    Dropping players

    If most of the fans on forums had their way, we'd drop players after a single poor performance every time.. these are the same people that moan about line up changes..

    Can u make any sense of that..?

    My personal favourite moan is ....
    Rovers should be in the play offs because they have a good enough squad. So sack the manager because we aren't in the play offs. Mowbray is clueless.

    When you ask them who built this decrht side, its met with deathly silence.

    Another favourite is everytime we lose, Gallagher and Breretons transfer fee is brought up. But strangely, when Armstrong scores the winner the 1.75m spent on him doesn't get a mention.

    Totally agree.
    One of the problems is that on a lot of sites, you can only be a "honking Mowbray-lover" or a "Mowbray-hater".
    Actually talking about the balance between what he's got right and what he's got wrong seems to be quite rare.
    And, as you both suggest, it even extends into the games - especially for those who want to dump TM.
    If the opposition hits the post, "...we were lucky to get away with it..."
    If WE hit the post, it was "...poor shooting..."!

    And we hit bar or post in each of our last 3 home games, which would have been winners in each.. fine margins.
