Premier League Halloween Eleven

Its Halloween and in honor of the scary day I have created the special Premier League Halloween Eleven, consisting of players who have had a total nightmare since the beginning of the season.

The eleven is based on the horror show these players have experienced over the past couple of months. Some are beginning to emerge from their gruesome show of form, while others are still in hell, battling devils, demons and their own horrible performances. These are the players who have proved themselves in the past, however on current form they certainly a trick and not a treat for their fans and manager.

The Premier League Halloween Eleven – in  the non scary 4-4-2 formation of course.

 4-4-2

Subs: Ricky Lambert (Liverpool); Mikel Arteta (Arsenal); Chris Smalling (Manchester Utd); Andy Caroll (West Ham); Simon Mignolet (Liverpool).

Manager: Harry Rednapp (QPR)

Which players would you select for your Halloween?

The Premier League Title Run In

Premier League run in: Key Players
Premier League run in: Key Players

When you hear the words ‘Run In’ it normally guarantees drama until mid May. So grab a red pen, find a nice big wall and write in large letters ‘6 games to go’!

For the first time in years the run in features 3 teams – Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea. This time last season the title race was already over after Manchester Utd had stormed to an unassailable lead – it was kinda boring.

This season, however with Man Utd’s demise, the Premier League title run in is back to what it once was, packed with drama, tension, ups and downs while watching each team involved avoid bizarre slip ups against the teams at the other end of the table. And with three teams involved, this could go to the wire.

Premier League Valentines Day Eleven

Its Valentines Day weekend and in honor of the romantic day I have created the special Premier League Valentines Day Eleven – consisting of the eleven players most fans love.

The eleven has nothing to do with looks, but has everything to do with the sheer skill, effort, ability, along with the desire to win that these players demonstrate for their sides on a weekly basis. Despite earning a 6 figure salary every week, these players lead by example, they give more than 100% every time they play, they are not arrogant, petulant or full of their own importance. These are the players, that no matter what team you support, you cant help but love them.

The Premier League Valentines Day Eleven – in  the much loved 4-4-2 formation of course.

4-4-2

 

Subs: Tim Howard (Everton); Michael Carrick (Man Utd); Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea); Ricky Lambert (Southampton) Kevin Nolan (West Ham)

Manager: Tim Sherwood (Tottenham Hotspur)
