Robbie Savage - Fulham Bound!
It`s inevitable that we need to spend this January, Roy Hodgson has already implied so suggesting that the balance of the team is all wrong and is partially to blame for our current position.
Therefore, it`s also inevitable that several names, many unlikely, are to be thrown into the proverbial hat during the coming days.
One of these is Robbie Savage.
The tabloids are today reporting that Fulham and Derby are both interested in signing the, currently, out of favour Blackburn midfielder.
Now Savage is one of those players who you just love to hate, his demeanour hardly endears him to the fans, that is, unless he`s playing for you, then he falls into the category of players who`d die for you.
At thirty three years of age he`s no spring chicken but at a time when our club desperately needs an injection of charisma and somebody to inject a bit of energy and brute force into our midfield, I have the opinion that he would be a good short term, maybe twelve month, buy.
The only problem currently on the horizon is that Derby, under the stewardship of Paul Jewell, could be prepared to make him captain.
Come on Robbie, where is more appealing? Is it life in the 'West End` of London or shut away in the market towns of Derbyshire?
