Manchester United Star Luke Shaw won the club’s Player of the Year award last night and fans on Twitter have been split on whether he deserved to win the prize for this season.
It has been a season to forget for the Red Devils as we have been from below par to plain ridiculous at different points of the season.
There hasn’t been a single player who’s had a season to remember and barring probably Scott McTominay, the others have disappointed with their performance including David De Gea.
It is quite ironic to think that our player of the year is a defender in the same season we have conceded the most goals in a premier league season which says a lot at where we are now.
Some fans on Twitter think that the awards night for this year should have been cancelled altogether while some think that Luke Shaw is a deserving winner.
Take a look:
Ppl being to hard on Luke shaw hes probably been the best of a bad bunch tbf and tbh most would of wanted the thing scrapped imo

Couldn't be more wrong, Shaw's fitness is terrible, slow to track back after going forward. His crosses and balls into the box are so poor. He's average

Its a sad state of affairs when our player of the year is a defender in the same season we have conceded the most goals in a premier league season. But Luke Shaw has been one of only a few shining lights this season. And he can get better. #MUFC #MUFCPOTY

Luke Shaw won the player of the year award because there were no excellent players, he is good among average players. #MUFC

Luke Shaw our player of the year. What a joke. Desperately need new fullbacks next season. I’d love to see us sign Wan-Bissaka and Chilwell but that’s not gonna happen. We’re in such a mess. Not looking forward to the next season. #mufc

So I mean no disrespect but Shaw winning POTY is laughable. Yes he has had a few decent games but our defence is the worst in years, surely an attacking player should be winning it…wait…none of them actually deserve it.

#MUFC #POTY is a defender in a season where we conceded the most goals in an #EPL season. I don’t have anything against Shaw, but I can name at least five left backs in the #EPL that are better than him. That’s how bad we are

Shaw is far from one of our worst players. We have an attack that doesnt score, poor Centerbacks, smalling, Jones, bailly. A 33 year old winger as a right back. A midfield that is either superb or poor 70% of the time and you are whining about one of the most consistent players?

Like one user on Twitter said; Luke Shaw has had a good season, not brilliant, not extraordinary, just good and yet he wins the Club’s player of the season trophy. That just shows us how far behind we are compared to other top sides in the Premier League.
Hopefully, Ole works his magic next season. We are quite in the need of some!
