Henley delighted to get his Rovers chance

ADAM Henley is relishing the start of a new Blackburn Rovers era – and is bidding to play as big a part in it as possible.

Rovers 18-year-old right back was plucked from the reserves wilderness to be handed his first appearance of the campaign, being started by new boss Henning Berg in place of Bradley Orr.

Henley was one of the few who came out of Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace with any credit and he is now hoping it can be the start of more first team involvement.

He said: “It is great to be back playing in the first team and it was really an opportunity to show what I can do.

“A couple of days ago, the manager came over to me and said he was looking for me to start against Palace to mark Wilfried Zaha, one of the best players in the Championship.

“It is great boost for my own confidence, I’ve been playing a lot of reserve games recently and the run of games gave me confidence so to get a go in the first team is really great for me.

“I’ve been waiting all season to get my chance and hopefully I’ve done myself justice.”

Henley impressed during a spell in the first team during Steve Kean’s Premier League era last season, including playing in a draw at Anfield and a win at Old Trafford, but was quickly dropped back into the reserves.

And now, having being handed a huge vote of confidence by Berg, Henley is bidding to keep the pressure on his right back rivals.

He said: “Obviously I was disappointed not to carry on in the team last year but I’m still a young lad, I can’t really expect to be thrown in every single game. But hopefully now as I get more experience and play more games that will start to come.

“The manager has come across as a really nice guy and I think over the next month or so we’ll start to see a bit more of his philosophy and what he wants for his players.

“Obviously it was a shame about the result but there are a lot of things we can build on, especially with the new manager coming in, it is the start of a new era really.

“Hopefully we can bounce back from the result, that’s the Championship for you, game after game, so hopefully we can bounce back and get a win against Huddersfield on Tuesday.

“You’ve got to stay on an even keel, you can't afford to stay down, it is disappointing for all the players but we have to stay positive and go into the next game looking for the win.”

Berg was full of praise for Henley’s performance and said his inclusion was tactical as he looked for a way of dealing with Palace danger man Wilfried Zaha.

“I must say young Adam Henley did well,” said Berg. “He showed he has great pace, had many interceptions and had a good game.

“Bradley Orr has been part of a back four that has done well lately and the reason he was left out was because they had quick wingers and we thought Adam Henley would be better suited, man against man, and I think Adam did really well. “Bradley is a good player, is an important part of this team and squad and we will have to use more than 11 players this season. It was a tactical reason for this game.”

Gosh, that sounds sensible!!! Listening on Radio Lancs Zaha was causing lots of trouble but according to HB it would have been worse without this change.

I hope Henning sorts out the team and gets rid of the dead legs who havent made much effort over the season but still pick up a decent pay package at the end of the month. Some of them have been like cart horses running down the pitch, time to get them fitter and making cleaner passes and for gods sake start feeding Rhodes because once he has the ball he can certainly find the back of the net!!!

I am a bit concerned with what Adam Henley says about Berg being " a nice guy" I just hope he has a tough side, because this lot will walk all over him.

Tony Gale described him as a serious guy who is meticulous in preparation. Berg doesnt strike me as a pushover. The young players arent going to say anything significant about a manager. They are trying to break into the team.

Boxing Day, 2001 Blackburn vs Sunderland....we started with the formation 3-5-2 uder Souness, He had changed to three at the back on previous occasions, but it had never worked. The players in the dressing room weren't really sure what it implied. Did he want the central midfield to lie deeper, or did he want the wingers to play as full-backs when Sunderland attacked? Now he was standing there with three fingers in the air.

Blackburn were played off the pitch by Sunderland. They were all over the Blackburn defence and drove cross after cross towards the tall Niall Quinn and the short Kevin Phillips. Henning was in the middle shouting while trying to fend off the attacks, but after 17 minutes Quinn popped up at the far post and scored. Henning ran towards the bench with four fingers in the air. Four at the back! We have to revert to four at the back!

