Orr didn't want to have a 'negative impact' at Rovers

BRADLEY Orr admits he wanted to get out of Blackburn Rovers “quick” after claiming he didn’t want to start having a “negative impact” around Ewood Park.

The Rovers right back joined Championship rivals Ipswich Town on loan until January earlier this week and, after failing to feature in any of Henning Berg’s first three games in charge, claims he feels he didn’t deserve his first team axe.

Orr said he was looking forward to getting a “fair crack” at the Suffolk outfit after admitting he needed to leave Rovers to get the chance of regular first team football.

He said: “In my head, I wanted to get out quick. I didn’t feel like I deserved to be out the team anyway. There was an opportunity for me to strike while the iron’s hot in terms of match fitness.

“I didn’t want to stay around and stagnate for three or four weeks and then come (to a new club) and take three or four games to get up to the pace that is needed. I wanted to do it sooner rather than later.

“When the new manager came in (Berg), we were off the back of two wins and clean sheets, and I wanted to keep my position in the team. But it wasn’t to be – that’s football. I’m not someone who likes to sit around and pick up my monthly wage.

“I want to be playing and mixing it on a Saturday. When I hang my boots up, I want to see how many games I have played. I don’t want to just be a number. “When you are not playing, you sometimes just become, without knowing it, a negative impact on the place. I didn’t want that as I have good friends in the Blackburn dressing room.

“I wanted to get out of the way really and come somewhere where I felt I would have a fair crack at it. I do wish Blackburn and all my friends in the dressing room all the best and every success, but I have come here to do a job.”

too many greedy footballers in the game who find it ok to sit on the bench every week and take the cash...and give nothing back. This is depriving more deserving young talents the opportunity to progress. I can understand where Orr is coming from and glad he has the nous to do something about a situation that he was not comfortable with. Bon chance Bradley hope you find your place at Ipswich..

Agreed.

On another note, CK-R tweeted this morning:

"On the way to training in Danny Murphy's car he has got some bangers on his iPod #SURPRISED not gonna lie I wanted to start skanking!! LooL! "

the team getting on this well and in high spirits can only be good for the Posh match and certainly bodes well for the future.

To be fair to him, he was warming the bench at QPR , Kean brought him here offering him first team football and probably similiar if not better wages, he took it as would most of us, the issue of wether he was good enough doesnt lie with him it is with Mr kean, After that I think he played each game to his best ability, personally that was not good enough for what we needed, again all he can do is give his best. And to be fair if we got offered a contract for three years on really good money, that had to be paid up to get rid off us , we would all take it even if we knew we could not actually do the job.

Berg has come in and said " we both know you have got away with a contract here you never should have got and you wont be in my first team" and Bradleys got out to go play football. I dont see an issue with that, he was a bit niave standing up for Kean and probably regrets it now, but again we move on.

Shame he didn't have that attitude when the odious one was the incumbent instead of going through the motions in what was a pitiful circus under him.

Why not stand up to the ridiculous set up that to the naked eye in the main was a farce on the playing field ? Pulling rabbits out of the hat from time to time surely does not equate to the loyalty he steadfastly stood by ?

His presence under the odious one did not make a jot of difference, in my opinion, and contributed to a woeful record that blights BRFC today.

Berg wants none of that. He wishes for players to be there on merit and not some kind of teachers pet !

Here is to Berg pulling it all around with players who adorn the shirt on merit.

He wasn't the best player we have ever fielded but he looked like a man who tried his best and (regardless of what the fans thought of SK) stood up for a manager that he worked with day in day out who brought him to the club and gave him chance of first team football. People should get off his back. Thanks for your efforts and good luck Mr Orr.

agreed, i just don't see the reasoning for the vitriol he gets.
his support of kean at the time of relegation was not particularly out of the ordinary. it may have been misplaced, but you want at least some of the players to feel like the club should be pulling together.
he's not a terrible RB, but certainly not a great one. assuming henley keeps up the good form and we have a (probably) cheaper ribeiro as back up, then i think this is an ok move for all.
i think the fact that he's been able to hold his hands up and accept that is perfectly decent too.
just having a go at him because he once tried to stick up for his manager is a bit childish. kean's gone now, let's move on.

The reason that Orr didn't figure in any of Berg's teams is the same as why he didn't feature for QPR, there were better players at the club for that position. To come out with this absolute drivel is pure Kean and serves as a reminder as to what our club was like under him. Berg is showing that there is no hiding place at Rovers for the hangers on that Kean surrounded himself with. They either shape up (Murphy) or get out like Orr. Now Kean is gone its time to focus fully on the football and 3 points tomorrow at Posh would be just the ticket. Finally we are looking like a team again and playing some good football. Roll on Dec 2nd and the worst defence in the championship. Time for Jordan's first hatrick for Rovers or I wouldnt complain if he grabbed on tomorrow.

Lets be honest if you read www.colinhendrylies.

com and you can see how COLIN HENDRY stole they old peoples life savings, then he should really be in preston jail for a long long time..


.
For a minute there RC, I thought you wanted Hendry out!

I'd be quite happy to see the back of him because he reeks of Keanure and clearly isn't a very good coach but if the Ice Berg wants to keep him on and results start to pick up, I don't personally give a sh1te about Hendry.
I trust Bergs judgement 100%. He takes no prisoners and no matter what Hendry status is as a playing legend, Berg won't let that get in the way of seeing Hendrys shortfalls as a coach, so you might just get your wish sooner, rather than later RC.

