Berg: 'Missed chances proves costly for Blackburn Rovers'

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

HENNING Berg believes Blackburn Rovers' first half wastefulness cost them dear as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Blackpool this afternoon.

Rovers spurned a host of opportunities before the break as a West Thomas goal against the run of play was enough to give the hosts a lead at the break.

Blackpool went on to dominate the second 45 minutes as a Kirk Broadfoot header secured an ultimately comfortable victory, leaving Rovers with four defeats in their past five games.

Berg said: "We were desperate to win and play well and I think we showed that in the opening half.

"I don't know how much the players heard of what was being shouted at them by the fans but I don't think too much about my own position.

"All our players tried their best but when you are lacking in confidence you become indecisive.

"I am focussed on doing the best I can to improve the team but if our early chances had gone in it could have been a different game."

Henning, Please ensure that you have got the players fired up for a fight.

Show them how to close down the opposition quickly when we haven't got the ball.

Tell them to get into the 'faces' of the opposition and make a nuisance of themselves when we're not in possession.

None of these things require any real amount of skill but make it difficult for our opponents to walk all over us, as everyone seems to be doing at the moment.

I worry if this is his assessment of the game - we may have scored first but we can not defend properly so that would not have ensured a win - midfield outgunned 3 against 2 - we are there for the taking every time and the buck stops at the top. If you are making the decisions they seem every week more like desperation moves.

Not good - we are no more ateam than what we were when Eric black was in charge - it is not working - as a player and a person Henning Berg deserves respect but as a Manager so far it is an unmitigated disaster - the players are hiding once the game goes against them and confidence is non existant.

Shebby is there really a united dressingroom?

Berg you sound more and more like Kean each week.

Pray tell us what made you leave the abysmal bumbling Etuhu on and take off Vukevic who was a star in the first half and worked his socks off as he has done every opportunity he has had to play?

Your starting lineup was right on, but why only one sub?
Pederson and Gomes on the touchline, why not bring them on to change the game?

Face it, a good tradesman can never blame his tools and you have an impressive arsenal at your disposal who you've failed to inspire. If they lack confidence, whose fault is that? You had a sellout away crowd following today who sang their hearts out for at least 80 mins if not more.

Face it Henning, the job is too big for you. We loved you as a player we respected you for taking on the challenge under this regime and patiently awaited to see the green shoots of recovery that were promised, but now in 16th place with only 1 win, you yourself should be honest with yourself and step down gracefully and keeo your honour and respect at this club intact.

Its not over for Rovers yet, far from it, but we all knew it, we all said it. This job needed someone whose done it before, an experienced manager a la Schuster, OGS or the Holloways who had reportedly showed interest and, who have a vast amount of experience and their oen staff with them.

Don't be a Kean. Let someone with experience guide us back to our winning ways.

I hope I'll NEVER see Scott Dann on the pitch again..! And it is obvious that we need a central midfielder that can hold and distribute the ball wisely. Etuhu is a joke. If HB get to choose his own players and staff we will be more than fine

It looks like they still need to learn that they have to earn the right to get the ball down and play, dont just expect to get the ball and somehow score by aimlessly punting it up to the striker, there has to be thought in how to play.

The job of winning is much more difficult than it needs to be since they are not keeping the ball out, that is half the battle. they have made it so difficult as they lack the appettie to do the ugly and unrewarded side of the game, closing down, tracking back, blocking and tackling all requires effort but also inititiave and anticipation, it doesnt help when your engine room has players with no hunger and no energy.

Berg should understand when working with poor players like rovers are left with now, he cant go directly to the advanced stuff that the top teams do when the basics are not sound, the football being played will continue to faulter, he has to start again, spoonfeed them everything from the start, it is not enough to say we need to/can defend better, but tell them what their role is, what not to do in certain situations, and preparing them in case others make a mistake.

Time for some Rovers fans to grow some ****'x - all the shouts for Berg Out are pathetic.You just cant run a football club if you sack every manager we have if they lose a couple of games. The club has to (and will) give Berg at least until the end of the season to prove himself. The Kean Out protests built-up over two years and were totally justified but now some fans want Berg out after two months. Unbelievable! No wonder the scum up the road are having another laugh at us. And that is out of order. Just like the Berg out shouts are.

My problem with Berg is that he doesn't seem capable of changing tact until 10-15 mins towards the end of the game.

I'm all for giving a new manager a chance and I don't want to call for his sacking, but honestly do not think he is capable of turning it around for us. At this level, with the players at his disposal, he should have at least been capable of stringing a few wins together against the lesser teams, yet a win at home has eluded him as has more than one win in eight?

And frankly apart from his starting lineup today which was spot on, his team selection as his substitutions are baffling me. Wheres Dunn? Why did Pederson look like he was warming up but didn't play? Why was Etu-WHO? Allowed to play 90 mins of shiyte football where he was like a rabbit in headlights at most tackles?

We couldn't understand Kean's selections but Im struggling to understand where the goals are going to come from with this attacking style of hoofball, run all the way back to defend tactics with poor Rhodes getting little or no service to speak of in the second half especially today.

Berg needs to pull his finger out or get out. Its as simple as that. This isn't a league you can coast through on draws and losses and the competition this year is stronger than ever. Im not holding out to a few transfers making a huge difference if Berg doesn't possess the capacity early on in the game to realise a formation isnt working or a player isnt on form and bring on impact players to turn the game around. This is what the good managers are capable of and we do have the talent in the squad to be able to do that.

We haven't got the time to sacrifice for Berg to learn the game, we needed someone to hit the ground running and Berg just doesn't seem to fit that bill.

