FULL TIME: Barnsley 1 Blackburn Rovers 3

MANAGERLESS Blackburn Rovers finally gave their supporters something to smile about with a determined 3-1 victory at Barnsley.

Caretaker boss Gary Bowyer, helped by Terry McPhillips, got his side to produce a disciplined display as they comfortably saw off a poor Barnsley side.

First half goals from Josh King and Ruben Rochina and a late strike from Jordan Rhodes were enough to give Rovers just their second win in 11 matches to halt their slide down the Championship.

The result was rarely in doubt from the moment King raced clear on 29 minutes to fire Rovers ahead, with Rochina doubling the lead just before half time.

Substitute Colin Kazim-Richards, Jordan Rhodes and Rochina all went close to making the lead even more convincing as Barnsley looked like tamely surrendering.

The hosts were given hope on 76 though as Stephen Dawson stepped forward to rifle a shot into the top corner to give Rovers a nervy finale.

Substitute Nuno Gomes should have made the game safe in injury time but somehow shot wide from close range with the net gaping, after good work from Kazim-Richards.

Rhodes did make sure though in the dying seconds as he slotted home from 10 yards.

Never mind about Venkys and Shabby Singh, whatever Mr Bowyer and his colleagues have done,they have got a result, so lets get behind them and the players because they are only ones who can turn it around.

While everything you say is true, telling people not to be pessimistic when things are so dire at the club is slightly trivialising things I'd say.

To be fair most people have been calling for Rochina and Vukecvic to be playing- Shabby is picking the better players - a shame they had to go off - we then lost that edge, dropped deeper or it gave the opposition some confidence and we conceded!

Bowyer for Manager! after all it's most of his youth set up that's playing, and with the talent he's sent through in the past few years he must do something right.
sorry Canadian darwener......but it would be a mistake to put Bowers as full time manager..... assistant may be.....but we need some one with experience, who has the respect from the players, who will put the players in their place and who has the pulling power to attract new players.....a great win by the lads and you cant take that away from them...but the laws of averages says we were going to win one game....your thinking is in line with some chicken farmers i know
I don't know, the only experienced managers we are going to attract will be losers as winning managers don't stay out of work. So when you say experienced you mean a loser who is out of work?
Bowyer had a better balanced side out in one game than weve had all season. If he keeps putting round pegs in round holes, which is all we were asking for, then why not, instead of playing lowe at right back and no-one on the right side of midfield and all Rovers attacks coming down a one sided left hand side which is too easy to defend against. Lets see what happens.

Yes, we beat a bottom of the league in a week where if we were beaten 10-0 by the bottom of the league team, no-one would have been surprised seeing that Bowyer and co. had 24 hrs to prepare and the team must be in as much chaos as the circus off the field.

Well done lads, Rochina was sublime, King and Rhodes deserve credit, as do the rest of the team and the caretakers for pulling together and getting the win.

A special mention to the away fans today, you were amazing. Still smiling, we needed this, the fans deserved this.

Hope this is a good omen for things to come. Judan Ali has backed out of the coaching job I read, hope the madness stops.

just listened to minge on 606 and he is full of the stuff that comes out of everybody's backsides - he answered not one single question.

on the subject of what is his role as "global adviser" - his response was to fight the enemies within the club and outside the club, and to get the club on an even keel after the mess that rovers were in.

he is incapable of answering a question - incompetent in the extreme. he is thick beyond belief. how on earth can this club be taken seriously when you hear this bloke talk......no decent manager would ever come to this club whilst these idiots are in charge.....those of you that believe the likes of sparky will come back are, quite frankly, living in cloud cuckoo land (would you want him to introduce kia joorabchim to rovers anyhow? - he can make JA look like mother theresa).

some lad asks how long will it take to get the new manager in - all he says is 2012 has been a bad year. another bloke says we meed to get it right - - shebby reassures everybody that he will "definitely get it right" arse and elbow spring to mind.

great win today - but at the club the chaos continues - shabby is just full of soundbites. gross tumescent udder. a cancer within my and your club.

the heart has been ripped out of our club - now the shebby is snuffing out our soul. there is nothing left.

Please get a manager who will take the club forward the likes of Pat Fenlon,Mark Robbins or Phil Parkinson and some decent administrators and clear out the dead wood. I now really fear for the club after listening to Mr.Singh.

ce doesn't always mean successful, but it does mean he has alot of miles under his belt
I think I would sooner get a manager in who is on the way up, but has lots of experience, someone like Simon Grayson who's budget is zilch yet he has a good track record. Because someone like di mateo who has an excellent record would not come as he wants a bigger job. And someone like hughes would do likewise. So for me it would be someone like Grayson, Di Canio, Lee Clark, or even him who just left Forrest. If someone like Phil Brown came in he would spens all day on the sun lounger. Christ I'd even take Roy Keane to kick some arse. That'd be good to watch, Shebby trying to tell Roy Keane what to do. I'd pay for a ticket to that meeting.

So when you say experienced you mean a loser who is out of work? Bowyer had a better balanced side out in one game than weve had all season. If he keeps putting round pegs in round holes, which is all we were asking for, then why not, instead of playing lowe at right back and no-one on the right side of midfield and all Rovers attacks coming down a one sided left hand side which is too easy to defend against.

Just listened to Shebby on 606.He talked a lot and said nothing. Very vague about the new manager he said they were looking for a coach rather than a manager and then when challenged by everyone that it was important to get an experienced manager he sort of agreed.But reading between the lines no way does he want an experienced manager telling him what he wants and how to do things at the club. He wants to rule and therefore we can forget a top manager. This man should be removed immediately as he finds himself in a postion of power that he is not qualified to hold. Left to his own devices he will destroy the club and very quickly too.

Spot on. Negative comments from "supporters" have become very tiresome.
What can you say about the " Positives " of the last two years ? Only a Question.
Positives I don't live there and have to suffer. Just stating facts that rovers fans abusing employees is disgusting, this club will not exist soon thanks to the Walkers. I detest the chicken farmers as much as you do, but abusing SA, SK, EB, HB, and can bet the next manager will endure the same abuse off some morons on this site.
Sorry, I never abused SA EB or HB but Kean deserved everything he got. He took the club down for his own greed knowing full well he wasn't capable of doing the job, but he wouldn't do the honourable thing and resign.

Most fans agree Berg should never have been given the job in the first place, as he wasn't qualified to take on the monumental task of trying to follow the mess that Kean had left.

Given the fact that he was given the job, most fans thought he wasn't given enough time to turn things round.

Eric Black did a reasonable job in the few games he was in charge and most fans could see that.

I think that living half way round the world , if you do, you're not in a position to criticise Rovers fans who have watched the shambolic management of the club at first hand.

Anyone who has been 'abused 'as you call it, has deserved it.

Agreed that taking the mick of a player injured is poor form.
As far as I'm aware, Austin walked off and was not taken away in a body bag as I wrote on the dingle pages. Okay, I admit it was poor form, but f*em, I've had enough of the scumsters on these pages and its payback time.

Bang on JPainter90 - that was a decent display by OUR team today.

Bowyer was immense on the touchline giving solid directions. You can only beat what is in front of you and we did that handsomely today considering the blithe that as supposedly descended on our club. Bowyer showed today that he can transcend that in 48 ours. Priceless.

I won't get carried away, but I will enjoy the day as we should after a win. Take that into the next game on the terraces and we are laughing. 1500 supporters today, and I always comment on the away support - were in full voice for every situation that our club finds itself in. Cracking.

If Bowyer can motivate and find the winning mentality then what is the problem ? I would like to see him given the opportunity should no manager of repute be lined up as I feel we have nothing to lose ? Against the better teams I would be intrigued to see if he could pull it off ? As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ?

Great post pal.

Not been able to get on line until now, before the game my heart wanted Rovers to win but my brain, for the first time ever wanted them to loose, because of Venky's, thank God my heart won.

This win could be priceless, but only if it is backed up by a home win against Forest, who are a far better team than Barnsley, but you never know.

So for that game at least lets remember what Blackburn Rovers are and get behind them 100%, forget the Venky's and Shebby the clown for 90 precious minutes.

All that matters are the 11 guys on the Ewood pitch in the blue and white for that 90 minutes.

I would like to see him given the opportunity should no manager of repute be lined up as I feel we have nothing to lose ? Against the better teams I would be intrigued to see if he could pull it off ? As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ?

Great post pal.

Hi woody...sounds like a good day out was had by all - deservedly so after all the rubbish we had this week. Glad to see Bowyer doing a decent job today but still bet this win was for Berg. He was getting the job done albeit too slowly but that's now history and the story of our club continues without him. I think the fans reaction scared Shebby from appointing Ali in some position butMcDonald is still on the cards it seems. And will we ever hear from Agnew again? The soap opera aka BRFC continues while we await the latest cast changes. Allez les Bleus!

BTW I think Baldy was just being sarcastic with his comment about Bowyer Out - I understand what he means well enough and am surprised the regular gloom and doom merchants are not calling for his head yet too...

I would love to agree with you HSB, but truth be told there are far too many on here who enjoy the negatives and ignore any positives if they have to do with the management.

Shebby on 606 said lot of nothing but at least he shows his face and meets his critics head on. People want answers, he cant give answers he doesnt have. All Ive heard up to now is how bad he was, how about mentioning the fact that he refuted any interference in team selections, that he had no plans to employ Judan Ali and admitted his choice of McDonald as coach?

Seems like the only things people want to concentrate on is how bad he sounded on the radio. I personally thought his calling anyone who listened to those stupid rag rumours to be stupid was ballsy and wholly accurate.

It seems people have a very short memory that only a short few months ago people were pleading for him to get rid of Kean - which despite Keans resignation we all know what and who the catalyst was in making it happen.

Yes, he got the Berg appointment wrong, he admitted as much, but there were just as many people on here calling for his resignation - myself included - and what happens when he's sacked? the same people have nothing better to say than point out that Berg should have never been employed in the first place!

I'll take any balanced argument and opinion as long as its based fairly, but it seems that management bashing seems to be the only thing some people on here want to do.

We won today - not that many people seem to have noticed. Having a conversation with a fellow traveller to the game earlier when we were discussing the comments online and he pointed out that the majority of those commenting couldn't have even been to the game today, judging from the timing of comments and I had cause to reflect that only those who were there today would have understood how significant this win was compared to Singhs insignificant interview. Yet all anyone seems to be discussing is the interview. Funny that isn't it?

Tonight, I should be floating on air from the win, but after reading comments online, here and other social media sites, my heart is heavy. With regret I have to admit to myself that if it wasn't for my love for my beloved Rovers, I would not want to be associated with those who thought boycotting and then sitting online slagging off everything and everyone involved in the Venkys management.

My team played its heart out today. My fellow fans sang their hearts out - as they always have. Its a pity that it just isn't enough for some.

