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

Junior makes Rovers future pledge

Good news to kick the afternoon off with as Junior Hoilett has affirmed his commitment to the club he came out of the youth ranks with.

Hoilett has seen his contract run down in the last few months and manager Steve Kean even put talks on hold until the season was over as he didn't want to disrupt Junior's blistering form.

But with the wait has come a risk that he could be on his way if the club didn't act to reward his ascension to first team certainty, a risk that Hoilett has assured the Rovers fans won't end up regretting.

Junior told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'Of course when you are not playing and don't know if you are going to come on and get any minute it is frustrating. Of course you get frustrated especially as a young kid you want to play.

'Steve Kean has been great for me, I have enjoyed the experience and I am looking forward to pushing on next season.

'Hopefully we will get something sorted (new contract). Of course I am happy with the club, I am enjoying myself and I am happy here.'

Fantastic news.

Good! Get the contract signed. IMO it will be the best piece of business we can do this summer.

Great to hear, he's come on leaps and bounds this season and next season with a few good signings around him he will only get better. Hurry up and Pass him the pen and paper to sign please Mr Kean ASAP.

This is a good start to the summer break! Get him to sign up, if we keep P Jones + Samba (Which IMO I think we will) and sign a new Left Back (Wayne Bridge?) and maybe a Right Back (Micah Richards?) as Salgado is loosing his legs, a Central Midfielder (Charlie Adam/Scot Parker?? We can try!) + J Jones if we can keep him and atleast 1 GOOD Striker (Demba Ba?). I think next season will be an exciting one! Let's hope the new owners invest on transfers in this window!

Hopefully this can be sorted in next couple of weeks, He has been incredible since xmas, and is one for us all to get excited about

Get him signed up! Don't let him leave the room until pen and paper have met and he's a Rover for the next 5 years! Cross fingers that this is the first of a series of good news items.
