Blackburn Rovers are quietly going about their business, moving forward (at times almost unnoticed.) However, it seems that the media are starting to take notice, and are giving credit where due.
For so very long the dirty, ugly, violent tag (which was once VERY much true, not that many will deny it, as they couldn't!) that is all too often branded to Rovers is the only tag that people hear, and believe. Although this has angered ALL Rovers fans, players and Mark Hughes in particular, who has been VERY vocal on this it does seem that opinions are starting to chance, and more in the surprising area of the media as opposed to fans.
Many fans of other clubs do know what Rovers are all about, but with so many happy to simply take what they are told by the so called expert pundits as the gospel truth, when Rovers are only given bad publicity, right or wrong people believe this but I have been HUGLY encouraged by what has been coming out of the media in recent weeks, none more so than over the weekend.
It has been a long time since Rovers were so highly praised in most, if not all aspects of the media, but they have been gaining praise upon praise recently and watching the pundits talks on television, listening to the football phone-ins on the radio and reading reports online they are all sharing a common theme, Rovers ARE going places, with some many of them now believing that Rovers are not the team they are portrayed as being, and if they DON'T finish in the top six they will be surprised.
Rovers can have a physical approach to the game, but this is mirrored, and far outweighed with a highly skilful passing and movement game with some truly gifted footballers that gives Rovers a fine balance of strength and skill, more often than not with this strength kept within the boundaries of the game (even if others can't, or chose not to see this?) It has been a long time coming but I have been increasingly impressed with the credit that Rovers have gained recently, even if they are STILL not featured in the opening credits of Match of the Day (something that roversman has correctly pointed out, which is TRUE!!!) which is beyond belief, showing a complete lack of respect, but this lack of respect and credit where due approach is all changing, by the looks of it and long may it continue!
