PFA Award: Stephen Ireland v Ashley Young

PFA Award: Stephen Ireland v Ashley Young

From the comparison below from their latest games you can see the difference between the two players quite clearly.

Stephen Ireland has a much higher pass completion rate, as well as working all over the pitch to help his team.

The evidence in favour of Ireland is overwhelming and the fact that the Manchester City midfielder did not claim the coveted award only serves to diminish the credibility of the FA.

















In addition to this, the fact that Rio Ferdinand was nominated ahead of Brede Hangeland and Ryan Giggs was nominated ahead of Frank Lampard makes the whole awards a farce.

The fact that 12 games and a solitary goal Giggs actually won the main award is beggars belief.

I think this article says it all - the FA and the rest of the PL are against City and our players. I would think SI would have walked it if the neutral fan had voted.

Your quote that "the fact that the Manchester City midfielder did not claim the coveted award only serves to diminish the credibility of the FA" only goes to diminish YOUR credibility! The award is from the PFA - Professional Footballers Association - NOT the FA. It is voted for by professional footballers. I know City fans can be paranoid, but get real!
