One week left to vote for Watford's Player of the Season

Have you had your say yet to help decide who should succeed Tommy Smith as the Watford Observer Player of the Season?

More than 270 valid votes have already been received since we began our annual search for the Hornets’ top player of the current campaign on Friday, but there is still plenty of time to add your name to this list before the deadline on Tuesday, March 30.

Apart from 2005 victor Heidar Helguson, no other member of the current Hornets squad has secured the prestigious accolade before. Lloyd Doyley was the closest last year, when he finished third behind Smith and Tamas Priskin, Scott Loach was fourth, Ross Jenkins came a place further back and Adrian Mariappa and Jay DeMerirt also featured in the top ten.

Like last year, you can vote through this website, and this is also the medium through which you can have your say in deciding who should follow Grzegorz Rasiak as the next recipient of the Goal of the Season trophy and see this year’s 18 nominations.

Leading the list is current top scorer Tom Cleverley with six goals shortlisted, while Danny Graham, Helguson and Henri Lansbury each have two goals in contention. But it will come as no surprise that one of the highlights of the season, Doyley’s first senior goal against Queens Park Rangers in December, is also in the frame.

A system of one person, one vote will be utilised and this will again be strictly enforced. Votes received without an accompanying name, address and phone number will not be accepted.

As usual, the travelling fans were canvassed, and this happened on the coaches to Cardiff City on Sunday, and the Watford players will also get the chance to vote before the winners are announced at the club’s awards dinner at Shendish Manor Hotel on Sunday, April 18.

When you vote, please use the identification letter for Goal of the Season to assist with counting.

VOR I totally agree. This season is fast turning into a complete disgrace on the playing side. Given that we are now relegation candidates, how can we be serious about rewarding these hopeless under achievers????

Good god this club needs a good kick up the backside. Totally unacceptable.

You're having a nervous breakdown aren't you?

Interesting point though by Rick and VOR...over the past few weeks no-one has really warranted a Player award apart from Cleverley.

Mind you we had one for the Premiership eras and other poor seasons so I don't think this run of bad form is going to stop the awards going ahead.

Could be a bit frosty though at the Awards dinner if results haven't picked up!

As Tommy Smith was a Watford player this season can you not still vote for him?

As we're being asked to vote on the Player of the Season with 10 games still to go, shouldn't it be renamed "Player of the first 36 League games plus sundry (though admittedly not very many) cup ties" Award?

He is not the best goalkeeper we have had, nor the second best, not the tenth best, but the award, if there has to be one, which I doubt, has to go to Scott Loach. For once I agree with VoR, you cannot choose a player we have only on loan, e.g. Cleverley.

Not voting for someone purely because he's on loan? Do you choose not to celebrate Cleverley's goals either? Utterly ridiculous.
