No deal on the Rovers table for ex-skipper Neill

This Is Lancashire: Lucas Neill Lucas Neill

BLACKBURN Rovers will not be re-signing Lucas Neill after boss Gary Bowyer revealed the Australian had left the club.

Neill had training with Rovers as he attempted to regain his place in the Australia squad ahead of the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

The 35-year-old played 90 minutes for Rovers’ U21 side in a 2-2 draw with Tottenham earlier this month and Bowyer hadn’t ruled out a return for the defender who spent six years at Blackburn between 2001 and 2007.

But the Rovers boss will not be taking up the option of signing Neill, although he remains on the lookout for defensive cover.

“Lucas Neill was training with us and he played in a reserve game and now he is not training with us,” said Bowyer.

“If there was something could have come of it we might have done something but at the same time we were aware of the fact that if someone else comes in for him or if wants to try something else to get in the World Cup squad then that would be his goal.

“We were helping Lucas out with training but the World Cup is his goal and he has got an opportunity to play in that and everyone would want to play in that.

“Different people are interested in him and that is where he is at the moment.”

Neill has not played a competitive game since leaving Japanese club Omiya Ardija in November and Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou is not expected to select him in Australia’s squad for a friendly with Ecuador next month.

Bowyer is still attempting to strengthen his squad and admits central defence is the one area he is looking at.

Rovers have only Matt Kilgallon and Grant Hanley as specialist centre backs following the January sale of Scott Dann to Crystal Palace.

But Bowyer admitted it was at tough task to bring someone in when they will not be guaranteed first team football.

He added: “You try trying to bring in a centre half in to sit on our bench. We have got to be wary of that.

“Why is somebody going to leave a club where he is playing n their reserves to come and sit on your bench? It is a difficult one but it is something that everyone has to deal with.

“We have not got mass cover there but we have got people like Jason Lowe and Tommy Spurr that can fill in there short term.”

quote 'if there was something could have come of it we might have done something' - mumbo jumbo from leader Bowyer but never the less he got the decision right in the end - let Neill fill his back pocket with someone else's cash - god knows we done enough of that with others at Ewood.!!

Personally, I would hang-fire with this defensive cover, because if we lose to Reading the play-offs are all but over, and thus what would be the point. I'm guessing that this is what Bowyer is thinking, and maybe Neill didn't want to hang around and wait.

If we were to lose this game I would concentrate on making cost savings to reduce our debts. I would even consider sending even more squad players out on loan. The more we can save the better.

If we were to win this game mind, I would hope we would make all the necessary loan signings to give us a real chance of reaching the playoffs. Squeaky bum time on Saturday.

forget squeaky bum time - play offs are long gone - and yes we have loads of bench warmers to see off elsewhere including some recent signings so agree with you there!!!

Give Ryan Edwards a go on the bench as cover, he's got a few games under his belt out on loan. I would prefer a inexperienced specialist centre half to play than a makeshift defender(Lowe).

yawn...stop being so negative!
If you look at the division as a whole, we are probably the ones in the best position to sustain a challenge from outside the top ten. New players in January, a big club, increased stability by the week, one of the best goalscorers in Rhodes, Robinson back, King hopefully back soon...
trying to be sensible and putting forward the FFP point is actually wrong - in terms of FFP, we still have Robbo, Rhodes at the club and playing well, they will have to go in the Summer, so even if we lose at Reading (these things happen!), we need to go for it this season!
PS dont worry, every team loses a few games, the important thing is that we stay in touch, and at some stage in the next two months we find a way to basically win four on the trot, which will get us into the play offs.
(its not losing at Reading that costs you btw, its such as the draw at Barnsley and at home to Sheff Wed!)

You say the playoffs are long gone, but if you look closely, we are 7 points behind Reading with a game in hand, so a win against Reading and then the game in hand, it then puts us 1 point out of the playoffs.... So hardly long gone really

unrealisticrover,


- Rhodes has scored zero goals in 8 games.
- You are no longer a big club.
- You are currently in 10th place, so how can you "sustain a challenge from outside the top ten"? Are you accepting defeat against Reading before even playing?
- The teams that were recently well below you are now only 1 or 2 points behind and in some cases have overtaken you, see Wigan.
- Robinson: the best of a bad bunch, but definitely declining.
- King: Premier League pace, Ryman league skills.
- Define "increased stability by the week"? You're losing £3million a month.
- If you lose another game (which would be your 10th loss of the season) then you would have to concede that not only are the play-off's unlikely but also a top half finish is unlikely, given you have yet to play Leicester, Burnley, QPR, Brighton, Wigan, Ipswich, who are all better teams and above you.
- Surely it is losing at the likes of Reading that costs you because if you lose at Reading they are 3 points closer to the play-off's and you are 3 points further away from the play-off's.
- When was the last time you won four on the trot?

