REIGNING player of the year Tom Cairney believes Blackburn Rovers have already done their most important business of the summer – tying talisman Jordan Rhodes down to a new contract.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Gary Bowyer has made three signings to his squad since the end of last season with the Rovers boss intent on adding at least one more before the transfer window closes on September 1.

But star midfielder Cairney reckons getting the prolific Rhodes to commit his long-term future will be paramount to the club’s hopes of winning promotion.

The 24-year-old striker, who has scored 53 goals in 96 appearances since his £8m club record move in August 2012, last week signed a new contract extension that will tie him to Rovers until 2019.

And Cairney, who is set to play a more central midfield role this season, cannot wait to link up with Rhodes again.

He said: “I think it’s good for the team and for the club that he’s put pen to paper.

“He’s scored 50-odd goals in two seasons and when you’ve got a talisman like that you want to keep him.

“I think I speak on behalf of the boys when I say that we are all very happy he has signed.

“The hardest thing to do in football is score goals and he does it every season for us.

“My first thought is always forward and his first thought is to always look to get in behind a defence or get a goalscoring opportunity.

“So hopefully I will put him through a few times this season.”

Rhodes putting pen to paper was swiftly followed by out-of-contract duo David Dunn and Markus Olsson agreeing new one-year deals.

Cairney has taken over as Rovers’ chief creative force from fans’ favourite Dunn.

But he still believes the 34-year-old has a big role to play.

Cairney, who pipped Rhodes to last season’s player of the year award after an outstanding debut campaign at Ewood Park, said: “On and off the field his experience is second to none.

“Everyone knows about his ability and I’m sure he’ll bring something to the table again this season.

“It’s good that we have kept the same faces from last season that helped turn the club around and bring the feel good factor back.”

One player who will not be returning to Rovers is transfer-listed midfielder Alex Marrow.

The 24-year-old, who rejoined the club last summer, yesterday negotiated his release from the final two years of his contract to sign a one-year deal with Carlisle United.

Marrow had been on trial at the League Two outfit and his departure means of the six players Rovers listed in May only two – Leon Best and Jordan Slew – remain after David Goodwillie, Dickson Etuhu and DJ Campbell were paid off.

Ewood chiefs remain hopeful of finding new clubs for strikers Best and Slew.

A 27-man Rovers squad – including Ruben Rochina – is currently in Portugal undergoing warm-weather training.

Burnley fan in peace.

I can understand the need to tie down your top player and main goalscorer, however did he not have a few years left on his present deal which was already an astronomical wage for the championship? It is fair to say he is on premiership wages especially if it is true his salary has increased under this new deal.
Instead of offering this new deal could that money not have gone on another incoming player to help strengthen the defence for example?
On those wages I would be expecting him to be the leading championship scorer next season and to be getting my club promoted. Sure Fulham will think the same of McCormack as well.
For me it is crazy money in the 2nd tier of football and not sustainable.

See what you mean Mc but players like Rhodes don't come cheap especially if you are determined to keep them.
Not being funny but if your board offered Ings proper Premiership renumeration there wouldn't be this doubt about him staying or going. As I say quality doesn't come cheap. Burnley need to show Ings how much they want him or set their sights lower.

No facts and all based on assumption - so why post?

Premier League wages I'm led to believe as Bumley are 'Premier League' are £8-15k/week. Maybe as commented abov that's why Bumley are likely to lose Ings.

At the end of the day, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. And that's what you have at TurdMorgue.

Yeah, I am sure that Matt Taylor for example who has joined after spending the last 12 years as a PL player has settled for wages of between £8 and £15k a week.

It makes a change getting a sensible comment instead of a stupid or rude comment from a Burnley fan. Regarding your point, I suspect if Rovers do not go up this season then Rhodes will be leaving and the fact he will have 4 years left on his contract means Rovers will be able to get a good price for him. I think Rovers have a very good chance this season so it's probably worth the gamble.

understand what you are saying and I suspect you are directionally correct and he is on big money for the championship - that said IF norwich were sniffing around then he would have been on big money there too (admittedly with prem parachute monies available).

I suspect (but don't know) that a deal has been brokered between club and player/agent to extend the contract (probably at increased monies) with a view to being the catalyst for all out promotion for rovers with the understanding that he can go if we (and he) don't get that. therefore, with an improved length of contract this should mean improved transfer fee - which will go some way to offsetting any percentage fee which would be payable to huddersfield.

if ifs and buts were candy and nuts - we would all have a merry christmas - but my guess is that it is not a million miles from the truth.

