BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer expects Corry Evans to start delivering on his huge promise when he resumes training next week.

Evans was absent for the start of pre-season yesterday after being granted extra time off following his excursions with Northern Ireland.

But the 23-year-old midfielder, who started both of his country’s friendlies in Uruguay and Chile at the end of last season, will be back at Brockhall on Monday.

Evans’ debut campaign at Rovers was interrupted by a serious ankle injury sustained while he was on international duty.

But the former Hull City man proved before and after his five-month lay-off why his manager believes he can become central to his plans this season.

Bowyer said: “Corry is fine but we just wanted to give him a few more days as he was away with his country until the first week in June.

“We were more than happy for him to play in those games as he missed a big chunk of last season.

“It was a massive loss to us when he got injured.

“Credit to him, though, he came back from the injury and toward the end of the season he showed the quality he possesses – his performance at Charlton, for example, was huge.

“So it was good for him to keep ticking over and play against two very good teams in Uruguay and Chile and now we can’t wait to have him back.

“He’s had a good rest and now we’re hoping he can have a really good pre-season and show what a good player he can be.

“He isn’t the biggest of players but he has got a massive heart, he gives everything he’s got and he does a bit of everything.

“He does the tackling, he can pass and play it forward and he showed against Bolton with the quality of his goal that he has got a shot on him.”

Evans and fellow summer signing Ben Marshall missed most of pre-season last year while a number of players in the current Rovers squad joined after the campaign began.

Bowyer said: “The fact that a number of the lads are going to have a full pre-season with us is only going to make them stronger.

“We’ve got Ben Marshall and Corry Evans and we’ve got someone like Rudy Gestede who we had to manage carefully through the back end of the season when he had little aches and pains from not having a proper pre-season.”

Meanwhile, Rovers’ out-of-contract defender Markus Olsson has been linked with a move to Championship rivals Ipswich Town.

The 26-year-old is officially a free agent as Rovers have so far failed to agree fresh terms with him.

Ipswich are said to be on the lookout for a left back after boss Mick McCarthy, who is scouring the market for free transfers and loans, admitted there had been interest in star man Aaron Cresswell.

difficult to **** given his injury hit season , but looks more mobile and forward thinking than lowe, so given the indications of a more attacking style , he should have every chance to prove himself.

Really looking forward to when FFP kicks in, and all the wovers fans who have praised GB like he could walk on water is caught with his pants down as you languish close to the drop zone, fans dressed as plastic seats again, and a transfer embargo……let’s hope Shabby Singh makes a welcome return just to rub salt in the open wounds.

The victory at Ewood park was priceless, just to look at a combination of hate filled faces, and kids crying….filled my heart with joy. I did feel sorry for the wives / girlfriends / pets when the collection of knuckle dragging troglodytes retuned home however.

And now we are in the premier league, you no longer have you safety blanket of 30+ years and will be a mid table championship club at the very very best , normal order has been restored.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing Evans with full pre season under his belt this time. If he can remain injury free we should be in for a treat with the Evans Cairney partnership. Just need to tighten the defence now which Bowyer is working on.

I know. It's like when you're having a meal holiday and there's a mangy looking cat with one eye and a limp sniffing round your table for scraps.

All the locals and staff ignore the pitiful creature or throw things at it, but you take pity on the desperate little critter & make the mistake of throwing it a scrap.

Then you're lumbered. This gimp is the same. Harmless enough but not worth wasting time over.

Anyhow, back to football, we've not had a decent settled midfield pairing since the days of Tugay/Savage. I'm not suggesting that Evans/Cairney are as good as those two (if only!) but if can stick with them as a pairing they can get a similar dynamic going.

We've then got the likes of Willo and Lowe who can come in and do the "water carrying" role as required.

Yes there's no way they can compare with Tuguy and Savage but I think there won't be many more better pairings in the Championship than Evans and Cairney if they can both stay fit.

So you go on holiday to places with mangy looking cat's with one eye and a limp sniffing around your table?

What a holiday that must be. Personally I demand a far higher standard of hygiene when it comes to holiday destinations, and I'm pleased to say that having travelled extensively I have never encountered such shocking conditions. I pity you.

From the players we've Lowe is probably our best shout at right back, he's all about work rate so he can effective there without giving himself a nosebleed by going too far forward.

Definitely need some depth at the back though.

It's quite funny really, all the comment's by so called Burnley fans are by the same troll that really doesn't have a clue what it's talking about.

Take FFP.

Past debts are not relevant in FFP, it works on a season by season income v outgoings ratio.

Therefore the only figures that matter now are those for the 2013 - 14 season, and the only figures that will matter at this time next year are the figures for the 2014 - 15 season, and so on.

That's what Shaw and GB mean when they say it will take two more windows before the club is back on an even keel.

Rovers are taking the financial hit now, the FA will look at their accounts and decide if fines and / or a transfer embargo are required, Rovers know this, and because Venky's now have people in place who know what they are doing so do Venky's.

