One of the greatest calendar years of Barclays Premier League football sadly comes to an end last week with the final set of games on Saturday. It has been a year where Manchester City finally got their hands on a major trophy and have become the best team in the country after another summer of sensational spending. A year that saw Birmingham City and West Ham fall through the Premier League trap door to be replaced by the first ever Welsh club to grace the top flight.
It has also been a year to relish in terms of individual talent with a special group of youngsters beginning to flourish along with a whole host of foreign talent that have arrived in England making the Premier League the best league in the world.
I am sure that 2012; that obviously includes the Euro’s; will be even better to watch for the supporters and with the league becoming even more competitive the amount of talent big name signings will only increase. But enough about the future, here is my Premier League XI for 2011.
