The Man In The Stands
So who should get the Barry Butler silverware for 2008-10. Last season clearly didn't count.
Fraser has been a wall. He still can't kick, but if it's on target he usually gets something in the way. Tthat said, no loan player has won player of the season, and The Man would prefer it to stay that way.
Quite how Super Chrissy Martin isn't on the shortlisted is ridiculous. The guy has stepped up, looked a bit tired before scoring anyway, made up for Holty's random assaults and all sorts.
You may also want to watch:
No Wes, no silky football. Yes Sodje, silky football. And Nelson has turned The Man's opinion around quicker than he moves on the pitch.
Rusty, Doc, Drury, Korey, the King of Spain - who will score the winner on Saturday, by the way - would deserve to take last season's award off Crofty for this year's efforts.

But for the goals, the heart and giving us the hero we've missed so much in seasons past, The Man's vote is for Holty.
Either way, watching the big guy lift the trophy at Carra Rud will be beautiful enough.
And this time whoever picks up the Barry Butler will fully deserve it.
t Bad news - Crystal Palace are still not broke enough to move.
Their administrator reckons they can carry on at Hellhurst Park, which only just betters being homeless anyway.
Mind you, had they been relegated on Sunday no doubt some bright spark would have booked us at their place for a pre-season friendly.
As for Sheffield Wednesday, they should serve as a decent reminder getting out of the doldrums doesn't mean you won't return.
And nobody wants another visit to Carlisle any time soon.
t In the end we've outclassed this god forsaken league. Yet a few people are still struggling to raise a smile at us being champions.
Every comment this season has carried an 'it's only the third division but...'.
So look at Grimsby, Oldham, Luton. Even Leeds, Charlton, Southampton, Bradford.
The list of football's forgotten clubs is endless.
After Doomy and all ballsed the club up, David McGnarly and Lambo have delivered, and we're one step closer to the Man's ultimate goal of replacing plastic Wigan, Bolton or some other rubbish side in the land of make believe.
So as The Man embarks on his summer hibernation in Happisburgh we can finally say a proper goodbye to "League One". For good, you'd hope.
With all the records, all the wins, and all the rubbish that got us here, that's why the doldrums are gone - but shouldn't be forgotten.
Doncaster and Scunthorpe, here we come.
