We look like different team under Berg, says Blackburn Rovers star

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

MARTIN Olsson believes Blackburn Rovers are already looking like ‘a different team’ under Henning Berg – but has warned that it will take time to reach their full potential.

Olsson jetted off on international duty after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Birmingham as he prepares to represent Sweden in their friendly match against England tomorrow.

The 24-year-old was left frustrated by Rovers’ weekend result but took encouragement from that performance and the display in last week’s 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town.

Rovers are yet to claim a win in the three games since former Ewood title winner Berg took over as manager.

But Olsson thinks they are already looking much improved as a team – even if it will take time to adjust to new methods under the Norwegian, the full-time replacement for Steve Kean.

“I am frustrated but so is everyone else,” Olsson said looking back on Saturday’s draw.

“We just have to stay positive and keep playing the good football we have been playing in the last two games. Hopefully three points will come soon. I think we look like a different team now anyway.

“I am not going to say anything bad about Kean, he was good in his way as well, but Berg was a legend when he was playing.

“I always watched him play and the way he speaks we listen. We can learn a lot from him because he has been in the same situation. He is always positive.

“It is still very early, he has only been here a week, but he does a lot of tactics like working the whole team instead of the back four.

“It is everyone together and I think it has been shown on the pitch.

“He wants us to play football, not be silly, but to play quick.

“It won’t take a week to change, it will be slow but things are looking good.”

Olsson will face England for the third time in a year tomorrow, in the opening match at Stockholm’s new Friends Arena.

Sweden lost 3-2 at Euro 2012 and were beaten 1-0 in a friendly at Wembley last November.

“I am looking forward to playing against England of course,” he said.

“We had a good game against them in the Euros. It is always good to play England.”

And Martin has formed a left-sided partnership with twin brother Markus in recent Rovers games, something that the duo are happy about.

“If Markus keeps getting the games and I keep playing we will get a partnership, it is good to play with him but it doesn’t matter who we play with,” Martin added.

“Berg wants us to step it up on the pressing. We have conceded sloppy goals, but we will work on that. We need to start winning games.”

As it should be. A football team's defence starts from the front. The opposition
cannot score when the ball is in their penalty area.
Football is a simple game, ball down the wings, cross to centreforward, ball in back of net, simples!! Unfortunately for a long time we have lacked that ball down the wings. Now Henning can address that problem and get it sorted for Saturday, when we should see his first 3 points. (Let's hope so.).

Martin doesn't have to say anything bad about Kean, what he's said about Berg tells us what he thought about Kean - massively lacking in defensive awarness and tactical planning. The fact that he says the players listen when Berg talks also says a lot about the respect Kean commanded. I don't remember any plsyer endorsing Kean like that other than the very naieve Orr on relegation night

Very reassuring to hear that players think so high of Berg. Long time since a player came out like this at Rovers. The old saying that the best method of defense is to attack comes to mind.

Berg is clearly stamping his mark on the team, still early days but things sound and look like they are finally moving in the right direction.

I like the fact Berg isnt afraid to bring in our youth prospects and give them a run, I think Henley has done a great job at RB considering his age.

Formica, Rochina and Vukčević look differnet players playing under Berg. I would like to see Gomes & Rhodes up front together Saturday both have proven they can find the back of the net.

i agree about Nuno Gomes and Rhodes playing together, they are both proven goal scorers and Rhodes can learn a lot playing alongside a guy that has played so long and done so much at the top level. It could only be good for Jordan (and the fans) especially in home matches. I think there is lot of good stuff to come this season from this Rovers team under Berg.

Its nothing to do with the results, no ones happy with two out of nine, not berg, not the players and not the fans! What we are happy for, is because we can now see some light at the end of the tunnel. The team is already playing better, and thats after only a week, Henning Berg talks a lot of sense, and there are plenty of positives coming from the players, just a few weeks ago Olsen wanted out! So after more than two years of hell we can see our team on the pitch coming back together....Thats what we are loving.....

