JORDAN Rhodes has signed a new contract with Blackburn Rovers.

The prolific striker has put pen to paper on a deal that will tie him to the club until 2019.

The 24-year-old has scored 53 goals in 96 games for the Ewood Park outfit following his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012.

Rhodes was under contract until 2017.

Rhodes told the club's official website: "I'm delighted, I'm very happy.

"It is a fantastic football club and I'm very lucky to be here."

Nope. Nixon misfire as usual.

Norwich came in for him for around 8m which they turned down and questions were asked for Venkys to show commitment.

I believe Rhodes agent wanted to know where Jordan stood in Venkys plans with Brown and Varney brought in and speculations about FFP.

I guess actions speak louder than words.

Let's hope any release clause has been set high enough to ward off any suitors. Just the centre half to find now (assuming GB has finally had the brainwave of using Jason Lowe at right back) Just hoping we get off to a flier now. Not sure if Cardiff is the best game to start with, could be the perfect start or could be an anti climax. Genuine hope though for the season.

Great stuff. One of our most important players commits himself to our wonderful club and some people still aren't happy! Who cares what his salary is, he scores 25 goals a season. If he fires us to promotion he'll of repaid every penny that has been invested in him and then some, whilst increasing his own value at the same time. Two birds with one stone I say, guaranteed goals next year and shuts the dingles up.

Terrific news. The one thing I really wanted to happen was for the club to say he was not for sale and for JR himself to show he was committed. By this action we have both. Well done all parties. Bring the season on. We will soon be passing the Dingles as we get back to where we belong and they get back to where they belong!

And thinking about it, Rovers have probably dished out another 10 grand at least a week on top of his 40 K per week to keep him.

At a time when you need to trim the wage bill you're inflating it. From any other club I wouldn't understand it but where Blackburn Rovers are concerned nothing flabbers my ghast.

The rumours I heard for the last 7-10 days was that Rhodes had asked for £750,000 pay rise otherwise he wanted to leave.

Its great that he's going to stay - we obviously aint going to sign anyone better but there is always ups as well as downs in these kinds of deals -

1 - How do we afford an extra £750,000 per year when we're supposed to be reducing costs and trying to comply with FFP - we can hardly argue we shouldnt be put into a transfer embargo and that we are trying to comply when we have a player on £50,000 per week.

2 - How is this going to effect the other players ? - how are Gestede Cairney and Conway gonna feel when they earn less per year than Rhodes' pay rise. Especially if he had a baron spell and the other 3 are playing out of their skins?

Still, for us fans its great that we can now focus on BUYING defensive reinforcements and not having to fend off unwelcome bids for Rhodes from other clubs.

And you don't think FFP has been taken into consideration?
We've just offloaded some big earners like Ethuhu, Campbell and Goodwillie. It's also likely Best will be gone by hook or crook any time soon. Robbos the last of the high earners and based on his weight and form towards the end of last season, he could well be gone.
The truth is, Venkys may well just be trying to put a few of their monumental wrongs right. There's still a hell of a way to go but the fact we've resigned Rhodes and you've signed Marin Sordell says it all.

What a ridiculous statement. You need to concern yourself why your top scorer hasn't committed to you. Burnley will learn eventually what it takes to retain your top players. Might be too late by then though.

On the whole the fans of Blackburn Rovers have very little interest in how much we pay players, how much we are in debt, who leaves the club other than our star players etc. What they are interested in is, will the Venky's put right their wrongs of the last three years? Will we start the season with an improved squad from last season? Will GB and his staff bring the best out of the players? At the moment the answer seems to be yes! Saturday is the start of preseason friendlies, results don't matter but enthusiasm, fitness, an ability to make the most of the season and an overall determination to get back to the PL is all the fans ask.

Ps to WLUV, super claret and all his many guises, Rhodes is staying, stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

And thinking about it, Rovers have probably dished out another 10 grand at least a week on top of his 40 K per week to keep him.

At a time when you need to trim the wage bill you're inflating it. From any other club I wouldn't understand it but where Blackburn Rovers are concerned nothing flabbers my ghast.

Crack on. It pushes you just that bit closer to the edge of the financial abyss.
Well done boys, another quality bit of football club management.

