Greatest Ever Rovers XI - Goalkeeper

Greatest Ever Rovers XI - Goalkeeper

The Greatest Ever Blackburn Rovers Squad had been finalised, now we have the Starting XI's Goalkeeper! This man is Brad Friedel.

Eventually it was decided that the final selection of the three goalkeepers to get into this squad would be, Terry Gennoe, Tim Flowers & Brad Friedel.

From these three with 83% of the vote, most feel the goalkeeper should be Brad Friedel.

Congratulations to Friedel for becoming the first name inducted into the Greatest Ever Rovers XI.

Flowers gained 9% to take his place on the bench, with Gennoe collecting the final 5% to be the man who would be next in line for a call up.

This squad currently comprises of the following:

Goalkeepers - Terry Gennoe, Tim Flowers & Brad Friedel
Left-backs (or Wing-backs) - William Eckersley & Graeme Le Saux
Centre-backs - Mike England, Derek Fazackerley, Colin Hendry & Ryan Nelsen
Right-backs (or Wing-backs) - Bob Crompton & Keith Newton
Left midfielders (or Wingers) - Damien Duff & Scott Sellers
Central Midfielders - Ronnie Clayton, Jimmy Forrest, Eddie Latheron & Tugay
Right midfielders (or Wingers) - Bryan Douglas & Noel Brotherston
Forwards - Tommy Briggs, Simon Garner, Alan Shearer & Chris Sutton


Next up for selection will be the left-back so keep an eye out for the poll shortly.

Don't forget this selection process, CAN and WILL alter over time so if you DON'T AGREE WITH THIS have your say about making a change by clicking here.

The current poll, suggested by Clint is asking your opinion on, "Overrated players in the Premier League - YES OR NO?? But who is most overrated??"

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findingsā€¦

Watch out Terry Gennoe and Tim Flowers there is a landslide coming!!! How about that then a MASSIVE 83% think Bradders is our Greatest Ever Goalkeeper, I tend to agree, but not by such a clear margin though!

All three goalkeepers were very good, some better than others. Flowers was still one of the best goalkeepers produced by this country (England) for me, was just around at the wrong time as often happens for goalkeepers. I don't think Bradders (as GREAT as he is!) is 74% better than Flowers though.

Flowers was an amazing shot stopper, maybe even better than Brad but he didnt have the all around skills, such as catching and kicking from hand that makes Brad the worthy winner of the 1st spot in the greatest ever team!

Must have had such a great history when Brad bloody Friedel, who couldnt get a game at Liverpool a few years back when David James was there, is your 'greatest ever goalkeeper'. I'd joke about Stig Inge Bjornebye being your greatest ever left-back, but he'll probably actually win that!

Brad didnt get a game at Liverfool because that is wot they are!! They got rid of Brad to sign Westerfeld, yes I hear folk going WHO??? Seriously, that must have to go down as one of the most stupid decisions in the history of the Premier League lol

I think Flowers got more credit than he deserved because he played behind the dog's dangly bits of defence for so long. Brad has spent most of his Ewood career behind some average/poor defenders... not now though!!!
