2006/2007 Squad Numbers Revealed

2006/2007 Squad Numbers Revealed

The Rovers player squad numbers have finally been revealed for the new season. It's a time everyone looks forward to seeing who gets a previous players shirt number or what youngsters are beginning their rise into the first team squad.

There isn`t a great deal of change really, but with Lucas Neill retaining his #2 shirt, and Brett Emerton his #7 if anything can be read into this it would appear that Mark Hughes is standing firm with his decision not to allow these players to leave during the current transfer window, even if it means they can arrange deals in January and walk away for nothing next summer.

Irish youngster Keith Treacy, called up this for the Northern Ireland U19's this week receives a squad number for the first time, being handed the #29. New arrival Benni McCarthy is handed the #10, others, Roberts his favourite #30, Francis Jeffers #17 and Jason Brown #23.

One name change this season will see Morten Gamst Pedersen now wearing Gamst as opposed to Pedersen. During the summer he requested permission from the Premier League, which was granted to display Gamst, his mother`s maiden name.

Full list as follows
Brad Friedel #1
Lucas Neill #2
Zurab Khizanishvili #3
Andy Todd #4
Tugay #5
Ryan Nelsen #6
Brett Emerton #7
Robbie Savage #8
Shefki Kuqi #9

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.
