Window Closes With Santa Still In Place
Blackburn Rovers managed to get through the January transfer window with Roque Santa Cruz (and others) still at Ewood Park.
As the day went on Sky Sports News did understand for a brief moment that a deal to take Santa Cruz to Manchester City might have still gone ahead, but this didn't happen and the Paraguayan International will now stay at Ewood until the summer at least.
It might have been a quiet time with players coming in, but with the quality that we already have in place at Rovers not that much was needed really so it didn't happen. The season ending injury to Brett Emerton is a major blow to Rovers and probably played a major role (and this injury probably added to Santa staying, new signing El Hadji Diouf will now be deployed as a right-sided player, when he might have moved up as an out and out striker had Santa gone and Emerton not been injured.)
We can now concentrate on the rest of the season and the task in hand of ensuring we survive relegation, which we will!!!
