Spurs make opening bid for Samba
Rovers are back on the defensive after it has been reported that Spurs have made a bid of £10 million for Chris Samba.
In a world where Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka are worth close to £20 million in today's market I can only imagine the laughs bandying round the Ewood offices when the transmission came through from White Hart Lane.
Maybe it was on a par with the comedy THAT advert provided last week?
The Sun are reporting - 'Spurs do not want to spend that much (ed - tough) but are willing to offer some money while offloading a player such as Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, David Bentley or Sebastian Bassong.'
Lets do this chronologically -
Defoe wouldn't come to Ewood.
Keane would be too much in wages.
Bentley is too busy kicking balls into skip and wouldn't return, furthermore we have three right wingers in the squad.
Bassong would probably be worth it as it is a direct replacement but why swap him when we already have Samba?
Message to Harry - you expect everyone to pay top, top whack for your players and pay derisory amounts to other team's for theirs.
It doesn't work like that me old son.
