Since the €75million deal was struck between the two clubs in August, Keita has plateaued ever so slightly and, in his dual role as both an ex-Reds midfielder and Sky Sports' in-house Bundesliga shaman, Danny Murphy was afforded the opportunity to air his reservations.

Have we, I wonder, stumbled upon a perfect storm of managerial changes?

We had Roy Hodgson to stabilise a team that didn't know whether it was coming or going. That was great and successful.

But had he stayed in charge there's a risk that the team would have grown older and staler together.

My earliest memory of Blackburn Rovers goes back to 1995.

One thing to mention here is Danny Murphy. Murphy's gone to Blackburn in a position of some influence (we assume), and the first thing he's done is call on his old hunting partner. Now, if, as many people like to think, Dickson Etuhu is no good at football, who would be best placed to appreciate this?

Saturday was my first chance to see Fulham live this campaign. It was a perfect day to watch football and it turned out to be a perfect game too. It certainly inspired me to do a bit of writing again, and I though I'd have another go at a regular CCN post. A Monday morning alternative view of the weekends events, something a little off the cuff but hopefully something worth reading.