Three points if I may -

1 - superb game today , Well done all .
I was a little worried when The Tykes got one back . Anyway , I didn't quite understand what happened when Josh King scored - then a minute later , he was fouled by McNulty - we get a free kick - then a minute later King gets a yellow card for dissent . What was that about ? - I was listening in t'radio but keeping my eyes on the road was more important!! Very grateful for responses .

2 - this is from a mate , who is a strong Tory (and Rovers supporter) .
So don't shout at me !!
"How could anyone expect Berg to wave a magic wand and sort out the **** - that is like expecting Cameron to sort out the **** Labour left , in a coupla months" . Interesting point .

3 - this is from another mate (my, did we all have a chat in t'pub!!) . He suggests the boundaries of Lancashire are redrawn so that Burnley becomes part of Yorkshire .
I daren't really give his reasons as they are somewhat offensive (to chimpanzees) .

Sorry to go on .

It was good to see Bergs work coming to the fore today and a very welcome 3 points,certain players should hang their heads in shame that they waited till now to give 100% though. I really hope that Berg will come out and say what went on between him and shabby that resulted in him being axed,but it'll be the same 'gagging' clause that's worked on all the others who have been forced out of the club over the last 2 years i guess. Talking of which ; Two months or so ago ,we finally got rid of a truly brainless, clueless meglomaniac who wanted to play at being a football manager, ( who would still be here if he hadn't been advised that there was a final payday to be had by resigning) but just succeeded in dragging us down a league whilst replacing what was a mid table premiership squad with second rate cheapo's, Unortunately ,as if that wasn't enough torture for all Rovers fans, he has been replaced by a brainless,clueless,t
hird rate ex Kuala Lumpar , meglamaniac with no clue about English football,and who would never sanction the experienced manager that we all know we need to stop the rot as he knows they wouldn't go along with his amateur interference. The blame though lies 100% with a certain arrogent,senseless sacred cow from Pune who we can be reasonably sure will strip and abandon our once proud and respected Club if we havent gained promotion by the time the parachute payments fail to line her grubby purse.... R.T.I.D. Since 1969

Talking of which ; Two months or so ago ,we finally got rid of a truly brainless, clueless meglomaniac who wanted to play at being a football manager, ( who would still be here if he hadn't been advised that there was a final payday to be had by resigning) but just succeeded in dragging us down a league whilst replacing what was a mid table premiership squad with second rate cheapo's, Unortunately ,as if that wasn't enough torture for all Rovers fans, he has been replaced by a brainless,clueless,t hird rate ex Kuala Lumpar , meglamaniac with no clue about English football,and who would never sanction the experienced manager that we all know we need to stop the rot as he knows they wouldn't go along with his amateur interference. The blame though lies 100% with a certain arrogent,senseless sacred cow from Pune who we can be reasonably sure will strip and abandon our once proud and respected Club if we havent gained promotion by the time the parachute payments fail to line her grubby purse....

Shebby on 606 said lot of nothing but at least he shows his face and meets his critics head on. People want answers, he cant give answers he doesnt have. All Ive heard up to now is how bad he was, how about mentioning the fact that he refuted any interference in team selections, that he had no plans to employ Judan Ali and admitted his choice of McDonald as coach?

Seems like the only things people want to concentrate on is how bad he sounded on the radio. I personally thought his calling anyone who listened to those stupid rag rumours to be stupid was ballsy and wholly accurate.

It seems people have a very short memory that only a short few months ago people were pleading for him to get rid of Kean - which despite Keans resignation we all know what and who the catalyst was in making it happen.

Yes, he got the Berg appointment wrong, he admitted as much, but there were just as many people on here calling for his resignation - myself included - and what happens when he's sacked? the same people have nothing better to say than point out that Berg should have never been employed in the first place!

I'll take any balanced argument and opinion as long as its based fairly, but it seems that management bashing seems to be the only thing some people on here want to do.

We won today - not that many people seem to have noticed. Having a conversation with a fellow traveller to the game earlier when we were discussing the comments online and he pointed out that the majority of those commenting couldn't have even been to the game today, judging from the timing of comments and I had cause to reflect that only those who were there today would have understood how significant this win was compared to Singhs insignificant interview. Yet all anyone seems to be discussing is the interview. Funny that isn't it?

Tonight, I should be floating on air from the win, but after reading comments online, here and other social media sites, my heart is heavy. With regret I have to admit to myself that if it wasn't for my love for my beloved Rovers, I would not want to be associated with those who thought boycotting and then sitting online slagging off everything and everyone involved in the Venkys management.

My team played its heart out today. My fellow fans sang their hearts out - as they always have. Its a pity that it just isn't enough for some.

Oh blue blooded. A great post, very honest and reflects very much how I feel. I've not been on here for at least a year. Despite the troubles we have faced - the cynical, negative doctrine put out by the likes of smell TC was too much for me. There's no doubt venkys/ Singh have made many mistakes, but some of our fans feel it necessary to take part in the cycle of negative stories themselves by either spinning media nonsense or simply making up conspiracy stories of their own.
As fans we have become too obsessed with the side show, it's understandable but self defeating. Some of the dark forces out there are hoping for just this reaction from us.
We are better then them. We will rise above.
Happy New Year to all Roverites.
Aye.

Hi Blueblooded, As I've made several comments on here today, I'm a bit confused as to which of those you are referring to, as you didn't quote me,so cannot respond.

I can however, and do, share your obvious delight that we won today.

No I wasn't there, although I would have loved to have been, but circumstances dictate that I could not.

I am not an armchair supporter and have supported Rovers since my dad took me for the first time at the age of seven, and believe me that was a long time ago.

Normally I'm an optimist and a glass half full man, but under the present management I can't see a way forward.

Singhs intent seems to be on running the show at all costs, hence his insistence to appoint a coach / inexperienced manager who he can manipulate and exert his authority.

I don't believe Berg was sacked purely on the results of the last ten games but because, being the honourable person that he is, confronted Singh on his running of the club

Let's hope that today's result is a turning point in the season, whoever is the manager in the immediate future.

1250 Rovers fans there today.

We were terrible for first 20 mins and if we'd conceeded a goal then we could have been totally over-run.

Got the goal then that settled the players.

Great 2nd by RR and into 2nd half we were cruising when they scored out of the blue and even against 10 men (1 of their players went off injured near end) we were awful - kept giving the ball away (Scott Dann especially) instead of holding the ball and running the clock down.

Gomes missed a sitter before JR finished superbly to settle the nerves.

Overall a decent win but the performance was quite mixed and against a decent team we could easily have walked off today having been thrashed.

Don't get carried away - any win is good for us at the moment but Barnsley really are pants (now lost their last 6 home games - you can't get much worse that that).

Shebby on 606 said lot of nothing but at least he shows his face and meets his critics head on. People want answers, he cant give answers he doesnt have. All Ive heard up to now is how bad he was, how about mentioning the fact that he refuted any interference in team selections, that he had no plans to employ Judan Ali and admitted his choice of McDonald as coach?

Seems like the only things people want to concentrate on is how bad he sounded on the radio. I personally thought his calling anyone who listened to those stupid rag rumours to be stupid was ballsy and wholly accurate.

It seems people have a very short memory that only a short few months ago people were pleading for him to get rid of Kean - which despite Keans resignation we all know what and who the catalyst was in making it happen.

Yes, he got the Berg appointment wrong, he admitted as much, but there were just as many people on here calling for his resignation - myself included - and what happens when he's sacked? the same people have nothing better to say than point out that Berg should have never been employed in the first place!

I'll take any balanced argument and opinion as long as its based fairly, but it seems that management bashing seems to be the only thing some people on here want to do.

We won today - not that many people seem to have noticed. Having a conversation with a fellow traveller to the game earlier when we were discussing the comments online and he pointed out that the majority of those commenting couldn't have even been to the game today, judging from the timing of comments and I had cause to reflect that only those who were there today would have understood how significant this win was compared to Singhs insignificant interview. Yet all anyone seems to be discussing is the interview. Funny that isn't it?

Tonight, I should be floating on air from the win, but after reading comments online, here and other social media sites, my heart is heavy. With regret I have to admit to myself that if it wasn't for my love for my beloved Rovers, I would not want to be associated with those who thought boycotting and then sitting online slagging off everything and everyone involved in the Venkys management.

My team played its heart out today. My fellow fans sang their hearts out - as they always have. Its a pity that it just isn't enough for some.

RTID.
a well balanced argument blue blooded and you are correct, it is entirely appropriate to celebrate today's victory.....however, to describe singhs's interview as insignificant is to underestimate the further damage that is being wreaked by this man.

the only comment that i found approval with is that he denied that he took training the day before. remember this is from a man that is so keen to talk to all and sundry - but was too busy to tell our last manager that he was fired as he "too busy showing guests from india around" - his words.

jesus, the bloke couldn't even say what his job was and started with a "i'm not telling" infantile remark.....you want this guy as head of our beloved club - your funeral. this is the same bloke who subsequently went overboard declaring his love for jack walker simply to feign some empathy to rovers fans - any guesses what jack walker would say to him....my guess is that it would involve s.ex and travel.

the man is a sham - he spends his time with the usual pr guff of complementing the questioner with the quality of his question and then rambling on for two minutes sating nothing and totally contradicting himself. personally, i think this man is as clueless an administrator as steve kean was as a manager. i believe he is extremely dangerous and with his finger on the trigger is a blood-curdingly frightening prospect for all rovers supporters. hell in a handcart springs to mind.

i am reminded of the artwork on the front cover of one of my all time favourite LPs - Gang of Four - Entertainment. it features 3 images of a meeting between a cowboy and native american (not in my interpretation racist)
on pic 1 - it says "the indian smiles, because he thinks the cowboy is his friend"
pic 2 - "the cowboys smiles - he is glad the indian is fooled"
pic 3 - "now he can exploit him"
shebby is the cowboy and rovers supporters are the indian.

as i said it is right to celebrate the victory yesterday afternoon - but too many people are taken in by singh's nonsense - he is the original fibbertigibbet.

1250 Rovers fans there today.

We were terrible for first 20 mins and if we'd conceeded a goal then we could have been totally over-run.

Got the goal then that settled the players.

Great 2nd by RR and into 2nd half we were cruising when they scored out of the blue and even against 10 men (1 of their players went off injured near end) we were awful - kept giving the ball away (Scott Dann especially) instead of holding the ball and running the clock down.

Gomes missed a sitter before JR finished superbly to settle the nerves.

Overall a decent win but the performance was quite mixed and against a decent team we could easily have walked off today having been thrashed.

Don't get carried away - any win is good for us at the moment but Barnsley really are pants (now lost their last 6 home games - you can't get much worse that that).
Thanks J.C.

Its good to get back to the football now and then, remind us why we are Rovers fans in the first place.

Yes spot on , but if you were in the bar after the game , Bowyer is NOT /l not NOT prepared to work with the assistant that was thrust upon him by SINGH ? Keans driver.
STEVE BRUCE has emerged as a late shock addition to Blackburn’s most wanted list for their next manager.

