Cairney to hand Rovers a boost

BLACKBURN Rovers will be boosted by the return of Tom Cairney for Saturday’s trip to Championship basement boys Millwall.

The midfielder has missed the last six matches with an ankle injury sustained in the 1-0 win at Reading on February 22.

But Rovers boss Gary Bowyer confirmed after Tuesday’s 3-3 draw at Watford that Cairney will return to his squad for the Lions clash providing he comes through training today and tomorrow.

Bowyer, whose side are eight points behind the play-off places with nine games to play, is also hopeful winger Josh King will be fit after he missed out against the Hornets due to a back problem.

Bowyer said: “Tom will be back involved at the weekend as long as he goes okay Thursday and Friday.

“Josh King has had a bit of a back spasm so he missed out on Tuesday but we’re expecting him to come back into it.”

Captain Grant Hanley was an unused substitute against Watford after sitting out three matches with a hamstring injury.

And Bowyer said: “We’re disappointed not to be going to Millwall on the back of an impressive away win at Watford but we’ve got bodies coming back, competition is good, and we’ve got to finish as strong as we possibly can and see how far that takes us.”

With Lowe as a utility player in the main covering RB and perhaps a CH added (As he's perhaps not ready for Utd, maybe even ask them for Keane for a further seasons cover if he'd be happy to stay as one of three and accept not always playing) then you have to consider Bowyer's assembled quite a good squad. As long as they show hunger and desire (which seems to be coming) then with a bit of organisation and shared understanding of playing styles which will come from the remainder of this season then this has to be a good bet for next season.

The squad and the team will be oi much stronger with these three back (Hanley, King and Cairney) and even though not many Roverites expected much this season, I reckon that if we had managed to have these players fit and available all season, then we might have surprsed a lot of folks and been in a play-off spot now. But at least we can look forward to next season, which is something we haven`t been able to say for over three years now!

Agree.

FFP could be a potential problem but it looks to me as though GB is thinking well ahead to ensure that any sanctions that may be applied will have a minimal effect.

He has also brought in young players, given them a quick taster and farmed them out on loan to gain experience, the majority appear to be doing well.

It's starting to take shape at last.

Its going to take something amazing to make the playoffs from here but I'm content enough with the squad thats been put together for next season

The only issues are the contracts of Best / Campbell / Goodwillie / Etuhu

Theyre on a combined £100k a week (ish) and are nowhere near good enough. Its unlikely they accept a move elsewhere and take a massive paycut - no one is going to pay them what they earn here - and the deals are long term so just releasing them and paying them out is not an option

Need to find someway of getting them off the books or we really may have to face up to selling Rhodes / Hanley / Both when FFP kicks in (unless it gets overturned of course..)

FFP won't be overturned, it might be adjusted slightly to allow teams relegated from the PL and promoted from Division 1 a little more breathing space that's all.

Pretty certain we came to some agreement on contracts with some players, Murphy; etc, so I don't know why we can't just bite the bullet with the players you named and get rid of them at the end of this season, that way they won't be a noose around our necks the season after.

To be fair, we all know there will be problems come the end of the season with FFP, we've been reminded enough. If Rhodes and Hanley do go, not the best situation for us exactly, but just remember that we have players all over the pitch scoring for us now, this is what gets a team promoted. GB has proved that he can bring in good players on the cheap with bags of potential, and after this season, will start to gel better, know where each other are going to slot the ball through, know the right areas to loft a cross into.... As posted above, I look forward to next season, whether it be in the PL or championship! Our playoff hopes are virtually non-existent now, so what! Another season eh! I'm enjoying watching my team playing good football most weeks now, that makes me happy as a supporter.

You have to be honest, its looking pretty grim for you lot these days.

11th in the Championship, no chance of the play-off's, a very poor tactician and motivator in the dugout, a team of misfits and rejects cobbled together on the cheap, further cost cutting on the horizon, a third successive season in the Championship, impending Financial Fair Play punishment in the form of a transfer embargo coming into force in January of next season, the sale of all players of value including Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney, no money made available for replacements, paying off the contracts, of Best, Etuhu, Campbell, Goodwillie, etc.... it can mean only one thing.

An almighty struggle to retain your Championship status next season and the likelihood of a further relegation into League One to play at a level you can sustain financially whilst still being competitive.

A sad end to Blackburn Rovers.

But what does a transfer embargo achieve if Bowyer has already prepared ahead? The squad already looks good enough for a good push next season. If Blackburn had the luck of Burnleys injuries this season they'd walk it.

