'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Allardyce backed by his Carling opponent

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce, who is under pressure to turn in better performances and results from his side, has been backed to do just that by Martin O'Neill.

The two men go head to head tonight in the crunch Carling Cup Semi Final first leg, but taken out of the context of tonight's game, the man known as MON believes Rovers can't go wrong with the man we already have.

O'Neill, speaking to Sky Sports said - 'I would absolutely back Blackburn Rovers.

'I didn't realise they had not won for so many games, but I wouldn't think with Sam in charge they will have any problems.

'I don't know anything about him being under pressure, but we're all only a couple of games away from a crisis.

'That has been proven, not just recently, but over the last number of years.

'It's a precarious enough job, but at the end of it all, we're all just two results away from potential disaster.'

Pretty wise words to be fair from Martin O'Neill - hopefully when he says two resulst away from potential disaster he means Villa losing both legs of the semi... we can but hope!

i think this is actually a bit of mind games to put pressure on big sam

it worked. Sam sat down the entire game, and the one time he did get up there was a loud cheer from the fans.

There's a lot of one upmanship in football - showing solidarity for a troubled opponent can be a damning put down! I think the whole BSA pressure thing is intended by troublemakers to bait Rovers supporters and unsettle the team - the sad thing is that too many Rovers supporters are rising to the bait! The good thing was that for a good spell last night the Blackburn End got behind the team, raised spirits and drowned out that noisy lot from Birmingham!
