    Player of the season discussion

    We've had so many stand out performers that this is going to be more difficult than ever. Just a month to go now, who stands out?

    I really am not going to complain at any of the regular starters at all - Hemed, Murphy, Skalak, Rosenior, Bong, Kayal, Sidwell - all absolutely superb, and all would walk into at least 20 starting XI this season I should think.

    Stephens - has made us tick all season. If we go up, please Albion, get him signed up. He will be so difficult to replace.
    Bruno - how can you not love this man? He oozes class. Make him club captain even if he is only cover in the division above.
    Dunk - still has a lot to learn about self discipline but let's not underestimate his worth to this team. Consistently good performer all season, just like the previous five.
    Duffy - who'd have thought he'd be so imperious after the first few games of the season for Blackburn and then us? What an upgrade. 4.5m very well spent, at a time when most fans were scratching their heads wondering why we needed to spend that sort of money in an area we had cover
    March - what a prospect Solly is - just a joy to watch. He will play for England next season or the season after IMO, because he WILL do it at the highest level in the land.
    Knocky - we've run out of superlatives for this guy. On his day, simply unplayable; and his day comes round pretty regularly. I think that covers it.

    But here is my top three. Knocky would have been in there if his away form was marginally better:
    3. Murray. Where would we be without his goals? Where would we be if Gus hadn't put his foot down over Murray's now proven justifiable wage demands? A Premier league striker who loves being here. There is nothing spectacular about Murray, he just holds the ball up brilliantly, and knows where the goal is. Everything you want in a striker. I loved Gus but watching Murray do in the Championship what we all saw he did for Gus in League One just boils my piss. Great player, great for us.
    2. Stockdale. I reckon the number of his clangers over the entire season can be counted on one hand and we all know he has saved us many MANY points with some superb displays. Rumour has it Sir Chris isn't entirely convinced by him at the top level, but nevertheless it's hard to see Albion parting with him after a season like this one. This season, he has been the best keeper I've ever seen at the club.
    1. Baldock. I've followed this club since 1978 and I can honestly say I've NEVER seen a player improve so much in a year and I don't think I ever will. This season he has just been magnificent. I spent all of last season trying to convince people on here he was the best forward we've ever had off the ball. I don't think anyone disagrees with that anymore, but this season his all round forward play has been almost perfect. He has taken chance after chance, and his montage of goals this season will be worth watching over and over again. And most of the goals he gets are important ones - not the third of four or whatever. His openers against Fulham and QPR both stand out as much as his wonderful off the ball running that creates space for others and are the main reason Murray and Knocky have scored so many.

      We weren't good without Baldock on Saturday. Infact we rarely are. He simply must be crowned as POTS.

      Tough call, between Murray (goals), and Knockaert (for his passion, and carrrying on after his dad died).

      Safe bet- all of them (provided we get promoted!)

      Stockdale. Worth so many points. Again (although even better)

      Dunk.

      Always solid, championships are won by defenders.

      Good post. I wouldn't have March in your first list - he hasn't done enough this season to be near the POTS final list for me - I would put him along with Sidwell, Hemed, Murphy, Skalak, Uwe as a critical squad member that has made key contributions (and probably will in the next few games too)

      As for POTS, I really don't know and there is still time for some one to jack up their claim (or would be if the voting was sensible and waited until the end of the season). At the moment I wouldn't be unhappy if it went to any one of Stockdale, Murray, Baldock, Stephens, Dunk, Duffy, Bruno or Knocky. Absolutely amazing that we have so many players in the running.
