Rovers - Above and Beyond All Else
Vital Blackburn`s most recent poll, asked Would You Rather See Rovers Win The Premiership Or England Win Euro 2008? In a unanimous result it would appear that Rovers fans are not the most patriotic.
Now this is perhaps a slightly unfair question and indeed judgement due to the wide geographical base of Rovers fans. We have dedicated followers of Rovers on this site representing countries such as Australia, Turkey, Ireland and more recently Paraguay.
However, if anything it does test the support afforded, by the majority of us, to England. Why is this? Why would we rather see OUR team do better than the national side?
Well I think there are a few contributing factors, none more pertinent than the disregard and ignorance shown to Rovers by the F.A. and leading English coaches. It seems to have created something of a thick skin on Rovers fans who have become more keen on domestic affairs rather than those of a national standard because Rovers players are never considered.
Granted in recent years we haven`t exactly had world beaters but in Chris Sutton way back when, David Dunn and more recently David Bentley, we have had regular consistent performers who simply were not given a chance.
Few can blame us for looking after our own.
So in summary
Win Premiership - 85%
England Win Euro 2008 - 15%
