BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has confirmed that Hull City have made a move for Jordan Rhodes - but the club have turned down the Premier League outfit's initial offer, which is believed to have been £8m.

Hull are in the market for a striker after selling Shane Long to Southampton for £12m and have approached Rovers about their star man Rhodes.

At a press conference this afternoon Bowyer confirmed: "There has been an enquiry which has been taken to the board and the owners and that's as much as I know."

As things stand Rhodes is still in Rovers' squad for Saturday's home match against Bournemouth, which would be his 100th appearance for the club.

Speaking after his side's Europa League loss at Lokeren tonight Hull boss Steve Bruce said he was unaware the bid had been turned down before adding: "There's been dialogue at boardroom level and we'll see what comes of it.

"It's somebody who we are interested in and we've tabled a bid.

"What the situation is - as I talk to you now - I'm not quite sure until I see the powers-that-be."

Looks like Rhodes could be off despite signing a new contract at Rovers. All it takes these days is more money in the bank for a player and although Rhodes has reiterated that he is happy at Rovers, he does not have control when it comes to the decision of the club's owners, especially if they wish to cash in.

Think it's inevitable Rhodes will go, I hope we use some of the money to sign a good striker to partner Gestede, Varney and Brown are not good enough if we want to challenge for promotion.

He has signed a new contract during this transfer window. There should be rules against the availability of players who have recently signed a new contract because, even if the transfer does not go through, it is completely disrespectful of the bidding club to both the player for unsettling him when he has already made a decision about his future not so long ago and the club who had hoped to have ended speculation by getting the player to sign a new contract. But hey, who cares about respect in football anymore?

Got to say I wouldn't be that upset if he went as long as a percentage of the money went to strengthen the squad. Yes he scores a decent rate of goals but he doesn't really contribute much more. My bigger worry is that the genius track suit wearing so called manager of our club will see it as a perfect opportunity to play his bloody negative boring 4-5-1 formation!!! If that's the case I will not go and watch them again until he is removed!!

Unfortunately we cannot reinvest even £2m in the squad whilst carrying a loss of £30m+. Thats the whole idea of FFP I'm afraid. We can only spend within our means on the proviso that we carry a maximum annual loss of just £3m. Therefore all the money received for Rhodes will be used in an attempt to convince the FFP administrators that whilst we are non-compliant we are taking steps to reduce the deficit and work towards becoming self sufficient within the next two transfer windows as the club have already planned.

This is all expected. The reason Rhodes was offered the contract extension only a month ago was to ensure that we receive a decent amount for the player after we settle what we owe to Huddersfield Town which is a basic £4m plus 20% of any future add-on. We can then expect to come out with £4m, plus a saving of £2m per year on salary. I'm afraid to say we can no longer turn down this kind of money.

The big worry now is that we will struggle for consistency given that Rhodes goals have pretty much singlehandedly kept us in the Championship for 2 years running. Who will step up and become our 25 goal a season striker? Luke Varney? Chris Brown?

I believe we are now entering the choppy waters of sh*t creek and we've just lost our paddle.

I wouldn't swap 25 goals a season for £12m, if that is to be the bid.

In any event this unwelcome news just underlines how very difficult it is to get back up there once you have fallen out of the Prem and what unforgivable, ever lasting , and huge damage those accursed Venkys have done to this once proud club, sadly no more. How they dare to show their hideous faces at Ewood Park defeats me. Thankfully, I don't go to Ewood Park any more to bend my knee to the Venkys. VENKYS OUT!

I understand that, but I'm just taking about all players in general. There should be rules against players being allowed to leave in at least the next transfer window after they have signed a new contract. There has to be something that forces players to honour their contracts, a contract is still legally binding and in any other profession more would be done to ensure a contract was adhered to.

@TurfMoor Tom perhaps I am not explaining this clearly to you. FFP restricts the amount the owners can invest not money received from transfers. Transfer money is income. Investment from owners is capital. FFP restricts capital investment.

if Rhodes goes, it won't be for less than £20m.

Seemingly, their desire to see us fail is greater than their desire to see themselves succeed. Happy to cut their nose off to spite their face.

That's bitterness for you and no need to spell out why.

If Rhodes does go then we need to spend at least £6M of it on a new striker and centre half.

