Search for a Hero


Recommended Posts

With no possibility of bringing in a saviour to turn things around until the transfer window opens in January, in the words of the song, Blackburn must search for a hero from within.

With Rovers not having kept a clean sheet all season and not having scored a Premier League goal since the away game at Leeds in the beginning of October, will their hero emerge tomorrow night to give them three points to start the climb out of the relegation zone.

Tomorrow night, Blackburn will be without suspended midfielder David Thompson and striker Andy Cole. Whilst manager Graeme Souness has a wealth of midfielders to select from, especially now that Scotland and Turkey have allowed Ferguson and Tugay to join up with their respective international teams on Tuesday, Souness’s major problem will be the striker selection.

Souness has the option of four strikers with the experienced Yorke and Jansen appearing to be first choice to start in a crucial game against fellow strugglers Everton, however Souness may surprise everyone by giving youngster Paul Gallagher his debut start in the Premier League.

With Craig Short making a successful return in the reserves mid-week, with the exception of the injured Amoruso, Souness has the full first team defensive squad to choose from, including experienced back up for Friedel, in the form of on loan Villa keeper, Peter Enckelman.

Rovers Squad : Friedel, Enckelman, Neill, Johansson, Short, Todd, Taylor, Reid, Tugay, Gresko, Ferguson, Flitcroft, Gallagher, Yorke, Jansen, Emerton, Baggio, Babbel, McEveley, Grabbi.

Everton themselves have a number of injury problems, with David Weir, Steve Watson, Duncan Ferguson, Kevin Campbell, Alessandro Pistone, Lee Carsley and Richard Wright all reportedly out, David Moyes will select from.

Everton Squad : Martyn, Hibbert, Yobo, Stubbs, Naysmith, Linderoth, Gravesen, McFadden, Kilbane, Nyarko, Rooney, Radzinski, Jeffers, Simonsen, Li Tie, Unsworth, Clarke, Osman, Chadwick.

Referee. Phil Dowd.

Today manager Graeme Souness has issued a rallying call to all those who care about the club and I quote Souness from the official site.

“The fans are absolutely vital to us, perhaps even more so when we are loosing. This isn’t the time for pointing fingers or arguing about this or that. I’d like to think we are in it together”

So in the words of the song. Search for the Hero, (not only on the pitch but also) Search for the Hero inside Yourself.
