Scorned Hull boss Bruce says Rovers striker Rhodes will be 'disappointed' move didn't come off

BLACKBURN Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes will be ‘disappointed’ his big money move to Hull City is off.

That is the opinion of Hull boss Steve Bruce after he finally admitted defeat in his bid to sign the £12m-rated hitman.

MORE TOP STORIES:

The rivals clubs were locked in talks over a possible deal for Rhodes until Saturday morning when Rovers owners Venky’s brought an abrupt end to the negotiations and insisted they had no intention of selling.

That did not stop reports from suggesting that the Tigers would not give up in their pursuit of the prolific forward.

But after Venky’s made it clear that their stance over Rhodes had not changed, Bruce yesterday conceded that any hope the Premier League outfit had of making the 24-year-old their club-record recruit was now ‘dead and buried’.

And the former Manchester United defender also expressed his sadness for Rhodes whose professionalism throughout the speculation has earned the praise of his manager, team-mates and fans.

“It’s dead and buried,” said Bruce, left.

“We got an indication from Blackburn that they were willing to do a deal and that obviously changed in 24 hours. That’s their prerogative.

“If they’d have said that to start with – that he wasn’t for sale no matter what we wanted to do – then fine, we’ll walk away.

“But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he’s not for sale, so we’ll move on to the next one.”

Bruce has now turned his attention to Uruguay international Abel Hernandez.

But he refused to name his latest target after the ‘debacle on Jordan Rhodes’.

Bruce added: “It gets into the public domain and all of a sudden it’s not going to happen.

“It’s disappointing for everybody concerned, but more disappointing, I would presume, for somebody like Jordan.”

Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson has no doubt that Rhodes has what it takes to go on and play in the Premier League.

Former England star Robinson, who is set to make his 200th appearance for the club at Wolves on Saturday (3pm), said: “You can always rely on him for a goal. He is a goal poacher and his record stands for itself.

“I think he could do it at Premier League level, whether that is here or with somebody else.”

Rovers, meanwhile, have bolstered their goalkeeping ranks by signing Ryan Crump from Liverpool.

But the 18-year-old, who has signed a one-year deal, will not provide competition for Robinson.

Instead the Scotland U17s international will go straight into Eric Kinder’s U21s set-up.

So Bruce still hasn't given up and this is his last desperate attempt at pleading publicly for Rhodes to hand in a transfer request. We may well end up getting less in January or future transfer windows but surely it's worth hanging on to him for now in having a good go this year at making the top flight.

Depressing? How bizarre! A real case of pan calling kettle black if ever I heard one. Steve Bruce is simply telling it how it is, and, as Jordan's uncle is the assistant manager at our club, I'd say he has a pretty good idea of how the young striker feels.

Anyway we'll carry on regardless and watch Rhodes sign for either us or another PL club in the future, at a much reduced fee as Blackburn struggle to deal with FFP. You should have taken the money when it was on offer, but then again this is Blackburn, when did they last make a good decision?!

So now we're left with an unhappy player on the books draining us of £2.5m a year in wages. What a joke.

Given the disastrous financial news released yesterday we need to be shipping him out ASAP for the maximum amount possible and the failure of Venky's to do so has put our very existence into question. Rhodes value between now and January when we have to sell him may now drop, we risk him picking up injury or a loss of form due to depression and could ultimately lose out on millions due to the desperately poor decision making of a set of clueless Indians.

Rhodes wants premier league football, we've stopped him joining a premier league club. Expect his agent to be working double shifts from now until the end of the transfer window to get him out.

The farce continues.

well firstly this is the same article effectively as yesterday, they just focused on a different bit of Bruces statement.

Secondly I think the last few days have just been a lot of smoke and mirrors from Hull to aid the negotiations with Hernandez and Palmero.

My guess when he takes about an indication to sell that when contact was made they asked "are we willing to sell" and someone said " How much are you talking". Then when they said the amount we said "no not worth it".

Pretty much the same reaction I would have if someone knocked on my door looking to buy my house. I don't want to move but if the offer was outrageous I might consider it , so I would at least want to know what I am saying no to.

