just got home from a lovely afternoon down at the club,had a 3 course meal and quick tour of the ground as a fathers day present from the kids (and the better half of course).All the staff were helpful and friendly,food was lovely-our youngest even ate for free and a nice little gift bag for each father. My missus has even said that she would like to go back for a proper tour as she found it all very interesting,could possibly be a fully fledged blue soon if i keep working on her ;)
Just wanted to mention it as the club sometimes gets criticized for things they do away from the football side of things.
Delighted Henderson may be coming back,I said about 3 weeks ago I expected to see him return on a season loan.The competition between him and Loach can only be a good thing. The recall option though is a slight concern,hopefully things won't come to that.
Wouldn't be at all surprised to see Stearman return now on a season long loan deal himself.
Has the deal for him to join Blackburn been "Rubber Stamped" so to speak?Grasping at straws here but from what I gather a big factor for him moving back there was that Gary Bowyer was to be named manager.Very strong rumours however that Tim Sherwood is the favourite for the job now.
The story in the Lancashire Telegraph suggests the deal may not be confirmed until Bowyer is named manager-which may now not happen!
the phone app is actually really decent.Guaranteed 15-20 mins of extended highlights after every game,all the player interviews and ive just seen theres footage on there from last nights awards evening.Well worth £1.49 a month even without the radio commentry.
such a shame to see him as little more than a squad player in an average championship side these days.I actually thought he would go on to be the more succesfull player of our 2 Darrens and whilst Darren Bent is fairing no better in the playing games side of things right now,he has at least carved out a decent career at the top level.
and slightly surprising,an attack of Murphy and Chopra/Nouble up top should see us ok.I guess even Mclean is knocking about somewhere as another option,even if I don't rate him.Certainly shouldn't be panic stations for us just yet.I really rate McGoldrick,very clever player and I hope we still sign him full time in the summer but I think we have enough in the squad without him to be ok.
