    Carrick is the player of the year for me. Bale to get the young player award.

  2. Gotta Hate Tiny Tear says:

    Its not secret that I fricking Love Carrick

    But WHere In The Blue Cheese Fuck Is Rafa Da Silva?

  3. roboo7 says:

    Cant see danny winning it between benteke and lukaku in my eyes but bale will probs win it. Rvp and suarez to battle it out.

  4. Costas says:

    I’d vote for Carrick for being the most consistent player throughout the season. But sadly, Bale will win this.

    I agree with GHTT. No Rafa is a disgrace.

  5. wayne says:

    personally think Hazard will piss young player of the year and if i’m not mistaken aren’t these votes done by December which would make RVP the big favorite.Bale had that run of 9 or 10 games Feb/March time which is his usual mo,shines for about a 1/3 rd of the season

  6. Ruudboy says:

    Gutted that Rafael is not on that Young player award.

  7. Yashwant says:

    But just where is Rafael??

  8. LT3313 says:

    <3 Carrick, long overdue

  9. Costas says:

    And exactly why the hell is Wilshere nominated?

  10. Frankie says:

    Carrick to win if there is any justice

  11. bengoshi says:


    No City players on the list!

    And they say City players have more class…

    It’s just so pleasing!

    How I wish Carrick to win!

    But I bet Gareth Bale will win it…

    Not the racist, it’s for sure.

  12. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    I am SOO HAPPY Carrick is nominated. People have FINALLY recognized him after several seasons of doing the SAME THINGS he’s been doing this year.

    I’m pretty happy welbeck is nominated but If I wanted to pick someone for Young player of the year from out team, it would be either De Gea or Rafael. (Young player is 23 and Under right?)

  13. WeAreUnited says:

    when SAF says that after the treble of 99 we won and then someone else won it instead of one of our treble winning team, he said from there on he never followed who won it.


    I will also no care who wins it, because when Nani deserved it, he did not win it. when 99 treble winning team and no-one won it, I DONT CARE!

    if it’s an United player so be it, otherwise, it’ biased.

  14. WeAreUnited says:


    I am in a hurry


  15. King Eric says:

    Fucking criminal that Rafael not on the list yet that little fag Hazard is.

  16. King Eric says:

    Costas – Hello mate, you well? I know tell me about it. Wilshire has mustered up about 6 games!

  17. King Eric says:

    Anyway fuck the personal awards as Fergie said after the absolute travesty of 99 when that fucking ponce Ginola won it instead of Keano who had led his side to a treble.

  18. King Eric says:

    WeAreUnited- Ha sorry mate just read your comment on the 99 thing and Ginola winning it,.

  19. Marq says:

    Hazard in the list is fine. But Wilshere? He was out for half a season and has done nothing of note since coming back, and he gets nominated? What a joke.

    And as much as we love Welbeck, he hasn’t really done anything much to warrant the nomination ahead of Rafael

    I think Bale will win, and Benteke / Hazard to win the young player

  20. Costas says:

    @King Eric

    Hi mate. I am trying to be. Busy period as always. How are you? The Wilshere nomination is all about his country of origin in my opinion. Not playing the race card, but what other possible explanation could there be? It’s not just Rafa. Look at De Gea. Heck look at Nastasic. All of them had better campaigns than Wilshere.

  21. Saad says:

    City players need a raise.

  22. 2Coats of RED says:

    If Carrick doesn’t win it would be a Fucking shame…someone in Spain once said ‘tell what central midfielder you have and I’ll tell you what kind of team you are’. That about sums it up for me. Without his performances all year, we wouldn’t be in the position we find ourselves.

    Hard To Believe He’s Not Scholes!!

  23. King Eric says:

    Costas. Good thanks mate. Tom growing up so fast. Yeah agree pal. Zabaletta should be in the list too.

  24. Stretfordend ryda says:

    Can’t think of a better keeper then David de Gea this season! Where’s be on the list? Best keeper in the prem

  25. elatlista says:

    SAF’s stuborness on keeping Welbeck on the pitch ahead of Chicha paid off.

  26. elatlista says:

    SAF’s stuborness on keeping Welbeck on the pitch ahead of Chicha paid off.

  27. BerbaGod says:

    Think a few other players could have been on the list, Michu for example and definitely agree with King Eric that Zabaleta should be on that list too. Hazard has been good for last two months and I guess that coincides with when the voting takes place. Wilshere being on that list is an absolute joke, he’s been injured for half of the season!!

    Also with regards to the Young Player of the Year, surely Bale at 23 is too old ?! For me, it should be players 21 and under.
