Rovers Accept City Offer For Santa Cruz

Rovers Accept City Offer For Santa Cruz

News just in that Rovers have accepted a bid in the region of £16 million + add ons for Roque Santa Cruz from long term admirers Manchester City.

Cruz has been begging for a move since January and he now looks likely to get it.

I think we will all be glad when this is over and done with and we can get on with our lives as normal...

How'd you hear about it Mikey D? There's nothing on the official websites yet...
19/06/2009 17:29:00
Is the "thank god" statement relief that he's gone or that you got the exclusive?
19/06/2009 17:30:00
If its many will he score in the first game of the season.....????

I had a tip off from a friend - its on Sky Sports as well now! I happened to be on a break at the time. And the "thank god" is that he is going!

£15m for Bentley, £16m for RSC. Your chairman MUST be the greatest negotiator in the hisyory of the premier league. Any idea where money's getting spent?

I think he is actually an English hitler. John Williams is a great chairman. The money will be spent more than likely on 2 strikers, a midfielder and maybe a right back - Sam will have to make it stretch.

At Bolton Sam was at his best wheelin' and dealin'. He buys people who are considered unfashionable and combines them superbly. However £18m could buy 4 good players or 2 great players, I'd be tempted to go for the latter though because it's your special players which make all the difference at this level IMO. I thought Givet was a right back who was forced to play in the centre when Samba moved up front?

Hes a left back/centre back Phartman... and a very good one at that as well.

Vital F1 - Sympathy for Kvyat?

Recent Blackburn Rovers Articles

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.
