Gary Bowyer: Future bright at Ewood Park

Rovers head into Saturday's final-day trip to Birmingham with their Championship status all but secured following a turbulent campaign on and off the pitch.

But 23-year-old top scorer Jordan Rhodes took his league tally to 28 against Crystal Palace last weekend and Bowyer has been similarly impressed by the form of starlets such as Josh King, Josh Morris and on-loan Chelsea full-back Todd Kane.

"Jordan's 23 years of age and you add that to the young ones we've got playing in the team," Bowyer told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"Jake Kean is 22, Adam Henley is not 19 until June, Todd Kane has been on loan, he's 19 years of age.

"Grant Hanley is 21, Josh Morris was outstanding on Saturday and is 21, Jason Lowe is 21 and Jordan Rhodes is 23.

"So the core of the club is a good young core and that is something to be extremely proud of and to build on, that's for sure."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
