Blackburn Rovers boss wants quality not quantity

HENNING Berg believes he will be allowed to improve his squad in the January transfer window – but insists he will be only bring in players who will improve the team.

The Blackburn Rovers boss is already on the look out for fresh faces next month but is adamant players won’t be brought in ‘just for the sake of it’ and says the club will remain within their financial limits.

Talks continue about changes to Henning Berg’s backroom staff, with certain personnel potentially leaving the club imminently. Rovers are expected to talk to Eric Black, Iain Brunskill and Bobby Mimms about their futures at the club today.

But Rovers are also looking at what they can do on the field to improve their Championship performances.

Berg has only enjoyed one win from his first eight games in charge, leaving Rovers four points adrift of the play-offs, and he says the opening of business at the turn of the year as an opportunity to help their efforts.

“It is natural that every manager in the world is assessing his squad and seeing if it is possible to improve his squad. We will be the same,” said Berg.

“If we can improve this team within our financial budget of course we will do it. Our goal is to get back in the Premier League and the January window it is a possibility to do something, if we find the right players for this team.

“I think we have to improve. At the top level we are good but at the moment we are a little bit indifferent. We need to play at our top level for longer periods.

“We have a lot of young players at this club. It is a very, very young team with potential so it is natural the performances are a little bit up and down.

“But we want to be promoted and that is why we are looking to improve. If we can improve the players that are here we will do that, if we can improve by making some changes in and out then we will do that. It has to be within our financial budget and it has to be players who can improve the team.

“Of course we are assessing things as we go on and we will make sure we do the right things in the future. Improving the team, improving the squad, making sure we put us in a position where we can be promoted.”

While Rovers will be looking to add to their squad, it is also likely a few of the fringe players will be allowed to leave to free up the wage bill.

Meanwhile, Berg has hailed the importance of securing teenager defender Adam Henley on a deal at the club until 2017.

He said: “Adam has done really well. We saw him do well at Anfield and Old Trafford last season. When he came back into the team he has showed those games were not a fluke.

“He showed he is a talented young right back and if he keeps playing well he will stay in the team. We are very happy we signed him on a longer contract to make sure we keeps the players we think we can improve and can be even better.

“Even though he had a year and a half left on his deal, with players you think can develop to be top players, you want them on long contracts to make sure if someone comes in they have to pay a lot of money to get them.”

Get it sorted Henning, Time is of the essence and the January window looms.

No more forwards, we need to strengthen defence and build up midfield. Everyone from the fans to the management know what needs to be done.

Time for more action and less words.

It's like this! Stop going on about promotion it's not in our intrest at the moment. We need to stop shipping goals to easily and get rid of the dead wood before we can start even thinking about promotion. After last Friday I'm more worried about staying up than going up. We have been left in a total mess we all know it ain't going to be sorted over night but we defo need to start stepping up to the plate.

The problem is more about midfield competing & keeping the ball. Honestly think that promotion can be secured with the centre halves we have, we just need to release the pressure they are under because far too many times we are overrun in midfield with little pressure on the ball. We need two Centre Midfielders with engines and composure on the ball. Palacios from Stoke has been mentioned; he would be a start.

I hate this quote " It has to be within our financial budget and it has to be players who can improve the team." Only with money will you get players who will improve the team! So if you're telling us there is a financial budget in my eyes you're as good as telling us we're not going to improve the team. I like Berg but recently his comments have sounded more like they're straight out of steve keans book of ignorance.

'It's a very, very young team'

Yeah with spring 'chickens' such as Robinson, Givet, Dunn, Pederson, Murphy and Gomez in the side then of course they are a young team.

I think Berg is a better long-term prospect as an agent than Kean ever was.

The king is dead - long live the king.

