Who will be on the championship team for the 2014-15 season?

The PFA Player of the Year awards are almost upon us. In a season that has seen the ever-competitive Championship at its most unpredictable, predicting your Team of the Season is far from easy; however, having evaluated the contenders, I will try to select and justify a worthy eleven.

Goalkeeper: Artur Boruc (Bournemouth)

The ‘holy goalkeeper’ will pray that he continues his excellent form as the Cherries approach their first promotion to the top flight. The former Celtic custodian has had a very consistent season, marginally outperforming the miser. Keiren westwood (Sheffield Wednesday) and Middlesbrough’s impressive collection of solid plugs.

Right-back: Simon Francis (Bournemouth)

We stayed on the south coast for our right back, with Simon Francis an integral part of Bournemouth’s game, both on defense and offense. His relationship with winger Matt Ritchie has caused endless problems for opposing teams all season. Losing to Francis for the job is Steven whittaker (Norwich City) who, similarly, delivers on both offense and defense.

Central Defenders: Tom Lees (Sheffield Wednesday) and Tommy Elphick (Bournemouth)

Two Toms at the back, with Lees’ defensive prowess appreciated by the Wednesdayites certainly ready to overlook his Leeds past. Much better colleague and club captain Elphick pips Steve cook, while there is an honorable mention for Ben gibson, youngest member of Middlesbrough’s stingy rear.

Left Back: George Friend (Middlesbrough)

Mirroring Francis to the right, Friend’s forward forays have been a crucial element in Middlesbrough’s game this year. At the same time, his defensive work has been just as you would expect from the meanest defense in the league. Dude pinches the groove right in front of Bournemouth Charlie daniels.

Midfield / Right Wing: Matt Ritchie (Bournemouth)

Our fourth Cherry is live link Ritchie, who tops the goal assist chart this season and has hit double digits for his own goal count. His association with Francis has been a feature of Bournemouth’s best work all season. Teammate Marc pugh is the player to lose in favor of the recent Scottish cap.

Center Midfielder: Will Hughes (Derby) and Grant Leadbitter (Middlesbrough)

The near-impossible task of selecting just two players from a plethora of worthy contenders sees Derby’s precocious talent Hughes hook up with Boro’s ever-dependable Leadbitter. Hughes, whose maturity in possession and eye for a pass believing in his tender years, will surely not remain a Championship player for long, regardless of his team’s ultimate fate this season. Take the creative central position ahead of creativity. Alan judge, who has had an excellent season at Brentford. The graft and effective Leadbitter has kept Boron active and provides the perfect complement to Hughes, marginally outperforming Harry arter (Bournemouth) and the Norwich Possibilities Specialist Bradley Johnson. An honorable mention is reserved for the highly improved Toumani diagouraga, Judge’s defensive midfield teammate for the Bees.

Left midfield / winger / attack: Patrick Bamford (Middlesbrough)

Almost the man to turn to for Middlesbrough this season in attack, Bamford’s goals have been frequent and invaluable, with the occasionally sensational blow included. Middlesbrough will hope to keep the Chelsea loan, but will likely have to play the Premier League next season in order to do so.

Forwards: Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) and Troy Deeney (Watford)

Fifth of a Cherries quintet, Wilson has proven to be a more than adequate replacement for last season’s top scorer, Lewis Grabban. Despite his breakneck pace and clever linking game, his scoring streak is still somewhat short of the league’s top scorer. Daryl Murphy, Ipswich’s target man, who can be considered somewhat unfortunate for missing a spot in the eleven. The same could be said of the Derby talisman Chris martin, for whom an injury at a crucial moment limited his impact on the scorers table, as well as the luck of his team. However, the final spot on the team goes to the more prolific one of Watford’s unstoppable front row: Troy Deeney. Quickly becoming a complete center forward, Deeney’s sharpness, air force and shooting ability see him sneak ahead of Murphy, Martin and his almost equally prolific Hornet teammate. Odion ighalo.

So to recap, my team is:

Boruc (Bournemouth), Francis (Bournemouth), Lees (Sheffield Wednesday), Elphick (Bournemouth), Friend (Middlesbrough), Ritchie (Bournemouth), Hughes (Derby County), Leadbitter (Middlesbrough), Bamford (Middlesbrough), Wilson (Bournemouth) ))), Deeney (Watford)

Keep an eye out for the awards ceremony on April 24 to see how many of my selections made it to the XI!
