First of, let me make something clear. This is not a we are right and you are wrong article. Everybody has their opinion, I am just going in to bat for Team Benni.....
As our dear friend Mr Delap has pointed out, Benni McCarthy has skipped two days of training, infuriating Mr Sam Allardyce. Unprofessional, very...... However, do you blame the lad?
Signed for 3.5 Million pounds, Benni McCarthy proved to be an instant success, slotting in 24 goals in his first season in the English Premier League, guiding Blackburn into European football under the guidance of Mark Hughes. Benni was the star, and deservedly so. However, even then, his work ethic was always questioned, but, the goals flowed in.
Seasons followed, 11 and 14 goals, including several vital goals to ensure Blackburn's English Premier League Safety. Whilst not the preferred striker under Paul Ince, and initially Sam Allardyce, Benni became the impact man. However, his work ethic and weight became an issue. Until the Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts partnership was reformed, late 2008/09 Premier League Season. The two linked up, and scored vital goals, keeping Blackburn in the EPL.
Where am I going with this.....
All we hear about is Benni is overweight, and his work ethic sucks. Well you know what, Benni's work ethic always has sucked. However, now, he is being made a scape goat. Why? Because we cant sack Sam and his backroom staff. Every other club in the Premier League, heck, the world, will sack the manager when things go wrong. But, we will get rid of our main man up front, simply because he does not fit Sam's style of play.
Sam's style of play.....what a load of turd.... The players hate it, the fans hate it, and now, since the cloud of the Carling Cup is now lifted, by the time the owners hate it, it might just be too late.
Blackburn Rovers Football Club gave Benni McCarthy the opportunity to play in the English Premier League. Benni McCarthy has played in the English Premier League, delivering over 60 Premier League goals in 4 seasons, and owes absolutely nothing to the club. Over the last 2 seasons, he has been treated horribly, and the team that does sign Benni McCarthy, well, its there gain and our loss.
BRFC have made a big mistake here, a big mistake......
