Dalglish: Stepping down as Blackburn Rovers boss was emotional

This Is Lancashire: Kenny Dalglish faces the press on his first day as Blackburn Rovers boss Kenny Dalglish faces the press on his first day as Blackburn Rovers boss

AS far as turning points go, the moment Kenny Dalglish stepped down as manager was a pretty big one for Blackburn Rovers. He admits the decision was far from easy.

It was the summer of 1995 and Dalglish had just remarkably guided Rovers to the Premier League title.

Unquestionably he had achieved what he set out to do when he took over as Rovers boss four years earlier.

It would always have been difficult to top or even match what had happened during that incredible 1994/95 campaign.

On June 25, 1995, it was announced that Dalglish was stepping down as boss.

His assistant manager Ray Harford would take over, and Dalglish would move upstairs to a new role as director of football.

Ultimately, it did not go well for Rovers. With few signings that summer to capitalise on their success, they finished seventh in the Premier League and crashed out of the Champions League in the group stage.

Never again would they reach the heights of 1995.

Dalglish’s decision was a selfless act, out of appreciation for the work Harford had done during his time at Ewood Park.

But that did not make it any easier.

“It was emotional, you don’t make any decision without emotion,” Dalglish reflects now.

“It wasn’t an easy decision but Ray deserved his chance.

“He was a brilliant coach and I felt he deserved his shot at management at the club.

“So although it wasn’t easy, I felt it was the right decision.”

The decision to become Rovers manager in the first place was perhaps a little easier.

Dalglish had resigned as Liverpool boss only eight months earlier, wanting a break from football after the stresses of management and the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster, when he had attended the funerals of so many of those who died.

The chance to take over a mid-table Second Division club at that point might not have seemed the most attractive offer at first glance, but Dalglish quickly understood how determined Rovers were to become so much more than that.

“I just got a phone call from Bill Fox the chairman, asking if I would be interested,” Dalglish recalls.

“Bill came to see me, and I met Jack Walker too. It wasn’t an overnight decision, but it wasn’t prolonged either. I took the job because of the people there.”

During his discussions with the club, Dalglish was keen to make sure that he had the right backroom staff around him.

Harford was brought in after a spell in charge of Wimbledon, while club stalwart Tony Parkes stayed on the coaching staff after a creditable spell as caretaker manager.

“I really wanted Tony to be part of it because he completely understood the club and its history,” Dalglish said.

“He had done really well to take the team from 18th in the table when Don Mackay left to halfway when I arrived in October.

“Tony and Ray Harford were both fantastic for us.”

Under Dalglish, attendances at Ewood Park grew steadily. An average gate of 8,126 in 1990/91 rose to 13,251 by the end of his first season in charge, and reached 25,272 by the Premier League title winning campaign of 1994/95.

“By the end we were getting fantastic crowds in the Premier League, but even at the start with 10,000 there the supporters were great,” he said.

Rovers had plenty of work to do to reach the top flight when Dalglish took over.

He might have been forgiven at time for taking a long-term strategy for getting Rovers into the Premier League, but the Scot’s philosophy has always been a simple but pretty effective one.

He had no thoughts of ‘five-year plans’.

“No, we just tried to win as many games as we could and see what happened,” Dalglish says now.

“Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today?”

Indeed once Dalglish arrived, Rovers were in no mood to hang around.

They won 14 of their next 20 league games to charge to the summit of the Second Division table, before things got a little more dramatic towards the end of that 1991/92 season.

“We were top of the league but I think we hardly won a game once we were top,” Dalglish remembers.

“I think we were sixth or seventh going into the final game of the season at Plymouth, but then David Speedie scored a hat-trick to get us into the play-offs.

“Then we were 2-0 down against Derby after 12 minutes in the play-offs, but we came back to win 4-2. Kevin Moran scored a header for us in the second leg at Derby.

“Then obviously David Speedie was brought down for the penalty in the final at Wembley and Mike Newell stuck it away.

“To get promotion in that first season was a great achievement.

“The final whistle was an emotive moment, for the players and for everyone.”

Emotion is never far away when Dalglish describes his time at Ewood Park.

