    I know it was just a friendly against Blackpool, but, if Cole and Yorke play back into their form of 3 years ago, and players like Tugay, Duff, Unsal, and Friedel keep their WC form (even if Brad did guess wrong on the PK), then Blackburn could be a sleeper team in the EPL. Add to that young'uns like Dunn and Jansen. Their backline, of course, remains to be seen....

    Blackburn may have the most dynamic attack in the premiership this year. Duff is a wizard with the ball at this feet add in Cole and Yorke up front you have the makings of a skilled attack. The ? mark is the backline.

    Sounds like a job for Gregg Berhalter . . .

    . . . kinda kidding.
     
  6. Why?

    Im sure Gregg can come off the bench and provide some much needed backup every once in a while....

    Teams play so many games that the quality of their 5th and 6th defenders...5th,6th, and 7th middies, and their 3rd and 4th strikers on their depth charts are SO important.

    soccerfan, I bookmark all the sites. But you can just do a search on Google or any soccer links website and you can find it.

    As if I don't like Blackburn enough already, putting Tony "Freakin' Stud" Sanneh on their team would make uneccessarily happy!! Too bad Nuremberg won't sell him yet.

    If they really need backline help, though, a guy like Berhalter, who would come relatively cheap, and is probably not going to play much for CPFC this year, would be a good pickup
