    16/17 EPL Team of the Season

    If you want to put this in General Football, feel free to move it, but I made a thread, so suck it nerds.

    I used BBC's Team of the Season, and while mine has some obvious bias, Spuds actually lead with 4 selections.

    I also just threw up, a lot.

    Nice to see Nash has the best dribbler in the league, Kante, playing left wing instead of Hazard. #Management101

    I'm not doing the bbc sport's thing because it's so fucking dumb that you can't pick the highest assister for the season who isn't in 'their list'

    GK - Fraser Forster
    RB - Kyle Walker
    CB - David Luiz
    CB - Toby Alderweireld
    LB - Marcos Alonso
    CMF - N'Golo Kante
    CMF - Dele Alli
    CMF - Kevin De Bruyne
    LWF - Eden Hazard
    RWF - Alexis Sanchez
    CF - Harry Kane

    If Zlatan didn't miss the last two months of the season I'd have included him because I don't think 1 player has meant more to one team this year than what he's meant to Utd. Same reason I'm not including Mane.

    Fraser Forster was really awful for the first few months of the season.

    I don't think any goalkeeper has been brilliant this year, if I'm honest. Pickford is very good but him and Heaton might be two more Mignolet's, where they look amazing for relegation threatened teams because they have to save loads of shots, but as soon as they step up they seem to lack a little something.

    Outside of a mistake away to Burnley, Ben Foster has been brilliant for Albion and picked up our player of the year award by a big margin. He was the only keeper to get a nomination in the football writer's player of the season. The stats don't really back that up because he's in single digits for clean sheets but that isn't his fault, more so our defenders switching off in games.

    I didn't know who to pick for keeper because either the big boys have been disappointing (De Gea) or their defence has been so great they don't have to do much (lloris, Courtois).

    De gea is one of those keepers who needs pressure on them. he need constant attacks in order to keep focused like he did under van gaal and moyes. He shown if he doesn't get that, he loses his concentration which leads to mistakes like he did under fergie and some games this season for example the Stoke game. Stoke barely attacked and when they did de da wa troubled and it lead to de gea fumbling IT allowing Allen to score.


    Also I think Ben Forster is one of the most underrated GK in the premier league era

    Re: 16/17 EPL Team of the Season

    De Gea is the best keeper in the world today and walks into any team.

    Foster is fine but there are several better in the Premier League.

    Cech, Lloris, DDG, Courtois, Pickford, Schmeichel, Butland, Heaton all better imo.

    Courtois

    Alderweireld - Luiz - Azpilicueta

    Sanchez - Eriksen - Alli - Kante - Hazard

    Kane - Lukaku

    Alonso, Sigurdsson and Mane are my bench boys.
