Will Gally Win His Spurs ?


Recommended Posts

On the 24th February 2002 Blackburn won the Worthington Cup, beating Tottenham 2-1 in Cardiff, thanks to a winning goal by Andy Cole after Spurs had equalised an early goal by Matt Jansen. A win that gave the supporters again the taste of the success that they had experienced during the reign of Kenny Daglish and more importantly the win kick started Rovers climb away from the relegation zone.

Whilst we should not dwell on past glories, except when baiting Burnley, who says history doesn’t repeat itself, a Rovers could win against Spurs on Saturday, could again give the team confidence to build on the win against Everton and to start climbing the table. It would also reassure the supporters that the Everton win wasn’t just a fluke result.

Although midfielder Tugay has been passed fit, after missing last week’s game at Old Trafford, Rovers will again be without the suspended Andy Cole and Lucas Neill.

The starting line up more than probably will be the same team that started against Manchester United, however noises emulating from Ewood this week would suggest that Blackburn's academy developed youngster Paul Gallagher could make his starting debut, as manager Souness attempts to end the goal drought.

Whilst at this stage we can only assume Saturday’s starting line up, what can be certain is the supporters must again, as for the Everton game act as the 12 man, in giving the team their full vocal support up to the final whistle.

As soon as the squad is announced it will appear here……………………….
