Full Time: Middlesbrough 1 Blackburn 0

BLACKBURN Rovers slipped to another defeat this afternoon as they went down 1-0 at Middlesbrough.

Lukas Jutkiewicz scored the only goal of the game on 67 minutes and the loss at the Riverside Stadium left Rovers with just one point from the last 18 available.

Henning Berg's men were on top for periods of the first half but were unable to get in front and after the break they were very much second best to Tony Mowbray's men.

And listening to that clown Shebby on Radio Lancs has just confirmed it!!
Needs a massive clear out NOW! Both the managerial/coaching team and our overpaid has-beens.
(But never mind, at least we will ALWAYS have more class than the low-lifes up the road).

These results are not acceptable.
What are the Venkys going to do about this, we are now in a relegation battle.
-
After all of the background noise about the backroom staff being replaced they still remain. Although Berg has tinkered with the playing staff, it is clearly not enough. The team is an absolute shambles and low in confidence. Change needs to happen and needs to happen soon, to stop us falling through to League One.
-
I sincerely hope we do not here a Pollyana statement from Berg about how the performances have improved. Performances and talk does not get you points on the board, and we are simply not picking up enough points and unable to get any kind of coherent level of performance together over 90 minutes.
The manager, coaching staff and players all need to answer some serious questions.

Serious question- How many more losses and lower do we have to fall before the Venkys sell up? They have already completely destroyed our club. Our status as a premier league team has been ripped away, we are now struggling to even maintain championship status. Can the Venkys please pull themselves together and sell the club for the good of everyone associated with the club?

The thing that surprises me most, apart from how so many Burnley supporters manage to get from from a home game so quickly to get posting on here, is the fact that so few people are talking relegation. Because as far as i'm concerned, avoiding it is the only thing we've got to play for this season and the way things are going with so many prima-donas and overpaid lightweights at the club, (players and staff) i'm not confident we will. Hands up, who didn't want a proper manager like Mick McCarthy?

Berg has to go I'm afraid along with the joke that is venkys (1 point out of 18 - 1 win in 10 matches - sackable offence without doubt!!! Keano did better- although i hate to admit it). Berg quoted as saying any man with any sort of credibility wouldn't take the rovers job. Well Berg you took the job, and a lot of good you have achieved thus far - do the credible thing and stand down as manager - clearly beyond your capabilities - hence you were never first choice candidate for the vacancy - January is not gonna make a blind bit of difference with Berg in charge.

To be honest, i was optimistic when Berg was first appointed - not excited though - and im sure the players felt the same - hardly an appointment that would really excite and lift the club, fans or players.

Will always be respected as a former player - management however is not for you.

Venkys have failed to win over the fans AGAIN

PS I want a refund on my season ticket

The Burnley posters don't go and actually watch their own team.They're more interested in coming on this page. They don't comment on their own page cause they never saw the match.

Saturday's match at home to Barnsley has got to be last chance saloon for Berg I'm afraid. I liked Henning as a player but he's just not making it as a manager I'm sad to say.

The manager, coaching staff and players all need to answer some serious questions.
Has it occurred to you that you are carp !
Spot on, we are crap. Frustrating that black had managed to make us more solid and grind out some results. The Berg experiment has gone horribly wrong but Shebby hasn't got the nuts to admit that he messed up with this appointment. Unless changes are made quickly we'll go down again, weak in centre midfield, weak at centre back and can't provide service to Rhodes.

That's the main reason we are in the mess we are in. Berg is a good man but not up to the job but the fault still lies with Kean and Venkys for allowing him to destroy the playing staff.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!

Venkys must have alarm bells ringing at the rate their asset is losing value week after week. Through selling our quality players the club posted a profit (were the accounts ever signed off?) But by cashing in on them they have reduced the value of the club and the current squad shows no Duff's, Bentleys or Phil Jones calibre players coming through to sell on for on excess of £15m. Your experiment in generating profit by using Rovers as s development club for future high calibre and high transfer fees has gone wrong because you killed the goose that laid the golden egg - the infrastructure of a well run club. Well reap as you sow, you have lost your money do cut your losses and run, let's hope everyone who made s pledge to the supporters Trust is ready to stump up the cash because very soon it will be called upon.

ChanYinCo says...

I recall Shebby saying something to the effect of 'anything less than an immediate promotion back to the EPL would be disastrous'.

If Shebby is to stay true to his word, which is of course expected of people who claim to 'love the club that is Blackburn Rovers', then something drastic has to be done immediately.

Blackburn certainly have the players (on paper at least) who can guide the club back to the EPL, but for some reason, the way they are playing, and the results they are getting, is proving otherwise. Clearly Berg is not an astute tactician, nor does he seem capable of rallying his troops.

Perhaps, a more experienced manager should be considered before Rovers have to spend another season in the Championship, or even worse, drop to League One?

Stone Island: says...

A second successive relegation is now a distinct possibility, thanks to that IDIOT Shabby Minge's ludicrous decision to give Berg the job. He was not, is not, and never will be the man to take this club forward. He was sacked from his last job after losing SEVEN of his first eight games. His record at Rovers is ONE win in TEN! or SIX points from a possible THIRTY! Not good enough i'm afraid.

The trouble is, it's pointless sacking him because we will NEVER get a proper manager whilst that IDIOT Singh has anything to do with this once proud club. We are a complete shambles from top to bottom, and fast becoming the laughing stock of football. Under the current regime, the future of BRFC is extremely bleak. Only when the VERMIN in India have left, can we start to rebuild. God knows where we will be then. League two will be my bet.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Sorry I forgot the 3 drawn games so it should read 6 points from a possible 30.

