Beattie for Roberts swap?

Beattie for Roberts swap?

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce is apparentyl very keen to bring former Rovers player James Beattie back to Ewood Park - especially now knowing that Stoke are actively looking for a buyer.

But the twist has come in the form of Jason Roberts. Big Sam is allegedly willing to swap J-Rob for Beattie in the January window.

Allardyce is willing to take the gamble on Beattie but needs to offload before buying (as we well know) hence the swap with Roberts is mooted.

Beattie is rumoured to be very keen to jump at the chance to play for the club he supports and Sam likes Jason Roberts but is reported to be prepared to throw him in to the mix if it means acquiring Beattie.

I'd agree!! I have always been a massive fan of Jase but lately he has looked poor and has never really had a good run of goals in the Prem - deal him out!! Send Pedersen as well....

Like it too, just getting a new competitor into the attack might make the rest do their best.....cheers

Where did you hear that Stoke are actively looking? Pulis has reiterated that he wants Beatts to stay and bring in another striker. Kitson and Cresswell will go so I doubt that Beatts will aswell.

Bring him in, and kick J-Rob out! would be a great bit of business for us.. and im not saying roberts will do badly at stoke.. but it will be good for both teams if we freshen things up in front of goal!

He is a much better finisher than JR although not as strong at holding the ball up which could be a problem in our 1 up top system. It cant hurt to have another player who loves the club sweating blood for us. All for it

That does sound like a great deal if we can swing it, Beats always gets a few goals when he moves as well so should see us get a few points at least. May put in more effort for us seeing as he's a Rovers lad! Can we swapsy any more? Peds for McGeady Diouf for Bentley Andrews for a Fellaini's hair (best do in the league!) Footballers should always be traded like Panini stickers, no more transfer fees!
