Rovers beaten by Millwall

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

Two Millwall blockbusters saw Rovers slip to defeat as the Lions won 2-0 at Ewood Park.

Chris Wood lashed home a 20 yard right footed effort 19 minutes from time before James Henry scored a similar thunderbolt in the final minute to end Rovers' three game unbeaten run.

The result was harsh on Henning Berg's side who gave as good as they got in an even contest, particularly in a second half where they were the better team.

But the hosts created few clear cut chances with Martin Olsson and debutant Josh King having the best of them. Olsson's drive was palmed over by Millwall keeper David Forde, while King almost made an immediate impact after coming off the bench but Forde kept out his curling effort.

At the other end Andy Keogh and Wood were always a threat for Millwall - who saw three goals chalked off for offside.

And they displayed a clinical side that Rovers were lacking to seal the points.

The result saw Berg's men slip out of the Championship play-off places.

a very disappointing result today....we really need to be beating teams like these at Ewood....they went above us in the table so a bit of a double whammy. King sounds like he made a difference when he came on..? But why are we not getting the ball to Rhodes more..? Need to win the next game..

I was working so unable to go but i followed it on the BBC website and every shot seemed to come from Rochina, if his finishing was just as bad as last week then we need to think about his position in the team or even just his role. I also for the life of me cannot understand why one week Berg is complimenting players like Vukcevic and then just ignoring them. Its no use playing players like Formica and Fake Olsson, when we have more experienced international players who are injury free and wanting to play. With the length of the campaign we cannot afford to be playing players week in week out letting them fatigue when we have cover that may just be able to pull of a surprise.

It is way too early to judge teams depending on their league position, I think we done that today. Its so tight at the top half that a loss like this could be considered a major set back, we need to go on a run now if we are serious about promotion. Was excited for this game after last weeks brilliance never even considered that Berg will still need time. "Let's Go Rovers"

A lesson learnt. Millwall were hard-working battlers whose football will never see the Premiership. Minimal passing. Minimal quality. And we had no answer to it.
*
Their first was a cracking finish but how often he does that in a season explains why he is a Millwall player.
*
Until Rovers has a settled team they cannot impose their indiividual quality on well-drilled opposition.
*
Playing too many featherweights and exotics against rough and tough sides only works if we let the ball do the work and let the opposition chase shadows. Otherwise, we will be bullied like today.

stick to football says...

Millwall were well organised and defended as ateam - bodies thrown in the way of the ball. They countered with pace but primarily they dominated the midfield as the possession stats will show. They worked hard and were fitter than Rovers so for them a well earned victory you could see why they were on a 10 match unbeaten run.

Rovers tried hard but created little too often they were passing along the back and then because they were quickly closed down it was a long high ball - Rhodes is not that type of player an upfront alone man

Rochina has quality but decision making too often lets him down. At the back Hanley was left for dead for the first goal, no one would doubt his effort but he lacks pace and often awareness that a quality defender needs.

Whilst it is good for HB to keep an unchanged team that is no reason not to change the team when they are not creating - there was a really strong bench this afternoon and yet to leave Vukevic there until 6 minutes from time was poor judgement. Rovers are not helped by the standard of refereeing in this league where to come through and take everything seems acceptable not to mention shirt tugging and bodychecking of the Italian variety.

Reality is we are some way off being a team who can challenge for promotion and if we did get there we are not as good as QPR which says everything.

Berg needs time and if today is anything to go by - lets start to build a team for the future that can win promotion and stay there even if there are some poor results along the way

Congratulations to Henning Berg on his 5 points from 5 games. This is a much better tally than he amassed from his last 10 games at his previous club. At this rate our Championship status for next season could be secured by mid March and we can all relax...............
..apart from Shebby, The Snake, Singh of course who will be busy looking for our next manager having demanded an immediate return to the premiership from Berg.
It was also great to see all the " I won't be back at Ewood again until Kean has gone" fans back again. With our lowest gate of the season I can only assume that the attendance was dragged down by Kean's supporters boycotting the club?

I'm afraid the honeymoon is over for Henning. We despatched a pub team last week with ease but a well organised, motivated team was too much for us. 2-0 may have been harsh but they showed us what WORK-RATE, COMMITMENT and decent crossing really is.

