PFA player of the season

Teddy Sheringham has been voted PFA player of the season, am I the only one that thinks this is ludicrous? He's not even the best striker in the Premiership let alone the best player. Marcus Stewart has made the transition from First division to the Premiership seamlessly and his 21 goals (as many as Sheringham) has surely been a factor in this team, favourites to go down at the start of the season, finishing at least in the top 4 surely. Lee Bowyer whose outstanding performances against top European opposition, the kind that have put Man Utd and Teddy Sheringham in their place this season, have surely put him amongst the top players in the Premiership, even discounting the problems he's had off the pitch. Roy Keane? Uniteds' best player this season by a mile, he and Vieira are the most influential two players in the premiership, as well as two the most gifted. Steve Gerrard?

All of these players' acheivements pale in to insignificance compared with Teddy Sheringhams' performances in the 2000/01 season. Coming to the end of his career, third choice striker, 21 goals in 36 appearances for a team that I could score 20 for. You make your mind up.

Team of the season

The team of the season has also been announced - no Beckham, understandable. Silvinho in, even though Ashley Cole has spent most of the season at left back. Wes Brown? good start but he's looked a bit didgy recently to be honest, there are better centre halves in the Premiership to be honest. Teddy Sheringham is presumably a better striker than Opta's best forward Sylvain Wiltord or the golden boot candidates Marcus Stewart, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Thierry Henry. Here it is anyway

Fabian Barthez

Steven Carr (Tottenham)Jaap Stam (Man Utd)Wes Brown
