Rhodes hoping for some festive cheer

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

JORDAN Rhodes believes Blackburn Rovers can use a hectic festive period as a Championship turning point as he looks for momentum to breathe new life into their ailing promotion push.

Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Blackpool was Rovers’ fourth defeat in their last five matches as they slipped to 15th in the table, seven points adrift of the play-off places.

The weekend’s visit of Brighton is the first of four matches in the space of 10 days and, as Rovers look for just their second win under boss Henning Berg, Rhodes knows the importance of finding that ‘winning mentality’.

The Lancashire Telegraph understands that the expected backroom changes at Ewood Park have now been put on hold until January, with former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald still a target for Berg.

Rhodes said: “The season is not even half way through yet, there are going to be lots of twists and turns along the way.

“There are going to be teams who are not in it at the moment in it by the end and teams that will hope for promotion that might not even be in the top six at the moment.

“You only have to look at Reading last season. “There are plenty of points up for grabs still, there are plenty of games to play and we just have to enjoy it between now and the end of the season.

“You look at Reading’s form last season, where they came from nowhere to get promoted. Winning breeds a positive mentality. “It is an important Christmas period coming up and going into the New Year it would be nice to pick up a head of steam coming into the play off time.

“There are a lot of points on offer in a very short space of time. “It has to be up to us to be on our toes, on our best physical game and to try and do the best we can. “The games are coming thick and fast and that is a good chance for us. We have to have the mentality that there are a lot of points up for grabs and that is a good chance for us to turn it round.”

Rhodes has scored 11 goals in 19 games since since signing for Rovers from Huddersfield for £8million in August.

While Rovers falter in the wrong half of the table, level on points with his former Terriers’ team-mates, Rhodes insists he still has no regrets about his big-money switch.

He said: “I am really enjoying my time here. “It is a fantastic club, with good people, good players and good staff. It is a joy to be around and it is a pleasure working with some of the players.

“We have a good chance to put things right and that is starting with Brighton on Saturday. That is what we are going to have to do.

“The results haven’t been too great of late but we just have to work as hard as we can and try to turn things around and try and get the results we believe we can get.

“We have been playing alright at times and not picking up the wins. We will take a couple of scruffy performances, a couple of bad games but staying tight and getting the wins.”

B*llshit is the order of the day at Ewood. I doubt we will win another game this year. I'm sure Rhodes will wander around up front displaying his snail pace and contributing little else unless the ball is put on a platter for him. Berg is not the answer
What more can he contribute when he's put up front on his own?? Even so he has still managed 11 goals so far in a struggling side!! Take your drivel talk somewhere else please!!

So BM and EB etc have to carry on working, "giving their best", expecting players to "listen to them, try to impress them, be motivated by them" - when everyone knows they are out the dor in 4 or 5 weeks - this is NOT the way you run a sucessfull football club.

However, it is another great example why Rovers will NEVER be sucessfull whilst Venkys are the owners - football clubs CANNOT be run like food processing factories - that decisions and actions (staff changes) at football clubs need to be taken quickly, not brought in gradually like most work places.

These morons in India are so stupid that after 2 years they keep making the same mistakes, time after time after time.

We really are on the one way track to oblivion under these muppets - and anyone who thinks thats just "doom-monger talk" - what have they got right in 2 years and, have they actually learned fom previous mistakes.

Also, does anyone actually beleive this vague Venky promise that they "will (at some un-named point in the future) put in significant funds to stop us going into administration/liqui
dation"

- They have not put 1 single penny into the club to date - and if they are going to put money into the club then why don't they do it now rather than later - simple, because they are NEVER GOING TO INVEST IN BRFC !!

One of the few players at ewood that I actually have some sympathy for. He obviously moved here expecting a promotion push and a step up from Huddersfield. Not the embarrassment that we have been so far this season. Most of the players are simply not motivated or organised enough to succeed in this division and ultimately you have to question the manager as to why this is the case. The excuse that this isn't Berg's squad just doesn't cut it when you look at what Holloway/McCarthy/Ap
pleton have done with other managers squads.

Correct JC...This is the 5TH transfer window coming up (since Venkys took over) and so far they have got away, as you say, "without investing a single penny."
I saw through them straight away after Mrs "we will INVEST £5 million each transfer window " Desai, first broke her promise.

