NEW boy Chris Brown believes Blackburn Rovers have the firepower to blast their way back into the Premier League.

The 6ft 3in striker has put pen to paper on a two-year deal after joining on a free transfer from Doncaster and has immediately set his sights on winning promotion.

And Brown reckons Rovers’ four frontmen will help them in their quest.

The 29-year-old will compete with Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede for a starting spot with Luke Varney giving Gary Bowyer another option when he completes his move from Leeds United at the end of the month.

“I know the two strikers (Rhodes and Gestede) were outstanding and Luke Varney is being added to that,” said Brown, who has hailed his new club as ‘genuine promotion contenders’.

“You look at all the teams who get promoted from the Championship and they have three or four strikers who can compete with each other.

“That’s what the manager wants here. He’s said to me to come in and compete with the other strikers and if I do well I’ll hopefully get my chance to play.”

Brown arrives at Ewood Park on the back of a campaign of mixed emotions.

While Doncaster were relegated from the Championship the former Sunderland, Preston North End and Norwich City frontman enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career.

Brown scored nine goals in 43 games and won Doncaster’s player of the year award.

He admitted it will be a wrench to leave Paul Dickov’s side, a club he still loves and with whom he won two promotions.

But once Rovers came calling he had no hesitation in swapping Yorkshire for Lancashire.

And now Brown, who was urged to make the move by former Doncaster team-mate Tommy Spurr, cannot wait to show his new supporters why Bowyer snapped him up.

“I’ll bring a physical presence,” said Brown, who twice helped Sunderland win promotion to the Premier League.

“I like to work hard and I also enjoy the defensive side.

“But I want to be in the box scoring goals and the wingers we’ve got here makes it perfect for me.”

Rovers boss Bowyer is delighted with his new acquisition.

But he has taken exception to comments made by Doncaster owner John Ryan that Brown has been offered ‘10 grand a week by Blackburn’.

Ryan also said last summer that Rovers offered left back Spurr a ‘£2m deal’ to make the switch from Donny.

Bowyer said: “Contrary to reports, he is not on the wages that their chairman has stated and we are disappointed that for the second summer running he has made comments regarding a player’s wages that are both unwelcome and inaccurate.

“We’re delighted that Chris has agreed to join us.

“Hopefully he can be just as successful as the other free transfer we made from Doncaster last season, Tommy Spurr.”

Rovers did not disclose Brown’s wages.

But he is on less than £10,000 a week.

Another signing that will weigh heavily on an under pressure Gary Bowyer as we move towards the Christmas period with Blackburn Rovers well off the pace and sixth place slipping ever further away.

Another 2-year million pound contract, on the back of David Goodwillies £2.8m give-away and £300k pay-off, will have the FFP officials rubbing their hands together in December.

Even the bookies have Blackburn Rovers listed as 10th favourites which is a damning indictment of the general opinion on your prospects. And with start player Jordan Rhodes to be sold before the season starts the mood around Ewood Park will be sour before a ball is even kicked.

Last years issues generally seemed to be around strength on depth, up front when things dried up for Rhodes early doors we had no-one to step up. Getsede came in and weighed in with a good return. This signing is about adding another layer of strength in depth 9 goals in 43 would have made him 3rd top goal scorer at ewood last season. Doncaster only scored 39 all season , so I can imagine service was not great.

We need a bit mor elsewhere and we should be good to go, personally I would like to see Jason Lowe move into right back and add another center midfielder.

all ok by me so far.

We need a bit mor elsewhere and we should be good to go, personally I would like to see Jason Lowe move into right back and add another center midfielder.

all ok by me so far.
I think Lowe's best position is Right Back, especially when Evans is playing but it all depends on what GB thinks in reality.

I agree with you, we now have two proven strikers at this level, another we aren't sure of yet but he did knock us about a bit, scored against us and he also scored 25% of the goals in what was a pretty poor team overall last season.

