Need a new experienced manager now to allow him to sort out the rubbish before next season. To be fair Venkys have supported the present regime and allowed them to get on with it, but have failed and must be replaced now.

The owners have no idea how to run a football club. The only decent thing they can do is clear off and give the running of a football club to those that know how to run a football club. Failing that, just give their money to somebody that has some idea what to do and keep well away from any hands on approach.

Exactly! They have no idea what they are doing. With the money they have wasted over the last three years they could have bought a few star players. Or one decent manager.

Liam Feeney makes his second appearance for rovers off the bench. Meanwhile in Spain.....Ruben Rochina scores the winner for Rayo Vallecano. Now I know Rochina wasn't the most consistent. But you would have to have a serious mental deficiency or be Gary Bowyer to pick Feeney over Rochina.

The time to sort this out is in summer the board or the ones who know something about football should realise by now they need a proper manager in charge maybe Malkey Mckay would be a decent choice but Glen Hoddle would be my choice but of course neither would want to join us.
