Poty - DCL for me. Wow. Had an absolutely fantastic season and starting to look like a real genuine stud of a prospect.
Mina has had an extremely solid season and I think he could still prove to be the player he threatened to be with his early promise. We really should be getting 5 or 6 a year off his bonce though, and he does struggle with injuries it seems. Big men very rarely heal quickly.
Richarlison is a bona fide future CL player no doubt about it, a team of richarlisons please, but for Dom to step up and do what he's done this year is above and beyond.
Improved - for me Holgate, as I had him down as championship kick off merchant with a nice slide rule pass. Has grabbed the position in the way I'd wish Tom Davies would his.
Disappointment - probably Pickford who I have gone from thinking, this is a genuinely very good young goal keeper who needs some flaws ironing out, to; this is a consistently bad goalkeeper who needs ironing out. Statistically one of the worst in the league. A bigger fall from grace we could not imagine.
The sigurdssons, silvas, of the world - disappointment implies some sense of hope and both were lost with both of them sometime a season ago or more.
