Rovers boss Berg disappointed by late leveller in East Lancashire derby

Lancashire Telegraph: Henning Berg at Turf Moor Henning Berg at Turf Moor

HENNING Berg expressed his frustration that Blackburn Rovers were unable to secure all three points in yesterday’s East Lancashire derby at Turf Moor after admitting that they were ‘so close’ to victory.

Rovers had led 1-0 against fierce rivals Burnley, with Jordan Rhodes’ 68th-minute header putting them ahead despite a performance that was below par for long periods – particularly before half time.

But Sam Vokes came off the bench to nod in a free kick in the 89th minute and secure a 1-1 draw for the home side.

The result maintained Rovers’ 33-year unbeaten record against Burnley but Berg was disappointed that his side could not see out the game.

“Looking at the chances and the play, we can’t have too many complaints about the result,” said the Rovers boss, who was taking part in his first derby match as the club’s manager.

“But when you are 1-0 up and it’s the 89th minute, it doesn’t matter what the game has been like before that and who has had the most chances, we still have a very good chance of winning the game.

“Maybe if you looked before the game you would say a draw would have been okay but when you’re that close to winning, and the way we played in the second half, I thought we did much much better.

“Looking at the first half performance you would say Burnley were the better team with more chances and more play.

“But we were very close to getting a great result. It would have been a fantastic result and we were that close.”

Paul Robinson made some important saves to keep the score at 0-0 in the first half and Berg admitted that Rovers did not cope perfectly with the derby experience before the interval, having also made three changes for the match.

“Maybe we got caught a little bit in terms of not settling down and playing football as we would have liked to,” he said.

“We changed it a little bit in terms of how we wanted to play as well, so maybe that’s why the game ended up being liked that in the first half because we played a little bit differently.

“We were just being a bit more direct. In a game like that it’s okay to do that but we got caught doing it a little bit too much, we didn’t find the right balance.

“That is something we’ll work on. I thought in the second half we were much better at it.

“I thought Burnley were the better team in the first half and I thought we shaded it in the second half.

“We defended better, higher up the pitch in the second half and used the ball better, and we scored a great goal.

“We’d been defending those free kicks and corners all day long fantastically well.

“I have to give credit to the back four, the goalkeeper and the two central midfielders.

“We were put under pressure a little bit too many times in the first half, they saved us and made sure we were still in the game.

“We were giving away a little bit too many free kicks in dangerous areas and towards the end it was one too many.

“We would like to improve in terms of how we defend and get free kicks against us.

“If we take a little bit more care of the ball, a little more mental strength then I think we would have won the game.

“But 1-1 is not the worst result.”

Berg should not just be disappointed; he sshould be humiliated and ashamed to see his team throw points away again against the mediocre teams in this division. His managerial record at the club reinforces the general belief that his appointment was a ridiculous misjudgement and an insult to the fans and his predecessors. In gael givet he has a strong and committed defender who can play anywhere across the back and yet he persists with henley and hanley who are even less reliable than ddann and olssen. Who is going to advise the venky group that their global advisor is giving them rubbish advice? Someone needs to as if we are quick we might still stand a chance of getting ole gunnar solkjear. They can have berg in part exchange.

It's obvious if we are not going to play Givet for what ever reason we desperately need a new CH, every game we have played recently the opposition have put a big centre forward on and Dann nor Hanley can coup, I can see this surely HB or the pension robber can see this.i can't even remember the CH we bought at the beginning of the season but he dies not even get on the bench.
There is more chance of seeing Lord Lucan on the Ewood pitch than our favourite agents son, does anyone know where young Anderson is nowadays?

Normally you would have to give Berg the rest of this season before being able to judge him on his performance.

In normal circumstances that would be fine - but the pressure is on Berg to get us promoted at the first time of asking. Personally I don't think that is possible this season with this squad and I think most Rovers fans can see that and accept that.(but only just).

The task is not just to get a good enough squad/team to win promotion it is also to make the team/squad/club sound enough to stay in the prem once we get there. No easy task for any manager.

We have to be prepared to give the club and HB enough time to do this. If it takes another season then so be it.

Better to build a strong club that survives than becoming a one-hit wonder and struggling and getting relegated again.

My view when HB took over, expressed in these columns, was that promotion was very unlikely as the squad was not balanced and lacked pace in midfield.
Obviously this view has not changed since and next season will be the big test for our manager. We need youth and pace/bite in midfield, a natural right winger and a centre back (if Givet is not to be selected).
I always considered Givet our best centre back when we were in the premier but we have to trust that the manaager has his good reasons on this?
Lets hope HB has what it takes and is given some time, things were a total mess before lets not forget and we do now seem to have some normality around the club.

It is getting boring hearing the manager say he is dissapointed that we conceeded in the last minute after defending too deep again and letting the opposition crawl all over us waiting for the obvious to happen. We need some tactical imagination to get these players to play properly and stop trying to be complicated and go back to basics instead of the players not performing week after week. I think we will be in a mess in a few weeks time and on current form relegation is strong possibility.

We need a Jermaine Jones equivalent.

Can't believe what dead weight Murphy has been (and Etuhu). It's a bit tragic as they seemed like positive investments. Obviously they both lack the attachment to Rovers that they had to Fulham, and it was probably passion for the club that kept Murphy performing beyond how a man of his age would be expected to.