I have predicted all season we will finish mid-table and I'll never change that prediction whilst we're playing players like -

ETUTHU - This guy really is the worst senior central midfielder we have seen down Ewood for the last 25 years - he has absolutely NOTHING to his game at all and must make DM job almost impossible.

Formica - £3m ??? - what is this guys best position ?? - he's as fast as a 3 legged tortoise with gout - adds absolutely NOTHING to the team.

"Airfix" Ollson - Trys hard and has pace but there is NO end product to this lads game - I call him "airfix" cos he's a cheap, plastic imitation of the real thing.

Also, Givet needs to come in at CH - he is our best CH and a warrior and MUST be picked (personally I would make him captin as well).

We actually have players that could come in an improve the team if Berg dropped these light weights - King for Airfix, Vukevic for Formica and well, ANYONE for Etuthu.

To be fair to HB the mess that JA and SK have left after 18 months of buying total DROSS (and filling their own pockets) has left the squad totally over-bloated and under-served in the quality department - all those Rovers fans who keep spouting that this is the best squad in the championship need to wake up to reality FAST.

Most expensive - YES, best - NO (the 2 arn't the same thing Shebby).

I personally think it would be a disaster for us to go up this season as this squad needs a complete clearout of all the Kean losers and a proper, motivated, quality team needs re-building (virtually) from scratch.

Could you really imagine this sqaud in the PL next season ?? - we would get completly mullered EVERY week.

Let me say I fully support Berg and the team but if you were there like me todays performance was abysmal - on todays efforts cant see us more than mid table.

And as for those with short memories who dont like my 'OUT WITH'S' let me remind you - Kean resigned, he wasnt sacked and if he hadnt resigned he probably would still be in the Managers seat under the current abysmal Administration.
Berg needs to bring in is own backroom staff and get shut of Keans cohorts including if possibly Shaw Agnew Singh and especially Black and Hendry then you might see some improvement in performance and more importantly attendances - the Venkeys and Co have a lot to do to bring back the missing thousands and Keans reignation was only part of the equation of which they played no part!!

I have predicted all season we will finish mid-table and I'll never change that prediction whilst we're playing players like - ETUTHU - This guy really is the worst senior central midfielder we have seen down Ewood for the last 25 years - he has absolutely NOTHING to his game at all and must make DM job almost impossible. Formica - £3m ??? - what is this guys best position ?? - he's as fast as a 3 legged tortoise with gout - adds absolutely NOTHING to the team. "Airfix" Ollson - Trys hard and has pace but there is NO end product to this lads game - I call him "airfix" cos he's a cheap, plastic imitation of the real thing. Also, Givet needs to come in at CH - he is our best CH and a warrior and MUST be picked (personally I would make him captin as well). We actually have players that could come in an improve the team if Berg dropped these light weights - King for Airfix, Vukevic for Formica and well, ANYONE for Etuthu. To be fair to HB the mess that JA and SK have left after 18 months of buying total DROSS (and filling their own pockets) has left the squad totally over-bloated and under-served in the quality department - all those Rovers fans who keep spouting that this is the best squad in the championship need to wake up to reality FAST. Most expensive - YES, best - NO (the 2 arn't the same thing Shebby). I personally think it would be a disaster for us to go up this season as this squad needs a complete clearout of all the Kean losers and a proper, motivated, quality team needs re-building (virtually) from scratch. Could you really imagine this sqaud in the PL next season ?? - we would get completly mullered EVERY week.
May I add to your assessment of the squad?

Hanley: A big gormless clogger
Henley: A rabbit in the headlights
Murphy: An overpaid has been with no skill or commitment
Formica: Pretty, but like the table top, cosmetic value only
Dann: Robbing a Sunday League pub side of a perfectly average centre half
Berg: a dead man walking

All we can do is hover around the top 6 until January, falling behind is something that we can't allow to happen.

Once HB can spend a few quid in January, which he hopefully can, it will start to get interesting. Right now we don't have the team. We have players, but certainly not a team. We are still living in the aftermath of Kean and until HB can truly make it his team nothing will change.

Personally don't think we will get promoted this season. I would definitely not be surprised if it took 2 or 3 season, if at all. If promotion is what we want then those 10,000 or so fans need to get back down here and support the team. Kean is gone, we have what we want. It's now time to get back down there to give ourselves the best chance for promotion.

