    I hope he's backed with the funds to bring in cover for RB, CB and a replacement for Poveda. Would love a good striker to add to the mix and replace Armstrong but that's probably a step too far. Send Clarkson back and spin the wheel on a more useful loanee.

    But I hope he doesn't buy players to pursue his possession based football nonsense. We're doing just fine without it.

    We should be buying players better than we already have otherwise we are not progressing.  Cover players are not the answer.

    My big fear right now is the goalkeeping situation.  If Kaminski is going to miss a few games then I think Pears will cost us dearly - I don't think Pears should ever have been signed, not even on a 12 month deal never mind the ludicrous 4 year deal.

    Huge game today. When was the last time we actually beat a team above us/around the playoffs in the league? Maybe Brentford 1-0 at home a couple years back? 

    Such an opportunity to deliver a statement of intent by winning the game, rather then shutting up and trying to nick a draw. Come on Rovers!

    Agree.

    Time to sh1t or get off the pot.

  3. Great time to play Stoke.

    We are rolling and they have key absentees.

    Unbelievably generous odds on Rovers' win at almost 3/1 on one of the exchanges.  Lumped on and fully expect Rovers' cash machine to keep paying out!  Also stuck a tenner on 3-1 to Rovers at 40/1.  Fill yer boots.

    Wilder obviously has joined Boro today and Warnock implied that a deal had been rumbling on for a while so that guess is wrong. So I am suspecting that all of your money would be on a manager who you said was imminently about to become our manager a year ago!

    The only thing I would say to you is if someone is looking for a job that person does not put all their eggs in one basket!

    I will leave you to join up the dots!

    Well it’s only been 10yrs hasn’t it, let’s give them another 10 just to be sure, they deserve it.

    Come on Gav, get real.

    You and I both strongly agree that our owners are an issue.

    However, that does not change the persona, ambition, drive, tactical awareness, relationship with supporters etc of the manager who is in charge at any point in time.

    IMO, anyone who thinks Mowbray IS NOT an issue is a fool.

  6. Interesting stuff from @Paul Mani

    I think Rovers' executive management change their tune so often it's reminiscent of words/meaning to 'Hokey Cokey'.

    However, posted earlier this week that I thought even a win wouldn't save Mowbray and I stand by that.  Think that departures of Farke and Warnock (not saying either will replace Mowbray - my money is still on Neill or Wilder in that order) will help focus some minds at Ewood (need for change).

    Some bizarre selections and Mowbray needs a face saving win.  

    Can only be one outcome against an unconvincing Sheff Ud.

    Rovers' win at 11/4 - just full yer boots.

    Won a packet today on Rovers' win but would give the lot away for a guarantee of a new manager by the time Rovers play another league game.

    Feel today's win was inevitable but risk is could be yet another papering over the cracks / false dawn.

    I stand by this.

    Head on the block - doubt even a win on Saturday will be enough to save Mowbray.

    Sadly, I don't think he should ever have been appointed and, IMO, his departure will be at least four and a half years too late.

    To be fair to mercer i'd been told by that major changes are coming in the next few weeks but no one seemed sure what they are, that came from someone very close to the club

    I think he’s very close to walking…having conversations with staff about it as per the article.

    Also interesting that he’s not claiming the club to be his….”the players need to show X for their club” etc

    Dead man walking. No one is telling me anything different. Just a matter of time imo.

    Interesting to see comments from @PeteJD13 @Paul Mani

    In the main, totally bemused by Mowbray's attitude in today's press conference.  IMO, the attitude of a manager who knows he wont be in post for much longer.

    I think the next Rovers' manager, and sooner than some on here think, will be either Wilder or Neill with reports of both having attended recent Rovers' games.  I understand both have support in the Rovers' hierarchy and are not unknown to them!

    Buckley was excellent today according to fans at the game. 

    Good win today Mercer? 

    Feel sorry for Santa today

    Any win is a good win!

    Seems like we did our best though to surrender another 2 goal lead.

    Big, big test on Wednesday.  

    Think Santa's sack will soon start to fill up!

  11. Don't fancy us at all this afternoon.

    Derby on decent run of form and think Rooney has done well under very difficult circumstances.

    Buckley at right back - think the lad will wonder wtf is going on this afternoon.  Mentally and physically in for a very hard time.

    Derby at almost 2/1 is a licence to print Christmas money - fill yer boots in readiness for Santa.

    This chat about the 3 games in 7/8 days is making me chuckle, keep it up!

    It's not rocket science.

    If football had no close season and Rovers played every Wednesday and Saturday they would play 104 games in a year which is TWO PER WEEK.

    I think too many blinded by Mowbray's bullsh1t.

     

  13. From the Raos' personal angle, a smart move.

    Gives them more control over a major asset in the event of the football club being sold or entering insolvency.

    If the football club ceased to exist or the remainder of the Brockhall complex was sold off then I think you would find any restrictive covenants re land use would be managed out!

    As a Rovers' supporter, would have been far happier if this had not happened.  Let's not be naive about this.  Again, don't think club have been open about Brockhall and their hand has reluctantly been forced.

    Think it's a pity the Raos are not as smart when it comes to selecting football managers and ceos!!!

  14. Think Big Mick has had his day and now well past his best and not for us.

    Surprised to see Bruce's name mentioned on here - wouldn't be my choice and I don't think he would have even the slightest inclination to give us a second's thought.  Think his hunger has gone for this type of appointment and probably too busy watching the interest rack up on his £millions.

    I think the next Rovers' manager, and sooner than some on here think, will be either Wilder or Neill with reports of both having attended recent Rovers' games.  I understand both have support in the Rovers' hierarchy and are not unknown to them!

    Was just thinking, I’ve never seen such mediocrity.  We really have enough to be too 6…because no other side is that good either. 

    Too true.

    A half decent manager would make us genuine contenders.

    What's happening with Rothwell is criminal.  Liked him from day one but feel Mogadon has held him back.  If he goes to Rangers, he will rip up the SPL.

    well you`re doing better than me,i had blackpool/preston as a nailed on draw😔

    Wouldn't bet against Blackpool at home against any team outside the top 8 - Critchley doing an amazing job there.

    Just keeping fingers crossed for both Rovers and Reading to net once each in remainder of game. 3-1 at 16/1 would be a nice earner on top of Rovers' win bet.