Got to give Berg time. More upheaval/disruption would be awful right now. He apparently loves pace -we've been crying out for pace for years. Hopefully he'll get in a decent CM.

Shame this Rosado chap is obviously no good...

Henning, you were here when we won the league. Surely you must remember. The team was built around Shearer and whoever played up front with him.
A strong midfield, 2 wingers and a solid defence.
Rhodes can be the new Shearer.
Please find someone to play up front with him and then feed them.

You couldn't fault the centre backs for courage and "putting their bodies on the line", but I would have to agree about Murphy, hes lost what little pace he had and was feally effective in midfield (I think the same could be said for Pederson, whilst there was nothing wrong with his effort, just the end result)

This is looking more of the case Mr French ?

Berg as to be given time in building a team in his own vision because this lot for all reasons outlined are simply not up to the task. The team for me is wholly fragmented and the cohesion is far from perfect.

Yesterday's game for me personally was a bit of a damp squid and I believe both sets of supporters on the whole were pretty subdued for that which I believe is the transition taking place at both clubs ? Neither side didn't want to lose that was plainly obvious, but how they went about it left much to be desired ?

Berg(with the help of Venky etc) needs to clear out the deadwood. Gaining promotion at this juncture would do nothing, in my opinion, only result in the possible relegation, as you point out.

This all sorry mess that as besieged BRFC these last 2 years or so is purely down to the big wigs which in turn leaves us, the supporter, shouldering the whole sorry mess attempting in putting gloss on what at times is, I'm sorry to say, like polishing a turd !

But I'm with you on building a strong club that survives than the one hit wonder you allude to.

Berg must be given time to build a solid platform and the likes of Josh King, and dare I say, CKR. Those two 2nd half along with Formica very nearly stole the show with the class, quality striker that goes by the names of Rhodes.

Still, we march on into the 34th year bragging rights firmly entrenched - just !! He He :)

7 games proved this in the same club.
7 Games - SK - 14 points - 4 win
6 Games - EB - 8 points - 2 win
7 Games - HB - 7 points. - 1win

HB win with a poor team in this championship, I am not considering that is a win. But Steve really work hard to keep us in the top of the league.

Are you serious!! Poor old Henning won't be able to build a serious squad with the cheapskates owning the club. They think he can do it with the bag of rubbish he has now. They have appointed a no cost manager because they don't want to part with any money and any purchases in January will be more than offset from sales - which has been their business model since buying the club. Unfortunately this club will only move forward once these shysters have sold up. Henning Berg will quickly come to realise this and I feel sorry for him

If Shebby the Snake begged hard enough he might just get Steve Kean back.
Hi Angry, I'm just curious but what did you like about Steve Kean ?

Another day of shattering spirit sapping disappointment.
I don't care about 33 bl++dy years. I want to see my team win. I look around at the squads team's have above us in the league and despite many silly comments above, we do have a very strong squad now for this league.
We just need someone who knows what he is doing.

Didn't we all cry out for an experienced manager.

Cheap Cheap Cheap Venkys - sounds just like one of their farms.
I hate them for what they have done to my beloved club. Hate them.

In normal circumstances that would be fine - but the pressure is on Berg to get us promoted at the first time of asking. Personally I don't think that is possible this season with this squad and I think most Rovers fans can see that and accept that.(but only just).

The task is not just to get a good enough squad/team to win promotion it is also to make the team/squad/club sound enough to stay in the prem once we get there. No easy task for any manager.

We have to be prepared to give the club and HB enough time to do this. If it takes another season then so be it.

Better to build a strong club that survives than becoming a one-hit wonder and struggling and getting relegated again.
This is looking more of the case Mr French ?

Berg as to be given time in building a team in his own vision because this lot for all reasons outlined are simply not up to the task. The team for me is wholly fragmented and the cohesion is far from perfect.

Yesterday's game for me personally was a bit of a damp squid and I believe both sets of supporters on the whole were pretty subdued for that which I believe is the transition taking place at both clubs ? Neither side didn't want to lose that was plainly obvious, but how they went about it left much to be desired ?

Berg(with the help of Venky etc) needs to clear out the deadwood. Gaining promotion at this juncture would do nothing, in my opinion, only result in the possible relegation, as you point out.

This all sorry mess that as besieged BRFC these last 2 years or so is purely down to the big wigs which in turn leaves us, the supporter, shouldering the whole sorry mess attempting in putting gloss on what at times is, I'm sorry to say, like polishing a turd !

But I'm with you on building a strong club that survives than the one hit wonder you allude to.

Berg must be given time to build a solid platform and the likes of Josh King, and dare I say, CKR. Those two 2nd half along with Formica very nearly stole the show with the class, quality striker that goes by the names of Rhodes.

Still, we march on into the 34th year bragging rights firmly entrenched - just !! He He :)

Arte et labore
Agreed RR sir....we need to remember that it is only six months since we got relegated from the prem and the reason we got relegated is that we were not good enough. The management, the team and the players were all not good enough.

We still have the majority of those players plus a couple of decent additions plus one class signing...plus a new manager.

It wont happen overnight, you don't go from very bad to very good - this season just to get to good would be an achievement. Right now I think we are somewhere between bad and average.

