Strike ace Rhodes says Rovers can home in on play-offs

CENTURION Jordan Rhodes insists Blackburn Rovers have to keep their focus after his double boosted hopes of a late play-off challenge.

The Rovers striker scored a goal in each half to secure a 2-0 home win over struggling Bristol City and insisted afterwards their promotion dreams were now “doable”.

It was announced at Ewood on Saturday that Rhodes’ two goals had taken him to 100 career league goals but the 22-year-old insisted the statisticians were wrong and that he had already reached his milestone.

The record books do agree that Rhodes has now scored in Rovers’ last six league games as he took his tally to 19 in all competitions for the club, leaving Michael Appleton’s men just seven points shy of the play-offs.

Rhodes, said: “I don’t know the stats but I got 100 league goals two or three games ago. I’m happy but everyone is two or three games out.

“I got my 100 a couple of games ago and celebrated internally. If you look through the records and add them up its now 102.

“I am happy. I aimed to get the 100 league goals by the age of 22 and I turn 23 next week.

“The play-offs are very much doable but at the same time it is important we keep our feet on the ground and stay level headed and take one game at a time.

“We have had a few games this season when our minds seemed elsewhere and you can count on two hands the games where we were in front and let teams come back into it in the last five or ten minutes, letting teams equalise or score a winner.

“We have to concentrate on the task in d and that is now next week and Ipswich where it is important to get a win. They beat Middlesbrough 4-0 today so they are a tough team.”

Rhodes received most of the plaudits on Saturday but the 22-year-old was quick to divert the praise away from himself.

He said: “It wasn’t a matter of who got the goals today, it wasn’t a matter of being pretty. It was just about getting the result.

“I’m on a good run, but at the same time it’s not a matter of who gets the goals just a case of getting them and securing a win.

“We need exactly the same mentality got into next weeks game with Ipswich.

“Sometimes you go into games and the ball falls for you and some times you do exactly the same and it doesn’t happen.

“Sometimes you make those runs to the near post and the ball goes to the back. It is just that little bit of luck. The ball just managed to find me a couple of times today.”

Meanwhile, former Portsmouth midfielder Lee Williamson is set to join Rovers this week. He is currently a free agent.

And DJ Campbell and Jerome Thomas should complete their loan moves to Ewood Park on Friday.

Modest maybe but the truth is that Rhodes was the difference between three and one point on Saturday. Let's hope that Campbell and Best help lighten the load and we can get some decent supply in from the flanks. I have to admit, from what little we have seen of him this season, Nunes can deliver a fantastic final ball. I hope the loan window does see us introduce some bite and also creativity into midfield because we are still lacking. I don't know what MA has done at the back but Hanley has come on leaps and bounds, maybe he has been told to stop looking to Dann to take the lead. Dann has also picked up his game but will never be a leader in defence like Nelsen, Short or Berg, just a number 2. Things are looking considerably brighter for the remainder of the season.

Bricklayer? I thought he was Lazarus, rising from the dead as the transfer window closed as nobody made a bid for him. Vastly over rated by the dingles. If they had played him in the latter part of December and all of January who knows where they could be in the table now. A serious error of judgement from a club known for its greed looking to cash in rather than focus on football.

Great to see that Rhodes is level headed and more importantly TOTALLY realistic about our performances. He does not gloss over everything when he knows things are still not quite right.

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.

In spite of all the problems we have had with Venky's you have got to give them credit for this signing. They were determined to get him and came up with the cash. What a good move, pity about some of the others though. They need Best and Cambell in the event this boy gets injured because he is playing a lot of games.

If we can keep in touch with the top 6 then have a Moh Farah finish for the last 10 games we have a chance of the play offs - that's a massive if though.

uber b&w - get real.

we are definitely not a prem outfit at the moment - god forbid that we were sneak into the play-offs and then even worse get promoted - heaven knows what grief we would encounter in the top drawer.

this rest of this season should be about trying to get some equilibrium and consolidation at ewood and make sure that everything is in place next season for a proper assault on the promotion spots in 13/14 (venkys/shabby and the other clowns permitting).

appleton is talking a good game and we are progressively looking a bit more like a team, as opposed, to a bunch of stangers - BUT! we are a way off where we need to be.

i know we, as rovers fans, can be accused of being overly negative and inwardly naval gazing - but you cannot under-estimate the trail of destruction heaped upon our club in such a short time. sure other clubs have gone doolally and bananas - but generally these clubs had been in chaos for a number of years - but rovers capitulated in effectively 12 months. the closest i can think of to rovers is birmingham city (who to my shortsighted eyes are in more trouble than us) and karsten yeung has been involved at blues since 2007 (takeover in mid 2009).

get our business in order - and with a fair wind; mount a challenge next season and if we are lucky we may be ready for the prem in 14/15. remember when we went down in 98/99 - it took the removal of kidd and the rebuilding by souness for us to come back two seasons later - and then we were a much better organised club with a stable base and jack walker still there (at least for the first season in D1.....or whatever it was called then)

Why get involved I have just been chatting to a long standing Burnley fan and he thinks its marvellous that they are 3 points ahead of us in the league table. I pointed out that we had a game in hand which he denied and said we had played the same number of games so it seems the highlight of a Burnley fan's season is to finish higher than Rovers a club that has had 5 different managers in just over half a season.

Only 17 games to go and there you are in the bottom half of the championship, 3 points behind Burnley. Bet you never expected that did you?

