Which one player would you poach from… Blackburn Rovers?

Use your vote wisely…


The scenario: You’re the manager of a Premier League team, and you’re allowed to strengthen your squad by signing just one player in the January transfer window. But you can only choose someone from Paul Ince’s Rovers – so who do you pick?

Your options: On the menu today: the two defensive towers of Ryan Nelson and Christopher Samba, the guile of Roque Santa Cruz, the promise of Matt Derbyshire, the experience and flowing hair of Tugay. You’re right, Blackburn’s cupboard looks a bit bare.

But there can be only one. Vote below:

Earlier this week, you chose Cesc Fabregas from Arsenal, and Ashley Young from Aston Villa. Both were voted No.1 by huge margins.

    Toughest one yet. I’ve gone for Gamst Pedersen even though he isn’t as good as he was when he first arrived. We need a left winger who can score and isn’t more concerned with who won the 3.30 at Haydock. I’d have gone for Samba if it wasn’t for having great centre-backs.

    As for the others:
    Arsenal – Adebayor
    Aston Villa – Young

    I’d go for Matt Derbyshire, he’s good young striker, we’d have him at West brom. We need all the help we can get.

    is this some kind of joke! how disrespectul to the rovers fans that view this site!! its obvious that the southern fairy media trapped in a world of the ‘top four’ elite have no respect for the other teams that make the league up. unlike other teams blackburn have not sold there sole and remain a football club for the its local people. however i will quite happly carry either ryan nelson and pederson down to london for you in exchange for one apple and one pear!!!

    What are you guys on about?

    They’ve already posed this question about Arsenal and Aston Villa so it’s obvious they are going through every club rather than specifically targeting poor Blackburn.
