With YOUR help Vital Blackburn has been trying to determine what have been the best and worst of the Blackburn Rovers 2007-2008 season.
The nominations are still be taken for other Awards, but the Vital Blackburn Awards for 2007-2008 continue to be dished out with the COLIN HENDRY AWARD FOR DEFENDER OF THE SEASON.
THE WINNER: STEPHEN WARNOCK.
When asked to simply leave the name of your Defender of the Season most felt Stephen Warnock Award Winner, so congratulations to Warnock!
Firstly (as with last year) Brad Friedel is a gimme; he is ALWAYS likely to win a battle if we were selecting a Goalkeeper/Defender of the season, so his name is written is stone, and he gets his own Award!!!
We had our fair share of awkward moments at the back last season, probably because Ryan Nelsen was again troubled by injury and wasn't at his best for large periods when he played in despite this, which always causes us problems as he is the rock in our back four (in front of Friedel), Christopher Samba was well below what we know he can do but Stevie W was consistently good and showed improvement throughout the season, which was capped with him winning his first senior England International cap earlier this summer.
Zurab Khizanishvili and Andre Ooijer deserve honorary mentions as well I personally believe as when called upon (which should have maybe been more often than they were with Nelsen struggling and Samba well below his best) they NEVER let us down, particularly Zurab he can count himself unfortunate to have come in for a match here and there but gone straight back out again when others were fit!!!
