Yesterday here at Through It All Together, we introduced our staff-selected TIAT November Player of the Month, left back Charlie Taylor. “Top Flight” had long been an option for us in Player of the Month voting, and he finally won it in November, thanks to his runs into the box, general chaos-creating in the offensive end, and of course, his solid work in defence as well.
Today, we give you our readers a chance to join in on the process. We’ve had three Reader’s Choice Player of the Month votes so far, and we’ve awarded Marcus Antonsson, Pontus Jansson, and Chris Wood with the spoils in August, September, and October respectively.
Last month’s Reader’s Choice winner...
He's been our top scoring threat all year, now he's our October Reader's Choice POTM. Congrats @officialcwood! #MOT https://t.co/esERf67yrt pic.twitter.com/mKLPCu88xZ— Through It All #LUFC (@ThruItAllLUFC) November 4, 2016
This time, Mr. Wood is up for a chance at a repeat, and three new nominees join him. We detailed our cases for all four candidates yesterday in our POTM announcement, but we’ll sum up their cases below as well.
Luke Ayling: The man at right-back, Ayling quietly plays consistently good defence and finds ways to contribute to the attack as well.
Kalvin Phillips: The reigning EFL Young Player of the Month for October, Kalvin’s game continues to improve as he holds down the defensive midfield position in the absence of captain Liam Bridcutt.
Charlie Taylor: An assist in November on a run into the box, Taylor proved his two-way quality game after game, wowing the Liverpool faithful at Anfield and increasing his value should January call for a move.
Chris Wood: Still our leading goal-scorer, another month with the most on the club. Without Wood, the offense stalls. With him finding the right spots at the right times, everyone’s service into the box turns to gold.
So who do you have winning the November Reader’s Choice POTM? Let us know by voting in our Twitter poll, and make your argument in the comments below. We’ll be sure to share out anything that’s convincing, one way or the other.
November is done, the monthly review posted... now it's your turn. Who gets your vote for Reader's Choice #LUFC Player of the Month? #MOT— Through It All #LUFC (@ThruItAllLUFC) December 6, 2016
We’ll be announcing the winner on Thursday, and then of course, on Friday, we have a little match at Brighton, who currently sit second in the Championship table. Let’s win that one and keep climbing to glory. Thanks for reading, thanks for voting, MOT.
