Blackburn Rovers F.C. spent their first season in the second flight for almost a decade in a season curtailed by the death of owner Jack Walker from lung cancer. The expected comeback to the top flight did not materialize, the team being stuck in the midfield, in spite of several expensive purchases staying at the club. The appointment of Graeme Souness was still a high-profile one, giving renewed hopes of a resurgence.