This is all Kean's fault bringing all these players in the summer were not ready to compete for a first team place which blocked good young players coming through, But I do believe that it will take Henning a good 12 months to sort this mess out and Venky's must back him, On the subject of team selection I think colin should be the target man because he is very strong and holds the ball up well, Vucevic should be given the chance and surely we cannot afford Givet being out of the team, we desperately need the midfield sorting out which ha been awful since we lost Jones and Inzonzi played, we dont have the players at the moment so we must hope that Henning will get the right players to give balance to the team. On the defence Dann and Hanley don.t seem to play well together but Hanley seems to play well with Givet, Etuhu is a nightmare is this guy on drugs or what, I have never seen a player who is so slow and unaware of whats going on around him absolutely useless. Untill we get some, I like Rochina but against Bolton Iwas so disappointed in his attitude as though he didn,t really want to be there. I hope Henning can sort it out but I cant see us making the play-offs we just haven,t got the right sqad yet.

The directors of Venkys London will not give information regarding £3.3million which is unaccounted for but say more finance will be needed in order to continue and there is a funding shortfall. Venky's India insist they have the funds, but there is no proof of this also if they do not achieve promotion to the Premier League contingency plans are in place.

I think the penny is finally dropping with most fans.
£5m turnover this year, part of parachute payments spent on JR. Still no actual outlay of cash from Venkys in thier tenure @ ewood. Another window with the usual tag lines "not rushing into this, prudent moves for the club, only improove the squad, bide our time, not pay over the odds", same every window and it all translates to, we'll put our hand in our pocket if we get a bargain, otherwise we won't be shelling out.

Some of the players in under Venkys:

Murphy
Etuhu
Orr
Nuno Gomez
Hoards of Portugese
Markus Ollson
Rhodes

Now apart from Rhodes name one that cost over £1m. Now name one who's "improved the team". The fear was originally when Venkys took over, will they invest money? And the answer is clearly no. The PL invested more than they have by giving us parachute payments for Rhodes. If you combine this with the fact that we have sold players like Nico Kalinic for £6m, Phil Jones for £18m, Samba for £10m, Yak for £1m, you really can't A) wonder why we got relegated B) Expect Venkys to spend money next window. They have asset stripped the club and done such a good job of it that only a few people have actually noticed.

There are more than a few noticed pocket filling at Ewood, but when they do, venk's tribe come on here slagging anyone off that suggests it.

As onlookers we can only rewind and see how they have taken us down.

Whislt it's happening people are suggesting many things, some a little stretched, but the tribe are quickly off the mark to scotch wrong doing rumors. This blurs the issue and makes it difficult to get the true picture.

The bottom line is; We were a quality unit, all the best has been isolated and sold for whatever, some have been shipped out through the side door, no one of any decency would come to this outfit, so they got rejects and just to prove to idiots that they weren't asset stripping they got JR.

It doesn't help when they put people with known low moral standards in high positions.
Whichever Manager came in would need lots of luck to succeed, the club is ruined.
In my opinion Berg is a better Man than Kean, but nobody steps aside and waves you through in football so it will take a long time if there is going to be success.

The Club is less than half of what it was when they arrived, in all departments.

Don't PANIC Henning because Venky's are financially because we are reportedly one of the biggest spenders in the Championship and may soon be fighting to save our Champoinship status ( a far cry from the Premiership last year ) Everybody is right about the midfield, one tries but has lost his touch and the other is lazy and don't really care. We need proven championship or Premier players with energy, steel, creativeness and not past it and after that you need to show tactical awareness of which we have not seen so far. Now that you have leaked that your going to sack your backroom staff you wont be able to blame them in future. I dont think Black should be sacked though, he seemed to be the only one hurting big style on Friday and his points tally was ok when in charge. Anyway Henning I have no doubt Shebby will sort you out I can just imagine him acting like a mad Army General coming to work with his tin hat on in order to dodge all the muck and bullets flying about.

