Another UEFA Campaign Likely

Another UEFA Campaign Likely

Vital Blackburn`s most recent Poll asked you "Where will Rovers Finish this season?" Most of you feel that another 5th/6th place will be achieved again this season seeing a return to Europe again in the 2007/08 season regardless as to this seasons UEFA Cup adventure.

47% of you will be more than happy with a repeat of last seasons finish, or thereabouts. 23% feel this season could prove more of a struggle and a mid table place could be a more likely finish this time around. Few of you, a mere 7% think the task will prove more difficult for Hughes` men this season and a disappointing finish in the bottom half awaits.

11% of you are aiming higher, and would expect Rovers to improve on last season and push forward to a Champions League position with a 3rd or 4th placed finish. Those of you even more optimistic see a real title challenge being laid down to the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal, 2% of you think it`ll be another runners-up birth. Yet some would still aim higher, the title will come back to Ewood Park more than a decade after the first, and currently only Premiership success according to 10% of you. VERY happy days at Ewood then!

It appears that the majority, almost half will be more than happy to see a similar performance as last season. Personally, with most of the squad still intact and some quality additions, despite the loss of Bellamy I can see another successful season, and a top 6 position a real possibility.

So in summary
Win the League! - 10%
Runners Up - 2%
3rd or 4th - 11%
5th or 6th - 47%
Mid Table - 23%
Bottom Half - 7%

Vital View - Championship, 1st-3rd December 2016

Another Newcastle defeat opened the Brighton but Albion could only draw so closed to within a point of the leaders. Cardiff, Wigan and rock bottom Rotherham make up the bottom three.

A Danny Graham penalty ensured Blackburn claimed a share of the points against promotion-chasing Huddersfield with Rovers making it three unbeaten after this draw at Ewood Park.