An appalling performance, but at least the manager is getting the players sorted out, if a bit late. Paul Robinson has let in a lot of goals at his near post, and it was good to see someone else given an opportunity. I was very pleased to see Givet back in the team. The week positions are clearly Etuhu and Dann, both of whom make too many mistakes at the critical times. For the first 20 mins the perfomance seemed OK, but as soon as the first goal went in the errors re-appeared and the team seemed to go to pieces. Put Rochina in for Etuhu and try another player at centre back, surely there are others to try, and things may be a lot better. If your most experienced midfielder is continually making errors you have no chance. Chanting "you are not fit to wear the shirt" does not help, as I am sure the players are trying their best but there are may weaknesses that sheer effort will not overcome.

However, I am not going to any more away matches, anyway, because the other Rovers fans all were intent on standing - and due to my age and state of fitness I simply cannot stand for 90 minutes without developing back ache. There was a sign stating that standing was not allowed, and that was totally ignored.

Just quite how these people have put together together an international business is beyond me. I can only assume the class and bribery system in India is alive and well, because it surely can't be on merit.

Anyway, what's done can't be undone in my eyes. The quicker we start downsizing as a football club to recognise we're now a championship/league one club the less chance we'll get into financial turmoil and administration once they've taken their lot and **** off.

Totally and utterly agree.

I still don't think most Rovers fans on here really understand our accounts that have recently been published - someone, a couple of days ago, on here, actually wrote "Well at least we made a profit"

ER, - NO !!!! we didnt !!

We made a HUGE operating LOSS !!

And since those accounts were published those MORONS, the Venkys have sanctioned the signings of NG, DM, JR, DE all on HUGE WAGES (apart from JR, I wouldnt pay the other 3 in washers) and in doing so have massively incressed our debt liabilities going forwards to unsustainable levels.

People, not unreasonably on here are saying we need to buy 5-7 new players in Jan - but we havent got any money - infact we are forecast to LOSE at least £30m (YES £30m) in the next 12 months - a figure which is wholely unsupportable on our falling revenues and the year afterwards is likely to be just as large a loss unless the problem of costs is not addressed.

As many players as possibly have to OFF-LOADED in JAN.

SD, MF, MO, RR, PR all have to be sold (if we can find some mug to buy em).

DD, MGP need to be released - if possible.

The quicker we start downsizing as a football club to recognise we're now a championship/league one club the less chance we'll get into financial turmoil and administration once they've taken their lot and **** off.[/p][/quote]Totally and utterly agree. I still don't think most Rovers fans on here really understand our accounts that have recently been published - someone, a couple of days ago, on here, actually wrote "Well at least we made a profit" ER, - NO !!!! we didnt !! We made a HUGE operating LOSS !! And since those accounts were published those MORONS, the Venkys have sanctioned the signings of NG, DM, JR, DE all on HUGE WAGES (apart from JR, I wouldnt pay the other 3 in washers) and in doing so have massively incressed our debt liabilities going forwards to unsustainable levels. People, not unreasonably on here are saying we need to buy 5-7 new players in Jan - but we havent got any money - infact we are forecast to LOSE at least £30m (YES £30m) in the next 12 months - a figure which is wholely unsupportable on our falling revenues and the year afterwards is likely to be just as large a loss unless the problem of costs is not addressed. As many players as possibly have to OFF-LOADED in JAN. SD, MF, MO, RR, PR all have to be sold (if we can find some mug to buy em). DD, MGP need to be released - if possible. DM, DE & NG have to be made to train on their own and be told that they will NOT be selected again and can leave if they can find some mug club who will take them, or they agree to have their contracts cancelled (fat chance with them money grabing ba$tard$).

Your starting lineup was right on, but why only one sub?
Pederson and Gomes on the touchline, why not bring them on to change the game?

Face it, a good tradesman can never blame his tools and you have an impressive arsenal at your disposal who you've failed to inspire. If they lack confidence, whose fault is that? You had a sellout away crowd following today who sang their hearts out for at least 80 mins if not more.

Face it Henning, the job is too big for you. We loved you as a player we respected you for taking on the challenge under this regime and patiently awaited to see the green shoots of recovery that were promised, but now in 16th place with only 1 win, you yourself should be honest with yourself and step down gracefully and keeo your honour and respect at this club intact.

Its not over for Rovers yet, far from it, but we all knew it, we all said it. This job needed someone whose done it before, an experienced manager a la Schuster, OGS or the Holloways who had reportedly showed interest and, who have a vast amount of experience and their oen staff with them.

Don't be a Kean. Let someone with experience guide us back to our winning ways.

Time for some Rovers fans to grow some ****'x - all the shouts for Berg Out are pathetic.You just cant run a football club if you sack every manager we have if they lose a couple of games.

The Kean Out protests built-up over two years and were totally justified but now some fans want Berg out after two months. Unbelievable! No wonder the scum up the road are having another laugh at us. And that is out of order. Just like the Berg out shouts are.
After the Kean 'experiment' the only thing the huge majority of fans asked for was the bringing in of an experienced manager but no, Shabby learnt absolutely nothing and brought in another 'rookie', with too be honest, the only thing going for him was his past association with Rovers.He has absolutely no managerial record to fall back on to at least give the fans the hope that he can turn this around.Added to that,not only has Henning had to produce a winning combination from the playing 'talent' that we have but also he has to assemble a backroom team! Any decent manager has a trusted No 2 and first team coach that he takes with him wherever he is appointed.The last thing any manager taking on the challenge at Rovers needs is this type of extra distraction.
The truth is that even Mick McCarthy is getting more out of the poor Ipswich squad that he inherited. Usually a new manager has a honeymoon period but Berg hasn't even had a wedding night fumble!!
People point out that he working with somebody else's squad but he had the loan window to strengthen some key areas that were glaringly obvious(right winger,centre half/midfield) but he goes and gets a bolke to start on the left wing when we have about 6 people who could play there!
Scott Dann has the fans calling for his blood with an abject peformance against Cardiff , so what does Berg do? He gives him the captain's armband!!
Alan Wright on Radio Lancs commented that he felt the players lack any commitment of effort for most of the game but Berg comes out and praises them for their attitude! The more I listen to him the more he is sounding like Steve Kean.(I honestly believe that we would be better off points wise if Kean was still in place-which I didn't want by the way!).If we can't sack him, can we not insist that he at least wears a wig because the thought of watching another inept bald manager standing in the technical area is too hard to take!!

