Vital MCFC's Player of The Season: Elano

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!

Interesting how the defenders or keeper get most MoTMs against the top 4 teams. I wonder how many of these players will still be here next season and how many new faces will come in - Fair Play outcome will make a difference to the signings we can aim for.

For me Joe Hart is definitely the player of the season considering he didn't get a regular place until the second half of the season.

Well, lads, the result is based on Vital MCFC City fan's votes throughout the season. Elano just pipped it. You can certainly see who our most consistent performers have been over the league and cup games. They are the players our floundering hierarchy must hold on to!

I agree with Elano getting it, he scored and created goals for us to win a lot of games. I think we are all in confusion at the moment because of lack of information from our owner. I have a feeling that he cannot find anyone better than Sven to take over and once this issue has been settled then we can get on and plan for the coming season with our own speculations on what we want and who we want and JB will get his list going and see how acurate it is this time round.

I fear Sven could walk whatever happens, regardless of the hacks saying he's holding out for money. Meantime, I'd make Zenit's Andriy Arshavin top of my list. The quicksilver winger looks versatile to say the least. Dick Avocado revealed last morning that SOMEONE at Man City has made a bid for the player...

Michael Laudrup is the new link, anymore, perhaps Joe Royle wants another crack

JB, I thought that about Sven, but he maybe more stubborn than that just to walk away, he now has a point to prove here at City and the Fans do love him.

Looks like the crisis will be allowed to rumble on until after the Far East travelling circus is finished. Other sides are already identifying transfer targets for next season. This whole situation is pathetic.
