Venky's 'remain committed' to Rovers as they sanction £300,000 revamp of pitches

This Is Lancashire: Rovers groundsman Steve Patrick Rovers groundsman Steve Patrick

DIRECTOR Alan Myers insists owners Venky’s remain committed to getting Blackburn Rovers back into the Premier League – as they sanction a £300,000 revamp of the club’s playing and training pitches.

Myers and Rovers boss Gary Bowyer have just returned from India for end-of-season talks headed by Venky’s matriarch Anuradha Desai.

And Myers, who was appointed the club’s director of communications in February, said: “It was a positive meeting.

“The owners were pleased with the way last season went and the fact that the club and team stabilised.

“They remain fully committed to the club and it remains their aim to help the club get back to the Premier League as soon as possible.

“But they see that Gary is building a young team and it’s about patience.

“As far as discussions about the football side of things are concerned, that is for Gary to talk about and quite rightly so.”

Bowyer led Rovers to within two points of the Championship play-offs in his first full season.

He will attempt to spearhead a promotion charge next season while facing the twin challenges of reducing the club’s wage bill and Financial Fair Play.

When Bowyer’s squad return for pre-season training in July they will encounter refurbished surfaces at Ewood Park and their Brockhall training base.

Venky’s have given Rovers head groundsman Steve Patrick the go-ahead to reseed the pitch at Ewood, the five pitches at the senior training centre and two of the pitches at the academy.

As part of the £300,000 outlay Patrick has also been able to purchase new machinery and a ‘desperately needed’ sprinkler system at the academy costing £54,000.

Patrick, who has worked at Rovers for 26 years, said: “It’s an incredible amount of money.

“Last year I spent £650,000 on a 3G facility which is the best thing we’ve ever done as it gave the academy Category One status.

“It is used intensively right throughout the summer – there are kids on there every day and every night – and I am sure we will reap the rewards from it in the next five years.

“This year when I asked for £300,000, there was no hesitancy.

“I need to make sure when we do get back into the Premier League that we’ve got the facilities to hold our heads high as a Premier League club – and we have got that.”

Patrick, who was a season ticket holder in the Riverside Stand before joining Rovers in 1988, believes last season’s playing surface at Ewood was the best he has seen in 26 years and he hopes the 2014-15 vintage will be even better.

He added: “I know we had a good winter but I felt the pitch last season was, in my opinion, the best I’ve ever seen it in my time here.

“Getting this revamp will help us keep that standard.”

Unlikely on the transfer kitty due to possible FFP restrictions, not that that appears to be GB's way anyway.

Pretty sure he knows who he wants.

Getting the deadlegs off our books asap is key, not going to be easy but we can live in hope.

Will be interesting to read Steve Patrick's article in the LT tomorrow morning regarding how the money has and is being spent on the facilities.

Just a shame the quality of football played on it this season wasn't immaculate then maybe the Rovers wouldn't be in such a mess.

This will be without a doubt the best playing surface ever seen in League One.

Good to see us getting organised and prepared for the premiership this is what its all about, still a long way to go but where catching up.

Hopefully we can be prepared as some of the clubs who have gone up this year , by ensuring our manager star striker and right back all only have one year of their contracts left as we go up. Then we too can spend a fortune on signing what we all ready have.

Also quite funny when Rovers drew at the Turf and made it 36 years since they last beat us on their own cabbage patch.

yes i understand that we will have to get rid of players first but if we get rid of say DG, LB and DJ + a small amount that venkys will stump up we can add quality with 1 player coming in

if that makes sense

It's encouraging to see that Venkys are still sticking behind us. I'm not trying to brush over the past, but to be fair to them, they haven't made a bad decision now since the appointment of Michael Appleton and that's well over a year ago.

The circus seems to have ended - onwards and upwards!

Ok so it doesn't count towards FFP but that still doesn't mean they are actually paying out cash for it rather than loading the club with more debt?

From what I have read and I am no expert, all that has happened is Venkys sanction something but no actual cash comes from India to pay for anything they just load the club up with more and more debt, yes the Venkys group remain guarantors but that only kicks in if Rovers can't pay it.