Henley: A rabbit in the headlights
Murphy: An overpaid has been with no skill or commitment
Formica: Pretty, but like the table top, cosmetic value only
Dann: Robbing a Sunday League pub side of a perfectly average centre half
Berg: a dead man walking
I'm not sure I would go quite that far but the fact is that the squad is massive but how many would you really want to keep ? 7 or 8 at most.

We have to remember thou over the next few months that the state of the squad (and hence) results is down to SK and JA - really HB can't do that much until next Sept as there is so much dross in this squad that it'll take 2 transfer windows to get rid of it all and bring in his own players.

SS saying that promotion this season is a "must" is not helpfull and shows his lack of understanding of the size of the problems (just on the playing side) that we currently face after 2 years of Venkys ownership and 18 months of Kean reaping his havock.

The re-building job that is needed is absolutely huge - I'm amazed how few Rovers fans still understand this.

(eg - we have Nuno Gomez on HUGE wages - but how good a signing is he actually ?? - couldnt get in the Braga team for last 2 years, big earner but can't possibly play all 46 games as he's too old and we've got him for 2 YERS ! (Millwall on the other hand signed the upand coming Chris Wood on loan as their striker - he scored 14 goals last season, mainly in Championship, won't be a big drain on wages and is a player thats getting better every year, he is young, fit and eager - who is the better signing ?).

And you can go through the Rovers squad, its full of has beens on huge wages (Dunn, Pederson, Gomes, etc) or never beens like "Airfix Ollson, 6 Portugese youngsters, Denis Irwin or total dross like DE, Desperate Dann or MF.

Hanley: A big gormless clogger Henley: A rabbit in the headlights Murphy: An overpaid has been with no skill or commitment Formica: Pretty, but like the table top, cosmetic value only Dann: Robbing a Sunday League pub side of a perfectly average centre half Berg: a dead man walking[/p][/quote]I'm not sure I would go quite that far but the fact is that the squad is massive but how many would you really want to keep ? 7 or 8 at most. We have to remember thou over the next few months that the state of the squad (and hence) results is down to SK and JA - really HB can't do that much until next Sept as there is so much dross in this squad that it'll take 2 transfer windows to get rid of it all and bring in his own players. SS saying that promotion this season is a "must" is not helpfull and shows his lack of understanding of the size of the problems (just on the playing side) that we currently face after 2 years of Venkys ownership and 18 months of Kean reaping his havock. The re-building job that is needed is absolutely huge - I'm amazed how few Rovers fans still understand this. (eg - we have Nuno Gomez on HUGE wages - but how good a signing is he actually ?? - couldnt get in the Braga team for last 2 years, big earner but can't possibly play all 46 games as he's too old and we've got him for 2 YERS ! (Millwall on the other hand signed the upand coming Chris Wood on loan as their striker - he scored 14 goals last season, mainly in Championship, won't be a big drain on wages and is a player thats getting better every year, he is young, fit and eager - who is the better signing ?). And you can go through the Rovers squad, its full of has beens on huge wages (Dunn, Pederson, Gomes, etc) or never beens like "Airfix Ollson, 6 Portugese youngsters, Denis Irwin or total dross like DE, Desperate Dann or MF.

Once again Jordan Rhodes starved of chances Henning's comments at the aftermatch interview saying it is ok to play this way because Jordan always takes two defenders with him and leaves room for the other players to score. Sorry Henning you have got it the wrong way round, other players should make the chances for him. There are only two natural finishes on the books Jordan and Nuno and these two should be getting the chances to score. First time your logic doesn't make sense.Mr Black had a lot better record of points per game whilst he was in charge.Yours to date is very poor. The team might have improved but the points tally hasn't we are now in the lowest position this year under your stewardship, hope the stuation improves soon.

'The result was harsh on Henning Berg's side who gave as good as they got in an even contest'? Not from where I was sitting it wasn't. Milwall had the ball in the net 5 times today and had it not been for the linesman's flag, it could have been a hammering. Just when we thought we were beginning to get it right, Rhodes played with a huge gap between himself and any support today and was left to chase for scraps with 4 defenders round him. It's ok away from home when you can play on the break with that system but at home it's not acceptable and i'm sorry Henning, but it's NOT WORKING!!! And having just forked out for half a season ticket, I fear It might be money NOT well spent. Murphy back to his worst again i'm afraid. Olssen (Martin), play him on the wing or don't bother with him at all, he's useless at full back and had another shocker today allowing cross after cross into the box against average championship players. Dann? A poor man's Christian Dailly and along with his partnet in crime Grant Hanley, a poor man's Dereck Fazackerly; both seemingly capable of being half-decent championship players but regularly showing that they are far from that. Hendry!!! £8000 a week? What for? For coaching or organising what? It's certainly not the back 4!! And Robinson? Maybe he needs dropping for a short spell, to knock the complacency out of him and practice his kicking too. I fear we might be stuck in this league for at least another year.

