Rovers Players Report
10 games in, 21 points, who would of ever said. As a team, we have played some outstanding football. How about our players. Below is my summary so far, taking into account only our premier league games.
Brad Friedel: Big Brad. What can we say. Absolutley superb, have not seen him make a blunder in ages, definitly our most consistent player. 9/10
Brett Emerton: Everyone had their doubts, but Brett Emerton has become solid in the back, fitting in perfect with Bentley on the flank. Shown lots of promise in coming forward, plenty more to come. 7.5/10
Christopher Samba: A revelation. What can we say, featured in every match. The absolute brick wall. Pace, strength agility, all for a big guy. Needs to touch up his heading at set pieces, could provide a few more goals. 8.5/10
Andre Ooijer: The surprise. Featured in plenty of games this season, solid, consistent, always covering up. What he lacks for in speed, he makes up for in positioning. 7.5/10
Steve Warnock: Surely England has to come calling soon. Plenty of pace, darts with the ball, creative, and guess what he can defend. Our best left back in years. 8/10
David Bentley: Superb. Deserves more England call ups, if not, he can become Australian, we will take him. A superstar 8.5/10
David Dunn: Sparky has brought the best out of another one. Plagued by injuries, Dunny has come back stronger then ever. Brings the hunger to the midfield. 8.5/10
Tugay: Hasnt played every game, but when he does, we take notice. Still has the magic pass, though his age is affecting those legs of his. Great team member. 7/10
Robbie Savage: The game changes when Savage is playing doesnt it. Tempo lifts, more passion, more hunger, we cant ask more. 7.5/10
Morten Gamst Pederson. Where has he gone? Started of slowly, but i think the rest is doing him well. Played superbly against Tottenham, im sure he will force his way back in. 6.5/10
Benni McCarthy: Started of slow, but he has it all back now. Building a tremendous partnership up front, RnB Roque n Benni...nice 8/10
Roque Santa Cruz: Our best player. So much flare, talent, creativity and has the midas touch. Sparky strikes again. 9/10
Matt Derbyshire: Little chance, but takes it when he gets it. 7/10
Jason Roberts: Struck by injuy, i say he has one more chance: 4/10
Aaron Mokoena: does his job, nothing special....6/10
Ryan Nelson: Cant remember if he has played this year or not.... sorry lads, lol
Olsson: good kid, plenty of talent, will need time: 5/10
