From Comments..."Big Sam better hope he hasn't lost his Bolton touch, or Blackburn could totter on the precipice of relegation this year. That band-aid approach to the end of the season should not be confused with a long-term answer. It will never stand up to the kiln that is a Premier League season"
Yes, I like kiln as a metaphor, it brings in burn and black as imagery. Initially, I thought it would be better for the Potters, but hey! After all, kilns are used to burn dead wood for charcoal, and there's some of that in the team, and even a crematorium is a type of kiln. Kiln him....
I guess you know that Big Sam's just signed his 4th foreign signing of the season? Young French midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, 20, who was with relegated French side Amiens last season, has signed a four-year deal at Ewood Park. He follows defenders Gael Givet and Lars Jacobsen and midfielder Elrio van Heerden in joining Rovers. Big Boss Sam Allardyce is still keen on Real Madrid's Ruud van Nistelrooy. Van Nettlerash would add some sting to the attack...
Sam, seriously, I know he's a big name, but he's as old as Stanley Matthews? You're not chasing celebs are you? This is Blackburn Rovers, not Big Brother? "Who'd have thought Bolton would get Anelka? Nobody," he said. "It would be a major coup if I could pull it off." Sam, 'arry Redknob can afford the Â£1.5m, and the wage bill at Spurs. Just 'cause you've all that Santa Cruz lolly burning a hole in your pocket... "The sort of salary he would be on at Real Madrid may be beyond us," Allardyce said. "But maybe he wants to come and play in England again and take less of a salary - then we'd be interested."
Yeah well, at least you're not buying Michael Owen eh Sam? "I need a striker that's going to be available for 30 games next season. That's not happened for Michael over the last four years."