And we even added Rhodes , so who is to blame
Home should be 4-4-2. Away 5-3-2, it's not rocket science
Rhodes Kzr, are your 2 up front end of story then get players too supply them
Pace from midfield is essential from at least 2 those selected Rochina gets his place as does olsoon
The others distribute the ball and hold midfield( Dicko and murphy are not the answer ) to slow and are past there best
We need to sell or offload these 2 along with mpg Dunn Lowe Formica
And bring in 4 midfielders who can do that role ( hold and distribute) if they have pace then that's a bonus
As far as defence I would get shut of Dann Hanley and get replacements for these 2 if robbo can find a club let him go

And that is out of order. Just like the Berg out shouts are.
If Berg doesnt sort this mess out on the pitch soon, unfortunately very soon we will be looking at another relegation battle. Its not hard to see it. There is no passion from any of the team. He should never have been given the job to begin with. It needs a proven football manager to get you out this division, bigger clubs than us still trying to get out. So sorry BERG is not that man and the sooner he goes and a proven manager is brought in then maybe this mess can be addressed. Sorry if you dont agree but every individual has their own opinion.

Totally agree..... 90% of Rovers fans were calling for an experienced manager. It was Singh, who in his wisdom, ignored everyone and insisted we didn't need experience and seemed to prefer ex players..Sherwood, Mc Kinley and we ended up with Berg. As you say this is a very difficult league to get out of and we need a hard, tough experienced manager out of the Souness / Hughes mould.

The fact is Blackburn can't afford to "give Berg until the end of the season" to see if it works out or not. You obviously don't understand the financial consequences of failure this season.

I'm not condoning anti-Berg chants, they don't help the cause a dot, but the sentiment of those fans wanting Berg out is correct.

Berg was without question the WRONG choice for this club, right now, in this clubs state, with what little 'experience' he has and with what is at stake. The results are proving it. As bad as Kean was, at least he had the squad challenging for promotion, which is the very least it should be doing given the talent we have.

Its all getting way out of hand and i'm frankly bored of reading the same old look on the positive side posts...

After the Kean 'experiment' the only thing the huge majority of fans asked for was the bringing in of an experienced manager but no, Shabby learnt absolutely nothing and brought in another 'rookie', with too be honest, the only thing going for him was his past association with Rovers.He has absolutely no managerial record to fall back on to at least give the fans the hope that he can turn this around.Added to that,not only has Henning had to produce a winning combination from the playing 'talent' that we have but also he has to assemble a backroom team! Any decent manager has a trusted No 2 and first team coach that he takes with him wherever he is appointed.The last thing any manager taking on the challenge at Rovers needs is this type of extra distraction.
The truth is that even Mick McCarthy is getting more out of the poor Ipswich squad that he inherited. Usually a new manager has a honeymoon period but Berg hasn't even had a wedding night fumble!!
People point out that he working with somebody else's squad but he had the loan window to strengthen some key areas that were glaringly obvious(right winger,centre half/midfield) but he goes and gets a bolke to start on the left wing when we have about 6 people who could play there!
Scott Dann has the fans calling for his blood with an abject peformance against Cardiff , so what does Berg do? He gives him the captain's armband!!
Alan Wright on Radio Lancs commented that he felt the players lack any commitment of effort for most of the game but Berg comes out and praises them for their attitude! The more I listen to him the more he is sounding like Steve Kean.(I honestly believe that we would be better off points wise if Kean was still in place-which I didn't want by the way!).If we can't sack him, can we not insist that he at least wears a wig because the thought of watching another inept bald manager standing in the technical area is too hard to take!!
Totally agree.
Berg looks completely out of his depth and seems incapable of improving things.

Can anyone see any signs of improvment since his arrival because I can't.

Surely he ought to be making some impression after 9 or 10 games, yet he appears to be getting less out of this squad than either Kean or Black.

His managment record in Norway was poor and did not compare with numerous other managers who applied or expressed an interest in the Rovers job.

So why should we give him more time and money in the hope that he may be able to turn things round.

Would it not be better to cut our losses now and seek out the experienced manager that 90% of fans wanted in the first place - and by experienced I mean someone who has had some managerial success either in the English top 2 divisions, or abroad.

Shebby and the Board are the real culprits here (along with Venkys of course).
They took 5 weeks to appoint the new manager because they wanted to be certain he was the right choice.
Remember it was to be promotion or bust - that was to be Berg's only target.

I am afraid we look more like a relegation outfit at the moment and if we lose at home next Saturay the knives will surely be out.

Spot on Mr. French. I hope that you have recovered from that debacle as I think I have just about. We must all look forward to the next game hopefully without some of the dross who played yesterday. We must get a specialist fitness coach in this lot are not fit or brave enough. Skill without fitness will never be good enough. All the other teams look much fitter from the start. Mind you one or two are well past it and in their case fitness will not make a difference.

Berg, you are right "missed chances proved costly for Blackburn Rovers!"
None more costly than missing the chance to appoint an experienced manager when we finally got rid of Kean.

So don't come on hear talking sh1t to the fans because you obviously know a lot less than they do about football management or man management. Nuttall Street

HHHH, old chap, I am very definitely calling for Henning Berg's head because he should never have been appointed in the first place. His appointment was without any element of justification whatsoever. His appalling results since taking over just serve as evidence to support the primary case against him. I might go on to say that I am calling for Berg's head now so soon after his appointment because I can see that we will only get more of the same (nothing is going to change in the January window) and I want the damage to be limited before we end up in League One. However, it is already too late. We could have had any one of the recent managerial appointments in the championship, all of whom have started to revive their new clubs, but, oh no, under The Global Adviser and the incompetent Venky's we got the one candidate unqualified to do that. You couldn't make this stuff up.

