BLACKBURN Rovers have not accepted a bid for prized asset Jordan Rhodes from Hull City.

The Premier League outfit yesterday failed with an £8m offer for the £12m-rated striker.

But that has not deterred Hull, who are willing to pay a club record fee for Rhodes, and negotiations between the clubs are continuing.

And it is understood that the Tigers are willing to throw in one of their players as part of any proposed deal to take Rhodes to the KC Stadium.

One of those players is Hull boss Steve Bruce's son, defender Alex Bruce.

The 29-year-old, who can play at centre back, right back and in front of the defence, was on the books of Rovers as a youngster.

However he never made a first-team appearance for the club.

Rovers do not want to sell Rhodes, who has scored 53 goals in 99 games for the club following his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012, and they hoped to fend off potential suitors by handing the 24-year-old a new and improved five-year contract last month.

But that has not stopped the Tigers, whose assistant manager and former Rovers midfielder Steve Agnew is Rhodes’ uncle, from becoming the first club to table a formal bid for the Scotland international.

Hull's current club record signing is £8m midfielder Jake Livermore.

Alex Bruce was at the Rovers a few years ago and wasn't good enough why would we want him? We need to get quick young defenders and a natural goal scorer and I cannot see GB having the nous to do it,Mark Hughes hes not.

As ever this rag knows nothing new. They just recycle stories to fill the spaces. Sources in Hull though are probably more willing to allow things to be public knowledge as they are the buyers, sources closer to home would rather just hit you with a double whammy.

Alex Bruce is a decent enough defender As for Rhodes leaving, its bound to happen one day. Just hope theres enough time for you to bring someone in. Grstede looks like a better option as a loan striker anyway.
We dingles on the other hand can't sign anyone unless they are an ex bolton reserve and used to living in the north so know how sh1t life in Burnley can be.

Gary Bowyer and Venkys can go to Hell as far as they are concerned.

Literally that is that for them as far as I am concerned.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Never mind I am sure people will forget Rhodes time at the club as quick as they forgot how we lost to Burnley last season at Ewood.

I will continue to follow Rovers and support the players.

But for me. Bowyer and Venkys are not Blackburn Rovers and they can both go to hell.

Oh and before I get replies. If you don't think Bowyer is getting a say so in this sale you are insane.
If he wanted to he could put his job on the line and say Rhodes stays or I go. But he's more a Steve Kean than anyone cares to believe. Doesn't care as long as he gets his pay packet at the end of the month.

Typical of what we've now become - one step forward five steps back. The timing & the fact it's Hull City makes it so much harder to take. Had this deal been at the end of last season and been a bigger club than Hull, it would've been easier to accept.

Yes this shows we have no interest in being in the premiership again! Makes me sick!!
Bowyers comments in the media were a disgrace, inviting more bids. All he has to say is he signed a new contract last month not for sale. He has gone right down in my estimation the season is now over before it's started.
We were all so optimistic before the season with a settled squad, unbeaten run!! Then as I was so optimistic I went to ewood for the cup game expecting a cricket score, but I saw the manager picked a reserve team, I felt cheated! Then all pre season the merchandise sales and pitch are over Jordan then 3 games in to the season we sell him!!! You can all say take the 12 million but that guarantees we won't have any chance of promotion. Simple. By selling him now it's undone all the hard work that's gone on to create a feel good factor again! The fans will be booing in the terraces again when we can't score . We are a disgrace now. I know Gary bowyer could of done more to keep him it's not all down to the owners!! I guess staying will now be the goal this season

I can see where you are coming from but I am not sure that this will be Bowyers decision in the end. I am guessing (and it is a guess) that there is an exit amount (£12 million) which means that he can leave if he agrees to terms. Bowyer got him to sign terms for 5 years just over a month ago and I would guess he thought that was that and had him at least for another season. Bowyer will be as gutted as the fans for such a prolific striker to leave the club as it is going to make his job much tougher whether he can find another striker like Gestede (which he did buy) is questionable – did he strike lucky with the likes of him, Cairney, Conway and to some extent Marshall? I don’t know and if Rhodes goes we will only know in the next month or so. I personally am gutted about this and have resigned myself to him going.

You have got to be realistic. In stead of blaming it on Bowyer or venkys. They gave him a new contract. As if you can expect us to keep old of rhodes on more wages than any other player and with 12million and add ons being offered. Its been going to happen for ages. If it dors happen I hope its soon so we can carry on with the football.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

Im sick of Rovers fans just moaning. Thats why we crnt even fill our stadium and fans walk out before the end of every home game! Bring on the cherrie

Bowyer has daily access to the board and chairman of Blackburn Rovers football club.

If you think he doesn't have a say so in Rhodes sale you are sadly mistaken.

