I think Liverpool shud cash in on Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz & Keane Partnership will be formidable along with Torres.

i think big sam should sell rsc......get about 20 million for him......and then with that money buy a good defender......good midfielder....and a decent striker....and play roberts and benni up front....they showed what a great strike force they are.....and there's always derbyshire who can help out

Santa Cruz moved already. This player will force his way to any clubs who is bigger than Blackburn and who pays him double. He made it clear already and how do you want to stop a want-away-player? He already forgot that he is an "outstanding" player at Blackburn and he will be a "nothing" compare to new players who will come to Man City this and next seasons. This sickening wage demand will keep his mouth shut, that's all he is interested, money nothing else.

On his current form, none of the top 4 will be interested in Santa, so the only club likely to offer what Rovers want for him will be City.
However, I still think Santa would want to go if they came in for him.
I don't think Big Sam would stand in his way.
I'm sure he will soon realise that Rovers desperately need a good, solid defender (especially if Warnock leaves), a good solid midfielder and a right winger who can beat a man and cross the ball more than once every blue moon.

15 million or so would certainly help.

RSQ is Everton bound as he just wants to play prem football not in the championship with Citee or Blackburn next season.

If he wants to go and another club bid for him, Blackburn can't really stop him from leaving!

They've fallen apart since last season... The only way he'll stay is if big sam gets them scoring goals and back on winning form - The table is so close this year, it only takes a few wins to get yourself into the top half of the table so its well within their reach!

I'd like to see how Santa Cruz got on at one of the big 4, having watched him closely last season I think with his positional play, technique and strength who could prove himself to be a real top class player

Sell him to City, Hughes doesn't know what he's doing. So Blackburn get the money without the problem of playing a good team.

Oh, and make the City pay up like they pretend they can
