  1. The thought that's kept going through my mind this weekend is that, if Quality Control in the main part of our owners' 'Empire' is as abysmal as it is in our part, thank goodness I don't eat their chickens!
  2. I'd been shouting for Pearson for weeks now - long before Bristol City recruited him. Now that he's unavailable, how about the latest Rovers' Old Boy to actually win - scuse me for splitting an infinitive! - win something? And with apologies to anyone north of Hadrian's Wall: it may only be Scotland; it may only be their League Cup; but could we do worse than Callum Davidson? I can't remember Alec Neil actually winning that much - I may have forgotten; I've been on a cheaper Red tonight than I'm sure Mercer would ever consume! - before he rocked up at Deepdale.
  3. How's a 1-1 draw the "worst possible outcome"? Wouldn't a 1-0 defeat be worse than that? Or losing 2-1? And so on, ad infinitum.
  4. It's only now - 1.00 pm on Thursday - that I feel strong enough to read through this thread. I totally agree with your first paragraph, Pirate; you sum up exactly how I feel. The phrase I've used in conversations with friends to sum up how I feel these days about the club I've been following forever is "that I feel divorced from them." I don't 'do' iFollow - far too technical for this old fogey! - and I must confess that, for the first time since probably the Jim Iley era, I completely forgot that we were playing last night. I'm bemused by what's going on at Ewood and, behind th
  5. To do what? See if he can get us into the relegation zone???
  6. Yes; but will they be: 1] polite; and 2] about how following a team he manages drives you to drink? Well, that's my excuse, anyway!😉
  7. Possibly the saddest post I've read on here in some time.
  8. Hope you'll accept an amendment to your post, Exiled_Rover.
  9. If they haven't already, why don't they whack a bid in for Chorley's groundsman??
  10. And you forgot about The Dingles crabbing a win against MK Dons, tony!😉
  11. Totally agree with you, bazza. He's hard, yet intelligent and above all a man who doesn't suffer fools gladly; that's a mixture that, imo, we need behind the manager's desk. Additionally, although he's a few months older than Mowbray, his image is of a man who isn't dictated to by events. I can't imagine him signing his mates' lads, for example. See this from the Smoggie-land evening paper: https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/eric-paylor-nigel-pearson-mans-9611087 Admittedly, it's almost 6 seasons old; but I wouldn't look beyond him in the search for the manage
  12. What I find difficult to comprehend is, if BFS was sacked within 48 hours of the notorious defeat to MUFC, why displays like today's - and goodness knows there have been enough of them - haven't provoked a similar reaction by our owners towards Mowbray? Do they not realise that their 'investment' is depreciating with every game like today's? I know that nobody's allowed in to watch a 'live' game at the moment; but, really, displays like today's provide no incentive for fans to return to fortnightly attendance at Ewood once the All-Clear in the war against Covid19 has sounded.
  13. Simplistic comments like this are REALLY annoying. That may be what the history books show in years to come; but to put it on here as a point of comparison with our performance and result today is cheap. The full facts are that Derby County, whose squad was decimated by Covid19 and played their youth squad at Chorley, lost that game. There can be no comparison between the result at Chorley and the unmotivated performance that the 10 players in blue and white and a Reserve goalkeeper put on this afternoon. If it sent Mowbray to sleep - as it appeared to - then that surely shows h