Might be time for some of you to lower your sights a little and accept what you've become. The truth is you now have a very weak squad with only one exception in Rhodes, who will likely jump ship at the end of the season; a team of ageing mercenaries on large contracts cobbled together by 3 shaved space monkeys and a board of directors made up of Indian Chicken Farmers who, having turned you into the laughing stock of English football, are now intent on running you into the ground. And yet still some of you believe the worst is over? You poor deluded cretins.

large as in two years. which will end of next season. Hardly large.

btw, we've won last two games under Appy so yeah feeling a little confident since no transfers were made into the club during that time. Best is back soon and Williamson, Campbell and Thomas in the first team should really up the gameplay.

Bonleh derby at home is going to be fun yet predicable.

It was obvious on Saturday that we will be scuppered if Rhodes is injured therefore some of the other players chipping in is desperately needed plus new additions. I think with Leon Best and Campbell we will have a few more goal scorers. Pedersen came close hitting the bar and why is Nuno not getting some playing Time? Please stop replying to the Burnley fan. The whole site is ruined with absolute drooling retarded jibber. One poster provoked it and its like somebody has rung the dingle cave because straight away, one of them is at it full motor. We've heard the same things over and over. It's absolute garbage from both ends.

I agree. They're not interested in anything other than winding up Rovers' supporters. Stop replying to these mindless morons and eventually they'll lose interest and go away, You never know, they might actually start posting comments on ther own site !!

Great to see that Rhodes is level headed and more importantly TOTALLY realistic about our performances. He does not gloss over everything when he knows things are still not quite right.

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.
I spotted a consistency error....

" Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target" + "CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile"

So our second striker, who has a combined goal tally of 3 goals all season, didn't score again, didn't hit the target again, didn't create any assists, didn't create any chances whatsoever and to you he was OUTSTANDING MAN OF THE MATCH?!

Or do you base that on the fact that "he won the headers from the longballs"? The 90% of balls that come from our backline that are aimed at him. I counted 6 times thourghout 90 mins where CKR was bearing down on goal and decided to shoot. How many of those hit the target? Zero. I think the lad Goodwillie would be at least able to test the keeper once in 90 mins.

Desperate times. Venky's obviously want to escape from their Blackburn nightmare as soon as possible. Slashing the wage bill, moving on the remaining Premier League players and bringing in cheaper alternatives. If Rovers miss out on promotion this year then Venky's will no doubt take what they can out of the club before making a hasty retreat back to India. Administration, points deduction and further relegation likely to follow. It's not looking good.

Surprise Surprise. It doesn't matter whether they're top players or not, if they earn good money they've got to go and that's been the pattern for the last two seasons, even when we were in the Premier League, and look where it got us.
If you want a top team / players you've got to pay the going rate if you want to head in an upward direction.
Have Venkys learned ?... No....Promotion....N
o.
If you pay second rate players second rate wages, guess what, you'll end up second rate.

this rest of this season should be about trying to get some equilibrium and consolidation at ewood and make sure that everything is in place next season for a proper assault on the promotion spots in 13/14 (venkys/shabby and the other clowns permitting).

appleton is talking a good game and we are progressively looking a bit more like a team, as opposed, to a bunch of stangers - BUT! we are a way off where we need to be.

i know we, as rovers fans, can be accused of being overly negative and inwardly naval gazing - but you cannot under-estimate the trail of destruction heaped upon our club in such a short time. sure other clubs have gone doolally and bananas - but generally these clubs had been in chaos for a number of years - but rovers capitulated in effectively 12 months. the closest i can think of to rovers is birmingham city (who to my shortsighted eyes are in more trouble than us) and karsten yeung has been involved at blues since 2007 (takeover in mid 2009).

get our business in order - and with a fair wind; mount a challenge next season and if we are lucky we may be ready for the prem in 14/15. remember when we went down in 98/99 - it took the removal of kidd and the rebuilding by souness for us to come back two seasons later - and then we were a much better organised club with a stable base and jack walker still there (at least for the first season in D1.....or whatever it was called then)
Can't argue, my sentiments entirely, my main concern would be that if we did make the play offs and didn't succeed the negativity would increase and knock us back again.

Everything about the club is fragile at present, it's going to take a lot of effort all round to get things back on an even keel.

4.3 million for Best, 8 million for Rhodes, bet Kazim Richards isn't on 20 quid a week, or Murphy, Etuhu, etc; etc.

You do talk some ****.

Robinson has been crap all season, responsible for at least three home defeats, and lets not even talk about Givet, they don't want to play for anyone outside the PL but they want PL wages.

Clear them out and start again.

Or in your fevered imagination do you think that at the end of last season if any PL club had come in for them they would have stayed at Ewood?

There is no sentiment and scant loyalty in football anymore, especially from the players.

Sorry, but I thought it was common knowledge that if you pay second rate wages you will attract second rate players.
If you had read my post correctly and understood it instead of seeing red, you will have noticed that the practice of off loading the top earners has been going on for two years now.
Which direction have we been heading ?

Hasslem you are missing a crucial factor in our last campaign to win promotion. We still had the support of Jack Walker, we had an experienced manager and our team then was better than it is now. What would we give now for a young Duff, and Dunn, Jansen, Berkovich, Craig Short, Hughes. What happened last time is not a blueprint for this time. There isnt a blueprint for a venture under Venkys!!