Just a thought.

Hello captain Bubble Pop,
Lets see how you go on aginst teams better than Bournemouth, who by rights should have had all three points, before you start spouting off.
I see you have nine players refusing to sign new deals, all running there contracts out with the hope of better pay elsewhere, Ings being one of them.
If you get sucked into the playoffs, which is looking increasingly more likely, they will all jump at season end and Bumley will get no maney for any of them. MELTDOWN

This year we might even win more games than we lose, so it can't be that bad.

"Lets see how you go on against teams better than Bournemouth"

Derby 0-3 Burnley
Leeds 1-2 Burnley
Burnley 2-1 Reading
Ipswich 0-1 Burnley
Burnley 2-0 QPR
Leicester 1-1 Burnley
QPR 3 - 3 Burnley

We did pretty good, don't you think? Burnley have lost only 3 games in 31. How many games have Blackburn Rovers lost this season?

And oh no the play-off's are out of reach for yet another season, boo hoo. What a shame that next season you clowns will be dominated by the financial MELTDOWN that is about to engulf your slap-stick tin-pot football club. It was all or nothing and you have FAILED for a second successive season!

You have TEN players refusing to commit to your mid-table laughingstock of club you absolute nobjockey.

Perhaps Rhodes might get a shot in at the Premier League as an impact sub for us next season? Given how he no longer wants to play for Blackburn I think a £3 or 4million offer should do it over the summer. Think about it.

You morons have been hoping and praying that we drop points and slip out of the top group of teams all season. We have been in the top 3 for FIVE MONTHS, which means you have been crying inside and wetting the bed for FIVE MONTHS.

17 ENORMOUS points, you degenerate festering bellwipe.

Correct on every level as you well know.

You'll be saying you'd rather not swap places with us next. You couldn't make up the nonsense that comes from the no-dad camp. It's delusion of the highest order.

You've just pointed out that you'd be nervous of being 2nd in the league? I bet you would because YOU NEVER BEEN ANYWHERE NEAR SECOND!

Do you prefer being 10th? We've proven that we can match any team in this division time and time again. We've been in the top 3 for 5 months. We are widely regarded as the underdog's and we are playing the best football outside the top teams in the Premier League. How jealous are you?

Your football club is on the slide, you were 8th not that long ago a couple of points off the play-off's, defeat at Reading and you're 10 points off and could be a low as 13th in the table. What a complete, unmitigated DISASTER of a season, and yet you still back bumbling Bowyer the under 12's coach like he's Jose Mourinho. Laughable.

I find your sort highly amusing, please do keep it up.

trying to be sensible and putting forward the FFP point is actually wrong - in terms of FFP, we still have Robbo, Rhodes at the club and playing well, they will have to go in the Summer, so even if we lose at Reading (these things happen!), we need to go for it this season!

unrealisticrover,


- Rhodes has scored zero goals in 8 games.
- You are no longer a big club.
- You are currently in 10th place, so how can you "sustain a challenge from outside the top ten"? Are you accepting defeat against Reading before even playing?
- The teams that were recently well below you are now only 1 or 2 points behind and in some cases have overtaken you, see Wigan.
- Robinson: the best of a bad bunch, but definitely declining.
- King: Premier League pace, Ryman league skills.
- Define "increased stability by the week"? You're losing £3million a month.
- If you lose another game (which would be your 10th loss of the season) then you would have to concede that not only are the play-off's unlikely but also a top half finish is unlikely, given you have yet to play Leicester, Burnley, QPR, Brighton, Wigan, Ipswich, who are all better teams and above you.
- Surely it is losing at the likes of Reading that costs you because if you lose at Reading they are 3 points closer to the play-off's and you are 3 points further away from the play-off's.
- When was the last time you won four on the trot?

Just a thought.

You have TEN players refusing to commit to your mid-table laughingstock of club you absolute nobjockey.

Perhaps Rhodes might get a shot in at the Premier League as an impact sub for us next season? Given how he no longer wants to play for Blackburn I think a £3 or 4million offer should do it over the summer. Think about it.

