A good night's work for United at the PFA!

I came to the conclusion many years ago at work that you can’t bullshit your peers. Bosses often think they know how a person performs by having in place some very complex employee appraisal systems. Don’t believe it. Just ask peers if you want to get the real picture.

So it is wonderful to see the report of last nights PFA (Professional Footballers' Association) Awards.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United has been voted Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year - by his fellow Professional Footballers. This is the first time in 30 years one player has won both awards in the same year. Just to cap a wonderful evening Manchester United had 8 of the 11 players in the Premiership Team of the Season. Again these players were voted for by fellow professionals.

I will continue to ignore the BBC Radio critics who complain of the poor quality of the Manchester United squad and I will take due notice of the thousands of top class professional footballers who rate Ronaldo and Manchester United the tops.

This is the Premiership 11 voted by fellow professionals:

PFA Premier League Team of the Year:

Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra (all Man Utd); Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo (all Man Utd) Steven Gerrard (Liverpool); Didier Drogba (Chelsea) Dimitar Berbatov (Tottenham)
