List Of Football Players With A Premier League Winner's Medal
Since the formation of the FA Premier League in 1992, only five football teams have won the title - Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. With twelve wins to their name, it is unsurprising that Manchester United players hold the top positions for being in title-winning sides.
Currently, a player needs to appear in 10 matches in a title-winning season to qualify for a medal (inclusive of matches as a playing substitute):The League Champions shall further receive 21 commemorative medals to be presented by the Club to its Manager and to such of its Players and Officials as it thinks fit provided, in the case of a Player, that he has that Season played in a minimum of 10 of its League Matches. Additional medals may be presented with the consent of the Board. —2010–11 FA Premier League Handbook, Section B, paragraph 27. p.82.

For the first season, the players received a miniature version of the trophy rather than a medal.

“Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“The truth of the matter is that muggers are very interesting people.”
—Michael Winner (b. 1935)
“He will deliver you from six troubles; in seven no harm shall touch you. In famine he will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword. You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, and shall not fear destruction when it comes. At destruction and famine you shall laugh, and shall not fear the wild animals of the earth. For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the wild animals shall be at peace with you.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Job 5:19-23.

“In this dream that dogs me I am part
Of a silent crowd walking under a wall,
Leaving a football match, perhaps, or a pit,
All moving the same way.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)

—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
