Blackburn Rovers keeper Paul Robinson as 'sharp' as he has been in years - as club's stance on Jordan Rhodes remains the same

BLACKBURN Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson admits he feels as sharp as he has been in years as he gets sets to make his 200th appearance for the club.

The 34-year-old is ready to bring up the double century at Wolves on Saturday and he will go into the clash with the Championship new boys on the back of two top-notch performances.

Robinson followed up his man-of-the-match display in the defeat at Norwich City – in which he made a save-of-the-season contender from Lewis Grabban – by playing a key role in Saturday’s home win over Bournemouth.

The former England number one puts his form down to the fact he has enjoyed a full pre-season for the first time since 2012.

And Robinson, who was sidelined throughout the summer of 2013 while he recovered from the blood clot on his lung which threatened his life, is now eyeing the possibility of extending his stay at Ewood Park into an eighth season.

“I am feeling great,” said Robinson, who has one year remaining on his Rovers contract.

“I’ve had my first full pre-season in about two years and I think I am reaping the rewards of that.

“I made a save at Norwich on Tuesday which I was very pleased with and I felt it in my performance on Saturday.

“I am starting to feel very sharp again.

“I’ve got another year here and I would like to stay here.

“But I have got to work hard, get my head down and keep doing what I’m doing.

“We’ll see what happens come the end of the season.”

The build up-to the 3-2 victory over Bournemouth – in which Robinson made one blinding stop to deny Yann Kermorgant – was overshadowed by Hull City’s pursuit of £12m-rated Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes.

Rhodes, who up until the morning of the match was not certain to play, has been praised for the professionalism he showed.

But Robinson also believes Rovers boss Gary Bowyer deserves credit for his handling of the situation.

“The manager was fantastic – he was completely honest with us,” said Robinson, who has been on the losing side just four times in the 25 league appearances he has made since making his comeback in January.

“When he gave us the team on Friday, he said ‘listen, this is no secret, there has been a bid made and it might happen or it might not – this is the team if Jordan is in it and this is the team if he is not’.

“It wasn’t two teams – we had a way of playing if Jordan was not. The person who was going to play instead of Jordan knew he was going to play.

“It was nice and refreshing. The manager told us, ‘it’s no secret, there is no point hiding behind doors. This is what will happen if he is playing and this is what will happen if he is not. He might be here, he might not. If he is here, he’s playing’.

“It was an absolutely brilliant way to do it. Absolutely fantastic.”

Rovers’ stance over Rhodes, meanwhile, remains the same – he is not for sale despite reports suggesting Hull were still confident of getting their man.

Rhodes was yesterday left out of the Scotland squad for their Euro 2016 qualifier away to world champions Germany on September 7.

But Rovers captain Grant Hanley was included in the squad.

Bowyer, meanwhile, today returns from his trip to India for a pre-planned meeting with Venky’s.

As some of the Venkys where at the game on Saturday not sure why Bowyer would have travelled to India?
As for Robinson feeling sharp, not sure he was that sharp when the ball rolled underneath him at Blackpool. I still feel we need a new goalie as Robinsons best days are behind him.

He's a great pro in the championship - suspect from shots from outside the area, but otherwise consistent and experienced. I think our weaknesses are in front of him - defence/midfield when we need to be a bit tighter/tougher to see games out. He needs a decent understudy tho.

I cant fault Robbo on his organisation , Distribution and close range saves. But his long range saves are starting to be a bit of an issue and that has to come down to fitness. At 34 for a keeper he is still got some year left , look at Brad friedel, it comes down to a desire to keep fit ect. Last year was a nightmare season for him and in terms of physical fitness he does not look fully recovered. The loss of few pounds would help but at the minute I am happier when I see hes playing, his experience this season could prove invaluable.

Hull City's £12million bid for Jordan Rhodes rejected by Blackburn Rovers

This is from the Daily Telegraph this morning which goes on to say that Bruce is considering a fourth offer.

If Jordan is still with us by next Tuesday I think the Venkys will be welcome back to Ewood with open arms and Jordan will have achieved legend status.

It would give the whole club a boost and would send out a message to the football world that our dark crazy Kean days are behind us. The mighty Rovers are back.

