How much money have the poultry farmers got to stop Blackburn looking like turkeys?
Right now they are in the top half of the table, but they are just six points above the relegation zone having played a game more than most down at the bottom, and their first five fixtures of 2011 are tough.
Chris Samba has nailed his colours to the mast, but they're not Blackburn’s, and he may be reunited with Mark Hughes at Fulham. Phil Jones has been linked with Chelsea, but that move might be scuppered by his injury, and Jason Roberts was always desperate to leave.
The club have long been shopping in the bargain basement, but without Big Sam’s expertise I wonder if they will find any rough diamonds to polish.
Roque Santa Cruz has been heavily linked, but will they be able to take on the burden of his huge wages? Will anyone want to with his track record?
POSSIBLE INS: Nils Petersen (Energie Cottbus), Charlie Adam, Roque Santa Cruz
POSSIBLE OUTS: Chris Samba, Jason Roberts, Phil Jones
