  1. Think Rothwell is crucial to the way we want to play on the counter. Transitions will be a lot slower without him.
  2. Wow... I'd have a think about that Mike. The 5 games he missed for us, we lost 4 and won 1. Critical player for us.
  3. I just completely dislike anything that moves Armstrong out of where he's been performing, it's asking for trouble. He's quick on the counter and gives us an outlet, if Armstrong is out wide how much is he going to end up wasted in our own half tracking back? It suits him just staying up there. Dack simply doesn't have the pace, never mind after a serious injury. Also, we've watched Dack play false 9 and it was a disaster (Wigan & Preston Away). Maybe in this side it might work but based on the evidence, nah.
  4. Sorry but this worries me more than anything, he's tried this before and it absolutely killed our season off. We should not, under any circumstances be moving Armstrong into any other position.
  5. Bristol City got absolutely bullied today off Brum... We should go flying into them from the off. Nothing special, like most teams in this division.
  6. They were a bit like this under Dean Smith. I remember him complaining about the length of the grass at Ewood, salty prick.
  7. Wasn't listening to commentary but yeah, not surprised at all. Think people give them too much respect because they have a reputation for good football. Now they're pretty average and don't have their sh*t little ground, teams should get at them.
  8. Something about Brentford f*cks me off. Always seem to have an arrogance about them. Without the Watkins and Benrahma they aren't up to much. With 11 we'd have beat them.
  9. You think? When we beat Preston, which we totally dominated, he still managed to make feel like I can't trust him and almost dropped us in it twice. Every single game there's a calamitous error with him.
  10. Unreal result considering the circumstances. We would have won that today no thanks to Lennihan. Absolute liability. If he weren't captain he wouldn't be playing. Garbage.
  11. Lewis Holtby is a Rolls Royce of a player in this league. Mentally head and shoulders above anything I've seen this season. I've not seen a more effortless, classy display for some time from a Rovers midfielder. Dont think a Preston player could even smell him.
  12. Thinking of that Preston fan who said we'll "never do anything with that Dinosaur Mowbray in charge"... Alex Neils side were embarrassing. Looked like a league 2 side who we'd drawn in the cup.
  13. I dispair I really do. I went on a PNE forum on deadline day where they were discussing our transfer business, they were all p*ssed off. One poster chimed in and said "don't worry, they won't do anything with that dinosaur Mowbray in charge" Despite my elation, deep down, I knew he was right.
  14. What did he say??? Please don't tell me he expected them to "come at us" because that would confirm the fella has been scratching his arse, eating biscuits and telling the kids how good they are.
  15. Manager needs to take some shit for this. He didn't do his homework at all. This lot had 35% possession against Rotherham and won 3-0. They've just done EXACTLY the same thing to us. Have some f*ckin nous about you man. Bloody ameteur hour. Can't just high press every team, got to sit in sometimes and maintain shape. I don't know if it's arrogance, stupidity or both.
  16. Seen enough of him. Acts like a leader but doesn't play like one. This is an assessment of his past 2 years. AVERAGE at best. Chris Wilder can order him a taxi, he's another face along with Evans and Gallagher I could gladly not see again. Another ineffective try hard, long ball merchant with no ability. Take any money and run.
  17. To me, it just looks like he's focusing on taking a better first touch and playing more simple passes to get into the game. Last season it was almost like every touch he had was like he's trying to prove something and beat his man before he's even received the ball. If you don't have a good fist touch then you won't have a good 2nd. It also seems like he's learned to use and know his body and be comfortable with someone up his arse when receiving the ball. This season I'm seeing him control it whilst holding off a man, then if the space is there he'll attack it, if it's not he just finds feet. Sounds simple, which it is, he's just generally doing the basics better. Lad is big, quick, capable of finishing, now he's doing the simple things well, the his natural attributes are showing through... It also helps that everyone works their balls off and presses together...
  18. Lewis Holtby was unreal. Actually looked like a German international had turned up for a game. Class act.
  19. Ruthless from Mowbray. This is a must win game, as they all are from now on I suppose. Looking forward to seeing Trybul because he looked a class above anything when he came on against Watford, his passing range looked exceptional. Him and Holtby should be interesting to watch today. Shame Ayala is out because I would have liked to judge what the manager likely considers our strongest back 4. I'm expecting a solid win today. Anything less is just not acceptable from the players we have. Good to see Evans and Gallagher on the bench, hopefully I don't have to look at their faces today.
  20. Phil Jones left out of this seasons United squad... Possible pay out and return to Ewood?
