Dalglish: History shouldn't hamper Rovers

This Is Lancashire: Kenny Dalglish Kenny Dalglish

KENNY Dalglish hopes Blackburn Rovers will be inspired by the 20th anniversary of the club’s Premier League title triumph next season – rather than being weighed down by history.

Dalglish was the manager when Rovers incredibly won the title during 1994/95 campaign and the club have already started a year of anniversary celebrations by handing out 20 ‘golden season tickets’ to fans.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph about his memories of Rovers’ Premier League glory, the Scot has also made clear that he hopes the club can enjoy success again soon.

Rovers will be attempting to find a way back to the top flight next term, after dropping out of the Premier League in 2012.

Dalglish is happy that the club have decided to celebrate the anniversary of the 1994/95 season and has urged the current squad to use that history as a positive.

“They shouldn’t see what we did as a noose round their neck,” insisted the 63-year-old.

“The club should be very proud of that history and try to finish as high in the league as they can.

“I hope they do well.”

Rovers handed out their first golden season ticket on Tuesday morning, which boss Gary Bowyer awarded to nine-year-old fan Matthew Spencer.

The club have also selected five more golden season ticket winners after asking fans to nominate people who deserve the prize.

Rovers received around 400 nominations in less than 48 hours, and are now contacting the winners of the tickets.

Fourteen more golden season tickets will be given out before the start of the season, with details to be announced in due course.

Dalglish thinks it is right that Rovers mark the 20th anniversary of 1994/95, when the club pipped Manchester United and the rest of the traditional big city clubs to the title.

No club of Rovers’ size has achieved the same feat since, or even come close.

Dalglish is currently a non-executive director at Liverpool after a second spell as manager at Anfield between 2011 and 2012, but he will always hold great affection for Rovers after four years as the club’s boss.

“If you can’t look back and enjoy those achievements, there’s something wrong,” he said.

“They should enjoy it. It was a great achievement and I know the fans enjoyed it at the time. They were great, they supported us so well and it was a dream for them.

“It was a fairytale.”

Rovers winger Josh King could make his second appearance for Norway in the space of five days when they host Russia in a friendly tonight. Norway lost 4-0 in France on Tuesday.

Smelly Jim stopped going.

Actually Venkys did him a favour by being the fall guy of hia glory support.

He's just peed they didn't live up to his expectations by selling off the silverware and plunging us into administration so him and his tinpot friends could buy it back for two pints of lager and a packet of crisps.

He hates me because I laugh at his pathetic attempts to scare us that the sky is still falling.

Absolutely nothing. And your point is? Whether I've "done anything" or not is irrelevant. This isn't about what I have done or not done for that matter, it is about what the Venkys have done and what supine lickspittles like yourself and the other Venky deniers /apologists have done - amongst other things propagating the fan blame fallacy.

Your attempt at demagoguery by once again tunneling under and then thieving the moral high ground gets the risible response it deserves.

If Preston, Blackpool, Rochdale, Bury, Oldham, Southport, Bolton, Chester, Wrexham, Stockport or Burnley had the equivalent of £100m from 1991 - £500m today pumped in, then they could do it. It would be buying success though, wouldn't it.

...never in your life time or for that matter the life time of the sun, moon, solar system or universe...

Hi Rovers. I feel fine thanks. You still seem to be P?issing down your own trouser leg. Something wrong short stop. Smashing lad for not denying you bought that title you limp tart.
Hello mardarse....the only person p!ssing....crying and tediously bleeting is you...have you been out on the lash today, you font seem your usual self?

...read it and weep:

Reappraisal.

Jimmy Pierce looks back at the Blackburn Rovers' team of 1994-1995 to dispel the myth that the club simply spent their way to the Premier League trophy.

Ask anyone to summarise how Blackburn managed to win their first League title for 81 years and they will undoubtedly recall Jack Walker's wealth, Alan Shearer's goals and his partnership with Chris Sutton (the "SAS") – probably in that order.