Desperate times. Venky's obviously want to escape from their Blackburn nightmare as soon as possible. Slashing the wage bill, moving on the remaining Premier League players and bringing in cheaper alternatives. If Rovers miss out on promotion this year then Venky's will no doubt take what they can out of the club before making a hasty retreat back to India. Administration, points deduction and further relegation likely to follow. It's not looking good.
You really are a doom merchant. Im a glass half empty person but in the case of Robinson I don't see it like that. Robinson would still be my number one but he has obviously lost his place to a younger keeper who has done well so far. Rovers were letting him got to West Ham on a free but Robinson I understand, wants his contract paying up. I understand he is in the situation Roberts and Salgado was in terms of games played and contract length so if he isn't going to be selected then why have him on the wage bill sitting it out for his pay? There isn't any club that would do that. Agreed Venkys are trying to trim the wage bill. It was a substantial part of our outgoings. Some of us think they have done it in the wrong areas. Got rid of good players and brought in dross on the advice of Kean. Either way, the club, no championship club can afford to have such a high proportion of the income going on wages. You are always quick to remind us we arent in the premier league so why do you think we wouldnt move on premier league players?

So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

You and a few others need to stop believing the tripe spoon fed to you by BRAG and think what you are saying.

Do you not for one minute think that any of these players walked away from Ewood with an empty wallet? They all walked away with more money than you or I will ever see in our lifetime.

Because that's how contracts work.

Why didn't Robinson go to West Ham? Because he wanted his contract paid up before he would leave, that's why.

Does that not tell you anything?

Might be time for some of you to lower your sights a little and accept what you've become.

And yet still some of you believe the worst is over? You poor deluded cretins.
Bloody hell change the record are you not fed up yourself droning out the same old stuff everyday
It's okay to have other fans' opinions on here, I have friends who support various clubs including Burnley and we discuss it with a bit of a joke, it's just some of the stuff isnt even basic English. It's who can say the worse things. Like playground.

If you want a top team / players you've got to pay the going rate if you want to head in an upward direction.
Have Venkys learned ?... No....Promotion....N




o.
If you pay second rate players second rate wages, guess what, you'll end up second rate.
4.3 million for Best, 8 million for Rhodes, bet Kazim Richards isn't on 20 quid a week, or Murphy, Etuhu, etc; etc.

You do talk some ****.

Robinson has been crap all season, responsible for at least three home defeats, and lets not even talk about Givet, they don't want to play for anyone outside the PL but they want PL wages.

Clear them out and start again.

Or in your fevered imagination do you think that at the end of last season if any PL club had come in for them they would have stayed at Ewood?

There is no sentiment and scant loyalty in football anymore, especially from the players.
Sorry, but I thought it was common knowledge that if you pay second rate wages you will attract second rate players.
If you had read my post correctly and understood it instead of seeing red, you will have noticed that the practice of off loading the top earners has been going on for two years now.
Which direction have we been heading ?
So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

You and a few others need to stop believing the tripe spoon fed to you by BRAG and think what you are saying.

Do you not for one minute think that any of these players walked away from Ewood with an empty wallet? They all walked away with more money than you or I will ever see in our lifetime.

Because that's how contracts work.

Why didn't Robinson go to West Ham? Because he wanted his contract paid up before he would leave, that's why.

Does that not tell you anything?
I don't believe the tripe fed by BRAG as I don't read anything they have to say. I'm not interested.
I have my own mind and I don't believe all of those players you mention wanted out just because we were relegated.
Nelsen is a fighter and I don't believe for one minute that he would walk away from a fight. Jones was sold, Kalinic was sold Emmerton Freed, Yes freed, why. Salgado forced out along with others.
You have your opinion which you are entitled to, but I won't be convinced that Venkys were not happy to get the top earners off the books to replace them with cheap second raters, Rhodes excepted.
Hence our position now.

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.
I spotted a consistency error....

" Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target" + "CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile"

So our second striker, who has a combined goal tally of 3 goals all season, didn't score again, didn't hit the target again, didn't create any assists, didn't create any chances whatsoever and to you he was OUTSTANDING MAN OF THE MATCH?!

Or do you base that on the fact that "he won the headers from the longballs"? The 90% of balls that come from our backline that are aimed at him. I counted 6 times thourghout 90 mins where CKR was bearing down on goal and decided to shoot. How many of those hit the target? Zero. I think the lad Goodwillie would be at least able to test the keeper once in 90 mins.
Where was you at the Brighton game then? Because I watched Goodwillie quite clearly from the Blackburn end only testing our own keeper, in the worst possible way!!

appleton is talking a good game and we are progressively looking a bit more like a team, as opposed, to a bunch of stangers - BUT! we are a way off where we need to be.

i know we, as rovers fans, can be accused of being overly negative and inwardly naval gazing - but you cannot under-estimate the trail of destruction heaped upon our club in such a short time. sure other clubs have gone doolally and bananas - but generally these clubs had been in chaos for a number of years - but rovers capitulated in effectively 12 months. the closest i can think of to rovers is birmingham city (who to my shortsighted eyes are in more trouble than us) and karsten yeung has been involved at blues since 2007 (takeover in mid 2009).

get our business in order - and with a fair wind; mount a challenge next season and if we are lucky we may be ready for the prem in 14/15. remember when we went down in 98/99 - it took the removal of kidd and the rebuilding by souness for us to come back two seasons later - and then we were a much better organised club with a stable base and jack walker still there (at least for the first season in D1.....or whatever it was called then)
Can't argue, my sentiments entirely, my main concern would be that if we did make the play offs and didn't succeed the negativity would increase and knock us back again.