£5m turnover this year, part of parachute payments spent on JR. Still no actual outlay of cash from Venkys in thier tenure @ ewood. Another window with the usual tag lines "not rushing into this, prudent moves for the club, only improove the squad, bide our time, not pay over the odds", same every window and it all translates to, we'll put our hand in our pocket if we get a bargain, otherwise we won't be shelling out.

Some of the players in under Venkys:

Murphy
Etuhu
Orr
Nuno Gomez
Hoards of Portugese
Markus Ollson
Rhodes

Now apart from Rhodes name one that cost over £1m. Now name one who's "improved the team". The fear was originally when Venkys took over, will they invest money? And the answer is clearly no. The PL invested more than they have by giving us parachute payments for Rhodes. If you combine this with the fact that we have sold players like Nico Kalinic for £6m, Phil Jones for £18m, Samba for £10m, Yak for £1m, you really can't A) wonder why we got relegated B) Expect Venkys to spend money next window. They have asset stripped the club and done such a good job of it that only a few people have actually noticed.
There are more than a few noticed pocket filling at Ewood, but when they do, venk's tribe come on here slagging anyone off that suggests it.

As onlookers we can only rewind and see how they have taken us down.

Whislt it's happening people are suggesting many things, some a little stretched, but the tribe are quickly off the mark to scotch wrong doing rumors. This blurs the issue and makes it difficult to get the true picture.

The bottom line is; We were a quality unit, all the best has been isolated and sold for whatever, some have been shipped out through the side door, no one of any decency would come to this outfit, so they got rejects and just to prove to idiots that they weren't asset stripping they got JR.

It doesn't help when they put people with known low moral standards in high positions.
Whichever Manager came in would need lots of luck to succeed, the club is ruined.
In my opinion Berg is a better Man than Kean, but nobody steps aside and waves you through in football so it will take a long time if there is going to be success.

The Club is less than half of what it was when they arrived, in all departments.
So anybody who disagrees with you is working for Venky's? Grow up, you're acting as childish as the majorty of Burnley fans that dedicate their lives to Blackburn Rovers news.

Quotes from KPMG report:-
The owner of Blackburn Rovers has warned "significant funding" will be required to run the club over the next 18 months and KPMG have raised concerns after receiving limited information from directors about the clubs finances.
Venky's London Ltd said "The amount of additional funding required will be dependent on the net proceeds of any player trading and bank facilities.
The report which covers the 18month period to 31 March 2012 said turnover was £80.4m while the club had made £20.4m in net profit on disposal of players. Pre-tax profit was £35,212.
However the clubs auditors at KPMG said information related to an investmentheld by the group worth £3.3m was "limited", and management was "unable to provide documentation relating to the financial position and performance of the company" in which the investment was made.
The annual report added " We have not obtained all the information and explanations that we consider necessary for the purpose of our audit, and we are unable to determine whether adequate accounting records have been kept.
Blackburn Rovers had not responded to a request for comment.

Henning, sounds a lot like a statement from Kean not so long ago!

I don't think the issue is with bringing in the right players, it's more getting rid off the current crop of players who are simply not good enough for even the Championship, hence the financial limits.

Judging by recent performances it's quality and quantity we need, i.e. a centre half who can command the box, a holding midfielder who can tackle, a centre midfielder who can get forward, 2 wingers who can cross it and a striker who can compliment Rhodes. That's all though, apart from that we're quite good.

Well he will be buying at least 11 players then. This squad is unbalanced, and has very low commitment, so anything could improve things. If Berg and Hendry - two top class defenders - cannot stop the players we have from bluderinmg around then we do need and overhaul. Kean bought badly and Venkys sold well(to line their pockets) and we are now paying for it. League 1, with this set of players, looks more likely than promotion. It would also look as though he is to wield the axe to some of the backroom staff. That too is a step in the right direction, especially anyone Kean took on, they may be suspect. Give Berg a chance, he cannot undo all the harm that Venky's and Kean have caused overnight or over a season. It could take some time.

