VILLA, Pre Match Review..


Recommended Posts

What is happening at Ewood Park, when the club should be concentrating on Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Aston Villa and the task of drawing away from the relegation zone, the main headlines are regarding bust ups between manager Graeme Souness and his former Manchester United strikers, Yorke and Cole, plus alleged derogatory remarks about Blackburn by one of his defenders, Lucas Neill, to an Australian magazine.

The only saving grace for Rovers at the moment is the poor form of the clubs below them. A couple of wins by any of those clubs would put Rovers in deep trouble, yet it appears that if press reports are true, Blackburn’s players are oblivious to their precarious position. These sort of outbursts and media stories don’t bode well on team moral and doesn’t give the already worried supporters confidence that the current team is aware of their plight or in their ability to battle their way out of this difficult situation.

With Villa on a high after last weekends 4-0 victory against Wolves, this is no easy game for Blackburn, who now haven’t won since the 1-0 win away game at Middlesbrough on the 7th February. The supporters will again spend their hard earned money to travel and support the team, but their tolerance of under performing players and the blaming of referees or lady luck by the manager is wearing thin.

This weekend and until the end of the season, the players and management must forget personal differences and get down to battling their way out of their precarious league position, otherwise there will be a repeat of the Brian Kidd syndrome, when the Rovers team who everyone said where to good to be relegated, ended up being relegated.

In light of this weeks reported events, the worrying factor is whether the players are really bothered, at the end of the day the only people being victimised, should the club end up being relegated are the supporters who pay towards the wages, that players will still pick up whatever division they play in next season.