Kevin MacDonald is hoping to be confirmed as head coach of the crisis club.

Rovers’ global advisor Shebby Singh is reported to have held talks with the former Aston Villa assistant after the brutal sacking of Henning Berg.

And MacDonald’s appointment would buy Blackburn time in their search for Berg’s managerial successor.

But Blackburn could now decide to follow the Manchester United route again and, after ditching former Old Trafford star Berg, turn to Sir Alex ­Ferguson’s heroic defender Bruce.

Bruce has done a magnificent job at Hull after becoming boss this summer on a three-year deal.

Hull are currently high and mighty in their bid to chase down Championship leaders Cardiff in the race for a Premier League return.

Money is tight at the Humberside club for new signings this season – but funds would be available at Blackburn for Bruce to bring out the cheque book.

Meanwhile, Judan Ali has denied he is set to become part of the coaching set-up at Blackburn.

Ali, an amateur and youth coach, insists he was only at the club’s Brockhall training base on Friday to observe how the club operates.

He said: “I’ve had no intentions of coaching here.

“It’s for my personal development, observing how a professional club is operated and structured for elite players.”

The former Arsenal trainee, 39, who failed to find a club in England after his Gunners release, said: “It’s a time of volatility and controversy and I happen to be at the centre of it all.”

Blackburn have added MK Dons’ talented young boss Karl Robinson to their managerial wish-list.

Robinson, 32, has emerged as a possible successor to Henning Berg amid doubts over whether top choice Kevin MacDonald really wants the job.

Robinson worked at Ewood Park as a coach under Paul Ince before ­becoming the Dons’ boss in May 2010.

He has two years left on his contract and the Dons would seek compensation for a man who has guided them into the League One play-offs in each of his two seasons in charge.

But the chaos engulfing Ewood Park threatens to undermine any long-term, credible appointment.

Owners the Venky family are said to be underwriting the club’s day-to-day running to the tune of £2million a month.

Shebby Singh, the club’s controversial football adviser, is alleged to have told players and senior officials that he would take over as manager – if he possessed the required coaching badges.

As he doesn’t, he needs a front man to succeed Henning Berg as team manager/first team coach.The ­announcement last week that Judan Ali would work as first-team coach sparked surprise in some quarters.

The 39-year-old, a former Arsenal trainee, has no track record in professional football coaching.

And Ewood Park insiders have revealed that he had been shadowing the beleaguered Berg for the previous three weeks.

A club source said: “It’s chaos here. The owners appear to have wiped out Berg and his coaching staff with no contingency plan.

“The crazy thing is that anybody who stands up and points out the problems gets ditched.

“Ryan Nelsen, Jason Roberts and Michel Salgado have all been moved on. Paul Robinson and Morten Gamst Pedersen look like being next.

“In the meantime, there’s an ESPN India camera crew following Shebby Singh for a documentary. It could be riveting.

“Two years ago this month we were a secure, mid-table Premier League club when the Venkys sacked Sam Allardyce. It’s been all downhill since then.”

I walked into the dentists the other day and asked how much it would cost to have a wisdom tooth removed.

"Forty quid," the dentist said.

"That's a ridiculous amount," I said. "Isn't there a cheaper way?"

"Well," the dentist said, "if you don't use an anaesthetic, I can knock the price down to 30 pounds."

I complained, "That's still far too expensive!"

"Okay," said the dentist. "If I save on time and simply rip the tooth out with a pair of pliers, I can knock the price down to 10 pounds."

"Nope," I moaned, "it's still too much."

"Well," said the dentist finally, scratching his head, "if I let one of my students do it using pliers, I suppose I can knock the price down to a fiver."

"Marvelous!" I said. "Book my wife in for next Tuesday!"

Bang on JPainter90 - that was a decent display by OUR team today. Bowyer was immense on the touchline giving solid directions. You can only beat what is in front of you and we did that handsomely today considering the blithe that as supposedly descended on our club. Bowyer showed today that he can transcend that in 48 ours. Priceless. I won't get carried away, but I will enjoy the day as we should after a win. Take that into the next game on the terraces and we are laughing. 1500 supporters today, and I always comment on the away support - were in full voice for every situation that our club finds itself in. Cracking. If Bowyer can motivate and find the winning mentality then what is the problem ? I would like to see him given the opportunity should no manager of repute be lined up as I feel we have nothing to lose ? Against the better teams I would be intrigued to see if he could pull it off ? As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ? Great post pal. So it goes..... Arte et labore
Good win and all that but you are right not to get carried away.

However, I think you may have done in saying Bowyer can "transcend" the "blithe" (I assume you mean blight) within 48 hours and be "immense" on the touchline.

I know footballers aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer but they are still capable of putting their boots on the right feet with or without a manager. Similarly they do remember how to play without having to be reintroduced to that odd round thing and told they have to kick it around a bit.

Basically, no manager really changes anything within 48 hours of taking over a team.

As for his "giving solid instructions"; any examples? It's most likely the players couldn't hear him and wouldn't have taken much notice even if they could.

Yes good result, well done Mr Bowyer and good luck in the future but, as you said yourself, let's not get carried away. With Singh calling the shots we are only one small step away from the next disaster.

I recall saying some time ago his blatherings at the fans meeting would be the start of a whole raft of embarrassing comments, or words to that effect. It is disappointing that he hasn't disappointed, if you know what I mean.

If Venkys are now listening to this heejut rather than Kean, we are still in it up to our necks.

Why would Steve Bruce come to work for Rovers ?

His team are 2nd in the league and we have just sacked one of his best mates (Eric Black).

Shebby on 606 said lot of nothing but at least he shows his face and meets his critics head on. People want answers, he cant give answers he doesnt have. All Ive heard up to now is how bad he was, how about mentioning the fact that he refuted any interference in team selections, that he had no plans to employ Judan Ali and admitted his choice of McDonald as coach?

Seems like the only things people want to concentrate on is how bad he sounded on the radio. I personally thought his calling anyone who listened to those stupid rag rumours to be stupid was ballsy and wholly accurate.

It seems people have a very short memory that only a short few months ago people were pleading for him to get rid of Kean - which despite Keans resignation we all know what and who the catalyst was in making it happen.

Yes, he got the Berg appointment wrong, he admitted as much, but there were just as many people on here calling for his resignation - myself included - and what happens when he's sacked? the same people have nothing better to say than point out that Berg should have never been employed in the first place!

I'll take any balanced argument and opinion as long as its based fairly, but it seems that management bashing seems to be the only thing some people on here want to do.

We won today - not that many people seem to have noticed. Having a conversation with a fellow traveller to the game earlier when we were discussing the comments online and he pointed out that the majority of those commenting couldn't have even been to the game today, judging from the timing of comments and I had cause to reflect that only those who were there today would have understood how significant this win was compared to Singhs insignificant interview. Yet all anyone seems to be discussing is the interview. Funny that isn't it?

Tonight, I should be floating on air from the win, but after reading comments online, here and other social media sites, my heart is heavy. With regret I have to admit to myself that if it wasn't for my love for my beloved Rovers, I would not want to be associated with those who thought boycotting and then sitting online slagging off everything and everyone involved in the Venkys management.

My team played its heart out today. My fellow fans sang their hearts out - as they always have. Its a pity that it just isn't enough for some.

RTID.
a well balanced argument blue blooded and you are correct, it is entirely appropriate to celebrate today's victory.....however, to describe singhs's interview as insignificant is to underestimate the further damage that is being wreaked by this man.

the only comment that i found approval with is that he denied that he took training the day before. remember this is from a man that is so keen to talk to all and sundry - but was too busy to tell our last manager that he was fired as he "too busy showing guests from india around" - his words.

jesus, the bloke couldn't even say what his job was and started with a "i'm not telling" infantile remark.....you want this guy as head of our beloved club - your funeral. this is the same bloke who subsequently went overboard declaring his love for jack walker simply to feign some empathy to rovers fans - any guesses what jack walker would say to him....my guess is that it would involve s.ex and travel.

the man is a sham - he spends his time with the usual pr guff of complementing the questioner with the quality of his question and then rambling on for two minutes sating nothing and totally contradicting himself. personally, i think this man is as clueless an administrator as steve kean was as a manager. i believe he is extremely dangerous and with his finger on the trigger is a blood-curdingly frightening prospect for all rovers supporters. hell in a handcart springs to mind.

i am reminded of the artwork on the front cover of one of my all time favourite LPs - Gang of Four - Entertainment. it features 3 images of a meeting between a cowboy and native american (not in my interpretation racist)
on pic 1 - it says "the indian smiles, because he thinks the cowboy is his friend"
pic 2 - "the cowboys smiles - he is glad the indian is fooled"
pic 3 - "now he can exploit him"
shebby is the cowboy and rovers supporters are the indian.

as i said it is right to celebrate the victory yesterday afternoon - but too many people are taken in by singh's nonsense - he is the original fibbertigibbet.
Thanks for posting that, hasslem hasslem, you've saved me even more typing than I'd planned. The fact that a single person believes Shebby Singh deserves any type of credit is worrying enough. The fact that quite a few people agreed with him is frightening. I wonder if those people agreed with the media when they said Steve Kean had acted with dignity during his tenure?

For blueblooded to say that Shebby Singh meets his critics head-on isn't just laughable, it's also not true. Singh turns up because his ego dictates that he should. He then proceeds to spend the entire interview swerving and dodging every important question put to him. If your local MP did that he'd be gone quicker than you could say, "you don't know what you're doing." To say he can't give answers he doesn't have is ludicrous, he's in charge of the day-to-day running of the club so he should have all the answers.

As for calling Singh 'ballsy' for referring to fans as 'stupid' if they believe the so-called rumours, hang your head in shame. There's a reason why fans believe there could be some element of truth in even the most ridiculous of stories written about the club... thanks to the antics of the owners, and Shebby himself, there usually is some element of truth.

I get the impression that a lot of the so-called rumours are actually ridiculous ideas thought up by Shebby. Those ideas are probably leaked to the press by Shaw and Agnew, or possibly a worried supporter-****-employ
ee, knowing that the backlash from the fans will put the kibosh on said ideas before they materialise.

At the end of the day Shebby Singh was an awful TV pundit who got the opportunity to play Championship Manager with a real club. Unfortunately for us he's far more worse at this job than he was at his last.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

HH, I did say he says a lot of nothing, All he did was deny the rag rumours and dodge getting led into any difficult questions by waffling. My point was more that his interview techniques may be appalling, but it was hardly newsworthy in comparison to what happened on the field yesterday?

On the point about his job description, tbh I'm surprised he didn't lose it and shout" change the f*cking record will ya?! "

Im amazed how many times hes been asked that and how many times hes explained it - not that it needed explaining in the first place if you have any business acumen whatsoever or worked for large corporate organisations. He is simply a go-between in the uk for Venky's. A General Manager, Director of UK/European operations. What are his responsibilities? Probably everything from hiring, firing, spending within his budget. Venky's have basically appointed someone they feel they can trust to oversee operations over here. Its what global businesses do.

