Blackburn Rovers boss feels the frustration

A FRUSTRATED Henning Berg conceded the Ewood Park pitch was unplayable when it was postponed on Saturday afternoon – but believes playing the ‘waiting game’ would have given it a chance.

Blackburn Rovers’ boss was left helpless as the club slipped to 17th – a point behind rivals Burnley – after their Championship visit of Brighton was called off due to torrential rain in East Lancashire.

Referee Robert Madeley made the call at 12.15pm when he arrived at Ewood Park, leaving Rovers supporters and the travelling Brighton army of 600 furious.

Berg admits the pitch was waterlogged when the decision was made but wanted the referee to put the postponement on hold for an hour to give the game a chance of going ahead.

Part of Madeley’s decision was based on the weather forecast predicting heavier rain would follow, although the downpours did ease during the afternoon with Accrington Stanley’s visit of Plymouth going ahead.

Berg said: “Two things. One we are frustrated the game has been called off. We were looking to this game as a good opportunity to get a win again and playing at home. We have two away games coming up so we would have liked to have played this game.

“Also we are disappointed it was called off so early at 12.30pm. With the weather changing you don’t know what it is going to be like – even though the forecast says it is going to rain.

“But you don’t know, that is a forecast and why it is a called a forecast. If they made the decision an hour later maybe it would have been different.

“There is no chance we could have played if the conditions were the same as they were at 12.30pm. I don’t think it would have made any difference for the Brighton fans though to have waited because they would have travelled too far anyway.

“We would have liked to have played the game there is no doubt but we will train so we are prepared. The only good thing about it when games are called of you prefer them to be at home so you can have a proper training session.

“It was a refereeing decision. Nobody could influence him either way, that is the referee who made that decision. Maybe it would have been the same at 1.30pm but it would have been easier to accept.”

Rovers’ managing director Derek Shaw was also left frustrated at the postponement, with the club counting the financial costs, but insists there was nothing they could do to influence the decision.

He said: “I had a phone call from the club secretary, who had been contacted by the groundsman over his concerns about the pitch. We contacted the referee who said he was due at the club at 12.15pm.

“His inspection took minutes before he called the game off and it was partly based on a very poor weather forecast for Saturday afternoon.

“It is difficult because had the referee waited and called it off late, that would have been wrong. He wanted to make an early decision and that will get criticised too. They are horrendous decisions to make.”

Referee Madeley, said after calling the game off: “I got a phone call on my way over saying there could be a potential issue so we’ve gone out and had a look.

“The forecast going forward is just rain for the full afternoon. There’s standing water on the pitch already and there’s really nowhere for it to go.

“The last thing we want to do is to call games off but for the safety of the players it is a decision we have had to make.

“We wanted a game of football, Brighton have come a long way to discover the game is off, but we due have a duty of care to the players, and the fans, in weather like this.

“It is a shame but it is the correct decision.”

Its Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of Blackburn
We can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time
But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
It's hard but when you're having fun
There's a world outside called Burnley
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is them drinking Netto beer
The six fingered lot who live there
All wear Claret and Blue
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
Well it won't be fun in Burn-l-ey this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is fags
They'll be smashing up their town
Fighting over a pound
Do they know they've got a League 2 ground...

Oh all the excuses are rolling off the Tongue now! They've had 2 days to think of them and that's the best they can come up with?

Accy Stanley got their game on mostly due to tge efforts of the club as a whole including the supporters helping out. Would that have happened at Ewood ? No I don't think so. That's because they all despise their own team and are far too selfish to muck in and help out. Those glory days seem a long way away now dont they?

The fact they didn't get this game on with the "Premiership" ground they have and the "Premiership" facilities at their disposal should mean an automatic points deduction without doubt.

For Dung-Berg to claim it should have been left another hour before it was called off is a total insult to the hundreds of loyal Brighton fans who would have got even closer with even further to travel back for a wasted journey. They will have to now make that trip on a cold wet Tuesday
Night in January instead.

An embarrassment to the footballing world.

Well done Accy Stanley for getting your game on, a proper family club with loving caring fans, you're a credit to your town.

Actually quite funny! As a special treat you can sit next to the driver on the sunshine bus today!

A couple of ironic lyrics though, the mention of water flowing ??? And the mention of a league 2 ground. League 2 grounds still manage to play football matches on them despite water flowing!!!

'Loving, caring fans' that's nice, not all fans can be a credit to their. Some like to smash up their own town centre - now that's something to be proud of.

Having said that the re-working of do they know it's Christmas above is a bit embarrassing and all a bit off topic.

No idea if the game call off was a conspiracy or not, but with two away games, the Xmas party antics and the situation with coaches, it appears that Berg is in a difficult position.

