BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is refusing to rule out offering winger Liam Feeney a permanent deal.

The 27-year-old struggled to make an impact after signing for Rovers on loan from Championship rivals Millwall in March.

Feeney was restricted to just one start – the 1-1 home draw with champions Leicester – and five substitute appearances.

But he could yet get the chance to make an impression with Rovers next season.

Bowyer was impressed by Feeney’s application and performances in training.

And the Ewood boss admits he would have given the former Bournemouth winger more of a run had it not been for Craig Conway’s continued outstanding form and Josh King’s end-of-season resurgence.

Feeney will be a free agent once his contract with Millwall expires next month and Bowyer could be interested in signing him on a free transfer.

“Liam came to us when we needed some pace and he’s made one or two telling contributions,” said Bowyer.

MORE TOP STORIES:

“But unfortunately for Liam, Kingy came back quicker than what we first possibly thought and Craig Conway was playing ever so well so he found it difficult to get in ahead of them.

“But as a person he didn’t have a problem with that, he stuck at it and worked ever so hard in training.

“And we could see he possesses some quality, that’s for sure.

“So it is one where we’ll just have to see what happens with Liam in the summer.”

Bowyer’s main summer targets are expected to be defenders but Feeney’s pace – something which Rovers do not have in abundance – and his ability to play on both wings could make him an attractive and affordable proposition.

Bowyer is already busy putting his recruitment plans in place but it is unlikely any deals will be done until he has flown out to India to meet Rovers owners Venky’s.

At the planned meeting, which could take place next week, Bowyer expects to discover what his budget will be for next season and it is only then that he will know which players on his shortlist fall within his price range.

The Rovers boss signed 19 players, either permanently or on loan, last season as he completely overhauled his squad.

But the 42-year-old, who guided his side to within two points of the play-offs in his first full campaign in charge, does not intend to be anywhere near as busy in bringing in new players this summer.

Personally I would have said he was surplus to requirements and would have thought that we would be announcing our retained list and those being released before signing anyone else. Feeney may be a good guy but for the life of me I cannot believe he will improve the team. I do worry sometimes at decisions being made at Ewood.
We need one or two defender someone else who can play on the wings.

Only telling contribution I can remember was when he got booked within a minute of coming on the pitch as a sub. I think against Burnley. Can't agree with GB on this one I am afraid. Ship him out along with about 6 other midfield players.

I would be surprised if Feeney does sign. We have plenty of pace with King and Conway and with Marshall due to return not sure how Feeney fits in.
Defenders are what we need, I would go and buy Michael Keane. Quite solid at right back which is what we have lacked for some time and also a good centre half.

Don't do it. One or two telling contributions over the time he got isn't enough, particularly with Marshall on the mend. He never looked like he was playing for his future in any case. Even on a free, his salary can be better used elsewhere (ie right back/centre half - Keane fits the bill).

A strange one if it is the case, he's right wing but we already have Marshall and King who are going to be first and second choice for that roll without any doubt.

Feeney hasn't really impressed me, but Williamson didn't for a long time either, so I am simply not sure on this one, GB's more recent signings have been excellent and he is in the best position to judge.

It may simply be that as both Marshall and King are severely injury prone that GB is just making certain he has cover for any worse case scenario.

BTW, Kean was on the bench for Man U the other night, didn't get on but the alleged new manager likes young players and with Vidic going and Jones a permanent hospital case I suspect he is being given an indication as to where his future lies.

Despite the posts above I can see why GB MAY want to offer Feeney a contract.. He is cheap, he would be a good squad player & he is quick! If Feeney did sign he would know that King, Conway & Marshall would be ahead of him in the pecking order so Its all about having competition in every position.
As for summer transfers if we can get Keane on loan for a full season that would mark a tremendous bit of business as for others I would like to see John Brayford, Andy King & possibly Matt Derbyshire (as back up to Rhodes & Gestede)

He didn't look up to much but that could possibly be down to a lack of match fitness. Whilst another winger is not a necessity, your comments about King and Marshall are spot on. I think this will come down to whether or not another team can guarantee him first team football every week.

Good point.

Marshall was also slagged off when he first arrived. Maybe with a good pre-season and a run of games Feeney may prove a decent squad player.

To be fair to Bowyer, he usually gets it right with the transfers. If he wants to sign him then so be it.

A Bolton fan at work says that he was good for them when he was on loan at their place.

