The 2007/8 Player of the Season game


Recommended Posts

The Liverpool Supporters’ Player of the Season game.


Hello everyone.


Some of you may know me. I am a visitor to quite a few LFC sites and have been the custodian of the player of the season game for 3 years now. The game has spanned 4 different sites in its time although last year the main voters came from Est1892, 6CM and YNWA. I am hoping that more voters from other sites will give a more accurate picture of our feelings as Liverpool supporters.


I am hoping that you will play a part in this 4th year to enable us to get a picture of our players’ performances and to crown a worthy winner come May 2008.


In 2005, Jamie Carragher won the prize. In 2006 it was Steven Gerrard. The 2007 winner was Dirk Kuyt.


Many people felt that last year’s winner should have been Steve Finnan or José Reina, and I admit to having some sympathy with this, but the votes were cast and the outcome was fair.


This year, the format will be different. Instead of voting for a single player as your Man of the match, you vote for your top 3. This enables a “steady Eddie” like Finnan to get his mentions and gain some points. (I did think about a top 5 list, but can foresee problems when the result goes against us…getting people to vote for 1 player is hard enough!)


Anyway, we shall see how the format goes. Points are the same as last year, top player gets 5 points, second player gets 3 and third player gets a single point.


All competitive games are counted, CC, FA, CLQs, CL and league matches.


I shall post current league tables so that we can follow the players’ performances throughout the season.


Hopefully, the table will put an end to the “Pennant is s****” type of arguments.


If a moderator could ensure a sticky when I post a Man of the Match thread, I would be grateful…also it would be nice if I could have a sticky league table thread for the game throughout the season.


Thanks for your support in this.
