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!!!

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.

This Santa geezer! Can we swap him for Pizarro? I think we picked up the wrong one of the Munich shelf!

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.

Bentley was good that day - I thought Nelson had a decent game too

Fair call that freidelno.1.... Nelsen never gets any recognition (apart from by me!!! LOL)... despite being a god of a defender.

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

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.

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.
