Ooijer's Dropped A Clanger

Ooijer's Dropped A Clanger

Sam Allardyce dropped and fined Andre Ooijer after the Dutchman returned a day late for training after a trip to Holland.

Ooijer angered the Big Sam by missing a day's training in the build-up to the game against Pompey at the weekend - a crucial six pointer that has had a large bearing on Rovers season.

But ever the strict disciplinarian, wanted total respect that he felt he wasn't getting. So he docked Ooijers' wages and removed him from the first X1 for Saturdays' game.

Ooijer is due to quit Rovers at the end of the season when his contract runs out, howeer this even will call into question his professionalism.

Keith Andrews was put in Ooijer's right back spot for the big match.

He should still get a good send on the last day of the season

I agree mani, as cynical as it sounds it is a great chance for Sam to assert his dominance on the team... an excellent chance.

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.
