Berg 'bitterly disappointed' over Blackburn Rovers sack

Henning Berg

Henning Berg

First published in Sport

HENNING Berg says he is ‘bitterly disappointed’ after being sacked by Blackburn Rovers today.

Berg was dismissed this morning after only 10 games in charge, the last of which was a 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough yesterday.

The Norwegian has now released a statement via the League Managers Association.

It read: "It goes without saying that I am bitterly disappointed to have been relieved of my managerial duties at Ewood Park after just 57 days since my appointment.

"At this stage I would just like to release a short statement thanking the Blackburn Rovers fans for their incredible support during my time in charge.

“I have always enjoyed a fantastic relationship with them dating back to my playing days where we shared some great memories.

“It was an honour for me to manage a club that is so close to my heart and I now wish all of them every success for the rest of the season and beyond.

"I would also like to thank the players and staff for their support and commitment in this short period.

“They have all done their best and unfortunately the results in these 10 games have not reflected their performances.

"I wish the club all the best in the future, and am sure that with a few additions in the January transfer window they will have a good chance of getting a play-off place."

Thanks for trying but you were always on a hiding to nothing! Good luck in the future. Take your own advice, don't touch a club with a barge pole unless it's run by footballing men.

Surely you would like to wish all the best to the incredible management support structure that appointed you?
All the best Henning, you are best away from the utter shambles that is BRFC.
This is just another installment of the joke that is how to run a football club by absolutely clueless owners.
The players must also have a good hard look in the mirror though.

Henning Berg was on a hiding to nothing taking the reins at Rovers and so will be the next manager.
Sir Alex , Harry Redknapp, The special one or Mark Hughes or any other name would not be able to pull us out the nose dive we are in.
The Premier League are the villains here allowing the present owners to take charge it is quite clear that the demise started on their appointment.
In my opinion until they are gone we will continue in the same vein whoever the man in charge is.
Yes it is true we are the laughing stock of football from Lands End to John o Groats with no solution anywhere close,

Yep. He should never have been appointed in the first place; what a change of mind he had after his previous comments about no manager in his right mind wanting the job. Why?
The statement did forget to thank the Vekys for their contribution to his Pension Fund...a good reason for his change of mind in the first place???

Another sad day in the history of our club. Berg has shown a degree of dignity that we associate with an age at Ewood before Venkys. Berg should have listened to his own advice and steered well clear of this job like so many others did. Now we hear that McDonald is favourite, a coach who has never managed a club only as caretaker but why should we be surprised, its Kean all over again. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. I won't Ho near Ewood until Venkys are gone for good, much prefer a well run club like Stanley.

A man of integrity at Ewood - never given a chance to do his own thing with his own p;layers - King was his only signing and he looks decent - will he stay now ?

I fear anyone in football will shun Ewood unless they are desparate for the money

Rovers will be offering another fabulous Half Season ticket offer to welcome the new man - it beggars belief how they have the face to blame everybody but themselves - Venkys & Singh have a proven track record - the worst ever - at leasty Portsmouth woin the FA Cup when they were going down the tubes - Rovers fans have had nothing for two years and the barren spell looks like continuing while Venkys are around

why would he thank the people that just sacked him? Not sure why he thanked the fans even especially if he had read some of the poison on here that was directed towards him.

Berg is well out of it and I hope he goes on to have a successful managerial career elsewhere in England. He is/was good enough to turn things round and we were unlucky at Boro not to have got anything. With the Jan window we could have started to have some success and now instead we are plunged back into uncertainty at a crucial time of the season....

Hughes In? Doubt it somehow, more likely to be the Ali and Singh show.

Thanks Henning. I have watched you many times and you were one of the greatest players to ever play for us, even my old man said you were one of the greatest players he ever saw play in the flesh. You were exceptional on the pitch, however you came up short over the 10 games you were given and it was a fair sacking. Wish you the best and hope you are still involved in football in the future and one day in Blackburn again.

How do you know what he has been paid? You've no idea what contractual terms he agreed to. I genuinely think it had some clause in or they wouldnt have sacked him. Venkys dont believe in paying to sack employees.

The job wasnt right for Berg. It was too complex a situation to step into and unless he made an immediate impact which would effect a momentum he was always going to be under too much pressure. He can still leave with his head held higher than Kean and despite the results and the dire situation at our club, Burnley still couldnt beat even under Berg.

Unless I see clear evidence that Venkys move to correct their humungous mistakes and remove that jibbering fool and appoint a proper manager, I cant go down to Ewood anymore. When Im shown some respect as a fan, I will reconsider. Im not expecting to win every game, Im not expecting to get promoted but I do expect the club to be run like a football club and not a chicken factory and have proper football people in charge. I expect that I will be waiting a long time to reconsider though. In the meantime I might go down to Stanley

I feel sorry for the guy, he was inexperienced, in the toughest league in the world to get out of, with players who really don't want to know and bosses who literally don't know where Blackburn is! I'm not going to slate him, but his subs(or lack of), at times were baffling and he never showed any real passion, which the rovers fans are desperate for at the moment. Of course this all comes back to that no mark Singh and his ability to mess everything up from bottom to top. He should follow berg out and shame on those idiot rovers fans who applauded him after the dingle game. They know who they are. As for a new manager I have no faith in the no mark to pick anyone decent but Grayson, Hill, Lambert if he gets the sack at villa, or o Driscoll would be a half decent shouts. Hughes has no experience in this league, or luck which we need a lot of!

Well the latest rumour doing the rounds, and I hope it ain't true is that Mrs D has waded in and ripped into those who put pressure on to get rid of her favourite and is citing our position under Kean as challenging for automatic promotion to our predicament now, ordered Berg and the back room sackings and has arranged a deal to bring back Kean. The coaches appointed tomorrow will be of Keans choosing and Singh is seriously having his wings clipped before being managed out of the club. Don't put your mortgage on Hughes or MacDonald, get your money on Kean.

That's probably why Skybet are offering odds of 100/1 on Kean's return then.

1 win in 10 games here, , well what did you expect

Don't shoot the messenger cause I hope to hell it isn't right but you may recall the bookies had Sherwood 1/8, McKinley 1/8 and OGS at 1/4 during the last management selection fiasco. And what price was Berg, the eventual appointment?????

I would love to see Kean back! That would just sum up the whole fiasco. As I am not going to the matches it would not bother me but it would be hilarious to think that Mrs D could stick two fingers up to the whole of the Rovers faithful fans who have stuck by them through thick and thin. To be treated with such disdain would just about put the final nail in the Venky's coffin.

Only Mrs D knows the answer so she will put a lot of bets on whoever she is going to appoint. At very long odds. Using her friends to allay suspicion. Then she will have enough money after doing the same with Berg to build herself another chicken factory.

Berg was one of the best defenders b/burn ever had.. in my experience since 1970.. However that does not qualify him or any other person from that era as a manager. Calls for Hughes or Mcarthy as manager are futile, as are calls for ANY manager with any credentials. Who would want to work for these w@nkers? We are fcuked. Long Live the BRFC. I once knew....

You got what you wanted, now Shebby is picking the team, prepare to be overwhelmed by a load of portugese mincers and the return of Bradley Orr and Myles Anderson. The whole situation was caused by Shebby bigging himself up to the action group. So ACTION GROUP AND SHEBBY SINGH consider yourself potted
MULLEN OUT AND TAKE SHAGGY WITH YOU.
Potted? I think you've had rather too much pot and as for out, your certainly out of it. The calibre on here is obviously well in excess of your intelligence, may I suggest you try the dingle pages, more to your liking but they do tend to be rather sparse. I'm also so sorry that they stopped printing The Dandy, obviously a big loss in your life hence you turn up on here. Shame

Please just go away - you are obviously mentally ill.

