Blackburn Rovers have had a bad few years, falling out the Premier League and then last season they lost their Championship status despite Tony Mowbray managing to help the team put a good run together towards the back end of the season.
The club had a huge transformation to their playing ranks this summer bringing in no fewer than 12 players, showing that the board are backing Tony Mowbray as the man to take the club back to tier 2 of English football.
Rovers have started the season by picking up 6 points from a possible 12 after putting together 2 straight victories in their last 2 matches. New signing Dominic Samuel has hit the ground running as he has found the back of the net on 4 occasions already, but the club are going to need to support him if they are to have a good season.
With this in mind the club should look to sign Rickie Lambert who is currently without a club.
Rickie Lambert – The former England international left Cardiff City earlier this year after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
Throughout his career Lambert has found the back of the net 224 times, with 99 of those goals coming when he has played in League One. With this record in League One Lambert would the perfect fit for the club and would support Dominic Samuel and the other strikers at the club.
Having played over 600 times in his career, including plying his trade in the Premier League with Liverpool, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion respectively, Lambert could bring a huge amount of experience to Blackburn’s team which could help the club have a successful season.
