Agree, disagree?

I would have thought Jaap Stam, VDS and VDV would have scored higher.

Mad how as soon as a Liverpool player does well this comes out

It is embarrassing that VVD is on that list.

Far, far too soon to even be mentioned in the same sentence as the Premier League's best Dutch player.

Has played more games than Van Der Vaart. IMO 136 games is enough.

Let's be honest, anyone who thinks either of those two qualify as the best Dutch player ever to play in the PL, as things stand, needs their head pounded against a brick wall.

I'd have a few over them at present, but only down to longevity in VVD's case.

Van Der Vaart was a good player but had his best years abroad.

I chose the non flying Dutchman. Loved watching him play!

Yeh, I think he has to be the obvious choice really. Superb player.

It's without doubt Bergkamp as this point in time. You'll see him win the BBC poll by a landslide.