If you look back to the season Reading came through and got Promotion their results before Christmas were not too bad but also were putting in good displays but just not winning.
They had a settled group of coaching staff, a capable manager and a board that understood football and it's supporters.
Rovers have a huge squad but lack the ingredients needed to challenge for promotion.
The Championship requires more energy and a fitter squad as its duration and physical demands are greater than the Prem.
Berg is clearly out his depth, but cannot be blamed solely on the current situation.
The loss of Williams and Finn was probably the biggest mistake the Venkys made because had these 2 still been at the club 90% of the abysmal signings wouldn't be here and the quality we've shipped out would still be playing in blue and white

I'm afraid our 'promotion push' died, when that IDIOT Singh, ignored all experienced applicants, and gave the managers job to a Norwegian TV pundit.

It pains me to say it, but we looked more likely to go up under that **** Kean, than we do now.

As long as the IDIOTIC Shabby Minge, has anything to do with the hiring and firing down at Ewood, then we'll lurch from one disaster to another. He should have stuck to being a TV pundit, but he didn't appear to be very good at that either. Didn't he once suggest that he'd play Ryan Giggs at full back? He's a complete buffoon!

The team should have a lot more points on the table since Berg took over as manager. What do you expect Shebby Singh to do? Perhaps put himself up to play in team. Berg is trying to change things and as yet not working. Berg has confirmed he makes all the footballing decisions. Berg needs the team to put more effort and work harder and not just turn up on the matchday.

This young man is at least showing the passion that is missing from our club at the moment, as a young player no doubt he appreciates that he is lucky to play at a club with such great heritage, history and achievement that is Rovers. I doubt the rest of the over-paid lazy "experienced" slobs that Kean brought in have anything close to that kind of appreciation, most of them seem to be hear only for their fat final pay day that their mate Kean sorted out for them thanks to the gullible and clueless Venkys.

On a side note, I came across this after the Blackpool game:

"For those asking: Got back to Blackburn station. Waiting for a taxi. Some #Rovers fans decided it would be a good idea to racially abuse some Asian people going into the station and shouting "EDL EDL EDL". I cannot stand racism and applaud the police for their swift action. It would no doubt have kicked off otherwise. Fking scumbags. And I don't care if they are Rovers fans or not. If you can't respect other people just because they have a different colour of skin to you, "

We were only discussing not long ago about the Asian community in Blackburn not attending matches, but with this kind of despicable behaviour - albeit by a minority of idiots - why would they want to? I have witnessed though over the years that there has been a significant rise in Asians attending Rovers matches and stood side by side with everyone and there has never been in my experience any animosity shown at the grounds that I can remember and long may it continue.

I hope those responsible though, hung their heads in shame when they woke up from their drunken stupor the next day. You are not worthy of being called Rovers fans. Shame on you.

Hi JC you are spot on. The club desperately needs sorting but it must be done now not tomorrow. This farce cannot go on. If the existing staff know that their jobs are going what incentive is there left.
We have too many players overweight and blatantly unfit so they just cannot survive for 90 minutes.
Sort it today.

Also, does anyone actually beleive this vague Venky promise that they "will (at some un-named point in the future) put in significant funds to stop us going into administration/liqui dation" - They have not put 1 single penny into the club to date - and if they are going to put money into the club then why don't they do it now rather than later - simple, because they are NEVER GOING TO INVEST IN BRFC !![/p][/quote]Hi JC you are spot on. The club desperately needs sorting but it must be done now not tomorrow. This farce cannot go on. If the existing staff know that their jobs are going what incentive is there left. We have too many players overweight and blatantly unfit so they just cannot survive for 90 minutes. Sort it today. Ronaldpetercooper

Berg needs the team to put more effort and work harder and not just turn up on the matchday.
Hi Mo
The team should have a lot more points on the table since Berg took over? you sound like Kean, did you not see the shambles against Cardiff and the second half at Blackpool,dont give me that "Berg inherited Keans squad", as myself and others have stated on here Holloway/MM/Freedman have all inherited squads from other managers ad they are doing really well, no HB is struggling at the moment and this is a resuts based industry (6 from 27 not good enough).
As for Shebby this man on his own will destroy BRFC , why, because he is the owners right hand man and he does not have a clue what he is doing, coaching staff are going now they are staying,he cannot/will not gv a straight its an absolute shambles down at Ewood and we all know it, what can we do, nothing only watch it all happen.

