Benni Saga Drags On.

Benni Saga Drags On.

A formal bid for our top scorer is expected soon. With him falling out of favour with the national coach (again), the chance of him missing January and February through the African Nations Cup has evaporated..... Leaving his former boss to step in. (The following is taken from tribalfootball.com)

'Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is planning a bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy. The Lancashire Evening Telegraph says sources in London suggest that, now a deal for Claudio Pizarro is wrapped up, the 2007 FA Cup and Carling Cup winners will focus their attention on taking McCarthy to Stamford Bridge.

However, any approach for the free-scoring 29-year-old, who landed a Champions League winners medal under Mourinho at his previous club Porto, will not go down well with Mark Hughes.

Hughes is adamant that his star striker is staying at Ewood Park, and has already made it clear that he is under no pressure to sell McCarthy, plus there are no clauses in the layer's contract that could force Rovers into selling if a certain offer was tabled.'

Now I for one can't see us let him leave without either us recieving a large offer and Hughes is happy that it will beneift us in the long run.

McCarthy can't sulk his way to a transfer... and if the right offer doesn't come in he will be wearing blue and white again next season. Hughes is playing this fiasco absolutely spot on and he knows that whatever happens... His team will be mutual benefactors.

I can't see this happening. £8mill is a joke for his ability. I can't see Chelsea paying more than ten, which is the least we will hold out for. With that in mind I am very much in agreement with Mikey that Benni will once again don the blue and white of lancashire's finest.

To be honest its not like Benni will be gutted if he plays for us next season, he knows he is onto a good thing regardless, I think he just trying to push his luck.

I feel that if a player does that, they should be fined and reprimanded by the club who own him

that is a good thing about hughes, he does only let players go if we can bring in as good if not better quality, or it is going to leave us with some extravagant financial benefit. To be honest i really want Benni to stay, surely Himself, Bellers, JR and Derbs could help fire us to the top 5, all being equal id say we are better than tottenham on our day, but we just need to have a better home record next season. Bring Fortress Ewood back from the 05/06 season.

Me too.....just don't trust him. He seemed so honest when he first arrived but that has all evaporated now. I also have a feeling he won't score so many goals next season. I'm not usually a pessimist but a lot of fans sat near me in the Jack Walker stand were getting frustrated with him at the end of the season. Hope my intuition is wrong

I wouldn mind a ten million plus geremi and ferreira bid. Thats 2 decent defenders, we could pick up defoe for 8 mill, leaving us with 2 mill extra plus watever trasfer kitty sparky has been given and 2 defenders.

Yeah, but with Chelsea's arrogance they will probably expect to get him from "little" Blackburn for about £5M. From what I have heard/seen I don't think Chelsea will have £8-10m to splash on one player and if they do - he will be younger.

Give me Geremi any day but not Ferreira... bit too casual for my liking. What have you done Adrian???? we're gonna have Spurs on here this morning telling us that we are a thuggish small time outfit with no fans whilst they are all direct replacements for god.
