you shouldn't be in the Young Player if the Year too - sheer greed!
I'd have had Mikel Arteta in there instead. But then, I'm not a professional footballer.
to Doyle - outstanding season.
Ronaldo has to win both. If not then Drogba for the main award.
and I suspect that Ronaldo will win both the prizes. Drogs will be runner up. Third place is up for grabs between Scholes (because the violent little ginge is credited with having a good season) and Fabregas, because he's the best of an underachieving lot at Arsenal. Unless there is still feeling for Gerrarg.
i do think though that you shuoldn't be able to win both.
shows up the big boys if a kid wins it
is Matty Taylor?
He might be spending it in the New Forest.
Monday market day? Knock-off jewelery isn't going to sell istself...
Come on, no player can match his effortless performances this season.
i'd go for him
If so, you can't really argue with the list. The people that play against them (you can't vote for team mates) would know a helluva lot more about it than us minions do
Three Man Utd players in there = impressive (and annoying)
Rooney is rubbish though
(dove_from_above/olegrich pub talk before he scores a 25 yard lob)
Thats a contender for most ridiculous statement ever.
I was shitfaced.
And I didn't say he was "rubbish". I said he was "over rated"
And I stand by that. But yes, the timing of that conversation proved to be a little embarrassing
6 weeks ago our point was valid. I don't think it is anymore, he has raised his game.
He has been pretty awesome of late. I still don't think he's quite the miracle man that everybody seems to think he is. But then, he's only 20 or 21. It's pretty easy to forget how young he still is
everyone has dips in form, it's just ronaldo hasn't yet.
rooney's trouble is that he has patches of meh and patches of genius.
for someone to win both. If a player is good enough for the full accolade, then they shouldn't be in the Young PotY as well.
Drogba and Doyle get my votes. Lennon is WAY over-rated! Has Giggs had a "amazing" season? Where's Michael Essien?
Any reason you're ignoring Ronaldo, who, all bias aside, has been far and away the best player in the league this year?!
he'd be my runner up.
These lists pick themselves every year.
And is this the first year like ever that Thierry Henry isn't there?
Also, Rooney hasn't really been THAT good this year. Like, really.
Unless Scholes gets a sympathy old man vote and wins the main one.
Fabregas for young player of the year
Ronaldo for player of the year
My nominations would also include the amazing Mikel Arteta, Joleon Lescott, Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch, Ricardo Carvalho, Michael Essien, Didier Drogba and Giggsy.
, no contest to be honest.
scored more goals than berbatov though? and probably has more assists.
i'd still include berbatov ahead of gerrard or fabregas but i don't think rooney is the one on that list that hasn't performed.
surprised Lampard isn't there.
He has been as good as he usually is...
Lampard being good means he can score goals from between 20 and 30 yards.
admitedly from 5 or so more games
