Forward of the Season

Forward of the Season

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

Alan Shearer Award for Forward of the Season

When asked to simply leave the name of your Forward of the Season most felt…

Benni McCarthy should be the Award Winner! So congratulations to Benni.

This was a landslide decision (as with the midfielder Award for David Bentley) and there was only EVER going to be one winner (again as with Bentley) and this winner was Benni McGoalmachine, with him gaining EVERY mention that came along!

Benni has his moments but overall he had a superb first season and made an instant impact on Rovers, the fans and the Premiership. Twenty odd goals and helping Matt Derbyshire come through as well was superb.

How many adapt to the Premiership as quickly as Benni has? Some take much longer, and they almost ALWAYS cost far more than the £2.5 million we paid for him last summer!

His future at the club has been questioned and in doubt at times but it is looking more and more likely that he will be staying with Rovers after all, so the real key thing for him will be the second season, and can he repeat the opening one?

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!

Benni McGoalmachine was dead cert for this Awards wasn't he, NO surprises at all. He had a great first season in the Premiership, a second (which is looking likely to be at Rovers after all?!?!) will be the real tester for him.

sasman - I don't think that he will be a one season wonder (in fact I have no doubts AT ALL that this would happen as it won't) but the second season can often be the harder one (or the third as the case can be, if the first is an adapting one (which Benni hasn't needed) and the second a building one.) I still think until something concrete comes in it's looking good for us to keep him anyway.