I don't think we have a cat in hells chance (I hope I'm wrong ) of an experienced manager, if only for the reasons that Sam was sacked. They wanted someone who would go along with their way of doing things and no proper experienced manager of note will go along with that. Hence, during the 'interview process' at least two potential managers ' withdrew their applications'

I went yesterday and that second half performance was an absolute disgrace. We have had three managers now who have persevered with this so called midfielder called Dickson Etuhu he is the worst player ever to pull on a blue and white shirt yet the fans in the pubs before the game sing his name like he is a rovers legend he is a player of no energy, no commitment and no heart. Berg get this man out of our club now and maybe just maybe the team may be lifted a little. Now for Murphy, he should of had the captains' armband stripped from him as soon as Berg came in as manager but no he stuck by him, another uninfluencial player. This is our problem, midfield. Jason Lowe was the only person in the entire team that was bothered when the super blue and white supporters sang "your not fit to wear the shirts" . Berg, after yesterday you should have ripped into the team in front of the media so the fans know that you care. What's needed now is he needs to get the squad together, the youth team, coaches, all the directors and those people from India and the tea lady! Ask them "are you interested in the club or not" those with the couldn't care less attitude put them training with the under ten teams and ship them out in the new year, same with the directors and owners (but we all know that's not going to happen any time soon) or walk away now Mr Berg with your head held high. If you do decide to stay get shut of the people behind you and bring your own staff in, thats if Shebby allows you. I am not even going to go down that road about him, just glad I wasn't part of the 500 who went to King Georges Hall to listen to that silly mans drivel.

I hope that shebby and the Venkys have being doing there maths and realise that automatic promotion may already be beyond us, and is definitely beyond us unless Berg suddenly becomes a decent manager over night.
-
We need 57 points from our final 24 games of the season. This would require a run in of either
W18 D 3 L3;
OR
W17 D6 L1
-
With the current group of players and manager how likely is that? This season we are now more likely to face a relegation battle than anything else. Especially if the form and results of the last 5 games is repeated for the rest of the season.
-
We would have been better off with Kean still as manager. Even though he had to go. I find it unbelievable that the Venkys found someone even worse as a manager than Kean.

I thought the idea of a big squad was that you can make changes when things are not going well but we basically get the same muppets every game. If those in the squad ain't good enough get in some reserves, get in somebody who wants to play for the shirt. Rovers players have been without passion, desire, fight for too long and are happy picking up their inflated pay checks up. In the real world anybody putting these kind of shifts in would be on the dole double quick smart!!

Crushed.

For the first time in my entire 38 years of following our beloved I walked off yesterday in the 81st minute, and as I wandered off lonely as a eyesore dejected Blackpool popped another free header in !

Hearing my fellow supporter (justifiably) laying into what is a shambles breaks my chuffing heart leaving me with an absolute empty feeling as to the route ahead ? These players that are donning the B&W shirt at present are damned and woefully lacking any confidence with the **** that as engulfed BRFC, and in the middle of all this is Henning Berg attempting in finding a solution ?

Up to the goal Rovers were in control, but as soon as the goal went in you could sense immediately the confusion within the ranks - absolutely no team ethic whatsoever just individuals attempting in rectifying the situation. Of course, had the chances gone in then possibly we could have witnessed a different game, but I doubt it as the non team ethic would have been exposed ?

Three positives for me - just - Givet, Lowe and SV the rest and in particular Dann were woeful. A truly shocking state of affairs. January is the only salvation that I can glean from all this and that is on a wing a and a prayer !

Should this continue then relegation is a real threat.

I simply refuse to put myself through the grinder any longer with this. From the boardroom to the field of play into the stands we are eating ourselves alive whilst Nero fiddled as Rome burned.

A pitiful state of affairs. A circus complete with all fools.

Please don't take my Rovers away !

Time for some Rovers fans to grow some ****'x - all the shouts for Berg Out are pathetic.You just cant run a football club if you sack every manager we have if they lose a couple of games. The club has to (and will) give Berg at least until the end of the season to prove himself. The Kean Out protests built-up over two years and were totally justified but now some fans want Berg out after two months. Unbelievable! No wonder the scum up the road are having another laugh at us. And that is out of order. Just like the Berg out shouts are.
After the Kean 'experiment' the only thing the huge majority of fans asked for was the bringing in of an experienced manager but no, Shabby learnt absolutely nothing and brought in another 'rookie', with too be honest, the only thing going for him was his past association with Rovers.He has absolutely no managerial record to fall back on to at least give the fans the hope that he can turn this around.Added to that,not only has Henning had to produce a winning combination from the playing 'talent' that we have but also he has to assemble a backroom team! Any decent manager has a trusted No 2 and first team coach that he takes with him wherever he is appointed.The last thing any manager taking on the challenge at Rovers needs is this type of extra distraction.
The truth is that even Mick McCarthy is getting more out of the poor Ipswich squad that he inherited. Usually a new manager has a honeymoon period but Berg hasn't even had a wedding night fumble!!
People point out that he working with somebody else's squad but he had the loan window to strengthen some key areas that were glaringly obvious(right winger,centre half/midfield) but he goes and gets a bolke to start on the left wing when we have about 6 people who could play there!
Scott Dann has the fans calling for his blood with an abject peformance against Cardiff , so what does Berg do? He gives him the captain's armband!!
Alan Wright on Radio Lancs commented that he felt the players lack any commitment of effort for most of the game but Berg comes out and praises them for their attitude! The more I listen to him the more he is sounding like Steve Kean.(I honestly believe that we would be better off points wise if Kean was still in place-which I didn't want by the way!).If we can't sack him, can we not insist that he at least wears a wig because the thought of watching another inept bald manager standing in the technical area is too hard to take!!
Totally agree.
Berg looks completely out of his depth and seems incapable of improving things.

Can anyone see any signs of improvment since his arrival because I can't.

