Greatness: The state, condition, or quality of being great; as, greatness of size, greatness of mind, power, etc.
After a heated debate last night (alcohol induced) over who can lay rightful ownership of the title Premierships Greatest player, I thought it would be interesting to ‘try’ and devise a list of players who in my eyes had had such an effect on our top division since its rebirth in 1992 as the Premier League.
I do obviously realise this is a thankless task which is sure to ruffle feathers for whom ever reads this article. I can only apologise in advance for any offence caused if I in my unwitting state have missed your side’s top player(s). I can only assure you all that as a Birmingham City supporter myself that ‘Greatness’ is not something we are too familiar with, although latterly we have witnessed it on a few occasions normally from the sides visiting St Andrews.
Well, here goes, I have tried to collate them into a top 10. The criteria is simply the effect that the player in question has had on his particular teams fortunes over the period he was playing for them. For those still currently playing this criteria is stretched until present day for arguments sake.
