Dunn & Grella OUT of Season Opener!!

Dunn & Grella OUT of Season Opener!!

It is being reported that David Dunn and Vince Grella will not play a part in this season's curtain raiser against Manchester City on August 15th.

Reported via the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, its been highlighted that Grella is on his way back after a hamstring injury while Dunn has had thigh problems and neither has featured much in Rovers' warm-up games.

'They have missed most of the pre-season games and are out of the running,' Allardyce told the Lancashire Telegraph.

'Dunny and Grella definitely won't play a part - unless we pick up loads more injuries - because they have only had 45 minutes between them.'

Shocking news, given our midfield isnt berift with talent and depth at the moment.

Come on then VBers, whats your opinion on this situation?

This, for me, is indeed a worrying situation as we need a good start to this campaign. Failure to get it and we are looking at "Hell Month"; being October. A converned VBer!

Maybe this means that Reid will start.

Maybe have to buy now in the midfield especially as we cannot rely on Reid to be fit for the season and not sure on how Emo will be after a long period out Nzonzi and Andrews maybe Warnock in there, but think opening day will need Warnock at let back mmm.

Emo, Reid coming back, N'Zonzi, Andrews, Warnock - yes it is a worry without a doubt but we have numbers in there that can do the trick.

As long as Emo, Hammer Reid, Warnock & Andrews are fit for the 1st game then we should be ok, i doubt he will start with N'zonzi but the verdict on who had a better or worse game between N'zonzi & Andrews is still undecided but Andrews experience will count in his favour.

Reid and Emo are only now getting back to trainging and given that Sam is holding off these 2 due to lack of pre season participation, where does that leave Emo and Reid, who havent featured AT ALL!

Even tho they are good players.........you cant really say this was a shock as they both have poor injury records and we will probley have to deal with these 2 being unavalible more often :( x

We will be fine, I would personally play Andrews and Warnock and go from there.

I think we'll start with Warnock and Emerton on the wings. Andrews and Reid in the middle - bad news though, seeing as I see those two as our first choice pairing...