Surely he ought to be making some impression after 9 or 10 games, yet he appears to be getting less out of this squad than either Kean or Black.

His managment record in Norway was poor and did not compare with numerous other managers who applied or expressed an interest in the Rovers job.

So why should we give him more time and money in the hope that he may be able to turn things round.

Would it not be better to cut our losses now and seek out the experienced manager that 90% of fans wanted in the first place - and by experienced I mean someone who has had some managerial success either in the English top 2 divisions, or abroad.

Shebby and the Board are the real culprits here (along with Venkys of course).
They took 5 weeks to appoint the new manager because they wanted to be certain he was the right choice.
Remember it was to be promotion or bust - that was to be Berg's only target.

I am afraid we look more like a relegation outfit at the moment and if we lose at home next Saturay the knives will surely be out.
Which experienced managers are you suggesting would step into Berg's shoes and work in those outrageous circumstances with a no-mark Malaysian international on a self-indulgent PR mission looking over his shoulder, spouting illogical strategy to the media and fans, invisible deaf and dumb owners, the dormant Agnew and Shaw, mass discontent amongst fans? We all want that but you have to get real. It aint going to happen.

Unbelievable, some on here saying Kean was better, I'll fill you in in case you forgot why YOU wanted him out and took great delights in getting the result YOU required. He took over and we were 10th in the league, in a period of two years he sold the entire first team squad and replaced them with cheaper imports but with larger agents fees. He made a fortune in outgoing sales even managing to sell some of his own buys to boot as he had a percentage sell on contract, hence all our players sold on. He then gets us relegated after failing to address any blindingly obvious shortfalls in the squad and pocketing a large sum in sales cut. Now after you brought Lewis hamilton in ( Berg ) to drive your mini moke ( Rovers Car after keans tinkering ) you want to get Kean ( monkey mechanic) back.
Its is this attitude and reason that makes this club the laughing stock of the football league, its supporters. Just hand in your spineless tickets and leave.

If Berg doesnt sort this mess out on the pitch soon, unfortunately very soon we will be looking at another relegation battle. Its not hard to see it. There is no passion from any of the team. He should never have been given the job to begin with. It needs a proven football manager to get you out this division, bigger clubs than us still trying to get out. So sorry BERG is not that man and the sooner he goes and a proven manager is brought in then maybe this mess can be addressed. Sorry if you dont agree but every individual has their own opinion.
Totally agree..... 90% of Rovers fans were calling for an experienced manager. It was Singh, who in his wisdom, ignored everyone and insisted we didn't need experience and seemed to prefer ex players..Sherwood, Mc Kinley and we ended up with Berg. As you say this is a very difficult league to get out of and we need a hard, tough experienced manager out of the Souness / Hughes mould.
AGREE !

ONE THE PERSONAL DISASTER AND PATHETICLY INEPT AT COACHING HENDRY , WHO ARRIVED WITH THE FANFARE AND COMMENTS OF " I`VE CAME BACK HERE TO SORT THIS DEFENCE OUT AND TO STOP IT LEAKING IN GOALS ,I`M HERE TO HELP STEVEN (KEAN) "
THE OTHER PERSON THAT HAS CAME IN WHEN KEAN RESIGNED WAS ANOTHER EX PLAYER HENNING BERG , BOTH EX PLAYERS , QUESTION IS ,
WHO IS THE PERSON THAT ULTIMATELY MADE THE DECISIONS TO BRING THESE TWO GUYS IN ?

WHO BROUGHT THESE TWO /
MOST OF US WOULD ASSUME IT WAS SHEBBY SINGH , THE GUY WHO HAS NOT A CLUE ,AND THINKS THAT WE CARE MORE ABOUT EX PLAYERS COMING BACK TO ROVERS THAN WE DO ABOUT OUR FOOTBALL CLUB BEING SUCCESSFUL.

SHEBBY WE DO NOT GIVE A MONKEYS ABOUT EX PLAYERS ,GET RID OF BOTH OF THE CLOWNS.

Any decent manager has a trusted No 2 and first team coach that he takes with him wherever he is appointed.The last thing any manager taking on the challenge at Rovers needs is this type of extra distraction.
The truth is that even Mick McCarthy is getting more out of the poor Ipswich squad that he inherited. Usually a new manager has a honeymoon period but Berg hasn't even had a wedding night fumble!!
People point out that he working with somebody else's squad but he had the loan window to strengthen some key areas that were glaringly obvious(right winger,centre half/midfield) but he goes and gets a bolke to start on the left wing when we have about 6 people who could play there!

Totally agree.
Berg looks completely out of his depth and seems incapable of improving things.

Can anyone see any signs of improvment since his arrival because I can't.

Surely he ought to be making some impression after 9 or 10 games, yet he appears to be getting less out of this squad than either Kean or Black.

His managment record in Norway was poor and did not compare with numerous other managers who applied or expressed an interest in the Rovers job.

So why should we give him more time and money in the hope that he may be able to turn things round.

Would it not be better to cut our losses now and seek out the experienced manager that 90% of fans wanted in the first place - and by experienced I mean someone who has had some managerial success either in the English top 2 divisions, or abroad.

Shebby and the Board are the real culprits here (along with Venkys of course).
They took 5 weeks to appoint the new manager because they wanted to be certain he was the right choice.
Remember it was to be promotion or bust - that was to be Berg's only target.

I am afraid we look more like a relegation outfit at the moment and if we lose at home next Saturay the knives will surely be out.
Which experienced managers are you suggesting would step into Berg's shoes and work in those outrageous circumstances with a no-mark Malaysian international on a self-indulgent PR mission looking over his shoulder, spouting illogical strategy to the media and fans, invisible deaf and dumb owners, the dormant Agnew and Shaw, mass discontent amongst fans? We all want that but you have to get real. It aint going to happen.
Merlin, if you just cast your mind back 2 months or so you will no doubt remember all the names that we were told had applied for the vacant Rovers job.
The names included many English and foreign managers who had far better managerial track records / CV's than Henning Berg.

