Allardyce teaches the Rovers players a lesson

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.

its good to see that Sam has not taken this lying down and has punished the players for their performance. They do however have a great chance to get back on track tonight.

Let's see if it works... tonight shouldn't give us too much trouble (I repeated shouldn't), the real test will be at Villa Park!

We are home to Villa TD5 mate! tonight we need to play to the full potential we have - if we do we will win. If we dont, we are there for the taking at the moment!

Punishing the players by making them start at 7am? The horror, the horror!

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.
