Danny Drinkwater: Takes his place in Championship PFA Team of the Year

Leicester City and Burnley have been recognised for their stunning seasons with three representatives apiece in the Championship PFA Team of the Year.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester have stormed to promotion and can reach a century of points if they avoid defeat on the final day of the campaign.

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender Wes Morgan and midfielder Danny Drinkwater have all been named in the PFA's side of the season.

Burnley will join Leicester in the Premier League next term and Kieran Trippier, Jason Shackell and Danny Ings all take their place in the team chosen at Sunday night's awards ceremony.

Leeds United's leading scorer Ross McCormack joins Ings in attack, while third-placed Derby County are represented by Craig Bryson and Will Hughes.

Andy Reid of Nottingham Forest takes a spot in midfield, while Ipswich Town's Aaron Cresswell lines up at left-back.

Championship PFA Team of the Year: Schmeichel (Leicester); Trippier (Burnley), Cresswell (Ipswich), Morgan (Leicester), Shackell (Burnley); Drinkwater (Leicester), Reid (Nottingham Forest), Bryson (Derby), Hughes (Derby); Ings (Burnley), McCormack (Leeds).

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