Everything about the club is fragile at present, it's going to take a lot of effort all round to get things back on an even keel.
Hasslem you are missing a crucial factor in our last campaign to win promotion. We still had the support of Jack Walker, we had an experienced manager and our team then was better than it is now. What would we give now for a young Duff, and Dunn, Jansen, Berkovich, Craig Short, Hughes. What happened last time is not a blueprint for this time. There isnt a blueprint for a venture under Venkys!!
regrettably you are wrong - we still had the support of jack walker IN SPIRIT - but I am certain that jack died very early in the season (may even been before the first game) i know it was a lovely sunny day down at crewe the day(s) after for the first game post Jack Walker - sure we had Walker signings etc. but Jack had turned up his toes long before those famous games at preston and birmingham.

i remember souness saying how much he regretted jack not being around to celebrate promotion

We were still in the PL with more than half a season to go when Nelsen got "injured" almost to the second that Allardyce left, I don't think he played for us again but was fit enough to play 90 minutes for Spurs two days after he signed for them.

We were still in the PL with more than half a season, blah, blah regarding Samba and Givet.

I agree that Salgado was treated badly, but he is the only one who has spoken up about it. The rest have kept very quiet, I wonder why?

The rest, all Allardyce men got what they wanted, away from the club with a very healthy bank balance, well Givet hasn't yet but he's still working on it.

Jones wasn't ours, he was on loan, there was never any chance of him signing full time, that was clear from the onset.

Rhodes or Kalinic? Who would you prefer?

So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

PS...Whatever the politics surrounding the departures of the top players / earners, it doesn't alter the fact that Venkys got good money for most of them.
They chose however not to replace them like for like, but preferred to bring in cheaper, inferior players on less money.
Hence our position now.

What are you talking about pratt and please try to write properly.
Listen... Fact, I was referring to Phil Jones who we sold to Manchester United for £ 17 million ....Fact
YOU can talk about any Jones that you want to, but don't stick your illiterate nose into other peoples posts when you haven't a clue what's going on.

Great to see that Rhodes is level headed and more importantly TOTALLY realistic about our performances. He does not gloss over everything when he knows things are still not quite right.

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.
Err, clearly you were not there then, as the second half did not kick off until the last 3 Rovers players came out, and since when did a referee start a half witout 22 men on the field?
Another phoney account trying to stir things?
I think so Matt Newcastle...not the first time you have posted cr*p

If Venkys sell up and go ,its fine by me they did buy BRFC on the cheap about £48 million with debts of £25 million.I was told Brfc was in the market for over two years the Walkers wanted about £100 million for BRFC, but no interest from anybody but an Indian man based in Middle East was the only man was shown interest in the club.He was called Hassan Ali Syed then he decided to buy the Spanish Club Racing Santander.He is friend of Venkys so he informed them Blackburn Rovers FC was in the Market, so the Venkys contacted the BRFC owners and Boardroom people .Venkys met Robert Coar,John Williams and the Walker family, all the parties were happy about Venkys takeover of BRFC.
Venky may have let the fans down ,when they sacked Sam Alladyce and promised to spend millions on new players.
Sam Alladyce told the press investment was needed at Brfc and was dried up since the club was put up for sale.Blackburn has a strong history it could have a bright future with the given the right sort of investment .
Venkys didn't live up to that promise by sacking Sam and appointing Steve Kean.
Venkys have made their mistake in the last two years then appointed Shebby Singh as global advisor and later Kean resigned.Fans were right that Venkys let their football club run into the ground.
Venkys now have to invest heavily and allow Appleton to buy players he want to win the fans back.Shebby and Hendry must be sacked.I would appoint someone like Simon Garner or Alan Shearer as club advisor to win the fans back. Venkys now realise that their mistakes .

Desperate times. Venky's obviously want to escape from their Blackburn nightmare as soon as possible. Slashing the wage bill, moving on the remaining Premier League players and bringing in cheaper alternatives. If Rovers miss out on promotion this year then Venky's will no doubt take what they can out of the club before making a hasty retreat back to India. Administration, points deduction and further relegation likely to follow. It's not looking good.
I try not to comment on scumley posts cos I don't think it is fair that we should keep laughing at the poor, deluded and unfortunate souls who live in the massive shadow of both Pendle Hill and the famous Blackburn Rovers. But u don't half talk some rubbish FT...

Venkys are going nowhere soon. There is still 32 Million quid to come to the club over the next three years in parachute payments, so we will be adding decent players (like Rhodes and Best et al) to the squad and pushing on this season to set ourselves up for automatic promotion next season. Though being in the play-offs this season should be a good experience for us.

So we will soon be waving you goodbye (once again) as we leave you at least one division lower over the next two seasons. Enjoy your brief flirt with the dizzying heights of 7th place cos that's the last time you will ever be that high again (unless you are on the wacky baccy)... go post on your own site if you even have one to post on?

Venkys are worth £2 billion in assets in India,Brazil,Europe and USA.Their business turnover of £1 Billion and a profit of around £100 million.They have poultry and pharmaceutical business in India,USA , Europe Middle East and Brazil.In India they have properties, football club in Pune,they have large mansions, many luxury cars like Rolls Royce,Bentleys and Mercedes and a private jet.They are one of the two hundreds billionaires in India.India have 48 million super Rich and 400 million middle class.There are 450 millon Indians on extreme poverty that some live in shanty towns in Cities or even sleep n pavements.The Indian Government now are spending £70 Billions to lift millions out of poverty every year,this is India's biggest challenge to eradicate poverty.India is a very rich country that is the biggest arms importer in the world,spends Billions on Defence,Space Program sending rockets and satellites into space.India is one of the most industrialzed country in the world with a population of 1.2 Billion and 650 million labour force.India is the second fatest growing economy in the world after China.India will be the next economic superpower after USA and China. From 2015 the USA,EU and Japan will stop all economic aid to India as Indian Goverment say the $4.5 billion foreign eonomic aid is peanuts as India spends £70 Billion every year on welfare on it's poor people. The British government says India is a very rich country that spends billions on Defence,Space program must help it's poor people.
I cannot defend Venkys for their mistakes about what promises they made to BRFC when they bought the Club.Brfc is a good club ,it's a historical club with the right sort of investments BRFC could be back in big times again.Venkys must invest heavily and allow Appleton more transfer funds to win the fans back.They must sack Shebby Singh he has no role here,he has no understanding of English Football clubs.Why not appoint Simon Garner or Alan Shearer as Club's advisor to win the fans back.Appleton is right Venky for time being must stay away from Ewood Park.I hope for BRFC a great club with great history the Venkys live up their promises.

