De Gea - shit at the start of the season, got better but is still one of those keepers who is amazing at shot stopping and little else. needs to bulk up, have a better presence in his box and learn how to catch a *bleep*ing cross. Would Stekelenburg have been more worth the money? 6/10
Lindegaard - good backup, won't ever break into the first team though. much like kuszczak/foster. 6/10
Nothing to say about Amos, Kuszczak shoulda left (he has 2 saves in the EPL 20 seasons thing too ).
Rafael - I love the way he plays, aggressive and determined. Needs to wisen up still and concentrate better at times, but will probably become United's new Gary Neville. 7/10
Fabio - Didn't feature as much this term. Will do well on loan next year.
Jones - Great at the start of the season, his versatility was his downfall though. He'll come good next season. 7/10
Evans - Much better this season, one of United's best performers. Glad he's turned around his shitshow. 8/10
Smalling - faded from his brilliant cameos last season but is still developing nicely. Solid. 7/10
Ferdinand - Did a Lampard this season; came back when everyone wrote him off. Really good, particularly in Vidic's absence. 8/10
Vidic - unfortunate he's injured.
Evra - doesn't deserve to be captain really. at times a liability this season, at times a brick-wall. no longer in the pantheon of great left backs, he was ok. 6.5/10
Giggs - uncertain about his renewed contract for next year. Does better in centre midfield than on the wing now. Either is incredibly frustrating or awe-inspiring to watch. 6/10
Young - good acquisition, probably not worth the 18m. Injured a while this season but yeah, he was pretty good. 7/10
Nani - not as good as last season where he wrecked everything before him but still played pretty well. usurped by Valencia's great run of form late on this season though. 7.5/10
Valencia - United's best attacking player this season probably. Consistent, strong, quick, enthusiastic, great crosser of the ball. Only qualm is he's a bit one dimensional but that doesn't matter too much when you're as good at what you do as he is. 8.5/10
Park - didn't do shit this season. probably will be sold.
Cleverley - great at the start of the season then got overhyped and injured. Want to see him play with Carrick next season. 6.5/10
Anderson - see Cleverley. 6.5/10
Carrick - good. 7.25/10
Scholes - ridiculously good, incredible that he's been the one inspiring United's charges since his return. 8/10
Pogba - would like him to stay. Great cameo against Stoke.
Fletcher - absent for most this season. Scored against City though. Dunno if he can come back to form following such a terrible illness.
Rooney - consistent goals with inconsistent performances. Can't really fault a striker who's scoring though. Stayed out of the limelight for the most part this season and his new hairdo seems to have cooled his temper. 7.5/10
Welbeck - great at the start of the season, somewhat overrated at times. Has great awareness, just needs to add a lethal touch to his game. 7/10
Hernandez - played well this season even if he's featured sparingly. Creates a nice headache for Ferguson regarding his strike force. 7/10
Berbatov - hardly played at all but when he has, seized the opportunity with both hands. Really wish he played more, buncha bullshit when people say United play too quickly to suit his style considering the midfield partnership for the 2nd half of this season has been Carrick+Scholes, two of the most patient players in the league. 7/10
Michael Owen - player most undeserving of the number 7 ever.

