'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Warning Shot Fired Out

Given the debut season that Tom Cairney had with Blackburn Rovers if he can improve upon that we'll (and he'll) not do bad at all!!

Cairney started last season on a six-month loan at Ewood Park but in January we (quite rightly) turned this into a permanent signing from Hull City for what looks a bargain 600,000. Not naturally a right-winger this is where he performed for most of last season and to such a high level.

Brilliantly for us (but ominously for our Championship opponents this season) the 23-year-old has sounded out a warning to all that despite being pleased with how he performed he feels there's a lot more to come.

He told The Lancashire Telegraph: "I was pleased with my performances, I think I played well, in a different position too. I've never played on the wing in my career before. I've played in the hole, I've played sitting, and I've played in the middle, but never on the wing.

"I still think there's more to come. I'm only 23 and I think I've nowhere near reached my capabilities.

"I've just got to carry on working hard but I definitely think there's more to come, especially next season.
"

I think that based on his debut campaign Cairney would've already been a candidate to defend his Rovers Player of the Year Award won last season, however, if he's "nowhere near" what he's capable of and has "more to come" we've already got a prime candidate for this seasons Award haven't we!!

We've got the nucleus of a good squad in place at Ewood Park, which has been tweaked by Gary Bowyer again this summer and I feel that as a squad if we perform to our capabilities and the likes of Cairney etc. produce consistently we can take the form we ended last season with throughout this coming season and be there or thereabout for the play-offs.

We need Cairney firing from the get go. Every game counts, and our best players need to be fit and controlling the game. Fingers crossed
Sasman!
I can see us going up this season! Be a hard task, but, we can do it!
Marcus:)
I was starting to think we wouldn't get any comments on my articles, these are the first since I made my return as Editor!! I'm not Mike (he's much better) but I'll try my best upon my return so hope I can gain you're interest VBers.
Walker
As for Cairney if he can follow up his thoughts with actions (again!!) we'll not do bad and think Marcus could be right, we may well go up this season.
Walker
I am right ;) hahah WE ARE GOING UP!
Marcus:)
as for not getting comments, I know the feeling, I write blogs and stuff all the time and never get any comments:(
Marcus:)
I've only just returned to Vital Blackburn as the Editor after many years away. The previous Editor took us to a new level but didn't have the time any longer, I've decided to try again. I don't use Social Media but do think that this controls a lot of things. I'm encouraged by the interest on Vital Blackburn mind. Send me an e-mail Marcus as I'd like to know more about your blogs (just use the envolope for the e-mail address.)
Walker
Yeah, Social Media is a massive part of things nowadays, a MASSIVE MASSIVE part actually, saying that though, I just know of this website and visit it directly near enough every day, or through Mikey Delap on Twitter and yeah no problem mate :)
Marcus:)
Fingers crossed Marcus!
Sasman!
Great read Walker - tremendous stuff :)
Mikey Delap
Don't need to cross fingers ;) Blackburn will return with a vengeance next season!
Marcus:)
Thanks Mr Mikey, I think I'm starting to get the hang of this again and having been a bit "wooden" with my earlier articles think I'm starting to put a bit more life and personality into my articles again??
