The thing I'd say about Sporar is that he clearly wants through balls, and we don't really do it that much.  We didn't under the last manager, and we don't under the current one.  Unfortunately our transfer activity in the summer was an absolute mess, and I still remain to be convinced that this is going to improve at all.

So far he is a below average championship striker on top end championship striker wages.

Negativity on here is terrible. Playing 2nd place in the division away from home. A tough stop start game. Missed a couple of really good chances which on another day could have won us the game. They

We've missed some golden late chances and not been at our best - but why there is so much negativity on here is beyond me. We're on a great run and playing an away fixture against an extremely tough s

Disappointing result and performance, but nights like last night are standard in the Championship - even for promotion candidates. Even during our promotion under Karanka we had many of these types of

maybe so, cos I certainly wouldn't describe him as looking passionate on the pitch! his movement is decent tbf, but what good is movement if you stand on the ball when it comes to you

There goal was a quick opportunist shot which snook through which is all it takes. There is no need to be blasting balls because we all know they lift as we prove time and time again. Work the keeper.

negativity cos we just played pretty badly in a fairly huge game... I'd say it's understandable. were you expecting everyone to be full of praise?

People saying the season's over and wanting to get rid of key players because we lost

It's a joke mate

Nobody is saying the season is over but the top 2 is realistically out of reach now, the play offs have to be our aim but we’ve been very poor in the last 2 if we’re honest

Blackburn actually have pretty good support when you consider they are a fairly small town, they share catchment areas with lots of other Lancashire clubs and they are a short drive from Liverpool and Manchester where you have 4 giant Premier league clubs. 

I don't think we're any better supported to be honest.

People are always going to overreact after a defeat but there is certainly nothing wrong with being critical.

The vast majority recognise that tonight was never make or break either way but to say we couldn't make some changes for the better would be looking at things with the good old rose tinted glasses.

100% he's obviously not dogshit, but he's certainly not someone we should be spunking £8m on - unless something changes massively in the 2nd half of the season

People had got carried away by all our wins.  My expectation at the start of the season was mid table (10-16ish). We are flirting with the edge of the playoffs.  Blackburn are a bogey team for us and they have been in really good form. Very few teams will win at Ewood Park this season. The ref didn't help, though...

If you just watched that midfield for 90 minutes and thought yep that looks great don't need to change anything there then I don't really know what to say.

Tonight was a great time to play Blackburn, they were missing their star striker and a couple of other players. The season isn't over but that's a great opportunity wasted. 

Mowbray did a job on Wilder tonight.

LWB is definitely a position we need to sort out, I just worry that we've already covered that by signing Taylor... he's a great player to have brought in to solve the injuries we had, but he's just not attacking enough to be enough of a threat going forward.

We're becoming very easy to play against cos it all basically goes down the right hand side.

Hopefully this new Australian can step into LWB.. I'm not convince Bola is particularly brilliant either tbh.

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