Surely by applying or registering their interest in the Rovers vacancy these managers wanted the job.

At the interview stage any manager worth his salt would then have demanded the final say on team affairs, selection, transfers etc. and made sure that Shebby was kept well away.

As I posted several times during the 5 week search, the Board were obsessed on appointing an ex-player as the new manager.
I presume this was in the hope that he would possibly re-unite the club.

This was the wrong policy and we are now suffering as a result.

Earlier in the season Shebby talked publicly about the points target he had set for Steve Kean but Berg's only target was to gain promotion this year.
Based on his performance over the past 9 games this is not going to happen.

Shebby, Agnew and Shaw have a lot to answer for.

If we lose at home again next Saturday - what then?

The club has to (and will) give Berg at least until the end of the season to prove himself. The Kean Out protests built-up over two years and were totally justified but now some fans want Berg out after two months. Unbelievable! No wonder the scum up the road are having another laugh at us. And that is out of order. Just like the Berg out shouts are.[/p][/quote]After the Kean 'experiment' the only thing the huge majority of fans asked for was the bringing in of an experienced manager but no, Shabby learnt absolutely nothing and brought in another 'rookie', with too be honest, the only thing going for him was his past association with Rovers.He has absolutely no managerial record to fall back on to at least give the fans the hope that he can turn this around.Added to that,not only has Henning had to produce a winning combination from the playing 'talent' that we have but also he has to assemble a backroom team! Any decent manager has a trusted No 2 and first team coach that he takes with him wherever he is appointed.The last thing any manager taking on the challenge at Rovers needs is this type of extra distraction. The truth is that even Mick McCarthy is getting more out of the poor Ipswich squad that he inherited. Usually a new manager has a honeymoon period but Berg hasn't even had a wedding night fumble!! People point out that he working with somebody else's squad but he had the loan window to strengthen some key areas that were glaringly obvious(right winger,centre half/midfield) but he goes and gets a bolke to start on the left wing when we have about 6 people who could play there! Scott Dann has the fans calling for his blood with an abject peformance against Cardiff , so what does Berg do? He gives him the captain's armband!! Alan Wright on Radio Lancs commented that he felt the players lack any commitment of effort for most of the game but Berg comes out and praises them for their attitude! The more I listen to him the more he is sounding like Steve Kean.(I honestly believe that we would be better off points wise if Kean was still in place-which I didn't want by the way!).If we can't sack him, can we not insist that he at least wears a wig because the thought of watching another inept bald manager standing in the technical area is too hard to take!![/p][/quote]Totally agree. Berg looks completely out of his depth and seems incapable of improving things. Can anyone see any signs of improvment since his arrival because I can't. Surely he ought to be making some impression after 9 or 10 games, yet he appears to be getting less out of this squad than either Kean or Black. His managment record in Norway was poor and did not compare with numerous other managers who applied or expressed an interest in the Rovers job. So why should we give him more time and money in the hope that he may be able to turn things round. Would it not be better to cut our losses now and seek out the experienced manager that 90% of fans wanted in the first place - and by experienced I mean someone who has had some managerial success either in the English top 2 divisions, or abroad.

I put my vote for souness, and it was an unpopular one. However these lying toads have put Mr Berg in place and I think he deserves more time.

He doesn't come accross as an 4rse licker, he doesn't sweeten things up, and he doesn't tell blatant lies, so we're streets ahead of our previous disaster.

Mr Berg has to work with shirky singh, which cannot be easy, considering he knows it all. He also has a load of unwanted players who came for an untrustworthy manager, and he has the job of sifting through and trying to get some match time out of the best of a bad bunch.

There's probably no one on the planet who could make things work without a lot of luck considering the moral sapping two years of missguided hell the players have been through, but we have some honesty and integrity which is a start.

The club will never be efficient whilst it has liars and cheats in charge so the best we can hope for is a mediocrity, Mr Berg has an uphill task working for the dregs of society, he will need all the luck he can get, I want him to steady the ship, I'm sure he will if he gets some more time.

That's the problem nurseman, I honestly don't think they have the 1st clue or understanding of what they have destroyed and what BRFC means to the town and supporters.

Instead of listening to vultures like Kean, Anderson and the likes (who saw Venkys coming a mile off) they should have listened to the people that knew the club inside out. Oh but no, they thought they knew best.

The damage is almost complete. Jacks legacy is all but destroyed by those parasites. The one last saving grace we have is that Berg surely realises what Kean was in denial about and that he is out of his depth. It pains me to say that about a playing legend but after Cardiff and the 'Pool on Saturday I am without doubt Bergs bit of far more than he can chew.

If Singh and his cronies want to win the fans over, they need to get on hands and knees, break the bank (whats left in it) and beg Hughes or Souness to come back and sort out this bunch of unfit, uninspired, overpaid journeymen (Etuhu,Murphy spring to mind) and hope they can rescue the worst season since I started watching Rovers as a kid back in 1982.

You're right about Kean by the way, he was very talented - in the art of manipulation, propaganda, lying and backstabbing.

Of course they are aware of what they have done and that's why they daren't show their faces within 100 miles of Ewood park. They were found out to be lying also, very early on in their tenure.
I still haven't forgotten the promise "to INVEST £5 million each transfer window." Selling players to buy inferior ones is not investing.

I agree with this also but Venkys have a track record of getting rid first and then signing someone four weeks later from portugal or fulham reserves.

For the first time in my entire 38 years of following our beloved I walked off yesterday in the 81st minute, and as I wandered off lonely as a eyesore dejected Blackpool popped another free header in !

Hearing my fellow supporter (justifiably) laying into what is a shambles breaks my chuffing heart leaving me with an absolute empty feeling as to the route ahead ? These players that are donning the B&W shirt at present are damned and woefully lacking any confidence with the **** that as engulfed BRFC, and in the middle of all this is Henning Berg attempting in finding a solution ?

