Let's hope this doesn't distract from the most important event in January, the transfer window. Time to take Kean's legacy and show it the door, Henning. This is the worst Rovers squad in over 20 years. Thank goodness for Rhodes. The defence is shambolic and lacks leadership and Dann is giving us the same value for money as Kevin Davies did in his time at Ewood. One word is constantly used week in, week out to describe our defending - sloppy. And sloppy again today for the Burnley goal. Let's try and get Ryan Nelson back in January as player/coach and develop the youngsters.

Ryan Nelsen, excellent idea and I bet he wouldn't mind coming back now Kean has gone. He could do a brilliant job in this division. ..IMO

Couldn't agree more. This club is a mess on the back line. Hope Henning can bring one or two quality defenders plus another quality center mid. I Hate to say it considering how many times we heard it last season, but I really have to reserve judgement until after the window considering he's trying to piece a team together with the mess Kean left.

I think any fans expecting the chicken pluckers to get the cheque book out in January are in for some disappointment. They,ve only just covered the down payment on Rhodes so I doubt very much they,ll be spending anymore and Berg knew this when the three stooges gave him the job and he accepted it. It,s gonna be a long season me thinks !

If that's the case then we all need to keep playing the euro millions cause Rhodes will keep us up but every goal he scores puts more on his value and I have no doubt that Venkys will be looking for him to go the way of Jones and Samba as they cash in. If he gets injured we will go down with the Dingles as they will cash in on Austin and their defence is as bad if not worse than ours.
In two years Venkys have bled this club dry and have given us the worst squad in over 20 years

Ryan Nelsen , great idea , player coach, QPR `s best player would they let him go ?

Hendry`s huge wages could go to pay for Nelsen , no need for the useless Hendry now anyway not with Berg as manager, use the money to bring in Ryan.

I'm with the bring back Nelsen camp. Great motivator, lots of experience, would be a great asset in the twilight of his career.
Plus get rid of the deadwood at Ewood to free up a few quid to tighten the defence in January.

I agree to bring back Samba and Nelsen at the center. Now Kean is gone and hope good players like to come back. Zonzi's role is the real miss for blackburn.
