Lancashire Telegraph: Burnley FC fans' jury Burnley FC fans' jury

Who is your Burnley player of the year, and why?

 I KNOW Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have scored the goals, but I have already gone for Scott Arfield in the club’s official vote.

He was getting a bad press from Huddersfield fans when they let him go last summer, they were saying he wouldn’t be good enough for us.

But he has proved the critics wrong this season, he has been outstanding.

He must be one of the best free transfers in the Football League this season, with his work rate and the eight important goals he’s scored.

But it’s really not been about one individual this season. The whole squad and the management deserve every credit.

PAUL SMITH

THIS is a really tough decision.

I think my player of the year is Sam Vokes.

We’ve really got to see the best of him this season with him getting a regular place in the side. Good touch, good in the air, good hold-up play and a goalscorer.

Sam has been unplayable at times this season and has bossed many a centre back.

A lot of Clarets were wondering where the goals would come from when Charlie Austin left but Sam, along with Danny Ings, has been fantastic for us.

MATT RIGGS

USUALLY there would be a straightforward answer but in this extraordinary season there are several to choose from, from the unsung heroes to the blatant heroes.

They say the first step to a successful team is a quality goalkeeper and in Tom Heaton we have that. When was the last time we went through a season without the keeper making a mistake or even dropping a cross?

Kieran Trippier, Dean Marney and Sam Vokes have all been consistently brilliant but I’m going for the blatant hero in Danny Ings, whose goals and performances are about to take us to the promised land.

I know who my vote for is for `worst and most anti local newspaper coverage ` is going to !! Can anybody guess ? What a rag. So close to automatic promotion to the PL and not even a match report.

I've been going on about this all week but I have to agree with all the above. Utter disgrace. Is Geldhard afraid to drive to away games? And what is it with that ridiculous picture of Bowyer that's been on here for what seems like months, he looks like he's begging for help from above (actually, probably is).
Get your act together telegraph or I'm out of here.

A bit like we have with Rovers, we have simply outgrown the Lancashire Telegraph - they are OK if you are a piddling little Championship team but no good if you have higher aspirations like we do.

Dean marney has been the man for me. Without him we have struggled to boss the midfield. He was injured in nov and suspended for a few. Would love to see our records with and without him this season.

Midfield players sometimes seem to be the "unsung heroes" in a lot of teams. Strikers score goals and defenders/goalkeeper
s can keep clean sheets, which in turn helps to get victories. Midfielders graft, win balls, distribute and provide "assists" (an awful American term but it seems to be part of modern football parlance now). I think you are right, we have been the poorer for Marney's absences. We can play without Ings and Vokes (I'd rather not but we CAN) and we have found an able replacement for Tripps if needs be, but we never quite look balanced when Marney is out. He should be, perhaps is, the first name on the team sheet every game.
