Dunn Is Big Sam's Main Man

Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has identified David Dunn as his main man for Rovers this season.

Dunn is being deployed in a role behind the striker this season, with Allardyce calling the midfielders role the Steven Gerrard role with Big Sam also backing the 29-year-old to blossom even further.

Allardyce told Sky Sports: "David's skill and talent is what we need on a weekly basis.

"I think we've found a position for him that will cause a lot of problems. We have four strikers with David taking up a Steven Gerrard role.

"David has blossomed into one hell of a creative player with two goals from three games.

"He's opening up defences. The flair players like David and (El-Hadji) Diouf make a big difference when they use their skills in the right areas.
"

The former England International now NEEDS to stay injury free!!

It really is difficult to put into words how much better we are as a team when he is fit - we dont have anyone else like him.

He was absolutely brilliant on Saturday was'nt he! If we can just keep him fit I reckon he's going to have a massive season for us.

aaaaah man! how glad i am to have a season ticket this year! im hoping Dunny stays fit, cos if he does, then i predict a good season! He was absolutely magnificent on saturday, all he needs now is to chop his mop off his head, that must slow him down!? haha!

Mikey, thats because there are no other players like him!!!...The only reason that Dunny plays for Rovers and not one of the top 4-5 teams is because he is injury prone!!! To pay for that type of talent would cost 15-20m plus!!!

Very true that Mani! And I agree - if he was a 30 game a season man one of the big boys would have been in for him.

I am really happy with dunny, and hes going great. just thought i would add that id prefer him in the middle of a 4-4-2, with grella holding, and emo/gamst/diouf on the flanks, kalinic and benni up top.

so glad he is back to his best. I hope he can play all season injury free and who knows maybe break into that england squad for SA. I am getting ahead of myself but i just so want it to happen as Dunny has been through so much in his career and i don't want him do go down as a one cap wonder for england

Boys were are bein a little critical here.....i know wolves aren't world beaters but we created over 20 chances on saturday, were as free flowing as we have ever been n now we have around 5 TOP TOP players fightin to get in to our team!!!! Hows about "Guys, prove your better than what we currently have playing on the pitch and you can have a shirt on saturday"......to be fair to Sam we had an excellent balance between attack and defence and never looked like we could lose the game...why change the team????
