‘Good signing that’ – Initial Blackburn Rovers fan reaction to 2020 signing is proving correct



Back in 2020, when Tyrhys Dolan was signed by Blackburn, not much was known about the young talent.

Having never played a competitive minute after coming up through the ranks at Preston, the Lilywhites decided to let him go and he swapped over to a team not too far away from Deepdale in Rovers.

However, despite his lack of action and his tender age, the buzz was there for a signing that looked like he had the potential to become an important player for the side – and so far, they’ve been proven right.

Quiz: 28 questions about some of Blackburn Rovers’ most expensive signings – Can you score 100% on this?

Who did Blackburn sign Chris Sutton from?

When it was announced that he had officially become a Blackburn player, the fans quickly took to Twitter to express their happiness at pinching a local team’s talent – and even some PNE fans got involved to express their disdain at letting such a promising young player leave the club.

When Dolan originally joined, there was a lot of hype surrounding him and his potential.

It was unclear when he would get much action for Blackburn and whether he would have to be given time to break into the team and prove himself at Ewood Park – but he’s made an instant impression.

After just over 14 lots of 90 minutes brought three goals and one assist last year, the 19-year-old has now been given more action in the starting eleven and has duly responded by bettering his tallies from the last campaign already.

In three extra starts (but less minutes) he already has the same amount of goals and more assists than in the 2020/21 season – and he’s still got plenty of time to keep proving himself.

To do so well in the second tier at such a young age is impressive work – and he’s certainly already proving that the initial response to his signing was justified. In fact, he may be doing even better than anybody ever imagined – much to the chagrin of Preston North End fans everywhere.
