Norwich City fans have been voting for third choice goalkeeper Carlo Nash to win the award to show their dismay at this season.
The Canaries look like they will be playing Championship football next season unless they can manage to salvage anything from their two remaining games against Chelsea and Arsenal.
When your club has had such a disastrous season and is facing the possibility of relegation it is audacious for the club to ask their fans to vote for their player of the year. There isn't really going to be a stand out candidate when everybody has underperformed and the club has underachieved.
Norwich City fans have therefore decided to ridicule the award by voting in their mass for third choice 'keeper Carlo Nash. The former Preston North End goalkeeper has not made a single appearance for the club since joining on a free transfer last summer. In fact he has only appeared on the bench on a handful of occasions. His impact at the club has been so minimal that it wasn't possible to find a suitable picture of him in Norwich attire.
Carlo Nash has made a career out of being a back-up 'keeper and has in fact only played in 12 games since February 2007. Coming towards the end of his career now, the award should he get it would probably be one of the highlights of a career that tailed off after leaving Preston. Seemingly happy at sitting on the bench and picking up a wage, the award can both ridicule the club and the player.
Even other club's fans have been getting in on the act as well.
Carlo Nash. In an average to poor season, he's been neither. #NCFCPOTS— Josh Allton-Jones (@joshalltonjones) May 1, 2014
#NCFCPOTS Carlo Nash. And that's from a Fulham fan - totally outplayed us.— Harry (@thefulhamblog) April 30, 2014
I think #NCFCPOTS has to go to Carlo Nash, he hasn't put a foot wrong all season. No goals conceded either.— Stevie (@gurustevie) April 30, 2014
Fans are giving the reason that Nash hasn't had the chance to be poor for them this season whereas all the other players have at least given a few bad performances. Robert Snodgrass could find himself unfortunate though if the award does indeed go to Nash.
