The Pies 10: Best Premier League defender

Ollie Irish

17th, November 2009




Yesterday we announced The Pies 10, a series of awards celebrating the last decade in the Premier League.

We have 10 categories for you to vote on, with 10 nominees in each category. Yesterday we kicked off with Best Goalkeeper (which you can still vote on – until the 30th Nov. deadline in fact).

Today we’re asking – who is the best Prem defender of the last decade?

NOTE: the player must have played in the Prem for at least half of the last decade (i.e. five seasons or more).

Below is a gallery of our 10 nominees (in alphabetical order). After you’ve checked it out, you can vote at the bottom of this post:

A very tough call, this one. A lot of fine defenders in the shortlist, and nice to see so many Englishmen.

Before you make your selection, please note – you can only vote ONCE. Voting results will be hidden until the results are revealed in a couple of weeks’ time.