Berg will be a massive improvement on the clown kean, but good appointments are key to running a club and its Shebby n Venkys that keep getting it wrong time and time again, keep up the support but never ever trust those clowns who keep appointing baffoons at our club.

Thanks Martin , you have confirmed what we have been thinking.

On Saturday you could see that we were a team playing to a game plan, can't remember the last time a Rovers team played so well.

I have full confidence the results will come with Berg in charge, just be patient.

I certainly wish Singh would keep his thoughts to himself, he is just embarrassing. Our Communications Director clearly has no idea or control of what our clubs representatives are saying in public. Our FD can't produce the accounts....

On the upside the pitch still looks stunning, probably because Steve Patrick has some great places to hide so Venkys never replaced him with a Kentaro Grass Advisor. Probably the only person who was here when Henning last kicked a ball for us.

Now Henning can address that problem and get it sorted for Saturday, when we should see his first 3 points. (Let's hope so.).
Did not England win the World Cup with Alf Ramsey and his "wingless wonders"? Terry Paine and John Connelly sidelined?
and jumpers for goalposts, hmmm, marvellous....

Probably also had a little to do with Banks, Moore, Charlton et. al. .... who were the best players in the world at the time.

When a dingle compliments you Ronnie.. you KNOW you're doing or saying something wrong!

Hendry may or may not be all the things he's made out to be, but every organisation has its ducious characters, I have a few where I work, its not a game changer. As long as he's able to do his job, his personal life is his own. One thing you always seem to miss out in your anti-hendry tirade - and I'm in no means pro-hendry - is that he wasnt convicted for any of the offences you have named, and in this proud nation at least, you are innocent until proven guilty.

Not the other way round. Give it a rest will you,

Disagree with 'ball down the wings'. We don't have the aireal superiority to compete in the air up front. Last game I noticed that we were far more effective through the center.

They are really simple over there! Or should I say "over thur!" They do have a strange way of pronouncing things!

I'm sure a man of your calibre will adjust!

Keep comms agent Kean, sorry agent Berg, force of habit, my apologies.

And remember as fallen comrade corporal Jones would have said -

"they dont like it up 'em!"

PUNE AMRY
'They do have a strange way of pronouncing things!'
Hmmm, irony over-ride again....

Shouldn't that be:

(Dinglish version)
"I'll smash one reytttt up whippets rusttty bullett dayn stayyyers turniiiite instead ot aytsaaaard bog?"

(English translation)
"I'll think I'll make love to the dog down stairs tonight, instead of the outside toilet"

You really need help glentoran. Of all the dingles who come on here, you take the badge of honor of being the most desperate. That of course makes it all the more easier to laugh out loud at the poison you dream up in your twisted imagination.

An Irish dingle......f@ck only knows what your accent sounds like.

Mind you, it's not the greatest of combinations for producing anything remotely intelligent , so I suppose it doesn't really matter.

I see Eddie's doing well. It was a massive step up to take charge of a footballing giant like Bournemouth. I suppose you can console yourselves it was the only club he would have left you for .... well the only one that begins with B and ends in mouth, anyway.
Lol... Its like shooting dingles in a barrel. It's almost tediously too easy.

Rovers fans who regularly post on here should have a look at the threads regarding our inbred brethren and at least attempt to get them one thread a week in the top ten, I know it isn't easy but we should take care of seventh rate towns with delusions of grandeur, after all, if we can't extract the urine out of the dingles what do we have to live for?

In Soldier Blue they made tobacco pouches out of men's scrotum sacs, is that the same thing? Lardarse was a crook who made sure that the red scum's season was kick started every time we played them, him and red nose are great mates after all, just ask anyone who was at Bolton when he was manager there.

