Sky's Shortlist for Team of the Season

Comments (1)

I just made the bizarre discovery that as many as 9(!) Everton players are in Sky's Shortlist for the Team of the Season: Tim Howard, Tony Hibbert, Joseph Yobo, Joleon Lescott (at LB!), Leon Osman, Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill, Phil Neville (in CM!) and Yakubu.

While even this sort of third-rate recognition is nice, some of the choices made by "Sky's team ot football experts" (Hibbert, Osman, Neville) demonstrate how unprofessional and unprepared they unfortunately are. Still, you can check this out at,19528,11096_3494184,00.html and have some fun with it.

In the PL Team of the Season I selected I could only make a case for Howard and Lescott from our lot. I would have definitely included Pienaar though; he is my EFC player of the season and he was the catalyst for our playing some semblance of normal football during the middle part of the season. Notice how he and Osman are pretty much identical in terms of physique and technique, yet whereas Pienaar almost always makes the right decision on the field, Osman always never does.

I find it amazing you talk of Osman being a poor choice, yet have no quibble with Arteta who has quite simply been the disappointment of the season.

I’d be more surprised with the lack of Pienaar.