I think I would welcome it too RPC. Martin Olsson is best when going forward and attacking - but a bit of a liability defending at RB this season especially. Maybe he can take brother Marcus with him, as with Nunes and King and Pedersen surely we have enough cover in that position anyway? Not sure what Stoke would want for Palacios though, I think he cost them six million when he joined them last season. Not sure he has done enough to still be worth that now as he hardly ever plays, but Stoke wont take much less. Maybe 3 million and Olsson?

All of the back-room staff are Kean's men.

Berg has to be given a chance to bring in his own choices of people both on and off the field its only then that we can see if he is capable of stabilising Rovers or not.

I did read this about your Piggy Eyed Albino in the nationals.

SCOTLAND legend Colin Hendry faces a police probe for taunting a couple with cruel texts about the £85,000 loan he failed to repay them.
Bankrupt Hendry, 45, bragged in a string of bitter messages he was spending the cash of former pals Hector and Williamina McFarlane’s on booze.
We told this month how the ex-Rangers idol also called Williamina “Miss Piggy”.
Last night Hector, 62, said they called cops over Hendry’s “sickening bullying”.


He's one of your own, that said, and in his defence, there's no mention of Philly fiddling. Despicable.

We told this month how the ex-Rangers idol also called Williamina “Miss Piggy”. Last night Hector, 62, said they called cops over Hendry’s “sickening bullying”. He's one of your own, that said, and in his defence, there's no mention of Philly fiddling. Despicable. Norman's Bell End

I think the penny is finally dropping with most fans.
£5m turnover this year, part of parachute payments spent on JR. Still no actual outlay of cash from Venkys in thier tenure @ ewood. Another window with the usual tag lines "not rushing into this, prudent moves for the club, only improove the squad, bide our time, not pay over the odds", same every window and it all translates to, we'll put our hand in our pocket if we get a bargain, otherwise we won't be shelling out.

Some of the players in under Venkys:

Murphy
Etuhu
Orr
Nuno Gomez
Hoards of Portugese
Markus Ollson
Rhodes

Now apart from Rhodes name one that cost over £1m. Now name one who's "improved the team". The fear was originally when Venkys took over, will they invest money? And the answer is clearly no. The PL invested more than they have by giving us parachute payments for Rhodes. If you combine this with the fact that we have sold players like Nico Kalinic for £6m, Phil Jones for £18m, Samba for £10m, Yak for £1m, you really can't A) wonder why we got relegated B) Expect Venkys to spend money next window. They have asset stripped the club and done such a good job of it that only a few people have actually noticed.
Venkys raked in £35 MILLION from the four players mentioned above and that is not counting Nzonzi. Now apart from Rhodes, who that is left is worth anything. Where's the £40 million gone ?

There are more than a few noticed pocket filling at Ewood, but when they do, venk's tribe come on here slagging anyone off that suggests it.

As onlookers we can only rewind and see how they have taken us down.

Whislt it's happening people are suggesting many things, some a little stretched, but the tribe are quickly off the mark to scotch wrong doing rumors. This blurs the issue and makes it difficult to get the true picture.

The bottom line is; We were a quality unit, all the best has been isolated and sold for whatever, some have been shipped out through the side door, no one of any decency would come to this outfit, so they got rejects and just to prove to idiots that they weren't asset stripping they got JR.

It doesn't help when they put people with known low moral standards in high positions.
Whichever Manager came in would need lots of luck to succeed, the club is ruined.
In my opinion Berg is a better Man than Kean, but nobody steps aside and waves you through in football so it will take a long time if there is going to be success.

