My FA WSL 2014 Team of the year

Goalkeeper : Carly Telford ( Notts County)  . Keeping goal in the best FA WSL defense, best goals per game conceded rate  (0.62) . A very athletical and agile goalie. You do wonder why she has so few England caps when you consider the goalies’ performances that kept her out for so many years.

Defender : Lucy Bronze  ( Liverpool) playing at right back or center back in a back 4 or at wing back alongside a back 3.   She has the most touches per game in the whole FA WSL (88.43),  5th player in the number of passes received per game (37.64), 2nd in interception per game (4.14), 6th in touches in the opposition half (44.14) nearly exactly half of the touches she has per game. She is also 4th in the passes per game.

Defender  : Aoife Mannion  ( Birmingham) she had a very good season at center back and especially during the Champions League campaign against top quality opponents like Marta or Press.

Defender : Gilly Flaherty ( Chelsea) A very important player from the team that was close to winning the title. Leadership and leading by example.

Defender :Rachel Corsie ( Notts County) An excellent season for the Scottish defender in the best defensive team. Named captain as well.

Midfield : Leah Williamson ( Arsenal) The breakthrough player of the season. A year ago was playing in the U17 national cup in MK stadium and was back to win the FA Women’s Cup a season later.

Midfield  :Jo Potter ( Birmingham) Another consistent season for the left footed midfield player who was at the heart of all the play for Birmingham City Ladies

Midfield : Ji So-Yun ( Chelsea ) the typical playmaker, the natural number 10 rarely found in England.

Forward : Eniola Aluko ( Chelsea)  A fantastic season creating chances for the other forwards and usettling defenses

Forward : Nikita Parris ( Everton) She was most influential for Everton and the focal point. She was also clinical when things mattered at the U20 WC unlike other forwards.

Forward : Fran Kirby ( Reading) exceptional season for the Division 2 forward. 29 goals in all competition.


Subs and definitely worth a mention :

Goalkeepers : Libby Stout ( Liverpool) a great season for the champions for the American goalkeeper

Midfield : Kelly Smith ( Arsenal)  back to her best when available, a real shame she cannot play very often these days

Forward : Jess Clarke ( Notts) scored important goals for Notts and also created chances for others