A quick internet search generates season reviews which invariably but frustratingly convey the message that "moneybags" Blackburn "bought their way to the title". While Rovers owe a huge debt of gratitude to their generous benefactor, which their fans continue to vociferously acknowledge, the emphasis on money is unjust and the assertion that they only won the league because of it is ignorant of the facts and holds no weight.

To win a league, a team must invest in playing staff. Rovers admittedly spent a considerable amount on their strike force, twice breaking the British transfer record and parting with £8.3 million, while also signing Tim Flowers in a record deal for a goalkeeper. However, in terms of financial outlay on the first team that won the league, that is just about it.

There is a mistaken assumption that the club also spent heavily on Graeme Le Saux, Colin Hendry and captain Tim Sherwood, perhaps because they became indispensable so quickly and were sold on for big profit. In fact, all three were acquired on the cheap: Hendry for £700,000, the same price the club sold him for two years earlier; Le Saux, who was out of favour at Chelsea, for around the same and Sherwood from Norwich City for a mere £400,000.

However, based on calculations of the reported transfer fees for the roughly first choice starting XIs of both clubs in the 1994-95 season (taking into account injuries and long-term suspension), Rovers spent far less than the incumbent champions, Manchester United. Peter Schmeichel, Denis Irwin, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Andrei Kanchelskis, Paul Ince, Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Brian McClair, Mark Hughes and Andy Cole cost £19.33m.

Whereas Tim Flowers, Henning Berg, Colin Hendry, Ian Pearce, Graham Le Saux, Stuart Ripley, Mark Atkins, Tim Sherwood, Jason Wilcox, Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton set Rovers back a comparatively low £14.7m. Given that these squads – in particular United's – took years to assemble, perhaps a fairer assessment would be to look at the 1994-95 spend in isolation. Even on this basis, United's outlay exceeded their rivals'.

Comparisons with other clubs are also favourable. Blackburn's entire back four cost less than Newcastle paid for Darren Peacock and less than half of the sum required to bring Phil Babb and John Scales to Liverpool. In Carlton Palmer, Leeds United spent more on a single midfielder than Rovers did across their starting midfield four – illustrating that Rovers' spending was largely limited to their front two and not wasted unlike so many others.

How Blackburn happened to accidentally hoodwink so many into believing this "bought the league" fallacy is partly because of their wilful blindness to some of Kenny Dalglish's shrewd forays in the transfer market and abundance of unsung heroes. Take Mark Atkins, for example. Signed from Scunthorpe United for £45,000 as a right-back, he filled in for the injured David Batty in central midfield and made 30 league appearances during the title-winning campaign, scoring six times – the well timed volley at home to Southampton being the pick of a number of sweet strikes.

Other astute additions to play major roles included Henning Berg, who was a relatively unknown 23-year-old at the time of his move from Lillestrom for under half a million, and the largely forgotten Chris Pearce, who had only made four senior appearances before he joined the club for £300,000 – both insignificant sums even then.

Also fundamental to Rovers' success was the organisation and desire instilled in the side and, pivotally, the width provided by Jasson Wilcox (who incidentally came through the youth ranks as a trainee) and Stuart Ripley. Despite lacking natural pace, they both had the knack of being able to create the half a yard required to deliver crosses into areas where Shearer and Sutton thrived, scoring 49 of Rovers' 80 league goals.

Rovers' rise was remarkable. Dalglish took over an 'unfashionable' club lying in the bottom half of the old Second Division and won promotion to the new Premier League at his first attempt. The following two seasons saw the club finish fourth and then runners-up, before being crowned Champions of England.

It is not disputed that the club were able to offer substantial wages to attract players, but they bought wisely rather than overly and deserved nothing less than the success they achieved. It is a story that is unlikely to happen again and one that should be celebrated with respect and admiration, rather than viewed as the 1990's version of Roman Abramovich's Chelsea or present day Manchester City.

Your attempt at demagoguery by once again tunneling under and then thieving the moral high ground gets the risible response it deserves.

