Two Blackburn Strikes in Top Ten!

Two Blackburn Strikes in Top Ten!

In what is being billed as possibly the best selection ever Blackburn Rovers have not one, but two goals in BBC's Decembers Goal of the Month competition.

Morten Gamst Pedersen's effort against Newcastle United (click here) and David Bentley's goal against Reading (click here) - also the goal voted as Vital Blackburn Goal of the Month, have both been selected with eight others in a selection claimed to be the "best ever selection with at least six that could be in the running for Goal of the Season!"

Clearly with the Match of the Day team running the contest a Rover will not claim the accolade; if Tugay`s wonder strike against Tottenham Hotspur in November wasn't deemed good enough to win Novembers then Gamst and Bentley have little hope.

As it is I think that Matthew Taylor's goal for Portsmouth against Everton from the half way line should be the winner but as he isn't a big name player and doesn't play for a favourable team it will clearly be an unbiased selection with either Michael Essien or Didier Drogba of Chelsea or Paul Scholes of Manchester United winning...

The technique in Paul Schole's effort was incredible. To hit a rasping, dipping volley on the bounce took some skill. It probably wasn't the best looking goal, but it was certainly one of the hardest to score.

In my opinion, as good as Bentley's goal was, it came about through some very slack defending from us. Ingimarsson stood off him for 40 yards and should have made a move towards the ball. Bentley's finish was a thunderous shot, but he should not have been allowed to travel into our box unchallenged.

This is what makes the fact that Tugay DIDN'T win the goal of the month compeition for the BBC in November all the more incrediable! His strike was equal arguably better than Scholes' so should that win when the Maestro's didn't how can this be, to say Anelka's (as good as it was) was superior to Tugay's in just plain wrong! I don't doubt the fact that neither Rovers goal will win; the fact that Gamst and Bents are not players with the big four will be counted against them though, as I say Taylor should be rights win for his effort against Everton for Portsmouth, bu he won't for similar reasons. Again this goal was a volley from the halfway line no less.

I thought I was a cynic but you are the king. I think Taylors goal will win, even though he plays for Portsmouth. Anelka won, he doesn't play for one of the big four!

we actually had 3 goals in the goal of the season last year but they included Gerrard's from the FA cup final at the last minute. All three of our goals where better than that strike! They had to do that because otherwise someone out of the top four would have won the competition and that just would not have done!

The fact that Tugays goal did not win the November competition was quite frankly disgusting.

Don't know if that is good or bad r.waterfall? Anelka used to play for two of the big four though didn't he and he is a player that the MOTD crew love. At the time he'd been coming in for mass stick and couldn't score for anything this proved his turning point.
