Where Are Blackburn Rovers Heading?
With so many of the "rumoured" Blackburn Rovers targets part of the "Dad's Army" brigade i'm_a_blackburn_rover shares his thoughts on the direction we are heading... or not!
I know I'm not the only one who visits newsnow every so often, but nearly every time I hit the Blackburn Rovers link there is at least one new 30+ or foreign player who is out of favour at his current club being linked with us. Gomaa (Wael Gomaa is the guy in the articles image for those of you that don't know?), Sheringham, Montella, Okkas just to name a few.
Now, before you all think I'm being critical of Hughes and his targets; I want to make it clear that I'm not. Hughes has produced some shrewd captures whilst at the Ewood throne and it is difficult to doubt this.
My problem is getting my head round where Hughes wants to take the club. The players mentioned above have good reputations, but as I've seen on other threads, it will not give the youngsters a chance to mature.
Yet you could look at it in the way that Sparky feels the youngsters at the club aren't developing at the rate in which he would like to see, therefore he is taking a gamble on them hoping that they will improve in the coming few years.
If this is the case, then we may see the 30 something's ending their careers with us as well as a vast amount of youngsters being released. Would this not put us back to square one?
Sorry to ramble on folks, but it is an issue that I can't get my head around. What do you guys think?
