#Premierleaguestories 1993/94 #PreSeason – Blackburn Rovers – #KennyDalglish ’s Super Stars wanted to win league with defensive reinforcements #TimFlowers, #DavidBatty and #PaulWarhurst.

When Jack Walker, the famous businessman from Lancashire bought Blackburn Rovers, a club he had supported since childhood, he made no bones about his intention to bankroll a football side that was best in England. He brought in Kenny Dalglish as the high profile manager from Liverpool and spent huge amounts on likes of Alan Shearer, Kevin Gallacher and Stuart Ripley.

Blackburn was top of the table but a season-ending injury to Alan Shearer dismantled their season and they ended up finishing fourth. But this did not stop the spending spree at Ewood Park. They spent close to £10 million on acquiring Tim Flowers, David Batty and Paul Warhurst.

Surprisingly all three players played in defensive positions and it was clear that Dalglish wanted to solidify his defence despite having the fourth-best defensive record in the earlier season.
