Bentley The Most Underrated
Vital Blackburn's most recent poll, suggested by Clint asked your opinion on the "Most underrated players?" This players is believed to be Rovers' David Bentley.
With more than half of the vote, 54% in fact most people see David Bentley as the man who is most underrated. Do we think this because he is overlooked for England (and has been for so long, EVEN before the so called snub on the Under-21's gave Steve McClaren what he sees as a genuine reason) or because he is overlooked as he plays for Rovers, or do we just think that he is underrated full stop for whatever reason?
Following him came Brett Emerton, with 25%. He might not be the greatest right-back in the world, but he is by no means the worst, and all to often he is not credited for the performances he does put in. Bentley's form last season owed A LOT to Emerton's contribution as well.
Wayne Bridge with 6% headed the rest of the field, which could not really be split after this, which concluded the poll as such, other (6%), Jermaine Defoe (3%), David Beckham (2%), Jamie Carragher (2%) and David Healy (2%).
When Clint submitted the poll (some time ago) he also submitted this along with it, which gives brief reasoning why they were in the poll in the first place.
1 - David Bentley - by a certain England Manager
2 - David Beckham - For his football?? and again by a certain England manager
3 - Jermaine Defoe - Far, far better than his role at Spurs as 3rd striker and England bit part.??
4 - Jamie Carragher - Should he have started alongside Terry for England??
5 - Wayne Bridge - Should he be number1 at Chelsea and for England??
6 - David Healy - Ferguson once said he was the best finisher he'd ever seen and he's proved himself with NI but never got his big chance with club side.
7 - Brett Emerton - still has his doubters with Rovers fans
So in summary
David Bentley - 54%
David Beckham - 2%
Jermaine Defoe - 3%
Jamie Carragher - 2%
Wayne Bridge - 6%
David Healy - 2%
Brett Emerton - 25%
Other - 6%
The next poll, is a hypothetical poll (although I guess the vast majority are anyway!) and is suggested by IsraeliRover, with it is asking, "Which championship player would you bring in before the transfer window closes?"
As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findings…