Let’s blame everyone apart from the one’s responsible!!!......
.......I’m absolutely sure Berg didn’t give instructions for Givet not to pick up in the box giving the player all the room in the world…I’m sure Berg didn’t give instructions to the full back/ cover to give the winger all the space in the world to get a cross over, two individual mistakes that cost two goals(Berg didn’t make the mistakes)………
……..if the players don’t do their job correct then any manager will struggle…………
Berg’s only recourse is to drop players that don’t carry out orders which he did after the Cardiff game……………a
ll these mistakes are costing us points but more importantly the team is now lacking confidence………
…the players have got to take responsibility and make sure their own individual performances are mistake free……Berg can only instruct he can’t mollycoddle these well paid players…..once some of these players grow some ba lls and give Berg the support then we’ll see an improvement, not before!

On a side note, I came across this after the Blackpool game:

"For those asking: Got back to Blackburn station. Waiting for a taxi. Some #Rovers fans decided it would be a good idea to racially abuse some Asian people going into the station and shouting "EDL EDL EDL". I cannot stand racism and applaud the police for their swift action. It would no doubt have kicked off otherwise. Fking scumbags. And I don't care if they are Rovers fans or not. If you can't respect other people just because they have a different colour of skin to you, "

We were only discussing not long ago about the Asian community in Blackburn not attending matches, but with this kind of despicable behaviour - albeit by a minority of idiots - why would they want to? I have witnessed though over the years that there has been a significant rise in Asians attending Rovers matches and stood side by side with everyone and there has never been in my experience any animosity shown at the grounds that I can remember and long may it continue.

I hope those responsible though, hung their heads in shame when they woke up from their drunken stupor the next day. You are not worthy of being called Rovers fans. Shame on you.
Were these the same 'fans' shouting abuse at the players? I get why some on here defend fans' right to vent their spleens during the games and direct it at Venkys and Singh but I dont get it when they direct it at the players and manager. There are some real idiots at Ewood as there are at all grounds but I think this dire, unbelievable situations has sucked a few more idiots out of the earth, those who enjoy shouting abuse more than shouting support. A game spent in the Darwen end is evidence of it. I feel sorry for Rhodes. This is not what he expected Im sure

Ok so I decided to look up some players who could be useful to us. A childish thing to do, I know, but more reliable than our scout department....

Tresor Mputu, 27, an additional striker. Top scorer in Africa and been playing for the full Congo international side since he was 17. Got a 12-month global ban though in 2010. Wouldn't cost much. Was supposed to go to Arsenal a few years ago.

Wilson Palacios, 28, 100% what we need in midfield. Not being used by Stoke, would be a loan but would be worth having him for 6 months.

Eugenio Mena, 24, Chile International midfielder. Much better than our current midfielders, plays in Chile so won't cost too much. No chance of getting him though... The clubs who want him can all offer him European football.

Shikabala, 26, would FINALLY mean we have a link between defence and attack. We've been linked to him since Mark Hughes was here but a 2 year transfer ban meant we couldn't sign him. He's premier league standard (as are all the players i'm suggesting).

Papa Gueye, 28, Senegalese centre back plays for Ukrainian team Metalurg Kharkiv. Seen him a few times in Europe and he was immense. We would finally have the successor to Samba, but this move would never happen, too much of a step down.

Ezequiel Fryers? Maybe getting a youngster at centre-back is too risky, but look at Swansea with Steven Caulker. No idea if he is available to loan in.

Shaun Derry. Yes I know he isn't the most exciting of people to sign, but his effort and contribution would be useful to us right now. He would also make a good leader for the players. I wouldn't count him as deadwood either.

Some other players:-

Gilberto Garcia (Deportivo Pasta, Right back, 25)
Drissa Diakite (Olympiakos, Right back/ Defensive Mid, 27)
Seb Hines (Middlesbrough, Centre Back, 24)

Oh, and a new coaching team/owners/"Global Advisor".

