DAVID Goodwillie has left Blackburn Rovers by mutual agreement.

The striker, whose last appearance for the club came on the final day of the 2012-13 season, had one year remaining on his contract.

Goodwillie was signed by then Rovers manager Steve Kean in August 2011 for a reported £2.8m from Dundee United.

But the Scotland international made just 10 starts for the club, plus an additional 24 appearances off the bench, scoring five goals.

During his three-year spell at Ewood Park he was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace and, last season, to Dundee United and then Blackpool.

A Rovers statement read: "Blackburn Rovers Football Club and David Goodwillie confirm the player's departure from the club by mutual agreement.

"The club thanks David for his work and dedication during his time at Ewood Park and wishes him all the best for the future."

Goodwillie was one of six players to be transfer listed by Rovers last month.

The others are Dickson Etuhu, Leon Best, DJ Campbell, Jordan Slew and Alex Marrow.

Oh dear....

Looks like someone at your club has finally realised what's heading your way and is hammering on that big red PANIC button!!

Having to pay off a player you signed for £2.8million and then paid £12,000 a week for 3 years for ZERO return. Disgraceful.

Transfer fee: £2,800,000
Wages: £1,872,000
Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £4,672,000

It's no wonder you're in financial meltdown! The maximum permitted loss for 2014/15 is £3million! LOL.


FFP is coming..... is that the theme tune to Jaws I can here?

Sorry Nick, I don't think that was the problem this time, Kean may have been responsible for over-hyping the lad but as one who wanted to give him a chance I have to admit Goodwillies failure to perform was his own doing. He failed to make an impact here, he was sent back by Palace, wasn't prolific on othe loans, frankly when he was struggling at Rovers he should have built a reputation and confidence on loan in League 1.
Pleased that he's moving on, it's best for him and for Rovers.

Don't forget the pay off for cancelling his contract final year. So you can add another £300K making a grand total of £5Million+.

Yeah I am sure he just walked away from the biggest payday he's ever likely to receive, I am sure his agent said "Don't worry Dave, we can replicate your Blackburn wage when we get you a new club in the SPL".

Don't be so naive.

Pretty sure some level of pay off will be in the agreement, Rovers need to get rid of the transfer listed players by the end of this month so that any pay offs are included in the 2013 -14 season for FFP.

If they do then they fall foul of FFP for last seasons figures and will be penalised accordingly, more importantly they start the 2014 - 15 season with a clean financial sheet, and the following season we should be fine.

If they don't then they are behind the 8 ball for the 2014 - 15 season, that's what Shaw and Bowyer mean by "it will take a couple of seasons to get us back on track". They are looking to the contracts running out.

Therefore the 5 remaining players on the transfer list have us by the financial short and curlies.

"Who said they paid him off? He left by mutual consent."


That's what it means you goon.

Goodwillie was owed a years salary. Would you walk away from a years salary?

Goodwillie was paid £12,000 a week. Would you walk away from £12,000 a week?

The final year of his contract was therefore worth £624,000.

Of course he has been paid off. The usual outcome is that the club via the players representative negotiate a settlement fee which in most cases adds up to approximately half of the remaining contract, in this case £312,000. So Goodwillie will have been offered this fee to leave before the end of his contract, effectively costing BRFC £312,000 as opposed to £624,000. Which clearly shows that the financial issues are now taking centre stage at Blackburn Rovers.

He could of course have refused, and took the club to court to claim the full final years salary that he is owed under the terms of his contract,however it seems like he wanted to get away as quickly as possible though, and who could blame him.

It also means that the signing of Brown on a reported £10,000 a week contract is actually costing £10,000 a week plus the remainder of Goodwillie's contract, so in effect you are paying £16,000 a week for a League One player.

It's all going tragically wrong down at Ewood Park I'm afraid, and looking at the figures, FFP is going to tear you apart.

The official matchday magazine of August 2011 trumpets on the front cover about Goodwillie being a "striker ready to take Prem by storm". Page 11 sees Steve Kean lauding the signing of Radosav Petrovic as a "major coup". Both were awful and the view is not at all coloured by the fact they were Steve Kean signings. And there were many more poor and expensive signings.
It is Owd Nick's hatred of all things Allardyce that was the jaundiced view.
Del Bosque and Hodgson OUT!

