    Roving For More Premier League Glory

    Since Blackburn's Premier League win in 1995 they have appointed several different managers to attempt to repeat this. but none have even really came close
    So when Blackburn were relegated in 2012 from the premier league to the Championship they sacked manager Steve Kean. There Next plans were to just start fresh and to slowly build towards their Premier League Dreams.
    so on July 27th, Blackburn announce a new inexperienced manager from Australia name Andrew Motley.
    Certain That Mr Motley does not have any experience, they can see he has a lot of potential and will drive Blackburn forward for years to come.

    Andrew Motley says that he is ecstatic that he was chosen to manager Blackburn and he can't believe they trust him to bring Blackburn back to a major force in England, before he added and that he is very surprised at 39 thousand pounds a week, "that is like heaps, well I think, still need to get used to money being in pounds instead of dollars."
    So now Andrew now packs his belongings ready to move to Blackburn and begin his Managerial Career.




  2. Update 1

    The Rovers Roving for more Premier league Glory- A Blackburn Story-blackburn-vs-cardiff.jpg

    Blackburn 0-1 Carfiff
    Andrew Motley's Debut Didn't turn out right for Blackburn some would say the rovers were rather unlucky because they had three times as much shots than cardiff and over double the amount on target but just could not find the net.

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Blackburn
    another unlucky game for Blackburn. in the first ten minutes the Eagles found them self with a goal with a cross that went into the net. gamst Pedersen equalised just before half time with a lovely header. The Second half blackburn were controling the game for the most part and made it count with a second goal and guess just unlucky that The Eagles scored two goals in the last 10 minutes.
    other news Blackburn have drawn Crystal Palace in the Capital one cup game next week.

    Blackburn 1-5 Sheffield Wednesday
    Just embarrassing, no one knows what happened and a pretty shaky start for new manager Andrew Motley.

    a very disappointing game against rivals where a win would see the rovers ahead on the table in front of Bolton. but it's Bolton who strike 6 points in front of Blackburn.
