Premier League 2014-15 Mid Table Awards

It's that time of year again! That end of season period where all of the accolades for the Premier League's best teams and players are distributed to the same old names over and over again.

Well, that is not the case here.

Here we shall be giving a nod to those who have probably been largely forgotten about, those who are stuck in mid-table mediocrity.

So, from positions 8-14th (from Swansea City to Leicester), here are some awards for the best of the best of the downright adequate.

7. Best Young Player: Saido Berahino

Although Berahino is yet to perform to the very best of his ability over the course of an entire campaign, he has still done enough this season for the obligatory 'big move' paper talk.

He seems to be a confidence player and tends to score his goals in quick bursts, so if he can manage to sustain form for a longer period of time then he will become a very dangerous player indeed.

Talk of a big money move earlier in the season seemed to have affected his form and Tony Pulis has urged him to sever ties with his agent - the same agent involved in the Raheem Sterling debacle.

If this occurs and Berahino gets his head down, them he may just develop into one of England's best forwards.

6. Best Signing: Gylfi Sigurdsson

Signed for an undisclosed fee from Spurs while Ben Davies and Michel Vorm moved in the other direction, it is safe to say Swansea got the better deal.

The Icelandic attacking midfielder was no stranger to Swans fans having played for the club on loan in the 2011-12 season.

He was not as impressive in the two seasons that he spent at Spurs, but a return to the Liberty stadium seems to have reinvigorated the 25-year-old and he has been a pivotal figure in the Swans rise up to eighth in the Premier League.

Seven goals and 10 assists means that the Sigurdsson was directly involved in just shy of 37% of his side's Premier League goals this season and it is safe to say he is his side's most important player.

5. Best Player: Yannick Bolasie

Bolasie has been something of a revelation since Alan Pardew took over the reigns of a Crystal Palace side that looked doomed to relegation.

Since then, the 26-year-old has tormented defences around the country - performances that led him and fellow wingers Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon to be likened to Bayern Munich legends Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

His best performance of the season came against Sunderland in April when he scored a brilliant hattrick.

If he can become a bit more consistent, then he will become one of the league's hottest properties and his manager Alan Pardew will be hoping for more of the same next season.

4. Best Manager: Garry Monk

It was a close one here between Alan Pardew and Monk, but the Swansea boss just gets the nod.

After being appointed in May 2014, the 36-year-old has taken an already solid team a step further and the Swans are 14 points better off this season than they were at the end of last.

He has made the seamless transition from player to manager look all-too-easy and what is even better is that he has done it all on an incredibly tight budget and even had to sell his club's talisman, Wilfried Bony.

The real acid test will come next year, but if Monk can continue to build on what he has started this year, then the club can start to look at winning more trophies and cracking the top six.

3. Worst Signing: Brown Ideye

Nigerian striker Brown Ideye came to the Premier League with high hopes, having scored almost a goal every other game for Dynamo Kyiv.

Though after a £10million move, he only started 13 league games all season and scored a paltry four Premier League goals. It's fair to say that West Brom did not get value for money with this signing.

Of course, there is still time for him to come good in his second season for the club, but for now at least, Ideye has been a poor acquisition.

2. Flop of the Season: Andrej Kramaric

Kramaric arrived at the King Power stadium on top of the world. It was a rare occasion that he didn't score for former side Rijeka - a side that play in Europe and ride high in the Croatian top flight.

His fantastic record for his old club led Leicester to fork out £9million for him - a transfer record for the Foxes.

Kramaric, however, seemed unable to make the transition from match-winner to relegation battler and managed only three goals in 15 appearances for the club - all of which came in defeats.

Thankfully for him, Leicester performed a miraculous comeback and comfortably staved off relegation and there is now scope for the 23-year-old to adapt and improve next campaign.

But for this season, it is undeniable that Kramaric has been hugely underwhelming.

1. Goal of the Season: Charlie Adam

There was only really one contender for the mid-table goal of the month.

Scored against one of the world's best 'keepers from inside of his own half, Charlie Adam proved again that his left foot is something of a magic wand.

Unfortunately, Stoke went on to lose the game, but that did not take away any of the magic from Adam's brilliant effort.
