Earlier today the shortlists for the EFL Awards 2018 were released and Aston Villa feature!

Awards will be distributed between 12 categories at the ceremony on Sunday April 15 at the London Hilton on Park Lane in recognition of the season of 2017/18.

The full shortlists for anybody interested can be found on the following link – Click Here.

Sitting in fourth place in the Championship table as I type this, Villa certainly don’t dominate the shortlists but we do feature in the Championship Team of the Season.

Goalkeeper:
John Ruddy – Wolverhampton Wanderers

Defenders:
Ryan Sessegnon – Fulham
Conor Coady – Wolverhampton Wanderers
John Terry – Aston Villa
Ryan Fredericks – Fulham

Midfielders:
Tom Cairney – Fulham
Ruben Neves – Wolverhampton Wanderers
James Maddison – Norwich City

Forwards:
Matej Vydra – Derby County
Bobby Reid – Bristol City
Albert Adomah – Aston Villa

Manager – Neil Warnock – Cardiff City

With 13 assists to his name so far quite why Robert Snodgrass doesn’t feature is beyond me, but congratulations to Terry and Adomah for breaking through the Fulham obsession.

Although to be fair, the EFL do state that loan players cannot be eligible but I don’t see why that has to be the case.

With some categories still to be announced on the night, Aston Villa may or may not have further contenders up for a gong this year.

For those who want to read the Twitter reactions, Cardiff City seem to be having a mini meltdown that Terry features and none of their players do…makes quite a fun read!

  • I think the votes are taken around Jan/Feb time, which is when Snoddy really started to hit top form. Not sure the likes of Vydra or Reid would have made the team otherwise as they have tailed off since Xmas. I’m sure some of the Dingles will be upset that it doesn’t have 11 of their players in it.

  • That’s a pretty decent team and a fair reflection of the top performers across the season, although I’m surprised not one Cardiff player has made the cut. On a personal note, I think Willy Boly is better than Connor Coady.
