Two years ago, a knee injury derailed Bobby Convey's English Premier League career. Even last season, Convey struggled to find fitness and form in his return to Major League Soccer, leaving many to think that his best days were behind him.

This season featured a remarkable turnaround in both health and performance for Convey, who bounced back to lead resurgent San Jose with 10 assists en route to being named MLS Comeback Player of the Year.

Convey, who was named to the MLS All-Star team back in July, won the award outlasting the other two finalists, New York Red Bulls defender Chris Albright and FC Dallas winger Brek Shea.

What do you think of this selection? Do you think Convey is a deserving winner? Was there anybody who was not named a finalist that you think should have been considered?
