    Mowbray Out.

    Still can’t believe people want Mowbray out. We deserved more first 2 games, and now got a great 6 points with 2 clean sheets. He was criticised for his transfers, yet Downing is a great addition, Cunningham looks good, Johnson is a vast improvement on Evans and Smallwood, and he’s got a good centre back pairing in Williams and Lenihan. Do people really want us to sack him now? That’s just crazy. Is he perfect? Not at all. Has he built a good team? Yes. This is Mowbrays season to see where he can take us and on the 4 games so far I am giving him the backing he deserves.

    Mowbray Out.

    Subjective, so you’re allowed to think that - but we consistently got in behind with Armstrong’s pace because they press high up. Gallagher also then offered plenty of pressing, aerial knockdowns and won the free kick for the goal with a wonderful touch out wide. Second point, Bennett for me is now a weak point for sure, but in some ways - it can’t be ignored that he repeatedly put us on the front foot with clever touches, constantly being in position to support the Gally knock down with our press or diagonal, and another few decent balls in the box or down the flank. This is why I tear my hair out at “square pegs” closed mindedness, because there is plenty of argument to suggest there is method in the decision making. Even if you’re own take isn’t “Mowbrayesque”
  4. Fox & Hounds, Brown Cow, White Bull, Moorgate, Lord Raglan, Wellington and you can nip through to the Navigation at Mill Hill.

    Downing is a revelation. Johnson is giving us that bite and composure in midfield that we haven’t had in...... a decade??! Lots to improve on but plenty to be positive about. Cunningham looks great. Bennett was a liability in the first half but got marginally better in the second. I haven’t seen a Rovers side look so comfortable in possession for years. Thought the same at Fulham. Very impressive. We might do alright this year.

    We move on to Cardiff 3 points safe in the bag
  7. My memory must be fading but I can’t think of loads of pubs apart from the Brown Cow and the one on the corner whose name I can never remember. But you’re right Matty in that there are match day alternatives in pubs. My match day experience was the Manxman which was always packed on a Saturday so I never associated Livesey Branch Road as a goer!

    I'd go three at the back, definitely not Bell or Williams as an out and out LB.

    Great 3 points that, and two clean sheets in a row. I feel we controlled the second half. After losing the first 2 games, I still felt we will progress and have a good season and I still believe that.

    Lenihan and Del at the back as well; what is that, 6 wins out of the last 8 they've played together at the back? Could have a proper Championship partnership pairing at the back there.

    Definitely agree with everyone that Johnson is a big upgrade. Slightly cautious though. He got the ball tangled under his feet a few times tonight and made a few heavy touches which resulted in lost possession in our own half quite a few times. Will be punished for that against the bigger teams. Downing MOTM. Best footballing brain on the pitch tonight. Not sure what to do about LB on Saturday.

    Cunningham can’t play against Cardiff

    Great result 👍 Good points for me Defensively we are very much improved on last season, the difference made by playing an actual left back there is pronounced. Lenihan and Williams are a very good cb partnership for this level. Walton was great when called upon and looked commanding when dealing with high balls. Downing - wow, I was worried that we had whittingham mk II but he was immense tonight and stood out with his intelligence and passing ability. Dack came into the game more in the second half until he was clashed but he was beginning to look dangerous. Johnson gets stuck in and really puts himself about, good to see. Travis was superb, tracking back and showing a lot of energy The bad... Going forward we look poor, not much creativity and we give the ball away a fair bit. Final ball was often a let down. Perhaps this will improve as the squad gets more familiar with each other and the new style of play. Bennet was poor, along with Gallagher and Armstrong. If we had a good RB and a dangerous striker then we would be looking at top 6 I reckon. Overall a really enjoyable match. I feel proud to be a Rovers fan when we play like that, with commitment and graft. Hopefully Dack isn’t injured and continues to improve back to the level he reached last season. I’d love to see Brereton given more of a chance up front as I don’t think Gallagher is the answer there and Graham has been wonderful but is surely nearing the end of his time with us.

    Great win and second half performance. Still an awful lot to improve on, which I think is a positive in a weird way. We’ve got the makings of a decent side, it just needs to be put together in the right way. I don’t think that Mowbray is the man if I’m being honest, but he’s bought himself a few more games to have a go after the past 2 results.

    It's a real shitter that Cunningham can't play at weekend. I'd actually be inclined to play Hart at left back though rather than shunt William's out wide, even if Tosin is fit. Lenihan, Williams and Walton need to keep on playing together and developing their understanding on the pitch.

    Of course he gets credit for the wins. Doesn't change the fact we are still seeing some strange decisions in terms of our £5m striker playing ineffectively on the wing and Bennett repeatedly shooting us in the foot at RB. Nothing wrong with constructive criticism, it's the only way to improve. Tony's comments suggests he knows this though so it's fine.

    Our downfall last season was our defence. By the looks of things (if we keep them fit) we are much stronger there.

    Anyone would think Hull City are the new Leeds Utd the way Sky Football are going on about them.

    The manager's brought in half the team by now, and coached the rest of them for two and a half years. If he's taking the stick for the loses, give him the credit for the wins.

    Downing is the new Gordon Cowans. Very impressive display tonight, well done Rovers!
  21. DE.

    Hull (A)

    Hopefully he's including himself in that. We aren't far away but the manager is still making some unnecessary team selections which are making things harder than they need to be.

    Cunningham is eligible to play for Rovers in this season's Carabao Cup, but not in any games against his parent club.

    Think we play Cardiff and Cunningham can't play.

    "So much more still to be improved" - Tony He's not wrong. He's got his head screwed on and he wants what's right for this club. Long may it continue!

    But Mowbray would still pick Bennett
  26. Paul Mani

    Hull (A)

    This is a great point. We made our own luck tonight by going away and being in the front foot. Every credit!
