Simon Barker celebrates a Rovers goal with Simon Garner

Simon Barker as he is today working for the PFA

First published in Sport by , Features Writer

IN a way, playing in a Wembley final is like having a school picture taken.

If your tie is a daft colour or if you have not had a decent haircut for weeks too bad.

That’s the way you were – that’s the image that goes on the mantelpiece or is filed away in the football archives for a fresh generation to remember.

There is a striking black and white photograph on the stairway at Ewood Park, which requires further poignancy each year for Simon Barker, the Professional Footballers’ Association assistant chief executive.

Blackburn’s man of the match is stood on the Wembley turf, fists clenched together in triumph, celebrating Blackburn’s victory over Charlton Athletic in the 1987 Full Members Cup Final.

“Blackburn were in the Second Division and had no money, but that was probably the best weekend of my football career,” said Barker.

“It wasn’t the League Cup or the FA Cup, but we didn’t care, it was still a magical moment for the people who were there.

“It seemed like the whole town had gone to Wembley that March afternoon.

“Dusty (Ian) Miller charged down the line and crossed for Colin Hendry to score with five minutes left.

“That moment will always play a special moment in my life.”

Barker’s a friendly man with a warm sense of humour, but most of all his love for Blackburn shines through quarter of a century after leaving Ewood behind.

“We danced on the pitch with the trophy in front of the Rovers fans, wearing our silly hats, and it was incredibly special because that was Blackburn’s first silverware for many years,” he recalled.

“I thought there’d be other occasions, but there wasn’t and it was my only appearance at that great old stadium.

“We had a re-union of the Wembley team at Ewood a couple of years ago and seeing old colleagues, Scott Sellars, Alan Ainscow, Derek Fazackerley and Vince O’Keefe, who played brilliantly in the final, brought those Rovers memories flooding back. I loved playing for Blackburn.”

Just talking and sipping tea on a weekday morning inside Simon Barker’s office, does more to rekindle the old deep enthusiasm for football than half a dozen afternoons watching the sometimes incoherent energy of modern football.

Barker had made his Rovers debut four years earlier under the watchful eye of Bobby Saxton, a few days short of his nineteenth birthday.

A slender 1-0 win at Swansea where, typically, Simon Garner scored the only goal of the game at Vetch Field, marked his baptism.

He smiles when I ask him how much he earned then.

“I drove a blue Ford Fiesta car and I got £65 a week. You’d have to hammer on the manager’s door for a £10 pay rise - and he would usually tell you to go away.

“But I owe a lot to Bobby, he was an old school manager who taught me how to be a man in a very different era.

“He was a tough centre half with his nose splattered across his face, but most of all he was as straight as a die and knew the game inside out.

“I was a naïve youngster, and there was a lot of hard men in the game.

“We played against Oxford United, who had some fearsome characters, Billy Whitehurst, Gary Briggs and Malcolm Shotton.

“I tackled Bobby McDonald, but he was a bit more wily and timed his tackle a touch later and I had to be carried off.

“The next day, Bobby Saxton said, ‘Listen son, I need to show you how to look after yourself, how to tackle.’ “He spent hours working with me. You’d think it was a simple thing how to tackle properly, but there’s an art to it.

“There was a great camaraderie at Blackburn and I loved that sense of belonging.”

The game has changed beyond recognition of course since Barker’s duties as an Ewood apprentice included shining the boots of quicksilver Irish winger Noel Brotherston.

“Noel could have played in any era, he was a great talent and a kind soul who was taken from us far too early.

“We’d train together as a team and go out together as a team.

“We’d turn up at a pub in Darwen or Blackburn, push a pile of pennies over for charity, have a pint and a chat with the fans, and the following day the photograph would be in the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.”

Barker quickly established himself in Blackburn’s midfield engine room.

He was not only comfortable in possession, and an excellent passer, he had a happy knack of scoring vital goals.

Barker laughs when he recalls Blackburn’s beer drinking, chain-smoking goal machine Garner, whose obsessive hunger for goals defined his Ewood career.

“Simon had quick feet, a short back lift and he nearly always hit the target,” he said. “His finishing was very instinctive and he will always be remembered as a Blackburn Rovers legend.”

