rover2u Posted October 9, 2007 Share Posted October 9, 2007 Colin Hendry is of massive significance to blackburn rovers history. He was a colossal defender(and attacker in some cases) over his two stints at our club. He captained the side in many occasions and was dubbed as "mr blackburn rovers".The boy from dundee scored in our glorious full members cup final victory over charlton.Hendry scored two goals againt milwall as a make shift striker gaining us valuable points in the run up to the play offs in 92,and also gave a defending master class in 95 v everton away that even had alan hanson praising him for joy. Until last season i was under the impression that no other rovers centre half would go on to be such a legend,however in seeing the emergence of a certain christopher samba i am convinced if he stays at the club and keeps improving he will overtake hendry in the blackburn rovers hall of fame. The guy is a colossous like hendry,but also has speed,composure and all the necessary tools to become the best defender not only in england,but in europe. Lets just hope that we tie him down on a lengthy,clause free contract and watch the giant congolese defender develop into the world class defender we all believe he will be.
