I’m 25 year old from Melbourne.

My Rovers story is quite unique - I never really had a football team when I was younger as I was Aussie Rules & cricket fan.

Football started to grow on me more & more as I started hanging out with mates playing FIFA. All my mates supported Man u, Liverpool & Arsenal however I wasn’t sold.

I started watching a few premier league games and liked Southampton’s yellow away kit and was impressed by a grey haired Mark Hughes, but the time I looked back he had gone & I lost interest in them. Once he reared his head in Blackburn I caught on at the tail end of the promotion season and was sold as they were now in the premier league.

Since then, what was initially a “token EPL team” has grown into an obsession. After travelling Europe last year I moved into Manchester, bought a season ticket followed Blackburn around for 12 consecutive games (home & away).

Unfortunately after 4 months of no luck finding a marketing job in the North West I reluctantly packed my bags and went home. Since then I’ve been having withdrawal symptoms & would like to get back over however I can’t afford to put my career on hold again.

I have made early plans to catch 6-7 games in March/April next year – however the current state of the club has me a little disillusioned and had me second guessing my plans.
