“I just can’t seem to get enough, Suarez…”

That famous chant has been sung across the Premier League loudly and proudly by Liverpool fans this season, as Luis Suarez had a sensational campaign.

That being said, Suarez is PST’s Premier League Player of the season.

His supreme goal-poaching abilities were made even sweeter as his redemption story is one for the ages. Handed a hefty ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic at the end of the 2012-13 season, plus his desire to leave Liverpool in the summer, mean that Suarez rise from being the PL’s public enemy number one to the leading light is remarkable. Coupled with Liverpool’s unlucky title-charge and their second placed finish, there was only going to by one winner.

Suarez, 27, finished as the top scorer in the PL with 31 goals from 34 games and picked up the PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards. The Uruguayan aces’ record-breaking season saw him become the first PL player to score 10 goals in one calendar month as he tore it up in December. Suarez bagged four goals against Norwich and scored hat trick’s against West Brom and Cardiff City.

When it came to selecting our Player of the Year at PST, Suarez dominated the voting but Yaya Toure also got two of the six votes as Manchester City’s driving force from midfield became just the second PL midfielder in history to score over 20 goals in a league campaign.

In the end, Suarez deservedly collects the gong as he proved he is right up with the best strikers in the world.

    The line from the song is “I just can’t GET enough Suarez (doo doo doo dee doo doo)” from the Depeche Mode song.

    But thanks now I’ll be singing that in my head all day.

    He comes from Uruguay, now he wears the famous Red
    I just can’t get enough I just can’t get enough
    When he scores a volley, or when he scores a head,
    I just can’t get enough I just can’t get enough
    He scores a goal and the Kop goes wild
    And I just can’t seem to get enough Suarez
    (doo doo doo dee doo doo, doo doo doo dee doo doo)

    Yaya Touré, one of the best in the world at his position!

    I still think Edin Džeko deserves more credit than he is getting for Man City’s title.

    I’m a City supporter, so both my heart and my head say it should be Yaya..but I can’t complain about this. Suarez is ridiculously good. And you know what? I never liked him better than after seeing him in tears after that collapse vs Palace. Passion, baby!
