Almost every forum has their own Player of the Year election, so why wouldn't we have one ?
The 15 Candidates:
One of the best players in our own league, and really important for the Standard team we saw in Europe. Standard won the title for the first time in 25 years under his captaincy.
Potentially propably the best Belgian football player, who suffered with some injuries this year. Couldn't really guide AZ into the right direction, but played great at the Olympics.
Was worth €20 million for Everton, and also had a great impact at the championship winning side of Standard last year. Starts to adapt in the Premier League.
Another player shining in the Jupiler League. Gillet didn't had any problems at all making the move from Gent to Anderlecht, and has been decisive at several occasions for Anderlecht.
Didn't play too much at Hamburg anymore, and made the move to Manchester City. He's managed to establish himself at Manchester, and he's quite unthinkable out of Man City their first eleven. Had no problems at all to adapt to Premier League football.
Was a threat for the defences at the Olympics and earned a transfer to Saint Etienne. So far, he hasn't been able to get a starting spot at Les Verts
Playing in the Serie A for several years now, Mudingayi fought himself into the first eleven of Bologna, after making the move from Lazio.
Simons won again the Eredivisie with PSV, and has been a regular for many years now at the Dutch top team. He's also the captain of our NT, which actually and finally seems to be able to play football again.
Talking about the NT, Wesley Sonck has been one of the most important players the last couple of months. He scores as well at national as international level again. A nice comeback after his failed adventures in Holland and Germany.
Time for another talent. Steppe had a great season at Germinal Beerschot, and was togheter with Colman and Losada decisive for the great season the club had. Got his move to Heerenveen, where he also has a starting spot now.
Stijnen has been of great importance yet again for Club Brugge this year. Without him, Club could have easely got some points less then they actually have now. Also the n°1 of the Belgian NT.
Daniel Van Buyten:
They may call him Daniel Von Blunder, but Van Buyten is still playing at Bayern Munchen. None of the other Belgian players can say they play at a European top team ...
Regular at Ajax now. Has played at the centre of the Ajax defence for the biggest part of the year. Recently he got moved to the left back. Also performed good at the Olympics.
Vertonghen is propably of a higher importance then Vermaelen at Ajax. His fighting spirit and physical abilities also helped the Olympic team as the NT this year.
Propably the most big discovery of Standard. Witsel has everything to become a top player. Technique, physical abilities and a grown up football mind. You rarely see someone as mature of Witsel on his age.
