Rovers linked with Eidur

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has made Jason Roberts available for transfer and will also likely receive bids for Benni McCarthy in the near future so it seems some striker vacancies will be made available at Ewood Park soon.

So who is being linked with arriving?

Well, first James Beattie and now, slightly more interestingly, Eidur Gudjohnson.

Eidur has been struggling at Monaco this season and is keen on a move away - so word has it that Sam has made contact about bringing back a man who he managed at Bolton.

It makes sense and it looks like the fee could be about 2 million to secure his services...

It couldn't happen... could it?

good player but not a goalscorer more like dunny I don't think he is the man needed but still better than Beattie...

Do Leeds want Roberts for Beckford? Or Reid? Or Diouf? Or MGP? Or any other of our crocked, under-performing duffers? Unlikely I know but the talk is he wants to move up. A couple of million looks a snip based on his display against a decent Utd defence.

He looked class today. He doesnt work especially hard but he has that "x-factor" that can change a game...

Dont think so... a few of those were just paper rumours so I am not sure we coudl properly say we were "linked" but the first three of those names are certainly prospects!

I think our strikers tend to be contained by opponents and do not get the space and time they need. Maybe BSA will sacrifice an out and out striker for an effective attacking midfielder / striker? Someone who will cause problems for the opposition defences (like Dunn) and create more space for the strikers?

lol probably Sas, i think weve been liked with him for like 3 or 4 seasons now?

Class act! But he plays more of a second striker, so not exactly a goal poacher, I think. He's having debt problems too, in Monaco. So this might be true, you know.

He certainly has that little touch about him and he would score more than say someone like Roberts... so it cant be a bad link?!