Sczesny. He's been solid but perhaps not outstanding. His command and dominance in the air though is definitely something every Arsenal fan must be thrilled about after the days of average Al and flapianski 7.5
Sagna. One of the best right backs in the league and he's become so good in the air this season, don't know if anyone has noticed this but every time the keeper takes a goal kick towards the right he gets on the end of it. We really felt his absence when he was out for 3-4 months 8
Vermaelen. Another one that was injured for a couple of months. Aside from his performance at QPR, he's been really solid and as well contributes his fair share of goals. 8
Koscielny. Our best defender in my opinion, he just keeps improving every season and he's become so reliable and crucial for us. 8.5
Gibbs. He's injury prone but a great prospect when he gets a decent run of games in the team. Needs to work out his defensive game a bit but very effective going forward. 7
Santos. Another injury disrupting one of our defenders' season. Thought he did well before getting injured but he's been suspect defensively on a number of occasions. 6.5
Jenkinson. Solid back up for Sagna and certainly cant fault his determination. He obviously loves the club but he should probably sort his hair for next season. 6.5
Djourou. Never been a fan of him and I can't say he looks like he will ever be a top premiership team center back. 6
Mertesacker. Wasn't too confident about him when he joined especially concerning his pace but he's proved to be reliable back up for Verms and Kos. 7
Song. Loses the ball too often for my liking but He's been so good in contributing to our attacking play. 7
Arteta. I think he just oozes class and he always looks so composed. He's been indispensable in terms of helping the midfield control games. Scored some cracking goals as well. 8
Rosicky. I don't know what drug he's been taking but I really hope he doesn't stop now. Our most creative player by far and looks so determined in getting the ball back and pressing. 8
Ramsey. Not a great season for Aaron, perhaps not helped by being played on the right wing too often but he really has to do better. Sort of improved in the last couple of games. 5.5
Benayoun. Very useful player in most games but at 31 I'm not sure if it's worth signing him permanently from Chelsea. 7
Coquelin. He's looked like a great little player in the few games he's played for us. Very versatile as well, would love to see more of him next season. 7
Diaby. So so frustrating to see what's happening to him because he's got so much talent. Can see his career fading at this rate though.
Frimpong. Very raw and unlucky with injuries but great attitude and definitely a talented young player. 5.5
Van Persie. Fantastic, Crucial, over dependence on him.. Nothing I can say that everyone else doesn't already know. 9
Walcott. Most inconsistent player in the history of football. He's proved to be a good finisher this season, unfortunately the rest has been very disappointing for me. 5.5
Gervinho. Started pretty well but he's been awful since the ACN. I'll wait until next season before ruling him out completely though. 5
Arshavin. Don't know what the *bleep* happened with him. He's on par with our other average wingers though. 5
Chamberlain. Undoubted massive potential, still very inconsistent though which is not surprising considering his age and the step up he's had to make from League One. Very excited about him though. 6.5
Chamakh. bah why are you still here? The guy seems to me completely disinterested and he's as useful as an empty box of Pringles. 4
In conclusion, Podolski can't come soon enough. And a couple more players would do very nicely (M'Vila and Belhanda please).

1= Gerald Cid
10 = 38 SKD vs West Ham performances
Jussi Jaaskelainen - Hard to be unbiased, one of my favourite players ever, but not good enough at times and now his shot stopping's starting to fade from excellent to good it highlights his other problems of organising and controlling the box. 5.5
Adam Bogdan - Shite in his first few games, at fault massively in games that completely *bleep*ed over our GD and we're paying for that now, so that's brought his rating down. However, bounced back excellently and has made some great saves, including, as ridiculous as it sounds his save to stop Atkinson having an easy decision against QPR. Still work to do, catching and freekicks don't seem near the standard required, but with Barber I'm sure they'll improve. 5.5
Gary Cahill - Wasn't at fault for much even when we were conceding 5 a game, had to cover at times all 4 of the rest of the back 5 and it showed. Left with grace as well. 7
Zat Knight - Really *bleep*ing shite 2
David Wheater - Should have started the season next to Cahill, finally came in and got suspended twice, but never really had bad games. Since Cahill has left him and Rim have developed a good partnership and Wheater must be blocking about 5 shots a game. 6.5
Rim Team - Needs to start lifting weights as he could probably get bashed aside by Peter Crouch. Other than that, good reading of the game, composed, doesn't give much room and blocks well, and tbf Wheater has the strength for two men. 6.5