If he's not with us it will be because Hull are desperate and will pay over the odds.

Well done to the Venkys in not selling out. Jordan, please don't ask for a transfer.

Bring on the Wolves for a Jordan hat trick and Robbo clean sheet!

The danger is you then have 2 more unknown quantities who you need to take a risk on to prove if they have it in them to replace Robbo.

Personally I would keep one, probably Jake, he's young and showed some talent in his earlier stints in goal, I think he's worth another go if we can get the back four settled.

Oh dear, we're all getting a bit panicky about Jordan leaving aren't we.

The simple facts are thus:

1. Hull want Rhodes and they have the money to buy him.
2. Hull can offer Rhodes Premier League football.
3. Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League.

I believe this morning Hull are preparing another offer which if rejected again will see Rhodes make a request for a transfer. He doesn't want to stay with us in the second division I'm afraid, and who can blame him.

We should accept that we cannot hold onto players any more, we're a selling a club and we need to address the financial issues at the club before thinking about building for the future. We just have to hope that Luke Varney magically turns into the best finisher outside of the top flight and bangs in the 25-goals we'll be missing, otherwise we're f@#ked.

Well I've gotta say... Venkys stance regarding Rhodes is good... Personally I hope he stays, but either way... Hull are going to pay over the odds or we continue the season with the best strike pairing in the championship... Ever since the hull stories broke last week, there have be statements in the stories attributed to no one, "It will take 12m", "Jordan to hand in a transfer request"... There is no point in worrying about it till an official statement is made, much like the "Jordan is not for sale." That was a joy to read, and I believe its a stance that can help mend bridges between owners club and fans, although if he goes after this and no transfer request is received I can see a rumble of discontent hitting the terraces... I truly hope that is not the case as I have been relatively happy being a rovers fan this season!!!!! Up t'Rovers!!!

Standard answer given by all players when a move is imminent. Once Rhodes agent is informed that a final offer is to be submitted by Hull then a transfer request will be submitted. Its standard practice.

Why would he stay when we have no chance of promotion and his value will only drop if he spends another season playing in a poor side. I'm just being realistic here, Rhodes will be looking at becoming a first choice striker in a decent premier league side thats currently playing European football under a highly rated English manager, he's taken us as far as he can and if we insist on keeping an unhappy player then it will be to our detriment, and he will then leave for a smaller fee in January.

Jordan has served us well and earned his move to a bigger club playing top flight football.

Its tme for us to move on.

Best way to shut Bruce up is to slap a 20 million price tag on Jordan and tell him to take it or leave it. End of story. Jordan won't be asking for a transfer, not to join Hull anyway.

The Rhodes issue now comes down to integrity and trust. What we do know as true are :-

1. Rhodes issued a statement he would stay with Blackburn as long as they wanted him.

2. The Venkys have issued a statement saying they do not intend to sell him.

3. Steve Bruce stated they would speak to Blackburn in the next 24/48 hours ( Sunday) and if it is not to be they would move on.

All we can do is wait and see. Great start so far to the season.

He did say that he will stay while he is wanted but since someone has indicated they were prepared to let him go at one stage may have changed his stance. Only time will tell and Venkys will ultimately decide if he leaves or not. If they do manage to keep him this will the biggest plus for Venkys PR with the fans since they arrived at the club

The danger is you then have 2 more unknown quantities who you need to take a risk on to prove if they have it in them to replace Robbo.

Personally I would keep one, probably Jake, he's young and showed some talent in his earlier stints in goal, I think he's worth another go if we can get the back four settled.
They both have to go for me, Jake is a decent shot stopper but thats where it ends.

His decision making and inability to command his area are poor, decent lower league keeper but not good enough for our level, time for him and Eastwood to go.

