Downing England's Most Overrated
Vital Blackburn's most recent poll, suggested by Clint asked you to name and shame the "Most overrated English International?" The winner is Stuart Downing.
With the majority of the vote (32% in fact) Middlesbrough's Stuart Downing has been voted as the most overrated England International. Steve McClaren's golden boy isn't so golden after all is he!!!
Next up saw with 17% was Rio Ferdinand, but there was not much between him and the next trio (who themselves could BARELY be separated!!!) of Ashley Cole (15%), Jermaine Pennant (14%) and Phil Neville (12%) though.
The other gained 0%, so people do not think there should be any others?!?! I would have been tempted to throw Jermaine Jenas into the equation (sorry Tottenham Hotspur fans, this may anger you!) but he doesn't really play that often for England to be rated good or bad does he!!!
Clint also gave a brief reasoning why players were suggested that were (when he submitted the poll) here they are.
1 - Rio Ferdinand - Explains itself
2 - Ashley Cole - Again same as above
3 - Phil Neville - Hard working but what else is there, not Owen Hargreaves is he
4 - Andy Johnson - Gets in ahead of Defoe and doesn't seem to fall for England
5 - Stuart Downing - Funny enough McClaren was his club manager
6 - James Beattie - WHY??????????
7 - Jermaine Pennant - Never was consistent enough to be good enough for England
So in summary
Rio Ferdinand - 17%
Ashley Cole - 15%
Phil Neville - 12%
Andy Johnson - 7%
Stuart Downing - 32%
James Beattie - 3%
Jermaine Pennant - 14%
Other - 0%
Clint has also recently come up with the idea of selecting what we feel is the Best Rovers Starting XI (so we are!) After hearing what people say lets put what most thought to the vote and see which way we go, so the current poll is asking, "Best Rovers starting back four?"
As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findings…