Yes, you make some fair points but for us Rovers fans its now or never for promotion (or at least a stab at the playoffs) and without Jordon this squad is massively lacking in quality. (6 or 7 good players, rest average or complete rubbish) so without a 20+ a season goalscorer we would be just mid table mediocrity - with him we have a reasonable chance of a top 6 finish.

I heard he had wanted a £15,000 per week pay rise taking his wage to £50,000 p week which, yes, is a staggering amount for a 2nd tier player but the contract extension prob means that if we failed to go up and have to sell him in summer (which would seem likely) then we could easily recoup the extra £750,000 we have paid him in wages.

Still, I don't think it will impress the rest of the football league in the December meeting when we try to convince them that we're trying to cut our costs and comply with FFP and that we need more time when we have a player earning £50,000 per week.

However, I actually agree with this Venky strategy for once - keep him and go for broke, its this season or nothing for a long long time for us as our finances are in such a mess, completely unsustainable and FFP WILL force us to properly address this.

Some good points JC but "only heard" Rhodes wanted £15, 000 a week more is only speculation and I don't believe even Venkys would pay that.
As you say though it would easily be recouped should he move.

Still, I don't think it will impress the rest of the football league in the December meeting when we try to convince them that we're trying to cut our costs and comply with FFP and that we need more time when we have a player earning £50,000 per week. However, I actually agree with this Venky strategy for once - keep him and go for broke, its this season or nothing for a long long time for us as our finances are in such a mess, completely unsustainable and FFP WILL force us to properly address this.[/p][/quote]Some good points JC but "only heard" Rhodes wanted £15, 000 a week more is only speculation and I don't believe even Venkys would pay that. As you say though it would easily be recouped should he move. Harwoodstblue

£53,000 a week is the price you are having to pay ONE PLAYER to stay at Deadwood in the second division!

Rhodes will be sold as soon as someone at BRFC realises just how much of a mess your club is in. Bring on FFP...

LOL!

Staying down forever... love Clarets.x
You really are a real bird brain,apart from being clueless you still live in a fantasy world. Rhodes has NOT had a weekly wage increase,he is on £30k a week,what has been increased is his bonuses for assists,goals,appear
ances,league position and international appearances,with a real wage increase if Rovers get promoted.

I don't know where all the information comes from regarding Rhodes financial package. It is only going to be known to the player, his agent and those at Rovers who were involved in the negotiations. Anything else is just a guess and to base opinions on guesswork is futile.

Pathetic backtracking once again from the no-dad's.

I'm reliably informed by a Blackburn Rovers fan no less that Jordan Rhodes basic salary is now an obscene £53,000 a week, with multiple clauses stipulating he has the right to speak to any premier league club from January. This has all come about following an £8m offer from Norwich.

Rhodes and his agent have simply held your club to ransom. He has no interest in remaining with Blackburn Rovers but as the club have priced him at £10m he can demand a whopping pay increase until the January panic starts and Norwich, West Ham, Everton or any number of struggling premier league clubs come in with an acceptable offer.

The reality for Venkys is that Blackburn Rovers have no chance of promotion but a good run of goals from Rhodes prior to his inevitable departure in January could see you to a safe position ahead of the FFP molesting. I think from then on you are looking at a fight to stay in the Championship and following the final parachute payment a complete clear out and reduction in both squad size and wage bill to survive the threat of administration. Should Venkys decide to walk away however then you are in a whole heap of trouble.

The future for you lot is decidedly grim to say the least.

Cheers lads, nice to have some sensible responses and previously I have asked the question of whether Rovers should go for it this summer or try and wait and see what happens. Personally I think you have little choice and this season is extremely important for you.
With regards to Ings I actually share similar thoughts. The Burnley board find themselves in an unusual situation with him whereby they actually hold the aces. Simple facts are these:
He needs to play prem football to enhance his career and he will be in the shop window at Burnley for certain as he will play each week.
At the end of his contract if he moves on we will still be entitled to compensation which could be circa 5m.
The quandary for the Burnley board is do they try and cash in on their best asset at this stage which would gain them an extra say 3m+ or take the gamble that he is probably the best chance of us staying up.
Also take into account that it is looking likely J Rod will be sold by Soton at some stage and we are likely to make about 3m from that deal.
Complete non-brainer for me. I would offer improved terms with a release clause if Burnley are relegated (Waiting the responses of what do you mean if lol) or let him see out his contract and then take the compensation. Not much of a gamble from where I am sitting.
My instinct - if a bid of around !0m came in then the Burnley board would find it too hard to resist.

