No More Rovers Arrivals This Month?

No More Rovers Arrivals This Month?

The summer transfer window closes at the end of next week but any further arrivals at Ewood Park in 2007 are unlikely, according to Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams.

Rovers have a quality squad in place, and although many might not be taking them that seriously they are quietly going about their business with a squad more than capable of easily getting into next season UEFA Cup via the League.

So with this in mind it is understood that Mark Hughes is happy to bide his time and will not be dipping into the transfer market again this year, even though MANY feel a right-back and a central midfielder (which I WOULD completely agree with) could be beneficial. However, with a takeover looking increasingly possible Hughes seems content to wait until January, when he should have extra funds available to quite possibly buy bigger and better?

John Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Mark is happy with the squad as it is and we are unlikely to do any further business in this window, unless something is put to us that really excites us."

Obviously, as you would expect Williams has dangled that carrot of hope that a player or players could arrive, but it doesn't look like it does it.
Personally I am happy with the squad as it is but still think that a midfielder (even if they were only on loan?!?!) would not hurt, but in Sparky we trust!!!

Extra funds available?!?!?! For Godsake- we recieved around 120$M for the TV rights!!! I'm afraid having a new rich owner would make other clubs naming a much higher value for their players, so PLEASE get a normal RB and a decent PLAYMAKER ASAP...

IsraeliRover - Yes record amounts were received BUT do not forget Rovers have overheads to play, plus they gave a lot back to the fans anyway. WHY spend for the sake of spending though?!?!
I've said it a million times but I think buying in a right-back is a waste of time and money, a midfielder YES maybe so.
In January Sparky SHOULD have extra cash, so why by someone ordinary, when he could maybe get someone special in January with a little more money?!?! I know the transfer policy will not really change, but if Sparky has that little extra he could use it in stead of bring beaten to the punch.

Well- I obviously did'nt mean to spend just for the sake of it...However- watching rovers every game they've played this and last season (via the net) makes me feel rather vulnerable in the RB position- Ooijer is slow and old (33), and Emerton can't really handle those pacy wingers can he. However- our bigger problem is CM- I don't know when Reid's comin back- but we do lack that creativity in there...Tugay is 37, Mokoena can't create nothing, Dunn gives a good game here and there, and Savage isn't yougn either......

I would completely agree dude a central midfielder with genuine creativity skills that could play in this League is needed, but if Sparky has not earmarked anyone than Rovers can realistically afford he has to wait until January when he then SHOULD be able to. A possible scenario could be to get this player on loan with a view to signing him when the money is their in January???

Perhaps you're right. How about getting Danny Murphy- 30.5 years of age? Unless of course, there's a better player?!? {Besides the lovely Gera}

I think if we do get a CM it wont be until January and knowing Sparky it will be someone no-one has heard of!!!!!

I think with Dunny coming back to full match fitness, he COULD be the creative spark. Having Tugay as a mentor can't be bad for him! However, the right back position does need cover. I don't think we could get anyone better than the people we have for a decent price. Unless, as MG said, he unearths another hidden gem for somewhere...