The Club is less than half of what it was when they arrived, in all departments.
SPOT ON.......Only the blind can't see it, or they don't want to see it.

make the budget public so other clubs can put their prices up. i understand all receipt from gates just pay wages for three players brought in Etuhu, Murphy and Rhodes. Can Mrs Desai come to everygame and ensure players are ready to play in first half and not wait till second half to compete in match. What are the coaches doing as players dont turn up in first half. Its also prudent to be in financial limits. Huddersfield, Leicester, Millwall etc have not spent big and are doing better.
They probably have better managers and coaching staff. Oh, and also young, keen players rather than those who are over the hill and looking for a final pay day.

Well Henning, bringing in better quality than we have at the moment shouldn't be a problem, the problem will be moving on keans has beens and incapables. It is also refreshing to hear of a review of the back room staff because things obviously arnt right there by a long way and we are seeing the results on the pitch. If Berg is looking to bring some of his old team mates in I would love to see a role for Tugay because we certainly need him to sort the vacant midfield. But unfortunately the January transfer window clashes with pantomime season and Venkys never fail to amaze so I will believe owt.

I think I would welcome it too RPC. Martin Olsson is best when going forward and attacking - but a bit of a liability defending at RB this season especially. Maybe he can take brother Marcus with him, as with Nunes and King and Pedersen surely we have enough cover in that position anyway? Not sure what Stoke would want for Palacios though, I think he cost them six million when he joined them last season. Not sure he has done enough to still be worth that now as he hardly ever plays, but Stoke wont take much less. Maybe 3 million and Olsson?

Hi Mr French hope you are enjoying a nice glass of that lovely French Red.
I understand Pullis wants at least £3/4 mil so if any deal is possible we will want a loan. Stoke want to sell as they need to sell to buy and balance books a little better. He would be good for us. They will only bid £2/3 mil for Olson.

I think I would welcome it too RPC. Martin Olsson is best when going forward and attacking - but a bit of a liability defending at RB this season especially. Maybe he can take brother Marcus with him, as with Nunes and King and Pedersen surely we have enough cover in that position anyway? Not sure what Stoke would want for Palacios though, I think he cost them six million when he joined them last season. Not sure he has done enough to still be worth that now as he hardly ever plays, but Stoke wont take much less. Maybe 3 million and Olsson?
or LB even...
Hi Mr French hope you are enjoying a nice glass of that lovely French Red.
I understand Pullis wants at least £3/4 mil so if any deal is possible we will want a loan. Stoke want to sell as they need to sell to buy and balance books a little better. He would be good for us. They will only bid £2/3 mil for Olson.
Why would we want to swap Olson for Palacios ?...Pulis is no fool, so why would he want to offload Palacios and take Olson? I think we would be getting the dirty end of the stick.......Again.
Palacios is surplus to requirements at Stoke and Pulllis wanted Olsson last season. We need an experienced midfierlder who can pull some strings and control a game and Palacios used to be able to do that. Plus Martin Olsson wont be missed as a defender. So seems like a good bit of business.

I do like Olsson going forward but his heart does not seem to be in it this season in some games. I think that if his brother Marcus had not joined us then Martin may have demanded to be let go in the close season.

Hi RPC....no I am saving the vin rouge for our next home win! Shouldnt be long now....bit like buses eh, we wait ages for one to come along and then we will get three or four all together (I hope)!

I guess we are going to see lots of rumours and links with players in the next few weeks so we had better get used to seeing some more speculation again in the press, just hope that HB can sort out the wheat from the chaff (inside and outside the club) and we get a decent team playing in blue and white again..

Venkys will not spend money in January, they sold our best players off and appreciated the parachute payment they received when we got relegated.
We still owe money for Jordan Rhodes and will probably off load some players in the transfer window and maybe get a few Norweigen players on loan.
(players who have played under Berg).
Im pleased to hear Berg may be getting his own back room staff in as we definitely need someone who can help our defence as Hendry couldn't even train a flea how to jump.
I am a season ticket holder and work shifts, I was supposed to be working on Friday night but used 7hrs of my personal leave so I didnt miss the game
I watched a half hearted performance off most of the players and came home feeling like we have more chance of being relegated again than getting back into the premier league.
I do hope Henning can sort it out and I for one will give him a few more months to prove himself and see what he brings in during the transfer window.
Im Rovers till I die but Im feeling so fed up at the moment.
I feel like we are fighting a losing battle.

