English Premier League in 2008: The Footy Awards

Chris PotterCorrespondent IDecember 24, 2008

We have our Premier League back.

A new order is nigh.

Never has the league table looked so intriguing at Christmas. Never has the league been so unpredictable.

Hull scoring three at Old Trafford? Chelsea winning eight on the spin away from home? Man City on the brink of a crisis?

Nobody could have written this script and it is unlikely that even Nostradamus would be saying "I told you so" in five months' time.

So much has happened in 2008, and I want to know your highs and lows. Are you an ecstatic Villain or a blue Baggy, flying high in Hull or ranting and raving about Rafa?

There are 10 awards up for grabs. Who deserves all the praise? Who has had an anno horribilis? Here are my choices. Now it's your turn:


Player of the Year: Ashley Young

Team of the Year: Hull City

Manager of the Year: Phil Brown