Shebby Singh, although I admire him on all levels for what he brought to your club, I think he might continue to pull the strings in the background, but never think he's totally out of the picture while Venky's are paying him a reported £800k salary. He could return at anytime.

Administration IS looming, a look at your accounts will tell you that. Unless there is a complete restructuring and recovery of losses amounting to somewhere in the region of £25million, then I can safely say that administration will be heading your way in the next two seasons.

Burnley ARE bigger than Blackburn Rovers. Always have been always will be. You had a little blip due to outside investment during a time when we struggled but now the rightful order has been restored and both clubs are where they are on merit. Burnley are a Premier League club, Blackburn Rovers are a struggling mid-table Championship club.

Sean Dyche spent £400k to bring in Ashley Barnes this season. The words of Sean Dyche himself. We achieved promotion.

You have been proved wrong on all counts. A very poor effort from a very poor no-dad. What happened to all the real no-dad's, you used to get a bit of banter out of them a year or two ago, you wet f@rts spend more time crying about the nasty dingles upsetting you all the time. Pathetic.

My worry is are they actually paying out money for this or is it just more debt that is loaded onto the existing debt putting us in an even worse situation with FFP.
It will go under youth development and ground development all excempt under FFP, which is already under review a meeting was held on the 9th april by all championship clubs to revise the rules, main reason is that the rules were set before the new premiership deal were in place , and given the size of the parachute payments , clubs are arguing it gives an unfair advantage to the clubs coming down, they are seeking the same rules as league 1 and 2 , were owners can put unlimited cash in ( Has to be cash not shares)
Ok so it doesn't count towards FFP but that still doesn't mean they are actually paying out cash for it rather than loading the club with more debt?

From what I have read and I am no expert, all that has happened is Venkys sanction something but no actual cash comes from India to pay for anything they just load the club up with more and more debt, yes the Venkys group remain guarantors but that only kicks in if Rovers can't pay it.
That's seems to be the point of the FFP changes in league 1 and 2 , that owners must put actual cash in , the likely hood is this is where the championship will end up to. How can you have a Premiership with allowance of 45 million and league 1 and 2 with unlimited cash injections.

We talk about debt but who is the debt owed to theres the real issue , if it to the owners that's one thing , if its the bank the risks are far greater. The club was sold with a £24 million debt , but that was to the walkers. Not an expert but would be interested to know how the tax works on this one.

I.e if I sell the club for £24 million profit I should attract tax, if the club owes me £24 million I have supposedly lent it at a large interest rate do I pay tax on that when its paid back and what tax rate does the interest attract, , seems a way of maybe dodging tax to me.

Football generally has to many poor practices across the board to me, owners should have to provide proof of stability by injecting cash assests into the club, much like the banks do, instead of these complex internal debt stratergies.

Just for clarity is seems were very hung up on the June 2013 number of 34 million, this include over £11million in transfers , mainly Rhodes and best and the full payment of Nuno Gomes and Danny Murphys contracts. So I would suggest since then outgoings have come down dramatically.

Oh dear, trying to wriggle out of it, unsuccessfully, I might add. You know full well I'm referring to your predictions, as you made them, since Rovers were relegated to the Championship.

Blackburn Rovers were NOT relegated at the end of the 2012-13 season.
Jordan Rhodes was NOT sold in the January 2013 transfer window.
Shebby Singh did NOT become manager of Blackburn Rovers.
Administration did NOT happen at the end of the 2012-13, or 2013-14 seasons.
Jordan Rhodes was NOT sold in the 2013 summer transfer window.
Blackburn Rovers were NOT relegated at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Jordan Rhodes was NOT sold in the January 2014 transfer window.

Also...

Burnley FC are NOT a bigger club than Blackburn Rovers in any sense of the word, be it fan-base, stadium, facilities, trophies, etc.
Ashley Barnes was NOT the only player that Burnley FC fielded last season, and he did NOT cost £400k, despite what Dyche claims, as Brighton turned down an offer of £750k a week before he signed.

None of what you said about Rovers came true when you said it would. Fact. Therefore, it is you, the sad pathetic little troll, who has been proved wrong, again, on all counts. Also, how many more times will you need the definitions of 'banter' and 'trolling' explained to you before you realise that what you do is in no way the former, and the worst case most of us have seen of the latter?

