Sam Expecting Summer Change
Big Sam is expecting a merry go round of the playing staff this summer as change is needed at Ewood Park.
Several players that have been inherited by Sam he is using but he doesn't really want in the long run and players such as Andre Ooijer and Aaron Mokoena are out of contract.
Add into this the fact that the permanently injured Roque Santa Cruz thinks he is too good for us and there should be a few comings and goings this pre-season.
The Big Man, speaking to the L.E.T - 'Football today means players stay less now than ever before and you have to accept that,'
'As a manager, a big part of your business is doing far too much business that you don't want to do really.
'We are in a position where we always have to change more players than we really want to and that brings a lot of instability and makes your job so much harder than it should be, because players come and go almost at the drop of the hat.
'When you are sitting in Sir Alex's (Ferguson's) spot or Arsenal's spot or Chelsea or Liverpool, it is so much easier because it is only ever one or two changes.
'But when you are where we are it is four or five.'
Sounds like were in for a bumpy one!
