Jamie Carragher just missed out on a place in your team of the season. In central defence you chose Nemanja Vidic and Joleon Lescott, two of Pies’ favourite Bond villains. Carra is unlucky to miss out, but Lescott is a fine choice â€“ he has fitted in very well at Goodison. Vidic has been immense this season and few would dispute his selection.
Vidic and Lescott are the final piece in the defence. Your team of the season is starting to take shape. It now looks like this: Petr Cech (Chelsea), Steve Finnan (Liverpool), Patrice Evra (Man Utd), Joleon Lescott (Everton), Nemanja Vidic (Man Utd). A pretty strong back five, I’m sure you’ll agree. Today we want you to vote for two central midfielders (we figured a classic 4-4-2 formation makes sense). Click below to see our shortlist and register your voteâ€¦
Choose your two favourite central midfielders (you can make multiple choices) from the poll below. You can only vote once, so think carefully!
PS. It can be hard to distinguish between a central/defensive midfielder and a wide/attacking midfielder â€“ players are so versatile these days (see Michael Essien, who could feature in three or four of these votes). We’ll put a poll up for the latter tomorrow. If you’re wondering where the likes of Steven Gerrard, Gareth Barry and Mikel Arteta are, we’ve included them in the wide/attacking midfield category – they haven’t been forgotten!
If you feel very strongly that we’ve left anyone off this shortlist, please add a commentâ€¦