Dedryck Boyata - Not terrible every game 2.5
Paul Robinson - Slow *bleep* who along with Knight was at fault for about 75% of the goals we conceded in the first 10 or so games. 1.5
Marcos Alonso - Played well for 60 minutes against Blackburn, didn't against anyone else, but tbf he's been injured and he's young. 2.5
Gretar Steinsson - Against right footed left wingers. 3
Against left footed left wingers. 7 So we'll give him a 5
Sam Ricketts - Very good in most games, offers a threat going forward, covers a lot of positions. Odd bad game but every one of our players have had them. 7
Tyrone Mears - Fairly sure it was Zat Knight who broke his leg, so for making Zat Knight feel bad about himself 5
Nigel Reo Coker - Works ridiculously hard no matter how Coyle chooses to play him, scored a few big goals, passing good and has had to cover for Davies and Pratley being poofters in the tackle very often. Joint best player of the season. 7.5
Mark Davies - When he plays attacking midfield. 8
When he plays right wing, central midfielder or wherever else Coyle lands the dart. 4
A nice round 6
Fabrice Muamba - Should have played much more prior to Paddy's day, was one of our best whenever he played and was vital in quite a few he did actually get the chance in. But crap shot and while not crap at passing very slow at it. 7
Darren Pratley - Has played to an adequate level recently when he's been needed, still *bleep*ing woeful at the start though. 3
Chris Eagles - Against Championship level fullbacks and Jose Enrique 10
Against the majority of fullbacks who can defend 1
Martin Petrov - Since November has been our most creative, scariest, track backingest player going, his delivery is top notch, and his experience is obvious in terms of knowing when to just bladder it against the fullback for a corner. Was still a lazy *bleep* before then though. 7.5
Ryo Miyaichi - *bleep*ing fast and given no service that allows him to use it. Then again he's had games where he's been marshalled far too easily cause all he does is push and run. Has made an impact in a few games though. 5.5
Sean Davis - A story mothers tell to their children to keep them from daring to tackle Lucas.
Lee Chung Yong - We'd be safe if he'd been fit.
Stu Holden - We'd be top half if he'd been fit
Ivan Klasnic - Tricky one, doesn't work starting in a 4-4-2 or ever in a 4-5-1 so can only ever really be used as a sub in a 4-4-2. Still popped up with goals that have been massively vital. Would prefer him running through on goal than anyone who I've seen play for us except Anelka and Ricketts. 6
SKD - Was frankly shite for most games at the start, refs whistled every time he breathed on an opponent while they where allowed to perform a whole range of wrestling moves on him with no repercussion. Even past that, touch was gone. Somehow it's come back, best player for April and has been very useful before then. Anyone else would get a 5, but it's SKD so he gets a 6.
David Ngog - He's like a good keeper, solid, reliable, unspectacular and a knack for keeping the ball out of the net. Massively improved my opinion of him and put in top class performances against Liverpool, Arsenal and Blackburn. If he'd got 10 goals this season he'd be on an 8.5 but he's got 3 and I've not seen any of 'em live so it's a 6
Tuncay - Shit striker, worse on the wing. 2
Marvin Sordell - Would prefer him to come on to change a game than N'Gog, Coyle disagrees. Surely will get more involved next year.
Robbie Blake - Apparently he's there to keep the spirits of the lads high, it doesn't seem to be working.

David De Gea - Started off shakily against City and West Brom but grew in confidence after that. Come really good since Lindegaard got injured and can only get better. - 8/10.
Anders Lindegaard - More than an able deputy for De Gea as he proved when De Gea was dropped/rested. Had a couple of dodgy games and injury has hindered him but a good first full season. - 7/10.
Ben Amos - Only made a handful of appearances but didn't really do anything wrong. Seemed confident and will grow in stature. Probably will move away eventually, deserves more at his age. - 5/10.
Tomasz Kuszczak - Never had a chance this season, but seems to have done well at Watford, hope he gets a good move. - N/A.
Rafael - Standard season for Rafa, excellent going forward, decent defensively but usual laps of concentration which have cost us. Still plenty of time to rectify that but needs to sort it out sooner rather than later. - 6.5/10.
Chris Smalling - Had an excellent start to the season, chipped in with a few goals and was solid until Jonny Evans took over. Made a mistake last night but still young and will continue to improve. - 7/10.
Phil Jones - Similar to Smalling, had an impressive start to the season, potentially our best performer going forward from RB and had some games in CM where he was also excellent. Seems to have burnt out towards the end of the season but still an impressive debut season. - 7.5/10.
