Who do you guys think deserve the awards, and what about Manager of the year?
+1
Player of the year: Suarez
Young player of the year: Hazard
Manager of the year: Brendan Rodgers

@Aaron, Bear, LastGrasp

Yea, I agree with you guys, although I would love Sturridge to win YPTY, since he has been better stats and consistency wise.

But Hazard has more hype so I expect him to win it.

This is not to say Hazard won't deserve it though if he wins, they have both been good.
+1
PFA PTY - Suarez hands down. No one else deserves it over him.

YPTY - Probably Hazard.

Manager of the year would be Rodgers 100% if he wins the league.
+2
@BlackAna Take in mind Sturridge is a striker Hazard is a midfeilder playing on the wing so stats in terms of goals shouldn't be a factor, aside from Suarez Hazard is one of the few players in the world that can turn defenders inside out and make players like Zabaleta fall flat on his ass. He has been a match winner for us on so many occasions this season not just with goals but literally making things happen when our team runs out of ideas, I dont think its really up for debate.
+1
@Kaiba

It is closer than you think, Sturridge has also won us a bunch of matches single handedly, and has also been injured a lot throughout this season.

Sturridge = 20 goals, 7 assists
Hazard = 14 goals, 7 assists

Hazard has only missed one match, Sturridge has missed 8!

People tend to forget Sturridge because he is being overshadowed by Suarez. He is having one incredible season.

But like I said I expect Hazard to win because of the hype, and like you said he is better technically, very gifted. But stats wise Sturridge does it for me.
Did you not read the part were i said Hazard is a midfeilder and Sturridge is playing as a Striker, you cant compare those stats, Its about who has been the better player for their team, Sure sturridge won matches single handedly for you but I dont think its much comparison to the amount of matches Hazard won for us, considering our strikers without Hazard our attack would be in shambles
When you have a striker on like suarez 29 goals almost every pass to him =assist
Yes I read that part.

Sturridge is a striker, yet he has the same assists as Hazard and 6 more goals, and has played 8 less games. Without him Suarez would get frustrated in some matches, like he was last season.

It is closer than you think, they both deserve to win it.

Games where a Sturridge goal or assist were crucial in a Liverpool win or draw

Stoke (H) - winning goal

Aston Villa (A) - winning goal

Manchester United (H) - winning goal

Swansea (A) - goal helped us draw

Sunderland (A) - a goal and 2 assists in 3-1 win

Newcastle (A) - goal to draw the match

Everton (A) - last minute header to give us a draw

Stoke (A) - assist to Suarez for winner, and goal at the end.

Aston Villa (H) - goal to start comeback in 2-2 draw.

Everton (H) - 2 goals to seal the win

West Brom (A) - goal to earn us a draw

Fulham (A) - assist for Coutinho to draw, penalty for Gerrard to win.

Swansea (H) - 2 goals and one assist in 4-3 win.

Sunderland (H) - winning goal
+5
you cannot take into account the amount of games sturridge missed, if that were the case Ramsey should be YPOTY based on his goals per game ratio this season as a midfeilder. Its not close at all, the only players who have been better then hazard are Suarez and Toure
@Aaron, the results are announced before the end of the season.

Anyway, Sturridge has an advantage because he's English. But whoever wins out of Hazard and him would fully deserve it.
Sturridge to win if Liverpool win the leagues + if he bang goals in vs Chelsea
Hazard to win if Chelsea wn the league
+2
@Kaiba

I am taking into account the matches he missed, not because of the goals per game ratio, but to show that even with 8 matches missed, he has the same assists as Hazard, and 6 more goals.

Sure without Hazard Chelsea would have hardly scored this season, but he should been doing more. Mata did A LOT more for Chelsea in the last 2 seasons. If Hazard had Mata like stats, then he would be nailed on for YPOTY.

Mata 12/13 (16 goals 20 assists all comps)
Hazard 13/14 (16 goals 7 assists all comps)

4 of Hazards goals in the epl by the way were from the spot. Lampard could have easily taken them. So if we want to be even fairer and we exclude penalty goals.

Sturridge would have 20 goals and 7 assists in 26 apps.
Hazard would have 10 goals and 7 assists in 33 apps.

We can also look at how many games they influence with their goals/assists (how spread out their influence is, do they score/assist a lot in one match then go missing for a while, or is it spread out)

Sturridge epl goal spread: Scored at least one goal, in 19 individual matches.

Hazard epl goal spread: Scored at least one goal, in 10 individual matches.

-----

Hazard assist spread: At least one assist in 7 individual matches.
Sturridge assist spread: At least one assist in 6 individual matches.

-----

Sturridge goal/assist spread: At least a goal or assist in 20 individual matches.

Hazard goal/assist spread: At least a goal or assist in 14 individual matches.

