    So the team of the year by the EFL and Football Manager has been announced (unsure why so early)

    please log in to view this image


    Newcastle may be top and also top scorers, oh and least conceded, but please don't that fool you.

    From an un-biased point of view, Tammy Abraham scoring 19 in a sh!te Bristol team should probably have been recognised. Also Cairney of Fulham has smashed it!

    Unsure why Wagner is manager of the year, They might not even go up!

    Unsure how Clarke hasn't made it, Stockdale wouldnt make the Top 5 goalkeepers in the league, who is Mooy, Smith, Janson and Malone?

    Wagner's probably right to be manager of the year, everyone was expecting us and Brighton to be up there, and neither of us has run away with it, but Huddersfield's progress since last year has been incredible.

    Would've had Darlow in there in there up to January, but with his recent antics he's going to get nowhere near that team. Stockdale looked shakey against us, passing straight to Gouff and giving him a one on one, and he was an absolute clown recently vs Forest gifting them a goal....surely there's been better keeper's than that in the league?

    It's surprising we've only got 2 in there, yeah we've hardly run away with it, but Matt Richie and Ciaran Clarke are easily deserving of places.

    Load of clart, that.

    I'll more or less agree with Stockdale, as it's not an area blessed with a lot of talent. Darlow's been ok, but nowt special. However, I'd have Clark, Ritchie and Cairney in ahead of Jansson, Wood and Mooy. Fullbacks look weak, but we can have no complaints with the Anita/Yedlin jobshare and Dummett. No Ritchie is baffling.

    Personally, I don't think loan players should even count. Mooy is a Man City player, Jansson is a Torino player. And picking three strikers is just daft - the EFL Team of the Season plays a formation that no actual team plays? Where's the sense?

    I know he hasn't played much (18 games) but I'd have young Sessengnon at left back ahead of his teammate. He is the best player in the league. Easily.

    These things are always a load of bull. It's like the 'Garth Crooks' Team of The Week' bollox, usually includes 3 strikers, 2 wingers, 2 attacking midfielders, 3 defenders who scored that week and whichever goalie saved a penalty or came closest to scoring. It's not a TEAM FFS. I could write his team of the week before he even publishes it.

    Janssen aint even the best cb at my club.
    Ayling is as good a full back as any in the division.

    Manager wise, i think the guy at Fulham must be deserving of a shout.

    Brought in a few players for not a huge amount of money and got them playing some very nice football

    Carson has been pretty good in goal this year from what I have seen. Its not an area which is easy to judge unless you watch every game from every team all season though.

    I agree with you about the formation (don't agree with your decision in dropping any of Pontus, Wood and Mooy from the team). Pontus is essentially a Leeds player anyway, deal is all agreed for the summer and the only reason you'd drop him is if you haven't seen him, the guy is immense in every sense of the word. Personally I'd play a 4-3-3 but with actual wingers rather than 3 lone strikers up front and 3 CMs rather than Knockaert just filling in there.

    Pretty much spot on, except Clark is better than Lascelles. That said, why he didn't just stick it as a 4-4-2 with Ritchie right and Knockaert left, Shelvey/Cairney in the middle is beyond me!!

    Your Ritchie lad is a hell of a player. Always looks busy on the ball.

    He's a workhorse with an end product to him... I'm glad we have a player like him.

    Ritchie is our best player and one of the top few players in the league - possibly the best. So it's wrong.

    Rafa has rotated more than most managers so I'm not surprised we have a smaller representation than teams who have relied on a smaller pool of players, that just makes sense.

    46 games and no breaks... We'd suffer if we didn't rotate.