I agree with you although any goalie would look a chump behind our pathetic defense and midfield. Its not all his fault. It drives me mad that Givet, Dunn, Vucevic and MGP are on the bench having to watch lesser skilled, lesser experienced and lesser passionate players take their place. Thts what worries me about Berg. Some things are beyond his control but others seem easy fixes.

I think the penny is finally dropping with most fans. £5m turnover this year, part of parachute payments spent on JR. Still no actual outlay of cash from Venkys in thier tenure @ ewood. Another window with the usual tag lines "not rushing into this, prudent moves for the club, only improove the squad, bide our time, not pay over the odds", same every window and it all translates to, we'll put our hand in our pocket if we get a bargain, otherwise we won't be shelling out. Some of the players in under Venkys: Murphy Etuhu Orr Nuno Gomez Hoards of Portugese Markus Ollson Rhodes Now apart from Rhodes name one that cost over £1m. Now name one who's "improved the team". The fear was originally when Venkys took over, will they invest money? And the answer is clearly no. The PL invested more than they have by giving us parachute payments for Rhodes. If you combine this with the fact that we have sold players like Nico Kalinic for £6m, Phil Jones for £18m, Samba for £10m, Yak for £1m, you really can't A) wonder why we got relegated B) Expect Venkys to spend money next window. They have asset stripped the club and done such a good job of it that only a few people have actually noticed.
Venkys raked in £35 MILLION from the four players mentioned above and that is not counting Nzonzi. Now apart from Rhodes, who that is left is worth anything. Where's the £40 million gone ?
Considering the club only made a minimal profit last year having lost £19m the year before, I would think that's pretty obvious. Have a quick glance at the KPMG comments on here. It is convenient the transfer profit just about covers the £19mill, don't you think?

You may have forgotten but they also lost about £25mill at a stroke, over £50m next year, by getting relegated,

So it certainly wasn't their back pocket, as you infer.

I think the penny is finally dropping with most fans. £5m turnover this year, part of parachute payments spent on JR. Still no actual outlay of cash from Venkys in thier tenure @ ewood. Another window with the usual tag lines "not rushing into this, prudent moves for the club, only improove the squad, bide our time, not pay over the odds", same every window and it all translates to, we'll put our hand in our pocket if we get a bargain, otherwise we won't be shelling out. Some of the players in under Venkys: Murphy Etuhu Orr Nuno Gomez Hoards of Portugese Markus Ollson Rhodes Now apart from Rhodes name one that cost over £1m. Now name one who's "improved the team". The fear was originally when Venkys took over, will they invest money? And the answer is clearly no. The PL invested more than they have by giving us parachute payments for Rhodes. If you combine this with the fact that we have sold players like Nico Kalinic for £6m, Phil Jones for £18m, Samba for £10m, Yak for £1m, you really can't A) wonder why we got relegated B) Expect Venkys to spend money next window. They have asset stripped the club and done such a good job of it that only a few people have actually noticed.
Venkys raked in £35 MILLION from the four players mentioned above and that is not counting Nzonzi. Now apart from Rhodes, who that is left is worth anything. Where's the £40 million gone ?
Considering the club only made a minimal profit last year having lost £19m the year before, I would think that's pretty obvious. Have a quick glance at the KPMG comments on here. It is convenient the transfer profit just about covers the £19mill, don't you think?

You may have forgotten but they also lost about £25mill at a stroke, over £50m next year, by getting relegated,

So it certainly wasn't their back pocket, as you infer.
Thanks for the figures. It just goes to show how 'astute ' our millionaire, so called business people owners have been......Haven't they done well lol.
They couldn't have botched it up any more if they had done it all deliberately.
Does NOT bode well for the future.It's frightening that these incompetents are still in control of our club. Has anyone any faith in them ?