Anyone note that goodwillie scored 2 against Celtic in a closed door game
During the week! Still a decent centre mid and
Centre back required!

Who could this also apply to? (Taken from BBC sport and Harry RedKnapp’s QPR)

"There are a lot of players at this club who earn far too much money," he said. "Far too much for their ability and what they give to the club….."A lot of agents made money out of them ," Redknapp said.
Are we going to see more of the bizarre transfer dealings that have plighted the venky’s ownership when the transfer window opens in Jan
Such as the Portuguese signings and the likes of Murphy and Etuhu ! ok the last 2 might have originally looked decent signings but have failed miserably and certainly fall into the category of player that Redknapp is referring to.
The only people who have benefited from our transfer dealings are agents and some of their clients. You only have to look at the last information made public regarding agents fees to be aware of that.
But why then do our owners put up with this? Why allow this to continue?
Paying vast amounts to agents for poor substandard products, what sort of business model does this fit?
I cannot believe that successful business owners can be so naïve
We will have to wait and see what happens in the window if anything happens, as the financial situation appears dire.
Will Berg be allowed to sign his own targets?,
Will Singh make the calls or do our signings come from other people from around the club?
Who knows? The water remains extremely murky around Ewood Park

What must be more frustrating for Berg must be the cr*p that clysterf*ck Singh continues to spout if the Mirror are to be believed. They quote Singh as saying Rovers can sack Berg and that another manager not available at the time of Bergs appointment is now available. No matter what any Rovers fan thinks of Berg. Singh spouting off like this can only unsettle and undermine the manager he appointed and the entire squad moral and confidence. Time for Venkys to realise yet another mistake on their part bringing this clown to the club and get rid before he does any more damage, this man is on a par with Kean. Taxi for Singh.

Boo hoo hoo thick bread.

Whats wrong? Worried your mediocre achievement of getting above us may be spoilt too soon?

Don't worry lad, armchair supporters rarely face much embarrassment in Burnley, they switch off the box way before the match ends when you're losing anyway.

You should be happy with the early pressie Rovers gave to you. Enjoy your world cup achievement - until Rovers bring you down to earth when we play again...

MUHAHAHA!

Milwall are even higher up than you.. Granted we've TWO games in hand over them though lol.

Heard last night, its looking very likely that Berg's position is key to changes being considered. What that means I can only make assumptions about, but it looks very much like the cancelled game could have been his saviour had we drawn or lost.

Stanley are a different ground and not in a valley with a river running alongside. Those that remember the old days will know how the water always flooded the Darwen end in the Bolton road corner. It's all about the height of the water table and that is not something that can be changed so stop the moaning and think before shouting.

Tbh, and not defending Singh's ineptitude at all, its a nothing story.

They've pretty much after a almost a fortnight come up with a non-story from one of Singh's quotes about certain managers being available that weren't at the time.

The problem these days appears more and more to be overly paid journos writing up any tat to fill their pages on slow news days to justify their existence - much like the article above. Andy admitted as much on Twitter that the called off game left a hole in his column and, hey presto! a boring nothing new article..

Got to see some of the "journalistic expression" for what it is. Shiite to fill up pages.

SSN reporting Givet heading back to France in January. Although he is possibly the best centre back we have ahead of Dann and Hanley hopefully it will free some of the wage bill to bring in another centre half of Bergs choosing, that would be logical but Singh and Venkys don't do logic

Some of the Brighton fans didn't have a wasted journey - quite a lot of them (& some Rovers fans) came to the Stanley game which helped our gate enourmously at a time when we realy needed it so big thanks to those who made the trip - who knows, maybe some of the Rovers fans saw enough to convince them to come back again in a cracking game which was described by the press as 'a great advert for league 2 football'

To put this stuff about the waterlogged pitch to bed, I was initially surprised at the postponed game, my garden floods in heavy rain and it wasnt particularly bad on that day however my son has a Geography degree and tells me as others have on this site that we cannot compare other grounds in the area. It's not to do with us all being in the same area under the same rainfall or about the drainage and preparation of the pitch, it's about the geography immediately around the ground and the water table e.g. whether the ground is on high or low ground, whether it is close to a water source like a river or lodge and how saturated the surrounding ground is. I know Burnley fans have nothing else on their sporting calender except Rovers news and some Rovers fans are so disillusioned that they are looking for explanations about our current situation but this one really was nature.

At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade

We can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time
But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
It's hard but when you're having fun
There's a world outside called Burnley
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is them drinking Netto beer
The six fingered lot who live there
All wear Claret and Blue
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
Well it won't be fun in Burn-l-ey this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is fags
They'll be smashing up their town
Fighting over a pound
Do they know they've got a League 2 ground...

