Despite signing close to a dozen central midfielders in the past five or six seasons, the one constant in the middle of the pitch at the Britannia Stadium is Glenn Whelan.

The Dubliner is by no means the flashiest footballer ever to grace a Premier League pitch, but there's a reason when Whelan has made 500 career appearances, the majority of which have come in the top tier of English football.

Any manager he has played for will sing his praises as a leader, an organiser, a master of the art of keeping it simple, but yet he still faces stick from some Ireland fans and opposition supporters in the Premier League seem find it very easy to take a pop at him.