Today showed us the legacy that Kean left us with. A squad that lacks midfield creativity and a defence that lacks leadership and experience. But we knew this so no need to panic. The challenge for Berg is to keep us in contention till January and give us the quality we enjoy up front across the squad. As for emergency loans, there was no greater quality and experience greater than what we had out there. Kean left this club in a terrible mess but Berg will turn it round.

Now some games are going to be discounted ( Bolton next, for example )
it will be cheaper to buy tickets for all the games in the second half of the season on a match by match basis than buy a half season ticket for JW centre.

It is a lot cheaper to buy a half season ticket for all the other three stands than buy match by match - as it should be.

Why on earth would anyone buy a half season ticket for JW cente and which idiot at the club is responsible for this policy which in the end will bring in less revenue and will result in an even lower gate?

Robinson had a stinking game, Murphy non existent, no help for Rhodes up front, Rochina seems to have been told to be so much a team player he forgot where the goals were.
Overall lots of possession no end product.
I haven't been for eighteen months, I think it will be awhile before I return.
Good luck Henning I think your going to need it.

Like they say a defeat or two is no problem in this league as long as you win two or three to counterbalance it. We all know or should know this team is not a great one, but given time and using the right players for the right games, we will eventually see a change, maybe not this season but definitely next. Bolton are struggling to get the formula right in this league also, so it will be interesting to see who wins on Wednesday, but next Sunday there will be only one winner and that will be us :)

Hi JC your comments are spot on. The midfield is carrying too many lightweights. We cannot play Murphy and Etuhu so we must replace Etuhu as he is not mobile enough. We also cannot afford Formica and Rochina to play in the same team. Insufficient pace or movement. Marcus Olson works hard enough without any result. We are paying the price for Kean's extravagance in bulk buying a lot of midfielders without any careful thought.

Oh dear - what a poor performance.

Millwall were definatly the best team to come to Ewood list year.

Rhodes totally isolated

Another shocking performance from Rochina. I've never seen a player who can control a ball with such skill and make so much space for himself and then always play possibly the worst ball possible. If he does actually pass, he either overhits the ball or hits the ball with such power that no-one can control it. He must be dropped. Gomez has shown he can score and create oportunities in this league - Get him up front with Rhodes

Murphy and Etu also very poor again, would much prefer MGP in there

Givet needs to come back in the defence.

"Their first was a cracking finish but how often he does that in a season explains why he is a Millwall player" - like I already said - He's a WBA player (on short-term loan at Millwall).

How often does he do it ? - thats his 8th goal in 13 appearances for Millwall.

Our Loanee (prob on 3 or 4 times the money) CKR has scored 2 goals for us in 7 appearances and wasnt even picked for our bench today yet we still had to pay his vastly over blown wages.

Hmm, wonder who is the better loan signing ??

Time to stop thinking that just cos these players play for Millwall, Watford, Birmingham or Burnley that they are somehow inferior to our players - they are not.

We are where we are, and that means a mid table championship team with mid table champonship players.

Lets cut out the "steve kean" arrogance, it gets us no-where, it just makes us look ignorant and stupid

Dunn, Nuno, Dann all reported to be on over £20 a week, Murphy and Rhodes on over £30k a week? Hendry on over £8k a week?
Premiership wages for mediocre championship players? (Apart from Rhodes)
Lets see how much money Berg gets in the next transfer window, he's going to need some.

Absolutely spot on gents. There is even a comment from French Rover earlier on "we really need to be beating teams like these at Ewood". What is it? Blind optimism with a touch of arrogance?
We ARE teams like Millwall. Trouble is, they are better than us. They play effective, no frills, percentage style football. I note there are many on here now calling for substance over style. Portuguese lightweights are NOT going to get us out of this league.
Couldn't agree more Bazzer, as a game I really enjoyed it, pity about the result but Millwall deserved the win, they did something we couldn't do, punish mistakes and take their chances.

