Jenas Premiership's Most Overrated!

Jenas Premiership's Most Overrated!

Vital Blackburn's most recent poll, suggested by Clint asked, "Overrated players in the Premier League - YES OR NO?? But who is most overrated??" The winner Jermaine Jenas.

With the majority of the vote (and by some way in the end!) Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, and England International Jermaine Jenas (with 27%) has been voted the Premiership's most overrated footballer, and personally I would agree.

Jenas is a good footballer, I am not doubting this but he is NOWHERE near as good as the hype that surrounds him suggests and quite frankly how he constantly makes it into England squads I don't know…

Ashley Cole (again VASTLY overrated!) was out in front for a large portion of this poll before the true winner stood out to be counted, and Cole had to settle for second with 18%, closely followed by Rio "I'll blame everyone else but myself for MY own cock ups" Ferdinand with 14%. Frank Lampard and Tottenham's new £10 million man Gareth Bale then came in neck and neck with 10%.

The least overrated player from the list was Glen Johnson; he failed to register in the vote.

So in summary
Gareth Bale - 10%
Tal Ben Haim - 3%
Wes Brown - 1%
Michael Carrick - 3%
Ashley Cole - 18%
Kieran Dyer - 6%
Rio Ferdinand - 14%
Jermaine Jenas - 27%
Glen Johnson - 0%
Frank Lampard - 10%
John Obi Mikel - 1%
Michael Owen - Nowadays!! - 2%
Theo Walcott - 4%
Other???? - 1%


As the search for the Greatest Ever Rovers Starting XI continues, we select one left-back from the three in the squad, so the current poll is asking, "Greatest Ever Rovers XI - Left-Back?" Make your vote count, but vote WISELY!

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findings…

I'm sure we'll get "David Bentley is sooo overrated it's untrue" but the simple truth is he isn't!

WHY is Jenas constantly selected for England?!?! Luckily he doesn't play much! In fairness to the guy though when he started a game for England a few years back he was the best player on the pitch!

To be over-rated though, doesn't that mean that someone actually has to think you are half decent. I'd have had Lampard in that, because at least people try to argue that he's good. Everyone seems to have completely given up on Jenas - 8M :-D, next you'll be telling me someone had the stupidity to spend more than a couple of million on Kevin Davies. Oh, hang on... ;-)

You trying to tell me that Jenas isn't good? How dare you you peice of @%$*!£* he is the greatest thing since I don't know what, the best thing ever! (if Spurs won't defend their boy I will lol!) Who am I kidding I think he's pants. You make a good point though Head Rover Heels. As for Kevin Davies anyone stupid enough to pay more than £7 million for him deserves to see him only score a handful of goals before sending him back to whence he came :)

Jenas is awesome you piece of flying %£*(&&^%Y.... we are a massive club and Berbatov is god in human form. You are a small club with no fans and Jol is the King of Holland.... there you go Spurs fans... though I'd save you the posting.
