'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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

The Others

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

I think thats every1, i have forgot any1, sack me lol

Nice article, Sasman. Friedel must be one of, if not the best keeper in the Prem - for his sheer dependability and decision making. He seems to get better every season. Can't help thinking we'll rely on him less with Nelsen back in the team though. And go your compatriot Emerton - he's been outstanding this season too, long mayu it continue

thanks kiwi, mate our boys are leading the way nelsen and emerton lol
sasman
good work sas.... Brad in my eyes is the very best the premier league has to offer, having a god goalie is more important than having a good striker.
MikeyGamst
Ryan has played quite a few games sas and when he does invariably our defence looks awesome with him in it....
MikeyGamst

cool_obed, what a mistake! Sorry about that and sorry to all Arsenal fans but I don't know how this ommision has come about. Sas, top piece mate. Nelsen though has been brill and has featured in most games, although he hasn't played in any of six game winning streak!
