Sabotage Times/Adam Clery - The ST End Of Season Football Awards: Smash Gate, Super Injunctions And Savage
Posted: 31 May 2011
"....The “He’s behind you” award for Pantomime Villain of the season.
'We’re certainly not short of perennial bell-ends this season, I dare say most football fans could produce their own personal XI of players they’ve lost all love and respect for during this campaign. Be it the usual boo-boys who’ve kept winding us up, or the former childhood heroes who, shock and horror, fancied ploughing a topless model instead of watching their wives age, we’ve all had our hearts broken.
- But we deserve it. If we’re going to exhaust people we barely know, or worse, allow their behaviour to wind us up then we’ve only got ourselves to blame. That’s why this award is handed out to those who’ve really taken a shit from up high onto the heads of some poor, umbrella-less men and women who truly, truly deserved better. We’re talking to you Flavio Briatore, and whoever else had a say in Queens Park Rangers decision to charge every loyal supporter (who’ve stuck by them during the clubs leanest of spells) out of the hoop for the privilege of watching Premier League football. Not cool guys, not cool.
- Winner: QPR Chairman Flavio Briatore.

Championship team of the season
Paddy Kenny (QPR) Kenny has been an outstanding performer in QPR's title-winning campaign. An ever-present in the league, the Irish shot-stopper notched up an incredible 25 clean sheets to help his side to the trophy.

Kyle Naughton (Leicester) Promising youngster Naughton has impressed on loan at Leicester from Tottenham this season, keeping things tight at the back as well as chipping in with five goals.

Ashley Williams (Swansea) An ever-present for the Swans this term, Williams has proved his capability at the back as well as contributing with four goals to aid his team's promotion bid.

Wes Morgan (Nottingham Forest) Popular stopper Morgan has been a constant force for Forest with a string of solid performances this season, utilising his physical strength and resolve to keep out the opposition.

Clint Hill (QPR) Hill has been a defensive rock for Rangers this term, making the left-back position firmly his own. Not scared of getting forward, he played a key role in his side's title push.

Adel Taraabt (QPR) Voted the PFA Championship player of the year, Taraabt has been a revelation at Rangers. Unpredictable, skilful and flamboyant, the Moroccan has enjoyed a stunning season, knocking in 19 goals and notching up a string of outstanding displays.

Scott Sinclair (Swansea) Sinclair has been the Swans' stand-out performer, proving himself a force to be reckoned with in front of goal. The prolific winger has netted 21 goals, crowned by a remarkable hat-trick in the play-off final against Reading.

Andy King (Leicester) King has enjoyed a season to remember with the Foxes, bagging himself a host of goals. The Welshman has been influential in Leicester's bid for promotion, providing the spark to Sven Goran Eriksson's midfield.

Grant Holt (Norwich) One of the division's top scorers, productive Holt has knocked in 21 goals to help the Canaries to promotion, including a memorable hat-trick in their thrashing of Ipswich. An expert at winning headers and holding up the ball, his contribution has been an impressive one.

Shane Long (Reading) Another industrious goalscorer with 21 goals to his name, Long's involvement for the Royals has been instrumental. Pacey and hardworking, his efforts have not gone unnoticed this season, with Premier League suitors expected to come knocking this summer.

Danny Graham (Watford) The Championship's top scorer with a remarkable 24 goals, Graham has reaped the rewards of his steady rise to prominence this term. A clinical finisher who is also strong in the air, the striker has played an integral role in the Hornets' campaign. Skysports
