Rovers boss Gary Bowyer in India for transfer talks

First published in Sport

GARY Bowyer is holding talks with Venky’s in Pune about potential additions to his squad after Blackburn Rovers’ January clear-out reached double figures.

Bowyer is in India for a rescheduled meeting with Rovers’ owners and among the subjects on the agenda is possible recruitment in the final days of the transfer window after DJ Campbell and Ruben Rochina departed on loan.

Rovers are allowing fringe players to depart and Campbell has joined Millwall on a temporary deal until the end of the season, with Rochina moving to Rayo Vallecano in his native Spain.

A deal has also been agreed for Bradley Orr to join Toronto on loan until the end of 2014.

That follows previous loan exits for Alan Judge, Alex Marrow, Yann Songo’o, Jordan Slew, Kellen Daly and John O’Sullivan this month.

Bruno Ribeiro moved to Brazilian side Clube Atletico Linense on a free transfer, while Rovers also allowed Anthony O’Connor to stay on loan at Torquay.

David Goodwillie and Leon Best are still among those who could leave before the end of January, as the club try to reduce their wage bill and fall in line with the Championship’s incoming Financial Fair Play regulations.

But Bowyer is looking at potential signings and is speaking to Venky’s about what funds may be available.

The Rovers boss had been due to travel to Pune last week for a regular catch-up meeting with the owners, but the visit was rescheduled because of the FA Cup third round replay at Manchester City.

Bowyer instead flew out on Sunday night, not accompanied by managing director Derek Shaw on this occasion.

Campbell has linked up with his former Leicester City and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway at Millwall, after talks between the two clubs and the players’ representatives.

Negotiations had taken place about the percentage of Campbell’s sizeable salary that Millwall would be prepared to take on.

The 32-year-old, who has 18 months left on his Rovers contract, did not feature in Rovers’ 4-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

He has now flown out to link up with his new Millwall team-mates at a warm weather training camp in Portugal, but under the terms of the loan deal will not be eligible to face Rovers when the two sides meet on March 29.

Bowyer said: “With his ankle injury in pre-season and the arrival of Rudy Gestede, DJ has found his chances limited and at this stage of his career he needs to be playing games.

“The attraction of Millwall for DJ is that he can go back to London, where his family are from and he’ll be reunited with Ian Holloway. The pair have a lot of time for each other.

“Both parties felt that it was the right move and it will be good for him to get some games under his belt.”

Campbell is currently on police bail until April after his arrest in December by National Crime Agency officers probing spot-fixing allegations in football matches.

The striker has not been charged with any offence and had since made four appearances for Rovers.

Rochina will be unveiled by Rayo Vallecano today after moving to the La Liga side for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old, who also has 18 months left on his deal at Ewood, had struggled for regular football at Rovers since returning from a dislocated shoulder.

The Spaniard’s move to Rayo Vallecano is with a view to a permanent deal, but Bowyer says he will be watching the player’s performances closely.

Bowyer said: “Playing in his native Spain appeals to Ruben, so we’ll monitor his progress.”

A loan deal has been agreed to loan Orr to Ryan Nelsen’s Toronto.

The loan is for the entire 2014 MLS season, which runs from March until the end of the year.

GB continues to put the club on a better footing and it will be interesting to hear who he would like to sign. He just needs to pick the correct central midfield with Gestede and Rhodes up front and we should start to win games again.

It may be me but is anyone else a little confuses as to why Venkys have not come here to speak to GB. They could discuss whatever they want after or before training. Training GB should be taking before a massive home game against Derby who are in the play off positions Rovers are trying to get in to. Burnley fans need not respond as I have zero interest in what you have got to say.

Err no.

You have to sell to attempt to reduce your wage bill to avoid further punishment in respect of Financial Fair Play.

You are £56 million in debt, and losing approximately £3 million every month. You are in a a financial mess.

We have signed the player we wanted, another one would be nice but we're not doing so bad with what we've got.

I don't think Gary gets as much credit as he should. He has had to take a club in freefall and turn it around. Ok we have a few top players for this division like Rhodes and Dann but he has had to deal with the rubbish he has been left with and bring in half a new team (the core of teams like Derby have been together for years). A lot of pundits state it is hard when even big clubs make a lot of changes to the playing staff never mind a club that was in such a mess last season. Even though there is a lot to come from the team, the way he has got them to gel so far is a credit to him. This is down to what he has already stated in bringing in the right characters (i.e good attitudes) and creating a happy working environment. Don't forget he is still only young as a manager and he would probably admit he still has a lot to learn but he has the making of a really good manager. He needs to work a bit on his tactics (more adaptable) and substitutions but he will get that with experience. Earlier on in the season he was crediting our team by saying the opposition changed tactics earlier in games to try and nulify us but what he should have been doing is trying to find ways of working around this. Also in a way he is also complimenting the opposition manager because what they did worked for their team and I think he could of learnt a thing or two off them i.e changing tactics when we are under pressure in certain games. It will be hard to get promoted this season but I think we can do it if the likes of Dann, Robbo, Rhodes, Gestede, Spurr and Evans stay fit (actually not having any lengthy absences for any of the squad) which is a big ask but lets wait and see.