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys buy Rovers ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys sack SA ?

Did Glen Mullen get rid of JW, TF, JG ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys appoint SK and then make them keep him long after it was clear to everyone in world football that he should have gone ?

Did Glen Mullan waste money (skim off millions ?) in 4 transfer windows on cr@p players ?

Did Glen Mullan have any say in the appointment of HB ?

I think even you, Mr Nut-case will see that Glen had nothing to do with any of these events.

You may have a personal grudge against Glen (for non Rovers reasons) but please don't try to twist history to add vent to your dislike of the man - it just makes you look even more stupid that you already propably are.

So, the Rovers faithful who abandoned their team, scuse me while I scratch my head a bit and try to understand your nonsense logic. Faithful=abandon in your world

Mark Fish has a right to his opinion on the HB sacking which happens to be inline with most Rovers fans on the LT poll which currently runs at approx -

66% said the sacking was right and 34% wrong.

And for the record - I voted that I thought it was wrong.

I also think that BRAG should distance themselves from SS and have made a mistake in moving into Ewood - but to blame everything that has happened at Ewood over the last 2 years on BRAG and Glen Mullen inparticular whilst never even mentioning Venkys at all is just complete and utter madness.

I have nothing against Mullen on a personal level, but its gone down hill faster than a bowling ball since Shaggy and the action group started discussing club matters. How many managers do we need in two months, can we all have a do until someone wins a game and then make him manager.
Whats the point of bringing in Berg and giving him nothing but turd to work with. The action group have already made a statement about it being the right thing to do, so as they have no brains due to smelting lead and sniffing the fumes, consider them potted.

Thats the problem we have now, a club supported by kneejerkers and backed up by kneejerkers with kneejerkers left to pick the side.
Some come on here and comment and they don't even go, so their comments are null and void.
Shaggy and the action men will have us playing Flittys Chorley in three years, but they got their own base at ewood and took a nice photo opprtunity when the need arose.
OUT WITH THE ACTION GROUP< OUT WITH SHAGGY, they all need evicting Take JC with you, you've all been potted.

Consider yourself potted and take JC with yer.[/p][/quote]Mark Fish has a right to his opinion on the HB sacking which happens to be inline with most Rovers fans on the LT poll which currently runs at approx - 66% said the sacking was right and 34% wrong. And for the record - I voted that I thought it was wrong. I also think that BRAG should distance themselves from SS and have made a mistake in moving into Ewood - but to blame everything that has happened at Ewood over the last 2 years on BRAG and Glen Mullen inparticular whilst never even mentioning Venkys at all is just complete and utter madness.[/p][/quote]Thats the problem we have now, a club supported by kneejerkers and backed up by kneejerkers with kneejerkers left to pick the side. Some come on here and comment and they don't even go, so their comments are null and void. Shaggy and the action men will have us playing Flittys Chorley in three years, but they got their own base at ewood and took a nice photo opprtunity when the need arose. OUT WITH THE ACTION GROUP< OUT WITH SHAGGY, they all need evicting Take JC with you, you've all been potted. 8 Ball Deluxe

Good to see.Mrs D and the Rao boys on here. Poor old Venkys, never to blame, always the victims and never to blame. Not an ounce of passion for our club in this post.
MULLEN OUT SHEBBY OUT DRECKLEY OUT. ACTION GROUP OUT&gt; THE MISSING 10000 OUT.
You got what you wanted, now Shebby is picking the team, prepare to be overwhelmed by a load of portugese mincers and the return of Bradley Orr and Myles Anderson. The whole situation was caused by Shebby bigging himself up to the action group. So ACTION GROUP AND SHEBBY SINGH consider yourself potted
MULLEN OUT AND TAKE SHAGGY WITH YOU.
Please just go away - you are obviously mentally ill.

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys buy Rovers ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys sack SA ?

Did Glen Mullen get rid of JW, TF, JG ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys appoint SK and then make them keep him long after it was clear to everyone in world football that he should have gone ?

Did Glen Mullan waste money (skim off millions ?) in 4 transfer windows on cr@p players ?

Did Glen Mullan have any say in the appointment of HB ?

I think even you, Mr Nut-case will see that Glen had nothing to do with any of these events.

You may have a personal grudge against Glen (for non Rovers reasons) but please don't try to twist history to add vent to your dislike of the man - it just makes you look even more stupid that you already propably are.
I have nothing against Mullen on a personal level, but its gone down hill faster than a bowling ball since Shaggy and the action group started discussing club matters. How many managers do we need in two months, can we all have a do until someone wins a game and then make him manager.
Whats the point of bringing in Berg and giving him nothing but turd to work with. The action group have already made a statement about it being the right thing to do, so as they have no brains due to smelting lead and sniffing the fumes, consider them potted. As Mullen is the face of the action group, OUT WITH MULLEN OUT WITH SHAGGY an OUT WITH THE ACTION GROUP. you've all been potted.
I am sorry but you are completely and utterly stark raving bonkers.

BRAG have no say in the running of BFRC - yes they have had meetings with SS but so have numerous other Rovers fans groups and I don't hear you spouting your bile at those groups.

Also, not in any of your posts do you blame VENKYS, you seem to paint Steve Kean as a virginal sacrifice - which he was most cetainly not - nor do you blame JA for his terrible advice and the skimming off of millions from our club.
All you have done is focus on BRFC and Glen Mullen neither of whom have EVER had any say in the decision making of BRFC - I think ultimately ALL Rovers decisions are made by Mrs Desai - someone who you have never mentioned in any of your posts either !

How can anyone say Bergs sacking is wrong

Berg has the worst record as a manager in World football so how can anyone say the sacking is wrong?Fact Berg should never have been appointed, nor should 90% of the short list that has been drawn up for his replacement all massive failures at previous clubs, it just amazes me how these people even get considered for such a role.
Take Hughe's the bookies favourite, he had an ok time at Rovers when we had a much better squad than we have now, but he walked out on the club. Hughe's got lucky in the transfer window a few times which is what you need when he was last at the Rovers, but he has done nothing since. Sacked by Man City, arguably the same at Fulham although he claims he resigned with no job to go to, the truth will never be known, he was then sacked at QPR after spending a small fortune and guiding them to the bottom of the league so how is he right for us. Someone please tell me how Hughes even gets a job again on stupid money let alone be favourite for us! You can say the same also for most of the others on the list as well. Jewel, nothing at Derby, nothing at Ipswich, Kean the same as well, failed everywere he has ever managed, why are we even thinking of these people. I suppose at least if Kean is appointed the fans can keep the same banners Kean out for 4 months down the line. Demattao, please guys, Europe is calling after winning the Champions league and fans think he will come to the Rovers, get real.

Rovers need someone like Odriscoll or Curbishly, proven football men who will role their sleeves up and restore Rovers to what we should be, or Solkshire a young manager that is quietly gaining a lot of admires for the way he goes about his business.

Please Venkys do not appoint Hughes, lets get someone who can restore the Rovers to its former glory not someone who has been sacked for failing at multiple clubs in the past.

Look JC, BRAG BRIST ACTION GROUP SUPPORTERS TRUST and UNCLE TOM COBBLEY haven't even the resources pooled together to run a hot dog stand. Venkys have made aome very serious blunders since taking over, but all these groups have no financial clout whatsoever, and all these groups certainly don't represent me. I have my own opinion which YOU are entitled to. Venkys have the finances to get us out of this mess, if they stop listening to asian comedians and metal benders, dodgey agents and action groups they may get somewhere, ever heard the saying too many cooks spoil the broth?