Doesn't care as long as he gets his pay packet at the end of the month.[/p][/quote]Thomas I can see where you are coming from but I am not sure that this will be Bowyers decision in the end. I am guessing (and it is a guess) that there is an exit amount (£12 million) which means that he can leave if he agrees to terms. Bowyer got him to sign terms for 5 years just over a month ago and I would guess he thought that was that and had him at least for another season. Bowyer will be as gutted as the fans for such a prolific striker to leave the club as it is going to make his job much tougher whether he can find another striker like Gestede (which he did buy) is questionable – did he strike lucky with the likes of him, Cairney, Conway and to some extent Marshall? I don’t know and if Rhodes goes we will only know in the next month or so. I personally am gutted about this and have resigned myself to him going.[/p][/quote]Bowyer has daily access to the board and chairman of Blackburn Rovers football club. If you think he doesn't have a say so in Rhodes sale you are sadly mistaken. Thomas Evans

The simple fact is. Having fan loved quality footballers at Blackburn Rovers with Bowyer as manager and Venkys as owners is like giving your family silverware to a crack addict when a crack dealer is living next door on one side and a pawn broker living next door on the other side.

Literally that is that for them as far as I am concerned.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Never mind I am sure people will forget Rhodes time at the club as quick as they forgot how we lost to Burnley last season at Ewood.

I will continue to follow Rovers and support the players.

But for me. Bowyer and Venkys are not Blackburn Rovers and they can both go to hell.

You have got to be realistic. In stead of blaming it on Bowyer or venkys. They gave him a new contract. As if you can expect us to keep old of rhodes on more wages than any other player and with 12million and add ons being offered. Its been going to happen for ages. If it dors happen I hope its soon so we can carry on with the football.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

Im sick of Rovers fans just moaning. Thats why we crnt even fill our stadium and fans walk out before the end of every home game! Bring on the cherrie
The reason we can't fill our stadium or hit the mid 20 thousands as we did do is because Venkys have made blunder after blunder after blunder. Selling off our better players. Bringing in rubbish players on high wages and then releasing them by mutual consent.

We have seen a systematic destruction of everything that was once good about the football club.

This sale has destroyed any chance of promotion we had this season and a main selling point of this football club.

I hope people realise that.

It really is a kick in the teeth to all the fans who bought the 'Rhodes' shirt just after he signed a new contract only a month ago.
What did Venkys say ? "Rhodes is not for sale." Those fans must feel betrayed.
As someone else said earlier just watch the **** hit the fan now. To those who defend the decision if we sell him they will be outnumbered ten to one. Like the earlier poster said "one step forward and five back.
Looks ss if it's becoming clear why Brown was signed now and some on here predicted this. I think they had every intention of selling Rhodes as long as the , money was right.

As ever this rag knows nothing new. They just recycle stories to fill the spaces. Sources in Hull though are probably more willing to allow things to be public knowledge as they are the buyers, sources closer to home would rather just hit you with a double whammy.

Never mind at least Boweyer had the vision to sign Varney. Lets see how much of the £12M GB spends- me thinks another bunch of freebies from lower leagues on the way ala Marrow, Judge Taylor and the list of mediocre squad players goes on.

Every player at every club has his price - and 12 million seems to be the price for Rhodes. No club is immune to receiving bids during a transfer window for their best players, no matter how big they are. And it does not matter what the managers or the fans think or say, if the price is right then off they go.

From outside of the club the view seems to be that this could be a very good piece of business for the club in these troubled financial times. The Rovers get a very decent fee for him, plus we get rid of Rhodes massive salary off the wages bill and we get an experienced defender in Alex Bruce. On top of that the club will also be in a position to bring another couple of players in and further strengthen the squad.

Rhodes goals will be much missed and lots of fans (me included) will feel let down by the club again, but I think most of us who have supported the Rovers for many years will have seen this happen so many times (even when we were in the prem) to understand that this is not personal and it is certainly not Gary Bowyers fault or even the boards, it is just football being football. Happens at all clubs all the time.

Personally I think Gestede is more of a complete striker than Rhodes anyway and a suitable replacement would be a pacey striker that can compliment Gestede because quite a few of the leagues defences have got Rhodes sussed. The problem with if he goes is that majority of other proven championship strikers have moved to rival teams in the league.

Personally if the club were to sell for anything over £12m, minus clauses leaving about £8m, then spend some of them on trying to get Michael Keane back in on loan, try a bid for Ricardo Vaz Te of West Ham and a creative attacking midfielder. They would be the sort of actions i'd expect to be taken if the club were to sell and still aimed to be promoted.

Literally that is that for them as far as I am concerned.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Never mind I am sure people will forget Rhodes time at the club as quick as they forgot how we lost to Burnley last season at Ewood.

I will continue to follow Rovers and support the players.

But for me. Bowyer and Venkys are not Blackburn Rovers and they can both go to hell.

Oh and before I get replies. If you don't think Bowyer is getting a say so in this sale you are insane.
If he wanted to he could put his job on the line and say Rhodes stays or I go. But he's more a Steve Kean than anyone cares to believe. Doesn't care as long as he gets his pay packet at the end of the month.
You have got to be realistic. In stead of blaming it on Bowyer or venkys. They gave him a new contract. As if you can expect us to keep old of rhodes on more wages than any other player and with 12million and add ons being offered. Its been going to happen for ages. If it dors happen I hope its soon so we can carry on with the football.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

Im sick of Rovers fans just moaning. Thats why we crnt even fill our stadium and fans walk out before the end of every home game! Bring on the cherrie
The reason we can't fill our stadium or hit the mid 20 thousands as we did do is because Venkys have made blunder after blunder after blunder. Selling off our better players. Bringing in rubbish players on high wages and then releasing them by mutual consent.

We have seen a systematic destruction of everything that was once good about the football club.

