- Tue, 20 Aug 2019 21:08:28 +0000: Football League: Woodgate gets first Middlesbrough win while Derby lose - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
• Assombalonga sinks Wigan; Derby slip against Bristol City
• Sheffield Wednesday go top with win against Luton
Jonathan Woodgate said Middlesbrough remain “a work in progress” despite his first win as head coach against Wigan.
Britt Assombalonga’s 23rd-minute header was enough to seal Woodgate’s first three points since succeeding Tony Pulis in the summer. But the Middlesbrough manager, knowing his team were far from convincing, does not want anyone to get carried away and has warned that there will be peaks and troughs throughout his first season in charge.Continue reading...
- Sat, 10 Aug 2019 16:08:41 +0000: Tom Cairney’s thunderbolt sees off Blackburn and gives Fulham first win - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
After suffering a shock opening-day defeat to a newly promoted side, it was imperative for Scott Parker that his Fulham team got their first league win in their clash with Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage. But more than that, he wanted to see “bravery” from the Championship favourites to continue playing out from the back - even when the home fans made their frustrations about Fulham’s new style of play perfectly clear.
Parker, though, was vindicated after Tom Cairney’s superb long-range strike in the 35th minute handed the hosts the lead before Aleksandar Mitrovic’s tap-in with nine minutes remaining secured a 2-0 win.Continue reading...
- Wed, 31 Jul 2019 15:00:56 +0000: Ten of the best transfers by Championship clubs this summer - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
A few new (and familiar) faces will be hoping to impress when the Championship season kicks off on Friday night
Following their relegation from the Premier League and the departures of both Aron Gunnarsson and Victor Camarasa, Cardiff City were in desperate need of midfield reinforcements. Will Vaulks is an excellent addition. He chipped in with seven goals and seven assists last season while captaining Rotherham and should prove to be a real asset with and without the ball. Strong in the tackle and great in the air, with a cannon of a throw-in to boot, he’ll be a key player.

Fulham could bounce straight back with their four-man attack while Leeds are sure to be in the promotion mix and Neil Warnock’s Cardiff are not to be ignored
There may not be an overwhelming favourite for automatic promotion but certain teams appear streets ahead in the firepower stakes. None more so than Fulham, who will likely start with an attacking diamond of Aleksandar Mitrovic, a Premier League striker in all but name, Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro and Tom Cairney, a player capable of running games in this division. Fulham deservedly took flak for their lavish and directionless spending last summer but it is impossible to ignore their latest business. They were, though, a soft touch in defence last season, so Scott Parker still has plenty to address, and the expectation will prove a test of his credentials.Continue reading...
- Tue, 11 Jun 2019 14:31:42 +0000: Lord Patel of Blackburn obituary - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
Businessman, Labour politician and pioneer in the field of community relations
Like so many other young men of his generation, Adam Patel left India in 1965 seeking business qualifications in the UK and headed for Blackburn, Lancashire, because of its long established connections with textile manufacturing in his home state of Gujarat.
He was encouraged by a temporary boom in the Lancashire textile industry, which meant that he could finance his studies at Blackburn College by working in a cotton mill, with the intention of returning home to practise accountancy. Instead he remained to become a leading businessman, a pioneer in the development of successful community relations and a hugely respected character in the political and commercial life of what became his adopted home town.Continue reading...

It ends all square in the sunshine as Rovers and Neil Warnock's Bluebirds play out a draw
Both Rovers and Cardiff City drew for the first time this season as the encounter at a baking hot Ewood Park ended in stalemate.
Newly relegated Blackburn Rovers have now resigned themselves to loosing many of their top players in the closed season due to their unsuccessful season just gone which will break the hearts of many of their supporters. One of the first players who will make an exit from Ewood Park is French midfielder Steven N`Zonzi who look set to return to the premier league as their are now a number of clubs battling for the players signature.
On a plus note the side from the north have many targets on their scope for the new season as Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad options with the first of these to be signed being the Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. The influential striker has just signed a two year deal to take him to Ewood Park on a free transfer as he was released from his previous side Braga at the end of the season.
Another two players who have been signed by kean so far are Danny Murphy and Leon Best who have recently both signed lucrative deals to help the side retake their position in the top flight of English football. Both players arrived on free transfers which is always a bonus for clubs and bring with them a wealth of experience.
Want away winger Junior Hoilett is another player who is close to leaving the club this summer as he is on the verge of a move to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is also said to have held talks with many of the premier leagues top clubs but it look for than likely that the player will look for pastures new in on of Europe’s top leagues. The twenty two year old has just been seen to fly out to Germany to seal this deal so barring a disaster you will see him in the colours of Monchengladbach next season.
Finally rover have also been involved in arranging the transfer of up and coming Ipswich goal keeper Scott Loach who has been on Keans radar for some time and are now looking to hijack an approach from Watford. The young keeper is thought to be the perfect player for Kean to rebuild from the back and it is believe that Loach is very keen on a move up north.