Remarkably, when Barker left Ewood for QPR in July 1988 for £400,000, it was the largest fee that Rovers had received for a player at that time and a club record signing for the Loftus Road club.

While the record has long since been overtaken, Barker’s standing at Ewood remains intact.

“I often go back to Ewood through my role at the PFA and last season it felt like Blackburn was ripping itself apart, which was desperately sad to see.

“I’ve talked to some long-standing fans who don’t go to games anymore and I do understand that to a certain extent because that is the only way supporters can show their displeasure at what has happened.

“From the outside looking in, it would seem they have been badly advised from the start by people who they have trusted.

“The men in place before, John Williams (chairman) and Tom Finn (secretary) knew the business and I think they should have left them to run the club for them.

“But the owners made the change and they had to live or die by the decisions they make.

“Regardless of what has gone on before it needs everybody to come together again and that is beginning to happen under Gary Bowyer.

“Gary is a good man and a true football man. He did great work at the Academy and has a real passion for the game, and that is beginning to show in the first team’s results.

‘I hope they stick with him because he seems to be healing the wounds of the past and Blackburn Rovers feels like a football club again.”

Great player Simon Barker and a top top lad, i remember him having a laugh with us at many an away game in the 80,s. Its good to hear him mention Noel as well and yes he was taken far too early, he is also right in saying we will, and are turning the corner slowly but surely.

Fantastic memories, they where my favourite times going down to Ewood. A few pints in the Moorgate and down to the Fox and Hounds, I'd often walk from Bamber Bridge, setting off early and getting into Blackburn about 10ish, often Tony at the Fox & hounds would let me in early. Then on to the ground, the days of terracing, then a lift back to the Brig with some lads from Lancaster, just in time for the pubs opening, they didn't have all day opening in those days. Noel Brotherston was a great guy, I had a couple of pints with him in the private bar, but he may have been on shandy, I don't think he was a big drinker, tho I could be wrong. The prem winning days where wonderful, but maybe surprisingly I look on the Garner, Barker, Brotherston, Keeley and Faz days with more affection.

Cracking article, brought back a lot of long, lost memories of a time when having a foreign player in your squad meant they were either Scots, Welsh or Irish! lol.

Now players from the home countries can be rare as hens teeth in most PL clubs.

A time of good, honest players who really knew what it meant to the fans of all clubs) on a Saturday afternoon, players that didn't earn more in a week that the supporters could earn in a year.

Players supporters could identify with.

Now players are little more than transients, each club a stepping stone for a couple of seasons at most, better things and agents fees beckon, and who can blame them?

I miss those days for certain, but I wouldn't want to go back because they belong in the memory.

Is Eckersley playing? says...

My abiding memory of the Wembley game was going down the M6 and M1 on a Blackburn double decker. We stopped at three or for services en route and rushed to the bogs. There was a queue at each - and everybody had blue and white scarves on. It was case of "Aw, reight" nodding to half of Blackburn as you queued. Seems like somebody has marked Simons card about the Venkys though. I'm one who will never set foot in Ewood till they sell up, but yes, I do have my memories.

Remember having quite a drinking session with Chris Price in St Johns Tavern one Saturday, great bloke and nobody bothered him at all. Noel ended up as a Painter & Decorator if i recall, he once presented us with trophies at a Blackburn Combination doo i think it was, great days. Does anyone remember the Carlisle train crash? it was the week or so before we played Everton in the Cup.

Fantastic day out at Wembley and I remember sitting on the coach to come home with my Dad and somebody coming on selling scarfs and I still have the scarf 27 years on.
Also remember standing at the back of the Blackburn End about the same time. Wasn't quite a teenager but used to think it wa great to stand at football games. I would queue up at 1:20 waiting for the gound to open at 1:30 and then I would run straight to the back of the ground right behind the goal, same spot every week. Remember when we scored once and everybody pushed forward and my trainer came off and then when the crowd had settled looking down on the steps trying to find it. The good old days.

