Hughes Would Be Most Missed

Hughes Would Be Most Missed

Vital Blackburn's most recent Poll, suggested by roverspowerhouse asked "If they left who would Rovers miss the most?" Of course it would be Mark Hughes.

By a MASSIVE winning margin, gaining 59% of the vote it has been agreed that when Rovers manager Mark Hughes does leave Ewood Park (as it will be when, not if) he would be most missed. Hughes has worked miracles with Rovers transforming us from a relegation threatened side into an established top half a dozen team, quite possibly even Champions League place challengers?!?! Sparky has got Rovers playing superb football, but has also retained the strong aggressive (but not OVER aggressive) approach to give us that extra bite too, and has signed some superb footballers, so it really will be a sad, sad day when he leave, but hopefully this is still MANY years away yet.

Out of the playing staff, unsurprisingly Brad Friedel would be Sparky's nearest challenger. His 15% saw him finish as runner up, and he too will be VERY, VERY much missed when he finally does decide to hang up his gloves. However, he is still as good as ever, if possible he actually gets better with age so hopefully we will still have plenty of years left yet.

Not a lot could separate Ryan Nelsen, Christopher Samba, David Bentley and Morten Gamst Pedersen, with them getting between 5% and 9% of the vote each. However, the fact that Nelsen ONLY gained 5% very much surprised me!!! As good as they are would Samba and Bents really be missed more than God should he leave?!?!

Benni McCarthy and "other" would be least missed, gaining 0% each to complete what was an interesting poll.

So in summary
Hughes - 59%
Friedel - 15%
Nelsen - 5%
Samba - 7%
Bentley - 9%
Pedersen - 5%
McCarthy - 0%
Other - 0%

Robbie Savage has once again launched a scathing attack on Wales manager John Toshack, but is it one attack too many or was he right? The current poll, suggested by Hughes Da Man is asking, "Was Robbie Savage right to verbally attack John Toshack AGAIN?"

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

Sparky is soooo important to Rovers isn't he, so it was little wonder that he gained so much of this vote (and rightly so)
I dread the day when Bradders finally packs in, but all being well this won't be for a few years yet.
However, I'm VERY surprised at how little of the vote God got, ONLY 5%!!! Less than Bents and the Wall, equal with MGP, this can't be right can it?!?!

Well hughes has brought the majority of these players in and with others got the best out of them so it was inevitable he would win this poll. I think the thing with God is that he is now taken for granted, which is no bad thing because he never disappoints.

God deserves more than that!!! i voted for him as I see people are losing the faith!!!! Lets not take him for granted guys.
17/10/2007 10:29:00
And as far as the winner of the poll goes, we all knew there was only ever gonna be one winner