Rhodes has been 'signed' for the past two years but according to the troll "He's going" every transfer window.
Rhodes and Trippier will go when it suits them but in Rhodes' case only to someone who can top £35,000 a week.

Reappraisal.

Jimmy Pierce looks back at the Blackburn Rovers' team of 1994-1995 to dispel the myth that the club simply spent their way to the Premier League trophy.

Ask anyone to summarise how Blackburn managed to win their first League title for 81 years and they will undoubtedly recall Jack Walker's wealth, Alan Shearer's goals and his partnership with Chris Sutton (the "SAS") – probably in that order.

A quick internet search generates season reviews which invariably but frustratingly convey the message that "moneybags" Blackburn "bought their way to the title". While Rovers owe a huge debt of gratitude to their generous benefactor, which their fans continue to vociferously acknowledge, the emphasis on money is unjust and the assertion that they only won the league because of it is ignorant of the facts and holds no weight.

To win a league, a team must invest in playing staff. Rovers admittedly spent a considerable amount on their strike force, twice breaking the British transfer record and parting with £8.3 million, while also signing Tim Flowers in a record deal for a goalkeeper. However, in terms of financial outlay on the first team that won the league, that is just about it.

There is a mistaken assumption that the club also spent heavily on Graeme Le Saux, Colin Hendry and captain Tim Sherwood, perhaps because they became indispensable so quickly and were sold on for big profit. In fact, all three were acquired on the cheap: Hendry for £700,000, the same price the club sold him for two years earlier; Le Saux, who was out of favour at Chelsea, for around the same and Sherwood from Norwich City for a mere £400,000.

However, based on calculations of the reported transfer fees for the roughly first choice starting XIs of both clubs in the 1994-95 season (taking into account injuries and long-term suspension), Rovers spent far less than the incumbent champions, Manchester United. Peter Schmeichel, Denis Irwin, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Andrei Kanchelskis, Paul Ince, Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Brian McClair, Mark Hughes and Andy Cole cost £19.33m.

Whereas Tim Flowers, Henning Berg, Colin Hendry, Ian Pearce, Graham Le Saux, Stuart Ripley, Mark Atkins, Tim Sherwood, Jason Wilcox, Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton set Rovers back a comparatively low £14.7m. Given that these squads – in particular United's – took years to assemble, perhaps a fairer assessment would be to look at the 1994-95 spend in isolation. Even on this basis, United's outlay exceeded their rivals'.

Comparisons with other clubs are also favourable. Blackburn's entire back four cost less than Newcastle paid for Darren Peacock and less than half of the sum required to bring Phil Babb and John Scales to Liverpool. In Carlton Palmer, Leeds United spent more on a single midfielder than Rovers did across their starting midfield four – illustrating that Rovers' spending was largely limited to their front two and not wasted unlike so many others.

How Blackburn happened to accidentally hoodwink so many into believing this "bought the league" fallacy is partly because of their wilful blindness to some of Kenny Dalglish's shrewd forays in the transfer market and abundance of unsung heroes. Take Mark Atkins, for example. Signed from Scunthorpe United for £45,000 as a right-back, he filled in for the injured David Batty in central midfield and made 30 league appearances during the title-winning campaign, scoring six times – the well timed volley at home to Southampton being the pick of a number of sweet strikes.

Other astute additions to play major roles included Henning Berg, who was a relatively unknown 23-year-old at the time of his move from Lillestrom for under half a million, and the largely forgotten Chris Pearce, who had only made four senior appearances before he joined the club for £300,000 – both insignificant sums even then.

Also fundamental to Rovers' success was the organisation and desire instilled in the side and, pivotally, the width provided by Jasson Wilcox (who incidentally came through the youth ranks as a trainee) and Stuart Ripley. Despite lacking natural pace, they both had the knack of being able to create the half a yard required to deliver crosses into areas where Shearer and Sutton thrived, scoring 49 of Rovers' 80 league goals.

