The Best Rovers Defence?

The Best Rovers Defence?

We all have opinions on what we think is the best Blackburn Rovers starting XI, let's start to share them!

We've been looking at the Greatest Ever Rovers Squad and Starting XI but Clint has put forward an idea (which I think is a very good one) on the current squad, so lets run with it.

This is what Clint had to say:

As we have seen there are some on the site that don't rate Roberts, so they would probably put Derbyshire with Benni, and there are some that maybe don't rate Samba and would put Ooijer in the middle or indeed the right instead of Emerton. I would be curious to see the different suggestion for the different teams that each member reckons is the best, as each member has a strong opinion on their team, which is the way it should be!

So will we run with this idea, let's get some debate going. We all have opinions so it is time to put our money where our mouth is as we start with the discussion looking for what we feel is the best Rovers team with the DEFENDERS, the Goalkeeper is a given in Brad Friedel so we don't need to discuss this!

Ooijer, Samba, Nelsen, Warnock. Easy enough. I want Glen Johnson at Ewood though as right back. What do you reckon?

I would still like to see us sign a right-back. The other three have to be Warnock, Samba & Nelson.

Guys you were meant to post where the link told you LOL! But I'll let you off.
im_a_blackburn_rover - Personally I don't really rate Glen Johnson at all.

A specialist right back of the same quality as Warnock would be nice, wouldn't it...The other 3 do pick themselves, which is good and bad - I don't like the fact that there is such an obvious gap in class between them and the other defenders. I'd much prefer a tougher decision here, as I'm sure Sparky would.

Ooijer, Samba, Nelsen, Warnock- Unfortunately that's only good for 1 season, since Ooijer is quity old. We need a decent RB (Baird/L. young). Glen Johnson is a solid RB but a very bad personality outside the field (perhaps a bad influence on the young players). Emerton is great- but not as a RB, but maybe as cover.

My ideal starting XI would be Brad - Ooijer- Samba- Nelsen- Warnock- Bentley- Reid- Savage- MGP- Roberts- Benni.
