Benni!!! Is he as good as we think?
sasman's views on Benni McCarthy, Blackburn Rovers' South African International striker.
After watching our last few displays, I just wonder whether Benni McCarthy is as good as we think? Whilst not doubting his goal scoring abilities, it's just that the type of goals and the effect he has had is a bit suspect. With the majority of his goals being tap ins or rebounds, is he a striker that is there at the right moment or is he more.
We need someone to be a prolific goal scorer, leading us into the latter stages of the UEFA and FA cups, but is he the man to do that. I'm not convinced. He has failed to score two goals in a game and whilst starting of in a flourish, the goals have died down.
Goals should not be left up to our midfielders to produce, and whilst they are providing a fair few, our forwards, Shabani Nonda, Francis Jeffers and McCarthy really need to pick up their game for Rovers to make a climb up the ladder.
He has shown sparks of brilliance, cutting in and out of the opposing defence, but sometimes just seems lacking the spark so often mentioned with him. Could it be the lack of a capable partner, forcing him to venture deeper into play, or is it that he is simply overrated.
I'm not to sure what to think but hopefully I am wrong. So what do you all think?
