Will Big Sam Stick Or Twist?

Will Big Sam Stick Or Twist?

It's the 1st of September today and it is a chance for clubs like Rovers to either make a splash in the market or cut their losses and keep the players that we have rolled with for a while.

It could be a funny old day though as Sam is well known to want to bring in more players but has been told by the board to sell before he buys.

Sam has apparently prepared a list of players he is prepared to sell, if the price is acceptable, to raise funds and the list contains the following players -

* Benni McCarthy
* Zurab Khizanishvilli
* Keith Andrews (even though he has just signed a new deal)
* Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Now whilst accepted that we don't know these for absolute certain these are widely accepted to be the players that we can afford to lose but only if Sam gets the players he wants to bring in.

Rumoured incomings are Kevin Nolan and Benjani amongst others if the current players are sold and not to mention the Big Sam special - i.e. players that we have never heard of unless you are called Bom Bom.

All in all, it could be a day of very little activity but maybe, just maybe, we could see a few leave and a few come in as we look to freshen things up.

It will go one way or another but either way it should be an interesting day.

Please don't sell Benni we really need his instinct for finishing. I really wish we hadn't have sold Matty Derbyshire now, and this could be the same as that.

Of course this is all rumour but it has made the day more exciting than I thought it would be!

I´m afraid today will be our D-day. We have to get in more players with the right abilities, or else we will fight for PL survival. We don´t need players who have to practice a year before they are fit (Elrio, Kalinic and Di Santo). We need quality. I´m very exited, but I really can´t understand how Big Sam could get us more players during the day.

I think Benni will go to Porto, it have been mentioned sometimes during the summer and I think Benni will like to go to his old club. I think it is alright to let him go, he hasn't show a lot lately, and now that we are playing with only one attacker in home matches! Then why almost have to many.......cheers

I think 5pm will not be the "real deadline" as deals will go on past that date... just my opinion.

Im really disappointed with not trying to get Eidur Gudjohnsen on loan or something. He has something that we haven´t had for ages, creativity, skills and he even knows where the goal is. And I would start crying if we buy Benjani or something stupid. Though I would love to see Taylor in Roversshirt.
