Dunne named Supporters player of the year

Richard Dunne has been named as City’s Player of the Year for an amazing fourth successive year.

The skipper picked up his award, voted for by members of the Official Supporters Club, at a ceremony at the City of Manchester Stadium on Tuesday evening with the rest of the first team squad and manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in attendance.

Joe Hart capped a fine season, which saw him establish himself as City’s first-choice, by picking up the Young Player of the Year award at the event, attended by over 300 fans in the Boardroom Suite.

Youth team captain Ben Mee, who led the Under 18s to the FA Youth Cup win last month, was named as this season’s Most Promising Player.


A pretty impressive feat to be named as supporters player of the year for four successive seasons, and I'm pretty sure it is something that hasn't occurred before.

It is a real indication of the esteem he is held in by the overwhelming majority of fans, all the more ironic at a time when rumours continue to persist about his future at the club.

vote it up!

I can't believe he has been our player of the year this year. Its just not true. We're in danger of becoming the least objective football fans in world football.

Laughing Captain Mutiny. It's a disgrace he's still at the club after his stunt.

Says all you need to know about the manager.

I'd like to know when the votes were cast, and how many guidedogs were in attendance?
