Rovers boss Gary Bowyer heads to India for Venky’s budget meeting

Lancashire Telegraph: Rovers boss heads to India for Venky’s budget meeting Rovers boss heads to India for Venky’s budget meeting

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is ready to meet Venky’s and discover his budget for next season.

Bowyer is expected to fly out to India in the next two days for talks with Rovers’ Pune-based owners.

And it is only after that meeting has taken place that Bowyer will be able to put his summer transfer strategy into action.

But the Ewood chief has already made it clear Rovers must strive to improve a squad which finished two points and two places outside the Championship play-off positions last season.

“We can’t stand still,” said Bowyer, who has been busy identifying potential targets. “We’ve got to add and improve in certain areas.

“We need to challenge the existing squad in order to push them further and improve them but I wouldn’t expect anywhere near the amount of players we brought in last summer.”

MORE TOP STORIES:

Bowyer made 12 signings – 10 permanent and two on loan – last summer.
But this time around it is unlikely he will make many more than four signings – with a right back a priority – provided his squad remains intact.

Bowyer, after guiding revived Rovers to within touching distance of the top six in his first full season in charge, said he had been given no indication by Venky’s that he will have to sell any of his stars – such as top scorer Jordan Rhodes – this summer.

But with the club’s Premier League parachute payments being halved and Financial Fair Play coming into force in January, Bowyer already knows he must continue to move on the players who are not in his plans.

“We have to reduce the wage bill,” said Bowyer, who believes it will take another two summer transfer windows to get Rovers’ squad to where he sees fit.

“Financial Fair Play is being talked about a lot and that is something we have to take into consideration.

“We have players out on loan at the moment who might generate a bit of interest.

“We might see one or two of them depart but if not we have to deal with that and manage that.”

Also on the agenda in India will be the futures of David Dunn and Markus Olsson. The pair are the only senior players Bowyer has out of contract this summer.

The Rovers boss will be accompanied on the planned trip to Pune by Rovers’ director of communications Alan Myers.

We have players out on loan who might generate a bit of interest.

Like DJ Gamble for example who generated that much interest that Millwall sent him back early. Or perhaps Leon Best, are Sheffield Wednesday going to match his astronomical wages? Highly unlikely. So there's 2 that you're stuck with until their contracts are up (or one of them goes to jail). And what about Judge? GB says he wants to reduce the wage bill and here you have a player who wants to leave and go back to Brentford on a permanent basis but master tactician Gary wants him back in the squad. It doesn't make sense.

Venkys will without doubt be telling Bowyer to wield the axe, starting with Rhodes and "Mr Blackburn " David "sponsored by Hollands pies" Dunn. And then sell sell sell the rest of the dead wood that aren't tied to ridiculously well paid contracts.

And if Bowyer doesn't tow the party line he can expect to be slapped around the room senseless by Bilaji "the enforcer" Rao.

I'd be filling my pants right now if I were you Gary.

But then what happens when you're mid-table after six games? After ten games? At the halfway point? Will you still be backing Bowyer when the transfer embargo prevents him from buying in January and the gap between you and the play-off's is slowly increasing? What happens then? Do you sack him and bring in a new manager when it's too late for him to bring in new players due to the transfer ban? How long would it then take for the new manager to get the best out of a squad of misfits and rejects such as yours? Should you not get off to a flyer I see only further turmoil ahead.

I've not been overly impressed by Olsson since he arrived so I wouldn't offer him a new contract. Kilgallon and Henley can both cover at left-back, as well as Morris, should Bowyer decide to keep him. I'd offer Dunn a pay-as-you-play contract because he's still a game changer, and his experience can only benefit some of the younger players.

Best did enough on loan to attract a few clubs. If made available for free, it'd allow a club to use money they save on a transfer fee to help offset his wages. Goodwillie should be easy to shift, there was interest in him from a few clubs north of the border, as well as a few Championship clubs. If Campbell's found guilty of spot-fixing then we should be able to terminate his contract. If he's innocent then we need to try and get him out on loan, at the very least.

I'd like Rochina to stay but not starting every week unsettles him so don't be surprised to see him return to Spain in the summer. I think Bowyer has told Judge to be back on the first day as until he knows his budget, who he has sell/release, or whether Dunn will be offered a new contract, he's not sure if he'll be too light in midfield.

As for Etuhu, well... Isn't Steve Kean employed by some rich Crown Prince in Brunei?

