Blackburn Rovers wait on Dunn fitness

First published in Football

BLACKBURN Rovers will assess the fitness of David Dunn and Fabio Nunes ahead of Sunday’s East Lancashire derby at Burnley.

Dunn has been on the sidelines recently with a calf injury but is hoping to return for the derby, having scored the winner when the sides last played three seasons ago.

And Rovers boss Henning Berg this morning also revealed that Nunes is ‘getting closer’ to a comeback from injury.

You better be fit pie-boy, Sunday won't be a day for sitting around less you on the bench - which you probably will be big you don't make the grade.

BBC News: UK Retailer Primark has reported a dramatic rise in demand for gentleman's underpants at the Blackburn department store in the week leading up to the derby game with Burnley. A Primark spokesperson claims the company has never seen anything like it in 10 years of trading. "The Blackburn townsfolk are obviously feeling the nerves kicking in ahead of Sunday's game, and accident's do happen". The rush on underpants shows no signs of slowing as emergency y-fronts are being shipped in by the lorry load.

After what we have seen over the last couple of games let's hope he can start. At least Dunny will have some passion and know what playing and beating the dingles is all about. Last time we played them in the championship at dingley Dell, prior to the infamous let's smash our own town centre up and cause £5m of improvement single rampage, there was only really Dunny and Andy Payton who were really up for it and knew what it ment to win. He could be the deciding factor on Sunday because he is certainly going to want that win.
Come on you blues
Burnley town centre needs a spruce up, give the Dingles an excuse to renovate it again

Dunny has more passion for this game than the likes of Formica, Rochina and co.

Unfortunately he will not last the game but if we could get 60 mins from him and then bring on Rochina to torment the tiring dingles that could work....the question is can he last 60 mins!!

So the whole game from Rovers point of view now rests on one hour or less depending on the injury,no match practice Dunn,to inspire the other players who are well paid proffesoinals,to put a shift for once as they have not done for the last one hundred and eighty minutes,a lazy unfit lot who should be ashamed of themselves.

Oh dear. Things are beginning to look a bit ominous. Before the Millwall game I was confidently thinking that the next two games would bring us six points and push us back into promotion contention.

But two poor home performances and four goals conceded have shattered that confidence. I sincerely hope Henning Berg can turn things around, but I am beginning to have doubts.

We should have begun to see his influence by now, but in all honesty we look a bunch of misfits and not-good-enoughs, lacking quality and conviction. I know Berg has inherited this lot and I know that it would take some time to turn things round, but will he be able to?

I fully expected to see some backroom changes by now but has HB been told he will have to work with what he has got – or, even worse, does he not have his own trusted ‘team’? I don’t know what departures there have been since Sam went, but we seem woefully lacking on the coaching and training side.

The stamina has gone, the work rate has gone, the fitness has gone. No method, no fire, no punch. A pitiful midfield – and still seriously lacking in defensive ability, even though that problem has been staring us in the face for two years. Where is Gael Givet? Is he injured – or is he another victim of the old guard purge?

We are at sixes and sevens, unbalanced, careless. We have one of the top strikers in the league and we can’t get the ball to him. Peterborough apart, he is feeding off scraps.

How much influence are our deaf and dumb owners in Pune still wielding? Was HB the only applicant who was prepared to sell his soul to them? For what my voice was worth I pleaded with the Rao brothers and Shebby Singh in personal letters not to take another gamble with inexperience for reasons clear to everyone except them. The decision, I warned, could be their last chance to get one thing right after two years of calamitous mistakes.

Here we are hoping for the return of a ‘saviour’ in David Dunn for a derby game that would be highly embarrassing to lose when, in reality, if he is ‘fit’ he may not last much more than half an hour. How desperate can we get? I’ve been a great admirer of David down the years, but we have to face up to the fact that injuries have taken their toll and we may now only see cameo appearances from him.

The miserable defeat by Bolton may well be a defining point in our season. Chilling echoes of last season when the 2-1 defeat then was the beginning of the end of our life in the Premiership.