Venkys didn't live up to that promise by sacking Sam and appointing Steve Kean.
Venkys have made their mistake in the last two years then appointed Shebby Singh as global advisor and later Kean resigned.Fans were right that Venkys let their football club run into the ground.

Great to see that Rhodes is level headed and more importantly TOTALLY realistic about our performances. He does not gloss over everything when he knows things are still not quite right.

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.
I spotted a consistency error....

" Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target" + "CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile"

So our second striker, who has a combined goal tally of 3 goals all season, didn't score again, didn't hit the target again, didn't create any assists, didn't create any chances whatsoever and to you he was OUTSTANDING MAN OF THE MATCH?!

Or do you base that on the fact that "he won the headers from the longballs"? The 90% of balls that come from our backline that are aimed at him. I counted 6 times thourghout 90 mins where CKR was bearing down on goal and decided to shoot. How many of those hit the target? Zero. I think the lad Goodwillie would be at least able to test the keeper once in 90 mins.
CKR

I am not his greatest fan however won balls in the air - held the ball up well - took some pressure off JR - Brought and played others into the game - filled the hole between JR and poor midfield

Whole lot better than Charlton etc games he has played.

Err, clearly you were not there then, as the second half did not kick off until the last 3 Rovers players came out, and since when did a referee start a half witout 22 men on the field?
Another phoney account trying to stir things?
I think so Matt Newcastle...not the first time you have posted cr*p
And your knowledge of the game is cr*p too
Darwen End actually and yes the second half started as Rhodes and two others just about crossed the white line so the referee did not wait for them to get into respective positions and that's why Murphy was hand gesturing to the dugout.

As for three chances yes they had three good chances their best the header just after half time which I was more or less directly in line with.

Did we have no penetration from midfield - No we did not.

My knowledge of the game may not be the greatest however is based on facts as is Jordan Rhodes, not based on head in the sand.

Do I think we can make the play offs -yes I do with two key signings.

Surprise Surprise. It doesn't matter whether they're top players or not, if they earn good money they've got to go and that's been the pattern for the last two seasons, even when we were in the Premier League, and look where it got us.
If you want a top team / players you've got to pay the going rate if you want to head in an upward direction.
Have Venkys learned ?... No....Promotion....N







o.
If you pay second rate players second rate wages, guess what, you'll end up second rate.
4.3 million for Best, 8 million for Rhodes, bet Kazim Richards isn't on 20 quid a week, or Murphy, Etuhu, etc; etc.

You do talk some ****.

Robinson has been crap all season, responsible for at least three home defeats, and lets not even talk about Givet, they don't want to play for anyone outside the PL but they want PL wages.

Clear them out and start again.

Or in your fevered imagination do you think that at the end of last season if any PL club had come in for them they would have stayed at Ewood?

There is no sentiment and scant loyalty in football anymore, especially from the players.
Sorry, but I thought it was common knowledge that if you pay second rate wages you will attract second rate players.
If you had read my post correctly and understood it instead of seeing red, you will have noticed that the practice of off loading the top earners has been going on for two years now.
Which direction have we been heading ?
So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

You and a few others need to stop believing the tripe spoon fed to you by BRAG and think what you are saying.

Do you not for one minute think that any of these players walked away from Ewood with an empty wallet? They all walked away with more money than you or I will ever see in our lifetime.

Because that's how contracts work.

Why didn't Robinson go to West Ham? Because he wanted his contract paid up before he would leave, that's why.

Does that not tell you anything?
I don't believe the tripe fed by BRAG as I don't read anything they have to say. I'm not interested.
I have my own mind and I don't believe all of those players you mention wanted out just because we were relegated.
Nelsen is a fighter and I don't believe for one minute that he would walk away from a fight. Jones was sold, Kalinic was sold Emmerton Freed, Yes freed, why. Salgado forced out along with others.
You have your opinion which you are entitled to, but I won't be convinced that Venkys were not happy to get the top earners off the books to replace them with cheap second raters, Rhodes excepted.
Hence our position now.
We were still in the PL with more than half a season to go when Nelsen got "injured" almost to the second that Allardyce left, I don't think he played for us again but was fit enough to play 90 minutes for Spurs two days after he signed for them.

We were still in the PL with more than half a season, blah, blah regarding Samba and Givet.

I agree that Salgado was treated badly, but he is the only one who has spoken up about it. The rest have kept very quiet, I wonder why?

The rest, all Allardyce men got what they wanted, away from the club with a very healthy bank balance, well Givet hasn't yet but he's still working on it.

Jones wasn't ours, he was on loan, there was never any chance of him signing full time, that was clear from the onset.

Rhodes or Kalinic? Who would you prefer?
OK , it was all the players fault that we were relegated, not Venkys.
I can see that you are one of those who are always right and will argue all night, I won't waste my time.
By the way, Jones WAS ours.
He went to Manchester United for £17, 000, 000 didn't he? or perhaps I'm wrong about that.
Sorry I thought you meant the real Jones, midfielder from Germany, a class player that some no-mark called Kean brought in, someone we would give our eye teeth to have in our side right now, not some spotty kid who is struggling to oust...erm...Ferdina
nd, from the red scum side.