Blackburn continued with three at the back. Sunderland continued to get around on the flanks. After 32 minutes Quinn headed his second goal of the game, and Henning ran towards the bench with the same four fingers in the air. Graeme Souness was sitting in the stands. He saw what everyone saw – that Henning Berg was unhappy with his defensive tactics, that he claimed to have a solution to Rovers' defensive problems. And that he was indirectly criticising his boss in the presence of the home crowd. Henning was substituted at half-time. He didn't protest, but he didn't try to hide his displeasure either. Blackburn lost 3-0

Henning Berg is NO push over and he certainly isnt a YES man if he was he would have done nothing when Sunderland scored!

Give the guy a chance FFS!

It's plain for anyone to see that Adam Henley is a far better right back than Bradley Orr will ever be. Unfortunately for young Adam, Orr was signed by the previous regime and almost certainly promised a place, most weeks.

Seeing what Berg has done there in his first game in charge, fills me with hope. We all know that the performaces Adam put in at Old Trafford and Anfield (remember the last minute clearence) meant he should have been given a run in the side.

Hopefully some of the others not up to it, like Murphy etc will be overlooked and the jobs for the boys culture will be a thing of the past and performances and more importantly attitudes improve.

Aye. For some reason that was a very important game we had to win - promotion season? Do you remember who the manager of Plymouth was? It was the guy who used to goal for Bumley and was Rovers youth coach for a few years up to his retirement. Can't think of his name. Tall fella with thick grey hair. Bloody memory plays tricks these days....

Berg can lose every single game for the next 3 seasons, but will be there till the rest of the money is piped off and the club is financially beyond recovery. He has just taken over the role which Kean undertook before him. Difference is, Kean became so unpopular they simply couldn't let it continue any longer. Don't worry though...he'll still be involved behind the scenes.

What was the point of that rant?? You trying to claim Souness was a rubbish manager and (1 point in 9) Berg is a football genius?? Souness was instrumental in winning a total of 29 major trophies - 11 as manager/most as team captain. Berg has got a long, long way to get any way near what Souness has achieved.

Henley was very good at RB despite being up against one of the form players of the season so far in Wilfred Zaha. Bergs decision to start him there instead of Orr was well justified.

Good to see Henning Berg make 'effective' and much needed changes in the second half (Rochina, Simon and Formica) which gave us some possession back and took the pressure off slightly - which helped keep the score down (as without any changes it could easily have been four or five for Palace).

Also good to see Berg urging the players forwards (inc Henley) with ten mins to go - something that we have never seen from either Kean or Black.

Bad defeat but Berg has seen the problems clearly enough - and there were one of two chinks of light there plus of course we are still in a play-off place which we can push-on from tomorrow night at Huddersfield.

Jordan Rhodes to score and Rovers to win 2-0.

For all of us that were there that is one of the most memorable games from the last 35 yrs. Plymouth fans were up in force and milking it with that first half, but our barnstorming second half was tremendous and all their support had all but departed some 15 mins or so before the end.

Souness was instrumental in winning a total of 29 major trophies - 11 as manager/most as team captain. Berg has got a long, long way to get any way near what Souness has achieved.
Wow! Clearly the point is that Henning Berg was no pushover as a player, why expect any different from him now. To stand up to Souness is not to be shirked at, a man who could not accept criticism of any sort.

This particular piece is an extract from Hennings autobiography about his time under Souness,who fell out with several of the Rovers players and in one training session had a fallout with Dwight Yorke so he promptly joined in the game much to the dismay of the players and went and crocked Yorke who had to be lead off for treatment.

Rovers 5 Plymouth 2 is the most memorable game I've ever seen. Winning that game sent us top of Div 3 over Plymouth, whose fans appeared in our town centre wearing green. They must have gone home thinking they'd been to Mars. Happy daze!

It's good to see your recollection of that game, I like stright talking players we need more. The only trouble is he's moved on, and his confidence has taken a big hit in Management, so he can't command the same respect as he did a player yet.