We have to keep perspective...the other two clubs that came down with us both beat us already this season - but both of them are still below us!

Some of the other teams above us in this league have good squads that they have put together over a couple of seasons like Cardiff, Boro, Brighton and Leicester but we (despite all our many failings) are already almost on a par or better than some of these teams. We already beat Leicester, Watford and Hull for instance - yet lost to Millwall, Palace and Boro.

These results show that the championship is a very open league and anyone putting a decent run together will be at or near to the top,

Yet even though promotion may be a step too far this season...if we can just keep in contention/touch and put a run together at the right time then who knows what is possible....the play-offs maybe?

Sorry FR I disagree.
Take a look at these squads and tell me who the great players are?
The difference is the management and cohesion. The discipline and the fitness. The ability to be effective as a team.
All the things we are lacking.
We have enough quality to get promotion but another couple of losses or home draws and its all over for this season.

Well VENKYs this is how low your stupidity has brought the club down. No better than Burnley (and actually a bit worse truth be told because Burnley had much the better of the game.)
Meanwhile the excellent manager you idiots fired, BFS, has taken a mediocre championship side to the top half of the Premiership and beating the European Champions 3-1. When you are alone do you admit between yourselves what damage your stupidity did or are you too dense and too arrogant to realise.
I hate the sight of you hanging over the rail of the directors box like a couple of spoilt teenagers. Scruffy, overweight, badly dressed; a study in degenerate, self-satisfied, stupidity.You look like a couple of gangsters with Ma Baker back in Pune.

Didnt you enjoy more being 10th in the premier league before Kean took over? How can you give praise to a manager who after a few games and lucky results had us near the top of the championship when over two seasons previously he relegated us from the premier league. Its reverse logic and some fans are losing perspective. Kean was bad news, disillusionment at the current predicament is distorting fact and his ability. He was a despicable person.

HB win with a poor team in this championship, I am not considering that is a win. But Steve really work hard to keep us in the top of the league.

Improvement action plan nothing with Berg. He is going to just another game. same saga goes on and we will get only disappointed news after every game. Grip 15 players to win or leave the club.
I have some advice for you:
a) read a book/go back to school - anything to improve your grasp of the English language
b) go and support Burnley - you obviously have no passion for this club and no real knowledge of football
Well said. This Matthew chap is surely a Venky plant or relative. Its post after post of nauseating support for the idiot Kean.

In normal circumstances that would be fine - but the pressure is on Berg to get us promoted at the first time of asking. Personally I don't think that is possible this season with this squad and I think most Rovers fans can see that and accept that.(but only just).

The task is not just to get a good enough squad/team to win promotion it is also to make the team/squad/club sound enough to stay in the prem once we get there. No easy task for any manager.

We have to be prepared to give the club and HB enough time to do this. If it takes another season then so be it.

Better to build a strong club that survives than becoming a one-hit wonder and struggling and getting relegated again.
This is looking more of the case Mr French ?

Berg as to be given time in building a team in his own vision because this lot for all reasons outlined are simply not up to the task. The team for me is wholly fragmented and the cohesion is far from perfect.

Yesterday's game for me personally was a bit of a damp squid and I believe both sets of supporters on the whole were pretty subdued for that which I believe is the transition taking place at both clubs ? Neither side didn't want to lose that was plainly obvious, but how they went about it left much to be desired ?

Berg(with the help of Venky etc) needs to clear out the deadwood. Gaining promotion at this juncture would do nothing, in my opinion, only result in the possible relegation, as you point out.

This all sorry mess that as besieged BRFC these last 2 years or so is purely down to the big wigs which in turn leaves us, the supporter, shouldering the whole sorry mess attempting in putting gloss on what at times is, I'm sorry to say, like polishing a turd !

But I'm with you on building a strong club that survives than the one hit wonder you allude to.

Berg must be given time to build a solid platform and the likes of Josh King, and dare I say, CKR. Those two 2nd half along with Formica very nearly stole the show with the class, quality striker that goes by the names of Rhodes.

Still, we march on into the 34th year bragging rights firmly entrenched - just !! He He :)

Arte et labore
Agreed RR sir....we need to remember that it is only six months since we got relegated from the prem and the reason we got relegated is that we were not good enough. The management, the team and the players were all not good enough.

We still have the majority of those players plus a couple of decent additions plus one class signing...plus a new manager.

It wont happen overnight, you don't go from very bad to very good - this season just to get to good would be an achievement. Right now I think we are somewhere between bad and average.

We have to keep perspective...the other two clubs that came down with us both beat us already this season - but both of them are still below us!

Some of the other teams above us in this league have good squads that they have put together over a couple of seasons like Cardiff, Boro, Brighton and Leicester but we (despite all our many failings) are already almost on a par or better than some of these teams. We already beat Leicester, Watford and Hull for instance - yet lost to Millwall, Palace and Boro.

These results show that the championship is a very open league and anyone putting a decent run together will be at or near to the top,

Yet even though promotion may be a step too far this season...if we can just keep in contention/touch and put a run together at the right time then who knows what is possible....the play-offs maybe?
Sorry FR I disagree.
Take a look at these squads and tell me who the great players are?
The difference is the management and cohesion. The discipline and the fitness. The ability to be effective as a team.
All the things we are lacking.
We have enough quality to get promotion but another couple of losses or home draws and its all over for this season.
I didn't say they these other sides had great players Dan - what i said was that these other teams have had time to build their squads and set themselves up (on and off the field) to challenge for promotion.