I was obviously taking about a proven player, not a fec.

Surprise Surprise. It doesn't matter whether they're top players or not, if they earn good money they've got to go and that's been the pattern for the last two seasons, even when we were in the Premier League, and look where it got us.
If you want a top team / players you've got to pay the going rate if you want to head in an upward direction.
Have Venkys learned ?... No....Promotion....N








o.
If you pay second rate players second rate wages, guess what, you'll end up second rate.
4.3 million for Best, 8 million for Rhodes, bet Kazim Richards isn't on 20 quid a week, or Murphy, Etuhu, etc; etc.

You do talk some ****.

Robinson has been crap all season, responsible for at least three home defeats, and lets not even talk about Givet, they don't want to play for anyone outside the PL but they want PL wages.

Clear them out and start again.

Or in your fevered imagination do you think that at the end of last season if any PL club had come in for them they would have stayed at Ewood?

There is no sentiment and scant loyalty in football anymore, especially from the players.
Sorry, but I thought it was common knowledge that if you pay second rate wages you will attract second rate players.
If you had read my post correctly and understood it instead of seeing red, you will have noticed that the practice of off loading the top earners has been going on for two years now.
Which direction have we been heading ?
So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

You and a few others need to stop believing the tripe spoon fed to you by BRAG and think what you are saying.

Do you not for one minute think that any of these players walked away from Ewood with an empty wallet? They all walked away with more money than you or I will ever see in our lifetime.

Because that's how contracts work.

Why didn't Robinson go to West Ham? Because he wanted his contract paid up before he would leave, that's why.

Does that not tell you anything?
I don't believe the tripe fed by BRAG as I don't read anything they have to say. I'm not interested.
I have my own mind and I don't believe all of those players you mention wanted out just because we were relegated.
Nelsen is a fighter and I don't believe for one minute that he would walk away from a fight. Jones was sold, Kalinic was sold Emmerton Freed, Yes freed, why. Salgado forced out along with others.
You have your opinion which you are entitled to, but I won't be convinced that Venkys were not happy to get the top earners off the books to replace them with cheap second raters, Rhodes excepted.
Hence our position now.
We were still in the PL with more than half a season to go when Nelsen got "injured" almost to the second that Allardyce left, I don't think he played for us again but was fit enough to play 90 minutes for Spurs two days after he signed for them.

We were still in the PL with more than half a season, blah, blah regarding Samba and Givet.

I agree that Salgado was treated badly, but he is the only one who has spoken up about it. The rest have kept very quiet, I wonder why?

The rest, all Allardyce men got what they wanted, away from the club with a very healthy bank balance, well Givet hasn't yet but he's still working on it.

Jones wasn't ours, he was on loan, there was never any chance of him signing full time, that was clear from the onset.

Rhodes or Kalinic? Who would you prefer?
OK , it was all the players fault that we were relegated, not Venkys.
I can see that you are one of those who are always right and will argue all night, I won't waste my time.

And yes, who were actually on the pitch when the final whistle blew last season, Venky's or the professional footballers?

Who could have made the difference on the pitch, Venky's or the professional footballers?

At the end of the day Venky's have been total clowns, but they are not highly paid professional footballers.

End of game.

Sam Alladyce told the press investment was needed at Brfc and was dried up since the club was put up for sale.Blackburn has a strong history it could have a bright future with the given the right sort of investment .
Venkys didn't live up to that promise by sacking Sam and appointing Steve Kean.
Venkys have made their mistake in the last two years then appointed Shebby Singh as global advisor and later Kean resigned.Fans were right that Venkys let their football club run into the ground.

So, 450m in poverty and £70bn a year spent on getting them out of it....

That's £150 a head a year.

I appreciate workers don't get paid much in India and it is dirt cheap to live there but they must be starting at a pretty low point if they are considered to be in poverty under those circumstances. I don't see many of them joining your darlings the super rich anytime soon though.

The super rich will continue to get richer and the poor poorer. It is the way so called super economies work. Take the American dream; Over 99% of the US's wealth is in the hands of less than 1% of its population yet everybody believes they can make their millions despite remaining slaves to those who already have.

If you're happy continuing paying hommage to the super rich as though they represent the people of India then by all means carry on. I doubt they look at themselves in quite the same way.

It's all pretty irrelevant as far as this forum is concerned mind, but that hasn't stopped dear old Modan thus far (ad nauseum).

Cue list of zillionaires and economic forecasts for the next century.

Cue list of zillionaires and economic forecasts for the next century. whappen

Surprise Surprise. It doesn't matter whether they're top players or not, if they earn good money they've got to go and that's been the pattern for the last two seasons, even when we were in the Premier League, and look where it got us.
If you want a top team / players you've got to pay the going rate if you want to head in an upward direction.
Have Venkys learned ?... No....Promotion....N









o.
If you pay second rate players second rate wages, guess what, you'll end up second rate.
4.3 million for Best, 8 million for Rhodes, bet Kazim Richards isn't on 20 quid a week, or Murphy, Etuhu, etc; etc.

You do talk some ****.

Robinson has been crap all season, responsible for at least three home defeats, and lets not even talk about Givet, they don't want to play for anyone outside the PL but they want PL wages.

Clear them out and start again.

Or in your fevered imagination do you think that at the end of last season if any PL club had come in for them they would have stayed at Ewood?

