Graeme Souness Picks Bizarre Team Of The Season, Acts As If Leicester City Don't Exist

Graeme Souness Picks Bizarre Team Of The Season, Acts As If Leicester City Don't Exist
By Gavin Cooney

It appears that baffling team selections are no longer the preserve of Garth Crooks. 

Crooks' team of the week on the BBC website usually features a few bewildering choices: his defensive midfield has previously featured Lukas Podolski and Troy Deeney. When the formation is not balls-to-the-wall crazy, the copy can be bizarre. Most notable was the rationale on Wayne Rooney, which seems to betray the fact that he chooses his team at dinner parties:

I was speaking to my uncle Ben on Saturday and said that Aaron Ramsey was almost certain to be the unanimous choice for footballer of the year. He took the glass of champagne out of my hand and said: ‘You mean Wayne Rooney, don’t you?’ I told him that he had made a very good point and promptly went home.

Graeme Souness picked his Team of the Season in today's Sunday Times, and it has prompted the flabbergasted reaction that is usually reserved for Crooks. Have a look at it below:

Ivanovic!? While the Serb has stabilised under Guus Hiddink lately, the earlier part of the season saw Ivanovic age before our eyes, with Swansea's Jefferson Montero in particular - who has done almost nothing since - tangling both his legs in knots and his thoughts with his worst nightmares.

Elsewhere, Souness has included just one player from Leicester City - Vardy - omitting N'Golo Kanté and Riyad Mahrez. Daley Blind is an equally odd selection.

Souness is a fine television pundit - he held his own among Giles, Brady and Dunphy on RTE for years and is second only to Jamie Carragher on Sky, but this team selection is very, very strange: featuring and selected by the Blind.
