  1. Really enjoyable game. The players’ work rate was amazing and we more than matched the probable Champions today. Some great interplay at times and I don’t think anyone had a poor game although Buckley might be frustrated with his performance. Lenihan and H-B were outstanding again with Kaminski making 3 crucial saves. For once I agree with Talksport in that Tony Mowbray’s subs were well timed and helped see the game out although we might have snatched it at the end with Rothwell.
  2. That’s a great story. I too trade in Bitcoin and the returns at the moment are amazing although I agree it is high risk. It eclipses by far from what you get betting on footy or horses. The current price for 1 Bitcoin is £36,000 as of a few minutes ago! So I’m wondering what crypto coins your friend has got?! He’ll be able to buy out Venky’s; own the club, relay the pitch and dish out free season tickets if he’s got Bitcoin!
  3. We even got our own game report in the Times this morning. I quote: “Reports from India say that Venky’s, the Rovers owners are displeased with the situation but a change of manager is not thought to be imminent.” First time I’ve read about Venky’s “concern” but no explanation as to these “reports”. What will not help the fans’ mood is what Mowbray said next “ We move on to the next game and hope our luck changes”. I can’t believe we’ve gone from play off contention to a relegation scrap in a few short weeks. The parallel with Hull is very worrying.
  4. Really interesting thread Rover99 and one I’ve been thinking about for some time. I recall Gary Bowyer getting criticised as he supposedly had a top 6 squad but failed to get them there. I think there are 3 elements to this question. Firstly, if you believe in the top 6 statement then it seems to me that Tony Mowbray deserves credit for assembling the squad. Secondly, the fact that we have not been a top 6 club this season is a big negative against the manager and he faces criticism for his tactics, team selections etc. as supporters claim we are underperforming. Like someone co
  5. I agree with what you are saying about Jack Walker and the town and how much pride we all felt in the Golden 90’s but two thoughts spring to mind. Firstly, the Walker family were not slow themselves in undermining his legacy by selling the club to Venky’s and secondly, if we are £196 million in debt then perhaps a chance for our owners to make £50/60 million by selling some part of the Brockhall facility to maintain our very existence as a football club should at least be considered as long as it doesn’t impact massively on the playing side.
  6. You are rather prone to exaggeration. I don’t really take any notice of what you say. It doesn’t make any sense.
  7. I thank you for your response. I was not aware that titles of threads could be changed. I did not find it funny especially after a defeat and I didn’t expect the reaction my post has caused. I’m clearly out of tune with the majority on here so I had better exit stage left!
  8. What gives you the right to change the title of the thread? You are setting a precedent surely? I’m pretty sure this was not how Lee Grooby and his friends envisaged how this message board would develop when it was started in 1996. You have overstepped your role and I feel that what you’ve done is out of order.
  9. I’m not sure which is worse watching us lose today, reading some very childish posts on here or watching the Rugby. It’s been a horrible day!
  10. I think the fact that Messrs Guardiola, Klopp and Ancellotti are happy to send their promising students to Tony Mowbray and his coaching team shows highly thought of they are within the game. I’m sure they could have sent them anywhere but they know they will be well coached and managed whilst they’re here.
  11. Does this mean that Branthwaite has picked up an injury from Saturday’s game so we’ve gone in for the City lad? I’m a little confused as to why we’ve got 2 youngsters on loan at CB but maybe I’m missing something.
  12. Of course it worked! We have a very strong bench and he used it to it’s full capacity as even their manager conceded. You use the word desparate others might call it tactical. Historically I’m wondering if it’s the first time in our long and distinguished membership of the Football League that we have used 4 subs in a competitive game, other than friendlies?
  13. In your opinion obviously. Poor bloke seems to get as much criticism after victories than he does defeats! I’m genuinely interested in which players know he’s “winging it?” Do you have evidence of this or is it another example of your personal bias?
  14. Like any game of 90 minutes there are periods of excitement, periods of frustration and periods of mind numbing boredom. The 3 points today are massive and keep us in the hunt for a playoff place. There are about 12 teams who will still be hoping and we can be one of them. Our subs bench now is so strong. I saw a caption in the Norwich-Boro game that we’ve got most goals from our subs bench in the league. I think some posters just thrive in being over critical; let’s just enjoy these wins.
