Rumour Mill-Coyle Wants Jay Rod!

Rumour Mill-Coyle Wants Jay Rod!

It is now almost inevitable with Eddie Howe preparing Clarets fans for the worst that Jay Rodriguez could be leaving in the summer.

Jay Rod currently injured with a 'wear and tear' hip and groin problem may already have played his last game for the Clarets unless he can feature in the six games of the season remaining.

Eddie Howe recently said:

'I'm sure there will be clubs looking at him so we'll wait and see on that one,' said Howe. 'I'm sure it will be difficult to keep hold of him, but we would love to.

Any Premier League team that watches our games and does their homework will see what a season he's had.

They'll look at his age, his goalscoring record and all of the attributes that he's got.'

Clarets fans are probably resigned to losing him but they won't be happy with news today that Owen Coyle is interested in bringing him to the Reebok for next season.

It is understood that Coyle is eyeing the Clarets marksman along with rival Everton gaffer David Moyes.

No doubt our leading goal-scorer with 21 goals in all competitions this season is already on the radar of other Premier League clubs. Newcastle, for example wre also reportedly interested in the striker in the January window. Nowrich were also sniffing about!

If we are to lose Jay Rod, I am sure Clarets fans will be hoping he signs for a club in the top half of the Premier League table.

Bolton, would certainly not be in that league and they are still of course fighting for their top flight lives. If they fail in their mission and Bolton are relegated, you just can't see Jay Rod a local boy and 'one of our own' jumping ship just to play for another Championship side next season!

Oh well,it is going to be a very interesting close season by looks of it. Let's hope it's one where we gain more than we lose!!

Here we go,here we go, here we go! Just hope we can get this business over with quickly in the summer if Jay Rod is leaving so we have time hopefully to put the money towards a replacement or six!!

Much as we would love him to stay its inevitable he will leave. Barry Kilby has already warmed us up to that in yesterdays program notes saying how our budget will be £8m lower next year due to lower parachute payments Furthermore its unlikely he would go to a team in the top 6 as he will want to play football not be in the reserve team all the time so we just better get used to the real possibilty of him going to Bolton or somewhere similar instead of wasting the next 4 months dedbating it

debating it i meant! also with the £8m budget reduction I wouldnt bank on getting more than 1 cheap replacement and the sooner tmp accepts that the better rather than keep saying what might have been if we'd done things differently 2 years ago

Some of us want to change this bollox we have suffered for over 50 years,BC! Sorry, but until we do we will just be taking a few scraps from the table now and again unless of course we are relegated, and relegated by natural progression like the last time in the 70s underiinvestment led to our demise and nearly our very league status! It is utterly DISGRACEFUL that we have have fallen so far since the promotion and the blame lies firmly at the Board's door and the sooner folks realise it the better! As for not betting the ranch and daring to dream, the bloody ranch was sold and now we face a potential nightmare!

We all know Jay is likely to go and I am sure Eddie already has potential replacement in mind. I cant see him going to Bolton because I am not sure they could afford the transfer fee. As much as I like Jay, he is unproven at Premier League level and is by no means certain to succeed ( although I hope he does). At a guess, I am not sure Bolton will have £5m+ to spend on one player who would be a 'punt'.

I hope we sell Jay to a team I feel I can support whilst Jay is doing well. I like Rangers (Lafferty), I like Plymouth (McDonald) it all falls apart and goes PITON when you mention Blake, Eagles and Mears! If you know what I mean. Sunderland, Everton or Newcastle I would be over the moon to watch Jays career take off, notloB or deadwood he would be just another Judas.....

Well said VR! To be honest, we will all breathe a sigh of relief if Bolton get relegated now! Just sick and tired of Judas getting his oar in and flashing his horse teeth! I can't believe Jay Rod would want to entertain Bolton even if they stay in Prem with clubs like Newcastle, even Everton sniffing around [Edited by turfmanphil]

I would like to think Jays allegiance would be with Burnley being a local lad and wouldn't do the dirty on us. Id really like to see him at a upper mid-table side, someone like Everton, Sunderland Stoke etc but how much of it will it be his choice?
