Berg in the running to take over at Ewood

First published in Football Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

HENNING Berg is in the running to become Blackburn Rovers’ next manager as the club bid to end their month-long search this week.

Caretaker boss Eric Black is expected to have signed off his reign with Saturday’s 1-0 win over Watford, thanks to Jordan Rhodes’ late winner.

It is understood Berg, who helped Rovers win the Premier League in 1995, is set to be interviewed for the vacant managerial post today as the club run the rule over their final short list.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is also believed to feature highly on the list, as is current Huddersfield boss and ex Rover Simon Grayson.

Former Spurs number one Harry Redknapp has also indicated to people close to him he would be interested in discussing the role but it’s believed his expected demands will rule him out.

Berg became an Ewood Park favourite during two spells at Rovers, which saw him make more than 200 appearances, win the Premier League, help the club back into the top flight and skipper Rovers to league cup success.

The former Norwegian international, who was also part of Manchester United’s treble winning team in 1999, started his managerial career at Lyn, where he enjoyed three seasons.

The 43-year-old then enjoyed two years at the helm at Lillestrom before being dismissed in 2011. He has since been working as a pundit for Norwegian television.

Rovers’ caretaker boss Black admits he is still in the dark about the future as he continues to focus on fulfilling the role he has been asked to do.

Saturday’s victory, bringing back to back victories for Black, leaves Rovers fifth in the table and just two points away from the automatic promotion positions.

Black said: “It was vital that we won and built the momentum. It is building confidence as well.

“I thought we went up another level and I thought the players deserved enormous credit.

“They showed great patience, energy and concentration.

“Possibly this is my last game in charge. I really don’t know. That will be up to the people in the position of recruiting a new manager.

“I have done what I have been asked to do and will carry on until I am told not to.”

Rhodes’ late winner spared Colin Kazim-Richards blushes after the Turkish international had missed a 76th minute penalty – after taking the kick of Rhodes.

“I have to admit I had assumed Jordan was the penalty taker and when I turned round I saw Kaz was taking it. If we had drawn it becomes a bigger issue but thankfully we didn’t,” said Black.

Kazim impressed me with his first couple of games... Since then, every time I see him with the ball he is greedy as hell!! And rubbish with it too!

When the new manager comes in they need to sort this out with him, or I'd say don't play him at all... Id much prefer Gomez or rochina playing along side him.

I wouldn't be to unhappy if Berg got the job, he has played for and worked under some extremely good managers and the simple fact is we have to do something now to build on what Black has started, the team and fans are on very thin ice confidence wise.

OK he doesn't have a great track record, but he knows the right people in English football, and that might make him worth consideration.

Holloway would be my first choice but whether he could work for this crackpot regime is another thing, watching his frustration on the Saturday highlight program at Blackpool's inability to score makes my just a little worried what would happen when Shebby inevitably starts pulling strings he's not supposed to.

I suspect we would be looking for another manager PDQ as Holloway wouldn't stand for that, and lets face it, he could probably walk into any job in the Championship or lower Premier League.

Why on earth would a manager like Holloway want to come to the most dysfunctional club in British football history?

Well before the last two games I would have said get him playing at the back. Seriously if Berg is available we should bring him in as defensive coach. As for manager, he is just another speculative name. I guess we just wait and see.

Not really sure about Berg. Ok, he's managed, but in the Norwegian League and he didn't exactly set the world alight there. Left by mutual consent from Lyn and was sacked from Lillestrøm. I think we need someone who has experience of the English League.

By all accounts we were prepared to wait for OGS to finish his season at Molde, but he decided he was not ready to move his family, so it's a no go. Berg isn't such a bad choice, I remember prior to Allardyce he was a lot of peoples number one choice to become manager. I think Holloway would probably be my preferred choice currently.

Shabby and ex-players is simple. Shabby has a shrewdness despite his extremely irritating shooting his mouth off. Venkys are hugely unpopular, Shabby hasn't caught on with fans, most of whom don't like his manner as well as rightly lampooning his limited experience. Apppointing a popular former player seems to offer a quick popularity fix to ingratiate the owners and our global adviser with the fans. Of course fans are quite right to insist that actual experience as manager is more important.
For example, I'd go for Grayson, an average player but a promising manager rather than Berg - a marvellous player but so far a failed manager.

I just don't get this obsession with ex-players.

Henning Berg may well have been a good player but he has not exactly set the world alight in management.
In fact his record with Lyn and Lillestrom is pretty average / poor.

So how does he get on our shortlist?
I can only think that he is a cheap option because he has been out of work since October 2011.
Remember that compensation will need to be paid if we opt for either Holloway or Grayson for example.

Perhaps it is the fact that he is currently employed as a TV pundit that appeals to Shebby !!

