You have again voted for the players you wanted in your ATPL staring XI, this time choosing the central midfield paring. So who did you vote for?
In to the team first with 42% is Patrick Vieira.
He will be coupled in the centre with Steven Gerrard who received 21% of the votes.
The Manchester United pairing of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes came in third and forth but a bit behind with 11% and 9% respectively.
Patrick Vieira born in Senegal although playing international football for France, was bought by new Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger in 1996 from A.C. Milan for £3.5 million. His time at the club earned him three premier league title winners medals, four FA Cup winners medals, and three Community Shield winners medals. He took over captaincy from Tony Adams in 2002 after Adams retired and stayed as captain until he left for Juventus in 2006 for £13.7 million. He was the captain of the Arsenal team that went the whole season unbeaten in 2003-04, which ended up seeing them win the league title and the FA cup. Vieira was always known for his tough tackling getting sent of 9 times in his 10 seasons at the Gooners, including in two consecutive matches where he featured. By the time Patrick had moved to Juventus he had played in 279 games for Arsenal and scored 29 goals.
Steven Gerrard joined Liverpool at the age of nine and has remained there ever since. He joined them professionally at the age of 17, after having trials at other clubs including Manchester United to try and hurry up a deal. Although Gerrard has never won the Premiership with Liverpool he has won just about everything else in his time there. He has won the FA Cup twice, League Cup twice, and the Community Shield twice. He has also won the Champions League and the UEFA Cup once each in the 10 years since he made his debut. Gerrard took over the captain's role in October 2004 from Sami Hyypia after Gerrard Houllier had decided that Steven was mature enough to lead the team on the pitch. So far Gerrard has played 302 games for Liverpool and scored 52 goals, a number of them being absolute screamers and vital match winning or match saving goals.
That leaves us with picking the last player for the midfield. Go and vote now for your chance to name the Right Midfielder in the Vital Pompey ATPL.
