Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce was left happy despite Rovers’ 2-0 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Allardyce couldn’t argue with the goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney as they were two superb goals. The fact that we kept with Man United until the end was pleasing to him.

Allardyce told Sky Sports: “They have got two goals through good finishes from Berbatov and Rooney. You cannot argue with their quality but we have stayed right to the end and that is pleasing.

However, the thing that Big Sam was unhappy with was a goal from Nikola Kalinic that was disallowed for offside even though it clearly wasn’t.

He added: “We cannot have the opportunity taken away from us after we had worked so hard. It is a disappointing scenario to be left with.

“This is so far onside, it is not a close one. It should have been given. With four minutes to go who knows what might have happened.


The heavy defeat to Chelsea was poor the defeat against Manure was nothing to be ashamed of and now things get easier, at least they are meant to be when Portsmouth come to Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon.

  • That was a clear goal what (its ma u dont award it Fergusson might complain ffske) you were robbed 2-1 would have been far fairer.

  • he was a metre on-side! disgraceful call that robbed our future star a first prem goal and manure of 4 mins of difficulty

  • I expect a result v Pompey, despite some porr away form we are a cracking home side – lets get into em. That offisde call was a disgrace.

  • I understand Big Sam in this one. Kalinic scored his first premier league goal. And even the refree canĀ“t take the goal from him. United has the refrees in their pocket, anyone who remember Man u vs. Spurs xmas 2004 and the diallowed goal on overtime for Spurs?

    It looks like Kalinic is starting to show his muscle. I think he had a great game against Peterborogh and he did score against Man U. I count this scoring as his first one. Next season we will have two strikers who can compete with Sutton and Shearer. I talk about Kalinic and Di Santo. Kalinic will be a topscorer material next season and I doubt Di Santo can put Drogba or Anelka on the bench. He will join us permanent after this season.
    Then Big Sam have to give our strikers some playmakers.