The Board have now had 31 days to select our new manager.
Surely its not that difficult.
The farce continues.

On a different note, I do agree with Andy Cryers comments regarding Eric Black.
Whilst he would not be my choice as manager, I feel that he has done a decent job in tightening the defence and keeping us in touch with the leaders.

Dont forget Mr Singh you need to appoint someone that will reach the imagination of the fans and someone they can get behind. A dull appointment will reduce the gates even further. With all the different names being mentioned and no positive action taken after 4 weeks suggests you are really out of your depth and you have a big hang up with ex players thinking the fans will back them come what may. Well they wont if they dont perform. We need someone with a good tactical nowse, plenty of experience and have achieved promotion before and has not been recently sacked either. Come on Mr Singh get your finger out the gates are already 10,000 down on last season and the longer they stay away the less chance that they will come back.

Average at Blackpool? He took them from being almost a non-entity to Premiership team, with next to no money, a small fan base and a ground that was decaying at the time. Ok, they got relegated but Oyston refused to throw huge amounts of money at it, perhaps justifiably. Holloway almost got Blackpool promoted again last season, missing out in the play-offs. He's showed he can motivate, which is exactly what our squad needs right now, and he has a good nose for unearthing proper players for next to nowt.

The low attendance on Saturday indicates continuing disquiet amongst the fans at the way the club is being run. They stayed away in protest about the owners refusal to sack an unsuccessful and unpopular manager. But now it seems they are not returning as the boycott turns into a more permanent disenchantment with the actions and inactions of the owners. The club seems to have shot itself in the foot. Non-attendance at Ewood has become the norm for many. They have found other things to do. The club will have to work hard to attract them back as it seems success on the field in itself is not enough.

It has been a month in the waiting for another manager.

On a connected point, I do not believe Eric Black is the man for the job, but he has sorted the defence out and has got Scott Dann playing good football so I give him credit for that.

Holloway was appointed manager and a considerable transfer fund was put at his disopsal. the rest is history.
Simon Grayson is the man for me. I said if we couldn't get Arry, then Grayson is the man. His percentage win ratio is just as good as holloways with half the budget. He developed Jordan Rohdes so knows how to get the best out of him and with more than one club. He is an ex Rovers player and he has lots of management experience having had success at Blackpool Leeds and now Huddersfield. Unlike Holloway who has so far been a one club pony.

Nah you've got Holloway and grayson the wrong way round. Grayson has a better win ratio. Not sayin I would be dissappointed with any of them but if Arry won't come and Ole Gunnar wont come it has to be Grayson next and then Holloway.

Shaking in anticipation at just who will step into the breech of BRFC ?

HB is looking like a risk considering his record in management thus far. Now he has been mentioned Redknapp is the outstanding candidate for the shouting from the rooftops all action ambitious Venky's !

Can they, will they, pull this one off and appoint Redknapp ?

Holloway can do the job also.

So it goes................

I think we all still believe anybody would be better than Steve Kean, he set the bar so incredibly low that anyone who is merely 'complete 5hite' is still an improvement on Seve Kean.

The point is you should't just settle for compete ****, or even slightly better, you go and and get the best you can,the debate is about who, of those who might be interested, would be best for Rovers

Grayson did a decent job at Blackpool but he didn't get them promoted in the 3 years he held the reins. He was at Leeds, a so-called "big club" , for 4 years but didn't get them promoted. I doubt he will achieve promotion with Huddersfield. Good but not quite good enough for me.

Is it little wonder why Black should not be considered for the Manager's job with the comment.... "I have to admit I had assumed Jordan was the penalty taker". I see he learnt a lot from SK - the team being well organised, everyone knowing their job.

As for Andy Cryer reporting that the Club are running the rule over the final short-list, nice of them to tell us they actually drew one up!

Is Berg the right man? Yet again our 'absent' owners and their 'hired help' are looking at a Coach rather than a proper Manager (sorry Henning but where is your PL, Championship or even British experience?).

They don't learn do they? They think by bringing in an ex-Rovers player (from years ago) they can pacify the fans. No mention of Tony Parkes, then? and still no comment / news from Mrs. D and her boys! - perhaps they are still in shock (like the rest of us).

No, the point is that a lot of people on here are being unrealistic in their expectations of who the new manager should be and what experience they should have. The amount of vitriol being spouted at the mere mention of some candidates is absurd, especially when it's followed up with, "get Holloway in now!"

Why Holloway? He's found his fit with Blackpool but wasn't great everywhere else he's been. I think some people are forgetting that just because a manager is a success at one club it doesn't mean he'll be a success at another - and vice-versa.