I agree but find it hard to understand why the Burnley board are not pulling out all the stops to keep their prize asset. Rovers, even with the threat of FFP have done what was needed to keep their prize asset. If Burnley are serious about staying in the P.L. they really need to get their finger out and quickly.

Blackburn then placed a price tag of £10m on Rhodes hoping to squeeze out an extra couple of million ahead of FFP, however the plan backfired spectacularly as not only did Norwich not return with an improved offer but Rhodes agent also demanded a whopping pay rise for his client who was also attracting interest from several premier league clubs.

Blackburn were therefore forced to keep their only saleable asset happy by complying with the obscene demands for a £15,000 a week pay increase to prevent Rhodes handing in a transfer request and forcing through a move at £8m or perhaps even less.

You will keep him until January when FFP sanctions will dictate that he must be sold to offset some of the circa £15m additional loss as a result of the reduction in parachute payments and the contracts that have been paid off.

I would say that it is you who is the clueless birdbrain, and it is you who will be feeling more than a little ashamed and embarrassed when your clubs accounts are exposed in December.

Blackburn Rovers represents a shambles the likes of which has never been seen before in the English game. Rotten to the core. And it is this very financial mismanagement that will ensure that you are staying down forever.

Burnley fan in peace.

I can understand the need to tie down your top player and main goalscorer, however did he not have a few years left on his present deal which was already an astronomical wage for the championship? It is fair to say he is on premiership wages especially if it is true his salary has increased under this new deal.
Instead of offering this new deal could that money not have gone on another incoming player to help strengthen the defence for example?
On those wages I would be expecting him to be the leading championship scorer next season and to be getting my club promoted. Sure Fulham will think the same of McCormack as well.
For me it is crazy money in the 2nd tier of football and not sustainable.
Fair comments but at the end of the day we don't know what Rhodes is paid do we, it's all speculation.

The one thing guaranteed at this level is he delivers goals, even when asked to play a role that doesn't suit his style (as most of last season), and that attribute is priceless at any level.

By offering the new deal Rovers have tied him to the club, made his agent an happy man, and made certain that anyone who wants to unsettle him is going to have to pay a significant sum if they are serious.

Think about it, they are going to have to at least match his contract plus meet Rover's valuation as well.

Where do you draw the line at crazy money? Mid table PL clubs are currently offering £20, 30, 40 million for players I have never heard of, some of the top clubs, take Man City for example, must have £250 to 500 million worth of players on their books that can't even get on the bench let alone play a game every now and then.

Is everyone here not seeing the most pleasing comment in the article?!? Ruben Rochina has travelled to Portugal with the 27 man squad. Suggests to me that he Gary may want to include him in his plans and I think that would be a major boost! one hell of a player.

Pathetic backtracking once again from the no-dad's.

I'm reliably informed by a Blackburn Rovers fan no less that Jordan Rhodes basic salary is now an obscene £53,000 a week, with multiple clauses stipulating he has the right to speak to any premier league club from January. This has all come about following an £8m offer from Norwich.

Rhodes and his agent have simply held your club to ransom. He has no interest in remaining with Blackburn Rovers but as the club have priced him at £10m he can demand a whopping pay increase until the January panic starts and Norwich, West Ham, Everton or any number of struggling premier league clubs come in with an acceptable offer.

The reality for Venkys is that Blackburn Rovers have no chance of promotion but a good run of goals from Rhodes prior to his inevitable departure in January could see you to a safe position ahead of the FFP molesting. I think from then on you are looking at a fight to stay in the Championship and following the final parachute payment a complete clear out and reduction in both squad size and wage bill to survive the threat of administration. Should Venkys decide to walk away however then you are in a whole heap of trouble.

The future for you lot is decidedly grim to say the least.
Like I wrote before,you are clueless and a bird brain.Just to put the record straight,Norwich did not make an offer for Rhodes.
Norwich had an £8m offer rejected.

Blackburn then placed a price tag of £10m on Rhodes hoping to squeeze out an extra couple of million ahead of FFP, however the plan backfired spectacularly as not only did Norwich not return with an improved offer but Rhodes agent also demanded a whopping pay rise for his client who was also attracting interest from several premier league clubs.

Blackburn were therefore forced to keep their only saleable asset happy by complying with the obscene demands for a £15,000 a week pay increase to prevent Rhodes handing in a transfer request and forcing through a move at £8m or perhaps even less.

You will keep him until January when FFP sanctions will dictate that he must be sold to offset some of the circa £15m additional loss as a result of the reduction in parachute payments and the contracts that have been paid off.