I've got nothing to do with the KGB, I am that infuriated by the constant kneejerk reactionists that I can contain myself no longer. What a club needs is stability not a new manager every 2 months. The next one is going to come in and still have the same ingredients to work with.
When are you lot going to wake up, it makes no difference if Jose Mourinho came in, the team is weak down the middle and to sack Berg now was a massive own goal. If it takes 6 weeks to get someone who will work under this shambles, the window will be shut, thus guaranteeing relegation.

But I have to say you did way to good a job and your cover was blown. Thank goodness we did not pay you in advance. Still, it has been a nice little earner for you. Lets work it out on a daily basis. 3 year contract at say 1.5 million a year equals 4.5 million divided by 57 equals just under 79000 a day !!! Now that is impressive by any standard.

Berg was one of the best defenders b/burn ever had.. in my experience since 1970.. However that does not qualify him or any other person from that era as a manager. Calls for Hughes or Mcarthy as manager are futile, as are calls for ANY manager with any credentials. Who would want to work for these w@nkers? We are fcuked. Long Live the BRFC. I once knew....

To all those who are happy to go along with this farce, you will reap what you sow.

How on earth can sacking a good truthful person be a step forward for this club full of liars and cheats?

There are a lot of nodding dogs with heads full of cliches pretending that the numb owners have done the right thing. You ain't seen nothing yet, they are dispicable representatives of doom, and if you want to follow that carry on nodding.

How dare they leave a lying untrustworthy lawbreaker in charge spouting rubbish for two years and overseeing top proffessionals leave, turning many fans against their lack of proffessionalism, de valuing the club to a large degree, and then when a Gentleman arrives show him the door after a fraction of that time?

They should be held accountable for their many crimes against the Rovers and if they could be botherd to visit their club, should be deported for such crimes. They are scum, very wealthy scum, but never the less scum.

Why endure Kean - loathed from day1 by all Rovers fans - for so long then boot out Berg, former club legend, so fast.

I wish I believed we would now get in a real managerial heavyweight. We won't though. After the usual PR bull about Mourinho or Fergie (ok, Hughes and Di Mateo) will probably give one of the ball boys a run. Cheap and desperate enough to risk their reputation in the Venkys madhouse. Ideal.

Online Report:

EXCLUSIVE
By Jack Gaughan
Blackburn Rovers have identified Roberto Di Matteo as the man they want to succeed Henning Berg and are already in the process of replacing the Norwegian’s backroom team, Goal.com can reveal.

Berg was relieved of his duties on Tuesday night after Rovers’ 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough brought an end to his 57-day reign as Steve Kean's successor.

The likelihood of Champions League winner Di Matteo accepting the job remains remote, while the early bookies' favourite Mark Hughes – a former manager at Ewood Park – has distanced himself from the post.

The Blackburn hierarchy were on Wednesday already sorting out a management team for the weekend’s game against Barnsley, and met with former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald in order to try and rubber stamp his appointment as caretaker boss.

MacDonald is set to be joined by Judan Ali, described as a rising star in coaching, and a man whose cause global advisor Shebby Singh championed when Kean left the club.

It is understood that Alex McLeish was discussed at the meeting with MacDonald – the pair worked together at Villa Park - and could switch his interest to Rovers, but the former Scotland manager was announced as the new Nottingham Forest on Thursday evening.

MacDonald and Ali are expected to be joined in some capacity by midfielder Danny Murphy, who was brought to the club in the summer with a view to getting him involved on the coaching side.

Colin Hendry and Gary Bowyer, the only senior members of staff remaining after all decks were cleared, took training. Hendry, the former club captain, had been demoted to the position of reserve team coach earlier this month.

Singh, Derek Shaw and Paul Agnew, the trio who collectively decided to compromise their own wishes to make the decision to appoint Berg 10 games ago, have been urged to employ an experienced manager to appease the supporters.

Di Matteo has that at Championship level after winning promotion with West Brom in 2010, but is unlikely to drop down the divisions after success at Chelsea.

The club took five weeks to get Berg in, a candidate who was nobody’s first choice, but Rovers are determined to make a swift appointment and put in place a backroom staff to entice the right sort of manager to Ewood Park

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys buy Rovers ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys sack SA ?

Did Glen Mullen get rid of JW, TF, JG ?

Did Glen Mullan make Venkys appoint SK and then make them keep him long after it was clear to everyone in world football that he should have gone ?

Did Glen Mullan waste money (skim off millions ?) in 4 transfer windows on cr@p players ?

Did Glen Mullan have any say in the appointment of HB ?

I think even you, Mr Nut-case will see that Glen had nothing to do with any of these events.

You may have a personal grudge against Glen (for non Rovers reasons) but please don't try to twist history to add vent to your dislike of the man - it just makes you look even more stupid that you already propably are.
\I just have one question to add.

Q: Did BRAG say that they had evidence of wrong doings by the Venkys that was given to the FA et al that would expose them and bring down their reign as club owners?
A: Yes they did but since Shebby came on the scene it's all gone quiet. Where is this evidence now? Still being investigated?

Thats it, I stumbled on it by mistake, Sean Dick van Dyche will be the next manager, he ticks all the boxes.
1 He is at a dead end no hope rubbish club that lacks ambition and smells
2 He has a bald head so he can be airbrushed easily on a team photo.
3 He is ginger so he cannot go to india or will die of sunburn.
4 He will wear a wig at the christmas party
5 He wants to move to a bigger club like Eddie Howe did
6 He likes chicken currie.
7 A ginger in a claret and blue tracksuit, c'mon a definite fashion faux pas

The reason Hendry is still there, is because he took a Loan out from the venkeys, so i suppose they would keep him on til he has repaid that, i might be wrong but that's what i reckon, need a good solid experienced manager & coaches. DI Matteo will never come here under this Bizarre regime, i used to look forward to going to rovers games now ive totally lost interest, feel like throwing my season ticket in the bin. we know nothing about our club, there is no implication of then even wanting to correspond with us, fans was crying out for an experienced manager, it wasn't HB's fault, its just a continuous shambles, hope 2013 is a better year for us all.

Online Report:

EXCLUSIVE
By Jack Gaughan
Blackburn Rovers have identified Roberto Di Matteo as the man they want to succeed Henning Berg and are already in the process of replacing the Norwegian’s backroom team, Goal.com can reveal.

Berg was relieved of his duties on Tuesday night after Rovers’ 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough brought an end to his 57-day reign as Steve Kean's successor.

The likelihood of Champions League winner Di Matteo accepting the job remains remote, while the early bookies' favourite Mark Hughes – a former manager at Ewood Park – has distanced himself from the post.

The Blackburn hierarchy were on Wednesday already sorting out a management team for the weekend’s game against Barnsley, and met with former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald in order to try and rubber stamp his appointment as caretaker boss.

MacDonald is set to be joined by Judan Ali, described as a rising star in coaching, and a man whose cause global advisor Shebby Singh championed when Kean left the club.

It is understood that Alex McLeish was discussed at the meeting with MacDonald – the pair worked together at Villa Park - and could switch his interest to Rovers, but the former Scotland manager was announced as the new Nottingham Forest on Thursday evening.

MacDonald and Ali are expected to be joined in some capacity by midfielder Danny Murphy, who was brought to the club in the summer with a view to getting him involved on the coaching side.

Colin Hendry and Gary Bowyer, the only senior members of staff remaining after all decks were cleared, took training. Hendry, the former club captain, had been demoted to the position of reserve team coach earlier this month.

Singh, Derek Shaw and Paul Agnew, the trio who collectively decided to compromise their own wishes to make the decision to appoint Berg 10 games ago, have been urged to employ an experienced manager to appease the supporters.

