Allardyce makes first Signing

Allardyce makes first Signing

After being linked with so many players so far this window, Rovers Manager Sam Allardyce has pulled of the unexpected, signing 19 Year old Striker Nick Blackman from Macclesfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

Many fans might be puzzled with the decision, however Sasman believes this is a sign that the board has the confidence in Sam ALlardyce, and he is here for the long run. Blackman has signed a 3 year contract with the club.

Welcome aboard Nick Blackman.....

In other news, South Korean International Lee Keun-ho has reportedly rejected the opportunity to train with Blackburn. Lee is reported to have said

'It is flattering to know that my services are wanted elsewhere, but I need to be playing regularly to continue my development. There is little point joining a great team but having to spend most of the time sitting on the bench.'

'There is still a lot of room for improvement in my game so we will see what the future holds.'


Mark Bresciano has also been in the press, with the Australian Midfielder linked with Newcastle, Boro and Blackburn. Sasman finds it quite funny how Australian Players are always linked with clubs who currently already have Australian players.....

I will reserve judgement until I have seen him play. Sounds like one for the future to me.

Excellent news. The Rovers have pushed so many young players on to the higher level, that the youth team is rather stretched at times. Young Hitchcock (CF) looks a really good player in the making, but he is still very young. It is really pleasing that the Academy is on the lookout for top young players and signing them.

Rigters is no longer a promising youngster, if he's going to make it here it will HAVE to be this year, if not then he never will!!! As far as Blackman goes, if he's good enough lets get him in and around the first-team squad sooner rather than later. We don't want another "promising youngster" that never gets anywhere.

That's a real shame. He looked like he'd be a world beater in the Dutch u21s set up... We haven't had many youngsters break through for a long time have we? Derbs is the closest, but he's still not regular starter yet.

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.
