Marlon Harewood As Bait!!!

Marlon Harewood As Bait!!!

Reports in today's national media are saying that Aston Villa are preparing to step-up their interest in Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The reports say that it is understood Villa manager Martin O'Neill failed with an approach from the Paraguayan International in the summer, but he will return with a fresh bid in January when the transfer window re-opens. Speculation linking the striker to other clubs isn't new, but the idea of Villa stumping up an £18 million package is (not that I see this happening anyway!!!)

The most disturbing thing about the whole report (which is in a newspaper that I will not name, as it doesn't deserve to be given the mention) is that a package involving cash and a player sees Marlon Harewood as the player to be used "as bait" to tempt Rovers into selling. MARLON HAREWOOD, not much (if anything!) would be caught with that sort of bait attached!!!

The usual stories in the media really, even if it has a slightly different twist! I'd rather tear my own arm off and eat it than see us do ANY kind of deal with Aston Villa for Marlon Harewood, who clubs SHOULD be given money for taking off the hands of Villa!!! We'd better get used to the Santa rumours again though, however, we just ignore them now don't we?!?!

This is just silly, the papers treat rovers like they will accept anything. Give the guys at the club a bit more credit.

Well, one thing might be true. Villa could want Roque; but from there antill Roque's departure there's a loooong way, wich I don't think it will covered. I don't imagine Roque leaving Rovers any time soon, and certainly not in January

I cannot believe the cheek of this! If Harewwod is the bait all that he'll catch is a bad cold. He was over the hill two years ago and is now so ripe even a carp would turn away. He's a big strong "Championship" player. You'd find it hard to find one fan (not related) who thinks he's up to Premiership standard.

If the club were to accept that offer we would be a laughing stock. If its true (and i doubt that it is) O'neill has some cheek if thats what he is gonna offer.

Harewoods quality and you'd be lucky to get 12m for Santa Cruz who is preparing for a very poor season with you lot. Give it a year and he'll be worth Fu(k all, he'll be off to spurs or some other **** club and you'll get near enough nothing.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
