Mame Biram Diouf moved to Blackburn on a season long loan to Blackburn Rovers earlier this summer to gain first team experience where he'd be working under Sam Allardyce. He received his first start in a Carling Cup match against Norwich. He picked up all 3 goals for Blackburn and saw them through to the next round of the competition. Video of those goals can be seen below.....
The One - Hat-Trick (via MouthyTyper)
After the hat trick the media started asking Big Sam if that would result in a starting spot in the EPL, Sam through down a challenge to Diouf and said his spot was not guaranteed, apparently Diof responded in training and was awarded the start along side Croatian forward Kalinic. While not being able to stop the Gooners from winning the game, he was given almost a full 90 coming off in the 81st minute. The big news though was him picking up yet another goal He's really forcing his way in to a permanent position. I look forward to Mame making me put my foot in my mouth and becoming a quality striker. While it's still too early to pass final judgement he is making waves and is off to a great start on the season!
Sorry I was unable to find an acceptable link to the goal versus Arsenal. If someone finds one, I'll edit the post to include it.
