Robbie Blake Says No Deal,Says Nixon!

Robbie Blake Says No Deal,Says Nixon!

Robbie Blake has turned down Burnley's final offer of a new one-year contract according to Alan 'Spit' Nixon in the Mirror.

It would appear (as recently stated in a Vital Burnley article) that Blake was seeking a longer deal of two years.

Burnley though have stuck to their guns and refused to offer a longer contract.

Blake is a firm Clarets fans' favourite and they will be disappointed by this news.

It will be sad to see Robbie leave for the second time, if the article is true which seems likely knowing Nixon's track record for accuracy.

Both Hearts and Preston have been linked with a move for the 34 year old midfielder and not many Clarets fans would relish the thought of Blake lining up against us next season for North End so let's hope the SPL club or a non-Championship side come up with the goods!

Drat, still sometimes you just have to move on! Just hope some of the fans don't get on Laws back for not going the extra mile to keep Robbie.

I think the club has been reasonable on this one: if we get promoted, i'm not sure RB would be up to it, given that he would be 2 years older than this time round. Time will tell. Sign for a year, Robbie, and see what happens!

Agree Barnsey. Interesting that if this wasnt Robbie Blake and was a 34yo from another club we were trying to sign - some fans would no doubt be having a go at Laws for signing 'older' players.

I think it is usual that players of his age only get one year contracts. Look at Giggs and Scholes. How long have they been on one year contracts? I don't think Robbie can really expect a two year. If he does go I wish him the best of luck.

Don't you lot know there's a World Cup on? Click on 'Vital Burnley Forums' at the top of this page, then on the forum callled 'World Cup and All That Jazz', and you will find a number of discussions... about the new Jabulani ball, headless chickens in the England squad, North Korean subs, and the struggles of HRH Claret Charlie trying to ensure he manages to be fair in his support of all Commonwealth teams... while explaining to his mother that troubles at the Palace do not indicate the start of the revolution.

If its true about Blake then all the best to Robbie like Dale say's if Laws was signing a 34yo he would be getting some stick.

CP have you been appointed as our chief advertising executive ;-) I think Robbie may regret not signing a deal if he hasn't, I still think he can come on as an impact player, I cannot see him getting a regular 90 mins anywhere else?

Fair enough Robbie - Assume he has left for better first team opportunities elsewhere as I am sure if he had stayed he would have took part in at least 20 games to get another year. Hope he goes on to finish his career succesfully. If he was to drop down to league 1 ( maybe a club like Sheff Weds), I could see him causing numerous problems ( on the pitch). Good Luck Robbie - I am glad you were part of our success.
