I prefer Miazga to Martinez... Martinez has pulled off some great saves, but also cost us more than one clear goal. I can't recall any clear cut errors from Miazga that resulted in a goal.

Because Martinez hasn't saved any certain goals.......

Sutekh That time of year again and I've seen it mentioned on the injury thread so thought I'd separate it onto it's own thread so we all know where it is 8)

Can't really see beyond the three names below myself

  1. Yiadom
  2. Rino
  3. Meite

Can/could we include the loanees though?

No poll? Are you some kind of sicko?

Yiadom is the correct answer btw.

This.

Has Martinez cost us any goals which have directly resulted in points lost?

Wigan - we won
Sheffield Utd - we were never really going to win that anyway

Can't think of many more.

Elm Park Kid This award has pretty much descended into: "Who has played a reasonable number of games and not been awful."

On that basis I guess Yiadom; hasn't done a lot wrong, hasn't added much to our attack though.

I can see why giving it to Rinomhota would be a bit more meaningful; recognise a young player who has done well given the circumstances.

Martinez has been our most important player of the season though . . .


Apart from, as previously mentioned, being our leading assist maker.

Nope, he should have done better against Blackburn but again we won anyway. I still think he was beaten at his near post too easily against Leeds for their second but we lost 3-0 anyway. Only thing you can say is it may hamper the goal difference but he's made many a good save to cancel out the few dodgy ones anyway

I agree that Miazga should get it over Martinez, he's been Mr Reliable at the back and as said I can't remember any mistake from him which has led to a goal

But they've been two excellent players in their brief stint here, two very smart signings

Will we be doing a HobNob member of the season? I seem to remember it happening in previous seasons

Yet again you're completely wrong. Congrats on keeping the streak going.

I think it was more pointing out he has saved us more goals than cost us so the point is moot.

I'm sorry I can't bow to your superior knowledge, but you have to remember not everyone is as intelligent as you two fine posters

I didn't say he hadn't.

Good player who has cost us a couple of silly goals in otherwise very good performances < good player who hasn't cost us silly goals in otherwise very good performances

IMO.

I didn't think it was a particularly controversial or difficult point of view to follow. You prefer Martinez. That's nice.

Martinez is shoo-in. If Rinomhota can come back and hit the ground running he might steal it back, but Martinez is so comfortably head and shoulders above the rest of our team

Is everyone here very stoned? Martinez is not player of the season.

Every goalkeeper who gets a decent run should save more than they concede. I think Jonathan Bond might have been an exception to that under Clarke but it's not a high bar.

Answering the question - Yiadom, Bodvarsson, Rinomhota for me. But we've had so much squad rotation that it's very difficult to pick anyone.

Let's be honest....the only person that deserves the award is the one player who crops up in the 92nd minute of the last game and keeps us up.....or a player that stands up from now til the end and gets us out of this mess. Its all premature at this stage.
