Stan Kroenke insisted that Josh came out as number 1.

I'd happily pick any player on our books who didn't play for us last season.

I haven't looked at the list so no idea who's been announced so far.

Nobody really stands out do they. :roll: :lol:

Yes. Yes, they can. :oops:

Honestly if it's one of the women's team wins it I'm done. I'll fuck off and watch Tedium Ball - or Grid Iron as augie calls it! :wink:

With the greatest respect to saka and tierney (the only two worthy candidates) there should be no player of the year in a season where we failed to qualify for europe for the first time in 26 years, where we limped dicked our way out of both domestic cups, and a season which we set now records for the least amount of home goals scored and the most home defeats :roll: :oops: :oops:

Tierney and Saka stand out. ESR as well for half a season.

Pepe shouldn’t be 2nd, no way. Take away his Europa League goals against cannon fodder and 4 goals in the dead rubber games at the end of the season and it’s a pretty underwhelming season.

Can we make Willock player of the year? Scoring in 7 consecutive league games deserves recognition :lol:

I can't believe I'm going to defend Pepe here but for a winger/wing forward 16 goals and 5 assists in 47 games isn't all that bad.

If the strikers, PEA especially hadn't been so poor this season and the overall performances so shite his stats wouldn't even be an issue. Compare him to others playing the same/similar role and he is ahead of most other similar players in the league.

And before people say but he cost 72M, he was valued at about £35M when we went in with an insane, utterly dodgy price for him. We put the idiotic price in him not the player

Those three aside, no one else really should be considered. Though Gabriel was player of the month for first three months with 70% plus of the vote each time.
