McCarthy Top Rovers Forward

Vital Blackburn's most recent Poll asked, "Forward of the Month for October?" We voted in favour of Benni McCarthy.

No surprises with the Forward or the Month for October (unlike September) as with a massive 65% McCarthy rightly this month picks up the honour, as he has recaptured his form after being shadow of himself in the early months of the season.

Roque Santa Cruz's 27% sees him finish as runner up to McCarthy, and as such he also advances to the overall Player of the Month poll, taking place now.

Matt Derbyshire (9%) completed the poll.

So in summary
Matt Derbyshire - 8%
Benni McCarthy - 65%
Roque Santa Cruz - 27%

The positional searches for October's Player of the Month are now out of the way, the overall vote to determine the Player of the Month for October will now take place as the current poll is asking, "Player of the Month for October?"

I kicked Benni of my dream team, then the rest is history. Everytime. Just to think replaced him with Torres.

Your right BITC, he is a storming forward when he is in the mood... and at the moment he really is. As i said earlier I have never seen him close down as much as he did on Saturday.

Benni has often been injured (or suspended?) againt the big teams hasn't he, didn't he miss both Manure games last season? I know he missed the 6-2 against Arsenal away.
I'm sure he'll be up for it, he's VERY hungry for goals and success again isn't he, now that his head is right again.

Yeah, he played REALLY well in that match, I still get angry thinking that we got beaten so heavily, as it was NEVER a 6-2 mauling was it.

I liked Nonda, but I think his legs have just gone. A shame we didn't have him a couple of years ago!

It's good to see that McCarthy's head is back in the right place. You have to give credit to Hughes man management...A lot of managers may haveplayed him even though he was playing badly, and showing no enthusiasm. Hughes took him to one side, told him, got him training more, stuck him on the bench for a few games, and it has paid dividends. So well done McCarthy, and well done Hughes (the HAM partnership...?)

Well said - I think Hughes doesn't take much s**t from his players and isn't afraid to crush egos...

too right... anyone who gets ahead of their station should be put on the bench... its a team game.
