Manchester United Message Board
yes the pfa will no doubt give it to the prems top scorer not forgetting all the assists, so pit your money on rooney to walk it this year, but you wont get good odds as its a banker.
Rooney will be Player of the Season? Perhaps speak too soon, for now.
Being top scorer doesn't automatically mean he will be Player of the Season.
We have to look at how consistent a player can play well this season, plus how significant the player's contribution to his club.
Other contenders, for now, include Fabregas and Tevez (surprised!)
It takes Rooney half a season + 1 month to score 19 goals, but it takes Tevez just less than 2 months to score 13 goals (total), or 10 PL goals. Fabregas' influence with Arsenal is very outstanding so far as well, scoring 11 goals.
So, after Rooney bagged 4 goals, it looks like he is the front runner now, but watch out for Tevez to continue his best form, as well as Fabregas to continue winning games for Arsenal.
So until April, it is hard to say who will win it now. But for those who don't like Tevez, better pray Rooney won't get injured, or Tevez slowed down his form. lol