The transfer embargo prevents you morons from continuing to overspend, its as simple as that.

You're 11th in the Championship, on what planet is 11th place good enough for a promotion push? Only on planet Venky.

By that rationale Bournemouth are good enough a promotion push next season, so too are Watford, and possibly even Sheffield Wednesday might be in with a shout... never mind about the likes of Derby, QPR, Reading, Nottm Forest, Wigan etc, and the 3 premier league teams coming down from the top tier to play in the Championship next season with the benefit of the enhanced parachute payments of £60million... Wake up you muppet. You have no chance of competing with these teams.

So you sit in 11th place and you consider this prepared?

You're going to lose at the very least, Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney in the summer and not have the funds to replace them with equal quality, hence your squad will be much weaker as a result, hence the transfer embargo will be the very thing that prevents you from strengthening when all of your competitors are doing, hence you will struggle to remain in the Championship next season and as I predicted a long time ago you will have to drop down to League One before you are free of the transfer restriction.

It's not fantasy, its simple economics, you are in a whole heap of trouble and there is no way to buy yourselves out of it any more.

Luck with injuries? Contradicting yourself again mungo. You started the season with 35 or 36 squad members, that was plenty to cover even the worst injury crisis, you told us all as much yourself at the start of the season as you laughed at our small squad. So what happened? Why did you sell or loan out 19 players? Bad management perhaps?

You are simply VERY jealous and VERY bitter about our progress this season and your continued decline into obscurity causes you to make up nonsense about being good enough next season.... think about it Mungo, you said all this as you came down from the Premier League, remember all that cocky talk of breaking the points record next season after a short spell in the Championship? And then you failed so you move the goalposts to a return after two season, and once again you failed. So now we're talking a third season to climb out of the Championship BUT....

1. all your money has now gone,
2. you are a mid-table Championship side at best,
3. you have further cost cutting and a transfer embargo to contend with,
4. Everyone else around you next season will have stronger squads than you.

Get used to being a nobody. That's your future.

I apologise, there are obviously still one or two open wounds after your derby day defeat by Burnley FC at Ewood Park...

Either that or you're angry that we're almost 30 points ahead of you,

or perhaps its because you've missed out on the play-off's yet again and have another season of misery in the Championship to look forward to whist your superior neighbours are rubbing shoulders with the lies of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Must be miserable to be a no-dad.

The transfer embargo prevents you morons from continuing to overspend, its as simple as that.

You're 11th in the Championship, on what planet is 11th place good enough for a promotion push? Only on planet Venky.

By that rationale Bournemouth are good enough a promotion push next season, so too are Watford, and possibly even Sheffield Wednesday might be in with a shout... never mind about the likes of Derby, QPR, Reading, Nottm Forest, Wigan etc, and the 3 premier league teams coming down from the top tier to play in the Championship next season with the benefit of the enhanced parachute payments of £60million... Wake up you muppet. You have no chance of competing with these teams.

So you sit in 11th place and you consider this prepared?

You're going to lose at the very least, Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney in the summer and not have the funds to replace them with equal quality, hence your squad will be much weaker as a result, hence the transfer embargo will be the very thing that prevents you from strengthening when all of your competitors are doing, hence you will struggle to remain in the Championship next season and as I predicted a long time ago you will have to drop down to League One before you are free of the transfer restriction.

Get used to being a nobody. That's your future.
It doesn't look like overspending this season, just prudent squad assembly for the future. An embargo doesn't mean Rovers need to sell, they just wouldn't be able to buy. To become sustainable perhaps Best and Etuhu need to stop draining £2m a year each out of the club and get some self repect by moving on. Other than that, if Venkys are willing to put £5m in as they are allowed then from what i can make out it's game on for next season:

Next season income is:
Championship TV £3m
Gates (avg 13000 @ £15) £4.5m
Sponsorships say £3m
Last parachute payment £8m
Venkys (guilt money!) £5m
Total income = £23.5m

Next season outgoings
Wages £20m (29 players on an average £13k/week)
Running costs £3.5m

Basically, Venky's £5m injection will need to cover the wages of the poor past aquisitions by their own advisors (Best, Etuhu & Campbell).

Admittedly after next season, once the last parachute payment is gone then there will need to be some more restructuring, but not before.

Admittedly after next season, once the last parachute payment is gone then there will need to be some more restructuring, but not before.
You don't get £3million from TV rights in the Championship.