I watched them last week and suspected they might just pose us a few problems, didn't they just.

On the other side of the coin I would also suspect that Rovers will play an awful lot worse this season and win easily.

We have a lot to learn about playing in this league, but I am starting to enjoy it.

I agree about the football, we have seen some very good teams down at Ewood this season, Rovers simply need to adapt that's all.

In a free world you are entitled to your opinions but to REAL SUPPORTERS your views are meaningless and worth absolutely nothing. Now for the facts: Steve Kean was placed in an impossible position by the new owners. He endured the mindless and incessant vitriole from mindless bullies until he was eventually hounded into resignation by Shebby, The Snake, Singh..........a man who will eventually go down in Blackburn history as even more toxic than Jerome Anderson.
I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that under Steve Kean we would still be in the automatic promotion places. Henning Berg has exactly the same managerial credentials and track record as his current and former sidekick, Colin Hendry. Both were brought into the club in a ridiculous and shameful attempt to ingratiate the fans by reliving the past glories of the 90's.
Singh and Berg between them have set the club back immeasurably because under Steve Kean the team was heading for an immediate return to the Premiership. We are now heading for oblivion.

BFS's team could be 5th in the PL tomorrow. Not to worry though eh? We are currently playing Barcelona type free flowing football in the Championship, getting turned over by facking Millwall. Still, at least we beat the mighty Posh.

Maybe WHUFC will sack BFS if they don't win tomorrow? Venky's probably would do. That's what they did after we failed to beat Bolton and go to sixth in the PL. The rest, as they say is history.

Whats wrong with Chris Wood ?? - he's on loan from WBA (currently top 4 or 5 in PL), he's only 20 years old but has scored over 20 goals in his last 50 games - I don't think thats bad for his age ?

My point is - you slag him off but why ? - surely he IS the kind of player that if we were a well run club we should be getting in, instead of CKR or NG - younger, cheaper and more end product.

This is high time to get quality with control in the game. I feel Pedersen,Gomes,Kazim
,Vukcevic,Givet,Lowe should get back with start. Each one have there quality and proved too. I know Kazim is not a favorate to all, but he can generate hell out of power in his shot. I feel Kazim will play better than formica.

Loosing games is not easy sign to get back soon, other teams will get more strength with points in the table and we end up in mid table with a vast quality of big names and big pay.

Not much I can see yet about the meeting at Blackburn Cathedral yesterday so I suspect that a large percentage of the missing 10,000 didn't trap, about 99% I would suspect.

The real fans turned up at Ewood yesterday and will continue to do so, as they have for years.

Couldn't agree more, Millwall are a settled, fit, hard working team that actually play some decent football, in a league that suits their play and Chris Wood is a very good young player with a great deal of potential.

Rovers under Berg are moving in the right direction but there is still a lack of confidence brought on by what has happened over the last two years.

Alex Ferguson couldn't fix that in an handful of games.

Another point, I haven't checked recently but I would lay odds that our away form is significantly better than our home form.

Rovers played well but were beaten by a better team on the day.

I would argue the difference between the two sides was actually the keepers, one who commanded his area from start to finish and the other who appears to have been tapped up by West Ham.

Real fans support their club through thick and thin, not throw tantrums and run to mummy when someone takes their ball away.

Not much I can see yet about the meeting at Blackburn Cathedral yesterday so I suspect that a large percentage of the missing 10,000 didn't trap, about 99% I would suspect.

The real fans turned up at Ewood yesterday and will continue to do so, as they have for years.
Indeed. About 1000 I believe, mostly lamenting about the good old days, living in la la land with a few prize oldies giving succour to their noble quest. I wouldn't mind if these were attending fans who wanted to have a backup plan in case Venky's did the unthinkable and left, but from what's floating around the forums, it appears these are largely the boycotters who refuse to come back until Venky's leave - presumably the same who claimed they would return when Kean was gone.. And we get promoted.. And we win the premiership again.. And we resurrect Jack again.. Yeah pull the other one you bunch of glory hunting, bargain hunters.

I'm with you. Really fans get behind the team, not whinge incessantly about the state of the club's management, which I don't remember any of them objecting when it was sold right under their noses to foreign unknowns.

Still, it gives them something to do now that Ewood Park is no longer their home. Whilst they quietly plot to take over the world the rest of us can at least get on with getting behind our team and club.

