Agree with all this. I was getting carried away Wednesday night and saying future England captain. And now sober I still think it. Ollie Watkins will captain England. You heard it here first (unless you were with me on Wednesday and remember anything said after 3-0). Like a younger much cleverer version of Harry Kane with a better shot on him. What a player. Never thought we'd be over Neal Maupay so quickly.

:owusu:

Give him 6 months in the Prem, if he can handle it there I can certainly see an England call up

Has to be Rico for me. The way he has progressed after those injury setbacks has been truly impressive.

I think there are equal arguments for Watkins, Nørgaard and Benrahma really.

About half a dozen others come close.

Ollie. Adapting to a new position and becoming the best striker outside the top half of the Premier League. Incredible.

So hard but for me between Watkins and Norgaard,going for Watkins as I don’t think we’ve got anyone who could do his job in the team we’ve got other players who could play norgaards role admittedly not as well.

With the exception of his first few games Norgaard has been outstanding and gets my vote

Its impossible to pick. So many immense contributions. What a nice dilemma to have.

When I think back to Jo Kuffour and precious little else seasons in days gone by.

I think outsiders would find it amazing that we're not all going straight for Said, the £35 million man.

This is one of the hardest PoY for a long time, if not ever.

For me it's Watkins, and the Swansea second leg epitomised this, not just his goal, but as I mentioned in the reports thread for that game the minute where he chased down Bidwell, and then won a free kick up the other end of the pitch.

Between Ollie and Christian for me. Ollie shades it for me because he has effectively been playing in a new position this season and was 2nd top scorer in the League for the normal season. He has also led the line exceedingly well, works his socks off and enables us to defend from the front. Christian a very close 2nd as he's been what we've been missing for years in centre midfield.

Lots of others follow not far behind!

For me, it needs to be a player who made more of a difference to the success of the team than the previous season.

I would therefore go for Pontus.

have to say, astonishing Pinnock and Jansson only getting 10 votes between them out of 136 so far, considering our good our defensive record has been this season (both on its own, and compared to previous seasons). Goes to show how great we've looked on all areas of pitch.

Agree with many on here that the team perform better with Norgaard in the team.
Obviously no one can overlook Ollie for his goals and work rate.
Rico has been brilliant all season too ..then again I cant name one who hasn't.
But if I have to pick one it has to be Pontus if he had played the whole season I have zero doubt we would have been top 2 he is an absolute snip at the price we paid true leader in every sense of the word

Lots of recency bias in the votes in my opinion! Well, at least with regards to Norgaard anyway who took a bit of time to settle in the first part of the season. Watkins by a distance for me; with a very honourable mention to Rico Henry.

Mods feel free to nip this thread in the bud. But seriously this season a tough one to call.

The BMW are obvious candidates

Norgaard for being a midfield beast

Pinnock or Jansen. The perfect pairing both boasting fantastic seasons in their own ways

Rico. Injury free but showing us what a player he is. Best tackle of the season too (feck off Cooper)

Lastly Raya. Perhaps the best keeper we've had in recent times

My vote is Norgaard

Apparently not!

Very difficult choice but opted for Norgaard in the end simply because he is 8/10 every week

Tough call.

2 players come to the top.

Watkins for his very visible work in scoring goals, his great attitude, plus his sheer effort up and down the pitch.

Norgaard for so much, but often unnoticed, skill and work in winning the ball in midfield, breaking up the opposition,and getting us back into attack, plus his sheer effort up and down the pitch.

They both deserve the award, but Norgaard gets my vote for sticking to his somewhat unglamorous role of being our midfield speed bump, disrupting any fast attacks from whichever team was trying to get past him.

Great passer of the ball, and will probably become more of a midfield general next season.

If a team finishes third in a league, it would be strange that the best player that season was a goalkeeper.

True but De Gea has been player of season a few times at man u

Yes but I can think of a season where the player of the season scored 20 odd goals but we went down. It never as black and white as it seems

Not sure what your trying to say, is it not possible a keeper could be player of the year for his team? whether or not they finish 1st, 3rd or even 10th.
