Interaction from you the Blackburn Rovers fans is exactly what the site thrives on. It makes it more worthwhile from my point of view and means people are getting involved. sasman has followed in the footsteps of others by submitting this piece on Christopher "the Wall" Samba.
Prior to the January Transfer window, many had not heard of Christopher Samba. With nine Premier League games left and a few more FA Cup ties (hopefully), Samba is seen as one of our most talented defenders.
Central defence has often been a troubled position in our Rovers line up of late. With several players attempting to fill the gaps left by the injured Ryan Nelsen, the inconsistent Zurab Khizinashvilli and Andy Todd. Samba has slotted straight in, assisted by the return of the great one, the Admiral Nelson.
Big, strong, and surprisingly skilful with pace, Samba has shown the vision Mark Hughes had in him. Initially, Samba was to be trained up and given match experience to adapt to the Premier League. To every bodies surprise (and delight), his name is among the first on the team sheet with consistent superior displays over some of the best strikers in the league, Thierry Henry, Julio Baptista, Nicolas Anelka and most recently decimated the Manchester City front line.
At the tender age of 21, Samba is seen to be destined for a great future at the club, with our defence looking ever so strong with Samba, Stephen Warnock, Brett Emerton and Admiral pulling the strings.
I definitely believe that Samba is just as important to our squad as Tugay, Benni McCarthy and Brad Friedel, hopefully his future does lie with us, not somewhere else.
What do you all think on my man Samba?
