PFA Popular Flying Association chief executive, yesterday paid tribute to each nominee in his association's two categories. Of Ronaldo he said: "The debate about whether he's as good as George Best will go on and on but for him to have broken George's goalscoring record from a wide position is phenomenal."
Taylor also had unstinting praise for Torres: "There have been many great Liverpool No9s down the years and he has carried on the tradition this season, responding brilliantly to what was a massive challenge. All of which speaks volumes about his strength of character as well as his ability."
On the subject of James, Taylor said: "It is a tribute to David that goalkeepers are rarely nominated but he fully deserves to join the elite list because he continues to be a top-class keeper - the most consistent in the Premier League this season - and an excellent role model." The winners will be announced on Sunday April 27.
