Profile

Blackburn Rovers are managed by Owen Coyle who replaced Paul Lambert in June 2016. The appointment caused some controversy as Coyle had previously take charge of the club's rivals Burnley, meaning he'll be keen to race out of the blocks as he bids to win over the doubters.

Rovers famously hoisted the Premier League trophy back in 1994/95 under manager Kenny Dalglish, with a team consisting of the likes of Alan Shearer, Tim Sherwood, Chris Sutton, and Colin Hendry. However, since that famous season the club have only managed to win two trophies, the League Cup (2002) and the UEFA Intertoto Cup (2007), and if truth be told it may be some time until they claim another, although promotion back up to the top-flight is the main goal.
