Berg looking for first win at Ewood Park

Lancashire Telegraph: Henning Berg Henning Berg

HENNING Berg is still waiting for his first home win as Blackburn Rovers boss, but he has seen enough in his side’s performances to be hopeful he can break his Ewood Park duck against Cardiff City tonight.

Rovers host the Championship leaders in front of the Sky Sports cameras, having slipped up in their three games at Ewood since Berg was appointed as manager.

A draw against Birmingham was followed by back-to-back home losses against Millwall and Bolton, but the Norwegian believes their displays merited more points than they picked up.

“That is football,” Berg said of his wait for a home victory.

“Sometimes you go through spells like that but based on performances and chances for and against, the Millwall game could have easily gone our way. Millwall had some fantastic shooting to win the game.

“We had more chances and shots on goal than them overall, even though at times maybe they played a little higher level in their best periods of the game.

“Bolton started the game much better than us and we conceded a sloppy first goal.

“Then they scored from a free kick, we got one back and were close to getting another back. On another day with the chances we had we could have got a result.

“We had more shots on goal than Bolton but still didn’t win the game.

“That can happen.

“In football this can happen, you can go through spells where you don’t play well and you win games.

That was maybe the case early in the season when Rovers picked up points without producing too many convincing performances, and Berg believes victory is more than possible against Cardiff.

The Bluebirds have won all 10 of their home games this term but have triumphed only three times on the road.

“We are playing the league leaders, they have set the standard and it will be a good test for us,” Berg said.

“We have some very good young players in the team and how they play against the best team in this league, it will be interesting to see how they cope with that.

“At the same time we are at home, we are looking to play well and we are looking to win the game.

“We are looking to impose ourselves on Cardiff, even though they are the league leaders.

“We have played some good teams at home, Millwall were on a great run and we have played Bolton, so it’s not like we are going to sit back and watch what they are doing.”

Craig Bellamy is expected to start up front for Cardiff and Rovers midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen is aware of the Welshman’s threat to his former club.

Pedersen played alongside Bellamy at Ewood Park during the 2005/06 season, when he experienced the 33-year-old’s fiery personality at close hand.

Bellamy is well known for having opinions but Pedersen said: “I had no problem with that, you can say whatever you want.

“If I don’t like it, it goes in one ear and out the other! I think it’s the personality, when you go into the game it’s game mode, you go into like a trance.

“I think that’s where you can see people looking so arrogant and the worst guy in the world on the pitch but when you actually meet them outside they’re a nice guy, very calm and very quiet.

“The main thing is when he played for us he was a good player.

“He gives Cardiff things with his pace and his experience.

“But it’s not only about him, the reason they are doing so well is because of the team.”

gonna be a tough game under the floodlights against a decent Cardiff side, which should add to the atmosphere..wish I was there for it!

No score predictions this week but we simply have to win this game to show that we have a realistic and credible chance of finishing in or around the top six this season.

I remember being at Ewood when we were in the 2nd Divison (the first season we came down from the First Division in 66/67) and we absolutely hammered Cardiff that day scoring four goals. Be nice to see a repeat of that....

That view of the Bolton game sounds a bit like Kean Positives. It was rubbish until near the end when it was too late anyway. This group of players need to start playing as a team and to their best ability. They are underachieving in my view. It's not clicked yet and I think the midfield pairing is partly the problem. Etuhu isnt good enough and its time Berg acknowledged that. Murphy would have faired better staying in the PL. He is too slow for the pace and style of the championship. We need a solid engine and that would relieve pressure on the back four. A central midfielder and full backs are vital in the transfer window

Going to be a tough game but we need 3 points! We have to attack in order to defend because Cardiff can score and shut up shop.
My team for tonight would be;
Robbo
Henley Dann Givet Olsson
CKR Lowe Pedersen King
Rhodes Rochina

I think this line up is risky but he who dares Rodders!

Certainly don't fancy our chances tonight. Mediocre performances and results recently don't help going into a game against league leaders. A team looking for promotion should be looking for about 5-7 points out of the last 3 games we've had, not 1.

Like FR, I too was at the Cardiff match in 1966 when we gave them a tonking. Oh boy! Did we all think we were going to make a quick return. The trouble is I was at Molineux the very week after when we got ripped apart ourselves and got beat 0-4 by the Wolves. We then went on a long winless run if I remember rightly. The supporters song then was "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones, the words of which were adapted of course.
Satisfaction was not obtained that year as that win kickstarted the Wolves and they went up at our expense. I only hope a big win in the next match or two kickstarts our season.
There is safety in nostalgia. There are no surprises.

Mr Berg isn't really cutting it in the Championship is he. He might surprise people and get his act together but it's highly unlikely, he's a poor manager.

You begged for Steve Keans sacking, you begged for an experienced manager but good old Shebby Singh gave you Henning. And what have you achieved since? You should have stuck with Kean.

that was a cracking season Bazzer...even though we were freshly relegated (due to the polio stuff) everyone was buzzing still from England's World Cup win just a couple of weeks earlier. Plus John Connelly and Barry Hole signed in the close season and then we started off great and won our first three games easily and won five of our first seven games. I think we were secvond or third then - but then as you say Wolves hammered us 4-0 and we lost the next couple of games after that (inc the away game at Preston) and we never got that winning streak together again. Still managed to finish 4th behind Carlisle and Wolves and Coventry who went up. Good season but we were on a downward spiral...