I would say that it is you who is the clueless birdbrain, and it is you who will be feeling more than a little ashamed and embarrassed when your clubs accounts are exposed in December.

Super C'unt: You have been saying Rhodes will be going in the next transfer window, ever since he signed for us. You know NOTHING. You talk SH1TE. Now get back on your sister, you irritating little man.

I've gotta say the comments from our resident trolls are so dull... "Rhodes is going", " You're in melt down", "FFP" Blah blah blah and blah... I'm happy to admit that local rivalry encourages idiots on both sides to post the most ridiculous posts of hate and bile, would be an absolute marvel if we could get some good banter and constructive conversations going????… I grew up in between Burnley and Blackburn in the 80’s my brother is Burnley Fan, me I’m a Rover, and we have the odd bit of banter and still a good punch up every now and then, but generally we discuss the teams prospects, successes and failures alike. I’ve gotta say I love it when we play each other, the build-up, atmosphere, games, beer ;)… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, fair play to Burnley for getting out of the championship, on the budget, small squad, facilities they have… Definitely punched above their weight last season, Rovers who seem to be turning the corner after seasons of mismanagement are getting back in order… I suppose what I’m getting at is that if you can’t look past local rivalry to take an impartial view from time to time to assess a team, your own team, then I don’t think you can consider yourself a fan of the sport and are more about being part of a tribe, wanting to belong, it’s a sorry state really.

Right Football Stuff Rhodes staying is brilliant news for the rovers, as for what it will cost us in regards to finances who knows, it’s just pure guess work, and am sure that we have people in the club who will make sure it works for rovers as much as the player, that’s how my employer treats me, If I work hard, show ambition, give the required commitment, I benefit as much as they do… All in all I think our off season work has been good, tied an epic goal scorer down brought in squad players to push the starting 11, who fit GBs mould, hungry (queue Dunn jokes lol), good attitude, and ambitious, can’t wait for the season to start, there’s a lot of good teams in the championship and I for one am relishing the challenge, and do think we will be there or there abouts.

Oh and I’ll chip in on the new shirt I quite like it, the sponsor I know nothing about them and will research accordingly, the advert, brilliant crass if you ask me, if you can’t laugh at yourself who can you laugh at…. Right that’s it from me… ROVER AND OUT….(see what I did there!!!!)

I can understand the need to tie down your top player and main goalscorer, however did he not have a few years left on his present deal which was already an astronomical wage for the championship? It is fair to say he is on premiership wages especially if it is true his salary has increased under this new deal.
Instead of offering this new deal could that money not have gone on another incoming player to help strengthen the defence for example?
On those wages I would be expecting him to be the leading championship scorer next season and to be getting my club promoted. Sure Fulham will think the same of McCormack as well.
For me it is crazy money in the 2nd tier of football and not sustainable.
Jealousy is a terrible thing.
No facts and all based on assumption - so why post?

Premier League wages I'm led to believe as Bumley are 'Premier League' are £8-15k/week. Maybe as commented abov that's why Bumley are likely to lose Ings.

At the end of the day, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. And that's what you have at TurdMorgue.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, your bull **** just gets funnier and funnier and more unbelievable doesn't it Barry?

Yeah, I am sure that Matt Taylor for example who has joined after spending the last 12 years as a PL player has settled for wages of between £8 and £15k a week.

Give you massive neanderthal head a wobble.
Work out the maths.

Dyche has £16 million to spend to revamp his squad for the PL (widely reported in this paper at the end of this season).

£10,000 pw is £520,000 pa, that's why the poor sod is going for free transfers to bolster what any real fan knows is a pretty paltry squad.

£20,000 is double that. soon mounts up and before you know it the crocks and part time players have hoovered up the £16 million....gone.

Decent Championship players who could possibly succeed in the PL have turned you down to stay in the Championship, that alone has to tell even a numpty like you that there is something pretty rotten going on at the club you pretend to support.

Cheers lads, nice to have some sensible responses and previously I have asked the question of whether Rovers should go for it this summer or try and wait and see what happens. Personally I think you have little choice and this season is extremely important for you.
With regards to Ings I actually share similar thoughts. The Burnley board find themselves in an unusual situation with him whereby they actually hold the aces. Simple facts are these:
He needs to play prem football to enhance his career and he will be in the shop window at Burnley for certain as he will play each week.
At the end of his contract if he moves on we will still be entitled to compensation which could be circa 5m.
The quandary for the Burnley board is do they try and cash in on their best asset at this stage which would gain them an extra say 3m+ or take the gamble that he is probably the best chance of us staying up.
Also take into account that it is looking likely J Rod will be sold by Soton at some stage and we are likely to make about 3m from that deal.
Complete non-brainer for me. I would offer improved terms with a release clause if Burnley are relegated (Waiting the responses of what do you mean if lol) or let him see out his contract and then take the compensation. Not much of a gamble from where I am sitting.
My instinct - if a bid of around !0m came in then the Burnley board would find it too hard to resist.
your thesis sounds fair - but i am confused as to how you would get £5m compo for him at the end of his contract - didn't eddie howe buy him from bournemouth? he didn't come through your ranks, i don't think.

