The Premier League’s ‘One Season Wonder’ XI
There’s nothing better than a ‘One Season Wonder’ – a player who wows the fans and pundits alike, only to prove they are in fact completely useless and Lady Luck has been carrying their career for the past season.
The best part of watching a player like this is the moment when you’re in the pub, surrounded by your friends watching the game and finally, after a season of being proved wrong, you can turn and say to you compatriots: “I told you he was rubbish”.
This collection of Premier League players are a best XI of complete one season wonders new and old playing in an exotic 3-4-3 formation. Some started off well but quickly petered out, others had a single inexplicable season of brilliance, and a few finally reached their best, before crashing back down to earth.
