Top drawer?

I assume when pundits refer to Liverpool's midfielders such as Stewart Downing as "top drawer" players they literally mean they're as good as having your top drawer on the pitch?

I'm trying to remain open minded about this but I cannot for the life of me work out why Downing isn't doing bar work or some other employment that requires relatively unremarkable motor skills.

I can only assume there's been a mix up with fate and destiny and somewhere in a pub in Grangetown a truly gifted winger is handing out pork scratchings and pints of Bombardier to a disgruntled regular.
