Jeffers WILL be Gone in the Summer!

Jeffers WILL be Gone in the Summer!

Vital Blackburn's most recent poll, suggested by MikeyGamst asked, "What will happen to Francis Jeffers next season???" According to most he'll not be here that's for sure.

Thanks to MikeyGamst for answering my call for poll suggestions (I have another of his to use soon!), this made an interesting poll even if it did confirm what most of us would have already thought, that we believe Jeffers will be with another club next season.

A combined 87% believe Jeffers will not be at Ewood Park next season, be it on a permanent move to another club (80%) or another loan deal (7%). 7% think he'll be on the bench, with another 2% thinking he'll be a regular starter (highly unlikely!) with the final 4% of the opinion (and maybe cruel, if not harsh) that he'll be injured.

So in summary
He'll be at a different club - 80%
He'll be on loan at a different club - 7%
He'll be on the bench - 7%
He'll be a regular starter - 2%
He'll be injured - 4%

After ANOTHER Brilliant David Bentley performance against Watford, coming hot on the heels of that against Chelsea the current poll is asking, WHY isn't Stevie Mac picking David Bentley for England?

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

I do feel for Franny, not sure he's really had much of a chance, as 10 minutes here, 15 minutes there isn't a lot is it?!?! That said did he really give enough when he did get more of a chance?!?! I'm still not sure that I wouldn't mind him returning, but even if he does he'll have little, or no game time next season.

I voted for the bench option... I think he will be given a chance next year... why doesnt he bulk himself up a bit though??
20/04/2007 08:58:00
I think I voted the other club option as I think this is likely, as I say thought I wouldn't mind him coming back and having another crack, maybe given more of a chance?!?!

He will be at another club next yr, wot with McCarthy, Roberts, Derbyshire and Gallagher, plus maybe another depending on the summer buys I just dont see how Jeffers would fit in. He could however be away on loan with a view to next season, getting him fit and a bit of confidence in his game with goals, however I still see him as the 5th of 5 strikers at the club. Nonda should be returning to Roma too in the summer. The two players have had the chance to make it, maybe not so much in games for Jeffers but Hughes decides on his teams through training as well! Its a shame too as the two players came to the club, Nonda had a great goal scoring reputation and Jeffers had the chance to re-build a stuttering career

Jeffers has had too many chances in the Prem with Arsenal and Charlton. He couldn't even cut it in Scotland.... He is no more than a Championship player - for whatever reason, he has let all of his talent go to waste.
20/04/2007 10:24:00
The reason Mclaren doesn't pick Bentley?? Because he is a muppet, and one of the worst England managers!!! At least with Joe Cole back, he hopefully won't pick the woeful Downing, again!! It's a tough one with Bents - Lennon has been one of England's better players - and should play on the right, now Joe Cole is back. I have no problem with Bent's playing there, but I think Mclaren will favour Lennon - SWP is looking good (as usual) but he is so scarecely used by Chelsea - personally I have always rated him.
20/04/2007 10:28:00
i rate SWP too but i think Chelsea are wasting him, he's the type of player that need to be playing week in week out in my opinion, at rite wing as well.
20/04/2007 10:30:00
Bents should at least make the squad then, I think Lennon is a good player but its good to have differing types of players, Lennon and SWP are runners whilst Bentley is more of a crosser with a wicked free kick - remind ppl of anyone?? Saying Bentley can also play in the middle and on the left surley this versitility could see him in the full squad.
20/04/2007 10:34:00
I rate SWP and Lennon also, think Lennon will be awesome (well even more so) he made a real difference when he got his chances at the World Cup but he still has a tendancy to go missing at times, can be out of a game for a good hours or so before coming to life (a la Spurs' 2-2 draw with Sevilla) Bents is constently involved and offers the quality from a cross that NO ONE in this country can better. I'd love to see Bents of the right and Matthew Taylor on the left given the chance in a friendly. I think our next one is with Brazil, now what a test that would be!?!? Bents (and Taylor) would love it! It would be like watching Brazil vs... Brazil! LOL
