However, Ayoo J0n can look back fondly on the season on a personal note, as the Napoli CAM served as a general in the midfield, producing an outstanding season for the Italian side.

With 37 goals (2nd), 13 assists (T-3rd), 30 key passes, and 12 MOTM awards in his 37 games, it is hard to fault the Napoli striker with the club’s finish.

The striker joins a group of prolific forwards in League Two this season, with 33 goals (3rd), 12 assists, and 47 key passes (1st) to go along with a league-leading 14 MOTM awards. In the arguably most defensive FIFA in recent times, if Elements of God can keep up his prolific scoring in League One and Super League, he will be a force to be reckoned with up top.
ST: TzCamzy (PSV) – Finishing out the S12 edition of the League Two TOTS is the last PSV player in a quartet that fills the bench, TzCamzy.