I would expect that Rovers and the majority of clubs affected will have been talking to the FA, asking for guidance, explaining the steps they are taking; etc, etc, so nothing will come as a shock to either party.

And Rovers, just like any other club have the right to appeal, as I said before, the precedent has been set with Man City.

In the meantime it laughs at Rovers because we are looking at free transfers, yet the club it pretends to support, with an alleged earning capacity of £120 million next season are signing free transfers, or attempting to trigger clauses in players contracts to get them on the cheap.

Now they are after a direct replacement for Ings, Troy Deeley from Watford and a washed up ex Rovers player, Steven Reid who jumped ship at the first wave of a pound a week more on his contract and spends half a season on the physio's bench at best.

The rumours of an imminent move to Newcastle for Ings are growing stronger by the hour, more cash in Burnley directors back pockets.

FFP is based on the annual loss a club makes.

In the last published set of figures your club LOST £36.5million. Since that time you have made savings to the wage bill but have offset those savings by virtue of having to pay off the contracts of the players you wanted to get rid of. You have now also incurred an additional £8m shortfall due the reduction in parachute payments, which clearly shows you to be in a very precarious position. With only one further parachute payment after this season a full and complete restructuring will be required.

But keep denying it if you must, it will simply make it all the more hilarious in December when Sky Sports are interviewing angry cross-eyed no-dads outside Ewood Park.... "By eck, wur in a reight mess on't we, them thur Venky's need to sell up an ship owt reight sharpish like".

When it comes to Blackburn Rovers, you really couldn't make it up.

Don't give him the attention that he desperately seeks Mr Maul. Do as I do and ignore him. Anyway, looking forward to seeing Evans with full pre season under his belt this time. If he can remain injury free we should be in for a treat with the Evans Cairney partnership. Just need to tighten the defence now which Bowyer is working on.
I know. It's like when you're having a meal holiday and there's a mangy looking cat with one eye and a limp sniffing round your table for scraps. All the locals and staff ignore the pitiful creature or throw things at it, but you take pity on the desperate little critter & make the mistake of throwing it a scrap. Then you're lumbered. This gimp is the same. Harmless enough but not worth wasting time over. Anyhow, back to football, we've not had a decent settled midfield pairing since the days of Tugay/Savage. I'm not suggesting that Evans/Cairney are as good as those two (if only!) but if can stick with them as a pairing they can get a similar dynamic going. We've then got the likes of Willo and Lowe who can come in and do the "water carrying" role as required.
Love the analogy of the troll. Spot on buut that's enough time spent on him....... Yes there's no way they can compare with Tuguy and Savage but I think there won't be many more better pairings in the Championship than Evans and Cairney if they can both stay fit. Don't know about Lowe in mid field, although he's a worker but I think he would make a better right back if we can't bring in an established one.
From the players we've Lowe is probably our best shout at right back, he's all about work rate so he can effective there without giving himself a nosebleed by going too far forward.

Definitely need some depth at the back though.

The troll's getting riled now. Bless.

The boost we received from beating your clowns on your own patch drove us on to automatic promotion. It also ensured that you lot couldn't sneak an undeserved play-off spot and thus with FFP on the horizon we have effectively kept you down forever.

It was far more than just a win.


"the normal domination from the Rovers will be resumed in the not to distant future"

Hardly likely at all really is it. Deep down you know the game is up and our roles have been reversed. It hurts but you will have to come to terms with the fact that your debt-ridden laughingstock of a football club will never again experience top flight football.

The loss of Evans and Marshall had a detrimental effect on our season but with a fully fit squad we should be one of the most exciting teams to watch next season.

YCMIU.[/p][/quote]Imagine how embarrassing it nust be Nick, when as a promoted Premiership team, Championship players should be falling over each other to get to play in the top tier, yet here we are with the wood shack, newly promoted and money to burn and every Championship club player knowing full well its just going to be a one season wonder (and League 1 probably pays better than the penny farthing club) and they're slamming the door in Bonleh's face without even considering it... Ouch! That's got to hurt. No wonder the resident loon from the toon clubs been frothing like werewolf on a full moon.. 😈😈😈😈😈 😈😈😈😈😈 😈😈😈😈😈 😈😈 Aaawwwwwwwoooooooooo oooo! roverstid

Another no-mark second division player being bummed up by Bowyer.

Desperate.
I know,what we should have does is got Steven Reid in on a free transfer.I'm just loving how you are bigging up your transfer dealings.
But not as much as Brendan's loving it.
He must have looked on here yesterday and thought all his dreams had come true.
Reid,Gilks,Duff ,,Kightly and Sordell,and you lot are talking them up like you've signed the Brazil national team.
YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP.

I see those strange voices in your head have returned - go see the doc or take a holiday. Or do both and go annoy Doc Holliday.
