Blackburn Rovers Blog: We can turn corner under Berg

First published in Football Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Reporter

I would like to start this week by responding to some constructive ‘feedback’ given to me via Twitter after last week’s column.

Following last week’s article, in which I wrote that Henning Berg’s start had been encouraging despite a lack of victory – especially the performance in the home game against Birmingham – I received the following message from someone who appears to support our beloved claret neighbours: “Poor article you’ve done in Telegraph today, didn’t you like Kean after his first three games? How do you know his settlement has been sorted?”

Not really sure where he was going with the last line, but no, I didn’t like Kean after three games.

This stock criticism from anyone outside of Ewood Park is becoming tiresome.

Steve Kean was promoted to manager with no experience after a very accomplished and successful manager had been unfairly sacked by the owners.

He spent two years turning us from a safe mid-table side into relegation fodder, finally realising the nightmare at the end of last season when we dropped into the Championship.

On top of that, he stubbornly refused to acknowledge how bad things had got, and seemed oblivious to the unhappiness on the terraces surrounding his continued employment.

Now we have a manager with experience, who has replaced someone who was disliked.

On top of that, things appear to be improving under the new man on the pitch and players who were being frozen out for no apparent reason – Rochina to name one – have been brought back into the fold and impressed.

On to more important matters, and Saturday’s much-needed win was a very pleasant sight.

Peterborough are a poor side, to put it mildly, but you still have to beat them.

Under the previous regime, when going up against sides we really ought to beat, there was always the worry we wouldn’t do enough.

We would give teams too much respect and allow them to get in the game, but on Saturday we took the game to Posh and destroyed them.

It is also pleasing to see Danny Murphy’s improvement.

It has been embarrassing at times listening to the boo boys give him a hard time when he under-performed.

Yes, you can understand the frustration when he was brought here on reportedly huge wages with massive expectations, but to boo him is just wrong.

Fingers crossed we may be turning a corner. Bring on the Millwall.

As a team, Blackburn is improved on their performance, this tempo need to continue until we are in the “top of the league”
The Experience of Murphy in the team is the key, because he can control ball and passes in the center with maximum time. But some game need more pace, then we need to replace him quickly and get back into the game with higher quality.
Ruben,Rhodes,Gomes can play together in the first half and create the impact. All the Best on next game. If Givet is ready to play, then Adam henley can get rest.

Why would you rest a pacey fullback in Henley for Givet whom on numerous occasions has been found wanting at fullback. Don't get me wrong Givet should be brought back in at centre half but to rest one of the more promising players on past performances I struggle to understand that.
The improvement from the side is there for all to see, bring on Millwall on Saturday and heres hoping for 3 more valuable points.

"to boo him is just wrong..."

No.
It's absolutely not.

In general terms I don't agree with booing our own players, but us fans have every right to boo or criticise a player who is underperforming.

If the player has anything about him, he will buck his ideas up and start pulling his weight - as Murphy has started to do.

Most contradictary statement i've ever read. Have you not put one and one together yet Andy and realised its THANKS to the 'boo boys' (aka 30% of the crowd) that Danny Murphy has improved? No doubt some "im bluer than you" fan will comment on this and say "ITS BERG, HES TRANSFORMED HIM, BOOING HELPS NOBODY". Then I will remind you that, if indeed the booing was counter productive, how come hes turned the corner? According to most of you liberal fans 'booing is awful and will destroy his confidence', yet here we are with Danny performing well after being boo'd and dropped, odd eh, must ALL be due to Berg's fantastic man management.

I agree with GAZHAY, Givet should be brought back in for Hanley (who is not good enough imo), Henley should retain his place in the squad.

Exactly. It rather annoys me when people write articles expressing thier opinion as hard fact and that you are somehow scum if you don't agree.
It seems to me nowadays in most walks of life, if you express an opinion that is liberal or left wing its considered "morally correct" and all other opinions are rubbished as racist, fashist or moronic. I think we are one of the only countries in the world which do this which essentially has the upshot of removing the balls from the british bulldog.

