    Do you agree with this?

    First off, I love Jamie...arguably one of the best centre half we have ever had. But why has he got Silva in there? considerng the (albeit cut short) season Mane has had for us, or the fact Coutinho has scored 8 more goals than him this season?

    Thoughts?

    Even Jamie wouldn't put himself in the top half dozen CBs we have ever had!

    Jamie said he wanted the midfield to be in a diamond formation on Twitter.

    For those who would rather see the XI in the thread not just linked (the lazy man's approach to starting a thread) :

    De Gea
    Azpilicueta
    David Luiz
    Aldeweireld
    Eriksen
    Kante
    Alli
    Silva
    Sanchez
    Kane
    Hazard

    3-4-3 reading L>R if someone wants to put that in the OP laid out as a lot do
    People will believe what they want to believe

    Because an on paper theoretical XI needs to be in his preferred formation rather than suited to the best players...? Does seem a little on the lazy side, picking eight players from spudz and chelski and one of the others being a fairly obvious choice GK.....

    Maybe he should have applied the Garth Crooks selection method, pick 7+ (top) scorers in attack, midfield and even in defence

    I know, clicking a link is hard work. I tried 3 times initially ... and even then I had to stop for a drink.

    Spurs and Chelsea were the best teams with the best players this season.

    It's hard to understand a team of the Season which has Coutinho over Mane.
    No Lukaku?

    Using consistency as the main factor to determine team of the year mine would be as follows;

    First XI

    Courtois
    Azpilicueta
    Luiz
    Alderweireld
    Eriksen
    Kante
    Ali
    Hazard
    Sanchez
    Kane
    Costa

    Subs: Lloris, Alonso, Cahill, Vertongen, Dembele, *Coutinho, Lukaku

    *Mane unlucky to miss out due to season ending injury, Coutinho's late form just pips him imo

    I think most XIs will have the same basic core set of players, EOAS' XI looked more or less the same bar keeper and Costa at first glance (which I think are the only differences, actually the one confusing me was Hazard in a different position so it's 2 with Hazard for Silva and Costa for Hazard as well as Courtois for De Gea)
    People will believe what they want to believe

    How did he last so long as an lfc player is beyond me,he was tottally useless untill rafa came along,then he stabbed him in the light of day,so to call him one of best is very disrespectful.to all gthe other great centre backs we had.

    I disagree with that, I do regard him as one of the best CB's we have ever had.

    Good isn't it? And no doubt they claim something like they've examined, and graded, every single action by every player to come up with a 'score'. And ended up with Lovren and Otamendi as CBs. Good work.

    Stoke shouldn't even nominate anyone. Can the crossbar be Stokes best player?

    I disagree with Carra's selection.

    Dr Gea is certainly not the best keeper in the league. I put him 3rd behind Lloris and Courtios. He was the best keeper in the league. Not anymore.

    Here's mine with a 4-3-3 formation.

    Courtois

    Walker

    Vertonghen

    Aldervereild.

    Rose.

    Kante

    Waynama

    Lallana

    Hazard

    Kane

    Mane.