Why people keep feeling the need to keep asking him that question - usually in mocking manner." Shebby, what is a "Global Advisor". Christ. In a former role at a well known motor company, I spent a significant amount of time in a not too dissimilar (a lot less paid) job going back and forth in boring meetings across the uk, overseeing operations at plants and my job title made me sound like a shelf stacker in Asda. These titles are just made up. Venky's may have done better calling him Director of Operations, but tbh, its not rocket science that he's in charge here! Little surprise his reply to the question was "No".

I thought the callers, apart from that drunk idiot from the coach were brilliant. I didn't think much of either Savage or the commentators ability to stop Singhs waffling. All in all, apart from putting to rest rumours about Ali and his interference and training, he didnt give anything much away. I wouldn't have expected him to have. Its embarrassing listening to his nervous chuckling and his "you know" in every sentence, but he's all we have to work with, and seeing that prior to his appointment, there was zilch coming out of Ewood Park by our laughably titled "Director of Communications", I'll take it.

The glass doesn't always have to be half full, but its **** depressing that on a good win day some people's glasses are still half empty was all I was saying last night.

The Shebby Singh interview with Robby Savage on radio yesterday confirmed that he is nothing more than an erratic TV commentator. The fact that the owners have entrusted him with the future of the club demonstrates both their ignorance and that the club is in a whole heap of trouble. Watch as gates continue to fall as fans loose faith and interest. Despair as the club gets nearer to bankruptcy. It's not League One that beckons. It will be worse than that.

The Mirror article is v. revealing for Shabby admits he wants to be the manager but doesn't have the qualifications to be accepted by the FA. So he needs a stooge; Berg thought he could manage but Shabby wouldn't let him.
Shabby has the ear of Venkys, that's the long and short of it, so we'll get a stooge as new manager or someone deluded like Berg in thinking he will have some power.
Shabby on 606 was like a parrott on speed. He has learnt a lot of football cliches by heart which he churns out without any real clue as to the meaning of the words.
I reckon we are stuck with Shabby until it becomes absolutely obvious to Venks that he has failed, which means the end of the season. Shabby is Venkys last throw.
My great fear is that we could be relegated, my hope is that we remain in the Championship. If we do claw our way into the play-offs, Shabby will claim to have turned it round and get another season.
What a mess, there's no hope as long as Venkys and Shabby are here.
Mid-table mediocrity is the best option to persuade Venkys to go.
There's going to be a helluva rebuilding task when Venkys decamp, better to begin it in this div than the one below.

Shebby is a complete clown but those two are still part of team Kean and I would rather those two get sacked and replaced with non Kentaro/SEM people if it was a choice between them. Who do you think keep leaking stories to the national press about Ali, Macdonald, etc.

I would like to argue one point. You suggest shebby is right in calling some fans dumb and stupid as he did and yet you keep pompously claiming other fans couldnt have been at the game because of the time they posted on a website?? Dont you know people can use iphones, smartphones etc to do most things a computer will do? It's easy and quick and you can do it anywhere! the number of times I read that on here "judging by the time you post you couldnt have been at the game". In addition, whether some people were able to or not able to travel to Barnsley or afford tickets is not a basis for judging whether they are a Rovers fan or not. its not a closed shop you know - all in or all out. Also, as much as you are entitled to your opinion, you come across as annoying as many others at the other end of the spectrum do because you give your opinion and criticise others as though you are right - and you may not be!! There is somebody on here who chose to leave this country for Canada and yet is slagging off people in East Lancashire. Whatever you believe about Shebby's motives and ability is not necessarily the truth just as others opinion isnt. Just because listeners argue that he sounded stupid (which I thought he did) and that he didnt answer the questions put to him (which I thought he didnt) and that he came across barking mad (which I thought he did) is no reason to have a go at them. Iv been going for over 40 years, am a season ticket holder still and have seen it all but I can honestly say that if you are not seriously concerned after listening to Shebby Singh and hearing about the other two manipulators off to india to tell over him we are in deep do do. In my view, he sounded out of his depth and partly cuckoo. I know one of two people at rovers and as much as you or I would like to believe Shebby is genuine, there is a lot of stuff going on in the corridors of power, and even if there wasnt, nobody can argue that having our club in the hands totally of Shebby Singh is seriously worrying as he is as much qualified for that job as judan Ali is for the manager job. By the way I was thrilled we won, hope it continues.
[quote][p][bold]blueblooded[/bold] wrote: I would love to agree with you HSB, but truth be told there are far too many on here who enjoy the negatives and ignore any positives if they have to do with the management. Shebby on 606 said lot of nothing but at least he shows his face and meets his critics head on. People want answers, he cant give answers he doesnt have. All Ive heard up to now is how bad he was, how about mentioning the fact that he refuted any interference in team selections, that he had no plans to employ Judan Ali and admitted his choice of McDonald as coach? Seems like the only things people want to concentrate on is how bad he sounded on the radio. I personally thought his calling anyone who listened to those stupid rag rumours to be stupid was ballsy and wholly accurate. It seems people have a very short memory that only a short few months ago people were pleading for him to get rid of Kean - which despite Keans resignation we all know what and who the catalyst was in making it happen. Yes, he got the Berg appointment wrong, he admitted as much, but there were just as many people on here calling for his resignation - myself included - and what happens when he's sacked? the same people have nothing better to say than point out that Berg should have never been employed in the first place! I'll take any balanced argument and opinion as long as its based fairly, but it seems that management bashing seems to be the only thing some people on here want to do. We won today - not that many people seem to have noticed. Having a conversation with a fellow traveller to the game earlier when we were discussing the comments online and he pointed out that the majority of those commenting couldn't have even been to the game today, judging from the timing of comments and I had cause to reflect that only those who were there today would have understood how significant this win was compared to Singhs insignificant interview. Yet all anyone seems to be discussing is the interview. Funny that isn't it? Tonight, I should be floating on air from the win, but after reading comments online, here and other social media sites, my heart is heavy. With regret I have to admit to myself that if it wasn't for my love for my beloved Rovers, I would not want to be associated with those who thought boycotting and then sitting online slagging off everything and everyone involved in the Venkys management. My team played its heart out today. My fellow fans sang their hearts out - as they always have. Its a pity that it just isn't enough for some. RTID.[/p][/quote]I would like to argue one point. You suggest shebby is right in calling some fans dumb and stupid as he did and yet you keep pompously claiming other fans couldnt have been at the game because of the time they posted on a website?? Dont you know people can use iphones, smartphones etc to do most things a computer will do? It's easy and quick and you can do it anywhere! the number of times I read that on here "judging by the time you post you couldnt have been at the game". In addition, whether some people were able to or not able to travel to Barnsley or afford tickets is not a basis for judging whether they are a Rovers fan or not. its not a closed shop you know - all in or all out. Also, as much as you are entitled to your opinion, you come across as annoying as many others at the other end of the spectrum do because you give your opinion and criticise others as though you are right - and you may not be!! There is somebody on here who chose to leave this country for Canada and yet is slagging off people in East Lancashire. Whatever you believe about Shebby's motives and ability is not necessarily the truth just as others opinion isnt. Just because listeners argue that he sounded stupid (which I thought he did) and that he didnt answer the questions put to him (which I thought he didnt) and that he came across barking mad (which I thought he did) is no reason to have a go at them. Iv been going for over 40 years, am a season ticket holder still and have seen it all but I can honestly say that if you are not seriously concerned after listening to Shebby Singh and hearing about the other two manipulators off to india to tell over him we are in deep do do.

It looks like shabby is throwing a few test balls and checking everyone's reaction, then distancing himself from his rumours.

He initially got Berg in with the full intent on guiding him, which hasn't worked, so he's brought a third rate Bollywood chum in, with a rumour that he is capable, and as people have cringed at that he has rubbished that one.

He cannot help himself he can probably taste the fame and fortune as the Messia who brought a football club back to life.

If people hadn't showed such repulsion at the rumours put out of this person leading the club he'd be in the hot seat now.

I think he is guided a little by public disgust, and as some have said has a pocket full of cliches to make him sound knowledegable.

The main problem is he has a selfish agenda which he is trying to fit with Football club that he knows nothing about.

The only reason I can think of why Venks can stand him must be that they are doing the same in some capacity, and he takes the limelight from them.

I for one didn't like the statement I saw from Mr wild agreeing with the sacking of Berg as reresentative of Blackburn fans, I hope he hasn't fallen into Shebby's pocket.

Funny you should mention rebuilding and having very little to spend. During his interview on the radio last night, Shebby made a reference to the new manager, whoever that may be, having to utilise the Academy players during the rebuilding process.

Couldn't agree more.
Bang on JPainter90 - that was a decent display by OUR team today. Bowyer was immense on the touchline giving solid directions. You can only beat what is in front of you and we did that handsomely today considering the blithe that as supposedly descended on our club. Bowyer showed today that he can transcend that in 48 ours.

As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ? Great post pal. So it goes..... Arte et labore
Good win and all that but you are right not to get carried away.

However, I think you may have done in saying Bowyer can "transcend" the "blithe" (I assume you mean blight) within 48 hours and be "immense" on the touchline.

I know footballers aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer but they are still capable of putting their boots on the right feet with or without a manager. Similarly they do remember how to play without having to be reintroduced to that odd round thing and told they have to kick it around a bit.

Basically, no manager really changes anything within 48 hours of taking over a team.

As for his "giving solid instructions"; any examples? It's most likely the players couldn't hear him and wouldn't have taken much notice even if they could.

Yes good result, well done Mr Bowyer and good luck in the future but, as you said yourself, let's not get carried away. With Singh calling the shots we are only one small step away from the next disaster.

I recall saying some time ago his blatherings at the fans meeting would be the start of a whole raft of embarrassing comments, or words to that effect. It is disappointing that he hasn't disappointed, if you know what I mean.

If Venkys are now listening to this heejut rather than Kean, we are still in it up to our necks.
Morning Whappen....

No, mate the words written are what I would say are fair ?

'Blithe' is what I believe sums up the situation at present and Bowyer did the deed for BRFC.

French Rover pointed out that the performance was possibly for Berg and the win was the icing on the cake.

I'd debate and discuss the point that things can change over 48 hours, and this display proved that (IMO) ? We have to consider here all the rubbish that is blowing around Ewood with folk who do not care for BRFC. Bowyer put paid to that, and his charges for the day followed that up with a win.

The only example I can give you regards Bowyer on the touchline is that he was involved from the first until the last minute. I would go so far as to say that pressure was absent yesterday ?

I'm not having it that Barnsley were poor because as JC points out they were more than capable of putting us under pressure and a tad more quality in the final 1/3 and things could have been different, but that was not the case. In my estimation we battled hard for that result with Dann(yes, Dann) carrying a facial wound as an example !

Admittedly, stronger opposition will carry more threat, but I believe Bowyer could counter that after yesterday ? Of course, it could all go to sh2t the next game should he be in charge too !!