If a club is set-up right and the squad is half decent then these clubs can make a bid for success despite managerial changes. Hull have had four managers since 2010, as have Leicester - and Palace have had three, so all are comparable to the Rovers.

So with a decent manager (that could be Berg) that can set the team up right and with a couple of additions in the Jan window plus a little bit of time - then there is every reason to believe we can challenge for promotion at least as strongly as any of these other teams.

Hello mr pensioner Sir, the problem is not the back four, its whats in front of it.
Danny murphy, did he play yeaterday??
Its like playing with ten men. You need a midfield general to drive play into the opponents half. To close down and lead all around by example. Not stand there and watch the game pass you by as you point at the ball for someone else to chase. Who made this guy captain, you couldn't have picked a worse player.

Oh for a Jermaine Jones or Robbie Savage - we need someone like them on midfield to put their foot in and not let sides dictate the game.

My fear now is that when Rovers are 1 0 up there is a mental thing that they are half expecting to loose the lead.

Steve Warnock switched from fullback to midfield - why not try Givet as the defending midfielder and Vuckevic as the man to unlock defences - what we have seen of him he looks as capable as D M - pace on either wing and Kazim & Jordan up front would pose a real threat to get that second goal which could settle the team down.

We are not good enough for the Premiership but we are not too far away from the top if we can put together s decent run - the away form is good only one defeat on the road and points tslly could have been so much more. We need to dominate at home starting with Cardiff

Better to build a strong club that survives than becoming a one-hit wonder and struggling and getting relegated again.
Promotion with the current squad is a non starter, and without substantial investment from the owners (track record is not encouraging) i'm afraid it would be a nightmare for the fans to watch. Whenever I watch a premiership game, and not necessarily the top teams, I despair at just how far Rovers are now off that standard. A veritable mountain to climb!!

I dont think you can say what Kean could achieve with any certainty other than to drag a team down. People are making a massive oversight when making judgements about Kean. Those outside of Ewood are judging his ability on a handfull of games at the beginning of a season in the league below where we started. We were lucky in most of those games and those watching could see where we were heading. Looking at the bigger picture, he dragged us down from 10th in the PL, fell out with important players, put them in detention, tactically useless and that is one reason why the team are now struggling. Dunn, Ollson, Murphy have all muted that the training wasnt up to scratch under Kean. Who can forget the non-show against Spurs and then Kean's deluded summary of the game after? This man that some are now suggesting we would be better off with, is a toad. His only achievement is to slither into a job he wasnt equipped to do, stay in it despite the damage he was causing, manipulate the national media, worm his way into the favour of the owner, slag his former boss off on youtube whilst on Rovers business, struggle to win more than a handful of games in the PL with inevitable relegation and you suggest he would have been our saviour?

Normally you would have to give Berg the rest of this season before being able to judge him on his performance.

In normal circumstances that would be fine - but the pressure is on Berg to get us promoted at the first time of asking. Personally I don't think that is possible this season with this squad and I think most Rovers fans can see that and accept that.(but only just).

The task is not just to get a good enough squad/team to win promotion it is also to make the team/squad/club sound enough to stay in the prem once we get there. No easy task for any manager.

We have to be prepared to give the club and HB enough time to do this. If it takes another season then so be it.

Better to build a strong club that survives than becoming a one-hit wonder and struggling and getting relegated again.
Promotion with the current squad is a non starter, and without substantial investment from the owners (track record is not encouraging) i'm afraid it would be a nightmare for the fans to watch. Whenever I watch a premiership game, and not necessarily the top teams, I despair at just how far Rovers are now off that standard. A veritable mountain to climb!!
I'd agree with that, the current Rovers team would get bummed into submission in the premier league.

I really wish certain moaners would stop being so negative about Berg. Clearly some have got overly used to calling for the manager's head every other hour. It has been a turbulent time at the club and I for one think that stability is what is needed now, even if Berg turns out to be a less-than-average manager and we spend the next few seasons in the Championship. Most of us go to Ewood to forget about the week's stresses, so lets make it an enjoyable event like it used to be and support the team and manager with a positive attitude.

Fully agree with that. It's going to take Berg another 5-6 games to find his best starting 11. He's got to work out what to do with some really erratic performers.

We've got a shout for the playoffs but think next season more realistic for promotion. Would Venkys keep the likes of Rhodes in that scenario?

Have we got a best starting eleven with this lot,because even the playoff,s seem a remote possibity at the moment,If we want to rid ourselves of some of these non-performers its going to cost in contract pay outs because I can't see anyone rushing in to sign them,and then are Venkys going to invest money for January purchases,I'm not holding my breath.

