Allardyce Is What's Wrong With Rovers?!?!

Allardyce Is What's Wrong With Rovers?!?!

Why oh why is no one crying for Allardyce to go? He is what is wrong with the Rovers, him and his band of 'has been' players he has brought in...Diouf, Chimbonda, Kalinic etc.

We need Hughes back and his brand of football, not this 'kick it and pray' stuff served up week after week. We have become a laughing stock again in the Premier League. Has no one noticed, we're always last on MOTD on TV. All we get is a couple of minutes of very poor quality football displayed by 'bandits' wearing the blue and white shirts they are not really fit to be wearing.

Benni has class. We all know he can play, but he must be frustrated at being part of such an amateurish set up as Rovers have become since Hughes' departure. Uncle Jack would turn in his grave if he could see them now. They are a disgrace and deserve to go down. They really belong in the 1st Division with the standard of kick ball they play - can't bring myself to call it football, cos' it ain't! Sam do us all a favour...go, and go now.

Go back to Bolton and take all your band of 'has bin's' with you, then maybe we might have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Personally I can't say that I agree with MICHAEL KEEGAN, however, this was put forward as an article so had to be used!!

well cant agree with most of this but im dissapointed with kalinic that money could have been spend on keeping derbyshire or buying another striker that was ready to play frm day one. If we get relegated kalinic will leave then its not really gonna be a longterm buy is it.But one thing i dont get walker u tellin me u have to put every article that ppl submit on the main page

Why are we posting this crap on our website? try posting your opinions on the forums you moron. "why oh why is no one crying for alardyce to go" try checking the forums again on that one! this is no more than a forum post, and you say you have to submit this as an artice, its a disgrace

Hand on heart I have to admit I agree with a lot of this article. I disagree about Kalinic he looks a promising player for years to come but otherwise... I watched my 'great goals' dvd from christmas and couldn't help but notice the difference in play from a few years ago and now. Were we rolling in money then? No. The mindset is what is different. Even from Hughes era the football was excellent on just as small a budget. Fans pay to be entertained simple as. With more negative 'hoof and hope' will come lower attendances and more financial woes. It's a vicious circle...

Why oh why are some people living in the past? There's no point in trying to cling onto past achievements and past stars. Face facts - Rovers are no longer the 'rich kids' - BSA has probably had a smaller budget to work with than any recent Rovers manager. Sale of quality players have been forced on him. Mark Hughes left because he had taken Rovers as far as he could go - he thought the grass was greener at Eastlands! Until we find a new owner Rovers have to live within their means - the alternative is to experience the dort of harrowing fiasco that has engulfed Portsmouth! As for 'has beens' - he is giving a chance to promising young players like Hoillet, N'Zonzi, Jones, Ollson and Kallinic - hardly 'has beens'

To answer you aadil4rovers and rover23 isn't Vital Blackburn about opinions and allowing people to share their's?? As I've said I don't agree with it but it was put forward as an article suggestion (earlier in the week) so I've added it, as I have countless other articles that people have submitted over the years. Is it fair to hand pick and only put forward the ones that we like or agree with?? Maybe it is a forum post but it was submitted to be used as an aritlce so I've used it as such, sorry dudes I'm not going to turn things away just because I might not like it or agree with it that's not the way Vital Blackburn is meant to work, or does work!!

agreed york. while he has brought in older players probably past their prime, he's also brought in a number of young players for the long term and these players will learn from the experienced ones.

last on MoTD! That is serious folks!

I agree with aspects of this post, but in general the players that BSA has brought in have shown promise and they have been essentially bargains. Let's not forget we were hardly world beaters when Hughesy was in charge and that was prior to the influx of sugar daddies to the Prem. I am a but dismayed by BSA's tactics and it pains me to see us below other "lesser" teams. I hope the board keep the faith with Sam - remember he has only been in the job just over 12 months and look where we were before he joined!!