Still waiting for Burnley to bid for Bale. Maybe they're waiting until after the Champions League final has taken place? I wonder if they'll do a straight swap for Junior Stanislas?

At no point in this article does it say that Bowyer will be doing everything he can to sign Feeney on a free.

It simply means out of respect to Feeney, that Bowyer is keeping the 'possibility' of him returning to Blackburn. I very much doubt this will happen. What with Josh Morris and Judge coming back to the squad from loans elsewhere.

For me the priority this summer is getting rid of high earners who are not making a contribution to the club at all, a couple additions in areas we are weak will make for an exciting new campaign.

I can also remember a few people despairing when Bowyer signed Cairney, Spurr, Evans, Conway, Marshall, Taylor and Kilgallon, either because they were surplus to requirements at other clubs or weren't deemed good enough for this division. Granted, Bowyer made a few bad signings to start with, but he more than made up for that by building a decent team with which to build on next season. Also, the players he actually spent money on - Cairney, Evans, Marshall, Conway and Gestede - should be first team regulars next season.

There's obviously a lot more work to be done over the summer but the foundations are there.

It's a disgrace that the manager has some words of praise for someone he works with every day? And probably won't sign but is trying to give a confidence boost. I'd say it's more of a disgrace that you think we were actually close to signing beckham!

I think Morris and Judge will both be off again in the summer. Morris was fantastic at Fleetwood but he's been playing in central midfield, a position he's unlikely to displace Cairney or Evans from. I think he'll go on loan to a League One club next season, back to Fleetwood if they get promoted. As for Judge, despite Bowyer expecting back for pre-season, I wouldn't be surprised to see him return to Brentford. They want a permanent deal, Judge wants first-team football, Bowyer can't guarantee it. Another loan deal might be struck as it suits all parties.

I think the only high earners on our books now are Robinson, Best, Rhodes and Etuhu. Campbell is probably on more than the likes of Hanley and Lowe, but he's not in the £25k+ bracket. If we can't find a buyer for Best the club will probably make him available for free, just to get him off the pay-roll. Robinson and Rhodes are key players so that only leaves Etuhu to get rid of, but how?

If Campbell is found guilty of spot-fixing he'll probably have hIs contract terminated, whilst there is no shortage of suitors for Goodwillie. Slew and Marrow will either be released or loaned out, whilst Dunn would only be on a pay-as-you-play deal, should the club decide to offer him a new one. As for Rochina, I really want to see him succeed at Rovers but I don't think he's happy sitting on the bench, and it's of no benefit to the club having him sat there either.

New players vary rarely slip straight in and play well from their first game, they normally don't understand the set up, the style of play or the styles of the other players in the team, it takes time to build that sort of rapport, as has been shown at Ewood this season.

Match fitness also plays a role, if I remember correctly all the players that GB has signed this season (apart from Spurr) were not regular first team players at their previous clubs, Marshall for one has said that his confidence was down when he first came here because he wasn't getting regular football.

Spurr, Marshall, Evans, Cairney, Gestede and Conway, etc; all jumped at the chance to come to Ewood and get a chance of first team football, these guys aren't on the massive salaries we used to dish out like confetti, so for GB, and Rovers to be able to attract players like this after all the problems of the last couple of seasons speaks volumes. for the progress we are making.

We still have deadwood to get rid of which is a virtually impossible situation to be in but we don't need to sign many players in the close season unless we loose any of our better players, a good right back and cover for centre half are a must to be honest, but the core of the team is in place now.

Bowyer has proved time and time again this season that he's a poor judge of player at this level as seen in the number of attempts it's taken him to get a few decent players in. What has he signed so far something like 20 or 21 players? What a farce. Considering the transfer fees, agent fees, loan fees, salary and bonuses paid out this season, to finish in 8th place is utterly diabolical. How you can say otherwise is simply a case of burying you head in the sand because you don't like what's happening. Feeney isn't fit to make the brews, as several of you have already stated, but Bowyer knows best eh?

You like others are missing the word "may" in the report.

"May" suggests he is thinking about it or simply testing the water, you want to try thinking yourself, especially as you want GB out.

As for the players you quoted, I haven't seen two of them play so I will reserve judgement, but don't every team, including those at the very top, have players on their books they have signed who don't fit in?

And what about the deadlegs he inherited, who signed them?

If you sacked a manager for that you would have to sack every manager in every league, pretty stupid really isn't it? If you actually think about it?

