Cardiff Give Up On J-Rob

Cardiff Give Up On J-Rob

Cardiff have had a second bid for Blackburn striker Jason Roberts turned down.

Championship side Cardiff had hoped to sign J-Rob during the summer transfer window, but they have been told they have virtually no chance as Rovers are not willing sellers.

Which is good news as far as I am concerned. Jason has a shot at a good first team run next season and it would be silly to go now as he had a good run at the back end of last season.

There are some that are down on Mr.Roberts due to his lack of finesse but you can't argue that having a striker with pace abd power is worht having in the Blackburn squad/team.

'It looks like Jason is staying at Blackburn now from what I have seen,' chairman Peter Ridsdale told The Cardiff Post.

Good news. Keep it coming.

A very very important player for us. Yet, I think keeping Bentley and RSC is by far more important. If we need to cash in on someone, I'd rather see MGP&JR leaving...

I think he is a very under rated player. He is second to none at holding the ball up and bringing the midfield into play. He also never stops running plus he is capable of scoring 15 goals a season as he did at Wigan. Very very useful player to have in any squad

Woeful!? Maji that is ultra harsh. His finishing wasnt great but his contribution to the team cannot be called into question.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
