Now that we’re into the New Year, it’s time to look back on the year that was 2011 and pick out the players that made the year their own.

Sadly on a night billed as one of the best Champions League finals ever, once again it was Barcelona who played to thier full potential last night, as they rather comfortably beat Manchester United at Wembley to win their fourth European Cup.