If he works out we are going to take some stopping.

Added to that we have a more experienced striker arriving (Varney) who has never scored a lot of goals but does create chances and give us options, because it still won't be easy.

Still concerned about the right hand side of defence but we do know that GB is looking at options.

Season Tickets bought and I am actually going to get my first new shirt since Venky's took over, which will really annoy my wife as at the last count I had shirts going back 40 years in the wardrobe and refuse to get rid of them.

Err....no bazzer. Kean is no hero of mine. Getting rid of Lardy and replacing him with Kean was not an either/or.

Exactly. You made the assumption that the sacking/replacement of Big Sam would be beneficial. The two moves cannot be separated, as without the first, the second could not have taken place.

We need to address the GK problem aswell. Robbo was carrying far too much timber last season. I still think he can do a job at this level but must shed some weight. I don't trust Kean or Eastwood - to young and prone to a clanger.....

Training kits out at minute but not the new home kit , will treat myself I think this year when its out.

On the RB situation I think LB and RB and LW are the biggest concerns in terms of cover, we have good quality in terms of first choice ( assuming lowe drops into RB) but if lowe , spur or Marshall are injured we look a bit light. Was really disappointed with Adam Henley last season seemed to have really took a backwards step.

G B is probably doing the best he can with the many restrictions he faces. The financial situation will not allow him to go out and sign expensive players, so he is trying to build a squad that will be good enough to get promoted, but on a shoestring. A little bit like Burnley last season.
If, and when, promotion is achieved it will then be time to spend to strengthen the squad to Premiership standards.
Rome wasn't built in a day lads. We have come a long, long way in the last year, mainly due to GB. We have to trust him. We have no alternative.

Have to agree with Frenchie, Sam had to go, he wanted away anyway and it was only John Williams who persuaded him to stay.

Have to admit I supported Kean at the start, as I will support any new manager, my initial reaction being "Steve who?" but his position rapidly became untenable with the protests, totally the wrong choice.

Bazzer this is all water under the bridge, we can keep harping on about past mistakes but they are history, we can't change them, or we can look forward to the future which is what I am going to do.

I bet our win at Ewood Park didn't put you in a good mood, and I bet our promotion to the Premier League didn't put you in a good mood either. And likewise when we prevented you clowns from scraping into the play-off's thereby condemning you to a future in the lower leagues, I bet that didn't put you in a good mood either.

So Burnley's odd's for relegation give you a semi? Good for you!

But just remember Burnley were FORTH favourites for relegation from the Championship, and look how that ended up! I bet your excitement turned to floppy disappointment rather quickly last season didn't it.

Also consider your own clubs prospects with the bookies rating them as TENTH favourites! Can you believe it? TENTH! They are predicting you to have an EVEN WORSE season than last time.

Now that puts me in a really good mood!

Finally, a Blackburn Rovers fan with intelligence who can see the reality of the situation when all others are burying their heads in the sand...

This is a pathetic signing for a club that in its own words is expecting to be challenging at the top end of the division for automatic promotion.

Bowyer is edging ever closer to the sack with signings like Brown. If Rhodes goes in the next few weeks I can see a major backlash from disgruntled supporters.

Some Rovers fans bizarrely seem to think there will be no competition in the Championship next season, when in reality it is widely regarded to be the most competitive ever, with the three sides coming down, Norwich, Cardiff and Fulham benefitting from £60million each in parachute payments to keep their squads together and to fund an instant return. There will also be the likes of Derby, Wigan, Nottingham Forest, Reading, and Watford, chasing the automatic promotion spots. Then there are teams such as Brighton, Middlesbrough, Bournemouth, Ipswich, Leeds, and Bolton who will all be aiming for the top six. Not to mention promoted Wolves who could well maintain their momentum and aim for a second successive promotion. All of these teams will be better equipped than Blackburn Rovers in terms of squad quality and depth.