If Shebby the Snake begged hard enough he might just get Steve Kean back.
Hi Angry, I'm just curious but what did you like about Steve Kean ?
I didn't particularly like him but I did enjoy being top of the Championship before his last game in charge. I have consistently said that we should have kept him in place until we had a suitable replacement lined up but a combination of Shebby The Snake's interference and the crowd's intolerence led us into more knee jerk reaction and a manager, who I believe, quite objectively and dispassionately, to be no more quailfied or eqipped than the last one.
Didnt you enjoy more being 10th in the premier league before Kean took over? How can you give praise to a manager who after a few games and lucky results had us near the top of the championship when over two seasons previously he relegated us from the premier league. Its reverse logic and some fans are losing perspective. Kean was bad news, disillusionment at the current predicament is distorting fact and his ability. He was a despicable person.
I thought rabbits had big ears but you are not listening...........
.....perhaps the merlin side of your personality might open your ears and your mind. I have never said that I like Kean and yes, of course I enjoyed being 10th in the Premiership more than top of the Championship. I actually enjoyed being TOP of the Premiership but sadly we can not bring back Jack Walker or Ray Harford. If anything ws despicable around here it was the Walker Trust decision to sell the club to an organisation with neither the resources or capability to run a Premiership club. I stand by my assertion that we should have kept Kean until we had an experienced and credible replacement secured and the last seven games, and Berg's post match comments, have done nothing to change my mind.

The plain fact is that there isn't a good side in the Championship. The fact that we are so far off the pace just shows what 2 years of complete mismanagement have done. This is without doubt the worst Rovers squad in 25 years. If anyone thinks HB can turn this situation around in 5 or 6 games or half a season, they are living in cloud cuckoo land. We have far too many players not up to it, who will go nowhere whilst they still have a contract. It is going to take years to sort the mess out, even if we had owners with the stomach for it - which we have not.

But how many games do you give him to produce the goods? Venky's have gone on record with their 'minimum expectations' of promotion to the Premier League. Berg has been in charge for 7 games and won just one against effectively a league one side. What happens if you don't win at least one of the the next two? That would be one win in 9, is that long enough?

Steve Kean, muppet though he was, would have lead you to at least the play-offs. Unless Berg pulls his finger out you'll be struggling, and from what I've heard if you don't bounce straight back you'll be up sh*t creek financially.

Moaning and whinging and going on about Bergs points tally won't do an ounce of good. Berg is saddled with the team that Kean built. What we have to do is get behind the team and get as many points as possible until Berg can have sale of the century and get as much of the Kean era deadwood off the wage bill and hope like hell he gets some backing to bring some strength, leadership and quality in.
Don't judge Berg by this squad. It is a creation of Kean Venkys and the three stooges.

Hi Angry, I'm just curious but what did you like about Steve Kean ?
14 points in 7 games.Somebody else commented weve got to be carefull we dont through the baby out with he bath water.I think thats exactly what we have done.
Do you honestly believe the Rovers had any future under Kean ? The only direction we were heading under Kean was down.
Ok, he somehow managed to get 14 points from the first 7 games, but every Rovers supporter (well almost ) knew we were playing terrible.
Good riddance I say.

This lot haven't a chance of landing King Kean, he's saving himself for Real Madrid to show Jose what the real special one is like. The reason things didn't work out at Ewood is that we were just not worthy of him and his immense managerial talent. That's what Kean recons anyway.

I agree with you Harwoodstblue Kean took us down by selling off an entire first team. What would I give to have Emerton and Nelsen back not to mention Samba Kalanic and even Roberts and Keith Andrews. Kean was a fool and bordering on useless. What about Nzonzi, if kean had gone five weeks earlier he might still have been here but no, the egg headded deluded fool signs Murphy and Etuhu. Christ even I have more movement than murphy.
But there are them on here that see points and thats all they see. TBH Big sam played sh1t and won points as well. But I hated that too. We are all good at making decisions in hindsight.

RE OUR CURRENT NEW FANCY IDEAS FOR THE TEAM
Facts!

Worse results than Kean and Black for this season.

Please, I am not trying to be patronizing its just that we, the fans have been conned one to many times.

What about our squad and our poor defence....NO no no!

A good team is all about good management of your resources. Having some 'new fancy ideas' amount to nothing more than a CHANGE, and in the case of our team a change for the worse with Berg.

How many more rotten results do we need to prove the fact that we still don't have a proper manager. Is it all perhaps just bad luck....I think not!

Fair enough except with the losses that the club is incuring due to the large wage bill Kean left us with and the low crowds, the club cannot survive for another two years in the Championship. It's promotion this year or administrtion next year. You can accuse me of negativity and scare mongering but look into it yourselve if you doubt what I say.

I can't believe that drunkard bag of lies Keans name would even be mentioned on here ever again. Are you people for real? A man who was a fundamental part in the meltdown and destruction of 20 year legacy and people compare his record to Berg! His greed and denial are a huge part of why we are where we are!

Berg has got to be given time to show his worth and get his own team. Too many Rovers fans have been spoiled and can't accept where we are at this moment. It's hard to swallow which I accept and we were average to say the least yesterday but look at the culprits. All Kean signings. All lightweights who couldn't be more unsuited to this league......

I say back the Berg, stop moaning and support the team.

I'll go so far as to say on this matter over the defensive coach currently employed at BRFC - just who the hell was he applauding walking out onto the pitch yesterday ?

Or more to the point who was attracting his attention ?

Such is life when your dreams of a hero are shattered by the accusations that have spilled over into the public domain making it even worse that the job he his employed to do performs shakily to say the least.