Even Ferguson once said; "It doesn't matter how much a player costs or whatever his reputation is, you never know how he is going to fit in or perform until you get him on the pitch".

GB's made some mistakes, don't all managers, but last season he rescued us from relegation and this season has taken us within a whisker of the playoffs. giving us the basis of a squad that should be challenging for promotion next season.

He's doing ok and I hope there's more to come.

Good point. Marshall was also slagged off when he first arrived. Maybe with a good pre-season and a run of games Feeney may prove a decent squad player.
New players vary rarely slip straight in and play well from their first game, they normally don't understand the set up, the style of play or the styles of the other players in the team, it takes time to build that sort of rapport, as has been shown at Ewood this season. Match fitness also plays a role, if I remember correctly all the players that GB has signed this season (apart from Spurr) were not regular first team players at their previous clubs, Marshall for one has said that his confidence was down when he first came here because he wasn't getting regular football. Spurr, Marshall, Evans, Cairney, Gestede and Conway, etc; all jumped at the chance to come to Ewood and get a chance of first team football, these guys aren't on the massive salaries we used to dish out like confetti, so for GB, and Rovers to be able to attract players like this after all the problems of the last couple of seasons speaks volumes. for the progress we are making. We still have deadwood to get rid of which is a virtually impossible situation to be in but we don't need to sign many players in the close season unless we loose any of our better players, a good right back and cover for centre half are a must to be honest, but the core of the team is in place now.
Hi owd nick

I would include a midfield playmaker to cover Evans / Cairney

Keeper Jason Steele - Boro

Lowe to Right Back

Keane also to civer across the back

What terrible "supporters" we have!
(I know every club is the same)
Fact is that Bowyer knows a hell of a lot more about football in general, his current squad and the character of this lad than any of us do.
Granted, I didnt think Feeney set the world alight, but he clearly has pace and a hunger to do well - Bowyers judgement will do for me.
The idiots that laugh at Marrow & Songo really cant see that in such as Spurr, Kilgallon, Cairney, Evans, Marshall, Conway, Cairney, Gestede that Bowyer has done some superb business for Blackburn Rovers?

"Feeney was restricted to just one start – the 1-1 home draw with champions Leicester – and five substitute appearances"

How can we judge him yet ?

The lad hasn't had a chance. He wasn't fit when he arrived so didn't impress but Bowyer's seen enough of him in training to suggest he could offer us something. Judging by the quality of his recent signings, that will do for me.
Why are we all suddenly expert football managers ???????????

Heaton (free), Jones (free), Arfield (Free), Barnes (£400k), Kightly (season long loan), Chris Baird (loan).

Heaton - best goalkeeper in the Championship with the most clean sheets.

Jones - rejected Blackburn Rovers in favour of taking a step up in quality and joining a proper football team challenging for promotion, alongside Dean Marney one of the best midfielders in the league this season.

Arfield - 9 goals from midfield says it all, skilful and hardworking, has been exceptional throughout the season.

Barnes - bargain signing who Brighton fans were disappointed to lose. Scored some important goals when filling in for injured Vokes/Ings.

Kightly - premier league quality, another hardworking team player who we will hopefully tie up on a permanent deal.

Baird - Northern Ireland international with 61 caps. Signed as cover at right back.

All players you wish your manager could and would have signed.

yes, but the opinions are absolute nonsense. Thats not my opinion, its fact.

I can find you 100 things wrong with Manchester City or Liverpool if you like, but its much more stimulating and rewarding to look at the good things they do and give them some credit, because they deserve it.
In the same way, Gary Bowyer has done a superb job at turning round our whole club, not just the team, yet you idiots feel that you have the right to pull all that good work to pieces - does it make you feel better?
If you put some work and talent into anything you would then perhaps understand what negative losers you are.
Sorry if that sounds strong, but I'm hoping you actually take some notice

Remind me who your manager signed oh thats right you wouldn't know your always here.
Heaton (free), Jones (free), Arfield (Free), Barnes (£400k), Kightly (season long loan), Chris Baird (loan).

Heaton - best goalkeeper in the Championship with the most clean sheets.

Jones - rejected Blackburn Rovers in favour of taking a step up in quality and joining a proper football team challenging for promotion, alongside Dean Marney one of the best midfielders in the league this season.

Arfield - 9 goals from midfield says it all, skilful and hardworking, has been exceptional throughout the season.

Barnes - bargain signing who Brighton fans were disappointed to lose. Scored some important goals when filling in for injured Vokes/Ings.

