Rovers Slap HEFTY Price On Roberts

Rovers Slap HEFTY Price On Roberts

Blackburn Rovers have slapped a £4 million price tag on Jason Roberts' head in order to try and deter possible bids.

Roberts has already stated his desire to move in order to gain regular first team football (which is understandable) but his transfer request was refused and he was told that unless the right offer comes in he will be going nowhere. He has no shortage of clubs looking at him but the amount that we are apparently asking is likely to put off ALL of them!!!

It is right that we are holding out for the best price, but asking £4 million (which is £1 million more than the amount we paid for him!) is just outrageous (some would say bordering on greedy) and WILL NOT be paid.

Come on, he is good (and we know that I rate him) but NOWHERE near £4 million good. There is no way that the board can justify asking even more than the amount we paid for him. He hasn't become any less of a player than the one he was that we signed, but he has NEVER become a million better!!!

Yeah I agree. We won't get £4m for him. I would accept three to be honest, I think that is a fair enough valuation.

£3 million would be more than fair, even £2.5 million wouldn't be bad, just a £500,000 loss on a player that hasn't really played much wouldn't be bad would it?

I agree mate. He has struggled with injuries but still managed to make a small impact. With that extra money we could in vest it in a decent right back, maybe Taylor from Wigan, and a midfielder.

£4mill is a ridiculous amount to ask. However, who thought we would get £2mill for Kuqi!?

Now b4 I start I LIKE ROBERTS - lol but £4m is not an awful lot for him, when u consider thats the kind of fee that is being touted for James Beattie from Sheffield Utd. When u think of the games he played for the club and the wages he's on then the club is only rite to try and claw back some of the money they have invested in him. Roberts if we or indeed any other club gets him fit for a while is as dangerous a stiker as any outside the books of the Top 4 in my books so why not ask a little more for him.

Um, well when you see Marlon Harewood going for 5 million in the summer, then maybe we have Roberts undervalued!!!! I think Rovers are saying 4 million but i think itll be used as a bartering tool where they will negotiate the price. I think we would accept what we payed for him IMO

Oh i think thats the case too mate but when as u say u see other players going for that kind of money who are basically the same level or below Roberts then it sticks in your throat when they say Rovers are over pricing.