I doubt very much that that which as spilled over will be forgotten in many a mind thus his only contrition could lay in his ability assisting in steering this club back onto calmer waters, but that said, I am of the mind that his job can only have been made even more difficult with the disclosures ?

For me I cringe each time I see him walking out in our clubs colors knowing what I know in contrast to that which I viewed him all those years ago.

For the record I would prefer Berg to replace the current coach with a fresh and clean slate coach !

But how many games do you give him to produce the goods? Venky's have gone on record with their 'minimum expectations' of promotion to the Premier League. Berg has been in charge for 7 games and won just one against effectively a league one side. What happens if you don't win at least one of the the next two? That would be one win in 9, is that long enough? Steve Kean, muppet though he was, would have lead you to at least the play-offs. Unless Berg pulls his finger out you'll be struggling, and from what I've heard if you don't bounce straight back you'll be up sh*t creek financially.
I dont think you can say what Kean could achieve with any certainty other than to drag a team down. People are making a massive oversight when making judgements about Kean. Those outside of Ewood are judging his ability on a handfull of games at the beginning of a season in the league below where we started. We were lucky in most of those games and those watching could see where we were heading. Looking at the bigger picture, he dragged us down from 10th in the PL, fell out with important players, put them in detention, tactically useless and that is one reason why the team are now struggling. Dunn, Ollson, Murphy have all muted that the training wasnt up to scratch under Kean. Who can forget the non-show against Spurs and then Kean's deluded summary of the game after? This man that some are now suggesting we would be better off with, is a toad. His only achievement is to slither into a job he wasnt equipped to do, stay in it despite the damage he was causing, manipulate the national media, worm his way into the favour of the owner, slag his former boss off on youtube whilst on Rovers business, struggle to win more than a handful of games in the PL with inevitable relegation and you suggest he would have been our saviour? Would you have him at Burnley - honestly?
Just watch the ManUnited match we won on Dec31, 2010.

is good enough to say. SK is not bad choice.

is our big players EGO put blackburn down.

I agree Spurs match was a turning point where SK got F**up, no choice from bench to support weak players. then the wigen and chelsea.........all in a raw we lost. Think If we will those three, we will still in prem.

Who ever is the manger, IF players are not show there strong LEGS with passion to lead, Blackburn cannot WIN matchs. reason is simple - lazy effort in last 10mts -we lost almost 10 matchs, It happen from our first match with Ispitch(own goal from Lowe).

If Shebby the Snake begged hard enough he might just get Steve Kean back.
Hi Angry, I'm just curious but what did you like about Steve Kean ?
I didn't particularly like him but I did enjoy being top of the Championship before his last game in charge. I have consistently said that we should have kept him in place until we had a suitable replacement lined up but a combination of Shebby The Snake's interference and the crowd's intolerence led us into more knee jerk reaction and a manager, who I believe, quite objectively and dispassionately, to be no more quailfied or eqipped than the last one.
What?
knee jerk reaction, he was a complete failure, and massive luck was the only reason Rovers were top of the Championship, Keen was for his long reign in charge a liar, and a underhanded lout. Mr Berg has not been anything like as low down as the clown Keen, you have a short memory.

Keen was very lucky to have such an abysmal owner in place that let him carry on downgrading the players and the club for so long. Keep him in place, that is the most ridiculous thing I have heard.

Go and sit on the naughty step.

But how many games do you give him to produce the goods? Venky's have gone on record with their 'minimum expectations' of promotion to the Premier League. Berg has been in charge for 7 games and won just one against effectively a league one side. What happens if you don't win at least one of the the next two? That would be one win in 9, is that long enough? Steve Kean, muppet though he was, would have lead you to at least the play-offs. Unless Berg pulls his finger out you'll be struggling, and from what I've heard if you don't bounce straight back you'll be up sh*t creek financially.
I dont think you can say what Kean could achieve with any certainty other than to drag a team down. People are making a massive oversight when making judgements about Kean. Those outside of Ewood are judging his ability on a handfull of games at the beginning of a season in the league below where we started. We were lucky in most of those games and those watching could see where we were heading. Looking at the bigger picture, he dragged us down from 10th in the PL, fell out with important players, put them in detention, tactically useless and that is one reason why the team are now struggling. Dunn, Ollson, Murphy have all muted that the training wasnt up to scratch under Kean. Who can forget the non-show against Spurs and then Kean's deluded summary of the game after? This man that some are now suggesting we would be better off with, is a toad. His only achievement is to slither into a job he wasnt equipped to do, stay in it despite the damage he was causing, manipulate the national media, worm his way into the favour of the owner, slag his former boss off on youtube whilst on Rovers business, struggle to win more than a handful of games in the PL with inevitable relegation and you suggest he would have been our saviour?

Just watch the ManUnited match we won on Dec31, 2010.

is good enough to say. SK is not bad choice.

is our big players EGO put blackburn down.

I agree Spurs match was a turning point where SK got F**up, no choice from bench to support weak players. then the wigen and chelsea.........all in a raw we lost. Think If we will those three, we will still in prem.

Kean brought players into this club to line his own pockets, not to benefit the team. He allowed seasoned professionals to leave and be replaced by lightweight non-entities.

This is, and remains a weak, poor squad, lacking in quality.

We will not be promoted with this squad this season.