Rio Ferdinand - Poeple have written him off stupidly, might have lost his pace but his experience and calmness have been crucial with Vidic out. Has been superb this season and long may it continue. - 8.5/10.
Jonny Evans - What a season he's had. Come back from the dead na proved people wrong. Been brilliant alongside Rio and could be Vidic's partner next season, barely put a foot wrong since the 6-1, missed him last night. - 9/10.
Nemanja Vidic - Real shame about him, started the season his usual solid self but ended too early to judge him properly. Hope he's back soon. - N/A.
Patrice Evra - Unusual season, you can see he's lost a yard or two of pace, and it's cost us at times when he's gone forward. On the flip side, he is great going forward and if we sign a LB he should be converted to back up winger. - 6.5/10.
Fabio - Amazing we're sending out a lad on loan for 'experience' when he started the CL final last year. Not had much of a chance this season, seems better defensively than his twin but not as good going forward. Hope his loan spell at Benfica/Feyenoord helps him. - 5/10.
Antonio Valencia - Brilliant season. Started slowly but really came good before Christmas and has been our main threat since. He just gets to the byline and gets the ball in, and has got many assists to his name, as well as a few goals. Impressive. - 8.5/10.
Nani - On and off season, started really well but when Valencia came back he was ousted. Came good again before an injury and hasn't been the same since, still frustrating but can be our main outlet. - 7/10.
Paul Scholes - Didn't think I'd have to write this man's name down but he's been superb since coming back. Chipped with goals, passing as good as ever and amazingly his tackling seems to have improved! Could get another year from him but personally I'd prefer to look towards the youth. - 8/10.
Michael Carrick - Bossman! Been brilliant this season after a sticky few years. Ended his goal drought and his passing has been as good as it was when he first signed. Controlled games alongside Scholesy and has added consistency to his game. - 9/10.
Tom Cleverley - It's a shame he's suffered injuries this season as he started off so well in a fluid side. Quick passing is what we've lacked and it's one thing Cleverley had in abundance. Hope he comes back strong next season. - 6.5/10.
Anderson - As above, started off well after a good end to last season, was an integral part of a front six that was scoring goals for fun in August/September. But dogged by injuries he's had his season ended early, with a run in the side I do still believe he'll fulfill his potential here. - 6.5/10.
Park Ji-Sung - Sigh. He had little technical talent anyway, but this year he seems to have lost some pace and energy and after being a big game player for years he wasn't involved in big games much. Goals against Arsenal & Liverpool are standard, but showed last night energy isn't enough for a big game anymore. Hopefully shifted out in the summer. - 5/10.
Ryan Giggs - Hmmm, club legend but performances have dipped this season. Crucial goals and assists at points in the run-in have glossed over it but the CM role doesn't suit him at all. Has one-year left before he'll retire probably, poor season by his standards. - 6/10.
Ashley Young - Good first season for him, as many others did, started off so well and continued his form into the new year, with big goals and assists in big games. Bad reputation in recent weeks but happy with his overall contribution. - 7.5/10.
Darren Fletcher - Such bad luck for the lad. Such an important player and did well playing with the illness. Sounds as if he may retire, hope he gets well either way. - N/A.
Wayne Rooney - Started off the season like a traction engine, goal after goal, hattrick after hattrick, before in true Rooney style he hit a drought. But since the new year he's banged them in without particularly playing well, but a crucial player for us. - 9/10.
Javier Hernandez - Hasn't had proper chances this year due to Welbeck's emergence, but has scored goals when called upon, doesn't offer much to general team play though. - 6.5/10.
Danny Welbeck - What a revelation. Didn't know how much his loan spell would help but got 2 goals in our opening 3 games. Hasn't carried on such goalscoring form but chipped in nicely and struck a great partnership up front with Rooney. - 8/10.
Dimitar Berbatov - Not had the chance he deserves sat behind the other three, but always performed when called upon. Scored 2 against Blackburn, a hattrick against Wigan and a cheeky backheel against Fulham in succession but seems as if he's on his way out. - 6/10.
Michael Owen - 3 goals in 4 games shows he could score goals when we called him in the Carling Cup. Another who will probably leave, good luck to him. - 5/10.
