Premier League All Time XI - Right Midfield

Premier League All Time XI - Right Midfield

You have again voted for the players you wanted in your ATPL staring XI, this time choosing the right midfielder. So who did you vote for?

With 46% of the vote David Beckham was the player selected to take the spot.

He was followed in second place by Steve Stone with 18% of the vote, and in third was Cristiano Ronaldo with 11%.

So David Beckham, what can I tell you about the richest English Footballer there has ever been? In 1991 on his Fourteenth birthday Beckham signed for Manchester United School Boys, and later went on that year to sign onto the YTS. He made his debut in the 1992 season coming on as a substitute in the League Cup against Brighton & Hove Albion, before being shipped off to Preston North End in the 1994-95 season on loan. In 1995 he cemented his place in the first team at United where he stayed until 2003. During this time he took over the coveted number 7 shirt after Cantona retired, scoring from behind the halfway line in his first game. He went on to win six Premier League Titles, two FA Cup winners medals, a Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup, and four Charity Shields. Before making a sensational £25 million transfer to Real Madrid Beckham had notched up 265 appearances for United scoring 62 goals.

Next up are the strikers.

Rather than trying to go through support strikers and goal hangers I have put all of them into one single choice. As before the top two strikers will be chosen for the team, so place your vote carefully.

Beckham had a very good career in rightly no 1 but in a few years time if Ronaldo is still doing his stuff in the prem then... Love my namesake Steve Stone & he was great for us but never 2nd, sentiment I expect.

Surely Henry and Shearer for the front two.. Who voted for Le Tossier !!!

I agree matt, given another 5 years if this was to be done again I think the results may differ quite a bit. The list to choose from would be much harder to put together though as well.

Seven month consultation yields result

There was much speculation about what would happen, what the final outcome could bring and how happy - or disappointed - this was going to leave us. The new Pompey club crest is known.

Oldham - 17th March - Boundary Park

The recent form at Fratton Park has been terrible. Then again it's hardly stunning away from the South Coast, but we'll hope to put Oldham under pressure and collect a much-needed win.
