With 29% of the 5,685 votes, the Everton captain eventually edged ahead of John Stones (who garnered 28%) and James McCarthy (27%).
Jagielka was named as the club's official Players' Player of the Year and Player of the Year at the awards gala earlier this week, capping a season in which he started somewhat uncertainly but eventually saw him take a leadership role in pulling the Blues away from relegation danger and to mid-table safety.
The final results:
Phil Jagielka — 29%
John Stones — 28%
James McCarthy — 27%
Steven Naismith — 5%
Romelu Lukaku — 4%

Stones is impressive, but he still makes too many mistakes. Next season might be his. I don't think McCarthy really should have been so close. He is all effort, but he contributes too little for me in too many phases of play.

Tough to pick a stand out, but easy? Yeah, ok :-)

I'm still amazed that they gave Naismith a 3 year contract.
Then again he probably signed on the cheap right up BK's alley.

McCarthy is my favourite player but by his high standards he had an average season despite being crucial to the team. He too had a difficult beginning to the season.
For me the clear winner was Stones as he wasnt involved in the mediocrity for most of the 1st half of the season and our season turned around with his introduction. To me it seemed like he was the leader at the back as Jags became twice the player with Stones beside him. In essence most had poor games this season but Stones was the only one who you could count on one hand.

For me, Leighton Baines deserves a medal for the way he soldiered on without any left side support whatsoever for the whole season. Not surprised he ended up in the sick bay.

It was our emergent youth that has been the bright side of a dissapointing season and there are three you could mention but for me Stones edged it.

Read back over the match reports and thereÂs barely a mention of him such is his general anonymity in games. 2 goals and 1 assist is a shocking stat for a 㾹M central midfielder. He does run about a lot, though, so, yeah... one of our best!

His recently acquired orange boots wouldnÂt go down well with the Republic but they help me spot him and I can assure you that, apart from the odd game, he has played well for most of the season.

Voted for Stones who has been the only positive this season for me.

I think the poll about sums it up. Jags, Stones and McCarthy were our best performers although letÂs be honest no-one was outstanding.

My mate whoÂs a Man City fan constantly moans about their costly DMs and says he would swap them all for McCarthy. Sometimes it takes unbiased opinions to really tell how good/bad our players are.