Macheda - Not had a chance at QPR, performed well in the Carling Cup with 1 goal, hopefully gets a proper loan chance next season.
De Laet - Unimpressive for Norwich by all accounts but done well for our reserves lately, probably will get a move away in the summer.
Bebe - Gutted he picked up such a bad injury in pre-season, but he's back now and seems to be doing Ok. Interesting to see how he develops.
Brady - Had a decent season at Hull apparently, pacey, tricky and a decent cross.
King - Two loan spells, injuries ruined his time at Gladbach but seems to have been a decent squad player at Hull. Very fast but needs to work on his shooting.
Tunnicliffe - Poeple think he's got a big future here and very solid season at Peterborough by the sounds of it. Hope he keeps developing.
Norwood - Been very good for Coventry, shame he's in a team that's been relegated, hope he can keep developing, has an outside chance at United, been given a contract extension.
Reckon FIFAleachy Casual and jespomo could probably help me on a few of those.
Gibson - Never had a chance early season with wanting a move away. Seems to have gone well for him at Everton.
Diouf - Another who didn't get a chance but played well against Leeds in the cup. Done brilliantly at Hannover, good luck to him.
The Keane's - Michael & Will have both made appearances this season, Will in the Premier League. Hopefully both get loans next season, Will could have a big future, very good finisher if you give him a chance.
Pogba - Had the odd chance this season and looked comfortable in the midfield. Hope he stays but the signs at the moment aren't great.
Morrison - Real shame his attitude let him down. Was on the cusp of the first team squad and made some impressive cameos in the cup. Seems like his attitude has let him down at West Ham too.
Fryers - Surprised he played a few games this season but appears to be progressing well as a left-back. Quite strong and tricky, could have a future here.
Cole - Made 1 cameo against Leeds and had bags of pace, been very impressive in the reserves.
Petrucci & Lingard - Neither made first team appearances but have been top performers in the reserves. Petrucci has superb vision and Lingard is a tricky little customer. Could see more of them next season.

Brady's like you said really, was such a good player in the first half of his loan spell. Then he seemed to fizzle out, but recently he started playing well again towards the end of the season. I wouldn't be suprised if we enquired in him again on loan. As far as I know he got his contract didn't he?
As for King, he's a physical player, he's not all there technically. Not a fan of his from what I've seen, very poor first touch too.
"Are you crazy?" "No sir, I'm a dreamer."

David Marshall: Been pretty solid this season, only one notable error vs Pompey that cost us. Vastly improved his ability under the high ball and actually feel safe with him in goal now. 7.5
Tom Heaton: Only played in the cups but will be remembered for his penalty saves against Palace and the performance at Wembley. Looking to leave apparently in the summer, would like him to stay but for now wouldn't get past Marshall. 7
Elliot Parish: Hasn't played. Signed permanently, probably will replace Heaton. Can't rate.
Kevin McNaughton: Super Kev hasn't been so super this season tbf. Looks the most likely to make mistakes and is always targeted by opposition wingers. Can't fault his effort and has had his good games but not at his high standards this term IMO. 6.5
Andrew Taylor: Nice to have a left back that I can actually trust after Naylor being shite last season. Gets about up and down the wing and looks fairly solid defensively. Good if not unremarkable. 7
Mark Hudson: Come on leaps and bounds with his partnership with Turner. Some great performances especially against Liverpool. Plus he can score from 68 yards. 8
Anthony Gerrard: Fallen away since Turner came in. Didn't look particularly solid when he was playing, deservedly dropped. Dunno how he had such a good season for Hull tbh. 6
Paul Quinn: Hardly played but always got stuck in but still a bit shaky and not match fit. Can't really rate him.
