The Delap Award - Worst Performance of the Season

The Delap Award - Worst Performance of the Season

Ah yes, never a nice one this.

We here at VB et VBer's to vote for who they thought turned in the worst performance of the last campaign.

Unfortunately in a troubled campaign there was quite the stellar field to pick from.

The now infamous Herold Goulon got a mention for his 'performance' in the 7-1 drubbing at Manchester United.

And where would this award be without a mention for everyone's favourite jogger Keith 'Double Face Palm' Andrews - his Lionel Messi impression in the 4-1 defeat at Aston Villa racking numerous votes up.

But the winner rather aptly came from our worst team performance of the season.

The winner of the 2010/11 Delap Award for the Worst Performance of the Season is... Pascal Chimbonda for his shocker at left back against Manchester United at Old Trafford..

I would say well done to Chimbo but sadly that would be a lie after his terrible all round showing and schooling at the hands of Luis Nani that day.

His display in that match even inspired this joke...

'Have Sky +? Why not pause the game for a short while and then play the match 2 seconds behind everyone else for the full Pascal Chimbonda experience'.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