Look at Hughes. Great with Wales and Rovers, mediocre at best ever since. Yes, Berg may not have been successful in Norway but it doesn't mean he won't do something with Rovers. After all, he probably knows English football a **** sight more than Norwegian, having spent the majority of his career over here.

Before anybody says we shouldn't be taking another risk after the whole Kean debacle, let me remind you that whoever is appointed isn't guaranteed to be a success, whether it's Redknapp, Holloway or Berg.

Average at Blackpool? He took them from being almost a non-entity to Premiership team, with next to no money, a small fan base and a ground that was decaying at the time. Ok, they got relegated but Oyston refused to throw huge amounts of money at it, perhaps justifiably. Holloway almost got Blackpool promoted again last season, missing out in the play-offs. He's showed he can motivate, which is exactly what our squad needs right now, and he has a good nose for unearthing proper players for next to nowt. With a decent budget, a good structure in place and support, I reckon he can get the job done. Shebby, he wants the job, now get him signed!
As far as I was aware, Holloway took over a very good team assembled by Simon Grayson, Grayson at the time was given no money at all yet still managed to get them promoted, When he was again refused funds grayson left and tony parkes took over. Holloway was appointed manager and a considerable transfer fund was put at his disopsal. the rest is history.
Simon Grayson is the man for me. I said if we couldn't get Arry, then Grayson is the man. His percentage win ratio is just as good as holloways with half the budget. He developed Jordan Rohdes so knows how to get the best out of him and with more than one club. He is an ex Rovers player and he has lots of management experience having had success at Blackpool Leeds and now Huddersfield. Unlike Holloway who has so far been a one club pony.
LISTEN SHEBBY GET GRAYSON IN NOW.
Grayson did a decent job at Blackpool but he didn't get them promoted in the 3 years he held the reins. He was at Leeds, a so-called "big club" , for 4 years but didn't get them promoted. I doubt he will achieve promotion with Huddersfield. Good but not quite good enough for me.
Grayson got Blackpool promoted 2007, he got leeds promoted 2010 and he got Huddersfield promoted 2012.
He certainly did. I can't understand why Grayson is going under everyones radar. The guy has performed very well at all the clubs he's been at and he is an ex Rovers player. For me he should be very high on the list. He's young, hungry for the next step, has been a success everywehre he has been and he has also worked for a bellend in Ken Bates so if he can work for that toothless jellied eel, he can work for anyone.

If Redknapp is interested what are you waiting for you global idiot. He will immediately add 7000 to the gate. W probably wouldn't lose another hoe game and we'd get promoted in a season when the Premier League money goes to the moon. GET REDKNAPP you nutters. Holloway is past it and has lost the respect of his players, Berg doesn't fit the criteria as he's failed at each club so there's no way he should get the job. If we wanted a young untainted manager we should have got Dougie Freeman.
Pesonally I'd leave Black in charge as caretaker and wait and see if Hughsey becomes available...he would need to come back home if he is sacked by QPR coz he wouldn't get another premier league job

One thing I am certain about is that the board should pick their man and stand by him the fans can have their say but thats all,if it were left to the fans we would have twenty candidates and no concensus.
Get the right man and everybody backs him and lets hope it's onwards and upwards in a better atmosphere than we have had for some time.

In fact greenscreener, Grayson has a better win ratio than Harry redknapp but that would have a few of them choking on their bacon butties.
Grayson In. The reason I like grayson is he just gets on with the job. No self serving tv interviews, no waffle, just gets on with it. It would be a shame for someone else to recognise his achievements and we go for some media friendly joker like Holloway. Don't get me wrong Holloway would also be an improvement on the Kean years but if we want the best, with english league experience then Grayson should be high on shebbys list.

This is what I mean about sky reporters.

Sky Sports understands Alex McLeish is the latest name to emerge as a candidate for the vacant manager's job at Blackburn Rovers.

The Scot has been out of the game since being sacked by Aston Villa in the summer after a season in which the club narrowly avoided Premier League relegation.

But McLeish has previously done well in management after guiding Birmingham City to promotion to the Premier League and winning the League Cup.


.
He has also enjoyed successful spells with Rangers and Scotland and that pedigree has seen him linked with Blackburn.

The Ewood Park club are still without a permanent boss after parting company with Steve Kean at the end of September.

Blackburn have been linked with former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp but McLeish's record at gaining promotion from the Championship is an attractive prospect.