It's no good having all that money if you can't invest it. No one wants to play for your club. Why is that? Premier League players want premier league money and facilities - Bonleh offer neither. You have Premier League status with Championship players and League 1 facilities and apparently no glory hunters which means home support of 11,000.
Venkys, whilst still not exactly popular, are actually worth billions and if they are serious about righting the monumental wrongs they are guilty of, then expect us to be there or there abouts next season.

Enjoy your season, I know we enjoyed our 18 seasons in there, lets see if you can match our achievements now Dyche has got all those £50 notes eh?!

Just so happens that the two on his wish list that he didn't get,were the two that were actually costing something.

LOL! Rumours are this new deal is worth over £52,000 a week!

That's a £13.75million contract!

One can only assume that FFP doesn't apply to Blackburn Rovers... are they exempt? Seriously though, who is making the financial decisions at your club? Do they really want you to go under, because that's exactly what this contract has ensured. Laughable stuff.

Another season in the Championship and the parachute payments run out so one can only assume this obscene and clause-riddled contract has more than the odd stipulation ensuring that Jordan can move on as and when he see's fit, and presumably with a pay-off from Blackburn Rovers for his "loyalty"... you really couldn't make it up! It's quite clear he's taking the coin on offer from the mugs at Rovers following interest from Norwich before a January switch to the PL when FFP comes calling.

Don't get me wrong, he's a great player at this level no doubt about it, but is he a £13.75million player when your club is currently over £60million in debt? The answer is quite categorically no. If he delivers promotion single handedly the gamble pays off, but.... what if he doesn't? What if you fall short or god forbid go down again...

Signed in 2012 for £8million.
£40,000 until 2014 (£4.16m).
£52,000 from 2014 until 2019 (£13.75m).

Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £25.91 million.

£26million spent on ONE player.

For once I truly fear for the future of Blackburn Rovers, I really do.

I'm all for you struggling but I don't want to see you go out of business all together, however this kind of ludicrous investment is only bringing the inevitable administration closer. You have been well and truly held to ransom, at least Dick Turpin wore a mask!

I can only THANK GOD that my club is not run by these cowboys and Indians.

What a complete and utter omni-shambles.

Seriously though, who is making the financial decisions at your club? Do they really want you to go under, because that's exactly what this contract has ensured. Laughable stuff. Another season in the Championship and the parachute payments run out so one can only assume this obscene and clause-riddled contract has more than the odd stipulation ensuring that Jordan can move on as and when he see's fit, and presumably with a pay-off from Blackburn Rovers for his "loyalty"... you really couldn't make it up! It's quite clear he's taking the coin on offer from the mugs at Rovers following interest from Norwich before a January switch to the PL when FFP comes calling. Don't get me wrong, he's a great player at this level no doubt about it, but is he a £13.75million player when your club is currently over £60million in debt? The answer is quite categorically no. If he delivers promotion single handedly the gamble pays off, but.... what if he doesn't? What if you fall short or god forbid go down again... Signed in 2012 for £8million. £40,000 until 2014 (£4.16m). £52,000 from 2014 until 2019 (£13.75m). Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £25.91 million. £26million spent on ONE player. For once I truly fear for the future of Blackburn Rovers, I really do. I'm all for you struggling but I don't want to see you go out of business all together, however this kind of ludicrous investment is only bringing the inevitable administration closer. You have been well and truly held to ransom, at least Dick Turpin wore a mask! I can only THANK GOD that my club is not run by these cowboys and Indians. What a complete and utter omni-shambles.

Nope. Nixon misfire as usual.

Norwich came in for him for around 8m which they turned down and questions were asked for Venkys to show commitment.

I believe Rhodes agent wanted to know where Jordan stood in Venkys plans with Brown and Varney brought in and speculations about FFP.

I guess actions speak louder than words.
The rumours I heard for the last 7-10 days was that Rhodes had asked for £750,000 pay rise otherwise he wanted to leave.

Its great that he's going to stay - we obviously aint going to sign anyone better but there is always ups as well as downs in these kinds of deals -

1 - How do we afford an extra £750,000 per year when we're supposed to be reducing costs and trying to comply with FFP - we can hardly argue we shouldnt be put into a transfer embargo and that we are trying to comply when we have a player on £50,000 per week.

2 - How is this going to effect the other players ? - how are Gestede Cairney and Conway gonna feel when they earn less per year than Rhodes' pay rise. Especially if he had a baron spell and the other 3 are playing out of their skins?

