Rovers- 10 Mill on a Striker...huh?

Another goalless performance has the press singing the rumours. This time, we are linked with a 10 million pound bid, a club record transfer, for Spanish Striker, Roberto Soldado.

The 24 year old is currently plying his trade for Getafe, and is reportedly set to sign a deal worth 45k a week (News of the world).

First of all, this player is class, but where on Earth would we pull 10 Million pounds from. That would mean selling McCarthy, Gamst, Diouf, Khizanishvilli, Righters and Mikey Delap, as well as clearing Salgado of the wage bill.

Great story there guys.... Lets keep it realistic and link us with Beattie, Heskey and another cheapie...

Surely Mark Hughes Sacking, Man U getting caned and Liverpool losing is enough for the press to talk about?

Benni = 3 million. Gamst = 1 million. Zurab = 1 million. Treacy = 1 million. Roberts = 2 million. Bunn 1 million. Judge = 1 million. See it could be done. But we'd still need to bring in a LM and another striker (4 strikers needed according to Sam). Who knows! I severly doubt we'd sign someone for 10 million though!

"lolllllll and that leaves us with nobody on the bench!" How do you work that out? Benni - Likely leaving anyway if the right offer comes in? Gamst - Contract expiring. Zurab - Out on loan anyway. Phil Jones is better! Treacy - Always out on loan... Contract expiring. Roberts - As i said above, we'd need another striker but Roberts is rubbish anyway. Bunn - Brown ahead of him and he's been loaned. Judge - Always out on loan and Doran is better. We will have the ability to sign a second player on loan (other then Di Santo) either the winger, creative midfielder or striker, which would leave us just needing 2 more players who could be got on a free or minimal fee ala Nzonzi!

10 mil? not happening. selling everyone for 1 strikers would be putting all our eggs in one basket and no one's going to go for it.

Ultimately, football is a business. Sorry to see Mikey go, but if it's for some wunderkind natural finisher, I say we have to make the sacrifices. I wonder what we can get for Sas....

Apparently Sas, speaking with News of the world has said the following........My future is out of my hands. Ultimately, I would love to stay at Vital Blackburn, were are deep into discussions over my future contract. However, its about the Delap Transfer. The kid wants to leave, once the club finalises his future, we will move onto mine. For the time being, and hopefully for the future, i will remain a VBER..........
