Hornets duo Marlon King and Ashley Young have been ranked in the top fifty of Football League players by FourFourTwo magazine.
Marlon King has been ranked 13th and Ashley Young 22nd in the list that was announced at the inaugural Football League Awards incorporating FourFourTwo's Top 50 Football League Players.
Phil Jagielka of Sheffield United was voted as the best player in The Football League. The Sheffield United midfielder beat off competition in the shape of Reading's Steve Sidwell of Reading and of Crystal Palace's Andy Johnson to claim the award and the Championship Player of the Year.
The FourFourTwo Top 50 Football League Players was assembled following votes by players and managers from all three Football League divisions, plus individuals such as: Hugh Sleight (Editor of FourFourTwo), Gordon Taylor (Chief Executive of the Professional Footballers Association), John Barnwell (Chief Executive of the League Managers Association), Chris Kamara (Sky Sports and Coca-Cola Football League Ambassador) and Tony Hudd (The Football Writers' Association).
Hugh Sleight, Editor of FourFourTwo said: 'When we published our Top 50 League Players for the first time last season, the response was overwhelming - from readers, players and the entire football community. Compiling this year's list has been a mammoth operation, and now we can't wait to hear the reaction of our readers.'
However, eyebrows will be raised amongst the Yellow Army as why The King of Vicarage Road, the Championship's leading goalscorer, was only ranked thirteenth. There will also be question marks over why Darius Henderson, Malky Mackay and Matthew Spring were not included in the fifty.
Was Mike Newell was judging on the panel?
