Fans' corner

Blackburn fan Andrew Evans
BBC Sport has teamed up with fans on the 606 message boards to give you a fan's eye view of the Premiership.

Each week, we will be choosing one supporter to sound off about his or her team.

This week Andrew Evans, a Blackburn fan, gives his views on the club.

Who has been your best player this season?

When he has played, Lorenzo Amoruso.

Are there any promising youngsters in your squad?

Jonathon Stead, Paul Gallagher and Jonathan Douglas.

Sum up this season in one word:


Now sum it up in 50:

I think this season has been a time to show that we are a good side in the Premiership and it is a step towards a European finish next season. However, it has also shown that we do need defenders to do a good job of getting rid of the ball at the back instead of being fancy with it.

Are you surprised by Blackburn's lack of progress after last year's success in the league?

If you are going to sell talent like Damien Duff not really no.

What do you think of Graeme Souness?

I think he is the right man for the job at Ewood Park. Good all round manager.

How badly have you missed Duff and Dunn?

Not too badly really - had we won three more home games sixth place wouldn't have been beyond us this season!

How do you think you will do next season?

I think we will get fifth at least next season if Stead continues his one goal in every two games ratio next season.

Who should you sign this summer?

I'd like us to sign a top defender and another striker to replace Yorke, maybe Alan Smith of Leeds.

And who should leave?

Dwight Yorke. We seem to win when he's not in the squad and unless he is prepared to work like Stead has, we won't need him.

Which opposition player do your fans most dislike?

There are a few, Gary and Phil Neville, Roy Keane and Craig Bellamy.

Best game ever seen?

Fulham away this season for me, the way we played was awesome. We showed great character to write of the relegation critics.

Worst game seen?

Southampton away this season. We were totally out of shape in the second-half.

Funniest thing seen at a match?

Leeds' first goal at Ewood Park this year - awful defending!

Biggest disappointment?

Getting relegated in 1998/99 and then selling Damien Duff in the summer.

What's the atmosphere like at your home games?

Very noisy at one end and quiet in the other.

Best ever atmosphere?

Former Blackburn striker Alan Shearer

Has to be 1994/95 game v Liverpool on the last day of season.

Favourite all-time players?

Alan Shearer, Damien Duff and Simon Garner.

Worst player ever seen?

Corrado Grabbi.

What makes you most proud of your club?

That we are one of only three teams to have won the Premiership.