Oh.. And the best excuse I heard yesterday for not coming back, when I suggested that Kean had gone so what the purpose of the continued boycott:

"Well technically he wasn't sacked.. "

I rest my case,

By all accounts we let a good keeper in Bunn go for next to nothing,when he took over from Robinson for a period of time he played well and commanded his area.Robinson seems too have lost his way and a new keeper to install some authority at the back would be a big plus

Being realisitic folks and banter aside, if Burnley can't beat Rovers next week after the circus we've had under Kean and the disarray Berg is now left with, they never will. It's being handed on a plate. Our back 4 are as flaky as pastry. Lots of nice passing but no end product unless against non existent opposition like Posh. The squad is there to do well but they need re-coaching after being under the tutliage of useless cretin Kean so its going to take some time. Course I don't want to lose pts to Burnley but I have my eye further ahead to May and its that result that's most important. My lads are going on Sunday and though they desperately want to win or at least draw they'll enjoy it whatever the result just for the occasion, singing etc.

Absolutely spot on gents. There is even a comment from French Rover earlier on "we really need to be beating teams like these at Ewood". What is it? Blind optimism with a touch of arrogance?
We ARE teams like Millwall. Trouble is, they are better than us. They play effective, no frills, percentage style football. I note there are many on here now calling for substance over style. Portuguese lightweights are NOT going to get us out of this league.
Aaah, the exponent of the kick and rush spots the style of football he craves.
BFS student loves a game of two hooves
Just kidding.
BFS's team could be 5th in the PL tomorrow. Not to worry though eh? We are currently playing Barcelona type free flowing football in the Championship, getting turned over by facking Millwall. Still, at least we beat the mighty Posh.

Maybe WHUFC will sack BFS if they don't win tomorrow? Venky's probably would do. That's what they did after we failed to beat Bolton and go to sixth in the PL. The rest, as they say is history.

Does not matter about being bullied by Championship sides as if we bring in quality we would still win these games we just dont have the right blend in midfield.I hope Berg has some prospective recruits up his sleeve as we definately need a right winger with the pace to get the ball in to Rhodes and Co.

SOMETIMES ITS BETTER TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT !!!!

Ruben was our best player and the only likely way of getting a goal with his creativity and willingness to keep trying. He's a young player who needs encouragement whether it comes off or not.

I dont know if anyone else else thought Jordan looked a bit tired (virus ??) and off the pace ... Just illustrates how reliant we are on his forward play & goals ...

Much like those idiots on Radio Rovers every week who ring in from USA or Norway or that annoying woman in Brussels .. You cannot comment on games without seeing them or being there ..

I do agree with you that we are now headed for oblivion, but It was Steve Kean that made it all possible.

That's because when we win we are Dingle free and can have constructive discussions about the Rovers. When we lose they come on here to wind us up, distracting us from the main topic of how we played. If they concentrated on their own pages it would be a lot better.

I was afraid last time I watched Rovers at Turf Moor and we were herded into that shed until I was crushed against the back wall of the concourse. Dont know about jabs it was like going back to the 1970s.
You will not be herded this time they will not be enough of you.

Aaah, the exponent of the kick and rush spots the style of football he craves. BFS student loves a game of two hooves Just kidding.
BFS's team could be 5th in the PL tomorrow. Not to worry though eh? We are currently playing Barcelona type free flowing football in the Championship, getting turned over by facking Millwall. Still, at least we beat the mighty Posh. Maybe WHUFC will sack BFS if they don't win tomorrow? Venky's probably would do. That's what they did after we failed to beat Bolton and go to sixth in the PL. The rest, as they say is history.

I can’t think of any positives to take from this game.
Rovers were well beaten by a decent Millwall team who played a simple 4-4-2 formation. Yes they actually had 2 strikers working alongside each other – none of the 4-4-1-1 favoured by Kean, Black and now it seems Berg.
Can someone please explain what was the point of signing a 5ft 11” striker and bringing him on the left side of midfield to replace Olsson.
Surely he needed to go upfront to support the isolated Jordan Rhodes.

