November 2006 - Goal of the Month

November 2006 - Goal of the Month

Each month, you the Vital Blackburn members are given the chance to vote for what you thought was the goal of the month. Where possible you are also given the chance of actually seeing the goal!

The votes have been cast and after being given the option of these four (the only four scored in the month!) Rovers goals for November…

Thursday 2nd verses FC Basel, Ewood Park, UEFA Cup (3-0 win)
The midfield maestro brought the ball down on his chest from 35-yards plus, beat his man with ease runs forward, always looking around before unleashing high into the roof of the net with an unstoppable 25-yard effort. Tugay v Basel (h)

Francis Jeffers
Thursday 2nd verses FC Basel, Ewood Park, UEFA Cup (3-0 win)
When played through Morten Gamst Pedersen was brought down for a penalty. Francis Jeffers had no hesitation and grabbed the ball. Jeffers blasted the ball down the middle of the goal for his first in Rovers colours, now that's how you take a penalty! Jeffers v Basel (h)

Benni McCarthy
Thursday 2nd verses FC Basel, Ewood Park, UEFA Cup (3-0 win)
Very good work in the corner from David Bentley saw him find Francis Jeffers who then pulled the ball back for the waiting Paul Gallagher who's effort was saved but only parried to Benni McCarthy who in typical goal poachers fashion followed up to slot home. McCarthy v Basel (h)

Sunday 19th verses Tottenham, Ewood Park, Premiership (1-1 draw)
A corner was headed away by Ledley King to what Tottenham Hotspur thought was safety, Tugay had other ideas! He watched the flight of the ball all the way steadied himself and showed world-class technique as he volley home the sweetest goal you could wish to see, what a strike! Tugay v Spurs (h)

…you voted unsurprisingly in favour of Tugay! The real question was always going to be which one was it! You decided the one on Sunday 19th against Tottenham Hotspur at Ewood Park in the Premiership was the best.

So Tugay scoops the Goal of the Month also finishing runner up with a goal almost as good as his winner, and a goal that would have easily won any other months Goal of the Month!

Do you agree with the winning strike or not? Why not have your say below…

Tugay was always going to win with this goal most likely as it proved!
