  1. Did we not learn anything from Tuesday night Tony? 🤨
  2. It isn't harsh at all and I'm sure they were good for that but they have an opportunity during their day job to get the majority fan feeling across to the management team and that isn't happening time after time. I've seen enough to know some very obvious and uncomfortable questions are avoided.
  3. These wet behind the ear local "journalists" aren't helping. So may questions that could be asked. If they did their job properly they'd be feeling extremely uncomfortable in each press conference. The last thing you need with a management team like this is a bunch of messenger boys.
  4. Hate to say I told you so. My opinions on this club are strong, pessimistic and entirely accurate. It is all too predictable. Today we've spent money for the first time all summer, on a left back. Let that sink in. How does this club put a strategy together for promotion out of this league and execute it? Is it a 15 year plan? The board and manager have to go.
  5. Are we the only club in England that photographs loan players with a pen in their hand? Is that the norm? I feel like the club is trying to imitate the feeling of a permanent signing for our benefit. 😂 Just get some players to actually sign some worthwhile contracts at the club and stop trying to trick the Facebook fanbase into thinking the ink at Ewood does get used 🤣
  6. or the owners and management start running the club properly.
  7. This is working out perfectly to say: "We tried everything we could" - Blackburn Rovers, September 1, 2021
  8. All of this would be fine if we combined it with some shrewd permanent signings in the (300k - 900k range). I doubt any Rovers fans are expecting millions to be spent but just a handful of signings to show that the club is still active and investing in it's own future would be nice... I'm presuming Mowbray didn't expect to be in a job this summer and the transfer activity does have a look of that.
  9. I can bet you he didn't have an injury in those two months.
  10. I'll go back to this. The rest of the fanbase (Facebook) need to realise the depth of damage caused by managerial and ownership shortcomings. I'm not saying Obafemi was the answer but the reality is it's going to be difficult to attract good players to the club.
  11. This summer should have started by sacking the manager and making the club a more attractive proposition. I do not see Obafemi joining, or anyone on a permanent basis that has options elsewhere. Give this 3 months and all the fans will have turned.
  12. A signed agreement between the two clubs... surely?
  13. No doubt about it, any passionate owners would have been there to show their delight. They aren't interested and do the bare minimum needed.
  14. Perhaps we can point 800,000 Chileans in the direction of Venky's
  15. Yet the local press do nothing but cover non story transfer possibilities and how a sale of the unsellable Phil Jones will affect us. We have absolutely no voice.
  16. The majority of fans still defending the club or Mowbray also appear illiterate. Interesting correlation.
  17. In Out Brad Lyons Charlie Mulgrew Amari'i Bell Elliott Bennett Corry Evans Stewart Downing Derrick Williams Lewis Holtby Tom Trybull Harvey Elliott Jarrad Branthwaite Taylor Harwood-Bellis ... I'd want to meet with the CEO too.
  18. Pleased to miss out on Reach. Not pleased with the lack of forward thinking and activity from the club.
  19. Fully understand why patience is running out for many, although it's far too early (and unreasonable) to judge a new signing. Either way we've taken a massive step back from last year and have the same manager that failed to get the best out of a much stronger squad. That in fact feels like a massive understatement, the results were totally abysmal and it wasn't normal for it not to result in a sacking. Still can't quite believe Mowbray is here. Will the club allow a run like last season to happen again? Is that the new standard? I don't see any reason why it won't happen again. You won't see anything like it at another club at this level (or at least shouldn't); a manager speaking in interviews in the manner he was - leaving pundits lost for words and still retaining his job. It's not something any fan should have patience for. What we saw last season were media professionals left uncomfortable by a brief encounter with a dysfunctional football club and we've had to put up with it for 11 years now. Let's see how the season goes but personally I don't see a way back for the club, or myself as a fan anytime soon. I'd love to support Rovers kids and a good manager, under passionate ownership but too many things are misaligned as it stands. The fans are out there and will bring revenue through the door but things have to be done to the standard set throughout our history. That should be the minimum and it isn’t happening. A statement from the owners would be nice. When did the fans last hear from them? The silence and disconnect they've created wouldn't be acceptable in any other walks of life. Why is it OK here? Life, love and excellence needs bringing back to Rovers. I don't see Mowbray, Venus or Waggott bringing that and it isn't Pickering's fault. My message to fans still inside Ewood this season would be to take it out on the owners and management, not the players.
  20. The reality is if we did have a decent manager... they would walk away.
  21. The point is we failed to get our best player tied down to a long term contract and the cost of that is going to be significantly more than an extra 5 - 10k a week. We're a badly run business.
  22. I won't blame it on Mowbray or Waggot this time, as there are clearly people above them preventing fundamental footballing decisions from happening and with that any real progression of the football club. Armstrong should have been offered a much better deal last summer, after scoring some standout goals. That would have been a priority at any well-run club. Fast forward 12 months... This will keep on happening and it all circles back to one thing: A neglected secondary business ran from a galaxy far far away.