Bruces comment is a little daft and I think is designed for him to save a little face and keep hull supporters on board. Time for everyone to move on me thinks

your really starting to turn into a bit of an incoherent mess now.

So lets just say your prediction about financial issues were true( It has been pointed out to you there the accounts of the holding company not BRFC but hey Mcfly that does not seem to be sinking in)

Its been stated the club need to get back into the premiership to get back on track. Your solution is to sell all the best player , stunning.

On top of that your now saying values will be reduced in January , when every year we hear managers complaining about inflated prices in January.

Your saying Rhodes is unhappy hes saying he wants to stay.

Rhodes did not look to depressed to me on Saturday and as I have said for a star striker to sign himself up to a club longer term, shows huge loyalty. Its such a shame when you see players letting there contracts run out at a young age so they can take all the cash out of any move.

Steve Bruce is a very average manager, maybe not even average, and Hull will always have to fight to avoid relegation, if they are in the top flight. Stop telling stories Steve, Jordan is a Rover, and you can do nothing to change that fact!

Depressing? How bizarre! A real case of pan calling kettle black if ever I heard one. Steve Bruce is simply telling it how it is, and, as Jordan's uncle is the assistant manager at our club, I'd say he has a pretty good idea of how the young striker feels.

I DON'T CARE WHAT STEVE BRUCE THINKS HE HAS SOD ALL TO DO WITH BLACKBURN ROVERS.

You toady up to Bruce so much you will be reporting on his bowel movements next.

Stop doing his job for him, we all know he wants Rhodes, we all know he will play the game of unsettling the player, club, fans to get what he wants, whatever it costs, stop being so fecking stupid by increasing that pressure for him.

We need Jordan Rhodes committed to the club and firing on all cylinders at Wolves on Saturday, not having his head screwed by Bruce, ably assisted by the Lancashire Telegraph.

Steve Bruce doesn't actually say that Rhodes is disappointed, he only presumes that he his. As quite a few fans who were at the Bournemouth game have already attested to, Rhodes didn't want to leave the club and he told them as much when asked after the game. Of course Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League, name me a player who doesn't. However, he clearly loves playing for Blackburn Rovers and if he wants to stay and try to help us get promotion this season well, that's HIS prerogative, Mr Bruce.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)

your really starting to turn into a bit of an incoherent mess now.

So lets just say your prediction about financial issues were true( It has been pointed out to you there the accounts of the holding company not BRFC but hey Mcfly that does not seem to be sinking in)

Its been stated the club need to get back into the premiership to get back on track. Your solution is to sell all the best player , stunning.

On top of that your now saying values will be reduced in January , when every year we hear managers complaining about inflated prices in January.

Your saying Rhodes is unhappy hes saying he wants to stay.

Rhodes did not look to depressed to me on Saturday and as I have said for a star striker to sign himself up to a club longer term, shows huge loyalty. Its such a shame when you see players letting there contracts run out at a young age so they can take all the cash out of any move.
Sadly for us they are not my predictions, the are the actual accounts for the holding company of our football club, and as you can see they make for terrifying reading. Last season Venkys London reported a £27m loss, subsequently the club announced a shocking £36.5m loss. Since last seasons financial debacle we have succeeded in losing even more money as our excess wages to income jumped a further staggering 10% to 121%!

Our turnover has dropped by £7.1m, our media revenue, commercial revenue and matchday revenue have all taken a further massive hit, our net debt has gone up, our parachute payments have been halved, and we are now solely reliant on Venkys to pay the players wages.

We are in a complete mess and FFP will force major changes on us as we must restructure to become self sufficient. This is no joke

As much as some of you simpletons try to brush it under the carpet its still there, our losses are increasing horrifically, our debts are increasing, our squad is continually being weakened and yet we still have a £34.9m wage bill even after ridding ourselves of many high earners.

I dont expect you to understand the gravity of the task we now face to even survive, it is going to take decades to make up for the financial mismanagement of the last four years. And in just 12 months time Blackburn Rovers as we know it is going to be a much smaller club at serious risk of administration and points deduction.