Rovers' rise was remarkable. Dalglish took over an 'unfashionable' club lying in the bottom half of the old Second Division and won promotion to the new Premier League at his first attempt. The following two seasons saw the club finish fourth and then runners-up, before being crowned Champions of England.

It is not disputed that the club were able to offer substantial wages to attract players, but they bought wisely rather than overly and deserved nothing less than the success they achieved. It is a story that is unlikely to happen again and one that should be celebrated with respect and admiration, rather than viewed as the 1990's version of Roman Abramovich's Chelsea or present day Manchester City.

If Preston, Blackpool, Rochdale, Bury, Oldham, Southport, Bolton, Chester, Wrexham, Stockport or Burnley had the equivalent of £100m from 1991 - £500m today pumped in, then they could do it. It would be buying success though, wouldn't it.

Reappraisal.

Jimmy Pierce looks back at the Blackburn Rovers' team of 1994-1995 to dispel the myth that the club simply spent their way to the Premier League trophy.

Ask anyone to summarise how Blackburn managed to win their first League title for 81 years and they will undoubtedly recall Jack Walker's wealth, Alan Shearer's goals and his partnership with Chris Sutton (the "SAS") – probably in that order.

A quick internet search generates season reviews which invariably but frustratingly convey the message that "moneybags" Blackburn "bought their way to the title". While Rovers owe a huge debt of gratitude to their generous benefactor, which their fans continue to vociferously acknowledge, the emphasis on money is unjust and the assertion that they only won the league because of it is ignorant of the facts and holds no weight.

To win a league, a team must invest in playing staff. Rovers admittedly spent a considerable amount on their strike force, twice breaking the British transfer record and parting with £8.3 million, while also signing Tim Flowers in a record deal for a goalkeeper. However, in terms of financial outlay on the first team that won the league, that is just about it.

There is a mistaken assumption that the club also spent heavily on Graeme Le Saux, Colin Hendry and captain Tim Sherwood, perhaps because they became indispensable so quickly and were sold on for big profit. In fact, all three were acquired on the cheap: Hendry for £700,000, the same price the club sold him for two years earlier; Le Saux, who was out of favour at Chelsea, for around the same and Sherwood from Norwich City for a mere £400,000.

However, based on calculations of the reported transfer fees for the roughly first choice starting XIs of both clubs in the 1994-95 season (taking into account injuries and long-term suspension), Rovers spent far less than the incumbent champions, Manchester United. Peter Schmeichel, Denis Irwin, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Andrei Kanchelskis, Paul Ince, Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Brian McClair, Mark Hughes and Andy Cole cost £19.33m.

Whereas Tim Flowers, Henning Berg, Colin Hendry, Ian Pearce, Graham Le Saux, Stuart Ripley, Mark Atkins, Tim Sherwood, Jason Wilcox, Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton set Rovers back a comparatively low £14.7m. Given that these squads – in particular United's – took years to assemble, perhaps a fairer assessment would be to look at the 1994-95 spend in isolation. Even on this basis, United's outlay exceeded their rivals'.

Comparisons with other clubs are also favourable. Blackburn's entire back four cost less than Newcastle paid for Darren Peacock and less than half of the sum required to bring Phil Babb and John Scales to Liverpool. In Carlton Palmer, Leeds United spent more on a single midfielder than Rovers did across their starting midfield four – illustrating that Rovers' spending was largely limited to their front two and not wasted unlike so many others.

How Blackburn happened to accidentally hoodwink so many into believing this "bought the league" fallacy is partly because of their wilful blindness to some of Kenny Dalglish's shrewd forays in the transfer market and abundance of unsung heroes. Take Mark Atkins, for example. Signed from Scunthorpe United for £45,000 as a right-back, he filled in for the injured David Batty in central midfield and made 30 league appearances during the title-winning campaign, scoring six times – the well timed volley at home to Southampton being the pick of a number of sweet strikes.