This post was pointless... Just shows how many players there are out there though!

You were well and truly sucked in by Kean's mardy stories. How did he managed to have people walking up to him in the street and pat him on the back if he had to have such high level protection? Rhodes has been given an impossible job.

I was merely pointing out that Rhodes motivation for coming to Blackburn was clearly financial, it has to have been because what up and coming young player would want to come to a club subject to so many uncertainties with owners who don't know the first thing about football?

I haven't felt so sad about the whole situation since the 66/67 season. Then we were relegated almost entirely due to a flu epidemic. We all felt helpless as we watched the rot set in. Where is the bottom now? No-one knows -apart from knowing that while the Indians are in charge we will sink deeper.and deeper By the early 70's we were in the third division and couldn't pay the milk bill. This time around? By the end of this decade we will be lucky to be in the football league if we don't get the clowns out. Further relegation this season beckons. I feel sorry for all the younger fans who have watched the Rovers for the past 20 years and have seen some good times- they don't deserve this farce....

What a shambles! Tell all the coaching staff they are going to be sacked and then tell them not till after christmas. They won't give a toss if Rovers win or lose. It is obvious that Venky's just issue orders to Singh, he then tells everyone else what to do. Remember Kean walked away because he was being told what team to pick. Nothing has changed. Onwards and downwards. League 1 here we come.

To be fair, I agree its not an unfair comment. I doubt he will in January or even next season as I doubt very much we will get relegated.

But long term of course, if we're still in the championship two seasons from now and not looking to be going anywhere then yes I would say even if he wasn't looking to go, the bigger clubs could attract him with hard to resist offers. It's to be expected. As it stands though, hes getting first team football playing alongside experienced players and improving his game at a club that still aspires to return to top flight football at some point - and all that on wages poor Austin can only dream of getting until he leaves his poor-house roots behind him and joins a club that can afford to pay him what he's worth.

Wouldn't be too hard to commute across the motorway for him though..

Unfotunately doh head, when Rhodes was interviewed the other day he actually said he was a Rovers fan. Coming from Oldham and living the bulk of his life in scotland he confessed to being a Celtic and a Rovers fan.
So unlike Austin who is at Bumley for purely financial reasons you are wrong again.

Hi Harwood
Thanks for the stats, proves my pont all along, Shebby went for a cheap yes man, remember two managers withdrew there applications at interview stage, why, it's becoming obvious we picked the wrong one out of five, repeating myself but all these managers inherited squads from managers that left or got sacked but they are doing fine, nothing against HB but 6 out of 27 us just not good enough, who is to blame?

Venkys and there side kick Shebby not really HB, he so an opportunity like Kean and took it even though he had stated anyone who took the job would have to be stupid, well you said it HB!

Venkys out Shebby defiantly out.

Ok so I decided to look up some players who could be useful to us. A childish thing to do, I know, but more reliable than our scout department....

Tresor Mputu, 27, an additional striker. Top scorer in Africa and been playing for the full Congo international side since he was 17. Got a 12-month global ban though in 2010. Wouldn't cost much. Was supposed to go to Arsenal a few years ago.

Wilson Palacios, 28, 100% what we need in midfield. Not being used by Stoke, would be a loan but would be worth having him for 6 months.

Eugenio Mena, 24, Chile International midfielder. Much better than our current midfielders, plays in Chile so won't cost too much. No chance of getting him though... The clubs who want him can all offer him European football.

Shikabala, 26, would FINALLY mean we have a link between defence and attack. We've been linked to him since Mark Hughes was here but a 2 year transfer ban meant we couldn't sign him. He's premier league standard (as are all the players i'm suggesting).

Papa Gueye, 28, Senegalese centre back plays for Ukrainian team Metalurg Kharkiv. Seen him a few times in Europe and he was immense. We would finally have the successor to Samba, but this move would never happen, too much of a step down.

Ezequiel Fryers? Maybe getting a youngster at centre-back is too risky, but look at Swansea with Steven Caulker. No idea if he is available to loan in.

Shaun Derry. Yes I know he isn't the most exciting of people to sign, but his effort and contribution would be useful to us right now. He would also make a good leader for the players. I wouldn't count him as deadwood either.