Forget promotion.
Forget holding onto our better players beyond January.
We are in a fight for survival and only when our losses are analysed in December will it sink in, unfortunately by then it will be far far too late to save the situation.

When Rhodes goes whether thats on Monday or in January the money received will not be seen. It will have to be used to offset a loss of over £45m for the last financial year.

Wake up you deluded moron.

Last season Venkys London reported a £27m loss, subsequently the club announced a shocking £36.5m loss. Since last seasons financial debacle we have succeeded in losing even more money as our excess wages to income jumped a further staggering 10% to 121%!

Our turnover has dropped by £7.1m, our media revenue, commercial revenue and matchday revenue have all taken a further massive hit, our net debt has gone up, our parachute payments have been halved, and we are now solely reliant on Venkys to pay the players wages.

We are in a complete mess and FFP will force major changes on us as we must restructure to become self sufficient. This is no joke

As much as some of you simpletons try to brush it under the carpet its still there, our losses are increasing horrifically, our debts are increasing, our squad is continually being weakened and yet we still have a £34.9m wage bill even after ridding ourselves of many high earners.

I dont expect you to understand the gravity of the task we now face to even survive, it is going to take decades to make up for the financial mismanagement of the last four years. And in just 12 months time Blackburn Rovers as we know it is going to be a much smaller club at serious risk of administration and points deduction.

Forget promotion.
Forget holding onto our better players beyond January.
We are in a fight for survival and only when our losses are analysed in December will it sink in, unfortunately by then it will be far far too late to save the situation.

When Rhodes goes whether thats on Monday or in January the money received will not be seen. It will have to be used to offset a loss of over £45m for the last financial year.

Wake up you deluded moron.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)
It is actually correct. The original transfer fee to Huddersfield Town was agreed in staged payments of 4x £2m over the course of his 4 year contract. This was reported at the time. We signed him in Aug 2012 and therefore still owe £4m plus 20% of any future profit, so at best we would have received £7.2. Should he move for £10m in Jan when we have to sell him then we will receive just £5.6, none of which will be reinvested due to FFP restrictions.

However, he clearly loves playing for Blackburn Rovers and if he wants to stay and try to help us get promotion this season well, that's HIS prerogative, Mr Bruce.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)
Sorry, I thought we still owed Huddersfield £4M? And 20% of the potential £4M profit is £800k, hence the £4.8M figure I came up with.

Unfortunately thats wrong. Given his age, potential and international prospects Ings woukd be subject to transfer fee decided by tribunal which at the very worst would net Burnley far more than what they paid for Ings therefore they cannot lose out. Ings has proven to be a model professional for them, something we are desperately short of at Ewood, and should they survive I fully expect him to stick with them, he's a class act and I expect he will prove himself at the top level, something we are preventing Rhodes from doing.

You are correct to think so. And it is that fact that I believe has forced Venkys to hold out. If we'd have received the full £12m then he'd be a Hull player now, no doubt about it.

Looks like Derek Shaw may have given Hull and indication or maybe it was the office cleaner but whoever it was needs to communicate more effectively and say " I will ask Mrs Desai" before getting back except in the caser of any enquiries about Williamson whereby you say yes he is available and I can call a taxi now.

I would like to know if GB is getting more players in after signing the young goalie from liverpool?

as per usual a small amount of fact based on little research, I suggest you read up on the tribunal process. Recent cases have shown that the committee is likely to set a basic compensation fee, but include add ons for future realisation of potential ect. Reports in the paper are a fee of £1m was what you paid ,given that , what exactly would you consider to be far more than you paid for him ? If he does not have a good season and start firing in the goals , it could be argued his value would be even less. Ings is doing burnley no favours.

A model professional is someone who signs a new deal and says he loves the club, just like Rhodes did, now he is a model professional
INGS CAN LEAVE FOR FREE and can talk to any club about it in his final 6 months which stats in Jan. so if we cash in now we may get what we paid for him, so long as he starts scoring again and doesn't become another Nugent, only effective below premiership level.

Rhodes value between now and January when we have to sell him may now drop, we risk him picking up injury or a loss of form due to depression and could ultimately lose out on millions due to the desperately poor decision making of a set of clueless Indians.

