Some Pleasing Surprises At Awards Night
I postulated (that's a good word innit!) some of the potential award winners earlier tonight, and thankfully those deserving of praise got it at the dinner tonight.
Brad Guzan was named Players' Player of the Season and Supporters' Player of the Season.
The latter Terrace Trophy Award Guzan took after winning six Man of the Match votes, narrowly beating Andi to the Award. Mr Kicksave and our regular goal tender this campaign also finished as runner up in the Man of the Match votes on five occasions.
Guzan received 33 points, whilst Andi got 30 points. Benteke was on 26 points, somehow N'Zogbia got 18 points and Westwood got 17 points.
Christian Benteke took home the Players' Young Player of the Year, with Andi Weimann winning the Supporters' Young Player of the Year award.
Andi took the award with 51% of the vote, Benteke was 2nd with 44% and Nathan 'land on my head' Baker was third with 3%.
Matt Lowton's baby inducing strike against Stoke City was a unanimous winner for Goal of the Season.
Unanimous doesn't need to mean 100% thesedays, but Lowton secured 83% of the vote. Andi's goal against Liverpool received 10%, and his goal against Manchester United received 2%.
There was also rightly a special presentation and award to our Champions of Europe - the U19 side for their Next Generation exploits.
Now let's just hope the season Awards dinner don't prove to be an omen taking place before the end of the erm actual season.
