Is that why he's starting to drift on here for SPOTY?
Report Darren Lamb December 7, 2009 10:20 PM GMT
0.60 points bigger than the shortest he has been matched at is hardly a drift.

How so? No one in Wales likes him?

is this another Happy Hour please ?
Report Darren Lamb December 7, 2009 10:29 PM GMT
This is the second time Giggs has won the award, having last been awarded the trophy in 1996, and the evergreen Cardiff-born star has had another outstanding year.

Manchester United won the Barclays Premier League, the Carling Cup and were Uefa Champion League finalists, while Giggs himself won the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year Award and was nominated for European footballer of the year.

The Player of the Year award came amid stiff opposition from team-mates Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Cristiano Ronaldo and Edwin van der Sar as well as Liverpool's Steven Gerrard.

if he didn't make the shortlist then nobody could vote for him... but the 2007 winner, joe calzaghe, was nominated.

Report Darren Lamb December 8, 2009 11:11 AM GMT
... and it was for his achievements in 2008.
Report DHB December 8, 2009 3:35 PM GMT
Aye, imaginethe votes he'd get in that next year ;-)
My point was that it doesn't mean much to get a parochial award.