HB win with a poor team in this championship, I am not considering that is a win. But Steve really work hard to keep us in the top of the league.

Improvement action plan nothing with Berg. He is going to just another game. same saga goes on and we will get only disappointed news after every game. Grip 15 players to win or leave the club.

I have some advice for you: a) read a book/go back to school - anything to improve your grasp of the English language b) go and support Burnley - you obviously have no passion for this club and no real knowledge of football
Well said. This Matthew chap is surely a Venky plant or relative. Its post after post of nauseating support for the idiot Kean.
I love this game, Blackburn is so so close to my heart(Blue and White army). I started attach with this club from last prem season. So for me - S.Kean did good in ground. but he fail to keep the promise to stay in prem and with fans. Any way, I love to see our players fight back to getup on each match My english is not great - excuse me for that. I have no connection with this owners group of any associate. Let me clear with people who drop crap into this comments. for me if u read, then is fine, u correct and read with ur style, See u always with comments. Keep in touch......
Borat, you are a bigger fool than all the plonkers who wanted Sam Allardyce out, and by God, that is something. I now note that those whose credibility evaporated with the collapse of Rovers and the rise of the Hammers love to state "it is easy with hindsight". This club is still sliding post Allardyce and it has not stopped sliding yet.

I cannot for the life of me believe that some idiotic morons are actually defending the odius kean, let alone ignoring his abysmal record , the only reason that he gained the points initially was that he inherited a mid table Premiership squad, but he soon f#cked that up didn't he ? , In Bergs case however the complete opposite can be said about the squad that he has started with. It has taken a couple of years worth of mismanagement and rumoured financial irregularities to bring us down to the level we are at presently, so to even dream that Berg had any chance of making any real difference in such a short time is bordering on insanity . Berg was very few fans choice, but the owners as usual shortchanged the supporters. We have Berg now ,and most of us believe him to be a honourable and truthfull man who most probably has been led to belive that he will have funds available in January, although whether that proves to be true remains to be seen. I for one intend to give him my support 100% whilst he is manager . I just hope that he is allowed to run the team without interference and backed , so that we may, for the first time since the venkys circus came to town , regain some of the pride back in a Club that we have burnt deep in our hearts ...... R.T.I.D.... since 1969 ......

Henning, you were here when we won the league. Surely you must remember. The team was built around Shearer and whoever played up front with him.
A strong midfield, 2 wingers and a solid defence.
Rhodes can be the new Shearer.
Please find someone to play up front with him and then feed them.
You're absolutely spot on, couldn't agree with you more!
Can you ring Henning up and tell him, someone needs to.

Well said R in R and absolutely spot on with your comments.
Berg wouldn't have been my choice, but given the absolutely unbalanced, cobbled together squad that he inherited from Kean the man has a monumental task on his hands.
I will be very surprised also if he has much support, if any at all, from Venkys during the January transfer window. Such is their penny pinching record.

It's not just 6 points from 21 for Berg...it's 8 points from his last 51 available!!! He's only there to dictate transfer policy (hence the poor run of form which would require transfers and more agent kickbacks). The real culprits in all this are much closer to home than Pune in India!! They just want the masses to believe Venky's are responsible to make their lives/jobs easier in asset stripping.

I agree, but the big worry is this;

Have Venkys given us,BRFC, this season to get promoted, then that's it, you're on your own?

Will they continue to support the club by footing an ever larger bill (parachute payments drop, remember) or just cut their losses and leave us to fend for ourselves. They are not the billionaires we have been led to believe and there will come a point when they say "Enough".

Do we in fact have more than one season?

The club is in a mess. From the day Venky's took over some idiotic decisions were advised and made, on whose advice unsure? The sacking of Sam and the appointment of Kean being two of them and the dismantling of a decent Premier side and replacing with vastly inferior players being another. Were the club goes from here is unsure, clearly the current team is not good enough to compete for promotion, mid table at best this season. As to the future I cannot see any hope of getting back to the pre Venky’s position at present in the immediate future. Quite simply they had a chance and they blew it, big time. Supporters buy out, it won’t happen and would not be sustainable if it did. Support dropping and why not, who wants to watch mediocre headless chicken stuff in an inferior division, with inferior players, and all self- inflicted!
However always look on the bright side, we could be Burnley!

Well said. This Matthew chap is surely a Venky plant or relative. Its post after post of nauseating support for the idiot Kean.
I love this game, Blackburn is so so close to my heart(Blue and White army). I started attach with this club from last prem season. So for me - S.Kean did good in ground. but he fail to keep the promise to stay in prem and with fans. Any way, I love to see our players fight back to getup on each match My english is not great - excuse me for that. I have no connection with this owners group of any associate. Let me clear with people who drop crap into this comments. for me if u read, then is fine, u correct and read with ur style, See u always with comments. Keep in touch......
Borat, you are a bigger fool than all the plonkers who wanted Sam Allardyce out, and by God, that is something. I now note that those whose credibility evaporated with the collapse of Rovers and the rise of the Hammers love to state "it is easy with hindsight". This club is still sliding post Allardyce and it has not stopped sliding yet.
Yep, big sam is showing some positive and courage to stand for top fight. He proves he is better and lucky too.

I agree, but the big worry is this;

Have Venkys given us,BRFC, this season to get promoted, then that's it, you're on your own?

