The polls have opened for this year’s player of the season award. The 23 players listed including last years winner Nemanja Vidic, had all started 10 or more games by the 15th March and there are some very strong candidates.

The obvious choice would be Wayne Rooney. He is having a hell of a season having currently scored 33 goals. His winner against Villa in the Carling Cup final as well as his performances against Hull and AC Milan make the Liverpudlian the favourite.

But United legend Denis Irwin begs to differ and feels Patrice Evra should get the nod for the award. The French left back has been the only constant in an ever changing back line and Irwin feels that he is deserving of as much praise as Rooney.

With Park Ji Sung and Darren Fletcher’s constant energy and big performance as well as Antonio Valencia stepping into the void left by Ronaldo and acquitting himself well, it will be very close but ultimately the decision lays in the hands of us the fans.
