THE VOTE Choose your team of the season: Wide midfield

Ollie Irish

24th, April 2007


_39451333_mtaylor203x270.jpgYesterday you selected Michael Essien and Tom ‘The Bunker’ Huddlestone to slot into the central midfield of your team of the season. I suspect there may have been some double votes for The Bunker, but he got so many that I have to let him in. And that’s no bad thing – he is, after all, a talented young English midfielder with great vision and a fierce shot. Essien’s selection was a no brainer. The pair join Petr Cech, Steve Finnan, Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic and Joleon Lescott in Pies team of the season, as voted for by you, the readers.
Today we’re asking you to vote for two wide midfielders. Click below to see our shortlist and make your selection…

Pick your top two, click in the box by their name and Bob’s your uncle.

  1. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    This is probably the toughest category in terms of good performances this season!

    This line-up is a joke if Huddlestone gets selected ahead of the likes of Scholes, Gerrard, Fabregas, Carrick, Lampard or Arteta.
    Best central midfielder in the league? He’s not even the best central midfielder at Tottenham!

    If you read it you will see Gerrard and Arteta are on the wide midfielders positions.
    Carrick is a lazy, overpriced muppet who looks like Napoleon Dynamite. Defensive Midfielder….. no your just lazy.
    Fabregas hasnt dont anything special this season neither has lampard or scholes.
    Many of these players have been voted for just on their name alone not their actual performance week in week our for their club. Yes he may be worth a lot or be good on Pro Evo but has he played exceptionally well this season…… NO
    Suppose you think Jenas is better than The Bunker…… maybe you love jenas……

    Why isn’t Scholes in the wide/attacking midfielders of the year? Was he in yesterday’s vote?

  5. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Scholes was down as a central midfielder in yesterday’s vote Dan.

    Wow those “the Bunker” fans are very forthright in their opinions, so be it.

    Lennon has surely got to be up there for performances of the season hes been running the Spurs Midfield allong with ‘The Bunker’ without those two and Berbatov they would have been languishing in a standard midfield Obscurity of 10th and would have been knocked out of the UEFA Cup even earlier and less unfortunatly.
    Stephen Hunt…. contribution of ‘Killing’ Cech for a while surely all Man U fans should be voting for him…..

    the idiot who made the third comment obviously doesn’t watch football…
    “Fabregas hasnt dont anything special this season neither has lampard or scholes.”
    Scholes has been absolutely epic! Can’t believe he didn’t make the pies team, scandalous.
    As for this category – Ronaldo is a given, I had Barry second as he had an epic first half of the season.

    Scholes is a diry Ginge.
    Lampard and Fabregas havent been that special and far away from their high standards of previous seasons. many of these players are getting voted for and put on lists for their reputations and for what they have done in previous seasons not for their efforts and work for their individual teams which seem to have gone unnoticed.
    it seems to be whoever makes the headlines on the front of the Sun for having the WAG with the biggest tits gets or Sha*ged the most grannies gets all the coverage and votes.

    Ronaldo was a no-brainer.
    I was torn on the 2nd one. If I had picked Giggsy, I’d have been marked as a United homer (which I am, but first and foremost, I’m a football fan), so even though he’s having an Indian Summer, I eliminated him. Diouf, Barry, Arteta? Nevermind.
    Hunt? Nah.
    Gerrard? Playing out of position.
    That left me with Pedersen, Lennon, and Taylor. I have to confess that I haven’t seen much of Pedersen, but if United are interested in him, surely he’s done something of note this season, and I’ve seen some cracking strikes from him. Thing is, I can’t get over that missed header at the end of the FA Semis, and he’s pretty much been shut down against quality opposition. So has Lennon, even though he’s having a gem of a season and is surely still rising.
    That’s why I went with Matt Taylor.

    Matty Taylor to be sure, and with the much grumbling … Ronaldo.
