Star trio on trial at Ewood Park

FORMER Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar is training with Blackburn Rovers as Gary Bowyer looks to strengthen his back four before the season gets underway.

The experienced Spaniard has clocked up more than 120 Premier League appearances with Aston Villa and Sunderland, but is available on a free transfer after being released by the Black Cats at the end of last season.

And the 32-year-old asked to come and train with Rovers as he looks to earn a deal.

Bowyer is still looking to make additions to his squad with former West Ham defender Jordan Spence and veteran goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown also on trial at Ewood Park.

“Jordan’s trained with us on Monday and Tuesday so we’re having a look at him,” said Bowyer.

“We’re not blessed with too many defenders so he’s spending a couple of days with us and playing in a game this week and we’ll take it from there.

“Carlos is another one who trained with us on Monday.

“He asked if he could come and train with us and that’s what he’s done.

“He’ll look to probably continue that. He’s using us in terms of getting fit and training and it presents us with the chance to have a look at him as well.”

Cuellar, who can play at right back or in the centre of defence, came into British football in 2007 when he moved to Rangers from Osasuna.

Following a successful first season at Ibrox he made the switch to Villa Park for £7.8million.

Ashdown, meanwhile, has been short of games since leaving Portsmouth in 2012. The 33-year-old was released by Leeds United in the summer.

Bowyer added that he will not be rushed into further signings, adding that the mentality of any prospective new player was central to his thinking.

But the Rovers chief did admit that he was keen to bring in more bodies ahead of the season opener with Cardiff on Friday week.

“We could do with adding one or two in terms of the strength in depth but I’m no different to everybody else who is saying that,” said Bowyer.

“We’ve only brought two in permanently so we’ve not been really active this summer but throughout the course of the season we might need to improve the numbers.

“That character is really important to us. We don’t just bring anybody in. We check on the character first and foremost and then it’s up to the player to show us what he is capable of.

“Every situation is different. For some players they just want to come and join in training because they’ve something else lined up, and I’m fine with that if we know them and we know what they’re like. Then there are other situations where players are trying to fight for a contract.”

So far this summer Bowyer has signed forwards Chris Brown and Luke Varney on permanent deals, and defender Alex Baptiste on loan.

Sounds like Bowyer is trying to understand why Spence hasn't established himself at West Ham, he's captained England at every youth level so he must have some talent, yet he's been loaned out to all and sundry for a few years ?

If he's not convinced then Cuellar might not be a bad shout, brings more experience at the back if the wages are reasonable.

GB is all about a squad and team focused on a team ethic and target he won't sign anyone who doesn't fit in with that ethos.

I've seen Spence play a couple of times and he does look a good player but at his age and with his track record I have concerns, I suspect that Spence like many before him got a little too big for his boots.

On the other hand it might be that he has finally grown up or realised there are only so many last chance saloons, maybe this is his.

Cuellar on the other hand is probably ideal, right sided, experienced.

It's nice to have options though.

Talks a lot of sense Bowyer. He's already assembled a squad with enough talent and as he righty says, it's the charater and mental strength that will be the test. If he checks out, Cuellar could be the last piece of the jigsaw.

you are a plonker (GB trying to understand)it would seem pretty obvious to me - not good enough hence loaned out and now got shut of!!!

Nah, you're the idiot! You have not got a single clue what you are going on about do you? Let me point out your idiotic comments and pass my own view:

'you are a plonker (GB trying to understand)it would seem pretty obvious to me' - I think I can understand what you meant by that, although your use of English is at retard level, so it could be misunderstood.

'not good enough hence loaned out and now got shut of!!!' - Not good enough, why has he played at the top level of football in one of the best leagues in the world? Also, who is to say he was being played in the wrong partnership/position
/style of football... Or just out of favour with a manager?

'If these players were so good they would have been snapped up or of interest to other clubs' - Are we not 'another club'? If GB thinks he's good then he should be 'snapped up' eh??

'is GB/Rovers seen as a soft touch for the players put out to grass!' - Again, from what I think you mean by this, my answer is simply... no... GB is quite clear on who he wants and what he wants from them. If the players do not live up to his expectations then they don't get a contract! We've seen this numerous times since he became manager.


Dave, you are a full on idiot with no understanding of football, if you are that depressed then go see someone about it!.... I'm still waiting for your book on football tactics and scouting to come out... When is the release date again?

I am guessing they have also heard that Blackburn just love giving last paydays to over-the-hill crocks so were dying to be a part of the Venkys Revolution which has turned a host of crap players into millionaires in recent years.

Not sure, Cuellar can play right back, which is our weakest area but if Henley is over his injury problems, and subsequent loss of form from last season he still has a lot of potential, and he has age on his side.

Spence on the other hand has flattered to deceive.

Nothing wrong with having a look at them though.

Had hoped there might be some discussion about players but no, we have the world telling DD that he's a tool, amusing, but hardly news, and then the dingles turn up for another pointless pi55ing contest.

So,

Does anybody think these guys would force there way into the starting line up or are we happy with Hanley and Killa in the centre of defence ?
Not sure, Cuellar can play right back, which is our weakest area but if Henley is over his injury problems, and subsequent loss of form from last season he still has a lot of potential, and he has age on his side.

Spence on the other hand has flattered to deceive.

Nothing wrong with having a look at them though.
Not really sure about these two, but it seems very wise of GB to allow them to train and see what sort of commitment to the cause they have. The defence has definitely needed an experienced old head for some time IMO. Are any of these guys leaders? I am sure GB knows what he's doing, and what he requires.
GB done a darn Stirling job in such a short space of time.

I'd stay with last seasons Centre backs to start.I would like to see Hanley fully mature this season, and I think Kilgallon is a solid partner for him. Cuellar may have more experience but unless he's mellowed a bit I think he's a bit too rash, probably more unpredictable for Hanley to play alongside. Haven't seen much of Baptiste either so don't know him as a centre back. Not convinced by Spence, if there's room for developing another centre back in the squad is he going to be a better prospect than one of our own youngsters that GB knows inside out ?

Will Trust GB, I agree he found the right guys last season.

If he's not convinced then Cuellar might not be a bad shout, brings more experience at the back if the wages are reasonable.
you are a plonker (GB trying to understand)it would seem pretty obvious to me - not good enough hence loaned out and now got shut of!!!
If these players were so good they would have been snapped up or of interest to other clubs - is GB/Rovers seen as a soft touch for the players put out to grass!

The only blip in the rightful order came courtesy of Jack Walkers millions which enabled you to occupy a false position until the money ran out..... and now look where you are.

Keep looking up!
So Bob Lord,s money from his business did not keep Burnley in the top flight in the 60,s and 70,s engage brain b4 commenting .

I'm very much of the same mind, let GB sort it out, if the players he is looking at have something to offer that is better than what we currently have, fine, if not stick with what we know.
