    I think the problem was as everyone was voting by E-mail there was nothing to stop the thread from sinking which is why a few people missed it but I did post two threads up, one with the idea and one witht he voting details so I was hopeing it wouldn't be a big issue. Hopefully for next year none of you will miss it

    Well done Slash/ED I enjoyed it, regardless of who the winners were.

    I think some of you are being a bit harsh on Slash/ED, he did this completely off the bat in his own time, with limited resources. It's the first year, hopefully of many, so cut him some slack. Next year we'll try and set up a dedicated polling booth and we might even try to organise some kind of prize fund from donations, with Slash/ED's agreement of course.

    Ah yeah, of course credit where it's due. Fair play Slash/ED. I am disappointed i missed the poll although that's my own problem. Will keep an eye out next year

    Well said boss man. Personally i missed the thread myself, it should have been made a sticky and that would have given it a bit more expousre and a chance for more people to vote. But with all things like this people nearly always vote for a player off there own team or a player they dislike the most etc....... Good job Slash/ed.

    Not many, somewhere in the region of 15-20. I'd hoped for more and it seems more people missed the thread than I thought, hopefully you'll all know for next year .

    Thanks for the good words dahamsta and everyone else and for the person looking for just the results I'll post them up now. I can't put the nominations in too as it would go beyond the posting limit.

    EL Player of the year: Jason Byrne
    Division one player of the year: Kevin McHugh
    EL Young player of the year: Shared between four joint winners, Mark O'Brien (Maybe A Longford winner afterall ), Wes Hoolahan, Kevin Doyle and Liam Kearney
    Division one young player of the year: Eamon Zayed

    Most improved team: Drogheda United
    Best manager: Pat Fenlon
    Irish international player of the year: Damien Duff (Pipped Kilbane by a single vote by the way, Kilbane was leading for a long time, some turn around for him since joining Everton)
    Best new cap: Aiden McGeady
    Best uncapped Irish player: Owen Heary

    Irish youth teams player of the year: Stephen Elliot
    Best Goal: Robbie Keane V Holland
    Best Save: Shay Given V Switzerland

    Hero of 2004: Two joint winners, Roy Keane and Dave Rogers
    Villain of 2004: Roddy Collins
    Most under rated: Lee Carsley
    Most over rated: Alan Moore

    Best chant: Shels indian war cry
    Most amusing winner: Jointly held by 10 different moments, if you want I'll list them, basically everyone who voted in this category voted differently.

    Moment of 2004: Another joint winner, Dave Rogers goal v Split and Ireland drawing in Paris.

    It was a very short run to be fair and I didn't think many people would notice, but I wanted Slash/ED to have his run so I kept my mouth shut.

    I was thinking along the same lines earlier on in the year but I was really concentrating on one particular award: Best Supporters. Obviously there could have been other awards too, but I wanted to concentrate on Best Supporters because: a) that's a lot of what Foot.ie is about, fostering support for the eL; and b) I was thinking of asking for donations for a prize fund, which would be awarded to the club that won (for development obviously).

    I wasn't actually going to implement this until next year anyway, because I thought it would be a good idea to give a full season's notice so people could keep an eye on things with the award in mind, so should we give it a go for next year? Again, it would have to be with Slash/ED's blessing of course, but I've mentioned it already and he seemed keen.

    Absolutley, that sounds like an excellent idea. We could add that category to whatever kind of awards will be run next year and we've plenty of time to get a fund going, since people know it will be going towards an EL club I think they'd be more than willing to get involved with helping the fund too. The whole thing this year was implemented with very short notice which is hopefully something that wont be an issue next year, I think with more planning and now that people will be looking out for it we can get far more votes in and it'll be far better next year overall. That's the plan anyway.

    But of course if that is the case then it is likely that a lot of supporters clubs will have campaigns to get people regsitered here to vote for their club. Rewards the club with the most supporters which is not necessarily the Best Supporters. For example there is no way that Limerick FC supporters would beat Cork City supporters to this award yet the supporters of Limerick FC have shown true commitment to their club in very difficult times while it is very easy to be a Cork City supporter these days (just an example - not getting at City - see my location).

    If money is available (e.g. for flags) then smaller clubs without a lot of supporters but with very commited supporters may need that more.

    So, my suggestion is that members of the board are not allowed vote for their own club. Any comments?

    Well done on the awards!
    However in light of the highly unethical behaviour of one or two club managers in the past two seasons may I suggest two categories for next season:

    Judas of the Year
    and of course there should also be a Clown Prince of the Year too !

    Whats the obsession with Bohs losing to Dublin City?

    Is there only Cork and Shels in the league then?

    As for Shels winning the best chant thats a complete joke.I would have said they should have won the most annoying chant of the season award!!!!

    Bohs Till I Die!
    Bohs Will Be Back!!!
