Samba: I have To Be More Consistent

Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba has struggled for form this season, and by his own admission this has been the worse season of his career.

Last season when Samba arrived injury to others gave him the chance to come in and he shone, with his 350,000 BARGAIN fee rising ten times (minimum) by the time the season was out and he as linked to some top European clubs. However, this season he has struggled to recapture this form regularly, but he is looking to get back to his best and feels that he will.

Samba told the Lancashire Telegraph: "It's my first really poor season. I have to work on my consistency a little bit more during the season.

"It's not easy to keep up your performance in every game, but I am working on it and I can only get better
."

The Wall also feels that despite the fact that Rovers are now nine points adrift of Everton in fifth and Liverpool and Manchester United will be our next opponents European football is still attainable, so long as each of the remaining five matches are treated as Cup Finals.

He added: "Of course we can make it to Europe.

"We've got five league games left and, for me, they are like five consecutive cup finals.

"We need a good finish to the season. We will give it everything we can and do our best, and we'll see at the end if it is good enough.

"But I think we have to improve in some areas. Our last pass has not always been exact and we need to work on that to create more chances
."

The Wall has struggled this season, his performances have been WELL below what we saw last season but he will be back, personally I think that he has missed playing alongside a fully fit Ryan Nelsen. As far as the UEFA Cup qualification goes I think catching Everton is asking to much, but the Intertoto Cup route is still on but we MUST win at least one of the next two matches!!!

Yer Intertoto deff now Pompey are in cup final, just us against the Villa so will be difficult but they have a few hard games like derby against birmingham is one of them.

Although he has stuggled he has always been there, cus although nelson is a quality defender he does get injured a quite a bit so i think he is a quality centre back to have. He is my fav rovers player aswell and like you hav said he is worth at least 10times what he got brought for, i think he is worth at least 5 mill now tho

Quality ALWAYS shines through doesn't it, and the Wall has this so he'll be back to his best sooner rather than later. He has missed playing alongside a fully fit Nelsen.

The man mountain just hasn't been on form like he was last season, hopefully the recent return of a fully fit Nelsen will inspire him to start putting those commanding performances that we all marvelled about last season.

He looks SO much better next to God and I agree... why doesnt he just rest for a couple of games and get Zurab in there with Big Ryan for the next few games???
