Allardyce teaches the Rovers players a lesson
Sam Allardyce taught his underachieving Rovers players a lesson as he ordered his Blackburn players into monday morning training at 7AM!
After a poor display at Goodison Park at the weekend Sam wanted to remind the players that that level of performance will not be tolerated ever again and took drastic action - dragging every single Rovers first team player into the crack of dawn training.
Big Sam, speaking to Sky Sports said - 'It's something I did once before at Bolton. Hopefully, it has had the desired effect.
'Were they happy? I don't think so. But everybody was on time and we sorted a few things out.'
Sam wanted to put things right and I believe that this kick up the backside should work a treat. The Rovers players get paid plenty of money and to expect them to suffer for their terrible showing is more than fair.
In a side note the morning training session also allowed Allardyce to attend the great, late Sir Bobby Robsons' memorial service.
