We challenged David Prutton to pick his Sky Bet Championship team of the season as the 2017/18 campaign draws to a close.
The EFL expert has found no room for John Terry or Diogo Jota but do you agree with his selection? Read on to see his picks and then join the debate @SkyFootball or by commenting below.
Prutton's Team of the Season
I've gone for John Ruddy in goal even though I could have gone for Neil Etheridge of Cardiff, but I think the Wolves stopper has been a really necessary foundation for what they've built.
John Terry has been wonderfully consistent and reliable but I just think Conor Coady deserves it, he's reverted to that position for Wolves and played very well and it shows he's elevated himself to a different level.
The same can be said of Sol Bamba as part of a team very much better than the sum of its parts. I've seen him play in defence and in midfield and I think he's found a level which has surprised quite a lot of people at Cardiff.
You can't ignore Ryan Sessegnon, who has the world at his feet at 17 and has progressed very well up the left-side of the pitch for Fulham, while the same can be said of his team-mate Ryan Fredericks, who has brought the energy with a Kyle Walker approach to playing full-back in the Sky Bet Championship.
Kevin McDonald for me allows Fulham to go and express themselves. Tom Cairney has to be mentioned because he's an exceptionally talented player but McDonald has been the mark of consistency and brings balance to my super side alongside Wolves superstar Ruben Neves.
Albert Adomah has pulled up trees for Villa when their top goalscoring men have either being out of form or unfit and with Robert Snodgrass on the other side of the pitch they've got a real creative armoury to them.
James Maddison is another young player with a lot of potential and has scored some very good goals in a Norwich team that has underachieved.
As we know scoring goals is the hardest thing to do in football and Leon Clarke deserves mentioning because of the level he's found, but Matej Vydra has been consistent again, while a change of position in pre-season has brought the best out of Bobby Reid.