Where is the quote from anyone at the club or Mcleish, talk about lazy journalism. Though I am just Walter Smith short on my most unlikely British Managers to take over at Ewood mentioned by Sky accumilator (with SKY BET) so lets see

I hope the McLeish story is false! SSN state one sentence - 'Blackburn have been linked with former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp but McLeish's record at gaining promotion from the Championship is an attractive prospect'. This sentence makes out that Mcleish is better than Redknapp. What the story doesn't say is that he got Birmingham relegated and Aston Villa nearly relegated. He is definitely not the man to inspire fans and players. STAY AWAY VENKY's!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suspect we would be looking for another manager PDQ as Holloway wouldn't stand for that, and lets face it, he could probably walk into any job in the Championship or lower Premier League.

Why on earth would a manager like Holloway want to come to the most dysfunctional club in British football history?

Hi - In answer to your final question.

Because we have one of the best footballing infrastructures and history of any club in the country that's why managers would want to come to us. Yes the present ownership would pose issues however a strong person with their own backroom support could work with that.

I think we all still believe anybody would be better than Steve Kean, he set the bar so incredibly low that anyone who is merely 'complete 5hite' is still an improvement on Seve Kean.

The point is you should't just settle for compete ****, or even slightly better, you go and and get the best you can,the debate is about who, of those who might be interested, would be best for Rovers
No, the point is that a lot of people on here are being unrealistic in their expectations of who the new manager should be and what experience they should have. The amount of vitriol being spouted at the mere mention of some candidates is absurd, especially when it's followed up with, "get Holloway in now!"

Why Holloway? He's found his fit with Blackpool but wasn't great everywhere else he's been. I think some people are forgetting that just because a manager is a success at one club it doesn't mean he'll be a success at another - and vice-versa.

Look at Hughes. Great with Wales and Rovers, mediocre at best ever since. Yes, Berg may not have been successful in Norway but it doesn't mean he won't do something with Rovers. After all, he probably knows English football a **** sight more than Norwegian, having spent the majority of his career over here.

Before anybody says we shouldn't be taking another risk after the whole Kean debacle, let me remind you that whoever is appointed isn't guaranteed to be a success, whether it's Redknapp, Holloway or Berg.
If that was your point then thats what you should have said.
I did say that. You obviously needed it explaining in layman's terms.

We aren't as glamorous a prospect as some fans seem to think we are.

You really think this?

Apart from the odd premiership job, for most are taken by the worlds top managers a position at Blackburn Rovers with the position they are in and the relative resources available to them is a very very glamorous post.

So a good prospective manager in 6 months time - is potentially back in the premiership with us - does not see us as a potentially brilliant post.

At this moment in time srvp28 I beg to differ.

Average at Blackpool? He took them from being almost a non-entity to Premiership team, with next to no money, a small fan base and a ground that was decaying at the time. Ok, they got relegated but Oyston refused to throw huge amounts of money at it, perhaps justifiably. Holloway almost got Blackpool promoted again last season, missing out in the play-offs. He's showed he can motivate, which is exactly what our squad needs right now, and he has a good nose for unearthing proper players for next to nowt. With a decent budget, a good structure in place and support, I reckon he can get the job done. Shebby, he wants the job, now get him signed!
As far as I was aware, Holloway took over a very good team assembled by Simon Grayson, Grayson at the time was given no money at all yet still managed to get them promoted, When he was again refused funds grayson left and tony parkes took over. Holloway was appointed manager and a considerable transfer fund was put at his disopsal. the rest is history.
Simon Grayson is the man for me. I said if we couldn't get Arry, then Grayson is the man. His percentage win ratio is just as good as holloways with half the budget. He developed Jordan Rohdes so knows how to get the best out of him and with more than one club. He is an ex Rovers player and he has lots of management experience having had success at Blackpool Leeds and now Huddersfield. Unlike Holloway who has so far been a one club pony.
LISTEN SHEBBY GET GRAYSON IN NOW.
Grayson did a decent job at Blackpool but he didn't get them promoted in the 3 years he held the reins. He was at Leeds, a so-called "big club" , for 4 years but didn't get them promoted. I doubt he will achieve promotion with Huddersfield. Good but not quite good enough for me.
Grayson got Blackpool promoted 2007, he got leeds promoted 2010 and he got Huddersfield promoted 2012.
He certainly did. I can't understand why Grayson is going under everyones radar. The guy has performed very well at all the clubs he's been at and he is an ex Rovers player. For me he should be very high on the list. He's young, hungry for the next step, has been a success everywehre he has been and he has also worked for a bellend in Ken Bates so if he can work for that toothless jellied eel, he can work for anyone.
Something we agree on there then.

No idea why Merlin got it so wrong, perhaps he work for Venkys ?
I was talking about getting a team promoted from Championship to Premiership, which is the hardest goal to achieve. Instead you've twisted what I said and spun in favour your man Grayson. His win ratio is good and Leeds were wrong to sack him perhaps but I'm not sure he's got it in him to go to the next level. Only time will tell. If I work for Venkys, perhaps you're Simon Grayson's PR agent?