Up to the goal Rovers were in control, but as soon as the goal went in you could sense immediately the confusion within the ranks - absolutely no team ethic whatsoever just individuals attempting in rectifying the situation. Of course, had the chances gone in then possibly we could have witnessed a different game, but I doubt it as the non team ethic would have been exposed ?

Three positives for me - just - Givet, Lowe and SV the rest and in particular Dann were woeful. A truly shocking state of affairs. January is the only salvation that I can glean from all this and that is on a wing a and a prayer !

Should this continue then relegation is a real threat.

I simply refuse to put myself through the grinder any longer with this. From the boardroom to the field of play into the stands we are eating ourselves alive whilst Nero fiddled as Rome burned.

A pitiful state of affairs. A circus complete with all fools.

Please don't take my Rovers away !

Arte et labore
yes the way Givet gave his man a free header for the second goal was a real positive!
Touche Ewood say that :)l !

Had I not left, as I said, for the first time ever at the 81st minute then I would have witnessed Givets dereliction of duty, but throughout the game, and not to contradict here, Givet, as always gave it his best shot considering he had been sidelined for - how long ?

Givets worst performance would still stand out as to the best performance by that destroyed fellow Dann !

Arte et labore which in these circumstances falls far below the standard for BRFC - thus I get your point well made.

Totally agree..... 90% of Rovers fans were calling for an experienced manager. It was Singh, who in his wisdom, ignored everyone and insisted we didn't need experience and seemed to prefer ex players..Sherwood, Mc Kinley and we ended up with Berg. As you say this is a very difficult league to get out of and we need a hard, tough experienced manager out of the Souness / Hughes mould.
AGREE !
IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS KEAN RESIGNED AND TWO COACHES GOT APPOINTED AND BOTH EX-PLAYERS .
ONE THE PERSONAL DISASTER AND PATHETICLY INEPT AT COACHING HENDRY , WHO ARRIVED WITH THE FANFARE AND COMMENTS OF " I`VE CAME BACK HERE TO SORT THIS DEFENCE OUT AND TO STOP IT LEAKING IN GOALS ,I`M HERE TO HELP STEVEN (KEAN) "
THE OTHER PERSON THAT HAS CAME IN WHEN KEAN RESIGNED WAS ANOTHER EX PLAYER HENNING BERG , BOTH EX PLAYERS , QUESTION IS ,
WHO IS THE PERSON THAT ULTIMATELY MADE THE DECISIONS TO BRING THESE TWO GUYS IN ?

WHO BROUGHT THESE TWO /
MOST OF US WOULD ASSUME IT WAS SHEBBY SINGH , THE GUY WHO HAS NOT A CLUE ,AND THINKS THAT WE CARE MORE ABOUT EX PLAYERS COMING BACK TO ROVERS THAN WE DO ABOUT OUR FOOTBALL CLUB BEING SUCCESSFUL.

SHEBBY WE DO NOT GIVE A MONKEYS ABOUT EX PLAYERS ,GET RID OF BOTH OF THE CLOWNS.
PLAYERS ,EX PLAYERS ,THE MODERN DAY FOOTBALLERS ARE JUST MONEY HUNGRY GREEDY PEOPLE, APART FROM THE GUYS FROM WAY BACK IN THE 50/60/70` S , THE GUYS FROM OR AROUND OUR HOME TOWN ,THE PEOPLE THAT KNOW WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO BE WEARING A ROVERS SHIRT ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
But Hughes is an ex player as well which was flagged up early in your post by your highlighting bullsheite app, which puts all bullsheite in caps so we can ignore it.
CORRECT , Hughes is an ex-player but LISTEN "stupid ar5e" where in my post did I say I wanted Hughes back ?
I wanted Holloway or McCarthy in , but guys that have successful history and experience in what it takes to get out of this league.

ALL YOU WANT TO RM7/RUinsane the one and same IS GET ROVERS TO SPEND/SPEND /SPEND SO YOUR AGENT BOSS CAN RAKE MORE MNEY IN FROM ROVERS ,AND NO DOUBT EARN YOU A FAT BONUS FROM YOUR BOSS , WE CLEARLY HAVE LIMITED FUNDS NOW , ANY MONEY SHOULD BE KEPT TILL EITHER BERG PROVES HE CAN DO THE JOB,OR WE GET A NEW MANAGER IN WITH EXPERIENCE AND A PAIR OF BALLS.

The fact is Blackburn can't afford to "give Berg until the end of the season" to see if it works out or not. You obviously don't understand the financial consequences of failure this season.

I'm not condoning anti-Berg chants, they don't help the cause a dot, but the sentiment of those fans wanting Berg out is correct.

Berg was without question the WRONG choice for this club, right now, in this clubs state, with what little 'experience' he has and with what is at stake. The results are proving it. As bad as Kean was, at least he had the squad challenging for promotion, which is the very least it should be doing given the talent we have.

Its all getting way out of hand and i'm frankly bored of reading the same old look on the positive side posts...
so it seems that the solution almost everyone is calling for is to give Berg the sack and get another manager in...and then if the new, new manager loses two or three of his first few games in charge - then we can always sack him as well eh?....good job Man Utd didn't bottle it and sack Fergie all those years ago - and I am not comparing him to Berg - just making the point you can stick or change/twist with a manager and we stuck with Kean for far too long - so we eventually changed/twisted and put Berg in place. No more changes in the managers seat now - let Berg sort out the clubs players and staff, get them fit, get the wasters and rubbish out and bring in the players in the critical positions that everyone can see we need. No way are Rovers going to change managers again now and neither should they. Time for some strength on and off the field..

He didn't know anyone else apart from his ex-TV buddies, so once he couldn't get them he was f@cked.

Just no idea.

I said initially HB needs time to cleanse the club of the Keane legacy and I'll stick with that. You can't undo in a matter of weeks what's been done over two years . Trouble is, his chances of ever doing it - or anyone else's for that matter - are seriously hindered by the idiots running the show.