Other astute additions to play major roles included Henning Berg, who was a relatively unknown 23-year-old at the time of his move from Lillestrom for under half a million, and the largely forgotten Chris Pearce, who had only made four senior appearances before he joined the club for £300,000 – both insignificant sums even then.

Also fundamental to Rovers' success was the organisation and desire instilled in the side and, pivotally, the width provided by Jasson Wilcox (who incidentally came through the youth ranks as a trainee) and Stuart Ripley. Despite lacking natural pace, they both had the knack of being able to create the half a yard required to deliver crosses into areas where Shearer and Sutton thrived, scoring 49 of Rovers' 80 league goals.

Rovers' rise was remarkable. Dalglish took over an 'unfashionable' club lying in the bottom half of the old Second Division and won promotion to the new Premier League at his first attempt. The following two seasons saw the club finish fourth and then runners-up, before being crowned Champions of England.

"Competition: Premier League
Market: Sean Dyche to be the next Southampton manager
Odds: 4/1 @ Ladbrokes

Despite Southampton suggesting big name continental manages have been very interested in the vacant job at the club, Burnley’s Sean Dyche has found himself in the running and second favourite to succeed Mauricio Pochettino, who has recently left the South Coast outfit to join London giants Tottenham Hotspur.

Dyche led Burnley to a very unfancied automatic promotion in 2013/14 with a small budget to work with. It’s thought he would jump at the chance to join a more stable club in Southampton.

As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 4/1 for Dyche to be the next Southampton manager this summer. He’s always maintained loyal to Burnley following their promotion by insisting he’s happy at the club and wants to keep them in the Premier League, but the chance to manage a side like Southampton certainly doesn’t come everyday, and should Saints approach him, he’d take little time to make the move."

You lot just can't seem to get over our incredible title win, despite it being 20 years ago. I understand how much it must have hurt you dingles given the life dominating hatred you have for Rovers but folk who've suffered pain on the level you lot clearly did tend to try and erase it from their minds and move on. We succeeded were many failed. Clubs like Newcastle and Leeds for example spent millions and have won zilch - or does that not count because they have a larger fan base due to being one club citys?

Smashing lad for not denying you bought that title you limp tart.[/p][/quote]You lot just can't seem to get over our incredible title win, despite it being 20 years ago. I understand how much it must have hurt you dingles given the life dominating hatred you have for Rovers but folk who've suffered pain on the level you lot clearly did tend to try and erase it from their minds and move on. We succeeded were many failed. Clubs like Newcastle and Leeds for example spent millions and have won zilch - or does that not count because they have a larger fan base due to being one club citys? more bans than ray - brfc lxxv

As there were no Welsh clubs in the premiership for the 94/95 season, strictly speaking 'Champions of England' is about right. Will refrain from calling you a moron as this would be an insult to morons.

Superficial happy-clapping; more concerned about the quick fix of the instant rush of a happy-clapp than the fabric of the club. Synthetic support and polyester passion. And wailing banshee's like you have the temerity to accuse those that are deeply concerned about the soul of the club of not supporting it.

The smarmy arrogance of the Venky Apologists will evaporate if an FFP embargo is implemented.
Without name calling and blaming others,can you tell me,other than writing on here, what you have actually done in material terms,about the situation regarding Venky's.
Absolutely nothing. And your point is? Whether I've "done anything" or not is irrelevant. This isn't about what I have done or not done for that matter, it is about what the Venkys have done and what supine lickspittles like yourself and the other Venky deniers /apologists have done - amongst other things propagating the fan blame fallacy.

Your attempt at demagoguery by once again tunneling under and then thieving the moral high ground gets the risible response it deserves.

Just engaging with people like you and the shouty foul mouthed kid and owd nick (self appointed oracle but i suspect a Venkys plant/stooge) makes me feel dirty, i feel like i need a thought transfusion after reading and then responding to your abusive self congratulatory clap trap.
So,you haven't done anything and are as guilty as everyone else.

Trippier's signed.
Of course he has, when a team is promoted players want new deals with Premier league wages. The new deal will almost certainly include clauses regarding offers from other clubs (if he does well next year)

So your point is .......