Andy - either write proper unbais articles or get onto the street with your left wing pals and protest about how much funding the govement have cut from your local library.

not sure you can take the credit either MXMave, the booing was going on for sometime and did not seem to make much difference at all, Murphy just seemed to be on a slide, Eric Black dropped him, Berg has brought him back and at this momement he is playing well. The booing let him know fans thought he was under performing but its a bit of a leap to dismiss berg and take credit for the improvement in recent weeks.


Boo if you want but if you are going to dismiss those who say it demotivates a player as left wing liberals , then expect others to dismiss your it motivates the player views as "old fashioned, it never did me any harm when me dad clipped me round the earhole" clap trap.

Nutter, the only thing I will say for you is at least you're consistent.
I'm not bothered if its etched on the walls of the great pyramid, if he hasn't been charged, prosecuted, found guilty and sentenced you can't accuse him of being a women, plural, beater. In this great country of ours you are innocent until PROVEN otherwise. This is to stop a lynch mob mentality otherwise we would have anarchy. If and when Hendry is arrested charged and convicted, then you can call him a woman beater but until then, just talk about the football, the round thing with air in it.

Anyway back to the article in question.
You should know by now that every Rovers fan has the god given right to boo the living daylights out of whoever takes the field. This is the only surefire way we can guarantee relegation. Did you not know that we Rovers fans are as dumb as they come. We love to pay our twenty quid and boo from the very first second thus achieving a broken willed team. This is what we set out to achieve. Broken will after broken will, relegation after relegation. Then when we find ourselves in the unibond premier we can sit back and smile to ourselves at our wonderous achievement. Sometimes I wonder how thick some of you monkeys really are. Have you not learnt from last year??? So come on lets Boo the lads to relegation again like you succeded in doing last year. The Dingles loved every minute of how thick you were.
I hope this post makes you fume, you lot made me fume by booing the likes of Andrews when there was nothing wrong with him. Its no wonder the Yak naffed off. Who needs supporters like that.
Another thing, Kean out fans back!!! well you can come back now he went weeks ago. So not only are we a booing bunch of morons, it appears we are a bunch of premier league glory hunters as well.
Cue the excuses

So your saying that the booing is that got us relegated not the hopeless excuse of a so called manager Steve Kean and owners who didn't even no that relegation was a possibility.

Nope, not saying that at all, just saying it was a contributing factor, and anyone who says it wasn't has got mud between their ears.

Have you not learnt from last year??? So come on lets Boo the lads to relegation again like you succeded in doing last year. The Dingles loved every minute of how thick you were. I hope this post makes you fume, you lot made me fume by booing the likes of Andrews when there was nothing wrong with him. Its no wonder the Yak naffed off. Who needs supporters like that. Another thing, Kean out fans back!!! well you can come back now he went weeks ago. So not only are we a booing bunch of morons, it appears we are a bunch of premier league glory hunters as well. Cue the excuses
So your saying that the booing is that got us relegated not the hopeless excuse of a so called manager Steve Kean and owners who didn't even no that relegation was a possibility. Selling key players and sacking a manager that could pretty much guarantee mid table finish but it's the booing that got us relegated some how I don't think so
Nope, not saying that at all, just saying it was a contributing factor, and anyone who says it wasn't has got mud between their ears.
there has been booing at football matches for as long as i can remember but other teams havent been relegate how can u think that booing the team as more of an affect then selling key player n sacking a proven manager so saying the booing is that relegated us just isn't true even a fool can see that

You should know by now that every Rovers fan has the god given right to boo the living daylights out of whoever takes the field. This is the only surefire way we can guarantee relegation. Did you not know that we Rovers fans are as dumb as they come. We love to pay our twenty quid and boo from the very first second thus achieving a broken willed team.
