Sideshow Bob recognised

Congratulations to Sideshow Bob, whose excellent performances for us this season have earned him the recognition of his peers, and a place in the PFA Premier League Team of the Season.

Sadly, Sideshow Bob is the only one of our players to make the XI with Joe Hart handed the goalkeeper's jersey ahead of Tim Krul, and Messrs Dreamboat and Mr T losing out in midfield to Scott Parker, Yaya Toure, Gareth Bale and David Silva. 

The presence of three Spurs players (Young Player of the Year Kyle Walker also getting the nod ahead of statistician’s choice Danny Simpson) rather illustrates the fact that the voting is done just after Christmas, before the wheels came off Droopy’s wagon.

Equally unlucky is Demba Ba, whose early-season form must have seen him push Robin van Persie (who presumably mustn’t want to score for Arsenal at present) and Shrek for the striker’s slots.

Still, can’t really argue with too many of the choices and a massive congratulations to Sideshow Bob, who, only two years ago, was named in the Championship team of the year.
