  • Andre Villas-Boas on whether Gareth Bale should be player of the year...

    I think so. It would be truly deserved, but it is not up to me to make that consideration. But you have to recognise that he is having a tremendous season. So he is probably a contender, he is for us, hopefully he can get there.

  • I can not believe that Juan Mata is not one of the options! Between Mata, Suarez and RVP for me. Aguero is a brilliant player but has not had a great season so far... surprised he is in your list never mind that people are voting for him.

  • Jack Wilshere?! If you had to put an Arsenal player in, at least be sensible and make it Cazorla.

  • Agree that Mata should be an option. Aguero hampered by injury/rotation earlier in season...... did my Top 10 a month ago see Bale has moved up list since then.....MC

  • Has to be bale - no one has produced more edge of your seat moments and truly 'special' goals this season!

  • i think for sheer range of goals he has scored, it has to be Suarez. i'm not sure there's another player in the PL who could have scored that goal against Newcastle.

  • It has got to be Bale after the fantastic goals he has been scoring just a shame he is not English

  • Bale is just coming on song and may shade it but Van Persie has been doing it for over a year now both scoring and assists and will have medals to show for it.

  • With over 500 votes cast, Gareth Bale is out in front as your choice for the player of the season so far. Luis Suarez is is second and Robin van Persie in third. The poll remains open though and will do until tomorrow, so things could still change...

  • Gareth Bale - Typical half a season syndrome like Valencia last year. RVP and Suarez have been far better. People exaggerating #Crazy
  • The poll remains open and will do until tomorrow afternoon. Currently Gareth Bale is your choice, out in front with 274 votes - or 35 per cent of you. Keep the votes coming...

  • It will be not sportsmanship if Bale will grab it ahead of Van Persie, Spurs are out in all medals so scoring goals for funny is not like scoring for medals like as van Persie scores, and Man United is still competing in all competitions!

  • How can Juan Mata not be an option? He's been the only consistent performer Chelsea have had this season.
