Good luck to Robbo, I don't think that he will get his chance though will he? Stevie W is AGAIN VERY unlucky to be left out as Wayne Bridge continues to be selected despite the fact he doesn't play very often for Chelsea!!!

He should be, but its still the same and some of the additions are awful, Bullard, Upson and no Owen who'll score the goals especially against Andorra, Capello's clueless similar to the Swede.

Why is Bullard an awful addition? Passionate, great passer, link up play with the forwards is great... stuff that England have been missing. Lets face it, some of the first choice X1 have been rubbish for england, give ther next lot a chance... A team of Robinson (yes I know biased), Micah Richards, Jonny Woodgate, Rio Ferdinand, Joleon Lescott, David Bentley, Gareth Barry, Jimmy Bullard, Joe Cole, Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott would shake things up again.

Personally I still don't think that Robbo should be the number one again just yet, if he has a good few months with us then he could be ready, but throwing him back in at this point in time could be a bad thing. Let him build his confidence right up again, then maybe but until then he will be in the squads, but that's about it.

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.
