BPL Team of the Season Shortlist - Part 1 - The Initial Shortlist

<p> We're nearing that time of year again, the time of year where FUT goes blue (with a horrible shade of gold) crazy and don't we just love it! But seeing as we're not quite there yet, perhaps a shortlist of the players that might be transformed into these monstrous blue cards is a reasonable idea? Yes? No? I don't care, you're getting it anyway.

We're nearing that time of year again, the time of year where FUT goes blue (with a horrible shade of gold) crazy and don't we just love it! But seeing as we're not quite there yet, perhaps a shortlist of the players that might be transformed into these monstrous blue cards is a reasonable idea? Yes? No? I don't care, you're getting it anyway.

In all seriousness though, below is going to be MY initial shortlist for who I think could make it into the BPL Team of the Season and over the next couple of weeks, we're going to be whittling it down with your input into a final team of 18 players. This does mean discussion and thankfully we have a lovely little comment section below this article in which you can do just that, so put forward your players and ideas and we'll go from there; Twitter of course is also available. Now, this doesn't just mean you can put "Where's...?!?!", if you wish to suggest a player please do it in the following format:

Name:
Club:
Reason:

Simple as that, 'tis really not tricky. Please include a few stats in the "reason" section as they always help but don't go overboard; the reasons will come in handy in the next article or two and I will add the best few to the articles themselves. Discussion as I said will go from there but FUTWIZ comment section rules do still apply. Now then, my shortlist. Let's do this!

Goalkeepers

GK: Petr Cech (Chelsea)

GK: Wojciech Szczesny (Arsenal)

GK: Artuc Boruc (Southampton)

GK: Tim Howard (Everton)

Full-backs

RB: Seamus Coleman (Everton)

LB: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

LB: Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal)

LB: Luke Shaw (Southampton)

Centre-backs

CB: Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)

CB: John Terry (Chelsea)

CB: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal)

CB: Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal)

CB: Phil Jagielka (Everton)

CB: Sylvain Distin (Everton)

CB: Dejan Lovren (Southampton)

CB: Curtis Davies (Hull City)

Central Midfielders

CDM: Fernandinho (Manchester City)

CDM: Yaya Toure (Manchester City)

CDM: Gareth Barry (Everton)

CDM: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)

CM: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

CAM: Adam Lallana (Southampton)

Wingers

RW: Adam Johnson (Sunderland)

LM: David Silva (Manchester City)

LM: Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

LM: Jay Rodriguez (Southampton)

Strikers

CF: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)

ST: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

ST: Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

ST: Danny Sturridge (Liverpool)

ST: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)

ST: Loic Remy (Newcastle)

... and we're done, I understand not everyone will agree with the initial shortlist but it's only my opinion. Card stats are only for visual effect, nothing to be taken overly seriously. That's about it really, if you'd rather use Twitter to get across your opinion, you can find myself here and the official FUTWIZ Twitter here.

The next article will be up in around a weeks time, by then hopefully we'll have sorted out the majority of who should/shouldn't be in the shortlist and just be finishing off the final squad. See you on Tuesday for my Team of the Week Predictions!

FIFA 17 Team of the Week Prediction: Week 9

<p> Back down to 14/23 last week which again, is less than what I'd like to be achieving. Then again, it's impossible to do well if EA decide to include the likes of Forsberg over Werner for precisely zero reason. Not bitter, promise! ;)

FIFA 17 Team of the Week Prediction: Week 8

<p> Scored 16/23 in Week 7, will take that given there were a couple of odd selections on EA’s part; let’s hope they’ve got their heads back on this week…

<p> A little disappointed with 14/23 in Week 6 if I'm honest, especially given others did a lot better :( - Onto this week where I'm sure things will improve!
