Big Sam ready to resurrect Duke
There`s a new name that could be about to added to the list of Premiership legends such as Hierro, Anelka, Campo and Djorkaeff…Nathan Ellington.
Doesn`t quite fit somehow does it? Try as we might our eyebrows seem to be permanently in a raised position after it was revealed the self-titled 'Duke` had left little ol` Watford behind for a spell on trial at Blackburn.
Now it appears that Sam Allerdyce would "like to try" and weave his magic shown in reviving the faded fortunes of some of the continents top stars at Bolton by "resurrecting" Ellington`s career.
Big Sam told the BBC "He`s only 28 so whatever went wrong, if we can put things right we`ll have a real player on our hands but he had to prove it in the few days with us…"
"I like to try and resurrect somebody"!!!
The Ewood Park gaffer added "This is a lad with a huge amount of talent and has a really good CV from his time, particularly at Wigan"…
Erm, "huge amount of talent"? No Sam, that`s just Nathan`s Watford wage packet tucked under an XXL shirt. But we`ll forgive your error should you sign him up.
