Ronaldo Will Be Player Of The Year

Ronaldo Will Be Player Of The Year

Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Francesc Fabregas, Steven Gerrard and Didier Drogba are this year's nominees for the Player of the Year award.

Surprise surprise: Ronaldo is on the list. Will he win it? Well, if the award goes anywhere else, that will be a greater shock than Wimbledon's FA Cup win over Liverpool in 1988.

Didier Drogba's been suffering a dip in form in recent weeks and he scored only two more goals than Ronaldo - and the Ivorian is an out-and-out striker, unlike our favourite winking winger.

To be honest, I feel the other four are only there to make up the numbers. Steven Gerrard's performances have been below par this season - at least according to all Liverpool fans I spoke to. Jamie Carragher would have been a worthy candidate instead of him. Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes have been fantastic this season but they are dwarfed by Ronaldo, to be honest.

John Terry has already revealed that he had voted for Ronaldo and I expect the vast majority to do so.


He could even take the Young Player of the Year award: Fabregas, Aaron Lennon, Micah Richards and Kevin Doyle are all in the running, as well as Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney who could achieve a hat-trick of awards.

He will win and I don't think it will be a shock for anyone...

I would also suggest he will be crowned world player of the year when that trophy is handed out.

As much as I don't like you lot, I do have a grudging respect for you, the same as I do Liverpool. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't! Ronaldo would definately win my vote for player of the season and in all honesty you guys have played some great football this season too. Unlike the Thames Sticklebrickski sewage plant that is polluting the air of the unfortunate residents of Fulham right now. We're due a win against them, and it's all set up for them to lose at the Emirates to hand you lot the Premiership this season. No other team seems to ruin a party like we do as yourselves and Liverpool have found out over the last two decades. Though rest assured I'm sure that we'll go easy on Ashley Cole if we were to be responsible for them losing their Premiership crown 8-)

He should receive young player of the year as a fan I would say Fabregas speaking honestly Ronaldo. As for Player of the year I would have to look at Drogba's previous matches but for Ronaldo to be close to Drogba's goal record is something as he isn't a pure striker. Both players help their team more than scoring goals though so it is hard for me to say.

i got to say, if i had a choice to watch manu or chelski right now it would be united as they play the more attractive football and ronaldo is a player i like to watch.

ronaldo has so many assists to go with those goals aswell so he has to win it. he should also win the young player award too.

Some people argue that Drogba sometimes carried Chelsea on his back while Ronaldo was always aided by team-mates in good form - and they have a point, I think. But I still believe it will be Ronaldo.