Pathetic, Bozo.

Just a shame the quality of football played on it this season wasn't immaculate then maybe the Rovers wouldn't be in such a mess.

This will be without a doubt the best playing surface ever seen in League One.
Think you need to get a job you SCROUNGER.

Wow, your bitterness at losing that crusty urine-stained 34 year comfort blanket is really quite something isn't it. We beat you, you can't pretend it didn't happen Mungo. Were you there?

36 years and still counting sice you last beat the Rovers at Turf Moor!

I know it must really hurt - haha - but it is a fact. #
Look it up and weep claret clown.
I've seen some desperation in my time of laughing at you circus clowns, but this is one of the best. A no-dad who simply refuses to believe that we've beaten Blackburn Rovers. LOL! You sir are the epitome of a deluded no-dad, just pretend it never happened and people will forget about it. Sorry but we beat you on the way to promotion. The best season ever. Check the Premier League for 204/15 and weep some more, we are there, but where are you?

Blackburn fans, crying inside for the foreseeable future. You couldn't make it up!

Legendry comment. Pure unadulterated no-dad nonsense of the highest order. I will remind you of this one.
I'm sure you will. Now, in the meantime, let me remind you of some of your own funniest moments...

Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Shebby Singh is on the verge of becoming Rovers' new manager
Administration is looming
Rhodes will be sold
Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Burnley are bigger than Rovers
We only spent £400k to get promoted

Good work, Bozo...
Rovers WERE relegated.

Given the state of your finances, Rhodes WILL be sold, there is not other way to reduce your losses by £25million unfortunately.

Shebby Singh, although I admire him on all levels for what he brought to your club, I think he might continue to pull the strings in the background, but never think he's totally out of the picture while Venky's are paying him a reported £800k salary. He could return at anytime.

Administration IS looming, a look at your accounts will tell you that. Unless there is a complete restructuring and recovery of losses amounting to somewhere in the region of £25million, then I can safely say that administration will be heading your way in the next two seasons.

Burnley ARE bigger than Blackburn Rovers. Always have been always will be. You had a little blip due to outside investment during a time when we struggled but now the rightful order has been restored and both clubs are where they are on merit. Burnley are a Premier League club, Blackburn Rovers are a struggling mid-table Championship club.

Sean Dyche spent £400k to bring in Ashley Barnes this season. The words of Sean Dyche himself. We achieved promotion.

You have been proved wrong on all counts. A very poor effort from a very poor no-dad. What happened to all the real no-dad's, you used to get a bit of banter out of them a year or two ago, you wet f@rts spend more time crying about the nasty dingles upsetting you all the time. Pathetic.
Ashley seat warmer.£400,000 up front +appearance money+£400.00 if you get into the P.L+wages..
Gestede £300,000 13 goals
Cairney £600.000 6 goals
Conway £100,000 4 goals
Spurr free 4 goals

Barnes £800,000 + 4 goals
And you think you got a bargain.
Barnes = Premier League player with Burnley, cost just £400k, or to put it another way approximately three months wages for Dixon Etuhu!

Cairney - Rejected by PL club Hull City as being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Gestede - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Conway - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

The three players you mention ALL started the season as members of a PL club, ALL were shipped out rapidly as their respective managers realised they weren't up to much. They are now starring at Blackburn obviously because the rest of your squad is so **** awful.

Legendry comment. Pure unadulterated no-dad nonsense of the highest order. I will remind you of this one.
I'm sure you will. Now, in the meantime, let me remind you of some of your own funniest moments...

Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Shebby Singh is on the verge of becoming Rovers' new manager
Administration is looming
Rhodes will be sold
Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Burnley are bigger than Rovers
We only spent £400k to get promoted

Good work, Bozo...
Rovers WERE relegated.

Given the state of your finances, Rhodes WILL be sold, there is not other way to reduce your losses by £25million unfortunately.

Shebby Singh, although I admire him on all levels for what he brought to your club, I think he might continue to pull the strings in the background, but never think he's totally out of the picture while Venky's are paying him a reported £800k salary. He could return at anytime.

Administration IS looming, a look at your accounts will tell you that. Unless there is a complete restructuring and recovery of losses amounting to somewhere in the region of £25million, then I can safely say that administration will be heading your way in the next two seasons.

