International Break Good For Rovers

Vital Blackburn's most recent Poll asked you "Has The International Break Come At The Right Time For Rovers?" 64% in total think the break came at the right time for Mark Hughes' men.

An overall 64% of you feel that the short break from Premiership action could be a good thing for Blackburn Rovers as they look to recover from their disappointing start to the campaign. 50% merely said yes, the other 14% see the break as being beneficial.

The remaining 36% think the International break came at the wrong time for the club. It is true that new arrivals can't gel with their team mates if they are jetting off all over the world, but I would also suggest that the break could give some too much time to contemplate on what has happened so far?

Whatever your feelings are one thing that is for sure will be Rovers are back in action on Saturday against Premiership new boys Sheffield United in what is already a "big game".

So in summary
Yes - 50%
Maybe a short break will be beneficial - 14%
No, new arrivals can`t gel due when flying off all over the world - 36%

The current poll is asking "Was it a surprise to see Shefki Kuqi leave Rovers?"

Globetrotting is good so long as players come back unharmed. From what I can make out Morten Gamst Pedersen scored a Van Baten like volley in Norway's win, more of them please MGP!

would rather the prem carried on the break was a distraction.

Given you are currently 20th the answer has to be YES!

I'm not so sure, sometimes it is better to get back on the horse rather than take a break. Although players not quite up to match speed (Ooijer for example, who played for Holland at the weekend) they will have had more time to train, or indeed get in a game or two.
