Once the player who commanded the highest fee in Europe, Italian striker Christian Vieri, is to have a trial at Blackburn so Sam Allardyce can have a look at him and assess whether he would be worth offering a short term deal to.

Vieri is well past his peak but Rovers boss Allardyce must feel he can get something from having a look at him – hence the trial.

These are initial reports and they are from Gazetto in Italy as well so take them with a pinch of salt but maybe this might trail might happen.

But what can we get from a 35 year old striker who is way past his best… if anyone can, Big Sam can.

  • it did say monday that he was meeting up at the training camp in austria in view to securing a one year deal but with also the possibility of him joining the coaching staff

  • A little worried but I suppose, (if he’s fit) he does provide an experienced option – ie to cover the Samba scenario. The young Hoillet and Paul Gallagher look more promising bets on which to build for the future? A player coach option for Vieri might be worth considering to get his experience? No doubt Big Sam knows what he’s doing.

  • Cue the long balls!! This reeks of Sam’s old style of play of humping the ball up to the big, cumbersome front man, ala Kevin Davies!! I don’t want to be too negative, but with Dunny, Reidy etc.. we are far better than a long ball team…

  • who knows whats happening here, a trial aint bad, and im sure with all these young strikers coming through or being signed they will need a striker coaching them, might be a smart piece of business, he could play in cup games resting our main strikers, and train our youth

  • I think Sam knows what he is doing and it costs him nothing to bring him in for a trial, we wont commit until certain, surely?!
