Who is Safe, Who is not!

Who is Safe, Who is not!
With a takeover seemingly on the cards, it is time to go through our squad, and see who will be safe, who might go, and who, well, are out the door!

Safe- Going Nowhere!

Paul Robinson- The former England Number one has more then held his own this season, pulling off save after save. Unless a big club comes in with megamoney, Robinson will see his career out in the blue and white halves

David Dunn- Doesnt need an explanation. The guy might have a worse streak then a tampon (in for 1, out for 3), but he is loved by all Rovers fans and the club. Legend

Chris Samba- Made captain as a sign for the future. Will lead us into the new era

El Hadji Diouf- As long as Sam is in charge, Diofy will terrorise the flanks,and deservedly so

Michel Salgado- The Spaniard will be the marketing face for Rovers in the subcontinent and Asia, being a former galactico

Morten Gamst Pedersen- Whilst he can be so inconsistent, a new contract means Gamst will dissapear for a season,before firing again amid more transfer rumours

Phil Jones- The future of English football. Will need a massive fee for him to leave Ewood Park

A Flip Of a Coin!

Martin Olsson- The performer of 2009, Olsson has not lived up to expectations. A quiet few weeks could see him slip down the order of Josh Morris or Pascal Chimbonda can force there way in

Ryan Nelsen- The Club Captain, whilst a starting centre back, could find him self on the outer if fresh legs are brought in. A home return for NZ in the A-League would is on the cards, and its a matter of when, not if

Brett Emerton- Mr Versatility just has not regained his form Post World Cup. A home return could also be on the cards

Vince Grella- Finally starting to show the goods, though is it too little too late?

Benjani- New arrival, kind of think he wont be long and only here as we couldnt get anyone else!

Gael Givet- Whilst he provides good cover in defence, he really needs to step it up a notch and take more responsibility when called upon

Steve Nzonzi- 2009 player of the year seems to have some attiude issues. And with yet another defensive midfielder coming on board, who knows what is around the corner

Nikola Kalinic- A striker needs to score goals. Apart from 2 gifts Niko might just become a 6 million pound flop

Junior Hoillet- Promised so much, delivering so little!

Good Bye!

Jason Roberts- A true professional, but his days are numbered. The confusing thing is, his style actually suits our long ball rubbish!

Keith Andrews- I think the Irishman will bid farewell. He works hard, and does some sort of job.....but, well, you know.....

Pascal Chimbonda- I rate him. Really do. For some reason, Sam doesnt, and he will be let free

Jason Brown- Poor comments from Browny means the end of his spell as the Number 2 for Rovers

So what are your thoughts? Have I got it completely wrong!

regardless of personal feelings, maybe every outfield player (apart from lord nelsen) above 30 should be allowed to leave the club should the takeover happen, would much rather see younger (english or british) come in and push the team forward in 4 or 5 years, i personally dont wanna see the club turn out like man city or chelsea, granted they are doing well, but to me just not the way id like the way our club should be run.

lets not get carried away here, the takeover group posted profits of $118 million yes thats dollars not pounds, it equates to around £70 million, they also ranked 67th in the world for small business's , So yes we will get new owners, but this far no talk of any budget for players has been mentioned, the only mention of cash is from the companys woman owner who say's the group will need to locate some cash from somewhere to invest in the club once bought!!!!!

little too harsh on our admiral, olsson just needs more match time, and i still have faith in niko if we can get him more support...

Agree w/ Dommy Walker re: Olsson. I was a bit surprised he didn't start the year on the left of midfield...picking up where he left off last year. -Niko's stock is dropping by the day. -I think Sam's been a bit rough on Jason Roberts. He can at least get a shot off. -Emerton-Which World Cup are you talking about? '06? He's been stinking it up for 3 years. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

Still the black sheep is the this Kentaro involvement in the club, can't figure that one out. I think we get some young players from India, when we get Indian owners to get the contact to the asian part of Blackburn - just thoughts...cheers

The nucleus of the squad for me will likely remain the same, players such as Olsson with potential should be kept where I sit. Very thought provoking this Sas!!!
