For sometime now we've been trying to put together what we feel is the Greatest Ever Blackburn Rovers Squad. This has been selected but now is time for a recap and in some cases a re-evaluation.
This recap will entail us going through the positions, looking at those already selected and deciding are "they really worthy of their place in the Greatest Ever Rovers Squad?
This squad comprises of:
2 Left-backs (or Wing-backs)
2 Right-backs (or Wing-backs)
2 Left-midfielders (or Wingers)
4 Central Midfielders
2 Right-midfielders (or Wingers)
When we looked at the right-midfielders first time round, these six men were the men with the most mentions, and hence they made the poll.
From these six the following two were selected.
Bryan Douglas (35%) &
Stuart Ripley (32%)
So what do we do next?
Next we will go over the positional selections and once we have these positional placing selected to a level the majority agree on (not all will, but the majority will speak and be heardů hopefully!) we will start selecting the Greatest XI!
How do we review this?
Quite simple, YOU look at the people who have been brought into the squad, if you are not happy you mention the name in the comments section below for the name you think should come out and put forward the name (PLEASE NOTE - This doesn't have to come from the original six mentioned!) you thought should come in (ideally why in both instances!)
From the names put forward to come in, and those to go out we should have a majority voicing their fair and honest opinion more fairly than a poll for this process. In a poll you just select a name, in some cases maybe that you like, by asking you to comment you mention a name with a reason why!
What happens if no one comments?
Quite simply if no one comments then no one comes in or out of the Squad and we'll select a keeper for the Greatest XI from what we already have.
I DO NOT want this re-selection process to go to a vote, I want this process decided by the majority through your comments. People have no excuse to moan or be unhappy about who is and who isn't in if they will not debate (not argue!) their point. In a split decision we will, well we will cross that bridge if and when it comes to it!
It's a lot simpler than it may seem!
So simply leave the name(s) below for who you think should go out and add the name for the player that you think should come in, all ideally with reasons. This doesn't need to be fully detailed but some reasoning would help.
Things can and will change over time
Do remember the squad can and will be changed over time at your request. This is a long running process as hopefully I will be around this site for YEARS to come, as will you?
Once we have decided (to the majority, not minority I'm afraid) we will have a finalised squad and then select a Greatest XI (this will go to a vote though!) I will reveal how the "appeals" process for change will happen once we fully finish this project.
So what are you waiting forů
You know what to do, have your say below. This re-evaluation process will run for a maximum of a week, this should give people plenty of time to have their say. If you don`t the true Greats (again I'm not saying those already selected aren't, I'm not looking to sway opinion within this article, will do this below LOL!) could miss out, then who will be to blame? Without wanting to be harsh you, the Vital Blackburn members will as you would not have voiced your opinionů
