Mowbray over and out

Mowbray over and out
A not entirely surprising turn of events last week saw former Albion manager Tony Mowbray getting the boot from Scottish Premier League's other side, Celtic.

A poor showing this season was topped off by a humiliating 4-0 defeat to St Mirren last Wednesday night, but really, it was clear from the start that Mowbray was not of the right calibre for such an appointment.

His commitment to playing free flowing football of high artistic merit had already been exposed as a myth during his single season as a Premiership manager with WBA. We were relegated in a relatively straightforward manner.

I had forgotten about the dour, uninspiring and spiritless post-match interviews that used to round off every Saturday night.

Another defeat, another blameless performance.

Even when we recorded a victory Mowbray would sum up the result as neither positive or negative. I cringe when I hear Roberto Di Matteo do the same thing.

Well, Celtic have had enough and look to the complete rookie Neil Lennon do to a better job. Good luck to him, and good luck to Mowbray. But let's make sure that we don't repeat the mistakes of the past.

On Wednesday night Mowbray had six forwards on the field by the end of the game and St Mirren attackers were breezing through a barren midfield and lining up to shoot. We've seen RDM try a similar tactic at West Brom and sometimes I wonder if we have moved on at all.

I hope that Robbo can prove that we have.