Well said. People would do well to remember just what a ridiculous situation Bowyer inherited at the club last summer when he was given his first managerial job. He has had to face challenges in his first six months as a manager that most managers in this league will never have to face.

He has walked into a disaster zone. A squad of players the majority of which were/aren't fit to wear the shirt, on inflated Premier League level wages, brought together by a succession of incompetent decision makers (Kean, Singh, Appleton). Not to mention that this huge squad had narrowly avoided relegation (thanks to Bowyer) last season and was heading into the abyss.

I would go as far as to say he is working wonders to have done what he has so quickly. To have overhauled the squad so quickly, brought in promising young players and have the club in with a good shout of a play off spot in his first season in charge. Look at the clubs Rovers are in and around in the Championship. Every one of them has been better organised than us and has been assembled over a number of years. Not thrown together in a few months whilst the club makes cut backs.

Keep up the good work Mr Bowyer. Get Best and Goodwillie out and bring a couple in and it will be a great January. I for one appreciate what you are doing. Its a shame others are too worried about Rochina's 'talent' going to waste to feel the same.

Quite right too and they should get abuse, ten fold.

What THEY SHOULD do is do what all sensible business people would do who don't have a great knowledge of that sphere and appoint somone who does to run the club. They are then given targets, a budget and delegated to run the club within that remit.

You don't see Rogers running off to America whenever Mr Henry clicks his fingers, like Venkys little lapdog Bowyer.

No doubt when he returns, after the collective rimming, he will once again gush about how nice Desai is (or should that be 'Madame'? PUKE!!!!) and how they have the best interested of the club at heart. Even though he should have the nous to realise that they are the most hated people in Blackburn and should mention them as little as possible.

This is all played out to the background of two total batterings in one week. One where it was truly men against primary school boys who gave up at half time and defended worse than the French outside Paris. The second battering was the most worrying in it's absolute paucity. Defending, attacking, control or any sign of footballing skill and spirit where not apparrent as Bowyer stood statuesque on the touchline as his charges where given new back passages by Forest.

But that's ok because 3/4 into the transfer window that could decide the clubs future the transfer decisions have not been made and the club is embarrassing itself on the pitch. Promotion or bust is the 'word' but given the clubs actions since the summer both in employing a negative rookie and then allowing him to sign plenty of rejects, only to let the greater number of them go out on loan 4 months later, after making less than a handful of appearances between them, does not shout 'promotion' but of bringing down the Venky losses before administration.

Is this squad capable of clawing back the forthcoming 10 point defecit and thus saving itself from league 1 oblivion?
Who knows. But in every case the club will be in a worse state than Wolves next season, and they were labelled the armageddon club by the assorted numpties that infest the Rovers fanbase

If venky's pay his ticket to get there it doesn't matter really and they won't come here because they will get abuse that's my opinion.
Quite right too and they should get abuse, ten fold.

What THEY SHOULD do is do what all sensible business people would do who don't have a great knowledge of that sphere and appoint somone who does to run the club. They are then given targets, a budget and delegated to run the club within that remit.

You don't see Rogers running off to America whenever Mr Henry clicks his fingers, like Venkys little lapdog Bowyer.

No doubt when he returns, after the collective rimming, he will once again gush about how nice Desai is (or should that be 'Madame'? PUKE!!!!) and how they have the best interested of the club at heart. Even though he should have the nous to realise that they are the most hated people in Blackburn and should mention them as little as possible.

This is all played out to the background of two total batterings in one week. One where it was truly men against primary school boys who gave up at half time and defended worse than the French outside Paris. The second battering was the most worrying in it's absolute paucity. Defending, attacking, control or any sign of footballing skill and spirit where not apparrent as Bowyer stood statuesque on the touchline as his charges where given new back passages by Forest.

Not to put too fine a point on it possibly because of all the abuse they have received in the past?

GB does appear to have carte blanche at Ewood now, there doesn't appear to be any interference at all which is a refreshing change.

Personally I don't see a problem with him going over there, he won't be surrounded by any potential media circus, which would probably be more disruptive, and a few days away might give him a chance to think.

You should never have got rid of that footballing genius, he had you in your highest position for several years and bought your best players - and yet you booed him onto the pitch prior to every single game.

You have to sell to attempt to reduce your wage bill to avoid further punishment in respect of Financial Fair Play.

You are £56 million in debt, and losing approximately £3 million every month. You are in a a financial mess.

What THEY SHOULD do is do what all sensible business people would do who don't have a great knowledge of that sphere and appoint somone who does to run the club. They are then given targets, a budget and delegated to run the club within that remit.

You don't see Rogers running off to America whenever Mr Henry clicks his fingers, like Venkys little lapdog Bowyer.

No doubt when he returns, after the collective rimming, he will once again gush about how nice Desai is (or should that be 'Madame'? PUKE!!!!) and how they have the best interested of the club at heart. Even though he should have the nous to realise that they are the most hated people in Blackburn and should mention them as little as possible.

