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.
