Manchester United striker receives award for the first time -

Wayne Rooney has been named Barclays Player of the Season for 2009/10, after a prolific campaign in which his goals and inspirational form have been one of the main reasons United maintained their Barclays Premier League title challenge until the final game of the season.

The England forward notched 26 goals in just 32 Barclays Premier League appearances, easily surpassing his previous best tally of 16 goals in the 2005/06 season.


Rooney has found the best form of his career this season, filling the void left by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from Old Trafford last summer. Memorable individual performances have included scoring all four goals in a 4-0 win over Hull City, and claiming his 100th Barclays Premier League career goal in a 3-1 victory at Arsenal.

This is the first time that the Manchester United striker has been named Barclays Player of the Season, and is the latest award in a growing list of accolades which also includes this season's Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association Player of the Year awards.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

* Rooney made his United debut on the 28th September 2004, scoring a hat-trick in a 6-2 Champions League win over Turkish side Fenerbache

Bull*****e. Drogba deserved it much more. Media darling and he's English, that's the only reason HE got it. You must be mad if you deny that. But since he got it, Congratulations Mr.Rooney.

Chelsea striker denied award again, though he deserved it more than the Media's poster boy (Stats prove it)-

Didier Drogba has not named Barclays Player of the Season for 2009/10, after a prolific campaign in which his goals and inspirational form have been one of the main reasons Chelsea won the Barclays Premier League title.

The Ivory Coast forward notched 29 goals in just 32 Barclays Premier League appearances, easily surpassing his previous best tally of 27 goals in the 2006/07 season. He also won the Golden boot for the season, but was denied the award because he is Black and not English. Oh and also becayse he plays for Chelsea.

(This is the Chelsea version of it)

You forgot his 14 assists, LLB. That's an incredible 36+14= 50 goals that he's directly contributed. How does that figure against the Poster boy's??

Plus, can't think of the countless occasions in which he's tracked back and helped magnificently in defence. *YAWN* I should've known.

JT, stop throwing your toys out of the pram! Not like we decided to give it to him. We are gracious enough to accept that you gusy deserve the championship but if you expect to us to bend over and accept that Drogba is better and Roo doesn't deserve the accolades you are being delusional. He is our player and we love him to bits!! Oh and at this day and age, Xenophobia is not even an issue, so don't start this racist line, it doesn't matter to anyone that he is black, you're just being silly. Drogba may have deserved it but people don't always get what they deserve so deal with it!