This is all played out to the background of two total batterings in one week. One where it was truly men against primary school boys who gave up at half time and defended worse than the French outside Paris. The second battering was the most worrying in it's absolute paucity. Defending, attacking, control or any sign of footballing skill and spirit where not apparrent as Bowyer stood statuesque on the touchline as his charges where given new back passages by Forest.

But that's ok because 3/4 into the transfer window that could decide the clubs future the transfer decisions have not been made and the club is embarrassing itself on the pitch. Promotion or bust is the 'word' but given the clubs actions since the summer both in employing a negative rookie and then allowing him to sign plenty of rejects, only to let the greater number of them go out on loan 4 months later, after making less than a handful of appearances between them, does not shout 'promotion' but of bringing down the Venky losses before administration.

Is this squad capable of clawing back the forthcoming 10 point defecit and thus saving itself from league 1 oblivion?
Who knows. But in every case the club will be in a worse state than Wolves next season, and they were labelled the armageddon club by the assorted numpties that infest the Rovers fanbase

You seem to be obsessed with Burnley being in Yorkshire. Is Blackburn in Gujarat? It looks to me like it is. Fact is you should have learned this at school but did you go to one?
As for your owners not worrying about the huge debt owed to them – believe me they will be. They have no affinity to Blackburn at all as Pune is not Gujarat. They are Indian businessmen and will be very tough. They will still be shell shocked at the folly of their investment and they will be working hard to find a way to offload it with minimum losses.

They bought the club on the cheap if the billionaire Venkys want to sell the club then fine there will be another buyer for this great club with a great history.
Blackburn Rovers have £56 million debt and down the road Bolton Wandrers have debt of around £150 million.
Do you think that Shiekh Mansour have any affinity to Manchester ? or Roman Abramovich with London ?
These are Rich Billionaires who buys football clubs horseracing and motor racings to play with in their spare times.
So the Venkys only turn up at Ewood Park in once in a blue moon and have a £5 million pound mansion in Bolton they bought from Neville , and they feed millions of poor Indians in their hometown in Pune India and built a hospital for the poor.
That is what billionaire are like extravagant lifestyles of a wealthy billionaires while many Indians living in abject poverty and the town Blackburn with Darwen is just a typical northern working class town with run of the mill folks.

Hi Modan. Let’s get this clear. I was responding to what I thought was a stupid posting. I have lived and worked in Blackburn and there are some fine people as there are in all of East Lancs. But you may or may not know that it has changed immensely over the years. E. Lancs is now an under privileged area. Probably before your time but we had industry here. That means there is little scope for Blackburn or Burney to improve much on their wealth as football clubs from their communities. Neither are big towns and therefore neither has a big population to draw on.
As for Chelsea and Manchester City it surely has occurred to yo that they are located in big cities and please do not compare the wealth of the Venkys to Abramovitch or Shiek Mansour. Why they bought I don’t know but I guess for reasons of vanity. The Venkys wil not have bought Blackburn for the same reason. I am pleased to hear that the Venkys feed millions in Pune ( a place I know well incidentally) but I somehow I have the feeling that this is not quite right. I think they probably employ a lot of people who are then able to feed themselves. Even if they are as benevolent as you say in Pune this does not mean they will be as benevolent to the club and supporters of Blackburn Rovers

BRFC were relegated by Venkys as they knew nothing about running of this club.The Club is in debt of £56 million and Venkys now has to back this club or sell up to another mega rich bloke somewhere in this planet.Football is not a profitable business as you know it is just a rich man's toy to play with in his spare time.If venkys are not benevolent to this football club as you say then you know football will never will be a profitable business it is just sport for million of people enjoy ona Saturday afternoon.In history football was a poor man's sport in northern UK as Rugby was a rich mans sport n UK.

Thanks Chris, LOL' I had missed Dave's ramblings, they are getting worse though, probably close to his period.
I recon more than a few minutes spent in the company of the likes of cruzy_cruz, dingle dave and their ilk and I would be slitting my wrists...
Cruz, Dave, Eckersley and Matt , 4 arse-men of the apocalypse ?
Simple

Don't read the threads.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion

Just some of us don't revert to personal abuse when we don't agree.
I agree with points of view from many posters and disagree with points raised by the same contributors and leave it at that
So what made you think that little jibe was meant for you ? Was it the arse or the apocalypse reference that tipped you off ?

I just didn't t realise you were so sensitive, you seem happy enough to insult the manager and his players on a regular basis.

Still one mans insult is another mans banter, sorry cherub, I will try not to take the pi55 whien you contribute your totally reasonable and objective opinions in future.

I had missed Dave's ramblings, they are getting worse though, probably close to his period.
Whilst I respect and admire your valiant attempts at engaging David in the cut and thrust of sporting banter, I fear that your attempts will be ultimately futile as he lacks social sensitivity to absorb your comments and the intellectual capacity to respond in a rational manner. In short, he is just a miserable old myopic tw@t

Your just jealous because you can't sign anyone and we can afford to let people go out on loan.
Desperation that is , being so much in debt and with such a massive wage bill for a failing squad .

Get who ever you can out the club to help TRY and keep TEAM RHODES your only decent asset at the club.

Wake up and smell the coffee you know you have to strip the club and rebuild in order to survive .
