Live Blog: Player of the Year 2010

Adam Bostock provides updates and observations from the Player of the Year Awards dinner at Old Trafford, which you can also watch live on MUTV and MUTV Online. Interact on Talking Reds .

23:08 With all the awards done and dusted, it's time for me to sign off the blog and type up some more quotes for the morning. Thanks to all of you who've followed it and posted comments on our message board. Goodnight all.

23:07 MUTV's still on air, with triple award-winner Wayne being interviewed by Mandy on the sofa - while a charity auction takes place in the background. Hopefully lots of cash will be raised for the Foundation.

22:53 And the boss has just presented the fifth and final award of the evening. The Players' Player of the Year is, yes, you've guessed it, Wayne Rooney. That's a hat-trick for Wazza. Well done. Has he got a speech ready? "Erm, not really. But it makes a change from Ronaldo winning everything!" Or words to that effect. I'm paraphrasing. Again.

22:52 Sir Alex is on stage now, looking back on a great season, looking forward to the final weekend and once again dismissing any thoughts or talk of him retiring.

22:46 Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year 2010, as voted for by thousands of fans on, is... Wayne Rooney. "It's a great feeling and something I'm very proud of. The fans are the best fans in the world."

22:45 And now for the ultimate award. Well, the penultimate one actually. But it's the most important one. Oh get on with it.

22:41 Wayne, modest as ever, disagreed with you lot. He said Michael Owen's 157th-minute winner against Manchester City was the true goal of the season in his opinion. 157 minutes wasn't his timing, I hear that's the latest estimate from Eastlands. The goal gets later and later in the blue half of Manchester as each week passes by.

22:36 And the winner is... Wayne Rooney, for his glorious strike on the break against Arsenal. Congrats Wazza.

22:34 Jim Rosenthal is narrowing the Goal of the Season