You morons have been hoping and praying that we drop points and slip out of the top group of teams all season. We have been in the top 3 for FIVE MONTHS, which means you have been crying inside and wetting the bed for FIVE MONTHS.

17 ENORMOUS points, you degenerate festering bellwipe.
You have said before you wouldn't have any of the Rovers players in your squad, yet here you want Rhodes? Silly Dingle
Can you not read? As an impact sub I'm sure he'd score one or two given that he'd be playing in a better team. Silly no-dad.
Impact sub - that would be someone in the squad would it not?
Maybe you need to learn to read...

If you look at the division as a whole, we are probably the ones in the best position to sustain a challenge from outside the top ten. New players in January, a big club, increased stability by the week, one of the best goalscorers in Rhodes, Robinson back, King hopefully back soon... trying to be sensible and putting forward the FFP point is actually wrong - in terms of FFP, we still have Robbo, Rhodes at the club and playing well, they will have to go in the Summer, so even if we lose at Reading (these things happen!), we need to go for it this season! PS dont worry, every team loses a few games, the important thing is that we stay in touch, and at some stage in the next two months we find a way to basically win four on the trot, which will get us into the play offs. (its not losing at Reading that costs you btw, its such as the draw at Barnsley and at home to Sheff Wed!)[/p][/quote]unrealisticrover, - Rhodes has scored zero goals in 8 games. - You are no longer a big club. - You are currently in 10th place, so how can you "sustain a challenge from outside the top ten"? Are you accepting defeat against Reading before even playing? - The teams that were recently well below you are now only 1 or 2 points behind and in some cases have overtaken you, see Wigan. - Robinson: the best of a bad bunch, but definitely declining. - King: Premier League pace, Ryman league skills. - Define "increased stability by the week"? You're losing £3million a month. - If you lose another game (which would be your 10th loss of the season) then you would have to concede that not only are the play-off's unlikely but also a top half finish is unlikely, given you have yet to play Leicester, Burnley, QPR, Brighton, Wigan, Ipswich, who are all better teams and above you. - Surely it is losing at the likes of Reading that costs you because if you lose at Reading they are 3 points closer to the play-off's and you are 3 points further away from the play-off's. - When was the last time you won four on the trot? Just a thought.[/p][/quote]Hello captain Bubble Pop, Lets see how you go on aginst teams better than Bournemouth, who by rights should have had all three points, before you start spouting off. I see you have nine players refusing to sign new deals, all running there contracts out with the hope of better pay elsewhere, Ings being one of them. If you get sucked into the playoffs, which is looking increasingly more likely, they will all jump at season end and Bumley will get no maney for any of them. MELTDOWN[/p][/quote]"Lets see how you go on against teams better than Bournemouth" Derby 0-3 Burnley Leeds 1-2 Burnley Burnley 2-1 Reading Ipswich 0-1 Burnley Burnley 2-0 QPR Leicester 1-1 Burnley QPR 3 - 3 Burnley We did pretty good, don't you think?

we should look to start blooding a young players now as the play offs are a pipe dream we need to find a striker who can score for fun for next season.We have been let down this season by poor team selection and none ambitious play to keep clean sheets rather than go for goals.I feel sorry for Rhodes he seems to have lost his confidence playing these negative formations but I suppose GB will retain his job whilst we aren't losing every game.

Correct on every level as you well know.

You'll be saying you'd rather not swap places with us next. You couldn't make up the nonsense that comes from the no-dad camp. It's delusion of the highest order.

You've just pointed out that you'd be nervous of being 2nd in the league? I bet you would because YOU NEVER BEEN ANYWHERE NEAR SECOND!

Do you prefer being 10th? We've proven that we can match any team in this division time and time again. We've been in the top 3 for 5 months. We are widely regarded as the underdog's and we are playing the best football outside the top teams in the Premier League. How jealous are you?

Your football club is on the slide, you were 8th not that long ago a couple of points off the play-off's, defeat at Reading and you're 10 points off and could be a low as 13th in the table. What a complete, unmitigated DISASTER of a season, and yet you still back bumbling Bowyer the under 12's coach like he's Jose Mourinho. Laughable.

I find your sort highly amusing, please do keep it up.
Second in the championship or winners (which would be first Mr Tardy) of the Premiership....

second in the Championship and drawn 4 of the last 6....nervous times indeed.
Still, at least you can duck out of the spotlight and just stop coming on here when it goes wrong, Look Up, like the desperate dingle you are...
you remind me of one of those boxers, all brave in the pre-fight, but they know deep down, theyre on to a loser...