Still not good enough though.

I dread to think what the attendance will be for the FA Cup game against Bristol City in January.

Any Manager coming into Rovers was going to have big problems due to what happened over the previous 18 months,whoever appointed Henning should have removed all the backroom staff the day before he took over,he should have insisted this happened,it does appear this fellow 'Shabby'as not got a clue,but appears to still be running the club,no Manager can work under these conditions,if Henning had a good name in football this 'Shabby' will soon lose it for him along with the good name of the club,January is make or break for the club when the transfer window opens,the owners got away with it in August,I do not think they will get away with it again in January with the supporters.

@ Blackburn Fans : Why get wound up over the unintelligent gibberish that the Burnley Fans post here? They have nothing important to post, and can only contribute weak insults and mindless banter.

You can bet your bottom dollar that before their next game against the Rovers, they're going to be logged in here already, just waiting with their nonsensical drivel, in the hope that Rovers lose.

Frankly, I'm not bothered with what these clowns have to say.

@ Burnley Fans : You are only four points ahead of Blackburn Rovers. Congratulations, you are now a mid-table team. The way you are gloating however, it's as if by virtue of being placed higher than Blackburn, you've won automatic entry to the EPL / Champions League or something. Please. Grow up.

@ Mike Ferguson - I'm not sure the upcoming transfer window can fix the problems at Rovers. It's not some magical 'fix-it-all' period, although, I can understand that cautiously optimistic Blackburn Fans will hope that the team can / will bring in more 'quality' players.

I think Blackburn already have the players in place to challenge for promotion back to the EPL, however, Berg might not be best suited to lead them. He looks lost tactically, and, other than over relying on Rhodes, does not seem to have other plans.

Well I don't think anyone should of expected a win at all so I don't understand why there's a sudden mass disappointment and outrage. We're diabolical so why would you suddenly make beating 4th place away from home a must?

To be honest Black was doing very well. Yes, we scored 1 goal in home games, but he changed the formation and the players had to adapt. Also, I think you'd take 1-0 wins at home than 2-0 defeats etc.

Of course though, I forgot winning 1-0 wasn't good enough for the fans because as soon as we get what we need, you all look for the next best thing - the next available person who might be able to win everything 2-0.

This isn't Fifa, this isn't Mark Hughes'/Allardyces' reign, and this isn't 1995 either. I mean the unrealism is just ridiculous.

We can't afford managers like Mark Hughes, and we're a step down for that calibre anyways (despite his recent managerial performances being below par).

"Let's Get John Williams back". Never ever going to happen. It's like working all the way to the top of a supermarket then wanting to go and stack shelves.

In my opinion, Venky's will be looking to try and sell the club off behind scenes when promotion is a no go. The squad will be devalued, they can't make the sort of money out of the club that they have so far and because they won't be making money, they'll become even more disinterested than they already are.

Manager wise, if Berg goes, he won't be sacked, he'll resign because if you haven't noticed, he hasn't exactly got what he expected and he isn't happy.

I would say let's get a young manager in and give him some time but Blackburn isn't a club for young managers at the moment. We don't really have time to give out to managers and even if we did, the fans would get too impatient and wouldn't see what we might be able to achieve in the future.

We need results at the moment. I wanted Tugay to be honest. I think he'd of been fantastic.

Kean got lucky for the first few games because opposition teams were showing us far too much respect due to the high profile names in our squad. We got found out and that would of happened with or without kean. As I recall it, when we were top of the league the performances were still woeful, the players couldn't run for 90mins due to their lack of fitness and kean was a lying, drunken, tactically inept, idiot whose post match comments were as if he was watching a completely different sport entirely. We got found out and it's that simple.

Well you cant accuse Venky's of a lack of investment then! They have stumped up good money for mediocre players and before you point the finger at Steve Kean, please remember that he openly stated that he had not even seen most of the players that he was expected to work with. Maybe Venky's are NOT the problem and Shabby the Snake is shafting them as badly as he is shafting us!
its all a mess and everyone is blamin everyone,, but lads look what Harrys done with the players at QPR ,, no new signings but got them playing and fit.....
im afraid appointing Berg was another colosal mistake like Kean and Berg is inexperienced --so the two mean no wins and poor team spirit.. Appointed Shebby is a bigger mistake when will they learn

There's just been an almighty heated debate /argument in our family about who or what is to blame for rovers situation. Is it worth it I ask myself? I'm getting to the stage when I think not after 40 years. Just not being good enough or not having the funds is different to being destroyed by incompetence and negligence

Must say I do have a laugh when I read Rovers fans demanding a new manager, when all they wanted for months was Kean out. Be careful what you wish for! And as for Souness or George Graham, as one poster suggested - what decade do you think this is? The 1990s?

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

I'm sure when the chicken farmers took over, you all dreamed of being the next Manchester City. Congratulations, you are! City circa 1977-2007; namely the club every other club laughs at. Now go inflate a banana...

I think Blackburn already have the players in place to challenge for promotion back to the EPL, however, Berg might not be best suited to lead them. He looks lost tactically, and, other than over relying on Rhodes, does not seem to have other plans.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Sorry I forgot the 3 drawn games so it should read 6 points from a possible 30.

Still not good enough though.

I dread to think what the attendance will be for the FA Cup game against Bristol City in January.
That's the entire reason Rovers are in a state like this.
Mark Hughes?
Utterly deluded.
It's about time we start to get real.
God help us.

