We are just past one third of the way though the season with 16 games played of the schedule of 46 games and we are seeing a number of Championship Teams of the Season come out.
Sky Sports pundit Ian Holloway covers the Championship and he has issued his team and it includes three Newcastle players – Jonjo Shelvey, who has called a genius and the best player he has ever seen in the Championship.
Jamaal Lascelles – makes Holloway’s Championship Team of the Season
Captain Jamaal Lascelles and striker Dwight Gayle also make the cut.
There are others in the Newcastle team who could make the official team when it’s announced by the EFL next May and they include center-back Ciaran Clark, who is improving and looking the part in almost every game now.
Once Aleksandar Mitrovic gets more games he could also make the team and Matt Ritchie must have a good chance although Brighton’s Anthony Knockaert, a target of ours in the summer, has got the nod in Ian’s team.
Here is Ian Holloway’s Championship Team of the Season – so far.
Al-Habsi (Reading), Bruno (Brighton), Jansson (Leeds), Lascelles (Newcastle), Malone (Fulham), Kachunga (Huddersfield), Shelvey (Newcastle), Mooy (Huddersfield), Knockaert (Brighton), Abraham (Bristol City), Gayle (Newcastle)
