Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie on verge of signing on loan for Blackpool

BLACKBURN Rovers striker David Goodwillie is tomorrow expected to sign for Championship rivals Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.

Barry Ferguson has been tasked with strengthening the Seasiders’ squad ahead of being named the club’s new player-manager following Paul Ince’s sacking.

And former Rovers midfielder Ferguson is set to make fellow Scotsman Goodwillie one of his first additions.

Goodwillie only returned to Ewood Park on January 13 after spending six months on loan at his first club Dundee United.

The 24-year-old, who scored six goals in 22 matches for the Tannadice Park outfit, was named in Rovers’ squad for Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest.

But he did not make it off the bench and Gary Bowyer has agreed to let Goodwillie go back out on loan.

Goodwillie’s last appearance for Rovers was the 1-1 draw at Birmingham City on the final day of last season.

The Scotland international, a £2m arrival from Dundee United in August 2011, has made just 10 starts for the club and an additional 24 appearances off the bench, scoring five goals.

Blackpool visit Ewood Park on Saturday week.

But under the terms of the deal Goodwillie will be ineligible to face Rovers.

Only Best and maybe a few squad players such as olsson to go. Surely, we are now, or will shortly be in a position to bring in reinforcements.

Unfortunately, I feel we may lose Dann this window, but if we can bring in a suitable replacement, then buy a decent forward like Fryatt, and if the money stretches bring in a young creative midfielder (youth player) from one of the top six teams on loan. We could then consider ourselves a much stronger team, with a big reduction in what we have to pay out in wages. Win win, just a shame come the end of the season most of these players shipped out will probably end up coming back to us.

That's right, break up your defence just at the time when it's leaking worse than the Titanic.

From what Gary Bowyer has said since he returned from India then we can expect a couple of players to come in before the window closes. He mentioned that he would prefer experienced players rather than youngsters but either coiuld be possible depending on who is available.

Hi Frenchy,
I don't know about you but I feel GB is not to far from a very good squad but I don't think he knows what his best 11 is, we so the team and formation he picked against Leeds and you would have thought that's it this is the team I'm going with every week from now on but then we get more changes, changes that where not forced upon him through in jury's but just changes? Well let's see what happens against Derby, if it was me and I'm not the manager I would go with the team we had against Leeds, no Lowe at home but be more aggressive, what do u think?

Goodwillie was a disappointment as at the time he was well hyped we thought he would be an excellent prospect but we forgot it was Kean who had him watched and what did he know about football?
Goodwillie plays with his head down how hard is it for Colin Hendry and co to get it across to him that he must look up or he will miss opportunities maybe that is one of the reasons our under 21s get tonked 5-0 with 2 of the first team squad playing.

Yes, I can understand if Bowyer decides to bring in some experience. Bowyer's done an excellent job in getting our average age right down, but maybe we are now a little short on players who know what it takes to get promotion i.e. a mouthy git with a strong will to win.

Hi LP, I understand your points and I always believe that we should play with two up front (remember the TUF campaign)? even if one striker is playing just off or behind the main forward. So yes start with Rhodes and Gestade and when one of those tires or we need to chnage it then we can throw Dunny on to either help in midfield or support the main striker for the last half hour.

But for me the key is still midfield, as it has been for a couple of years or more now. Get that right and it helps all the team with defending and attacking.

We still dont seem to have the right blend in there, with Cairney, Lowe, Williamson and even with Corry Evans back it is still a little weak for me
.
Cairney is our attacking midfielder and what a good signing for us, no complaints about him, he is superb.
Lowe plays a more defensive role but his game seems to have stalled a bit from a couple of seasons ago and though he gets through a lot of hard work in midfield not everyone appreciates him for this.
Williamson is hard working and digs-in, but has no pace and for me he adds little to the team either defensively or going forward.
Evans was just showing some good form when he got injured and I think he will take Williamsons place when he is fit again.

But we are still missing a decent hard tackling player who can get up and down the pitch and add something to the team. (A Jermaine Jones type player)

Keep Rhodes. Keep Dann. Get one expereinced striker and one experienced midfielder in and we are in the play-offs for sure.

Lets start by stuffing the Rams who are the form team in the division.

Oh contraire, I would think if our defence was indeed leaking worse than the titanic, then now is precisely the time to break it up. Think before you speak.

Dann wants to go, he is on huge wages and we could recoup a few million with his transfer fee. Personally I like Dann, but I feel we could get someone just as good who would cost less than Dann's transfer fee (out) to buy and be on far less money. Any surplus money could go to paying our debt down.

I agree a good blend of youth and experience is essential. A couple of old heads might calm things down and help tighten up the leaky defence of late.
On a different article it's good to see Bowyer now has money available.

Only Best and maybe a few squad players such as olsson to go. Surely, we are now, or will shortly be in a position to bring in reinforcements.

Unfortunately, I feel we may lose Dann this window, but if we can bring in a suitable replacement, then buy a decent forward like Fryatt, and if the money stretches bring in a young creative midfielder (youth player) from one of the top six teams on loan. We could then consider ourselves a much stronger team, with a big reduction in what we have to pay out in wages. Win win, just a shame come the end of the season most of these players shipped out will probably end up coming back to us.
From what Gary Bowyer has said since he returned from India then we can expect a couple of players to come in before the window closes. He mentioned that he would prefer experienced players rather than youngsters but either coiuld be possible depending on who is available.
Yes, I can understand if Bowyer decides to bring in some experience. Bowyer's done an excellent job in getting our average age right down, but maybe we are now a little short on players who know what it takes to get promotion i.e. a mouthy git with a strong will to win.
I agree a good blend of youth and experience is essential. A couple of old heads might calm things down and help tighten up the leaky defence of late.
On a different article it's good to see Bowyer now has money available.
I honestly think that if we can make the right signings this window we will make the playoffs, but equally the wrong or no signings, and I feel we will just miss out. Exciting and scary times my friend.

I've identified a leader on the pitch as a priority, can't think of anyone atm who is in our price range and fits the bill, can you?

That's right, break up your defence just at the time when it's leaking worse than the Titanic.

Clueless.
Mr Seagull appeared this week with a couple of quite sensible posts but quickly reverted to type.
You're not mugging me off Mr Seagull.
There are no flies on you Harwood!

Are you the nom De plume police or something? :)
Yes :)

To me a Jermain Jones type player is what we need. A good box to box player with a good engine. Pity we couldn't have kept him. Just hope GB has some ideas or perhaps someone in mind.
It's good to see we have got ten out so a couple of decent / experienced players to replace that lot could make all the difference.

Should be a good move for him with a chance to get some Championship games under his belt and we should be able to monitor his progress with local match reports etc.

Good shout. Not sure if we could afford his wages though. I would also need to know that the player is still up for it before signing (as he's 32 now) - no more Danny Murphy's for me lol.