Oh dear, you don't understand the implications of FFP at all.

The transfer embargo is neither here nor there, it is simply a sanction put in place to ensure that action is taken. In your particular case the necessary action is to REDUCE YOUR LOSSES in line with the rules, not simply serve the transfer ban and then carry on as before!

Until your losses are reduced to within the limits the transfer ban will remain in place, and as such you will be forced to accept fee's below market value for your key players. Your losses for the last accounting period were £36.5million with a 136.1% wages to turnover ratio, a completely unsustainable and precarious position to be in.

It's not a case of selling players if you feel like it, you have to sell to reduce the wage bill. The transfer fee received will then go straight in Venky's pocket to balance the additional £8million deficit from the reduction in parachute payments.

Your club is now being forced to comply as you have broken the rules that other clubs have adjusted to over the last 2 seasons.

The savings you will have to make could be upwards of £25million given your horrific wage bill and the size of contracts that you must either honour or pay off. This is not a quick fix, and regardless of all the talk about new contracts and signing players you will not be able to spend a penny on transfer fee's or contract renewals without balancing this with major cutbacks by selling your key saleable asset, i.e. Jordan Rhodes.

You will realise this all soon enough.

That's what it means you goon.

Goodwillie was owed a years salary. Would you walk away from a years salary?

Goodwillie was paid £12,000 a week. Would you walk away from £12,000 a week?

The final year of his contract was therefore worth £624,000.

Of course he has been paid off. The usual outcome is that the club via the players representative negotiate a settlement fee which in most cases adds up to approximately half of the remaining contract, in this case £312,000. So Goodwillie will have been offered this fee to leave before the end of his contract, effectively costing BRFC £312,000 as opposed to £624,000. Which clearly shows that the financial issues are now taking centre stage at Blackburn Rovers.

He could of course have refused, and took the club to court to claim the full final years salary that he is owed under the terms of his contract,however it seems like he wanted to get away as quickly as possible though, and who could blame him.

It also means that the signing of Brown on a reported £10,000 a week contract is actually costing £10,000 a week plus the remainder of Goodwillie's contract, so in effect you are paying £16,000 a week for a League One player.

It's all going tragically wrong down at Ewood Park I'm afraid, and looking at the figures, FFP is going to tear you apart.
Seeing as you have been banging on about it for about 2 years please explain how a potential transfer embargo in January would "tear us apart" You don't seem to understand that nobody here cares that much. So we don't sign any players midway through the season so what. If we were that worried about it we wouldn't be letting players go.
Please keep you reply short and not a copy and paste job.
Oh dear, you don't understand the implications of FFP at all.

The transfer embargo is neither here nor there, it is simply a sanction put in place to ensure that action is taken. In your particular case the necessary action is to REDUCE YOUR LOSSES in line with the rules, not simply serve the transfer ban and then carry on as before!

Until your losses are reduced to within the limits the transfer ban will remain in place, and as such you will be forced to accept fee's below market value for your key players. Your losses for the last accounting period were £36.5million with a 136.1% wages to turnover ratio, a completely unsustainable and precarious position to be in.

It's not a case of selling players if you feel like it, you have to sell to reduce the wage bill. The transfer fee received will then go straight in Venky's pocket to balance the additional £8million deficit from the reduction in parachute payments.

Your club is now being forced to comply as you have broken the rules that other clubs have adjusted to over the last 2 seasons.

The savings you will have to make could be upwards of £25million given your horrific wage bill and the size of contracts that you must either honour or pay off.

Thanks for clearing that up.

So FFP isn't really a problem at all is it. I especially liked the bit where you got desperate and invented a new rule where we are forced to sell players for whatever is offered.

I think now maybe YOU understand it isn't really a problem

Having to pay off a player you signed for £2.8million and then paid £12,000 a week for 3 years for ZERO return. Disgraceful.

Transfer fee: £2,800,000
Wages: £1,872,000
Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £4,672,000

It's no wonder you're in financial meltdown! The maximum permitted loss for 2014/15 is £3million! LOL.

He got to work hard on his game and be a striker who's aim is to hit the ball into the post and support his team to WIN matches. Couple of games under Steve Kean, he show the spark and lost him during the Kean Era...:)) , Is good he goes back to his land and show his skills once again and be top of the striker list again.

All the Best.