Di Matteo has that at Championship level after winning promotion with West Brom in 2010, but is unlikely to drop down the divisions after success at Chelsea.

Ex Atletico Madrid manager Gregorio Manzano wants to talk to Blackburn about the manager vacancy at the club according to Sky Sports.

His record at Mallorca is very impressive, got them to 5th in La Liga in 2010 (won his first 10 home games) despite financial difficulties but was unable to to stay because they couldn't afford to offer him another contract.

Sacked by Atletico Madrid in 2011 for finishing 10th with them. Still though, very good CV.

The problem though is, is that this is the championship and we need a proven manager for this league. Manzano would be for the unlikely event that we get to the Premier League.

MacDonald will be caretaker boss, not permanent manager, then he'll go to assistant manager and Judan Ali is hired as a coach.

DiMatteo would be great, but never ever going to happen.

I have absolutely no clue who will be hired. You can't predict anything with our club.

I think you better let GA Shiggy know.

The truth behind Henning's appointment and the 5 weeks it took was that nobody else wanted the job. I see Shuggy and his sidekick Hendry picking the team for sometime yet until SS can persuade another potential manager with nothing to lose to take over.

The lifeboats have all been launched but the band is just still playing

If this is correct then it is a total disaster for the Rovers. I jokingly said earlier today that we would end up with Judan Ali and Shebby running the team but never thought it could actually happen!

...but this is even worse - as not only Ali and Singh would be involved with running the team - we would also have McDonald and Hendry and Murphy all involved in different capacities. What a diabolical mess awaits us. I wonder if all the fans that never wanted Berg to be given a chance in the first place and that have been on his back for weeks now and posted how pleased they were with his sacking today are having second thoughts now?

Berg was being his own man and doing things his own way and would have helped get our club back on winning ways given time and restored some much needed dignity to the town in the process.

Now it seems we will have 100% Venky people in place, none of them honest Rovers men like Berg - but all of them money-grabbing opportunists who have no love for the club or for the people of Blackburn. The only love they have is for their ever increasing bank accounts God help the club now it is perhaps lost to us forever.
[quote][p][bold]Rover-The-Moon[/bold] wrote: Online Report: EXCLUSIVE By Jack Gaughan Blackburn Rovers have identified Roberto Di Matteo as the man they want to succeed Henning Berg and are already in the process of replacing the Norwegian’s backroom team, Goal.com can reveal. Berg was relieved of his duties on Tuesday night after Rovers’ 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough brought an end to his 57-day reign as Steve Kean's successor. The likelihood of Champions League winner Di Matteo accepting the job remains remote, while the early bookies' favourite Mark Hughes – a former manager at Ewood Park – has distanced himself from the post. The Blackburn hierarchy were on Wednesday already sorting out a management team for the weekend’s game against Barnsley, and met with former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald in order to try and rubber stamp his appointment as caretaker boss. MacDonald is set to be joined by Judan Ali, described as a rising star in coaching, and a man whose cause global advisor Shebby Singh championed when Kean left the club. It is understood that Alex McLeish was discussed at the meeting with MacDonald – the pair worked together at Villa Park - and could switch his interest to Rovers, but the former Scotland manager was announced as the new Nottingham Forest on Thursday evening. MacDonald and Ali are expected to be joined in some capacity by midfielder Danny Murphy, who was brought to the club in the summer with a view to getting him involved on the coaching side. Colin Hendry and Gary Bowyer, the only senior members of staff remaining after all decks were cleared, took training. Hendry, the former club captain, had been demoted to the position of reserve team coach earlier this month. Singh, Derek Shaw and Paul Agnew, the trio who collectively decided to compromise their own wishes to make the decision to appoint Berg 10 games ago, have been urged to employ an experienced manager to appease the supporters. Di Matteo has that at Championship level after winning promotion with West Brom in 2010, but is unlikely to drop down the divisions after success at Chelsea.

Whilst Shebby is there I can't see an experienced Manager wanting to come as Shebby seems to want to be involved with a hands on role, rather than sit back monitor and advise. I think he will always clash with the Manager who ever he is. Therefore I have a feeling it will be much of the same type of manager as before or I could even see Shebby taking up a joint or Managers roll and that way he could do his own thing and he would sink or swim by his own actions as he now needs to take full responsibility for what he is doing. But lets wait and see if they shock us ang get a high profile boss and his team in. But it's more likely he has cleared the ground to do his own thing. Lets see.

The sacking of Henning Berg I can assure you is bad news for the club and genuine supporters of Blackburn Rovers. Henning deserved to be treated a lot better; he needed time and support to try to put two years of mismanagement right. Sadly , this was not to be; the Board of Blackburn Rovers should take a good look at itself (again). I fear for the future this football club because no one seems to really care any more; it has now been two years of a total shambles. There are after all other football clubs which are worth supporting, Wigan, Accrington, Preston and dare I say it Burnley. All four of these clubs are far better run than Blackburn Rovers.

Typical Indian management, appointing there own kind in key roles, even though everyone knows that your average rovers fan down the pub would do a better job as global advisor than Shaggy Minge.

My first game I watched was 1958,my last game I watched was against Cardiff. Have watched Rovers through thick and thin,good and bad years, through the divisions both home and away. It pains me to say that Cardiff will be the last I see of them. I like many have had enough. When SK went I was hoping for a better future for the club,but that optimism has now gone.Rovers now are in freefall,not just on the pitch but inside the club. I am not one who voices my disgust at matches,it doesn't work.SK had that for 2 years and still they never sacked him.

An OK time?

I caught a few minutes of one of the Sky season reviews last night and Rovers were in fifth - ahead of Arsenal - and a point outside the top four.

Hughes saved us from relegation, stabilised the team, got us playing some pretty decent football which got us into Europe.

......plus he made us the thick end of £40mill in transfers

Sounds a bit more than OK.

And leaving the club? Any ambitious manager having proved himself at this level would have done. Get real, we couldn't hang on to our top players even when Uncle Jack (RIP) was here.

There is no way he will come back in any case; he has still got a semblance of common sense.

There is no way he will come back in any case; he has still got a semblance of common sense. whappen

Shebby will be picking the team and he'll have a couple of his stooges doing the 'coaching'.
Hughes won't be coming, nor will De Matteo, in fact no-one of any repute will be anywhere near this club while the circus continues.
Also there'll be no promotion this year or next, not even the play-offs. We are heading in the other direction. FUBAR.
No structure, no finances and with Shebby, no idea either.
I'm sad that now in our 3rd year under these owners, we are still suffering and see no end in sight.

To BRAG I say, issue a statement distancing yourselves from Shebby and have nothing to do with the conman, you are being tarnished through association.

On the 13th.December. Hendry got demoted from first team defensive coach to assistant coach of the reserves,Hendry keeps his job we let good men go and we keep Keans driver?
why is Hendry still there?
Was it a tactical move demote him before the cull,keep him out of the way.
We hear Hendry has moved into a big new house in Blackpool, his friend got locked up in jail for two years for fraud and money laundering and as this friend of hendry's goes to jail ,days later Hendry moves into his house.

One statement from Shebby Singh's interview on Sky Sports News sums up our current plight perfectly. That statement is "I think we are always smarter after something happens. There are many people out there who are very, very clever but they are not in a position like me to make decisions." The problem is that there is no one on the inside of the club at present who is capable of making informed footballing decisions. Instead we have a so-called pundit who the clueless Rao Family have allowed to embark upon an ego trip. Singh is nothing more than a comical figure who is rapidly taking our club towards the First Division and football oblivion. Talk of regaining Premiership status is getting more fanciful by the second. Singh has got to go. He has left our club devoid of credibility and devoid of hope as he continues to play his own version of fantasy football.