Rhodes wants premier league football, we've stopped him joining a premier league club. Expect his agent to be working double shifts from now until the end of the transfer window to get him out.

The farce continues.
your really starting to turn into a bit of an incoherent mess now.

So lets just say your prediction about financial issues were true( It has been pointed out to you there the accounts of the holding company not BRFC but hey Mcfly that does not seem to be sinking in)

Its been stated the club need to get back into the premiership to get back on track. Your solution is to sell all the best player , stunning.

On top of that your now saying values will be reduced in January , when every year we hear managers complaining about inflated prices in January.

Your saying Rhodes is unhappy hes saying he wants to stay.

Rhodes did not look to depressed to me on Saturday and as I have said for a star striker to sign himself up to a club longer term, shows huge loyalty. Its such a shame when you see players letting there contracts run out at a young age so they can take all the cash out of any move.
Sadly for us they are not my predictions, the are the actual accounts for the holding company of our football club, and as you can see they make for terrifying reading. Last season Venkys London reported a £27m loss, subsequently the club announced a shocking £36.5m loss. Since last seasons financial debacle we have succeeded in losing even more money as our excess wages to income jumped a further staggering 10% to 121%!

Our turnover has dropped by £7.1m, our media revenue, commercial revenue and matchday revenue have all taken a further massive hit, our net debt has gone up, our parachute payments have been halved, and we are now solely reliant on Venkys to pay the players wages.

We are in a complete mess and FFP will force major changes on us as we must restructure to become self sufficient. This is no joke

As much as some of you simpletons try to brush it under the carpet its still there, our losses are increasing horrifically, our debts are increasing, our squad is continually being weakened and yet we still have a £34.9m wage bill even after ridding ourselves of many high earners.

I dont expect you to understand the gravity of the task we now face to even survive, it is going to take decades to make up for the financial mismanagement of the last four years. And in just 12 months time Blackburn Rovers as we know it is going to be a much smaller club at serious risk of administration and points deduction.

Forget promotion.
Forget holding onto our better players beyond January.
We are in a fight for survival and only when our losses are analysed in December will it sink in, unfortunately by then it will be far far too late to save the situation.

When Rhodes goes whether thats on Monday or in January the money received will not be seen. It will have to be used to offset a loss of over £45m for the last financial year.

Wake up you deluded moron.
Wake up souper clutz.. We all know you are a multi-account troll thinking he's being clever.

Give it up already. I'm embarrassed FOR you.

God knows what your family must be thinking!

Steve Bruce doesn't actually say that Rhodes is disappointed, he only presumes that he his. As quite a few fans who were at the Bournemouth game have already attested to, Rhodes didn't want to leave the club and he told them as much when asked after the game. Of course Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League, name me a player who doesn't. However, he clearly loves playing for Blackburn Rovers and if he wants to stay and try to help us get promotion this season well, that's HIS prerogative, Mr Bruce.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)
I think we still owe about half the original £8mil though. That's where he's got the £4.8mil from.....I think.

Unfortunately thats wrong. Given his age, potential and international prospects Ings woukd be subject to transfer fee decided by tribunal which at the very worst would net Burnley far more than what they paid for Ings therefore they cannot lose out. Ings has proven to be a model professional for them, something we are desperately short of at Ewood, and should they survive I fully expect him to stick with them, he's a class act and I expect he will prove himself at the top level, something we are preventing Rhodes from doing.
as per usual a small amount of fact based on little research, I suggest you read up on the tribunal process. Recent cases have shown that the committee is likely to set a basic compensation fee, but include add ons for future realisation of potential ect. Reports in the paper are a fee of £1m was what you paid ,given that , what exactly would you consider to be far more than you paid for him ? If he does not have a good season and start firing in the goals , it could be argued his value would be even less. Ings is doing burnley no favours.
Spot on Jack, Ings can talk to whomever he pleases from January, even sign for someone on a pre contract basis. If he loved Burnley so much he would sign a new deal, like Rhodes has for Blackburn. If you ask me he is playing the field

They are rich. We are bordering on bankruptcy.

