Lee 'haven't played a game all season' Trundle, and Jack 'was bobbins in League 1' Lester in the top 50... yeah right...

 

beckford is a good player... but to be honest, just seems like Craig Davies with a little more accuracy... pretty sure a ceertain number 9 would be in there if it wasnt for injury... and will be next year!

17 players from just four clubs there (Wolves, West Brom, Watford, Charlton).

 

Seems a bit meh. And Leeds keeper? :lol:

 

All those West Brom players as Coco says yet no sign of Bednar who has been brilliant for them. Probably too late for the vote to be fair though as he was injured for a while.

Don't remember us giving him much to do really. Have drank a lot between then and now though, so may be my memory failing me...

 

He was blatantly obviously injured in the game at Leeds though with either his groin or hamstring playing up. Looked a pretty decent commanding keeper at BP to me.

 

 

As for Bednar, is this a list of permanent players (i.e are Scottish Premier players removed)?

Sorry but can't agree with the slating of Ankergren...If it wasn't for him we would've had a justified 6-1 drubbing of the White:censored:e on New Years Day...indeed, I felt sorry for Davies as Ankergren kept the lads then-goaldrought going. And not much he could do for the goals. Hazell screamer, shocking defending at Trotmans headed corner and an own goal. Ok, maybe the 3rd one, he may have done better. Overall though, he kept the score down and seems a decent keeper (let's not forget how Leeds have been battered and won games still this season, usually with a scrawpy late goal....must be a lot down to him keeping the goals out.)

So you have put Mark Allott higher than a player who is clearly a class above ;)

Yeah cos Soccer Am said so didn't they? ;-) He played against us numerous times and was anonymous every time. Thats why he doesn't catch at Brizzle. The guy's been found out. Great in Division 4, a few good games in division 3 and can't cut in Division 2. Give me consistency over a fat feckin scouse prima donna any time.
