Team so far:

GK: Michael Vorm, Swansea City AFC

__________________________________________________

This is going to be a tough one to get all the worthy candidates but definitely write-in a vote if your player isn't listed. I'll probably do a follow up poll with the 2nd and 3rd vote getters.

- This is based on THIS SEASON ONLY August through December English Premier League matches. Not Champions, Europa League, Carling Cup etc. So use your head.. don't just vote for the names you recognize (if that's the case just don't vote)

- Must have played in a minimum of 10 EPL games (That will be apparent in the selections) However, OTHER will be an option, so write the name in if you chose other.

-Current injured players are eligible as long as they've played in 10 games regardless of how long they're ruled out.


The candidates for CB:

Ledley King, CB, Tottenham Hotspur


Thomas Vermaelen, CB, Arsenal FC


Phil Jones*, CB/MF, Manchester United


Christopher Samba, CB, Blackburn Rovers


Daniel Agger, CB, Liverpool FC


John Terry, CB, Chelsea FC


Vincent Kompany, CB, Manchester City


Fabricio Coloccini, CB, Newcastle United


There are some other candidates who have had great weeks this year: Jonas Olsson, Roger Johnson, Jonathan Woodgate, Scott Dann but I think we'll get where we need to go with this.

*Phil Jones is also eligible at Defensive Mid if he doesn't advance in this poll. (In case you're wondering, Vidic just missed out on my 10-game requirement)

Painfully my vote is for Ledley King.. Spurs record with compared to without him is astounding. He's played in enough games for consideration, and to me, when he plays, he's one of the best defensive players out there.

I voted for Kompany, but him and King would be my choice at CB.

Steven Taylor is more important that Fabricio Coloccini, I have the stats to prove it....

Anyhoo.....Kompany and King

Thought Steven Taylor played RB? He was going to be on my list for that. I saw he was in a few teams of the week for both positions.

This one isn't as straight-forward with Jones/Vermalen, while deserving, play other positions a lot this season.

He is a horrendous right back, played their twice in his career. He is a Centre-Back and that is it.

Steve Taylor has been better than Coloccini this season for Newcastle

I wanted to vote Vermaelen because I love the way he plays but give me Vincent Kompany and Ledley King as the Centre Halfs.

My bad then.

Either way this one probably won't have much debate that I'm expecting once midfield comes into play.

What I was thinking about midfield is reserving one role for a holding mid, then 3 for just all around/wingers etc.. Not too interesting in balance per se, because it would be hard to omit players like Mata, Modric, Bale, Silva, etc..

I'm trying to think of the best way to handle it.. if dividing it up into specific position works better I can do that but I'm not really sure how to define certain guys who are generally known as wingers but play more centrally for their team.

I think you should do individual positions, although Mata and Silva are tricky to place.

^ Thanks Yankee.. had a brain fart there. He's the one who recently got injured but had been putting in some great shifts.

Kompany and King for me. I wish King didn't have the dodgiest knees, he is a once a generation type defender in my opinion.
