Blackburn Rovers presentation

Blackburn Rovers Odds

Blackburn Rovers have a rich history of FA Cup wins in their early days, as well as a reputation for sliding in and out of the English football divisions.

Blackburn Rovers relegation odds can be a popular choice amongst bettors, as can Blackburn Rovers odds for promotion. When betting on a league like the Championship, it’s best to be aware that in this league, nothing is a surprise.

So odds on Blackburn Rovers to be relegated are often considered, but as well as outrights, bookmakers can offer special promotions on individual matches. For example, Blackburn Rovers v Burnley odds could be subject to a bookmaker promotion because of the rivalry between the two, bookmakers like Betfair could offer enhanced odds, for example.

As well as betting on what happens on the pitch, bookmakers offer odds on what happens off it, too. Blackburn Rovers manager odds in particular can be common. 

History

Blackburn Rovers are a professional football team based in Blackburn, Lancashire. One of only six teams to win the Premier League title, the club currently plays in the English second tier, the Championship.

The history of Blackburn Rovers begins in 1875. John Lewis and Arthur Constantine arranged the meeting to discuss whether forming a football team would be a popular idea. It was, and the following month Blackburn Rovers played their first game.

In 1878, Blackburn Rovers became one of the founding members of the Lancashire Football Association. A year later, the club appeared in the FA Cup for the first time in Blackburn Rovers history, but they were eliminated in the third round.

Four years later and Blackburn reached the FA Cup Final, although they were beaten by Old Etonians.

Blackburn Rovers didn’t have to wait too long to pick up the FA Cup. The following season, Rovers won the FA Cup for the first time, and won it twice more over the next two seasons, becoming the first side to win three FA Cups in a row.

In the 1885/1886 season, Blackburn turned professional. The club’s total bill on Blackburn Rovers player wages was reported to be £615.

In 1888, Blackburn Rovers became founder members of the Football League. Two seasons later, Blackburn reached another FA Cup Final, which again ended in victory for Rovers. Blackburn Rovers beat Sheffield Wednesday, and William Townley made history in this game, becoming the first player to score a hat-trick in the final of an FA Cup.

Blackburn again won consecutive FA Cups, beating Notts County in the 1890/1891 FA Cup Final. 

Blackburn’s league form, however, couldn’t match their cup form and in the 1897/1898 season the club only retained their place in the First Division because the league was being expanded.

In the early years of the 20th century, Blackburn’s league form began to get better. Their stadium Ewood Park underwent reconstruction to extend the stadium with their fan base growing thanks to their success.

Blackburn Rovers started the 1910’s with a First Division title, followed up with another in the 1913/1914 season. In the following decade, Blackburn Rovers won another FA Cup, but more silverware wouldn’t arrive at Ewood Park for another 70 years.

Following their title wins, Blackburn had established themselves as a steady First Division side. Mid-table finishes became the norm until the club suffered the first relegation in Blackburn history in the 1935/1936 season.

The club did regain their First Division status, only to be relegated again in the 1947/1948 season. The 1948/1949 season was the first of ten consecutive seasons spent in the Second Division.

Blackburn Rovers were promoted again in 1958 and established themselves once more with a series of mid table finishes. The club reached another FA Cup Final in 1960, but were beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The club’s league form started to falter, and Blackburn Rovers found themselves relegated to the Second Division in 1966.

Instead of promotion, Blackburn Rovers instead were trying to ward off a further relegation. They didn’t succeed. Throughout the 1970’s, the club were yo yoing between the Second and Third Divisions. 

In 1980, Blackburn finished second in the Third Division, enough to see them promoted back to the second tier of English football. Only goal difference stopped the club from achieving back-to-back promotions. Following that near miss, the club spent the next three seasons floating around mid-table. Another near promotion was followed by a close shave with relegation and Bobby Saxton, who had replaced the promotion gaining Howard Kendall, was fired.

Don Mackay took over, and for the next three seasons Blackburn Rovers made serious attempts at gaining promotion, but each time they just missed out. 

In the 1989/1990 season, Jack Walker launched a successful takeover of the club. Investing a huge amount of money in the playing staff, as well as bringing in Kenny Dalglish as Blackburn Rovers manager, the club were promoted via the play-offs and became founder members of the newly formed Premier League.

That summer, Blackburn Rovers broke the English transfer record. They paid Southampton £3.5 million for Alan Shearer, who would turn out to be one of the key signings in all of Blackburn Rovers’ transfer history.

Life in the Premier League started well for Blackburn Rovers, with finishes of fourth and second in their first two seasons. In the 1994/1995 season, Blackburn Rovers won the Premier League.

The following season, however, Blackburn started poorly. Dalglish had left the manager’s job to become Blackburn Rovers Director of Football, and his assistant Ray Harford had taken over. Their Champions League campaign was a poor one too, eliminated after finishing bottom of the group.

The 1996/1997 season started just as badly as the previous campaign had. No wins in their first ten games led Ray Harford to resign. Tony Parkes became caretaker manager and Blackburn managed to keep hold of their Premier League status.

The following seasons saw more poor performances and more changes in management. Things appeared to look up when Roy Hodgson came in and led the club to UEFA Cup qualification, but the subsequent season was again poor. Hodgson left and Brian Kidd came in. 

Kidd couldn’t save Blackburn Rovers from the drop, and in 1999, just four years after winning the Premier League title, the club were back in the second tier.

