jamie redknapp - player of the year


The Brit

Recommended Posts

according to him it's between rooney and fabregas...mmm...he's supposed to be an expert, so how on earth can he not even mention anelka or drogba...those two have been at least as good as the two he mentions...obviously our two have a big problem, they're not media darlings like united and england player rooney or glorious footy of arsenal...just happen to be the two best strikers in the league.

From daily mail:

Superman Rooney

While the rest were involved in other matters, Manchester United crept back on top of the table with a bludgeoning display from the mighty Wayne Rooney.

If we were to vote for the Footballer of the Year today, would it be Rooney or Cesc Fabregas? My vote would go to England's finest. Let's hope he keeps this form all the way to South Africa.

Unfortunately the votes are taken around this time of the year and whoever is playing well at this time gets the votes. Remember Giggs got it last season?

I seriously stopped giving a f**k about these awards some time back.

Rooney and Fabregas are single-handedly keeping their respective clubs in the title race.

Not everything is an anti-Chelsea conspiracy you know.

Have to agree with that.

I think Fabregas is currently the best midfielder in the premier league.

And Rooney IS Man Utd. Without him they are f**ked.

As good as some of our players have been, we are able to cope (to a large extent) whoever is missing.

I bet Drogba's goals have kept us in it too! People's memories are short...how many times did he bail us out single handedly? Saying Drogba is not even in the race is ridiculous.

Yes, but we've proved we can win without Drogba (less so Anelka- my Chelsea POTY so far).

Arsenal and Man United are yet to prove they can even compete without Fabregas or Rooney!

The two logic don't add up. If United cant win without Rooney then how the hell is that related to the fact that Drogba and Anelka have been fantastic this season? Surely they are worthy of some recognition even though we can afford without either one of them?

while I understand where you're coming from, I think it's ridiculous to undermine drogba's and anelka's season just because united have relied heavily on rooney and arse on fabregas...without our two there is no way we would have been top of the League for most of the campaign so far...drogba has only been missing for a couple of games, we'd be f*cked if he was out for longer...they have also performed in the big games this season whereas rooney and fabregas haven't...and if you read my post, I astually say I can't believe our strikers aren't considered to be in contention with the other two...

Besides, the critics are very short-sighted. Drogba's been at the African Cup of Nations for a couple of weeks and Man Utd and Arsenal are currently first and second respectively (regardless of such complicated intricacies as games in hand), while in the last few games Rooney and Fabregas have been banging them in. Anelka's not really 'fashionable' enough to be nominated, sadly...

That's kind of the point I was making and just highlighting how wrong that is

Not sure about being "not fashionable". Anelka is having a brilliant season and he has become a key player for us. BUT he does still have the odd game where he is quiet and not involved as much. When they play, pretty much everything Arsenal & Utd do, involve Fabregas & Rooney. You will always notice Rooney in a match, even if he isn't playing well, whereas Anelka has the odd game which passes him by.

But that said, both Anelka & Drogba should be in with a shout.

I actually think Rooney is a worthy candidate, no doubt...fabregas on the other hand...when arse play well, he is instrumental, but I don't think he's been outstanding this season...he looks great against lesser teams, bit like the arse in general, but his anonymous performance against us in november is one example of how the game 'can pass him by' too

The player of the season cannot be decided or debated fairly in January. It's like considering MOTM at half time, you dont decide until the end, or else you may end up with egg on your face.

Dont be suprised to see Drogba top of most peoples list come May. Its not about scoring 4 against Hull, or ripping apart a Bolton team twice in a few days..

I agree that he really hasnt done it against title rivals (I should bite my tounge, season isnt over) but as far as performing under pressure its hard to think of a better response than that Villa game. On for 20 minutes, off before the end, and scored 2 goals to salt the game.

I kind of agree that between Ronaldo/Tevez going, and Robin Van Persie spending all his time at the horse doctor, Rooney and Fabregas have basically had to do it all this year. But I also think Jaime Carragher is a stuttering halfwit, so I am torn in this opinion

where was fabregas against stoke yesterday?

He still had a fairly decent game from what I saw to be honest.

Don't want to stick up for a gooner as I'd like to see a Chelsea player get player of the season EVERY SEASON, but going by your question, you could argue no Chelsea player should get it because we lost 3-1 to Wigan - a day No-one turned up.

this only proves that we have a better all round team/squad. It has little relevence to the individual player.

The way he has played this season, I think Essien should be in there as well. He has reminded me of Maka at his peak this season. So consistent and yet low-key that people tend to take him and what he brings to the party for granted.

The fact that he's gonna be missing for some of the big match-ups now may make us all realise how vitally important he is to us.

Just noticed this from the Man Utd v Hull game:

Wayne Rooney gives away a free kick for an unfair challenge on Stephen Hunt.

He got booked for it - hopefully Hunt felt a lot of pain.

Reason enough to give the award to Rooney now I think :)

Not necessarly, how many goals did Drogbs score vs. Sunderland? Preston? Watford? Okay, he wasn't even on the continent, but we did score a hell of a lot of goals with him over in Angola, he scored a bundle for us, but we've never had to really rely on him as such.

After the Preston match, ITV were drooling over Anelka, so maybe he's not out of the race quite yet...

Our early season form was quite awful and Drogba was the one who bailed us out on more occasions than one. Anelka has been playing really well of late and hasn't let us miss Drogba this month. Both should be in contention head and shoulders with Rooney and Fabergas.
