BRFCS MotM: Jermaine JonesA new feature will be added to BRFCS from now on — it will be a chance to select your man of the match for each game. We will trial this for the last 4 games of the season (starting with the Bolton one) and next season we can hopefully have some structure around “our” player of the season. With a bit of luck we could maybe even start the annual BRFCS awards (let’s see how it goes).
The first match that we have taken the vote for is last week’s home game against Bolton — a vital win which will hopefully keep us up, and a massive 3 points in the bag. Although Martin Olsson stole the headlines with his toe-poked goal from the left hand side, the immense Jermaine Jones was the BRFCS Members’ choice for Man of the Match, taking 46% of the vote and edging out Olsson, who had 40%.
Jermaine Jones won the MotM award based on his energetic display, tracking back, throwing himself into tackles, as well as supporting attacks when possible. Also, for a change, our midfield actually bossed a game for once and much of this was down to Jones’ all-action performance.
There is no doubting that Jermaine Jones has proved a useful addition to our squad, especially in recent weeks, and this has now led to Kean saying that he wants to sign JJ on a permanent deal in the summer, and that Jones wants to stay, too.
