It’s been banter central in the UKFF Towers since those muppets from the PFA announced their Man United team of the season. So with no further a do, here’s my alternative team of the season. You’ll be pleased to note that not one Man United player has made my 11.

Dexy's team of the season

  • Patrick

    Palacios in CM would be decent. Flew under radar a bit at Wigan but has been different class since he arrived at Spurs. Makes you realise just how bad Zokora really is.

    Also I reckon Jasskelinan (sp?) could give Schwarzer a close run. He makes a huge amount of saves in a team that gives away many many chances.

    Other than that, and taking into account how gash Robinho has been away from Eastlands, I’d say the above team is a solid shout.

    I’d actually say William Gallas, after his temper tantrum’s he has been superb, best defence in the league this year!

    I also think there hasn’t been one forward that stands out, hence why Dexy was forced to do a 4-5-1 formation. I’m will Patrick, he has been woeful away from home

  • James Webb

    I disagree, I think that Kevin Davies who has scored 12 goals from an outside right position has had a great season for bolton. He is such a handful and i’m surprised he hasnt been called up for England considering Capello likes playing a big man upfront.

    Also surprised no Villa players are in the team. I know they have struggled of late but for a large part of the season they pushed Arsenal for 4th place and with the smallest squad in the premiership.

    David Moyes has done a great job with Everton with Feillani really impressing me

  • Matt Quinn

    I agree with James Webb….. as much as the PFA awards rewarded those who had a good start to the season, this team seems to award those who have had a good end. Ie. No Villa players.

    To be honest though, i think its a good team. I’d make a couple of changes tho.

    Sagna. Most Arsenal fans i know think he has gone backwards. Ashley Young has tore him to pieces twice this season. Luke Young at Villa has had a superb season and deserves to be the team.

    I also will never rate Matt Taylor…. nice left foot, but thats about it. Like Kevin Nolan before him, he has scored a few from midfield but that doesnt make him a top quality midfielder.

    Finally, totally agree with Robinho being in there. I dont understand why people dont rate him. They must have been blinded by his price tag. Debut season and joint 2nd top scorer in the premier league. I dont think he will ever be truly world class but he is a very very good player.

    Also, i’d try and get Arteta in there somewhere too.

  • Mike Somerville

    Alexandre Song perhaps? Or maybe Simon Davies who started and played 52 games in a row untill last week (he was injured)- that’s professionalism.

    Good team though

  • gary cartwright

    robinho not worldclass what u been watching game with lemon eyes! did u see his goal aginst italy single handedly taking on the italy defence with ease and scoring a nice finish, he’s only played for real madrid aswell and regular in brazil team. thats wolrd class. im a west brom fan and second half season i’d say brunt’s done well but 2 put him in your team of the season means u want your head checking m8. can’t be botherede to dispute no more so im gonna put my team here; schwarzer, bosingwa, ferdinand, vidic, evra, ireland, xabi alonso, carrick, robinho, gerrard, ronaldo

    Gary mate, read the article, the team is chosen from non Man Utd & PFA nominated players.

    It’s not all about the big 4, as you should know supporting a championship club.

    As for Song, not to sure, he’s definitely one of the most improved players, along with Stephen Ireland.

  • Joel

    Spurs have the best home defensive record in the league, i think Gomes deserves a mention – yes he had a HORRIFIC start, but so its a testament to his attitude and his ability that he is on the cusp of setting a new record at WHL this year. Well played ‘The Octopus’.

    I couldn’t believe that stat when I heard it, only 9 home goals conceded, rule number 1 when picking yr fantasy league team, NEVER PICK A SPURS DEFENDER!

    Didn’t they go something like 70 games without a 0-0 before this season? All credit to Harry, he’s done an amazing job and must be just behind Moyes & Hodgson for manager of the season.

    Gonna put Beattie on the bench Dexy?
