    Hey guys...
    wanting to know if anyone has seen Ryan Nelsen play this year. i was just catching up with my brother whos been raving about him.

    hes been talking about how the pompeys were after him and how hes blackburns captain etc...

    basicly weve been arguing over whether hes NZ's best ever footballer. i was adamant Winton Rufer is but my brother thinks Nelsen is.

    my question to you guys is.... has anyone actually noticed him?? im a kiwi and i watch alot of EPL games and even i havent noticed him.

    and is he any good?? ive always got the impression the guy is average at best. sure just playing in the EPL is a huge achievement for a kiwi but i didnt think he was any good to be honest.

    I'm not sure about this season, but apparently he was going quite well his first season and some forums were calling him the steal of the season - had the bigger clubs after him as well.

    He captained Blackburn in the FA Cup a couple of times as well

    blackburn isn't exactly a bad club to be at. he was a regular starter I think for them and the captain too I think. I think he was out injured for some of this season too. I don't think many average players get picked up by a team like blackburn and start. nelsen is the real deal but I don't think he is nz's greatest footballer yet.

    ah dam it. got me there mite :D
  7. He's very important to Blackburn. He adds a certain defensive steel to them when he plays and they look a lot more vulnerable when he's absent. I would say he's at about his level but that's no disgrace.

    It's pretty hard to compare them because they play or in Winton's case played different positions.

    As the others have said he's a good defender and is able to play pretty much every where across the back line, although he use to push forward alot more in the MLS an scored the odd goal here and there, but I guess that's because it's a weaker comp and his role and the tactics were deferent.

    He's our best current player going around and is definitely the best defender to come out of N.Z.

    I like the look of young Chris James (he plays for Fulham reserves) he's one for the future.
