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

With Skill and Labour

This weeks article from Big Sam could just be the biggest hint that a Rovers takeover is about to go ahead because it's the equivalent of a covering letter sent with a CV to a potential employer.

Big takeovers like the one we're about to have foisted upon us never end well for the incumbent manager.

I think Hughes at Manchester City is the probably the longest serving manager after a big money takeover.

Seriously, who would trust Big Sam to spend 100m?

His history doesn't paint a good picture when he had money to spend at Newcastle, and his scouting network must be set up to find bargains at bargain prices and as soon as those clubs see Sam has money ... the price of their average players would rise to suit.

So who can blame Sam for getting himself noticed and in the minds of chairmen looking for a new manager?

very valid point there. I will be very undecided on whether to keep Sam or not. Though i cant uoubt his talent at finding youth, and working with golden oldies, i think its the middle age bracket he cant get the best out of, and thats where we need it!

Sam's one and only club which allowed him money to spend, was at Newcastle. His record there was poor, doesn't seem like Sam is a manager who can handle huge amount of transfer funds if it's made available. He can wheel-and deal his way out of trouble, that's for sure. Anyway, by the time the takeover happens, Sam will probably replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid or Rafa Benitez at Inter Milan!

TBH No-one has ever gone newcastle and spent money that has won them trophys, everyone is allowed a blip, funny how Hodgson got the liverpool job after his unsuccessful time at rovers when we was one of the leading players though and his signings to date at pool has not been to inpiring or eyecatching, Sam has a good record of managing some top top players be it if they are at the end of their careers, id certianly back him with funds because if anything he has proved whilst at rovers he also has a good eye for a poromising young player, something rovers future needs to be built on
