A Savage bit of kit

Savage_technologyEver a fan of modern technology (we’ve just purchased a Betamax video recorder) and a keen follower of football, TS was intrigued to hear that Premiership bruisers Blackburn Rovers were trialling new finance IT kit from Microsoft.

Apparently it has impressed so far, but perhaps its benefits are being overplayed a tad by those involved. Okay, it has been pointed out that the team hasn’t lost since beta testing began, but surely sound financial systems aren’t the answer to all of a footy team’s problems, are they?

Maybe TS is completely wrong and Blackburn boss Mark Hughes should take the plunge and replace one of its midfielders with a mid-market finance IT system. After all, it’s likely to fall over less than Robbie Savage.
