Ben Marshall: Sealed Blackburn move

The winger joins Rovers for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £1million, and has signed a four-year contract at Ewood Park after undergoing a medical and agreeing personal terms on Tuesday.

Salford-born Marshall started his career at Manchester United as a schoolboy before moving on to Crewe, where he worked under Rovers' assistant manager Terry McPhillips and played in the same youth team as defender Grant Hanley.

At 17 he signed a professional deal with Stoke, enjoying several loan spells over a two-and-a-half-year period at Northampton, Cheltenham, Carlisle and Sheffield Wednesday.

Impressive displays during his time at Hillsborough prompted Leicester to make a move for Marshall in January 2012. He ended the season strongly for the Foxes with 18 appearances and four goals.

The England Under-21 international made 61 appearances for Leicester, scoring nine goals.

He is the third player to leave the King Power Stadium this summer following the exits of Jermaine Beckford and Richie Wellens as the Midlands club aim to fall in line with the Financial Fair Play regulations.

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
