The full PFA First Division Team of the Year is:

Michael McGovern (Falkirk)

Kieran Duffie (Falkirk)
Scott Boyd (Ross County)
Grant Munro (Ross County)
Aaron Sinclair (Partick Thistle)

Nicky Riley (Dundee)
Mark Millar (Falkirk)
Ryan Conroy (Dundee)
Michael Gardyne (Ross County)

Farid El Alagui (Falkirk)
Colin McMenamin (Ross County).

Surprised there is no Brittain or Cairney but can't really argue with the rest.

I agree with it all apart from the midfield. Would have definitely had Cairney in other aswell as Brittain and another of the County midfielders.

I echo the comments about the absence of Cairney and Brittain (even Vigurs, but I'm biased). I can't really argue about it though.

Because his fellow pro's never voted for him...

In saying that there is 5 ex-Celts in that team so we know who they all voted for!

Ryan Conroy has looked absolutely bang average every time I've seen him, for ourselves and other teams. Seems to have scored a few right enough.

Can't really argue with the rest.

I'm surprised about the inclusion of Riley considering that he's only been fit for about half the season, also didn't really expect to see Conroy in there either but he does have a great scoring record from left midfield and has been excellent for us after a bit of a poor start.

As others have said you can't really argue with the rest of the team, pretty much as everyone expected.

Our midfield bossed just about every game. One or more of Brittain/Vigurs/Lawson/Ketts should have been in there.

In all seriousness, I did not expect any Morton player to get any where near the reserve PFA team of the year never mind the first team. Posted Image

When do these things get voted on? He was in brilliant form in the first half of the season but has tailed off a bit recently. I think he's worthy of a place but wouldn't have had any complaints if Brittain or Vigurs had got in there.

Why would you play Richard Brittain at left mid?

Riley shouldn't have been included considering he only managed to play up until Christmas.

Ryan Conroy is third in the list of midfielders, he's not listed as a left midfielder. I suspect each player submits a team and the top 4 midfielders are picked. Personally I would have Cairney Vigurs Brittain Gardyne if Gardyne counts as a midfielder.

it's probably because he isn't anywhere near being the1st/2nd/3rd/4th best midfielder in the league, nor has he given the 1st/2nd/3rd/4th best midfield seasonal performance.

Possibly in the 'players garymcc desperately tries to suck up to' stakes. But not in terms of ability or performances: a field in which your views have been utterly discredited for years.

Yet Blackpool made a bid for him in January. No other midfielder in the league has put in performances to merit interest, yet alone a concrete bid, from any club playing at that high a level.

That's because Falkirk are the sort of skint nothing club that clubs automatically look to for players. Ross County, for example, didn't want to sell anyone in the window. And have a vastly superior midfield to Falkirk, man for man never mind as a whole.

Unlucky.
