The XI – Didn’t deserve to be relegated

Pies puts together 11 players from the relegated Premier League clubs who still deserve to be playing top flight football (Derby players are conspicuous in their absence…).
Maik Taylor
The veteran Birmingham keeper has been in decent form for club and country this season.
Stephen Kelly
Birmingham’s Mr Consistent played every minute of every match this season. That sort of fitness and commitment deserves Premier League football.
Graeme Murty
Reading’s skipper is always a consistent performer. But at 33 and having signed a contract with the Royals until 2009, he might have kicked his last Premier League football.

Radhi Jaidi
Deserves to stay around for his goalkeeper distracting antics alone, but also a decent centre-back who will grab the odd goal or two.
Sebastian Larsson
One of Birmingham’s best players, a constant danger with a dead ball and has weighed in with his share of goals.