personally, i agree that ings (and his agent, no doubt) does hold the aces and have to weigh up whether to go for broke now or at the end of the season. i guess it depends how big his balls are.

if i were him and he is as good as he thinks he is - it would probably be better holding on at burnley without signing a new contract and if he is even moderately successful in the prem for your team then with little or no transfer fee - he could get a better deal at a bigger club the following season regardless of whether burnley stay up or not. if you do by some miracle you do stay up and he scores a bucket-load then and is happy at the dingledome - then he could, in effect name his price.

from what i am told he is happy living in the area - i understand he has a house in higherford and is not particularly flashy in lifestyle (someone told me he went out to sycamore farm carvery after your lot beat us in the derby). however, no doubt an agent sniffing some filthy lucre can turn a lot of heads and despite someone saying they are happy and "intend" to stay - the reality often ends up being totally different.

for your club's sake it would be better if he stayed as it looks like you are recruiting waifs and stray and, to quote les dawson, knock-kneed k.nackered old nose bags and the board are not letting dycheman having much of a sniff of the windfall. i for-see an extremely tough season for you and your supporters. most of your fans are pragmatic and realise this (much as we realised immediately that kean was a paper tiger) - but there are a few that think denial is a river in egypt.

by the way - have a word with that complete idiot that calls itself super claret - it does your fellow supporters no favours.

For Addski1981

I posted this on another thread and make no apology for c&p lol.

From what I can see on their website Zebra Claims are basically a PPI claims company.

They make their money by chasing Banks, Building Societies, Loans Companies; etc on behalf of clients who didn't know that said companies had applied Payment Protection Insurance on loans without telling the people who took the loans out, people like you, me, even our resident troll.

People who don't know, or even don't think they have or are being ripped off, and don't have the knowledge, or clout to do it themselves.

PPI applied to, say a mortgage, could run into several thousand pounds, I know one lady who used a similar company to Zebra Claims to get nearly £3,500 back from her Building Society, she had no idea that PPI had been applied to her mortgage when she took it out.

The company she used operated on a no win no fee basis, so they did ok out of it as well, I don't know how much they charged but she was pretty happy with the arrangement.

When we switched our mortgage from the TSB to the Halifax many moons ago I noticed something in the small detail that had put just under 10% of the monthly payment onto the total cost, when I asked what it was I was told it was just insurance in case of sickness, lost job; etc.

At the time we didn't know what PPI was.

Had I not spotted it we would have ended up paying around £7000 extra over the term of the loan, and wouldn't have had a bloody clue we were being ripped off.

Since then we have made certain that PPI hasn't been applied to loans for cars, a new kitchen and a conservatory.

So, lets put it in perspective, I don't know Zebra Claims from Adam, but if they are anything like the company that helped our friend recover £3.5k from a greedy b*****d Building Society then I will wear the shirt with pride.

The cost of PPI to millions of people runs into billions of pounds.

Agree McClaret Nice to enjoy some decent footy chat - interesting how the idiots are carrying on their "banter" in the background
Like you I believe the Burnley board should offer Ings a decent deal as to me they can't lose - he scores in the prem and his value goes up, if not hen only a short term financial loss
Interesting read about how Blackpool only have 8 players !
To me the reality for Burnley is promotion has given the club an opportunity for some financial stability over the next few years regardless of what happens on the pitch. At least the club is not trying for crap marquee signings who just then take the money and run.
Good luck next season McClaret its a big one for both clubs I reckon

PPI applied to, say a mortgage, could run into several thousand pounds, I know one lady who used a similar company to Zebra Claims to get nearly £3,500 back from her Building Society, she had no idea that PPI had been applied to her mortgage when she took it out.

The company she used operated on a no win no fee basis, so they did ok out of it as well, I don't know how much they charged but she was pretty happy with the arrangement.

When we switched our mortgage from the TSB to the Halifax many moons ago I noticed something in the small detail that had put just under 10% of the monthly payment onto the total cost, when I asked what it was I was told it was just insurance in case of sickness, lost job; etc.