Lee Naylor: Had such a crap season last time, anything he did would be an improvement. When played has actually done quite well. 6.5
Darcy Blake: Big fan of Darcy, gets about and always looking to get forward. Been pretty good at the back too whenever I've seen him. 6.5
Ben Turner: Brilliant. Made our defence actually formidable in the second half of the season. 9
Filip Kiss: Started the season well but lost his place when McPhail regained fitness. Signed him permanently as well. Raw talent but looks like he could be a talent for us. 7
Peter Whittingham: Built the side around him and it looks to have been a very good idea. Bulked up a bit for more central play and pulls our creative strings. Premiership ready. 9
Don Cowie: Possibly my favourite Malky signing. Not convinced with him out wide every game but gets everywhere like a bad rash, he's a bloody machine. 8
Craig Conway: Pretty much our only proper winger. Scored some important goals but we needed him to be better this season overall, need him to be decisive and not so hesitant. Unfortunate injury, could have done with some extra pace off the bench in the playoffs. 7
Liam Lawrence: Came in to give us a bit more depth and now due to Conways injury is our right winger for the playoffs. Not been spectacular but popped up with the goal at Barnsley and played well against Palace so could prove important for us. 6.5
Aron Gunnarsson: Been great in the holding role for us, shows a lot of character and determination. Gives the ball away a bit much I feel but has been utilised very well, although would like to have seen more goals from his long throws (even if his first two at West Ham went out for goal kicks). 7.5
Kadeem Harris: Hasn't made his debut yet so can't judge. Fast as *bleep* apparently.
Stephen McPhail: Won his place back since January and has done well I think. Nothing wrong with a central mid who plays the ball along the floor. Has dropped out recently though to accommodate Mason and can't really manage 90 minutes anymore it seems. 7 but is an absolute hero anyway for still playing after what he's been through.
Joe Ralls: Another exciting midfielder from our academy. Exciting prospect but still very raw. Wonder goal vs Hull was his highlight. 6.5
Kenny Miller: Puts in such a shift for a little bloke playing the lone striker role, but not enough goals. Went on a couple of barren runs which isn't good enough tbh. Still been important for us though. 7.5
Robert Earnshaw: Heart said yes but head now says no. Definitely a signing by the owners for some fan respect, judging by the fact that Malky won't play him. Was worth a punt I guess. 6 but will go to 10 when he scores the winner at Wembley
Rudy Gestede: Got potential but I really don't think he's shown that much of it tbh. Was worried that he'd be a bit of a soft touch but tbf he gets his hands dirty and doesn't moan about it. Signed a new deal so will see what he can do next season. 6.5
Jon Parkin: oh goodness me he's still here. Will probably be after a wage hike due to the pasty tax.
Joe Mason: What a great first season. £250k from Plymouth and has more goals than Miller. Pace and skill to burn and a lot of composure. Will go a long way this lad. Signed a new deal too which is fantastic. 8.5
Overall: Can't believe we got playoffs again with the squad size we have. Malkys done a great job and has made the club feel brand new. If he gets us promoted then he'll be a club legend.
also sorry to anyone who actually bothers reading this post, did it on my lunch break on my phone so bound to be spelling errors lol.
My debut book "The Test" is out now on the Kindle store!

quote ToonamiDo you know if Stech is normally any good? He had an absolute stormer against us when we drew 2-2 at home with Yeovil earlier in the season but I'm not sure if he's one of those keepers who has the occasional world class performance and then is below average for the rest of the time.
I'd like us to look into the possibility of signing him should Tommy Lee get sold.

