Between Greenwood & Pulisic for me, i'd probably give the nod to Pulisic, but both have had great seasons.

One to keep an eye out for next season is Will Smallbone
Will Smallbone? What an unfortunate name.

Re: Pope nominated for PL Player of the Season

I voted earlier. I’d love him to win it but I would assume the players from the bigger clubs would get more votes through sheer weight of numbers. It’s a shame really but if you nominated a dog from United for this award there’s a good chance it would win. 😊

If all the rumours of our players leaving were true we'd lose half the bloody team and then Dyche would clear off in despair.
