    I'm surprised Robbo has been dropped - thats a big gamble for HB.

    I went to MK Dons earlier this season when Kean played and he was very poor (at fault for the 2nd goal).

    Outfield looks better with 2 decent widemen and 2 up front.

    That said JL and DE in central midfield is very very week.

    Roobo, seen it coming, worst goalkeeper last season in PL, shots on target to goals conceded was worse than any other keeper, and that stat doesn't lie. I'll be glad to see Jake kean get a go, at least it should make robbo take a bit more notice instead of being complacent. Glad vuekevic and givet getting a start as well. Should be an interesting afternoon. Lets hope it pays off

    Talk is that Robbo has played his last game for Rovers and is going to West Ham Jan as he is unhappy at return of Friedel. Again today we are seeing that weakness in centre midfield.

    Can't beleive we've gone in losing. Watching on livestreaming and we have dominated the vast majority of the first half.

    Infact I think the goal is Blackpools only atempt on target in the first half !

    SV has been head and shoulders the best player on pitch and it beggars beleif that HB has not picked him to start before now.

    Dunn needs to come on for the 2nd hald as there is nothing going forwards with DE and JL.

    Although the team set-up is better today our defending compared to Blackpools is woefull and that is the difference between the 2 sides.

    JR has had his usual one chance, otherwise they've hardly passed the ball to him.

    Gotta get something out of this game or HB is going to come under severe pressure and we are going to have to start looking at the bottom three rather than the top six !!

    Why is Thinkson Etuhu still on the pitch we hardly win anything with him in midfield, how can they expect to win the game when first youre not prepared to stop the other team playing and not prepared to impose the game on the opposition.

    Match commentators say Rovers lethargic no interest and don't care don'.t work off the ball. Alan wright says it is terrible to see his old club in this state, It looks like we have picked the dummy out of all the managers recently taken on by the local clubs. Henning will have to go or we will be relegated.

    Why does berg persist with thickson etuhu when we are playing with three in the centre, he neither keeps the ball, or break up play or run with the play or spray it about. under berg the team has imploded, before they played poorly but were hard to beat now they cant even do that

    2-0 to Blackpool is pathetic, never looked like being in the game, only one win in 9 and no clean sheets, some managers are sacked with less than that, berg cant seem to motivate them for some reason

    Well Merry Christmas to all at Ewood

    Only one team wanted the ball and sadly Berg has failed miserably to influence the players in his time in charge. Teamwork seems to be absent in all areas of the park

    Shebby promised decisive action - my question is when ? and will you accept responsibility for the decisions you have made since arriving at Ewood - YOU SHOULD LEAVE NOW. As for Venkys all seems to be hot air as usual TAKE THEM WITH YOU

    This season now is about consolidating and retaining their position in the Championship - Mark Hughes is available so let us see how decisive you really are Shebby

    Just watched the game on live streaming and 2nd half we were absolutley ABYSMAL and in the end lucky to lose by only 2 goals.

    To make it worse HB made his first change after 73 mins and took of our best player - GENIUS !!!!

    The players looked unmotivated and un-interested and unorganised - the vast majority of this current squad are truely a DISGRACE to our club and are not fit to wear our shirt.

    I am sorry Henning but you are NEVER going to make it as a manager whilst I have a hole in my ar$e.

    Having watched every minate of the last 5 games and I cannot see where the next win is coming from.

    I know they arnt your players and you actually picked a reasonable starting line up today but its taken you 9 games !!

    - you can't seem to get the team to defend - we must be averaging 2 goals against under your manership and you obviously can't motivate or organise the players (pretty fundemental qualities for any reasonable manager, I would have thought).

    I like you as a person and for what you have done for our club in the past but it is NOT going to work out - RESIGN and take that utter moron Shebby with you.

    can't believe that Bozo the clowns here are bulling up Kean. KEAN IS THE REASON WE ARE HERE, THESE ARE HIS SHEITE SIGNINGS.
    Kean has a lot to answer for, selling off an entire first team and leaving us with this spineless bunch of nomarks, And Scott Dann who was at fault again for the second goal after giving the ball away compounds his sheiteness by being a whisker away from scoring an own goal. Where was Givet who was supposed to be marking the goalscorer for the second?

    KEAN you have a lot to answer for, for signing all these losers, no spine no belief, no leaders, spiralling out of control.

    Doesn't matter if you put lewis hamilton or Jenson button in a fiat 500, he's not gonna win le mans in a car like that is he?

    Hey Mr Magnificent Se7en, you need to have a quick look at the table when Kean left and if you were at Bristol City for his last match you would know they were on the right track, if nothing else the players were giving everything for him, not the same since. Any change should have been made in the summer, not when you have made a decent start to the next season and not because fans don't like him....
