Is Ryan Giggs winning the PFA Footballer of the Year a sick joke?!
The geezer has started twelve, yes twelve, Premiership games this season! How does that merit such an award?
Giggs has been superb over the years but I get the sneaky suspicion that he was only crowned PFA Footballer of the Year because it has eluded him in the past and he is in the twilight of his career.
I applaud his loyalty to Manchester United. Not many players stay at one club their whole career. Surely though he should be awarded for this at the end of his playing days and not given Footballer of the Year as a token gesture. Doesn't this take the shine off the award a little?
The winner should have been Xabi Alonso. Regular readers of this blog will now how much I rate the fella. He is absolute class and has played out of his skin this season.
Somehow even being named in the Premiership team of the year has eluded Alonso too. How?? Maybe I see a different game to others.
Its a shame that Arsenal have no players involved but I expect next season to be different. In fact I reckon that a certain Russian maybe right involved.
And I aint talking about Pavlyuchenko either pal!
Keep it Goonerish.................