Some other players:-

Gilberto Garcia (Deportivo Pasta, Right back, 25)
Drissa Diakite (Olympiakos, Right back/ Defensive Mid, 27)
Seb Hines (Middlesbrough, Centre Back, 24)

Oh, and a new coaching team/owners/"Gl
obal Advisor".

This post was pointless... Just shows how many players there are out there though!
Good post, admire your knowledge. I would be trying to get hold of Clueless Singh or the Balraj fella who was getting advice on Facebook all those moons ago.

We need all the advice we can get in these trying times and its scary that there scouts can't get this type of info.. that's assuming Shebmeista believes he needs any - you know, with his wealth of malaysian punditry behind him..

He has changed things to bring more youth but it is not working yet. Do people want Shebby Singh to play?? Last minute goals against Huddersfield and Burnley.

On a side note, I came across this after the Blackpool game:

"For those asking: Got back to Blackburn station. Waiting for a taxi.

If you can't respect other people just because they have a different colour of skin to you, "

We were only discussing not long ago about the Asian community in Blackburn not attending matches, but with this kind of despicable behaviour - albeit by a minority of idiots - why would they want to? I have witnessed though over the years that there has been a significant rise in Asians attending Rovers matches and stood side by side with everyone and there has never been in my experience any animosity shown at the grounds that I can remember and long may it continue.

I hope those responsible though, hung their heads in shame when they woke up from their drunken stupor the next day. You are not worthy of being called Rovers fans. Shame on you.
Were these the same 'fans' shouting abuse at the players? I get why some on here defend fans' right to vent their spleens during the games and direct it at Venkys and Singh but I dont get it when they direct it at the players and manager. There are some real idiots at Ewood as there are at all grounds but I think this dire, unbelievable situations has sucked a few more idiots out of the earth, those who enjoy shouting abuse more than shouting support. A game spent in the Darwen end is evidence of it. I feel sorry for Rhodes. This is not what he expected Im sure
Don't feel sorry for him, he must have been informed by his agent about the on going turmoil at the club but still chose to ignore that and sign.......because he is greedy and saw nothing but the pound signs. But don't worry, he'll be off in January now he's realised that you lot aren't the "BIG" club he thought he'd signed for.
Oh the F@kin scum bags back. What's it like in little town today.
Woah woah woah (sweet child o'mine) that's a bit harsh, no need for that. Are you having a bad day?
I was merely pointing out that Rhodes motivation for coming to Blackburn was clearly financial, it has to have been because what up and coming young player would want to come to a club subject to so many uncertainties with owners who don't know the first thing about football? I don't think anyone can disagree and I don't think that's an unfair comment.
I can honestly see him wanting to leave in January the way things are going and maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing for you lot, cash in on him while his stock is still quite high.
Unfotunately doh head, when Rhodes was interviewed the other day he actually said he was a Rovers fan. Coming from Oldham and living the bulk of his life in scotland he confessed to being a Celtic and a Rovers fan.
So unlike Austin who is at Bumley for purely financial reasons you are wrong again.
Austin GONE IN JAN Bye Charlie.
When he was at Huddersfield he said he'd always been a fan of them too. How strange eh M7 ? A footballer saying things like that? Trying to endear himself to the fans? The scoundrel !

Try looking past the end of your enormous nose now and again.

Good un, once someone triggers his 2 million buy out clause I take it :0)
I believe you are correct about young Mr Austin spending a morning down at Brockhall, I heard he was was brought in by a panic stricken Henning Berg to give a finishing masterclass to the misfiring Blackburn strike force.
The writings in the sand fanny boy.. when a manager declares that he isnt prepared to let a player go unless the fees right, he's as good as gone.

Yeh he will have been made aware of the ownership and management structure but a lot of people more experienced have been taken in by Steve Kean, the British media, other managers and football fans so the young Rhodes cant be blamed for going the same way. He'll have convinced him we will be promoted and in champions league first season back.

I reckon that Venkys have a hidden agenda of destroying the club and building a poultry farm at Ewood!. Otherwise why would they make so many idiotic and unbelievable decisions?
I think the fans should act now and set up another club just as Wimbledon did. Obviously an empty stadium is the only way Venkys will listen.

