Congrats Dele on beating Kane to the young player of the year award despite Kane being nominated in the main awards. Absolutely deserved though. I just don't think I understand.

Had to really, it's a joke that he's not up for the main award as well.

To be fair Kane was shit at being a young player. He looks too old. Winks now. He's a great young player as he looks like a ball boy.

I get it, so Dele could of got on the normal list if he grew out some stubble and had a receding hairline.

Thoroughly merited, and can only get better.

What a crop of talented youngsters that Poch has assembled.

Individual trophies are great but I want team trophies
I want all the trophies - League, FA Cup, Champions League, PFA Player of the Year, Golden Boot, Great British Bake Off, Blankety Blank Cheque Book and Pen. Anything less and the squad are all chokers.

Well done the kid.

Mystified how Ibrahimovic and Hazard were ahead of Kane for the main prize seeing as they only had half a season each when the votes were cast.

Kane being nominated at the age of 23/24 makes the award a bit funny.
Rooney was the same - he was an ever present in the England squad for six years and was STILL eligible for young player of the year, which just turned it into a joke. To be fair, they should re-name it Under 21 poty or something.

As they stand now, like Bomber says, it's confusing as hell and makes little sense.
