http://www.football-league.co.uk/latestnews/20120314/league-managers-vote-for-players-of-the-year_2293301_2658600

Just goes to show how little recognition defenders get!! Ridiculous list in some respects.

    defenders never get any recognition when they do well and when mistakes are made they are the ones who always get the blame

    did they just get bored after the top 7?

    I would be interested to know who Powell voted for, and if we go up does he have any plans on signing any of those players...

    Surprised Solly didn't get in there.. similarly, a little bit surprised that Bradley Wright Phillips got in there at 6; not saying he's not a superb player, but you would've expected the goal drought to have had an effect on his rating. That said, despite what the negative nancies say - I think he works his ass off.

    No surprises with the top 3 though, some good recognition for Johnnie.

    The problem for defenders, is that good defences are generally down to teamwork and coaching, whereas strikers and goalscorers can stand out individually. Assuming the vote was a while ago, I'm surprised that one of Wiggins or Morrison didn't feature, Tomkins of West Ham was 5th in the Championship so must have stood out!

    NB no Wednesday players...

    Despite the drought he still has 19 league goals I believe....

    He's had a great season for them...

    Wiggins should've been in the list.

    Solly? Kermorgant? Morrison?
    All three would have been slightly above Jackson, and far above BWP.
    And three MK Dons players when they've been 5th all season.

    Keep in mind that players like Solly, Morrison etc very rarely steal the show. They're the sort of players you would need to be a Charlton fan week in week out seeing what they do in order to fully recognise their contributions.

    From the outside, Wright-Phillips and Jackson are the ones banging in the goals and therefore will get the attention.

    I'm actually surprised to see Jackson managed to pip Ched Evans to second place.

    @cafctom true but surely the Managers who've seen these players would notice a solid defensive display from Morrison etc

    How the hell can the MK Dons have 3 players in the top 10?

    well, they're a decent side

    their 10 men outplayed our 11 for 45 minutes at the Valley last month

    It's ridiculous. We're only halfway through March and the votes would have had to come in a couple of weeks ago when we were less than three quarters of the way through the season.

    exactly !!

    For Solly to not get into the top 10 is outrageous
  • Options
    Couldn't agree more, ludicrous that solly doesn't make the top 10 good case for one or two others to have made it as well - wiggins, morrison, kermogant

    Michael Morrison won player of the month, for a defender that's unheard of how he didn't get in I do not know. Joke !