Still, for us fans its great that we can now focus on BUYING defensive reinforcements and not having to fend off unwelcome bids for Rhodes from other clubs.
We DON'T know that though JC.

There's only one place that rumour came from and it was Nixon himself. He's had a beef with us and loves stirring the pot.

Noticed he was unable to answer what the new contract signing was in terms of wages. Full of hot air as usual is nix.

Regardless, this shows Venkys intentions regarding commitment and only the most cynical like Dingle Dave can kid themselves its sinister intentions.

No-ones coming in for him at this price and he wouldn't have signed if he was all for leaving.

2019 is a hell of a commitment for a 20+ goal scorer per season and if anyone should come in for him in a year or two - they sure as hell will have to be prepared to pay full whack for him - which is only going to keep increasing as his goals tally does.

Roll on the season - Can't wait!

What can I say but this is indeed excellent news. Jordan is my favourite player and he knows it as I see him before and after each home game. I will definitely be telling him how well pleased I am (and for that matter, other Rovers fans) when I see him again next month.

Having mentioned the above, Jordan has continually emphasized how happy he is at Rovers and enjoys going for training each day, etc.

May you keep more goals coming during the new season, Jordan!

"Tamworth FC boss Dale Belford says the Lambs should know more by the end of the week about the future of striker Kaiyne Woolery.

The young striker is currently on trial at Premiership Burnley, having already spent time with the Clarets at the end of last season.

"Kaiyne's been training with Burnley during the past fortnight and we should know more by the end of the week," said Belford.

"There's been interest from West Brom, Swindon, Crewe and Gillingham over the last year.

"But, by all accounts, things have gone well so far up at Burnley. We will have to wait and see what happens.

"It would be fantastic for Kaiyne to get a Premiership move - it would also be nice for Tamworth FC.

"He's a smashing lad and hopefully something comes from it.

Let's assume that your latest appearance on Jackanory is somewhere near factual.You are overlooking one slight detail.
That is £26 million for a player Rovers own.
Another 2 years scoring like he has the last 2 two and Rhodes will be worth AT LEAST £12-14 million.
Should they get a MASSIVE fee for him after 2 years,they would also save 3 years wages off your bottom line,about £9 million according to you.That makes it at least £23 million.
Knock that off your bottom line and it's suddenly looking like Rovers may have done their sums after all

You really do make some rubbish up.

Now all we need is another striker for after we get promoted, a young striker with a good goal scoring record, maybe one who lives close by, one whose weekly wage is quite low, if he was out of contract at the end of the season that would make it even better. Know anyone who fits that description ? Taxi for Ings.

Dear me. Farcical story-telling once again from the desperate one.

Your club is under a transfer embargo in January. This means that whilst trimming your horrific costs based on last seasons staggering £36.5million LOSS, you are unable to strengthen your squad. Remember this season you also have the additional £8m deficit from the reduction in parachute payments to account for along with the £3.5m loss from contract pay-off's to Goodwillie, Etuhu and Campbell. Thats an extra £11.5m to find before the wage bill even comes into play.

Come January, should you as expected be outside of the top six then I'm afraid Rhodes will be off for better things sooner that you think. Your club have simply thrown a fortune at him on the back of interest from Norwich and he has literally named his price. This will enable you to fend off interest in the short term but sadly he'll be gone for the same £10m price that has been recently put on him BY YOUR CLUB. You will have to sell when placed under FFP sanctions, it is as simple as that.

Also, hate to have to break this to you but you don't get back the wages you pay a player. You would be paying Rhodes an astronomical £18million in wages alone over the course of this obscene contract. You've already paid out £4m on the transfer fee, with £4m still owed to Huddersfield town, in addition to a 20% sell-on clause, which according to your silly made-up figure of £14m would then mean you have to pay Huddersfield Town a further £1.2m bringing his total transfer fee to £9.2m.

So let's say he goes in January for £14m, it's more likely to be £10m but I'll humour you, in this case you will receive £14m and then have to pay out £5.2m straight away on the remaining transfer fee and sell-on clause, leaving you with just £8.8m, and considering your parachute payments have just been reduced by £8m I think we can safely say you're not going to do very well out of the deal.

I'll say this much about it.... In Venky's we Trust.

Nope. Nixon misfire as usual.