On the story above yes Robbo may be a good pro and good to have around the changing room but we should be on the market for a new number one. He is too slow at getting down to shots and looks like he needs to go on celebrity fat club. Don't get me wrong I love his passion for the club but he has never lived up to his name at rovers. Hope he gets offed a coaching role when his contract expires.

i am sure i will miss some out but bradshaw, butcher, arnold, o'keeke, gennoe, bunn, garner (ha ha!), flowers, freidel, mimms, filan......only john butcher out of that lot didn't really cut the mustard. but since robinson arrived he has really had his knockers - a lot of those are about his weight (anybody remember neville southall?)

personally i think we look more composed with him in goal than keane who could go on to be a great keeper. equally, he seems more capable of marshalling a defence than the other options. yes, he is prone to the odd mistake - but so was brad and tim. (collymore anybody?) but i dont think goalkeeper is one area of the field where we need have the most serious issues.

"I believe this morning Hull are preparing another offer which if rejected again will see Rhodes make a request for a transfer" Well if you believe it,then it must be true given your past record of predictions. Quote from Rhodes, I will only leave if Rovers want to sell me.I wont ask to leave.
'Quote from Rhodes, I will only leave if Rovers want to sell me.I wont ask to leave.'

On Saturday, Jordan told me that he does not want to leave but it is not his decision. He is very happy at Rovers!

Having met Jordan countless times (to the extent that he even addresses me by name each time), I know Jordan to be a very grounded and level-headed person. Someone who works with him and the other players also confirmed that money will not change him and money is not everything, anyway.

Of course it isnt because he's already fleeced us for a £53,000 a week 5 year contract. A contract of that size in the second division simply isnt economically viable for a club of our size and has simply been offered on the basis that we keep him happy until a Premier League team comes calling who is willing to pay our asking price. Its simply a matter of time before he leaves, to believe otherwise is ridiculous.

Blackburn Rovers have to date paid Jordan Rhodes a whopping £4.7m in wages since he joined the club for £8m. Thats before his recent wage increase and any signing on or agents fees. A total outlay of a minimum of £12.7m by Venkys means they will want to recoup this money and more on top. It will however not be reinvested due to our poor financial situation and the fact that we still owe Huddersfield Town half of the original fee.

Whether some of you claim to know the player on a personal level or not is irrelevant to his aim of playing in the top flight. His agent will be doing everything possible to conclude the deal with Hull given the amount of money talked about along with the simple fact that a football player must take his opportunity when it arises less he miss out due to injury. This is what Jordan will be considering, move now or risk picking up an injury and missing out on what might be a one time only chance. Its a short career and like it or not a player will only ever look after number one.

Rhodes will go before the end of the transfer window. The only question is have we already got his replacement? I refer to the somewhat surprising and as some of you said at the time unneccesary signing of Chris Brown?

Squeaky bum time for us all.

I have to say the Venky’s have acted with great honour in this and particularly so after the dreadful insults they have received over time from the Rovers fans. However as you correctly point out if the player wants to go then he will. This is unfortunately football these days. His agent will love it of course because he will get a big slice.

The Rhodes issue now comes down to integrity and trust. What we do know as true are :-

1. Rhodes issued a statement he would stay with Blackburn as long as they wanted him.

2. The Venkys have issued a statement saying they do not intend to sell him.

3. Steve Bruce stated they would speak to Blackburn in the next 24/48 hours ( Sunday) and if it is not to be they would move on.

All we can do is wait and see. Great start so far to the season.
Don’t worry. Blackburn will not sell him, because Venky’s know that they will finish mid-table without him. Unless, of course, he demands to go.

"I believe this morning Hull are preparing another offer which if rejected again will see Rhodes make a request for a transfer" Well if you believe it,then it must be true given your past record of predictions. Quote from Rhodes, I will only leave if Rovers want to sell me.I wont ask to leave.
'Quote from Rhodes, I will only leave if Rovers want to sell me.I wont ask to leave.'

On Saturday, Jordan told me that he does not want to leave but it is not his decision. He is very happy at Rovers!

Having met Jordan countless times (to the extent that he even addresses me by name each time), I know Jordan to be a very grounded and level-headed person. Someone who works with him and the other players also confirmed that money will not change him and money is not everything, anyway.
Of course it isnt because he's already fleeced us for a £53,000 a week 5 year contract. A contract of that size in the second division simply isnt economically viable for a club of our size and has simply been offered on the basis that we keep him happy until a Premier League team comes calling who is willing to pay our asking price. Its simply a matter of time before he leaves, to believe otherwise is ridiculous.