Burnley ARE bigger than Blackburn Rovers. Always have been always will be. You had a little blip due to outside investment during a time when we struggled but now the rightful order has been restored and both clubs are where they are on merit. Burnley are a Premier League club, Blackburn Rovers are a struggling mid-table Championship club.

Sean Dyche spent £400k to bring in Ashley Barnes this season. The words of Sean Dyche himself. We achieved promotion.

You have been proved wrong on all counts. A very poor effort from a very poor no-dad. What happened to all the real no-dad's, you used to get a bit of banter out of them a year or two ago, you wet f@rts spend more time crying about the nasty dingles upsetting you all the time. Pathetic.
Ashley seat warmer.£400,000 up front +appearance money+£400.00 if you get into the P.L+wages..
Gestede £300,000 13 goals
Cairney £600.000 6 goals
Conway £100,000 4 goals
Spurr free 4 goals

Barnes £800,000 + 4 goals
And you think you got a bargain.
Barnes = Premier League player with Burnley, cost just £400k, or to put it another way approximately three months wages for Dixon Etuhu!

Cairney - Rejected by PL club Hull City as being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Gestede - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Conway - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

The three players you mention ALL started the season as members of a PL club, ALL were shipped out rapidly as their respective managers realised they weren't up to much. They are now starring at Blackburn obviously because the rest of your squad is so **** awful.
Your £800k striker hasn't made a single Premier League appearance yet, therefore I wouldn't be too quick to gloat about other players not being deemed good enough for that division, particularly when you consider he could only muster 8 goals & two assists in 43 appearances in the lowly Second Division this season. Gestede (13 goals & 3 assists in 27 appearances), Cairney (5 goals & 6 assists in 37 appearances) and Conway (4 goals & 13 assists in 18 games) all out-performed him.

Oh, and technically speaking, we're not a mid-table club either. I know it doesn't matter much but it's still far from where you lot had been predicting/praying we'd end up these last two years.

So let me get this straight, apparently your argument consists of your three former PL players (all of whom are rejects from BIG clubs) are all better than our third choice striker? Nice work.

Lets start comparing Gestede with Ings or Vokes, Cairney with David Jones or Dean Marney, Conway with either Kightly Or Arfield and then we will see who are the better players - I actually feel sorry for Blackburn fans, your level of banter has fallen to new lows - just like your pathetic team.

if we had a good pitch last season quote "the best Steve Patrick has ever seen it" then why throw more money at it?.....why not give us season ticket holders who turn up at Ewood every season a financial break?.

as for the chicken pluckers from India, you can throw as much money as you like at the club but you will not win me over....for me you're just trying to fix something that wasn't broke until you got your grubby little hands on it.

Wow, your bitterness at losing that crusty urine-stained 34 year comfort blanket is really quite something isn't it. We beat you, you can't pretend it didn't happen Mungo. Were you there? Were you there on the 9th of March when we waved you off? Were you one of the angry, sobbing no-dads sulking off with your tail between your legs gesticulating wildly towards the away end as we laughed at you having turned you over ON YOUR OWN PATCH! Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley. Never mind, you might play us again one day. Until then keep looking up and dreaming of what if because Burnley are in the Premier League, you turnip.
36 years and still counting sice you last beat the Rovers at Turf Moor!

I know it must really hurt - haha - but it is a fact. #
Look it up and weep claret clown.
I've seen some desperation in my time of laughing at you circus clowns, but this is one of the best. A no-dad who simply refuses to believe that we've beaten Blackburn Rovers. LOL! You sir are the epitome of a deluded no-dad, just pretend it never happened and people will forget about it. Sorry but we beat you on the way to promotion. The best season ever. Check the Premier League for 204/15 and weep some more, we are there, but where are you?

Blackburn fans, crying inside for the foreseeable future. You couldn't make it up!
For crying out loud why dont you read the post before you comment on it and look a fool.

I know very well that you fluked a win over us at Ewood this season BUT I am afraid that it is a solid fact that you have not managed to beat the Rovers at TURF Moor for 36 long Years now.

You do remember the Turf? That is your home ground - though u never visited it of course - so that may explain your ignorance or deliberate avoidance of a small but obviously quite hurtful fact eh....