This sale has destroyed any chance of promotion we had this season and a main selling point of this football club.

I hope people realise that.
I recall Burnley selling their star striker Charlie Austin at about this time last year and look what happened to them? It is completely wrong to assume it is guaranteed doom and gloom.
But do you have a Danny Ings and Sam Vokes partnership to fall back on ?
Only time will tell I suppose, depending on whether at least some of the fee is reinvested. As you lot proved last year, it is never about one man and always about the team performing as a unit.

The new Blackburn shirt cost £50... £50!!! That is a large amount of money for a lot of people. Some people like to get a player's name on the back of their shirts, and go for the star players, and therefore go for the name Rhodes. If he leaves now, then the Venky's will be making a very nice profit on their behalf. Therefore, when Rhodes goes, I think they should offer every single person who got Rhodes on the back of their shirt either a refund or a new shirt.

Every player at every club has his price - and 12 million seems to be the price for Rhodes. No club is immune to receiving bids during a transfer window for their best players, no matter how big they are. And it does not matter what the managers or the fans think or say, if the price is right then off they go.

From outside of the club the view seems to be that this could be a very good piece of business for the club in these troubled financial times. The Rovers get a very decent fee for him, plus we get rid of Rhodes massive salary off the wages bill and we get an experienced defender in Alex Bruce. On top of that the club will also be in a position to bring another couple of players in and further strengthen the squad.

Rhodes goals will be much missed and lots of fans (me included) will feel let down by the club again, but I think most of us who have supported the Rovers for many years will have seen this happen so many times (even when we were in the prem) to understand that this is not personal and it is certainly not Gary Bowyers fault or even the boards, it is just football being football. Happens at all clubs all the time.

Make no mistake about it, it's tough to see Jordan leave. However when you look at this rationally it's a good deal. Alex Bruce is a very, very underrated defender and at this level will be one of the better few in the league. He's the sort of player we've been crying out for, for months and will be a very welcome addition. It's rumoured, but unconfirmed, that the other two being offered are Stephen Quinn and Yannick Sagbo. Quinn would be my pick of the 3. Have very fond memories from his Sheffield United days. He has a fantastic left foot to help chip in with the odd goal, has great set piece delivery but most of all can act as lynchpin in keeping possession. He uses the ball very intelligently and will take a huge weight off Cairney's shoulders as he holds our midfield together completely. Sagbo I've only seen play the odd game so my opinion on him is not valid enough. One thing I do know however is he has a lot of pace, another thing we are slightly short of, and he will use that to run in-behind and stretch defences. Add this to the ludicrous money Hull are about to pay us and we've got as good a deal as we can hope for.

One other thought on this Rhodes has just signed (and let’s use figures that have been banded around) a contract for 5 years at £50,000.00 per week that is a guaranteed £13,000,000.00 for him assuming we pay him 52 weeks of the year. So Rhodes will surely be asking for a similar guarantee on this by way of a shorter contract and more money or the same money? OK he may take a drop to play Premier League and European football but even if we agree to allow Hull to talk to Rhodes after an offer of £12,000,000.00 we are still looking at more money on his wages than the transfer fee? Even if it is £40K he has signed his contract for (we don’t know) it is still a mind blowing £10.5 million. Having thought about this not sure that the fat lady has sung just yet

Alex Bruce is a decent enough defender As for Rhodes leaving, its bound to happen one day. Just hope theres enough time for you to bring someone in. Grstede looks like a better option as a loan striker anyway.
We dingles on the other hand can't sign anyone unless they are an ex bolton reserve and used to living in the north so know how sh1t life in Burnley can be.
Alex Bruce is an absolute donkey you fool. Like his dad but enable to defend. We don't want him at Ewood, we've got enough donkey's, we're not a donkey sanctuary.

Every fee and wage is just the papers guessing or agents trying to unsettle for a transfer fee. And this is a first more dingles than rovers fans on here or maybe just one talking to himself. This is really hurting them one of our players could be sold for more than their entire team and grounds value.

Under normal circumstances it might be funny but, when you consider they will make money out of this deal and Ings is leaving us for free, it kinda takes the shine off it doesn't it?
Only trouble is we can't spend a penny of the money received due to FFP.

It's an absolute sickener. We're effectively giving away a 25-goal a season striker for nothing in return!

NINETY NINE AND OUT.


