Rovers "Mass Exodus" Predicted!!!
Sunday and what else are the newspapers going to do apart from predict a mass exodus from Blackburn Rovers!!!
Most of these Sunday newspapers also produce daily's, but with a Sunday comes a whole new license to print whatever and whenever with more room to print as well on a larger scale that they see fit to charge double the money for. Today's offering saw Benni McCarthy, Stephen Warnock and Christopher Samba all being prepared to leave Ewood Park with Sam Allardyce needing to take advance and cash in on these players to raise some more money to add to his modest kitty that is understood to be available.
31-year-old McCarthy could return to his former Portuguese club Porto but is understood to prefer a return to Spain with Champions League bound Atletico Madrid, however, no fee was mentioned for the South African International!!!
25-year-old Samba will join forced with Mark Hughes again as the impression is that the Congolese International will join up with Hughes at Manchester City. However, again no fee was mentioned!!!
27-year-old Warnock will make a big money move to Tottenham Hotspur. The England International will set Tottenham back £7.5 million, but of course Spurs need to sell before they can by anyone is the understanding that their manager Harry Redknapp has given.
Just because it is printed in ink it doesn't make any of it true, however, personally I'd say that Benni leaving wouldn't be that much of a surprise or a blow really is it, just the thought of losing another striker with Matt Derbyshire and Roque Santa Cruz also understood to be moving on is more than a little worrying given the fact that we'd be left with only Jason Roberts to play with!!! The Wall has been a superb signing for us but didn't live up to the high standards last season that he set when he first arrived, so if we can bring in at least ten times what we paid for him (probably more with it being Man City) then I'd not be surprised to see Allardyce accept and use his abilities to bring in another quality (yet cheapish) central defender to replace him?!?! Stevie W is the one that I'd be most concerned about losing and think that we should do all we can to fend of any interest keeping him at just about any cost!!!
