Benjani Linked With Rovers

Blackburn Rovers are understood to now be focusing attention on Benjani Mwaruwari.

The Manchester City striker is one of a number of players that looks like they are going to be leaving the City of Manchester Stadium and this has seen newspaper reports claiming an interest from Sam Allardyce in the Zimbabwean International. Kenwyne Jones and Darren Bent are other names understood to be interesting Allardyce, however, both appear to be out of Rovers' budget so Benjani could prove a more realistic (price wise) alternative.

30-year-old Benjani has already said that he'd like to return to his former club Portsmouth so Rovers would have to compete with the South Coast club (if Rovers are even interested??) along with Fulham and Stoke City.

He'd be an acceptable choice, if the price were small enough that we could still afford 2-3 more players.

He will never go to Blackburn. If he had to leave City, he will go back to Portsmouth. Fratton is his home, and the fans wants him back and that is a very important factor as Benji wants to feel welcome.
Pompey Malta
I don't thnk Pompey will be buying anyone Malta. You look in real trouble only a mad man would go there before everything has settled down and you've managed to sell up (hopefully no to that crooked businessman who I seem to remember also had something to do with the oil money going Citeh's way)

So it's not only Spurs fans that believe what they read in the papers then Money4... to quote yourself on the Benjani link "you look in real trouble only a mad man would go there !" We've a promise of a Great New Future ... What have you got.. oh yeah BIG SAM.. BIG DEAL.. As for Benjani whoever gets him (and tbh honest I don't wanna see him back at Pompey .. it'll spoil the good memories) will get a bloke who is committed to the cause and will work his socks off.. seriously let say he goes the Blackburn... Come Christmas you'll be saying he's the best thing since sliced bread and you don't know how you ever coped without him

Maybe true Chix but we have stability and a manager that is a GREAT man manager - there are a lot of players that have thrived playing here. Pompey on the other hand at the present time are an unstable choice. I like Pompey but it is true.

I don't think that Pompey can buy or sell at the moment as people are buying them so the accounts get frozen...
FreidelNo.1
Is that right?! Is that why they havent announced the Axe deal yet?
Mikey D
err, mikey D - benjani himself has thrived at pompey, but if you want more well know players - what about englands number one? or that little midfielder that plays for real madid? or the slightly bigger one that plays for Inter? or the right back that now plays for liverpool and england? Players have thrived at pompey, and with our takeover - by a [rich] UN goodwill abasador (not connected to oil in any way, shape or form) - looks to be going through. so there is our stability. and what's more, Benji would know he would settle quickly, and is already a fans favourite.
pompeycarpet
Pompey carpet - you have not read what I have written! I am saying players can thrive at Blackburn, I never said players cant thrive at Pompey! I am saying there are an unstable choice at the moment - which is true.
Mikey D
It's infered by the choice and ordering of your words. Whilst pompey may apear to be unstable, once the takeover goes through, there is the potential for the club to be transformed, as all clubs with a sudden influx of money can probably testify. Yes, it may look like a gamble, but it's odds on that you'd be on to a winner.
pompeycarpet
True but that still only backs up my point. At this point in time Blackburn are the more stable choice - players can thrive at Pompey without a doubt but until the takeover is complete then that unce will remain.
Mikey D
Benjani would be a good get for Rovers, he did really well at Portsmouth but im sure he mite head back there at some stage. I myself would try and go for Jones, Janko etc as they are under 30 and they would not disappear for a month for the Africian Nations....Godd player though
