Praise from the very best

Those aren’t just any old rent-a-quotes giving their opinions. That’s Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer. Two world class goal machines of years gone by, and two of England’s greatest ever players.

When they praise players like this, they know what they’re talking about. Perhaps Palmer really does have a chance of winning the Player of the Year award? Comments like this certainly make it more likely, and indicate a certain trend among writers towards appreciating just how good he’s been on an individual level in a team which has struggled

When people start to realise that, the numbers become even more ridiculous and his case even stronger.