I think each and every supporter has an ideal opportunity to vote with their feet coming up soon. The upcoming F A cup match against Bristol City is currently being marketed and the tickets are full price!

If it is put out as a proper statement to the club VIA the media or a fans forum that this is the start of the boycotting of the club, until some drastic action is taken, the owners and Singh will have to react.

It was very obvious at the meeting at Blakeys, that Singh was sent in oder to get the fans back through the turstiles and I firmly believe that all fans have an ideal opportunity to show him and the owners what we think. Funds were collected VIA a facebook account to arrange for the plane message. This time, a similar type of arrangment with a couple of adverts in the national papers would be a unique and effective way of Garnering real publicity.

I am not saying this is a perfect soultion, but it;'s a start and one worth trying!

If it means 3 years in the 2nd division so be it the club needs consolidating and the managers who i think would be most capable!
Mark Robbins, Phil Parkinson and Pat Fenlon are three men who should be looked at not the same tired old names. The likes of these men GIVEN TIME could turn the club around.
They must be given time by both Venkys and the supporters thier is no easy or quick fix to the present situation and all must except this.

This is from an article on the Rovers in an India Daily paper today:

The search for a new manager is being conducted by Shebby Singh, the former television presenter who is Blackburn's 'global adviser' on a reported salary of pounds 400,000 a year.

Singh approached MacDonald, who won two of seven games during a spell as caretaker manager at Villa, last month about becoming Berg's assistant. Now he appears to be the most likely candidate for the job, although there was speculation last night that Judan Ali, a Londoner of Asian heritage, could be involved in the new coaching set-up.

Says it all really.....400k for ruining (not running) the Rovers!

Even the most diehard Rovers fan must be sick to his/her back teeth by the latest goings on at Ewood Park. NOW is the time to show the Venky's we will not take any more. Next home game and the FA cup game please consider not going. I know it goes against the grain to desert them in their hour of need but if the last two years have taught us anything it is that the Venky's won't listen. Maybe if it humiliates them so much to see an empty stadium then as a proud family they will see the error of their ways and DO something positive for a change. Like Sell up and get the hell out of there!!!!

Good article in the Telegraph which ends:

"Gary Bowyer and Colin Hendry from the academy will pick the team for Saturday's trip to Barnsley. Bowyer, who has taken over training ahead of Ali and McDonald starting work, is the youth-team coach who has a good pedigree of bringing through players into the first team such as David Hoillett and Phil Jones.
Meanwhile, club executives Paul Agnew and Derek Shaw have been summoned to India."

Stuff on and about Judan Ali:

Blackburn's Indian owners are preparing to appoint English professional football’s first British Asian coach, a 39-year-old former Arsenal trainee who until recently was running a community youth programme in Dagenham.

Judan Ali has also been the subject of ‘below average’ Bollywood movie Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal but his coaching experience hardly qualifies him to step in at Ewood Park in the wake of Henning Berg’s shock dismissal. Ali’s finest achievement to date was leading an Indian Under 15 side to victory in Arsenal’s ‘football festival’ in 2011.

Berg was sacked on Thursday after just 57 days and a run of one win from 10 games that has left Blackburn 17th in the Championship.
Before his departure he had, however, met Ali, who had spent a week observing the Norwegian former Rovers defender at the club’s Brockhall headquarters.

Ali’s Twitter page has been taken down but on it, he had described himself as ‘an independent football coach leading those who want to further themselves on the world stage and to surpass the elite’.

London-born Ali, whose family moved to the UK from India, was on Arsenal’s books as a YTS trainee but blamed the racist culture within English football in the 80s and 90s for his failure to secure a professional contract in this country. He played for Spanish club Murcia before his coaching career.

Blackburn are said to be comfortable seeing how the arrangement with MacDonald and Ali works out, and will not rush into appointing a more high-profile manager.

‘My goal is to become the first British Asian Premier League manager,’ he said. ‘I want to take a country to the World Cup and the 2022 tournament in Qatar is my goal.
‘It’s a myth that British Asians cannot play football. I hope I’m showing young Asians in this country that they can make it and that things are changing from the experiences I suffered as a teenager.’
Ali’s appointment will form part of a move by Venky’s to assume closer control of the club. When they became the Premier League’s first Indian owners two years ago, the Rao family talked about tapping into Blackburn’s Asian community and offering a route into English football for young players from their homeland. They have plans to open an academy near the company headquarters in Pune.

From all the above information it seems clear that the Venkys master plan to make the Rovers an 'English-Asian' club is now one step closer to fruition. Not sure how else you can view/read the latest developments? Could it be a ground-breaking innovation in global football or could it just be another sorry fiasco in the downward spiral that the Rovers have been in since Venkys took over the club? I know which I would bet on!

Glen, I have just read you post and agree that the club is rotten to the core. I also agree that the blame lies with those who have profitted from the demise, but perhaps not solely.

I know you have taken great amounts of time and effort in taking the 400 page document to the authorites. Why has all this gone quiet? Is there anything it it that will lead to the Venky's ownership of the club being revoked?

If you and the rest of you colleagues feel that there is, then why do you continue to support the club. By supporting the club you are supporting this regime. I am not having a go with this post, I just think we need to ramp up the pressure on getting these people removed once and for all.

You were a legend as a player and will remain so Henning. Someone who gave their all and showed what passion and commitment blended with quality can do. A true gentleman who has failed in very trying circumstances. If it's any consolation i don't believe its actually possible to succeed in this job with the current owners and structure of running the club. Thanks for at least giving it your all though. Your original assessment of the club (though probably made without knowing it) was spot on - this is a complete shambles.
Morale is at rock bottom, only one thing could plummet it deeper and that's the appointment and royal pune approval of mr. sharky singh to an even greater power base.

In the dark days of last season when the crowd were divided on how to get the odious one out somebody on here compared those fans still attending to a "deluded battered wife who thinks he will change". A thoroughly unpleasant but now frighteningly accurate analogy.

Some thought "he had changed" when Berg arrived, but just a few weeks later we've been pushed down the stairs and now he's sitting on our settee drinking beer with his new girlfriend.

The only way forward is to dispense with the current management and bring football people in who can assess the situation and are not afaid of relating the facts and home truths to the Venkeys.[/p][/quote]Rubbish players like yakubu???

What Rovers faithful would that be, last time I looked the boycotters had forgot to come back, acting on mullens advice and yet they failed to return when Kean was potted.
You can't be a natural Darrener, you must be an imigrant as you know nothing about loyalty. Darreners stick together and never jibb out. You have jibbed out so Just like Mullen and Shebby, consider yourself potted.
Idiot 8ball. I was being ironic when I said Rovers faithful I will explain to you in simple language. I was referring to the idiots that supported the Venkys by attending the matches during Kean's tenure NOT the Rovers fans that had the sense not to support Kean and the Venky's. consider yourself black balled.
Surely Darrener, You know who this is.

The language is just the same as that used by our old friend RUinsane / Magnificent 7 and any other name he has used in the past.
Stop trying to sink me in the corner pocket with your pigeon holing mind.
Yesterday someone said I was in the KGB, today I'm supposed to be magnificently insane, I know exactly who I am.
I am 100% correct, all you knobby knowitalls who wanted Berg out without letting him buy his own players, well now you have excelled yourselves and we are going to end up with the guy with the elephant off the Peugeot advert, Mogli from jungle book and Junaid Ali as coaches and Shaggy minge picking the team and making the signings.
You got what you wanted and its all your fault

LET. Ditch the childish account names and start giving real names and addresses in good old letter to the paper style. That way the trollers and abusers will die away and we might have a website worth reading instead of this dross.

