Funny how we’ve been stronger at left back than right back.  I would have a Rathbone, Wright, Warnock as solid back up for Le Saux but struggled to pick a right back.  I’ve probably forgotten a few though to be fair.

Warnock was a left back though, and will always be behind Le Saux in best 11's. He's the best left back we have had in the past 20 years though.

Thank you for recognising Ireland is not in the UK 

For people who where not around. His name is Eamon Rogers, he is the king of our land, his hair hangs over his shoulders, tied up with a blue and white band.

How close is Tugay to that 11 Tyrone?

Agree that's high praise for Bellamy indeed considering he only played 32 games for us, but what a player. Had you out of your seat everytime he got the ball.

He could come on for Dougie when Bryan had run them ragged. I always wondered what Tugay would be like playing further forward.

I think he did earlier on in his career in Turkey.

He was so good at dictating play though when he came here, I don't think he would have been as effective further forward

I've seen a lot of great strikers at Ewood over the years that could partner Shearer. Fred Pickering, Andy Mac, McCarthy, Kevin Gallagher, Jansen, Sutton, Santa Cruz etc. I rated them all but Bellamy just had that little bit extra.

I think if we're looking at a "perfect partner" for Shearer, I always thought Santa Cruz would have been an ideal foil for him. Them two could have caused absolute chaos for defenders in there prime.

Individual players though, I have to agree with Bellamy. A fantastic player who always made you think something was to happen when he had the ball.

I still think Archibald would be Shearers best partner . Which one would defenders double up on?

Sutton could’ve scored more goals but was a good partner for Shearer

Yeah Sutton was top class. I remember seeing him chest control a long, wind assisted goal kick from Tim Flowers and drop it instantly straight down onto his foot. A really difficult skill and he performed it to perfection.

The fact that he could play in just about any position on the park at the highest level tells you how good Chris Sutton was.

Annoyingly, he was an excellent cricketer too!
