Kevin Gallacher column: Dunn still has plenty to offer Rovers but may move on

Lancashire Telegraph: David Dunn celebrates David Dunn celebrates

DAVID Dunn’s new contract comes down to two things for me.

The first is financial and can he accept the terms that are going to be offered to him as we all know the club has to continue knocking the wage bill down.

And the second is from a playing point of view as it seems Gary Bowyer has now decided that playing two strikers up front, in Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede, is the way to go.

Plan B may be to drop a player behind one of the frontmen but is coming off the bench going to be enough for Dunny?

It’s clear he still wants to play and still can play.

Rovers may not be able to offer that but can they afford to let him go as he such a good player to have around the dressing room?

There are loads of factors you have to consider when you’re thinking about what a player brings to a football club, it’s not just about what they do on the field.

I had it myself when I left Blackburn Rovers to sign for Newcastle United.

They took me up there because of the way I played football but also to lift the spirits in the dressing room.

I helped do that and after they had two years use out of me I was on my way.

Players always have a time span at a club. Maybe this is Dunny’s.

If he wants one last swansong at a club where he will play regularly maybe now is that time.

But whatever happens Blackburn do have to look to replace him eventually.

If you look at Tom Cairney, my player of the season, he is more like the Dunny of old in that he can play in midfield and break from the middle of the park.

He can play in a two in there or as part of a three and the more experience he gets the better he will become.

He played most of the season out wide and, as an experiment and as an experience, it will have served him well.

But next season is the time to play him in the middle as it’s from there that he gets more involved in a game rather than floating in and out of one like he does when played out wide.

David is still a very talented player, when he's not playing Chase-the-Ace with Dickson A-boo-boo, but unless he's guaranteed first-team football when he is fit, I don't think it matters what terms the club offers him, he'll be off. It will be sad to see him go as he's become a 'club great', but Tom Cairney is a very capable successor.

Surely Dunny is not stupid enough to think he can play 90 minutes a week for a full season for anybody.

He needs to start thinking about the future and if he wants to get involved in coaching, where better to start ?

If he gets another season at Blackburn playing cup games and regular sub appearances he should be well pleased to be at a club he loves.

Unbelievable

Deja Vu

Are Team GB serious

This is last srasons pre season repeating itself.

Are they serious about getting into the top 2 places or even the lottery of the playoffs 2014 2015 season.

This is no time for;

Sentimentality or
Weak management

What are Team GB thinking of when talking about signing Luke Varney or even contemplating on giving David Dunn any form of playing contract

All monies should be spent on QUALITY.

Right back
Centre mudfield playmaker to cover for any injury to Cairney and a Goalkeeper. Jason Steele

Do we really need to spend money on David Dunn just to be chiving players onat the training ground I despair.

It would be great if he could stay to mentor the likes of Tom Cairney, Corry Evans and, hopefully, Ruben Rochina, but he's already given an interview saying he's not interested in coaching. If the boss has already returned from India, as reported, I hope it gets sorted out, one way or another, as soon as possible. I can't see him agreeing to a new contract on reduced terms, yet I can't see another club taking him on either. It's a hard one to call, that's for sure!

Captain Dreckley says...

Kevin talks about Dunny wanting to play and every Rovers fan would love to see him as the first name on the team sheet, play 90 minutes and feature in every game of the season. But that isn't going to happen and hasn't happened for quite a few seasons due to persistant injuries and the fact he cannot manage more than 70 minutes. Nobody can question his commitment and talent and had he listened to Souness and curbed his lifestyle rather than sulk off to Birmingham then a new contract would be a given. If we look at the cropof promising English midfielders when Dunny was in his prime we have Dunny struggling to manage 70 minutes and playing in 25% of games whilst Frank Lampard is likely to be on the plane to Brazil. Time for us to say a big thank you for the memories but time to move on.

UEFA DEFEATS LEGAL CHALLENGE TO FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES.

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

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

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

"Dupont could not be reached for comment."

Championship clubs will vote this week on proposals to change the Football League’s Financial Fair Play rules.

A number of ammendments have been put forward by both the Football League and clubs in an attempt to improve the regulations.

The proposals need a two-thirds majority of the 24 Championship clubs to be approved. Results of the vote are expected to be announced later this week.

Any changes to the regulations would relate to the accounts for the 2014‑2015 season.

It has been clear at least since the Bosman ruling of the CJEU1
that sporting rules governing the ‘economic’ aspects of sport can be challenged under EU law:
a. the EU rules on the free movement of workers, Article 45 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU);
b. Article 101 TFEU, prohibiting anti-competitive agreements and decisions of an “association of undertakings” (which includes sporting bodies such as UEFA); and
c. Article 102 TFEU, prohibiting anti-competitive abuse of a dominant market position by a sporting organisation controlling a major sport. i.e EUFA
In addition to EU law, UK law could also apply to sporting rules – in particular:
a. the Chapter I and II prohibitions of the Competition Act 1998, the domestic equivalent to Articles 101 and 102 TFEU;
b. the common law doctrine of restraint of trade, which makes restrictive provisions of an agreement unenforceable unless they can be justified as reasonable both between the parties and as a matter of public policy; and
c. public law requirements requiring UK bodies to follow fair procedures.

alternatively if rovers are keen on a coaching/development role - you have an opportunity there - but dont take to it in a half-hearted manner
