Let's have a little fun here. Althought the FVSL is bush,:rolleyes:there has to be some great players, right? Here is a list of some that I can come up with. Make your pick, and perhaps give a short explanation as to why.

Here we go.:bronco:

I voted for Fraser Ross.:DHow could you not? Plus, he owns KOB's and he has "the card". Mmmmm......pachos.........:D

I encourage others to start similar polls with their top ten.

I can only comment on the players I know well enough to make an informed decision.

I didn't vote for Pasqua because I coached him as a whiny youth player and I'm a shitty coach, so therefore he must be shitty as well. Also he still owes me a bottle of scotch. We've played together on numerous occasions, soccer as well, and I enjoy the privilege. He is talented but his achilles heel is his temper and the fact his mother is madly in love with me. He could have been my stepson. Also, after witnessing Ian Mclean slapping Pasqua's bare ass in the changeroom, I can not bring myself to vote for a pillow biter.

A young Fraser Ross was a force to be wreckoned with but now he's just fat........and bald. ;) True gentleman and scholar of the game. It hurts me to not pick him and ruin the chance of indulging in a free pint.

Cam Wilmets is a great player. Very fast. Mean side to him. I played with him at Wesburn (Burnaby Canadians) and against him
in the FVSL. Extremely tough to mark simply because he is unorthodox and very bony. His arms flail and his elbows are like lances. He whines and takes stupid fouls which I have discussed with him. His reaction? He whined and elbowed me in the head. :rolleyes: So he doesn't get my vote.

Mark Avery gets my vote. He is underated by many, probably because he looks like Howdy Doody. How can Howdy Doody play soccer? But he can play. He is extremely intense and rule bound. Everything is up for debate and analysis with his teammates. Mark isn't in awe of anyone. I still contend that if for some strange reason Zinedan Zidane was playing Centre Mid in front of Mark Avery and he passed the ball left instead of right, you can bet your bottom dollar that Mark Avery would share his opinion about that........welcome or not. Is this irritating? Oh yes! But that's what makes Aves the player he is. Consistent. Great in the air and likely one of the best man to man markers out there.

So there ya go, Aves. Bet you're a little surprised huh?

Top Three

To hard to call as I don't get to see everybody on a regular basis. However, from what I have seen this year thus far here is my top three picks in no significant order;

Troy Edwards - North Delta United.
Stu Currie - Poco City Dominion.
Mark McQueen - Peace Arch United.

These guys have impressed me the most. No disrespect to guys in other divisions, but I believe the best players come from the Premier teams with maybe one or two exceptions.

Cheers:cool:

Skip's picks

Cam Wilmets (sp?) is my pick. I think he's the best all-round player in this league. Good size, extremely fit and can run all day, spreads the ball nicely, and has a deadly strike. Any VMSL team would be crazy not to have this player in their starting 11.

But, to be a bit of a homer:) .......I'd say Mark McQueen and Darren Hozle would be close as well.

-The Beast doesn't score tons of goals, but he puts his stamp on most games, and is definetly a game winner.

-Hibee is an extremely skilled, and intelligent player who can make defenders look silly at any given moment.

I voted for this Who fellow. From all accounts he doesn't have much size, speed or skill, but knows the true meaning of Christmas. You gotta respect that.

TR, regular TTPers can't start polls :eek:

As for this one, I can't vote as I rate both Aves and Pasqua equally (and they are the only 2 I've played with/against more than twice)...

Regs that is too Funny.:D

As for BEST FVSL Player, is this not Jumbo Shrimp;)

I voted for Loyd, he is a highly skilled player on the Ball, and a great guy.
Being a good guy goes a long way in the Valley League.

He was on it originally, but by all accounts, and I'm sure he'll be the first to tell you, he isn't having a great year, and I used this year in deciding who to put on the list. I believe there will be a version 2.0. I'll put him on there.

I agree. Cam really is great player, just too bad he isn't on a side with more talent, he would of collected alot more hardware. Deadly left foot. Always in a piss-ass mood.

My vote goes to Fraser because I heard he had a hattrick this season.

And he owns KOB's :D

lies........

I voted for Pasqua because I always thought he was a better player than his much-vaunted half-brother. In very much the same way Regs enjoys watching games from the backline, I used to enjoy watching Rich as he's always been such a stylish player. With him in the middle and Woodsy up front, no one could touch us as kids even with me in the side.

Ballbaby, you're right about the temper shout but I have to call you on your out and out lies as I played with Rich all through youth and would have remembered being on the receiving end of your tutelage. You're lying and I've lost all respect for you. Plus, talking about his Mum is offside. I spent many a weekend afternoon at the Eaton's cosmetics department as a younger man and she never mentioned you. You live in a world of delusion and make believe. It's nice to have some company.

Why isn't Ian McLean on this list? He should be. Sort it out.

Ian McLean would be my runner-up.

Cam gets my vote. The guy is a cnut, plus everything else that has been said. He presents the most difficult style to mark...with most players, you can ususally find a way to effectively eliminate them from the game through tight marking and a bit of uglyness, but it is very tough to get Cam off his game.
