Update: The decision is made here.

Who would you put on your list of the greatest Premiership players? Thierry Henry? Eric Cantona? Alan Shearer?

There is some ambiguity surrounding the meaning of ‘great’, so I’ll specify it as that player who had the most positive impact on his team’s fortunes over an extended period of time, in the Premiership.

Note that we’re judging the impact of players in the Premiership only – this means from the 1992-1993 season to the 2006/2007 season, AND that we’re talking just about the Premiership and not Europe or the Championship or that player’s contributions in other leagues (limiting it this way restricts the number of contenders and makes it easier to choose).

With this criteria in mind, let me know who you think would be a suitable candidate for the ‘Greatest Premiership Player’ title and why?

Once the nominations are in, I’ll shortlist the candidates and evaluate each one of them before picking the winner at the end of the week.

So go on, put your list in the comments.
