Nathan Redmond Wins England U21 Player Of The Year Award
Monday, 30th Jan 2017 10:12
Nathan Redmond has come in for some criticism from Saints supporters, but at International level he has been acclaimed as the best player of the season. But he had competition from a Saints team mate.
The vote conducted amongst the members of the England Supporters club saw Redmond poll 32% of the vote to knock fellow Saint James Ward Prowse (25%) into second with third place going to Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek (12 %).
This is a good award to win and will perhaps go a little way to convincing some of our supporters that Redmond is a talent, but he like some of his Saints team mates are struggling with the system at present.
Saints also had an interest in the vote for the full squad's player of the year, it was won by former St Mary's favourite Adam Lallana, whilst this will not please some, it does highlight that the Saints youth system has produced some cracking players since it was revamped back in 2000 as shown by the number of our sadly mainly ex players who were at the club pre administration in 2009 who have gone on to International success.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