The £5million figure you mention can only be injected by the owners as equity, it does not give you more cash to spend. It allows you to post a maximum loss of £8m as opposed to £3m by further diluting your clubs value.

I doubt that you are bringing in anywhere near £3m in sponsorship money.

Therefore your total income is more likely to be in the region of £15m not £23m.

You lost £36.5m in the last financial year and most of the attempted savings since then have come by loaning out your players whilst still contributing a percentage of their salary. Those loaned out players will return to the club and put a further drain on your finances during the off-season forcing either sale at a loss or possibly the need to pay-off several contracts to rid yourself of certain others. For example, Etuhu is under contract until the end of the 2016 season at £35,000 a week. As such he alone is owed a further £4million+ in wages. I would say the same applies to Best for another season, and possibly Campbell will be another high earner. So your hoped for £20m wage bill is also complete nonsense.

As you say your parachute payments will be halved to £8m which will instantly require the sale of two or three players to compensate. There is no other way to survive at the level you now exist.

You simply do not grasp the severity of your financial situation and its obvious you will refuse to accept it until it slaps you down next season.

Why does it bother you so much what is happening at Ewood Park? You are in danger of spoiling your finest hour ! Have you become so embittered during the years of hurt, to have caused you permanent emotional damage?
Is it because they have been so superior to Burnley for so long that you have become mentally impaired and this has caused you to wildly over-react to your current situation, perhaps?

Other than that, if Venkys are willing to put £5m in as they are allowed then from what i can make out it's game on for next season:

Next season income is:
Championship TV £3m
Gates (avg 13000 @ £15) £4.5m
Sponsorships say £3m
Last parachute payment £8m
Venkys (guilt money!) £5m
Total income = £23.5m

Next season outgoings
Wages £20m (29 players on an average £13k/week)
Running costs £3.5m

Basically, Venky's £5m injection will need to cover the wages of the poor past aquisitions by their own advisors (Best, Etuhu & Campbell).

Admittedly after next season, once the last parachute payment is gone then there will need to be some more restructuring, but not before.
You don't get £3million from TV rights in the Championship.

The £5million figure you mention can only be injected by the owners as equity, it does not give you more cash to spend. It allows you to post a maximum loss of £8m as opposed to £3m by further diluting your clubs value.

I doubt that you are bringing in anywhere near £3m in sponsorship money.

Therefore your total income is more likely to be in the region of £15m not £23m.

You lost £36.5m in the last financial year and most of the attempted savings since then have come by loaning out your players whilst still contributing a percentage of their salary. Those loaned out players will return to the club and put a further drain on your finances during the off-season forcing either sale at a loss or possibly the need to pay-off several contracts to rid yourself of certain others. For example, Etuhu is under contract until the end of the 2016 season at £35,000 a week. As such he alone is owed a further £4million+ in wages. I would say the same applies to Best for another season, and possibly Campbell will be another high earner. So your hoped for £20m wage bill is also complete nonsense.

As you say your parachute payments will be halved to £8m which will instantly require the sale of two or three players to compensate. There is no other way to survive at the level you now exist.

You simply do not grasp the severity of your financial situation and its obvious you will refuse to accept it until it slaps you down next season.
You do get £3m TV money

Where did I say and Venky money was for anything other than balancing the books

I haven't mentioned any inclusion of an acceptable £3m loss

You have no understanding of any player contracts or sponsorships

You are therefore wasting your time making comments with no foundation in most likely your finest hour. What a nob jockey.

You really are totally obssessed with the Rovers aren't you?
Why does it bother you so much what is happening at Ewood Park? You are in danger of spoiling your finest hour ! Have you become so embittered during the years of hurt, to have caused you permanent emotional damage?
Is it because they have been so superior to Burnley for so long that you have become mentally impaired and this has caused you to wildly over-react to your current situation, perhaps?
Why not just enjoy your present situation and stop reverting to likkle-girly name-calling and cheap shots and try to behave a little more grown-up.
Or did your girlfriend/boyfriend

/wife/daughter (delete as appropriate) run off with a Rovers' fan in the distant past, perhaps?
"Why not just enjoy your present situation and stop reverting to likkle-girly name-calling and cheap shots and try to behave a little more grown-up."

Oh we are certainly enjoying it Mungo, and the icing on the cake is giving it to you morons after beating you on your own patch.