Right now were lucky to have him but if shebby keeps sticking his nose in then henning will leave. Shebby wanted change but it's berg putting his foot down and well done to him...!

On a side note, I came across this after the Blackpool game:

"For those asking: Got back to Blackburn station. Waiting for a taxi.

I cannot stand racism and applaud the police for their swift action. It would no doubt have kicked off otherwise. Fking scumbags. And I don't care if they are Rovers fans or not. If you can't respect other people just because they have a different colour of skin to you, "

We were only discussing not long ago about the Asian community in Blackburn not attending matches, but with this kind of despicable behaviour - albeit by a minority of idiots - why would they want to? I have witnessed though over the years that there has been a significant rise in Asians attending Rovers matches and stood side by side with everyone and there has never been in my experience any animosity shown at the grounds that I can remember and long may it continue.

I hope those responsible though, hung their heads in shame when they woke up from their drunken stupor the next day. You are not worthy of being called Rovers fans. Shame on you.
Were these the same 'fans' shouting abuse at the players? I get why some on here defend fans' right to vent their spleens during the games and direct it at Venkys and Singh but I dont get it when they direct it at the players and manager. There are some real idiots at Ewood as there are at all grounds but I think this dire, unbelievable situations has sucked a few more idiots out of the earth, those who enjoy shouting abuse more than shouting support. A game spent in the Darwen end is evidence of it. I feel sorry for Rhodes. This is not what he expected Im sure
Don't feel sorry for him, he must have been informed by his agent about the on going turmoil at the club but still chose to ignore that and sign.......because he is greedy and saw nothing but the pound signs. But don't worry, he'll be off in January now he's realised that you lot aren't the "BIG" club he thought he'd signed for.
Oh the F@kin scum bags back. What's it like in little town today.
Woah woah woah (sweet child o'mine) that's a bit harsh, no need for that. Are you having a bad day?
I was merely pointing out that Rhodes motivation for coming to Blackburn was clearly financial, it has to have been because what up and coming young player would want to come to a club subject to so many uncertainties with owners who don't know the first thing about football? I don't think anyone can disagree and I don't think that's an unfair comment.
I can honestly see him wanting to leave in January the way things are going and maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing for you lot, cash in on him while his stock is still quite high.
Unfotunately doh head, when Rhodes was interviewed the other day he actually said he was a Rovers fan. Coming from Oldham and living the bulk of his life in scotland he confessed to being a Celtic and a Rovers fan.
So unlike Austin who is at Bumley for purely financial reasons you are wrong again.
Austin GONE IN JAN Bye Charlie.
When he was at Huddersfield he said he'd always been a fan of them too. How strange eh M7 ? A footballer saying things like that? Trying to endear himself to the fans? The scoundrel !

Try looking past the end of your enormous nose now and again.
A bit of straw clutching there doh boy. When your mate Austin was thinking he may have a shout for England, hahahahaha, Rhodes was saying how he loves Rovers and always has. Says he's always been a fan. Austin on the other hand when asked what he thought about Bumley said, is something burning? Someone said this was west ham.

There you go again holding on tightly to the past, just let go. Seems to be quite a problem for you lot.
Thats because like a lot of successful clubs who have been in the premier league recently, we have a past worth referring back to. Burnley fans havent. It's as simple as that.
The more you say Georgie the bigger the hole you dig.
There's only one hole around here Hardwoodglue and that's just off junction 4 of the M65 at the Ewood Mud Hut, I think it's one of those sinkholes that the people opposed to "fracking" have gone on about. It certainly sounds like one.
Whatever the story that comes out of Ewood just embarrasses you further. The whole football world cannot believe what is going on down there. Hand on heart, part of me genuinely feels sorry for you lot.

There you go again holding on tightly to the past, just let go. Seems to be quite a problem for you lot.
And there you go again, wishing you had a past worth remembering. Face facts d1ckhead if you're under 50 you have no memory of any success at that beloved club. And don't say you wouldn't do the same. I'm constantly reminded by my father in law of the league title in the early 60's and European games. On the small screen at your ground I saw black and white footage of your glory days and some colour footage of less memorable success(league survival in 87). Your problem is jealousy , pure and simple . You've not had 10% of the good times we have during the lives of most supporters. Your biggest claim to fame from the mid 80's to the late 90's was your hooligan element, laughably called the suicide squad. Did it ever dawn on them that suicide is the act of killing yourself? No wonder watching that dog5hit that was served up weekly in the 3rd and 4th divisions. The fans killing themselves while the 10bob millionaire chairmen were killing the club by dipping in and filling their own pockets. Come to think of it, yes it makes sense that your full of bitter deep-rooted vitriolic hatred for us!

