Roberts Commits Future To Rovers

Roberts Commits Future To Rovers

Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts has played down recent newspaper reports that have said Paul Jewell wants to be reunited with him at his new club Derby County.

Roberts knows that there is competition for places at Ewood Park now, and he has to battle with Benni McCarthy, Roque Santa Cruz, Matt Derbyshire and Maceo Rigters (even though he doesn't feature that often) for a starting place but doesn't want to leave, as he sees this as a healthy thing and wont let this work against him, so he will used this as a positive thing as he wants to remain a part of what promises to be another successful season at Ewood Park.

Roberts said: "We've got a lot of talent in the squad, not only up front but in all different positions.

"There's competition for places everywhere, and if you start to look at that and become negative, you're going to have a real problem.

"I think the best way of dealing with it is to remain focused and try to earn a chance to impress
."

Not everyone is keen on JR, but he has PLENTY to offer Rovers and I would be sad to see him leave, but don't think he will anyway.

Good positive words from a man slowly changing my opinion of him. I just wish he could finish better.

At least he's changing your opinion dude, some others seem unwilling to give him even the slightest break.

Here's a thought...I thought JR was playing outta his skin to impress other teams in the transfer window. Maybe he is playing outta his skin for a place in the starting line-up, and it's McCarthy that's going in the transfer window...? I'm sure that idea will get boo'ed most/everyone on here...It's not that I wish that, it's just a thought...

It could be the case dude, but I've ALWAYS maintained that JR is the player that we are now seeing (and in all fairness we HAVE seen glimpses of that between his injuries.)
He's a big part of the future plans for Rovers I'm sure, and the best is yet to come.

Roberts has been unlucky with the timings of his injuries. HWhen he got a run in the team he started scoring then got injured. Now he's back and playing better than before - I hope he continues and then the goals will start flowing!

As for McCarthy, I can't see Hughes letting him go, especially as we want Euro footie next season