Norwich came in for him for around 8m which they turned down and questions were asked for Venkys to show commitment.

I believe Rhodes agent wanted to know where Jordan stood in Venkys plans with Brown and Varney brought in and speculations about FFP.

I guess actions speak louder than words.
The rumours I heard for the last 7-10 days was that Rhodes had asked for £750,000 pay rise otherwise he wanted to leave.

Its great that he's going to stay - we obviously aint going to sign anyone better but there is always ups as well as downs in these kinds of deals -

1 - How do we afford an extra £750,000 per year when we're supposed to be reducing costs and trying to comply with FFP - we can hardly argue we shouldnt be put into a transfer embargo and that we are trying to comply when we have a player on £50,000 per week.

2 - How is this going to effect the other players ? - how are Gestede Cairney and Conway gonna feel when they earn less per year than Rhodes' pay rise. Especially if he had a baron spell and the other 3 are playing out of their skins?

Still, for us fans its great that we can now focus on BUYING defensive reinforcements and not having to fend off unwelcome bids for Rhodes from other clubs.
Rumours, rumours, rumours, the simple fact is that the only people who know what is in every single clause in his contract are Rhodes, his agents and BRFC.

So unless they come clean, and why should they, it's nowt more than idle speculation, and to be honest we will never know, and who cares? Because we can't affect it.

Rovers are more than aware of the implications of FFP so I am pretty certain that will have been taken into account as well.

As for the other players? Well they were rescued from relative obscurity and given a chance to play for a forward looking, progressive club, and I am pretty sure that all the contracts will have a basic salary, performance, appearance and target based bonuses plus other add ons like sponsorship etc;

Those players will benefit from him being at the club.

He's 25, not at his peak yet and somehow we have committed him to the club for 5 more years despite the usual speculation and drivel, that basically means that if someone is serious about buying him the fee is going to be astronomical.

It is actually a serious commitment from both player and club, and a very serious investment.

We payed £8 million for him, it can be argued he has already payed that back in spades.

If he stays the whole 5 years we profit from the goals he will score, if he leaves we profit financially, it's a win, win situation.

Dear me. Farcical story-telling once again from the desperate one.

Your club is under a transfer embargo in January. This means that whilst trimming your horrific costs based on last seasons staggering £36.5million LOSS, you are unable to strengthen your squad. Remember this season you also have the additional £8m deficit from the reduction in parachute payments to account for along with the £3.5m loss from contract pay-off's to Goodwillie, Etuhu and Campbell. Thats an extra £11.5m to find before the wage bill even comes into play.

Come January, should you as expected be outside of the top six then I'm afraid Rhodes will be off for better things sooner that you think. Your club have simply thrown a fortune at him on the back of interest from Norwich and he has literally named his price. This will enable you to fend off interest in the short term but sadly he'll be gone for the same £10m price that has been recently put on him BY YOUR CLUB. You will have to sell when placed under FFP sanctions, it is as simple as that.

Also, hate to have to break this to you but you don't get back the wages you pay a player. You would be paying Rhodes an astronomical £18million in wages alone over the course of this obscene contract. You've already paid out £4m on the transfer fee, with £4m still owed to Huddersfield town, in addition to a 20% sell-on clause, which according to your silly made-up figure of £14m would then mean you have to pay Huddersfield Town a further £1.2m bringing his total transfer fee to £9.2m.

So let's say he goes in January for £14m, it's more likely to be £10m but I'll humour you, in this case you will receive £14m and then have to pay out £5.2m straight away on the remaining transfer fee and sell-on clause, leaving you with just £8.8m, and considering your parachute payments have just been reduced by £8m I think we can safely say you're not going to do very well out of the deal.

I'll say this much about it.... In Venky's we Trust.
That's £10 million now,not in another 2 years,or 50 goals time.
Let's be honest,you never even thought of him being Rovers' saleable asset,did you?
Should he ask for a transfer,Rovers WOULD save the £9 million as stated by you.
So,with my estimated transfer figure of £14 million + your estimated 3 years' wages of £9 million,that's £23 million OFF whatever figure you came up with.
That total set by you was £26 million,your total figure,not mine.
£3 million for 5 years of Rhodes.Sordell's looking expensive.

LOL learn your maths, and the basic principles of employment contract, you fool. £18million in wages alone! LOL

Let me spell it out as it's clearly confusing you....

