St Johnstone pull out of race to sign Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie on loan

First published in Football Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

ST Johnstone have pulled out of the race to sign Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie on loan.

Saints boss Tommy Wright said: “That’s dead in the water for us. We won’t be able to match what Blackburn are looking for in terms of doing a deal.”

Oldham Athletic could yet move for Goodwillie once their sale of Adam Rooney to Aberdeen goes through.

I feel sorry for the kid, none of this is his fault, God knows what salary he is on but Rovers are desperate to get him off their books but no-one will take him, can't blame him for hanging on to the end of his contract though.

Fair point Nick but if he was really ambitious and confident enough in his abilitiy, he would take a drop in wages to find a club that could kickstart his career.

Incredible when you think he was signed when we were a Premier League club and now its a race between St Johnstone and Oldham Athletic to sign him. More great work from the failure Kean.

Even the great unwashed of Dumpburn can manage to dip into their Giro when you only charge £5 for a family season ticket.

You may have a fractionally higher home attendance I don't know but revenue from ticket sales will be far greater at Bly.

That's why you are going to get spanked by FFP and we are not.


Oh sorry I forgot. FFP rules only apply to every other club and nor Wovers don't they?

it looks like you are another burnley fan who cant quite grasp the f f p rule
if lets say you make a loss of £ 9 million and the ffp rules say you can not exceed a loss of more than £3 million then the people who run the club have to find £6 million by investing more equity in the club
the financial fair play rules do not apply to how much debt a football club is in
only to how much a club loses over a season not how much a club owes to a third party be that a bank or a wealthy backer
the debt of a football club has nothing to do with the football league

If you hadn't such a lucky start your gates would be about 8,000. The last time Rovers where in your position....remember the season we gave you a couple of **** good thrashings..our average gate was 20,700.

Even the great unwashed of Dumpburn can manage to dip into their Giro when you only charge £5 for a family season ticket.

You may have a fractionally higher home attendance I don't know but revenue from ticket sales will be far greater at Bly.

That's why you are going to get spanked by FFP and we are not.


Oh sorry I forgot. FFP rules only apply to every other club and nor Wovers don't they?
35 years !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


!!!!
it looks like you are another burnley fan who cant quite grasp the f f p rule
if lets say you make a loss of £ 9 million and the ffp rules say you can not exceed a loss of more than £3 million then the people who run the club have to find £6 million by investing more equity in the club
the financial fair play rules do not apply to how much debt a football club is in
only to how much a club loses over a season not how much a club owes to a third party be that a bank or a wealthy backer
the debt of a football club has nothing to do with the football league
You haven't grasped this at all have you? Let me clear it up for you.

Your club has just lost £36.5million in the last financial year. You have since had your parachute payments halved and so in the current financial year you will incur an additional £8million deficit.

The MAXIMUM permitted loss in 2013/14 is £8million. The club owner is required to inject equity to cover any loss above £3million. Any overspend is monitored against a clubs ANNUAL accounts.

FFP has been introduced to PREVENT exactly what has kept your tin-pot club going for the last 20 years - an unfair financial advantage. You can no longer buy your way out of trouble.

Your reported loss equates to £3,041,666 every month. Your projected loss for the current financial year is therefore likely to be in the region of £45million. Let's say the current reduction in squad size and loan out of players makes a weekly salary saving of £30,000 (or £1.56million per year), let's also assume that Venky's have been working away in the background (LOL) to secure additional sponsorship of £2-3 million (doubtful). This still leaves you looking at a loss of over £40 million. This is then loaded onto the club as debt, some of which is a loan from the owners the rest is a bank loan. All of which has to be accounted for at some point in the future. It also means you once again fail to comply with the rules of FFP which, as you clearly haven't grasped, are enforced year on year.

You are now subject to a transfer embargo next season as punishment for non-compliance, and as you don't seem too bright, that means your club is prevented from buying players or loaning players.

Your club is therefore forced to comply with the rules to prevent further punishment which may include future points deductions, as per the Italian league.

Your club attendances are dire and the lack of commercial revenue will put a further strain on an already critical financial situation. The only result is for assets to be sold or the club to be placed into administration should the Venky's choose to withdraw their support.

You are now completely dependent upon Venky's keeping you afloat. Should they decide to cut their horrific losses you will slide through the divisions faster than Portsmouth.

SPAZ58, keep on living in the past no dad, thats where some of your best memories are, just don't clutch your chest and drop to your knees when you realise that it's no longer 1995 and your first season as a Trampburn fan.

And it's funny how this "lucky start" to the season is still going with 20 games left. It's probably just a coincidence that Burnley are 14 points ahead of Laughing stock no dad FC, in 3rd place 1 point off an automatic promotion spot.

Your jealousy and bitterness is as equally embarrassing as the "once proud" clueless classless team you follow.

Whats all this SPAZ58 about. I come on here for a bit of banter and I have had a good few laughs with the Burnley fans on here, I never insult anyone personally. Most of it is good natured fun. It will always go on between our sets of fans and I guess a lot of us have friends or family who support our biggest rivals. Perhaps I was wrong about Burnleys lucky start, you have done well as I have said here on other occasions, but banter is banter and you come back with what you have got. By the way I first went on Ewood in 1962 and I used to have both parents!

Let me clear it up for you. Your club has just lost £36.5million in the last financial year.

The club owner is required to inject equity to cover any loss above £3million. Any overspend is monitored against a clubs ANNUAL accounts.

Your reported loss equates to £3,041,666 every month. Your projected loss for the current financial year is therefore likely to be in the region of £45million. Let's say the current reduction in squad size and loan out of players makes a weekly salary saving of £30,000 (or £1.56million per year), let's also assume that Venky's have been working away in the background (LOL) to secure additional sponsorship of £2-3 million (doubtful). This still leaves you looking at a loss of over £40 million. This is then loaded onto the club as debt, some of which is a loan from the owners the rest is a bank loan. All of which has to be accounted for at some point in the future. It also means you once again fail to comply with the rules of FFP which, as you clearly haven't grasped, are enforced year on year. You are now subject to a transfer embargo next season as punishment for non-compliance, and as you don't seem too bright, that means your club is prevented from buying players or loaning players. Your club is therefore forced to comply with the rules to prevent further punishment which may include future points deductions, as per the Italian league. Your club attendances are dire and the lack of commercial revenue will put a further strain on an already critical financial situation. The only result is for assets to be sold or the club to be placed into administration should the Venky's choose to withdraw their support. You are now completely dependent upon Venky's keeping you afloat. Should they decide to cut their horrific losses you will slide through the divisions faster than Portsmouth.[/p][/quote]you really do a allot of research into a club you don't like.

!!!!
it looks like you are another burnley fan who cant quite grasp the f f p rule
if lets say you make a loss of £ 9 million and the ffp rules say you can not exceed a loss of more than £3 million then the people who run the club have to find £6 million by investing more equity in the club
the financial fair play rules do not apply to how much debt a football club is in
only to how much a club loses over a season not how much a club owes to a third party be that a bank or a wealthy backer
the debt of a football club has nothing to do with the football league
You haven't grasped this at all have you? Let me clear it up for you.

Your club has just lost £36.5million in the last financial year. You have since had your parachute payments halved and so in the current financial year you will incur an additional £8million deficit.