He has one heck of a job on his hands with all the non footballing dross tied in at Blackburn that he has to answer to. I hope he has the full power to do his job, but doubt it with Silly Shebby trying to put himself accross as knowledgeable.

Henning inital "honest" approach is refreshing, yet he will certainly need the same from his staff and players....and that is all he can do right now.
Give them who clearly show in training they are putting in the extra effort ....in other words that "do the walk and not the talk" (like with Orr & Dunn as an example).
Leading from the front....and with Henning Berg having been there and "done it" he comes with credibility (not like conman Kean, of course).
From the real supporters side of the club....for goodness sake get behind him and let the player know we appreciate 100% commitement when given.
Lets see 20,000 on the weekend.

With regards our No 1 fan "smellthecoffee"...w
e all are aware the club continues with "ownership" concerns ....yet is it not better to, OK ..."monitor" the future and focus on what is trying to be achieved on the pitch !!!!

My main concern is this Shebby Singh...who really should not be SEEN or HEARD....just leave it to ones who know the game, because you really have made too many stupid comments of late to last a couple of seasons or more !!!

It's good to see your recollection of that game, I like stright talking players we need more. The only trouble is he's moved on, and his confidence has taken a big hit in Management, so he can't command the same respect as he did a player yet. He has one heck of a job on his hands with all the non footballing dross tied in at Blackburn that he has to answer to. I hope he has the full power to do his job, but doubt it with Silly Shebby trying to put himself accross as knowledgeable.
You mean he has one hell of a job because of his incredibly poor record as a manager. If he did have any respect as a manager, then his job (of commanding respect) would be made a great deal easier. I doubt McCarthy, Holloway, Freedman or even Dyche could help him with that problem...why not contact Steve Kean...see if he can recommend any decent PR bullsh1tters? Better still, let him read the continuous trail of putrid bile emanating from the keyboards of those with an underhand - and very possibly criminal - financial interest.

This particular piece is an extract from Hennings autobiography about his time under Souness,who fell out with several of the Rovers players and in one training session had a fallout with Dwight Yorke so he promptly joined in the game much to the dismay of the players and went and crocked Yorke who had to be lead off for treatment.
So...he DOES have skills for self promotion....well..t

What was the point of that rant?? You trying to claim Souness was a rubbish manager and (1 point in 9) Berg is a football genius?? Souness was instrumental in winning a total of 29 major trophies - 11 as manager/most as team captain. Berg has got a long, long way to get any way near what Souness has achieved.
Wow! Clearly the point is that Henning Berg was no pushover as a player, why expect any different from him now. To stand up to Souness is not to be shirked at, a man who could not accept criticism of any sort.
Thank you at least some people understand my point...clearly smellthecoffee has little understanding of my comment

Correct me if I'm wrong here....but according to the rant, Souness was "sitting in the stands" and Berg "ran towards the bench", so how exactly did Berg "stand up to Souness"?? No more questions your honour....

Bergs record at Lyn who where a selling club by the way.

On 19 August 2008, Lyn announced that Berg had accepted an offer from Lillestrøm, where he had last played in 1992. Henning Berg signed a five-year contract and took over as head coach on 21 October 2008. On 27 October 2011, Henning Berg was sacked three matches before the end of the season as investor Per Berg promised fresh funds for acquiring quality players after the season.

Lillestrøm had massive financial difficulties and berg had to sell the best players in the squad to try and turn that around.

Oh and Lillestrøm didnt get that investment from Per Berg as promised and are still in trouble.

Some of you fans need to go away and research before you start commenting on things CLEARLY you know nothjing about!

Yes...but Souness was in the stand. Had he been on the bench when Berg was running over then you and he would have a point. There seems to be no record of him ever doing that. Seems like Henning is a legend in his own brew time!! Time for him to start proving his worth by accumulating points - not claiming legend status for barking orders at an empty block of wood!

Bergs record at Lyn who where a selling club by the way.

On 19 August 2008, Lyn announced that Berg had accepted an offer from Lillestrøm, where he had last played in 1992. Henning Berg signed a five-year contract and took over as head coach on 21 October 2008. On 27 October 2011, Henning Berg was sacked three matches before the end of the season as investor Per Berg promised fresh funds for acquiring quality players after the season.

