Saunders Warns Sparky
A report on the BBC's Sport website has Dean Saunders, our former Assistant Manager to 'He Who Shall Not Be Named' warning Mark Hughes on the perils of leaving Ewood Park.
Saunders spoke of his time at Rovers and the shock that he got when he moved to Newcastle with 'Him' in 2004.
Saunders said 'I had a shock going to Newcastle'. (No real surprise there to Rovers fans, eh?)
He went on to say 'Graeme took a risk going to Newcastle but you don't realise how well Blackburn is run until you've left.
'Over the last eight or nine years since returning to the Premier League, Blackburn have steadily improved.
'Mark has done well and taken the club into Europe a couple of times by finishing seventh twice.
'But that is because of how it's run and because the chairman and the directors are very stable people.
'Mark will have the same problem at Man City that we had at Newcastle and he'll realise it should he get there.'
So, the grass isn't always greener, even if it looks more expensive and inviting!
Maybe Deano is angling for a shot at the Rovers Hot Seat if and when Hughes departs.
Nevertheless, it shows how well Rovers are perceived by ex pros and management within the Premier League.
