Vital Blackburn member r.waterfall asks, "Could Blackburn's contracts, when buying and selling, be stronger?"
It was good news to hear from Mark Hughes that there was no clause in McCarthy's contract, allowing him to leave if a bid for £X million was received. I am only just getting over last summer, when Bellamy left for what seemed then so little cash. I accept that he may not have come to Blackburn in the first place (if the clause had not been there) but surely it should not have been tied so strongly to a specific sum. More along the lines of 'start negotiating up from a £7 million base to his then current market value' (which may have had to be decided by an independent panel).
After him not being as successful at Liverpool, he may now only be worth £5 to £6 million. Could we not have included in the contract that sold him to Liverpool, a clause saying that we would have first option to buy him back at £1 million less than we sold him for. People will say 'ridiculous' but if Liverpool want to sell, that proves they think they were wrong to pay as much as they did. He is a year older and we have been without his services for a season, so why should we not get him back for a little less than we received?
Reverting back to McCarthy, can we believe anything he says any more? Just weeks ago he was 'so happy at Blackburn - I owe Rovers everything for keeping faith in me and allowing me to achieve my dream of playing in the premiership' etc.
Last week it was 'I was misquoted - things were published out of context' etc. Today he is as good as putting in a transfer request via the media, saying he wants to play for any team that is in the Champions League!
Sort him out Mark or we will have this to contend with all summer.
