Rovers Man of the Match v Man United

Vital Blackburn's most recent poll asked, "Rovers Man of the Match v Manchester United?" We voted Roque Santa Cruz.

Not for the first time, in fact it is quite rare it isn't him Santa Cruz (35%) has been voted Man of the Match for Rovers in our 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford last Sunday.

Beaten into second place with 13% was the match Christopher Samba, followed closely by Ryan Nelsen and David Bentley (both 11%).

The rest were much the same as each other, although David Dunn and Morten Gamst Pedersen (7% each) did stand out slightly from the rest.

So in summary
B Friedel - 8%
B Emerton - 1%
C Samba - 13%
R Nelsen - 11%
S Warnock - 1%
D Bentley - 11%
D Dunn - 7%
A Mokoena - 1%
M G Pedersen - 7%
R Santa Cruz - 35%
B McCarthy - 5%
M Derbyshire (Sub 78mins) - 0%


There is always speculation that Mark Hughes could leave Rovers for another team (which he will at some point) but he is also close to signing a new contract. So the current poll, suggested by MikeyGamst is asking "When will Sparky Leave??? (Heaven Forbid)"

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

It's usually Santa, the Wall or Bradders that gets it, so no real surprise here is there!!!
Hughes Da Man
This is a bit silly lads... Bentley was easily our man of the match and I was there!!!!! I am all for the majority rules thing but Santa did nothing after an admitedly good first half hour.
MikeyGamst
This Santa geezer! Can we swap him for Pizarro? I think we picked up the wrong one of the Munich shelf!
merlin
no chance... we got the lucky dip right!!!
MikeyGamst
im with you on this one mikey but then i wouldnt really say anyone stood out we played solidly without anyone really shining!
durks de rover
I'd say Bentley was the best player by a mile durks... everything decent we did went through him. The rest were solid without shining as you say.
MikeyGamst
Bentley was good that day - I thought Nelson had a decent game too
FreidelNo.1
Fair call that freidelno.1.... Nelsen never gets any recognition (apart from by me!!! LOL)... despite being a god of a defender.
MikeyGamst
it was like winning the lottery when we got Nelson... then we did it again with Samba - two great buys who I think would get into any Prem side
FreidelNo.1
They are up there with the best of them as a combination samba has been guided through his first year in the Premier League by Nelsen... I dont feel Nelsen gets the recognition he deserves.
MikeyGamst
In a way I'm glad tho, as maybe bigger clubs don't look at him and consider him to buy - I mean when Portsmouth we're bidding for him we could hold onto him, but if Man utd did it could be a different story.
FreidelNo.1
not only that... he's a great captain too
FreidelNo.1
He's the best defender we have in my eyes... and your right about the captain thing.
MikeyGamst
leads by example
FreidelNo.1
God is an ispiration for those around him.
Hughes Da Man
I must say for me there was no MOTM against Manure :(, but we'll make it again next weekend, after Paraguay's 2 more victories in the WC qualifiers!
diegoveron
hope they do for you diegoveron.... and Israel win fingers crossed.
MikeyGamst
Israel did win, didn't they? Beacause Paraguay did! With Roque scorin a goal (as usual, for aour national team!)
diegoveron
A good weekend all-round wasn't it :)
Hughes Da Man
yeah beers are on sasman I have been told.