Whappen it is a pleasure in witnessing the away support 100% behind the team, and they knew that following their applause coming off the pitch.

Whappen could I ask that we speak one to one through email ? I have a few things I would like to put to you ?

Twas a good day yesterday for our club if only for a moment, and I'm having some of that mate because the week will be upon us tomorrow and who knows what conjecture is going to pour forth ?

Thought it was worth sharing the following which was posted in a national newspaper by a Liverpool supporter living in Thailand about our "Illustrious Global Advisor"

I live in Thailand and the best thing that could have happened was when shebby Singh was given the global adviser job at Blackburn why you may ask well let me tell you, as a TV commentator over here on ESPN he was utter garbage the man was and still is clueless when it comes to football. I endured over 3 years of dribble that came out of his mouth when asked to comment about our beautiful game even the other pundits used to snigger at him behind his back the man is a clueless fool I feel sorry for all those life long Blackburn supporters Big Jack must be turning in his grave.

I said a while ago that we need an experienced old hand with the contacts to rebuild things on and off the pitch. Essentially we are woefully short of Team Management and Development, (Strategy, Motivation, Tactics, Coaching, Scouting) but this needs an infrastructure we don't currently have.

We are no longer in the premiership, so you cannot now expect a top manager to join us, so i think it should be a compromise now of an experienced old guy behind the scenes and a promising manager -

I'd go for Simon Grayson to run the team and ask someone like Dario Gradi to sort things out behind him.

Which means Shebby can spend more time holding Mrs D's hand in India and doesn't need to go to Brockhall ever again.

99% of newspaper talk and what appears on forums is pure conjecture that has no basis whatsoever.

Until we get an official statement from the club re the manager the only thing I am interested in is what happens for 90 mins on the pitch.

This is not trivialising the situation - is it basic fact!!!!

Steve Bruce has a track record of falling out with his Chairmen, even those who actually know how to run football clubs, so how long do you think he would last with this bunch of muppets ?

We need a manager who is prepared to spend 3 years rebuilding this club from the ground up with very little money to spend, not a guy who spends everything he can get then jumps ship.
Funny you should mention rebuilding and having very little to spend. During his interview on the radio last night, Shebby made a reference to the new manager, whoever that may be, having to utilise the Academy players during the rebuilding process.
Hi srvp, yes things are so bad that shebby singh realises we are in the 5hit, i know the guy is a complete tool but even a broken watch gets it right twice a day !

I said a while ago that we need an experienced old hand with the contacts to rebuild things on and off the pitch. Essentially we are woefully short of Team Management and Development, (Strategy, Motivation, Tactics, Coaching, Scouting) but this needs an infrastructure we don't currently have.

We are no longer in the premiership, so you cannot now expect a top manager to join us, so i think it should be a compromise now of an experienced old guy behind the scenes and a promising manager -

I'd go for Simon Grayson to run the team and ask someone like Dario Gradi to sort things out behind him.

Which means Shebby can spend more time holding Mrs D's hand in India and doesn't need to go to Brockhall ever again.
To be fair I wasn't talking about what managers I think we could, or should, get in, I was referring to his comment regarding the Academy players. Even though he failed to give a direct answer to any of the questions put to him, I believe Shebby unwittingly let the cat out of the bad with regards to future funding for players.

The fact that Dunn, Etuhu, Givet and Pedersen weren't even allowed to travel, let alone make the bench, may give some indication that we're due a similar January transfer window to last year when senior players were offloaded to ease the wage bill.

I'd be very surprised to see a manager installed in time to assess the squad and bring in any players of their own choosing. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

We are no longer in the premiership, so you cannot now expect a top manager to join us, so i think it should be a compromise now of an experienced old guy behind the scenes and a promising manager - I'd go for Simon Grayson to run the team and ask someone like Dario Gradi to sort things out behind him. Which means Shebby can spend more time holding Mrs D's hand in India and doesn't need to go to Brockhall ever again.[/p][/quote]To be fair I wasn't talking about what managers I think we could, or should, get in, I was referring to his comment regarding the Academy players. Even though he failed to give a direct answer to any of the questions put to him, I believe Shebby unwittingly let the cat out of the bad with regards to future funding for players. The fact that Dunn, Etuhu, Givet and Pedersen weren't even allowed to travel, let alone make the bench, may give some indication that we're due a similar January transfer window to last year when senior players were offloaded to ease the wage bill. I'd be very surprised to see a manager installed in time to assess the squad and bring in any players of their own choosing. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. srvp28

according to sunday mirror, shebby has told senior players and staff that he would manage rovers if he had the badges. i think he`s looking for a puppet manager with shebby pulling all the strings. we will find out with who they appoint. radio 5 interview was a joke, one caller asked `whats your job shebby?, `im not telling you`was his childish reply. god help us.

Mr Bowyer, the match report I saw said the team gave a good disciplined display, someting that has been missing all season. I reckon give the job to Mr Bowyer, he is obviously the sortof guy that is needed to run the team.

99% of newspaper talk and what appears on forums is pure conjecture that has no basis whatsoever.

Until we get an official statement from the club re the manager the only thing I am interested in is what happens for 90 mins on the pitch.

This is not trivialising the situation - is it basic fact!!!!
I'm sure every Rovers fan is happy with the result yesterday but that doesn't mean we have to stop taking an interest in what's happening off the pitch. Being aware that certain people aren't good for the club doesn't make us moaners, it shows that one win isn't going to gloss over the shambles that's become of Rovers.

I'm certain that I celebrated Rovers win yesterday as much as any other fan but it doesn't mean that I think we're suddenly in a better position. Saying that Bowyer should be given the job after one game is the sort of irrational thinking that has led to most of the calamitous decisions made by Venky's and Shebby Singh.

Bowyer was immense on the touchline giving solid directions. You can only beat what is in front of you and we did that handsomely today considering the blithe that as supposedly descended on our club. Bowyer showed today that he can transcend that in 48 ours. Priceless.

I won't get carried away, but I will enjoy the day as we should after a win. Take that into the next game on the terraces and we are laughing. 1500 supporters today, and I always comment on the away support - were in full voice for every situation that our club finds itself in. Cracking.

If Bowyer can motivate and find the winning mentality then what is the problem ? I would like to see him given the opportunity should no manager of repute be lined up as I feel we have nothing to lose ? Against the better teams I would be intrigued to see if he could pull it off ? As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ?

Great post pal.

So it goes.....

Hi woody...sounds like a good day out was had by all - deservedly so after all the rubbish we had this week. Glad to see Bowyer doing a decent job today but still bet this win was for Berg. He was getting the job done albeit too slowly but that's now history and the story of our club continues without him. I think the fans reaction scared Shebby from appointing Ali in some position butMcDonald is still on the cards it seems. And will we ever hear from Agnew again? The soap opera aka BRFC continues while we await the latest cast changes. Allez les Bleus!

BTW I think Baldy was just being sarcastic with his comment about Bowyer Out - I understand what he means well enough and am surprised the regular gloom and doom merchants are not calling for his head yet too...
McDonald is most certainly on the cards if Singh has his way....He wants a coach, UNDER him, not a manager above him.
Have you spoken to mcdonalds or are you speculating.

Agnew and shaw were recruited by a certain person,I wonder who is leaking inside rover information. Both have been hiding and non effective. They need to go and attempts made to bring Williams back if at all possible.
If Agnew and Shaw are leaking inside information to the press then good on them. As I've already mentioned on this thread, I believe Singh comes up with ridiculous ideas but as soon as the fans get wind of them their adverse reactions put the kibosh on most of them. I honestly believe that Judan Ali WAS being lined up for a coaching role until the backlash from the leaked stories led to Singh and Ali denying any such agreement had been proposed. After all, if Ali was supposed to be shadowing the coaching staff why was he spending all his time with Shebby?

As for getting Williams back, let it go. I've already asked you, on another thread, why Williams would return to work for the same people who led to him tendering his resignation? The short answers is, he wouldn't.

Have a read. Great guy, great blog.
Some good players worth considering, even if only on loan. Shay Given was the first name I thought of when I read that Friedel had signed a contract extension at Spurs.

With regards to a midfielder, I think Wilson Palacios would be ideal. He's a great player but can't get a game at Stoke. I'm sure he'd relish the chance to play first team football.

I know I'll get slated for this but why not enquire about getting Hoilett back on a six month loan deal? He's dropped behind Wright-Phillips in the pecking order at QPR but would be dynamite in the Championship. He could be our Thomas Ince.

It doesn't matter if anybody agrees with me or not though as I doubt we'll sign anybody next month.

As for getting Williams back, let it go. I've already asked you, on another thread, why Williams would return to work for the same people who led to him tendering his resignation? The short answers is, he wouldn't.
He probably wouldn't, but strange things happen in the crazy world we call football. Steve Bruce probably wouldn't come either, but if he did he would likely want his trusted coach Eric Black as his No. 2 !

I like your Shay Given, Junior Hoilett thoughts, though. Shay Given should never have left us in the first place - in my mind a better (and much younger)keeper than our then No 1 Tim Flowers.

Now then Bazzer your last libellous

If Venkeys had replaced hoofy with good experienced manager then we wouldn't be having this exchange of words, but they didn't and the rest is as they say history....the worst in all BRFC proud history even the 'electric bill'
I see Fat Sam has reached the dizzy heights of mid table mediocrity again. It won't be long before the west ham board and faithful tire of his hoof and run, hit and hope, lump n launch, kick and rush, aussie rules, up and under win nothing tactics.
Then Bazzer will want him up here again. The thing is with Allardyce, he's running out of clubs to bore the arse off and he'll never get a top five side. He is the quintessential mid table journeyman. Unless of course he gets his wish and get Barcelona
HOOF.

So I ask again is Shebby after an experienced manager....No he's after a coach who he can tell what to do, otherwise he wouldnt have a job.
Agnew and shaw were recruited by a certain person,I wonder who is leaking inside rover information. Both have been hiding and non effective. They need to go and attempts made to bring Williams back if at all possible.
If Agnew and Shaw are leaking inside information to the press then good on them. As I've already mentioned on this thread, I believe Singh comes up with ridiculous ideas but as soon as the fans get wind of them their adverse reactions put the kibosh on most of them. I honestly believe that Judan Ali WAS being lined up for a coaching role until the backlash from the leaked stories led to Singh and Ali denying any such agreement had been proposed. After all, if Ali was supposed to be shadowing the coaching staff why was he spending all his time with Shebby?

As for getting Williams back, let it go. I've already asked you, on another thread, why Williams would return to work for the same people who led to him tendering his resignation? The short answers is, he wouldn't.
So basically you welcome backstabbing of Singh from two of Kean's cohorts based on conjecture that he may or may not be trying to install himself as a manager? this despite both Berg and Singh denying he had any involvement with player choices?

You said earlier I should hang my head in shame for saying it was ballsy of Singh to call PEOPLE (not just fans, though it suits some to think so) who believed he took training stupid for listening to baseless rag rumours?

