Rovers' name on the UEFA Cup?

Rovers' name on the UEFA Cup?

Vital Blackburn's most recent Poll asked you "What are Rovers most likely to win this season?"

With over a quarter of those that voted (27%) feeling that Rovers will in fact win nothing this season, which you can understand why as to win anything takes something special and a lot of luck. This said I think Rovers REALLY could win something this season if they really go after tournaments.

The tournament most people feel Rovers can win is the UEFA Cup, gaining 42% of he votes. Mark Hughes is this very seriously so if Rovers can safely negotiate the Group stages and gain a favourable draw in the last 32 who knows what could happen?

Although obviously we would very much like to see Rovers win the Premiership, with 7% this was the least fancied and realistically rightly so.

The FA Cup is a trophy every club dearly loves to win and after the League Title is the one most fans would always like to win. This came in with 10% behind the League Cup which gained 13%. The League Cup is much like the UEFA Cup in my opinion, should Rovers take it seriously and get that luck they'll have a great chance as other don't always put out strong side. Overcome Chelsea and we won`t face many tougher challenges!

So in summary
Premiership - 8%
League Cup - 13%
FA Cup - 10%
UEFA Cup - 42%
Nothing - 27%


The current poll is asking, "Who has been best summer transfer window signing?"

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findings...

Well you've got to be in it to win it paulr3062 and Rovers certainly are. We are playing some of the best football in England at the moment so if this continues we have a very good chance and the 42% could be proved right! Lets just look back in seven months or so and see.