Get over it.

To fight it is futile and simply shows us up as jealous and inferior. We've had our day, now its their turn. Our future is uncertain in so many ways and I find it astounding that some of you are acting so arrogant and can only assume its your way of handling the shame of our unstoppable demise.

Looks like the dingle trolls have nothing else left now so have to keep banging on about ffp like we've never heard of it before. Given half the clubs in the Championship are also affected we'll be in good company.
The trolls should worry about their own club given the facts...
Bottom of the league with no points. Can't sign Championship players because they're too expensive, can't afford the wages and a manager with no Premier League experience up against the best managers and players in the world. And the trolls think we have problems.

As for the individuals who keep on about FFP - there is nothing we as supporters can do so lets get on with life and enjoy.

The fact is neither Rovers or Burnley will ever be a big club again whatever league they are in
Well, one of those has never been a big club...

Rhodes value between now and January when we have to sell him may now drop, we risk him picking up injury or a loss of form due to depression and could ultimately lose out on millions due to the desperately poor decision making of a set of clueless Indians.

Rhodes wants premier league football, we've stopped him joining a premier league club. Expect his agent to be working double shifts from now until the end of the transfer window to get him out.

The farce continues.
Listen R Sole, if Rhodes wanted to go to Hull, he would have put a transfer request in.

So once again, your idiotic post is a bit like your tin pot club; POINTLESS!

sounds like you are upset with the real state of your club now.... why get upset when a club comes calling for a player who is good at what he does. Every club is in the same boat and have players who can be approached. Its promotion or bust for you and I think at the back of your mind you know that there are better teams in the Championship than yours- fact.
If it doesnt happen, and I believe it wont, Rhodes will be sold to pay off debts, there will be no more money coming in to allow you to buy with so at the end of the season things look even more bleak for you.
Venkeys didnt sell because they knew if they did they couldnt do what we are doing and plough the money back into the club... it would have been used to pay off debts... and they would have been in a worse place than now..... their last hope is that JR produces the goods and fires you into the Prem league.... not gonna happen. If i knew now what I didnt yesterday, I would take Hernandez over JR in a heartbeat... so you get to keep your man for now, except by Christmas he will be back down to his real worth - no more than 5 Mil at best.....

"Jordan Rhodes has submitted a transfer request in a bid to push through a move to Premier League Hull City.

A fee believed to be around the £12m mark is to be accepted today."

Still chuckling every time I read that !

Burnley went up.

Played three, lost three, next up Man U,
and INGS AVAILABLE FOR FREE.
And that comment proves my point beautifully.

We now have so little left to feel good about that our entire lives revolve around Burnley losing to the cream of English and European football while we languish in the second division trying to hide from our financial demons. We are officially the most jealous club in history.

How far we have fallen. Tut tut.

I believe the Hull fan has touched a raw nerve with some of you. He is however correct, we will get not one penny of his transfer fee reinvested in the squad because we are in such a financial mess, so indeed it is all or nothing for Venkys now, promotion or bust. Sadly they have once again been badly advised, we need to clear the decks now because by January we could be looking at a reduced fee given our now public accounts are screaming for us to sell sell sell.

God help us all.

Steve Bruce doesn't actually say that Rhodes is disappointed, he only presumes that he his. As quite a few fans who were at the Bournemouth game have already attested to, Rhodes didn't want to leave the club and he told them as much when asked after the game. Of course Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League, name me a player who doesn't. However, he clearly loves playing for Blackburn Rovers and if he wants to stay and try to help us get promotion this season well, that's HIS prerogative, Mr Bruce.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)
I think we still owe about half the original £8mil though. That's where he's got the £4.8mil from.....I think.
either way your up **** creek...... Venkeys are saving their own skin again, by selling JR they dig their own grave...... even if you get promoted (and you wont) the 60mil for being promoted would be creamed off by Venkeys, no money to strengthen squad, we all know where that ends up..... back where you are now....

your really starting to turn into a bit of an incoherent mess now.