For as long as Venkys are here, we will continue to fall. There is no way the club can continue with these clowns in charge.

There is no sign that the 2-year long plummet is over, we are still going down. We have been outplayed several times this season, that isn't the way of teams with a chance of promotion.

The longer this goes on, the deeper the damage gets. Ultimately, the club needs money to spend money. If the attendance continue as they are, there will be little money in a few seasons time. Although that might force the clowns out, nobody is going to take the club back to it's glory days.

As much as I want us to succeed, we aren't doing and we aren't going to until Venkys pack their bags. Anyone thinking this whole thing will just even out and we will get back on our feet sooner or later are irrationally wishful. What have they done since arriving other than making us the mockery of the football league?

As someone from the south who has watched footie since 1958, I do not draw any distinction between the past records of Rovers, Burnley, Blackburn or Preston. I have supported Rovers since moving here, but I can recall great players from all 4 of the East Lancs clubs - Connelly, Pointer, Douglas, Finney, Clayton, Whelan, Mclroy, Adamson to name but a few. Whilst Rovers have had the better of the last few years, most of their success came a long time ago. To ridicule any of the 4 clubs achievements is a bit daft because they have all had great times.

Furious Blackburn manager Henning Berg stormed out of the club’s Christmas party after he was made to wear a stocking on his head and dance on stage.

The humiliating incident on Monday night is bound to cast more doubt over Berg’s future at Ewood Park just seven weeks after he returned as manager.

Blackburn have recorded only one win from nine games under Berg, leading to speculation he could be sacked by Indian owners Venky’s if results do not improve dramatically.

There you go again holding on tightly to the past, just let go. Seems to be quite a problem for you lot.
And there you go again, wishing you had a past worth remembering. Face facts d1ckhead if you're under 50 you have no memory of any success at that beloved club.

On the small screen at your ground I saw black and white footage of your glory days and some colour footage of less memorable success(league survival in 87). Your problem is jealousy , pure and simple . You've not had 10% of the good times we have during the lives of most supporters. Your biggest claim to fame from the mid 80's to the late 90's was your hooligan element, laughably called the suicide squad. Did it ever dawn on them that suicide is the act of killing yourself? No wonder watching that dog5hit that was served up weekly in the 3rd and 4th divisions.

Right on the button again Walshy. The anger and bitterness runs deep in the vains.

I remember back in 2000 when they got promoted to what was then Div 1 and seeing Steve Davis (a so called legend who sh1t all over 'em at the first opportunity) on the town hall balcony with a microphone shouting about playing Rovers with all the rock apes banging their chests and gurning - f*cking comedy and sums em up perfectly.

Oh the joys of pouring salt into the still gaping raw wounds after the glorious 90's by smashing them 7-0 on aggregate that season.

A past to be proud of my mate, its what gets us thro the bad times. Dingles can't even have that crumb of comfort, unless they're on the pension then they might just remember good times!
On that 2000 promotion, I remember listening on radio Lancashire to their gob-5hites singing "bring on the b@stards" at Gillingham. And bring em on we did on the 17th Dec, lead by fearless Souness staring the inbreds down as he lead his team into the tu.rd. The rest is history but I remember at either half or full time as the bedraggled scruffs made trudged off the pitch, the wife beating padiham p1sstank made a gesture of self satisfying to the Rovers fans and before he could make it to the safety of that cheap plastic tunnel extension, a half eaten meat and potatoe pie hit him full in the boat. April fools day at Ewood was good , the 5-0 demolition & us back on our way up but the 2-0 on't tuff was better for me.
Every time they get a chance to right what they see as the wrongs of us stopping them doing the double in 1960 (the hatred started then apparently)by beating in the cup semi, they fu.ck it up in monumental fashion. Called having no balls and still being jinxed by the 34 year hoodo we have over them.
The song that belted out from the blue and white faithful on 2nd Dec in that wooden seated, dark miserable, 5hithole of an away end ,said it all.....
You'll Never Beat The Rovers!!
Great memories... looking back at that team and our manager we oozed quality and class that night.