Nail and head. They talk about minding a gap- how about these gaps, Knocking one out over being in the PL for a second time- been there 18 times already and won it- (that's 16 more times than Burnley, for those who struggle with figures.)
12 Major trophies to Burnley's 5 (again, that's 7 more for those who don't do so well with numbers).
Burnley's obsession with Rovers is absolutely hilarious, not surprised when you support such a gimp football club like.

They talk about minding a gap- how about these gaps, Knocking one out over being in the PL for a second time- been there 18 times already and won it- (that's 16 more times than Burnley, for those who struggle with figures.) 12 Major trophies to Burnley's 5 (again, that's 7 more for those who don't do so well with numbers). Burnley's obsession with Rovers is absolutely hilarious, not surprised when you support such a gimp football club like. KHod1995

Wow amazing how many burnley fans interested in this article - who are they buying/selling? Who cares?

If he goes he goes - we need a decent partner/alternative for rudy; and we need to improve/organise our defence as a priority, I'm more concerned about that to be honest, if we can't defend we won't get anywhere

I cant see Rhodes wanting to join Hull somehow, with respect to them he would want to join a bigger club than them when he calls time on his Rovers career.

I would hate to see him go at this stage but I will wish him luck if he does and thank him for his service to the blue and white shirt.

Remarkably tallented player in my opinion.

JUST IGNORE TURFMOOR TOM. He's a Dingle and knows he's on borrowed time so just let him froth himself up.

Regarding the subject, if he goes at £12m, not ideal though that's life and in the medium term manageable. Just need to find someone effective ~£2m and ~£15k/week. Could even try Gestede and King as a stopgap.

Food for thought.
Rovers plastered Rhodes allover our merchandising and built the premise of a good season on him. Getting people buying season tickets and shirts with his name on the back and getting him to sign autographs and stuff in pre-season.

Then get him to sign a new contract. Get all the players to praise his staying (Tom Cairney was chuffed he was staying) and then pull the rug out from under the team and fans by selling him.

Do people really think Bowyer or Venkys have the ambition to get us promoted?
If they could sell Gestede for more than they paid for him they would.

Remember the transfer embargo is getting imposed on us in January so what we finish this window with we are stuck with.

Defence naff. Remember Baptiste is a loan so we won't even be able to sign him later. So what we have now minus Baptiste defensively is it.
Rhodes going. Leaving us with Gestede, Brown and Varney upfront.

Yeah we might bring in another striker. But do people really think any money will be spent on him? Does anyone thing it will be a striker of quality?
It will either be an untested striker or a older past it striker.
Hell using Bowyers logic of playing defenders in different positions after ditching Dann last season we will probably end up with King upfront and no replacement coming in.

What has happened over the last few years in the Championship is the systematic removal of any players worth anything of any quality.
Olsson, Dann and now Rhodes.

What has been left is the excuse of no money available. Balancing the books and bringing in cheap players in the hopes that they might be half decent in Conway and Gestede for very little.

Bowyer has been lucky so far. But the luck has started to run out with the likes of Varney and Brown.

If people don't realise how much trouble we are in at the moment then do it fast.

But hey never mind. I am sure the Blackburn Rovers Action Group will make the difference they oh so promised to make huh?

Very surprised to find its true and massively disappointed.

Can't believe some Rovers fans are stupid enough to post that they aren't bothered if he goes!!!

Drr, yes he may not be Lionel Messi but he scores around 25 goals every season - how on earth do you replace that???

Strikers with that kind of consistency can't be easily replaced, especially when you are in our financial position.

Obviously the season would be over in so far as promotion via the play-offs - you can't finish 8th then lose 25 goals out of your squad, having not really strengthened and still compete, especially in a division when many teams have improved their squads this summer.

Also, what a body blow to our other good players, Cairney, Conway, Gestede and Hanley - how are they going to feel knowing we are now playing for mid table - will they start looking for a move in the next transfer window??

The only good news if he is sold would that we may avoid a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 (??) which would be both humiliating for our famous proud club and disastrous from a playing/competing perspective.

Sad days indeed.