Performances continued to drop, and Kidd was sacked. Graeme Souness was given the task of taking Blackburn Rovers back to the Premier League.

Just after the 2000/2001 season began, Jack Walker, the man responsible for the club’s Premier League success, passed away. The club managed to finish as runners up, securing their place back in the Premier League.

The following season, Blackburn Rovers won the first League Cup in their history. Success continued when in the following season Blackburn qualified for the UEFA Cup for a second consecutive season.

After the 2004/2005 season began, Graeme Souness left. Souness went to become Newcastle United manager and was replaced by Mark Hughes. Hughes continued the good form of his predecessor and led his team to European qualification once again.

Once again, though, Blackburn lost their manager to another Premier League side. Mark Hughes left the club to join Manchester City, and Paul Ince replaced him. However, Ince couldn’t replicate the form shown under the previous two managers and lost his job at the end of 2008.

Sam Allardyce was given the Blackburn Rovers manager’s job and began to steady the ship. Then, in 2010, Venky’s London Limited bought the club. Allardyce was fired immediately and the new owners installed Steve Kean as boss.

Despite the takeover, Blackburn’s finances were in a bad state. This affected matters on the pitch, adding to that surrounding the controversial Steve Kean appointment, and the club were relegated in 2012. 

Fans protests surrounding the manager were finally listed to, and Kean was fired. A 17th place finish in the 2012/2013 season was followed up with an eighth and ninth place finish.

Crest

The first Blackburn Rovers badge was the Maltese Cross. This was the first Blackburn Rovers football badge to be used on kits, worn between 1875 and 1882.

During the club’s early FA Cup Final appearances, the club wore the Lancashire coat of arms as their badge. In all eight of Blackburn Rovers’ FA Cup Finals, this crest was worn.

A Blackburn Rovers football crest wasn’t used regularly until 1974. In 1974, a new Blackburn Rovers badge was created. This featured a Lancashire Red Rose and the initials BRFC underneath. This Blackburn badge was worn until 1989.

The current badge used on Blackburn Rovers kits was created and worn for the first time in 1989. This badge featured an updated Lancashire red rose, encased in a circle shape. The team name and date of formation is placed in the circumference. The club’s motto ‘Arte Et Labore’, meaning By skill or by labour, features at the bottom.

Colours

Blackburn Rovers colours are famous for their half blue half white shirts. This has always been the kit of Blackburn Rovers, though the shade of blue has changed from light blue to royal blue.

Shorts and socks colours have alternated also. White shorts have been worn with almost every Blackburn Rovers kit, but on occasion this colour has changed to blue. The sock colour has changed more frequently, with the socks alternating from blue to white to a combination of the two.

In the 2016/2017 season, the Blackburn Rovers home kit consisted of a half blue half white shirt, white shorts and blue socks.

Blackburn Rovers Stadium

The Blackburn Rovers stadium is Ewood Park. Before the club moved here in 1882, Blackburn had played at various venues, including Leamington Road, Alexandra Meadow, Pleasington Cricket Ground and Oozehead Ground.

The Blackburn Rovers stadium capacity currently stands at 31,367. After the ground underwent a reconstruction, the Blackburn Rovers stadium layout features four main stands - The Jack Walker Stand, The Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End, The RFS Riverside Stand and The Bryan Douglas Darwen End.

Supporters

The majority of Blackburn supporters come from Blackburn and other parts of Lancashire. They have a large following across the country, though, and in other parts of the world. There are many Blackburn Rovers supporters clubs, including the BRFCS

There is also a Blackburn Rovers Supporters Football Club, that is registered with the Lancashire Football Association.

Blackburn Rovers’ biggest rivals are Burnley. When these two teams meet, the occasion is called the East Lancashire derby, or the Cotton Mills derby, coming from the fact that Blackburn and Burnley were mill towns.

Ownership

In 2010, Venky’s London Ltd was formed and through this company, 99.9% of shares were bought in Blackburn Rovers.

Since Venky’s took control of the football club, thousands of Blackburn Rovers fans have protested against the new owners. With Venky’s said to be in over £100 million worth of debt, there are huge worries that the financial future of Blackburn Rovers is at risk.

Jack Walker had taken control of Blackburn Rovers in 1991, with the dream of turning his boyhood club into England’s greatest club. Walker purchased a variety of high profile players, including Alan Shearer, and his investment dream came true when the club won the Premier League title.

Walker also paid for Ewood Park to be completely redeveloped. The cost of this work is said to have been around £20 million.

Stats

Blackburn Rovers stats begin with their all time record appearance maker. Derek Fazackerley holds that record, making 593 appearances for Blackburn Rovers from 1970 to 1987.

The highest attendance ever at Ewood Park is 62,255. This number of spectators watched Blackburn take on Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup in 1929.

The highest transfer fee Blackburn Rovers have paid for a player is £8 million, a fee paid to Manchester United for Andy Cole in 2001. This fee was paid to Middlesbrough too, for the services of Jordan Rhodes in 2012.

 The highest transfer fee Blackburn Rovers have ever received is £18 million. This fee was paid by Manchester City for Roque Santa Cruz in 2009.

Blackburn Rovers’ record win is 11-0. Blackburn beat Rossendale United in the FA Cup in 1884 by this scoreline.

The club’s record defeat is 8-0, and this actually happened on two occasions. Firstly, against Arsenal in the First Division in 1933, and then against Lincoln City in the Second Division in 1953.

Honours
