Rovers who had collected only four points in the Premier League this season and scored thirteen goals all in all, went into relegation after losing to Newcastle 3-1. The Rovers captain Chris Samba told BBC news that things can still improve for their team, they will need a big heart and improve themselves. They have played better than this and they can. He wants a reaction from his team. He wants to his team to make a comeback with a different attitude, he wants them to be tougher than this.
Even though the Rovers do not seem to be playing so well this season they have been Premier League Champions and have been successful in beating teams like Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs. They also have the achievement of being one of the four clubs that have won the Premier League title, which includes Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal. Arsenal also faces relegation fears as it has not won a trophy in the past six years.
Blackburn Rovers was established in 1875 and in 1888 they became the founding members of the Football League.
Newcastle played well in its last match against the Rovers. With De Samba making a hat-trick the Rovers fall in for their fourth defeat of the Premier League season causing them to drop into relegation. Being the English Football Club that has the eighth highest number of honors in football, Newcastle is at the fourth position in the Premier League. With 12 points the team is just a notch below Chelsea and can easily be the title grabbers this year. Their performance has been good so far and their best players this season include De samba and Leon Best. De Samba was the man who caused Newcastle to win from the Rovers this Saturday. He is also in the top players list this season with three goals to his credit. This is definitely the attraction of football fans who will be eager to buy Newcastle tickets to watch him play and make more Hat-tricks in the future.
The Blackburn rovers come across Manchester City in the next match. Manchester City has been in the top five list this season. At the moment it retains the position at number two with sixteen points which is equal to the Red Devils' score, for Blackburn rovers it may require all their strength to beat the Citizens. Manchester City might not have been Premier League champions but in the past few years they have come across as one of the best teams and now they have been at the top. The game will take place in Ewood Park on Saturday the 1st of October.
The Blackburn captain and defender Chris Samba motivates his team with his talk. He told The Sun newspaper that you push your luck and destiny yourself. And that is what he wants his team to do also.
He does not want them to just sit and see other teams pass them because because he knows that his team can play much better than they did against Newcastle. They still have the chance to regain their full position in the football world. Blackburn fans who have heard what Samba thinks will certainly be encouraged to buy Blackburn tickets and come to cheer the team.
