Manchester United are now taking votes from supporters for the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award. There are certainly many suitable contenders worthy of such an honor for their contributions in the Premier League title race.
This season has been unusual as no one player truly stands out from the rest. It is fair to say that 2011-12 has been a genuine squad effort, many players contributing significantly to the cause.
Just narrowing all the candidates down to a short list is a daunting task, let alone attempting to select a winner. Nevertheless, there are seven players who stand out just by the slimmest of margins.
When seeking the insight of United supporters around the globe, these seven players were frequently highlighted as the star performers this season. Even then, there appeared to be no clear favorite in the discussion.
While each of these seven players have proven valuable assets in the title race, it would be hard to argue that any of the contenders has consistently been the star of the team this season. These players seemed to standout in phases, making the decision even more difficult for supporters.
Of these seven highly qualified contenders, which do you believe deserves the honor of being named the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year?