The time has come for a TOTAL boycott of Ewood Park. Let the pictures of a n empty football ground go round the world, and see what Venky's think then.

If I was one of the players, and these two idiots started talking tactics, I would leave the room! Then again, what about the whole squad going on strike in protest at these SHYSTERS destroying our club.

Absolutely agree. People can pay their money and make their choice. Just think though before you go to Ewood again. By going you are supporting Venkys, no ifs or buts. By staying away you are helping to get rid of them . The Bristol City cup tie would be an ideal starter. Don't go. Lets see thousands and thousands o fblue seats in the Riverside!

Aren't they supposed to come back first before it will count as a boycott. Oh I get it, just to show Venkys how much they are missing the next home game will have 30000 in and then the one after there will be no one, cunning plan you've got there.

Me too Harwoodbue. I was quite prepared to give Berg a chance especially during the transfer window when he could have got rid of Kean's rubbish players.
It's funny how these so called "rovers fans" come out of the woodwork calling other fans. Change of names does not mean chang of ideas. Once an idiot always an idiot.

Great idea - except those who post moronic stuff would make up a name and address. I find it easier to skim over Burnley posts as they are the same handful and contain the same phrases easily recognisable at a glance, nothing new to say, just hysterical insanity.

Berg out they cried, well now he's out, you got what you wanted and now your moaning because of who they brought in again, already.
If venkys have to keep on paying up three year contracts, thats taking out money that could have been spent on players and coaching staff. What reasonable manager would come and work where he gets sacked after 57 days without making one signing?
Keep up your moaning, soon we will have the quality watch seller from Delhi 7 day market.
Kept on saying on here when you wanted Kean out, be careful what you wish for, said the same about Berg, now look where we are.
And then to come on here all innocent like saying, it was him mister, it was him that dun it. Pathetic. If you keep kicking a hornets nest, prepare to get stung and you have been. But what do you monkeys do? thats right, you keep kicking it, WELL HELLO.

You sir are a complete muppet. 10 of my family renewed once Kean resigned. I know 3 other families from work that did the same and we couldnt have been the only ones. You make up your own facts to support your own argument. Reading your comments is as boring. You are a repetitive mouthpiece. I regret keeping to my word and buying another season ticket at an increased cost. We were well and truly had and I wont be going again until sense prevails. Im beginning to feel dirty having any part in whats going on down there. I can imagine the players asking for the transfer list.
Hope the boo boys stay away and dont spoil the atmosphere. Also what a load of codswallop, speculation, rumour mongering on this site. Be patient, calm down and see who they appoint. Yes the risk they took with Henning did not work out. See what happens and who they appoint.

LET. Ditch the childish account names and start giving real names and addresses in good old letter to the paper style. That way the trollers and abusers will die away and we might have a website worth reading instead of this dross.
Great idea - except those who post moronic stuff would make up a name and address. I find it easier to skim over Burnley posts as they are the same handful and contain the same phrases easily recognisable at a glance, nothing new to say, just hysterical insanity. Its the other so-called Rovers fans that are the most irritating. Those people who dont discuss their club but slag off their supposed fellow fans. They are like from some anger management school - them against the world.
I skim over yours as well most of the time. :0)
Anyway the other day you said, do you remeber that body they found in the drains on the nuttall street side, yeah his name was Julian I think. He was my brothers ex girlfriends boyfriend at the time. He was a nice lad.

calm down, dont believe everything you read in papers or columns from speculators. Shebby got the decision right to sign Rhodes, got it right getting rid of Kean. He's made a mistake with the appointment of Henning Berg as the risk he toook did not pay. I have confidence this time round they will appoint the right person. They need to get it right. Hughes or De Matteo for me. Come on Shebby, splash the money out.
Mark Hughes has already said he isnt interested. Its alright having confidence but imagining that De Matteo or Hughes would consider working for that bunch of amateurs suggests you havent grasped the situation at Rovers. Why do you think we had Berg? Not Shebby's astute football brain. It was because nobody else wanted the job.

Aren't they supposed to come back first before it will count as a boycott.

Bye...It's alright criticising me, I can take it, but what's your plan for getting rid of the W*****s. Oh I forgot, you never Criticise Venkys, do you.
Of course I criticise Venkys. All this comes down to their doorstep, it is their BABY. But some on here need to look in the mirror. Moaning about everything. Berg out they cried, well now he's out, you got what you wanted and now your moaning because of who they brought in again, already. If venkys have to keep on paying up three year contracts, thats taking out money that could have been spent on players and coaching staff. What reasonable manager would come and work where he gets sacked after 57 days without making one signing? Keep up your moaning, soon we will have the quality watch seller from Delhi 7 day market. Kept on saying on here when you wanted Kean out, be careful what you wish for, said the same about Berg, now look where we are. And then to come on here all innocent like saying, it was him mister, it was him that dun it. Pathetic. If you keep kicking a hornets nest, prepare to get stung and you have been. But what do you monkeys do? thats right, you keep kicking it, WELL HELLO.

Yes everyone needs to read the Independents version of the shambles at Ewood - sums everything up for what its worth - absolute farce.
The lying so and so Hendry will have an hand in picking the team for Saturday which in itself is an absolute slap in the face to most 'honest people' - Shaw Agnew summoned to India lets hope they get a real bad dose of 'deli belly' and fired!!!!
And as for the bloody stupid SHABBY SHAGGY SINGH well he continues to knit the web of disaster around the club with the full support of the idiotic owners in India!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone should certainly stay away from Ewood and show these morons that we are well and truly 'pi--ed off' with their circus antics - they havent got a clue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHABBY SHAGGY SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY ASHAMED OF THE DAMAGE HE HAS DONE TO THE CLUB - JUST WISH HE WOULD DISAPPEAR OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH - OUT WITH THE BLOODY LOT OF THEM.

Everyone should certainly stay away from Ewood and show these morons that we are well and truly 'pi--ed off' with their circus antics - they havent got a clue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHABBY SHAGGY SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY ASHAMED OF THE DAMAGE HE HAS DONE TO THE CLUB - JUST WISH HE WOULD DISAPPEAR OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH - OUT WITH THE BLOODY LOT OF THEM. dangerous dave

LET. Ditch the childish account names and start giving real names and addresses in good old letter to the paper style. That way the trollers and abusers will die away and we might have a website worth reading instead of this dross.
Great idea - except those who post moronic stuff would make up a name and address. I find it easier to skim over Burnley posts as they are the same handful and contain the same phrases easily recognisable at a glance, nothing new to say, just hysterical insanity.

Rubbish, I'm sat here, drinkinkg tea ot of my sutton and shearer cup.

Enough is enough! We were asked to have patience and give the Venky's time. Well we have and look at where we are;

Relegated, manager less, failed Bollywood star on the coaching staff, in free fall etc etc etc

I have supported Rovers all my life but I swear that I will not set foot in the ground again whilst the Venkys are associated with the club.

To that end, I hope that we lose every game we play, the attendances drop further than they have ever dropped and that at some point the Venky's decide to cut their losses and go. At that point, and regardless of where we are in any league, I will be back.

2. Whatever mixed reasons they started with, they have failed and they are cutting their losses.
3. They are going to employ a cheapo, probably by a cut and paste job of new coaches and promotions from within, eg Ali, McD, Nuno, Murphy.
4. The Ali stunt is appallng, playing to an Indian audience and a few uninformed liberals who might give them credit for apppointing a Brit/Asian
5. Shabby is getting £400,000 and is holding the fort for Venkys, lapping up the attention to boost his career back in Asia s a pundit. Anyone who is still taken in by his clowning probably hasn't been furhter than Accrington or Chorley in their lives.
6, Of course there will be a list of failures, unemployed, Brown being the latest, whom are queueing up for any job and it suits Venkys and Shabby to keep th plot reunning.

