Attacking left winger, just what we need. Awesome.

Am I aloud to say this, LET, or is it considered a dark force?

He left Halmstads... nobody else has picked him up... and he's in a position we don't really need. Worth a gamble but he isn't going to make a difference to the team in the short term and may be complete rubbish.

Kean must think we are all idiots and following in his foot steps!!
Another unknown free agent who no body else wants except Kean - is this another one of his expected signings with Premiership experience hitting the ground running as he says!!!
And as for Black and his comments of wanting to join in Keans plan for the future - perhaps one of them can explain to us mere mortals what the future is for Blackburn Rovers other than the Championship or lower - miles away from the promised top ten position and Premiership Signings!!
No just jobs for the boys - the Blacks and Andersons of this world!!
Out with Kean and out with the Venkys

A surprise target? It doesn't surprise me in the least. He's available for FREE!

It's going to be a very busy day for Kean tomorrow. He still has FOUR IMPACT PLAYERS THAT CAN HIT THE GROUND RUNNING TO SIGN!

That is what he said he was going to do, wasn't it? Unless of course he was fibbing. Heaven forbid!

That's according to the Swedish media, which one imagines is probably just as if not more reliable than the British.

Dear me!

The Promise:-
'We have money for transfers and I will be bringing in three or four impact players with experience of the Prem. League to hit the ground running early in January, to help the young players!'

Deals up to 30th January.

1 striker - early 20s(on loan) with no Prem. League experience who cannot get a game at his previous club.

Maybe an unemployed winger from Sweden.

Why do the football
'experts' and media personalities - and come to think of it - Venky's and Kean, feel hard done too because we think the club is being run be the deluded. And we are trouble makers for not being happy with this constant rubbish.

Seen him a billion times. Good player in Swedish Allsvenskan but might struggle in PL. Last year a disappointment for both him and his former team since they were relegated. Still might be a bargain. No transfer fee, probably reasonable wage demands and might help us keep the other Olsson twin.

Tack Djurgardarn! Hope you are enjoying the funfair!

The only possible benefit of the new Olsson joining is if it helps us keep the old one! But then was Martin going to leave anyways?

What a terrible transfer window for us again, even if we keep Samba he is now only a reserve player at best at least until he gets his head straight again and we still have no new established RB and no creative or combative midfielder and despite the Modeste signing there is no new established striker with prem experience signed (what happened to Johnson coming)?

Possibly the only good news is that Junior is staying - especially as he is looking to be back to his most dangerous best again.

Oh yes, plus Kean is still here, and even worse the Venkys are still here (and still all but invisible) so is there ANY good news out there for us...?

Or should we all abandon all hope now? Guess that rests on whether we can beat the Geordies or not....

I think we can so 3 lovely much needed and oh so valuable points for us as predicted from Mystic French Rover...Allez les Bleus!

Roversinmyveins says...

This proves a real lack of funds/ambition and I think the fact venky's have been so quiet over the past few months could mean they no longer want to be involved and are looking for buyers - buyers would obviously wait until we get relegated and we would be a lot cheaper, so no big pay off for venkys.

The only players we should be signing are players that can walk straight into the starting 11, that's the only way to make the team stronger. We already have bought too many 'fringe' or 'squad' players that are just cluttering up the place. Doubtful that any decent players will want to come though, especially with the lack of ambition from the owners stated by our captain earlier this month.

I'm of the opinion that kean (wouldn't be any rovers fans first choice) has made some bad decisions and not done well with a decent team. But ultimately we need to get behind him and the team from now on in, because he's certainly not being backed by the owners financially.

If Venky's don't make the right decisions re the running of the club, or do not invest sufficient funds then they need to go at the end of the season whether we stay up or go down. And every rovers fan needs to make that happen.

I can just picture super Steve going into training and saying 'our great owners have asked if any of you have any family members who fancy a game and won't cost anything... they could save on living expenses by staying in your spare room.' Sadly my transfer window highlight would be persuading Andrews to stay and play again......

Sorry to burst your bubble, but we did this once before where a certain brother came to us (form Paraguay) to keep his elder brother 'happy'! The rest they say is history.

Not justifying Sambas 'outburst' by this but, you allude to our dire dilemma being 'exposed' by Samba at that interview.
Sorry, but that is totally incorrect. EVERYONE is already aware of it, both inside of AND OUTSIDE of football !
That is how bad it has become.
Anyone who cannot see that must have been living in a cupboard this last year.
It is because of this that Samba has done what he has done, but also why the vitriol now aimed at him has been so heightened.
