*If* we get top 4 I think he'll win PL player of the season. Shouldn't really work that way but the recency bias and the notable team achievement late in the day would secure it, especially if Salah continues to end the season poorly and Liverpool don't win the league.

He deserves it. Had a couple of rough patches but has been productive throughout the season, even under Nuno, and had some incredible runs of form too.

If Kane didn't win it last year(*); no way Sonny wins it this year..... They'll always try and give it to a title-winner; ergo KDB it is.

(*Giving it to Dias last year was joke!)
 
I think it will be hard, Kane had a better season last year and there were no Salah's or KdB's to compete with and even that wasn't enough.

Personally I find it hard not to give it to KdB. His stats are great, his play is great and he is the most important part of the top team in the league. That doesn't mean Son isn't deserving as well but I find it hard to ignore when you have a player that is playing equally as well but for a team that has been so much more impressive.

It would be interesting to see Son win it with a lesser season than Kane last year and still hear Son fans cry about how he doesn't get any respect.
Is being pessimistic a prerequisite for being a spurs fan like truly asking for a friend.

I think it's all about the end of season narrative. Son scoring in the NLD and then scoring a couple more in the final two games to get us the top 4 'trophy (lmao) could be enough. Usually that narrative is around the title though, you're right.

I think if we'd gotten top 4 last season, Kane wins it 100%. It was the fact we finished 7th that meant he missed out.

In which case KDB's quadruple against Wolves seals it.

City's title win could be kinda dull though. If Woolwich drop points vs Newcastle and Son was to score 2 or 3 vs Burnley before taking Norwich apart he'd have a shot. Again it's all ifs and buts, but if he's nailing down top scorer in those last 2 games AND perceived as having been the one to get us back in to the top 4, I wouldn't rule him out.

Always is.

Of course; that'd be sweet!
