The Professional Footballer’s Association have drawn up 6 man list of Barclays Premiership Players that they feel fulfill the Award’s remit.
The nominated players are: Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Robin Van Persie (Arsenal), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Sergio Agüero, Joe Hart and David Silva (all Manchester City).
Scott Parker’s stock has done nothing but soar of late. Football Writers Player of the Year last season a given his promotion to Captain of the England squad he has got to be a front runner for the PFA Award.
Wayne Rooney’s season was a slow build and now he’s demonstrating much of the maturity that was hoped for for some time. Wazza has bridged the gap between the seniors and the new blood with some aplomb. With over thirty goals to the good he has made himself what he always ought to have been, un-droppable.
Van Persie of course has drawn accusations of being a one man team. That problem is of course not his. He can’t help being a bit brilliant. Some spectacular goals that have kept an occasionally ‘shaky’ Arsenal side not just buoyant but bursting up the Premier League, overtaking a Tottenham side who threw away a ten point lead.
You build a football team from the back to the front. Joe Hart has been without question one of the most outstandingly reliable Premiership goalkeepers this season. I know this because only the Swansea keeper, Vorm has more points! But seriously, Hart’s form is a boon to whoever is managing England this summer.
Sergio Agüero really is what being a striker valued at thirty eight million pounds is all about. You pay your money and he does the job. Twenty eight goals to the good and showing no signs of insanity, no golf breaks just goals and assists. An out and out success story.
David Silva then. It makes me laugh when players like Luka Modric are linked with transfer deals and the money bandied about is supposedly up to forty million pounds. This guy quietly gets on with the job and actually justifies such speculation.
