TTU Awards 2012-13

Now in their fourth year, the Two Unfortunates awards may lack the glamour of those officially handed out by the Football League in March although we do at least wait until all the issues are decided before deciding on our favourites.

TTU Awards 2011-12: Team of the Season

In the end, just a single point separated Reading and Southampton; the Berkshire club’s astounding run of form from January built very much on their being a team and not a collection of individuals and Adam Le Fondre’s thrilling brace deciding the April summit meeting.

The barrel chested scouser swept all before him in 2011-12 and how heartening it was to see this 30 year old veteran of Edgeley Park and Spotland so dominate the division. The parallels with Grant Holt have oft been drawn and no wonder — Lambert has every chance of matching the Norwich man’s …

TTU Awards 2011-12: Young Player of the Season

A couple of the nominees for this year’s best young player — Jordan Rhodes and Matt Phillips — have been so well tracked by the blogosphere that any further attempt to describe their abilities is probably about as welcome as the sight of the Cornish national flag on the Olympic Torch Relay.