Hi MxMav

A little harsh

Yes he is full of his own self importance, his pushing of Rhodes away on Staurday to take the penalty and his nonchalent run up were all classic examples, however, to be fair to him he is pretty strong and good at holding the ball up bringing other players into the game, Unfortunately due to the odious ones and Blacks buying policy we have potentially too many centre forwards but noone to supply them from wide positions with pace flair and beating of full backs.

The last truly effective right winger we had was Stuart Ripley. Brett Emerton was a great Rovers servant but frustrated so many times with his inability to beat a full back and cut the ball back from the byeline. As for the left wing Jason Wilcox was the last real true left winger that would take on and beat full backs.

In-fighting not only amongst fans but even the people tasked with the job of appointing a new manager. Owners who not only know nothing about how to run a football club but are also unable to agree on key issues. Rumoured interference in team selection and frequent flying to and from India. Answerable to a TV pundit.

Yeah, you're righ, very glamorous.

Average at Blackpool? He took them from being almost a non-entity to Premiership team, with next to no money, a small fan base and a ground that was decaying at the time. Ok, they got relegated but Oyston refused to throw huge amounts of money at it, perhaps justifiably. Holloway almost got Blackpool promoted again last season, missing out in the play-offs. He's showed he can motivate, which is exactly what our squad needs right now, and he has a good nose for unearthing proper players for next to nowt. With a decent budget, a good structure in place and support, I reckon he can get the job done. Shebby, he wants the job, now get him signed!
As far as I was aware, Holloway took over a very good team assembled by Simon Grayson, Grayson at the time was given no money at all yet still managed to get them promoted, When he was again refused funds grayson left and tony parkes took over. Holloway was appointed manager and a considerable transfer fund was put at his disopsal. the rest is history.
Simon Grayson is the man for me. I said if we couldn't get Arry, then Grayson is the man. His percentage win ratio is just as good as holloways with half the budget. He developed Jordan Rohdes so knows how to get the best out of him and with more than one club. He is an ex Rovers player and he has lots of management experience having had success at Blackpool Leeds and now Huddersfield. Unlike Holloway who has so far been a one club pony.
LISTEN SHEBBY GET GRAYSON IN NOW.
Grayson did a decent job at Blackpool but he didn't get them promoted in the 3 years he held the reins. He was at Leeds, a so-called "big club" , for 4 years but didn't get them promoted. I doubt he will achieve promotion with Huddersfield. Good but not quite good enough for me.
Grayson got Blackpool promoted 2007, he got leeds promoted 2010 and he got Huddersfield promoted 2012.
He certainly did. I can't understand why Grayson is going under everyones radar. The guy has performed very well at all the clubs he's been at and he is an ex Rovers player. For me he should be very high on the list. He's young, hungry for the next step, has been a success everywehre he has been and he has also worked for a bellend in Ken Bates so if he can work for that toothless jellied eel, he can work for anyone.
Something we agree on there then.

No idea why Merlin got it so wrong, perhaps he work for Venkys ?
I was talking about getting a team promoted from Championship to Premiership, which is the hardest goal to achieve. Instead you've twisted what I said and spun in favour your man Grayson. His win ratio is good and Leeds were wrong to sack him perhaps but I'm not sure he's got it in him to go to the next level. Only time will tell. If I work for Venkys, perhaps you're Simon Grayson's PR agent?
When in a hole its always best to stop digging.
Holloway also took relegation very easily and is that good he managed to keep a good bunch of players below us in the league.
Grayson has never been relegated and his team, although below us has just sold his best player, Jordan Rhodes, to us and he is still doing very well in the league.
No brainer for me Grayson all day long. Ole Gunnar would be before him and Harry redknapp too, but harry only because of his name. His win ratio is worse than graysons and look at the budgets he's had to work with. Also his dog demands very high wages.

We are a Championship team with an unstable set-up from top to bottom. We aren't as glamorous a prospect as some fans seem to think we are. Lets get behind whoever is appointed and stop moaning because our individual preferences aren't being fulfilled.
I think we all still believe anybody would be better than Steve Kean, he set the bar so incredibly low that anyone who is merely 'complete 5hite' is still an improvement on Seve Kean.

The point is you should't just settle for compete ****, or even slightly better, you go and and get the best you can,the debate is about who, of those who might be interested, would be best for Rovers
No, the point is that a lot of people on here are being unrealistic in their expectations of who the new manager should be and what experience they should have. The amount of vitriol being spouted at the mere mention of some candidates is absurd, especially when it's followed up with, "get Holloway in now!"

Why Holloway? He's found his fit with Blackpool but wasn't great everywhere else he's been. I think some people are forgetting that just because a manager is a success at one club it doesn't mean he'll be a success at another - and vice-versa.

