End Of Season Edition ft. Magnificent 11

Been more than 6 months since I started writing and in meantime we had bunch of (mostly meaningless) player and team rating systems. Today we conclude 2013-14 season.

 

Lineals

Karabaukspor beat Sivasspor in the last week of the Turkish League and kept the Sandeman trophy for 2nd year in a row. There is still a chance that Karabukspor might be in Europe next year as 2 clubs above them are under investigation for match fixing. Let’s have a look at all the seasonal title holders:

All the bonus points have been assigned. And the winner of 2013-14 season is: REAL MADRID!

Bayern looked so dominant back in March that this has been a bit of surprise but they deserved it. In the final week; Sporting passed Basel on its way into top 40.

EPL still has most games not o miss; but La Liga trumps it quality wise. Top 3 of 4 teams are Spanish with 5 more in top 40. Well done La Liga.

 

. #Teams #Points #dingoW
Spa 7.5 42.2 17
Eng 7.0 27.2 30
Germ 6.0 24.8 6

Team of the Season

And finally team of the season according to dingoR(Top 4 Leagues) with MVP Suarez as captain. I decided on a weird 3-4-3 formation:

 

Buffon 13.1
Diego Godín 8.4
Skrtel 10
Benatia 9.1
Gerrard 9.7
Yaya 13.1
Gareth Bale 10.7
Raffael 11.8
Suarez 16.9
Messi 13.3
C.Ronaldo 14.1

 

Perhaps Raffael is the most surprising name; 15 goals in 29 games for a midfielder did the trick. Liverpool squeezed in 3 players which shows their quality but perhaps also lack of depth. Bayern does not have one player because the points were more or less equally distributed among very high quality players. Benatia is perhaps leaving Roma just after one season for greener pastures.

 

We’ll be back soon with what to watch world cup edition.
