KevDP4L has done an assessment on the current Blackburn Rovers squad to see if we REALLY do need to sign anyone...
Just thought I'd do an assessment of what Blackburn really need to bring in during the summer in my opinion.
We all know that Brad is in fact the best keeper on the world, so no need to change there. Problems may arise if he gets injured, because it's unknown yet whether or not Brown can fill in well enough.
Samba & Nelsen really is the best centre back pairing we've had in a while and with Ooijer returning from injury next season, that's 3 top quality centre backs, with Zurab as cover as well.
Two good full-backs in Emerton & Warnock, however doesn't appear to be much in the way of cover. I'm told Berner is a full-back, but without having seen him much, I can't comment on him. If needed Zurab, Ooijer & Mokoena could perhaps act as cover, but you'd want at least one natural full-back to cover.
Very strong in the centre. You've Savage who'll put himself about all over the place. Mokoena who's usually pretty solid in front of the back 4. Tugay & Dunn give the option of player makers in the centre. Then there's Reid as well, who adds pace and strength going forward, and as we all know, can score from almost anywhere in the oppositions half.
On the wings we have two players who are being linked with moves to the big 4 almost every day. On the left Pedersen provides brilliant skill, wonderful goals & brilliant assists. On the right Bentley... well he does pretty much the same! Very little in terms of cover for these two again however, with the best option being to push central players out.
The Roberts - McCarthy partnership really started to click towards the end of the season and looked strong. However Derbyshire too always has an eye for goal whenever he plays. Maybe another striker is required, as the board have already pointed out.
So to sum up I think we need another striker & maybe one or two natural wide-players as back-ups. Perhaps I'm being unfair to Brown having not seen him play, but another back-up keeper may also be worth having.
