Hughes: Show Rovers Some Respect

Hughes: Show Rovers Some Respect

Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes has said what most; in fact all of us have been thinking for many months, in fact a year or more now… Rovers deserve more credit than we get.

Hughes is disappointed, if not paranoid (his own words) that Rovers still fail to gain the credit we so rightly deserve and wants us to be "held in a highest regard" and respected as we deserve to be. He told the Sun newspaper:

"I don't think we are getting the respect we deserve, but maybe I'm a bit paranoid.

"We don't go out to bang our own drum, but sometimes you feel you have to - and it's not for myself, but for all the staff.

"It's important everyone at this club knows what we are trying to do and what we've had to put up with.

"If that brings us closer as a group, so be it."

In fairness more people are appreciating what is being done at Rovers with many complimentary of the way we now play and conduct ourselves and are not merely keeping us labelled with the "beat 'em up" tag we had a couple of years back, but even then lets face it we were literally fighting for our Premiership lives and needs must.

When all is said and done all that really matters is that the Rovers faithful know what we can do and appreciate this but even so it's nice that others can appreciate this also; we are more than happy to appreciate what others do (most of us on vital Blackburn, if not all have and do!) so it is only right that others do likewise which the vast majority on vital football do yet you still get the small minority that are blinkered...

Listing to 606 on the radio on Thursday night didn't see Rovers earning too much respect from some Gooners fans, for the ones to be texting in and saying they were basically glad we went out as our football isn't deserving of that stage is scandalous. I was gutted after our exit yet still made a point to follow ALL the other BRITISH clubs fortunes and wanted them ALL to win and want them ALL to win in the Champions League also! The match Rovers played at the Emirates wasn't pretty but we did the job we went there for how do we not deserve respect for that? We got respect when we went their and had a good and got spanked, surely our defensive display and ability to hold out for 90 minutes like no other English side had before deserved the same amount?!?!

Its called jealuosy, jealousy at our ability to prevent them from scoring and forcing another game that they could do without. Sucess is such a burden eh?

That's what happens, Mark, when you build a team in your own image!

That is Arsenal fans though aint it??? i'm not one to stereotype but Arsenal fasn are a petty bunch. They think they are the best but sont realise that football actually wxists outside the top 4. Its alright to complain that teams defend agaisnt them but if they cant break down a team in 90 mins then they dont deserve to win.