Howard - Solid all season. The best keeper we could probably hope for at our level. 7.5
Mucha - Only played in the cups but was at fault against Chelsea and has always looked awful. 4
Heitinga - Has been superb this season and one of our best players. Our best centre back by a distance imo. 8.5
Distin - A very good season despite his mistake against Liverpool. The best season he has had for us. 7.5
Jagielka - Probably his worst season at the club and there have been times where he has looked poor. However his last few games for us have been impressive. 7
Baines - A slightly worse season than last year but he's still one of the top 5 left backs in the world. 9
Neville - His leadership is missed when he doesn't start and he has been alright for most of the season. 6.5
Hibert - See Neville without the leadership part. 6.5
Duffy - Looked really good when he played due to injuries but only played a couple of times. Has a bright future ahead of him. 6
Fellaini - One of the best midfielders in the country. God. 9
Osman - Missed when he isn't playing and has looked good for most of the season. 7.5
Pienaar - Absolutely fantastic since he has came back. Can't fault him. 9
Drenthe - Lots of assists and goals but has let us down so many times. 5
Gibson - Adds balance to our midfield and we've looked much better since he joined. 7.5
Rodwell - Had spells where he looked like the player we want him to be and other times he has looked like a championship player. 5.5
Barkley - Hasn't played much due to a lack of confidence and the staff spending the season building up his fitness. Looked pretty good despite being 18 and missing a year due to his leg break. Should see more of him next season. 6.5
Gueye - Hit and miss. Was fantastic against Sunderland but was pathetic in the semi. Not good enough to be starting yet. 5.5
Coleman - Defenders have worked him out. 5
Cahill - Was awful for most of the season but has shown signs of his old self towards the end. Not good enough to be starting for us anymore though. 6 because I love the man.
Jelavic - Has been absolutely incredible since he joined. We're in with a chance of beating anyone when he plays. 9.5
Anichebe - As much as he hates being called it, he's a super-sub. Not good enough to start but has came up with lots of goals from the bench. 7
Vellios - Scored a few goals earlier in the season but has since disappeared. 6
Stracqualursi - An absolutely awful footballer but still offers a lot due to his astounding work rate. 6.5
McFadden - Still a daft decision to bring him back but hasn't looked too bad in his last couple of games. Useful to have around. 5.5

quote CashisI reckon he's a great, young shot stopper. Which is why I'm wondering what was the point of signing 6/7 keepers after him who never play anyway D:

Kelvin Davis - Quality season. 17/18 clean sheets. Had a *bleep*ing stormer away to Leeds when we won 1-0. Not sure if he'll make the step up but he'll get the chance. 8/10
Bartosz Bialkowski - 1 league game, 1 complete *bleep* up that cost us 2 points. Prick. 1/10
Frazier Richardson - Had a decent season, burnt out towards the end and played less. Brilliant in defence and will be a main player next season. 7/10
Danny Butterfield - Had to wait a while to get a chance in the side but since taking over from Richardson he's been decent. Will probably be released in the summer. 5/10
Danny Fox - One of our better players this season. Solid at the back, willing to get forward and support Lallana. Vital player next season.7/10
Dan Harding - Not had much chance this year because of Fox. Probably kept as back up for next year as he's a decent player. 5/10
Jos Hooiveld - Outstanding. Was quality on loan and I'm delighted we made it permanent. Will run Lambert very close for player of the year. Wins most of his headers and has made some brilliant last ditch tackles and blocks. 9/10
Jose Fonte - Finally got a goal in the last game! No at his best this season and I'd rather have someone else with Jos next season. Still a decent defender and will be a capable back up option. 6/10
Aaron Martin - Played a few games this year, still young though and will probably be on loan next season. 5/10
Raidi Jaidi - Injured all year, sign him as a coach pls Nigel! N/A
Adam Lallana - What a player. Very quickly becoming a Southampton legend. His feet are so quick. He's got a few tricks, turns this way and that. Scored some important goals and has some important assists. Love him. 8/10
Richard Chaplow - Scored some important goals. Had a few months out injured and we really missed him. Runs around everywhere and gets stuck in. Don't care what others think, he's quality. 6/10
Morgan Schneiderlin - His passing is sublime, sprays passes around the pitch with ease. Will suit the Premiership when he gets more time on the ball, looking forward to seeing him there. Will be our player of the season in the Prem imo 7/10
Jack Cork - Expected decent things from him after joining from Chelsea and he didn't disappoint. Brilliant on the ball and works really well with Morgan in the middle. Could be vital in the Prem! 7/10
Dean Hammond - Played quite a bit towards the end of the season, gets stuck in but the Prem is going to be too much for him. 6/10
Steve De Ridder - Would have liked to see him used more from the start. Main criticism is not taking his man on, has so much pace but rarely used it. Final ball was a bit shit as well. Scored a quality goal away to Reading which proved vital. 6/10
Jason Puncheon - *bleep*
Rickie Lambert - SOUTHAMPTONS GOAL MACHINE! Couldn't have asked anymore from Lambo this season. Over 30 goals in all comps. Like we've been singing for 3 years, he's taking us to the Premier League. Will get goals next season. 10/10
Billy Sharp - Only joined in January but scored 10 goals. Not the best player outside the box, but deadly inside it. 2 vs Pompey at home boosts his rating as well Him and Lambert will be really important if we're to stay up. 8/10
Guly - Got some very harsh treatment at times this year, mainly for poofing out of the challenge that Pompey equalised at their place from. Scored some important goals early on and has had some good games on the right. Very skeptical of keeping him for next season. Goes missing way too much. 6/10
Tadanari Lee - Livewire. Never stopped running when he played and his only goal was a cracker. Injury ruined his end to the season but he looks to make some intelligent runs and after a full pre-season he could be a fantastic latw outlet in games next season. 6/10
David Connolly - Legs have gone, certain to be released.