Jordan Rhodes (pic above) will not play his 100th game for Blackburn Rovers this weekend v Bournemouth.
Instead he will be Premiership bound for Hull City.
If Hull meet Rovers £12 Million valuation, I will drive him their myself !. it is a fantastic piece of business.
Despite Rhodes 53 goals in 99 games, Rovers need the money to help them meet their FPP requirements. Rovers are woefully short of making those requirements due to the Kean and Anderson ‘Spending Frenzy’ in 2012.
Do not blame Gary Bowyer for Rovers predicament. Bowyer has gone a long way to putting wrongs to right.
Rovers face the financial abyss because of two men, Kean and Anderson.
Why the Rovers owners do not just come out and make it public I don’t know.
Cardiff City have. Owner Vincent Tan was taken for a financial ride by his ex-manager Malky McKay and ex- Director of Football Ian Moody. And has said so.
Cardiff losses pale into comparison compared to the losses Venky’s incurred under Kean. Venky’s foolishly trusted Kean and Anderson. Kean’s management-ship has threatened the very future and existence of the club.
That’s why Rhodes has to go.
Money is still owed to Huddersfield, and they will take a cut of any profit in the sell-on price. But Rovers will have money to help balance the books and another large wage of the books.
Rovers are in a strong position to negotiate the sale of Rhodes hence the new 5 year contract he was recently given.
Rhodes has more than re-paid the faith Rovers have shown in him. And has probably kept Rovers in the Championship. But ‘Needs Must’.
Possibly Rovers have had his best years ? I am a little surprised a Premiership Club wants him. I do not think he has the necessary quality, I hope I am wrong. Even Gordon Strachan does not select him for Scotland. Maybe I am wrong and Rhodes will surprise me in the Prem.
If Rhodes does go, and he will, all is not doom and gloom. Burnley sold their star striker this time last year. Relegation was forecast by all and sundry, and look what happened to them.
Whatever happens at the Rovers, fans must get behind Bowyer. He is not the villain, he is our salvation.
In November 2011 Rovers fans embraced the Venky takeover, and the sacking of Sam Allardyce. Having done my due diligence I told everyone it would ‘End In Tears’- it is well documented – Nobody listened – The useless Lancashire Telegraph even banned me – so do not keep moaning now. Embrace Bowyer and his team.
You never know maybe Eric Kinder will unearth a ‘gem’ from the U/21.
Keep on hoping. Keep on supporting. Rhodes is going and Bowyer is staying. There is no other way.
It is not a question of promotion to the Premiership. That is for the future. It is all about the very survival of Blackburn Rovers. That is why Rhodes is being sold.
Don’t believe me ?. look at Leeds Utd over the past few years, they have gone from crisis to crisis. Look at Crystal Palace who almost went out of existence twice.
Both those clubs financial problems pale into significance compared to the mess Kean and Anderson left Blackburn Rovers in.
Think about it !.

It’s quite likely that Rhodes signed the new contract to inflate his wages, knowing that an EPL club would come in for him and would at least have to match his current wages. His agent will have orchestrated that and of course Rovers had no option really.

Literally that is that for them as far as I am concerned.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Never mind I am sure people will forget Rhodes time at the club as quick as they forgot how we lost to Burnley last season at Ewood.

I will continue to follow Rovers and support the players.

But for me. Bowyer and Venkys are not Blackburn Rovers and they can both go to hell.

Oh and before I get replies. If you don't think Bowyer is getting a say so in this sale you are insane.
If he wanted to he could put his job on the line and say Rhodes stays or I go. But he's more a Steve Kean than anyone cares to believe. Doesn't care as long as he gets his pay packet at the end of the month.
What an absolute weapon you are. Do you not think jordan Rhodes May have some say in where his future lies?! The contract was obviously signed in order to get more money. We are getting good money for a player who has give us good service. Get over it and move on.
I think most people are getting a bit sick of having to get over it and move on by now,I mean this as been going on for years now and is beginning to have a very negative effect on the most diehard of supporters,how are we ever going to get a manager that can by whatever means galvanise a side it take us anywhere with this lot in charge when thet don't understand what the hell the game is about,I don't know what the answer is

You have got to be realistic. In stead of blaming it on Bowyer or venkys. They gave him a new contract. As if you can expect us to keep old of rhodes on more wages than any other player and with 12million and add ons being offered. Its been going to happen for ages. If it dors happen I hope its soon so we can carry on with the football.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

Im sick of Rovers fans just moaning. Thats why we crnt even fill our stadium and fans walk out before the end of every home game! Bring on the cherrie
The reason we can't fill our stadium or hit the mid 20 thousands as we did do is because Venkys have made blunder after blunder after blunder. Selling off our better players. Bringing in rubbish players on high wages and then releasing them by mutual consent.

We have seen a systematic destruction of everything that was once good about the football club.

This sale has destroyed any chance of promotion we had this season and a main selling point of this football club.

I hope people realise that.
I recall Burnley selling their star striker Charlie Austin at about this time last year and look what happened to them? It is completely wrong to assume it is guaranteed doom and gloom.
But Burnley had Ings and Vokes to replace Austin. Better get Best back from Derby.

NINETY NINE AND OUT.


