Amazing that, innit? Its almost like its the players on the pitch not the manager...
The LT has the same muppets but from the other perspective. Every individual error is Mowbray’s fault and wouldn’t happen for any other manager in the football league.

Dolan off Rothwell on. Wasted sub. Team should have started like that.

This ref gave something against Trybull? At any rate, Evans on

Is Elliott the best player on the pitch for either side?

Williams off injured. Wharton.

Hopefully the wasted sub doesn't come back to haunt us.

we haven’t had a shot the whole half. Dismal

On the other hand, we’re a scrappy bunch defending.

I can’t wait to read comments, if Pears keeps a clean-sheet, lol

Good point all things considered. By far the most pressure we've been under all season and defended really well.

A point! And fairly won!!!

I don’t know about anybody else, y’all know a lot more than I do, but a point today, with 12 1st teamers out, & Warnock building an attack aimed at the GK he didn’t need, is very gratifying, indeed.

I take it...gratefully.

We absolutely got dominated that whole match, had one really good chance gone begging, but otherwise defense kept us in the match. Pears did well in his 3rd consecutive match, looked more confident. Really don't have any other takeaways because I felt like we just had nothing to offer other than a couple passes then a giveaway. 5 yellow cards, 20 fouls committed shows you the type of match we changed to.

Shithouse extraordinaires.

Can we give any kudos to Mowbray on this one?
I will, we were missing 12 guys- 7 starters- and we still got a point against a top-5 side. Well done, Tony & lads.

Well with half the first team missing he can only do so much. Boro looked very good. We needed to defend better and we did so can't complain too much.

Not a bad team that, especially if you put the unfit Downing on the bench.

Absolutely.

Guys, I could be totally wrong, but I believe today is the start of Rovers climbing back in this thing. We will see guys coming back now, good ones, at that.

We have QPR next at Ewood, anything can happen. But today was a hard-fought point, vs a top-5 side. Gratifying.
