Friedel's Save of the Season

Friedel's Save of the Season

With YOUR help Vital Blackburn has been trying to determine what have been the best and worst of the Blackburn Rovers 2006-2007 season.

The nominations are still be taken for other Awards, but the Vital Blackburn Awards for 2006-2007 continue to be dished out with

Friedel's Save of the Season

When asked to simply leave the name of the opponent (and obviously who the save was from) that you feel saw Friedel make his save of the season most felt…

The double saves vs. Arsenal in the 0-0 FA Cup tie should be the Award Winner! So congratulations to Brad for making this double save the best (of MANY!) saves during 2006-2007.

It is fair to say that we went to the Emirates Stadium to defend, and defend we did. Although in all honesty we did this in the main with a fair amount of ease, and it wasn't until the final fifteen minutes or so that Arsenal exerted any real pressure on the Rovers goal, but when they did Friedel was equal to the task.

The save of the match, the double save (and saves of the season) came with time virtually up.

Thierry Henry managed to make himself some space and shot at goal but Friedel got down well to finger tip the ball away, but it still ran lose across the six-yard box! Justin Hoyte looked odds on to break Rovers hearts but Friedel (showing GREAT agility) sprang up to make himself big to somehow keep out the follow up at the expense of a corner. The rest as they say is history.

WHAT a great double save it was, the first from Henry was good but to react so quickly and recover to make a save when it looked a near certainty that Hoyte would score was amazing. Thanks to Bradders we earned the replay and then a certain Benni McCarthy emerged from the bench to secure a late winner!

Still think that the Pen saves vs the Blades and the saves against Shrek at OT were as good if not better but hey ho, we are talking about Friedel, we expect the extraordinary out of him!

I hate him ;) . They were great saves though. Specialy since they came at the death. He single handily knocked us out of the FA cup.

Based on points gained per season he is the best goalkeeper in the League. I know HDM likes a certain mr.Cech but I wouldnt swap him for anyone.

gunnerkid107 - You probably aren't the only one that hates him dude as he has this effect on A LOT of clubs lol! Yeah, maybe he did single handidly (or double handidly!) knock you guys out of the Cup but in all honesty (although my mind isn't what it used to be!) I can't remember him having to make too many saves, but what he did he saved VERY well. For me a team effort, a corker of a goal from Benni "McWhiningGoalmachine" McCarthy and maybe even some wasteful finishing from the Gooners was what put paid to your FA Cup dreams?!?!

MikeyGamst - I am in full support of Bradders still being one of the VERY best in the WORLD let alone the Premiership, but yeah you are right I do rate Cech as the best, but this isn't to say I would swap Bradders for him.