Jordan Rhodes (pic above) will not play his 100th game for Blackburn Rovers this weekend v Bournemouth.
Instead he will be Premiership bound for Hull City.
If Hull meet Rovers £12 Million valuation, I will drive him their myself !. it is a fantastic piece of business.
Despite Rhodes 53 goals in 99 games, Rovers need the money to help them meet their FPP requirements. Rovers are woefully short of making those requirements due to the Kean and Anderson ‘Spending Frenzy’ in 2012.
Do not blame Gary Bowyer for Rovers predicament. Bowyer has gone a long way to putting wrongs to right.
Rovers face the financial abyss because of two men, Kean and Anderson.
Why the Rovers owners do not just come out and make it public I don’t know.
Cardiff City have. Owner Vincent Tan was taken for a financial ride by his ex-manager Malky McKay and ex- Director of Football Ian Moody. And has said so.
Cardiff losses pale into comparison compared to the losses Venky’s incurred under Kean. Venky’s foolishly trusted Kean and Anderson. Kean’s management-ship has threatened the very future and existence of the club.
That’s why Rhodes has to go.
Money is still owed to Huddersfield, and they will take a cut of any profit in the sell-on price. But Rovers will have money to help balance the books and another large wage of the books.
Rovers are in a strong position to negotiate the sale of Rhodes hence the new 5 year contract he was recently given.
Rhodes has more than re-paid the faith Rovers have shown in him. And has probably kept Rovers in the Championship. But ‘Needs Must’.
Possibly Rovers have had his best years ? I am a little surprised a Premiership Club wants him. I do not think he has the necessary quality, I hope I am wrong. Even Gordon Strachan does not select him for Scotland. Maybe I am wrong and Rhodes will surprise me in the Prem.
If Rhodes does go, and he will, all is not doom and gloom. Burnley sold their star striker this time last year. Relegation was forecast by all and sundry, and look what happened to them.
Whatever happens at the Rovers, fans must get behind Bowyer. He is not the villain, he is our salvation.
In November 2011 Rovers fans embraced the Venky takeover, and the sacking of Sam Allardyce. Having done my due diligence I told everyone it would ‘End In Tears’- it is well documented – Nobody listened – The useless Lancashire Telegraph even banned me – so do not keep moaning now. Embrace Bowyer and his team.
You never know maybe Eric Kinder will unearth a ‘gem’ from the U/21.
Keep on hoping. Keep on supporting. Rhodes is going and Bowyer is staying. There is no other way.
It is not a question of promotion to the Premiership. That is for the future. It is all about the very survival of Blackburn Rovers. That is why Rhodes is being sold.
Don’t believe me ?. look at Leeds Utd over the past few years, they have gone from crisis to crisis. Look at Crystal Palace who almost went out of existence twice.
Both those clubs financial problems pale into significance compared to the mess Kean and Anderson left Blackburn Rovers in.
Think about it !.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Thomas
I can see where you are coming from but I am not sure that this will be Bowyers decision in the end. I am guessing (and it is a guess) that there is an exit amount (£12 million) which means that he can leave if he agrees to terms. Bowyer got him to sign terms for 5 years just over a month ago and I would guess he thought that was that and had him at least for another season. Bowyer will be as gutted as the fans for such a prolific striker to leave the club as it is going to make his job much tougher whether he can find another striker like Gestede (which he did buy) is questionable – did he strike lucky with the likes of him, Cairney, Conway and to some extent Marshall? I don’t know and if Rhodes goes we will only know in the next month or so. I personally am gutted about this and have resigned myself to him going.
Bowyer has daily access to the board and chairman of Blackburn Rovers football club.

If you think he doesn't have a say so in Rhodes sale you are sadly mistaken.
And if you think we really have any choice but to sell when a premier league team comes along then you too are sadly mistaken.

We are now a second tier club, we've always had to sell our best players but now we have even less power to tempt them to stay

If he goes he goes, i wish him well. But i wish our team better and ill be there as usual on saturday as always to cheer them on.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

The reason we can't fill our stadium or hit the mid 20 thousands as we did do is because Venkys have made blunder after blunder after blunder. Selling off our better players. Bringing in rubbish players on high wages and then releasing them by mutual consent.

We have seen a systematic destruction of everything that was once good about the football club.

This sale has destroyed any chance of promotion we had this season and a main selling point of this football club.

I hope people realise that.
I recall Burnley selling their star striker Charlie Austin at about this time last year and look what happened to them? It is completely wrong to assume it is guaranteed doom and gloom.
But Burnley had Ings and Vokes to replace Austin. Better get Best back from Derby.
Two players that had scored a combined 10 goals in the league in their careers before last season. We just n3ed to hope we can pull a similar rabbit out the hat

RoversNorthEast: "...how much are rovers fans expected to take?"

Anything and everything that is served up. It is the same for all fans of every club, of course, some have it better than others.

A number of salient points have already been highlighted by other posters...:
1) Championship clubs are 'feeder' clubs for Premier League teams, the system is set up that way to ensure the best go to the premier to keep that circus going.
2) Selling one's star striker is not the end of the world, but it takes a manager having great acumen to work around this issue. Sean Dyche did very well for the Clarets after Austin was sold by utilising both Ings and Vokes as paired strikers. Bowyer may yet resort to such (and probably needs to). When the star that lit the heavens goes out, other stars get to shine in its place.
3) Both Burnley and Blackburn are small clubs, positioned in economically drained areas. Neither club is going to attract really big names, unless they are coming to the end of their careers.
4) Both Burnley and Blackburn are yoyo clubs, who may make into the Premier League on occasions, but most probably won't stay in it beyond a season.

Accepting these facts and the realism of the situation will help fans come to terms with the Zeitgeist. We are not the only two clubs in this situation, look at Blackpool, look at Preston, look at Leeds, a far bigger club than both Burnley and Blackburn.

If Rhodes does go to Hull, or some other club, it will be up to Bowyer to deal with the situation positively. He needs to get more attack minded, and instil more possession football. During the Cardiff game, elements were seen that showed he can get it from the team you've got. Gestede will get you goals, so will Conway and Cairney, In them you already have the making of a three-man attacking force.

I don't think Blackburn will make first or second place, but you're certainly good enough to reach the play offs, with or without Rhodes, and that has got to be Blackburn's ambition this season...and that is down to Bowyer.