I still think there are plenty of twists and turns yet vis FFP; a large number of clubs are threatening a legal challenge and one thing that would do would delay its inception. I think GB will be given a further chance but Rovers do need to hit the ground running come August. We need consistency from the off and to maintain the momentum of the last couple of months. Super Clarets quite simply you are an idiot. When you look at the major overhaul undertaken at Rovers in the last 12 months its nothing short of incredible that we were only 2 points off a play off place. Everyone who knows anything about football realises a settled squad that has played together for some time is one of the keys to success - and you had that this season and built on the year before. If you are going to post on here at least stop churning out the same old drivel. Either that or clear off. I'm all for sensible debate but not inane ramblings!

"Manchester City have been given more time to negotiate what is known as a ‘settlement’ with the CFCB’s investigatory chamber after failing to do so at the end of last week.

However the parties are so far apart that City are in danger of being the only one of nine clubs facing punishment who choose to fight on beyond Friday’s deadline and take their chances with the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber.

That chamber would assess afresh whether the club failed to comply with FFP rules in their 2011-13 accounts and, if so, would likely impose an even sterner penalty."

The implication for minnows such as Blackburn Rovers could be disastrous. Should City agree a settlement then it will be seen as final acceptance of the rules and FFP rightfully takes its foothold in the game, however should City reject the sanctions and the CFCB rule that they failed to comply, they will then impose an even harsher punishment such as a ban from European competition or an increased fine, which would be the more likely outcome.

Uefa secretary general Gianni Infantino yesterday said, “In terms of deadlines, it’s still on track, so I’m not worried or anxious or concerned,” he said. “In legal proceedings, time has to be taken to analyse everything.”

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.

Instead of praying for a loop hole in the system why not just accept that you haven't done enough to prevent the introduction of FFP having such a profound impact on your club and accept the punishment for not abiding by the rules. It's not like it wasn't spelt out to you 2/3 years ago.

You were given plenty of time to get your house in order and you chose to carry on spending. Well I'm afraid you're just going to have to live with the consequences now, just like all the others who have failed to and are still failing to comply.

Sorry but that's the reality of the situation.

Your understanding of the rules is neatly summed up here. You fail to recognise there is a difference between the rules UEFA are attempting to introduce which apply to clubs competing in their competitions and those the Football League are attempting to introduce.

What Man City do or don't do is of no relevance to Blackburn.

What is important is what Rovers' fellow Championship clubs do. At the moment roughly half of the clubs in the Championship are going to be subjected to an embargo next January. That would ruin the Football League's pride and joy and will not happen. Then of course there are potential legal challenges in the pipeline.

What is important is what Rovers' fellow Championship clubs do. At the moment roughly half of the clubs in the Championship are going to be subjected to an embargo next January. That would ruin the Football League's pride and joy and will not happen. Then of course there are potential legal challenges in the pipeline.
Sadly you are once again mistaken.

"In the Championship, clubs have agreed to introduce a breakeven approach based on the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. Whilst in League 1 and League 2, clubs will implement the Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP) that has been in use in the latter division since 2004/05."

No matter what you try to say the rules are in place to prevent jumped up nobodies such as yourselves from gaining an unfair financial advantage.

There is simply no way out. It's time to pay up.

Interesting to see what Venky's do, GB now has a full season under his belt and has managed to turn the club around, the various directors stay very quiet in the background and let him get on with things, as do Venky's, albeit from afar.

The big issue is how they intend to deal with FFP and get the few remaining deadlegs off their books, the latter is key because they make it even more difficult to meet FFP rules, neither will be easy to achieve but nevertheless we are moving in the right direction at last.

FFP will restrict the amount Venky's can invest in the club but the way I read it, although they are behind the eight ball the club have shown they are dealing with the excesses of the past and have plans to place the club on an even financial keel, I am pretty certain that can be used in mitigation with regard to any potential penalties being imposed.

Please Lancashire Telegraph, please ban all those nasty Burnley fans, we don't like them laughing at us and taking the p!ss now that they are better than us, we simply can't take the banter that we are used to dishing out.

We should be allowed to call them inbred and other such vulgar names because we are the mighty Blackburn Rovers, rivals to Manchester United, but please stop them calling us back. We also don't want to hear the truth about Financial Fair Play and its potentially devastating effects on our club over the coming season, so please prevent such horror stories from become an extra source of panic for myself and all the other poor incontinent Blackburn fans who literally having nothing left to feel positive about.

