A tongue-in-cheek account of the English Premier League season as it draws to a close (Hey Arvind, I guess you’d agree, do let me know of your nominees in case you don’t).
Team Player of the season: Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (Chelsea)
Defender of the season: Lauren (Arsenal), his self-goal against Manchester City would have done any striker proud…actually it was difficult to know which team he was playing for.
Goalkeeper of the season: Edwin Van der Sar (Fulham), for having the nerve to dribble one-on-one with Jose Antonio Reyes in the 15-yard box, only to find the ball in the net.
Team of the season: Leeds United, from contenders for Europe to battlers avoiding relegation; what’s going on guys?
Best striker: Henry Camara (Wolverhampton Wanderers), his woeful early season hit rock bottom in the home game against Manchester United, did well to redeem himself in the closing rounds though.
Best goal celebration: It’s Jimmy again with his MJ-inspired moonwalk: at least that’s what he seemed to be trying each time he scored a goal.
