Bounty Set for Benni Mc?
First of all. Let me get the report out of the way.
Today's press is reporting that Big Sam Allardyce has placed a 3.5 Million Pound transfer fee on South African International Benedict McCarthy. The 31 year old is apparently unhappy with the lack of appearances as he aims to make a return to the National team in time for the World Cup.
Allardyce is quoted saying
"At his age I`d understand if he wants to play first-team football. At the moment, he can`t get it here"
This is bound to cause a stir with the Ewood faithful, with many still remembering Benni's 20 Plus goal season at Ewood, and the talent he has infront of goal. Sam continues....
"There is a price to be met if someone wants to buy Benni McCarthy. But we would have to have a replacement for him to allow it to develop "
Another replacement? Hmmm, whats Kalinic doing then? We lose Benni, we then have Jason Roberts, Franco Di Santo (til January), Nikola Kalinic, David Hoillet.....all bar Jason Roberts have any premiership experience.
What proven striker can we sign for 3.5 million pounds in this time and era.....
Not Happy Sam!
