Tony in September 2016 after leaving Coventry wrote:You can't build a club off loans.

Well, at least there shouldn't be any reason for the fans to immediately hate him.

Did not see that coming.... at all. Initially very underwhelmed then I read his wikipedia entry and read this passage from his Middlesborough managing days.
"Mowbray guided Boro to Championship safety,having joined the club when they were 22nd in the league. The club finished the season well, winning their last four league games and finished 12th in the league table. The same season, Mowbray started giving youngsters a first team place such as Joe Bennett, Luke Williams and Richard Smallwood. Mowbray also start giving Marvin Emnes more playing after returning on loan from Swansea City and start scoring goals."

Sound familiar to anyone?

If he brings in our youngsters and plays Emnes, who knows!

Fingers crossed for Friday, lets hope for the new manager bump.

I think he took the hardest possible job available...keeping this club up, with the available personnel & fiduciary resources. I can't see him lasting 18 months.

We'll see how it goes, not that we can do anything else anyway.

Well at least they had someone lined up. Mowbray is okay and would probably have felt like a better choice than Coyle first time round.

Best of luck to him.

Best of luck to him. Got my full support. Let's beat Burton and start to turn things around. Come on Rovers.

To be honest I personally think he just needs to sharpen us up defensively and we should be fine.

Not the same expectations, or history. In spite of the clubs recent woes, yeah, Blackburn Rovers are still a big deal.

Now, to talk about David Lowe & David Dunn...

I assume Mowbray had no say in the matter. Keeping them around, as they know they existing talent, or because they are already being paid (cheaper that way), or both? Any other possible reasons?
