After a November which saw us play a paltry three matches due to the international break, the fixture computer went beserk and saw us play no fewer than SEVEN matches. One of these was the rearranged match at Everton who had been otherwise engaged on Champions League business back in August when the match was originally due to be played. No, really they were.
All of which meant a hard day’s night for yours truly slaving over a hot Excel spreadsheet in order to bring you the Player of the Month awards for December 2005. The last month of the year saw us have our worst injury crisis of the season and no fewer than 18 players.
Ever present amongst-these was Roy Carroll whose average score of 6.86 saw him take third place. Another ever-present was Marlon Harewood who took second place with an average mark of 6.90 ahead of Nigel Reo-Coker who, though averaging 7.00 for the month did not play enough matches to qualify for a placing.
However award for the KUMB player of the month for December goes to Yossi Benayoun with an average of 7.03.
The monthly award winners this season to date have been:
August/September: Anton Ferdinand
October: Paul Konchesky
November: Hayden Mullins
The latest standings in the race for the player of the season awards up to and including Charlton away are:
