Blackburn Rovers boss Berg confident of improvement

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

HENNING Berg has called for his Blackburn Rovers side to start building some momentum – after admitting “a little extra quality” is needed to turn draws into wins.

The Rovers boss was delighted with the reaction he received from the Ewood Park faithful for his first game in charge but was left frustrated by Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham.

Ruben Rochina’s 12th minute penalty was cancelled out by Marlon King just five minutes later and, despite the best home display of the season, Rovers were unable to bring Berg his first victory as manager as they dropped out of the play-off places.

He said: “If we had shown that little extra quality we could be easily sitting here with six points from the last two games and not two.

“We just have to make sure we pick up those four points we’ve missed out on during the rest of the season.

“The way this league is shaping up now, there are not many teams who are going to run away with it.

“Palace are looking very good at the moment, which we experienced ourselves, but apart from that if we can get a good run together, which we should because there is room for improvement, then of course we will take big steps in the table.

“I think there’s still improvement to come from this team.

“The Huddersfield game and this one, we could easily have had six points from them and then we’d have been in a great position in the league.

“The way they’re playing is quite good – at times very good – but we need to make sure those periods when they’re playing well are longer in games because what we showed at our best today was very, very good.

“We need that extra little bit of quality in the final third to make sure we’re winning these games, not drawing them – the timings of the runs, the quality in the cross and final pass, and in the finishing, and if we get that right we’ll score many more goals.”

A disappointing crowd of a little more than 14,000 turned out to welcome Berg back to Ewood Park, but, while small in number, it was a united home faithful.

“Well I haven’t thought too much about it,” Berg said. “I was really happy about the reaction – I got a fantastic reception today and it’s good to be back.

“When the game starts you’re concentrating on that but you could see how the fans got behind the team and supported them and that’s great to hear. It’s important for the players to feel that. It drives them on.

“It’s just a little bit of a shame that we couldn’t get the win for the crowd – for ourselves of course too – but for the fans because if we’d done that this really would have been a perfect day for us.

“I’ve been here as a player too during some really good times and I know what this place can be like – the volume from the fans, how they can push the team forward, how they can help them in situations and if we can get them back, fantastic.

“I think Saturday was a big step in that direction. Hearing them shouting for the team and really get behind us is fantastic for the players to know.”

I,m not too disapointed in the result as performances needed to improve, under Kean we have not played like that for well over a year, although I thought Murphy was awesome, he didnt pass sideways then back, always sideways and forward, and nearly scored,, COYB

The crowd, Hmmmm whilst I did say some fans (including myself) would return following Kean going it is now obvious the overall damage done by Kean AND the Venkys has took it's toll, it could be years before some fans come back.
On the game, like HB states when we are on top we need to get that second goal.
At least we are seeing some improvement in the way we are playing, lets hope we get another dominant central defender in January window as its blatantly obvious we need one.
Overall it's work in progress.

Early days I know, but Berg seems to have grasped the problems and is trying rectify them…There wasn’t any time for Berg to put his stamp on the Palace game, the last two games have IMO been an improvement and with a little luck could have collected us six points. We are playing better the team seems more organised, earlier in the season we were scraping a few wins but everyone knows we were terrible, outplayed and very lucky to win games…..things seem to be on the change for the better and so refreshing to hear a manager who says it as it is, with no bull, oh and no slimy smiley grin :-)

How refreshing to have a manager who actually watches the same game as the fans and tells it like it is. As the poster above states next Saturday's game presents the ideal opportunity for the stay away fans to see what he is building at the club. I am sure that with a bit of luck we can beat Peterborough and show just what the fans have missed over the last two years. It was so good to watch an actual game of football on Saturday even if the result was not what we all wanted. Once Henning has settled in then I am sure we are all in for exciting times.

Certainly improving. Although I'm in spain I watch most games and am confident he will get it right, but will it be enough I'm not so sure. Venky's need to back Berg in January cos we have a liability in Dann and we need to feed the strikers more. I think we should make the play offs with the present squad but it may not be enough.