Hard to tell the real fan reactions from the trolls these days. Honest unbiased (as possible) view on it is:

At 12 million plus the wages he is on you'll be able to get two or three quality players in. I'd say it's a good deal if GB has a plan in place and has his eyes on a few players. You might struggle to make the signings happen in time for the window closing but you'll almost break even on a player who has given a lot to the club since arriving

It seems they wanted to keep his value up and try to persuade him to stay with a higher salary. Banter and nonsense aside, it will be very difficult to replace him with a cut price recruit. Nobody springs to mind tbh.

The reason Rhodes hasn't scored this season is because the tactics Bowyer plays isn't central to Rhodes feet.

This will have left Rhodes unhappy.

The likelihood is he would get a chance to play at Hull as well. I don't see them as relegation threatened this season, they look like a club strengthening. Look at their buys over the past 2 seasons.
Not gone yet, would be hard to replace him though.

Is it because Bowyer plays so negatively in trying to keep hold of a point and not lose that it invites pressure on a defence that isn't the most reliable in the world in the first place.
Whatever happens I will still go. It is too late to change alliances after 64 years. Come on you Blues.

Well at least I have enjoyed 60years of watching the Rovers minus the last 2 of not watching them. It was good whilst it lasted. Never thought I would see them win the top division, but I did. Now the owners are slowly squeezing the life out of the club. It is all downhill. But if they leave then I shall be back, irrespective of what division we are playing in.

Just hope the deal is done quickly, so that we have enough time to find a replacement and strengthen the rest of our squad.
We probable still owe Hull a few million, as I doubt we paid them 8m outright.
Possible replacements - Chris Wood or Joe Garner ?????

Whoever comes in will struggle to match 90 games and 51 goals.

As gutted and worried as I am…. I have no problem with Rhodes leaving. He’s been phenomenal. Always gave his best for Rovers - and I respect that he’s doing the best for himself with this move.
2 great shouts in both Joe Garner (pity we let him go in the first place) and Woods who definitely could score 20 goals plus in this division and maybe available for around £2m (Wolves have recently been sniffing round him). Personally I can't understand why Leicester wouldn't want him as part of their squad.

Also, would Venkys use £2 or £3m to find a replacement, we really can't tell with these muppets as they are so unpredictable and at times very illogical - those are 2 of the reasons that makes them such terrible owners.

Rovers plastered Rhodes allover our merchandising and built the premise of a good season on him. Getting people buying season tickets and shirts with his name on the back and getting him to sign autographs and stuff in pre-season.

Then get him to sign a new contract. Get all the players to praise his staying (Tom Cairney was chuffed he was staying) and then pull the rug out from under the team and fans by selling him.

Do people really think Bowyer or Venkys have the ambition to get us promoted?
If they could sell Gestede for more than they paid for him they would.

Remember the transfer embargo is getting imposed on us in January so what we finish this window with we are stuck with.

Defence naff. Remember Baptiste is a loan so we won't even be able to sign him later. So what we have now minus Baptiste defensively is it.
Rhodes going. Leaving us with Gestede, Brown and Varney upfront.

Yeah we might bring in another striker. But do people really think any money will be spent on him? Does anyone thing it will be a striker of quality?
It will either be an untested striker or a older past it striker.
Hell using Bowyers logic of playing defenders in different positions after ditching Dann last season we will probably end up with King upfront and no replacement coming in.

What has happened over the last few years in the Championship is the systematic removal of any players worth anything of any quality.
Olsson, Dann and now Rhodes.

What has been left is the excuse of no money available. Balancing the books and bringing in cheap players in the hopes that they might be half decent in Conway and Gestede for very little.

Bowyer has been lucky so far. But the luck has started to run out with the likes of Varney and Brown.

If people don't realise how much trouble we are in at the moment then do it fast.

But hey never mind. I am sure the Blackburn Rovers Action Group will make the difference they oh so promised to make huh?

The reason Rhodes hasn't scored this season is because the tactics Bowyer plays isn't central to Rhodes feet.

This will have left Rhodes unhappy.
I don't believe the nonsense about him picking up a knock on 64 mins against Norwich by the way.
I am guessing he got a call from Venkys on 64 minutes instructing him to substitute Rhodes immediately as they have received a bid from Hull and they needed to protect their only saleable asset.

So Jordan Rhodes is going to leave Jordan Rhodes FC is he? Ouch.