At the time we didn't know what PPI was.

Had I not spotted it we would have ended up paying around £7000 extra over the term of the loan, and wouldn't have had a bloody clue we were being ripped off.

Since then we have made certain that PPI hasn't been applied to loans for cars, a new kitchen and a conservatory.

So, lets put it in perspective, I don't know Zebra Claims from Adam, but if they are anything like the company that helped our friend recover £3.5k from a greedy b*****d Building Society then I will wear the shirt with pride.

The cost of PPI to millions of people runs into billions of pounds.
Nice one Owd Nick, Appreciate the info... I got a little PPI kick back this year, so as you say, if they are getting money back for the ordinary people from a greed ridden industry, I for one have no issue and will be more than happy with what I think is a cool looking shirt...normally go for the away top, do we know when its due to be unveiled?????

Cheers lads, nice to have some sensible responses and previously I have asked the question of whether Rovers should go for it this summer or try and wait and see what happens. Personally I think you have little choice and this season is extremely important for you.
With regards to Ings I actually share similar thoughts. The Burnley board find themselves in an unusual situation with him whereby they actually hold the aces. Simple facts are these:
He needs to play prem football to enhance his career and he will be in the shop window at Burnley for certain as he will play each week.
At the end of his contract if he moves on we will still be entitled to compensation which could be circa 5m.
The quandary for the Burnley board is do they try and cash in on their best asset at this stage which would gain them an extra say 3m+ or take the gamble that he is probably the best chance of us staying up.
Also take into account that it is looking likely J Rod will be sold by Soton at some stage and we are likely to make about 3m from that deal.
Complete non-brainer for me. I would offer improved terms with a release clause if Burnley are relegated (Waiting the responses of what do you mean if lol) or let him see out his contract and then take the compensation. Not much of a gamble from where I am sitting.
My instinct - if a bid of around !0m came in then the Burnley board would find it too hard to resist.
Its fans like you that make me want Burnley to do well in the Premier League, however 'fans' like Super Claret, JWID, Chuck... really make me want your lot to lose all 38 games heavily!

I'm all for banter and appropriate comments on each others boards, showing genuine debate and decent questions about each others squads, however the immature ones who loves to point out FFP, administration, League One football, Rhodes being sold in every transfer window absolutely ruins it for your club.

Just seen one of his comments claiming he has a Rovers friend that knows Rhodes is on £53k a week, more BS from him. Everyone on here knows how many friends he really has!

All the best MC, hope you enjoy it in the big time - get your board to spend a penny or two and you could have a good season!!

I can understand the need to tie down your top player and main goalscorer, however did he not have a few years left on his present deal which was already an astronomical wage for the championship?

Instead of offering this new deal could that money not have gone on another incoming player to help strengthen the defence for example?
On those wages I would be expecting him to be the leading championship scorer next season and to be getting my club promoted. Sure Fulham will think the same of McCormack as well.
For me it is crazy money in the 2nd tier of football and not sustainable.
See what you mean Mc but players like Rhodes don't come cheap especially if you are determined to keep them.
Not being funny but if your board offered Ings proper Premiership renumeration there wouldn't be this doubt about him staying or going. As I say quality doesn't come cheap. Burnley need to show Ings how much they want him or set their sights lower.
They've set their sites by signing the lad from Boro and Sordell as ready made cheapo replacements for Ings. The problem with clubs like Burnley when they go up is not necessarily the players having no Premiership experience, but the management and board not having the skills and business experience. I think they're trying to do a West Brom and be tight, but the Baggies have got a very experienced senior businessman at the helm and If they don't watch out they'll be doing a Blackpool. Shame!COYB

so wheres the money gone and why are you scrapping round in the bargin basement.

Recently Sean Dyche has stated clearly, "we wont be buying from abroad because we do not have the scouts", "we are not the type of club to spend £45 K a week on wages" and now he saying the Ross McCormack transfer has blown the market out of proportion.
All this translates as "we are going to spend nothing because we have not got a clue what we are doing and we want to keep the cash anyway"

You just keep sucking it in , they will be telling you relegation is a good thing by the end of the season. Fans on here have been accused of being happy clappers for much less . Wake up they are having you over.

All this translates as "we are going to spend nothing because we have not got a clue what we are doing and we want to keep the cash anyway" You just keep sucking it in , they will be telling you relegation is a good thing by the end of the season. Fans on here have been accused of being happy clappers for much less . Wake up they are having you over. Bruce "Rovers" lee

Now you ve gone up they are still spending next to nothing and have even put season tickets up and you lot are to busy being blinded by the big lights to see it.

