The 1st ever Hantu Bola Awards!!!

We were supposed to come up with this list ages ago, after the regular football season had ended, but I guess everyone got caught up with work and other stuff. Anyway, this first Hantu Bola Awards thingy was suggested by Simon, with ideas contributed by me, Vincent and Tigerjoe.

Now, without further ado, I present to you....
