Allardyce reckons we have a match winner

Allardyce reckons we have a match winner

You have seen on television, in films and in wedlock those marriages of convenience.

No we have our own and it is the Jason Roberts/Sam Allardyce relationship. Neither are each others best friend but they will both back each other if it is mutually beneficial.

J-Rob bagged another winner last night in the match against Newcastle and Big Sam is just pleased that Jason is firing.

Allardyce spoke to Sky Sports and said - 'Our match-winner at the moment is Jason Roberts.

'He was nearly our match-winner against Chelsea, he was our match-winner against Wigan and he made the goal for himself again, and he won us the game.'

But there was also reason to be cheerful in the grander scheme of tricks as Rovers played as a team and won as a team using a new system.

'It was a fantastic victory for us, a really pleasing one for us all and one I think in the end, we deserved.

'We changed the system to cope with the attack of Newcastle United.

'The very potent front two and the delivery from the wide men has been an outstanding force for them in the last three games, and we felt we had to stop that.'

We have a match winner but he is on loan at motherwell. A great hattrick for nick blackman and seems to be scoring most games

Have to agree there 'del' I know the teams aren't so good in Scotland but he seems to know where the goal is in any case. Get him back in January Big Sam!! J-Rob seems to play better as an angry Super Sub. Hope Sam keeps him on the bench against Spurs to get him riled up enough to score another winner.

The way I see it Roberts return to scoring goals is perfect because a team may actually be willing to buy him off us. I do not rate roberts and never will because he can not finish of good chances regularly enough. However can any of our strikers?