How about laying down some proof before throwing accusations of what you "honestly believe" to be true? What are your accusations based on? You don't like him, few people do but that's not proof of any of the accusations being made against him. I'm hardly a Shebby fan. The "Snake" tag given to him is to me is most apt, he's looks to be as slippery as they come and no doubt make a lot more gaffs before we hear the last of him, but please for love of Rovers, let us not pretend to know what's going on in the boardroom. Very few people outside those involved actually do.

By getting sucked into the rumour mill we allow those who enjoy watching our downfall, stir up more hatred and frenzy so we again end up becoming the bad guys whilst they delight in our demise and those responsible gain media wide sympathy and end up looking like the good guys, as was the case with Kean, who has this week, incredibly been portrayed as the saviour we the fans hounded out!

He stated on 606 with Robbie Savage that he was very happy because he got 6 points yesterday. He explained the 3 points were for BRFC and the other 3 for spurs.

Why , during what was a PR opportunity with our fans would anyone in the right mind mention another club winning as being a positive, why would he think any of our fans would want to hear that. This about sums the man up and it's extremely concerning to think that someone with his poor understanding of the basics in PR (particularly when his last job was working on TV) is running our football club.

Bowyer out!
Give it a break d*ick head..




Bowyer knows this team inside out with all the youngsters that have come through. 1 game 1 win is a start. He's no muppet and been at the club for 8 years.

FFS some of you so called Rovers supporters are a disgrace to the Club and to the area of Lancashire. Aim your opinions at the owners and not the Employees of BRFC.
Couldn't agree more.
Bang on JPainter90 - that was a decent display by OUR team today.

Bowyer was immense on the touchline giving solid directions. You can only beat what is in front of you and we did that handsomely today considering the blithe that as supposedly descended on our club. Bowyer showed today that he can transcend that in 48 ours. Priceless.

I won't get carried away, but I will enjoy the day as we should after a win. Take that into the next game on the terraces and we are laughing. 1500 supporters today, and I always comment on the away support - were in full voice for every situation that our club finds itself in. Cracking.

If Bowyer can motivate and find the winning mentality then what is the problem ? I would like to see him given the opportunity should no manager of repute be lined up as I feel we have nothing to lose ? Against the better teams I would be intrigued to see if he could pull it off ? As is rightly pointed out - 8 years, and without quoting me here as I don't know to much of his history, but I was pleased to see some fight, belief(a third on the break after some pressure from Barnsley - this was no Huddersfield) we took full advantage of the situation. Good to see, in my estimation ?

Great post pal.

So it goes.....

Arte et labore
Hi woody...sounds like a good day out was had by all - deservedly so after all the rubbish we had this week. Glad to see Bowyer doing a decent job today but still bet this win was for Berg. He was getting the job done albeit too slowly but that's now history and the story of our club continues without him. I think the fans reaction scared Shebby from appointing Ali in some position butMcDonald is still on the cards it seems. And will we ever hear from Agnew again? The soap opera aka BRFC continues while we await the latest cast changes. Allez les Bleus!

BTW I think Baldy was just being sarcastic with his comment about Bowyer Out - I understand what he means well enough and am surprised the regular gloom and doom merchants are not calling for his head yet too...
McDonald is most certainly on the cards if Singh has his way....He wants a coach, UNDER him, not a manager above him.
Have you spoken to mcdonalds or are you speculating.
No........Only a blind man can't see it.

So I ask again is Shebby after an experienced manager....No he's after a coach who he can tell what to do, otherwise he wouldnt have a job.
Agnew and shaw were recruited by a certain person,I wonder who is leaking inside rover information. Both have been hiding and non effective. They need to go and attempts made to bring Williams back if at all possible.
If Agnew and Shaw are leaking inside information to the press then good on them. As I've already mentioned on this thread, I believe Singh comes up with ridiculous ideas but as soon as the fans get wind of them their adverse reactions put the kibosh on most of them. I honestly believe that Judan Ali WAS being lined up for a coaching role until the backlash from the leaked stories led to Singh and Ali denying any such agreement had been proposed. After all, if Ali was supposed to be shadowing the coaching staff why was he spending all his time with Shebby?

As for getting Williams back, let it go. I've already asked you, on another thread, why Williams would return to work for the same people who led to him tendering his resignation? The short answers is, he wouldn't.
Ali is on bigger things, he and Venkys are exploring Bollywood films, he is going round few different countries, not only uk, presumably getting ideas. Singh is amenable to request from communities and others using rovers facilities, good on him.

This about sums the man up and it's extremely concerning to think that someone with his poor understanding of the basics in PR (particularly when his last job was working on TV) is running our football club.
The problem with Ziggy is that he's not very bright. I think the whole segment on 606 demonstrated this. He is an embarrassment and needs to go before any further damage is done.

For someone who has worked on TV , how many times did he say "you know" to fill the gaps? English might not be his mother tongue but come on , he certainly doesn't sound brightest by a long shot.

He is certainly making a lot of noise, what with this Ali bloke coming down to training, what did he say, this was organised months ago and it was unfortunate that all this has happened in the past few days? Call the visit off then, what was the benefit to our club if he was simply just visiting, surely there are more pressing matters to deal with.

Maybe all this noise is to help him build a reputation in the UK and he is using the misguided belief that any PR is good PR.

So basically you welcome backstabbing of Singh from two of Kean's cohorts based on conjecture that he may or may not be trying to install himself as a manager? this despite both Berg and Singh denying he had any involvement with player choices?

You said earlier I should hang my head in shame for saying it was ballsy of Singh to call PEOPLE (not just fans, though it suits some to think so) who believed he took training stupid for listening to baseless rag rumours?

How about laying down some proof before throwing accusations of what you "honestly believe" to be true? What are your accusations based on? You don't like him, few people do but that's not proof of any of the accusations being made against him. I'm hardly a Shebby fan. The "Snake" tag given to him is to me is most apt, he's looks to be as slippery as they come and no doubt make a lot more gaffs before we hear the last of him, but please for love of Rovers, let us not pretend to know what's going on in the boardroom. Very few people outside those involved actually do.

By getting sucked into the rumour mill we allow those who enjoy watching our downfall, stir up more hatred and frenzy so we again end up becoming the bad guys whilst they delight in our demise and those responsible gain media wide sympathy and end up looking like the good guys, as was the case with Kean, who has this week, incredibly been portrayed as the saviour we the fans hounded out!
Well said, unfortunately some rovers fans are too gullible and believe everything they hear or read. Back to football great for rovers to get 3 points ans see some of you at forest game and hoping for a result.

Point to a single sentence in any of my posts where I've said Shebby Singh is after the managers job himself.

As for needing proof for what I believe is happening behind the scenes, I don't need any as it is not a statement of fact, merely an opinion formed on the back of what has gone on at the club since Shebby Singh was hired.

He made no secret of the fact that he was after Sherwood, then McKinlay, but when fans voiced their disapproval he tried to distance himself from those stories. Stories about Judan Ali being considered for a coaching role were told to Andy Cryer from a club official. Just because Shebby says it was nonsense doesn't mean that there wasn't any truth in it to begin with.

He even had the audacity to say that Balaji Rao didn't say he'd already lined up a manager when the publication that ran the story have stated that two of their employees were there when Rao said it.

Just a couple of points regarding the ret of your reply. Kean publicly stated that he had never even seen some of the players that SHEBBY brought in during the summer, and Berg wasn't even given a transfer window.

You referred to Shaw and Agnew as Kean's cohorts then complain about others stirring up hatred. Steve Kean didn't employ either of them, nor did he have the final say on either of their promotions. There are guys I work with who were pals with an ex-colleague that nobody liked. We don't think that those guys are still working in cahoots with their friend to undermine the person who, ultimately, replaced him. That's just ridiculous.

With regards to the PEOPLE that Shebby called stupid, he was obviously referring to the fans because it was a debate about Blackburn Rovers with questions coming its fan base.

Please don't try and make out that I'm trying to stir up a frenzy. After all, it's not as if I was calling for Berg's head after less than two months in the job...

After all, if Ali was supposed to be shadowing the coaching staff why was he spending all his time with Shebby? As for getting Williams back, let it go. I've already asked you, on another thread, why Williams would return to work for the same people who led to him tendering his resignation? The short answers is, he wouldn't.[/p][/quote]So basically you welcome backstabbing of Singh from two of Kean's cohorts based on conjecture that he may or may not be trying to install himself as a manager? this despite both Berg and Singh denying he had any involvement with player choices? You said earlier I should hang my head in shame for saying it was ballsy of Singh to call PEOPLE (not just fans, though it suits some to think so) who believed he took training stupid for listening to baseless rag rumours? How about laying down some proof before throwing accusations of what you "honestly believe" to be true? What are your accusations based on? You don't like him, few people do but that's not proof of any of the accusations being made against him. I'm hardly a Shebby fan. The "Snake" tag given to him is to me is most apt, he's looks to be as slippery as they come and no doubt make a lot more gaffs before we hear the last of him, but please for love of Rovers, let us not pretend to know what's going on in the boardroom. Very few people outside those involved actually do. By getting sucked into the rumour mill we allow those who enjoy watching our downfall, stir up more hatred and frenzy so we again end up becoming the bad guys whilst they delight in our demise and those responsible gain media wide sympathy and end up looking like the good guys, as was the case with Kean, who has this week, incredibly been portrayed as the saviour we the fans hounded out![/p][/quote]Point to a single sentence in any of my posts where I've said Shebby Singh is after the managers job himself. As for needing proof for what I believe is happening behind the scenes, I don't need any as it is not a statement of fact, merely an opinion formed on the back of what has gone on at the club since Shebby Singh was hired. He made no secret of the fact that he was after Sherwood, then McKinlay, but when fans voiced their disapproval he tried to distance himself from those stories. Stories about Judan Ali being considered for a coaching role were told to Andy Cryer from a club official. Just because Shebby says it was nonsense doesn't mean that there wasn't any truth in it to begin with.

Ali is on bigger things, he and Venkys are exploring Bollywood films, he is going round few different countries, not only uk, presumably getting ideas. Singh is amenable to request from communities and others using rovers facilities, good on him.
Really? Because that completely contradicts the statement that Ali gave to the Lancashire Telegraph a few days ago.

There will be no medals of bravery for any of them. They'll make a film about it all in the future. Be a hit comedy for all but rovers fans.

Sorry MOH, I'm not gullible and don't believe everything I read, but I do know Venkys are a disaster for Rovers and my fifteen year old granddaughter is more articulate than Shebby Singh. There's absolutely no doubt about that.

Can you compare Singh to Dalgleish, Souness Allardyce or Hughes.

What the hell is he doing running our club

I could like him if he would just answer a simple question.....Yes or No.

He thinks you already know "you know"! You might as well consult a medium to find the answers or play cluedo. It was Paul Agnew in the boardroom with the Worthington Cup!

