Vote For Your Player Of The Season

Vote For Your Player Of The Season

Vote for your Swansea City player of the season on Vital Swansea.

Here are the nominations:

Dorus De Vries: With the departure of Willy Gueret, Martinez needed to sign a quality goalkeeper to replace the Frenchman. They're hard to come by but the Spaniard managed to sign the Dutchman on a free from Dunfermline. He's had rave reviews from the fans, especially in the first half of the season when he made a number of important saves during games.

Angel Rangel: He arrived at the Liberty Stadium much unknown to anyone. The right back has taken over Alan Tate's and has made it his own. Mr Cosistency this season, his defensive qualities and ability to get forward whenever possible makes him a worthy contender.

Garry Monk: Regarded by many as one of our most improved players. He missed most of last season with a knee injury but has returned this year to captain the side to promotion. He's been consistent and solid throughout. His quality at the back has been missed recently as we have struggled without him.

Darren Pratley: Received criticism early on in the season for his negative style of play but a few months later he was regarded as one of our star performers alongside Ferrie Bodde in midfield. His energy has been immense and he has developed a superb midfield partnership with the Dutchman.

Paul Anderson: The on-loan Liverpool took a bit of time to settle in and start playing regularly but his sheer pace and skill on the flank has been a huge problem for League One full backs this season. Despite missing some of the season and playing out wide, he has also scored his fair share of goals. Martinez along with the fans are hoping he'll extend his loan stay next year.

Ferrie Bodde: Martinez signed the midfielder for a very small fee, from Ado Den Haag. He was very anticipated in pre-season as being one of most excited signings, and he didn't fail to dissapoint. His quality shone through in games and his no nonsense attitude and all-round ability made him a favourite amongst the fans. The Dutchman has dictated play whenever he's been on the pitch, and his playmaking and tackling has been vital to us this year. Another superb signing.

Tom Butler: Another player regarded as one of most improved players this season. He struggled to perform under Kenny Jackett last season, and it was only the goals he scored in the FA Cup upset at Sheffield United that he performed particularly well. This year however, he's been like a different player. Has scored some excellent goals and proved he is a worthy member of the team. Whilst we thought we'd miss Anderson when he was injured, Butler came in and did a fantastic job on the wing.

Andy Robinson: Criticised by some for his style of play on the left wing but you can't leave him out. Not quite as consistent as we'd like but he's scored some excellent goals this season, particularly free-kicks and his skill always causes problems. He was involved in both goals at Gillingham to win promotion and also struck the woodwork 3 times in the goalless draw at Carlisle.

Leon Britton: Has a heart of a lion and punches higher than his weight. Despite being by far our shortest player, his determined performances in centre midfield have been a joy to watch. He struggled out on the wing early on but never looked back when he was moved into the centre. His ball-winning abilities are superb for someone so small and his effort and enthusiam has been superb. He never ever lets the team down.

Jason Scotland: Another cheap, superb signing from the Scottish Leagues. He's been criticised throughout the season but you have to wonder why when he scores 29 goals in his first season with us. Without his goals we wouldn't be in the top 2 and has contributed hugely to the team. He's proved to be a lethal finish in and around the penalty area and has been a bargain. 30-goals a season strikers can cost hundreds of thousands.

I think it has to be Gary Monk, to come back strongly from a career threatening injury is bad enough, Monk showed this season why he can be our club captain; consistant, strong, commanding, and always in control, he's got my vote (scotland came close)

Think Monk has missed too much of the season to gain player of the season.

Willy Gueret left because we signed DeVries, not the other way round.
