Team of the year

With the year almost over, we thought we would get in early doors, with our team of 2011! With cries of 'you don't know what ya doing' ringing around the it's a football thing office we decided to sit round the big table and throw some names into the hat, the formation of course 4-4-2.
After much bickering, bribing and sulking we finally got to our best eleven.......

So lets start between the sticks,

Joe Hart:  England's number one came out on top amongst inter Office voting for his consistency in the Man City goal since ousting Shay Given from the team, an excellent all round 'keeper, kept City in a number of games last season and has come on even more this term. Let's hope he also has a long international career ahead of him.......

Next up it's the case for the defence......

Starting from left to right, This guy has all the style of a classic 70's rock n rolla! His left peg has crossed many a sweet ball into the path of his attacking team mates! He can bend it, shake it and smack it! Loves to get stuck in, and if in doubt, he don't mind whacking it out! Calm under pressure you can rely on him from the spot! Our Left back of the year is Everton's Leighton Baines

In the middle we have Phil Jones, shining out like a big bright shiny thing @ the heart of the Blackburn defence that canny devil Sir Alex saw the potential early on and he has literally come on leaps and bounds without looking back! Versatile in the extreme, this fella could probably play in goal and for England he will be one to follow for years to come...

Partnering him we have a man full of big hair! After a shocking start to life @ Newcastle, this player has shown that he can hack it in the top flight. After singing for a massive £10.3 million, many blamed him for the clubs relegation a few season back, with remarks of my dead nan could of made that tackle along with F**k off back to Argentina you c**t! But after a few nights out with a bottle or two of Newcastle brown, Coloccini soon found his feet in Newcastle! some last ditch defending  along with the odd vital goal has turned this zero into a cult hero! 2011 has been a great year for Fabricio Coloccini

On the right we have Kyle Walker, was a bit of a loan ranger after joining Spurs from Sheffield United, going out to QPR and Villa before being welcomed back with open arms after serving his apprenticeship by that old wily sorcerer Harry Redknapp! Fighting for his place in the team he soon outed Corluka for the cumbersome slow work horse he was, Kyle on the other hand is lightning quick, linking up the attack on the right flank he has also progressed to the England big boys, where with some defensive tweaking he'll certainly be giving Glenn Johnson a run for his money....

So onwards and upwards, midfielding our way through the pack, we come up to our next City slicker! Some prefer gold, but there was only ever gonna be one winner in this team! This pint sized wonder can only handle a few down the pub, but on the pitch he can ping a ball 50 odd yards with out even trying! Stand up David Silva

In to midfield then with Scott Parker, who's come a long way from playing keepy uppy on a Maccy D's advert, sure he's been around the block and he hardly plays in the most attractive of positions - basically mopping up any balls in the midfield and laying it off......but he does that so well and offers much more than that too, leadership qualities, grit and determination. He could well have still been with West Ham in the Premiership if only his team mates had shown as much fight, but now in the heart of the Spurs midfield he has added new spunk. Not only that but he looks so much like an old school footballer and we like that a lot here @ 442!

An unsung hero is about to gate crash the team of the year! Another player that came in for some hardcore stick from his own fans, This Brazilian looked more like a Scottish international than a samba boy. After keeping his head down, this hard tackling defensive midfielder slowly but surely adapted to his surroundings on Merseyside. With the return of Kenny, Lucas has transformed himself , turning in man of the match performances almost every week! Lucas is now considered a vital part of the Liverpool jigsaw!

Our final midfield maestro is Clint Dempsey, consistently consistent in a Fulham team that has had it's ups and downs, a goal scoring midfielder who can also play just behind the front two. It just shows how much the American game has come on over the years that he could even make it into our team, this Yank is playing football with the right shaped ball and showing us limeys a thing or two in the process.

Up top we start with a player, who has had to bide his time @ Chelsea, loaned out @ the start of the year to Bolton, Sturridge has now cemented himself in AVB's starting 11! It was during his time with The Trotters that Sturridge finally showed us what he can do with the goal in sight! With the arrival of Torres, Sturridge was shipped out to Bolton, Many thought this was the end of his career with the blues, but after reaching double figures with the Trotters, Sturridge was quickly recalled for the start of the 2011/12 season!

And finally we have Wayne Rooney, this young fella has a lot of potential we've heard very little of him ourselves but we're hearing big things, apparently a bit of temperament problem but provided he can keep that in check he could go far.............
He finished last season strongly and started this one in much the same fashion, will there be many people's teams of the year without this firebrand Scouser?

So after a pack of hob nobs and pot and half of tea between the team, we finally came to an outcome for our team of 2011, The Midweeker stormed out half way through, after finding out we had no intention of including Gomes between the sticks! His shout of Andy Carroll up top also fell on deaf ears! as for the Weekender he came out with so many stats that by the end of his argument he ended up disagreeing with himself!
