Friedel praises Blackburn's progress

Friedel praises Blackburn's progress

Ex-Rovers goalkeeper and upcoming opponent Brad Friedel has championed the cause of the Ewood Park club and highlighted the tremendous effort and skill it takes to keep Rovers at a high level.

Friedel's Aston Villa take on Blackburn this weekend in the last game of the season. It will be a game to enjoy as both sides have little to play for.

Rovers however are looking to finish in the top half.

Friedel told Aston Villa's official website - 'What people need to look at is what a good club Blackburn are.

'You look around and see other clubs splashing money around and getting themselves into financial trouble.

'But Blackburn have not only kept themselves in the top flight, they have regularly been in the top half, and even in Europe. And they have done it on a very good budget.

'The board have done a magnificent job. You never hear of any financial troubles.

'They have budgets which aren't massive in the transfer market, but they treat their players very well and it's a good place to play.'

Well said Brad and good luck this weekend.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
