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
Colin Hendry Award for Defender of the Season
When asked to simply leave the name of your Defender of the Season most felt…
Ryan Nelsen & Christopher Samba should be the joint Award Winners! Congratulations to Nelsen and Samba.
Firstly, Brad Friedel is a gimme; he is ALWAYS likely to win a battle if we were selecting a Goalkeeper/Defender of the season, so his name is written is stone, he gets his own Award!
"The Admiral" Nelsen, better known on this site now as "God" was so badly missed when he was out injured. It was no coincidence that we improved as a defensive unit upon his return, he is a natural leader and guides EVERYONE else who draw in confidence from him. When he returned against Luton Town he looked like he had never been out, if only he hadn't been out all season before this…
Samba, also known as "The Wall" came in in this same Luton game as a late substitute for, I think Nelsen? He had quite a cult following before he even came on and endeared himself to the fans even more soon after, despite his horribly timed air-shot! His performances were fantastic, and he only grew and grew in stature. And to think Sparky didn't want to have to pay him too much last season, he'll now be unable to leave him out in the future…
The pair have been so impressive as a partnership to be joint winners of the Award is a fair call for me.