You have to date paid £4m in staged transfer fee payments and £4.16m in wages to Jordan Rhodes. That is a total to date of £8.16m.
You still owe £4m plus 20% of any future profit made to Huddersfield Town.

Rhodes has now signed an improved contract after holding your Championship club to ransom. That contract will come with all manner of perks including a nice fat signing on fee as is the norm these days. I expect that between Rhodes and his agent you're looking at an additional £1m minimum simply for signing on the dotted line.

Should Rhodes be sold for £10m as is likely in January, you will receive only £5.6m of this given the remaining fee owed to Huddersfield Town plus the sell-on clause. Additionally by this time you will have paid him a further 6 months wages of £1.35m. Bringing your net figure to £4.25m. Minus the signing on fee/agents fee, say £1m, and you're looking at banking £3.25m. Putting you almost £5m down on the original deal to sign him 2012!

The remaining term of his contract hasn't yet been paid so how can you class it as incoming money you moron!

You couldn't make it up!

When this flimsy house of cards comes crashing down next season, as Venky's make their long awaited departure, as the administrators move in to deal with the shambolic mess behind the scenes, as further financial mismanagement comes to light, as players scramble for the exit, as Blackburn Rovers continues its slide ever downwards, I shall be here... as always, to remind you, and as much as it will pain me to say it...

Why does it keep going up?
YOU said what his wages were,an estimated £9 million for his last 3 years at YOUR rate.
If Rovers were to get £14 million for him after 2 years,after he had asked for a transfer,then they would recoup £23 million.
£23 million which you hadn't considered, which would come off whatever figure you're gonna come up with next.
It's only a scenario,although quite plausible.Sorry to shoot holes in your Armageddon theory.
It just shows the importance of securing your main asset on a long term contract.rather than have him walk out for nowt.

LOL! Rumours are this new deal is worth over £52,000 a week!

That's a £13.75million contract!

One can only assume that FFP doesn't apply to Blackburn Rovers... are they exempt? Seriously though, who is making the financial decisions at your club? Do they really want you to go under, because that's exactly what this contract has ensured. Laughable stuff.

Another season in the Championship and the parachute payments run out so one can only assume this obscene and clause-riddled contract has more than the odd stipulation ensuring that Jordan can move on as and when he see's fit, and presumably with a pay-off from Blackburn Rovers for his "loyalty"... you really couldn't make it up! It's quite clear he's taking the coin on offer from the mugs at Rovers following interest from Norwich before a January switch to the PL when FFP comes calling.

Don't get me wrong, he's a great player at this level no doubt about it, but is he a £13.75million player when your club is currently over £60million in debt? The answer is quite categorically no. If he delivers promotion single handedly the gamble pays off, but.... what if he doesn't? What if you fall short or god forbid go down again...

Signed in 2012 for £8million.
£40,000 until 2014 (£4.16m).
£52,000 from 2014 until 2019 (£13.75m).

Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £25.91 million.

£26million spent on ONE player.

For once I truly fear for the future of Blackburn Rovers, I really do.

I'm all for you struggling but I don't want to see you go out of business all together, however this kind of ludicrous investment is only bringing the inevitable administration closer. You have been well and truly held to ransom, at least Dick Turpin wore a mask!

I can only THANK GOD that my club is not run by these cowboys and Indians.

What a complete and utter omni-shambles.
And the flip side is?

I love the way almost everyone on this message board professes to know the truth. Very few if any actually do. I know I don't!

Apply some common sense at times and observations as supporters (or detractors) may be. BUT none of us REALLY know what's going on in the inside of either club.

Talent management is about retention as well as development. I don't know the stats but let's pre-suppose that the Rovers Board do know what they are doing (I suspect they are more competent now than they were a couple years ago)? Rhodes is a proven goal scorer up to this level. (Prolific in fact if you look at his record). What if the team progress? What revenue is derived per goal (£ per points/positition; TV money; advertising revenue etc.)

We don't know what the plan is. But at least there now seems to be one and some consistency from Venkys. Wouldn't it be ironic if they have learned from their lessons, turn it around and return Rovers to the PL for a period of time - leaving Burnley fans with nowhere else to turn other than their default position of loving to hate their old enemy. Fuelled in the past 23 years by nothing other than JEALOUSY.

