Blackburn Rovers fans react to tease of new away kit

Blackburn Rovers today tweeted a photo tease of the club’s new away kit for the upcoming League One 2017-18 season.

Blackburn will be competing in the third tier of English football following their relegation from the Championship last season.  However, under manager Tony Mowbray, there is a sense of optimism around Ewood Park at the moment.  Rovers’ four new signings have added to this feeling, with Reading striker Dominic Samuel also set to sign for the club.

As the news of the club’s new away kit was announced on Twitter, Blackburn fans were quick to react and give their thoughts on the kit.

Many Blackburn fans pointed out the kit’s resemblance to the club’s away kit in 1994-95 when Rovers became Premier League champions and the away kit of 2000-01 when Blackburn returned to the top flight:

Gifs were also a very popular reaction:

Other Rovers fans stuck to words to express their delight over the new kit:

Blackburn are favourites with most bookies to win the League One title this season but have let several first-team players go.  Rovers have added midfielders Peter Whittingham, Richie Smallwood, Bradley Dack and Ben Gladwin to their ranks but will need to add more new faces before the new season begins next month.

One position where Blackburn are particularly short is in attack.  The club currently only have Danny Graham and Anthony Stokes on their books and many expect Stokes to leave the club this summer.

Tony Mowbray seems to have the fans on his side at Blackburn and has made the right additions to his squad so far.  If Rovers manage to keep hold of key players and add a few more faces, they could be in very good shape for a successful League One season.
