Rovers Man of the Match vs. Chelsea

Rovers Man of the Match vs. Chelsea

Vital Blackburn's most recent poll asked, "Rovers Man of the Month verses Chelsea?" Most voted in favour of David Bentley.

Most, if not all of the players on display for Rovers during a showing of the highest order, rocking a Chelsea team like I've not seen in recent years could have been voted as Man of the Match, but David Bentley, with 25% has been voted just that.

Bentley put in a fine performance, causing Chelsea constant problems with his runs down the right and his usual expert delivery so just shaded it ahead of Ryan Nelsen who gained 22%.

So in summary
B Friedel - 11%
C Samba - 4%
R Nelsen - 22%
S Warnock - 2%
A Mokoena - 2%
B Emerton - 2%
D Bentley - 25%
D Dunn - 20%
M G Pedersen - 6%
J Roberts - 5%
B McCarthy - 1%

I called for people to help me out with poll suggestions and MikeyGamst answered my call! So the current poll, suggested by him is asking, "What will happen to Francis Jeffers next season???"

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findingsā€¦

It was a tough call but Bents just got the accolade, personally I think the Admiral should have got it but I'm a defender so I'm probably biased! Although I know that Clint thinks Bents should have got it so he'll be pleased, but he's also a defender!!!

I was happy enough, Nelsen had a great game but Bentley was more productive throughout is all. Have to say that I think Roberts had a very good game as well. When he's fit he's def going to make a few folk sit up and take notice.
18/04/2007 10:39:00
JR was VERY good, when he's fully fit he'll be superb like I knew he would be, 2007-2008 is going to be a GREAT season! MikeyGamst has spelt it out for you Stevie Mac, LISTEN to the football world, we can't ALL be wrong!

I went for Roberts myself - He terrorised the Chelsea defence and made the perfect foil for McCarthy (and will for Derbs too). For all the stick he has been getting from some quarters, undeserved if you ask me, he really needed a good showing once back to fitness, and he certainly did that. Exciting times to come next year methinks. Not taking anything away from the others - Nelsen was superb, Bentley was extremely creative, i thought the only one off par was McCarthy, but that's his style of game - do not much until a moment of genius comes along.

Looking forward for next year. We will have to make a few changes though:* Add a scorer to our strikers in our squad, since it seems Gallager can't offer us any goals (yet?). Maybe even 2 if Nonda leaves. * Add a quality right back. Emerton is a player I love. He adds another dimension in attack, but looks rather nervous when it comes to defending.... {Baird or Bardsley look good} * Suppose Tugay will leave, and Mokoena does'nt turn into a playmaker, I think we need another creative MC. Dunn+Reid+Savage look good, but 3 is'nt enough in the PL.
18/04/2007 13:02:00
TOTALLY agree that JR is the perfect foil for Benni or Derbs, have said this all along and we all know it is true. A fully fit JR is as good as ANY player of his ilk. Got a feeling we'll see another goal from him tonight!

what about Ooijer at right back??? was doing a great job there before he was accidently injured???? Gotta be first choice...
18/04/2007 15:25:00
Ooijer is too slow for rite back but i agree that we need a reconised one, Emerton is good there and I would keep him in that position but to add competion for the places is wot Rovers need, too push the players into giving the best games every game. At the min we have players to fill in a every position with Emerton able to push Bentley, although we dont really have the same up front, where Benni is nearly assured a place and the same with Pederson. I know these are two of the better players at the club but Id just like to see them pushed a bit more from within, nothing against them at all
