Almost the same choice for me. Nels might just get my vote by virtue of his playing every minute of every league game so far. Will wait and vote after the Shrewsbury game in the hope that Ruffs scores another couple of wonder goals!
gone for Eastwood after giving it much thought. said elsewhere that i don’t think you can put our better form 100% down to him but he certainly seems to have given the defence more confidence and the games i’ve seen where a lot of players weren’t up to their usual standards, Clint has always stood out for me and has had the most consistency
Depends whether you think Player of the Season is to reward the best player on the team, or the player that's done the most to capture the hearts and minds of the fans. I think they're only occasionally the same thing.
If it's the former, I'd say it's probably Nelson.
If it's the latter, I'd say it's probably Ruffels (been with us the longest, multiple positions, consistency and the last minute winners...…)
If you want to combine the two, you can probably come up with a convincing argument for Brannagan. Certainly hoping he's still with us next year.
Curtis Nelson. I don't think any player particularly stood out first half of the season, so I'm basing my decision purely on the second, during which Nelson has been absolutely brilliant. I really think without him in the side we'd be much closer to the drop than we are now. He could've quite easily gone through the motions knowing he's off in the summer, but instead he stayed, fought hard, and has put in countless stellar performances.
