Paul Wheelock column: Paying off players is the correct but painful thing to do

Lancashire Telegraph: Dickson Etuhu Dickson Etuhu

SHORT-TERM pain for long-term gain goes the old adage – and Rovers will certainly be hoping it rings true following their decision to pay off two more players.

Coming to settlements with Dickson Etuhu and DJ Campbell is not a cause for celebration.

But if Rovers are to move forward – and, crucially, get anywhere near to meeting Financial Fair Play rules – then they have to rid themselves of the players whose contracts act as a painful reminder of the reckless financial decisions that were made following the club’s relegation from the Premier League in 2012.

In an ideal world Etuhu and Campbell would have been taken off Rovers’ hands.

But let’s face it there was never any possibility of clubs coming in and paying the duo what they were earning at Ewood Park.

So the decision to rip up their contracts was ultimately the correct one.

It is a decision, however, that will have come at a considerable cost.

And, judging by his dealings so far, it would appear it is restricting the funds Gary Bowyer has at his disposal to strengthen a squad that finished just two points shy of the play-offs last time out.

Both of the Rovers boss’ signings so far have been free transfers and the majority of players he has been linked with would not cost big fees, if any fee at all.

Compare that to the likes of Charlton and promoted Brentford who have already shelled out seven-figure sums on new recruits.

Little wonder, then, that Bowyer believes the Championship is going to be more competitive than ever. But he proved last season, given the chance, he can make relatively small amounts go far.

Craig Conway and Rudy Gestede were signed for around a combined £400,000.

How much the duo would be worth now? At least seven or eight times that amount.

But whoever Bowyer brings in he could do a lot worse than show his players a DVD of the USA’s performance in their heroic defeat to Belgium on Tuesday night.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s men are the team that has most caught the eye of Bowyer during the World Cup – and it is easy to see why with their astounding and inspirational work ethic and togetherness.

They showed in Brazil, against more illustrious opponents, just what you can do when you have a unified group.

Rovers certainly were that last season and they should be again this time around too, especially after the departure of players like Etuhu and Campbell who clearly had no futures at the club.

There are many examples of how togetherness can produce amazing results...Costa Rica topping the group of death against 3 teams of overpaid prima donnas and cannibals, France leaving out a couple of star players , Columbia being the best team at the tournament so far....as well as my second team, USA.
I'm happy for GB to use those examples but he should instill a winning mentality into the team, telling them they have the ability, skill, determination and teamwork to WIN the league.
I hope he gets all the boys fit during the preseason so we avoid niggly injuries and we can play a consistent side throughout the season who are in the top two from August to May.
Come on Rovers: Premier League Champions 1994-95 (do you want me to repeat that Dingles?:))

Unfortunately your plan to "start again the season after" will see you at the end of Parachute Payment road and about to take a sharp turn onto Administration Avenue.

It was all or nothing for promotion last time around I'm afraid and you failed miserable on all counts, not even reaching the absolute minimum requirement of 6th place.

The cost cutting exercises that have now begun in earnest, exactly as I predicted, will weaken you both financially and in terms of squad depth ensuring that you fall well short of being competitive in the Championship next season.

With further cost savings required after the staggering contract pay-offs this season and no further parachute payments coming in I can see the necessity for a complete downsizing to bring you in line with the FFP rules and a lifting of the transfer embargo.

League One is the only way forward for Blackburn Rovers.

With regards to Leon Best, unless he can secure a permanent transfer away from Rovers, I believe we should keep him as opposed to loaning him to a fellow Championship club, especially if it means paying a large percentage of his wage again. He showed at Sheffield Wednesday that he's still capable of doing the business at this level, so why should we strengthen a rival team's squad whilst paying for the pleasure?

If he could secure a loan to a Premier League side it would be a different story, but so long as they paid a fair chunk of his wage, anything less than 60% and I'd rather we kept him and told him to fight for his place.

No one wants him at full price though, because he's shoite. That's why you sent him out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday with them contributing just a sixth of his obscene wages.