It is why he always enjoys talking about Blackburn Rovers.

If Liverpool undoubtedly mean so much to him, so too do Rovers.

In four years as manager at Ewood, a bond was formed that will never be broken.

History that can never be repeated again by any small town club thanks to FFP.

Dingles don't know what this felt like so can never appreciate what this means to them having now achieved Promotion. Even if a rich benefactor comes in for Burnley and keeps them in the Premiership, FFP would effectively stop them ever getting the investment needed to win a Premiership title.

As it is, the smaller teams will now just yo-yo up and down the leagues and Premiership promotion will just mean a chance to play in the top tier and get some extra dosh with never a chance of actually winning it.

That is why the big clubs will lord it over football for years to come. FFP is supposed to produce a level playing field, but all it will achieve is making the rich clubs richer and lead to an eventual European super league which proper football fans do not want. Can you imagine fans travelling all over Europe to away matches? Only millionaires, the prawn sandwich brigade will be able to do that. The lower league clubs will go back to Sunday league football or even just pub teams for the ordinary supporter.

Hmm..more than a little revisionism here, I think. A magnanimous act to give Ray his chance? I don't think so. I thought management was the last thing Ray wanted and he actually needed some persuasion. I think there is a whole other story here!

History that was already made by a small town club when Burnley won the English League title on TWO occasions. The arrogance of the no-dads is truly astounding.

Read the history books Mungo, we've been there, done that, and then done it again, and all without the ill gotten gains of a simple old man.

Keep looking up, your worst nightmare is now a reality, Burnley are IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE!

FFP is going to be the final nail in Blackburn Rovers coffin, and it couldn't happen to a nicer club, enjoy your years in the wilderness.

LOL!

This would suggest otherwise....


"Rovers posted a pre-tax loss of £36.5m after losing £11.7m on player trading – more than the £30m predicted by supporters’ group The Rovers Trust last month.

Net debt has shot up from £24.5m to £54.5m.

Turnover was down £27.3m from £54.2m to £26.9m after a drop of £23.2m in TV money.

Wages were down from £50m to £36m. However the wage-to-turnover ratio rose from 92.2 per cent to 136.1 per cent.

The club lost £1.1m in ticket sales and £3m in commercial income as average attendance fell 33.5 per cent from 22,551 to 14,997.

Mr Shaw said the club faced a ‘challenging task’ of meeting the new Financial Fair Play regulations which come into play next season."

History that was already made by a small town club when Burnley won the English League title on TWO occasions. The arrogance of the no-dads is truly astounding.

Read the history books Mungo, we've been there, done that, and then done it again, and all without the ill gotten gains of a simple old man.

Keep looking up, your worst nightmare is now a reality, Burnley are IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE!

FFP is going to be the final nail in Blackburn Rovers coffin, and it couldn't happen to a nicer club, enjoy your years in the wilderness.

LOL!
Thick as a plank yawwwwwnnnn :-)
Burnley won the English title twice but because it was half a century ago Super_Coward witnessed none of it. You'll find those that did have far more class than the spineless troll.
That's just another reason this parasite is how it is. Never seen any real success so gets a wide on at the least little thing.

This would suggest otherwise....


"Rovers posted a pre-tax loss of £36.5m after losing £11.7m on player trading – more than the £30m predicted by supporters’ group The Rovers Trust last month.

Net debt has shot up from £24.5m to £54.5m.

Turnover was down £27.3m from £54.2m to £26.9m after a drop of £23.2m in TV money.

Wages were down from £50m to £36m. However the wage-to-turnover ratio rose from 92.2 per cent to 136.1 per cent.

The club lost £1.1m in ticket sales and £3m in commercial income as average attendance fell 33.5 per cent from 22,551 to 14,997.

Mr Shaw said the club faced a ‘challenging task’ of meeting the new Financial Fair Play regulations which come into play next season."

Hello knobhead, the first time you won it, 1920 I think, you actually bought in 6 players pre-season and another 9 as the season progressed, if I remember correctly you won the last game of the season at Man City to take the title.

Now as far as I am concerned even in those long gone days that qualifies you for the tag of "Bought the Title".

