It's like Match of the Day, but with stickmen
Here’s my team of the year so far.
It’s not necessarily the best team of 2009, but players who I think have been the most consistent and impressive in this half of the campaign.
In goal, Joe Hart, England’s best keeper right now: Fabio Capello must surely give him a chance to prove he’s worth a World Cup place.
At centre-back, Richard Dunne has been a revelation for Villa. Why on Earth did Manchester City ditch him for the overpriced Joleon Lescott?
Alongside him, Thomas Vermaelen at Arsenal looks to be another of Wenger’s good buys scoring and keeping out goals.
In midfield, the only thing that has stopped Craig Bellamy this season, apart from being caught offside 100 times, has been his dodgy knee (I know the feeling).
Meanwhile, James Milner has been Mr. Consistency, covering almost every position for Villa.
Wilson Palacios has slotted right into what is being labeled the Lucas Leiva position for Spurs, and Cesc Fabregas has just been Cesc Fabregas.
Up front, Wayne Rooney (or as the commentators call him, ROONEY!!!) is on top form and kissing his badge on a regular basis, while Jermain Defoe is doing his best to convince Capello he’s worth a place in his squad.
Darren Bent deserves a mention for his displays for Sunderland, and if Louis Saha could only stay fit he’d be pushing for a place too.
As for the manager, Roy Hodgson's reward for turning Fulham into quite a tidy outfit is the chance to fall out with Bellamy.
It’ll be interesting to see which players make the team of the season in May, and how the two squads match up.
But before then, Happy New Year everyone!
