Danny Murphy joins Blackburn

In a move that seemed to slip under everyone's radar, Danny Murphy has signed a 2 year contract with Blackburn Rovers.  Apparently when you reach a certain age you just give up.

I remember when Murphy was a young highly tipped prospect at Liverpool and now he's 35 and so basically dead in footballer years.  Back then the world was his oyster - he had potential, the drive and nothing could stand in his way, other than never really becoming that good.  It's like when you spend forever making a curry completely from scratch but then it just kinda tastes ok in the end and you would have been better just making that pizza you had in the freezer.  That's what Danny Murphy's career has been like.  A frozen pizza.
