Devastated to leave ? This Blackburn chatter has been around for ages he was always going there. He had wanted to go for a while. Don’t buy this loving the club at all. Why be a back up keeper at another club when he can be a back up keeper here?
What has surprised me is that he is third choice at Blackburn. Teams usually only use 2 keepers in a league season. I can't see Blackburn affording to pay a lot in the way of wages to a 3rd choice keeper neither. Its almost a purchase for next season by Mogga. I'd like to see the finances of some of these clubs. Blackburn's revenue will be lower than ours, but they have quite a bigger squad. I can't remember them selling any players for big fees recently etc
NW's comments suggest the people supporting Pears went over the top to get him an improved contract @ Boro and play him. Interestly three young players have been released who have former Pros as fathers - Pears, Liddle, Stubbs. While one was given a new contract Kavanagh.
