Player of the season

Recommended Posts

This is gonna be an interesting one I believe this year. We have only started playing this "unseen" football since the turn of the year and players such as Sidibe and Essandoah cannot surely be considered for player of the season. Therefore we really have to consider the players who have played most of the season since before the turn of the year. In that case my top five (in no order) would be as follows:

Paul Wilkerson

Chris Moore

Andrew Drury

Steve Perkins

Steve McKimm

 

If I really had to nail it down to a final three it would be 1.Moore, 2.Drury, 3.Perkins (in that order). McKimm did not impress me at all at the begining of the season and Wilkerson is only just shaded into fourth.

I think Macca may have been a bit in awe of his new position as captain initially, not to mention having the stuffing knocked out of him with that long and particularly nasty illness. It was amazing he was back at all. He's now grown into it and to be frank, can't think of anyone else who could have come close to him as skipper. Top man.

 

Player of the year? Wilko has saved us from some drubbings in the past and it wasn't him between the sticks during our poor start, so.......but then Mooro has been immense, and could probably be our top scorer, so.........but then there's.......oh, decisions, decisions.

There can only be 1 choice really.

 

He was a new signing during the season, will hopefully be a permanent fixture, he has turned our season around and from what I've seen of him , not put a foot wrong. Just look at the run we have had since he made his first appearance. He's a big lad, looks a handful, admitably loses his head sometimes , but he is a real crowd pleaser, the like of which we have not had before at Stonebridge Road.

Moore should walk it by a mile... that's not a criticism of any other players, just that he's been simply outstanding and consistent, not to mention all the goals he's scored on top of that.

1.Chris Moore

2.Andy Drury

3.Ben Walshe

 

Moore has been fantastic at the back, and it's been noticable that since he came in to the squad the defence has been secure. No doubts about that one.

Andy Drury has been great in midfield, showing us good skill all season long, proving the critics who said that he was useless wrong. I agree that he struggled at the start of the season, but once he found a regular place in the team he gained so much confidence, and showed us what he can really do.

 

My third place would go to Ben Walshe, as even though he has been out injured, when he played before the injury he wouldn't let anyone or anything stand in his way down the left. Even when he was injured, he still came and supported the rest of the team as well. I saw him on quite a few occasions.

1. Moore

2. Skinner

3. Drury

 

think skins has had his best season for us. last yr he was pulled apart but this year has tightened up and looked a class act. Wilkos not been as good as last yr.

1)Moore

2)Skinner

3)Perkins

 

Other late comers like Roy are worthy of mention as are the in/out lot like Matt Lee and Pinns who have never let us down.

I'm disappointed no-one's mentioned Rob Owen yet - he looked our best player when we were going through our rough spell at the start of the season, and so should be in contention.

 

Having said that I'd still go for Mooro grin.gif

I totally agree Chris Moore has probabaly been the player of the season. However I think 2nd, 3rd etc. choices are more difficult. Personally I would put Macca 2nd because apart from a few silly bookings has really led by example and shown total commitment throughout the whole season. As for 3rd I think I'd vote for Skins 'cos I think he's added another level of solidity to the defence and has made a really big improvement on the disciplinary side which has made a big difference to his own performance and that of the team.

 

But I do think the differences between Macca and Skins and other members of the squad are almost negligible and so my choice in no way detracts from the performances of the other players mentioned in this thread.

What I meant was the fact that he travelled down from North London every week to support us, and to be honest, he didn't really have to. Still sticking with top 3 in that order. Might look a bit biased if i put any one else top!!!!!

so........

1.Chris Moore

2.Andy Drury

3.Ben Walshe

 

p.s. does anyone else think that Ben Walshe will sign for us at the end of the season. I've heard that his contract at QPR is up, and that he doesn't see a future for himself there.

I wouldnt be at all shocked if Rob Owen left at the end of the season. He's been a great servant for the club but he only has one gear in terms of pace and while others have come into the team over the last few months he has been the one to me who has stood out as not being good enough.

I think you'll find Mr Ford has all his players turn up if they are fit or not. Mostly they can be found lurking near the tunnel.

On this subject, you can vote for your player of the year at the Farnborough game. I will be at the gate, with voting slips, also available on the stand side of the ground, at half time at the away travel hut and in the bar at the end of the match.

 

Will keep my fav to myself, but anyone who attended the shirt auction, and can remember which shirt I paid loads of cash for, should have some idea who it is.

 

 

Agree with Fleet Babe, we should try and keep Ben, I am sure he would love to join the club.

No No No We have to keep Rob Owen, and I've been disappointed he hasn't been put under contract for next season. Anybody that saw the Woking game can see that he can be a creative player, and he's very good defensively. Maybe he does lack a bit of pace, but the same can be said of Chris Moore, my Player of The Year, although with the defence tightening up all round over the last few games it hasn't been so noticeable.

We must keep Owen!!

Everyone player we have seems to have something different to offer the team, which is just what you want. Sometimes you need a defensive midfield which would favour the likes of Rob Owen but a weak opposing defence would call for Lightning Moussa! And so on. Lets face it, you don't go to war with only one weapon.

Brillantly put!! Feel he's somewhat unlucky to have been left out recently, but it just shows
the strength of the midfield.