Kevin Ball's attack on Dunny nearly started a 22 man brawl and the atmosphere was as poison as I'd ever seen at a football match.
Ball was a f*cking nutter and I remember thinking if only Souness was 10 years younger he'd have wiped Ball of his boot like a piece of sh1t.
I thought that 3rd world cardboard stand we were in was gonna collapse when Bent scored!! That was the best of the lot, 2-0 in your dingle dome!! 17 years of dingle desperation and we disposed of em like an old carrier bag...... brilliant night.

If you get bored and fancy some nostalgia mate, I think it's on Youtube.
I wondered where you were going with that last line of "IF YOU GET BORED AND FANCY SOME".....you see that what happens when you shoeless meths swillers get all excited about your "salad days", you get all frisky with one another and want to form a daisy chain.

Its time the Venkeys took some good old fashioned East Lancs advice and fired Shebby off as he has no idea how to put things right.The evidence is there for all to see he was responsible for the massive input of Portugese players none of whom have maintained or even managed to get a place in the starting eleven.The fiasco of informing the fans that ex Barcelona and Madrid managers were interested in the vacant managers job and then 5 weeks later giving it to another tv pundit because he interviewed well.I do not know if the Venkeys wanted a gamble or they could not afford a proper experienced manager but where do we go from here if they panic and fire Berg do they allow Charlie Charlie to look for a replacement or would it not be better sacking Chaplin and bringing in Souness to get rid of the rubbish?

There you go again holding on tightly to the past, just let go. Seems to be quite a problem for you lot.
And there you go again, wishing you had a past worth remembering. Face facts d1ckhead if you're under 50 you have no memory of any success at that beloved club. And don't say you wouldn't do the same. I'm constantly reminded by my father in law of the league title in the early 60's and European games. On the small screen at your ground I saw black and white footage of your glory days and some colour footage of less memorable success(league survival in 87). Your problem is jealousy , pure and simple . You've not had 10% of the good times we have during the lives of most supporters. Your biggest claim to fame from the mid 80's to the late 90's was your hooligan element, laughably called the suicide squad. Did it ever dawn on them that suicide is the act of killing yourself? No wonder watching that dog5hit that was served up weekly in the 3rd and 4th divisions. The fans killing themselves while the 10bob millionaire chairmen were killing the club by dipping in and filling their own pockets. Come to think of it, yes it makes sense that your full of bitter deep-rooted vitriolic hatred for us!
BOOM! Right on the button again Walshy. The anger and bitterness runs deep in the vains. I remember back in 2000 when they got promoted to what was then Div 1 and seeing Steve Davis (a so called legend who sh1t all over 'em at the first opportunity) on the town hall balcony with a microphone shouting about playing Rovers with all the rock apes banging their chests and gurning - f*cking comedy and sums em up perfectly. Oh the joys of pouring salt into the still gaping raw wounds after the glorious 90's by smashing them 7-0 on aggregate that season. I won't say too much more on the topic otherwise I'll be accused of living in the past. RTID

Ah Rover75, the other half of the chuckle brothers, I wondered when you'd surface. Yes you're right, you're another one who can't wait to get his Delorian up to 88 mph and fire yourself "back to the glory days". You keep clinging on to those memories because there's going to be nothing between now and when you're sat in a chair staring out of the window of the retirement home (you may already be there) drooling, with your pants filled with urine and stool, to keep you smiling.

.........but there again, it's making me smile :
Hi George, it's me - Rovers75 but unfortunately I had to re register 'cos some silly person took something I wrote to heart and reported me. Bless 'em.

The main thing is I'm back and have just been having a good old laugh to myself about the Delorean gag - quite funny that for a gurning mincer George, I'll give you that one. Thing is though the memories are fresh in the head because it's a very recent past, unlike Bitter FC, who really would need a time machine to get that far back.

Plus a Delorean in Bonleh just isn't right either. I think a Sierra with a Dare to Dream sticker in the back window would be more apt........
