Farewell Benni McCarthy!!!!

Farewell Benni McCarthy!!!!

In what has been the most debated topic this whole transfer window, and really the only significant change in the Rovers line up, Benni McCarthy has been snapped up by West Ham for 2.5 Million pounds, with only hours to go in the transfer window.

Love him or hate him, Benni was our man. He took the English Premier League by storm, banging in goal after goal. However, he did not fit in Sam Allardyce's plans, and after a long window, has finally been signed up by Gianfranco Zola at the Hammers

Benni left with some kind words to say to all, showing that sometimes (well most times) the media can put an ugly spin on things.

Speaking with SSN, Benni Says

'Since the manager took over we never had a disagreement or fall-out,I've always been respectful to him and he's always been up front with me'

Benni continues to discuss the transfer

'He's said that I wasn't in his plans, that I wasn't the kind of player that he was looking for at that point in time with the system that he plays. I accepted that and it was clear that it was time for me to move on. I could have never been happy with playing well in one game and then being left out the next'

I dont think anybody could disagree with that! Benni was used more of an impact player in the ALlardyce era, something which he rather isnt. However, Benni did have some great games this season, and would be overlooked the next, which really was a shame. However, he did not fit in with what Sam wanted to build at era, thats life.

Benni had some final words

'I thought I'd served my time at Blackburn and it was time to move on. Unfortunately I left in the manner that I never really had a chance to say 'thank you' to the fans - but now I've got to concentrate on West Ham and their fans.'

All in all, lets just wish Benni all the best and hope he can regain the form for West Ham and make the World Cup Squad in his home nation. (We dont play the Hammers again, so he can score as many as he wants over there lol)

JRob gets in this picture, as this is what Benni should be remembered for, when he and J Rob paired up together up front, it was beauty and the beast, the big ugly bugger who worked his arse off yet couldnt score in a brothel, paired up with the magician, who wouldnt run to save his life, but everything he touched turned to gold!

Benni will be missed by some and not by others. but his goalscoring record at rovers was superb averaging a goal every 2 games will be a big void for rovers to fill and I wish him all the best, this move will cement his place for the World cup and it will pain me to see him grabbing all the goals ect for the Hammers. He was the one player in the team which oozed quality. He was prob the only player we had too which was world renowned. Good Luck Benni Rovers didnt replace you today cos you was ireplacable :-)

Forget about replacing someone of Benni's quality with 2M, it can never happen. We'd had faced problem to replace him in the first place, now that we didn't replace him, i'm praying hard Dunn & Kalinic stays fit, score some goals... Without these two, i can't see where the goals are going to come from.
