Recommended Posts

In case you were wondering, and I know you were, Benni McCarthy (Rovers 4th highest Premier League scorer) has joined Orlando Pirates back in South Africa.

I still can't believe that the S.Africa World Cup couldn't motivate Benni to get fit and play for his national team hosting the W.C in his own country.

What the hell happened to him.....he was great, now he's a joke. :(

Shame to see such a talented player let himself go. He couldn't even motivate himself to keep fit, and he's a professional footballer! Who's to say why he let his career go downhill? Just wish the best of luck to him and thanks for the good times.

I know she's writing for a Sun audience and changes her language accordingly, but really, is there any need?

They must be annoyed but that is a bit unprofessional of her.

Agreed with that. For at least a season, maybe two, we all knew Benni was already overweight. What did they expect? I vaguely remember everyone on here saying we'd totally ripped them off. Typical Wham. I've got no sympathy for them and giving them an over-the-hill striker and letting them pay for the privilege was one of the best things we've done for this league. :D

What's his problem? He's being played to play football and he got himself into such a state that he was useless. I'd be pee'd off if I was Brady and fairplay to her for saying something about it.

Benni was great in his first season, but he has always been a bit of a tit. It was endearing when he scored and played, but embarrassing when he didn't.

By tits I'd imagine he's talking about Sullivan and Gold.

Ha ha thanks Gav, I've been a bit out or sorts lately and that cheered me up!
