SAFCBlog Player of the season
After just 2 votes in 2018/19 saw Big Jon scoop this coveted award, an impressive 7 votes were received this time!
Got to be In It To Win It….
The winner, (drawn at random), is Jamie Foster, who despite not winning with his vote for Willis – does win the SAFCBlog Prize Draw…..
LAST YEARS WINNER JON McLAUGHLIN IS STILL TO COLLECT HIS AWARD. EMAIL ME ON email@example.com AND I’LL ARRANGE TO PRESENT THE AWARD AT AN APPROPRIATE SOCIAL DISTANCE.
SAFC Player of the season 2018/19
Jon McLaughlin won last seasons inaugural SAFCBlog ‘Player Of The Season Award’, he was brilliant – the fact we drew most weeks and our keeper was our best player perhaps tells it’s own tale.
An amazing stat from last season was that Big Jon became the first ever keeper to save a penalty at the SOL…… the first penalty save in a Sunderland home game since Tony Norman denied Graham Roberts at Roker Park!
Onto this season…….
Pre season expectations are always high and it’s a fresh start for everyone. McNulty arrived from Coventry full of promise, Grigg must be better this season, McGeady will terrorise defences now he’s not got a sore foot.. safe to say none of these 3 are in the running?
Not for the first time in recent seasons, there is no stand out contender. Whilst this can mean, there’s so many outstanding candidates, equally it can also mean, no one has been particularly good!
Memories of Fulham Away..
About 5 or 6 years ago, (the 4-1 game), we jumped in cab having got lost looking for the ground. Typical London Cabbie, massive Spurs fan etc – he asked, ‘who’s your star player?’, we didn’t have an answer and ended up saying Mannone was decent. If only we’d know that AJ would fire a hat trick that day
Strange season in lots of ways, didn’t finish, change of gaffer, lots of false dawns, (ie Willis/Lynch looked the answer, then it was Willis/Wright, then Flanagan re-emerged etc)
Thought about doing it as Twitter Poll, but decided against it
- I don’t know how to do this
- I vote in every Twitter Poll I see, I just can’t help myself
So, nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
The shortlist is as follows;