Now Henning can address that problem and get it sorted for Saturday, when we should see his first 3 points. (Let's hope so.).[/p][/quote]Did not England win the World Cup with Alf Ramsey and his "wingless wonders"? Terry Paine and John Connelly sidelined?[/p][/quote]and jumpers for goalposts, hmmm, marvellous.... Probably also had a little to do with Banks, Moore, Charlton et. al. .... who were the best players in the world at the time.[/p][/quote]Don't confuse old Bazzer he still thinks Moore, Peters and Hurst are in the West Sam side;-)[/p][/quote]Don't be obtuse...Big Sam makes silk purses out of sows ears. Even Jerome Anderson's lads have to acknowledge that now![/p][/quote]In Soldier Blue they made tobacco pouches out of men's scrotum sacs, is that the same thing? Lardarse was a crook who made sure that the red scum's season was kick started every time we played them, him and red nose are great mates after all, just ask anyone who was at Bolton when he was manager there.[/p][/quote]The league table does not lie. Jerome Anderson's lads turn it upside down to avoid embarrassment. Bazzer

When a dingle compliments you Ronnie.. you KNOW you're doing or saying something wrong!

Hendry may or may not be all the things he's made out to be, but every organisation has its ducious characters, I have a few where I work, its not a game changer. As long as he's able to do his job, his personal life is his own. One thing you always seem to miss out in your anti-hendry tirade - and I'm in no means pro-hendry - is that he wasnt convicted for any of the offences you have named, and in this proud nation at least, you are innocent until proven guilty.

Not the other way round. Give it a rest will you,
Yeah give it a rest. Hendry is able to intimidate this victims with even more violence so he doesn't get convicted. And that makes him OK. Up the ORC - doing great things for Blackburn

Arte et Labore

not to mention the Orc kicking the sh*it out of women and stealing pensions

yeah let's all give it a rest because he hasn't technically been convicted in court.

FFS, what is the world coming to? It strikes me everyone misses the point and are intent on knocking spots off one another.
It's a given everyone hated Kean, there is a legacy but ultimately natural selection will apply. Like, loath or tolerate Venkys but they own the Club so for me it's toleration as I don't have a viable alternative.
Do Rovers employ people just based on moral values these days (on heresay) or on an ability to do a job?
For the record I have no faith in Venkys or Singh, Shelf Bloke et al and will lobby for suitable change.
French Rover, I can't believe your misinformed Little England comments regarding The Dordogne, but being from Bordeaux perhaps I should. Living East of Sarlat, there are 8 of us that regularly make the 1900 mile round trip to watch The Rovers and 5 of us will be at Peterborough on Saturday.
I ain't willy waving but just p1ssed off continually reading this nonsense and back biting.You are either a bloody supporter or you're not.
The manager, board and owners wouldn't be my choice but hey we are where we are. I console myself thankfully that I'm not a Claret, have 20 digits as opposed to 24 and have no sexual inclinations whatsoever to my siblings.
After all agent Kean has gone, let's get behind Berg.

I think Hendry is a crap defensive coach or a coach of any description for that matter and as such should never have been employed. That is my opinion.
However for those vitriolic keyboard warriors, why don't you post your accusations regarding Colin Hendrys personal life followed by your name and address? If you are sure of your facts that shouldn't be a problem should it?

Well done agent Kean.

I cant believe the locals have fallen for the minor plastic surgery that you had and think your a different man! We didnt even need to waste the expense of a hair transplant.

They are really simple over there! Or should I say "over thur!" They do have a strange way of pronouncing things!

I'm sure a man of your calibre will adjust!

Keep comms agent Kean, sorry agent Berg, force of habit, my apologies.

And remember as fallen comrade corporal Jones would have said -

"they dont like it up 'em!"

What is this Amry you talk of? surely it's Army! If you will attempt to post insults or comments of an inflammatory nature I would suggest you learn how to spell. Please also learn to use your and you're I think my 3 year old has a trace the shape of a letter book I can give you.

