There are some stupid fucktards on here.
To the people asking why x, y ad z players deserved it more, look at the list of possible winners. They are voted as a winner from each month Aug through March, Meireles was Feb best players, Luiz- March, Torres- October etc. These players then fight it out for the overall winner. It is not a player of the year so to speak but they best player of one of the winning months, you stupid, stupid bastards.
