Berg insists it is a fresh start for all at Blackburn Rovers

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

HENNING Berg insists the entire Blackburn Rovers squad has been handed a “fresh start” after his managerial reign began in a comprehensive defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

A 2-0 loss at Selhurst Park saw Rovers slip to their first away defeat of the season but, as Berg looks to stamp his mark on the club, hope was handed to some of Ewood’s forgotten man.

Teenage right back Adam Henley impressed after being handed his first appearance of the season, starting in place of Bradley Orr, while Simon Vukcevic made an encouraging second half cameo in his first league outing of the campaign.

And, as boss Berg looks to improve all over the pitch, the Norwegian has promised everyone in Rovers’ large squad will get their chance to stake their claim.

He said: “It is a fresh start for everyone in the squad definitely. I don’t know ev-eryone 100 per cent at the minute. I know those who have played lately better than the other ones.

“We do have some injuries as well.

“I thought players did well when they came on, I thought Adam Henley did very, very well.

“It was a tough game but I thought he handled himself very well.

“We don’t think too much about January.

“Our main focus is improving the squad and the team that is here.

“It is a good squad and there is room for a lot of improvements and we will do that. I have seen this team play so much better.“Hopefully Saturday’s performance was a one off.”

A goal in each half from Glenn Murray was enough to give Crystal Palace, who unveiled Ian Holloway as their new boss at half time, a resounding victory.

And there was no hiding from a below par display by Berg, who admitted Rovers have to be better in virtually every department.

He said: “It was not the performance or the result we would have liked.

“Sometimes you can lose games and play well, sometimes you can win games and not play well. We did neither.

“We had a bad performance. I think we can do much better than this.

“I have seen the team much better than this.

“We played against a good Crystal Palace side but we expect to be better offensively and we expect to be better defensively.

“We were lacking as a team. We could be more compact defensively, quicker to the ball and we should have used the ball better ourselves.

“Palace deserved the win, there is no doubt about that. Overall in terms of the defensive play, especially in midfield and up front, it was not as it should be. Our offensive play can also be much better.”

Saturday was too soon to make any judgement on HB's performance in influencing the team and its tactics. Although I do think he was badly advised on bring back Murphy.
Tomorrow's game is when we can start judging him. He will have had time to get his points across to the team and his training staff. Let us hope for a btter outcome than Saturday.

GET INTO EM!!!!

Refreshing honesty; I wouldn't be surprised if it takes around 6 weeks before we see any signs of improvement, he needs time to implement his ideas and time to clean up the mess that SK left, I just hope the "boo-boys" don't get on his back and start causing a hostile environment for the players too soon. Good Luck

He will have to work within the financial constraints and that might mean he needs to be creative in January. If that happens it won't make him a stooge. Only if he tolerates interference on team selection and other nonsense would he become a 'yes' man.

If he's a good enough manager he will be able to make Rovers compete for a top 6 spot with their current squad plus maybe a couple of loans.

Thankfully he has obviously seen some of our recent performances and Orr was finally dropped. Lets hope he has been checking on a few other players aswell and more changes are made as we need 3 points tomorrow to stay in the hunt and then another 3 on Saturday will do very nicely indeed.

If Adam Hanley is good, then we have few more acadamy players are so good and good for the club businee in first team game experiance.

Rochina is so inconsistant, we cannot get a good striker from him like Suarez. still need some quality forward/Midfeild player who can trun around the game.

Wow, someone has noticed we should be quicker to the ball. Thats right, all this squad needs is to be able to close down a lot quicker and it would be a completely differnt ball game. So all we have to do is dispense with the slugs and their snail trails and get everyone fitter and sharper. Murphys days are numbered then. Shape up or ship out. Slug pellets at the ready.
Don't sprinkle them everywhere though smell the coffee is liable to explode into a jellied mass of goo

He has plenty of scope to sort out the wheat from the chaff. Even if he gets nothing for them he can get rid of a lot from the wages bill.

One of the keys is whether Berg is going to have to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Certain players are either in a dip of form or - worse still - have gone past their best and are in steady decline. I'd put Pederson and Murphy in one of these categories and if I stick my neck out it has to be the latter. We lack so much pace in midfield it isn't true and I am so frustrated that we continue to play Rhodes up front on his own. "Feed the Yak and he will score" used to be the shout. Well this guy is no different but we have to play to his strengths. To not do so is madness especially when we paid £8M for him. His appetite and confidence will fade too if we don't help him achieve his potential. Come on Henning; I know its early days but this side needs an urgent injection of confidence, steel, passion and pace or there'll be more results like Saturday with attendant consequences.

