Rovers Fletcher link is laughable
Finally. Finally, someone has come out and removed this 'Steven Fletcher is in line for a move to Blackburn Rovers' nonsense.
It was always likely to be a throwaway bit of gossip for a number of reasons.
The Lancashire Telegraph, the press and Sky Sports have today accepted that the move will not happen and I for one am pleased.
Think about it -
* The man is a (soon to be ) former Burnley player.
* He spent most of last season in a withdrawn role out on the wing, a position which does not need filling.
* He scored 8 league goals, yes I know we are hardly raking them in but still, for the money we could do much better.
* He is reported to be on the market for £6.5 million, which is roughly the entire summer budget.
*He is not really what the media love to call a 'Sam type of player'.
Time to move on.