I think you are ALMOST right on both counts. With the exception of defence, where only OLssen is perhaps good enough, we perhaps have TOO MANY quality players to pick from but Berg has neither the tactical acumen or the inspirational leadership skills to select and motivate the right formula.

Admittedly I have vented a lot of anger at venkys since the takeover but that was when our best players were being sold, frozen out or being treated like dirt,. It all points to them being ill advised from every angle. If Steve kean was having players forced on him he should of resigned like any other self respecting manager would have done. He should of resigned before we got relegated, he should of resigned when we did get relegated. He should of been sacked before we stayed up on the last day at molineux. Either way it seems obvious to me that neither kean nor berg were ever the right man for the job.. I don't think anybody on the outside really knows what is happening, all I know is I am very scared for the future of our club, there are no positives in my opinion.

"Either way it seems obvious to me that neither kean nor berg were ever the right man for the job.. I don't think anybody on the outside really knows what is happening, all I know is I am very scared for the future of our club, there are no positives in my opinion.”

I agree entirely. A very grim scenario is unfolding right in front of us.

This is beginning to remind me of the late sixtys when we were relegated to the old div. 3. We got a new no nonsense manager in Ken Furphy . He still took a year to turn things round. We were doing badly until he signed John Macnamee. He was about the toughest defender i ever saw, knew how to sort out a .defence I wonder if he has a grandson. It is easy to mess up a team but extremely hard to build anew one.

The thing that surprises me most, apart from how so many Burnley supporters manage to get from from a home game so quickly to get posting on here, is the fact that so few people are talking relegation. Because as far as i'm concerned, avoiding it is the only thing we've got to play for this season and the way things are going with so many prima-donas and overpaid lightweights at the club, (players and staff) i'm not confident we will. Hands up, who didn't want a proper manager like Mick McCarthy?
Absolutely spot on! Another 3 points today for McCarthy from,on paper,a more limited squad. I've said it before, Shebby learnt absolutely nothing from Kean's failure and appointed another rookie with no track record of being a manager,no back room team and it seems no blooming idea!!! And to top it all,Shabby tips up on Radio Lancs giving his expert views,"you know".

They'll fork out NOTHING. Any players that come in, will have to be funded by selling players. Which has been the case from DAY ONE.

Singh learn? This man has a bigger ego than Kean hence that is why Kean walked. But they do say he who laughs last laughs longest and Kean must be splitting his sides at this mess that is the global advisor. Now I am not one of the bring back Kean/we were wrong to get rid of Kean brigade but Singh is doing a hundred times more damage to our club than Kean ever did yet he doesn't get the abuse directed at Kean. Beggars belief.

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

I'm sure when the chicken farmers took over, you all dreamed of being the next Manchester City. Congratulations, you are! City circa 1977-2007; namely the club every other club laughs at. Now go inflate a banana...
Really? Suffering? I didn't actually believe there were people as depraved as you merely in the name of football rivalry. My cousin was one of the old hard Burnley fans. Real nutter in his time but he doesn't even talk in the way you do. Grown up mind you. How old are you? You've actually made me feel better. I do feel a class above you if not in football, as a human being
There are actually only three comments on their own page commenting about Burnley's win today. That just about says it all that they are more obsessed about Rovers than their own club. Pathetic.

A business plan would have been submitted as part of the fit and proper owners process. The business plan was probably as much pie in the sky as the rest of the Venkys submission that was swallowed hook, line and sinker. S fit and proper owner would not have reduced one of the best run clubs in British football to the shambles it is today yet Venkys passed the test and were permitted to buy then through incompetence ruin the club. If you bought a house and employed a surveyor to check its structure then the thing fell down in two years you would have grounds to sue. The fit and proper owners test was put in place to safeguard clubs and supporters. We have been let down badly, very badly.

S fit and proper owner would not have reduced one of the best run clubs in British football to the shambles it is today yet Venkys passed the test and were permitted to buy then through incompetence ruin the club. If you bought a house and employed a surveyor to check its structure then the thing fell down in two years you would have grounds to sue. The fit and proper owners test was put in place to safeguard clubs and supporters. We have been let down badly, very badly. Captain Dreckley

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

I'm sure when the chicken farmers took over, you all dreamed of being the next Manchester City. Congratulations, you are! City circa 1977-2007; namely the club every other club laughs at. Now go inflate a banana...
Really? Suffering? I didn't actually believe there were people as depraved as you merely in the name of football rivalry. My cousin was one of the old hard Burnley fans. Real nutter in his time but he doesn't even talk in the way you do. Grown up mind you. How old are you? You've actually made me feel better. I do feel a class above you if not in football, as a human being
There are actually only three comments on their own page commenting about Burnley's win today. That just about says it all that they are more obsessed about Rovers than their own club. Pathetic.
Two bites! Great! Truth hurts doesn't it?
The only truth here that stands out is the stench of gagging manure that is a bonleh fan. Again, none of you low-lifes actually went to the game judging how quick you turned up here to comnent, ergo your opinions mean jack shiite.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Sorry I forgot the 3 drawn games so it should read 6 points from a possible 30.

Still not good enough though.

I dread to think what the attendance will be for the FA Cup game against Bristol City in January.
That's the entire reason Rovers are in a state like this.
Mark Hughes?
Utterly deluded.
It's about time we start to get real.
God help us.
If you read the original post properly you will see that I did query whether Mark Hughes would come back as manager.

Either way something needs to be done as a matter of urgency as Berg is not the answer.

Have you any positive suggestions to contribute?