So lets just say your prediction about financial issues were true( It has been pointed out to you there the accounts of the holding company not BRFC but hey Mcfly that does not seem to be sinking in)

Its been stated the club need to get back into the premiership to get back on track. Your solution is to sell all the best player , stunning.

On top of that your now saying values will be reduced in January , when every year we hear managers complaining about inflated prices in January.

Your saying Rhodes is unhappy hes saying he wants to stay.

Rhodes did not look to depressed to me on Saturday and as I have said for a star striker to sign himself up to a club longer term, shows huge loyalty. Its such a shame when you see players letting there contracts run out at a young age so they can take all the cash out of any move.
Sadly for us they are not my predictions, the are the actual accounts for the holding company of our football club, and as you can see they make for terrifying reading. Last season Venkys London reported a £27m loss, subsequently the club announced a shocking £36.5m loss. Since last seasons financial debacle we have succeeded in losing even more money as our excess wages to income jumped a further staggering 10% to 121%!

Our turnover has dropped by £7.1m, our media revenue, commercial revenue and matchday revenue have all taken a further massive hit, our net debt has gone up, our parachute payments have been halved, and we are now solely reliant on Venkys to pay the players wages.

We are in a complete mess and FFP will force major changes on us as we must restructure to become self sufficient. This is no joke

As much as some of you simpletons try to brush it under the carpet its still there, our losses are increasing horrifically, our debts are increasing, our squad is continually being weakened and yet we still have a £34.9m wage bill even after ridding ourselves of many high earners.

I dont expect you to understand the gravity of the task we now face to even survive, it is going to take decades to make up for the financial mismanagement of the last four years. And in just 12 months time Blackburn Rovers as we know it is going to be a much smaller club at serious risk of administration and points deduction.

Forget promotion.
Forget holding onto our better players beyond January.
We are in a fight for survival and only when our losses are analysed in December will it sink in, unfortunately by then it will be far far too late to save the situation.

When Rhodes goes whether thats on Monday or in January the money received will not be seen. It will have to be used to offset a loss of over £45m for the last financial year.

Wake up you deluded moron.
do you know what a holding company is
Probably thinks it's shaped like a ****.

Steve Bruce doesn't actually say that Rhodes is disappointed, he only presumes that he his. As quite a few fans who were at the Bournemouth game have already attested to, Rhodes didn't want to leave the club and he told them as much when asked after the game. Of course Rhodes wants to play in the Premier League, name me a player who doesn't. However, he clearly loves playing for Blackburn Rovers and if he wants to stay and try to help us get promotion this season well, that's HIS prerogative, Mr Bruce.

As much as I dislike the Lancashire Telegraph acting as a mouthpiece for Bruce, I did have to laugh - albeit incredulously - at this comment from him:

''If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away.

''But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.''

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce say last Saturday that they'd be back despite being told Rhodes wasn't for sale at any price? And hasn't he spent the preceding four days trying his utmost to unsettle our player by making statements in the 'public domain'?

As for those Hull fans/Burnley trolls saying that we should've taken the money, and that Rhodes will be worth considerably less come the next transfer window, I believe you're wrong on both counts. Had we taken the reported £12M from Hull, £4.8M of that would've gone to Huddersfield. The remaining £7.2M would probably have been used to help offset our losses, although it would've barely scratched the surface. We wouldn't have been able to replace Rhodes, would've considerably weakened our team and, as a direct result, seriously dented our promotion hopes, something the club is pretty much banking on to get us out of this mess.

So, from a business point of view it actually makes more sense to keep him than take the money at this moment in time. As for his value, provided he keeps scoring it will only rise, that's the nature of the beast.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
Only think wrong with your comment is Huddersfield get 20% of any profit on transfer, probably around £700k, which is a hell of a lot less than £4.8 million.

Wonder if they get 20% of any makeweight players...... :-)
But there is apparently around 4 million still owing on the original 8. Still a great decision not to sell as it shows ambition to succeed.
It also shows that the owners are not panicking about the debt and it would not surprise me at all to see them along with other clubs mount a successful challenge be it through the league or through the law against FFP.

I see the chumps at Telegraph HQ have been busy copying and pasting Steve Bruce's comments from his interview on Sky Sports news.

