I woke up this morning on my day off and sat down to watch the early morning sports report on Sky Sports News (why not... the Missus had gone to work so I could work in a nag free environment) and as usual there isn't a lot of news on Rovers.
This is purely because our beloved boss Mark Hughes is very good at keeping targets secret.
But one thing that came up about 10.15 was an interview with Rovers target man Jason Roberts, with recent specualtion by the completely none London biased media (lol) linking Roberts with a move away from the Lancashire equivalent of Heaven.
The interview took place in Grenada where Roberts is promoting his excellent Jason Roberts Foundation and I feared the worst, I thought he may sound disgruntled or unhappy.
What happened instead was that Roberts was walking along a beach stating that he really hoped his strike partner (and best friend) Benni McCarthy would still be with the club next season so that they could push the club forward together.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, MikeyGamsts' second favourite Blackburn player stated, 'He'll be in South Africa thinking things over at the moment, but I know he has enjoyed his time here and I hope he knows this is a club that is going places.'
He also added 'It is difficult when clubs come in for you but I am more than confident he will be here next season.'
Whilst Jason did comment on how frustrated he was with last season this was purely due to the lack of games he played - "The end of the season came to quickly for me but I am looking forward to making the most of next season".
He looks and sounds like a Blackburn player of the 2007-2008 season and anyone who has spoken to me about JR knows that you have one happy camper typing this article.
