Goal of the Season (Against Us!)

Goal of the Season (Against Us!)

With YOUR help Vital Blackburn has been trying to determine what have been the best and worst of the Blackburn Rovers 2006-2007 season.

The nominations are still be taken for other Awards, but the Vital Blackburn Awards for 2006-2007 continue to be dished out with the

Best Goal scored against Rovers this season

When asked to simply leave the name of the player you feel scored the goal, which you feel was the BEST (I know they are all bad but some leave you thinking, well done!) we conceded this Season most felt…

Paul Scholes should be the Award Winner! So congratulations go to Paul Scholes for scoring the best goal we conceded.

No goal conceded is a good goal but this goal from Scholes was a corker. With Rovers holding onto a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford (thanks to Brad Friedel!) the ginger ninja that is Paul Scholes danced his way through the Rovers defence on the hour, beating not one, not two but three defenders before finally beating Friedel to draw Man United level (in fairness the least they deserved!) The flood gates them opened and they ran out eventual 4-1 winners.

It was a goal that had been coming, but even then it took something special to break us down and it certainly was that.

Thanks for voting on this, PLEASE KEEP your votes coming in for these other Awards, as there is STILL time to vote so click here for the list of categories and vote on the one(s) you want!

It was a corker, well done Paul Scholes. With the new arrivals Manure have Scholesy will find it hard to get a regular place at Manure now won't he?!?! Get those feelers out Sparky as your former team mate could still do a job despite age being against him. He was right up in the running for Player of the Year last season wasn't he, so still has a few good years left in him?

Agreed, tho am annoyed it had to be a Scumchester United player but credit where it was due, he danced past 3 players before coolly finishing it. nice one ya ginger to$$er!

I was watching England in the 1998 World Cup when we (England) played Tunisa and Scholesy scored. It was me, a couple of my best friends and one friends sister, anyway when Scholesy scored one friend said "It's a shame he's ginger!" It just so happens that our other friends sister has flaming ginger hair lol! As you an imagine some grovelling was required I was LMAO!!!

LMAO, open mouth, extract foot! Been there, done that too, kinda hard to backtrack when the entire pub hears ya!

Hughes, I think the new arrivals will find it hard to get a regular place with Scholesy still around and in magnificent form. He will do the job for us for two more seasons at least. Anyway, he'll retire from United or play at his childhood heroes Oldham before he hangs up his boots.
07/06/2007 08:42:00
Yep, i don't see scholsey doing anything other than finishing his time at Utd, and then heading for Oldham for either a swan song playing, or maybe even going for a coaching role. Fantastic player, unfortunately for us.

Do you not think these new kids they have signed are direct replacements for Scholes and Giggs. Apparently Sunderland have put in a cheeky 2 million bid for Scholes!?!?!? Surely worth a try????

midlothian99 - This is something (playing for Oldham) that I first heard Scholesy say probably about ten-years ago, so this probably will be the case. WHAT a great footballer he has been, we (England) have missed him!

MikeyGamst - Yeah I saw that dude and had a little laugh with my brother over it, but when we thought about it with the new players coming in (can you really see Carrick AND Hargreaves being left out?!?!) the thought that Scholesy and Giggs could leave isn't so crazy afterall is it? If we could pick him up for a couple of years that would do me, a move to Rovers would be ideal, no moving involved, he knows Saprky VERY well, and he could still move onto Oldham (again without having to move!) a few years later, it's that simple!

Scholes would become a real estate legend. A far as the award goes, can't argue with that. I dont like United but there are some instances where you have to shrug your shoulders and accept sheer class.