The last six matches have produced 5 points – W1 D2 L3. One win against a floundering side with massive internal disciplinary problems. Fast forward to the end of the season and that, if continued, equates to approximately 50 points (28 plus a further 22), which could be uncomfortably flirting with relegation again.

Berg has to turn our fortunes around completely in the next six matches – W4 D1 L1 or W4 D2 L0. To grab an automatic promotion spot with well over 80 points we can now afford to lose only another four or five games out of the next 27. A big ask and, on current form, highly unlikely.

Maybe Berg can sort it all out – but hopes are fading for this season. In that case, more Venkey’s chickens will be coming home to roost with the first £80million slipping through their fingers.

If relegation didn’t, then perhaps that will bring them to their senses.

Excellent post and spot on with your observations. I don't think anything will bring Venkys to their senses. They've had all the advice in the world from people who know the game but listened to no-one.

We should have begun to see his influence by now, but in all honesty we look a bunch of misfits and not-good-enoughs, lacking quality and conviction. I know Berg has inherited this lot and I know that it would take some time to turn things round, but will he be able to? I fully expected to see some backroom changes by now but has HB been told he will have to work with what he has got – or, even worse, does he not have his own trusted ‘team’? I don’t know what departures there have been since Sam went, but we seem woefully lacking on the coaching and training side. The stamina has gone, the work rate has gone, the fitness has gone. No method, no fire, no punch. A pitiful midfield – and still seriously lacking in defensive ability, even though that problem has been staring us in the face for two years. Where is Gael Givet? Is he injured – or is he another victim of the old guard purge? We are at sixes and sevens, unbalanced, careless. We have one of the top strikers in the league and we can’t get the ball to him. Peterborough apart, he is feeding off scraps. How much influence are our deaf and dumb owners in Pune still wielding? Was HB the only applicant who was prepared to sell his soul to them? For what my voice was worth I pleaded with the Rao brothers and Shebby Singh in personal letters not to take another gamble with inexperience for reasons clear to everyone except them. The decision, I warned, could be their last chance to get one thing right after two years of calamitous mistakes. Here we are hoping for the return of a ‘saviour’ in David Dunn for a derby game that would be highly embarrassing to lose when, in reality, if he is ‘fit’ he may not last much more than half an hour. How desperate can we get? I’ve been a great admirer of David down the years, but we have to face up to the fact that injuries have taken their toll and we may now only see cameo appearances from him. The miserable defeat by Bolton may well be a defining point in our season. Chilling echoes of last season when the 2-1 defeat then was the beginning of the end of our life in the Premiership. The last six matches have produced 5 points – W1 D2 L3. One win against a floundering side with massive internal disciplinary problems. Fast forward to the end of the season and that, if continued, equates to approximately 50 points (28 plus a further 22), which could be uncomfortably flirting with relegation again. Berg has to turn our fortunes around completely in the next six matches – W4 D1 L1 or W4 D2 L0. To grab an automatic promotion spot with well over 80 points we can now afford to lose only another four or five games out of the next 27. A big ask and, on current form, highly unlikely. Maybe Berg can sort it all out – but hopes are fading for this season. In that case, more Venkey’s chickens will be coming home to roost with the first £80million slipping through their fingers. If relegation didn’t, then perhaps that will bring them to their senses.[/p][/quote]Excellent post and spot on with your observations. I don't think anything will bring Venkys to their senses. They've had all the advice in the world from people who know the game but listened to no-one.

A really good honest assessment.

Just to add that I'm fully behind HB but am getting worried about others influencing his decisions or certain stipulations about who has to play.

Murphy n Etuhu cannot play in the same side, both passionless, lazy, slow, going through the motions etc etc and I'd of hoped by now HB would of changed that.
Why is our best defender not playing... Givet?
Why is Simon not starting and getting a chance?
Why is JR not getting a partner up front?
What is so wrong with the proven 4 4 2?
I know HB inherited an ageing squad and Portugese freebies but changes have to be made, he's got to start putting his mark on the team quickly.

