Sam Wins Over Board And Is Adding Salgado

Sam Wins Over Board And Is Adding Salgado

There are numerous reports in Spain, England and in the Times that Blackburn Rovers have agreed a two-year contract with Michel Salgado, the ex-Real Madrid and Spain star who is 33 years old.

The board had been reluctant to part with the cash as they have been trying to trim the wage bill but Sam has made this deal to good to refuse.

Salgado and his agent are now expect back in England today to finalise the deal.

Sam seems to have worked his magic here as Salgado appears to have agreed to a massive reduction in his £60,000 a week wages.

With Salgado agreeing to this the deal now looks a certainty - Sam Allardyce 1 Blackburn board 0.

This could be up there with Jay Jay Okocha with an absolute move of genius as Salgado will add winning mentality and spirit to the dressing room as well as his more obvious talents.

This really could be brilliant, I have a god feel about this as Sam can keep him on the right side of the discipline line but bring out the animal.

Interesting move, let see how this one reflects the team. Hope he will play Salgado on the midfield, so Jacobsen can keep his place on the right back....cheers

Hey at 33 he's a spring-chicken (in my opinion!) he can play for us for years!

Salgado is a very clever player and Allardyce knows what he is doing bringing him in. Maybe it might get him to try some different tactics -- ie less long ball punts. I don't think Allardyce will drop the "kick lumps out of them" approach, though.

This is a definitly a nothing to loose- signing. I hope Big Sam want to use him in a Tugay position. Even if Salgado is to old for managing PL level, we still have a huge personality and experience that can develop the young players. Well done Sam, well done

Great player, if a bit old. Allardyce has a great record of brining in older European stars and getting the best out of them (Think Campo, Djorkaef, etc.) so you're probably onto a winner with Salgado.

There is no way we can lose if we can get this tied up as his influence alone will be worth the experience.

that would be super harsh on Lars - he has done more than enough to keep his spot.

nothing to dislike here, i agree with norwegianrover here. Think sam is thinking that he can do what he did with heirro and push salgado into midfield... and lets face it, he seen how to create world-class play, so recogn he should be up for the job! Plus shows how high we could be aiming!

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
