It is that time of year again, for what is turning into annual tradition on this blog: my Premier League prediction table. Last season’s attempt to predict who would finish where saw me correctly name five places, with another six guesses being one position away, as well as being accurate in picking City as FA Cup winners, QPR to be first in the Championship. That’s almost matching The Guardian’s own guesses (spot on five times, close seven times). As Kryten would say: “ah; smug mode.”

Oh my giddy Aunt!
Here’s a quick quiz for you all to try. It may be easy, it may be hard. Don’t cheat, and don’t ask for help.
Below are 10 groups of 3 teams, all of which are the whole careers (excluding brief loan moves) of certain ex-England internationals. Try and name those ten players. I’ve tried my best to avoid any duplications, so hopefully one wont sneak through.
Tweet all ten answers in one go to @adwinn, or DM/email if you prefer not to spoil it for others :)
As I’ve specifically reported on North-West teams for the first time this season, and watched many more games then just Manchester United, it seemed only right that if I were to pen a “Best XI” that it were to have a North-West theme to it.
So here are my eleven, based on individual performances over the season, and how it’s effected their own teams games, and league standings. I originally set out to not pick more than three players for a team, but as I worked things out, this rule did not need to be utilised. What this resulted in, is the XI best players from the North-West this season, in my opinion.
“Kenny has lifted the place, the supporters, the players and everyone connected with the club and now we can all look forward to a bright future”
Steven Gerrard’s words will be echoed all around the red half of Liverpool this evening, fresh from the news that Kenny Dalglish has been signed as permanent club manager for the next three years.
