PFA Young Player Of The Year 2011

Samir Nasri

Started the season off flying, with the absence of Cesc he shone. But with injuries and Arsenal’s slump in form he faded, but still has had his best season at Arsenal scoring 9 goals.


Javier Hernandez


The little man from Mexico has had a great first season in England. He is a goal poacher who comes alive in the box. Similar to another United great Solskjaer is he carries on he can turn out to be even better.


Nani


Has had his best season at Old Trafford with 9 goals he is now showing the player he can be and why Fergie invested in him. His improvement co-insides with the departure of Ronaldo.

Jack Wilshere


He started the season as one of the Arsenal kids for the future, but now is a first team regular and an England starter. No player has grown more than Wilshere this season, who has held his own against some of the best midfielders across Europe this year.

Seamus Coleman


The young Irishman has been a key part to the Everton set up this season and is now getting recognised for his work. Others at Goodison may get the tabloid inches but he has a big future ahead of him.


Joe Hart

England and Manchester City’s number one has been consistent all season and there’s no sign of him giving up either jersey any time soon.


Gareth Bale


Has had a great season his hat-trick at the San Siro was a definite highlight, bagging 7 goals this season. He has tormented right backs all year. He would have done a lot more but the young Welshman still picks up a lot of injuries which could hinder him in the long run.


My pick would be Gareth Bale at Tottenham

PFA Player Of The Year 2011

Charlie Adam

The man from Scotland has been the star for Blackpool this season, with an impressive 9 goals so far. He is the talisman for the Sea-siders and deserved the January attention he got and will probably get his move at the end of the season.


Gareth Bale


Has had a great season his hat-trick at the San Siro was a definite highlight, bagging 7 goals this season. He has tormented right backs all year. He would have done a lot more but the young Welshman still picks up a lot of injuries which could hinder him in the long run.


Carlos Tevez


The best player at City by far this season, even though he did ask for a transfer in January he still has gone on to score 19 this season. City are a much better team with him in it, his hard work and never says die attitude.


Scott Parker


For a player whose team have been near the bottom all season he can come out with a lot of credit. Parker gets up and down the pitch every game and gives it his all. He deserved his place in the England team, deserves to be nominated for this award and deserves to be at a better club


Nemanja Vidic


Another solid season from the Serb, gives 100% every time he wears a United shirt. He sometimes goes over the top but the United fans love him. He is probably the best centre back in England and is well worth this nomination.


Samir Nasri


Started the season off flying, with the absence of Cesc he shone. But with injuries and Arsenal’s slump in form he faded, but still has had his best season at Arsenal scoring 9 goals.


My Winner would be Scott Parker at West Ham

Champions League!!!

A footballing lesson was taught last night at the Bernabeu stadium last night, as Tottenham were well and truly beaten and are basically out of the Champions League. It was bad from start to end really as Aaron Lennon was taken ill minutes before the kick off which blew their game plan out the window. Then going 1-0 down to an ex Arsenal player wouldn’t have gone down well with the Spurs fans. But they were then let down by one of their most experienced and reliable players in Crouch. Two silly fouls equals two yellows which as we know is a red. From then on Madrid controlled the game and it was a matter of how many. Ronaldo move into the middle, Marcelo boomed down the left wing and Adebayor had his best game in a Madrid shirt. It will be a impossible task to come back from 4-0 down, even more with a Mourinho side, he won’t park the bus, a Real Madrid never do but he is more than capable of putting out a team to see out this tie.

In the other game Inter Milan were also given a beating by a Schalke side that are 10th in the Bundesliga. Three second half goals have basically put them in the semi-finals for the first time in their history. Inter did score probably the goal of the campaign:


But it will be very hard for the holders to make it through. Tonight’s game between Chelsea and Manchester United will be a tight affair. United lost on their last visit to the Bridge, but this time it looks like Ferdinand will play and Rooney will look to make more headlines. I can see United scoring, but Chelsea wining the game. My prediction is 2-1. In the other game Barcelona play Shakhtar I can’t see anything more than a home win I’m going for 3-0.
