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.
