Thank God there may be competition for Joey Barton!

 

Someone on my favourite Rovers site is certain that Sam will watch you guys tonight and consider a bid for Martins and Beye. Not sure if that is good or bad myself.

Beye is a central defender isn't he? I guess he'll be brought in to replace Oujier (however you spell it). Perhaps you should try to ask for a part-exchange for Zurab Khisanishvilli-he is a very under rated player, and I feel sorry for him sitting on the bench all the time.

Beye plays mainly at right back and is absolute quality, not just ability but attitude aswell. Should be our captain. If he was to leave I think he would go to a better club than yours though <_<

Beye is a right-back, but can also play at cb.

I did say part exchange, and he is actually pretty good. Low wages, quiet, gets on with his job etc. the sort of player you could do with. You're not having Samba though.
