Nelsen: We Did It For Ince!!!

Nelsen: We Did It For Ince!!!

Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Nelsen has said that Rovers' 3-2 win over Everton last Saturday was for manager Paul Ince.

The skipper has said that after all the unfair criticism that Ince has had to endure, along with all the speculation that it was the least that he deserved and has given Incey his full backing, rubbishing the reports of discontent at Ewood.

Nelsen told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I'm so happy for the boss because he got some criticism that was so out of line

"He didn't deserve it because he's been fantastic.

"The first one is for him - all the lads are buzzing for him.

"We had a lot of doubters and a lot of people saying not-so-nice stuff about us during the whole of pre-season.

"But we know that what has been written is so untrue.
"

The New Zealand International hopes that this win can shut up a few people who were writing Incey and Rovers off before a ball was even kicked, and he looks forward to Rovers ONCE AGAIN proving the doubters wrong.

God added: "I hope this has proved a lot of people wrong, and that we are trying to contend right up there.

"Every year that I've been here, people have said that Blackburn are just a mid-table team and every year we prove them wrong.

"Hopefully we can do that again.
"

Top, Top man and i dont even think that we saw the best of him last year with his various injuries!! I've had my pre-season doubts but if we play the way we did on Saturday for 80% of our games this season then we'll have an excellent season!!! I'm not buying in to all this "Everton have had a terrible preseason" crap!!! NO-ONE in that league has had a more unsettling pre-season than us, including losing, arguably our two best players!!!! Everton have got the same squad that helped them to finish 5th last season and we went to Goodison and out played and out fought them!!! GREAT RESULT!!!

Too right Mani. Ryan Nelsen has had a full pre-season and has stayed injury free and that is why we will see him at his best this season.
