Comment: Berg sacking highlights the mess at Ewood

Lancashire Telegraph: Henning Berg . . . still a Rovers legend Henning Berg . . . still a Rovers legend

THE inquest starts now. Henning Berg arrived as Blackburn Rovers manager as a club legend and he leaves as a club legend.

The last 10 games should not change his standing at this once proud club.

What his sacking does do though is again highlight what a mess the Ewood Park outfit has become.

Farcical, clueless and a laughing stock are just three words that can be used to sum up Venky’s disastrous two year reign.

The sacking of Steve Kean was Venky’s second chance and they completely blew it. They went against what the fans wanted by taking the huge gamble of appointing the inexperienced Berg (pictured left) and it has failed.

Who was responsible for the decision?

That has to be the question the owners are asking now because they need people they can rely on to make the football decisions at Rovers, something they clearly haven’t got.

It was pretty obvious to us all that chicken farmers from India would have no clue how to effectively run a football club. Why would they? What they needed was people in power to rely on.

They need the exact thing that was in place before they took charge, but we have known that almost ever since Messrs John Williams and co were forced out.

The disastrous appointment of Berg will cost Rovers financially and we are talking about a football club that is already in the mire in that regards.

The club is already staring at a circa £25million loss after relegation from the Premier League and now they need to pay off three coaches and a manager.

A new manager won’t come cheap either – not if they want the right man – and he will surely want cash for January to rebuild the squad.

I hope the Raos have deep pockets.

That was why they could not afford to get the last managerial appointment wrong. We knew it, they knew it and yet they still opted to gamble on the likeable Berg.

Maybe Berg would have succeeded at the Rovers he used to know. He knew what he was talking about and had the respect of most around the club.

The problem is this club is not the one he used to know, it is not the one any of us used to know. It is a shambles from top to bottom, with a working environment that would make any manager’s life difficult.

Many fans have had enough of Venky’s, they have done for a long time now and, following bad decision after bad decision, you can’t blame them.

The problem is who would buy this club at the moment? The club is pretty much worthless when you consider the current financial situation.

I don’t want to be the voice of doom but it is very hard to see a way out. In a ‘dreamworld’ a rich white knight would ride into Rovers and save us all from the clutches of Venky’s.

The thing is that ‘dreamworld’ does not seem to exist.

We are relying on Venky’s salvaging this situation and, after the last two years, why should anyone trust them to start doing things the right way?

The LT has been silent all day while other bits of the media have been printing quotes from Singh etc. I sympathise with you Andy Cryer. It is impossible to write anything which is both true and hopeful. We face the same fate as Portsmouth but sooner. It's unjust as far the club supporters are concerned but we have to face the fact that the owners are incompetent and indifferent. The club will be lucky to stay in the football league.

Are you thick or something? What has Keans resignation got to do with the way Venkys run the club? You lot are the biggest hypocrites. Making constant jokes about Kean, about his inability as a manager and hoping he would continue in his losing way and then all of a sudden you are defending him. What a confusion it all must be to you trying to keep up with your rival club instead of your own.

What's happening at Blackburn Rovers has absolutely nothing to do with the fans, it's poor ownership, plain and simple. Also, we didn't sack Steve Kean, he used Shebby Singh's interfering as an excuse to resign - whilst playing the martyr again - and still get a bumper payout that he didn't earn.

If I was bothered enough to take time to write about Burnley football club I would certainly have something more profound than this. You lot cant even get the story right. You dont have any understanding of the sequence of events. You make it up as you go along. Wanting Kean sacked (and he actually resigned because of Shebby not the fans and thats why he has been paid a settlement) has no bearing on Venkys negligent ownership. You know Kean was a joke of a manager, youve said it over and over on here so dont come on now suggesting he deserved to keep his job. You lot would have been having a blue fit had he got the job at your club. Give it a rest until you have something meaningful to say.

Singh said: ‘We don’t want anyone to be frightened or worried about coming here. The objective is to build a team but it’s not like going to a supermarket and picking a manager off the shelf.

‘They don’t have to worry, I’m not going to be the manager, I wouldn’t insult other managers or coaches. I am in a supportive role. I’m not here to breathe down the new manager’s neck, I’ll be his biggest supporter.

‘The new manager must understand he will not have two or three seasons to build the club — he will be under pressure straight away.

‘If he doesn’t get it right we will have a chat about things. He doesn’t have to worry about losing three games in a row at the start — because he’s new we will give him a few more.’

Singh said: ‘When there is a change in ownership there are expectations and only time will allow my bosses to be spoken of in the same breath as Sir Jack. That is the owners’ ambition and, if we can surpass it eventually, that would be something.

‘Managers want to be remembered like Sir Matt Busby or Bill Shankly, owners want to leave a legacy for the supporters and the town.

‘We hope we can stand alongside him. We already have a stand in Ronnie Clayton’s name. If we get promoted, it will be too soon to think of naming “The Shebby Stand”.’

What a clown. If any manager had been interested in the role, they would have changed their mind after reading that idiots comments.

To get back to the main article: Cryer is a prophet of doom and he's right. As for all the stuff coming from the Burnley direction, I have supported Rovers for over 60 years but it's clear that at the present time they are a better-run club than Blackburn for the simple reason that almost every club in the world is better run. Venky's are the Manchurian Candidates of the football world put on earth to confound and humiliate Blackburn.

You are a shining example of a typical destructive and negative Blackburn Rovers "supporter". Your username is even designed to be an insult to Burnley supporters, although for some reason you've added a further insult to Yorkshire. Concentrate on supporting Rovers (if that's who you actually support) instead of showing yourself up.

Happy new year
Great expectations at BRFC
weve hopefully turned the corner
1 or 2 signings and a manager and we should be gunning for the upper echelons of the league.

Great signings KIng and Best 2013
king is fast, young and energetic
Best should be just that too.

I believe we fans should do everything possible especially in difficult times to bring the fans & BRFC together.
We need to be stronger, we need to show the world we can come together in times of need and this period is that occasion.
I believe in BRFC and Blackburn and would ask every fan and resident of the Lancashire area to get together and be positive. We shall not be allowed to be dragged to the bottom of everything.
We are a proud people of Lancashire a proud club and we should raise ourselves to where we belong to the upper echelons of English society and the the premiership again one day soon.

to the football......!!
I think we should raid clubs who are thinking of bringing in new players themselves.

e.g. QPR as it seems are a club waiting to make changes to their staff hence a good time to get some of their players.
I can think of some at QPR who could fit the bill.
what about the hard man at QPR
perfect for our feeble weak team
and hes a leader...!!

what do you guys think..?
Givet is going in January.
Robinson can go..!
get rid of Dunn, Pedrs, Etuhu, Orr
basically all over 30 can go

& PLZ dont buy any over age 30 again.

Playing age is 20 - 30 max
as we all know old age creeps in and we cant keep up with the modern playing expectations of football.

A Defenders needed and a midfield general.

Ok, I think we should make recomendations to BRFC as we're football fans and we see or hear of players doing well. I'm sure we know a player or two out there in the Football league who in their opinion good be a good player for BRFC.

Lets start pointing out the players in the lower leagues who could be good signings for Rovers.
Tony McMahon Shfld utd
Andrew Haliday Midbrgh

if we need a good young defender who is tough and has ability then maybe you should consider Tony McMahon who is at Sheffield utd but ex Middbrg.

I think we should go for him
hes a full back, strong, tough and has scored goals

Andrew haliday
tough strong and young


take a look and let us all know”
