Play-Offs Expected

Play-Offs Expected

The latest Vital Blackburn poll was asking for views on this seasons performance and a play-off place is the expected outcome.

Here are the results.

What do you expect this season?
Suggested By: Walker
Play-Offs 59%
Automatic Promotion 26%
Midtable 13%
Bottom Half 2%
Relegation 0%


We came close to this last season, perhaps closer than some people expected?? In the end we might have ended a little disappointed knowing that some of the high scoring draws that we were involved in (as entertaining as they might have been) cost us in the end.

In my honest opinion I don't think missing out last season has done us too much harm and has actually set us up nicely for this season and a play-off spot would be my minimum aims too and will be what Blackburn Rovers are (or should be) aiming for as a minimum.

A little over a quarter that voted are looking for automatic promotion?? I wouldn't rule this out (as why should we) but I do think we'll do very well to manage that.

Do you think expectancy levels are right??

I've added a new poll for this week that is asking "where do we need to strengthen still" with you given five different options to select from so cast your vote.

Just about right! Not sure if we have the consistency or depth especially in defence for automatic promotion

IMHO I think there's too many others in the Championship that can consistently perform and finish in the top two to stop us doing that, however, completely agree that a play-off position is more than possible.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