It wasn't that long ago we were chanting about "Don't sell the Rhodes...riot etc" now some on this board seem resigned to losing him? Are you all mad, talking about limited contributions other than scoring 20 plus goals. The lad is a fantastic finisher. Yes he has his poor spells like everyone but he is our poster boy and best player by a mile.
If Venkys sell him then they will get a lot of people very angry after encouraging the optimism around Ewood at the moment. The clear message they will send is - you are in the Championship for good. Get used to it.
Would any ambitious club sell their most talented player if they had true ambition?
God I hate Venkys and what they have and continue to do to us.

I wouldnt swap the goals for the money but we missed our chance to go up last season and when you have a 25 goal a season player you better hope you get promoted if you want them to stay.

This is were the negative tactics in certain games comes home to roost, points thrown away in very winnable home games against Charlton, Yeovil, Huddersfield, Birmingham, Sheff Weds. 3 points from those 5.

Latest rumours are that an offer of £10m up front is likely to be accepted by Venkys after Hull's opening bid of £8m was rejected. This confirms, as I aluded to earlier, that we still owe a significant proportion of the original transfer fee to Huddersfield Town and Venkys want to come out of the deal with more than just a few million once we have settled the original fee. For those who think he wont jump at the chance of a move to a stable (wink wink) premier league club, wake up and smell the poultry. Rhodes will never see the top flight with us and should FFP have the devastating and lasting effect that I believe it will then this opportunity may never come around for him again as we're already struggling to get the best out of him under Bowyer woeful tactics. His value will only drop when we are under a transfer embargo and Hull can therefore not be held to ransom, they know we have to sell.

We wont be allowed to replace him as the funds will be channelled into offsetting our losses.

We need to move on and accept that this season is going to be one almighty struggle with the likelihood that more of our better players will be following Rhodes out of the door in January.

Tatts I think you often post some of the best stuff on here but I just don't understand what you are trying to say about the transfer embargo and FFP.

FFP has been introduced by every other league that has been preparing to do so inc the PL, the champions league etc etc - so why should the championship be any different.

As far as I am aware there are only 3 or 4 teams (at most) that will fail and the vast majority have spent the last 2 years preparing for FFP and are determined to vote it in and impose it.

Blackpool FC posted on their own website only3 weeks ago that the vast majority of championship clubs were ready for it and that it would definitely be starting.

Also, whats your point about QPR ?? - that has nothing to do with the fact that FFP may or may not be introduced to the championship.

If they owe £60m to the championship in fines they can either pay it or not, but remember, they have no LEGAL right to be in the championship (all football league structures are run on "invitation basis's" only, that's why sometimes, clubs who win the conference are not allowed in and have no legal recourse) and the next time they are relegated from the PL (which they will be at some point) the 20 members of the football championship may refuse them entry until they have paid that £60m plus interest or they may choose to keep their £60m and play in the conference instead - I really don't care about QPR, do you? (and I don't suppose that many of the other 19 member clubs would care about QPR either if they stiffed them all out of £60m).

FFP has been introduced by every other league that has been preparing to do so inc the PL, the champions league etc etc - so why should the championship be any different.

As far as I am aware there are only 3 or 4 teams (at most) that will fail and the vast majority have spent the last 2 years preparing for FFP and are determined to vote it in and impose it.

Blackpool FC posted on their own website only3 weeks ago that the vast majority of championship clubs were ready for it and that it would definitely be starting.

Also, whats your point about QPR ?? - that has nothing to do with the fact that FFP may or may not be introduced to the championship.

If they owe £60m to the championship in fines they can either pay it or not, but remember, they have no LEGAL right to be in the championship (all football league structures are run on "invitation basis's" only, that's why sometimes, clubs who win the conference are not allowed in and have no legal recourse) and the next time they are relegated from the PL (which they will be at some point) the 20 members of the football championship may refuse them entry until they have paid that £60m plus interest or they may choose to keep their £60m and play in the conference instead - I really don't care about QPR, do you? (and I don't suppose that many of the other 19 member clubs would care about QPR either if they stiffed them all out of £60m).
As far as I am aware the fines will go to charity, not to the FL, PL or any other affiliated association.