There is no sentiment and scant loyalty in football anymore, especially from the players.
Sorry, but I thought it was common knowledge that if you pay second rate wages you will attract second rate players.
If you had read my post correctly and understood it instead of seeing red, you will have noticed that the practice of off loading the top earners has been going on for two years now.
Which direction have we been heading ?
So as soon as the going got tough; i.e Allardyce engineered his own sacking and walked away with a big fat cheque;

Nelsen didn't get a convenient injury, Samba didn't refuse to play for us, Givet didn't refuse to play for us because he didn't get the £75k he paid his "Tailor" for helping him get his transfer back?

Leaving us with an unfit Dann and a raw 18 year old up against the van Persie's and Rooney's of this world?

You and a few others need to stop believing the tripe spoon fed to you by BRAG and think what you are saying.

Do you not for one minute think that any of these players walked away from Ewood with an empty wallet? They all walked away with more money than you or I will ever see in our lifetime.

Because that's how contracts work.

Why didn't Robinson go to West Ham? Because he wanted his contract paid up before he would leave, that's why.

Does that not tell you anything?
I don't believe the tripe fed by BRAG as I don't read anything they have to say. I'm not interested.
I have my own mind and I don't believe all of those players you mention wanted out just because we were relegated.
Nelsen is a fighter and I don't believe for one minute that he would walk away from a fight. Jones was sold, Kalinic was sold Emmerton Freed, Yes freed, why. Salgado forced out along with others.
You have your opinion which you are entitled to, but I won't be convinced that Venkys were not happy to get the top earners off the books to replace them with cheap second raters, Rhodes excepted.
Hence our position now.
We were still in the PL with more than half a season to go when Nelsen got "injured" almost to the second that Allardyce left, I don't think he played for us again but was fit enough to play 90 minutes for Spurs two days after he signed for them.

We were still in the PL with more than half a season, blah, blah regarding Samba and Givet.

I agree that Salgado was treated badly, but he is the only one who has spoken up about it. The rest have kept very quiet, I wonder why?

The rest, all Allardyce men got what they wanted, away from the club with a very healthy bank balance, well Givet hasn't yet but he's still working on it.

Jones wasn't ours, he was on loan, there was never any chance of him signing full time, that was clear from the onset.

Rhodes or Kalinic? Who would you prefer?
OK , it was all the players fault that we were relegated, not Venkys.
I can see that you are one of those who are always right and will argue all night, I won't waste my time.
By the way, Jones WAS ours.
He went to Manchester United for £17, 000, 000 didn't he? or perhaps I'm wrong about that.
Sorry I thought you meant the real Jones, midfielder from Germany, a class player that some no-mark called Kean brought in, someone we would give our eye teeth to have in our side right now, not some spotty kid who is struggling to oust...erm...Ferdina


nd, from the red scum side.

I was obviously taking about a proven player, not a fec.
And yes, who were actually on the pitch when the final whistle blew last season, Venky's or the professional footballers?

Who could have made the difference on the pitch, Venky's or the professional footballers?

At the end of the day Venky's have been total clowns, but they are not highly paid professional footballers.

End of game.
It doesn't matter about the politics surrounding the departure of the top / highly paid players or whether they wanted to play for the club or not. Venkys got good money for most of them.
That still doesn't alter the fact that they were never replaced like for like, Venkeys preferring to replace them with cheaper, inferior players. Hence our position now. That was my whole point before you jumped in on my post whilst I was replying to someone else.

I agree with you about the second rate players scenario but politics in any sporting organisation, at any level, plays a massive role, and I speak from bitter experience.

Don't get me wrong, Venky's remain totally at fault for our decline, they were either ripped off by whoever or were totally unprepared for what could happen.

But owners, management, players and fans all have a role to play.

Key members of any team, role models if you like, who are unhappy create a negative atmosphere which becomes all permeating, everyone is affected, and the only way to go is get rid.

OK we think Venky's got "good money" for those that left, but all the contracts have clauses and sub clauses, usually to the players advantage, so I suspect that Venky's will have done well to break even on the deals.

As for second rate players, if you were a player similar in stature, or possibly better than say, Chris Samba, looking at Rovers from the outside, a club with crackpot owners, an inexperienced manager who is despised by the majority of fans, fans baying for blood every game, a team loosing confidence, possibly heading for relegation.......

Would you sign for them?

We were fortunate to win on Saturday although we did have a lot of possession.

They had the best three chances in the game however luckily for us they missed them all.

Shot flashed over the bar first half.
Hit the post with the best move of the game first half
Just after half time headed the ball straight at Kean when it would have been easier to score. Could have been three to them quite easily.

Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target and non coming from our midfield. Excluding Mortens free kick.

CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile followed by Hanley which says something if he had to be at his best!!

Were under the cosh for 15 / 20 minutes beginning of the second half and took that long to recover from 3 of our players not coming onto the field in time for the resumption of the second half so goodness knows what had gone on in the half time break.

When they kicked off we had 8 players on the pitch. Murphy was beside himself.

Could have cost us.
I spotted a consistency error....

" Apart from Rhodes I cannot remember one player having a single shot on target" + "CKR was outstanding mind and man of the match by a mile"

So our second striker, who has a combined goal tally of 3 goals all season, didn't score again, didn't hit the target again, didn't create any assists, didn't create any chances whatsoever and to you he was OUTSTANDING MAN OF THE MATCH?!

Or do you base that on the fact that "he won the headers from the longballs"? The 90% of balls that come from our backline that are aimed at him. I counted 6 times thourghout 90 mins where CKR was bearing down on goal and decided to shoot. How many of those hit the target? Zero. I think the lad Goodwillie would be at least able to test the keeper once in 90 mins.
Where was you at the Brighton game then? Because I watched Goodwillie quite clearly from the Blackburn end only testing our own keeper, in the worst possible way!!

