It was a great Evening that Monday night and the whole of Blackburn and beyond seemed to want to get into Ewood with thousands of folk locked outside.

For some strange,unexplainable,oddball reason I sadly never took any footage of the event from my seat in the BBE.

Thank you for posting the above video...25 years may have passed but the memories we'll happily take to our Graves.:rover:

What a fabulous night that was, and I can remember it like it was yesterday. Sadly realising what has happened since those heady days, in reality it’s more like a lifetime. Nothing can rob us of the memories though.

me and a mate ventured south on a sleepy saturday with apprehension as we`de never been to millwall before,they were astonishingly quite hospitable,apparently they had no "beef" with blackburn at all,not sure if they felt that way after the match,as we boarded the coach pretty sharpish!!!,the area around the den was`nt really a place to get lost in

Went to that one.

The save which Mimms pulled off and rolled over on it had all the Rovers fans convinced it had gone in. Then we were looking for the ball and finally astonished to see Bobby stand up with it.

We got pummelled that day by Millwall but came away with the 3-1 win.

Shouldn't believe everything the media say.

I've been to Millwall plenty of times - they are a fucking nasty lot.

I lived in London for about 30 years and the only place I never went to watch Rovers at was Millwall.

A really interesting viewpoint regarding Shearer's injury in 1992-3:

https://www.lancs.live/sport/football/football-news/blackburn-rovers-manchester-united-title-19136255

Football has always been about ifs and buts. If Gerrard hadn't slipped etc etc

Having said that, on the rare occasion when I can actually understand what the prick is saying, Carragher talks out of his arse.

It was us that fell over the line in ‘95, not them.

That's exactly how I feel. Watching the mighty Rovers drop into Div 3 for the first time in their history in 1971 was gut-wrenching - but at least it was for purely football reasons: we were skint (so were the vast majority of other clubs), we'd made some rotten managerial choices, couldn't hang on to our better players. It was a bitter pill to swallow but fair dos - we couldn't blame anybody but ourselves. So we had to dig deep and remember that 'We've won the cup three times on the run, been champions of division one" as we used to sing when we  visited those 3rd tier shitholes for the first time.

At least then we were all in it together - club, fans, board, the whole town. That's the worst thing that these people have done - disconnected me from my club, our club. I don't think it can ever have been like this in the 135 years before they took over.

God damn their eyes.

I agree.

That first drop into Div 3 was horrible and the pain didn't end there, did it.

I think we were 3rd from bottom of the old third division, that November, when we went to Tranmere. The 3-1 win set my own teenage heart on fire and I now look back fondly on those times. Furphy brought a religious revival with Tony Field et al.

In those days Rovers fans were a family, united against the rest of the world lol. These "badly advised" (my arse) owners and their club killer partners have done so much damage, despite the current, Facebook Venky love. They have lost a generation of fans. How could they have pissed all that away!

And Bill Fox will be spinning at some of the stewardship over the last decade, strange boardroom appointments, bizarre signings, Scottish gangsters  etc. 

One of the saddest things for me was the fact that Bill didn't even live to see that promotion under Dalglsh, let alone the later triumph.

if this thread has highlighted one thing over and over again, it must be how underrated Atkins was by a lot of us fans.

I think it was Fuccillo I think that went over Keeley's shoulder onto a bone hard frozen pitch. I've been at a couple of rugby league games were I thought a player had been killed but when he came straight down head first I thought he'd been killed !
