These guys don’t get the applause and plaudits they deserve!
Those guys at soccerlens came up with a Unsung heroes XI list that i thought was pretty much bang on the money!
Right Back: Vedran Corluka (Spurs)
Tottenham’s spending spree raised more than a few eyebrows in the football world last summer. The attacking additions of David Bentley, Giovani Dos Santos, Luka Modric and Roman Pavlyuchenko, it was said, would make Spurs one of the most attractive sides in the league (football wise of course). But one that went almost un-noticed was the late-August capture of Vedran Corluka, the Croatian defender, from Manchester City.
Nowadays, under the very under-rated guidance of Steve Bruce, Bramble is a far more assured performer. OK, he is still capable of some shoddy clearances, and he will never be the top class defender that his physical attributes had once convinced George Burley and Sir Bobby Robson that he could be, but credit where is due please. Wigan have enjoyed a fine season, and Bramble has played a big part. Now stop laughing, please.
Centre Back: Titus Bramble (Wigan)
I can hear you all now. Laughing. It’s always laughter where Titus Bramble is concerned, isn’t it? OK, so the former Ipswich and Newcastle player has done more for football comedy than Danny Baker and Nick Hancock ever managed, and at one point it was fair to say that an opposing manager’s team talk could justifiably have featured the words “target the big lad at the back”, but that was then.
