I thought it might be interesting to give readers of the blog an opportunity to vote for their own ‘MoM’ just to see how much consensus there is amongst supporters. We all have different views regarding the contributions a player makes to a game, so at the very least it’s a chance to see if you’re of the same mind as other readers.
Mark Harrison has already explained that the official sponsors’ ‘Man of the Match’ is now made from the names of a number of players recommended by the Cov coaches, which should mean there won’t be quite so many anomalies as in previous seasons. This is just determine whether we’d agree.
It’s a one-off at the moment, but if it proves of sufficient interest, then it could become a regular feature.
Not quite in the same league as the ‘Burger Watch’ I know, but it’s something I’ve thought about adding for a while now and this seems as good a time as any…other than the start of the season, of course! D’oh…
All you need to do is click on the circle next to the player who is your man of the match. The software only allows one vote, although you can change your mind provided you do so before clicking on the ‘Vote’ button.
If you did go to the game, please do vote. The more people who participate, the more accurate an indication of what most supporters felt it is.
