It's award season, ladies and gentleman. With Chelsea once again establishing themselves as a force at the top of the table, we can expect to see some Blue representatives on the PFA team of the year -- and it turns out we ended up with three, tying Liverpool for the most from a single club:
Congratulations to Petr Cech, Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard. All deserve a place on the team of the year, although I might cheekily suggest that snubbing John Terry, who's been magnificent, was a bit of a mistake -- he's almost certainly had a stronger season than Vincent Kompany.
But I don't want to get too caught up in who didn't get in, because this should be a celebration of those who did. Cahill especially has come along leaps and bounds this season, turning from a worryingly error-prone but physical centre back into a top defender almost overnight. It's a testament to the coaching he's receiving and his work ethic that he's come so far, so quickly. From a Cahill doubter: thank you for making me eat my words.