UTC's!

GB should tell them that he wants none of this but unfortunately he is not an out and out winner and will just go with the flow, Bruce is a 30 year old injury prone has-been and is worth nothing. GB has signed two or three good players but he has also filled the club with a lot of average or not up to it players and is building a squad that will struggle to be a mid table team let alone one pushing for promotion. Venky's should not entertain this if they really mean business but it is obvious this is going to be a done deal with Rhodes wanting to go leaving us no time to bring proper players in that will benefit the Club. Bruce was good to us with Cairney but now he is screwing us by not payer enough for Rhodes and dumping his son off on us at this late stage of the transfer window. Very concerned.

We dingles on the other hand can't sign anyone unless they are an ex bolton reserve and used to living in the north so know how sh1t life in Burnley can be.
Alex Bruce is an absolute donkey you fool. Like his dad but enable to defend. We don't want him at Ewood, we've got enough donkey's, we're not a donkey sanctuary.

Basic fact's are that if Rhodes goes we're taking a one way trip to League One, and the Alex Bruce's of this world are only going to speed up our departure.

Another sad day in the history of Blackburn Rovers and another stick with which those darn Clarets can beat us with.

Get Bowyer out before he can do any more damage!

JACK WALKER will be turning in his grave God bless him , I once had a conversation with the great Ronnie Clayton and he said to me that when he played for rovers he got paid £2 a week. While turning out for England he was paid £11 per game Money wasn't a isue you played for the BADGE on your shirt with pride. You ask ANY professional footballer now hand on heart who think the same and I guarantee not one!!
When Alan shearer left rovers for Newcastle that wasn't his 1st choice he wanted to go to Manchester United to guarantee silver wear and be a Manchester untied legend but the late Jack walker said I will sell you to any club in the world but not man utd I'll leave you to rot in the reserves so he opted for Newcastle and what did he win?? You don't need to playing at the highest level to be a legand or kids of today to follow there hero I remember. Steve kingdon ( Burnley) Howard Kendal (Rovers) Frank Worthington (Bolton) Ian rush ( accy Stanley) lol to name but a few BUT WHO gives a toss. MONEY TALKS.

Remember when Shearer was sold, Sutton, sherwood, berg, hendry, batty, Simon barker and many many more? We have always been a selling club and always will be whether big jack owned us or the venkys or whoever may follow. The fact is that every player has his price and no matter who that player may be, he is never bigger than the club.

Yes this could (probably will) damage our season but we will see very soon what, if any, contingencies we have in place. If we have anything about us we will have a potential replacement lined up, may be that gb has already looked at possible loans?

What I care about more than anything else, including premier league football, beating burnley or winning a trophy is that my club is still there for me and my family to support. Selling Rhodes May just help to ensure the future of our great club. I am RTID no matter who owns us.

They would only give permission for him to speak if the bid was accepted. Irvine has repeatedly said he is not for sale so why, you newest member of the Horsesh1t Brigade, would he have us speak to him?

Engage your brain next time you type muppet.
I think WBA would sell him but your offers have been that pathetic as they have been for every player you have bid for he told you where to go you six fingered dingle Rovers obsessed idiot!!!

Under normal circumstances it might be funny but, when you consider they will make money out of this deal and Ings is leaving us for free, it kinda takes the shine off it doesn't it?
Only trouble is we can't spend a penny of the money received due to FFP.

It's an absolute sickener. We're effectively giving away a 25-goal a season striker for nothing in return!

Just been on the Hull Daily Mail online and it seems the general consensus amongst the Hull fans is that Alex Bruce is well thought of and they would be sorry to see him go. Not seen him play myself so can't comment but the fans are usually a good judge of a player.
If Rhodes does go Bruce could be the answer to our defensive problems. Lots of Premier League experience so the Championship should be no trouble for him as he's been there as well.

Yes but Bruce has fallen down the pecking order a bit but according to the fans has never let them down when called upon. Does he want regular football ? If so he might consider a move.

Nothing in football is up to the fans. Everything is out of our hands,except giving the team support. If he wants regular football he might come,if its down to wages,my guess it will be a loan deal. Do we really want a player that would rather not be here?

Well if he doesn't want to be here he won't come and that could scupper the Rhodes deal, fine by me.I agree we only want him if he wants to be here.

If he is on the bench tomorrow, (no doubt the message will be he has a slight knock!) I fear a deal is close to being done, sure Hull will want to insist he doesn't play to protect their potential prize.

Oh at least try and understand it. 8 mil plus for Rhodes will help us in the long run, that's why Bowyer has brought in more front men. Venkys screwed up - again deal with it, they, nor us could foresee FFP, now we are hindered by it. What do you want- let them pour another 10 mil in and then see the rules drag us back years further. I'm afraid the championship is all we can expect for a while, unless we get a squad capable of a little magic, it's the better of two evils, and I for one pray Venkys don't suddenly pull out and leave us wanting.

NINETY NINE AND OUT.


