Friedel One Hundred Not Out

Friedel One Hundred Not Out

Brad Friedel's appearance for Blackburn Rovers in the Premiership clash with Watford at Vicaridge Road on Tuesday night was his 100th successive Rovers start.

The legendary former American International is regarded as one of the best, if not the best Rovers goalkeeper of all time and is still right up there amoung the Premiership, European and World elite despite being very much at the veteran stage.

After raising his bat aloft when making it one hundred successive starts for Rovers in the disappointing 2-1 defeat against Watford here's to hopefully another 100 straight Rovers games, or is this asking too much?

Meanwhile another man reaching a milestone recently was academy graduate Jay McEveley. Five injury ravaged years after making his Rovers debut Jay made his 50th League appearance at the weekend when he started in our 3-0 away win over Manchester City. These appearances have been spread between obviously Rovers and loan spells with Burnley, Gillingham and Ipswich Town. Here's too many more to come from Jay also in the blue and white halves.

Bradders one of Europe's finest, flapped at a few things against Watford but again but for him we would have been soundly embarrassed.

He's everything you coud wish for, quality keeper and a nice guy. When he does go it'll be a VERY, VERY sad day. He'll be almost impossible to replace... although as with everything in life he will be... eventually!

Jay should stay at Rovers I know Derby have an interest in him but £250,000 bid must be a joke

£250,000 is a joke! Not worth Rovers wasting the fax paper to receive such an offer.

I hear though we have a Swiss left back on trial I really hope Hughes is not thinking about letting Jay go?!? But then we dont have the day in day out look at the boy, maybe he's not cutting it?