The point that I'm making is that the Venkys have had time. OK, people have been p1ssed and have protested, rightly so, but in my opinion the protests don't work.

You either accept what is happening at the club, or you don't and stay away until one day things change.

I think that over the last few years Rovers fans have had to put up with a lot and I'm calling it a day until we get our club back. I admire those with more staying power that are willing to carry on into round 187. I can't sit there and witness more of the heart and soul being ripped out of the club I love any more!!

You have done well to put up with the pantomime, and that's all it is, for over two years whilst Venkys play their little game of football club owners.

They've more than halved the crowds already with much worse to come, in my opinion.

I've said for many months that they're not here for footballing reasons and I think that is becoming obvious to all now.

They must have been laughing at us (the fans )for the last two years, whilst they have played their little con game.

Does anyone expect a proper manager and coaching team ?

Sad but true Noddy.

It has always been about business for them.

The advice they got from JA at the start was essentially " listen to us, we can make you famous and successful , and make money as an incubator for young talent." The fallback position was always the knowledge that the assets on the pitch were always worth more than what they paid for the club.

Plan A clearly failed, unfortunately it failed so badly that Kean managed to burn most of Plan B in the process.

What we are seeing now are the last desperate attempts of Venkys and their latest advisor, the self publicist, SS, to try to salvage something from the wreckage, even if its turning BRFC into a global publicity stunt while the parachute payments last. As this is the blind leading the blind, then they will be led astray again by all kinds of chancers.

I just hope Bristol City haven't made any plans for their share of the 3rd round Cup match revenue.

There are only two paths back to sanity: (a) a buyer emerges (Venkys are known to want to sell ASAP) or (b) they fade away as shareholders only and appoint a proper Chairman, CEO and CFO to head up a quality management team.

Until then we can only expect more embarrassing chaos.

I just hope the rumour Shaw & Agnew are flying out to Pune is tell Venkys in simple tems that Singh is the problem and thatb until he goes no self respecting Football person will have anything to do with Blackburn Rovers.

It was a Circus last time they appoimted a Manager - this time it seems like a Pantomine has hit town

Think what you like about the Supporters but eventhose who despise Rovers so much could not have dreamt up these story lines.

Only a letter from the Telegraph supported with the names and addresses of fans and their season ticket number can hopefully infliuence Venkys to either sell up or get someone other than Singh a Malayasian PR Man who has no knowledge of the Championship and a dismal track record in decision making already

Glen Mullan is right it will take a lot more than £3 Million to dig Rovers out of this hole - maybe Administration is the only option to take the club forward by starting again.

Heres to a Happy Prosperous New Year at Ewood (one can still dream)

Only a letter from the Telegraph supported with the names and addresses of fans and their season ticket number can hopefully infliuence Venkys to either sell up or get someone other than Singh a Malayasian PR Man who has no knowledge of the Championship and a dismal track record in decision making already Glen Mullan is right it will take a lot more than £3 Million to dig Rovers out of this hole - maybe Administration is the only option to take the club forward by starting again. Heres to a Happy Prosperous New Year at Ewood (one can still dream) stick to football

As an outsider looking in for quite a while I find it amazing how far this has gone.

For one, I can not see any investment in the club from the Venky's, any money spent has come from player sales and from the FA.

Also to rip the management infrastructure out of a club and replacing it with the present incumbent is like replacing a solid RSJ with a jelly. The walls inevitably will come tumbling down.

Employing the cheapest option is not the best option. If the Venkys were serious about promotion, then they would have replaced Kean many months ago and allowed the new manager to build his team with his own philosophy and not be expected to play some non entity signed on the off chance they could be worth something in the future.

As for Hendry, how he has managed to avoid the cull astounds me. Totally ineffective!!

I really hope that Blackburn Rovers can get out of this mess, but with the like of Venky's, Shebby and Hendry still there, I'm afraid the future looks bleak.

I wish all BRFC fans all the best and hope that the club hits bottom sooner rather than later otherwise there could be no bouncing back from oblivion.

That's right folks, we are in no rush for a new manager!

They sack Berg just before the Jan transfer window and will probably spend 4 weeks trawling through a list of desperate wannabes, pick the worst possible candidate (of course) who'll be lumbered with Keans (just typing that name makes me ill) team of overpaid, unmotivated has beens and powder puffs.

There's no hurry because each week without a manager is a week's wages saved - it's a simple and as bad as that. No signings during the window, sell some players - Rhodes, Martin Olly, Dann, Givet back to France - then check what's left in the kitty, then bankruptcy.
I've heard that Pep G has just flown in from his sabbatical in NY to be "guest coach" this weekend.

It is a sad state of affairs. As well as the obvious issue with the owners and management, the fans are at each others throats. Reading on here how irate we all become with each other just because of those disgraceful idiots running our football club, makes me wonder how the damage will ever be repaired. If we were all in a room together do you reckon we would come to blows because the tone of some of the comments on here sound that way and only cyber space is preventing it. It's one thing Venkys and their staff have achieved - fan in-fighting. Surely we can use our strong feelings in a constructive way to get these folk out? We might as well have aliens running our club they are so far removed from Blackburn Rovers and it's fanbase

Think what you like about the Supporters but eventhose who despise Rovers so much could not have dreamt up these story lines.

Only a letter from the Telegraph supported with the names and addresses of fans and their season ticket number can hopefully infliuence Venkys to either sell up or get someone other than Singh a Malayasian PR Man who has no knowledge of the Championship and a dismal track record in decision making already

Glen Mullan is right it will take a lot more than £3 Million to dig Rovers out of this hole - maybe Administration is the only option to take the club forward by starting again.

Heres to a Happy Prosperous New Year at Ewood (one can still dream)
there is not a chance that Venkys will consider selling the club.......heck it took lamost three years for the WT to sell the club and we were a prem club and a decent proposition then. Now the club is falling through the Chumpionship and resembles a badly run small town circus. They are stuck with the club and we are stuck with them. Wish they had stuck with Berg.

If there is even a grain of truth in today’s stories, then Venky’s are completely out of their minds. I’ll bet every club in the championship wishes they were playing us this weekend.

I do not see any way back for us now. If this MacDonald/comical Ali coaching combination happens, to the exclusion of a manager, it is going to be all-out war on Venky’s and Singh – and I can see administration looming by the end of the season.

I didnt realise the bookies decided who gets to be manager.

Only an official statement is an "in the running" statement of intent,

Notice how the media use such vague language as ".. understands that" and "sources suggest.." etc.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - if Andy hasn't confirmed its an official statement, I'd take all these rumours with a pinch of salt. There has been absolutely no official suggestions at all that any of these people are lined up for the managers job, just like the Redknapp and OGS rumours before them.

Why everyone is getting caught up in the media frenzy to demean us more than we already have been, is beyond me. Next there will be talk of more boycotts by the doom mongers and the same media will start calling us the worst fans again for reacting to the cr@p they print.

I and I am sure most fans have reached the end of the tether with the Venkys. Why can they not just go away for good. I think the club is now in great danger than at any time in its history of going out of business; no organisation, however prosperous can survive this onslaught of incompetence. The Indians have not got a clue and should be utterly ashamed of themselves. On a general note this does nothing for Anglo-Asian relations and has done much harm; it must be doing a lot of damage to companies wishing to invest in the Asian market and vice-versa.