Happy days indeed. I enjoyed the eighties just as much as the nineties, in a way more so. It was before the'prawn sandwich' brigade started going to football, the grounds were poor, we were stood up but they were great days. To get to a cup final, albeit the FMC was a fantastic achievement. I seem to remember that Charlton were ground sharing at the time, and a lot of their fans were boycotting, hence the poor show of Charlton fans at Wembley. It was a fabulous goal from King Col, but Vince was superb in goal. A great day all round, and a good p*ss up when we got back at a lock in at The Queens, on Audley.

A message for the Dingles that will try to ruin yet another Rovers thread (one in particular). Your only response to our THIRTY YEARS of dominance over you, is Jack Walkers money. Well you little Dingle gobsh*tes, this was 1987, and we didn't have a pot to p*ss in. It was FOURTEEN YEARS before his arrival on the scene, and you STILL couldn't beat us .Funny that, isn't it?

Being appreciated by fellow supporters with words of bad taste
I had to pretend that I was deaf and dumb
I never thought being Pakistani would incite such hate
From tandoori tikka loving palefaces who were acting like scum
I thought to myself, why give my money here, to be abused
So I stopped going, let others jump on the Rovers glory bandwagon
But Karma has it’s own way, and destiny would not be subdued
Who owns the Rovers now, yes, a very football SAVVY Indian

No one is aiming to ruin your thread and all the backslapping nonsense that's going on. It was a cup win, and nothing less than the Full Members Cup at that, forget the FA Cup, this was the big one!

Perhaps we didn't beat you in 1987 because we didn't play you between April 1983 and December 2000, ever thought of it that way? and by the time we did play you, Mr Walker had been expertly fleeced of his life savings.

So you're correct in saying the money had nothing to do with your Mickey Mouse cup win but it had everything to do with your games against us from 2000 onwards, which effectively covers your alleged "30 years of dominance", and of course as usual you disregard the 17 years of Burnley dominance between 62 and 79 when neither club had any money because it ruins your argument. Funny that isn't it.

Enjoy your memories of the dark ages, those days will be back soon.

my favourite barker moment was him slotting in the 4th at the old den when millwall had just clinched the league to go up to D1 (as it was at the time). we won there (i think their players were still drunk on celebrating the title). we went into the play-offs and george courtney did the rest for palace.

millwall fans invaded pitch and ran over to rovers fans in the corner under the floodlight (like it used to be at notts county)...we thought we were in for a right hammering - but they stopped at the fences and applauded - it was like some biblical miracle.

HH, I was there too, in the corner of the stand, drunk as skunks, on the lash from 7a.m. How we ended up in the stands I'll never know! Great away day.
I agree that the Millwall players were 'relaxed' about the game, and also thought we were in for a pasting at the final whistle but never happened of course. I've met a few Millwall fans over the years who all remembered the occasion with a smile.
Millwall fans were sound as that day and just wanted us to beat Palace!! Enough said now!

I thought to myself, why give my money here, to be abused
So I stopped going, let others jump on the Rovers glory bandwagon

Hi GK
This is a sad story, I keep going on about you lot integrating more and then this kind of thing happens, try a trip down there again mate there are lots of Asian supporters down at Ewood, and I can only apologise for my fellow supporters which on the whole are now very well behaved.

A message for the Dingles that will try to ruin yet another Rovers thread (one in particular). Your only response to our THIRTY YEARS of dominance over you, is Jack Walkers money. Well you little Dingle gobsh*tes, this was 1987, and we didn't have a pot to p*ss in. It was FOURTEEN YEARS before his arrival on the scene, and you STILL couldn't beat us .Funny that, isn't it?
No one is aiming to ruin your thread and all the backslapping nonsense that's going on. It was a cup win, and nothing less than the Full Members Cup at that, forget the FA Cup, this was the big one!

Perhaps we didn't beat you in 1987 because we didn't play you between April 1983 and December 2000, ever thought of it that way? and by the time we did play you, Mr Walker had been expertly fleeced of his life savings.

So you're correct in saying the money had nothing to do with your Mickey Mouse cup win but it had everything to do with your games against us from 2000 onwards, which effectively covers your alleged "30 years of dominance", and of course as usual you disregard the 17 years of Burnley dominance between 62 and 79 when neither club had any money because it ruins your argument. Funny that isn't it.

