Blackburn Rovers will start the 2008-2009 Premier League season on the road YET AGAIN, after the fixture computers churned out a trip to Everton.

Rovers travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton (who finished last season in fifth place), which will mean a season beginning with an away match for the fourth season running. Premier League newcomers Hull City will be the first visitors to Ewood Park on Saturday 23rd of August.

  • Away again! Maybe next season we can start at home for a change?!?! Everton and then Hull could have been worse couldn’t it.

  • I love the easy first 3 months that the FA computer has given us. I often wonder if the FA and the MOTD people use the same computer!!!

  • Its a reasonable start for us, glad it was not hull to start. the fixtures have been kind all the big teams are spaced out and our run-in’s not too bad either.

  • Would be an ideal start for new Rovers manager Bilic, to mastermind an away win against Everton, his former club.

    BILIC for BLACKBURN

  • Usually I’m quite optimistic with our start to the season… until we get a good manager in post I’m worried. Everton are a good team and Goodison is a tough place to go to.

  • Hopefully this time our guys wont run out of steam, the lack of intertoto might actually help us this time around.

  • help us at the end of the season Mikey but we always start slow but last season the inter2bob cup helped us get a good start

  • portsmouth, villa and city have not really played a european season so they might just struggle in the later stages of the league, hopefully we will benerfit by this
