True enough, but VVD is universally accepted as being the best player in the league this year - accept for some bloke sitting in a mud hut in Alice Springs. Who else would even be a contender?
Who's sitting in a mud hut in Alice Springs?

Again, there are plenty of people continuously lauded as being amazing superstars in the sport they play, yet in reality they are average plodders with special physical traits that make them stand out more.

Van Dijk isn't an average plodder. He is an excellent centre half. Can we wait until he has played for 3-5 years at the top level before anointing him as the GOAT ffs?
Wasn't saying he is, more an explanation that plenty of people can look absolutely amazing due to special traits, but at others they aren't as good (Peter Crouch for instance always looks amazing when the ball is in the air..)

That’s too long a wait. We live in the age of social media and you must make bold statements or risk being irrelevant.

Seriously though, yes of course he has to do it for a stretch of seasons. I have no doubt he will though. Sure, his form will drop at times, he’ll make the occasional howler etc, but my bet is if he stays at Liverpool he'll go down as one of the great PL defenders, perhaps even the GOAT

What a crazy few pages.

VVD is all class and to suggest otherwise is folly. He should win PoTY.

Title is out of our hands now. Tough to see how we can win it from here. Confidence seems shattered.

POTY has been worthless since Giggs won it imo.

Just a popularity contest, clubs start campaigning before Christmas.
PFA POTY yep, considering they vote for it in like February/March and plenty more football is yet to be played
