We bet you'll want to feedback on football pies!

It's sadly no sur-pie-se that pies can be a bit up and down when bought at the football. Some are Championship winning material, where as others are destined for relegation as soon as you bite into them.

Pie at the football!

Some have a meaty midfield, where as others seem to have forgotten to forward on some meat to their pastry products. In their defence, getting thousands of football pies ready in a short space of time just before kickoff and at half time is not easy, but some clubs seem to manage it well! So should all football fans be able to expect piefection when it comes to their golden pastry snack?!

That's the question being asked in a new football pie survey by bet makers Coral, who have launched a football fan survey to find the Premier League's top pie!

Check out the Coral Pie Premier League article and fill in their 3 minute survey to give your feedback on Premiership Pies.

You could even take away a hamper of Piglet's Pantry Pies - who produce some of the best pies in football! They're currently number 3 and 4 in our PIEremiership Table!

Regulars to our pie blog won't be surprised to hear Coral have teamed up with the world's leading pie review blog - featuring over 600 pie reviews with multiple football pie media appearances! We were asked to give our opinion on the state of Premier League pies at present, as while the annual BBC Price of Football Survey indicates the price of pies, that really is only part of the story when it comes to pie rating.

Two years ago we joined BBC Sport's Azi Farni at Morecambe FC, who make some of the best pies rated on Pierate (let alone football grounds) to discuss what makes the perfect football pie! Watch us featuring in the BBC Price of Football video here.

Morecambe FC's Globe Arena is certainly the place to be for top football pies! Top of our football pie league and winners of the British Pie Awards twice, Head chef Graham Aimson at Morecambe FC makes his pies on the kitchen on site by hand, rather than just buying them in! Top work Graham and the team! We are looking forward to visiting again later today as Morecambe host Wycombe Wanderers.

Our top Premier League pie - and number two pie in our Football Pie League - is from Man City and was a fabulous combo of Beef Bourguignon and Chicken and Ham pies at the Etihad Stadium. They highlight that it is often better to pay a bit extra for a top quality pie, rather than less for a very mediocre product.

But that's our view - what's yours? Feedback where you think the top Premier League pies are on the Coral football pie survey and let's see who really is top of the pie league!

We've rated almost 600 pies, including a number of football pies
