poor - I think we've seen it with Raya, Nyambe and Reed, to name but three. And his two biggest signings (Brereton and Gallagher) have, again IMO, been handled appallingly - played out of position, sat on the bench, it's a wonder if either of those two lads have an ounce of self confidence.

    It is not as simple as that! I think Mowbray hung him out to dry on a number of occasions and, additionally, I think Raya, unsurprisingly, had very little respect for Benson our goalie coach and that is based upon what I saw with my own eyes. No wonder, IMO, Raya wanted out.

    Totally agree. Arteta has been a revelation at Arsenal and totally transformed them in just 9 months - no evolution and slow build with Arteta!!! IMO, just underlines why the dinosaurian Mowbray (and his staff) needs replacing with a dynamic, hungry and inventive young manager. I don't think we are going anywhere with Mowbray and the sooner the penny drops with our owners and the happy clappers then the better.

    Bournemouth away

    Loved the guy. I remember the Portsmouth match in the mid 1980's when he almost kicked Kennedy and O'Callaghan into orbit! 'Killer' then sorted out Woods good and proper but got his marching orders. Jimmy Hill was apoplectic on MOD! Jim and Glen knew how to feckin defend and mix it! How we could do with some of that now.

    Bournemouth away

    We lost and conceded three......................that is the stark bottom line.

    YES! IMO, failure to be realistic (you don't shop at Harrods and expect Home Bargains' prices), failure to be persuasive, failure to close the deal - there are a number of reasons, I think our recruitment process is an absolute shambles and indefensible.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I said on a number of occasions, weeks ago, that, IMO, our budget was to realise / save £15 to £20million in transfer dealings / wages. I've seen nor heard anything which makes me think otherwise. All we await is a couple of 'big' departures and my money is on Armstrong being first out the door.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Add to that the, IMO, the insignificance of our goalie coach Benson!

    Mowbray in LT: Jackanory, jackanory, jackanory..................... https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/18711672.rovers-transfer-latest-european-defender-deal-collapses/ Some real pearlers in there. Despair, despair, despair.

    IMO, a Premier League bullsh!tter. Didn't see any challenge from Bayes at all - think you could pull any 16 year old off the street to do what Bayes does. IMO, a waste of space as a journalist.

    Season Tickets 2020-21

    Totally in agreement with you. Based upon my experience and knowledge of fans who sit there, think there will be many in JW Upper who feel the same. I thinks it's crass management which will alienate hundreds of fans at a minimum and when fans like yourself feel that way then the alarm bells at Ewood should well and truly be screeching.

    Sat in JW Upper since built. Waggott can feck off if he thinks I'd even contemplate sitting anywhere else. I think Waggott is an incompetent imbecile who is way out of his depth as CEO of Rovers.

    With the money, IMO, more likely saving V's having to cough up yet another £multi million share issue..............................!!!

    Summer Transfer Window

    I don't think he would be the first player 'turned off' by Mowbray just as Bauer apparently was last summer.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Sadly, any 'sell on' clause receipts will, IMO, be used to help fill that ever growing black hole.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Got a feeling the lad has only 12 months to run on his contract and City wont want to lose him for next to nothing given he will still be under 24 (just) next summer. City would be entitled to compensation for training and development which can be far removed from a player's perceived market value which in such cases is irrelevant.
  22. Mercer

    Summer Transfer Window

    Understand City only interested in a permanent deal and would be about £4million plus 25% sell on profit.

    Summer Transfer Window

    IMO, shambolic. I could not operate under those terms - think Mowbray needs to show some b@lls and walk and sue for constructive dismissal.