LOL learn your maths, and the basic principles of employment contract, you fool. £18million in wages alone! LOL

Let me spell it out as it's clearly confusing you....

You have to date paid £4m in staged transfer fee payments and £4.16m in wages to Jordan Rhodes. That is a total to date of £8.16m.
You still owe £4m plus 20% of any future profit made to Huddersfield Town.

Rhodes has now signed an improved contract after holding your Championship club to ransom. That contract will come with all manner of perks including a nice fat signing on fee as is the norm these days. I expect that between Rhodes and his agent you're looking at an additional £1m minimum simply for signing on the dotted line.

Should Rhodes be sold for £10m as is likely in January, you will receive only £5.6m of this given the remaining fee owed to Huddersfield Town plus the sell-on clause. Additionally by this time you will have paid him a further 6 months wages of £1.35m. Bringing your net figure to £4.25m. Minus the signing on fee/agents fee, say £1m, and you're looking at banking £3.25m. Putting you almost £5m down on the original deal to sign him 2012!

The remaining term of his contract hasn't yet been paid so how can you class it as incoming money you moron!

You couldn't make it up!

When this flimsy house of cards comes crashing down next season, as Venky's make their long awaited departure, as the administrators move in to deal with the shambolic mess behind the scenes, as further financial mismanagement comes to light, as players scramble for the exit, as Blackburn Rovers continues its slide ever downwards, I shall be here... as always, to remind you, and as much as it will pain me to say it...

I.

so.

STAYING DOWN FOREVER.... LOVE CLARETS.x
Why does it keep going up?
YOU said what his wages were,an estimated £9 million for his last 3 years at YOUR rate.
If Rovers were to get £14 million for him after 2 years,after he had asked for a transfer,then they would recoup £23 million.
£23 million which you hadn't considered, which would come off whatever figure you're gonna come up with next.
It's only a scenario,although quite plausible.Sorry to shoot holes in your Armageddon theory.
It just shows the importance of securing your main asset on a long term contract.rather than have him walk out for nowt.
His Armageddon theory is just pure bull**** once again. It doesn't matter about his maths, that's Venkys business not ours. They're showing long term commitment and that's what matters.

That's a £13.75million contract!

One can only assume that FFP doesn't apply to Blackburn Rovers... are they exempt? Seriously though, who is making the financial decisions at your club? Do they really want you to go under, because that's exactly what this contract has ensured. Laughable stuff.

Another season in the Championship and the parachute payments run out so one can only assume this obscene and clause-riddled contract has more than the odd stipulation ensuring that Jordan can move on as and when he see's fit, and presumably with a pay-off from Blackburn Rovers for his "loyalty"... you really couldn't make it up! It's quite clear he's taking the coin on offer from the mugs at Rovers following interest from Norwich before a January switch to the PL when FFP comes calling.

Don't get me wrong, he's a great player at this level no doubt about it, but is he a £13.75million player when your club is currently over £60million in debt? The answer is quite categorically no. If he delivers promotion single handedly the gamble pays off, but.... what if he doesn't? What if you fall short or god forbid go down again...

Signed in 2012 for £8million.
£40,000 until 2014 (£4.16m).
£52,000 from 2014 until 2019 (£13.75m).

Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £25.91 million.

£26million spent on ONE player.

For once I truly fear for the future of Blackburn Rovers, I really do.

I'm all for you struggling but I don't want to see you go out of business all together, however this kind of ludicrous investment is only bringing the inevitable administration closer. You have been well and truly held to ransom, at least Dick Turpin wore a mask!

I can only THANK GOD that my club is not run by these cowboys and Indians.

What a complete and utter omni-shambles.
And the flip side is?

I love the way almost everyone on this message board professes to know the truth. Very few if any actually do. I know I don't!

Apply some common sense at times and observations as supporters (or detractors) may be. BUT none of us REALLY know what's going on in the inside of either club.

Talent management is about retention as well as development. I don't know the stats but let's pre-suppose that the Rovers Board do know what they are doing (I suspect they are more competent now than they were a couple years ago)? Rhodes is a proven goal scorer up to this level. (Prolific in fact if you look at his record). What if the team progress? What revenue is derived per goal (£ per points/positition; TV money; advertising revenue etc.)

