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

The booing could be at an end

Rovers could soon be without the services of Keith Andrews as Nottingham Forest and their new boss Steve McClaren are set to swoop to end the mass booing of the former MK Dons man.

Andrews is, shall we say, not the most popular of chaps at Ewood Park and with his limited ability 2 million will probably be seen as fair value for man who is a definite trier but is somewhat short of Premier League class.

The Daily Mail is reporting - 'McClaren will swoop for 2million Republic of Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews from Blackburn and take on his compatriot Andy Reid on a free transfer from Sunderland.'

I am guessing this news will be met with the majority approving.

If we are going to shed the deadwood this is realistically where we need to start - despite the harshness of the treatment of Andrews.

While the booing was completely unacceptable and IMO would never have happened if he was signed from abroad and not League One, this is the best for all parties. We do need a clear out to make way for new signings and to blood the youngsters into the squad. Taxi for Grella, Rigters and Goulon?

Finally, another one of Ince's flop signings going to be shown the door.

Whatever people may think of Keith Andrews, he has always been committed, always given 100% and never once moaned or whinged, despite the boo boys. There are a few whingers who could learn a lesson in professionalism from him. Whatever happens I wish him all the very best

I am an MK Dons season ticket holder and this pages was linked through the NewsNow website. I never knew where Andrews really stood amongst the Blackburn faithful but now I clearly understand.It is a shame he never worked out but a man in his late 20's going up 2/3 divisions would never be easy. Would love him back at the Dons was a great leader for us, just a shame he could not cut it in the big time. ROI performances have not been as though

Good for both player and club here, make abit of extra dolla and Andrews will get more game time at a lower level. Grella, Roberts & Goulon to go next hopefully and a few new signings!

If the lad goes,he should go with our best wishes,and not the booing of some of the morons, who think they know football.All i ask is 100 per cent effort,in that he was never lacking.He was a roadsweeper,in a team with no violinists,not his fault.

Good luck to him. He was given loads of stick but he never complained (aside from the water squirting incident... but whom among us wouldn't have done the same if not worse?!)

Well said blue_n_white99. I have been ashamed of some supporters when The Manager has called Andrews from the bench to sub for someone and has been booed before he has even kicked a ball. If they don't feel that they can clap politely, to encourage any player to do his best, they should just keep quiet. They are poor excuses of 'sports fans'. Personally I don't like Dunn and groan quietly to myself when he is introduced to a game but I don't boo him.

Aye, good deal all round if it's right. Only question is whether he wants to drop down a division, but I can't see him getting a regular start if he stays.