Perhaps if you cry a bit more they will close down this public forum for fear of it upsetting you.

Just because I am aware of the Financial Fair Play rulings and have on occasion chosen to enlighten one or two of you as to the dire predicament in which you find yourselves, to your obvious disgust I may add, doesn't mean that its sewage.

And here we go again, part two of the award winning comedy series see's our hero Gary Bowyer returning to Indian to beg for his job once again as the Venky's count the cost of another season of abject failure on all fronts.

If Bowyer remains as manager with the impending transfer embargo then all bets are off, Blackburn Rovers will sink like a stone, and all the while a certain Shebby Singh is lurking in the background slowing imposing his influence once again behind the scenes ready to make his dramatic re-entrance when the results start to slip.

Club insiders are saying that at best Bowyer will be given just ten games of the new season to prove his worth, and should Blackburn Rovers not be clear of the chasing pack by this time then it is expected that Venky golden boy Shebby, still on the payroll to the tune of £800k a year, will step in to oversee the next phase of operation rescue Rovers. Shebby has already ear-marked the return of the Portuguese youth team to strengthen his squad.

Exciting times ahead.
"Club insiders" Who are these club insiders? name them.You know nothing of the workings within Rovers,in fact you know nothing about the workings inside the Dingles Turd Moor. You live in a fantasy world in which your dreams become a reality in your tiny mixed up mind. Shebby £800,000 a year? strange you said £400,000 during the year,has he had a pay rise? only in your sick mind. Everything you write stinks of pure jealousy,knowing that whatever your team has done or going to do in the future will be miles behind the achievements of what Rovers have achieved. So write all you can to put the boot in the Rovers,none will alter the fact that your team will never match rovers success and I hope it carry's on giving you nightmares. Saddo.

Club insiders are saying that at best Bowyer will be given just ten games of the new season to prove his worth, and should Blackburn Rovers not be clear of the chasing pack by this time then it is expected that Venky golden boy Shebby, still on the payroll to the tune of £800k a year, will step in to oversee the next phase of operation rescue Rovers. Shebby has already ear-marked the return of the Portuguese youth team to strengthen his squad. Exciting times ahead.[/p][/quote]"Club insiders" Who are these club insiders? name them.You know nothing of the workings within Rovers,in fact you know nothing about the workings inside the Dingles Turd Moor. You live in a fantasy world in which your dreams become a reality in your tiny mixed up mind. Shebby £800,000 a year? strange you said £400,000 during the year,has he had a pay rise? only in your sick mind. Everything you write stinks of pure jealousy,knowing that whatever your team has done or going to do in the future will be miles behind the achievements of what Rovers have achieved. So write all you can to put the boot in the Rovers,none will alter the fact that your team will never match rovers success and I hope it carry's on giving you nightmares. Saddo. earwego

I do agree. So tiresome. It takes so long to scroll past all the nonsense.

I wouldn't dream of going onto a Burnley page.

On the rare occasion that I do a Desmond Morris and try to decipher a Burnley offering, it says so much more about the mental health/personality problems of the author than any footballing item.

There are quite a few hefty issues to sort out, but above everything else its simply a question of the dire financial state.
No matter how you wrap it up its diabolical, there is no way of getting away from it.
I am afraid that some very, very expensive decisions need to be made. I am just thankful it is not my cheque book they are looking at!

The cost of the off loadings is going to be eye watering, this on top of the earlier / last years 'pay offs'.

It is however going to be a good indicator of just how much Venkys really love our club.

"Manchester City have been given more time to negotiate what is known as a ‘settlement’ with the CFCB’s investigatory chamber after failing to do so at the end of last week.

However the parties are so far apart that City are in danger of being the only one of nine clubs facing punishment who choose to fight on beyond Friday’s deadline and take their chances with the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber.

That chamber would assess afresh whether the club failed to comply with FFP rules in their 2011-13 accounts and, if so, would likely impose an even sterner penalty."

The implication for minnows such as Blackburn Rovers could be disastrous. Should City agree a settlement then it will be seen as final acceptance of the rules and FFP rightfully takes its foothold in the game, however should City reject the sanctions and the CFCB rule that they failed to comply, they will then impose an even harsher punishment such as a ban from European competition or an increased fine, which would be the more likely outcome.