Rule number one of the Lancashire Telegraph - if there's a negative story about Blackburn Rovers - put that on the back page rather than something positive.

Despite the owners reaffirming their commitment to the club, as is evident in flatly rejecting massive bids for Rhodes from a club in the division above us, and despite Jordan Rhodes repeatedly stating his happiness at the club, as was evident in his performance on Saturday, for some reason we local readers are subjected to the bitter opinions of the manager who has just been embarrassed by Venkys. Even a club record bid from Steve Bruce and Hull couldn't get them anywhere, despite them thinking that as a 'Premier League' club that entitles them to cherry pick players from the Championship and that clubs like Rovers can't resist. How wrong they were.

I would prefer to read the views of Gary Bowyer, Derek Shaw, or other people at Blackburn Rovers than a bitter and twisted Hull manager's comments to Sky Sports.

Plenty of ammunition for tomorrow's instalment of negative Rovers news to go at. This afternoon it has been announced that Rovers were the second highest spenders on agents fees last year. Having signed about 20 players I'd say it was inevitable, but no doubt Wheelock and friends will go in search of someone who can predict disaster for the club.

We are in a complete mess and FFP will force major changes on us as we must restructure to become self sufficient. This is no joke

As much as some of you simpletons try to brush it under the carpet its still there, our losses are increasing horrifically, our debts are increasing, our squad is continually being weakened and yet we still have a £34.9m wage bill even after ridding ourselves of many high earners.

I dont expect you to understand the gravity of the task we now face to even survive, it is going to take decades to make up for the financial mismanagement of the last four years. And in just 12 months time Blackburn Rovers as we know it is going to be a much smaller club at serious risk of administration and points deduction.

Listen R Sole, if Rhodes wanted to go to Hull, he would have put a transfer request in.

So once again, your idiotic post is a bit like your tin pot club; POINTLESS!
And as for the cod heads from Hull posting on here, forget it. We've enough bell ends on here, like Turd Moor Tw*t, and we don't want any more.
sounds like you are upset with the real state of your club now.... why get upset when a club comes calling for a player who is good at what he does. Every club is in the same boat and have players who can be approached. Its promotion or bust for you and I think at the back of your mind you know that there are better teams in the Championship than yours- fact.
If it doesnt happen, and I believe it wont, Rhodes will be sold to pay off debts, there will be no more money coming in to allow you to buy with so at the end of the season things look even more bleak for you.
Venkeys didnt sell because they knew if they did they couldnt do what we are doing and plough the money back into the club... it would have been used to pay off debts... and they would have been in a worse place than now..... their last hope is that JR produces the goods and fires you into the Prem league.... not gonna happen. If i knew now what I didnt yesterday, I would take Hernandez over JR in a heartbeat... so you get to keep your man for now, except by Christmas he will be back down to his real worth - no more than 5 Mil at best.....
didnt realise you was a physic!!!!!...you witless fool...why dont you **** off!!!

And as for the cod heads from Hull posting on here, forget it. We've enough bell ends on here, like Turd Moor Tw*t, and we don't want any more.[/p][/quote]sounds like you are upset with the real state of your club now.... why get upset when a club comes calling for a player who is good at what he does. Every club is in the same boat and have players who can be approached. Its promotion or bust for you and I think at the back of your mind you know that there are better teams in the Championship than yours- fact. If it doesnt happen, and I believe it wont, Rhodes will be sold to pay off debts, there will be no more money coming in to allow you to buy with so at the end of the season things look even more bleak for you. Venkeys didnt sell because they knew if they did they couldnt do what we are doing and plough the money back into the club... it would have been used to pay off debts... and they would have been in a worse place than now..... their last hope is that JR produces the goods and fires you into the Prem league.... not gonna happen. If i knew now what I didnt yesterday, I would take Hernandez over JR in a heartbeat... so you get to keep your man for now, except by Christmas he will be back down to his real worth - no more than 5 Mil at best.....[/p][/quote]didnt realise you was a physic!!!!!...you witless fool...why dont you **** off!!! toz73_asfc