At least dick turpin wore a mask
LOL.. You mean like our friend Jordan "Turpin" Rhodes..

Please can one of you Blackburn folk answer the follow questions for me?

1. Burnley are a debt free football club, are Blackburn Rovers?
2. Burnley are in the Premier League, are Blackburn Rovers?
3. Burnley are a well-run, very we'll-respected family oriented football club with strong links to the local community, are Blackburn Rovers?
3. Burnley have a boardroom of successful local businessmen who are all lifelong Burnley supporters, who have Blackburn Rovers got in the boardroom?

Part of that £100mil (a made up figure from a brainless dingle) was investment in the ground and facilities. Your Cat C facilities are an absolute joke, and your third world ground isn't much better.

Pathetic backtracking once again from the no-dad's.

I'm reliably informed by a Blackburn Rovers fan no less that Jordan Rhodes basic salary is now an obscene £53,000 a week, with multiple clauses stipulating he has the right to speak to any premier league club from January. This has all come about following an £8m offer from Norwich.

Rhodes and his agent have simply held your club to ransom. He has no interest in remaining with Blackburn Rovers but as the club have priced him at £10m he can demand a whopping pay increase until the January panic starts and Norwich, West Ham, Everton or any number of struggling premier league clubs come in with an acceptable offer.

The reality for Venkys is that Blackburn Rovers have no chance of promotion but a good run of goals from Rhodes prior to his inevitable departure in January could see you to a safe position ahead of the FFP molesting. I think from then on you are looking at a fight to stay in the Championship and following the final parachute payment a complete clear out and reduction in both squad size and wage bill to survive the threat of administration. Should Venkys decide to walk away however then you are in a whole heap of trouble.

The future for you lot is decidedly grim to say the least.
Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes has extended his contract with the Championship club to 2019.
"I'm very happy. It is a fantastic football club and I'm very lucky to be here," said Rhodes.
"I enjoy coming in every day and to have an extension of two more years on top of my current contract is a real bonus.
"The fans have been great ever since I've come in the place and I've just thoroughly enjoyed it so I'm delighted to be here

Not as funny as the way your board continues to get money to disappear out of the club. \look at your investments since your time in the premier league, where did all the money go. Now you ve gone up they are still spending next to nothing and have even put season tickets up and you lot are to busy being blinded by the big lights to see it.

At least dick turpin wore a mask
LOL.. You mean like our friend Jordan "Turpin" Rhodes..

Please can one of you Blackburn folk answer the follow questions for me?

1. Burnley are a debt free football club, are Blackburn Rovers?
2. Burnley are in the Premier League, are Blackburn Rovers?
3. Burnley are a well-run, very we'll-respected family oriented football club with strong links to the local community, are Blackburn Rovers?
3. Burnley have a boardroom of successful local businessmen who are all lifelong Burnley supporters, who have Blackburn Rovers got in the boardroom?
4 burnley are 4/7 favorites to be relegated from premier league
HAPPY DAYS
Burnley we're forth favourites for relegation from the Championship and how did that work out for you?

Interestingly the bookies have Blackburn Rovers a poultry TENTH favourite for promotion from the Championship.

Still HAPPY DAYS?

LOL!

Cheers lads, nice to have some sensible responses and previously I have asked the question of whether Rovers should go for it this summer or try and wait and see what happens. Personally I think you have little choice and this season is extremely important for you.
With regards to Ings I actually share similar thoughts. The Burnley board find themselves in an unusual situation with him whereby they actually hold the aces. Simple facts are these:
He needs to play prem football to enhance his career and he will be in the shop window at Burnley for certain as he will play each week.
At the end of his contract if he moves on we will still be entitled to compensation which could be circa 5m.
The quandary for the Burnley board is do they try and cash in on their best asset at this stage which would gain them an extra say 3m+ or take the gamble that he is probably the best chance of us staying up.
Also take into account that it is looking likely J Rod will be sold by Soton at some stage and we are likely to make about 3m from that deal.
Complete non-brainer for me. I would offer improved terms with a release clause if Burnley are relegated (Waiting the responses of what do you mean if lol) or let him see out his contract and then take the compensation. Not much of a gamble from where I am sitting.
My instinct - if a bid of around !0m came in then the Burnley board would find it too hard to resist.
Agree McClaret Nice to enjoy some decent footy chat - interesting how the idiots are carrying on their "banter" in the background
Like you I believe the Burnley board should offer Ings a decent deal as to me they can't lose - he scores in the prem and his value goes up, if not hen only a short term financial loss
Interesting read about how Blackpool only have 8 players !
To me the reality for Burnley is promotion has given the club an opportunity for some financial stability over the next few years regardless of what happens on the pitch. At least the club is not trying for crap marquee signings who just then take the money and run.
Good luck next season McClaret its a big one for both clubs I reckon
Always enjoy talking footy rather than the other crud that seems to spoil these pages.
Friend who is a Blackpool season ticket holder saw this one coming. They have survived on so many loan players over recent years that the majority of contracted players have been allowed to see their contracts expire without any new players on contracts coming in. It will be no surprise to see them with 8-10 loan players on the way.
As another post points out - City have up to 250m+ of talent that can't even get on the bench so there is plenty available in the loan market. Have Blackpool seen the way forward in keeping wage costs low and effectively playing reserve team premier players on loan.
For me I think you have done the right thing with Rhodes, if he can fire you up this season then great and he has paid you back in full.