It all adds up to a fiercely competitive season and one which will require top Championship and, where available, Premier League talent to rise above the rest. This is why League One signings such as Chris Brown will see Blackburn Rovers flirting with relegation form the off.

A terrible signing and Bowyer will only have himself to blame when the transfer embargo prevents capable players from being brought in.

We need a bit mor elsewhere and we should be good to go, personally I would like to see Jason Lowe move into right back and add another center midfielder.

all ok by me so far.
I think Lowe's best position is Right Back, especially when Evans is playing but it all depends on what GB thinks in reality.

I agree with you, we now have two proven strikers at this level, another we aren't sure of yet but he did knock us about a bit, scored against us and he also scored 25% of the goals in what was a pretty poor team overall last season.

If he works out we are going to take some stopping.

Added to that we have a more experienced striker arriving (Varney) who has never scored a lot of goals but does create chances and give us options, because it still won't be easy.

Still concerned about the right hand side of defence but we do know that GB is looking at options.

Season Tickets bought and I am actually going to get my first new shirt since Venky's took over, which will really annoy my wife as at the last count I had shirts going back 40 years in the wardrobe and refuse to get rid of them.
We need to address the GK problem aswell. Robbo was carrying far too much timber last season. I still think he can do a job at this level but must shed some weight. I don't trust Kean or Eastwood - to young and prone to a clanger.....

We are going into the new season with more optimism than we have had for almost three years now.

No you've got me. Even filling in the blanks with rude words this doesn't make sense. I'm sure you think it's a very witty response though.

Actually Frenchie's right. We are probably two players (right back, centre half) off being a very good promotion bet. Can't see Keane getting in Van Gaal's team so he could be one ,and remember SC or NH as we all know him has already told us that we can have Zabaleta for £1 under his made up FFP rules. Although this has yet to be confirmed ;) Job done!

Exactly. You made the assumption that the sacking/replacement of Big Sam would be beneficial. The two moves cannot be separated, as without the first, the second could not have taken place.
Of course they can be separated Bazzer

the first (big Sams sacking) was imperative, needed and overdue

the second (the clown Keans appointment) was the wrong choice as his replacement - but we all know why now of course

but of course the first could have occurred without the second * even the then very sound Rovers board were getting `itchy` about the abuse BFS was receiving from all quarters, including the fans and the footballing media.
Have to agree with Frenchie, Sam had to go, he wanted away anyway and it was only John Williams who persuaded him to stay.

Have to admit I supported Kean at the start, as I will support any new manager, my initial reaction being "Steve who?" but his position rapidly became untenable with the protests, totally the wrong choice.

Exactly. You made the assumption that the sacking/replacement of Big Sam would be beneficial. The two moves cannot be separated, as without the first, the second could not have taken place.
Of course they can be separated Bazzer

the first (big Sams sacking) was imperative, needed and overdue

the second (the clown Keans appointment) was the wrong choice as his replacement - but we all know why now of course

but of course the first could have occurred without the second * even the then very sound Rovers board were getting `itchy` about the abuse BFS was receiving from all quarters, including the fans and the footballing media.
Have to agree with Frenchie, Sam had to go, he wanted away anyway and it was only John Williams who persuaded him to stay.

Have to admit I supported Kean at the start, as I will support any new manager, my initial reaction being "Steve who?" but his position rapidly became untenable with the protests, totally the wrong choice.

Bazzer this is all water under the bridge, we can keep harping on about past mistakes but they are history, we can't change them, or we can look forward to the future which is what I am going to do.

I've been asking you the same question for over 12 months now & you STILL haven't answered..... just the same old OUT WITH THE BLAH BLAH BLAH!!

Who should we sign?
Who should be manager?
Who'll buy the club from Venkys?

You are entitled to have an opinion, but when your opinion is one that is shared only by Dave and the multiple accounts of the sad attention seeker then you should not be surprised when it is scorned and ridiculed.

