Hughes Awaiting Santa's Reply

Hughes Awaiting Santa's Reply

Blackburn Rovers' interest in Roque Santa Cruz first came to light several weeks ago, all went quiet until it resurfaced again to again go quiet once more. Now it is claimed that Mark Hughes is awaiting an answer from him.

The news that Hughes might go for Paraguayan International Santa Cruz has been met with mixed feelings, but reports today (in the Daily Mail) are saying that Sparky is looking for Santa Cruz to give him an answer this week over a proposed £4.5 million move to Ewood Park.

With Sparky still very much in the hunt for a new striker, Santa Cruz fits the mould and at £4.5 million is not ridiculously priced (as most are!!!) and would make a good addition to the squad, even though personally I don't think he is needed!!!

Given the choice of Santa Cruz or James Beattie (who is the alternative) I know who I would rather, and it isn't the player with previous ties to Ewood. What about you guys?!?! As always you know what to do, comments below.

Like I say I REALLY don't think we need another striker, but if Sparky says we do who are we to argue!!!
Out of Santa Cruz and Beattie, even though Santa Cruz has no previous experience in this country he is the FAR better player, and a FAR better option to bring in.
Although personally I didn't even realise things had got to such an advanced stage with Santa Cruz (if the papers are right for a change!!!) as they have (but then again why should I LOL!) with us now demanding an answer.

you might need him to replace the want-away mccarthy if his heart isn't in it this season

Maybe Sparky wishes to bring in another striker to replace a striker once the January window opens. Bring him in now, let him settle, and replace either McCarthy or Roberts. Well, it's a theory...

Santa Cruz over Beattie any day, Hughes will get the best out of him and could make him very good i feel, he made Benni adjust to the premiership so why can't he with Roque,adn Roque will be very good in the Uefa cup anyway. Yeah i thought it would never get this far and before the price was £8 million so £4.5 a fair price really. Quite excited about this signing really now.

Decimus Poole - That is a pretty decent theory you have there, and could be one that may very well prove true?!?! Altho I think that if a player stays beyond this transfer window unless it is on Sparky's terms I think they'll stay until next summer.

If we are going to get taken over then we should wait until january to get a good striker.

Make no mistake, this would be a great signing.

Well Sparky has already admitted that he'd like to bring another striker in and 5 (6 if you insist on counting Jeffers) is simply too many no matter how you look at it, so I'd say it must be curtains for Roberts or McCarthy. Maybe Derbs out on loan or something?
