    Sam Allardyce has become increasingly frustrated by the continuing saga involving Morten Gamst Pedersen and signing a new contract. He has now issued the player with an ultimatum. Speaking to the press, Sam said: "I'm sick of it. Speak to the chairman. It's his baby, not mine. He deals with the finances. To be honest, they'll sort it out between them, and if he makes a decision, then I'll find out. Hopefully it will be the right decision, but we're going to need one — and in the next few days — because it can't keep lingering on and on and on."
    Asked whether he felt that Morten would be at the club next season, Allardyce simply said: "No".

    Reports in the national media are linking Newcastle with a £1 million move for Rovers striker Jason Roberts. Last week Roberts expressed dissatisfaction at not getting regular first team football at Rovers this season.
    In other news Morten Gamst Pedersen's agent has told the Lancashire Telegraph that his client is happy at Ewood Park but would not be drawn on whether he would sign a new contract. Rovers are hoping to get a decision from Morten ahead of the Arsenal game.

    Rovers have beaten Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor to continue their dominance over local rivals Burnley. In a poor match which Rovers controlled for the majority of the time, it was Dunn's penalty which settled the match.
    Rovers now move into the top 10, while Burnley are now facing relegation back to the Championship.

    After Liverpool's fortunate 2-1 victory over Rovers, the Liverpool manager was his normal gracious self towards Rovers.
    Rafael Benitez: "They (Blackburn) have a style and they are a team that plays this way under this manager (Sam Allardyce). We won, so they have to be thinking about whether the style is good or not. Some people have to talk before the press conference or after because it is more difficult for them to do a football job. I think it is a model for all the managers around the world, their style of football, his behaviour. It is the perfect model for all the kids and I'm sure all parents will enjoy this model and encourage their kids to be the same. The style of football, I think, Barcelona are thinking of copying."
    Clearly annoyed by this and various other comments that Rafa has made over the last few years, Sam Allardyce responded: "It was only because Liverpool have a go at me and because I am entitled to respond when I get criticised by Rafa Benitez. If you don't understand that over the last few years you must be deluded. Not this time but many other times I have been criticised personally by the manager — all I said was they got six bookings at Manchester City away so they are digging games out now rather than the flowing football they played last year. We had five bookings and 25 fouls given against us which was, for me, a wrong reflection on how we played. We haven't come here and hung on, we've dominated the game for long periods."