Will they continue to support the club by footing an ever larger bill (parachute payments drop, remember) or just cut their losses and leave us to fend for ourselves. They are not the billionaires we have been led to believe and there will come a point when they say "Enough".

Do we in fact have more than one season?
Regards the parachute payments we have two seasons at 16 million each and then two seasons at eight million each season. So yes I think it is reasonable to believe that we definitely have more than one season still with our owners.

After all the Venkys know the huge rewards that are available for promotion (80 million per season) so I reckon they will be here for a quite a while yet, even if profit is indeed their motive....

Plus one other factor.....it took us almost three years to sell the club (in quite decent fettle) to the Venkys, so how long do you think ti would take the Venkys to find someone to take the club on now?

Yes AGREE give Berg a bit more time/space ,but what in hell`s name is Crawling Hendry still doing being employed at Rovers as "' specialist defensive coach"' the guy when manager at Blackpool LOST 34 games out of the 39 games when he was manager there ,Blackpool got rid of champagne T.V.star sycophant Hendry and brought in Simon Grayson 7 games before the seasons end, Grayson saved Blackpool from relegation by winning 6 out of their last 7 games to keep them from relegation, so why are Rovers employing a proven loser as coach, oh I forgot he is a local hero, granny swindler,women beater , bully .
if you are going to try and make a point try and make it a believable one....Colin Hendry's record at Blackpool as manager reads:

Games 62
Games Won 18
Games Lost 25
Games Drawn 19

a similar win record I think to Kean so very poor - but he certainly didn't lose 34 out of 39 as you lied about in your post..are u smelly in disguise or RC? Or both?
OK Colin , but you can``t count reserve games, and FACT IS WHEN YO WERE MANAGER OF BLACKPOOL , the reason you got sacked was they were doomed /in the relegation zone, it was Simon Grayson who took over after you that turned them around , you were taking them down , you, Hendry your record at managing/coaching is pathetic , and your personal life is a disgrace.

Doom mongers and Hendry stalking name changers are up early this morning, this constant barrage against hendy's name is uncalled for. Everyone knows what has gone on so why keep going on about it. its boring the arse off of me.
What do you think our best formation would be? what areas do we need to change. Have we got enough quality and do we need more grafters to see us improve.
And to all the doom mongers and anti bergers.
naff off.

Yes, true, but if you know anything about bankruptcy ,the first people in to make someone bankrupt get priority in insolvency fee`s , in Hendry`s case he was made bankrupt by a gambling company for 30,000 pounds , but he went bankrupt owing millions and it seems according to the webpage below Hendry lied to borrow money from ordinary old people to fuel his gambling addiction.

So what happened to the millions he freed up by re-mortgaging his properties?? What a shame he - and his chum from PNE - couldn't have put the money into the "club he loves" so much....instead of "Venky's". Then again...it was a no brainer for "Venky's"...they stand to make a fortune from the club getting relegated from the PL.
Yes, true, but if you know anything about bankruptcy ,the first people in to make someone bankrupt get priority in insolvency fee`s , in Hendry`s case he was made bankrupt by a gambling company for 30,000 pounds , but he went bankrupt owing millions and it seems according to the webpage below Hendry lied to borrow money from ordinary old people to fuel his gambling addiction.

I think we expected Berg to be Superman and turn round the two years of decay in 2 weeks. He is intelligent,knows the club, wants what the supporters want.
He is not rushing in headlong. there are many problems, don't lose sight of the facts, he inherited, Kean's team.

I'd like to agree with you, but you're wrong. Like it or not, we are a 'mediocre' championship side now. We have no right to be hammering anybody in this division, except maybe the likes of Peterborough.

I've had a season ticket in the Blackburn End for the last 16 years so it makes a rather strange Burnley fan!

I'm just a realist. Sorry if I don't share your (strange) view where we are apparently the Barcelona of the championship. The truth is we are not one of the strongest sides in this league. I'd say we are in the top 10, but that certainly doesn't mean we should be 'hammering' mid-table sides every week. If that's your view, then you will be very disappointed this season.

I am a BRFC fan and hopefully will continue to have high hopes for our team.
In my dreams I still cant.... cant get away from thinking BRFC....are a premiership club...!!!
But everyday, reality seems to sink in..
Were supposed to have the possibly worst squad in the the football league, the worst owners, the worst fans who are mostly negative and unsupportive of the team and not forgetting the worst managers of late.
I'd like to agree with many like meself who believe that BRFC should be head and shoulders above the rest and be back in the Premiership sooner rather then later.
But reality is its a tough season ahead of us.
We simply dont have a midfield.
Our midfield is tooo nice and soft.
We have no winners.
We have elderly over the hill past it players.
We simply cannot win an
We dont have any enforcers to achieve our goal, we dont have any midfield general to dictate play,
Robbo has to hoof the ball to the strikers and hope for the best.
The defenders get no cover from midfield.
Cant we see the problem is our midfield.
I would reccomend we need some hard tackling midfield generals and I know we need to find them.
I can think of Jermain Jones and Joey Barton to give us the bite and ferocity required.
what do you think..?
who have you seen out there that can make a difference to our season.
For sure we will need some good players, preferably young and capable.
We simply cannot play & win with these elderly players.