Drr, yes he may not be Lionel Messi but he scores around 25 goals every season - how on earth do you replace that??? Strikers with that kind of consistency can't be easily replaced, especially when you are in our financial position. Obviously the season would be over in so far as promotion via the play-offs - you can't finish 8th then lose 25 goals out of your squad, having not really strengthened and still compete, especially in a division when many teams have improved their squads this summer. Also, what a body blow to our other good players, Cairney, Conway, Gestede and Hanley - how are they going to feel knowing we are now playing for mid table - will they start looking for a move in the next transfer window?? The only good news if he is sold would that we may avoid a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 (??) which would be both humiliating for our famous proud club and disastrous from a playing/competing perspective. Sad days indeed.[/p][/quote]Personally I can't see this transfer embargo being imposed as it will impact too many clubs. Also, are QPR really going to pay a fine of £60M as per the FFP rules?

All these comments from Burnley fans? You're back in the big time and instead of embracing it and forgetting about your rivals, you still revolve your success as a comparison to Blackburn. The majority of Wigan, Blackburn and Bolton fans really didn't care about you lot when they were in the PL.

What should be concerning you is the lack of ambition and lack of expenditure at your club. Realistically speaking, you are the worst team in the premier league and if you really intended on staying there then there would have been sensible measures taken for the long run, such as your lack of an international scouting network.

On another note, I would take 12m for Rhodes if offered, but only if the remaining money post clauses was to be spent on reinforcements. If not, then no thanks.

You are correct. When we sell our only real asset then we are indeed looking at a trip to League One. For how long? See Portsmouth.

Sometimes I wish we were more like Burnley and had a bright future to look forward to. Sadly we are more likely to become rivals with Accrington Stanley.

This is all expected. The reason Rhodes was offered the contract extension only a month ago was to ensure that we receive a decent amount for the player after we settle what we owe to Huddersfield Town which is a basic £4m plus 20% of any future add-on. We can then expect to come out with £4m, plus a saving of £2m per year on salary. I'm afraid to say we can no longer turn down this kind of money.

The big worry now is that we will struggle for consistency given that Rhodes goals have pretty much singlehandedly kept us in the Championship for 2 years running. Who will step up and become our 25 goal a season striker? Luke Varney? Chris Brown?

God I hate Venkys and what they have and continue to do to us.
As others have pointed out.. we have sold bigger & better players than Rhodes before Venkys came and will continue to do so after Venkys leave.

If Hull return with an offer in excess of £10 million I think it's important that we accept it. In my humble opinion, even with Jordan we aren't quite good enough to gain promotion and we certainly won't be without him. Selling him for such a ridiculous amount of money plus his extremely high wages being taken away would all but ensure no severe FFP punishment. I think as it stands now the most important thing is the financial well being of the club. Obviously some of the money needs to be reinvested and there are areas that for us need greater improvement, however its his goals that are probably irreplaceable for us. Rhodes as an all round footballer and an all round contributor is certainly replaceable, but as a goalscorer no. Look on the bright side though, he's not even our best player! HA!

Venkys are not the best people in the world to run Blackburn Rovers football club, not by a long shot, but what personal harm have they done to you?.

Regarding FFP, if you read the full 90 page rule book it says that if clubs are blatantly seen to be trying (with a reasonable amount of success) to cut their losses then they will be more likely to be afforded a lighter punishment. I can't think of any club that has made a greater effort to balance their books than we have, especially if we sell Rhodes.

Hard to tell the real fan reactions from the trolls these days. Honest unbiased (as possible) view on it is:

At 12 million plus the wages he is on you'll be able to get two or three quality players in. I'd say it's a good deal if GB has a plan in place and has his eyes on a few players. You might struggle to make the signings happen in time for the window closing but you'll almost break even on a player who has given a lot to the club since arriving
Fair comments MC. Most football fans would acknowledge the fact that decent strikers who can `consistently` get you 20 + goals a season are a very rare commodity these days.

If you do find one (like Rhodes) then you are only going to have him for a short time, even if you are a Man United or an Arsenal! You just have to enjoy the goals he scores for your team whilst he is at your club and then wish him well in the future when he moves on.

Rhodes has done this at all the different levels that he has played at in his career to date - plus he has sound International experience. I am just surprised he even started the season with us to be honest.

Yes we will sorely miss the 20 plus goals he would have undeniably have scored for us this season, but Rovers have to manage this and get a decent replacement in.