I for one didn't expect anything but a loss today, not sure why any Rovers fans thought we would get anything at Boro? We kept the score down to a reasonable 0-1 against a high scoring home team and had almost as much possession (48-52) and almost the same shots at goal as Boro. The thing we don't have at the minute is any luck.

What I would give for a deflected shot to go in or for a penalty for any reason (that we score from) or an own goal in our favour. But the only luck we have currently is NO luck. It has to change though, the law of averages and football say that over a season this is the one thing that is shared out evenly. If that is the case then we must be saving an awful lot up for the second half of the season then!

Berg seems to be a decent and honest man doing his best (his way) to sort out who wants to play for the team and who doesn't want to play and who is prepared to put the effort in to help the team be successful - some of the performances at times in some of the recent games have been improved - but Henning needs the backing of the club during the Jan window to give himself and the Rovers the best chance of success.

A couple of decent players in the right positions who can strengthen the team and the performances and results will improve and the confidence will return (along with lady luck) and then we can consolidate the season and prepare to push on for next season. New Year - New Hopes.

J.C - Rishton says...

Just got back from the game and, frankly, I can't see where another win is gonna come from.

Saturdays game is now a "6 pointer relegation dog-fight".

I can understand fans calling for HB to be sacked (they may well be right) but firstly, before another ball is kicked, SS MUST leave the club and either Tom Finn or Paul Hunt re-instated (JW would never come back and work for Venkys, nor would they ever ask him).

SS is a complete and utter CRETIN and for all these people who still (unbelievably) say that Venkys are just "naive" - GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND !!!! - they are our luekemia - invecting every part of our club with their utter poison.

SS has no credentials for being a CEO of a £50m football club - christ, the man has never lived in Europe before - he knows NOTHING about English football and even less about running an English football club.

So I'll go back to my first point - why sack HB until you have got rid of SS - no decent, experienced manager would come and work for SS - Berg said as much himself a few months ago.

Get a proper CEO in (pref JF or PH) and then let them run the club - and sack HB if they chose to - then let them appoint the BEST manager they can find - not let the final decision rest with that stupid cow sat in her ivory tower in Cowpat, India, who by her own admission, knows NOTHING about football but never listens to anyone who tries to give her PROPER advice (eg Paul Hunt).

Unless Venkys do this, and do this QUICKLY then relegation (again) could well be the least of our problems.

This "Venky cancer" will eventually completely destroy the club (we are currently losing over £2m per month) unless change is made VERY VERY SOON.

The thing we don't have at the minute is any luck.

What I would give for a deflected shot to go in or for a penalty for any reason (that we score from) or an own goal in our favour. But the only luck we have currently is NO luck. It has to change though, the law of averages and football say that over a season this is the one thing that is shared out evenly. If that is the case then we must be saving an awful lot up for the second half of the season then!

Berg seems to be a decent and honest man doing his best (his way) to sort out who wants to play for the team and who doesn't want to play and who is prepared to put the effort in to help the team be successful - some of the performances at times in some of the recent games have been improved - but Henning needs the backing of the club during the Jan window to give himself and the Rovers the best chance of success.

A couple of decent players in the right positions who can strengthen the team and the performances and results will improve and the confidence will return (along with lady luck) and then we can consolidate the season and prepare to push on for next season. New Year - New Hopes.
I am sorry but your post is utter PAP - todays result had nothing to do with LUCK - at the end of the game Boro were worthy winners.

Sure we did "okay" at times but they bossed virtually all the 2nd half and may have won by more but from good saves from Kean and a few last ditch tackles etc.

The "core" problem with this Rovers squad is that the senior players are (when the chips are down) "Uncaring, gutless, mercenary losers"

- eg - today the game was even until Boro scored but once that happened there was only one winner - why, because all our senior players just let there heads drop and didnt respond positively - and the junior members of the squad take their lead from the Murphys and Danns etc.

We really need 11 Robbie Savages out on that field but unfortnately as soon as we conceed a goal they play more like 11 Lilly Savages !

We have lost 5 of the last 6 games - that has NOTHING to do with luck - we deserved to lose to Blackpool, Cardiff, Bolton and Millwall as well !

Sad to see what is happening to BRFC and what appears to be the destination of the club. For years so called "FANS" have mocked BRFC and referred to one of the hardest leagues in English football as the "Chumpionship" well it seems that your chumps of owners and the chumps who cried "Sam out" are about to reap what they have sown.

Second question: Do you still think the NPower Championship is still worthy of your name for it?

As I said in the previous article this morning FR, another time, another situation, we could have given Berg time to find his feet. But as almost everyone on here have stated unanimously on here and everywhere else, we needed a manager to hit the ground running and work with what we have - which only an experienced manager could have done.

Alas, we don't have these luxuries and bringing in a part experienced manager has now led to us tumbling even further down the table. Unlike some doom monging honarary dingles, who don't even attend matches to be able to justify their experiences of individual performances, I do not believe we are relegation fodder or will be. What I do believe is unless we want to be doomed to a life in this league, Berg has to go. Thankfully it appears that Venky's are now heading in the same direction.

Put simply, Berg doesn't have the ability to get the best out of these players. He has gone on record to say his management decisions are his own and certainly Singh wasn't guiding him today seeing that he was in the commentary role. If these are his decisions then they are very poor indeed. No Vukevic again, no change in game play until we go a goal down - again!

He might be the nicest most honest decent man alive, he is not the man to get us out of this predicament and therefore he must go. The fact is that he should have never been employed in the first place but he is not going to step down yet under his own volition.

