Season summary[edit]

After four years in the First Division, Kevin Keegan's side were promoted to the Premiership as champions. The return of Peter Beardsley created a prolific striker partnership with the young Andy Cole, the pair scoring 55 goals between them in the Premiership. The club achieved a third place finish in the league and UEFA Cup qualification - the club's first foray into Europe since the 1970s. Londoner Robert Lee, left footed midfielder Scott Sellers along with local youngsters Lee Clark and Steve Howey emerged as Premier League stars under Keegan's guidance. The team was nicknamed "The Entertainers" by the media, an indication of the style of play that Keegan instilled on the team. Cole also collected the PFA Young Player of the Year award, having scored a club record of 41 goals in all competitions.

Post-season signings included World Cup stars Marc Hottiger and Philippe Albert, and Derby striker Paul Kitson.

A 7-1 win over Swindon Town matched Blackburn's record for the highest Premier League victory, which was set the previous season.