Here's to them
Giro-cheques for everyone
Here's to them
The inter-breeding scum

Following a year of mass government handouts to help the poor people in the dark and gloomy town of Burnleh, it is now christmas and their children will be excited. Little six fingered Danny says to his dads partner (his aunty) "aah'm really excited for tomorrow" his stepmum/aunt says "whaa is that Danny boy" he said "because father christmas is coming", his stepmum/aunty thinks "oh sh*t ahh forgot it was christmas" and phones her brother/partner up from the payphone at the end of the street. The landlord of one of the town center pubs answers his phone and shouts "Jimmy it's for you" Jimmy answers the phone. His sister/partner says "Jimmy what did we get Danny boy for christmas" Jimmy said "oh sh*t ahh forgot, but never mind aa'll just finish this paant then aa'll set off home, on maah way home aa'll pick us some white lightning and super strength lager up then ahh'l nip to me ex's (his other sister) and pick me daughter up from her, that should do him" his sister/partner said "is that all he's getting?" Jimmy replied "thats all I got for christmas when I was his age, me mum and her partner (me uncle) gave me you and our Shelley" his sister replies "oh Jimmy you're so thoughtful, please will you get two bottles of white lighting"!!

Yes it is to free up the wage bill but I doubt better players will be brought in. Robinson and Givet going, if it happens, is weakening the squad, but isn't that what Venkys have done from day one.

SANTA CANCELS CHRISTMAS VISIT TO BLACKBURN

Following an outbreak of Horse molestation, Santa Claus has regretfully had to cancel Christmas in Blackburn.

After a meeting with Rudolph it was decided that Blackburn was not a safe place for large animals with four legs to visit. .

Rudolph commented ` It is bad enough having a red nose , so I aint risking having a red arse `
Following a year of mass government handouts to help the poor people in the dark and gloomy town of Burnleh, it is now christmas and their children will be excited. Little six fingered Danny says to his dads partner (his aunty) "aah'm really excited for tomorrow" his stepmum/aunt says "whaa is that Danny boy" he said "because father christmas is coming", his stepmum/aunty thinks "oh sh*t ahh forgot it was christmas" and phones her brother/partner up from the payphone at the end of the street. The landlord of one of the town center pubs answers his phone and shouts "Jimmy it's for you" Jimmy answers the phone. His sister/partner says "Jimmy what did we get Danny boy for christmas" Jimmy said "oh sh*t ahh forgot, but never mind aa'll just finish this paant then aa'll set off home, on maah way home aa'll pick us some white lightning and super strength lager up then ahh'l nip to me ex's (his other sister) and pick me daughter up from her, that should do him" his sister/partner said "is that all he's getting?" Jimmy replied "thats all I got for christmas when I was his age, me mum and her partner (me uncle) gave me you and our Shelley" his sister replies "oh Jimmy you're so thoughtful, please will you get two bottles of white lighting"!!
That was an utterly woeful attempt at humour, you should have signed it off with daver72BRFC aged 5 and a half.

There are some good Rovers banter boys on here, you sir aren't one of them. Go away and practice harder.

Well done Accy Stanley for getting your game on, a proper family club with loving caring fans, you're a credit to your town.
Are you a Burnley fan or a Rovers fan? Quite frankly I cant tell. You are always posting on rovers news and I dont see you under the Burnley articles. I cant think that you would be a Burnley fan because a Rovers game being called off wouldnt still be of such interest to you 2 days later. Or perhaps you are an Accy Stanley fan? identify yourself
He's not a football fan at all. He doesn't go so he's just an armchair fan in love with Rovers..... Top team in Lancs.
Ha ha, alright Hardwoodglue how's tricks ?
The world is looking a lot better from my arm chair thanks now you lot are literally getting washed away down the league table.

Enjoy going through the bins for your dinner tomorrow. I hope Santa brings you that new left shoe you've been after for a while and that Casio you've been meaning to replace since you lost the other one up Dobbin's bovril pipe !!!!

Happy Christmas :)

Its Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of Blackburn
We can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time
But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
It's hard but when you're having fun
There's a world outside called Burnley
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is them drinking Netto beer
The six fingered lot who live there
All wear Claret and Blue
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
Well it won't be fun in Burn-l-ey this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is fags
They'll be smashing up their town
Fighting over a pound
Do they know they've got a League 2 ground...
(instrumental)
Here's to them
Giro-cheques for everyone
Here's to them
The inter-breeding scum
Do they know they've got a League 2 ground...
(Instrumental)
Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time...