I like your style darwenblues, but apart from a few nutters and dingles theres also some humour and debate on here.
There are still a few on here who support Venkys and their henchmen but largely the cautious tolerance seems to have gained ground since the odious one has gone.
Be wary, If you open the ability vs. morals bag you will have Ronnie and the Coffee sniffer on your case for days, i think we've covered that.
Sorry I introduced the little englander theme, I've met a few all over the west of France, but one should not generalise, your commitment to the Rovers cause is impressive and admirable, as must be your wallet.

Keep the faith.

That is a very comprehensive rant darwenblue...but as far as I am concerned for me anyway, that is very true about Dordogneshire - and if you do live there then you should know my comments are not misinformed. Full of old people reminiscing about the old country and how this is just like England was fifty years ago...time travellers but always going backwards.

Bordeaux is a beautiful city and one of my most favourite places anywhere, and we spend a lot of time there for all kinds of things from shopping to concerts to eating out. Sarlat is a wonderful place too, always good to visit in summer, going down by the river.

How do you get back for the matches, drive or fly? I drove back for the Bristol City and Palace games. I would be interested in finding out more about how you travel and to which games if possible?

You should get a good reward from your trip back this week, as we should pick-up HB's first win and three really important points at the Posh!

As for having faith in the V's...well does anyone have faith in them really? They still need to do so much to prove to Rovers fans they have the very best intentions of the club at heart. The Jan transfer window will give us more indication of their intent I think. Safe travel fellow French Rover!

Would it not be a better PR move for Venkys to actually align themselves with the town and local business/commerce. why not take a smaller fee from a local sponsor for a season or two until they have rebuilt some credibility.

Global brands will not be interested in aligning themselves with a championship team.

It seems to me that when the acquired the club Venkys made some statements about respecting the culture and tradition of the club and what it means to the community. So far they appear to have done a great deal to alienate the people and businesses of Blackburn.

Perhaps somebody in PR and communications could step in here ?

Completely agree. It would go a long way to building some bridges with the local community and the town. i think Venky's problem is association, i mean who in this town wants to be associated to them after the last two years?

Too true, you need to develop a bit of a blindspot and just tell yourself you are associated with BRFC, not the owners. Ideally it would be a related product vendor like Thwaites who could pay with product-supply rather than handing over cash. ;-)

Global brands will not be interested in aligning themselves with a championship team. It seems to me that when the acquired the club Venkys made some statements about respecting the culture and tradition of the club and what it means to the community. So far they appear to have done a great deal to alienate the people and businesses of Blackburn. Perhaps somebody in PR and communications could step in here ?[/p][/quote]Completely agree.

Well done agent Kean.

I cant believe the locals have fallen for the minor plastic surgery that you had and think your a different man! We didnt even need to waste the expense of a hair transplant.

They are really simple over there! Or should I say "over thur!" They do have a strange way of pronouncing things!

I'm sure a man of your calibre will adjust!

Keep comms agent Kean, sorry agent Berg, force of habit, my apologies.

And remember as fallen comrade corporal Jones would have said -

"they dont like it up 'em!"

PUNE AMRY
The only thing you lot can hope for is a win against us and that then will constitute a good season!!!! Can you remember the last time the claret **** won a game against the mighty blues????

Stick to watching ur mum with ur brother and ur dad with ur sister!!!!

Come on you blues!!!!

screw you pal, so obviously not a Rovers fan....

Venkys are here for better or worse (hope we had the worst!) and though I don't rate them as owners, the owners they are. They don't seem to be going anywhere soon either, so I and many others have learned to live with that for now. There is definitely a wind of change for good blowing through the club now and though it is early days I know, it will take more than you and some destructive others to spoil things now.

Think I was the only person who gave Kean a chance from day one while the rest of the "fans" contributed as much in a negative way to performances as possible. Extremely likely we'd have stayed up last season without such vacuous bloodthirsty "supporters" sucking the life out of a club, badly run by venkys, but was certainly, by no means likely to go down last year. This year we might have gone down but we might have turned things around. Kean's teams scored goals as well as leaking them. He may have got the defence right and we may have finished with the best defence in the league in the Prem under Kean this season, or more likely we'd have continued banging them in and shipping them but being mediocre. Let the man make it look like we're going down before stamping on the club. Allardyces teams we're solid defensively, good units but you'd only ever see long ball 1-0's rather than bags of goals. I imagine Berg playing a averagely solid, defensive game without any real interest in seeing any goals at either end.