Jordan Rhodes (pic above) will not play his 100th game for Blackburn Rovers this weekend v Bournemouth.
Instead he will be Premiership bound for Hull City.
If Hull meet Rovers £12 Million valuation, I will drive him their myself !. it is a fantastic piece of business.
Despite Rhodes 53 goals in 99 games, Rovers need the money to help them meet their FPP requirements. Rovers are woefully short of making those requirements due to the Kean and Anderson ‘Spending Frenzy’ in 2012.
Do not blame Gary Bowyer for Rovers predicament. Bowyer has gone a long way to putting wrongs to right.
Rovers face the financial abyss because of two men, Kean and Anderson.
Why the Rovers owners do not just come out and make it public I don’t know.
Cardiff City have. Owner Vincent Tan was taken for a financial ride by his ex-manager Malky McKay and ex- Director of Football Ian Moody. And has said so.
Cardiff losses pale into comparison compared to the losses Venky’s incurred under Kean. Venky’s foolishly trusted Kean and Anderson. Kean’s management-ship has threatened the very future and existence of the club.
That’s why Rhodes has to go.
Money is still owed to Huddersfield, and they will take a cut of any profit in the sell-on price. But Rovers will have money to help balance the books and another large wage of the books.
Rovers are in a strong position to negotiate the sale of Rhodes hence the new 5 year contract he was recently given.
Rhodes has more than re-paid the faith Rovers have shown in him. And has probably kept Rovers in the Championship. But ‘Needs Must’.
Possibly Rovers have had his best years ? I am a little surprised a Premiership Club wants him. I do not think he has the necessary quality, I hope I am wrong. Even Gordon Strachan does not select him for Scotland. Maybe I am wrong and Rhodes will surprise me in the Prem.
If Rhodes does go, and he will, all is not doom and gloom. Burnley sold their star striker this time last year. Relegation was forecast by all and sundry, and look what happened to them.
Whatever happens at the Rovers, fans must get behind Bowyer. He is not the villain, he is our salvation.
In November 2011 Rovers fans embraced the Venky takeover, and the sacking of Sam Allardyce. Having done my due diligence I told everyone it would ‘End In Tears’- it is well documented – Nobody listened – The useless Lancashire Telegraph even banned me – so do not keep moaning now. Embrace Bowyer and his team.
You never know maybe Eric Kinder will unearth a ‘gem’ from the U/21.
Keep on hoping. Keep on supporting. Rhodes is going and Bowyer is staying. There is no other way.
It is not a question of promotion to the Premiership. That is for the future. It is all about the very survival of Blackburn Rovers. That is why Rhodes is being sold.
Don’t believe me ?. look at Leeds Utd over the past few years, they have gone from crisis to crisis. Look at Crystal Palace who almost went out of existence twice.
Both those clubs financial problems pale into significance compared to the mess Kean and Anderson left Blackburn Rovers in.
Think about it !.

Very, very good assessment from Reg as to how Venkys have wrecked this club. However, it will probably be lost on most of the numpties who come on here defending the Venkys. They make Turf Moor Tom look like one of the better posters, which he is by the way.

I'm gutted, but you know what, good luck to Jordan he is a very humble young man and who can blame him for wanting premiership football.
he has had two seasons with the Rovers and helped us stay in the championship, it was inevitable that he would move on if not this season it would be next.
whether he plays tomorrow or not I will still be at Ewood cheering on my beloved Rovers because they are in my heart and who can tell what will happen, I trust Gary Bowyer to sort it out, he also loves this club and I'm sure he won't want to let the fans down, trust me he knows what he is doing he's just not allowed to tell us yet!

What happens if the two clubs agree a fee,then Rhodes doesn't want to move ?. Can he be forced out? Would Rovers be in breach of contract? can't see G.B. sticking him in the reserves.
Rhodes qualified his statement regarding "wanting to stay at Ewood for life" after the new contract he signed with "as long as I am wanted here".

The fans want him to say.

I wouldn't even offer odds that GB want's him to stay, he has said just that.

I am pretty certain that Venky's want him to stay after all they have invested a huge amount of money in him and always stated that there is no need to sell our best players.

But at the end of the day Venky's have been caught with their pants down regarding FFP and an offer of £12 million plus add ons would really tempt me if I was in their position, they have to get their house in order or the only way forward is down.

It's disappointing for all of us but at the end of the day this great club has to survive, and selling Rhodes might just give us an edge off the field, where our greatest battle ever is about to start.

Rhodes was our ONLY hope of anything resembling a top half finish and I'm sorry to say that without him it's likely to be every man for himself. Any interest in our players will see heads turned and transfer requests handed in. I'm quite sure that there are already some of our players agents keeping an eye on developments and waiting to get their boys out as soon as Rhodes does one.

So here we are again. Another day in the life of the Burnley troll wasted on the Rovers pages.

Your last post on yesterdays Rovers article was at 00.15 this morning. I presume you then went to service your sister/mother. You were back posting at 08.15 this morning, and you've been on ALL DAY again. This post was made at 23.46, and I'll bet you post again before you get back in bed with your sister/mother. Tomorrow will be no different.

Normally I'd feel sorry for such a pathetic specimen as yourself, but I don't, as your sad pathetic existence is entirely self inflicted. You really do need professional help.

Rhodes was our ONLY hope of anything resembling a top half finish and I'm sorry to say that without him it's likely to be every man for himself. Any interest in our players will see heads turned and transfer requests handed in. I'm quite sure that there are already some of our players agents keeping an eye on developments and waiting to get their boys out as soon as Rhodes does one.

