  • Thu, 14 May 2020 07:00:03 +0000: 'It was perfect': 25 years on from the day Blackburn won the league - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    On the anniversary of Rovers clinching the title, we speak to some of the people involved on that final day at Liverpool

    Blackburn had waited 81 years for another league title and led Manchester United by two points going into the final day of the 1994-95 season. Rovers went to Anfield on 14 May but ended up losing 2-1 against Liverpool. Fans in the away end were left hoping Alex Ferguson’s side would be denied by West Ham.

    The game at Upton Park ended in a draw to hand Rovers the title in one of the most dramatic finishes to a season in the English top flight. The triumph completed the transformation, led by Jack Walker – a local businessman who bankrolled the club – and manager Kenny Dalglish, from small-town club to champions of England.

  • Fri, 01 May 2020 12:37:54 +0000: The Premier League's best young players of 2009-10 ... a decade later - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    Gareth Bale went on to win the Champions League four times, but many of his contemporaries had already peaked

    By Martin Laurence for WhoScored

    There is an assumption that footballers get better with age before peaking in their late twenties and regressing in their thirties. The theory goes that players improve with greater experience before their fitness deteriorates and they inevitably get worse. However, a look back at the best players aged 21 or under in the 2009-10 season shows that not every promising youngster is destined for greater things.

He started his career at Villa before joining Cardiff in 2007, playing more than 450 times for the club. He finished his career at Blackburn, whom he left in August 2018.

    Ladies

    Missy Bo Kearns and Fran Stenson have returned to Liverpool and Arsenal, respectively

    Rovers Ladies can confirm that England Under-19s pair Missy Bo Kearns and Fran Stenson have returned to their parent clubs.

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.
