What if Blackburn Rovers were a ‘two-man team’?

Much talk already this season about Liverpool being a “two-man team”, ie. Steven Gerrard and Nando Torres. Both of whom are almost dead right now.

With that in mind, I thought it’d be fun (hold that thought) to look at each Premier League club and apply the same thinking…

We’ve done Arsenal, Aston Villa and Birmingham City already.

Today is the turn of Big Sam’s Blackburn Rovers.

So, the usual drill – clear your mind, use the force etc…

I want you to think of Rovers as a two-man team (like Liverpool)… hold that thought…

Which two players do you see?


I see Ryan Nelsen and Chris Samba, two men I wouldn’t want to meet in a well-lit alley, let alone a dark one.

Who do you see?
