Adam Armstrong was given time to bed in at Blackburn Rovers.

After a bit of a disaster in the first half of the season at Bolton, the Newcastle loan striker was desperate to get back on track.

At Bolton, the striker had ended up out of position out on the left wing, before eventually being regularly left out the team.

Bolton’s Manager said he wanted the Geordie forward to stay on but not surprisingly he has moved on.

Reunited with Tony Mowbray, the manager who he scored 20 goals for when on loan at Coventry as an 18/19 year old, the payback has been stunning in February.

Starting five League games and off the bench in another, Adam Armstrong has been involved in six goals, scoring four and two assists.

His form has helped lead Blackburn to the top of the table and now looking a great bet to come straight back up.

Friday afternoon has now brought news that Adam Armstrong has won the Blackburn player of the month for February, hopefully with plenty more to come.

    Well done kid

    • Leicester Mag

      I’d stand corrected but suspect he may have more goals at 21 than Harry Kane. Where’s Statto when he’s needed?

      • Leazes.

        Have a look at transfermarkt much quicker…..it says three seasons ago Kane scored 27 goals with 7 of them in the Europa League, whereas Armstrong hasn’t scored in the Premiership at all.

    Good on you Adam. More to come I hope.

    dont understand..why he doesnt get a game for us..we have no one else

      Because he struggles badly at Championship level never mind Premier League.

  • Mrkgw

    Needs to play in the Championship to show consistency at the next level – seems to flourish at league one sides.

  • Wor Lass

    He did it at Coventry (league 1) and he`s doing it at Blackburn (league 1). He didn`t do it at Barnsley (Championship) and he didn`t do it at Bolton (Championship). The only other factors to consider are: a) he does well under Tony Mowbray (could be significant) and b) he doesn`t do well at clubs beginning with “B” – Oh, hang on …! Seriously, I don`t thinkthe lad has what it takes to succeed in the PL but he CAN find the net and some people do develop later in life – so good luck to him. It could be goodfor him if he continues to do well at Blackburn, stays with them at the beginning o next season and shows whether or not he can step up a level. He doesn`t need the pressure cooker that is SJP at the minute.

      Agreed on all points WL If Arma has a future at SJP then so has Mitro but that ship sailed long ago

    I watched him last year for Barnsley @ Wolves. For me the lad is electric and clearly has goal scorers instinct and no issue finishing. The problem he has had at Championship clubs is service, it would be the same if he was with us now.
    I just wishes he had been given an opportunity at the end of last season when we were dominating games.
    A top player and hope he comes back and is given a chance at some point as he is better than what we have.
