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.
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:
|Highest Rank||Barcelona||Bayern||Barca, Sporting|
|ESC||European Super Cup|
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.
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:
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.
