Reidy Back In The Groove

Reidy Back In The Groove

Blackburn midfielder Steven Reid is hoping to have an extended run in the Rovers first team now he is back in the groove after solid outings over the Christmas and New Year period.

The Republic of Ireland international returned after 14 months out with knee and back injuries this season but suffered a calf strain in December.

Reid came through the 90 minutes at the Reebok Stadium unscathed and with Aaron Mokoena now at the African Nations Cup, Tugay injured and Robbie Savage sold, he is keen to play more.

The 26-year-old told the club's official website: 'I was delighted to be back out there.

'Hopefully I can train consistently and get a few weeks of decent training and just kick on and get fitter and more match fit as the games go on.'

I think we agree that isnt quite 100% just yet but he is a big asset to the team and a cracking player. With more midfield players likely to arrive at the club during the transfer window Reid is confident that this will raise his game even more.

Reidy hasnt had any luck with injuries and I hope he gets back to his best. He has impressed me when he has played and you couldnt hope to meet a nicer bloke. Come on Stevie!!!

FN1 - That is the only one available I believe, HDM can correct me if I'm wrong!!! lol. I think durks is right that he has played it simple but he has been deployed in the holding midfielde role when playing alongside Dunn so keeping it simple maybe the way to go for now.

I think we will see him in a more advanced role when playing with Tugay and Axe. With Dunny in there he takes care of the majority of the surges forward. Good plan I say.

The Axe's absence in Africa makes the decision to sell Savage very strange to me... However, hopefully Reidy'll get back up in the groove and hopefully we'll buy in another creative midfielder!

I would personally like to see us sign Koumas, he's a player I have always rated highly. We have been linked with him so many times since Hughesy became manager (obviously, this is the press using his links with Wales, putting 2 & 2 together and getting 5!!) But I think he offers a good balance of creation/grit.

He has certainly eased himself in but I have been relatively impressed with his rane of passing since he has returned. He is looking out for more stretching passes and when hsi fitness returns his execution will improve. He's getting there!