Uefa secretary general Gianni Infantino yesterday said, “In terms of deadlines, it’s still on track, so I’m not worried or anxious or concerned,” he said. “In legal proceedings, time has to be taken to analyse everything.”

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.
UEFA's Executive Committee adopted the concept of financial fair play to protect the long term sustainability of European club football, improve club finances, limit player wage inflation, encourage clubs to live within their means, encourage investment in youth infrastructure and to ensure clubs settle their debts on a timely basis.
Key questions for the EU courts in considering the case include whether the system set up by UEFA is compatible with EU competition law and the Internal Market provisions, whether the objectives pursues are legitimate and, regarding restrictions on competition, whether the rules are proportionate to the objective.

In considering these matters, and the question of proportionality, other possible systems of regulation which may be less anti-competitive, may be considered, and it seems likely UEFA will have a lengthy legal battle on their hands to defend FFP, just as its effects are playing out.


One consequence of FFP, and the main disadvantage, is that no clubs will be able to enter the top echelons of football. Clubs at the top of the Premier League, like Manchester United, will be unbreakable. No mid-table club will be able to invest large amounts of money and experience glory. No Chelsea or Manchester City type club would be seen again under FFP. Already rich, powerful teams will dominate for eternity…


The European Commission process is ongoing, with a ruling expected in 2014. It is very likely for the case to eventually end up in the European Court of Justice, just like the Bosman ruling. Dupont is a very experienced and respected football lawyer. With Dupont on the legal team, it looks quite likely that Financial Fair Play will be torn up.

"Manchester City have been given more time to negotiate what is known as a ‘settlement’ with the CFCB’s investigatory chamber after failing to do so at the end of last week.

However the parties are so far apart that City are in danger of being the only one of nine clubs facing punishment who choose to fight on beyond Friday’s deadline and take their chances with the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber.

That chamber would assess afresh whether the club failed to comply with FFP rules in their 2011-13 accounts and, if so, would likely impose an even sterner penalty."

The implication for minnows such as Blackburn Rovers could be disastrous. Should City agree a settlement then it will be seen as final acceptance of the rules and FFP rightfully takes its foothold in the game, however should City reject the sanctions and the CFCB rule that they failed to comply, they will then impose an even harsher punishment such as a ban from European competition or an increased fine, which would be the more likely outcome.

Uefa secretary general Gianni Infantino yesterday said, “In terms of deadlines, it’s still on track, so I’m not worried or anxious or concerned,” he said. “In legal proceedings, time has to be taken to analyse everything.”

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.
UEFA's Executive Committee adopted the concept of financial fair play to protect the long term sustainability of European club football, improve club finances, limit player wage inflation, encourage clubs to live within their means, encourage investment in youth infrastructure and to ensure clubs settle their debts on a timely basis.
Key questions for the EU courts in considering the case include whether the system set up by UEFA is compatible with EU competition law and the Internal Market provisions, whether the objectives pursues are legitimate and, regarding restrictions on competition, whether the rules are proportionate to the objective.

In considering these matters, and the question of proportionality, other possible systems of regulation which may be less anti-competitive, may be considered, and it seems likely UEFA will have a lengthy legal battle on their hands to defend FFP, just as its effects are playing out.


One consequence of FFP, and the main disadvantage, is that no clubs will be able to enter the top echelons of football. Clubs at the top of the Premier League, like Manchester United, will be unbreakable. No mid-table club will be able to invest large amounts of money and experience glory. No Chelsea or Manchester City type club would be seen again under FFP. Already rich, powerful teams will dominate for eternity…


The European Commission process is ongoing, with a ruling expected in 2014. It is very likely for the case to eventually end up in the European Court of Justice, just like the Bosman ruling. Dupont is a very experienced and respected football lawyer. With Dupont on the legal team, it looks quite likely that Financial Fair Play will be torn up.

I do agree. So tiresome. It takes so long to scroll past all the nonsense.

I wouldn't dream of going onto a Burnley page.

On the rare occasion that I do a Desmond Morris and try to decipher a Burnley offering, it says so much more about the mental health/personality problems of the author than any footballing item.
Had It FrenchRover / Leonard, like flogging a dead horse. Staying off these pages now due to all the bull$hit posted on here these days. I totally agree with both of your comments, no one minds a little educated or humorous banter but constant bile on every Rovers story does become tiresome. Good luck GB for next season, let's hope Venky's s stick by you and give you what you need to get Rovers back to a respectable level both on and off the pitch.

