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

"the award is judged over the majority of a season, not the last 2 months"
Yeah, I know, but I reckon it continues till April, so it is still too early to tell.
Rooney scored some goals early in the season, then quiet a bit, then recently scored again.
Fabregas has been on and off mostly due to injury, but when he is not injured, everyone can see his influence to Arsenal.
Tevez got a slow start due to pre-season injury, as well as joining a new club. So we have to take that into account as Rooney and Fabregas are playing with the same clubs for some time now. But Tevez has surged so fast that catch the eyes of everyone. If he can continue with the form like that, it will be some thing to watch and could take the eyes of others from Rooney or Fabregas.
So, it is hard to tell now. Don't forget but I think you realise, POTY is chosen by professional footballers by votes. The one who catch their eyes most will be the winner.