I posted this on another thread and make no apology for c&p lol.

From what I can see on their website Zebra Claims are basically a PPI claims company.

They make their money by chasing Banks, Building Societies, Loans Companies; etc on behalf of clients who didn't know that said companies had applied Payment Protection Insurance on loans without telling the people who took the loans out, people like you, me, even our resident troll.

People who don't know, or even don't think they have or are being ripped off, and don't have the knowledge, or clout to do it themselves.

PPI applied to, say a mortgage, could run into several thousand pounds, I know one lady who used a similar company to Zebra Claims to get nearly £3,500 back from her Building Society, she had no idea that PPI had been applied to her mortgage when she took it out.

The company she used operated on a no win no fee basis, so they did ok out of it as well, I don't know how much they charged but she was pretty happy with the arrangement.

When we switched our mortgage from the TSB to the Halifax many moons ago I noticed something in the small detail that had put just under 10% of the monthly payment onto the total cost, when I asked what it was I was told it was just insurance in case of sickness, lost job; etc.

At the time we didn't know what PPI was.

Had I not spotted it we would have ended up paying around £7000 extra over the term of the loan, and wouldn't have had a bloody clue we were being ripped off.

Since then we have made certain that PPI hasn't been applied to loans for cars, a new kitchen and a conservatory.

So, lets put it in perspective, I don't know Zebra Claims from Adam, but if they are anything like the company that helped our friend recover £3.5k from a greedy b*****d Building Society then I will wear the shirt with pride.

The cost of PPI to millions of people runs into billions of pounds.
Nice one Owd Nick, Appreciate the info... I got a little PPI kick back this year, so as you say, if they are getting money back for the ordinary people from a greed ridden industry, I for one have no issue and will be more than happy with what I think is a cool looking shirt...normally go for the away top, do we know when its due to be unveiled?????
Tomorrow, will be getting ours next Monday I would think.

Pathetic backtracking once again from the no-dad's.

I'm reliably informed by a Blackburn Rovers fan no less that Jordan Rhodes basic salary is now an obscene £53,000 a week, with multiple clauses stipulating he has the right to speak to any premier league club from January. This has all come about following an £8m offer from Norwich.

Rhodes and his agent have simply held your club to ransom. He has no interest in remaining with Blackburn Rovers but as the club have priced him at £10m he can demand a whopping pay increase until the January panic starts and Norwich, West Ham, Everton or any number of struggling premier league clubs come in with an acceptable offer.

The reality for Venkys is that Blackburn Rovers have no chance of promotion but a good run of goals from Rhodes prior to his inevitable departure in January could see you to a safe position ahead of the FFP molesting. I think from then on you are looking at a fight to stay in the Championship and following the final parachute payment a complete clear out and reduction in both squad size and wage bill to survive the threat of administration. Should Venkys decide to walk away however then you are in a whole heap of trouble.

He has no interest in remaining with Blackburn Rovers but as the club have priced him at £10m he can demand a whopping pay increase until the January panic starts and Norwich, West Ham, Everton or any number of struggling premier league clubs come in with an acceptable offer. The reality for Venkys is that Blackburn Rovers have no chance of promotion but a good run of goals from Rhodes prior to his inevitable departure in January could see you to a safe position ahead of the FFP molesting. I think from then on you are looking at a fight to stay in the Championship and following the final parachute payment a complete clear out and reduction in both squad size and wage bill to survive the threat of administration. Should Venkys decide to walk away however then you are in a whole heap of trouble. The future for you lot is decidedly grim to say the least.[/p][/quote]I thought you informed us that Rhodes leaving this summer was inevitable? Oops who's backtracking now.. Brfcforever!
