Especially as our league form dropped significantly at the end of the season due to CL we only won 2 of the last 6 games and we were only 3 points behind City.

Also only 21 league goals conceded

85% of voters included him in the BBC team of 2018, the other 15% must be bitter fuckers

Mo was selected by 87%

TBH......Virgil is probably a solid shout at this point for the POTY awards even over the flashy goal-scorers, especially given how early the PFA ones go out in the second half of the season.
About time a defender picked it up again. Title win might help as well.

I reckon VVD has an excellent chance of winning POTY. It's not just his defending that's winning him plaudits, it's his range of passing, leadership and how he's transformed our defence in less than a season. He's a remarkable player and he chose us over City

I'd love it if he shaves his head and grows a massive fucking beard for the last part of the season.

i wouldn't be surprised to see Hazard in there as well. Despite the fact that he has gone hot and cold since October, he started the season really well and there was a general media wankfest about him....

I agree though - would love Son in our team. I remember Mostar used to be going on about him when he was at Leverkusen saying he would be a good signing. Spurs did well to get him for £17m or whatever it was.

Son has only started 10 games, scored his first league goal on 24th November and will miss another chunk of the season when he heads off to the Asian cup.

He shouldn't be anywhere near Virgil in the voting.

Purple patch at the moment for him.

Remember when Ginola had about 6 amazing games and ended up with POTY???

I think Giggs did something similar too.....

Giggs didn't even have a few amazing games he got it because he'd never won it before.

VVD is that good he's now having eulogies written about him by hardcore United fans - Andy Mitten set up the United We Stand fanzine.

Selling VVD could end up costing them a lot more than £75m though!!!

He was raging at full time. Kompany tried to give him some bantz but big Virgil totally ignored him.

We have some monster personalities and characters in our team now.

He sets the tone.

Aims for perfection and if we don't get near it has is not happy. The guy is a winner. With his attitude and Klopp managing morale we will be back on it next time we play in the League.

He rightfully went mental at Lovren when he hit that last long ball into the box on his weaker foot and it went out, rather then sending it wide for Robertson to swing it on on his stronger foot.

Yep. Had we been more patient in the last 5 minutes of injury time, we could have sneaked one in. Virgil didn't like that rushed punt at the end.

I dont think it matters at all. The negative impact of removing captaincy far out weighs the positives of giving it.

Does being captain make VVD play better or act differently on the pitch? No chance.

We need a team of leaders who wears the arm band is irrelevant.

once a month this comes up

our current structure of 4 works fine. Was funny when the ref pulled VVD when he wanted to speak to Robertson thinking he was the captain though.
