Think it's wrong that fans are able to vote for the U21s POTY, should be Joyce's choice or voted by fellow teammates. Too often the player awarded is the most popular player, James Weir 100% the U21s player of the year. Similarly the U18s POTY isn't really the best player in the U18s season but the best player Under 18, however Rashford probably was the best player for the U18s this season as he was very good for them until being brought in to the first team in February/March and the best player U18 this season.
Closer this year to having a different POTY than De Gea I sense but votes away from De Gea probably split between Smalling, Blind and Martial. Think I actually voted Martial. De Gea absolutely the right choice though, hopefully next year others will really step up.
