Blackburn Rovers Football Club was established in 1875, and in 1888 became a founding member of The Football League. In 1890 Rovers moved to its permanent home at Ewood Park. Until the formation of the Premier League in 1992, the majority of the club’s success was pre-1930 when they won the league and FA Cup on several occasions, and their relegation in 1966 was followed by 26 successive seasons of football outside the top flight. The club’s Latin motto “Arte et labore”, which was used by the town council even before the club were formed, literally translated means “by art and by labour”. However the club’s translation is “skill and labour”.

Venky’s (India) Limited formerly known as Western Hatcheries Limited was established in 1976, mainly to produce day-old layer and broiler chicks for the dense poultry markets of North India. Its a major Indian business group based at Pune in Poultry business.

Sir, you have done Indians proud in getting one of the greatest club in the world.Since we are in 3rd week of the primiership i want the club do do its best.Formica is a good player along with roberts but we need a good and a tough mid field player.someone like steven gerrad or like patrick viera or ribery would fit perfectly in your team in order for the forwards to deliver the goods.