Modan, please stop repeating your myths.

Venkys did not pay £48m, they paid £23m and retained £20m of debt.

That debt is still there, against the club. It used to be with Barcays in the UK but has now been moved to India because Venkys would not comply with Barcays requests.

Given the income the club has received during Venkys reign, and the cost cutting they have implemented it does not look like there has been any net investment. However as the club no longer publishes accounts this cannot be tested.

As a Rovers fan I will support my team, I will not thank Venkys for what they have done to my club.

All this despite the cheapest tickets in the league, new manager, most expensive Championship player etc etc.

Honestly, I don't know why you all feed the troll and his conspiracy theories.

4 relevant points I have to make (though they won't get as much attention as the troll):

1) The team are without question improving under Berg. His analysis of the game is also accurate and honest. It really is refreshing.

2) However, its wins that are ultimately the most important thing in football (yes, i was a fan of Allardyce's win at any cost philosophy) and that's what will be judged.

3) I think there's a reason why the Singh fella has said promotion is a minimum requirement for Berg and Blackburn - because we simply can't afford to remain in this league another year with our squad.

4) I think the biggest problem we have is too many players without clearly defined positions, or too many good players in the same position (up front) and not enough in other positions (df and mid). Its a hotch potch right now. He needs to find his first choices and fast. Knowing which players to let go in order to improve in other positions in January/Summer will be key to this promotion i reckon.

Here's to hoping Berg is the man to do it...

I am a Rovers fan, I will support my team, but I will never thank Venkys for what they have done to the club through their ignorance of this business and the arrogance of their behaviour.

They did not pay £48m for the club, they paid £23m. there is £20m of debt that was with Barclays in the U.K. Venkys could not meet Barclays requests so they simply moved this debt to their Bankers in India.

From the revenues the have received and the cost-cutting they have done it does not look like there has been any nett invstment in BRFC.

If they ever get around to publishing accounts then the exact numbers, including the fees paid to agents and advisors, would be clear to everyone and the suspicion that hangs over their tenure would be over, one way or another.

Those "fans" who kept saying they would return when Kean was finally sacked are clearly not being entirely true to their words! The football on Saturday at Ewood was refreshing and exciting. True, it was disappointing only to get the one point but I can honestly say that it is well over 2 years (including much of the BFS era) since I have enjoyed watching a Rovers game so much. I was a little wary when they gave HB the job but it may well work out on the evidence of the improvement during the past 2 performances.

Whilst it will take a huge shift in the behaviours and appalling decision making, sadly typical of the Venky's and Shebby (I still can't work that appointment out!), most true Rovers supporters can now see that at least some lessons have been learned and that some of the damage unnecessarily created over the past 2 years is now being corrected.

Come on all you Blues - live up to your promises and get down to Ewood and get behind the lads!!

Those "fans" who kept saying they would return when Kean was finally sacked are clearly not being entirely true to their words! The football on Saturday at Ewood was refreshing and exciting.

I was a little wary when they gave HB the job but it may well work out on the evidence of the improvement during the past 2 performances.

Whilst it will take a huge shift in the behaviours and appalling decision making, sadly typical of the Venky's and Shebby (I still can't work that appointment out!), most true Rovers supporters can now see that at least some lessons have been learned and that some of the damage unnecessarily created over the past 2 years is now being corrected.

Come on all you Blues - live up to your promises and get down to Ewood and get behind the lads!!
Trust and Respect has been lost, it will take a long time to rebuild the fan base, but if the team perform the crowd will return eventually. Good luck Henning.

Modan, please stop repeating your myths.

Venkys did not pay £48m, they paid £23m and retained £20m of debt.

That debt is still there, against the club. It used to be with Barcays in the UK but has now been moved to India because Venkys would not comply with Barcays requests.

Given the income the club has received during Venkys reign, and the cost cutting they have implemented it does not look like there has been any net investment. However as the club no longer publishes accounts this cannot be tested.

