Take-Over Holds Transfer Key

Take-Over Holds Transfer Key

The summer transfer rumour mills are already busy churning out tentative stories about major transfers and who is going where.

Much is regurgitated drivel used to fill the voids in the minds, oops I mean papers, of standard journalists; stories such as Bellamy`s 'imminent` return and Sav`s proposed move away.

However, amongst the quagmire of spurious claims there is little else about the Rovers. Why is this?

Well I have a theory. The reason we are not seeing Rovers linked with players is because we probably aren`t looking at many at the moment and this, I feel, is because the take-over is closer than we are led to believe.

I could be very wide of the mark but indulge me for a few minutes whilst we explore this notion.

Normally during the weeks post season finale most clubs are attributed interest in a regiment of targets, 90% of whom are just fabricated stories with tenuous links that makes Man City`s takeover look like a formality.

However, we haven`t really seen this at Ewood, with only a handful of names, Bellamy, Zamora, Baird, Haestad, Koumas and Beattie linked. Heck, even a deal for everyone`s favourite Congolese striker has yet to materialise!

I feel this is because the board and indeed Hughes are holding fire until the take-over is complete, hence generating additional revenue, possibly altering targets.

We have heard Williams talking about Hughes` targets and a number of names have been drawn up but I feel little progress is being made until the take-over is finalised.

It makes perfect sense. What would be the point in bringing in someone and then two or three weeks down the line, realise you have additional funds and they could have been used to bring in someone of greater ability?

For these simple reasons I feel that the take-over could be about to happen, sooner than we think which will raise the curtain on us being linked to everyone linked with Spuds.

Hmmm....it's a possibility alright but over the last few summers we've been in the habit of picking up players with the minimum of fuss and hype. Off the top of my head, I can't remember hearing anything about the deals for Nonda, Berner, Samba, Mokoena, Nelsen etc until they had actually put pen to paper.

We often wait until late on to move for targets don't we, we would have maybe expected this slightly sooner this summer (seen as we have the Intertoto Cup also) but like you say in the article the chances are we were waiting for more on the takeoever (and like you also say news is breaking!!!) so it is more than a possiblilty the chances are we are holding off for signings as why settle for pandapops (as good as they are LOL!) when you can have champagne (as we possibly could with extra funds!)

I say your point irish, and I was going to make a not of this in the article but normally we are linked with names. For istance last summer, all the talk was of eidur, mido and benni and this was being floated about at roughly this time. Still my second story would suggest that my initial thoughts weren't wide of the mark.

LOL merlin but your lot are quite a bit in front of Spurs aren't they dude, so your standard of player will usually be above most won't it. Having said that though Spurs are linked to virtually EVERY player aren't they!

Im sure they will try to get the takeover sorted soon so that Hughes can add quality to the team, as we know the Rovers 1st tem does not need a lot done to it but a little bit of flair and inventivness never hurt anyone. It'll be intersested to see who Hughes can bring in with a lttle extra money in his hands.

The money will be good, but I don't think it will change Sparky's thinking on potential targets anyway dude?!?!
