Alas, 57 days seems to go by with the blink of an eye

Newsflash: Blackburn Rovers are an absurd excuse for a shambles of a football club. Today former manager – and we use that term in the loosest sense imaginable – Henning Berg has been awarded £2.25 million in compensation after winning his claim against the club at the High Court following his sacking in December of last year.

Having signed a three-year contract, Berg spent a total of 57 days in charge at Ewood; taking over on 31st October 2012 and overseeing Rovers’ meteoric rise from fifth in the Championship table to 17th in the Championship table before being sacked on 27th December 2012 after a run of three straight defeats.

He is now TWO-AND-A-QUARTER MILLION POUNDS richer.

As pithy bugger @Olikenyon put it on Twitter: “Blackburn Rovers: making millionaires out of the unqualified since 2011”

Too right.
