Young & Agbonlahor Nominated

The official site have announced that both Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor have made the last six in the nominations for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Also on the list are Johnny Evans (who according to Google is either a Manchester United player or an English archaeologist and geologist born in 1925. Being an investigative journalist I'd deduce he is the former!), Stephen Ireland (Manchester City), Aaron Lennon (Spurs) and Rafael Da Silva (Manchester United)

If Man Utd players are nominated, is it not in the rules that they should be given an extra five minutes and then made the winners?! :o)

Andy Gray won this in 1977 and Gary Shaw in 1981.

Great reward for Gabbys efforts. Not bad for a player that the fickle have jeered this year. Thank god then we didn't have any of the young players that haven't been nominated, or some fans would have them swinging from the gallows. Personally I think if he wants to do his best for the team that is good enough for me. How long since we have been able to say the top scoring English man in the league, is a Villa fan from Erdington? He scores against the biggest names and in his short career has already scored against Manure, Chelski, The Arse, Murderpool, Bluescouse to name a few. I remember last season him clearing off the line at Sty Andrews then going up the other end and heading the winner(just to prove he does it against the small clubs aswell as the big ones). Capello thinks he is good enough for England, but still some fans are never satisfied. The player, the man, may not be every bodys cup of tea. But he is one of us. He has gone the extra mile. He has had to play up front on his own (I actually think he gives more to the team in this role), he has partnered Heskey and Carew and he never shys away. Well done Gabby. You have improved again this year and I for one think we will see even more from him next season as hopes to get on the plane to South Africa. I think Ashley has had a good year of development, but has gone off the boil since his 2 goal brace against Bluescouse. He does though work his socks off every game and that is what all fans ask of anybody wearing the shirt. However his tendency to make a meal of many of the challenges against him though doesn't help. He is now a marked man by referees and it is this reputation that may have gone against him getting a penalty or 2 on Sunday. Personnaly I felt neither challenge at the start of the 2nd half was worthy of a penalty. Still, it is brilliant to see two young, english Villa players in the spotlight. Well done to both.