What will happen when Leon Best is fit? - will Berg continue to play 4-4-1-1 ?
Turning now to midfield, we have now had 18 games of the season and in my opinion I am convinced that Murphy and Etuhu are not the right combination in the centre of midfield.
Formica is not a right sided midfielder or a winger – in fact he disappeared from the right completely in the 2nd half. This had the effect of preventing Henley from getting forward in support.
I agree with an earlier post in asking why was Vucavic not brought on much earlier?
At the back, Givet must start in the centre.
Finally, we all know that Shebby Singh set Kean a points target of 16 from his first 7 games. So far Berg has 5 from 5 games.
I am willing to give Berg more time but a possible automatic promotion this year is rapidly slipping away.

Common sense, but I suspect Bazzer's current "glass half full" was like most real fans glass before Berg took over, very close to empty.

Mine had an hole in it, it's about two thirds full right now.

I am fairly upbeat about Berg and Rovers at present, just hope I am in an happy frame of mind this time next Sunday.

And even if we don't win that one I suspect we only need to get to the transfer window and still be in touching position of the top 6, let Berg move some players on and bring his own players in, then anything can happen.

Then who knows, could be full glasses at the end of the season.

Millwall showed us today that we lagged behind them in numerous areas, ORGANISATION, FITNESS, DESIRE (to name but 3)

I agree with you we have had idiots bulling us that we only have to turn up to win a bit like Spurs thought at the game in Cardiff when we did them over,it's going to take some blood and guts to get out of this league,this remains to be seen if the present lot are up for it.
Absolutely spot on gents. There is even a comment from French Rover earlier on "we really need to be beating teams like these at Ewood". What is it? Blind optimism with a touch of arrogance? We ARE teams like Millwall. Trouble is, they are better than us. They play effective, no frills, percentage style football. I note there are many on here now calling for substance over style. Portuguese lightweights are NOT going to get us out of this league.
Come on Bazzer - one defeat does not kill a season just as a win does not make one either. As for being like Millwall well we have never ever been a team like Millwall and never ever will be. They will never ever play in the prem and never have even a smidgeon of the success that our club has had. If you cant see us as being a better club in all aspects than Millwall are than its hard to say much else to you....it is just a case of glass half full as usual for you it seems looking sadly at the dregs at the bottom and seeing the ugly mush (and football) of BFS again...Millwall deserved their win but I would bet you anything you want we will finish higher at the end of the season!
Frenchie, it is surely what it is now, not what has been. And now, we are "teams like Millwall". And when the parachute payment stops and we may not have gone back up, we may well be struggling to keep up with Millwall. There are not going to be any fancy big name managers, and we will not be playing like Barcelona. For now the 1995 title is as relevant as our 6 F.A. Cup wins. We need to reinvent ourselves on the lines of Boro or Forest. But, we will always be better than any other club in the world.

Still not like Millwall Bazzer whatever you say...but yes we will always (in our minds and our hearts) be better than any other club in the world. Proud (still) to be a Rover.

And yes still some sorting out to do now and in the Jan window for HB to get it all together and make us into the scoring / winning team that is hard to beat and is up there challenging and then winning promotion.

Common sense, but I suspect Bazzer's current "glass half full" was like most real fans glass before Berg took over, very close to empty. Mine had an hole in it, it's about two thirds full right now.

How the hell can you convince people that things are better under Berg when his Championship record is worse than Keane's and Black's?? You just continue to peddle your bile on here while the club plummets down the league.

More players...more commission to embezzle out of the club.

Rovers lost to an on-form side... We had plenty of shots to show that we are a top class team, we just didnt get the luck with the goal on the end of them... $hit happens!! We cant win every game, no team can!

All I know is that if we bring the form from the last 4 games to Burnley next week we are going to DESTROY them! I dont care how hard Burnley work, THEY DO NOT HAVE THE CLASS THAT IS ROVERS!!!

Berg needs to start getting tough with this team, way too much complacency.

Paul Robinson was beaten by 2 goals scored from a mile out, this is not good enough, the first one fair enough not a whole lot he could do with that but his positioning and reaction to the 2nd goal was pathetic. Friedel in January is a neccesity.

Grant Hanley is not a good player, its that simple, he was megged embarrassingly for the goal and his overall play is so slow and lumbering all season.

Centre Midfield is way too slow for this league, we need busy box to box midfielders who will compete in there and give nothing away easily. etuhu and murphy are not working!

we're not 100 miles off dominating teams and getting the results we deserve but at the moment we are naive, unfit and rusty
lacking some fire in our bellies. hopefully the upcoming derbys can ignite some passion!!