You rarely contribute these days? You contribute enough to Burnley threads, like that drivel you posted yesterday. You lot make me laugh. I read terrible comments about Burnley fans from you, on Burnley threads and then there is the serial poster with various monickers and yet when Super Claret points out to you, in a very civilised manner, the reality of your club’s situation, like big babies your contacting the Telegraph to ask them to stop or delete his comments. Didums, get another dummy in. In respect of FFP I am too busy with my business to have studied it but friends who are Man City fans say that they are about to get clobbered and are trying, so far unsuccessfully, to appeal against a reduced squad squad for the CL and a fine. As this concurs with what SC is saying I would assume he knows what he is saying in relation to your club.

I don't really have a problem with the troll, he has a 30 odd year axe to grind and after next season it will all be over because he will disappear up his own arse so fast the explosion will be hear in Beijing.

We won't have to put up with it for much longer, trust me on that.

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.
UEFA's Executive Committee adopted the concept of financial fair play to protect the long term sustainability of European club football, improve club finances, limit player wage inflation, encourage clubs to live within their means, encourage investment in youth infrastructure and to ensure clubs settle their debts on a timely basis.
Key questions for the EU courts in considering the case include whether the system set up by UEFA is compatible with EU competition law and the Internal Market provisions, whether the objectives pursues are legitimate and, regarding restrictions on competition, whether the rules are proportionate to the objective.

In considering these matters, and the question of proportionality, other possible systems of regulation which may be less anti-competitive, may be considered, and it seems likely UEFA will have a lengthy legal battle on their hands to defend FFP, just as its effects are playing out.


One consequence of FFP, and the main disadvantage, is that no clubs will be able to enter the top echelons of football. Clubs at the top of the Premier League, like Manchester United, will be unbreakable. No mid-table club will be able to invest large amounts of money and experience glory. No Chelsea or Manchester City type club would be seen again under FFP. Already rich, powerful teams will dominate for eternity…


The European Commission process is ongoing, with a ruling expected in 2014. It is very likely for the case to eventually end up in the European Court of Justice, just like the Bosman ruling. Dupont is a very experienced and respected football lawyer. With Dupont on the legal team, it looks quite likely that Financial Fair Play will be torn up.

EU law in football
The fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the European Union include the right to free movement of workers2. The establishment of an internal market, ‘an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured,’ is one of the principal tasks entrusted to the Union3. Every citizen of the European Union (including footballers) has the right to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States

"Manchester City have been given more time to negotiate what is known as a ‘settlement’ with the CFCB’s investigatory chamber after failing to do so at the end of last week.

However the parties are so far apart that City are in danger of being the only one of nine clubs facing punishment who choose to fight on beyond Friday’s deadline and take their chances with the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber.

That chamber would assess afresh whether the club failed to comply with FFP rules in their 2011-13 accounts and, if so, would likely impose an even sterner penalty."

The implication for minnows such as Blackburn Rovers could be disastrous. Should City agree a settlement then it will be seen as final acceptance of the rules and FFP rightfully takes its foothold in the game, however should City reject the sanctions and the CFCB rule that they failed to comply, they will then impose an even harsher punishment such as a ban from European competition or an increased fine, which would be the more likely outcome.

Uefa secretary general Gianni Infantino yesterday said, “In terms of deadlines, it’s still on track, so I’m not worried or anxious or concerned,” he said. “In legal proceedings, time has to be taken to analyse everything.”

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.
UEFA's Executive Committee adopted the concept of financial fair play to protect the long term sustainability of European club football, improve club finances, limit player wage inflation, encourage clubs to live within their means, encourage investment in youth infrastructure and to ensure clubs settle their debts on a timely basis.
Key questions for the EU courts in considering the case include whether the system set up by UEFA is compatible with EU competition law and the Internal Market provisions, whether the objectives pursues are legitimate and, regarding restrictions on competition, whether the rules are proportionate to the objective.

In considering these matters, and the question of proportionality, other possible systems of regulation which may be less anti-competitive, may be considered, and it seems likely UEFA will have a lengthy legal battle on their hands to defend FFP, just as its effects are playing out.


