Westwood wanted by Blackburn despite his ‘injuries’


Recommended Posts

Best keeper we have at the club but if he is not going to play, may as well at least get his wages of the clubs overheads. If we can get some promotion fees when he help Blackburn to promotion everyone's happy.

Hodge and Turner were also better but Woods was bobbins.

Woods had some great games.

Won us the game one Boxing Day at Everton.

Hirst scored our only goal.

Fair score-line would have been Everton 6 Wed 1, but for brilliant Woods,

Due to the foolish of Monk this has to happen. Westwood is still our best keeper but he’s not playing and on daft wages so he needs to go. We now need a new no 1 though because we will be relegated with bobbins like Wildsmith and especially Dawson in goal.

Monk is no better than Jos.

He'll get 'injured' lifting the pen to sign the contract 

 

Westwood has been quite happy sat at home collecting his wages for nearly a year and people still worship the crock

It won't even go that far. When a pen is given, Westwood dives the other way.

I think that to get Westwood and Rhodes off the books he has to forego a transfer fee as any Championship club would struggle to pay wages AND a transfer fee.

 

Perhaps someone should have told DC last summer when Norwich were wanting to take Rhodes off our hands.

 

Still he scored 3 goals last season and only cost us circa £1.5million - £2million quid in wages.

 

Then we wonder why we are in the brown stuff with P&S sanctions.

I'm sure he would have quite liked to play.

Believe this when I see it ,  Blackburn won’t pay him anywhere close to what he’s earning here and Chansiri won’t pay him up

Eh?

 

Norwich wanted Rhodes for free, which would have meant that the amount still due on his fee due to amortisation would then appear in last season's accounts. Suddenly having the 2-3m we still owe (in accounting terms) appear in our accounts without it being covered by an incoming fee wouldn't have done us any favours.

God knows why . Above anything else , his performances last season were worse than Dawson’s . Some of his mistakes were border line comical . He finished and has been for a while . It was the same when hooper was here and this forum was obsessing about the player he used to be

You can try and spin it however you like.

 

For me, it's just yet another poor transfer decision from the DC era.

 

Call me old-fashioned, but 3 goals in return for circa £1.5million-£2million quid in wages is pitiful.

 

We should have snapped up Norwich's offer.

Should be number 1

 

Nothing against the others but we need an experienced head between the sticks with a strong personality. If that isn't Westwood then we have to sign a new keeper

 

Wildsmith and Dawson have a great future ahead of them but considering the position we're currently in with the -12 we need a safe pair of hands at the back

 

 

What have you seen that makes you think they have a "great future ahead"?

 

They are mid 20's and you don't want them in your team ,when is this great future going to kick in

It's not 'spin'; it's reality.

 

If we'd done as you suggest and accepted Norwich's offer of £0 last summer, the remaining £2-3m approx. of Rhodes' fee which was due to appear in this season's accounts would have been due in last year's, potentially tipping us over the P&S threshold once again.

 

I don't understand why you think that would have been a wise move?

Though we are reportedly paying him 50k a week which is 2.6m a year in wages
