Premier League Team of the Season, 2007-08

I did one of these last year, so I guess I should keep up the tradition. If you don't like the world game, feel free to ignore.

Goalkeeper: David James (Portsmouth)
Right Back: Bacary Sagna (Arsenal)
Centre Back: Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United)
Centre Back: Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United)
Left Back: Joleon Lescott (Everton)
Right Midfield: Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)
Central Midfield: Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal)
Central Midfield: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
Left Midfield: Ashley Young (Aston Villa)
Striker: Emmanuel Adebayor (Arsenal)
Striker: Fernando Torres (Liverpool)

Disappointed that Arsenal's beautiful football was not rewarded with anything (apart from plenty of bad reffing decisions and bad luck which cost them the season). But few could deny that Manchester United were the standout team this season and deserved their victory.

Man, that was painful to say.

Arsenal's French defender Bacary Sagna - the league's best right back and best hairstyle.
