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

Rovers' Superman

Following yet another superb display, Brett Emerton recieved the man of the match award in the league match against Liverpool. AFter the match, Mark Hughes spoke to Radio Rovers, with the official Blackburn site posting the following comments quoted by Sparky

'Brett is a great athlete and he has that great versatility that we can play him in different positions and he can affect the game. He's not one of those players who moans and groans because he is not playing in his favourite position, he just gets on with it. He's a great professional and i thought his performance was excellent'

At the start of the year, many had doubts of Emertons ability as a right back. However, he is shown the critics the door, combining with Bentley on the right flank.

Emerton has raised his performances to another level with Sasman calling for a new contract for the lad.

Hopefully, Emerton continues his grat form for Rovers, and hopefully lead the Aussies into the next world cup hehehe

Well done emo, i had faith mate, keep it up, and tell bresciano and grella to come over in January
Has he played in the net yet? :)
will it ever happen
Yeah you are right sas Emerton has been superb this season, well in all truth for the past season and a bit on the whole. I know he still gets caught out defencively at times, but he has been very good, and much better than most expected.
His combination with Bents has been outstanding at times hasn't it.
Hughes Da Man
yea they have developed a connection, dw mate im sure braddo does not need to be replaced in the nets with emo lol
We'll never be able to replace Brad! Emerton had a great game - we're lucky to have players who can slot in and play well in other positions when we have injuries
looks like we kept the better half of our two aussies lol, i remember judas saying how the hammered had a great ambitioin and future lol, good luck in the relegation battle...emo the king of australia lol
When u look back at that other Aussie we used to have on our books who played at rite back but went to West Ham, not for the money of course, but for "Footballing Reasons" lol It was the best thing that could've happened for Emerton! He has really come on since and although still not the best tackling rite back in the league his work with Bentley has been a massive plus for the team!
he still can hold his own when tackling, lets not forget that, i think his only weakness is positioning, thats were players like ooijer and nelsen can help out
Emerton and Bentley are a good partnership on the wing to - He's a proper wing back
yea spot on freidel, welcome to vital blackburn, havent seen you before. I think our team suits the wing back role, with emo and warnock always pushing on foreward
I thought him playing in Centre Mid was a huge mistake but he proved me wrong. Keep going Brett you have gone from a fringe player to a must have overthe last 2 years.
FreidelNo.1 - Yeah, sorry dude I've not seen you either (well until this week) so welcome, you are now officially a VBer!!!
Hughes Da Man

Hughes Da Man
