Eredivisie Team of the Season 2013/14

We had the VI and de Telegraaf team of the season rankings in the other thread but what do we XT'ers think. After all we know more about football than they do

I would go with:

Formation 4-3-3

Cillessen (Ajax)

Arias (PSV) - de Vrij (Feyenoord) - Bjelland (Twente) - Kongolo (Feyenoord)

Clasie (Feyenoord) - Blind (Ajax)

Tadic (Twente)

Schone (Ajax) - Finnbogasson (H'veen) - Kostic (Groningen)

Pretty similar actually

Cillessen

Janmaat - De Vrij - Bengtsson - Kongolo

Gutiérrez - Blind
Tadic

Schone - Pelle - Kostic

De Vrij coz I couldn't think of anyone else and he actually has stood out in the last month or two.

Leerdam would have probably won the RB award if the season had ended in January. Major collapse since then.

Janmaat for Arias and Gutierrez for Clasie are good alternatives ( i just wanted a PSV'er in there )

I choose Bjelland over Bengtsson just because he is left footed (LCB) and he has played more minutes.

I wouldn't choose Pelle over Finnbo however.

Guys that just missed the cut i guess were Toornstra and Ziyech in midfield. Can't think of any other notable absentees.

GK - Bizot (Groningen)
RB - Janmaat (Feyenoord)
CB - Eric Botteghin (Groningen)
CB - Bjelland (Twente)
LB - van Aanholt (Vitesse)
LCM - Blind (Ajax)
RCM - Schone (Ajax)
RW - Tadic (Twente)
LW - Kostic (Groningen)
CF - Finnbogasson (Heerenveen)
CF - Pele (Feyenoord)

Went with Bizot over Cillessen just because he obviously has more to do than Cillessen who a lot of the time doesnt have too much to do in games at Ajax Arena. Bizot made some great saves - especially from penalties - and was the key player in the 1-0 win at home to PSV.

Left-back probably the hardest to choose, nobody really standing out over the season. Had to give it to Van Aanholt though as he was decent in first half but after the break like rest of his colleagues! Blind rarely played there, and Kongolo only played 17 games - but granted looked decent.

Cillisen
Janmaat/Arias- Leeuwin - Botteghin - Blind
Mokotjo - Guttierez
Ziyech/Schone
Tadic - Pelle/Finboggasson - Kostic


Other players worth mentioning:

Boer(Zwolle), Atsu and Piazon(Vitesse), Gudelj and Johansson(AZ), Bjelland(Twente), Toornstra(Utrecht), Clasie and De Vrij(Feyenoord), Depay(PSV)

Janmaat and Arias a toss coin flip because they both player really well. Surprised to see you guys all picking the well known central defenders. To me Botteghin and Leeuwin really stood out and I dont understand why someone could pick De Vrij in front of them. I have picked Blind at LB because I thought I couldnt omit Mokotjo or Guttierez from the squad. Otherwise I would have left Mokotjo out, have Blind at DM and Van Aanholt at LB. I know he didnt play at LB but I think Mokotjo deserves to be in this team more than Van Aanholt or kongolo. Both Ziyech and Schone were pretty well, so I couldnt pick one, same applies to Pelle or Finbogasson. I would have had Piazon in the team had he not went down hill after the winter break and even though Depay was a bright spot in the PSV team I prefer Kostic over him and I think Kostic was the driving force of a really solid Groningen team. Tadic is a no brainer to me and I cant believe Afellay left him out.

Боље да се кајем зато што јесам, него зато што нисам

You're right about Leeuwin. I forgot about him

Like said, went for de Vrij as I couldn't think of anyone else. He has had a good last 3 months, but before that, he looked a bit lost.

I've only seen Cambuur play once or twice so i don't know anything about Leeuwin.

I was also impressed by Botteghin this season (had him in my team of the half-season) so good to know I'm not the only one

Gouweleeuw was an actual target for Barcelona not long ago, nobody seems to have picked up on him. I think AZ's lazy away form after Europa League games has really put people off picking their players. There's a great team in there that could easily be top 4 contenders.