One consequence of FFP, and the main disadvantage, is that no clubs will be able to enter the top echelons of football. Clubs at the top of the Premier League, like Manchester United, will be unbreakable. No mid-table club will be able to invest large amounts of money and experience glory. No Chelsea or Manchester City type club would be seen again under FFP. Already rich, powerful teams will dominate for eternity…


The European Commission process is ongoing, with a ruling expected in 2014. It is very likely for the case to eventually end up in the European Court of Justice, just like the Bosman ruling. Dupont is a very experienced and respected football lawyer. With Dupont on the legal team, it looks quite likely that Financial Fair Play will be torn up.
Only in your imagination. Just another no-dad wish list item thats about to make you cry even more.
When City come t'Turf,why not join in the Posnan?
That way,you can turn your back on your own team again.

EU law in football
The fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the European Union include the right to free movement of workers2. The establishment of an internal market, ‘an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured,’ is one of the principal tasks entrusted to the Union3. Every citizen of the European Union (including footballers) has the right to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States
concentrate on this bit the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured when you have worked out what that means

"UEFA and the European Commission have signed a joint agreement intended to prevent clubs using the EU legal system to challenge the validity of FFP, for example by claiming that it conflicted with anti-competition legislation.

The European Union - who acknowledged the unique "specificity of sport" in the Treaty of Lisbon - policy on sport stated "good governance in sport is a condition for the autonomy and self-regulation of sport organisations".

The vice-president of the EC and the Commissioner for Competition Joaquin Almunia confirmed that the existing FFP rules were both valid and in accordance with European legislation, saying; "I fully support the objectives of UEFA's FFP rules as I believe it is essential for football clubs to have a solid financial foundation."


Just read that again to yourself.

The rules are in accordance with European law and the European Union has acknowledged FFP.


It's just no good Jim, you are trying to convince yourself that Blackburn Rovers deserve to be exempt from the rules that govern all clubs. It's simply not going to happen I'm afraid. You have had since 2012 to get your house in order and you have failed. You must now accept the punishments that were known to all from the outset. In this case a transfer ban until your losses are reduced by circa £30million, which is quite a figure.

Your own managing director Derek Shaw has previously said this season "If we are promoted I think we'll have a substantial fine and, if we're not promoted we'll have an embargo".

By the 2015-16 season, losses at a Championship club can be no more than £5m, with a maximum of £3m funded by shareholders. To continue to bank all your hopes on the rules being overturned to suit your clubs non-compliance due to ridiculous overspending is simply deluded.

You better get those collection buckets out pal because your club has got some pennies to find asap.

what are you going on about - i write on a burnley feature about once a month and always try to make constructive and factual points - the idiot i was disagreeing with was saying how full the burnley stands were and i said that he/she was wrong.

the idiot who spends his whole life on rovers pages clearly has a sad life and has nothing better to do - relegation, administration, financial oblivion, shebby singh being in place, bowyer getting fired, rovers history is bunkum, jack walker being senile....do you want me to go on? oh and then there is the issue of its multiple sign-on names even on this page. it for i dont know whether it is a he or she (and, i suspect, nor does it) must be very very lonely.

Perhaps if you cry a bit more they will close down this public forum for fear of it upsetting you.

Just because I am aware of the Financial Fair Play rulings and have on occasion chosen to enlighten one or two of you as to the dire predicament in which you find yourselves, to your obvious disgust I may add, doesn't mean that its sewage. If the facts hurt you so much then perhaps you should just hibernate until all this FFP nonsense blows over...

I have simply quoted from the Uefa website regarding FFP. I'm not telling you anything that isn't already freely available. You just don't like it that's all.

How long would it then take for the new manager to get the best out of a squad of misfits and rejects such as yours? Should you not get off to a flyer I see only further turmoil ahead.

If the facts hurt you so much then perhaps you should just hibernate until all this FFP nonsense blows over...

I have simply quoted from the Uefa website regarding FFP. I'm not telling you anything that isn't already freely available. You just don't like it that's all.
Keep talking gobby,lets see how clever you are at xmas with your club in the bottom 3.
Umm that sounds familiar, oh yes we heard it all this season, and look how that worked out for you...

Venkys will without doubt be telling Bowyer to wield the axe, starting with Rhodes and "Mr Blackburn " David "sponsored by Hollands pies" Dunn. And then sell sell sell the rest of the dead wood that aren't tied to ridiculously well paid contracts.

And if Bowyer doesn't tow the party line he can expect to be slapped around the room senseless by Bilaji "the enforcer" Rao.

"Manchester City have been given more time to negotiate what is known as a ‘settlement’ with the CFCB’s investigatory chamber after failing to do so at the end of last week.

