Options, I have options. You'll see my options soon, and when you do see my options, you will be like "All of those options are optional." You will keep asking me, "How do you have all of these optional options?" I can't answer you because it's optional. So the option is on the table to make Rovers Great Again, and we will make Rovers Great Again by winning so much, it will be optional for us to win so much. We could just win a little, but we want to win bigly to the big league. And that's how French Stewart will make Rovers Great Again!

Dreadful to think that we are probably going to throw away another few points. We have barely any attacking prowess

That was a crapshoot of a match. Barely any quality possession, okay defense, just seemed like we were playing their game of absolute chaos rather than our own.

That last minute goal was a killer for sure.

So we lost 1-0 unbelievable. Get ready for the 'Mowbray frustrated at lack of opportunities taken' for the 10th time 🙄

Cos we have some god given right to be better than other teams still?

When will people realise that we're no better than every other team around us and never have been.

Except for one goal at the end of the game a draw at a recently very much improved Oldham would have been acceptable. Whatever Ritchie Wellens has done to turn round a team that conceeded five against Rotherham well i would like a pint of it on Monday morning. Well done to him and he deserves his chance at managing Oldham.

Not sure where I've said that.... :shrug:

What I do expect is for us to be competitive in every game. Too many times already this season we've been second best, losing our individual battles and quite frankly not looking like giving a shit. It is this attitude that is pissing me off and this is where I lay the blame on TM. It is his responsibility to ensure this complacent/lazy mentality isn't in place.

We had a week off to prepare for this match and from what I've read and having spoken to my dad who was there, that display was totally unacceptable.

I hope to see a reaction on Tuesday night against bottom of the league...

To be honest I see that attitude in 99.9% of footballers I watch nowadays; probably why I don't watch it anymore.

How you expect a guy who probably earns in a year what the players earn in a month or two to be solely responsible for their motivation is beyond me. The players have to take their fair share of responsibility.

Exaggerated my point. Of course the players take some responsibility.

I use Dyche as an example of a manager however who would not put up with a lot of shit I've witnessed this season. To quote him "the minimum I expect is maximum effort". A lot of our lads have fallen short of that this season consistently, yet TM persists...this is the point I'm trying to make.
