Incredibly this season marks the 20th anniversary season to Blackburn Rovers winning the 1994-1995 Premier League Title.
Even though I can in many ways remember this like it was yesterday and it doesn't seem possible that it was twenty-years ago I'd almost forgotten that this coming season was a landmark anniversary until our skipper for that season Tim Sherwood had commented in The Lancashire Telegraph about it.
You'd want to be celebrating such a thing by winning the Premier League again but I'd settle for us marking it by simply returning to the Premier League again having gone up through the play-offs or even better securing a place thanks to automatic promotion ideally as Championship Champions!!
I think that Sherwood is right though that if you look at the quality in the Championship for us to earn promotion by finishing in the top two we'll do very well, however, he knows how fitting it would be to mark the achievements of Jack Walker's Boys by getting back into the Premier League and he'd "love this" to happen.
Wouldn't we all!!
Sherwood has some experience of his own of getting our of this Division and feels (I think he could be right) that you need to have experience in your squad but more importantly you need to have goals and he thinks that this could be an area of concern for us perhaps?? I've said myself that I worry (God forbid) that if Jordan Rhodes doesn't delivery the goals or gets injured we might struggle??
Hopefully we've got enough people that can chip in with goals from all areas of the park though and our main man Rhodes isn't going to suffer a loss of form or any serious injury lay off!!
If all goes well I can certainly see us ending the season in the play-offs, from there it becomes a lottery but Uncle Jack will be smiling down on us and willing that ball into the net to mark this anniversary with promotion I'm certain.
Come on Rovers let's make it happen!!
