Blackburn's Latest Aussie Arrival!!!

Blackburn's Latest Aussie Arrival!!!

Vital Blackburn are pleased to announce that the latest Australian arrival to Blackburn Rovers will be to this very website with sasman joining the Vital Blackburn team.

Rovers have a history of signing Southern Hemisphere stars (mainly Australian's) and sasman has the potential to be one of the very best, obviously Australia's neighbour New Zealand have produced quite probably the GREATEST ever Southern Hemisphere import that Rovers will see, the legendary Ryan Nelsen!

Vital Blackburn's MikeyGamst had this to say: "Frankly having an Aussie on board that can speak bitterly after the crushing Rugby defeat will only make things better!!!"

Sasman's primary duties are to get a debate going on what we feel the Rovers starting XI could be each week and he will also pay more attention to the reserves, something which this website tries to do, it is just hard to find the time (these were BOTH ideas that he brought to the table himself!!!) He will also play his part in reporting the breaking news, with his being based in Australia potentially meaning this site should never sleep!!!

Some of sasman's theories are interesting to say the least, but he will be warmly welcomed onto the websites team of journalists (don't take this too literally, as I KNOW some people use this as a weapon against us, but we are fans when all is said and done, some people expect us to be professional journalists, which we aren't, well apart from roversman!)

He might not be available much at the moment, but BomBom still had this to add: "He wanted Rovers to sign Grella and Bresciano and now Vital Rovers are joining in by signing an unknown Aussie that hardly anyone has heard of either!!! Good to have him aboard and welcome from the land of my fathers!"

All that is left to say now is to wish the self-proclaimed "Thunder from Down Under" all the best of luck, and welcome him aboard, no doubt the VBers will do just that.

Welcome aboard dude Sas, great to see some foreign flair added to the line up, we will be a force to be reckoned with. I'm excited about this reserves focus. Sorry no quotes were forthcoming from me for the piece but having a sieve for a brian doesn't help at times. Good luck on your debut piece pal.
