Warnock And Chimbonda Having Medicals

Warnock And Chimbonda Having Medicals

Busy news day so far with word arriving that Rovers and Villa have agreed an £8 million deal to seal the Stephen Warnock switch - as expected. This has lead to a medical taking place as we speak at Villa Park with Stephen now set to leave Rovers.

Furthermore, at virtually the same time we have recieved word that Pascal Chimbonda is at Ewood now having HIS medical as he lloks to complete his £2 million move to Rovers to replace Stephen. Keeping up?... good thought so.

As we here at Rovers are more bothered about players who want to be here, I am not going to go into too much detail about Warnocks' move - other than say Stephen has been a great servant to Rovers and never let his desire to move overshadow his performance so I wish him the best.

But the details of Pascals' move (or Chimbo as the Spurs like to call him) are becoming pretty clear. He has been offered a three year deal by Sam and the club with an option to extend and is dong the normal medical checks. This is all according to Chimbos' agent Willy McKay.

Expect both moves to be completed later today and we can then all welcome Pascal to the club.

It's funny isn't it the season ends in May leaving a 3 month period to sign players, yet 90% of deals seem to go through in the last week. Everybody waits for someone else to make the first move, then once one players moves he needs to be replaced, and it starts a chain effect.

its def happening, though i will still say its a strange move for Warnock, yes last yr when Villa were placed to possibly break into the Top 4 but with the emergance of City, it doesn't look likely this season and again as I have said...with a good season, Rovers could be fighting for the same kinda of positions at the end of the sesaon, this is a long shot this season as Villa have a more settled team, but u never know!! £2m for Chimbonda looks a good deal for us added to this his versitility but in losing Warnock, we are losing out on a talented English player, but a profilt, is a profit epsecailly on the £1.5m we spent on him.....

Clint- Blackburn Rovers will not be competing with Aston Villa for 'the same kinda of positions'. It takes a very blinded and biased Blackburn Rovers fan to even contemplate that you'll be competing for europe this year. Theres City, Tottenham, Villa, Everton that will be definites, and maybe fulham can qualify again. But Blackburn?! Your a very naive football fan to think that.

Warnock feels he needs to play for a bigger club like Villa than small east lancs club like Rovers to gain a place in next years England Squad. He apparently would never of made it playing for a team everyone hates especially the media. 08/09 Villa finished 6th, Rovers 15th 07/08 Villa finished 6th, Rovers 7th 06/07 Villa finished 11th, Rovers 10th 05/06 Villa finished 16th, Rovers 6th Think its fair to say we are on roughly even par over the years with Villa Clint said....With a good season!, he was being naive, hell the Dingles if they carry on the way they are goin could be playin in Europe next year. In football its all if's n but's but nothing is ever definate until the end of the season.

fair enough. Your correct, what I said was naive. I agree nothing is a given in football. What I was trying to explain was that Warnock moving to Aston Villa is not a strange move at all. and to mutts nutts- well done you've done your research into finding out league standings from previous years, did you go all the way back through the years, 40s, 50s and even before etc, because that (going along with your theory) would suggest that Villa are better than blackburn, but that would be completely irrelevant, much the same as comparing the 06/07 season.. we're talking NOW! but yes you are correct my original comment was naive...