As a Rovers fan I will support my team, I will not thank Venkys for what they have done to my club.
Well said.....I've said all along that I don't believe that Venkys have actually put a penny in of their own money.

Who said ... "We will put £5.000,000 in each transfer window."............

Blackburn fans are probably staying away because they are sick of being treated like idiots. It has been said by many - but now looks like fact - that Rovers were sent down. Games against Spurs away and Wigan at home are testimony to that. It probably suited many people for Rovers to get relegated and to blame the supporters for their misfortune was even more convenient.
.
Yet...it isn't enough for people to make money out of the club...they have to come on here and have a go at people for not providing extra funding their lavish lifestyles....

It was proven in which direction the 'owners' wanted to send the club when they appointed Henning Berg. This was a man who had managed to get 2 points out of his previous 10 games. How does that record translate to someone who can achieve promotion??

They did not pay £48m for the club, they paid £23m. there is £20m of debt that was with Barclays in the U.K. Venkys could not meet Barclays requests so they simply moved this debt to their Bankers in India.

From the revenues the have received and the cost-cutting they have done it does not look like there has been any nett invstment in BRFC.

If they ever get around to publishing accounts then the exact numbers, including the fees paid to agents and advisors, would be clear to everyone and the suspicion that hangs over their tenure would be over, one way or another.
.....The question is, WHY have they not published the accounts (six months late I think ).......Have they anything to hide ?

It was great to have the opportunity to see the game and I actually enjoyed it. We're attacking in numbers and defending in numbers and finally starting to close down the big empty spaces that Kean so enjoyed making available.

Just watching the transformation of Murphy alone shows how much better we are managed now. I'm now optimistic we're heading in the right direction and everyone's starting to enjoy it again (STC excluded of course).

Relegation is always the main reason for lower attendances, some people will only watch premiership football, 2 or 3000 have been put off by the shocking atmosphere, hopefully some of them will return now the atmosphere has vastly improved (hope it stays like that). Then there is the couple of hundred boycotters and demonstrators who we all hope will stay away forever. At most, another 1000 will return if Rovers continue to improve, but it will take a return to the Premiership to bring the 20,000 gates.

Don't agree with the comments about Dann, not perfect, then there has never been a centre half who is perfect. Watching on saturday I thought that he and Hanley are starting to form a partnership, Hanley is a little bit of a crude footballer, but sticks to his job, whereas Dann is much better with the ball. Could make a very good partnership if they can avoid injury. Rovers defended much better second half when the midfield pressed earlier and protected the back four as all good teams do.

Looking at the bottom of the Premiership, it shows how difficult it is to stay in the league, Hughes, Adkins and McDermott, all 3 very good managers and all struggling to win a game. Hughes is struggling even with plenty of financial backing. Have to say that Allardyce has done exceptionally well at West Ham, I was one of those happy to see him leave Rovers, it was difficult to watch his brand of football. He made 3 great signings for his style of football Jarvis, Carroll and especially Jaaskelainen. Shows how important a good goalkeeper is, Allardyce would have got relegated with Green in the sticks. I still have doubts about Robinson, although he looked more confident as well on Saturday.

personally i think support is drummed up , by success and good football, Most clubs have a bit of a moan about the owners but take little interest in them apart from how much money goes into the club, and when necessary we expect them to either back the manager to help us kick on or sack him when its not working. Venkys did not do this and as a result , the football got worse , the results were poor and the atmosphere dropped to rock bottom, thus attendances collapsed.

Attendance will start to pick up as the quality of fottball and the results improve that is the way it is, and quite frankly if in a years if we are back in the premiership and then we kick on, i would nt say all will be forgiven but the last two years will just be memories, fans are fickle, the Geordies are a good expample of this , a lot of them wanted Ashley out and were going mad when he put Pardew in, 12 months laters and Pardew is a genius, why results and exciting football.

