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 feltů
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.
