Greatest Ever Squad Central Midfield

Greatest Ever Squad Central Midfield

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 Central Midfielders!

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, left-backs, central defenders, right-backs and left midfielders already selected:

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

2 Left-backs (or Wing-backs) (Stig Inge Bjornebye & Graeme Le Saux)
4 Centre-backs (Henning Berg, Mike England, Colin Hendry & Ryan Nelsen)
2 Right-backs (or Wing-backs) (Bob Crompton & Lucas Neill)

2 Left midfielders (or Wingers) (Damien Duff & Morten Gamst Pedersen)
4 Central Midfielders
2 Right midfielders (or Wingers)

4 Forwards


To put together this squad we need to think of names so below leave your suggestion for the CENTRAL MIDFIELDER or CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS you would like to be considered for selection. It doesn`t matter if the player is an attacking, defensive, holding, whatever so long as he plays, or played centrally.

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 central midfielders 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 at least making the poll!

This is your chance so post your central midfielders names below. Why not also post a word or two on why you have selected them...

There are names a plenty to be listed here, as always I want to mainly leave it to you guys and see what you come up with but to kick things off lets not overlook Ronnie Clayton, Duncan McKenzie and Eddie Quigley.

If the MAESTRO does not feature in this top central midfield vote, I will walk around SYdney Australia in a Burnley Jersey. TUGAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. ALso might as well throw in Savage, Reid, Dunny as they have all played fantastic football in the central role

Tugay will almost certainly be one of the six in the vote, hell one of the four in the squad maybe even one of the two eventually selected in the Greatest XI! Sav would also get a mention along with Dunny. As much as I rate Reidy not sure he'll have done enough just yet but again has to get a mention or two. I'd probably have mentioned all four so good calls sasman, sure others will agree with most also. There are still plenty of names out there.

Ill state the obvious, Tim Sherwood. What about Steve Archibald? Ossie Ardiles? David Batty? Goping back a bit further you have to include Ronnie Clayton and Jimmy Forrest along with Howard Kendall and Eddie Latheron.

Oh, and Gordan Cowans, which reminds me, we didnt consider Kevin Moran for the Centre Half position either!!

Surely we can't take Ossie into account can we? Without doubt a legend of the game but he only played a handful of games didn't he. Howard Kendall, one of the best footballers not to gain England recognition (if he did it was only a cap or two, but don't think he did?) and what a great manager! Batty, Sherwood, Latheron for sure. Archibald, another real quality player but was more of a forward though wasn't he, and again only a few games really whilst on loan.

Shocking wasn't it BomBom, Moran only got a few mentions (one was mine!) so missed out on the votes. God old Cowans, was such an underrated footballer for me.

depends on whether your going for a "best player to play in a rovers shirt" or "most sucessful players ever to play for rovers" I mean Archibald and Ardiles were very classy players who, granted did not achieve much with us but did wonders at other clubs, yet they still played for us. Other wise, its players who had their finrst moments in a rovers shirt

It is understandable that more recent players feature rather than indivioduals from the past. Gordon Cowans was superb. I cannot believe that Keith Newton is not in at right back though. It is good to think back too. We had a wonderful midfield player called Colin Randell. He was majestic, but only played for us at a lower level. He was a diamond though.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
