This Season Promises A LOT
Expectation levels were high at Blackburn Rovers before the season started, now that we are six competitive games in and Rovers are still unbeaten Mark Hughes believes that this season could be something else for the club.
The 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday Evening kept Rovers unbeaten start to the season intact, and made it four wins (three in the UEFA Cup, including the Intertoto Cup games) and two draws out of six matches, with two of these already against teams that finished fourth (Arsenal) and fifth (Everton) last season in the Premiership.
It is not just the fact that Rovers have remained unbeaten; it is the manor of the performances that has impressed Hughes the most, and he feels we are in for a superb season.
After the game on Saturday he told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "I saw some great signs from my side, I'm sure we'll be very much in the mix this season.
"We've played two difficult away games and the one game at home we've had was against a side from the top four, so it wasn't an easy start for us.
"For us to have the return we've had already and are still unbeaten, it is a decent start."
