Latics defender Emmerson Boyce makes pretty much every Latics fans’ all-time XI as he continues to be a stalwart member of Uwe Rosler’s side.

Boyce passed 250 appearances during the 2013-14 season and is now entering his ninth year at the DW Stadium after joining from Crystal Palace in 2006.

The Aylesbury-born defender featured more times than any other Latics player during the 2013-14 season, racking up 57 appearances over the course of the campaign.

Arguably, his most notable impact came at the Etihad Stadium when he produced a fine last-ditch block on Edin Dzeko to prevent the Bosnian from levelling the score at Latics ran out 2-1 winners against Manchester City in the FA Cup with Budweiser quarter-finals.
