With the end of 2014 we'll say goodbye to a truly fantastic year of football that produced more than just a few genuine surprises.

There was the extraordinary showcase of the World Cup, including Germany's masterful display against Brazil, the shock and awe factor of Real Madrid's last minute smash-and-grab Champions League victory over Atletico, Manchester United's dramatic spiral downward from the summit of English football and, of course, the epic Premier League title race.

For fans based in England the latter of those two points will probably have been standout highlights amongst the rest of the entertainment. United proved they couldn't cope in the immediate aftermath of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement whilst Liverpool staged a surprisingly effective title charge and Manchester City only just claimed the league.

It was a season to be proud of for English football as a whole, and the Premier League once more proved why it's considered the most competitive in the world by the masses. As we reach the end of one of the most eventful years the division has ever witnessed though the time comes to pick the all-star team of the year.
