The Professional Footballers' Association have announced the nominees for their Player's Player of the Year award and we are pleased to see that London has just about cleaned up.

The only contender from north of Watford Gap is Stevie Gerrard, who is probably fretting right now about how he's going to make his next own goal against Chelsea look like an accident, whilst at the same time wondering how that blue shirt is going to match his complexion next season.

The other contenders for the gong are Frank Lampard, John Terry, Petr Cech, Andrew Johnson and Thierry Henry, who's going for his hat-trick. Not only that, but there also two Londoners, Arjen Robben and little Jermain Defoe, amongst the nominees for Young Player of the Year. Carruthers! Ambassador, truly you spoil us with this array of footballing talent that can be found in our capital city!

Personally, I'm amazed that they haven't found room for either Gabor Kiraly (king of tracksuit bottoms) or Joseph Cole (the future of football), but I guess it's all about opinions isn't it?

So then, is there anyone YOU think they've missed out? Who do you think will win? And who's been the pride and joy this season at your own club? Comments and emails please.