Blackburn Rovers have to date paid Jordan Rhodes a whopping £4.7m in wages since he joined the club for £8m. Thats before his recent wage increase and any signing on or agents fees. A total outlay of a minimum of £12.7m by Venkys means they will want to recoup this money and more on top. It will however not be reinvested due to our poor financial situation and the fact that we still owe Huddersfield Town half of the original fee.

Whether some of you claim to know the player on a personal level or not is irrelevant to his aim of playing in the top flight. His agent will be doing everything possible to conclude the deal with Hull given the amount of money talked about along with the simple fact that a football player must take his opportunity when it arises less he miss out due to injury. This is what Jordan will be considering, move now or risk picking up an injury and missing out on what might be a one time only chance. Its a short career and like it or not a player will only ever look after number one.

Rhodes will go before the end of the transfer window. The only question is have we already got his replacement? I refer to the somewhat surprising and as some of you said at the time unneccesary signing of Chris Brown?

Squeaky bum time for us all.
So let me get this straight we are supposed to discount the views of those who claim to have personal contact with him as nonsense, but yet we are supposed to take as absolute certainty your information. Just explain where you get your figures from I really would be interested to know.

Thats exactly my point, and what several of the imbeciles above fail to grasp. Rhodes has earned his move and if we stand in his way we only risk upsetting a player who has singlehandedly kept us in the Championship for the last two season. He's done good for us so we should gracefully allow him to have a crack in the Premier League as opposed to souring a relationship that has been beneficial to both parties. The trouble is some Rovers fans are still desperately clinging to the notion that we will return to the Premier League. That ship has sailed. We had to bounce straight back up at the first attempt and our failure to do so means our future lies in the second or possibly third tier.

Sad but true.

Venkys will grant Rhodes the move he desperately wants and we will have to make do with what we've got.

Don't think Venkys will sell him, not after saying he's not for sale, that would just undo all the trust that they have built up with the supporters over the last year.
As for Burnley being "a strong side" they must be, the weight of all the other prem teams resting on them and still not caved in........ yet.

If i were a dingle, god forbid. I would be very worried about the no sale stance from rovers . Hull may have to turn there attentions elswhere! a nice cheeky 4 million bid for Ings and he could be off to a bigger and more established premier club.

Oh dear, we're all getting a bit panicky about Jordan leaving aren't we.

The simple facts are thus:

1. Hull want Rhodes and they have the money to buy him.
2. Hull can offer Rhodes Premier League football.
3. Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League.

I believe this morning Hull are preparing another offer which if rejected again will see Rhodes make a request for a transfer. He doesn't want to stay with us in the second division I'm afraid, and who can blame him.

We should accept that we cannot hold onto players any more, we're a selling a club and we need to address the financial issues at the club before thinking about building for the future. We just have to hope that Luke Varney magically turns into the best finisher outside of the top flight and bangs in the 25-goals we'll be missing, otherwise we're f@#ked.
Millions of sperm and you were the quickest.
Frightening...
Indeed. The rest of them dripped down his sisters leg.
And the connection to football is what? This forum would benefit from the disappearance of your distasteful garbage.
problem is the site isn't moderated - they wouldn't dare post like that on the Burnley Express site.
That's why you are on here with your filth.

Given they haven't succeeded in signed either Bryson or Lansbury, it's been suggested that they might be having a look at Cairney to bolster their midfield.

God forbid we lose Rhodes and Cairney this week, especially Cairney to that lot, I don't know how we'd ever live it down.
If i were a dingle, god forbid. I would be very worried about the no sale stance from rovers . Hull may have to turn there attentions elswhere! a nice cheeky 4 million bid for Ings and he could be off to a bigger and more established premier club.
Absolutely and if Bruce doesn't get Rhodes, which is unlikely, he's going to have to move fast to find an alternative. Ings wouldn't think twice about moving for more money.

The fact that Ings had no interest in a new contract with the clampets is a clear indicator he doesn't want to be there.

£4m and he's a Hull player.

Agreed Ted, Ings is obviously after more money and isn't happy with what Burnley have offered him. Given the chance he'd jump at the thought of joining Hull.