However the parties are so far apart that City are in danger of being the only one of nine clubs facing punishment who choose to fight on beyond Friday’s deadline and take their chances with the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber.

That chamber would assess afresh whether the club failed to comply with FFP rules in their 2011-13 accounts and, if so, would likely impose an even sterner penalty."

The implication for minnows such as Blackburn Rovers could be disastrous. Should City agree a settlement then it will be seen as final acceptance of the rules and FFP rightfully takes its foothold in the game, however should City reject the sanctions and the CFCB rule that they failed to comply, they will then impose an even harsher punishment such as a ban from European competition or an increased fine, which would be the more likely outcome.

Uefa secretary general Gianni Infantino yesterday said, “In terms of deadlines, it’s still on track, so I’m not worried or anxious or concerned,” he said. “In legal proceedings, time has to be taken to analyse everything.”

These rules are not going away unfortunately, no matter how much you cry about it.
UEFA's Executive Committee adopted the concept of financial fair play to protect the long term sustainability of European club football, improve club finances, limit player wage inflation, encourage clubs to live within their means, encourage investment in youth infrastructure and to ensure clubs settle their debts on a timely basis.
Key questions for the EU courts in considering the case include whether the system set up by UEFA is compatible with EU competition law and the Internal Market provisions, whether the objectives pursues are legitimate and, regarding restrictions on competition, whether the rules are proportionate to the objective.

In considering these matters, and the question of proportionality, other possible systems of regulation which may be less anti-competitive, may be considered, and it seems likely UEFA will have a lengthy legal battle on their hands to defend FFP, just as its effects are playing out.


One consequence of FFP, and the main disadvantage, is that no clubs will be able to enter the top echelons of football. Clubs at the top of the Premier League, like Manchester United, will be unbreakable. No mid-table club will be able to invest large amounts of money and experience glory. No Chelsea or Manchester City type club would be seen again under FFP. Already rich, powerful teams will dominate for eternity…


The European Commission process is ongoing, with a ruling expected in 2014. It is very likely for the case to eventually end up in the European Court of Justice, just like the Bosman ruling. Dupont is a very experienced and respected football lawyer. With Dupont on the legal team, it looks quite likely that Financial Fair Play will be torn up.
Only in your imagination. Just another no-dad wish list item thats about to make you cry even more.
When City come t'Turf,why not join in the Posnan?
That way,you can turn your back on your own team again.
do you understand anything about european law
EU law in football
The fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the European Union include the right to free movement of workers2. The establishment of an internal market, ‘an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured,’ is one of the principal tasks entrusted to the Union3. Every citizen of the European Union (including footballers) has the right to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States
concentrate on this bit the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured when you have worked out what that means
and how that has anything to do with ffp feel free to enlighten all
"UEFA and the European Commission have signed a joint agreement intended to prevent clubs using the EU legal system to challenge the validity of FFP, for example by claiming that it conflicted with anti-competition legislation.

The European Union - who acknowledged the unique "specificity of sport" in the Treaty of Lisbon - policy on sport stated "good governance in sport is a condition for the autonomy and self-regulation of sport organisations".

The vice-president of the EC and the Commissioner for Competition Joaquin Almunia confirmed that the existing FFP rules were both valid and in accordance with European legislation, saying; "I fully support the objectives of UEFA's FFP rules as I believe it is essential for football clubs to have a solid financial foundation."


Just read that again to yourself.

The rules are in accordance with European law and the European Union has acknowledged FFP.


It's just no good Jim, you are trying to convince yourself that Blackburn Rovers deserve to be exempt from the rules that govern all clubs. It's simply not going to happen I'm afraid. You have had since 2012 to get your house in order and you have failed. You must now accept the punishments that were known to all from the outset. In this case a transfer ban until your losses are reduced by circa £30million, which is quite a figure.

Your own managing director Derek Shaw has previously said this season "If we are promoted I think we'll have a substantial fine and, if we're not promoted we'll have an embargo".

By the 2015-16 season, losses at a Championship club can be no more than £5m, with a maximum of £3m funded by shareholders. To continue to bank all your hopes on the rules being overturned to suit your clubs non-compliance due to ridiculous overspending is simply deluded.

You better get those collection buckets out pal because your club has got some pennies to find asap.
If collecting buckets solve the problem, then what is the problem? The Venky's can just "fill" the bucket to satisfy your argument.
