With the calendar about to turn to 2009, its time to name the second annual Only Time Will Tell Starting 11. During the course of year the members of the Only Time Will Tell staff have watched countless games to develop this list.
Goalie: Iker Casillas Real Madrid. Back stopped the Spanish Champions and the Euro 2008 Champions. Not a bad year.
Defenders: Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid. Can play in the center or out on the outside.
Defender: Rio Ferdinand, Manchester United. Lifted the EPL Trophy and Mr. Big Ears.
Defender: John Terry, Chelski. Sure he missed the penalty but overall still one of the best.
Defender: Jose Boswinga, Chelski. Fixture at Porto before moving to the bridge. Was one of the few bright lights for Portugal at the Euros.
Midfielders: Franck Ribery, Bayern Munich: By far the best player in Germany.
Midfielder: Marcos Senna, Villarreal. Was the anchor of the Spanish midfield during the Euros and has been an anchor for his club.
Midfielder: Iniesta, Barcelona: During the La Liga season he was ok but during the Euros he was amazing.
Midfielder: Ronaldo, Manchester United. What do you say. Simply amazing.
Forwards: Fernando Torres, Liverpool. First season in the EPL was the stuff dreams are made off.
Forward: Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Inter Milan. Was ok during the first part of the year, but the second half has been his been special.
