Awards that are not based on statistics or anything that’s actually measurable are hogwash. And so we turn to the PFA Player of the Year shortlist.
Which doesn’t include Clint Dempsey. Or Grant Holt. Or any player that is carrying an entire team on their back. But does include three City players (including the goalie), Arsenal’s best player, England’s Great White Hope, and Wayne Rooney.
Hmph. Let’s just enjoy this video of all of Clint’s goals this season and smugly mutter to ourselves….
Oh wait, we can’t watch this video because the EPL pulled it. Makes as much sense as handing out an award before the season is even over.
