Rovers linked with Eidur

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...

he was a class act - not sure if he is now though!

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...

hes a good player Gudjohnson, but is he a goal scorer? id prefer Beckford tbh. so... players we are linked with, to date: beckford, Gudjohnson, beattie, soldado, van nistelrooy, ben arfa, mcdonald, have I missed anyone?

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?

The annual link to Eidur is back! lol by the time we sign him he will be about 46 years young...
03/01/2010 23:59:00
lol probably Sas, i think weve been liked with him for like 3 or 4 seasons now?

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
