Was one of the privileged few to attend this gala event, which was held at the Mediacorp TV Theater.
Noh Alam Shah was named the "Player of the Year", while his striking partner Mirko Grabovac took the top scorer award as well as the "Player of the Decade" award.
Pin-up boy Issey Nakajima of Albirex Niigata wrapped up the "Young Player of the Year" award.
Pretty innovative in the way the organiser announced the list of nominees, especially, the "Coach of the Year" awards, which drew laughter from the house.
In which, the five nominees (Ie: Young Lions' Fandi Ahmad, Albirex's Ichiro Otsuka, SAFFC's Kim Poulsen, Woodland's Karim Bencherifa and eventual winner Tampines' Vorawan Chitavanich) were being portrayed as a group of school kids in a classroom under the mercy of the "teacher" (pictured on the right).
Rather straight forward event which somehow marred by the lack of decorum in certain quarters of the audience, for the poorly-coordinated cheering, screaming and yelling!!
