If he's not leaving Molde for Villa then I doubt Blackburn have much chance at luring him.

From trying to lure up and coming Norwegian league winning manager Ole....to being reject in a bid for Fulham coach Billy McKinlay. Probably not what the fans expected.

Henning Berg set to be appointed....not too promising really..given he got sacked by his last club.

Pricking Around Like A Clown

On the back page of The Daily Mail this morning is a theoretically amusing tale about Henning Berg 'storming out' of Blackburn's Christmas party after being encouraged to dance with a stocking on his head on stage.

Chris Wheeler writes: 'The humiliating incident on Monday night is bound to cast more doubt over Berg's future at Ewood Park just seven weeks after he returned as manager.'

So 'man not wanting to prick around like some sort of clown' becomes 'he might get sacked'? Quite the leap.

Still, presumably the Mail website would correct their story after Berg released the following statement:

"After the dinner I was asked to go to the stage, which I was happy to do, believing I would be asked a few questions or maybe judge a competition.

"Instead I was asked to do things which were not the right things for me to do as the manager, considering our league position and form. I did not want to do it and went back to my table.

"Later, I left the event at around 9.30pm, as planned, and drove home. The players left straight after dinner and no alcohol was consumed."

Alas not. The details given in the Mail's story remain the same (on their website, at the time of writing), with the headline slightly altered to the pithy: 'I didn't want to do it, admits Berg after storming out of Blackburn's Christmas party because he was asked to wear a stocking on his head and a Michael Jackson wig.'

Still, one man's 'man not wanting to prick around like some sort of clown, then leaving at the time he expected to' is another's 'storm out'.

Take a minute to imagine the headlines if Berg had pricked around like some kind of clown while Blackburn lie 15th in the Championship.

His teams lack of points on the pitch might be a better reason behind him facing the chop not the fact that he didn't want to act like an idiot at the christmas party.

Nor can you blame him for not wanting to celebrate given his team's current position really imo.

Just the Daily Hate Mail being spiteful so nothing new for them.

I've always viewed the football club christmas party as something more for the people who work behind the scenes. You expect the players to turn up with the managers to make an appearence say thankyou, have photos taken but then leave as they've got games coming up.

I know at Utd the Xmas party involves the clubs youth team putting on a panto show where the basically take the p*ss out of the first team and the management.

The players have their own seperate party where the bus in the b*tches to a hotel and get p*ssed then someone gets charged with rape after all tradition is tradition.

I'd agree with that. Didn't know about the youth team panto though! :lol: It sounds brilliant, and I'd love to see it.

All too right about the players party as well. :rolleyes:

Hopefully, players are learning from other's past mistakes and will at least make some effort to either stay home and have some fun or if they do go out, then behave themselves and be home early in a fit state to train and play when the games come up.

Hopefully. Image

I'd love to see the youth team panto too, sounds amazing!! :fonz:

Never really seen the point of Xmas parties for the players either, it's actually about the worst time for a party for them as there are so many matches coming thick and fast.

The story itself is the usual crap you'd expect of the Daily Mail, expect the Sun to run the same story in 3 days and tag it as an "exclusive"

The Xmas panto is closed off to the press because some of it cuts pretty close to the bone as you imagine Giggs & Rooney take the brunt of the abuse as most of it is based on the stories from the press.

As for the players it's a team bonding thing that normally happens 2 or 3 weeks before Xmas the Utd one was after the Sunderland game. The old style party has been shut down now and they had a party at Rio's restaurant food, drink and bit of karaoke the highlight apparently was Shinji Kagawa singing Gangnam Style.

That's a bit of a let down. Did anyone else see the video of the Southampton mascot doing the dance?