-----

So stats wise Sturridge is more consistent. You can compare here:

http://www.whoscored.com/Players/33404/Fixtures/Eden-Hazard
http://www.whoscored.com/Players/23736/Fixtures/Daniel-Sturridge

Anyway like I said I still expect Hazard to win it, but it would be deserved whoever wins it between the two.
+3
I've watched Hazard put chances on a plate for others to miss throughout this season - last time i checked he was leading the league in chance creation - but i guess he could do more.

Maybe round the keeper before passing, then maybe, just maybe, someone will score :P
+1
i thought sturridge is already 24?and he's turning 25 this year

Ramsey will win the YPOTY, cos hes british
@Ana, Whoscored and Squawka posted this earlier this month:

https://twitter.com/WhoScored/status/452092144036372481

What i based my earlier comment on, but chance creation can be dissected so many ways (minutes, key passes, open play) like the article you posted.
Norwich's remain games for the season, and also being winless for the past 3 game and just above relegation zone. Harsh ending to their season.

Liverpool-home
Man United-away
Chelsea-away
Arsenal-home
+4
What will you bet for Suarez to score vs Ruddy tomorrow?
Isn't the match 3 days away...
+5
Suarez doesn't need a much to score on Rudy/Norwich.
He has FIFA 14.
Ohh I forgot its Friday lol. Well Sunday*
7-0 lfc win, and also lfc reaches the century mark goals scored in the league. a few more goals later coming to end of the season, and lfc will hold the record for most goals in the epl season !

YNWA !!
+1
Ruddy should just say he's having a stomach ache, sit at home and watch The Looney Tunes Show TBH.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27062091

Crystal Palace result should not stand, say Welsh club, Cardiff City.

"The document, sent by club lawyers to the Premier League, alleges Palace boss Tony Pulis knew sporting director Iain Moody was trying to obtain their starting line-up before the game."

"The club say they have proof Moody succeeded. Pulis declined to comment when contacted by the BBC, although Palace previously denied the claims."


What do you guys make of this? Do you think Palace should be docked 3 points if they're found guilty? Or a more severe punishment be handed out? Either way Cardiff look like they're going down.
+1
So what if he obtained the starting XI that doesn't ensure him a win whatsoever. It would be stupid to dock 3 points of Palace but maybe a fine or something.
+2
If you know a starting 11( possibly formation) of a team and you know the strengths and weakness of the players, then you can predict how they are gone play, which means you can use a tactic to counter it. It doesn't give a lot of advantage, but it gives a little bit of an advantage, which is unfair.
+5
This is juicy. Let's write a drama series about it.

I don't really know though... If it's explicitly stated in the rulebook that this warrants a 3 point dock, then by all means it may be necessary. But if not, I think that's be harsh to Palace, who probably would have won the game anyway.
Since the FA introduced goal line technology, has there been any required use for it? I can't remember a time when there was such a close call, or the refs got it initially wrong, where the technology had to come into play.
The reason is because the referee has a watch on his arm that beeps when a ball crosses either goal line, the reason you haven't seen any mistakes is because there can't be any. At least on a human level.
+3
Well what I really mean is, have there been any really close calls this season? I haven't seen much in the way of something like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HV4nc_sjW9Y
I think that unless you are watching the match in which it happens, you won't notice it. In previous years, the incident would make the post match analysis and papers, and so it would spread to a wider audience. Now there is no incident for everyone to debate after the match. I remember watching a match recently in which there was a close call and very quickly it was determined a no goal. Replays showed the decision was correct, and there was no mention of it after.

I have one question though, this may seem stupid. How on earth does the technology know if it's a ball that has crossed the line? What if the keeper scrambles to get the ball, his head goes over while he's grabbing it, and GOAL! pops up on the referees watch? How does it work...?
+1
i'm surprise soo many people didn't notice that the technology has been use so many time this season.even in the 1st week,the chelsea match(against i don't remember) the technology is required(hope a chelsea fan can confirm this)

but this is so far the closest call though

you're welcome. :P
+2
Ah, this was what I was looking for. Thanks Lutheaven.

I also recall a game Swans had where there was a close call but can't remember who they were playing.
I recall it being used in our opener against Villa. Villa had a shot off the post about 10 minutes in and it rolled across the line and back into play. Imminently, the special goal line replay came up and showed that it was no goal. I was really excited about that moment, it was a fresh new season with new technology :)

90 minutes later I wanted to cry but that's another story.
+1
I assume this gonna be in the world cup also because I remember Lampard's goal in the last world cup causing a lot of media reaction.
+1
Yes goal line tech is in Brazil.
http://youtu.be/eB3zw9o2cYo

Similar method but different company. FA uses Hawkeye ltd. and FIFA will use GoalControl
+1
Closest use of it was for Holtby's shot against a team a few weeks ago. From all angles it looked like it was over the line but using the technology, a tiny bit of the ball was hanging over the edge of the line so the goal didn't count.
Good I would hate to see a world cup winning goal not awarded.
