Blackburn Rovers target still part of West Brom plan

First published in Sport

WEST Bromwich Albion have insisted that Jerome Thomas remains part of their first-team plans despite continued interest from Blackburn Rovers.

Thomas was due to join Rovers on a permanent basis on the final day of the January transfer window but they were unable to complete the deal before the deadline.

Michael Appleton, a former coach at Albion, has since been attempting to bring Thomas in on loan, reiterating his interest this week.

But, although not completely ruling out a temporary switch, West Brom assistant manager Keith Downing said the Baggies are likely to hang on to Thomas for now – even though the 29-year-old wide man was not in the squad for Saturday’s game with Sunderland.

Downing, assistant to Albion boss Steve Clarke, said: “Michael (Appleton) had the interest before the deadline day so he’s continuing that.

“We have a squad of 19, 20, 21 players at the very most, so from our point of view Jerome has been in and around it.

“He was out on Saturday as he was the 19th man but he was in the 18 at Liverpool and he played against Villa so he’s very much part of our plans here at this present time.

“It’s a decision for Steve (Clarke) but from the point of view of our squad size, Jerome is very much part of things here.

“Anything can happen over the next few weekends and you can be down to the bare bones.

“I wouldn’t say it's ‘highly unlikely’, as it’s Steve’s decision.

“But at the moment I would say Jerome is very much part of our squad, having had a part to play in recent times.”

It was DJ Campbell's deal that took the time throwing the Thomas deal out.

Think we have missed the boat there, anyway there is more improvement needed than just a winger.Need Bently and DJ to step up to the plate as I don't think he will drop them. Forget Rekik at left back put Givet in for now.and we already have a left winger. Would love to see Goodwillie get a run in the side before we decide to ship him out. Anyway it's down to you MA I feel sure you will get it right eventually,good luck mate.

Just saw this news on the Rovers website about travel to Millwall:

Blackburn Rovers fans planning to attend the forthcoming FA Cup sixth round tie against Millwall on Sunday March 10th should note that the rail network between London Bridge and South Bermondsey – the closest station to The Den – will be suspended on the day of the game.

Therefore, supporters travelling by train would need to get the underground from Central London to Surrey Quays and then walk to the stadium.

I know Surrey Quays area quite well and the pub on the corner across from the station is called 'Surrey Docks' and even though it is a Wetherspoon pub it is where all the Millwall nutters will congregate before and after the game...a very dodgy place best avoided!

If you want a few beers before the game best to go around London Bridge station before you get on the tube to Surrey Quays. And don't take the short cut through the local estate when you come out the station either.... but apart from all that then it could be a good day out for Rovers as we progress to the semis..!

We could send modan to India see if Venkys got any more loose change in their purse for more funds more players at Rovers.
Modan' posting about Venkys how rich they are like the royal family over there with palaces rolls royces and bodyguards.
India is a place of inequality of wealth distribution with
10% of the population are super rich owns 50% of the wealth in India
10% of the Indians are dollar millionaires owns 42% of the wealth
80% of the poor living on 10% of the wealth in India.
The gap between rich and poor is so vast that 50% of the population live on a $1 a day and and 50% of the children suffers from malnutrition in India.
India might be a rich country but the in equality of wealth distribution has led to one third on abject poverty and living in squalor.
India is the second fastest growing economy in the world but the 400 million poorest people are not benefiting from this booming economy in India it's the rich are getting more richer like the Venkys.
The corrupt politicians need to act in India and help the millions who are poor in India the people living in squalor and abject poverty.
Spending billions on space programs defence and buying rolls royces for elites when over one third of the population are hungry .
Modan's posting is about India cause the owner's of BRFC is in India and Blackburn has a large Indian population.
Me i just laugh it off cause modan is just boasting about India when one knows India has a lot of problem like poverty and corruption in the country,

I.m glad to hear from someone who knows how ruthless and corrupt business works in India. So you'll know that a major business like venkys does not keep hold of a satelite business that is no longer profitable,preferrin
g usually to strip it of any remaining value,then to either sell it of as a failed business or send it to the wall,which is why they set up the satelites with no monetry links to their main body ie; venkys London ,which owns B.R.F.C. but is not linked to venys India ofcourse. You'll also know that firms such as venkys have accountants that can make their accounts show exactly what they desire them to show, which is why the accounts and bank accounts concerning B.R.F.C. where quickly transfered to The Bank of India & their own paid accountants. I would therefore like to ask you,as someone who knows how Indian big buisiness operates ; What do you make of the situation at Ewood presently? And what do you think venkys plans will be for the Clubs future ? considering that the Clubs main assets have been cashed in over the last two years,leaving the Club in need of a very large cash injection to keep it afloat .. I would begratefull for your answer Sir ...R.T.I.D.

