The Premier League season is winding to a close. If the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) can announce their shortlist for the player of the year, then we're plenty close enough to the campaign's end for me to pick mine.
So who will it be? The rampant Robin Van Persie? Wayne Rooney's always a popular choice. And what to do with Mario Balotelli? Can you really include him in a Top 25?
How do you handle the massive gap between the top few teams and the rest of the league? Can a player from Swansea or Sunderland make the list? What about Wolves? Okay, that last one was a step too far to keep a straight face. Maybe Blackburn, though.
Here's the list. The top 25 players of the 2011-12 Premier League season. Enjoy.