Venky's must act swift, and bring in someone with the ability to get this rabble playing for the shirt to stand any chance of going up the table again.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Sorry I forgot the 3 drawn games so it should read 6 points from a possible 30.

Still not good enough though.

I dread to think what the attendance will be for the FA Cup game against Bristol City in January.
At £15 a ticket to sit in the Blackburn end I shouldnt think there will be many there, I for one wont be paying that much for a Rovers first round FA cup tie.
They will put out a ten bob team as they will say they need to concentrate on the league (heard it all before) fans wont have much money after the Christmas holidays so it would make sense to charge £5 for an adult and a
quid for a kid, it would be better to try and fill the ground but oh no the Venkys will try and get every last penny out of us fans.
Ive paid for my season ticket and theyre not getting another penny off me!!!!

Well I don't think anyone should of expected a win at all so I don't understand why there's a sudden mass disappointment and outrage. We're diabolical so why would you suddenly make beating 4th place away from home a must?

To be honest Black was doing very well. Yes, we scored 1 goal in home games, but he changed the formation and the players had to adapt. Also, I think you'd take 1-0 wins at home than 2-0 defeats etc.

Of course though, I forgot winning 1-0 wasn't good enough for the fans because as soon as we get what we need, you all look for the next best thing - the next available person who might be able to win everything 2-0.

This isn't Fifa, this isn't Mark Hughes'/Allardyces' reign, and this isn't 1995 either. I mean the unrealism is just ridiculous.

We can't afford managers like Mark Hughes, and we're a step down for that calibre anyways (despite his recent managerial performances being below par).

"Let's Get John Williams back". Never ever going to happen. It's like working all the way to the top of a supermarket then wanting to go and stack shelves.

In my opinion, Venky's will be looking to try and sell the club off behind scenes when promotion is a no go. The squad will be devalued, they can't make the sort of money out of the club that they have so far and because they won't be making money, they'll become even more disinterested than they already are.

Manager wise, if Berg goes, he won't be sacked, he'll resign because if you haven't noticed, he hasn't exactly got what he expected and he isn't happy.

I would say let's get a young manager in and give him some time but Blackburn isn't a club for young managers at the moment. We don't really have time to give out to managers and even if we did, the fans would get too impatient and wouldn't see what we might be able to achieve in the future.

We need results at the moment. I wanted Tugay to be honest. I think he'd of been fantastic.
Finally a bit of common sense. There does seem to be a lot of Rovers fans who need to take a "reality pill". However incompetent the owners are and this is fairly apparent with their staff appointments , surely they've got to be worried. Their investment is now worth half of what it was when they bought a PL club. We were hard enough to sell then, who the hells going to go anywhere near us now unless its at bargain basement money.

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

I'm sure when the chicken farmers took over, you all dreamed of being the next Manchester City. Congratulations, you are! City circa 1977-2007; namely the club every other club laughs at. Now go inflate a banana...
Really? Suffering? I didn't actually believe there were people as depraved as you merely in the name of football rivalry. My cousin was one of the old hard Burnley fans. Real nutter in his time but he doesn't even talk in the way you do. Grown up mind you. How old are you? You've actually made me feel better. I do feel a class above you if not in football, as a human being
Thank you for biting and showing how much it hurts. Job done!
Fella, the only thing that hurts is the notion that their are people like you that talk about rival football fans in the same way my American friends talked about the detainees on guantanamo bay. I'd like to say that your constant presence on here shows how much you hurt but you show worse than that. You are a scary individual
So you're comparing supporting a failing football team to the suffering of Guantanamo Bay. And you call me scary.
As I read it, he was saying that you talk about your satisfaction at the suffering of your rival football fans in the same way americans who had been attacked by terrorists talked about their suspects. Think you need to engage your brain before you come on here spouting c##p. Seems to me its you has bitten and jobs done

Thinking back, and looking at the results in the first few games after Steve Kean left, I think that Eric Black did a pretty decent job - at least we won some matches. Perhaps the simple answer is to pass the reigns back to Eric Black. Henning Berg was a great defender but I am not sure management is his forte. I trust that whoever is running the ticket sales at the club will not be surprised when folk such as me do not re-new their seaon tickets next season

No more evidence required....
Henning Berg is not a fooball manager.....fact!
The Venkys are accountable

All this rubbish about the coaching and the players....the players were doing ok before Berg came and so were the coaching staff. Eric Black got the defence up to scratch.
As for the players, most neutrals seem to think we have got one of the best teams.

Not a clearout of coaches or players. A clearout of manager and owners!

Berg needs to be given more time. It's Shebby who needs to fall on his sword but we all know that won't happen and Venkys won't lose face by sacking him. So unfortunately Berg will go only for the pantomime to continue. The truth is that there is no manager out there worth his salt that will take on this job. Berg was right all along.a pity he can't take his own advice

I wasn't one who wanted rid of Allardyce. dont generalise. They were a minority. I wasnt one who booed at Kean, never have abused any manager or player at Rovers. That said, I was relieved to see the back of him. I dont think other fans/outsiders know enough about what that bloke was up to. I guess theres a lot we all dont know but rovers fans know more than others just because we follow our club in more detail than you would. He was a dangerous man within our club. I would never want Kean back, ever and though Berg isnt the man and I never thought he would be, I would rather have a decent man failing than a dishonest, manipulative, backstabbing drunk as our manager. Kean would never have won promotion. Dont be fooled. Our first few performances were awful and we were lucky just because we were knew to the league. It would have been the same if not worse outcome with Kean. As for the championship, I havent got an opinion. Its a league of football, Iv watched Rovers in all leagues. I think you are making a mountain out of a molehill really in picking up on a meaningless phrase somebody used when there is a hell of a lot more you could talk about in football - like your own team on the Burnley news column for instance!

