If you thought yesterday was bad...

If you thought yesterday was bad...

After the long, hard day that was the Phil Jones saga yesterday you could be forgiven for thinking we deserve a day of relative calm.

But oh no, you would be wrong. Rumours are circulating that Arsenal are ready to swoop into Ewood Park with a truck load of cash and expect Rovers to send Chris Samba back in their direction in exchange.

Samba is known to be exploring his options this summer and will hardly have been thrilled to see Rovers lose their main youth prospect to Manchester United yesterday.

Steve Kean and the Blackburn management will be loathe to lose Samba as it will mean having a completely new centre back pairing for the start of next season.

But money talks in football... Brace yourself for another nervy 24 hours.

Unfortunately I think Big Chris will be off to Arsenal. On another note - some possible good news - Stephen Warnock will be back in a Rovers shirt within the next month .Very good source :)

A signing would come in handy about now, and one which shows rovers mean business, Take a brave man to ring Rovers today though asking about Samba after Jones has just left the building

If there is no 'get out clause' rovers should state that "he is not for sale at any price."

Lol. Was that a joke which completely went over my head, Glen? Or was it just the most random comment of the week? Don't panic, people, we have faced adversity before and we've always beaten it, so have some faith. Venky's at least give us a chance of keeping hold of Samba, whereas under the Walker Trust, we would have no chance of matching Arsenal's wage after. Wenger, as I said before, £18m or ***** off!

He was buying it if he needs to throw his toys :-p, but yes i agree No-one could have kept him at Rovers, his mind was made up, but it may just fall foul as its being investigated, Samba on the other hand needs to get his head down, act like the captain and keep the players focused. I'm sure Rovers will have players in by the time they return for training