I totally agree as I told Kean on here quality not quantity but he didn't heed mine or anyone elses opinions or he would have left 2 years ago. I agree the young lad Henley at right back has potential to be a good player but we still neen experienced cover for him,we also need to replace Dann and Hanley with new players Dann is useless and Hanley is too slow in his reactions for this league no wonder we shipped all those goals in the Prem.

Friedel would make a good short term replacement for Robinson who does not command his box in the ariel contests and tends to knock the ball back out instead of out to the wings.
Murphy is another how do we off load him probably impossible now as every other club realise his legs have gone but we do need some form of replacement with youth and energy.Come on Henning you must have some clues to the quality available in Scandinavia there must be better quality available at cheaper prices than over here.

Berg will sort this mess out but needs the same amount of time that kean was given. January will be just the start of what i think will be plenty of ins and outs starting with the main problem midfield. It really hurts to see us struggle but i blame kean for the mess where in so lets give Berg a breather and get behind him he needs all the support he can get

Agreed, it will take time to sort out Kean's mess, a lot of time.
As for the ins and outs of the transfer window, what's the betting that Venkys won't come out making a profit again ?

The spine of the team is weak. Out with Murphy and Etuhu, Dann and Hanley and Robinson. Replace these 5 players with either existing players in the squad who can do a better job or with signings. That is it- as simple as that. We lack the quality and the energy in the spine of the team. Until we adress the spine we are going nowehere in the Championship.

A lot of that money has gone into wages and paying debt. Venkys bought the club and said they would invest, that does not mean keeping the books ticking over by paying for player wages, in my mind investment means player transfers. There are still ommisions from this years profit/loss account, we are still to account for Hoilett at very least. Venkys realised this problem of cashflow with regard to wages, hence why half our squad was shown the door last year and hence why we are in the second tier. Now the wage bill is more sustainable but as you said, the TV money has all but gone. You can't count the TV money as a loss to your accounts as its intangiable cash which you spend 'in advance'. Plus we have gate money from the very little gates we receive to try to cover the wage black-hole.
As i've said previously, Venkys didn't realise what kind of money trouble they were getting into, they can't afford a prem club and so are quite happy with a championship club run a shoestring from now on, and they will use it as thier PR pony for Venkys India.

You are probably right about the transfer movements, but good players go and inferior ones come in. The squad is continually being weakened.

I only said yesterday that Venkys would make a profit (again) in the January transfer window. Let's do the sums and see.

I think Berg is a better long-term prospect as an agent than Kean ever was.

The king is dead - long live the king.
Article in a national newspaper today " woman from Burnley fuelled by drugs and drink kills own baby" bet you didn't read that as you were too busy loitering on BRFC news sites. Enough said about people from Burnley I think, hang your head in shame dingle!
I did read this about your Piggy Eyed Albino in the nationals.

SCOTLAND legend Colin Hendry faces a police probe for taunting a couple with cruel texts about the £85,000 loan he failed to repay them.
Bankrupt Hendry, 45, bragged in a string of bitter messages he was spending the cash of former pals Hector and Williamina McFarlane’s on booze.
We told this month how the ex-Rangers idol also called Williamina “Miss Piggy”.
Last night Hector, 62, said they called cops over Hendry’s “sickening bullying”.


He's one of your own, that said, and in his defence, there's no mention of Philly fiddling. Despicable.
Oh right lets beak this down - Burnley woman kills own baby, Colin Hendry steals £85000 ad sends a few nasty text messages. Not comparable in my eyes dingle but obviously is in yours you sick, six fingered, sister bashing, mother f***ing, horse loving, sheep sh**ging, scum of the earth,stain on society **** team, **** ground, 34 years, inferior complexioned dingle!! Now shut up and hang your head in shame. Dingle.