Look at Hughes. Great with Wales and Rovers, mediocre at best ever since. Yes, Berg may not have been successful in Norway but it doesn't mean he won't do something with Rovers. After all, he probably knows English football a **** sight more than Norwegian, having spent the majority of his career over here.

Before anybody says we shouldn't be taking another risk after the whole Kean debacle, let me remind you that whoever is appointed isn't guaranteed to be a success, whether it's Redknapp, Holloway or Berg.
If that was your point then thats what you should have said.
I did say that. You obviously needed it explaining in layman's terms.
No, but I will type slowly for your benefit ....

I took exception to the statement you actually made in your second sentence. You expressed your opinion that all Rovers fans were changing their view regarding Steve Kean. Your statement was a gross generalisation and incorrect.

Could we expect any team Manager to create a promotion team from this mess, and then be successful in the Premiership ?

On a connected point, I do not believe Eric Black is the man for the job, but he has sorted the defence out and has got Scott Dann playing good football so I give him credit for that.

Nah you've got Holloway and grayson the wrong way round. Grayson has a better win ratio. Not sayin I would be dissappointed with any of them but if Arry won't come and Ole Gunnar wont come it has to be Grayson next and then Holloway.
Fair enough RUinsane, I suppose that Grayson has proven himself more than Hollaway in the respect of developing teams.

The Scot has been out of the game since being sacked by Aston Villa in the summer after a season in which the club narrowly avoided Premier League relegation.

I don't know if they are interviewing him or not, all I know is they should be.
He's exactly what Venkys are looking for. I just hope they don't bring in someone like Sherwood with no experience at all. Its not what we need. We need a steady away manager with a good tactical head. We don't need one that just opens his mouth for the sake of it. We had kean doing that for 2 years. We need someone we can trust, someone with experience but can get the best out of what we have.
Its dragging on too long but fortunately we are still within reach of the top 2.

No, the point is that a lot of people on here are being unrealistic in their expectations of who the new manager should be and what experience they should have.

On the winger front i am suprised that riberio has been pushed onto the bench , i thought he was fantastic in the first few games and was getting past his man, and the Olssons are both capable of playing that role, not sure why EB has benched them.

I also think if we wanted to pay big money to someone like Harry then we would have to offer it as a hefty promotion bonus, it would be worth offering him £5-10m for promotion to get a chunk of the massive new TV money next season. If he doesn't succeed then we don't have to pay it do we?! I think if we made Grayson feel special enough (i.e said we want you over Harry Redknapp) he would push the move through, just like Jordan Rhodes did. The connection to the club and the real chance of being a Prem manager would be too much to resist.

That said any manager would have to try and block out the massive negative of the Venkys and Shebby lurking in the background......

on the side discussion of wingers, the problem we have is we don't give anyone a run in the team and so they are so scared of making a mistake and getting dropped they don't try anything creative, we need to say to these wide lads, just go for it and have a try, really want Simon to get a run in the team as well. Also at least Ruben has a go at goal once in a while as opposed to passing it back across the half way line all the time!

I agree with the Holloway sceptics - funny but failing now. Grayson has the credentials for me but he seems to drifted out in the betting so perhaps something negative has happened. Def not Berg no track record. Solskjaer seems to just keep himself in the reckoning bettingwise. Perhaps they could keep Black until S is free. Hughes could still be good and he might feel like cutting his losses.

Singh wants to keep his £400,000 a year job - as does Hendry - so the club will be stuck with someone who is a bum chum of Hendry. Therefore the runners and riders will be:- Keith Hill, Garry Flitcroft, Henning Berg, David May, Tim Sherwood, Billy McKinlay, JA, Victor Chandler, 'any of his kids'...and the landlord of The Taps in Lytham.

The only thing worth betting on is that Black will still be manager on Saturday against Palace! "Venky Time" means that their promise of appointing at some point this week, could be the week after, end of November or even into December!

Personally, I would prefer an experienced manager and my top 3 would be:

1. Harry (attacking football)
2. Holloway (concede 2 but score 3)
3. McCarthy (boring but effective)

If we were to go for a young inexperienced manager, my top 3 would be:

1. Ole Gunnar
2. Karl Robinson
3. Garry Flitcroft with Matt Jansen

Everyone has their opinion but whoever it is will be 100% better than having that lying, arrogant, useless **** that was Steve Kean and we are all united in that thought. We need to remind ourselves that a few months back we were struggling to believe that Kean would ever leave while these muppets own the club. Lets be thankful that he has gone and we all need to get behind the next gaffer - whoever it may be and whenever it may be! For now, Black's doing his best and a win on Saturday will be 12pts from 7 games so hopefully we'll still be in and around the play offs by the time the new gaffer comes in.