Hendry actually once bought me a bottle of coke and my dad a pint in the old 100 club, so he's not quite as evil as you might believe! That said I don't condone what he has been accused of.... if it's true. My first concern however, is Rovers winning football matches rather than the private lives of coaches or ex-players still associated with the club.

DO WE NEED A PERSON WHO IS A GAMBLER/BANKRUPT WIFE/GIRLFRIEND BULLY BEATER ,STOLE OLD COUPLES LIFE SAVINGS,DO ROVERS NEED PEOPLE LIKE THAT , "oh he was a good player for us" , PERHAPS............. BUT what is he NOW ? Lets be honest if you read www.colinhendrylies. com and you can see how COLIN HENDRY stole they old peoples life savings, then he should really be in preston jail for a long long time.. .[/p][/quote]For a minute there RC, I thought you wanted Hendry out! I'd be quite happy to see the back of him because he reeks of Keanure and clearly isn't a very good coach but if the Ice Berg wants to keep him on and results start to pick up, I don't personally give a sh1te about Hendry. I trust Bergs judgement 100%. He takes no prisoners and no matter what Hendry status is as a playing legend, Berg won't let that get in the way of seeing Hendrys shortfalls as a coach, so you might just get your wish sooner, rather than later RC. Hendry actually once bought me a bottle of coke and my dad a pint in the old 100 club, so he's not quite as evil as you might believe! That said I don't condone what he has been accused of.... if it's true. My first concern however, is Rovers winning football matches rather than the private lives of coaches or ex-players still associated with the club. RTID Rovers75

Bardley Orr was a steady away championship fullback. He offered little going forward and little at the back. He belongs at this level. If rovers have ambitions of getting out of this division they don't need average players.
Berg, to his credit, recognised this immeadiately and has started the massive task of making us a better team.
The only way is up if he carries on with this mindset. Bradley Orr along with other deadwood like Myles Anderson, will not be missed when they are shown the exit.

I was at the Palace game and our main weakness was at fullback, because their wingers were far too fast for our backs, and caused mayhem. We could have had 5 or 6 goals against us. My brother, who is not a Rovers fan, came to the game with me and he said our defenders lacked pace, and he just confirmed my view.

I am not into hurling abuse at people, it is not right, and although I suspect that Mr Orr may be a good full back in some ways, I am sorry but I feel that he is just not quick enough at this level. Having said that, I think that one or two others may be going for the same reason, as this manager seems to now what is needed.

Sorry to burst your bubble but Orr didn't play against Palace.

I did not say Bradley Orr played at Palace, I said our fullbacks were too slow, and that is why I said others may well follow him out of the door. Bradley Orr is typical of most of the defenders now at the club - far too slow. In my experience most successful teams have been built on a strong defence, and Rovers have a very weak defence. Whenever other teams get into our half I am expecting them to score, and the danger is usually from the wings. How many times this season have goals against been at the near post from the wing? - far too often, that is what. If I was the manager I would get a completely new back four. The two Olsson brothers are good at flying down the wing, but not much good at stopping wingers. I watched the Olsson broher playng for Sweden against England on Wednesday and his only tactic in stopping the England winger was to repeatedly foul him. Says it all. The only defender I think is good enough, of those I have seen, is Givet. Of course,there may be other gems at the club, that Kean chose to ignore, so these may appear sooner or later.
Mr Berg is certainly getting the team playing the right way, but I am not expecting a rapid turn around, and it will be a long haul.

I have not seen the evidence about Colin Hendry and I will not comment about what he has or has not done in his private life.

However, I was not a Rovers supporter when he played for the club - I did not move to Lancashire until 2010 - but I do think some folk can be very fickle. No doubt he was a hero when he was in a blue and white shirt.

A lot of the stuff on here is really a bit uncalled for. No doubt Mr Hendry may be a gambler and possibly drinks too much, I do not know him and do not know if that is true - but give the bloke a break. I lost my wife with cancer when she was 54 and believe me it takes some coping with. Is everyone on here perfect? I doubt it.

Lets hope BRFC win today. Were expecting a win...Nothing less will do.

ok
WHY are we not WINNING games...??
in my opinion its because we have too many elderly and slow players in the team.
FOOTBALL is a fast game and they need to be able to last for 90 minutes
Unfortunately BRFC have too many slow or over the hill type players.
For me that's the biggest issue within the team.
we have too many slow players not able to last 90 minutes.
Dann, Hanley, Givet are slow
Murphy, Etuhu, Pederson, Dunn are old and past it.
Gomes is old and not strong enough.
and there's more
what do you think...?
We need fast young energetic players

The centre of our defence is slow and the centre of our midfield is slow.
we certainly can't compete with those players especially as we aim to get back where we belong in the Premiership.

We are missing a midfield general, to dictate play and link up the strikers
We need a big target man to play alongside Rhodes.
We need a fast center back who can play....!!!

Well said wilpshireover. Whatever Hendry as done,he has not been charged wth any criminal offence.

Some comments regardng him re nothing but a disgrace. The man hs obviouly been ina very dark place due o his late wifes health & death.

I met him whilst he was playing at the club he was always helpful to the fans especially the kids and did much for charity.

Charit is a word strange to a number of people who comment on here.

Lets see how things pan out,give the man a chance
