Still going strong: Giggs scores his 100th Premier League goal for Manchester United at Fratton Park With Giggs being the only footballer on the list, many fans of the game are sure to vote for him on the night. Variouscampaigns have already been set up on social networking sites callingfor him to win, but in truth Giggs will start as an outsider after ayear of fine achievement across British sport.