Yes i am modan i did say India is an emerging economy and India is the second fastest growing economy in the world after China.India has 350 million on poverty and India is trying to eradicate poverty by 2025.Indian Government is spending £70 billion on welfare to lift millions out poverty every year.The Western governments are to stop economic aid to India on 2015 and Indian President says the sum of $4.5 billion is peanuts as India is spending £70 Billion on welfare to help the poor in India.
As for BRFC this was bought by Venkys of Pune India not as a profitable business as we know when Venkys bought BRFC the club had a debt of £25 million which Venkys took on board.The club is loosing money and Venkys are now keeping the club afloat with large cash injection from Venkys other profitable business around the world which made profits of £100 million last year.
Football clubs are a rich man's toy in their spare times and football club do not make profits it's just a sport people enjoy.Thats why the English sugar daddies have sold all our clubs foreign Billionaires.
Abromwich bought Chelsea and spent £300 million in this club to this date.
The shiekh at Man City has spent £280 million
Some billionaires will spend crazy money on their football clubs but some billionaires will not break their bank and spend crazy amount of money.
Venkys did promise to spend between £15 million to £20 million a year in BRFC.
Shebby Singh made statement recently saying the club was in healthy financial position than many clubs in the Championship despite Rovers being relegated and if the oucome was if Rovers failed to get promoted back to PL this season.

Thanks for your reply,I apreciate it, though it has left me even more puzzled,. Even with the £25m debt the whole cost of B.R.F.C. still cost far less than just the debt of most Premiership sides of the same level and above than the Club was when sold,and as it was taken out as a bank loan under venkys London,it didn't cost the venkys anything personally I guess. If the Club was not bought as a profitable business,why were all the players of any repute sold off over the last two years? You are right that venkys promised to put money into the club every year ,though £5m was the figure given at the time i believe. I can however,see no evidence that any money has been forthcoming from the owners personally,apart from a small percentage of the sums that the player sales realised. The club infrastructure has been destroyed and the professional staff that helped to keep the Club where we were when sold ,were either replaced on the cheap or not replaced at all. If ,as you say, the Club is now losing money,this is largely because the venkys and their money grabbing cronies have dragged our Football Club down to the level of the 1970s , It is the venkys fault entirely that the gates have halved under them, that shirt sponsership dried up,that corporate box bookings dropped to almost zero, and above all I blame them 100% for taking what was a proud,respected mid Premiership Club and turning us into a laughing stock of a Club that has to rely on loan players just to put a squad out. They have no interest in the Club,they couldn't even be bothered staying to the end of the match at Ewood on only her 2nd visit in two years. What state are we going to be in when they finally get rid of their abused and unwanted toy???.....

I think the Venkeys should reduce the wage bill by streamlining the management staff down to the people Appleton respects.Forget this season whats the point of second rate loan signings we have lent out better players than we can attract in.

It's been wave after wave of parasites and mediocrity since the Vilekys regime took over. Shebby Singh just heads a list of many, from players right through to ownership for whom you could ask the same question.

Anybody that can't see the profiteering carried out by these 'owners' simply has their head in the sand. 35 million recouped in transfers alone, more when Rhodes is inevitably sold on, a lovely set of parachute payments and a whole host of dodgy dealings for the likes of Myles Anderson and Ruben Rochina.

Did I see Jay Tabb at Reading linked with us this morning on BBC ?

Might be good addition on loan.

Surely the youngsters we have that play in england under 18's etc, one must be pretty good or worth a shot to build for next year.

As this year we are unless little bit lucky going to come up short. Which is fine as we will clear wages for a lot of the players down. And move on with motivated grop of ambitious players.

All you described above is pure conjecture based on assumption and rumour - but probably with a smidgin of truth in there somewhere.

It is also how over 50% of football clubs are run these days. Barely legal deceit, barely legitimate dodgy dealing, minimisation of risk, agents all over the place and hangers-on a-plenty....all can be easily spotted at your typical English league club. The higher you go the richer and dirtier they all become.

SKY TV money gave 'birth' to these new breed of 'devil spawn' and gave the death knell to any semblance of decency that was left in our game.

The Venkys are no better or worse than others of their ilk who are everywhere around us in the game today.

if you think that dangerously deficient dave has any kind of point then I am afraid that you lose all credibility to talk about delusions Noddy...

The expectations of Appleton should be that he gets us promoted during his 2.5 year contract. That is what he has been employed to do.

He is barely a couple of months into that contract now and what a mess he had (and still has) to sort out. We cannot keep changing managers just because a few results don't go our way. We have no divine right to suddenly improve from our lowly position and start beating teams like Cardiff, Hull and Leicester who have been working on their squads for a couple of years to get them to this point now. It takes time.....

Appleton needs to be given that time to turn this mess that he inherited around - there are no better alternatives.

There are no top line managers waiting to come in - there are no money men waiting or wanting to buy the club. This is it.....sad but true. Support MA.

Venkys were too busy tightening the purse strings.
We could send modan to India see if Venkys got any more loose change in their purse for more funds more players at Rovers.
Modan' posting about Venkys how rich they are like the royal family over there with palaces rolls royces and bodyguards.
India is a place of inequality of wealth distribution with
10% of the population are super rich owns 50% of the wealth in India
10% of the Indians are dollar millionaires owns 42% of the wealth
80% of the poor living on 10% of the wealth in India.
The gap between rich and poor is so vast that 50% of the population live on a $1 a day and and 50% of the children suffers from malnutrition in India.
India might be a rich country but the in equality of wealth distribution has led to one third on abject poverty and living in squalor.
India is the second fastest growing economy in the world but the 400 million poorest people are not benefiting from this booming economy in India it's the rich are getting more richer like the Venkys.
The corrupt politicians need to act in India and help the millions who are poor in India the people living in squalor and abject poverty.
Spending billions on space programs defence and buying rolls royces for elites when over one third of the population are hungry .
Modan's posting is about India cause the owner's of BRFC is in India and Blackburn has a large Indian population.
