Rovers Submit Playing Squad....

Rovers Submit Playing Squad....

With the August 1st deadline on, each Premier League club had to nominate a maximum of 25 players to participate in all competitions, with 8 of those required to be home-grown and over the age of 21. What most clubs did was, because they could not fulfil the quota of 8 home grown players, they cut the senior squad into a smaller squad, taking into the account the availability of several under 21 players.

Blackburn Rovers named 21 senior players to fulfil the quota, and are as follows



Paul Robinson (HG)

Martin Olsson (HG)

Chris Samba

Gael Givet

Ryan Nelsen

Brett Emerton

David Dunn (HG)

Nikola Kalinić

El-Hadji Diouf

Vince Grella

Morten Gamst Pedersen

Mark Bunn (HG)

Steven Nzonzi

Keith Andrews (HG)

Michel Salgado

Jason Brown (HG)

Frank Fielding (HG)

Pascal Chimbonda

Mame Biram Diouf

Jason Roberts (HG)

As well as this, we have the likes of

Phil Jones

Junior Hoillet

Grant Hanley

Josh Morris

Amine Linganzi

Plus and endless number of juniors.

All in all, I still think we are an attacking midfielder short, and Brett Emerton should be somewhere in the starting squad!

There we go, 8 home grown players! 3 keepers is a bit sneaky, but, why not!

Oh well not the line up majority of us wanted to see, missing a couple of mystery strikers we heard soooo much about the last few month.

Four keepers Sas! we have four in there!!! I like the rule where you can have an unlimited number of under 21's... encouraging the youth programme and what not.

We have a 21 men squad, a great opportunity for our youths to break into the first team. Phil Jones is a starter for me already, Holliet & Grant Hanley will surely play some part. Hope to see more youths coming through in the new season.
