Becchio Nominated For PFA Fans Award

December`s contenders for PFA Fans` Player of the Month Award

The leading contenders for the PFA Fans' Player of the Month Awards* for December have been announced.

Voting for this month`s award closes at midnight on December 31.

The Premier League`s 'big four` may have all suffered minor hic-cups at the weekend, but their star performers are still get plenty of votes of confidence from the fans.

Cristiano Ronaldo - Manchester Utd
Nicolas Anelka - Chelsea

When it comes to the race to become the final PFA Fans` Player of the Month in 2008, the likes of Ronaldo, Fabregas, Anelka and Gerrard are once again in the running. One player currently trying to break up the Fab Four`s monopoly is Manchester City`s all-action midfielder Stephen Ireland. Even though he`s surrounded by expensive, superstar characters like Robinho, Jo and Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ireland has been the club`s outstanding performer this season. Consistently so too, as manager Mark Hughes has pointed out on numerous occasions. Ireland has scored six goals in 16 appearances already this season and continues to impress even though results haven`t been going City`s way of late.

After one recent man-of-the-match performance, Hughes said of Ireland: 'He was outstanding again and he has been in almost every single game he's played in this year. He worked extremely hard in the summer and he came back fit and strong and wanted to be a part of what we're doing here. He`s enjoying his football at the moment and he's having a real impact in every game he plays.'

Championship:

Kevin Phillips - Birmingham City
Lee Carsley - Birmingham City
Julian Speroni - Crystal Palace
Kevin Doyle - Reading
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake - Wolves

In the Championship, it`s no surprise to see the top two clubs - Wolves and Birmingham - being well represented on the current leader board with a couple of weeks of voting to go.

Reading`s Kevin Doyle, the division`s leading scorer and a former monthly winner, is also in the frame, along with Crystal Palace keeper Julian Speroni who has helped the Eagles maintain their impressive push for promotion. Veteran striker Kevin Phillips continues to poll plenty of votes, as does Wolves` 14-goal leading scorer Sylvan Ebanks-Blake who, along with the likes of Michael Kightly, has been linked with a possible January move to a Premier League club.

Wolves` boss Mick McCarthy though is not interested in selling off his best assets with a return to the Premier League in the offing, and he said recently: 'I have said that I will tell any club to politely go away, as will the chief executive and the chairman. None of them are going anywhere.'

In Leagues One and Two, the likes of goal aces Matty Fryatt, Neil Harris and Peter Thorne are staking strong claims.

League

Bas Savage Tranmere
Lee Peacock - Swindon
Luciano Becchio - Leeds
Matt Fryatt - Leicester
Neil Harris - Millwall

League 2:

Luke O'Brien - Bradford
Marc Richards - Port Vale
Peter Thorne - Bradford
Shane Cansdel - Sherriff - Shrewsbury
Terry Dunfield - Macclesfield Town