Another weight around you necks bleeding you dry as FFP warms up ready for it's eagerly anticipated debut.

The cost cutting exercises that have now begun in earnest, exactly as I predicted, will weaken you both financially and in terms of squad depth ensuring that you fall well short of being competitive in the Championship next season.

With further cost savings required after the staggering contract pay-offs this season and no further parachute payments coming in I can see the necessity for a complete downsizing to bring you in line with the FFP rules and a lifting of the transfer embargo.

League One is the only way forward for Blackburn Rovers.
I thought you told us it was "all or nothing" the season before last!

and that Rhodes was being sold.

and we were going into administration

and FFP was going to ruin us

broken record
One who continually repeats the same statement with little variation, if any.
You had one season of adjustment following your shambolic relegation. The second season out of the top flight was intended by all at BRFC as the one in which you would regain your top flight status... a THIRD season in division 2 is by all accounts a financial disaster with FFP lacing its boots ready for the big kick-off.

Don't worry about us,you just concentrate on being Brendan's drum beater.
The way you bigged up yesterday's transfer activity made him all warm inside.
Reid,Sordell,Duff,Ba
ird,Kightly,Gilks and Bryson.The excitement you showed at that list was remarkable.
Brendan told me personally that he wishes to pass on his thanks.
He also said that Bryson was never a goer,i mean,he was never leaving Derby for Burnley was he really.

Well not really, Paul. if the players paid off quickly find other clubs, Blackburn Rovers receive nothing. Even had they they been allowed to leave on a free, Blackburn Rovers would have saved on any payoff.

It looks more like get players out to bring players in. It does not look like good commercial practice. Interest ad been expressed in both Etuhu and Goodwillie. All three released players do have clubs interested in them.

Yes, it does enable Bowyer to strengthen the squad, but it does represent a financial gamble.

Venky’s chickens have come home to roost big time. This is the price they now have to pay and what happens when you meddle in something you know nothing about.

They embraced the despicable Anderson and his equally despicable henchman as they hijacked the club and gorged themselves on the tsunami of money that is now awash in football. They smirked as they walked away from under Venky’s noses with their loot – leaving a mountainous trail of destruction and financial ruin behind them.

Now Venky’s are left to lick their wounds and reflect on how they were duped

The tragedy is that everyone could see it happening except our much-trumpeted Indian owners.

The dingles can gloat, but they should be thanking their lucky stars they weren’t the ones pillaged by a super-agent who lurks in the murky world of football.

Unfortunately your plan to "start again the season after" will see you at the end of Parachute Payment road and about to take a sharp turn onto Administration Avenue.

It was all or nothing for promotion last time around I'm afraid and you failed miserable on all counts, not even reaching the absolute minimum requirement of 6th place.

The cost cutting exercises that have now begun in earnest, exactly as I predicted, will weaken you both financially and in terms of squad depth ensuring that you fall well short of being competitive in the Championship next season.

With further cost savings required after the staggering contract pay-offs this season and no further parachute payments coming in I can see the necessity for a complete downsizing to bring you in line with the FFP rules and a lifting of the transfer embargo.

I thought you told us it was "all or nothing" the season before last!

and that Rhodes was being sold.

and we were going into administration

and FFP was going to ruin us

broken record
One who continually repeats the same statement with little variation, if any.
You had one season of adjustment following your shambolic relegation. The second season out of the top flight was intended by all at BRFC as the one in which you would regain your top flight status... a THIRD season in division 2 is by all accounts a financial disaster with FFP lacing its boots ready for the big kick-off.
So definitely this season then, you're sure this time ?

The squad is almost complete?

Wow, you have added the absolute quality of Varney and Brown to a crappy squad that didn't even trouble top six all last season, and have spent your entire transfer budget on paying off a series of expensive players that were bleeding your tinpot club dry. Yeah I am sure the rest of the league are really dreading Blackburn running away with the league.

Fact, Blackburn are going nowhere and as for the deluded simpleton above that predicts you will finish 1st or 2nd?? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, comedy gold.
