Simon Garner column: No need to break up Blackburn Rovers striker pair

Lancashire Telegraph: Rudy Gestede Rudy Gestede

I SEE that we have been linked with Doncaster’s Chris Brown. I’ll be completely honest and say I do not know a great deal about him.

But I trust Gary Bowyer’s judgement and, what I do know, is we need another striker as I don’t think there’s a way back for Leon Best, DJ Campbell and David Goodwillie.

But if Brown does come in I can only see him being back up to Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede.

They showed at the back of end of last season what a partnership they are going to be and I can’t see them losing their places unless they get injured.

If we do bring in another striker that’ll make it seven as we also have Best, Campbell and Goodwillie – as well as Jordan Slew.

But those four players have been transfer listed and even if they do remain at the club, I can’t see them getting a chance.

I think their Rovers careers are over and as I’ve said before, it would be better for all concerned if they were to cut their losses and go and get regular football elsewhere.

If they do I’m sure that would help Gary in the transfer market. T

hat said I don’t think there are many other areas in which he needs to strengthen.

As I say we need a back-up striker and we certainly need a right back as it was our problem position last season.

But apart from that, we’re looking pretty good.

That’s important as you only have to look at the teams who are going to be in the Championship next season to realise how hard it is going be.

But unlike a lot of their rivals, Blackburn’s squad is settled as they’ve had a good six months together now.

That means when the players return to pre-season training next month they should hit the ground running as they all know each other and they all know how Gary wants them to play.

I see Gary is excited for the season to get going and I’m sure the fans are too.

We’ve got the World Cup to keep us going but nothing beats watching your own team.

The excitement has been built up with the release of the fixtures.

Now all we need is a signing.

Well and truly said, Simon. I cannot wait for the new season and believe that the Rovers are going to have a good one!

How many world class players did we lure to our club last season?

How many did we need to beat you clowns at Ewood Park?

How many did we need to maintain a top 3 position for 8 months?

How many did we need to see of the challenges of QPR and Derby?

How many did we need to secure automatic promotion?

Silly comment from the no-dad really, perhaps he should think then he might not make himself sound like such a moron.

Sean Dyche spent just £400k and took Burnley FC into the Premier League.

He has the full backing of the board, a new contract, and about £20million to strengthen the squad as he see's fit. He also has a massive amount of talent and ability. He commands respect and will surprise many of his peers this season in the Premier League.

And oh my word you are so jealous of us.

How many "world class" players are you likely to see at Ewood Park in the future given your £60million debt and horrific losses?

My guess is zero. So wind your neck in your fool.

No, that's different because it just is. Apparently Ings is changing his name to Danny Burnley because he's so devoted to that club and will never leave because he's not interested in success or money, just Burnley.

Why does anyone think this move is to break up Rhodes and Gestede?

Football is a squad game these days, players loose form, get injured; etc, etc. We need cover and players who are going to challenge for places.

From what I saw of him last season he's a big, bustling classic centre forward who isn't frightened of getting stuck in, he certainly ran us ragged last season.

If he starts on the bench he puts pressure on our forwards, keeps them on their toes, and there are some centre half's in this league that could do with a good knocking about, remember the clattering Rhodes got in several games last season?

Apart from a couple of his early signings GB has made some cracking decisions (who had heard of Gestede?) So if he signs I for one will judge him on how he plays for us.

How many did we need to beat you clowns at Ewood Park? How many did we need to maintain a top 3 position for 8 months? How many did we need to see of the challenges of QPR and Derby? How many did we need to secure automatic promotion? Silly comment from the no-dad really, perhaps he should think then he might not make himself sound like such a moron. Sean Dyche spent just £400k and took Burnley FC into the Premier League. He has the full backing of the board, a new contract, and about £20million to strengthen the squad as he see's fit. He also has a massive amount of talent and ability. He commands respect and will surprise many of his peers this season in the Premier League. And oh my word you are so jealous of us. How many "world class" players are you likely to see at Ewood Park in the future given your £60million debt and horrific losses? My guess is zero. So wind your neck in your fool.[/p][/quote]"Sean Dyche spent just £400k and took Burnley FC in the Premier League" Wrong,he spent £400,000 UP FRONT as he said in his interview. (actual £850,000 + add ons) How many world class players did Burnley sign last time they visited the P.L.?.[/p][/quote]LOL, the no-dad is arguing over £400k when Burnley have just won prmotion to the Premier League and £120million! What a ballb@g. It was £400k full stop. Super Claret

Better tell Dyche he is lying then, or you just don't know because all you think you know is everything Rovers and nothing Burnley. Not arguing,just showing how little you actually know. typical Dingle,all noise,no substance.

Who else do you think we should sign David?
Who should be manager instead of Bowyer David?
Who should buy the club from Venkys David?.... David? Hello? David?
David is a well known rovers motherboar poster who gets his kicks arguing with anyone who doesnt talk doom and gloom. The only posters he seems to agree with is himself and the Dingles.

Simon its easy to say 'the players should cut their loses' but seriously who would be willing to walk away from 40K per week? FFP has had a great pre season and is raring to go.

We need to build a team who is going to play 60 odd games in this season including the capital one, FA cup.
We need backup players to create same momentum when a player to injured or Red card.or transfer issues(last season Scott Dann leave in the middle of the game and lost the shape).

Last season we lost 5 match's due to lack of correct replacement to maintain the shape of the game plan. Hope this season we arrange quality in the bench.