Claim and counter claim, rumour and counter rumour, so what happens next, why, if, when and how?

I couldn't listen to 5 live last night but I did listen to it this morning on I player and quite a few things Shebby said made me think.

Shebby said "I am battling things inside and outside the club", outside is easy, disgruntled fans, me included, that don't believe anything that comes out of Ewood.

But what is the problem inside? Shaw, Agnew, or some of the players and staff who still belong to the Allardyce era?, who can tell.

The fact that certain players appear to no longer part of the future of the club suggests something. As far as I am concerned the players are paid to play for the club irrespective of personal loyalties, it isn't their job or role to get involved, lets face it, as soon as a better offer comes along they will be off anyway and stuff Blackburn Rovers and the fans who idolised them.

Remember a certain Alan Shearer anyone?

Givet, sulks at the drop of a hat, or a cheque for £75k, whatever comes first, Robinson, the best OPTA assists in the PL under Allardyce, now a pale shadow of his former self.

And lets look at Ryan Nelsen, too severely injured to play for Rovers when we desperately needed him, until he got the transfer away he wanted, did any of you see what he did for QPR today?

And I really do suspect the Allardyce engineered his own dismissal, and pocketed a nice fat cheque in the process, but that's football management for you.

I have criticised Shebby left right and centre but I will give him one concession, he has the balls to stand up and be counted, to actually talk to people who hate his guts because of who he represents, and I will tell you one thing, having had to do that in the past myself, that is one of the hardest things to do in life.

When he says "I did not, do not take training", you know what? I actually believe him, because the passion was there, it wasn't rehearsed, it was to me a genuine reaction from someone who is possibly just as **** off with things as we, the fans are.

The simple fact is there are certain newspapers, the Daily Mirror being one, who have never forgiven Rovers for taking the 94 title away from their beloved red scum, and have derided Rovers ever since, so anything they print means absolutely nothing to me, they love nothing better than twisting the knife.

This doesn't mean I trust Venky's, or for that matter Shebby, but at the end of the day they currently own the club I have supported for a huge chunk of my life.

The problem at Rovers is there is too much distrust and hatred, on both sides of the divide if we are honest, none of us know what Venky's want, I doubt very much that they understand it themselves yet.

As far as Shebby is concerned I still think he's a clown, but he took the red nose off last night, in the next few weeks he may just get rid of the wig, then the baggy pant's, you never know.

The rest in reality is up to you and me, the real fans, we have to stop fighting each other and support our club, give the players confidence by supporting them, give whatever management structure we end up with the same level of confidence by supporting them.

If we can't see our way past the current level of hatred then it won't be long before Rovers will be consigned to history, and that will make us, the fans, just as responsible as Venky's for our demise.

So your point is what exactly ? you seem happy to critcise the players, and the fans, and tell us to get behind whatever management structure we end up with !

Have you not been watching what has been happening at BRFC ? do you seriously not think something is wrong ?

In many years as a season ticket holder I've never seen such chaos, and I'm bloody sure it wasn't the players or the fans that created it, it was the owners of the club, their advisors, and the management they put in place.

As for Shebby Singh, the man is a deluded chancer and completely out of his depth, the one big thing he has presided over, the appointment of a new manager, was a total bloody fiasco.

So, I will continue to support BRFC, I will continue to support the team, but I will not be told to sit quietly and not have an opinion on whatever the arrogant and incompetent fools want to do with our club.

These forums are a long way from perfect but they are at least a place to debate these issues, and it would appear public outrage is something that Shebby Singh does actually take notice of.

The rest in reality is up to you and me, the real fans, we have to stop fighting each other and support our club, give the players confidence by supporting them, give whatever management structure we end up with the same level of confidence by supporting them.

If we can't see our way past the current level of hatred then it won't be long before Rovers will be consigned to history, and that will make us, the fans, just as responsible as Venky's for our demise.
So your point is what exactly ? you seem happy to critcise the players, and the fans, and tell us to get behind whatever management structure we end up with !

Have you not been watching what has been happening at BRFC ? do you seriously not think something is wrong ?

In many years as a season ticket holder I've never seen such chaos, and I'm bloody sure it wasn't the players or the fans that created it, it was the owners of the club, their advisors, and the management they put in place.

As for Shebby Singh, the man is a deluded chancer and completely out of his depth, the one big thing he has presided over, the appointment of a new manager, was a total bloody fiasco.

So, I will continue to support BRFC, I will continue to support the team, but I will not be told to sit quietly and not have an opinion on whatever the arrogant and incompetent fools want to do with our club.

These forums are a long way from perfect but they are at least a place to debate these issues, and it would appear public outrage is something that Shebby Singh does actually take notice of.
Where have I said it is solely the fans and players to blame?

And I am certainly not suggesting anyone shouldn't voice an opinion, but I am entitled to put mine forward as well.

I think I have made it very clear that I want Venky's out and I want Shebby out.

You say the players don't carry any blame? well they were the ones who were on the pitch and got us relegated last season.

And lets not forget Samba, Nelsen, two of the best defenders in the PL refused to play last season, but were fine once they moved away from Ewood.

Is that acceptable to you, a Rovers fan?

Because it isn't to me, a Rovers fan.

And what about Givet? When he decides to play he is brilliant, but because last season he had a 12 match or so sulk over £75k "owed" to a "Tailor" from Manchester we ended up have to play Dann who wasn't fit but was the only experienced defender we had at the time.

Is that attitude from another key player acceptable you, a Rovers fan?

Because it isn't acceptable to me, a Rovers fan.

And like it or not we Rovers fans have some responsibility because we turned Ewood Park into a bear-pit of hatred against Kean last season, and visiting managers, teams and fans used that against us, costing us valuable home points.

I don't enjoy going down to Ewood anymore, not because we were relegated but because it is no longer the club I have supported for over 40 years.

All that is happening at the moment is our club is sliding into oblivion while we play the blame game instead of trying to put things right.

We have been doing that for two years, it isn't working.

Shebby must read these pages, make a decision based on what he reads and then he announces it - then he changes his mind based on the reaction on here to the decision he announced. Or that's the way it seems.

I don't know if he is just a 'populist' who is trying to cement his 400k a year position by currying favour with the Rovers fans - or if he is just genuinely interested in helping the club but as he has no more experience about managing a club than anyone else on here so he takes what he considers the majority of fans opinion and hopes that this is the right decision/choice.

Whatever his intentions are then it is no way to run a football club with over 137 years of history. We need stability and sensibility with good football club management at director level to take the club forward. Though to be realistic and fair to the guy, there are much more devious and manipulating characters than Shebby Singh in football club boardrooms up and down the country these days.

Maybe we were 'spoilt' a little in the past - as we had such a previously well run and professional club that was admired by many.Perhaps what we have now is a symptom of the Murdoch money money money football world and we will either have to live with it or leave it.

When Shebby the Snake engineered the departure of Steve Kean, many on these pages hailed him the Messiah and unfortunately, he believed you. Not surprisingly, most of you have now woken up to realise that he is more a part of the problem than the solution but who can advise the owners that their advisor is deluded megalomaniac? I suspect that Shaw and Agnew are trying desperately to do so but their abject silence to this point speaks volumes regarding their influence over, and commitment to this club. I actually feel sorry for the owners. they have been ill advised, turned over, and stitched up like kippers from the first day they met the Walker Trust, who are, of course, the true villains of this sordid piece. So what does the future hold? Well as with the departure of Kean, we now have the opportunity to start afresh but the managerial appointment is crucial. He must be experienced, credible, popular and strong enough to stand up to interference and to my mind therefore, the only current candidate is Mark Hughes.

Couldn't agree more, he promised on 5 Live 606 no less, a national radio station, a promise made to Robbie Savage and every Rovers fan listening that he was trying to get an experienced manager in.

If he achieves that I am hoping it will be a step forward, which we all desperately need.

What is most important though is we all get behind Rovers tomorrow against a pretty decent team and come away with three points.

We need stability and sensibility with good football club management at director level to take the club forward. Though to be realistic and fair to the guy, there are much more devious and manipulating characters than Shebby Singh in football club boardrooms up and down the country these days. Maybe we were 'spoilt' a little in the past - as we had such a previously well run and professional club that was admired by many.Perhaps what we have now is a symptom of the Murdoch money money money football world and we will either have to live with it or leave it.[/p][/quote]Couldn't agree more, he promised on 5 Live 606 no less, a national radio station, a promise made to Robbie Savage and every Rovers fan listening that he was trying to get an experienced manager in. If he achieves that I am hoping it will be a step forward, which we all desperately need. What is most important though is we all get behind Rovers tomorrow against a pretty decent team and come away with three points. owd nick

Funny, I thought Henning Berg had more wins in the last ten games than Mark Hughes, how does that work?
I think you might find that Mark Hughes was facing rather stiffer opposition than Henning Berg with a bunch of players that had proven themselves to be a bunch of spineless mercenaries who had betrayed the trust and investment that Hughes had shown in them. When he addressed this, they openly rebelled against him and forced him out. Apart from that, your analogy is a fair one.

Claim and counter claim, rumour and counter rumour, so what happens next, why, if, when and how?

I couldn't listen to 5 live last night but I did listen to it this morning on I player and quite a few things Shebby said made me think.

Shebby said "I am battling things inside and outside the club", outside is easy, disgruntled fans, me included, that don't believe anything that comes out of Ewood.

But what is the problem inside? Shaw, Agnew, or some of the players and staff who still belong to the Allardyce era?, who can tell.

The fact that certain players appear to no longer part of the future of the club suggests something. As far as I am concerned the players are paid to play for the club irrespective of personal loyalties, it isn't their job or role to get involved, lets face it, as soon as a better offer comes along they will be off anyway and stuff Blackburn Rovers and the fans who idolised them.

Remember a certain Alan Shearer anyone?

Givet, sulks at the drop of a hat, or a cheque for £75k, whatever comes first, Robinson, the best OPTA assists in the PL under Allardyce, now a pale shadow of his former self.

And lets look at Ryan Nelsen, too severely injured to play for Rovers when we desperately needed him, until he got the transfer away he wanted, did any of you see what he did for QPR today?

And I really do suspect the Allardyce engineered his own dismissal, and pocketed a nice fat cheque in the process, but that's football management for you.

I have criticised Shebby left right and centre but I will give him one concession, he has the balls to stand up and be counted, to actually talk to people who hate his guts because of who he represents, and I will tell you one thing, having had to do that in the past myself, that is one of the hardest things to do in life.

When he says "I did not, do not take training", you know what? I actually believe him, because the passion was there, it wasn't rehearsed, it was to me a genuine reaction from someone who is possibly just as **** off with things as we, the fans are.

The simple fact is there are certain newspapers, the Daily Mirror being one, who have never forgiven Rovers for taking the 94 title away from their beloved red scum, and have derided Rovers ever since, so anything they print means absolutely nothing to me, they love nothing better than twisting the knife.

This doesn't mean I trust Venky's, or for that matter Shebby, but at the end of the day they currently own the club I have supported for a huge chunk of my life.

