Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray

Blackburn Rovers, champions of England in 1995, are now a third-rate club. There was no last-gasp escape from relegation to League One, just as there is no miracle cure to the ills that have afflicted the Lancashire side since they were taken over by an Indian chicken processing corporation, Venky’s, in 2010. They were 14th in the top flight back then, now they are headed for the third tier of English football, a level unknown to them since 1980.
