The Rovers Half Time Bust-Up

Blackburn Rovers duo Christopher Samba and David Dunn were involved in an altercation after West Ham United scored in the defeat on Saturday. Now David Bentley has revealed that this carried on at half time in the dressing room.

After Dean Ashton scored West Ham's equaliser Samba and Dunn confronted each other with Dunny unhappy with the Walls defending that allowed Ashton the chance to bring the Hammers level. This carried on into the dressing room at half time as Bentley has revealed.

Bentley told the Daily Mirror: "It did all kick off. You win and lose as a team. It carried on in the dressing room but it was all constructive.

"We didn't want it to happen again in the second half so we told him (Samba) not to do it

Some may see this as a bad thing but I personally see this as a GOOD thing, it shows how much things mean if they spill over into the dressing room, so long as it IS constructive!!!

Would anyone here like to argue with Samba, even if he was at fault...!?

I think this could be a consequence of the Walls comments last week about the poor performance of the team! I'm worried!

I think that this is a good thing too - we need some leaders out there and some fight

Keeps everyone on their toes doesn't it and shows how much things mean to the club, it might also make the Wall think twice about what he says in the future if he isn't going to uop the ante himself. Yeah, a good thing for me (so long as it doesn't turn nasty of course!!!)
As for arguying with the Wall, I wouldn't but I bet he's a big softie at heart!!!

I never seen the goal but i have read about Samba giving off to the press about the team and its attitude, maybe players have to take a look at themselves sometimes before they go public, Samba has been looking rocky himself at times recently

This shows the fighting spirit. As long as it was constructive then its a good thing. And no I wouldnt argue with Samba either.
