Good deal. Very cheap for a player of his calibre, and he still has a few years left of professional football in him. If it hadn't been for Corluka, Hutton and Naughton, he would be obvious first choice at us:p Don't understand why we had 4 rb's and no naturla LW. Good luck Pascal!

He will prove a very good buy and not a bad price, Can play Cb as well as Rb but not too comfortable at LB, Im surprised other clubs didn't come in for him and i wish him all the best

Well I'm not his biggest fan but as long as he's wearing the blue and white halves he'll have my support.

I am happy with the signing as he does fit the bargain description that we need. And he is straight into the squad for tomorrow...

I think he will cover the full back roles in the main......as an absolute desperate measure at CB....the guy is a good player from what iv seen, and the Spurs fans have echoed this!!

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

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.
