The Blackburn Rovers fans jury

This Is Lancashire: The Blackburn Rovers fans jury The Blackburn Rovers fans jury

Who has been Blackburn Rovers’ best player so far this season and why?

THERE have been a number of impressive performances this year. Players who can retain possession while demonstrating defensive awareness are hard to come by, and Tom Cairney has done just that.

Scott Dann has been solid in defence and Jason Lowe has applied his usual work ethic but added more quality to his ball retention and decision making.

Josh King, who still needs to improve his final ball has also been a constant threat, but my player of the season has been Grant Hanley. He slipped up at Wigan, but has showed great composure, strength, speed and alertness.

KELVIN WILKINS

WHILE Jordan Rhodes remains a model for any aspiring footballer, in effort, attitude and talent, Grant Hanley has been a colossus and Tom Cairney has brought a sublime touch, calm presence and range of passing not seen since Tuguay left.

And for someone whose career has hardly been glittering it took Tommy Spurr no time at all to become a firm fan favourite. I saw four shirts with his name on as early as Burnley away.

SIMON SMITH

I AM not sure you can name one player in a season when the team has been so inconsistent.

No one individual really stands out though at least Jordan Rhodes scores goals.

The names of Tom Cairney and Tommy Spurr spring to mind for their character and attitude while some may point to Jason Lowe as an unsung hero.

David Dunn rarely lets us down but his injury nightmare continues so he’s difficult to nominate. It would be equally difficult to nominate the worst players and that in a nutshell explains our mid-table position.

I agree that Spurr, Hanley, Lowe and Cairney have been the solid performers this season, although King was electric until teams started to double mark him. Taylor, Evans, Dunn and Rochina have looked good in what little we have seen of them and Rhodes has battled on through injury and lean service. Dann, Kane, Williamson and Campbell have struggled to find much form at all, Kean is making a couple of mistakes every game and Best is demonstrating all the very worst traits of the archetypal footballer, arrogant overpaid and ungrateful to the core.

Cairney's a good young player but don't compare to Tugay no one in this team comes close to him and as for Kean we've got the championships own Jo hart good keeper just far to many mistakes hopefully when/if Robinson comes back he can push into the team n get back to his best

Pretty much agree, if I had to pick someone now it would be Evans but it's a daft question this early in the season, I prefer to wait until the end.

I also think that Dann has played a lot better than people give him credit for, lets not forget that he is basically surrounded by a bunch of kids most of the time.

If we lost him for any reason I think we would notice it more than any other player in the squad, and I include Rhodes in that.
