GREAT quiz! Nommed!
Thanks for taking the quiz and I'm glad you're enjoying it!
But the initial list is a bit strange. What is the criteria? Surely Ryan Giggs should be in ahead of….well, anyone. He has more PL winners medals than anyone else. Given this is the ‘Premier League hall of fame’, what more does he need to do to get in? I would say he was at least as influential in Utd’s continued success as Cantona, Keane and Beckham. I understand Rooney being included on the back of his fantastic goal scoring record. Giggsy’s omission does seem strange. I can only assume, his on-going ehhh “off field issues” have counted against him.
For the record, I’m not a Utd fan. It just looks like a bit of a popularity contest rather than being done on any sporting merit. That would explain Beckham over Scholes as well, given their England careers and Beckham’s career at Real etc. are not part of the PL and thus, I assume, aren’t considered.
Of the 25 nominees, I think these will be the ones inducted:
• Petr Čech
• Didier Drogba
• Vincent Kompany
• Paul Scholes
• John Terry
• Ian Wright
Beckham happens to be my all-time favourite player, though I agree that there are a number of players who should have been inducted before him. That said, that’s the danger when you let the public vote.
Cantona, John Terry (ask Wayne Bridge), Giggsy (obvious that), Stan Collymore (ask Ulrika Jonsson). Any others? Was it Adrian Mutu who was done for coke while at Chelsea? Lee Hughes for that car accident, Adam Johnson, Gilfi Sigurdson, and allegedly Mason Greenwood. There must be dozens more.