We don't know what the plan is. But at least there now seems to be one and some consistency from Venkys. Wouldn't it be ironic if they have learned from their lessons, turn it around and return Rovers to the PL for a period of time - leaving Burnley fans with nowhere else to turn other than their default position of loving to hate their old enemy. Fuelled in the past 23 years by nothing other than JEALOUSY.

Dyche claimed FFP had his hands tied as his accounts manager Souper Clarence told him anything more than minimum wage would incur heavy penalties for the club who have already accepted relegation and started planning how to spend the Parachute payments.

What a complete and utter omni-shambles.[/p][/quote]Stick to the glue sniffing lad you talk utter garbage. But for the information to put your mind at rest you are far from getting near the valuations in the above. I would love to say more but I like my job and employers. batesempire

LOL learn your maths, and the basic principles of employment contract, you fool. £18million in wages alone! LOL

Let me spell it out as it's clearly confusing you....

You have to date paid £4m in staged transfer fee payments and £4.16m in wages to Jordan Rhodes. That is a total to date of £8.16m.
You still owe £4m plus 20% of any future profit made to Huddersfield Town.

Rhodes has now signed an improved contract after holding your Championship club to ransom. That contract will come with all manner of perks including a nice fat signing on fee as is the norm these days. I expect that between Rhodes and his agent you're looking at an additional £1m minimum simply for signing on the dotted line.

Should Rhodes be sold for £10m as is likely in January, you will receive only £5.6m of this given the remaining fee owed to Huddersfield Town plus the sell-on clause. Additionally by this time you will have paid him a further 6 months wages of £1.35m. Bringing your net figure to £4.25m. Minus the signing on fee/agents fee, say £1m, and you're looking at banking £3.25m. Putting you almost £5m down on the original deal to sign him 2012!

The remaining term of his contract hasn't yet been paid so how can you class it as incoming money you moron!

You couldn't make it up!

When this flimsy house of cards comes crashing down next season, as Venky's make their long awaited departure, as the administrators move in to deal with the shambolic mess behind the scenes, as further financial mismanagement comes to light, as players scramble for the exit, as Blackburn Rovers continues its slide ever downwards, I shall be here... as always, to remind you, and as much as it will pain me to say it...

I.
told.
you.
so.

STAYING DOWN FOREVER.... LOVE CLARETS.x
"You couldn't make it up!" - The thing is... you do!!

Every time you post anything about our financial figures you completely make up the numbers. Evidenced by the fact you thought Rhodes's new contract was worth £52k a week, when it's actually an extension to his existing deal.

Your attempt at trolling these boards is so cringeworthy. You're reduced to making predictions that never come true (wonder what squad number Rhodes will have at Norwich) and completely fabricating financial figures to suggest we're heading for future turmoil.

Fact is, we're not. This new deal for Rhodes proves is.

Fantastic news! As for those 'fans' saying Rhodes demanded more money because the club wouldn't sell him to Norwich, I'd recommend you lay off the booze for a while. Rhodes' contract negotiations have been ongoing since the end of the season, long before the 'paper talk' regarding Norwich surfaced. Also, how can Rovers refuse to sell a player to a club when they haven't even made an approach for him? Seriously, stop believing everything you read in the Daily Mirror...

Dear me, look how touchy the fatherless one are getting.

Rhodes is bleeding your club dry, no more no less.

The only reason he has signed on is for money. Why else would he turn down a move to the Premier League. Blackburn Rovers have simply told him that if he stays another season he can name his price.

£26million on a single player is an absolute disgrace and this one single action will be recalled in years to come when you are struggling to keep your heads above water in League One.

'tis just a matter of time.

As the Blackburn Rovers debt clock ticks over the £60million mark you have to wonder who is going to pay all that money back? Venky's you say? LOL! Why have they not done this before then?

The sad fact is that its all over for you.

1. No PL side has offered the Rovers any money for JR.
2 why should the Venky's pay off the debt now? They have no need to. Most businesses run on borrowings.

Because you are punished for those horrific losses and paying off the debt would reduce the losses by avoiding the astronomical interest payments on the money you owe. It will have to be paid off one day but Venky's will be long gone by that time.

And borrowings (debt) can offer huge tax advantages to £billion businesses like Venkys. But the more astute business brain would already know that.

Astronomical interest rates? Which planet are you on? Interest rates have never been so low. Now is the time to borrow.