Give Mark Hughes a short term deal with a stated January transfer budget, agreement that Shabby, Shaw and Agnew have no say in any football matters and a bonus system based on avoiding relegation, play-offs or automatic promotion.

iIn normal circumstances he wouldn't come in a million years but he also has a reputation to rebuild after the QPR shambles. Unfortunately I think its clear Berg hasn't got it based on his whole managerial record -looks like he' s carried on where he left off in Norway.

The last 30 odd years really have been much harder than I imagined for you bitter and twisted pig farmers.

I know the obsession and envy is rife throughout medieval Bonleh but the cancer that has struck Rovers appears to be seen as some sort of karma or payback to all you desperate oddballs down Bonleh way.

I didn't realise just how much Rovers have affected your lives these last 3 decades. It obviously really hurt being so unimportant and 2nd best for so so long - hence how easily pleased you are.

Aren't you even slightly embarrassed you got so excited about a 4 point gap you posted 6 paragraphs regarding another football clubs plight? Don't you think it's an admission that Bonleh FC are the very weak link in one of the most one sided derby rivalries in world football?

Being below such an unimportant and dull club like Bonleh is the most significant piece of evidence of how far our club has fallen these last 2 years. It tells the full story.

Thanks for the laughs though - now go inflate your blow up doll and take him to McDonalds for a romantic meal before you re-enact a love scene from Brokeback Mountain in the back of the Sierra.......

I for one didn't expect anything but a loss today, not sure why any Rovers fans thought we would get anything at Boro? We kept the score down to a reasonable 0-1 against a high scoring home team and had almost as much possession (48-52) and almost the same shots at goal as Boro. The thing we don't have at the minute is any luck.

What I would give for a deflected shot to go in or for a penalty for any reason (that we score from) or an own goal in our favour. But the only luck we have currently is NO luck. It has to change though, the law of averages and football say that over a season this is the one thing that is shared out evenly. If that is the case then we must be saving an awful lot up for the second half of the season then!

Berg seems to be a decent and honest man doing his best (his way) to sort out who wants to play for the team and who doesn't want to play and who is prepared to put the effort in to help the team be successful - some of the performances at times in some of the recent games have been improved - but Henning needs the backing of the club during the Jan window to give himself and the Rovers the best chance of success.

A couple of decent players in the right positions who can strengthen the team and the performances and results will improve and the confidence will return (along with lady luck) and then we can consolidate the season and prepare to push on for next season. New Year - New Hopes.
As I said in the previous article this morning FR, another time, another situation, we could have given Berg time to find his feet. But as almost everyone on here have stated unanimously on here and everywhere else, we needed a manager to hit the ground running and work with what we have - which only an experienced manager could have done.

Alas, we don't have these luxuries and bringing in a part experienced manager has now led to us tumbling even further down the table. Unlike some doom monging honarary dingles, who don't even attend matches to be able to justify their experiences of individual performances, I do not believe we are relegation fodder or will be. What I do believe is unless we want to be doomed to a life in this league, Berg has to go. Thankfully it appears that Venky's are now heading in the same direction.

Put simply, Berg doesn't have the ability to get the best out of these players. He has gone on record to say his management decisions are his own and certainly Singh wasn't guiding him today seeing that he was in the commentary role. If these are his decisions then they are very poor indeed. No Vukevic again, no change in game play until we go a goal down - again!

He might be the nicest most honest decent man alive, he is not the man to get us out of this predicament and therefore he must go. The fact is that he should have never been employed in the first place but he is not going to step down yet under his own volition.

Venky's must act swift, and bring in someone with the ability to get this rabble playing for the shirt to stand any chance of going up the table again.
i understand your points BB but honestly do not think that sacking HB would do any good at all. No experienced or successful manager would come to Ewood if we had sacked two mangers in less than three months. If a new manager didn't get immediate success would he get sacked also? Who would come under those crazy conditions? Maybe someone from the lower or non league club if we were lucky. Possibly Joudan Ali or someone of that nature. What once was a good job at a decent club is now a poisoned chalice. Berg has to be given time, with proper support from the club then I still believe he can succeed.

