Rovers Performance of the Season

Rovers Performance 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 the

Best Rovers Performance of the Season

When asked to simply leave the name of the opponent against whom you feel saw Rovers give their Best Performance of the Season most felt…

vs. Liverpool (Premiership 1-0 win) & vs. Chelsea (FA Cup 2-1 defeat) should be the joint Award Winners!

The Boxing Day win over Liverpool saw Rovers put in a fine display (especially in the second half) with Rovers stringing together some fine moves with the winning goal being one of the best worked goals Rovers (arguable any side?!?!) scored during the 2006-2007 season.

Brad Friedel also had a fine game, making some breathtaking saves, one in particular from Xabi Alonso late on. What made the win all the more impressive was the fact it came off the back of the 6-2 defeat at Arsenal (not that the score was a true reflection of that game!)

The FA Cup Semi Final defeat to Chelsea saw Rovers put Chelsea under the kind of pressure in the second 45 minutes that I have not seen ANY side put Chelsea under for a number of years, and was probably the best 45 minutes of football that I have witnessed by Rovers (quite possibly any team?!?!) in a long, long time.

It still hurts to think that we lost that game but we certainly gained a lot more respect as a result.

The 4-1 FA Cup Third Round victory over Everton also featured quite prominently in this category, and technically shared the vote but most mentions were for one of the other two first "or Everton" so I counted the first mention first really.

Thanks for voting on this, PLEASE KEEP your votes coming in for these other Awards, as there is STILL time to vote so click here for the list of categories and vote on the one(s) you want!

Liverpool were used as the image to try and get some of them over to have a chat as we've not heard much from the bin dippers (lol!) this season. Chelsea WILL know that we gave them a game so if they want to find their way over THEY WILL!

They couldn't be separated, and I didn't feel it right to separate them either both saw Rovers play some great football even if the results were different. If only we could have changed the scorelines in each games eh?!?! But then again we may well have lost that world-class Rovers move that got us the winner against Liverpool and that was something else, WHAT a move that Tugay was instrumental in, he made Stevie G look like a mug.

We gained a lot of respect for our performance against Chelsea and rightly so, we put to bed the ghost of the previous Semi.

You left yourself open to it didn't you :) What made that 4-1 win over Everton all the better Phartman (if you didn't know?!?!) we played what was concidered a "weakened" team that many viewed as a team disrespecting the FA Cup, we showed them!

Yeah, t'was quite a performance. Alas, not unlike ourselves, fixture congestion effected consistency and there wasn't enough of this week in week out. Sort that out and we could have a VERY unfamiliar top 4 next season or is that just the lilly white tinted spectacles talking again...

it is the spectacles mate... I think the top 4 will be of a similar make up but that doesnt mean we cant give em a run for their money....
