Alex Song – Player of the Year

The man on the left is my choice for Player of the Year. True, he didn’t make the PFA Team of the Year. However, when Ryan Giggs is voted PFA Player of the Year having only started 12 games then you know my opinion of the PFA awards.

A Negative told me last week that Song is not better than Carrick or Fletcher in center midfield. He also informed me that Vidic and Ferdinand were better than Song at center-back. I asked if Carrick or Fletcher can play center-back. He said “probably not.” I then asked him if Ferdinand or Vidic could play as good as Song in center midfield? He shook his head.

Ferdinand has played 14 years as a center-back. Give Song that amount of experience and I am sure you will see him make the PFA Team of the Year every season.

Song doesn’t have the height of Carrick, Vidic, Ferdinand or Fletcher but still out jumps tall muscular strikers like Heskey or Agbonlahor. He has great timing in the tackle, he’s also strong in the tackle and will never be bullied in a game. The Negatives hate his lazy, stoned look, and use it as a weapon for his exclusion from the team. His passing needs improvement but I am confident that it will. After all, his passing is better than what a lot of people give him credit for.

Certain games stand out where Song was outstanding. Both games at Old Trafford. His substitute appearence at White Hart Lane when Eboue was sent off. His Carling Cup performance against Wigan, where he made mincemeat of Emile Heskey.

Arsenal bought from Bastia for 1 million pounds. Today he is worth a lot more.
