The year is nearly over and like almost everyone else we will be looking back on the year from a Blues perspective. 2010 was not a vintage year in terms of results (Only seven league wins so far) but it did see us retain our Premier League place with a best ever finish. Add to that good runs in both the FA and Carling Cups there have been a good few reasons for Bluenoses to smile this year.
But who has been the best player of 2010. I’ve put together this shortlist and you can vote in the poll on the right.
Our midfield general who runs the show with a calming quality and a good range of passing. Scored the winning goal in our excellent FA Cup win at Goodison Park.
Our top scorer in 2010 with ten league goals. Still divides opinion but nobody else has been able to come in and take his place.
Joined in January and instantly became a fans favourite due to his all workrate and goals from midfield. Is our top scorer so far this year.
A rock at the back who would probably tackle a horse if it stopped a goal. How he has never been selected for England is a mystery to us all.
Roger’s partner who has helped form a great defensive partnership. We would be lost without them.
Not a natural left back but has made the position his own this year. Has scored a few important goals as well.
Only joined in the summer but has so far proved to be a very good signing. We would be in the bottom three if it wasn’t for him. Some of his saves this year have been amazing.