Henning we hope that does not mean what a lot of people are thinking you only got the job if you were going to keep particularly Hendry in a job, did Shebby the Sikkh tell you that you had to keep the same coaching staff, and they did not want the expense of replacing Keans drinking pals .
A fresh start for all the playing staff ,yes, Black, perhaps may not be the same overwhelming anger for Black that there is for the pension robber and woman beater HENDRY , who in fact seems to be as much use at Rovers as a chocolate teapot .
,Henning your the manager ! you were a top defender you won 10 times more trophies than Hendry ,so why do you need the expense of paying for a so called "specialist defensive coach"?
Hendry said the Black ticks all the right boxes for manager of Rovers ,of course he said that about Kean as well , no doubt Hendry now thinks Berg ticks all the right boxes, I suppose Hendry will say the Spice Girls tick all the right boxes as long as Hendry keeps receiving his fat pay cheques from Rovers
Hendry`s comments that the "the majority of Rovers supporters are fully behind Steve Kean, of course these comments were followed up two weeks later when Hendry miraculously got a job as coach at Rovers as defensive coach , in reality he was Keans ,driver/ drinking pal and a general gopher for KEAN.,.

First thing to do Mr Berg is get Dunn to lose two stone. He is way over weight and its contributing to his own injuries so, cut out his pies and beer and get him on the treadmill for 30 minutes every day, that should erdicate slug trail number one. Surely if we got to the FA youth cup final and we won the youth league we have some youngsters capable of moving up as has henley. That would eradicate slug trail number two. Then play vukevic on the right to give us more going forward and a better supply to rhodes and An other who should be playing as a front 2 gives the opposition more to contend with. We already have nunes on the left who looks quite pacy, just need to get him fit. Then things will be looking up. Oh yeah frogot to mention, put Hanley on the same regime as Dunn as he's looking porkie too. that would eradicate another slug trail.
And one more thing WHO IS THE CAPTAIN??? Who is the leader? Who is the voice on the pitch? Who bollax who when we are not doing what is required? Who is our Roy Keane, Mark hughes steve bruce, gary neville?? Who has the knackers??. We need a leader. What about saying to Grant Hanley if you can lose a stone I'll give you the armband and I want you to kick some arse. After all he's got the face of a captain. Dunn looks like a captain and as soon as he opens his mouth he sounds lke mickey mouse. I want someone who sounds like Ben Hur, and looks mean as u like. Has this Ethuhu fellar got a voice. SORT IT OUT NOW. Get a leader on the pitch. We have too many followers and no-one to follow.

I'm sure Berg will be his own man. If the loonies start to try and dictate, or try to summons him to India to discuss the off-side rule, I'm sure he'd just walk away, which would really sum things up.

However, I don't think that will happen. After feeling a little underwhelmed at Bergs appointment, he is surely a better manager than the drunkard liar. Who wouldn't be?

I heard an interview on talkSPORT with Alan Wright (proper left back!), who of course played with Berg in the earl 90's. He said despite his record in Norway, Berg was the ultimate professional as a player. Very thorough in fitness, diet, training, education and science of the game etc, long before managers like Wenger and big Sam had introduced it into their teams. That of course means nothing untill we start to see some positives and how the players react to his methods. The squad look so unfit and well of the pace, especially in this league, so Bergs approach is hopefully exactly what they need - a good kick up the ar5e!!

Lets make some noise tomorrow night and try to put all the negatives behind us. Smell the coffee won't be in the ground by the sounds of it, he'll be walking around Huddersfield with a sandwich board that says The end of the world is nigh and it's all Venkys fault!!!!! (It probably is but as long as we get 3 points I don't give a sh1t!!

The Problem with appointing Henning is that you set yourself up for all the Boo's again with negative results... This appointment is not exactly healthy for the club, as those who oppose is it will quickly get on Hennings and Venky's backs when we go through a bad patch. Look already only after being in the job few days and a defeat some of the doom merchants are out. Venky's will never learn. The thing about Indian business mentality is.. They always look for a bargin!!

It's ridiculous to start moaning after a new manager's first game. Berg's analysis is spot on. The problem this year is the team has very few players who possess both vigour and experience. Most of these players are either too old. too lazy or too unfit. Look back if you have the memory and remember the players Souness had at his disposal when the rovers last won promotion from the second level: young Duff, young Dunn, Matt jansen, Berg himself as a solid and shrewd defender. At the moment we are just not good enough - which is exactly what Berg said.

exactly, and that's at least a good starting point isn't it.

his comments reflect an understanding of some of the key issues at the moment, so one would then think he would set about righting them.

i'm not one for thinking we need to get the chequebook out in january, as we have a strong squad really. certainly one which is comparable with the better teams in this league. i think others have rightly said that pace and energy are lacking at the moment. it may be time to forego some of the 'experience' for some of the players who will provide a more vigorous approach to the game.
also, comment about fitness seem spot on to me. when players are unfit, it's things like passing that goes astray first, and i think we are seeing that. there is no way murphy and pedersen should be completly unable to hit a 5-10 yard pass. that suggests to me that they are off the pace and are fatigued or always stetching to make a pass or control the ball. add this to the fact that the whole team looks at its weakest towards the end of a game, and i think you have evidence for a complete review of the fitness regime.

Henning Berg never let the club down as a player. He said a few unsavoury things when he left, but returned and did the job well again.

Does anyone else think it a bit odd that all the close contenders for Rover's Manager were ex fan's favorites?

