Really close between a few for me:

Downing - Very solid signing, gets an honorable mention, but mainly between Adam Armstrong and Lewis Travis.

Armstrong's goals have been crucial, particularly in the second half of the season, since Dack has been injured, but decided to give it to Travis. I feel as though he has the potential to play in the Premier League, his work is so crucial to us and you really feel his absence when he's not in the middle of the park! 3 assist and 2 goals also!

I'd have no qualms at all with either of those getting it, especially Armstrong the way that he has kicked on, but I've voted for Darragh. I remember seeing our win percentage with him and without him in the team a couple of weeks ago. These things can be misleading, but even so I really think Lenihan is the one player in the squad that we miss the most when he doesn't play.

The way Armstrong has stepped up in Dack’s absence makes me wonder how effective they will be together! Let’s hope we get the chance to see this next season!

Travis runs him very close though.

Armstrong (no debate really)

Travis/Downing (hard to pick, but both really good)

Lenihan/Tosin (much improved here from last season. Both can improve too)

Would love if we can get Tosin back on loan.

Downing gets my vote. A real pro whose attitude and commitment have been first class. A team player who has rarely had a bad game and must have had a positive influence on the younger players.

Interesting splits in the poll.

I suspected it would be tight between Travis and Armstrong, who are the unanimous standouts.

10 of Armstrong's 15 goals have come since Dack's injury on 23rd December 2019. (9 league, 1 cup).

Trivia piece, Adam Armstrong, may well have scored the last ever goal at Gigg Lane, when Rovers played Bury FC in our 3-0 win at Gigg Lane on 24th July 2019.

Hard to pick, Travis/Armstrong or maybe Downing/Lenihan, probably in the order I've listed them?

Between Travis & Armstrong for me but went with AA due to the way he's stepped up since Dack's injury.

As others have said, honourable mentions for DL & SD. The former being a real lynch pin in the back 4.

Didn't know Christian Walton's mum visited here! 😁

I went for Downing, he's been a revelation really considering everything, his consistency & fitness are quite something.  I'm pretty confident the players would vote him as their POTY for his overall impact on the team's more progressive possession-based game and leading by example.

Travis by a country mile for me, Armstrong the only other viable contender.

Amazing that our golden goose can’t even get on the shortlist!

Travis just ahead of Armstrong with Downing third for me

I've gone for Armstrong, mainly for the sheer quality of his goals, and the way he stepped up to being the main man after Dack's injury.

After the last ten games none of them deserve any accolades.

Gone for Travis without him playing it’s noticeable. Wouldn’t have an issue with Armstrong winning it either both would be worthy winners

Travis for me. Armstrong goal of the season.

Surprised so many are going for Travis. I love Travis, he is the type of player we have been screaming out for since probably Savage left, but he is limited though. Even Dack the other night on commentary alluded to the fact he needs to be better with the ball. If he starts doing that, he will be some player. 

Has to be Armstrong player of the year though. Take his goals out and we could be in a relegation fight. Take Travis out and I don't think it would be as noticeable.

The thing that goes against Armstrong is that up until maybe November, he was poor to the extent that most of us wanted him dropped.

With Lenihan: W15 D10 L12

Without Lenihan: W2 D2 L6

Some other interesting ones:

 

With Bennett: W9 D5 L16

Without Bennett: W8 D7 L2

 

With Nyambe: W11 D10 L9

Without Nyambe: W6 D2 L9

 

With Bradley Johnson: W7 D6 L11

Without Bradley Johnson: W10 D6 L7

 

With Holtby: W6 D4 L4

Without Holtby: W11 D8 L14

How is Travis winning this poll? It really shows the type of player that Rovers fans love! 

Armstrong was player of the year, all day, no debate.
