Greatest Ever Squad: Right Midfield

Greatest Ever Squad: Right 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 Right 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, left midfielders and central 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 (Ronnie Clayton, Howard Kendall, Eddie Latheron & Tugay)
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 RIGHT MIDFIELDER or RIGHT MIDFIELDERS you would like to be considered for selection. Don't forget right wingers also apply.

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

Should you suggest more than six right 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 right midfielder's names below. Why not also post a word or two on why you have selected them…

DON'T FORGET the more times members (different members not that same person repeatedly!) suggest a name the better the chance of that player making the Poll therefore the greater chance of then making the squad!

Two names that HAVE to get mentions are these two guys NOEL BROTHERSTONE and BRYAN DOUGLAS, so I’ll kick things off with these. Have a few more in mind but will sit back and leave it to you now to agree, disagree and add others.

I would say David Thompson, when he was fit and on form he was touted as being an England player - he was a class act - shame about his following injuries.

I wont repeat his name but come on Wellsy!!! hardly fitting for the "Greatest Squad EVER!!!" Ill throw a few names in the ring too. Stuart Ripley and Roy Vernon. If you are going down the "Wellsy" route then I will also throw in Georgios Donis and Brett Emerton too

I never rated Ripley - it was a running joke between me and my mates about how he would mesmerise the full-backs - only to always hit them with the cross!! How can you compare Thommo to Donis??

Ripley was good, and as such will get a mention from me but at the same time he could arguably also almost fall into the Jason Wilcox category, right place at the right time; but was he really as good as we thought?!?! Comparing Thompson to Donis is an insault BomBom I have to agree with Wellsy here. On his day just before his arrival at Ewood and during the height of his power at Ewood he was superb. Injuries ruined him, but for this god only knows what would have come of him.

Here, here HDM. I thought the guy was excellent. He had two good feet, pace and got stuck in when it mattered. His lack of height never seemed to cause him problems. If he has stayed injury free he would have been a Rovers legend. Remember, he kept Dunn out of the team.

Well if Bentley does stay i believe he can have a greater influence then even the Maestro hass had over the years. Whether or not he is a rovers legend, he surely deserves a mention

Yeah, Bentley is becoming a legend - it is reported that he has just signed a new deal - good one Hughesy!! Shows his respect to the club and to his manager - especially with all the rumoured Man U interest. He has been head and shoulders this season above anyone in the squad fo consistency. Even when Rovers were playing poorly his performances stood out. I am sure he will get even better.

The height was always a worry but he more than compensated the lack of this with his other attributes. Had this been conducted a few years down the line then I think Bents would get into the squad no two ways about it, if he keeps going like he is then a place in the XI will also be VERY probable.

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.