Kightly - premier league quality, another hardworking team player who we will hopefully tie up on a permanent deal.

Baird - Northern Ireland international with 61 caps. Signed as cover at right back.

All players you wish your manager could and would have signed.
funny that the only person i would take out of any of those is Heaton

The rest no
You mean for the England squad? Funny that they’re not all English !!! Seriously what would you know after a comment like that.

Pop pop pop fssst, fizzy pop league etc etc etc. No wonder you are getting it back with interest.
I recall talking to 2 'Football fans' who were watching Blackburn in the mid nineties, season ticket holders, and there to watch premiership football and for no other reason. They asked me why Blackburn were still singing about Burnley and what was their obsession with us. I simply explained that it is called rivalry and why we have such a great derby, which of course was absent at that time.
I am certain that they are no longer watching Blackburn along with so many of the other plastics that joined the premiership bandwagon.
If you don't get promoted within the next 2 seasons I am pretty certain you will be back to your original fan base of less than 10,000 before Willy Wonka took over with his golden ticket.
The real world beckons where everything doesn't taste quite as sweet as chocolate.

I think you're set up nicely for the Premier League.

With regards Dave Jones, I was mortified but not really surprised when he chose Burnley over Rovers. His class was obvious and his passing technique reminded me of Glenn Hoddle mixed with Ronald Koeman, so much so he made Tugay look average.

I can't see any players wanting to leave Burnley either because despite there being no loyalty in football whatsoever, those Burnley players are clearly loyal to the town, club and badge and wouldn't dream of moving - you can just tell with the look on their faces as they run out to that traditional stadium.
So what you might have wooden seats and thousands of empty plastic ones but the likes of Dyche, Trippier, Ings and thingy, who could earn 10,15 times what they're earning aren't interested in money and success - they only care about Burnley FC and it's hundreds of thousands of supporters.

Here's one for you Gary.
Danny Ings is proven at this level and will soon be available on a freebie when he runs his contract down.When asked about staying at Burnley,he gave absolutely no indication that he would stay,quite the opposite in fact.
Although not quite as prolific as Rhodes at league level,i'm sure he would compliment our front two nicely.
FREE transfer,even we can afford that.

Ha that's a good one, at least you are able to maintain a sense of humour amid the smouldering wreckage that was once Blackburn Rovers. Good for you.

Danny Ings however is a different class to anything you'd see down at Ewood, a Premier League player at a Premier League club. But you can dream can't you.

The concern for you lot, and I mean this sincerely, is that the more likely scenario would be Burnley putting an offer in for your man Rhodes.

Think about it.... we are without Sam Vokes until the end of the year if not early next year, we are in the market for at least one striker, we are unlikely to break the bank with a big name player with premier league experience given that Vokes will return from injury, and so logically the next step is to look at the goal scoring talent that exists in the Championship.

I'd personally prefer us to have a look at McCormack, but I wouldn't be surprised if Rhodes was mentioned in the not too distant future as a possible stop-gap until Vokes returns.

There is also the fact that Blackburn Rovers desperately need to offload the higher earners, and of course Premier League football would be too good for Rhodes to turn down given that he'll never see it where he is now. An offer in the £4million bracket would possibly do the trick with FFP breathing down your necks, either that or a season long loan might probably suit both parties, I'm sure we'd be gracious enough to throw you a reasonable fee to help keep the wolf from the door, for a while at least.

Think about it.

That's the conundrum Burnley face.
They can't even compete with Championship wages unless they raise their own.Do they raise their wage limit,get some decent players in and have a go at staying up but risk facing FFP when the inevitable happens, or do they hope that Scott Arfield can give Yaya a run for his money.

I think you could be right about Rhodes.

What with the massive wages that Burnley are renowned for paying and the chance to play alongside the midfield genius of Dave Jones again would certainly turn his head.
I've also heard the players bonus will be a discount card from Oddies Bakery if they manage to finish in the top 1 of the Prem.

Remind me who your manager signed oh thats right you wouldn't know your always here.
Heaton (free), Jones (free), Arfield (Free), Barnes (£400k), Kightly (season long loan), Chris Baird (loan).

Heaton - best goalkeeper in the Championship with the most clean sheets.

Jones - rejected Blackburn Rovers in favour of taking a step up in quality and joining a proper football team challenging for promotion, alongside Dean Marney one of the best midfielders in the league this season.