Enjoy your memories of the dark ages, those days will be back soon.
Right on cue; The papa GOBSH*TE. So what is your excuse for not beating us from 1979, until Jack took over in 1991? When we both had no cash, and we were on a so called level playing field? The fact that you didn't play us from 1983 onwards is not our fault. It's not our fault that you were bumming around in the lower leagues. - bumming being the operative word in your case -. It's not our fault, or Jacks cash that you were in the FOURTH DIVISION, is it?

There is nothing alleged about our thirty years of dominance. It is a fact. Jack Walker was involved with Rovers for ten of those years. We dominated you for over a DECADE before he arrived on the scene, when we had fcuk all!

We beat you in 1979 you wally!

Do your homework before spouting nonsense next time or you'll make yourself look dumb. All I can tell you is that in my lifetime Burnley are the dominant team... and you cannot argue with that.

52 years:
Burnley league wins: 10
Blackburn league wins: 8
League draws: 5

Soon to be 11 league wins for Burnley. So who is the dominant team again?

And all this includes a period of time when your club benefited from a £100million cash advantage, while little old Burnley were (to use a phrase you seem to be familiar with) "bumming around" in the lower leagues.

All that money and we STILL have a better record against you!

Take away that massive investment and you wouldn't have anything would you, we would have been on equal terms more often and had possibly 14 wins to your 4. Who knows.

In any case, I'd be ashamed to brag about "30 years of dominance" if I were you, I really would.

You have just shown yourself up. Wind your neck in you fool.

The memory of the Riverside in the early 80's are bought flooding back whenever I smell pipe smoke or see flat cap, the whole stand was a sea of flat caps, remember the 'Bog Trotter' (the footballing genius AKA Noel Brotherston) skinning Stan Bowles in front of the Riverside and Bowles was so gobsmacked he didn't know what to do so he just clapped his hands and gave a wry smile to the young Rovers supporters at the front of the stand.

We beat you in 1979 you wally!

Do your homework before spouting nonsense next time or you'll make yourself look dumb. All I can tell you is that in my lifetime Burnley are the dominant team... and you cannot argue with that.

52 years:
Burnley league wins: 10
Blackburn league wins: 8

Soon to be 11 league wins for Burnley. So who is the dominant team again?

And all this includes a period of time when your club benefited from a £100million cash advantage, while little old Burnley were (to use a phrase you seem to be familiar with) "bumming around" in the lower leagues.

Just had a look on the Dingle section and there is not ONE comment on the first three posts, to me that says it all about you son. You must wait in anticipation to come on here day and night, I asked you yesterday why you don't discuss anything other than us. Who will you buy if you go up? Where do you need to strengthen? What have you learnt from last time? Will you dare to dream again? Come on don't be shy I have set it up for you so let's have it, and see if you can post something without mentioning playing us And try it without using Wikepedia.

You have just shown yourself up. Wind your neck in you fool.
So you want to ignore our respective clubs history, where we have more victories than you, and more silverware than you, and just concentrate on what's happened in your miserable lifetime, excluding the Jack Walker years? Very selective, aren't you? You are a BELL END!
INCLUDING the Jack Walker years you absolute tosspiece!

You can spell it out to a no-dad but it still won't sink in.

I tire of trying to educate you muppets sometimes, I really do.

You pick out 34 years because it suits your argument but you object to me picking out what has happened in my lifetime, which as I pointed out is a dominant Burnley FC with more wins over Blackburn Rovers.

Make you mind up Mungo, you can't have it both ways! Bellend.

Great player Simon Barker and a top top lad, i remember him having a laugh with us at many an away game in the 80,s. Its good to hear him mention Noel as well and yes he was taken far too early, he is also right in saying we will, and are turning the corner slowly but surely.
Great memories of 1987. Cracking moniker too mate, made me laugh out loud. He was a cult hero for them but we got plenty of mileage from that ironing board escapade!!!

A message for the Dingles that will try to ruin yet another Rovers thread (one in particular). Your only response to our THIRTY YEARS of dominance over you, is Jack Walkers money.

