Manchester United Message Board
Looks like it could be close again this season. My likely candifdateds for the award are:
Dzeko, if he gets enough games
Van Persie, if he stays fit.
I make no apologises for picking players from the top teams, not only are they better players but they are in teams which are going to create more chances. However, if I had to pick a player from outside the top six I`d go for Long who has made a great start at west brom.

Nani and Silva are great players and both will get some useful goals but they are not strikers and unlike Messi and Ronaldo they are not viewed as the main goalscorers in their teams. I can`t see the Golden Boot being won by anyone other than a striker. As for Drogba, he is still one of chelsea`s best players but t be honest I think his best years are behind him. He`ll get goals I just don`t think he`ll get enough of them to challenge the likes of Rooney and Aguero.