Lillestrøm had massive financial difficulties and berg had to sell the best players in the squad to try and turn that around.

Oh and Lillestrøm didnt get that investment from Per Berg as promised and are still in trouble.

Some of you fans need to go away and research before you start commenting on things CLEARLY you know nothjing about!
we saw it first time, its what he dos here not in a little back water league that counts !!!!!!!!!!!

you still call them fans?

I've seen dingles come on here talking more sense, These doom merchants seem to WANT the club to fail under Venkys tenure so they can be rid of them one can only presume,

To wish the club sinking into administration to achieve that aim makes me wonder what kind of fan that makes them. Venkys arent perfect, they're not Qatari's or billionaire russains and they are deluded and have made many mistakes - mistakes that ultimately cost us our premiership ranking, ironically just as the EPL funding was boosted and sure it hurts.

But we all need to get behind the team and the new manager and stop moaning about what's gone on and realise that things could have been and still could be FAR FAR worse. We aren't in administration, we're not languishing at the bottom of the championship table and we still have as good as any other relegated team, if not better chance to get back up to the premiership,

Before that can happen though we need a team that can compete in the premiership and to do that Berg needs all the support we can give him as he gets the team back into both physical and motivational state to to just that.

What was the point of that rant?? You trying to claim Souness was a rubbish manager and (1 point in 9) Berg is a football genius?? Souness was instrumental in winning a total of 29 major trophies - 11 as manager/most as team captain. Berg has got a long, long way to get any way near what Souness has achieved.
Wow! Clearly the point is that Henning Berg was no pushover as a player, why expect any different from him now. To stand up to Souness is not to be shirked at, a man who could not accept criticism of any sort.
Thank you at least some people understand my point...clearly smellthecoffee has little understanding of my comment
Yes...but Souness was in the stand. Had he been on the bench when Berg was running over then you and he would have a point. There seems to be no record of him ever doing that. Seems like Henning is a legend in his own brew time!! Time for him to start proving his worth by accumulating points - not claiming legend status for barking orders at an empty block of wood!
Don't bother trying to explain anything to the bean sniffer, he just likes to moan about everything except Big Sam, in fact, are you Big Sam? and also the fact that shebby didn't bother with his direct line and Mick Mcarthy suggestion, so now he has a portion of chips on each shoulder.
I, and others suggested Simon Grayson for the managers job. He didn't get the job so we move on and get behind Berg.
But bean sniffer can't move on, he needs structure, he needs it all laying out his way and his way only.
I always wondered what happened to autistic kids when they grew up, I thought they just seemed to disappear but no, they grow Big Sam and Mick bananaman Mcarthy fetish's and type rubbish all day, waiting for the windows to get dirty so they have something to lick. I bet if I threw a box of cotton buds on the floor he could tell me how many were there at a glance. he hasn't been to Rovers in over two years and he wants people to listen and agree with what he types. calling for another boycott already just smacks of a Dingle in disguise.

usually when a new manager comes in the players try hard to impress the new man. Henley did but what about the others? Simon Garner said it was the worst displayfor a long time- that's saying something about the strength of the squad and the attititude of the players! Henning will show if he's the right man sooner or later- there is so much to put right.

A 4-1 away win at Port Vale on a hot Spring day was another memorable occasion, where I think we actually clinched the title (?). Mike Hickman ran himself into the ground for the cause and probably lost half a stone and I remember Stuart Metcalfe walking one in around the 'keeper.

afternoon!
Right, here we go again, you lot are never happy. come on guys, give berg time, i think considering that palace are the form team in this league it was a tough ask for berg to deliver in the two days prep he had prior to the game. I think he will restore the passion and the organisation you are lacking, and he aint afraid to try different players.
Back the lads, back berg and you are only 6 points off top with the leading team cardiff an absolute bag of w**k, you will coast this league after a good run which every team does put together. I fancy three points for us both tonight, Leicester for us, again a poor team, and Huddersfield for you, you will deliver there, be positive!