Lee Barnard - Will be gone in the summer, court case *bleep*ed up his season and he just isn't good enough anyway.
Loved this season.

Allan Mcgregor - Fast becoming a Rangers great, the man has hardly put a foot wrong and has easily been on of the best players this season. 9/10
Neil Alexander - Was a usually reliable keeper but mistake cost us a place in the cup. I's say he is still in top 5 GK in SPL. 6/10
Steven Whittaker - He is such a liability in defence, his stupid red cost us a place in Europe. Not bad going forward. 5.5/10
Kirk Broadfoot - Only reason he still plays for us is we have no-one else. 4/10
Kyle Bartley - On loan from Arsenal, he has been played at RB and has been really shocking. Has potential but only as a CB. 5/10
Dorin Goain - He had a great start to the season with us, his lack of pace and fouling in the box has made him a bit of a hazard, still not too bad. 6.5/10
Carlos Bocanegra - Captain America has been a bargain of a signing. Full of experience and just doesn't take any chances at the back. His dedication from the off was fantastic. 8/10
Ross Perry - Whenever he has played he has done a pretty good job. Still fairly young and i reckon he will feature alot more next season, should we still be here. 6.5/10
Lee Wallace - He has been another great signing. Struggled at the start but i feel we have a player who will be at the club for many years to come if we aren't forced to sell. 7/10
Sasa Papac - Mr Consistency has struggled with injuries and looks set to leave on a free at the end of the season. Rarely puts a foot wrong. 7/10
Sone Aluko He has been the bargain of the season. Snapped up on a free and has been quality. Runs round players for fun, but sometimes he tries to hard as he feels like he is having to do everything. 8.5/10
Steven Naismith - Easily the best player before he got injured. You could see that we looked alot poorer with-out him. Hopefully he returns better than ever! 9/10
Steven Davis - Handed the captains armband and has slightly struggled. Had alot of stick but he is still the top assister in the SPL and when he plays good he is unplayable. 8.5/10
Jamie Ness - Oh the potential this lad has. Pity that he is always injured. Keep him fit and he will be sure to start most games. 7/10
Maurice Edu - Whenever we play bad the blame used to be attached to Edu. Feel sorry for the lad as this season he has been one of our best performers. 8/10
Rhys McCabe - 19yr old controlled the last OF match at Ibrox. Looks very composed and impressive for his age. This lad will go places. 7/10
Salim Kerkar - A bit of a hit with the fans. 10/10
Lee McCulloch - What a legend. The man is playing for free and give 110% every single game. Just bullies defences upfront. 7/10
Kyle Lafferty - He was fast proving the money spent on him was money well spent, but has recently been suspended by the club... 7/10
Andy Little - He has done very well since coming in, scored quite a few goals lately. 6.5/10
David Healy - Dont really know what to say, been forced to use him and he did not bad. Doubt he will be here next season. 5/10

Man Utd Fan 123, Tunnicliffe was good if a little rough around the edges, I was disappointed we sent him back early especially considering none of our midfield don't tackle.
No mention of Scott Wootton then? Could be because he's not very good, no chance whatsoever of making it into the first team with you.
