I still maintain him getting sent off in the 93rd minute for a stupid foul against City in the 2013-14 season cost us the league that season.

He was playing extremely well at that point

Look it’s simple, great guy good leader and some teams are better for having that type of player... Is he the best player? No. Does he make a team click or perform better, maybe. Is he the best player? Definitely not.

If his peers have voted him the best , ya just have to accept he his.  Wouldn’t be mine but I accept his importance to Liverpool, but if he never played for Liverpool I wouldn’t see Liverpool not winning the league because of it.

Agueru won league for City, Cantona for Utd and Henry/Bergkamp for Arsenal. I’ll overly remember Henderson in that company
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

You’re getting too tangled up in it MR2. He was excellent this season and deserved his award. Other players also deserved the award, but he got the votes.

There's a lot of people too tangled in it....

Scott Parker won it one year ffs, David Ginola got it the year United won the treble... A trinket that's not worth debating too much.

Had to check that one. But, in fairness, he is definitely an outlier looking at the winners just over the last 20 years - Henry, Ronaldo, Gerrard, Hazard, Suarez, Rooney, Bale, Lampard, Salah.

In fairness to Parker, there were no players that year who were obviously stand-out performers.

Yeah, just had a look at the other awards that year.
Gareth Bale - PFA Player of the Year
Jack Wilshere - PFA Young player of the Year.
Raul Meireles - Fans Player of the Year

Vardy (2016) and Parker (2011) are the only two this decade not to have won any of the other individual trinkets being handed out at this time of the year.  Salah & Suarez the only two pick have a clean sweep of all the awards this decade.