Arfield - 9 goals from midfield says it all, skilful and hardworking, has been exceptional throughout the season.

Barnes - bargain signing who Brighton fans were disappointed to lose. Scored some important goals when filling in for injured Vokes/Ings.

Kightly - premier league quality, another hardworking team player who we will hopefully tie up on a permanent deal.

Baird - Northern Ireland international with 61 caps. Signed as cover at right back.

All players you wish your manager could and would have signed.
I think you're set up nicely for the Premier League.

With regards Dave Jones, I was mortified but not really surprised when he chose Burnley over Rovers. His class was obvious and his passing technique reminded me of Glenn Hoddle mixed with Ronald Koeman, so much so he made Tugay look average.

I can't see any players wanting to leave Burnley either because despite there being no loyalty in football whatsoever, those Burnley players are clearly loyal to the town, club and badge and wouldn't dream of moving - you can just tell with the look on their faces as they run out to that traditional stadium.
So what you might have wooden seats and thousands of empty plastic ones but the likes of Dyche, Trippier, Ings and thingy, who could earn 10,15 times what they're earning aren't interested in money and success - they only care about Burnley FC and it's hundreds of thousands of supporters.
Isn't irony wonderful.....LOL.

LOVE CLARETS.x[/p][/quote]Remind me who your manager signed oh thats right you wouldn't know your always here.[/p][/quote]Heaton (free), Jones (free), Arfield (Free), Barnes (£400k), Kightly (season long loan), Chris Baird (loan). Heaton - best goalkeeper in the Championship with the most clean sheets. Jones - rejected Blackburn Rovers in favour of taking a step up in quality and joining a proper football team challenging for promotion, alongside Dean Marney one of the best midfielders in the league this season. Arfield - 9 goals from midfield says it all, skilful and hardworking, has been exceptional throughout the season. Barnes - bargain signing who Brighton fans were disappointed to lose. Scored some important goals when filling in for injured Vokes/Ings. Kightly - premier league quality, another hardworking team player who we will hopefully tie up on a permanent deal. Baird - Northern Ireland international with 61 caps. Signed as cover at right back. All players you wish your manager could and would have signed.[/p][/quote]I think you're set up nicely for the Premier League. With regards Dave Jones, I was mortified but not really surprised when he chose Burnley over Rovers. His class was obvious and his passing technique reminded me of Glenn Hoddle mixed with Ronald Koeman, so much so he made Tugay look average. I can't see any players wanting to leave Burnley either because despite there being no loyalty in football whatsoever, those Burnley players are clearly loyal to the town, club and badge and wouldn't dream of moving - you can just tell with the look on their faces as they run out to that traditional stadium. So what you might have wooden seats and thousands of empty plastic ones but the likes of Dyche, Trippier, Ings and thingy, who could earn 10,15 times what they're earning aren't interested in money and success - they only care about Burnley FC and it's hundreds of thousands of supporters.[/p][/quote]Isn't irony wonderful.....LOL. owd nick

You sad Burnley ****! What sort of IDIOT creates a username, that implies he supports his rivals? Talk about obsessed. Only a complete knobber would do such a thing.

Danny Ings is proven at this level and will soon be available on a freebie when he runs his contract down.When asked about staying at Burnley,he gave absolutely no indication that he would stay,quite the opposite in fact.
Although not quite as prolific as Rhodes at league level,i'm sure he would compliment our front two nicely.
FREE transfer,even we can afford that.
Ha that's a good one, at least you are able to maintain a sense of humour amid the smouldering wreckage that was once Blackburn Rovers. Good for you.

Danny Ings however is a different class to anything you'd see down at Ewood, a Premier League player at a Premier League club. But you can dream can't you.

The concern for you lot, and I mean this sincerely, is that the more likely scenario would be Burnley putting an offer in for your man Rhodes.

Think about it.... we are without Sam Vokes until the end of the year if not early next year, we are in the market for at least one striker, we are unlikely to break the bank with a big name player with premier league experience given that Vokes will return from injury, and so logically the next step is to look at the goal scoring talent that exists in the Championship.

I'd personally prefer us to have a look at McCormack, but I wouldn't be surprised if Rhodes was mentioned in the not too distant future as a possible stop-gap until Vokes returns.

There is also the fact that Blackburn Rovers desperately need to offload the higher earners, and of course Premier League football would be too good for Rhodes to turn down given that he'll never see it where he is now. An offer in the £4million bracket would possibly do the trick with FFP breathing down your necks, either that or a season long loan might probably suit both parties, I'm sure we'd be gracious enough to throw you a reasonable fee to help keep the wolf from the door, for a while at least.