No we shouldnt. Berg has not got results but the largest majority of us would not swap him for Kean. Its his damage Berg is left with sorting out. I know you are just having a wind up but its boring.

He is. Kean must have left his script in the "bulls##t for the fans when it's going pear-shaped" file. At least he didnt leave his slithery lip-licking tongue, sweaty little lying face, monthly ticket to Pune, Dunce's hat for naughty players, 7th Dan, 500 letters a week and vouchers for Beckham and Ronaldinho!

They walk into it everytime they post a comment about Rovers. Burnley news articles dont generate more than 2 posts from their fans and usually none. s. Cant be a bigger statement about which is the more important club than that in my view.

thing is, you have described the reaction of Arsenal, City, QPR, Chelsea, Newcastle fans. Iv heard the same from all of those clubs fans in recent weeks. Its not behaviour unique to Blackburn. It is uniquely highlighted about Blackburn by the media though.

The supporters song then was "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones, the words of which were adapted of course.
Satisfaction was not obtained that year as that win kickstarted the Wolves and they went up at our expense. I only hope a big win in the next match or two kickstarts our season.
There is safety in nostalgia. There are no surprises.
that was a cracking season Bazzer...even though we were freshly relegated (due to the polio stuff) everyone was buzzing still from England's World Cup win just a couple of weeks earlier. Plus John Connelly and Barry Hole signed in the close season and then we started off great and won our first three games easily and won five of our first seven games. I think we were secvond or third then - but then as you say Wolves hammered us 4-0 and we lost the next couple of games after that (inc the away game at Preston) and we never got that winning streak together again. Still managed to finish 4th behind Carlisle and Wolves and Coventry who went up. Good season but we were on a downward spiral...
Give us a goal,give us a goal,Barry hole,Barry hole, was the song that we used to sing.Yes we despairatly need a win tonight as we are already becoming adrift.

That was a year before my first live Rovers game.....I do remember that Coventry team they used to have black and white tops to thier stockings, funny what you remember.

I met up with Bobby Gould a few months back in Portishead, great guy, I got him confused with Keith Fear thought he'd played for Rovers-he hasn't....manager of the Wimbledon team that beat Liverpool in the FA Cup final

Thanks Noddy, but my memory is burned with the pain of that season. Two did indeed go up, and Carlisle pipped us for third at the death. But of course, that was academic. The writing was on the wall when we blew it against Coventry. In addition to Fergie getting sent off, John Barton dropped the ball invitingly for Gould to score.
In the four games against the promoted two we did not score a single goal. In a parallel to today we snapped up a striker from Huddersfield Town who was going to shoot us up. Allan Gilliver. Injuries, as I am sure you will recall, put paid to his Rovers career.
I remember the Barry Hole song. Don't you remember "der der, der der derr..The Blackburn Rovers.. der der derr.."?

Hi Noddy - it was me not Bazzer that said that - and I do know only two teams went-up in those days! It is just the way I you read it or I wrote it - we did finish behind Carlisle who were third (and Wolves and Coventry who were promoted). We lost both games to Coventry....in the one at Ewood did Stuart Metcalfe get involved with Trevor Hockey and Hockey got sent off? Or was that another season?

My nostalgia bug is running. Barry Hole came from Cardiff City, another link to tonight's game.
My first Rovers v Cardiff was about 1958, a cup replay at Ewood, 2-0 for Rovers played an afternoon because Rovers didn't have floodlights then -we had to skip off school to see the game.
It will be good to see Bellers who had a fabulous season for us under Sparky. Though our best Welshmen remain Mike England (ironic name for a great Taff and who still has a wood business in Hoghton) and the peerless Roy Vernon, if anyone remembers him.

Frenchie, are you referring to the Billy Wilson-Johnny Vincent punch up at St. Andrews? Trevor Hockey never played for Coventry, he was B'ham through and through I believe.

Trevor Hockey went to Sheffield United and because of his thick untrimmed beard become known as "werewolf". He was an agressive and effective tackler and when he got the ball his job was to give it to Tony Currie who went on to play for Leeds and England. United were top of the old first with an unbeaten start to the season, mid 70s ??
On a sadder note, Rovers demotion in 1965-66 was another "too good to go down" squad, whcih should have immediately gone back up. Unluckily they didn't - though on a top six play-off, as we have now, would have stood a good chance.The squad then fell apart and we become a yo-yo team in the 70s, in and out of 2nd and 3rd. It was in that period that a young Stuart Metcalfe emerged as a good and faithful midfielder.

You take 600 to man city on a premiership game, and then , against all odds, take 3000 to a championship game at Burnley, tell us again, who's cup final is it?
And an extra 6000 Dingles turn up to watch Rovers ,when are they due back? at your next cup final?

Hope it's not as long as 34 years FCDingle!! ha ha!
34 years is of course true....however it's sad to see that this is the only thing Wovers have got left. Hold on to your little piece of history for as long as you can. Next you'll all be harping on again about winning the PL....yawn,yawn time for bed said zebberdee