His departure was probably in the Rovers directors minds when they got Rhodes to sign the long contract a few weeks ago, at least this will ensure we get top dollar for him when he does go.

I don`t think he will go cheaply though, 12 million will be the bottom line, (plus add-ons) especially when you see that Hull sold Shane Long for that price. I know that Jordan Rhodes is a much, much better striker than Long, and I think Bruce knows that as well....

What will be will be. He's not been prolific since Gestede came in January. He doesn't seem to do so well with another striker. His all round contribution is poor, Can't see him scoring 20 odd goals this season on present form plus he has got them to give a better contract recently. Maybe they feel it's time to get their money back because that will be difficult if he doesn't score many goals this season.

Rovers hold all the aces on this one Frenchy.as you say.Our neighbours laughed when they gave him a new contract,but it just goes to show that investment in the right player is money well spent.We wouldn't want one of our main men walking away for free next summer.
Interesting,though,t
hat we hadn't heard anything about this until last night/today.
If the player wants to push a move through,then you normally hear about it beforehand.That would suggest to me that this is a genuine bid from the Hull side.

Honest unbiased (as possible) view on it is: At 12 million plus the wages he is on you'll be able to get two or three quality players in. I'd say it's a good deal if GB has a plan in place and has his eyes on a few players. You might struggle to make the signings happen in time for the window closing but you'll almost break even on a player who has given a lot to the club since arriving[/p][/quote]Fair comments MC. Most football fans would acknowledge the fact that decent strikers who can `consistently` get you 20 + goals a season are a very rare commodity these days. If you do find one (like Rhodes) then you are only going to have him for a short time, even if you are a Man United or an Arsenal! You just have to enjoy the goals he scores for your team whilst he is at your club and then wish him well in the future when he moves on. Rhodes has done this at all the different levels that he has played at in his career to date - plus he has sound International experience. I am just surprised he even started the season with us to be honest. Yes we will sorely miss the 20 plus goals he would have undeniably have scored for us this season, but Rovers have to manage this and get a decent replacement in. His departure was probably in the Rovers directors minds when they got Rhodes to sign the long contract a few weeks ago, at least this will ensure we get top dollar for him when he does go. I don`t think he will go cheaply though, 12 million will be the bottom line, (plus add-ons) especially when you see that Hull sold Shane Long for that price. I know that Jordan Rhodes is a much, much better striker than Long, and I think Bruce knows that as well....[/p][/quote]Rovers hold all the aces on this one Frenchy.as you say.Our neighbours laughed when they gave him a new contract,but it just goes to show that investment in the right player is money well spent.We wouldn't want one of our main men walking away for free next summer. Interesting,though,t hat we hadn't heard anything about this until last night/today. If the player wants to push a move through,then you normally hear about it beforehand.That would suggest to me that this is a genuine bid from the Hull side. I sincerely hope that Rhodes wants to stay.Nobody seems to have considered that he may not want to move.Here's hoping eh? baldie

Yes he has his poor spells like everyone but he is our poster boy and best player by a mile.
If Venkys sell him then they will get a lot of people very angry after encouraging the optimism around Ewood at the moment. The clear message they will send is - you are in the Championship for good. Get used to it.
Would any ambitious club sell their most talented player if they had true ambition?
God I hate Venkys and what they have and continue to do to us.
As others have pointed out.. we have sold bigger & better players than Rhodes before Venkys came and will continue to do so after Venkys leave.

Good players want to play at a higher level at some point in their career, if we dont get promotion again this season he'll be gone
Glynners what is your point here. We know that better players have passed through Ewood over the years. Are you trying to be some laid back all seeing sage whose wisdom will ensure its all Ok?
We are commenting on the here and now. In the past 20 years we had our premiership status to ensure we could sign decent replacement. Look who we signed over the summer - Varney and Brown FFS.
Rhodes is our best player. We love him and want him to stay. As above in my opinion, Venkys will show their true colours yet again if they betray us, the fans, and the club by selling him. That's all.
In the long run we are all dead.

Do people really think Bowyer or Venkys have the ambition to get us promoted?
If they could sell Gestede for more than they paid for him they would.

Remember the transfer embargo is getting imposed on us in January so what we finish this window with we are stuck with.

Defence naff. Remember Baptiste is a loan so we won't even be able to sign him later. So what we have now minus Baptiste defensively is it.
Rhodes going. Leaving us with Gestede, Brown and Varney upfront.