Well, you negative, need-a-life, numpties, I'm going to the game tonight. Y'know, watching 22 men kicking a bag of wind around, a real live game, not sitting angry, bitter and twisted, spouting out venom against one and all on t'internet.

You want to try getting out a bit more, see what happens elsewhere at other clubs. I've enjoyed (suffered) games at Stanley, Rochdale, Forest, Wigan, Anfield next week.

If we win, fine. If we lose, so be it.

To Smelly and Ronnie, you've made your points over and over again. You are both obsessive and that's not good at your age. Give it a rest.

Bergs record at Lyn who where a selling club by the way.

On 19 August 2008, Lyn announced that Berg had accepted an offer from Lillestrøm, where he had last played in 1992. Henning Berg signed a five-year contract and took over as head coach on 21 October 2008. On 27 October 2011, Henning Berg was sacked three matches before the end of the season as investor Per Berg promised fresh funds for acquiring quality players after the season.

Lillestrøm had massive financial difficulties and berg had to sell the best players in the squad to try and turn that around.

Oh and Lillestrøm didnt get that investment from Per Berg as promised and are still in trouble.

Some of you fans need to go away and research before you start commenting on things CLEARLY you know nothjing about!
we saw it first time, its what he dos here not in a little back water league that counts !!!!!!!!!!!
Tell that to the so called fans that have been moaning about his record then! C0CK!
grow up !!!!!!!!!!

Boxing Day, 2001 Blackburn vs Sunderland....we started with the formation 3-5-2 uder Souness, He had changed to three at the back on previous occasions, but it had never worked. The players in the dressing room weren't really sure what it implied. Did he want the central midfield to lie deeper, or did he want the wingers to play as full-backs when Sunderland attacked? Now he was standing there with three fingers in the air. Blackburn were played off the pitch by Sunderland. They were all over the Blackburn defence and drove cross after cross towards the tall Niall Quinn and the short Kevin Phillips. Henning was in the middle shouting while trying to fend off the attacks, but after 17 minutes Quinn popped up at the far post and scored. Henning ran towards the bench with four fingers in the air. Four at the back! We have to revert to four at the back! Blackburn continued with three at the back. Sunderland continued to get around on the flanks. After 32 minutes Quinn headed his second goal of the game, and Henning ran towards the bench with the same four fingers in the air. Graeme Souness was sitting in the stands. He saw what everyone saw – that Henning Berg was unhappy with his defensive tactics, that he claimed to have a solution to Rovers' defensive problems. And that he was indirectly criticising his boss in the presence of the home crowd. Henning was substituted at half-time. He didn't protest, but he didn't try to hide his displeasure either. Blackburn lost 3-0 Henning Berg is NO push over and he certainly isnt a YES man if he was he would have done nothing when Sunderland scored! Give the guy a chance FFS!
What was the point of that rant?? You trying to claim Souness was a rubbish manager and (1 point in 9) Berg is a football genius?? Souness was instrumental in winning a total of 29 major trophies - 11 as manager/most as team captain. Berg has got a long, long way to get any way near what Souness has achieved.
How dare Brunzig try to be positive.
and how dare you be negative...... your a disgrace so now its a bad thing being positive these days..... no wonder wer in such a mess a new manager two days in and your calling a fellow fan for trying to stay positive complete d1ck
oh and he was sayin berg isnt a pushover/yes man not comparing him to souness low iq springs to mind..... are from burnley by any chance ???
I was being sarcastic true blue..... coffee is on a one man mission to show up Venkys for what they are, which I admire but I just want to get on with doing what I've done since 1982 and that's support my football club. Suggesting I'm from Bonleh is hilarious. Whilst coffees been on one man mission to destroy Venkys, I've been on a mission to pick out every single dingle on here to remind them of their unimportance and our clear dominance in a rivalry they exist for.... so put that in your pipe and smoke it! ;)