We kept the score down to a reasonable 0-1 against a high scoring home team and had almost as much possession (48-52) and almost the same shots at goal as Boro. The thing we don't have at the minute is any luck. What I would give for a deflected shot to go in or for a penalty for any reason (that we score from) or an own goal in our favour. But the only luck we have currently is NO luck. It has to change though, the law of averages and football say that over a season this is the one thing that is shared out evenly. If that is the case then we must be saving an awful lot up for the second half of the season then! Berg seems to be a decent and honest man doing his best (his way) to sort out who wants to play for the team and who doesn't want to play and who is prepared to put the effort in to help the team be successful - some of the performances at times in some of the recent games have been improved - but Henning needs the backing of the club during the Jan window to give himself and the Rovers the best chance of success. A couple of decent players in the right positions who can strengthen the team and the performances and results will improve and the confidence will return (along with lady luck) and then we can consolidate the season and prepare to push on for next season. New Year - New Hopes.[/p][/quote]As I said in the previous article this morning FR, another time, another situation, we could have given Berg time to find his feet. But as almost everyone on here have stated unanimously on here and everywhere else, we needed a manager to hit the ground running and work with what we have - which only an experienced manager could have done. Alas, we don't have these luxuries and bringing in a part experienced manager has now led to us tumbling even further down the table. Unlike some doom monging honarary dingles, who don't even attend matches to be able to justify their experiences of individual performances, I do not believe we are relegation fodder or will be. What I do believe is unless we want to be doomed to a life in this league, Berg has to go. Thankfully it appears that Venky's are now heading in the same direction. Put simply, Berg doesn't have the ability to get the best out of these players. He has gone on record to say his management decisions are his own and certainly Singh wasn't guiding him today seeing that he was in the commentary role. If these are his decisions then they are very poor indeed. No Vukevic again, no change in game play until we go a goal down - again! He might be the nicest most honest decent man alive, he is not the man to get us out of this predicament and therefore he must go. The fact is that he should have never been employed in the first place but he is not going to step down yet under his own volition. Venky's must act swift, and bring in someone with the ability to get this rabble playing for the shirt to stand any chance of going up the table again.[/p][/quote]i understand your points BB but honestly do not think that sacking HB would do any good at all. No experienced or successful manager would come to Ewood if we had sacked two mangers in less than three months. If a new manager didn't get immediate success would he get sacked also? Who would come under those crazy conditions? Maybe someone from the lower or non league club if we were lucky. Possibly Joudan Ali or someone of that nature. What once was a good job at a decent club is now a poisoned chalice. Berg has to be given time, with proper support from the club then I still believe he can succeed. He has to succeed - there is no other option. French Rover

Venky's are asset strippers and nothing more. They sold the players who were of value to us when we were in the Premier League. They have sacked the people who were keeping the club afloat in the backroom and have removed some key members of coaching staff.

Once the club is ridden of all it's values they will go and whoever takes the club from their dirty hands will have one heck of a mess to make up. We will end up in a similar mess the Dingles were left with in the late 80s.

You can call me a doom monger or whatever you feel. What you can't deny is that this freefall we have experienced since Venkys took over isn't finished. I'm not sure we will get relegated, we're better than that. What matters is January. If Venkys go on another asset strip then we will be in League 1 next season. If they invest we may well be looking at a play off place.

The thing that surprises me most, apart from how so many Burnley supporters manage to get from from a home game so quickly to get posting on here, is the fact that so few people are talking relegation. Because as far as i'm concerned, avoiding it is the only thing we've got to play for this season and the way things are going with so many prima-donas and overpaid lightweights at the club, (players and staff) i'm not confident we will. Hands up, who didn't want a proper manager like Mick McCarthy?
The Burnley posters don't go and actually watch their own team.They're more interested in coming on this page. They don't comment on their own page cause they never saw the match.

Saturday's match at home to Barnsley has got to be last chance saloon for Berg I'm afraid. I liked Henning as a player but he's just not making it as a manager I'm sad to say.
Using your logic "They don't comment on their own page cause they never saw the match " implies that Burnley fans commenting on the Rovers match must have seen it -sorry but I don't think so!!!

The fact that all you turd stained couch potatoes spend all your time on here is proof enough to Rovers fans that even hitting rock bottom, we would still be be better than you. Classless? You're having a laugh aren't ya turd boy?

Being above or below Bonleh makes absolutely no difference to me when our team is playing shiite. Its seems to matter to you a lot more with your cup final victories.

Enjoy it for what its worth. I just love watching you turdies clinging on hoping to get noticed.

I wasn't one who wanted rid of Allardyce. dont generalise. They were a minority. I wasnt one who booed at Kean, never have abused any manager or player at Rovers.

It would have been the same if not worse outcome with Kean. As for the championship, I havent got an opinion. Its a league of football, Iv watched Rovers in all leagues. I think you are making a mountain out of a molehill really in picking up on a meaningless phrase somebody used when there is a hell of a lot more you could talk about in football - like your own team on the Burnley news column for instance!
Vintageclaret didn't generalise try reading his first sentence again. When I said you didn't have any friends I was only joking but it is actually true isn't it?
I don't recall a single "Sam out chant" nor do I recall anybody "cheering" when venkys took over. There was a feeli g of anticipation until they opened their mouths about champions league football but that's about it. And no the chumpionship is not worthy of us, we have a divine right to be in the premier league.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Since Hughes left rovers, all he has done is spend lots of money on players that have failed. What is good about a manager who has been sacked from his last three clubs in the last four seasons. His record speaks for itself. Forget him.

Hughes is a low budget manager, that's why he did so well for us. Hes brilliant at getting the best out of average players and finding underperforming players and turning them into good players. Bentley, santa cruz, samba, pedersen, andy todd the list goes on. Give him millions to spend and he's useless. Venkys would love him signing

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

I'm sure when the chicken farmers took over, you all dreamed of being the next Manchester City. Congratulations, you are! City circa 1977-2007; namely the club every other club laughs at. Now go inflate a banana...

Real nutter in his time but he doesn't even talk in the way you do. Grown up mind you. How old are you? You've actually made me feel better. I do feel a class above you if not in football, as a human being
Thank you for biting and showing how much it hurts. Job done!
Fella, the only thing that hurts is the notion that their are people like you that talk about rival football fans in the same way my American friends talked about the detainees on guantanamo bay. I'd like to say that your constant presence on here shows how much you hurt but you show worse than that. You are a scary individual
So you're comparing supporting a failing football team to the suffering of Guantanamo Bay. And you call me scary.
As I read it, he was saying that you talk about your satisfaction at the suffering of your rival football fans in the same way americans who had been attacked by terrorists talked about their suspects. Think you need to engage your brain before you come on here spouting c##p. Seems to me its you has bitten and jobs done

Forget the idea you will get a quality manager to replace Berg or the next half-wit who follows him. With the Venky's in charge no good manager is going to risk their reputation associating themselves with the biggest joke club in English football.

