13 August 2012

With just under a week to go until the start of the 2012/2013 npower Championship, former Hull City manager and radio pundit Phil Brown has revealed his 2012/2013 Championship 'dream team' to watch out for this season.

Brown unveiled his team to promote the launch of Phones 4u Fantasy Football, the only official fantasy game of the npower Championship, with a number of other former Championship manager's teams being unveiled over the next few weeks.

To pick your own team for a chance to win the £10,000 cash prize along with a brand new mobile phone, head to 

Brown's team includes bags of experience, with Blackburn left-back Martin Olsson, Wolves centre-back Roger Johnson, Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden and Wolves winger Stephen Hunt all picked.

Full team as follows (based on 4-4-2 formation):

GK Paddy Kenny (Leeds United) - "A top keeper with bags of experience"

DF Liam Rosenior (Hull City) - "Pacey and attacking, has done it before at this level"

DF Martin Olsson (Blackburn Rovers) - "An international left-back, and still very young. Might get snapped up before the end of the transfer window"

DF Curtis Davies (Birmingham City) - "A solid centre-back with a serious pedigree"

DF Roger Johnson (Wolverhampton Wanderers) - "Didn't have the best debut season at Wolves, will be looking to prove himself in the Championship"

MF Stephen Hunt (Wolverhampton Wanders) - "We've seen him performing week in, week out in the Premier League, and he will be looking to make an impact"

MF Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers) - "Looked like a quality player before a serious injury last season"

MF Robert Koren (Hull City) - "Set piece specialist, will be looking to provide the ammunition for Hull's strikers"

MF Peter Whittingham (Cardiff City) - "My player of the season in 2011/2012"

ST Dexter Blackstock (Nottingham Forest) - "If he stays fit you're guaranteed 20 goals a season"

ST Ross McCormack (Leeds United) - "Can see Leeds doing well, with McCormack's goals firing them to at least a Play-Off spot"

This season, Phones 4u Fantasy Football is bigger than ever, with a host of great prizes including an incredible £10,000 cash prize for the ultimate winner, VIP tickets to the npower Championship Play-Off Final, signed shirts and behind-the-scenes tours.
