Has there ever been a club as pointless as Blackburn?
It is etched in my memory our defeat there in 1995 and as we left the ground loads of Newcastle fans were going way over the top in wishing Blackburn well in their quest to beat Manchester United to the title. Not that I wanted Man.U. to prosper but maybe I had a premonition of how crap the Ewood Park crowd was.
Fast forward to the next season and the defeat at Ewood Park was one of a handful that killed off our title effort in the final weeks of the season.
Their supporters celebrated like it was…1995! It was almost as if they were closet Man.U. fans which might not be far from the truth if you quizzed many Rovers’ regulars, tickets for Blackburn a lot cheaper and available.
