Peterborough United fans name Nathan Thompson as their star man of the 2020-21 season so far, but who did talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham pick?
The PT asked fans to nominate their star man in a season that is now 25 matches old.
And Thompson picked up almost 40% of the votes. The 30 year-old has played in 15 matches and scored twice, at Northampton Town and at home to Rochdale.
Star midfielder Jack Taylor and reliable goalkeeper Christy Pym were joint second with 18% of the vote.
A selection of fans’ comments as told to @PTAlanSwann on Twitter...
The PT player grades will be online tomorrow (December 30).
Clarke-Harris, awful at everything apart from scoring goals. The best possible replacement for Toney.
Kent hardly ever puts a foot wrong.
Thompson probably has the highest win % of the ones who’ve played. Scored at Wobblers also.
Ward trained so hard alone during lockdown, and when playing put some great crosses in. Now injured and fighting hard to get back to full fitness again. Always committed and gives 100%
Thompson. Slight question mark over disciplinary record, but otherwise top quality and massively missed when injured.
I’d say Taylor. Thompson and Ward aren’t a million miles behind, with Dembele and JCH contributing well up top too!
Thompson by some distance for me. Defence is a shambles when he’s missing. Our biggest threat from the right too!
Thompson, Pym or JCH
I don’t agree with Adrian Durham (above) that much but he’s definitely right in that Taylor has a shout - as do Thompson and Ward.
Thompson for me as you can really tell when he’s absent from the team and he rarely puts a foot wrong when playing. Do think Taylor is a great second shout too
Pym. He was brilliant early on and has been really consistent throughout.
Thompson is sheer class
Pym, Thompson just behind.
It’s Taylor by a country mile. We missed him when on international duty. Definitely a midfield general in the making.
Pym - effective and increasingly commanding his defence. All those in front of him clearly trust his judgement which helps the whole team.
JCH. Big shoes to fill and though not in Toney’s league, 12 league goals in 18 games is a superb return in a team that most would agree has never got going.
JCH. He’s received a bit of stick for not being Ivan Toney and for scoring a few penalties, but give him the service and he’ll score 25 goals.
Thompson or Ward.
Pym has put an indifferent start behind him and been ultra reliable in all aspects of his performance.
