Gareth Bale wins the Player of February 2010 to February 2011 award
Who sponsors these awards again?
Congratulations to Gareth Bale on winning the PFA Player of the Year award. The Spoiler had been sceptical of the Welshman’s credentials for winning the award but, having sat in a dark corner and thought it through, we’ve decided that it’s just about fair enough.
Going from when the players voted last season to the time they stuck their grubby paw print on the form this year, Bale has been pretty bloody good. He was excellent at the end of last season and was a huge contributor to Spurs getting into the Champions League at the end of last term – not to mention his European form this season. League-wise this season – meh.
Jack Wilshere is thoroughly deserving of the young player gong and it’s hard to argue with his fellow players on this one. HOWEVER! We’re going to give it a go…
While we think Bale and Wilshere’s victories are not too wide of the mark, The Spoiler’s winners – or the REAL winners as some are calling them – are…
Player of the Year - Scott Parker (West Ham United)
Young Player of the Year – Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur)
Parker has been brilliant for a good 12 months and is the single biggest reason that West Ham still have a chance of staying in the Premier League. As Bale himself said:
“Playing in a good team with good players definitely helped me a lot and all the boys have been fantastic.”
Parker has been a lone beacon of brilliance in West Ham’s season and because of that, he gets the nod. Bale gets the whippersnapper award because of the reasons what we wrote down in the second paragraph.
Disagree? We know you do – sorry – put us in our place below…