Kenny knew the team had punched above its weight, needed strengthening and had identified targets, but was refused funds.

The lower league clubs will go back to Sunday league football or even just pub teams for the ordinary supporter.
The sooner the European Super League happens the better – and the sooner we can get back to the football that was the staple diet of the ordinary football fan before Sky came in, trampled all over us and wrecked the game as we knew it, fostering corruption and attracting the vermin of super agents, oligarchs and middle eastern sheiks along the way.

No, sadly the game will never be the same again without Man Utd, Chelsea, City, Arsenal and maybe Liverpool. But the fans of teams like Blackburn, Burnley, Wigan, Stoke, Aston Villa and, yes, Swansea, Cardiff and Norwich can dream again of one day feeling the thrill and basking in the glory of winning the title…

The lower league clubs will go back to Sunday league football or even just pub teams for the ordinary supporter.[/p][/quote]The sooner the European Super League happens the better – and the sooner we can get back to the football that was the staple diet of the ordinary football fan before Sky came in, trampled all over us and wrecked the game as we knew it, fostering corruption and attracting the vermin of super agents, oligarchs and middle eastern sheiks along the way. No, sadly the game will never be the same again without Man Utd, Chelsea, City, Arsenal and maybe Liverpool. But the fans of teams like Blackburn, Burnley, Wigan, Stoke, Aston Villa and, yes, Swansea, Cardiff and Norwich can dream again of one day feeling the thrill and basking in the glory of winning the title… Rover47

History that can never be repeated again by any small town club thanks to FFP.

Dingles don't know what this felt like so can never appreciate what this means to them having now achieved Promotion. Even if a rich benefactor comes in for Burnley and keeps them in the Premiership, FFP would effectively stop them ever getting the investment needed to win a Premiership title.

As it is, the smaller teams will now just yo-yo up and down the leagues and Premiership promotion will just mean a chance to play in the top tier and get some extra dosh with never a chance of actually winning it.
History that was already made by a small town club when Burnley won the English League title on TWO occasions. The arrogance of the no-dads is truly astounding.

Read the history books Mungo, we've been there, done that, and then done it again, and all without the ill gotten gains of a simple old man.

Keep looking up, your worst nightmare is now a reality, Burnley are IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE!

FFP is going to be the final nail in Blackburn Rovers coffin, and it couldn't happen to a nicer club, enjoy your years in the wilderness.

LOL!
What about the simple old man whom kept Burnley afloat a certain BOB LORD read your own history buffhead.

We've won it twice without having to throw money at it, that's why you're on here trying to deny your shame every day.

We can all see through you old man. Your whole life revolves around supporting a team that had never earned it's position in the top flight and now that the money has gone, we can see you clowns for what you really are. A desperate, mid-table team of no-hopers about to be molested by FFP.

We on the other hand have rightfully earned our position as a member of the elite, we are now £120million richer, whilst your debts are spiralling out of control, and I for one am going to spend every single day reminding you fools of your new position.

Suck it up you dribbling old fool.

sixties classic track from the Darwen End terraces

Bob Lord was a butcher
he sold sh*t meat pies
he sold them to the Burnley fans
and half the clarets died....

Note: suppose that would explain their poor attendances then!!

I don't suppose the true story will ever come out, but my information at the time was that, having won the title, Uncle Jack decided the club had now to become self-sufficient.

Kenny knew the team had punched above its weight, needed strengthening and had identified targets, but was refused funds.

Hence the strange turn of events and Harford, being told he would have to work with the players who had won the title, saying: "If it ain't broke, don't mend it."
Yup - that was the understanding at the time. It's hard to see Kenny walking away if there was enough money available to strengthen further and compete in the Champions League and the Premiership.

If we are bragging about winning the English League then the Rovers also won that twice. In 1912 and 1914. Yes, Burnley also may have won it twice, but will they ever win the PL ?

Yes there was talked that Kenny wanted to push on from the league title to greater things but Jack more or less said enough is enough and wanted the club to become more self sufficient something that didn't sit well with Kenny hench his decision to give Ray the chance in effect Jack had created a Monster that had gone out of control
