Vital Blackburn’s most recent poll asked, “Rovers Man of the Match v West Ham United?” We voted Jason Roberts.

Roberts picked up the Man of the Match Award against West Ham, deservingly so. After a rare start JR put in a superb performance to justify this place from the start. His 41% saw him claim the Award just ahead of Roque Santa Cruz (35%).

The rest were much the same as each other, although Brad Friedel (10%) did stand out from the others.

So in summary
B Friedel – 10%
B Emerton – 0%
C Samba – 6%
A Ooijer – 0%
S Warnock – 1%
D Bentley – 0%
S Reid – 3%
D Dunn – 1%
M G Pedersen – 1%
J Roberts – 41%
R Santa Cruz – 35%
Khizanishvili (Sub 45mins) – 1%
Derbyshire (Sub 71mins) – 0%
McCarthy (Sub 90mins) – 1%

The current poll, suggested by Hughes Da Man is asking “Will Wigan complete the double over us on Saturday, having beaten us 5-3 at the JJB?

  • Really deserved accolade in my opinion, it’s not easy to come in from the cold as JR did to perform like that, so he deserves the praise.

  • I still cannot understand why he does not get chosen ahead of Benni. I presume that Hughesy doesn’t like upsetting Benni too much so keeps him in the team.

    I hope Jase gets a run now, he has barely had one since he joined nearly two years ago.

  • If he repeats the form of the back end of last season then we really are quids in. He deserves this award and will start against Wigan I am sure.

  • Well played Jase, hope he keeps his place in the team.

    I hope the 6% who voted for samba were joking haha!


  • I would now pick Jason over Benni, just to prove a point to Benni that if he doesnt play well then he’s out of the team like anyone else, Roberts deserves a run in a couple of games. Hughes has dropped Benni b4 lets hope he does it again

  • You cant let a player in. He plays well and then drop him. It doesnt make sense to anyone… and I am sure Hughes is included. All together now… der der der der