You sound as miserable as MattNewcastle, you are probably neighbours, are you also related ?

Last years issues generally seemed to be around strength on depth, up front when things dried up for Rhodes early doors we had no-one to step up. Getsede came in and weighed in with a good return. This signing is about adding another layer of strength in depth 9 goals in 43 would have made him 3rd top goal scorer at ewood last season. Doncaster only scored 39 all season , so I can imagine service was not great.

We need a bit mor elsewhere and we should be good to go, personally I would like to see Jason Lowe move into right back and add another center midfielder.

all ok by me so far.
I think Lowe's best position is Right Back, especially when Evans is playing but it all depends on what GB thinks in reality.

I agree with you, we now have two proven strikers at this level, another we aren't sure of yet but he did knock us about a bit, scored against us and he also scored 25% of the goals in what was a pretty poor team overall last season.

If he works out we are going to take some stopping.

Added to that we have a more experienced striker arriving (Varney) who has never scored a lot of goals but does create chances and give us options, because it still won't be easy.

Still concerned about the right hand side of defence but we do know that GB is looking at options.

Season Tickets bought and I am actually going to get my first new shirt since Venky's took over, which will really annoy my wife as at the last count I had shirts going back 40 years in the wardrobe and refuse to get rid of them.
We need to address the GK problem aswell. Robbo was carrying far too much timber last season. I still think he can do a job at this level but must shed some weight. I don't trust Kean or Eastwood - to young and prone to a clanger.....
Nicko hinting at new keeper this week.
Take the point over Robbo but lets not forget the guy nearly died, in that respect he didn't do too badly all points considering, although I still think he can be a bit slow getting down to his right, but he was like that before the illness.

To be fair to Kean he did a great job for us, but playing in the pre GB environment wrecked his confidence so much he became hesitant, as did Eastwood to a certain extent, we need to get one or both of these guys playing regular football elsewhere to get that back, sitting on the bench won't help.

These are two decent young keepers who need experience, keepers tend to mature late 20's and Robbo won't last forever.

Carney @ Hull 70 App 2 goals
Cairney @ Rovers 37 Apps 5 goals

Owd Nick, a closer examination shows HH started off the Big Sam thing again. I had merely passed comment on the banal free transfer comments. Of course we have to move on. I want us back to where we were when Sam was sacked at least. Greece have just shown us what less equipped teams can do. Up Rovers!

Just agree to disagree Bazzer. Can't believe you're debating on here when Rambo 3 - the historically accurate war in Afghanistan according to the yanks - is on ITV!

Have to agree with Frenchie, Sam had to go, he wanted away anyway and it was only John Williams who persuaded him to stay. Have to admit I supported Kean at the start, as I will support any new manager, my initial reaction being "Steve who?" but his position rapidly became untenable with the protests, totally the wrong choice. Bazzer this is all water under the bridge, we can keep harping on about past mistakes but they are history, we can't change them, or we can look forward to the future which is what I am going to do.
Owd Nick, a closer examination shows HH started off the Big Sam thing again. I had merely passed comment on the banal free transfer comments. Of course we have to move on. I want us back to where we were when Sam was sacked at least. Greece have just shown us what less equipped teams can do. Up Rovers!
Sorry Bazzer!

The 26-year-old has just one year left on his contract with the Canaries, but they are still demanding £6.5m from the Tigers for the winger.

What should really embarrass the brown nosed turdites is that our CHAMPIONSHIP player appears to be so much in demand that recently relegated clubs are falling over each other and selling good players to be able to afford him... At least according to the Daily Dingle.

Meanwhile in a pee-ridden bedsit in Bonleh, a recently promoted teams star striker sits next to his analog dial phone waiting for it to ring before the said recently promoted team becomes a recently relegated team - again.

But all he can here is the sound of laughter coming from the Turd board room as the Directors stuff 50's into seductively dressed promiscuous siblings underwear..
