The Pies 10: Best Premier League midfielder

Ollie Irish

18th, November 2009




On Monday 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.

So far we have done Best Goalkeeper and Best Defender (both of which you can still vote on – until the 30th Nov. deadline).

Today we’re asking – who is the best Prem midfielder 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). This means the likes of Roy Keane, Patrick Vieira and Michael Essien don’t quite qualify. Sorry, rules is rules. And for the purposes of these awards, Cristiano Ronaldo is listed as a forward.

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:

As with yesterday’s defenders, this is a very, VERY tough call.

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.
