Match Of The Past: Blackburn Rovers
This morning, we return to our series of videos of the clubs of the Football League Championship with another of those relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers is a club whose initial decline arguably started with the advent of television, which makes archive footage of them a little difficult to find, but we do have six matches for you today from the years between 1968 and 1994, kicking off with a trip to Craven Cottage to play Fulham in 1968, and this is followed with a home match against Sheffield United from the 1969/70 season.
We then have two matches from the 1980s. First up is an away match against Swindon Town from the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in January 1984, and then comes a home match against Aston Villa from 1988. We then have two matches from the early 1990s, as Jack Walker built the club back up. First up is an away match against Grimsby Town from the 1991/92 season, which ended with the club getting promotion into the Premier League, and our final match demonstrates how well they settled once there – it’s a home thrashing of Liverpool from the following season.
