Western Sydney Calls for Emerton

Western Sydney Calls for Emerton

Brett Emerton, signed from Dutch Club Feynoord in 2003, recently spoke to Australian Reporter, David Riccio, in the Daily Telegraph Newspaper.

Emerton, the most versatile player in the English Premier League, recently signed a new contract, extending his stay at Blackburn until the end of 2012. However, this looks to be the last contract Emerton Signs for Rovers, as he looks to head home and establish a new franchise in the A-League.

In the interview, Emerton is quoted

'I definately want to finish my career back in Australia....I'd like to give something to the game back home. I've got a few years left on my contract here, so I'll probably come back after i finish that

The man who famously rejected a move to Train with Manchester United in 1999, telling his father who was on the phone to Sir Alex Ferguson at the time, that he was too young and wanted to compete in the Olympics, has repaid Blackburn with his consistent efforts on the pitch. However, many might think he can play on past 32/33 in the EPL.

Personally, I feel it is best for him to leave whilst he is on top. Many stars have slowly faded away, playing into the late 30s just for more money. We all know that money is not Emerton's priorities. We hope he continues his great form and consistency in the coming seasons, and wish him all the best.

Emo is one of a few players whose opinion of I stick to stubbornley. The guy is a legend. Not the most technically gifted players but his effort and consistent puts him above many

Emo had a great first game v Wolves and then faded and seemed too weak in the tackle over his first two seasons. However, since then he has been a pillor of consistency and has pace and power which makes him a great player for Rovers. Whatever Brett decides we can only hope Grella is just as good.

Bret is so under valued. He runs his socks off week in week out! He doesn't get much love from the Blackburn End but he has more commitment and passion for the team than some of the 'stars' who get their name chanted week in week out, but then leave as soon as another opportunity comes along!! Keep doing what your doing Bret!!

Emo is def. underrated. I am not a fan of him until I saw him played personally against birmingham last season. he works so hard and is very strong. most importantly, he stays fit.

I wuld put Brett on a par with Zurab as far as being underrated goes. he has stuck here through thick and thin. I remember when Boro came in for him and he turned them down flat saying he was a "Rovers man".

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