I'd be glad to see Dunny back tmrw to start the game, be it for 40 mins just to set the tempo and passion that we ate gonna need.
I've never been so nervous about playing the Dingles but on current form we could get drubbed as we have nobody willing to stand up and play for their shirts.
I'd even take a draw now.

I so hope I am proven wrong and the players are up for it because if we lose tmrw then this season is virtually written off and the vultures will start circling and we will be back to the boos n screams on a weekly basis.

Come on rovers, lets start the changes tmrw.

............BREAKING NEWS..............

BURNLEY V. BLACKBURN.

Lancashire constabulary has just announced special measures, to be put into place for this Sunday's forthcoming east Lancashire football derby.

The mounted police unit will be wearing full body armour.

This is to prevent the horses being sexually abused by the Blackburn fans.
I think you'll find that it's Burnley, where the horse botherers come from. Pr1ck!

What's the difference between a Burnley fan and a B******d fan?

When a Burnley fan says his girlfriend has two left feet, it's because she's bad at dancing. When a B*******d fan says it, it's just because she's a horse.

NO NAY NEVER

Oh dear. Things are beginning to look a bit ominous. Before the Millwall game I was confidently thinking that the next two games would bring us six points and push us back into promotion contention.

But two poor home performances and four goals conceded have shattered that confidence. I sincerely hope Henning Berg can turn things around, but I am beginning to have doubts.

We should have begun to see his influence by now, but in all honesty we look a bunch of misfits and not-good-enoughs, lacking quality and conviction. I know Berg has inherited this lot and I know that it would take some time to turn things round, but will he be able to?

I fully expected to see some backroom changes by now but has HB been told he will have to work with what he has got – or, even worse, does he not have his own trusted ‘team’? I don’t know what departures there have been since Sam went, but we seem woefully lacking on the coaching and training side.

The stamina has gone, the work rate has gone, the fitness has gone. No method, no fire, no punch. A pitiful midfield – and still seriously lacking in defensive ability, even though that problem has been staring us in the face for two years. Where is Gael Givet? Is he injured – or is he another victim of the old guard purge?

We are at sixes and sevens, unbalanced, careless. We have one of the top strikers in the league and we can’t get the ball to him. Peterborough apart, he is feeding off scraps.

How much influence are our deaf and dumb owners in Pune still wielding? Was HB the only applicant who was prepared to sell his soul to them? For what my voice was worth I pleaded with the Rao brothers and Shebby Singh in personal letters not to take another gamble with inexperience for reasons clear to everyone except them. The decision, I warned, could be their last chance to get one thing right after two years of calamitous mistakes.

Here we are hoping for the return of a ‘saviour’ in David Dunn for a derby game that would be highly embarrassing to lose when, in reality, if he is ‘fit’ he may not last much more than half an hour. How desperate can we get? I’ve been a great admirer of David down the years, but we have to face up to the fact that injuries have taken their toll and we may now only see cameo appearances from him.

The miserable defeat by Bolton may well be a defining point in our season. Chilling echoes of last season when the 2-1 defeat then was the beginning of the end of our life in the Premiership.

The last six matches have produced 5 points – W1 D2 L3. One win against a floundering side with massive internal disciplinary problems. Fast forward to the end of the season and that, if continued, equates to approximately 50 points (28 plus a further 22), which could be uncomfortably flirting with relegation again.

Berg has to turn our fortunes around completely in the next six matches – W4 D1 L1 or W4 D2 L0. To grab an automatic promotion spot with well over 80 points we can now afford to lose only another four or five games out of the next 27. A big ask and, on current form, highly unlikely.

Maybe Berg can sort it all out – but hopes are fading for this season. In that case, more Venkey’s chickens will be coming home to roost with the first £80million slipping through their fingers.

If relegation didn’t, then perhaps that will bring them to their senses.
No chance, these guys are as thick as cs!
