What was December top Rovers Goal?

What was December top Rovers Goal?

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!

Before casting your vote in the poll (the poll will be added later tonight) here is a recap of the top six goals for December.

If the visual description isn't enough to refresh the memory check out the video clip to again relive the goal in all its glory from several different angles thanks to our friends at you tube.

Shabani Nonda
Saturday 2nd verses Fulham, Ewood Park, Premiership (2-0 win)
With the Congolese striker in desperate need of a goal he finally got one after more than two-months of trying. Stephane Henchoz's long ball from the back expertly picked out Nonda but whether he intended to bring the ball down and then shoot or if he intended the touch to be the goal scoring effort only he knows, but do we care!

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Saturday 9th verses Newcastle United, Ewood Park, Premiership (3-1 defeat)
With the Norwegian very much out of form he needed to produce something, and that he did with a superb effort just into the second half. He picked up the ball, ran with it for a while them unleashed a venomous 25-yard drive into the top corner that left Shay Given helpless despite his best efforts, all of this with his right foot!

Lucas Neill
Wednesday 13th verses Nancy, Ewood Park, UEFA Cup (1-0 win)
In the dying moments of the UEFA Cup group E clash against the run of play Rovers stole the win to top the group. With Nancy being unable to clear the ball if found its way to Neill who chested the ball down to give himself some space and time before drilling home giving the goalkeeper no chance. If Neill's possible transfer from Ewood won't be worth millions the goal certainly could. To see goal click here

David Bentley
Saturday 16th verses Reading, Madejski Stadium, Premiership (2-1 win)
After winning the ball back from John Oster on the half way line Bentley ran and ran and ran with the ball before unleashing an unstoppable 20-yard pile driver into the roof of the goal late on. To see goal click here

Benni McCarthy
Tuesday 26th verses Liverpool, Ewood Park, Premiership (1-0 win)
This was a great team goal, with a patient build up. Tugay's tremendous skill then devilishly delightful through ball picked out Morten Gamst Pedersen in the box who then squared to the waiting McCarthy who smashed home from close range to give Rovers a priceless win. To see goal click here

Shabani Nonda
Saturday 30th verses Middlesbrough, Ewood Park, Premiership (2-1 win)
Lucas Neill's long cross field pass was watched over his shoulder by the Congolese International who then expertly placed a volley beyond Mark Schwarzer for a superbly taken goal, the kind of goal that made Mark Hughes want to sign him. To see goal click here

It's a toughy. Between Bentley Gamst and Benni for me. Benni's is a wonderful team goal that demonstrates the kind of football we are capable of. Bentley's is a massive goal in the context of the season and it is a tremendous effort considering the distance he has run. Finally Gamsts is just a beautiful stike and epitomizes what the guy can do....on either foot!!! But for me the winner is..............Bentley!

Very true roversman any three could be winners. I love the Benni goal (hence my doing an article on it last week highlighting to the doubters this is what Rovers CAN and DO do regularly!) so would love that to win, MGP's was such a sweet strike but Bentley's was something else and was a REAL important goal.... It should be a good contest whatever though.

I know I have just been watching them all again and Nonda's are both excellent finishers for technique and Neill's aint bad either. Still Im happy with my choice!

I'm going for Nonda's goal v Boro. It looks simple but that volley when the ball is going over your shoulder is a very tricky skill to pull off. Nonda for me although it is a good selection this month mate.

As I say "should" be really tight, the goal against Boro from Nonda was top drawer wasn't it to watch it with it travelling that distance then control the volley as he did takes great technique... lets hope for a close run thing.

I think that finish from Shabani is a sign of just what he is capable of and hopefully now he has found his feet we can see a few more of them.

You don't score goals like that by fluke do you! Sure you may miss more than you score if you keep trying (anyone would) but to even be able to try it you have to believe in your ability and KNOW you COULD score it.

are we taking importance into consideration? Bentleys League but also Neils to finish Euro group winners in the dying minutes....

Indeed govtpros....that was the deciding factor in my decision. Bentley's goal gave us an important away win and has since lifted the squad in just as an emphatic style as the goal was scored in.
