Martin Dahlin Interview (Part 2)


Obviously your time with Blackburn Rovers was only a short one but what attracted you to the club in the first place?

Roy Hodgson, and the fact that I did join the best club in England at that time.

What qualities did you feel you brought to Blackburn at the time?

I was bought to score goals, and I am sure that if have stayed fit I would have scored 15-20 goals each season.

Roy Hodgson was the Blackburn manager at the time of your arrival what are your views on him?

He is one of the best managers I ever had.

What was the atmosphere in the dressing room like at the time? This was a subject of much debate at the time.

I did not know that? The atmosphere was as far as I remember good.

We've spoken about your career highlight, but what was the highlight of your time with Blackburn?

My first goal at home against Liverpool. It ended 1-1. This was before my injury when I still could do myself justice.

Once again we spoke about your career low point but what was this during your time with Blackburn? I`m sure I already know the answer to this unfortunately.

Hughes Da Man
What words to see and hear "I did join the best club in England at that time!" It's interesting that he says Hodgson was one of the best managers he worked with, but when asked who the best Managers he worked with he didn't mention him!
Hughes Da Man
I refer you to my opening comments on part 1 of the interview Mr. Da Man!
Not the "You Fu cking tease HDM, i want more i tell you, MORE!!!" comment surely :)
Hughes Da Man
lol, I think i will ponder that yourself mate!
Good interview HDM but not a man of many words is he??? seems like a nice bloke.
He's certainly not, didn't say much in part one either. In his "regretts" section he goes to town, doesn't stop jabbering on :) LOL!
Hughes Da Man