36 Years undefeated at the Turf Moor Turnip patch doesn`t really mean a lot to us - but the fact that it must hurt you lot so badly - based on the way u keep slagging me off for mentioning it - is really quite amusing!

UEFA DEFEATS LEGAL CHALLENGE TO FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES.


Read it and weep no-dads, the news that you've been dreading for months is finally here.....

"Uefa has defeated a legal challenge to its financial fair play rules, which have been upheld by the European Commission. The rules, which require clubs to move towards financially breaking even and have recently been enforced for the first time, were challenged last year by Daniel Striani, a players’ agent registered in Belgium."

"Striani, represented by a Belgian lawyer, Jean-Louis Dupont, argued that the regulations would restrict investment in clubs, lock in the power of big clubs by preventing others indulging in huge spending and dampen down players’ wage and transfer fee inflation."

"In a letter sent to Striani, copied to Uefa, the EC rejected the complaint, saying it does not intend to investigate it any further. It argued that the financial fair play rules apply to clubs, not to players’ agents, and therefore Striani has no legitimate interest in complaining about them."

"Dupont could not be reached for comment."

Is it always like this on here? It's mental!

Not really a fan of Venky's, obviously, but good to see the pitches are being taken care of. A ground in disrepair is one thing but an unplayable football pitch not only removes the fluidity from the game, it can also lead to serious injuries. Vince Grella must have travelled back to the 1960s each training session.

I can't see the owners selling any time soon, I'm not even sure there'd be a buyer at the moment, but having top class facilities can only add to the potential sell on value of the club, as well as help improve the youngsters in the community.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!

"The circus seems to have ended - onwards and upwards!"

LOL!

Legendry comment. Pure unadulterated no-dad nonsense of the highest order. I will remind you of this one.
I'm sure you will. Now, in the meantime, let me remind you of some of your own funniest moments...

Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Shebby Singh is on the verge of becoming Rovers' new manager
Administration is looming
Rhodes will be sold
Rovers will be relegated
Rhodes will be sold
Burnley are bigger than Rovers
We only spent £400k to get promoted

Good work, Bozo...
Rovers WERE relegated.

Given the state of your finances, Rhodes WILL be sold, there is not other way to reduce your losses by £25million unfortunately.

Shebby Singh, although I admire him on all levels for what he brought to your club, I think he might continue to pull the strings in the background, but never think he's totally out of the picture while Venky's are paying him a reported £800k salary. He could return at anytime.

Administration IS looming, a look at your accounts will tell you that. Unless there is a complete restructuring and recovery of losses amounting to somewhere in the region of £25million, then I can safely say that administration will be heading your way in the next two seasons.

Burnley ARE bigger than Blackburn Rovers. Always have been always will be. You had a little blip due to outside investment during a time when we struggled but now the rightful order has been restored and both clubs are where they are on merit. Burnley are a Premier League club, Blackburn Rovers are a struggling mid-table Championship club.

Sean Dyche spent £400k to bring in Ashley Barnes this season. The words of Sean Dyche himself. We achieved promotion.

You have been proved wrong on all counts. A very poor effort from a very poor no-dad. What happened to all the real no-dad's, you used to get a bit of banter out of them a year or two ago, you wet f@rts spend more time crying about the nasty dingles upsetting you all the time. Pathetic.
Ashley seat warmer.£400,000 up front +appearance money+£400.00 if you get into the P.L+wages..
Gestede £300,000 13 goals
Cairney £600.000 6 goals
Conway £100,000 4 goals
Spurr free 4 goals

Barnes £800,000 + 4 goals
And you think you got a bargain.
Barnes = Premier League player with Burnley, cost just £400k, or to put it another way approximately three months wages for Dixon Etuhu!

Cairney - Rejected by PL club Hull City as being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Gestede - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

Conway - Rejected by PL club Cardiff City for being far too rubbish - sold to mid table Second Division no-mark club called Blackburn

The three players you mention ALL started the season as members of a PL club, ALL were shipped out rapidly as their respective managers realised they weren't up to much. They are now starring at Blackburn obviously because the rest of your squad is so **** awful.
Your £800k striker hasn't made a single Premier League appearance yet, therefore I wouldn't be too quick to gloat about other players not being deemed good enough for that division, particularly when you consider he could only muster 8 goals & two assists in 43 appearances in the lowly Second Division this season. Gestede (13 goals & 3 assists in 27 appearances), Cairney (5 goals & 6 assists in 37 appearances) and Conway (4 goals & 13 assists in 18 games) all out-performed him.

