Greatest Ever Squad: Centre-backs

Greatest Ever Squad: Centre-backs

If you had the money of a Roman Abramovich and even a time machine I'm sure you would love to put together a Blackburn Rovers Greatest Ever Squad… This is your chance as we continue compiling this squad with the centre-backs!

We all have our favourite players and know of the legendary ones even if we haven't seen them so now is our chance to get these brought together as you the Vital Blackburn Rovers fans get a chance to compile what you consider the Greatest Ever Blackburn Rovers Squad.

This squad will comprise of the following, with the goalkeepers and left-backs already selected:

3 Goalkeepers (Tim Flowers, Brad Friedel & Bobby Mimms)

2 Left-backs (or Wing-backs) (Stig Inge Bjornebye & Graeme Le Saux)
2 Right-backs (or Wing-backs)
4 Centre-backs

2 Left-midfielders (or Wingers)
2 Right-midfielders (or Wingers)
4 Central Midfielders

4 Forwards


To put together this squad we need to think of names so below leave your suggestion for the CENTRE-BACK or CENTRE-BACKS you would like to be considered for selection.

Once we have enough names (at least five, ideally six) we will put it to the vote and the top four will make it into the Greatest Ever Rovers Squad.

Should you suggest more than six centre-backs I will either have to consider those most frequently suggested or somehow get you to decide on the final six people voted on? JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE MENTIONS A PLAYER DON'T THINK YOU CAN'T AS YOU CAN the more mentions a player gets the better his chance of making the poll!

This is your chance so post your centre-back or centre-backs names below. Why not also post a word or two on why you have selected them…

Rovers have a RICH, RICH history of central defenders so there sohuld be PLENTY of names suggested here! As always I'll leave it to you guys first then add my thoughts as we go.

I'd have to agree Hendry is the best , followed by Nelsen at the min, I dont think many will come close to these two, although there are many great names as said

I don't usually come in this early but for a change I will. Colin Hendry and Ryan Nelsen would be names I'd certainly mention. Mike England and Henchoz would get a mention too.

The obvious nominations for me have to include Hendry (Should we just give him a bye? ;-) ) Nelsen, Henchoz and Berg. Anyone dare mention Darren Peacock? Hehe.

Oh, does Ian Pearce class as a striker or defender for us? One of our forgotten ones if you ask me - Premiership winner with us, and one of the ones that no-one ever seems to mention. Certainly proved his worth against Barcelona.

Henning Berg is another that I will certainly agree with. Didn't want to mention him until someone else did. As for Ian Pearce he would be classed as a defender in this, he certainly is a forgotten man so maybe he could get in. Darren Peacock could probably get into another selection of Rovers players but it certainly wouldn't be the greatest!
