This year (2011/2012 season) is the twentieth of the Premier League. Thats two decades of the highs and lows watching 20 teams battle it out for glory.
- Best Team
- Best Players
- Best Quote
- Best Season
- Best Manager
- All-time Premier League Fantasy Team
So who do you think deserves recognition?
It would be hard to see past Sir Alex for the manager award. Manchester United players will also undoubtedly dominate the awards, winning 12, maybe even 13 (perhaps fittingly their twentieth league title in total) of the 20 Premier League titles available.
The “All time Premier League Fantasy Team” could arguably be made up totally from Manchester United with Schmeichel, Neville, Vidic, Bruce, Irwin, Ronaldo, Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Cantona and Rooney all having strong claims for the honour, and what a team that would make.
Thats not to say other players do not deserve a mention. Thierry Henry, Gianfranco Zola, Alan Shearer, Dennis Bergkamp, Ginola. Matt Le Tissier, David Beckham, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell and many more fill out the lists, making the choice a difficult one.
Here are my choices for the votes:
- Best Goal – Eric Cantona Manchester United v Sunderland (1996/1997)
Beckham’s half-way line goal deserves a mention.
- Best Celebration – Same as above.
The celebration is pure arrogance but that goal deserved it.
- Best Match – Tottenham Hotspur 3 – 5 Manchester United (2001/2002)
Will always remember people saying the game was lost at half time. What a comeback. A Manchester United comeback.
- Best Save – Peter Schmeichel Newcastle United v Manchester United (1997/1998)
The Great Dane. What a keeper.
Yes I may be biased ;p but feel free to put me right in the comments and dont forget to cast your vote!
Thanks for reading.
