    Repost as Ed’s on fire:

    Does anyone remember Shearer’s challenge on Lennon that Barton was on about? Is he right? Apparently in ten worst fouls list of ESPN.

    Player of season? First part, Ba, second Cisse

    When is a thug a hero (e.g. Rooney, Keane, Vinny Jones) and when just a thug?

    @Cyprus – when they lead under pressure? Keane and Jones were thugs, but when the pressure was on they led by example, but themselves on the line for theyre team etc, barton on the other hand, when the pressure is on cracks! He bottled our relegation run in by getting sent off at liverpool needlessly and he nearly cost QPR survival yesterday! The difference is, under pressure to win, you’d want a keane, or a jones, or even a rooney now hes matured, but if we went into a game absolutely needing to win, i wouldnt have barton anywhere near the starting 11!

    Colo for me.

    Whe he played poorly i.e. Spurs (A) Wigan (A) Fulham (A) Everton (A) we have been awful.

    player of the season – for me it’s Tim Krul, closely followed by Collo! Theyre the only 2 players that went throughout the whole season without a dip in form!
    Young Player of the season – Santon
    Most improved player – James Perch
    Most exciting – Ben Arfa
    Goal of the season – ……. can’t actually bring myself to choose!

    I believe we’ll see 6 come in and 3 leave.

    I haven’t got a clue who will come in but I reckon we’ll see Simmo, Best and Ba leave…

    Only reason I think Willo will stay is that I don’t think he’s the sort to bang on Pards door when he’s not playing much – and he wont be because we will DEFINITELY sign a new CB and we will need 4.

    I could even see Jonas leaving if we get an offer around 5million and to be honest, I’m ok with that.

    I can see us going to a 451 / 433 next season.
    Tiote – Cabaye – ?
    HBA/Ober – Cisse – Marv/?

    I just really hope we bring in a right back, left back, centre back, 2 x centre mids and a new winger/attacker

    Ba first half, Cisse second but overall has to be between Cabaye, Krul and Colo for me vote went to Cabs though as it was his first season

    literally can’t wait for next season! New signings to shore up the back! A fit steven taylor! a more experienced santon and krul! Ben arfa and Marveaux getting a full pre season and a FULL season from cisse! I dare not imagine where we would have finished if taylor hadnt hv been injured, if cisse had signed in august and if benny had been upto speed before january!

    WOW, Ed, so many choices!!

    Most improved player has to be Perchino

    Most consistent player – Colo, without a doubt

    Player making the greatest impact has to be HBA – his comeback from injury, his learning what Pardeau wants from him. His work rate, coupled with his amazing skills has been awesome.

    Player who has grasped his chance with both hands – Tim Krull – one of the best young keepers in the League

    Player who has proved to be everything we thought he could be, and then some – Cabaye.

    Team player, who made it all happen – Alan Pardeau

    would anyone take Hugo Rodallega on a free transfer in the summer>? his contracts up, only 26 still, would be an improvement as a squad player to best, ranger, lovenkrands!

    Have voted for Ben Arfa, i have witnessed the 2 greatest goals ever scored by a toon player this year, both by the same player, although i think the lad should offer for the ball more and get more involved in the game he is undoubtably our greatest talent.

    Of all the players at the club currently i wud be most disappointed if this lad left. Love his skills.

    I actually believe his impact on our points tally is as great as any others, and he only played half a season, respect to all the lads who have been rocks though, Krul, Collo, Cabaye, have been the spine most the year to be fair. little mention to Guthrie as well who has put in some super performances.

    Went for Cabs ! Was a really tough one as Colo has been outstanding at the back and made the PFA team of the year…our Senegalese soldiers up top have really done to business for us this year, Tiote was been outstanding and really made a difference, santoooon is a geordie legend in the making. But on pure effort, passion, commitment to the cause and the odd great goal…it’s dreamboat for me.

    Has to be colo 4 me , the guys a absoulute life saver, wed be f**ked without him, essential! weve been able to get away with loseing other top players but when the few games we dont have him we look so nervy, hes a touch of class at the back,great on the ground ,reads the game so well, makes rooney look sh**e, now we just need a world class or near world class big CB whos class in the air to compliment him a relieve some of the pressure of him, if we get that and a LB and move santon to thje right wel be sorted and loveing life!

    It’s hard to say who my player of the season was. Every single one of those lads gave 110% and im delighted where we’ve ended up. This year has been full of “what if’s”. What if…. Cisse had signed earlier, ben arfa had played the full season, tiote/ba etc had missed the ACoN, Saylor had been fit.

    This is where we need to prepare for these “what if..” moments. I.E. Making sure we have the depth to cope for missing/out of form players.

    Next season will be epic if we can keep the current crop of players and build on the squad we have. I’d like to see Simpson and Guthrie stay, but they are easily replacable with simillar or better quility players. They may have forgotten that. Enrique certainly did!!

    give over indian man! Shola played his part this season! Important goals against spurs and sunderland! Also, in march n april, he was massive coming off the bench, holding onto the ball and seeing games out! Every player played theyre part this season, shola included!

    Is Indian Magpie for real??

    It’s been a monumental effort by everyone!! Teams dont get into the top 5, let alone the prem, based on the performances of 3-4 players!!

    Have a word!!

    Comment #26

    @indian – yeah i agree there! Krul and collo for me where a mile ahead of any other players! Special mention for cabaye for a great first season though, I think with a break and a seasons experience, he’ll be our top performer next year in the engine room!

    Shola got 3% with 0 votes 🙂 bug

    Krul for me, Cissé second than Demba Ba, Ben Arfa, than Colo. Top 5, as the team is top 5 too 😉

    @Indian, Not saying he’s player of the season, but he deserves a hell of a lot more credit than you’re giving him.

    Comment #31

    Has the season finished already? 🙂

    Had to go Krul, although Collo was an obvious close second. All players have overall had great seasons and Collo has only had a couple of shockers. For me, Krul rarely put a foot wrong (or hand) all season and for a young guy has taken the league by storm.

    Indian…Sure Shola isn’t going to be voted best player of the season, be a bit rude to not have him on the list though, no?

    And who voted S Taylor? Love him, but come on, he didn’t make half the season 🙂

    A guy from the RSPCA knocked on my door this morning.

    He said, “We’ve had a complaint that you’ve been overfeeding your cat. Apparently it weighs the best part of 4 stone.”

    I said, “It’s not a cat.”

    “Oh” he replied, “There must be a mistake, is it a dog?”

    I said, “No, it’s a hamster.”

    Every one of those lads who have put on the Shirt deserves the upmost credit and, for you to single out Shola, for critisim shows a little bit of disrespect for this club.

    I’m aware that Shola, Best, Williamson etc have had bad games, but they have all had their moments which have won us points.

    All pieces of the big picture, all done a job, all deserve 100% credit.
