    PFA Player of the year- Steven Gerrard

    No surprise there then. Another excellent season from him. Best midfielder in the premiership.

    Well deserved

    Well deserved by Stevie G. Had to be between him & Henry for it for me. Henry is looking likely to finish top scorer in the premiership yet again this year. Had he not won two years running it might have gone the other way but Stevie desereves it too so fair play.

    Very surprised at the young player award (although not really surprised) - thought it had to go to either Bent or Fabregas & possibly even Lennon before Rooney.

    Rooney is a smashing player and one I admire but I think I've seen better seasons from him than this one. Bent's performances have been outstanding and Fabregas has been brilliant all season, one of the real bright sparks when Arsenal were playing so badly early on.

    I don't know if it has been Stevies best year since he became a pro,but it's just a case of his fellow players rewarding him for 4 or 5 consistantly excellent seasons.Henry is more influential at arsenal than gerrard at liverpool,but steve deserves it at least once.

    I would agree with that. I actually thought he was better last season but it's like you say, he's being rewarded for being consistently excellent for the last few years.

    The timing of the voting is usually around January or Feb so that influences the voting. I actually think Gerrard has been quiet the last couple of months. Its nearly judge on a calender year than a season.

    Awful decision. Way more deserving would be (INO) Lampard, Terry, Henry, Rooney, Given, Harewood and probably one or two others. He got it for the champions league win last season.

    Gerrard's the most over rated player in the world

    It's player of the year, not season and Harewood only played 4 full months of 2005 in the premiership. Gerrard has done more than Lampard, bar score as much goals. Gerrard is a better player than Lampard too. Winning the CL along just puts Gerrard ahead of the rest imo.

    Lampard is the most over rated player in the world, you'll find. Anonymous again on Saturday, big games don't suit the badge kisser.

    I had a feeling this would develop into a who's better scenario. The thing is Lampard was outstanding up until Christmas IMO but has been quiet for the last few months especially on the goals front.

    Henry had a very quiet spell which coincided with Arsenal going on a very poor run although I have since read somewhere that he has carried an Achilles injury for most of the season.

    Rooney is outstanding in fits and bursts but not consistent enough IMO to be considered for a prize like this yet.

    Harewood , yes he's had a great first season in the top flight but if I was going to go for an outsider then I would have Darren Bent ahead of him.

    Given, outstanding yet again but let's face it, it would have to be a pretty amazing season for a goalkeeper to win Player of the Year ahead of the above talent amongst others.

    IMO, Gerrard only got it because it was a really poor season over all in the premiership. No team shone through. No player was above and beyond the rest. As somebody else mentioned, these awards were a confidence booster to the English lads heading off to the world cup. Give Gerrard player of the year and Rooney young player of the year and it might inspire them to great things in the summer.
    The premiership is gone stale, end of. The sooner the better the barstoolers realise that and start coming out to watch real football.

    give us a break will ya. The awards are voted by fellow players & last time I checked quite a few of them were foreigners. How do you figure its a confidence boosting exercise for the english lads? The guys they play against week in & week out voted for them so its a very well deserved honour.
    you are only a loser when you stop trying. Playing sport does not build character, it reveals it.

    IMO "real football" as you put it, is watching Barcelona or anyone that plays a good passing game instead of humping it up the park. Unfortunately you don't see a lot of it these days....

    Gerard and Henry are streets ahead of anyone else in the Premiership at this time and Gerard won out because he led a team to the Champions League and rightly so, if Arsenal had won it then Henry won have got the vote. How anyone can compare Lampard to these two is beyond me.

    Definitely wins the award for Daft Comment of the Year!

    Like it or not, Gerrard is a world class player. There is not a team in the world he would not be a first choice for.

    Doyle won the PFA Fans Player of the Month award for the Championship in January. The PFA Fans Player of the Year will not be announced until May.

    There is no players Player of the Year Award for the Championship but Doyle made the PFA Championship Team of the Year.

    Rooney's really been the key player for a Man Utd team that's scored 79 points with three games left - enough to win the league most years. When he's played his best, they've been excellent. Bent had a very good season, as has Fabrigas, but it doesn't surprise me to see Rooney get it.

    Gerrard has been similarly dominant for a very good Liverpool side. Again. I used to snigger at the English commentators drooling over a young Gerard, because he clearly wasn't the player they thought he was. He is now.
    Vaccinated.
