In the wake of Ryan Giggs being crowned football of the year, we revisit our initial article on the subject - when Giggs was available at a juicy 8/1.

It can't just be about playing with Daniel Agger, as in recent weeks he has seemed to outshine even his highly regarded Danish teammate, though perhaps that the partnership allows him to now consistently play on his favoured right side could be part of it.

It isn't entirely a surprise, either, as in his early days at Liverpool he was for many the man who would replace Jamie Carragher; a confident, physical defender set to anchor the defence for years to come.

Despite Koscielny powering home the equalizer for the Gunners'; let's not forget the magic that was Santi Cazorla.