We took abuse off you lot for many a year, so get used to it coming back your way, because given the state your club is currently in you are in for a rough ride in the next couple of seasons.

Ha ha ha. The irony of this. YOU sir are a nobody. You sad, pathetic, no-life tramp.
You are obsessed with us. Look at the state of the essay you have just wrote whilst all Rovers fans are discussing is our strengths, weaknesses and where the future is going.

We are bitter and jealous? We haven't mentioned Burnley AT ALL in this thread. We have, in fact, congratulated you and Dyche numerous times on your success this season.

Get a f**king life.
I apologise, there are obviously still one or two open wounds after your derby day defeat by Burnley FC at Ewood Park...

Either that or you're angry that we're almost 30 points ahead of you,

or perhaps its because you've missed out on the play-off's yet again and have another season of misery in the Championship to look forward to whist your superior neighbours are rubbing shoulders with the lies of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Must be miserable to be a no-dad.
When you've won the Premier League, won the league cup, put together a 35 year unbeaten run against us, a couple spells playing across Europe and many more happy years at the highest level of English football you have only just matched what we have achieved in just two decades.

I can be pretty sure that if I was here 100 years from now you will still have achieved not even half of that. That is why nobody is the slightest bit interested in what you or any of your backward supporters have to say.

You're 11th in the Championship, on what planet is 11th place good enough for a promotion push? Only on planet Venky. By that rationale Bournemouth are good enough a promotion push next season, so too are Watford, and possibly even Sheffield Wednesday might be in with a shout... never mind about the likes of Derby, QPR, Reading, Nottm Forest, Wigan etc, and the 3 premier league teams coming down from the top tier to play in the Championship next season with the benefit of the enhanced parachute payments of £60million... Wake up you muppet. You have no chance of competing with these teams. So you sit in 11th place and you consider this prepared? You're going to lose at the very least, Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney in the summer and not have the funds to replace them with equal quality, hence your squad will be much weaker as a result, hence the transfer embargo will be the very thing that prevents you from strengthening when all of your competitors are doing, hence you will struggle to remain in the Championship next season and as I predicted a long time ago you will have to drop down to League One before you are free of the transfer restriction. It's not fantasy, its simple economics, you are in a whole heap of trouble and there is no way to buy yourselves out of it any more. Luck with injuries? Contradicting yourself again mungo. You started the season with 35 or 36 squad members, that was plenty to cover even the worst injury crisis, you told us all as much yourself at the start of the season as you laughed at our small squad. So what happened? Why did you sell or loan out 19 players? Bad management perhaps? You are simply VERY jealous and VERY bitter about our progress this season and your continued decline into obscurity causes you to make up nonsense about being good enough next season.... think about it Mungo, you said all this as you came down from the Premier League, remember all that cocky talk of breaking the points record next season after a short spell in the Championship? And then you failed so you move the goalposts to a return after two season, and once again you failed. So now we're talking a third season to climb out of the Championship BUT.... 1. all your money has now gone, 2. you are a mid-table Championship side at best, 3. you have further cost cutting and a transfer embargo to contend with, 4. Everyone else around you next season will have stronger squads than you. Get used to being a nobody. That's your future.[/p][/quote][quote][p][bold]TurfMoorTom[/bold] wrote: Get used to being a [bold]nobody.[/bold] That's your future.[/quote] Ha ha ha. The irony of this. YOU sir are a nobody. You sad, pathetic, no-life tramp. You are obsessed with us. Look at the state of the essay you have just wrote whilst all Rovers fans are discussing is our strengths, weaknesses and where the future is going. We are bitter and jealous? We haven't mentioned Burnley AT ALL in this thread. We have, in fact, congratulated you and Dyche numerous times on your success this season. Get a f**king life.[/p][/quote]I apologise, there are obviously still one or two open wounds after your derby day defeat by Burnley FC at Ewood Park... Either that or you're angry that we're almost 30 points ahead of you, or perhaps its because you've missed out on the play-off's yet again and have another season of misery in the Championship to look forward to whist your superior neighbours are rubbing shoulders with the lies of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool. Must be miserable to be a no-dad.[/p][/quote]When you've won the Premier League, won the league cup, put together a 35 year unbeaten run against us, a couple spells playing across Europe and many more happy years at the highest level of English football you have only just matched what we have achieved in just two decades. I can be pretty sure that if I was here 100 years from now you will still have achieved not even half of that. That is why nobody is the slightest bit interested in what you or any of your backward supporters have to say. JPainter90
