Blackburn Rovers Blog: Samba’s sold out to Russian rouble
CHRISTOPER Samba is a disgrace. That man has been a colossus for Rovers and should have left the club as a legend, with his head held high.
But after two months of whingeing, he has lost all respect from a large portion of the Ewood Park faithful.
I would wish him all the best, but it looks to me as though he is motivated purely by one thing – money.
Anzhi who? The Russian league? He clearly has high aspirations.
This man was on goodness knows how much money a week, money normal folk like me and you can only dream of earning in three years.
It is outrageous. A professional footballer saying he could not give his all for the club. If I said that at my newspaper, I’d be in my trouble.
Not only was he a professional footballer, but he was team captain.
What an example to set.
We have enough problems with the owners and the team needed the captain to stay strong.
Fair enough, Venky’s may not have fulfilled their promises to Samba and we may be heading up the Swanee, but I expect better.
“It’s not fair,” he says. Well, I’ll tell you what’s not fair, Chris. Watching the team you have supported all your life and spend bucket loads of cash following, only for the best players to jump ship when times are hard.
As Rovers fans we are here through thick and thin, home and away, and we stand and chant your name.
You may have been a cracking player over the years, but in the past few months you have shown your true colours. All the best in Siberia.
n I will get slated for this, but isn’t Keith Andrews doing well?
The man booed constantly by his own fans, sometimes before even kicking a ball, has resurrected his career, and he is one man I do wish all the best.
I stuck up for Andrews when he was a Rovers player as he was never given a chance by a majority of fans, who shunned him from day one.
With our midfield looking weaker and weaker, surely he is a player we really could have utilised this season.
I’m sure he will take great delight in having the last laugh if, God forbid, we are relegated this season.
“He’s not a Premier League player”, is what people used to tell me all the time.
Well he’s doing a pretty good job of pretending now he’s found a club where he may be appreciated.