Yeah we might bring in another striker. But do people really think any money will be spent on him? Does anyone thing it will be a striker of quality?
It will either be an untested striker or a older past it striker.
Hell using Bowyers logic of playing defenders in different positions after ditching Dann last season we will probably end up with King upfront and no replacement coming in.

What has happened over the last few years in the Championship is the systematic removal of any players worth anything of any quality.
Olsson, Dann and now Rhodes.

What has been left is the excuse of no money available. Balancing the books and bringing in cheap players in the hopes that they might be half decent in Conway and Gestede for very little.

Bowyer has been lucky so far. But the luck has started to run out with the likes of Varney and Brown.

If people don't realise how much trouble we are in at the moment then do it fast.

But hey never mind. I am sure the Blackburn Rovers Action Group will make the difference they oh so promised to make huh?

No...Venkys are not robbing you...you owe them cash.

Can't agree with your attitude - If everyone felt the same way as you Ewood Park would be empty on match days, is that what you want?

Venkys are not the best people in the world to run Blackburn Rovers football club, not by a long shot, but what personal harm have they done to you?. While you say you're not spending a penny more at Ewood, Venkys on the other hand have invested quite a respectable amount of cash into the club which begs the question who else would have done so. If you hate the venkys as much as you say, then why not just sign the divorce papers, ride off into the sunset never to be seen or heard of again - you won't be missed- You a Rovers supporter NEVER
Your friends the Venks scum chose to take this football club over which had a massive customer/fan base compared to a run of the mill business, they chose to take out the boring Manager and replace him with a learner with a gob.
They then backed this gobby learner and snubbed all questions, when they were forced to explain their actions on Sky TV they sent a divvie in font of cameras to say he was confused.
They have done a tremendous amount of damage to more people than you or I know.
This pending sale of their lifeline is just anoter symptom of bad management's ongoing destruction of a mighty football club.

Gosh, this is going to give me a sleepless night! Rhodes is one of the key players that Rovers have to fire us back to the Premier League and should he go, our promotion opportunities will be much slimmer.

I only hope that the owners have sought GB's advice and carefully thought about all this instead of just 'cashing in'. GB has certainly put in plenty of time and effort in assembling the current squad and this has brought some stability back to the club.

Then get him to sign a new contract. Get all the players to praise his staying (Tom Cairney was chuffed he was staying) and then pull the rug out from under the team and fans by selling him.

Do people really think Bowyer or Venkys have the ambition to get us promoted?
If they could sell Gestede for more than they paid for him they would.

Remember the transfer embargo is getting imposed on us in January so what we finish this window with we are stuck with.

Defence naff. Remember Baptiste is a loan so we won't even be able to sign him later. So what we have now minus Baptiste defensively is it.
Rhodes going. Leaving us with Gestede, Brown and Varney upfront.

Yeah we might bring in another striker. But do people really think any money will be spent on him? Does anyone thing it will be a striker of quality?
It will either be an untested striker or a older past it striker.
Hell using Bowyers logic of playing defenders in different positions after ditching Dann last season we will probably end up with King upfront and no replacement coming in.

What has happened over the last few years in the Championship is the systematic removal of any players worth anything of any quality.
Olsson, Dann and now Rhodes.

What has been left is the excuse of no money available. Balancing the books and bringing in cheap players in the hopes that they might be half decent in Conway and Gestede for very little.

Bowyer has been lucky so far. But the luck has started to run out with the likes of Varney and Brown.

If people don't realise how much trouble we are in at the moment then do it fast.

But hey never mind. I am sure the Blackburn Rovers Action Group will make the difference they oh so promised to make huh?
we sold shearer, we sold sutton, we sold batty, we sold le saux, we sold sherwood.....do i need to go on?

please note these were all under the stewardship of our #1 fan.

it's what happens - jordan rhodes has been brilliant for us. if he goes, thanks for helping us out.
Ah yes.
Remind me.
What happened when we sold the above players?
We sold Kevin Hird too, Simon barker, jim Arnold (ha ha bad move for him) oh wait on we only existed once jack walker put his money in.......we're skint now it's reality so either support the team or go and follow manure or some other team in the premier league and quit whining on here - as tedious as the unimaginative trolls on here...