Think about it.
I think you could be right about Rhodes.

What with the massive wages that Burnley are renowned for paying and the chance to play alongside the midfield genius of Dave Jones again would certainly turn his head.
I've also heard the players bonus will be a discount card from Oddies Bakery if they manage to finish in the top 1 of the Prem.

There's nothing to think about.....
Might be funny if you lot weren't £60million in debt and us on the receiving end of £120million... think about it.

Next season we are in the Premier League, you're not.

Next season we will have a full house at every home game, your attendances are dropping at an alarming rate.

We have zero debt, you have a net debt of £60million and rising.

We have more money than we've ever had, you have nothing to spend.

We have a sensible board of directors who will not tie us into contracts without the appropriate relegation clauses, unlike some clubs.

You are run by a bunch of clowns who are getting twitchy about making their exit and want to recoup as much cash as possible.

You have to sell due to FFP

Nothing to think about indeed.

You tell 'em Bazzer, how dare people come on to the comments section of articles about their football team and start expressing their opinions, especially about who should play for the team, it's a bloody outrage. Don't these people realise that comments should be restricted to fantasising about how things used to be. Supporters sharing their own opinions ? good grief ! it would never have happened when Big Sam was running the club !
I would like to see you telling Big Sam you know more than him. Or Alex Ferguson. Or Louis Van Gaal. Or Graeme Souness. Or Tony Pulis. Or Mick McCarthy. Or Mark Hughes. Remind me, which outfit have you led to glory? And I don't mean on a computer........SUPP

ORT YOUR TEAM!!!
That's quite a poor response Bazzer, I really expected better, and there is no need to shout sunshine, my support for the team remains solid as ever.

Personally I'd love to sit down with Sam, if you ever spent time with footballers and managers you would understand they too all have their own opinions and enjoy discussing the game, that's what makes it great.

Only the weak-willed and feeble-minded want to suppress free thinking or need someone to tell them what to think, the ability to form an opinion and debate it rationally, is a sign of intellect.

While there are still a few on here who are capable of debate I will engage them as I see fit, but please don't feel threatened by this, it's not compulsory, if you are not up to it we will understand. :-)

An offer in the £4million bracket would possibly do the trick with FFP breathing down your necks, either that or a season long loan might probably suit both parties, I'm sure we'd be gracious enough to throw you a reasonable fee to help keep the wolf from the door, for a while at least. Think about it.[/p][/quote]I think you could be right about Rhodes. What with the massive wages that Burnley are renowned for paying and the chance to play alongside the midfield genius of Dave Jones again would certainly turn his head. I've also heard the players bonus will be a discount card from Oddies Bakery if they manage to finish in the top 1 of the Prem. There's nothing to think about.....[/p][/quote]Might be funny if you lot weren't £60million in debt and us on the receiving end of £120million... think about it. Next season we are in the Premier League, you're not. Next season we will have a full house at every home game, your attendances are dropping at an alarming rate. We have zero debt, you have a net debt of £60million and rising. We have more money than we've ever had, you have nothing to spend. We have a sensible board of directors who will not tie us into contracts without the appropriate relegation clauses, unlike some clubs. You are run by a bunch of clowns who are getting twitchy about making their exit and want to recoup as much cash as possible. You have to sell due to FFP Nothing to think about indeed.[/p][/quote]Next season I'll be at the games. Next season you'll be sat at home posting on here.[/p][/quote]Next season I'll be watching Premier League football at Turf Moor. Next season you'll be watching bankrupt Blackburn Rovers getting turned over at home by Brentford. FFP is here and it's not taking any prisoners, you clowns are now officially Donald Ducked!

4-3 against Wigan at home what does that tell you GB? Yes your correct we can score goals and let them in so what positions should we be looking at now? Yes defensive midfield, right back and centre back please.

The psychopath is back on before 8.30 again. I wonder if he's taken his medication yet.

Am I the only one who thinks he could be useful? If he does sign we'll have 4 wingers, which is what is needed to keep cainey in the centre? Marshall, Conway, king, feeney. In that order creates good completion. Also maybe Alan judge coming back? We still need back up players. Picture this, we have Cardiff at home sat, Southend away in the cup Tuesday and reading away the following Saturday. Wouldn't feeney be perfect for that scenario?
