Vital MCFC's Player of The Season: Elano
While the MCFC crisis and the Far East Farce rumble on, time to give credit to Elano Blumer, Vital MCFC's Player of The Season...
Elano came in for plenty of stick as he battled to maintain the form he showed in the early part of the season. But there were signs recently that after having been sussed out, sat on and wound up for so long he was becoming more streetwise in the Premier League. The goal he scored at Boro United would have been a match winner in any other circumstances!
So here are the Vital MCFC scores on the doors for season 2007-2008. The Chelsea and Middlesboro away debacles saw no vote take place for obvious reasons, but the overall results give an interesting indicator of how Svennis's small, young squad have performed or in some cases, under performed.
There have been some brilliant MOTM performances in what has been a hard season of lessons and adjustment from not only 6 of Sven's 8 rushed signings, but also our Academy graduates, still learning their trade.
Well played Elano! A free and utterly pointless holiday in Thailand awaits you!
