 I don't think folk are at all shy about nominating women or girls. Just the way certainly this month has gone so far. The performances have come hugely more from the men.

Step it up, ladies

Very interesting from CD there, but would we have to change the name from Player of the Month to something else ?

Good point - and, no, not trying to change something that works well
So we can delete Tom if he's not really in the right place here - no worries
(Or just allow the occasional interloper?)

Well - I dont want to change it from player of the month, thats what it is. I dont mind Tom being in though. I recall nominating Jamie Murray after he organise battle of the Brits, for his organisation and leadership. But he is still a player of course.

Dont know really - I suspect if we keep it player of the month , the interlopers will be infrequent still (1 in 3 years?) and it wont matter and if it becomes too frequent for all of our likings we can draw a line. Im happy to have you leave him in.

My comment was rather 'tongue-in-cheek' and I should have made that clearer.  Sorry.

Very happy to see the odd interloper on the list. Leave him in.