I have done some homework on Judan Ali via a freind of mine who coaches youth players in the Enfield area. He is an ex Arsenal youth player who has apparantly played some lower league football in Spain at Murcia and has been doing youth coaching in the Dagenham area he has had virtually no experience coaching above youth level. That coaching has also only been at local level, he has coached in India at youth level for a short period and has appeared in a film.
My freind couldnt take it in he said if Rovers wanted a good Asian coach then why not look at Nas Bashir who has coached at Wycombe and Reading were he had great reports from Messrs Coppull,Pardew and Rodgers. He also played alot of higher standard non league football and is currently doing a good job at Hayes and Yeading. He cannot comprehend Rovers even approaching Jadan Ali he simply hasnt coached adults and only youth coached at local level.
I ask anyone at Ewood to please think again this could well end in tears, pick a hungry young manager who is currently employed. This circus must end now and a new fresh management team be put in place. Mr Singh MUST stay out of the footballing side and the new management be given time to rebuild.
I do not think Venkys have a plan B and am growing more and more concerned we are in freefall and appear to have Capt Pugwash at the ships wheel.

However, it's gone far enough. I've been supporting BFC for 50yrs and more, and I genuinely feel for the true Blackburn supporters who have had their club stolen from them by foreigners who don't know their corner flags from their centre spots. It's a real tragedy that a traditional club, like mine, can be shafted by the likes of these idiots. So, whilst enjoying your discomfort, after all the posturing and insults we've endured over the years of Jack's millions, I feel for the real supporters who have lost their club to the morons.
We were disparaging of the way Jack bought the Premiership, but at least he was a genuine, local fan, who chose to spend his money on his beloved club. Would that there were more like him today.
I hope you find a way out of this mess and look forward to many more derbies, but please, apply a note of realism - your prospects are now no greater than ours. I truly hope you are able to find a way to give the club back to the fans, who are the bedrock of any football club. Owners come and go, but we are the only constant.

The reports linking Comical Ali with the club, if true and if he is actually given a job, will be the final nail in the coffin for many a fans support. The Venkys are close to alienating many fans for good, until they sell up. They are clearly completely clueless and still not prepared to employ professionals to run the club, if you allow amateurs like Shabby Minge to run the club you are destined to become amateur.

Well this evening we see Singh backpeddling and Ali was only a guest, never s serious contender for a coaching role, so what brought about this change of heart? The dailies. Each of the national daily papers got hold of this and had a field day, if anyone hadn't looked at The Mail on line with their Ali videos and the answer from the FA when they enquired about Ali's coaching qualifications then you have missed a treat. The nationals all carry and blame one name (or brand), Venkys.
Venkys bought Rovers to penetrate the European markets for their chicken products hence the drive to play in a Europe wide champions league. In business the most risky strategy other than new product in a new market is same product in a new market, in this case Venkys chicken products in the new market of Europe. So rather than open venkys chicken shops across Europe and hope like hell people buy your products you look to establish brand recognition by generating some free publicity by buying a football club, run it well and then through the process of brand association (people assume that if you run your club well then you will do the same with your.chicken shops and products and you buy their products). But that is where it has gone rather wrong for dear Venkys. A very sophisticated PR campaign diverted flack away from the Venkys brand and onto the supporters in the Kean out period but no matter what they do no PR campaign can deflect what Singh has done this time. The nationals are widely read across Europe so to the person who posted can we do any more, just leave Singh to carry on.

It should frighten most teams how quickly a well run and respected club can be destroyed by these foreign influences.

Had it not been for the trust looking to sell, it could have happened to any of the clubs. Had Burnley been in the premiership, it could have quite easily been you - and could still happen. This isnt about rivalries against neighbouring clubs, its about the systematic destruction of British clubs by foreign owners who have no idea how to run them. We aren't the first, and sadly we won't be the last until the FA and bodies get their fingers out.

It's a real tragedy that a traditional club, like mine, can be shafted by the likes of these idiots. So, whilst enjoying your discomfort, after all the posturing and insults we've endured over the years of Jack's millions, I feel for the real supporters who have lost their club to the morons. We were disparaging of the way Jack bought the Premiership, but at least he was a genuine, local fan, who chose to spend his money on his beloved club. Would that there were more like him today. I hope you find a way out of this mess and look forward to many more derbies, but please, apply a note of realism - your prospects are now no greater than ours. I truly hope you are able to find a way to give the club back to the fans, who are the bedrock of any football club. Owners come and go, but we are the only constant. You must feel gutted that your club is no longer yours. Good luck for the future, but forgive my moment of schadenfreude! (Enjoying others misfortunes).[/p][/quote]It should frighten most teams how quickly a well run and respected club can be destroyed by these foreign influences. Had it not been for the trust looking to sell, it could have happened to any of the clubs. Had Burnley been in the premiership, it could have quite easily been you - and could still happen. This isnt about rivalries against neighbouring clubs, its about the systematic destruction of British clubs by foreign owners who have no idea how to run them. We aren't the first, and sadly we won't be the last until the FA and bodies get their fingers out. blueblooded

I didnt realise the bookies decided who gets to be manager.

Only an official statement is an "in the running" statement of intent,

Notice how the media use such vague language as ".. understands that" and "sources suggest.." etc.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - if Andy hasn't confirmed its an official statement, I'd take all these rumours with a pinch of salt. There has been absolutely no official suggestions at all that any of these people are lined up for the managers job, just like the Redknapp and OGS rumours before them.

Why everyone is getting caught up in the media frenzy to demean us more than we already have been, is beyond me. Next there will be talk of more boycotts by the doom mongers and the same media will start calling us the worst fans again for reacting to the cr@p they print.
Yep, you must be right as Andys always the first man to know these things
Bit like the billy McKinley thing when her berg got the job, and of course, when the boro game finished certain individuals knew berg had gone that evening, er did I miss Andys breaking news
Comment above was meant for this one. Sorry.

But just to add to that, Andy has apologised before when he's got it wrong which hasn't been very often.

Are you serious with your &quot;this does nothing for Anglo-Asian relations" comment?

I think you will find that most businesses are not that shallow. In the big scheme of things who do you actually think BRFC are?

Go and give yourself an upper cut.
I think I may have hit a nerve however no excuse for your response "Go and give your self an upper cut"; it is rather offensive.

There are quite a few with experience of managing in championship or prem and already had taste of getting teams promoted.

Simon Grayson
Owen Coyle
Roy Keane
Billy Davies
Allan Curbishley
Gareth Southgate
Dalgliesh
Sean O Driscoll
If being ex Burnley is not a problem, you can add Steve Cotterill to your list. He put the squad in place at Turf Moor for Coyle, and he was very unlucky at Forest, where he fell the victim of new owners, having saved the club from relegation. He also did a great job at Notts County, leading the club to promotion. Portsmouth was a difficult club for any manager given the club's financial plight.

Only Curbishley is the right man for the job in my opinion, going off his experience and track record. But I am pretty sure he would not touch the job anyway, best we can hope for now, is for a good upcoming manager, who is prepared to put his reputation on the line to take the job.

Trouble is, goldfinger, we have just had two of those and look where that has got us ! As for Curbs, he's been to inactive for too long to get my vote and would hardly be deemed progressive. The point is though, where the hell do we go now and who the hell would want to come to us. I have been worried several times before, but things just seem to get worse and worse. Where will this end. These parasites should not be allowed any involvement with a football club whatsoever

Mark Fish has a right to his opinion on the HB sacking which happens to be inline with most Rovers fans on the LT poll which currently runs at approx - 66% said the sacking was right and 34% wrong. And for the record - I voted that I thought it was wrong. I also think that BRAG should distance themselves from SS and have made a mistake in moving into Ewood - but to blame everything that has happened at Ewood over the last 2 years on BRAG and Glen Mullen inparticular whilst never even mentioning Venkys at all is just complete and utter madness.
You keep your friends close but your enemies closer still.