Pull your finger out Shebby - if Redknapp IS interested, tell Mrs D to get her cheque book out!

Like the idea of a big bonus plan, I think Venkys would be happy with that.

On the winger debate I've never seen any explanation why Simon can't even get on the bench. Anybody seen him in the Reserves ?

Rochina deserves a decent run of games but he has to be told to stay forward, supporting the Striker and taking people on around their last third. We know he gets caught in possession but we don't want him doing that in our half.

If he doesn't succeed then we don't have to pay it do we?! I think if we made Grayson feel special enough (i.e said we want you over Harry Redknapp) he would push the move through, just like Jordan Rhodes did. The connection to the club and the real chance of being a Prem manager would be too much to resist. That said any manager would have to try and block out the massive negative of the Venkys and Shebby lurking in the background...... on the side discussion of wingers, the problem we have is we don't give anyone a run in the team and so they are so scared of making a mistake and getting dropped they don't try anything creative, we need to say to these wide lads, just go for it and have a try, really want Simon to get a run in the team as well.

The low attendance on Saturday indicates continuing disquiet amongst the fans at the way the club is being run.

Non-attendance at Ewood has become the norm for many. They have found other things to do. The club will have to work hard to attract them back as it seems success on the field in itself is not enough.
Very true but have you recently watched The Club That Jack Built? It honestly made me feel differently. It meant so much to him that we have a duty to keep our stake in that club, not retreat and abandon it and surrender to Venkys as we are and always will be the only link between Jack Walker and Rovers.

Right there Smelly , rumours have been circulating for a while that Hughes is on borrowed time at QPR. Theres some logic to the view that Fernanez is ready to sack him and install Harry Rednapp. He's only stalling right now because he thinks Rovers might pay some compensation. Harry put the word out he was interested in talking to Rovers to try and encourage Fernandez to bite the bullet.

We know Hughes has a staff that can get a team fit and organised. Most reports are also saying QPR's best players this season are Hoillett and Nelsen. Would they be welcome back with him ?

Agree Merlin....Hughes is not coming back, even if his job is in danger he would wait to be sacked first for the compensation. He jumped ship at Fulham when he thought he had the Villa job all lined-up and then that all fell through for him. So he will bide his time at QPR for sure.

Don't think that Alex McLeish is a prospect either.....there is no money going on him hardly and also surprisingly no movement for Grayson who I thought would be backed down by now.

My feeling is that Redknapp would be the first choice but they cant get him here and that Venkys are now swaying strongly towards Holloway.

Grayson and/or OGS would be my next in-lines if they cant get harry and then maybe Holloway. Then perhaps Berg as a fifth or sixth choice?

Mick McCarthy's, Harry Redknapp's and Mark Hughes's ratios stand up well against all others because a large part was played in the PL and Alan Shearer wasn't given ample opportunity at Newcastle to make a difference. Any other club I would say no for Shearer...but he could def get fans back and generate some excitement.

Grayson...another chum of Hendry. Says it all coming from you.

As for MH being 'IN' at QPR....for how long??

Sorry missed out Alex Mcliesh win ratio 46.6%, this can be ignored as he managed Rangers in Mickey mouse league and Henning Berg win ratio 35% in a mickey mouse league. which is also why Ole Gunnar with his 65% win ratio is too much of a risk.
Oh and lets not Forget Ian Holloway win ratio 37.88% and lets go the whole hog Sam Allardyce win ratio 40.69% Kenny Dalglish win ratio 54.14% and Ian Dowie 38.9%

What is wrong with Shebby Singh Henningburg should not even be being considered as he is an absolute flop as a manager. Why on earth are we considering failures or people with no experience just because they are ex players. This is crazy, Bolton have got sorted and Burnley's target is a lot better than the people we are considering. Are we not trying to get back to the premier this season Shebby Sing is showing that he is absolutely clueless Derek Shaw needs to flex his muscle before Singh ruins our club. I am flabergasted at what this club is putting the fans through. Nearly five weeks to sign a flop..We need at least someone with a good track record.

I have not a clue as to what type of Manager they are looking for based on the leaks that are coming out. In fact if you have not been linked with the job it must be worrying because so many have.

Tugay & Souness for me but Grayson would be a good choice

Mick mcarhtys win ratio in the premier league is like steve keans. otherwise he'd still be in it.
Typical clueless comment by you Grayson is not another chum of Hendry he barely knows the guy but Shearer is. mark hughes win ratio was excellent at Rovers and as good as any we have mentioned elsewhere. Hughes and his backroom staff are on megamoney at QPR. Hand on heart, if you have one, do you think, given their track record, they would hire hughes and his entire backroom staff?
My advice is please don't operate any heavy machinery whilst you are on that medication.

