Nice Easy Trip To Middlesbrough!

Blackburn Rovers start the 2007-2008 campaign on the road with a nice easy trip to Middlesbrough!

Without wanting to sound overly confident, or even cocky our season opener against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium holds little fear for me, after all we have done the double over them for the last two seasons.

The first home game is scheduled for Wednesday 15th August 2007 against Aston Villa, but with our continued involvement in the UEFA Cup qualification stages (hopefully) this may need re-arranging so it could turn out that Arsenal's visit a few days later could be our first outing at Ewood Park?

We conclude our season with another away trip; this will take us to St Andrews, home of Birmingham City where Robbie Savage will no doubt get a standing ovationů NOT!!!

Due to the greedy you know what's these days the full fixture list CAN'T be published on Vital Blackburn (I know it's BANG out of order!) but you can see it in full via the official Blackburn Rovers website, simply click here!

So then guys what do we think?!?! Overall I don't think we've got that bum a deal, nice assortment of fixtures with no real run of fixtures against the "big boys!" April looks a tricky month though.

November looks tricky with Fool and Chelski one after the other but apart from that why would we fear anyone!!

Exactly Clint we should fear NO ONE! I would fancy Liverfool, but it's Manure at Old Trafford after isn't it, Chelsea are faced in September and December. I would happily settle for a point with Manure at Old Trafford, but we've done them before, so why not do them again!

I think we got a good deal out of this... we should hit the ground running with our intertoto starting early.

MikeyGamst - Good call dude, pre-season is NOT the same as competitive games is it, our Intertoto Cup games will give us genuine competition with MUST win matches! In theory giving us an edge over others. Pleasing performances will not count for anything will they, as they do in pre-season.
