Barnett bags best player votes for Arsenal game
In the recent vote to determine the fans star man in the first game of the new season at the Emirates, Leon Barnett earned 35% of the votes to shade the other contender, Kim Do-Heon, by a mere 1%.
Both Barnett and Kim were obviously candidates for the tag of star performer in the 1-0 defeat, and I gave Kim the accolades in my post match review, but the majority have spoken and edged out the South Korean international in favour of the ever improving young centre-back.
Ishmael Miller and debutante Scott Carson were the other players to achieve recognition in the poll, earning 11% and 10% of the votes respectively.
While Jonno, Meite, Robinson and Brunt all got a handful of votes, unsurprisingly Hoefkens, Cech, and Morrison, generally regarded as the worst performers against the north Londoners, all garnered precisely 0% of the votes each.