Captain Dreckley says...

The make or break of our season will depend on two factors, resources being made available for Berg to revamp this squad and his ability to sign players who will make a team fit and proud to wear the shirt. If, at the end of January, we still have the same squad we have major problems and will be lucky to stay in the Championship. A major concern has to be around offloading all the deadwood and their associated wages. Some of the contracts awarded to players well beyond their best defies belief and they will have no motivation to be moved on. Quite frankly, looking at our midfield I would give Tugay a 12 month deal, he has more passion and commitment to this club than any of our soi called experienced central midfielders.
Only 2 weeks till January then lets see what happens

The only hope is that the hierarchy at the club start learning from their mistakes and eventually appoint a manager with suitable managerial experience.

Shebby Singh needs to carry the can for this as Berg shouldn't have been appointed in the first place.

Its an absolute joke that Palace, Ipswich, Bolton, Blackpool and even the Dingles ended up making a better managerial appointment than us.

At th end of last season when the inevitable relegation happened, all the fans were at a low ebb and knew that Kean had to go.

For reasons that the fans will never know, he was allowed to continue and also worse than that, brought in players that just do not cut the mustard. Had we done the right thing, after relegation and appointed the right manager, who could have then used the money available to bring in players capable of playing in the championship, we would not be in this mess now.

To compound the problem of leaving Kean as manager, the next HUGE mistake was sending the so called saviour, Shebby Singh. I have never in over 40 years of watching football, heard anyone talk so much hot air. His first fans meeting resulted in him having to apologis to the manager and the players for his insults to them and his latest public airing on Radio Lancashire was nothing but an embarrasment. With him running the show on behalf of the clueless owners, the future will be bleak or none existent!
At th end of last season when the inevitable relegation happened, all the fans were at a low ebb and knew that Kean had to go.

Blackburn did a good job in last match, but truely unlucky otherwise the result should be 4-2. We missed all the clear chances, it shows the players are little down with confideance. Fans need to support the players and club to improve the game weekin weekout.

All the best for next match at home..

I don't want our players fail again and again, there is some thing wrong.
So Get OUT ALL and Start Fresh with 25 players to build a good team and bounce back.
That sounds like a fantastic plan..... But please tell me where the money is going to come from??? Venky's do not have that kind of money as the accounts that were recently published show.

I agree we need a new man in charge, but Souness still was a judas to the ex champions of 95!

His betrayal won't be forgotten!
And not born in Blackburn either......

And as the venky scum and their shysters have devalued our once proud Club to the present level of worthlessness, they can't even sell us on as they've been rumoured to have been trying to do since before the end of last season, so we're stuck with them and their ex Kuala Lumpar F.C. global dimsh#t shabby sh#te. My fear is that as selling usis out of the qustion,they'll most likely do what they've done before with ailing buisinesses that they've had on their books, guess they'll hang on for the next parachute payment though.

Lots of comments about Souness coming back to Rovers, a real tough guySouness and a top manager , but I doubt he will ever want to join up with Hendry at Rovers , when Hendry was playing for Bolton Wanderers and Souness was Rovers manager , Hendry made some comment to Souness at a game , where Souness came to watch , Souness went straight for Hendry pinned him against the wall ,Souness had his right hand around Hendry`s throat and his left hand twisting a delicate part of a Hendry`s anatomy ,Hendry absolutely sh*t himself , so would doubt if they two would ever work together I think if they appointed Souness at Rovers Hendry would scuttle out the door very,very quickly.

Thats what we are short of. Some passion, determination, toughness, somebody who will step forward and give everybody a kick up the hootsie, preferably one big one to Shebby, hard enough to put him into the next galaxy

The make or break of our season will depend on two factors, resources being made available for Berg to revamp this squad and his ability to sign players who will make a team fit and proud to wear the shirt.

A major concern has to be around offloading all the deadwood and their associated wages. Some of the contracts awarded to players well beyond their best defies belief and they will have no motivation to be moved on. Quite frankly, looking at our midfield I would give Tugay a 12 month deal, he has more passion and commitment to this club than any of our soi called experienced central midfielders.
Only 2 weeks till January then lets see what happens
agree entirely CD to do anything else would be ridiculous. In fact he has to have until the end of the season at least to make any impression on this side and the almighty mess that we have been left with. Some folks are asking for Souness and Hughes and others without thinking who would actually want to come here now if they sacked Berg? I think the baying mob has almost certainly put anyone of any merit off the job at Ewood for years to come. I bet even Steve Kean would turn us down now....

The message is clear - Back berg the Iceman now - before he walks away from the job - or forever hold your heads in shame at having driven away a decent and honest man who cares about the club.

What people are failing to realise is that Berg inherited this shambles of a squad!! He needs time to clear out the dead wood and bring his own players in.

Some of you fans remind me of Liverpool fans! Liverpool fans still live in the 70s-80s they think they are a top 5 side...........WRONG
!!!! They have 1 world class player who is coming to the end of his career!!!

We need to open our eyes and realise some of the players we have are ****!! So Berg in Jan needs to cash in (if he can) on the likes of Scott Dann, Paul Robinson, Murphy, Etuhu, David Goodwillie and bring some decent talent in.

For me the failures in the team at the moment are tactical and the buck stops with Berg on this account.
Is Berg frieightened of making subs? It seems every game, we will be loosing and impact sub appears at about 80 mins, changes the game but far too late to change the result.
Against Cardiff, they were playing a high pressure strategy, a decent manager would have seen this within the first few minuites and either A) Matched it or B) Countered it. Berg did neither and we inevitably lost.

Sorry, I didn't realise that I wasn't allowed to travel to Blackburn and pay to watch Rovers play (I.e. support them as opposed to being an armchair fan) because I wasn't born or live in Blackburn. Why not insist on the whole team having to be born and live in Blackburn? What next - Kean out, Venkys out, Berg out, supporters from Yorkshire out?
