Mogga...the discussion!

Recommended Posts

I am only doing this thread because the subject is being brought to the fore at an alarming rate of late and though a recent thread was closed because of personal attacks there is no doubt this subject is on a lot of members minds.

 

So without getting too hostile at each other lets discuss the issue and try to keep objective without name calling.

 

There is something very wrong at the moment is Moggas job on the line?

 

Please feel free to pm me if anyone has serious objections to this

Not just yet, although fans are losing faith. The next 6 games (at the very, very most) are absolutely vital, not in Gibbo's eyes but in the fans eyes.

Well tend to agree with you Ross and think you are correct about your comment about Gibson because I am certain that Mogga has all the attributes he wants.

 

But does he have the attributes to take us further?

Instead of a few days, I have made it a few hours of down time :P

 

I'd say a lot of managers jobs would be on the line if their team had lost 5 in a row. As much as it pains me to say, I think he may have taken us as far as he can.

 

It may not seem like it but I am a fan of Mowbray and appreciate what he has done for us BUT sometimes there comes a time when you just have to hold your hands up and say "yep, that's that, that's all I can do". I think that time is fast approaching.

 

The only question is, does Mowbray admit it now or cling onto the hope that he can turn it around?

 

If we're talking about new managers, we can realistically only hope for an unemployed fellow (Adkins?) or get a caretaker in until the end of the season (Proctor?) and then look at someone who is employed (Di Canio?).

We're a fickle bunch, no doubts - if we win the next 6 we'd have just put this as the standard mid season blip and I doubt many would want his head, however - we lose them and there's a huge fundamental mistake somewhere in the club. So it's tricky.

If we lose to Leeds his job must be on the line.

 

After Tuesday we could be out if the top 6 plus with a manager like Nigel Adkins available gibbo must be thinking about making changes

I think his tactical decisions or lack of them have not made things easy for him and this is a concern

Some fans need to remember all of the good work Mowbray has done behind the scenes with cutting the wage bill, singing good players for cheap and bringing young players through. I've still got faith in him.

You are not wrong and he has done some great work but is this all we want for the future and are we going to be happy as the perenial mid table team?

 

Its what goes on on the pitch that counts and well of late the answer to that is zip!

to be fair, we aren't a mid table team and haven't been all year (apart from the first couple of games obvs!). we've been consistently in the top 6 (and still are).

Again you are not wrong but only for the grace of god go I!

 

We are slipping we all know that and the example I gave was simply that are we progressing? not at the moment!

 

This is going to be a very tricky subject to discuss because of the high esteem we all hold Mogga in but the question is there and more and more fans are asking it!


Mogga's take on today not really inspiring to be honest

i would rather give suggestions on the things fans dont want to see in next match

1./ R Williams should be dropped

2./ Josh and Reach should be on the pitch

In short for me; Because of the good work he has done, he deserves a chance to turn things back around. But he needs to sort this *** out, sharpish.

    • If the manager talks about bad attitude and getting rid, then that destroys any bargaining position and lowers any potential fee further. It's amateur to do that, not to talk up a player. Additionally if we can't offload and needed him to be available for the team then best to have him onside in that eventuality. Remember the euro transfer window is open much longer than the championship one, so we could have potentially had him on the books for the first few weeks of the season and still be paying him during that time.
    • 5 million in, toxic attitude out and 50k off the wage bill.. it’s a no brainer. Don’t really like Woody setting himself up to fail tho.. Defending MB and saying he wants to stay.. why do it? And why is the press officer letting those quotes go out? It’s so amateur.
    • He's the biggest shareholder in Barnsley so he couldn't actually buy us without selling his stake in them.  I like your out of the box thinking though, as always 👍
    • It's probably worth remembering that we signed Braithwaite as a Championship club.  I think jamesp is about right in what he has said really.  We signed a player for £9m and whatever he gets paid per week as a Championship club.  You can talk about parachute payments if you like but it doesn't change the fact that we're taking a hit on him after taking a hit on Flint.  It's the right thing to do but it's still *** poor on the part of the club.