As you haven't much experience of following a Premier league team, albeit from behind a keyboard., I'll try to help you through it.

Seriously though when are you going to tire of this, every time you post you end up looking like a tool.

It is the English Premier League and the games ruling body is the (English) Football Association and so if a club wins it they are the Champions of England regardless of whether there are Welsh clubs in it or not.

Sean Dyche is to be first in line to become the manager of SFC. Not the big name Saints fans are looking for.
Burnley to then be offered no more than £4m for Danny Ings which with Dyche at SFC should be enough for Ings to hand in a transfer request.

It is the English Premier League and the games ruling body is the (English) Football Association and so if a club wins it they are the Champions of England regardless of whether there are Welsh clubs in it or not.

Away with your feeble attempts at sophistry. If i wanted smartarse semantic pedantry I'd engage with Welsh Rover, now he does take sophistry to a whole new level of up-your-own-backside

You know, seeing as how it wasn't fallacious but based on you saying one thing and doing another. My apologies nonetheless.

If Preston, Blackpool, Rochdale, Bury, Oldham, Southport, Bolton, Chester, Wrexham, Stockport or Burnley had the equivalent of £100m from 1991 - £500m today pumped in, then they could do it. It would be buying success though, wouldn't it.
Heyyyyy wait a minute... A dingle with facts? Nope, didn't think so...

Oh forgot to mention when calculating the finance you came up with being £100m.... it was a quarter of that at less than £25m, which the same website claims would be £43,402,500.00 today....

So all you dingle Einsteins, while you start trying to work out what I have just revealed to you in facts, have a think about this one... You get the £120,000,000.00 this year that you have been bragging about constantly, this is the same as £69,120,442.37 in 1994... Sooooo, I guess this means you are going to win the premiership this year eh? Stick a bet on, the odds are terrific and a dead cert at 7500/1 hahahahahahahahahaha

There were no cheap jibes about spelling, merely highlighting how you're so keen to have your bilious tripe read by others that you don't bother to take the time to read over it yourself. Rant, rant, rant, send. If you took a step back and considered what you've wrote you might see some of the same nonsense that the rest of us do. Actually, no...

As for betraying my real attitude towards the working man's game, behave yourself you daft sod. I'm calling you a pleb (although not in the literal sense, it's slang for idiot where I'm from), not everybody who watches football. It was a play on words.

I suppose I should go and report back to my masters in India now, eh?
...and breath.

Feel better now?

It is interesting how you Venky Deniers assume any one who disagrees with your flaccid views are "trolls", "Dingles", "multiple account holders" and your best semantic sleight of hand is to create a false dichotomy between "protesters" and "fans" as if protesters aren't fans as well.

The rest of your diatribe was the usual smarmy arrogant tosh.

And your closing remark made no sense whatsoever.

Get s grip man.

Couldn't resist the bait could you?

And that is what people like you are.

Also, the snide "plebsite" remark betrays your real attitude towards the working mans game.

Hahaha, more hypocrisy. I didn't call you a troll because we have a difference of opinion - that's your 'thing' - I called you a troll because you literally owned up to trying to 'bait' me into a response, no doubt to start an argument. That's trolling, end of.

All this nonsense about 'semantic sleight of hand' and 'creating a false dichotomy' is also your 'thing', you're the one constantly labelling your fellow Rovers fans in every other post if they don't agree with your point of view, not me, pal.

You are also the most smarmy, arrogant poster on here by a country mile. Your use of words that no normal person would use in every day conversation only serves to highlight how much you need to be seen as everyone's intellectual superior. You're clearly not though. I think you're hiding behind a thesaurus and a word-a-day calendar if truth be told. As for my last comment, of course it made sense you complete buffoon. It's a reference to your comments about some of us 'happy clappers' being 'Venky's plants'. It wasn't exactly difficult to understand.

I've already broken my rule about not replying to trolls once, I shan't be doing it again. We're done here, back under your bridge.
