1617 burnley robbie brady 00 500x500Last week we ran a man of the match poll after the 2-2 friendly draw against Celta Vigo and the plan was to run a second one for the Hannover 96 game which became pointless when the game was called off at half time.

Robbie Brady, who scored our first goal and got an assist on the second, was the clear winner with 42% of the vote on what was a positive result for the midfield as a whole. Had this been a competitive fixture and points had been awarded towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year, they would have all gone to midfielders.

Steven Defour was second with a 22% share and he was followed by Jack Cork and Jeff Hendrick who won 13% and 8% of the vote respectively to take third and fourth places while only Kevin Long, coming fifth, prevented a clean sweep for the midfield with Johann Berg Gudmundsson right behind.

It all starts for real this Saturday with the first man of the match vote of the new season. It will be available around an hour after the final whistle at Chelsea as will the player ratings thread on the message board.

Who will be the second Up the Clarets Player of the Year? Ben Mee won it last season, just beating his central defensive partner Michael Keane with the pair well ahead of goalkeeper Tom Heaton who finished third.
