    Lewin hasn’t scored many and Robertson didn’t play for ages.

    Martial counts, as he came through their academy. Same as Eric Bailly!!
    You’d be hard pushed to look beyond Rashford and McTominay for PFA young player of the year though to be honest!!! I suppose Terence Trent Derby Alexander O’Neil, from the Dippers might be in with a shout......

    Will be a Rag, Dipper or Spurs player, and will be for years to come. The vote has nothing to do with talent.

    It's a players vote for PFA Young Player, so Sane or Sterling.

    They really should lower the age on this from 23 to 21. It's not that I don't want Sterling to win, but it's farcical that someone can win Young Player of the Year after 6 full seasons of PL football.

    Without wanting to sound American, they should make it 'Rookie of the Year' and make some changes to who is eligible:
    • Must be under 21
    • Must not have been involved for more that 2 seasons
    • Played less that 50 Premier League games
    The idea that Sterling is eligible for this award is laughable. He is a 50 million pound, England international that has played over 200 professional games

    That’s why I think Sane will win it.

    It won't be Sterling as I think fellow professionals at other clubs will buy the media bullshit and also claim he only scores tap ins so X amount of his goals aren't 'real goals'.
