What a joke and biased list from Uefa, i know that am only naming Liverpool players here but, Reina, Mascherano and Skrtle, or Clichy of Arsenal should be in there. When the heck has Steven Gerrard played right mid this season, If Messi is considered as a Striker then so should Ronaldo, no way is he a right mid, and what the fvck has Arjen Robben done to deserve a place in the list, he has been injured most of the time, am pretty sure there have been left wmid's that have played better then in Europe, Ashley Young to name one. Most of the player in there are just because of the European champion ship not becuase of how they have played over the full year.

From the list:

CASILLAS
SAGNA VIDIC CARRA EVRA
RONALDO XAVI FÀBREGAS SNEIJDER
VILLA MESSI

Coach- Ferguson:yuck:

I was going to select Cesc as well, but he dwindled off mid season and wasn't the same as he was first half of the season.

I wish Cech would stop getting picked for these. Guy is nowhere near as good as he used to be.

Ok well the UEFA Team of the Year doesn't need to be perfectally balanced tactically.
There is no way Senna should be picked over Xavi (as great as Senna was).

Why are so many people picking van der Sar :wth: He's well past in, the majority of United fans I know even admit it. Pepe Reina has been the best keeper in the Premiership for at least 18 months, Cech is just living off his pre head injury form it seems.

Van Der Sar has been outright bad for most of the past year. That keeper list is weird in general, though. Cesar or Reina deserve it a lot more than Edwin.

The forwards list is sick, why do they always have to go with 4-4-2? I would go with 4-3-3 and pick 3 forwards. Seriously, its by far the best striking list in the uefa team of the year selection.
