Your NUFC player of the year
Tim beat off tough competition from Captain Colo (2nd) and Cabaye (3rd) in your vote. Well deserved, Tim kept a Newcastle United Premier League record of 15 clean sheets and was an ever-present. Some of his saves this year have been absolutely top class
There were no less than 8 players voted for, which shows how well we have performed as a team this season!
Your most improved NUFC player?
Who'd have thought it? James Perch has gone from the least favourite player of most, to 'Perchinho'. His versatility was vital in our late season run - he especially excelled in a holding midfield spot, whilst also looking solid at full-back - most notably in the 2 v 0 win at Stamford Bridge. What a turn around. He was available for transfer at the end of last season and in January, but I have a feeling that he will remain for a while yet.
Most promising NUFC youngster?
Santon won this one by a mile and who am I to disagree? Davide looked nervous early on in the season and sometimes looked defensively vulnerable, but as the season progressed he really stepped up. By the end of the season, with Santon flying down the left and Jose Enrique playing in goal (when playing at all), it looks like we have another top player on our hands.
There were 7 players nominated in this category - another very encouraging sign. Haris Vuckic received the 2nd most votes, but he was quite a long way behind DS.
Your NUFC goal of the season (and there are PLENTY of candidates!)
Cisse vs Chelsea (A) (2nd goal)
I was lucky enough to be at The Bridge to see this goal. It will stick with me forever, but then again so will Ben Arfa's goal against Bolton at home - possibly the best goal I've ever seen at St James' Park. This season has provided us with wonder goal after wonder goal - I can't wait to get a hold of the end of season DVD and re-live them all again.
Your favourite game of the season?
Newcastle United 3 v Manchester United 0
Our win over Liverpool polled quite a few votes, but the 3 v 0 thrashing of title chasing Man United won. It was a phenomenal all-round performance with some cracking goals. Demba Ba was unplayable, Cabaye at his very best and if any of you have not watched the Cheick Tiote highlights video from this game on YouTube, I urge you to look them up now (World Class)
In response to my question on expectations, these seem to be pretty high amongst many of you who responded - I will offer my thoughts on this in a separate blog sometime soon!