Matt Newcastle - I agree with you on Ripley but I think Duff did a pretty good job on the left wing at running at full backs and beating them? I was all for Holloway getting the job (Harry would be great but can't see it happening) but comments on here have started to sway me to Simon Grayson, the fact he would get the best out of JR is a big factor as he is the key to us getting promoted #QUALITY
Great point
I cannot understand though why wide players with the ability to beat players is not a key factor now with Rhodes who has admitted in the article today that he is not used to playing with his back to goal but running onto opportunities. With teams coming to put 10 men behind the ball I think we need a greater threat from the flanks.

Rochina who I thought played well in the middle did not like it when he was asked to play wide for the last fifteen minutes and drifted constantly into the midfield role although I do think he could beat players out wide I don't think he has the self discipline to play out there and track back to help whoever is playing LB

It has been Black's change in tactics that has resulted in us conceding fewer goals rather any brilliance from our 'defensive coach'. Both our full backs were exposed on numerous times on Saturday, luckily Watford never had anyone in the centre.

WWhe will this shower of idiots come clean and tell the loyal supports of this once Great Club what is really going on behind the doors of Ewood Park. How is it that it is taking so long to sign a new manager, once again we are all being treated like fools.

Is the Old Scottish story teller of untruths (Keane) still pulling the strings behind the closed doors of Ewood, why is so difficult to sign a manager, may be its the same reason we can't get a shirt sponsor,

nNo one wants to be associated with The Venkys or the mob of cowboys who think they can manage a football club, what can loyal supports of this Once Great Club do to rid OUR belovered Rovers of this Shower of Idiots.

How many more Names will be up for the job as Manager of Rovers, and how much longer will the Telegraph be the mouth piece for the Venkys and this SHabby outfit at Ewood,

Andy Cryer stop sitting on the fence, and who feeds you these stories from Ewood tell me Andy how many names have been bounded around for manager, Whou not ask who ever your contact is to stop feeding you B/S.A his nd An

This is what I mean about sky reporters. Sky Sports understands Alex McLeish is the latest name to emerge as a candidate for the vacant manager's job at Blackburn Rovers. The Scot has been out of the game since being sacked by Aston Villa in the summer after a season in which the club narrowly avoided Premier League relegation. But McLeish has previously done well in management after guiding Birmingham City to promotion to the Premier League and winning the League Cup. . He has also enjoyed successful spells with Rangers and Scotland and that pedigree has seen him linked with Blackburn. The Ewood Park club are still without a permanent boss after parting company with Steve Kean at the end of September. Blackburn have been linked with former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp but McLeish's record at gaining promotion from the Championship is an attractive prospect. Where is the quote from anyone at the club or Mcleish, talk about lazy journalism. Though I am just Walter Smith short on my most unlikely British Managers to take over at Ewood mentioned by Sky accumilator (with SKY BET) so lets see
SSN throws McLeish into the mix?

Handy way of getting a bit more action on Sky Bet, don't you think?

Cynical? Qui, moi?

Have you noticed how many reports refer to "fans' reaction" or "fan power" being the reason we haven't gone for so-and-so?

They seem be suggesting the fans have an input into who will be appointed. Looking at some of the candidates they are considering appointing given the general opinion we need experience, nothing could be further from the truth.

Harry Redknapp is a best choice and he is from the same land. So the respect as Manager will be there.

I got a news that Mardona - is linked with the Ewood, If Blackburn fans agree for a chairsmatic person to lead the club, he is avalible. But he act like a bafoon in all the games and very nasty with ground staff and referees . During his last manager assingment he invited lots of trouble in that club and he quit because of controversies.

But I like him, he is an amazing player duing his period and he is a legend and Icon for millions.

What a shocker....another chum of Hendry's to keep him in a job. I wonder how many of the decent managers who have been approached, have responded by saying they won't work with someone who gambles away old people's life savings. Singh wants to keep his £400,000 a year job - as does Hendry - so the club will be stuck with someone who is a bum chum of Hendry. Therefore the runners and riders will be:- Keith Hill, Garry Flitcroft, Henning Berg, David May, Tim Sherwood, Billy McKinlay, JA, Victor Chandler, 'any of his kids'...and the landlord of The Taps in Lytham.

IMO...THE SOONER THESE FREELOADING SCUMBAGS ARE OUT OF THE CLUB THE BETTER. JACK HAD HENDRY'S CARD MARKED.
Are these players not the same players who won Blackburn the prem?

It is not right that Henning Berg did a poor job in Lillestrom. He lost his best key players when lillestrom chose to sell because of the poor economy and several players were injured.