Oh, and technically speaking, we're not a mid-table club either. I know it doesn't matter much but it's still far from where you lot had been predicting/praying we'd end up these last two years.
OUTPERFORMED HIM? ha ha ha ha ha ha - yeah, all those players you mentioned have had brilliant seasons in leading Blackburn to a nose-bleed inducing EIGHTH PLACE haven't they?

So let me get this straight, apparently your argument consists of your three former PL players (all of whom are rejects from BIG clubs) are all better than our third choice striker? Nice work.

Lets start comparing Gestede with Ings or Vokes, Cairney with David Jones or Dean Marney, Conway with either Kightly Or Arfield and then we will see who are the better players - I actually feel sorry for Blackburn fans, your level of banter has fallen to new lows - just like your pathetic team.
Has Ingsy signed yet?

Turning you morons over on your own patch after giving you a one goal head start with only 17 minutes left to play, on the way to promotion to the Premier League, and taking off you the very three points that would have let you into the play-off's is certainly something to brag about. What a season, and the icing on the cake was laughing at you lot as you sulked off with your tails between your legs, well and truly brought down to earth with a bump.

man city have not actually been fined 50 m , they have been hit with 60 million euros of which 40 million will be taken off as soon as they comply, the remaining is taken out of there next 3 years worth of winning in the champions league. ie, about £ 6 million a year , bet that's really going to hurt.

Championship clubs have already met to revise FFP based on the fact the rules were set before the latest premership tv dea and parachute payments offer a now massive advantage to teams going downl, meeting held in April on the football league website.

Part of me does not agree with FFP but.................
................. wot about the clubs that have kept within the rules of FFP? You cannot simple say it dont matter as the lawsuit against the FA would be massive! Trouble is, it should apply from top to bottom! Its the only fair way. Clubs come down from the prem and are allowed time to adjust. Sorry, that aint right as all they do is plough money in and go straight back up and thats wrong and not fair!

Again you are absolutely, totally, irrevocably wrong.

Man City have tentatively agreed a fine of just £16 million, a reduction to the playing squad for UEFA competitions only and a restriction on transfer spending to a miserly (for them) of around £49 million for the 2014 - 15 season only.

The sale of Toure to whoever has tapped him up will at least double the £49 million.

As far as Rovers are concerned I will wait to see what the FA (there isn't a . in between F and A by the way) has in store for them rather than rely on your inane ramblings.

BTW; there isn't a rule on the planet that doesn't have loopholes,that's one of the reasons City's fine has been reduced; if City had challenged the original figure,which they surely would have, FFP could have been torn apart at the first hurdle.

The precedence has been set.

I'm afraid I'm right once again, absolutely, totally, irrevocably correct; and you like so many others are simply repeating your wish list.

FYI the compliant was never actually filed by the clubs. See link:

Further, with regard to Manchester City, the reduced sanctions reached as a compromise STILL require Manchester City to fall in line with FFP. They have not been excluded in any way from the ruling.

"As had been expected, City were fined £48.8m (€60m), but £32.6m (€40m) will be suspended, provided the Premier League champions abide by a number of conditions.

This leaves City's fine at £16.2m of their Champions League revenue over the next two years, as well as having their Champions League squad size cut to 21 players from 25 next season.

Under the agreement with UEFA, they will only be allowed to spend a net figure of £48.8m (€60m) in the next transfer window, meaning Manuel Pellegrini can generate extra finances by selling players and the wage bill has been frozen so it remains at the same level as this season. This shouldn't be too much of a problem, with many players leaving the Etihad this summer and freeing up some room in the budget.

City's FFP restrictions for the next two seasons are more specific than for other clubs, too. Whereas other clubs are allowed to make losses of £24.4m over two years, City’s restrictions mean that they can lose only £16m this season and £8m next season.