And to think there were numpties on here bragging about Beckham and Ronaldinho coming to Ewood Park. Nope, your club is going in one direction only - downwards; and despite protestations, Rovers fans know this better than anyone.

And as for the Venkys, I wonder how much money they are syphoning out of the club? Could it get any worse for you lot, now you are below the Clarets in the table.

By the way, however many abusive responses I might get for this post, I don't care, because each poisonous word by way of retort will only further support the certainty you lot are suffering, what is to all Burnley fans, a hilarious ignominy for the most deluded supporters in the country.

get behind the lads, it`s all we can do.

Berg resigned as manager at Lillestrom after gaining 1 point out of a possible 24.

So how can anybody be surprised that he has now achieved just 1 win in 10 games or 3 points from a possible 30.

As many of us have said all along Berg was appointed because he was the 'Cheap Option' - i.e. he probably agreed to work with the existing coaching staff.

During the 5 week search for a new manager I recall seeing Shebby Singh on Sky Sports saying that it was crucial that Blackburn Rovers made the right appointment and that the only target this season was promotion.

As we are now 17th in the Champonship, just 7 points above the relegaton zone it is now clear that Singh, Shaw and Agnew made a huge mistake when they chose Berg.

Compare our recent results with those of Ipswich and it shows the difference a decent experienced manager could have made at Ewood.

Yes Berg inherited an unbalanced and an unfit squad but any football manager's main function is to maximise the potential of his playing staff.

Clearly Berg is unable to do this because his record with this squad is far worse than either Kean or Black.

Berg must not be given any more time or money and must be sacked immediately and replaced by someone such as Mark Hughes.

Would he come back, I don't know but things cannot be allowed to continue.
What happened to the 'drastic action' promised by Singh 3 weeks ago?

Surely Shebby's position at the club must be under threat.
What has he achieved in the past 6 months? - Absolutely nothing.

I also remember Venkys and Kean telling fans to look forward to Champions League football within 5 years.
The way we are going we will end up in League 2 - unless we go out of business first !!
Since Hughes left rovers, all he has done is spend lots of money on players that have failed. What is good about a manager who has been sacked from his last three clubs in the last four seasons. His record speaks for itself. Forget him.
Hughes is a low budget manager, that's why he did so well for us. Hes brilliant at getting the best out of average players and finding underperforming players and turning them into good players. Bentley, santa cruz, samba, pedersen, andy todd the list goes on. Give him millions to spend and he's useless. Venkys would love him signing players for buttons and selling them for 12m
That is his past record. it does not mean, that if he returns he will do, or be able to do the same again. But what we do know is that his record in the last four years is woeful in the premier league. It's the present, and future we care about,not the past.

The thing we don't have at the minute is any luck.

What I would give for a deflected shot to go in or for a penalty for any reason (that we score from) or an own goal in our favour. But the only luck we have currently is NO luck. It has to change though, the law of averages and football say that over a season this is the one thing that is shared out evenly. If that is the case then we must be saving an awful lot up for the second half of the season then!

Berg seems to be a decent and honest man doing his best (his way) to sort out who wants to play for the team and who doesn't want to play and who is prepared to put the effort in to help the team be successful - some of the performances at times in some of the recent games have been improved - but Henning needs the backing of the club during the Jan window to give himself and the Rovers the best chance of success.

A couple of decent players in the right positions who can strengthen the team and the performances and results will improve and the confidence will return (along with lady luck) and then we can consolidate the season and prepare to push on for next season. New Year - New Hopes.
As I said in the previous article this morning FR, another time, another situation, we could have given Berg time to find his feet. But as almost everyone on here have stated unanimously on here and everywhere else, we needed a manager to hit the ground running and work with what we have - which only an experienced manager could have done.

Alas, we don't have these luxuries and bringing in a part experienced manager has now led to us tumbling even further down the table. Unlike some doom monging honarary dingles, who don't even attend matches to be able to justify their experiences of individual performances, I do not believe we are relegation fodder or will be. What I do believe is unless we want to be doomed to a life in this league, Berg has to go. Thankfully it appears that Venky's are now heading in the same direction.

Put simply, Berg doesn't have the ability to get the best out of these players. He has gone on record to say his management decisions are his own and certainly Singh wasn't guiding him today seeing that he was in the commentary role. If these are his decisions then they are very poor indeed. No Vukevic again, no change in game play until we go a goal down - again!

He might be the nicest most honest decent man alive, he is not the man to get us out of this predicament and therefore he must go. The fact is that he should have never been employed in the first place but he is not going to step down yet under his own volition.

Venky's must act swift, and bring in someone with the ability to get this rabble playing for the shirt to stand any chance of going up the table again.
i understand your points BB but honestly do not think that sacking HB would do any good at all. No experienced or successful manager would come to Ewood if we had sacked two mangers in less than three months. If a new manager didn't get immediate success would he get sacked also? Who would come under those crazy conditions? Maybe someone from the lower or non league club if we were lucky. Possibly Joudan Ali or someone of that nature. What once was a good job at a decent club is now a poisoned chalice. Berg has to be given time, with proper support from the club then I still believe he can succeed. He has to succeed - there is no other option.
Good post JC.

I think FR must have been on the vino last night.
Joudan Ali - do me a favour.

Anyway, Berg has now been sacked - not before time.

He was the wrong choice and Singh, Shaw and Agnew must share the blame.
