Top 5 wingers in England

Wingers can make a team.  They can be creative, fancy, explosive and clinical.  They entertain and excite whilst simultaneously being an important cog in the football wheel.  So, who's the best?  It would be easy to do this list from a medal and trophy perspective, but that would be unfair on the great players who performed so well for lesser teams.
