PFA Player's Player of the Year Nominations Announced

sayonara sammyCorrespondent IOctober 17, 2016

So folks here it is. The shortlist for the PFA Player's Player of the Year award and yes, you guessed it, it includes Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, and Emmanuel Adebayor.

But the big surprise for me is the nomination for 37-year-old Portsmouth goalkeeper David James.

Yes, the man known as Calamity James for the majority of his time at Liverpool has picked up a nomination for breaking back into the England team.  The list is rounded off nicely by Cesc Fabregas and Steven Gerrard.

For what it's worth my top three are:

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo: You've got to hand it to him. The guy is a goal machine. Even the die-hard ABU fans can't deny it.
  2. Fernando Torres: He deserves something for a fantastic debut season but Ronaldo will make sure that he is the bridesmaid this time round. Any other season in any other league, he'd win hands down.
  3. Cesc Fabregas: The best player in the league in the first three months of the season he was responsible largely for Arsenal's early form. Unfortunately, he seems to be fading a little come the business end of the season. 

So who do you think will win? And who's going to win the young player of the year?

Will Ronaldo seal another double or will Micah Richards of Man City be a bit of a smokey?

Have your say.