Think I'm the only one who isn't chuffed that Berg is there as manager. I'll give him a fair chance though, same as with kean, unlike the dimwitted majority of "supporters."

We we're 3rd when he left now we're 7th, 7pts off automatic promotion. Sounds like a great thing for the "fans." They can now sit there silently with their vacant grins. I think the only words most of these fools knew were "Kean out." Some "fans" say Kean treated them with contempt, well I think he had every right to. Dictionary for the remaining Blackburn "fans," new word, contempt.

Anyway I might stage my own boycott now or start throwing Bergers at Berg and the pitch in general.

Actually I won't, I'll SUPPORT the team every time I turn up. Regularly by the way. I'm certainly no season ticket "fan." I may be unhappy but why turn up to drag your side down? Turn up, get behind them. Maybe you get one idiot or a dozen. Maybe we're on clearly doomed, or losing the last game we need to win 5-0 to stay up. Then fair play. Otherwise SUPPORT. We were 3rd. Have a word with yourselves rather than emptily swallowing everything the media make you swallow. Same goes for anything you swallow at your “behind closed doors rendezvous,” of which I’ve been invited but I’m not that way inclined. That sort of thing can make you ill, it can be terminal. Ah, that’s why you did the whole “supporting” thing. Wanted to go out with one last bang. Well you got your wishes, soon Rovers will no longer have you pulling at their feet, you’ll be pushing up the daisies. RIP. Sad face.

Do Rovers employ people just based on moral values these days (on heresay) or on an ability to do a job?
For the record I have no faith in Venkys or Singh, Shelf Bloke et al and will lobby for suitable change.
French Rover, I can't believe your misinformed Little England comments regarding The Dordogne, but being from Bordeaux perhaps I should. Living East of Sarlat, there are 8 of us that regularly make the 1900 mile round trip to watch The Rovers and 5 of us will be at Peterborough on Saturday.
I ain't willy waving but just p1ssed off continually reading this nonsense and back biting.You are either a bloody supporter or you're not.
The manager, board and owners wouldn't be my choice but hey we are where we are. I console myself thankfully that I'm not a Claret, have 20 digits as opposed to 24 and have no sexual inclinations whatsoever to my siblings.
After all agent Kean has gone, let's get behind Berg.
That is a very comprehensive rant darwenblue...but as far as I am concerned for me anyway, that is very true about Dordogneshire - and if you do live there then you should know my comments are not misinformed. Full of old people reminiscing about the old country and how this is just like England was fifty years ago...time travellers but always going backwards.

Bordeaux is a beautiful city and one of my most favourite places anywhere, and we spend a lot of time there for all kinds of things from shopping to concerts to eating out. Sarlat is a wonderful place too, always good to visit in summer, going down by the river.

How do you get back for the matches, drive or fly? I drove back for the Bristol City and Palace games. I would be interested in finding out more about how you travel and to which games if possible?

You should get a good reward from your trip back this week, as we should pick-up HB's first win and three really important points at the Posh!

As for having faith in the V's...well does anyone have faith in them really? They still need to do so much to prove to Rovers fans they have the very best intentions of the club at heart. The Jan transfer window will give us more indication of their intent I think. Safe travel fellow French Rover!
I agree with you really regarding The Little Englander generalisation but we're in a relative enclave, most live west, north and south of St Cyprien towards Bergerac and in The Lot. I can't be doing with them to be honest but this ain't the forum. 5 of the 8 Rovers fans are French by the way.
We've driven this time but sometimes fly from Bergerac or Limoges depending on time of year and price.
Any suggestion regarding exchanging personal details but not in the public domain?
