This is based on the 19 WSL League and cup games I have attended this season. I have obviously seen Chelsea Arsenal and Bristol a lot more times than any other teams for geographical reasons.
So my team is biased towards them because I have seen their players in action more often. There is no left back because I don’t remember any outstanding performance in the games I’ve seen this season but I have put two left footed midfield players to compensate for it.
GK Mary Earps Doncaster Belles
An explosive goalkeeper, did very well in a tough season for her club side. Also the England U19 number 1.
RB Dunia Susi Chelsea Ladies
Very consistent and also bring attacking options down the flank.
CB Jemma Rose Bristol Academy
So strong in one on one situation, excellent header and can score from long range as well.
CB Sophie Ingle Chelsea Ladies
Very reliable and tidy in the position, won many headers and battles.
DM Chloe Jones Liverpool Ladies
A delighful and powerful left foot, works very hard and provide balance to her team.
CM Jo Potter Birmingham City Ladies
Another excellent left footed player. Superb passing technique and eye-foot coordination.
DM Jess Fishlock Bristol Academy
Best player of the year by a mile. Nuff said.
AM Jordan Nobbs Arsenal Ladies
A very intelligent player who gets the timing right, can play one touch football and finally found a starting place this year.
RW Lucy Staniforth Lincoln Ladies
Set pieces delivery created so many goals. Accuracy power everything you need, she delivered time and time again for the whole year.
CF Jodie Taylor Birmingham City Ladies
She is powerful, she is fast and has an eye for the goal. Combined well with all the other forwards and midfield players from Blues.
LW Rachel Yankey Arsenal Ladies
As consistent as ever on her left wing. Evergreen.
For the player of the year 2012, there is only one possible winner and it is Jessica Fishlock. I am still awaiting Hope Powell’s explanation why she left her out of the Team GB squad.
Especially you know that she could definitely have done something on the Canada game for example.
