As excitement for the new season reaches fever pitch up and down the country, it is fascinating to see that our latest poll (to date) has yielded a whopping 78% of votes in favour of Blakey being our top scorer next season.
Kevin Doyle, scorer of 9 goals despite playing the majority of the second half of the season as a lone striker (and our Player of The Year in my humble opinion) and record signing Stephen Fletcher, who bagged 12 goals for a side ultimately relegated have thus far received a mere slice of the vote (less than 25% between them in fact).
We would love to hear from those backing Blakey, whilst acknowledging and respecting of course all opinions- if he can rediscover his form then who knows what he is capable of.
Despite his 'fall from grace' last year, (he was never fit from day one), let's remember he is a Manchester United graduate (how many players, played or blooded have proven poor) took the Golden Boot two years in a row despite spending half a season with a poor Plymouth side. I was watching a compilation of his goals for us during our promotion season and the only striker I can compare him to is Bully.
As for Sam Vokes, I think he has been cut something of a raw deal. He triumphed at the mighty Bournmouth despite their ultimate relegation, he scored for us on his debut, score for Wales a week later if I am not mistaken (he also broke the Under 19 record scoring after 36 seconds on his debut) before being dropped to the sidelines and being offered sparing parts. Despite the glaring miss in the last minute against Manchester United I do not think the boy has put a foot wrong since he signed for the club. I do not believe Leeds was the right club for him to go on loan to, especially once they got their strikers fit, and whom struck form immediately, but the kid's mins per goals ratio is somewhat striking if you explore the details.
orbid that one or both of our main two struggle for form, get injured, suspended and such forth, I think we have tremendous ammunition on the bench in these two.
As long as Doyle and Fletch stay fit I do not expect Blake to get many starts, but whilst saying that, I expect him to cause mayhem from the bench and chip in with eight at least. Vokes will prove his own worth. Mark my words.
Opinions are sought, so please share them here or on our message board.
The season is here. Again. Get ready to enjoy & embrace.
