Benni's Ideal Rovers Strike Partner?

Benni's Ideal Rovers Strike Partner?

Benni McCarthy has proved a massive hit for Blackburn Rovers this season (was it ever in doubt!) But who would you pair him with?

The South African International has been fantastic for Rovers this season and not just because he is scoring goals; his all round play and lift he is giving others have been instrumental in our season in my opinion, long may this continue!

If you could pair Benni McGoalmachine (as he has been so fittingly dubbed by BomBom!) with any Rovers striker past or present who would you like him to be paired with and why?

Share your views below and then well look to make a poll out of it and put it to the vote...

From the present for me JR is still the man at this point in time (even when players are fit) with my boy Derbs pushing him hard. From the past god where do you go, guess one of the obvious would be Alan Shearer.

Obvious answer is Super Al, but I would like to see a fit and young simon Garner in this side. With Bents and Gamst supplying and Benni's creativity as well as his attacking prowess, what else could you want in that mix but an out and out goal poacher! In a way, im glad Bellers went as I think him and McCarthy are very similr players that they both work the channels, they both drop deep and they both can attack defenders with ball at feet, so I dont think they wouldve been a great pairing personally! Garner or Shearer for me

For me it has to be Francis Jeffers - the guy has such great striking instincts. No, really - thank god he has gone to Ipswich.... I agree with HDM - Shearer past, JR present...

When I read the headline JR was the name that popped in my head, as much as I love to watch Matty... JR just needs to find his form again, poor lad hasn't had the chances yet. as far as in the past then yes Al Shearer (JR is similar style).

Its between Roberts and Derbyshire isnt it, for me at the min its Derbyshire as Roberts will come more into it next yr when he's fully fit, then i'd go for him over Matt but he'll be pushed close by the young lad. From past players id say Bellamy

Bellamy for me! As much as I like Roberts, I feel that we need another striker come the summer! It seems the talk of Bellamy coming back is fading! I would welcome that as I think him and Benni would be something else!

You had me going wellsy for a minute I was ready to launch into one then you redemed yourself :) lol. Franny has been unlucky but it's just one of those things, luckily the calculate risk hasn't cost us, we had nothing to lose.

I'm a MASSIVE Derbs fan (you guys know this!) but for the sake of the team when fully fit, and he's getting there JR is the man he compliments Benni well, as he will Derbs if Benni is out or rested. In JR, Benni McGoalmachine and Derbs we have three superb forwards who can and will score 30 plus goals between them at least in a season for me that's enough so altohugh you always want/need to improve areas I'm not sure I'd want anyone to come in in this area in the summer. If Nonda goes we'll have to get someone but maybe with a season behind him we'll see something different next season? We have youngsters coming through in De Vita and Garner who could have similar impacts to Derbs if given the chance over the next season or so so unless someone really, really world-class comes up lets leave it. Bellers as good as he was/is I'd not want him back, he'll cause unrest for me and people will leave as a result. With BomBom here don't think they would have been as good a partnership as we might think they would have been, a young fit and at his best Garner would be a great partner also. Imagine Shearer, Garner and Benni!!!!

Derbyshire looks pretty good up there learning from Benni. Shearer would have been awesome with Benni, maybe even better then with Sutton. I really do have my doubts on Roberts. I would rather play Kuqi any day of the week instead of Roberts. Kuqi had that physical power and could finish, somethin we havent seen with Roberts. Kuqi was one of our most underrated players and left the club without anyone really noticing. Was our super sub, scoring more goals then any substitiute in the premier league
