PFA Young Player of the Year. Really? Over Aguero? There's something fishy going on here. (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images for New York Red Bullss)
For those of you who are aware of my team over this past weekend (mostly the David De Gea portion of my team). I want to reassure you that there is no truth to the rumor that I have paid off either Opta or Yahoo! to keep the points from being posted. :-)
Here's hoping that the points get posted soon so we can all get back to living our lives.
On the other hand, as a blogger I am enjoying the fact that Nik's post about the points led to a lot of traffic and comments on a match-less Monday that we otherwise wouldn't likely have gotten. Maybe there's something too this delayed points thing. (Kidding)
In the meantime, does anyone have any idea how Kyle Walker won PFA Young Player of the Year over Sergio Aguero? I know the balloting wraps up earlier than you'd think in this technology-centric world but has no consideration been given to the last two months or so of Spurs season? Is it possible that players can't be troubled to respond via email/web/Twitter so that the vote could be delayed until more of the season is complete?
I generally don't pay too much attention to post-season individual awards like this but I have to say it reeks of the same love of tradition that keeps goal line replays and retrospective bans out of the game. The world has changed and the people who run the game have clearly not kept up. This isn't surprising but is sure is annoying.
OK, you are now free to go back to the technology-inspired irritation you were previously experiencing with the lack of a points update.
