Hendry past his sell buy date, a good servant to Rovers and was well paid. Don't want to see him at Rovers in any capacity. We have enough members of the Scottish deadwood society.

Extremist ? How ? Hendry's views and conduct are well documented and in the public domain!

My comment to T4E, wasnt passing comment about his wife or me being callous. It was meant to convey my view- the death of someone close shouldnt be used as an excuse for acting in despicable/ disgusting ways - or anything else.

I speak as someone who has suffered terrible loss in horrendous circumstances.

Or maybe you disagree, and think the death of someone close to you shields you from any criticism :blink:

Back to Hendry's quotes. Been told he was on 5live, on Sunday, doing the City build up, and he was painful and waffled.
Been relayed to me that he said something like; "Jack Walker spent a shed load of money to win the league. Then he sold the players to finance the stadium. Its been a bad season, but at-least the fans have that stadium! " What ? :blink:
Anyone catch it ?


Yes I heard that. He's general waffling all weekend has been quite bizarre.

Yet more evidence. :( He just gets worse!
My mates take on it was that Stuart Hall talked more sense! :lol:
I think Stuart Hall is exceptional! Be great if there is a compilation of him somewhere!

The fact that it's not been contested despite being 'live' for a long time is quite telling..

WOW...
Colin Hendry is entitled to his own opinion, it does not belittle the service hes given to this club. arnt people allowed to have opinion that arnt totally the extremist views some on here are starting to develop here..



@Mercerman your comments on how people deal with bereavement, really poor comments,It none of your business how people deal with there PERSONAL bereavement. sickening :angry:

I for one would welcome him back at this club in a flash..


I'm with Mercerman. If you call ripping off a kind neighbour and boasting about it "dealing with their PERSONAL bereavement" then you're the one who's sickening.

Nothing can take away from the memories of Big Col as a player but he's done nothing since to suggest he has much idea about management either of a club or himself.

We've already got one Scottish idiot living in a fantasy world with increasingly bizarre and selfish behaviour and prone to making irrational statements so why not another ? Get him on board.

With Hendry's alleged financial dealings with friends etc you can see why Kean and associates want him on board can't you?

Am I the only one who can't find the website www.colinhendrylies.com ?? Is my server blocking it?

If, as seems to be reported, Big Col does get a job at Rovers, it's another example of how totally incapable of making one right decision this lot are.

He was a great player and I respect him for that. He's had great personal tragedies and I feel sorry for him for that, BUT he has never shown himself to be a good manager or coach, and it seems he has made a lot of very bad mistakes in personal and financial matters since the death of his wife.

I just can't see what postive results he would bring to Rovers. Kean will no doubt be spinning what a great fans' favourite he is ( I think we probably all agree that should be "was") and what a coup it will be for Venky's to take him on and they'll believe him of course.

With this lot in charge there really is no hope.

Even if Kean finally goes, they'll still find lots of ways to cock things up further.

Agreed. Great player for us or not, if that's true he's a scumbag of the highest order.

Colin Hendry would only bring more gloom to the club.

Lets hope he keeps well away from Ewood and Brockhall and is only reeled out, when theres a 95 celebration.

What coaching experience has Hendry got? Does he even have his "badges"? They don't prove much but at least show a guy is serious and not just wandering in for a pay packet and a bit of banter. I doubt that Hendry is even at square one when it comes to experience or qualifications. But that's football among the less successful clubs- it's you know and who buys the rounds.....

I don't know for a fact but he managed Clyde up here so he must surely have badges?

Kean starts charm offensive with appointment of Hendry to coaching staff, trying to get a little more clarification but being alledged

:rolleyes: great.

An offer was put to Big Col a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it had gone cold, however it appears not and this has progressed.
