Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn Rovers may be one of the most successful teams in the history of the FA Cup but that doesn't hide the fact that they haven't won it since way back in 1928 and haven't appeared in a Final for over 50 years. Rovers are the only team to ever win the FA Cup three times in a row, a feat they achieved from 1884 to 1886.

Blackburn were knocked out by Newcastle in this season's FA Cup Third Round.
