    With the season on the brink of finishing, and due to popular demand, we're going to have end-of-season awards for the first time since 2009.The plan is to eventually have the voting for the awards in a separate sub-forum but before we can do that we need to establish what categories we need. After we have the categories, we'll begin the nominations then the polls will be made in a sub-forum and voting will commence after the season ends.

    The current categories
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Player of the Year
    Worst Player
    Young Player of the Year
    Goalkeeper of the Year
    Defender of the Year
    Midfielder of the Year
    Striker of the Year
    Manager of the Year
    Worst Manager
    Team of the Year (11 different individuals would have to be selected)
    Signing of the Season
    Worst Signing of the Season
    Overachievers
    Underachievers
    Goal of the Season
    Save of the Season


    Feel free to add any suggestions - from what other categories we need to how nominations should take place! Perhaps include an award or two for those who regularly watch La Liga or the Italian Serie A? :beard:

    Awesome!

    I think those categories are sufficient. No glaring ommissions from what I can see. Maybe something like Blunder of the Season (or something equivalent), for example: sacking of Mick McCarthy; Liverpool's approach to the Suarez situation. But I don't think that's necessary like the other awards.

    I would personally love to see stuff done for the major European leagues (and maybe the Football League?), but I'd only feel comfortable commenting on the German/Italian leagues. Maybe just a general European thread so I can express my absolute awe and love for Andrea Pirlo somewhere?

    Not a lot of people who watch European football on here but a sizeable amount, I think we can come up with an award or two. Although I fear it'd be a Barca/Real Madrid sweep!

    Perhaps an award that asks for the best European player bar Ronaldo and Messi? :beard:

    I think it'll have to be otherwise it's always going to be Messi and if not him Ronaldo.

    But guys, if we vote on best forward in Europe, we can get another Ronaldo vs Messi debate. We've not had one of them in a while.

    Can we make it clear that the signings have to have been made in the 11/12 season, ergo Carroll doesn't come into things - else we'll have a spamfest about dates/seasons and so forth.

    Crumble of the year is in danger of every nomination being Kenny Dalglish though?

    If Spurs finish outside of the top four, I'd say they're a definite front-runner for that award, considering where they were a few months ago.
