What was January's Top Rovers Goal?

What was January's 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 here is a recap of the top six goals for January, a month in which we scored our fair share of goals, with quite a few beauties I might add!

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.

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Sunday 7th verses Everton, Goodison Park, FA Cup (4-1 win)
At the time Morten Gamst Pedersen was rapidly getting back to his very best (he's since found his best!) His 25-yard free kick with the difficult to judge FA Cup football was a corker from the top drawer (as Jonathan Pearce would say!) Up and over the wall and past a flapping Tim Howard who had more chance of taking off than saving it. To see goal click here

Paul Gallagher
Sunday 7th verses Everton, Goodison Park, FA Cup (4-1 win)
With the ball delivered up to the tall Scot he expertly chested the ball down before turning Joseph Yobo and slotting under Howard. The purists out their will say he was given too much time but even being given time didn't make what he did easy. To see goal click here

Benni McCarthy
Sunday 7th verses Everton, Goodison Park, FA Cup (4-1 win)
The South African made a substitute appearance and wrapped up the game once and for all in injury time. Not once but twice did Benni almost lose his footing but he kept fighting before beating his two men and rifling an unstoppable drive that whistled past Howard. To see goal click here

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Saturday 20th verses Manchester City, City of Manchester Stadium, Premiership (3-0 win)
Having already scored one goal (unbelievably with his head!) Morten Gamst Pedersen then scored with a trademark free kick. A fantastic left footed strike from the left hand edge of the area from 25-yard curled around the wall and into the very corner of the goal beyond Nicky Weaver's disappearing dive.

Matt Derbyshire
Saturday 27th verses Luton Town, Kenilworth Road, FA Cup (4-0 win)
Having made several runs previously narrowly being caught offside each time he again collected a ball on the run, ran with it for a while before drilling home without looking at the goal. To see goal click here

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Saturday 27th verses Luton Town, Kenilworth Road, FA Cup (4-0 win)
Having taken a corner Morten Gamst Pedersen was lurking around the area waiting for a chance. After a comical air kick from Christopher Samba the ball eventually found its way back to Gamst who first time expertly curled the ball into the corner with the outside of his left boot showing great technique.

Me has a sneaky feeling that Morten Match Winner (another of BomBom's quality Christenings!) could well win this… Do ya think!

I'm sure you do WhiteHartSpur, and I doubt you are the only one Spurs or otherwise. But he's ours and unless stupid money is paid will remain ours for another 3-years or so! He did sign a 4-year deal last summer didn't he?

Gamst loves it at Rovers and we love his goals. I think it is obvious he will be winning this month with the strike against Luton coming up trumps.

lol, I'm a much respected site editor so as much as one of my first thoughts was to have a little laugh at it I thought I'd leave it to someone else to pick up on...BomBom you've come through for me, so please do clarify WhiteHartSpur.

When you have a mind that lives in the gutter, it is merely a matter of time before you drag everyone else down to you HDM!! See the effect you are having on me! Now I only hope that WhiteHartSupr is a female, otherwise.........LOL

I know it's not good enough really, I ALWAYS only mean my gutter humour in a comical way though, never mean anything by it. As for WhiteHartSpur...each to their own if it proves otherwise? lol
