I think most of us agreed that Glen Kamara was a worthy player of the year but who do you think impressed without getting the praise they maybe deserved?

I've only included guys who made 7 or more league starts.

Voted for Elliot Parish ...  I felt allhough in some respect he was given a grand opportunuty when given the Keeper's jersey after the "issues" with Bain. In other ways, it must have been a daunting task to follow someone of the calibre of Scott Bain, who had made that position his own. I am not sure Elliot is quite there yet, but I'd like to think he might yet grow into it, unless DFC have some other much more experienced in mind.

After watching the excellent video of al the Dee goals on another thread it struck me on the edited highlights that people like O Hara and even AJ contributed more than I remembered. But that is only a snapshot of us in the final third. 

I went for Kevin. I might be wrong but I'm convinced that our results got better after he returned from his first team absence. If / When he goes I'll genuinely be sad to see him go. Yes he has faults (who doesn't) but he always put in a shift, I think he's a better defender than many give him credit for, he appears versatile (people saying he can play left back, CH etc) and I think he's one of the best strikers of the ball we have (Rangers free kick, penalty, recent Hamilton goal). He's chipped in with some important goals and performances so I go for the Tomato thief. 

Good luck Kevin.

Moussa. For all the shyte he's had flung his way, he came up with a couple of important goals at crucial times. His workrate 2nd to none also.

Boy deserves more credit than he gets IMO

The 3 nominated above are all worthy and for this cat, underrated. Went for Parrish for similar reasons to Gedee. I'll be sorry to see Holt go if it happens and I wouldn't care if he did a 'Gary Irvine' and ended up with us next season. Left back seems a tricky billet to fill.

I'll wait until it's confirmed how many Arabs McGowan took out on Sunday before I cast my vote

 

Again asking for a friend ?

If Holt leaves then I'd be looking to bring in Ralston on loan from Celtic for the year. 

Moussa is the unsung hero for this season.

As we've seen, loan players can be recalled so that's a risk unless we have cover.

I voted for Parish who stepped into the breach when Bain threw a ‘wobbly’.

i think that Elliott Parish has the makings of a good goalkeeper who helped save us from relegation or the dreaded 11th place in the league.

Ralston's a right back.

I went for Kasunga; steadied the defence when he arrived, and although Caulker ultimately got the credit for that I think Kasunga quietly went about showing he's a good player at this level, (hope we keep him on).

Thought about voting for Moussa, but "unsung"? Think most people about here appreciate what he brings to the team and have  praised and supported him against some unfair criticism accordingly. 

Again, hope he stays.

Disclaimer.....All IMVHO of course :)

O Hara, if every midfielder scored as many as him we would have been top six, played wherever he was asked and did whatever job he was told to.

A lot of votes for Kevin Holt.......didn’t appreciate him until he was gone

Gedee should send him a punnet of tomatoes as a going away present :D

I voted for AJ.

We collected one point from a possible 15 at the start of the season.  Many of here were convinced we were doomed after a shambolic 4-1 defeat at Ibrox that could easily have been 10-1. St Johnstone's visit to Dens was massive and with our confidence on the floor it fell to our new signing AJ to inspire our first win of the season in his first start. His two goals were enough to get our season up and running.

A week later we picked up our first away point of the season after the keeper couldn't deal with AJ's shot and El Bak bundled home at Killie.

Just before Christmas we were back in trouble and the bottom two faced each other. AJ played a key part in the crucial second after making a clever run into space before firing into the danger area for O'Hara to fire home. 

AJ smashed home the killer second goal from distance at McDiarmid in our last game before the winter break.

Another big turning point in our season came at New Douglas Park when AJ fired home a winner in the eighth minute of injury-time.

And arguably the most significant moment of the lot came at Firhill when AJ set up two goals in the last five minutes to give the Dee a victory that quite possibly saved us from the drop.

I would be happy to do so Harold .... But he seems to prefer the edgier approach :ph34r:

Something to do with the darkness & the danger that atrracts him & his followers :)