RTID
Nuno Gomez was the obvious option to close out a game with 5 mins remaining when the team are leading. Appy made a bad call there. Goodwillie is the kind of guy u'd like to see start or coming on at 2-0 or 3-0 up.

From 2015 the USA,EU and Japan will stop all economic aid to India as Indian Goverment say the $4.5 billion foreign eonomic aid is peanuts as India spends £70 Billion every year on welfare on it's poor people. The British government says India is a very rich country that spends billions on Defence,Space program must help it's poor people. I cannot defend Venkys for their mistakes about what promises they made to BRFC when they bought the Club.Brfc is a good club ,it's a historical club with the right sort of investments BRFC could be back in big times again.Venkys must invest heavily and allow Appleton more transfer funds to win the fans back.They must sack Shebby Singh he has no role here,he has no understanding of English Football clubs.Why not appoint Simon Garner or Alan Shearer as Club's advisor to win the fans back.Appleton is right Venky for time being must stay away from Ewood Park.I hope for BRFC a great club with great history the Venkys live up their promises.
I was brought up with the moto 'Be slow to promise, but quick to deliver' Venky's?
So, 450m in poverty and £70bn a year spent on getting them out of it....

That's £150 a head a year.

I appreciate workers don't get paid much in India and it is dirt cheap to live there but they must be starting at a pretty low point if they are considered to be in poverty under those circumstances. I don't see many of them joining your darlings the super rich anytime soon though.

The super rich will continue to get richer and the poor poorer. It is the way so called super economies work. Take the American dream; Over 99% of the US's wealth is in the hands of less than 1% of its population yet everybody believes they can make their millions despite remaining slaves to those who already have.

If you're happy continuing paying hommage to the super rich as though they represent the people of India then by all means carry on. I doubt they look at themselves in quite the same way.

It's all pretty irrelevant as far as this forum is concerned mind, but that hasn't stopped dear old Modan thus far (ad nauseum).

Cue list of zillionaires and economic forecasts for the next century.
As you know India is an emerging economy like China,Brazil,Russia.
India was a third world country with more than half the population were on abject poverty.India today is booming economy, India is the second fastest growing economy in the world.By 2025 India will become economic superpower and will have the third largest economy after USA and China.As you know India is the world's largest democracy.India is beacon of democracy to the world.India has always been a free market economy like USA and UK.In a free capitalist economy like India there are always going to be poor ,rich and super rich people.India has lifted some 300 million people out of poverty from 1980 to 2010.Because India has 1.2 Billion people the task of eradicating poverty will take India another 20 years if India's economy by 2030 forecast to be the the third largest in the world.Even Chairman Mao could not eradicate poverty in China by his Communist state ownership and collective system.The capitalist free market economies has been the strongest economies in the WESTERN COUNTRIES the communist models has failed in Russia and China .China and Russia now have become FREE MARKET ECONOMIES to lift millions of their poor people out of poverty.
The rich as you called them they are the wealth creator .They invest into the economy to and create jobs for the poor people.Venkys employs more than 250,000 people in India.Thats 250,000 people on payrolls otherwise could have been jobless with no money.In India top salary earners get beetween £4,000 to £20.000 ,middle income earners get beetween £1,000 to £3,000 and the lowest would be around £350 to £800 per year.A roadsweeper would be the lowest paid,Policemen,call centre workers,skill men, would be middle income and Civil Servant,Bankers,Comp
any managers,Doctors are top earners.It is the booming economy of India that led to Indian Billionaires like Venkys to invest in Blackburn Rovers.

From 2015 the USA,EU and Japan will stop all economic aid to India as Indian Goverment say the $4.5 billion foreign eonomic aid is peanuts as India spends £70 Billion every year on welfare on it's poor people. The British government says India is a very rich country that spends billions on Defence,Space program must help it's poor people. I cannot defend Venkys for their mistakes about what promises they made to BRFC when they bought the Club.Brfc is a good club ,it's a historical club with the right sort of investments BRFC could be back in big times again.Venkys must invest heavily and allow Appleton more transfer funds to win the fans back.They must sack Shebby Singh he has no role here,he has no understanding of English Football clubs.Why not appoint Simon Garner or Alan Shearer as Club's advisor to win the fans back.Appleton is right Venky for time being must stay away from Ewood Park.I hope for BRFC a great club with great history the Venkys live up their promises.[/p][/quote]I was brought up with the moto 'Be slow to promise, but quick to deliver' Venky's?[/p][/quote]So, 450m in poverty and £70bn a year spent on getting them out of it.... That's £150 a head a year. I appreciate workers don't get paid much in India and it is dirt cheap to live there but they must be starting at a pretty low point if they are considered to be in poverty under those circumstances. I don't see many of them joining your darlings the super rich anytime soon though. The super rich will continue to get richer and the poor poorer. It is the way so called super economies work. Take the American dream; Over 99% of the US's wealth is in the hands of less than 1% of its population yet everybody believes they can make their millions despite remaining slaves to those who already have. If you're happy continuing paying hommage to the super rich as though they represent the people of India then by all means carry on. I doubt they look at themselves in quite the same way. It's all pretty irrelevant as far as this forum is concerned mind, but that hasn't stopped dear old Modan thus far (ad nauseum). Cue list of zillionaires and economic forecasts for the next century.[/p][/quote]As you know India is an emerging economy like China,Brazil,Russia.
