The festive period is well and truly upon us. A time when football comes thick and fast and no-one is thinking about the turkey. A host of cracking fixtures await in the Npower Championship this weekend with some tip top players on show.
Dream Team wasn’t just a show on Sky One, it’s a team that can be compiled week in week out, even in the second tier of English Football. So here is my pick of the players that are in action this weekend.
Dream Team XI
A. Bogdan (Bolton)
S. Byram (Leeds) M. Hudson (Cardiff) W. Morgan (Leicester) G. Friend (Middlesbrough)
E. Diouf (Leeds) J. Butterfield (Bolton) A. Guedioura (Notts Forest) W. Zaha (Crystal Palace)
C. Austin (Burnley) G. Murray (Crystal Palace)
So there you have it, that is the Dream Team XI that the Npower Championship has to offer this weekend. This team is full of skill, experience, youth and overall ability. It is a team that on their day could match anyone and is compiled from some of the best teams in the second tier, with all teams having played in the Premier League at some stage.
Picking these players was not an easy task. The Npower Championship is full to the brim of quality footballers and many more could have been included, with a substantial reason to argue why certain players are not in this team.