So here we are again. Another day in the life of the Burnley troll wasted on the Rovers pages.

Your last post on yesterdays Rovers article was at 00.15 this morning. I presume you then went to service your sister/mother. You were back posting at 08.15 this morning, and you've been on ALL DAY again. This post was made at 23.46, and I'll bet you post again before you get back in bed with your sister/mother. Tomorrow will be no different.

Normally I'd feel sorry for such a pathetic specimen as yourself, but I don't, as your sad pathetic existence is entirely self inflicted. You really do need professional help.
Is it all this talk of Jordan leaving us that's got you so angry?

I'm not actually on here all day everyday as you well know. I do have a life, which is more than be said for you stalking me on-line and logging the times of my posts. That's rather worrying behaviour.

You see the thing is, I tend to pop in and out, and when I'm not here I'm round at yer mam's. So when you don't hear from me you know what I'm up to.

Chin up.

What happens if the two clubs agree a fee,then Rhodes doesn't want to move ?. Can he be forced out? Would Rovers be in breach of contract? can't see G.B. sticking him in the reserves.
Rhodes qualified his statement regarding "wanting to stay at Ewood for life" after the new contract he signed with "as long as I am wanted here".

The fans want him to say.

I wouldn't even offer odds that GB want's him to stay, he has said just that.

I am pretty certain that Venky's want him to stay after all they have invested a huge amount of money in him and always stated that there is no need to sell our best players.

But at the end of the day Venky's have been caught with their pants down regarding FFP and an offer of £12 million plus add ons would really tempt me if I was in their position, they have to get their house in order or the only way forward is down.

It's disappointing for all of us but at the end of the day this great club has to survive, and selling Rhodes might just give us an edge off the field, where our greatest battle ever is about to start.
Big rumours tonight,Nick,that Venkys will say tomorrow that he's going nowhere.
And when you woke up you realised it was just a bad dream. Bye bye Jordan.

Unfortunately I don't think we'll get anyone in. Bowyer has done well to steady the ship, signed a few decent players and shipped some of the deadwood out but he is not the man to take us to the next level. We need a braver manager who is willing to take risks to try and win a game rather than one who is happy to defend and hold on for a point. With our current set up we are a top ten side, with a braver manager and a couple of additions I think we could go up.

Literally that is that for them as far as I am concerned.

It was bad enough last season that we lost to Burnley at Ewood, but Bowyer's insistence to play a system that has left Rhodes obviously wanting to leave is a joke.

He has managed to take one of the strongest midfields and frontlines in Conway Evans Cairney Marshall - Gestede Rhodes and shuffle it about to make it look poor.
Insisting on playing Williamson in the Center, Cairney on the wing and dumping Marshall on the bench.

This has left a very pro Gestede game but a very anti-Rhodes game hence why he hasn't scored so far this season.

Bowyer is now deciding in his infinite wisdom to trade in Rhodes for £12 million and Alex Bruce, a CB who has a history of back problems and is 30 years old next month.

I literally know fans of Rovers who have said they have lost interest in the club because of the way it is conducting itself.

Plastering Jordan allover merchandise and encouraging people to buy the new shirts with his name on the back, t-shirts saying "Scores When He Wants" and getting season tickets on the premise of a promotion push when selling Rhodes on what is quite frankly on the cheap is tantamount to a failure under the trades descriptions act and a massive MASSIVE PR blunder.

Never mind I am sure people will forget Rhodes time at the club as quick as they forgot how we lost to Burnley last season at Ewood.

I will continue to follow Rovers and support the players.

But for me. Bowyer and Venkys are not Blackburn Rovers and they can both go to hell.

Oh and before I get replies. If you don't think Bowyer is getting a say so in this sale you are insane.
If he wanted to he could put his job on the line and say Rhodes stays or I go. But he's more a Steve Kean than anyone cares to believe. Doesn't care as long as he gets his pay packet at the end of the month.
You have got to be realistic. In stead of blaming it on Bowyer or venkys. They gave him a new contract. As if you can expect us to keep old of rhodes on more wages than any other player and with 12million and add ons being offered. Its been going to happen for ages. If it dors happen I hope its soon so we can carry on with the football.

All the best to rhodes and Im sure he will score goals and I hope he does.

Hopefully we can start to play as a team! Instead of relying on his goals and other players need to step up like cairney is doing.

Im sick of Rovers fans just moaning. Thats why we crnt even fill our stadium and fans walk out before the end of every home game! Bring on the cherrie
Quite right, it beggars belief how some/many think we have the right to Prem status!
We are a relatively small northern town club vying against many much bigger clubs out there who also desire to get in there.
All need to put to the back of their minds the glorious 90's, as that was a fortunate period in our history never to be repeated by us or any other similar sized club.
Anyone with an ounce of sense should be able to understand the financial mechanics of running a football club in these times.
Despite what many seem to think we were never going to gain a significant windfall from the onward sale of JR, given the fee we paid.
You can be sure that JR has a release valuation that all that need to know will know, and its just a case of Hull, or whoever matching that valuation.
GB will do what he feels is best for the club and will be under no illusions of what course of actions are necessary, especially in meeting FFP targets. Like anyone else in football, or any other business anywhere, he just has to deal with it.