Do the owners want to put a sheild up to get on with what they do best?

Sorry if this touches a nerve, but it certainly fits the bill.

The National Press and supporters of other clubs are difficult enough to convince that the protests against SK and Venky's were just. Moaning about a coach who has managed just one game after taking one training session is idiotic. I would hazard a guess that most of the negativity stems from members of the "i'll buy a season ticket when SK goes" club, who have quickly deflected to the "i'm not buying one because we didnt bring in who i wanted to " club.

It's boring, why let Venky's ruin even more of your Saturdays?

This old couple have now to struggle financially after Hendry swindled them out of their life savings, but of course Hendry now has a big fat salary , he has never , ever, even apologised ONCE to that old couple for swindling them and leaving them short of money in their old age, of course if Hendry ever paid any of his debt back to them , it would be a voluntary act for Hendry as he went bankrupt, so he does not have to pay them back , and Hendry would scoff at any suggestion of him honouring his debts as he does not need to do that , Hendry can again live with his big fat wages and the old couple have now to get on with their lives without the old couples life savings that all went to Hendry`s bookies.
Hendry`s commented in the Scottish Sun when asked about , why did you borrow all that money from the McFarlanes a few months before going bankrupt ,Hendry`s answer "as far as i am concerned my business with the McFarlanes is over" that was the comment from Hendry ,not like his comment when originally asking for the loan from the McFarlanes ,Hendry said "MY WORD IS MY HONOUR" what is Hendry`s word worth , a liar has no honour.
Yaaaaaawn, try sticking to football, leave the lawsuits to the suits. If Berg thinks hendry is no good for him, he will let him go. So considering you even know which hand he wipes his arse with, i'd say you are turning into a bunny boiler or an E-stalker.

I agree Dan. Unfortunately, Berg is stuck with a very poor squad of players. Even Mourinho couldn't make a promotion team out of this lot. However, hopefully he will be able to improve fitness and tactics, and replace some of the tortoises that have been getting selected, with hares that haven't.
By January, if we can just stay in touch with the top teams, Berg will know where the squad needs strengthening. Then, if Venkys keep their promise and provide the funds, Berg should be able to start moulding a squad that is more to his standards, rather than our present Kean/Shebby squad. Got to give Berg time to sort this mess out.
[quote][p][bold]DanBlackburn[/bold] wrote: I don't buy this "it will take weeks and weeks for Berg to turn it around" argument. If only we had that luxury. We cannot afford weeks and weeks - he needs to hit the ground running and generate some points. Yes he needs to make changes but we need some wins and he needs to focus on that immediately. We can all see what needs doing, lumburing midfield, lack of support for the front mae (men) etc.[/p][/quote]I agree Dan. Unfortunately, Berg is stuck with a very poor squad of players.

Had I been Henning Berg I would have spent my Sunday morning with just one man and my questions would have been these

"Right Jordan , what type of player do you need next to you, what type of pass do you thrive on, do you like crosses , do you like balls played down the channels to your feet?"

On hearing his answers I would look at the current squad and see who, if anyone fits the bill and do my rebuilding from there. Jordan Rhodes is the only quality player we have yet he is having to change his game because those around him are not good enough.

Come on Henning......ask him the questions, get rid of the over weight and the over paid.......Rhodes IS the future.

His return to Huddersfield will be important to him......at least give him a chance!

The most revealing comment about the Palace game came from Murray who bagged two goals for Palace. He's quoted as saying "we wanted to show the new boss how good we are".
I can only hope Berg has made a list (and a fairly long one at that) of Rovers players who had absolutely no desire to show our new boss how good they are.
By luck as much as anything, our results are better than our performance, so Berg has a cushion. Good that Berg has put everyone on notice.
Tight defence tomorrow night and hope that Rhodes is fired up to bag a goal against his old team.
As to Dunnie,for all his faults, I reckon he's a better bet than Murphy, not least because Dunnie loves Rovers. As Berg captained the team when Dunnie was at his best, fingers crossed that Berg finally gives Dunnie the advice and guidnace he needs.

Definitely the right thing to do, Henning comes in clean with no preconceived ideas and telling the squad they all start with a clean slate is a good start.

If that can't motivate players nothing will, then there is only one option, a clear out.

Tomorrows starting team could be interesting, lets hope that the players aren't so docile as on Saturday, I wasn't there but I got the impression that they more or less allowed Palace to steamroller them, that's unacceptable and totally down to the players and mustn't happen again.

Sorry if this touches a nerve, but it certainly fits the bill.
What did he say when he left?

I seem to remember it was all done very quietly, even his team mates weren't aware he was going. I personally think that was why Jack Walker (RIP) let it go through so smoothly without a fuss, unlike,say, LeSaux who had a massive (at the time) price tag put on his head. Kind of saying, "So, you think you're that good do you, sonny? Let's see who agrees."

With HB, nothing. So would you please remind me of the "unsavoury" things he said; I don't recall anything of the sort, after he left and certainly not before.