A statement from UEFA said: ‘Manchester City agrees to pay a total amount of €60million which will be withheld from any revenues it earns from participating in UEFA competitions commencing in season 2013-14. Of this €60million an amount of €40million will be withheld conditionally and will be returned to Manchester City if the club fulfills the operational and financial measures agreed.’"


The issue therefore is not the fine, a £100million fine would still be peanuts to these owners, the issue is that regardless of the punishment Manchester City STILL has to restructure to meet the rules. The sanctions are reduced should they do so.

Toure clearly want's out, and I suspect he wont be the last. The vast contracts handed out in recent years will soon be reined in as clubs realise the extent of the punishments longer term.

There simply is no escape. ALL clubs will ultimately become self financing, that's the whole point, even if the short term cost is to the detriment of the club in question, the long term future of the club is ultimately secure. If FFP is spanking the big boys, then minnows such as Blackburn Rovers haven't got a chicken leg to stand on.

It's easier all round just to accept that you will be punished and you will have to reduce your losses by approx. £25million over the coming season. It's squeaky bum time.

Wow, your bitterness at losing that crusty urine-stained 34 year comfort blanket is really quite something isn't it. We beat you, you can't pretend it didn't happen Mungo. Were you there? Were you there on the 9th of March when we waved you off? Were you one of the angry, sobbing no-dads sulking off with your tail between your legs gesticulating wildly towards the away end as we laughed at you having turned you over ON YOUR OWN PATCH! Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley. Never mind, you might play us again one day. Until then keep looking up and dreaming of what if because Burnley are in the Premier League, you turnip.
36 years and still counting sice you last beat the Rovers at Turf Moor!

I know it must really hurt - haha - but it is a fact. #
Look it up and weep claret clown.
I've seen some desperation in my time of laughing at you circus clowns, but this is one of the best. A no-dad who simply refuses to believe that we've beaten Blackburn Rovers. LOL! You sir are the epitome of a deluded no-dad, just pretend it never happened and people will forget about it. Sorry but we beat you on the way to promotion. The best season ever. Check the Premier League for 204/15 and weep some more, we are there, but where are you?

Blackburn fans, crying inside for the foreseeable future. You couldn't make it up!
Blackburn fans, crying inside, do you really believe that ?
we are all waiting for your predictions for the coming season
like will danny ings still have a burnley shirt on in august
will sean dyche still be burnley manager at the beginning of the season
will Kieran Trippier be a Arsenal player sooner than we think

UEFA DEFEATS LEGAL CHALLENGE TO FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES.


Read it and weep no-dads, the news that you've been dreading for months is finally here.....

"Uefa has defeated a legal challenge to its financial fair play rules, which have been upheld by the European Commission. The rules, which require clubs to move towards financially breaking even and have recently been enforced for the first time, were challenged last year by Daniel Striani, a players’ agent registered in Belgium."

"Striani, represented by a Belgian lawyer, Jean-Louis Dupont, argued that the regulations would restrict investment in clubs, lock in the power of big clubs by preventing others indulging in huge spending and dampen down players’ wage and transfer fee inflation."

"In a letter sent to Striani, copied to Uefa, the EC rejected the complaint, saying it does not intend to investigate it any further. It argued that the financial fair play rules apply to clubs, not to players’ agents, and therefore Striani has no legitimate interest in complaining about them."

"Dupont could not be reached for comment."


Blackburn Rovers, FFP is here... bend over and prepare to be boarded!

So has Premier League Burnley, you'll be hearing that a lot.
Especially whilst they're playing at home and you're sat at home, glued to these pages.
Ha ha, and you're sat at home "glued" to your latest copy of incest weekly!

Maybe you should read the article first you moron.


"Proposed changes to financial fair play (FFP) rules for Championship clubs have been rejected"

"The legal threat, coupled with concern over the impact of the new £23m parachute payments for the three clubs relegated from the top flight, prompted league chiefs to review the regulations.

But all four proposals, three of them related to boosting the level of losses and owner investment permitted, failed to attract the 75% backing required for them to take effect."

Therefore the rules are as they were...

"Under the current system, clubs will be permitted to lose £6m next season, although £3m of that must be covered by owner investment."

"The first set of sanctions against Championship clubs will be announced in December based on accounts for the 2013/14 season."