No one is aiming to ruin your thread and all the backslapping nonsense that's going on. It was a cup win, and nothing less than the Full Members Cup at that, forget the FA Cup, this was the big one!

Perhaps we didn't beat you in 1987 because we didn't play you between April 1983 and December 2000, ever thought of it that way? and by the time we did play you, Mr Walker had been expertly fleeced of his life savings.

So you're correct in saying the money had nothing to do with your Mickey Mouse cup win but it had everything to do with your games against us from 2000 onwards, which effectively covers your alleged "30 years of dominance", and of course as usual you disregard the 17 years of Burnley dominance between 62 and 79 when neither club had any money because it ruins your argument. Funny that isn't it.

Enjoy your memories of the dark ages, those days will be back soon.
Right on cue; The papa GOBSH*TE. So what is your excuse for not beating us from 1979, until Jack took over in 1991? When we both had no cash, and we were on a so called level playing field? The fact that you didn't play us from 1983 onwards is not our fault. It's not our fault that you were bumming around in the lower leagues. - bumming being the operative word in your case -. It's not our fault, or Jacks cash that you were in the FOURTH DIVISION, is it?

There is nothing alleged about our thirty years of dominance. It is a fact. Jack Walker was involved with Rovers for ten of those years. We dominated you for over a DECADE before he arrived on the scene, when we had fcuk all!

Football existed before 1995 you know. Check the history books Mungo, particularly Burnley's 10 wins against Blackburn Rovers in 14 consecutive league games. A record never to be equalled.

consecutive wins...Rovers 6

Highest scoring win Rovers 8 Burnley 3
Highest away win Burnley 1..Rovers 7
Highest home win Rovers 7...Burnley 1
Goals scored.. Rovers 177
Goals scored...Burnley 152
Highest attendances
Rovers v Burnley 16 March 1960 53,889
Burnley v Rovers 5 March 1960 51,501

All before the late J.W.
To be fair though, Burnley did get more corners in a game against us at Turd Moor, in the late 50's.
Don't forget they also had more throw ins.

So you want to ignore our respective clubs history, where we have more victories than you, and more silverware than you, and just concentrate on what's happened in your miserable lifetime, excluding the Jack Walker years? Very selective, aren't you? You are a BELL END!
INCLUDING the Jack Walker years you absolute tosspiece!

You can spell it out to a no-dad but it still won't sink in.

I tire of trying to educate you muppets sometimes, I really do.

You pick out 34 years because it suits your argument but you object to me picking out what has happened in my lifetime, which as I pointed out is a dominant Burnley FC with more wins over Blackburn Rovers.

Make you mind up Mungo, you can't have it both ways! Bellend.
Yeah you tell em big boy! 35 years and all that, it means nothing.

Surely the stature of a club should be based on who's won more trophies, derbies, record attendances, most years in top flight, spent longer in a higher division etc etc..... What a load of muppets eh!

Oh hang on........

millwall fans invaded pitch and ran over to rovers fans in the corner under the floodlight (like it used to be at notts county)...we thought we were in for a right hammering - but they stopped at the fences and applauded - it was like some biblical miracle.

pity that even this thread had to be polluted by the dingle tart. OCD
George Courtney's next Rovers game was away at Bradford.I'll never forget his face as he walked out from the corner dressing rooms next to the Rovers supporters.He genuinely didn't know what he'd done wrong.
As I recall,he gave us everything,including a pen.
Could be wrong,but i think Jonny Millar took it.

He would be ashamed to brag about "30 years of dominance" yet quite happy to brag about being above blackburn rovers for 1 season, deluded dingle. He's 52 now, last time Burnley had anything to brag about he was 17, no wonder he comes on here every day venting his lifetime frustration of being a devoted dingle, poor sod.

The pi55ing contest appears to be in full flow early this year, the sad attention seeker and his multiple accounts must be so proud.

There are three important matches before Burnley actually become relevant for the second time this season, Reading away is going to be tough but Rovers have had time to prepare, the others are winnable. 7 points would be a good return to build momentum, less than 5 would be disappointing.