The problem at Rovers is there is too much distrust and hatred, on both sides of the divide if we are honest, none of us know what Venky's want, I doubt very much that they understand it themselves yet.

As far as Shebby is concerned I still think he's a clown, but he took the red nose off last night, in the next few weeks he may just get rid of the wig, then the baggy pant's, you never know.

The rest in reality is up to you and me, the real fans, we have to stop fighting each other and support our club, give the players confidence by supporting them, give whatever management structure we end up with the same level of confidence by supporting them.

If we can't see our way past the current level of hatred then it won't be long before Rovers will be consigned to history, and that will make us, the fans, just as responsible as Venky's for our demise.
So your point is what exactly ? you seem happy to critcise the players, and the fans, and tell us to get behind whatever management structure we end up with !

Have you not been watching what has been happening at BRFC ? do you seriously not think something is wrong ?

In many years as a season ticket holder I've never seen such chaos, and I'm bloody sure it wasn't the players or the fans that created it, it was the owners of the club, their advisors, and the management they put in place.

As for Shebby Singh, the man is a deluded chancer and completely out of his depth, the one big thing he has presided over, the appointment of a new manager, was a total bloody fiasco.

So, I will continue to support BRFC, I will continue to support the team, but I will not be told to sit quietly and not have an opinion on whatever the arrogant and incompetent fools want to do with our club.

These forums are a long way from perfect but they are at least a place to debate these issues, and it would appear public outrage is something that Shebby Singh does actually take notice of.
Where have I said it is solely the fans and players to blame?

And I am certainly not suggesting anyone shouldn't voice an opinion, but I am entitled to put mine forward as well.

I think I have made it very clear that I want Venky's out and I want Shebby out.

You say the players don't carry any blame? well they were the ones who were on the pitch and got us relegated last season.

And lets not forget Samba, Nelsen, two of the best defenders in the PL refused to play last season, but were fine once they moved away from Ewood.

Is that acceptable to you, a Rovers fan?

Because it isn't to me, a Rovers fan.

And what about Givet? When he decides to play he is brilliant, but because last season he had a 12 match or so sulk over £75k "owed" to a "Tailor" from Manchester we ended up have to play Dann who wasn't fit but was the only experienced defender we had at the time.

Is that attitude from another key player acceptable you, a Rovers fan?

Because it isn't acceptable to me, a Rovers fan.

And like it or not we Rovers fans have some responsibility because we turned Ewood Park into a bear-pit of hatred against Kean last season, and visiting managers, teams and fans used that against us, costing us valuable home points.

I don't enjoy going down to Ewood anymore, not because we were relegated but because it is no longer the club I have supported for over 40 years.

All that is happening at the moment is our club is sliding into oblivion while we play the blame game instead of trying to put things right.

We have been doing that for two years, it isn't working.
Great to see you exercising the right to debate, and have an opinion, clearly we are on the same side when it comes to wanting Rovers to suceed.

My opinion is Rovers players are no different to any others, certainly not perfect but they are unlucky to be asked to work for the biggest clowns in football. All your examples performed bloody well for this club when they had decent managers, Co-incidence ?

Rovers fans similarly have had a bucketful of nonsense to endure, telling us its our fault is simply laughable.

And, by the way, going back to your original post, if you think representing others views when talking to people is one of the hardest things to do in life you have been truly blessed or need to get out more. Its not even close.Try talking to aid workers in the 3rd world, or our troops in Afghanistan, or closer to home the staff at Alder Hey, or in a hospice, they have difficult things to do.

Shebby Singh is a media whore and living his dream at our expense, he can't resist any audience because he seriously believes he can run this club. You may respect him, I don't.

No matter if you work for Billy smart himself, if he's paying your wages, you do the job you are payed for, or you get potted, no sulking, no I'm not coming out for the second half like bottom lip Givet, grow some nuts or ship out. And if lard arse Robinson cannot shift a stone when he's been asked on numerous occasions were going to need a bigger pocket.

Claim and counter claim, rumour and counter rumour, so what happens next, why, if, when and how?

I couldn't listen to 5 live last night but I did listen to it this morning on I player and quite a few things Shebby said made me think.

Shebby said "I am battling things inside and outside the club", outside is easy, disgruntled fans, me included, that don't believe anything that comes out of Ewood.

But what is the problem inside? Shaw, Agnew, or some of the players and staff who still belong to the Allardyce era?, who can tell.

The fact that certain players appear to no longer part of the future of the club suggests something. As far as I am concerned the players are paid to play for the club irrespective of personal loyalties, it isn't their job or role to get involved, lets face it, as soon as a better offer comes along they will be off anyway and stuff Blackburn Rovers and the fans who idolised them.

Remember a certain Alan Shearer anyone?

Givet, sulks at the drop of a hat, or a cheque for £75k, whatever comes first, Robinson, the best OPTA assists in the PL under Allardyce, now a pale shadow of his former self.

And lets look at Ryan Nelsen, too severely injured to play for Rovers when we desperately needed him, until he got the transfer away he wanted, did any of you see what he did for QPR today?

And I really do suspect the Allardyce engineered his own dismissal, and pocketed a nice fat cheque in the process, but that's football management for you.

I have criticised Shebby left right and centre but I will give him one concession, he has the balls to stand up and be counted, to actually talk to people who hate his guts because of who he represents, and I will tell you one thing, having had to do that in the past myself, that is one of the hardest things to do in life.

When he says "I did not, do not take training", you know what? I actually believe him, because the passion was there, it wasn't rehearsed, it was to me a genuine reaction from someone who is possibly just as **** off with things as we, the fans are.

The simple fact is there are certain newspapers, the Daily Mirror being one, who have never forgiven Rovers for taking the 94 title away from their beloved red scum, and have derided Rovers ever since, so anything they print means absolutely nothing to me, they love nothing better than twisting the knife.

This doesn't mean I trust Venky's, or for that matter Shebby, but at the end of the day they currently own the club I have supported for a huge chunk of my life.

The problem at Rovers is there is too much distrust and hatred, on both sides of the divide if we are honest, none of us know what Venky's want, I doubt very much that they understand it themselves yet.

As far as Shebby is concerned I still think he's a clown, but he took the red nose off last night, in the next few weeks he may just get rid of the wig, then the baggy pant's, you never know.

The rest in reality is up to you and me, the real fans, we have to stop fighting each other and support our club, give the players confidence by supporting them, give whatever management structure we end up with the same level of confidence by supporting them.

If we can't see our way past the current level of hatred then it won't be long before Rovers will be consigned to history, and that will make us, the fans, just as responsible as Venky's for our demise.

Claim and counter claim, rumour and counter rumour, so what happens next, why, if, when and how?

I couldn't listen to 5 live last night but I did listen to it this morning on I player and quite a few things Shebby said made me think.

Shebby said "I am battling things inside and outside the club", outside is easy, disgruntled fans, me included, that don't believe anything that comes out of Ewood.

But what is the problem inside? Shaw, Agnew, or some of the players and staff who still belong to the Allardyce era?, who can tell.

The fact that certain players appear to no longer part of the future of the club suggests something. As far as I am concerned the players are paid to play for the club irrespective of personal loyalties, it isn't their job or role to get involved, lets face it, as soon as a better offer comes along they will be off anyway and stuff Blackburn Rovers and the fans who idolised them.

Remember a certain Alan Shearer anyone?

Givet, sulks at the drop of a hat, or a cheque for £75k, whatever comes first, Robinson, the best OPTA assists in the PL under Allardyce, now a pale shadow of his former self.

And lets look at Ryan Nelsen, too severely injured to play for Rovers when we desperately needed him, until he got the transfer away he wanted, did any of you see what he did for QPR today?

And I really do suspect the Allardyce engineered his own dismissal, and pocketed a nice fat cheque in the process, but that's football management for you.

I have criticised Shebby left right and centre but I will give him one concession, he has the balls to stand up and be counted, to actually talk to people who hate his guts because of who he represents, and I will tell you one thing, having had to do that in the past myself, that is one of the hardest things to do in life.

When he says "I did not, do not take training", you know what? I actually believe him, because the passion was there, it wasn't rehearsed, it was to me a genuine reaction from someone who is possibly just as **** off with things as we, the fans are.

The simple fact is there are certain newspapers, the Daily Mirror being one, who have never forgiven Rovers for taking the 94 title away from their beloved red scum, and have derided Rovers ever since, so anything they print means absolutely nothing to me, they love nothing better than twisting the knife.

This doesn't mean I trust Venky's, or for that matter Shebby, but at the end of the day they currently own the club I have supported for a huge chunk of my life.

The problem at Rovers is there is too much distrust and hatred, on both sides of the divide if we are honest, none of us know what Venky's want, I doubt very much that they understand it themselves yet.

As far as Shebby is concerned I still think he's a clown, but he took the red nose off last night, in the next few weeks he may just get rid of the wig, then the baggy pant's, you never know.

The rest in reality is up to you and me, the real fans, we have to stop fighting each other and support our club, give the players confidence by supporting them, give whatever management structure we end up with the same level of confidence by supporting them.

If we can't see our way past the current level of hatred then it won't be long before Rovers will be consigned to history, and that will make us, the fans, just as responsible as Venky's for our demise.
So your point is what exactly ? you seem happy to critcise the players, and the fans, and tell us to get behind whatever management structure we end up with !

Have you not been watching what has been happening at BRFC ? do you seriously not think something is wrong ?

In many years as a season ticket holder I've never seen such chaos, and I'm bloody sure it wasn't the players or the fans that created it, it was the owners of the club, their advisors, and the management they put in place.

As for Shebby Singh, the man is a deluded chancer and completely out of his depth, the one big thing he has presided over, the appointment of a new manager, was a total bloody fiasco.

So, I will continue to support BRFC, I will continue to support the team, but I will not be told to sit quietly and not have an opinion on whatever the arrogant and incompetent fools want to do with our club.

These forums are a long way from perfect but they are at least a place to debate these issues, and it would appear public outrage is something that Shebby Singh does actually take notice of.
Where have I said it is solely the fans and players to blame?

And I am certainly not suggesting anyone shouldn't voice an opinion, but I am entitled to put mine forward as well.

I think I have made it very clear that I want Venky's out and I want Shebby out.

My favourite, Blue striped 10 ball side pocket
Decent board and managers, mid-table premiership, same players with 4nobheads running the club, relegation.

Snookered.
Mid table premiership club same players??? we sold an entire first team.
Foul stroke, free ball, yellow stripe nine ball top corner pocket, red stripe 11 ball middle pocket, missed, your shot. I'm giving you a chance here. Remember there is no Extra Time Multi Ball on this pinball machine.
While mismanaging what they had,our cr@p management also found time to sell a load of talent and replace it with mainly inferior cheaper rubbish, even the decent players they found were misused.

Thats a nice double on the brown followed by potting the 8-ball gently into the side pocket.

Don't waste another 50p !
