Sounded like it was a pretty good goal, to be fair.

We haven't got a decent shot on-goal yet, either

I'm actually quite happy with that, Burton would've been expecting a win from that and we were the better team for most of the game.

Not the bang-up debut I expected, guys. But I take a point. We need points, however we get them.

I guess we have to get 3 pts in Mowbray's home debut.

I know it doesn't mean much and it's against Burton, but BBC says we had 72% possession, which is strange as usually it's unheard of for us to get a above 50% :yeahright:

Ok I just checked we did sometimes get over 50% under Coyle but this is certainly a change

When the ball hit both posts and didn't cross the line will that be the defining moment of the season. It would have been a tough pill to swallow if that had gone in but having possession of the ball 72 percent means nothing if they had three shots on target to Rovers two. Anyway we live to fight another day. Lets hope today Newcastle and Forest can do us a favour by beating Bristol and Wigan.

Probably something we'll see under Mowbray... He prefers a much prettier game of football to our recent managers

Bristol city are now making our game yesterday as 2 points dropped. Need a great Newcastle comeback 2nd half.

If you change 'Nitrogen' to 'Blackburn Rovers possession under Tony Mowbray' it'll be close enough :D
