A-League My Team of the Season (As it Stands)
Jamie Young, Rhyan Grant, Alex Grant, Luke DeVere, Liberato Cacace, Steven Ugarkovic, Luke Brattan, Alessandro Diamanti, Diego Castro, Jamie Maclaren, Roy O’Donovan
Jamie Young (Goalkeeper- Brisbane Roar)- Young helped the Brisbane Roar resurrect their Season as he was outstanding; Young was responsible almost single handily for the Brisbane Roar being in the top 6 at the point at which the Season was postponed.
Rhyan Grant (Right Back- Sydney FC)- Rhyan Grant was outstanding; he carried the team to some extent with his freakish work rate; he made many a marauding run playing effectively as a right winger when his position on the team sheet was a right back.
Alex Grant (Centre Back- Perth Glory)- Alex Grant was a revelation for the Perth Glory.
Luke DeVere (Centre Back- Wellington Phoenix)- DeVere played a key role in Wellington Phoenix current position of 3rd on the A-League ladder.
Liberato Cacace (Left Back- Wellington Phoenix)- Picking Cacace at left back was a no brainer!
Steven Ugarkovic (Centre Midfield- Newcastle Jets)- Ugarkovic worked tirelessly and predominantly unrewarded, until he started to score goals later in the Season.
Luke Brattan (Centre Midfield- Sydney FC)- Brattan showed great endeavour and combined well with other players in the middle of the park.
Alessandro Diamanti (Attacking Midfield- Western United)- Diamanti finished the Season with 5 goals and 7 assists; at times he carried Western United on his back; he is perhaps the best import in the history of the A-League!
Diego Castro (Attacking Midfield- Perth Glory)- Castro finished the Season with 4 goals and 7 assists.
Jamie Maclaren (Striker- Melbourne City)- Maclaren has scored the most goals this Season as it stands, however it’s not only Maclaren’s goal scoring ability that is impressive, but the unrewarded runs that he made off the ball. Remarkably, as it stands at the moment with 18 goals and an impressive 4 assists!
Roy O’Donovan (Striker- Brisbane Roar, Newcastle Jets)- O’Donovan was let go by the Brisbane Roar, despite being their top scorer. He worked extremely hard at the Newcastle Jets helping their resurgence. With O’Donovan in the team, the Newcastle Jets were a more formidable line up.