On saturday we saw a progression towards something more palatable, the atmosphere was better, we were playing to a plan and you could see where they are trying to get to, the result just did not come which was the downside. If after christmas we are riding high and playing good football, fans will start to trickle back its human nature and we wont all be sitting there saying its great to be top of the league but it would have been nice to Harry in the dug out( We wont care).

Having just read some truly barking posts from conspiracy theorists to stay away protesters who have just moved the goal posts again and made up a new excuse for not attending, I come to the conclusion that the majority of them are posting from Calderstones or only jumped on the bandwagon when Mr Dalglish was instated as the manager all those years ago.
Having watched a vastly improved performance on Saturday and experiencing a crowd who got behind the team instead of berating them it was like a weight lifted and it showed the younger fans what can be experienced.
For those of you who are staying away please do so without calling yourselves the real supporters. Supporters turn up and experience both the highs and lows with the team but still go back irrespective. Different owners, different management, different backroom staff, different players but it's still the same badge that they wear, that we have suppported since 1875 and will do until 2875 hopefully!

Try having a look at the 1993/94 season when Dalglish took over as manager. We went on a run of one win in 16 which included 6 defeats on the bounce. Now is that the run of a man who can get a team promoted from the second tier to runners up then champions of the premier league in 5 season?

Check the records and you will see that did happen, so give Berg a chance, things are getting better,

You are wrong. There are very few Keyboard warriors on here. The thousands that are staying away don't post on here and are staying away for their own good reasons, mainly what Venkys have done to the club.
And the fact that they checked the fixture lists and found out Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea were missing this season.
Dont know whether Kermit is dingle or not however I have to agree that loss of PL football is the reason why some havent returned and by sight, it looks like its the gang from the JW stand as thats the one barely half full. I renwed the day after the cretin Kean left as I said I would. As all said, anybody would be better than Kean. The tealady was even muted. It annoys me that so many are now changing their criteria. I suspect they are the post JW era as we have in the main been spoiled with decent managerial appts. Some of us have supported the team whoever the managr was. You dont choose your team depending on who the manager is

With or without PL status we should be able to scrape together a minimum crowd of 20000 now that the standard of football is improving. Assuming Saturday wasn't a one off.

It was so good to watch an actual game of football on Saturday even if the result was not what we all wanted. Once Henning has settled in then I am sure we are all in for exciting times.

it was only in jest Darener - but I do hope Venkys are taking lots of money out (well maybe not lots) over the next few years - as that should mean that we are in the premiership and doing well. If we have a good and competitive squad challenging for a top 8 place and a couple of good cup runs every season and a stable and well run club - then they can take whatever they want.

Wait a minute isn't that we had three seasons ago before the WT sold the club?

Well played BRFC.
A lot of positives from the game, although just a draw.
We should have won but its football.
many players looked better then what they have of late.

However, the issue of tired players remains a big issue.
Many are talking about the issue of fitness.....!
yes that is a problem but.....is it the only issue......
I would say that its the age of many BRFC players that's the real cause of the problem.
We have too many old or slow players at the club.
Football is a fast game and we require players capable of playing for 90 minutes.
Unfortunately, we cant expect older players to last that long.
Hence, in my view we need to find players in the age range of 20- 27.
These days clubs are increasingly keen to lower the average age of their players, with an eye on future sell-on value in the transfer market, but experience is still important if a club is to be successful. Which clubs have got the balance right and which are veering to far in one direction?

These days top clubs are increasingly keen to lower the average age of their players, with an eye on future sell-on value in the transfer market, but experience is still important if a club is to be successful. BRFC need to do the same. We should not be buying older players but just keep the ones that are older within the club to give much needed experience for other younger players. The average age of footballers in my opinion should be around 25 - 27 and in my view the clubs that have got the balance right are successful. e.g Man Utd, Liverpool...etc.
The teams with too many older statesmen in the long run are veering to far in one direction? and that is a losing position to have in football.

Now i reckon we have 12500 rovers fans for home games in the championship after relegation. so thats a 6000 short fall from prem to championship. Probably no worse than what the dingles lost upon relegation.
