    Does Mowbray want to go up??

    After watching the last few games and seeing the team selections I am wondering if Mowbray really wants to achieve promotion this season??,or is it that Jeremy Peace is behind all the inactivity? we could have done with bringing in one or two players just to freshen up the squad and bring in new ideas because most of the time recently we haven't looked like having a clue!,Ellington has been his usual self....playing like a donkey,Koumas and Kamara only seem to be playing in short bursts and then disappearing on the pitch,Gera is not getting a look in,he should be in the middle of the midfield...THAT'S where he plays and scores frequently for Hungary!!,I'd give McDonald a run alongside Phillips as Kev thrives on playing alongside a big centre forward....and he doesn't fall over the ball like Ellington! In summary I reckon we haven't improved at all by getting rid of Robson and replacing him with what looks like an identically thinking clone in Mowbray,it's time for Peace to go and bring back MEGSON!!!

    • I agree that Megson returning would be a good move. This will only happen if Peace sells the club to a more positive individual. Peace wanted a smaller squad and now we are paying the price. When we got promoted with Megson we had a Squad of 33 we now have a squad of 22!!!! The majority of these being simple mercanaries. Mowbray and Venus are out of their depth. Mowbray,s team selections are weird. The club has moved backward with Mowbray at the helm. You only come out of this league if you are willing to battle and are solid in defence. Our defence is the worst for five years. Its okay playing attacking football if you dont concede goals as cheaply as we do. The laid back attitude of the players comes from the management. Venus was quoted in the papers as saying that it did not matter if we won or lost the games over easter!!!!If these games were of no importance will Peace give me a refund of 2 games on my season ticket?????Mowbray said that he did not critice the players at half time against Stoke because there was no point!!! Once again am i entitled to a refund!!!!

    • second rate chairman in charge of a second rate club....You've got it in one.

    • even if we do make it to prem we need a bigkick up the #$%$ to stay up there

    • Well his hands were TIED by the very poor Chairman, who has NOT helped any of his LAST THREE managers in the january window, it is SADLY obvious we have a small squad, and will be even smaller when the 'best 4' will leave in the summer as there is NO way we going to get promotion let alone manage to stay in the playoffs playing such #$%$ soccer
      the players win LOSE or draw still pick up there 10 grand or MORE regardless of result, and how many of them looked upset after the whistle friday night ? Mowbray was perhaps the ONLY guy who WOULD come to us after the very LATE sacking of robson who shouldve gone in the summer, then we wouldnt have signed his drinking buddy Hartson, anyway fans we can LOOK forward to another year(s) in the old 2nd division what is so called the championship where prety passing football gets u NOWHERE ...time to give the youngsters a break before unveiling them as first XI next season

    • Maybe YOU should replace him since you know so much...bring back Megson...you got to be #$%$ me...

      • Sorry if I've upset you but I say as I see and also reflect the views of all the other season ticket holders that I sit next to at every game,when was the last time you were here or saw a game?

      • I think Peace should go, thats why we don't get the players of any repute. We haven't won any players against the likes of Birmingham because he won't pay the wages.

        Melton is good but I don't know what has happened over the past 8 matches. The problem seems to be more with the players playing for pay not playing for Albion and now they're getting depressed because it looks like they won't be on prem pay next year.