"Hull are to bid £10million for Jordan Rhodes as Steve Bruce hunts for striker to replace Shane Long.

Bruce is waiting on an answer from the Lancashire club's Indian owners Venkys to open talks with the striker, but he has been told the figure that makes the move happen.

And the Tigers chief has the cash to meet the valuation on the prolific goalscorer who will be willing to step up to the Premier League.

Rhodes only signed a lucrative contract at Rovers recently, but this is the first time he has been offered top-flight football after previous Championship interest.

Boss Gary Bowyer confirmed news on the bid and admitted the final decision was down to his chiefs in Pune.

Rhodes cost Blackburn £8 million and Huddersfield are due a percentage of any profit. The £10 million deal would help slash the massive annual cost of running Rovers.

Selling their star man would cause a fans revolt, but the money would also help Blackburn get closer to abiding by the Financial Fair Play rules.

Hull are keen on Rhodes as another top target Vicnent Aboubakar is now discussing a move to Porto"

Because we haven't completed our original staged payments to Huddersfield.

The next few days will show whether venkys are true to their word. Either they are 100% behind the management team or they are 100% behind their bank balance. I get the ftp kicks in soon, but without Rhodes we stand less of a chance of promotion and the money venkys will get from promotion is a **** sight more than 8 - 12 million pounds!

So it's the owners fault that another club has bid for one of our players? HOW DARE THEY!!!! It's not like we have ever put an offer in for a player from another club is it!!

£0 will buy the full Ings at the end of the season, dont you worry
Interesting that Bruce has'nt gone for Ings. Says it all really when he could have had him for half the price.
Slight difference......our club have stated he's not for sale...your club have not said that about Rhodes.....thats the difference between big time and heavily in debt.
Don't talk like a fool. A player can force a move no matter what the club says. Ings is still there because no club has made an offer for him. If someone offered to bouble his money do you think for one minute that he would stay at Burnley ?
Venkys have said many times " Rhodes is not for sale" and Bruce clearly thinks he's better than Ings, hence he's gone for Rhodes.

Hard to tell the real fan reactions from the trolls these days. Honest unbiased (as possible) view on it is:

At 12 million plus the wages he is on you'll be able to get two or three quality players in. I'd say it's a good deal if GB has a plan in place and has his eyes on a few players. You might struggle to make the signings happen in time for the window closing but you'll almost break even on a player who has given a lot to the club since arriving
Fair comments MC. Most football fans would acknowledge the fact that decent strikers who can `consistently` get you 20 + goals a season are a very rare commodity these days.

If you do find one (like Rhodes) then you are only going to have him for a short time, even if you are a Man United or an Arsenal! You just have to enjoy the goals he scores for your team whilst he is at your club and then wish him well in the future when he moves on.

Rhodes has done this at all the different levels that he has played at in his career to date - plus he has sound International experience. I am just surprised he even started the season with us to be honest.

Yes we will sorely miss the 20 plus goals he would have undeniably have scored for us this season, but Rovers have to manage this and get a decent replacement in.

His departure was probably in the Rovers directors minds when they got Rhodes to sign the long contract a few weeks ago, at least this will ensure we get top dollar for him when he does go.

I don`t think he will go cheaply though, 12 million will be the bottom line, (plus add-ons) especially when you see that Hull sold Shane Long for that price. I know that Jordan Rhodes is a much, much better striker than Long, and I think Bruce knows that as well....
Rovers hold all the aces on this one Frenchy.as you say.Our neighbours laughed when they gave him a new contract,but it just goes to show that investment in the right player is money well spent.We wouldn't want one of our main men walking away for free next summer.
Interesting,though,t

hat we hadn't heard anything about this until last night/today.
If the player wants to push a move through,then you normally hear about it beforehand.That would suggest to me that this is a genuine bid from the Hull side.
I sincerely hope that Rhodes wants to stay.Nobody seems to have considered that he may not want to move.Here's hoping eh?
You may be right about him not pushing for a move Baldie, but now that Hull have made a bid then it would be hard for his head not to be turned by a move to the Premiership.

Hull may not be a Chelsea or a Man United - but then its unlikely that any of the big six teams would go for a championship striker albeit a British one.

Hull may be a good option for Rhodes and 12 million may be just right for us...
