Andy Todd to Stay at Blackburn?

Andy Todd to Stay at Blackburn?

With Andy Todd's Blackburn Rovers career seemingly over as little as two weeks ago after coming back in the former captain has impressed with Mark Hughes suggesting he'll now be staying at Ewood Park.

When handed this glimmer of hope following Stephane Henchoz's sending off against Newcastle United, having previously failed to feature since the opening week of the season Todd came on for the second 45 minutes, then started against Nancy in the following game. An early injury in that match seemed to have cut short his comeback but he recovered in time to face Reading last weekend and put in a fine performance that has been heralded by Hughes. Sparky told the Lancashire Evening News:

"Andy Todd hasn't had a great deal of football, but he's had a hell of a week. He's come back into the fold and against Reading was as solid as a rock. I'm pleased for him.

"I think clubs have made enquiries about Andy.

"They've asked about his availability and whether he could go out on loan, but there's nothing doing on that score."

Often in life one persons misfortune is another's gain; the same seems to be applying to Toddy hear as with Zurab Khizinashvilli ruled out with injury then Stephane Henchoz through ineligibility for the UEFA Cup then suspension in the Premiership Toddy has taken his chance with both hands so the teams lining up to take him in January including Premiership sides Charlton Athletic, Sheffield United and Wigan Athletic may have to wait a while longer to gain his services…

I have been VERY surprised by Toddy's comeback and how well he has played. His Ewood career seemed over (AGAIN!) but with us having a case of déjà vu he has come back again when he appeared down and out to give Sparky something to seriously ponder. I was more than happy to see Toddy go but it appears the motivation he's been looking for to kick on again has happened so maybe he is worth keeping, at least until the summer?!?!

Any ideas for a replacement if he went?

We've been linked with a fair few, the one who's name just won't go away, and is supposed to be arriving in January without doubt is Egyptian International Wael Gomaa, but I don't know what is going on here? Will he sign; won't he? We'll soon find out.

Todd's ability was never in doubt, hes a big stron no nonsense centre back in the typical english mould, if only he could control his temper at times

His temprament gets the better of him too often. If he can stop the red mist disending he'll still have a Rovers future. If he does nothing wrong he can't warrent being dropped can he?!?!

I think he as solid as they come centre back wise. The fact he is club captain suprises me.. when Nelsen back he should be made the captain. Superb leader.

Certainly worth keeping around if only until the summer. If we get embroiled in a real dog fight we'll need him.
