Expect the Beattie to Rovers rumours soon

James Beattie and Tony Pulis have been in a row as you may have read and after todays revelations that Beattie has not apologised to the Stoke boss, it has emerged that former Rover Beattie will be moved on in January.

Can you see what is coming next... yes the Beattie to Rovers rumours are just around the corner.

A spokesman for Stoke (yes that old chesnut), spoke to the BBC and said - 'I've been told by sources very close to the player that contrary to reports James Beattie has most definitely not apologised to Tony Pulis, nor does he feel the need to following a bust-up between the pair at the Emirates on Saturday.

'Furthermore his future at Stoke is now in the balance and there is, I'm told, every chance he has played his last game for the club.

'The dispute occurred following the club's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal. Pulis told his players he expected them to train on Monday despite a prior agreement giving them a day off to attend a Christmas party.'

Imagine this scenario - Chelsea tell Rovers they need Franco Di Santo back and won't let us keep him on loan till May. We need someone as a stop gap, a cheap loan signing to get the goals and to lead the line...

For once you can almost forgive the papers for making the story up... Even I can see it coming!

I'm worried about keeping Junior H at the club - Beattie isn't as good as Benni, Jace or Kalinic - would he want to warm our bench?

I wouldnt be against it... its just so predictable from a headline writers POV! Junior Hoilett as Bom reports is more bothered about being involved more - surely he should be?

Beattie had started to do what he'd done at other clubs, he was blowing cold after starting hot. He'd be a Big Sam type player but I'd personally prefer us to look elsewhere if we're going to be looking for anyone at all??
