Take Jimenez bro, Laporte is just an upgraded version of Gerard Pique.

Technically good but quite slow.

I actually quite rate Laporte u know. I think he'll be a quality signing. He has definitely left an impression on me

You dont know the media can influence perception and award. You know David Beckham was once a WPOTY runner up?
Have you forgotten how we heard about the invincible power of average players like Joe Cole, SWP, Adam Lallana, Andy Carrol and other half baked English footballers without a proper football education? At the peak of these so called Golden generation around 2006, After the 2006 world cup, You realize Owen Hargreaves the only foreign based in their midst was standout performer of the world cup and the others were seen to be just a little better than 2nd division players

Actually with the awards count Terry would be rather higher than Baresi, Costacurta

Even though I still think Ferdinand is mediocre, he is still better than John Terry

Yes David was runner up in 99 and imo It was fully deserved. His performances during united's treble winning season that year were outstanding. You know how you love to bang on about "What were his contribution in the final"? Guess what? He created both of Utd's goal that night.

Stop making up stories. The only player that got any sort of hype in that list of yours was Joe Cole. If those players were as lowly rated as you claim, pray tell why was JT in the team of the tournament? And don't use the same ol' excuse of media hype again. It's stale now.

If performances in worldcup finals were the only way to judge players, then Casillas is 3 times the player Ollie Khan was.

He is a product of English hype. He has not only played in ultra-defensive system but also been fortunate to have exceptionally good defensive partners

When he had to play in a more expansive setup we all saw the result, John Terry became a laughing stock

Henry is a WC and Euro winner, scratch FA cup finals we are talking about major Finals in International competitions, Drogba's record is 1/4. Terry is not Henry so I don't quite get the analogy

He has not just been Fortunate, He was a key component of those defences. I know you see individual awards as nothing more than popularists opinions(i do at times) but you also should consider the fact that these said nominees must have done/or be doing something right to have their names mentioned in the first place.


Regarding my Henry/Terry analogy, have a good look at Nateev's post. He explains it fully. Also FA cup is a major international competition abeg. It might not be one here on NL, but around the world, it is still highly rated and watched.

I think that has to do with the British giving him credit for what others did and overlooking his errors in the same vein.

I remember Henry being interviewed some years ago in a game in which Henry didn't score. The interviewer asked what Henry thought of being marked out of the game by Henry and Henry, with an astonished look on his face, responded that it was Gallas who played against him throughout the game.

If another defender had been left liked a disabled man on the ground like Ayew left Terry 2 weeks ago, you would have been hearing from Rednapp, Murphy, Neville, etc about how useless that defender is. grin grin grin

But I guess, you (chic2pimp) can consider him a great defender. grin grin grin If Terry is a great defender, then Nesta, Ferdinand, and Cannavaro must be out of this world.

Is British media also responsible for his plethora of awards? Abeg let's give credit to whom it's due. No one is saying Terry is the second coming of Baresi but neither should we rubbish his accomplishments. It's get even more ridiculous when people start saying is no better than Bramble. Bramble you know? Fecking Hell! who next?

Yh but How did/does that interview show that Henry failed to perform to the level expected of players of his caliber in big games?

The terry vs ferdinand argument is actually a very interesting one that has been going on for years. Depending on who your ask, the answer will always be different

Anyone that says the Uk is a classless society is living in denial. It has always been and will always be. In addition to all those other classes mentioned, there is also what is known as the underclass

There is also a reason why the who's who of Elite Britain keep on sending their wards to prep schools like cheam, Ludgrove,cottesmore, caldicott , Elstree etc. Then these very set then move on to schools like Harrow, Eton, Charterhouse,winchester and Gordonstoun. The network or contacts students amase at these aforementioned schools is not to be sniffed at all. And Unless you are extremely dumb, it will set you up for life.

To the individual that said we need more Grammar schools, I 100% agree. This is a clear difference in the quality of students Grammar schools produces when compared to their state counterparts. A few years back, a Very intelligent child(currently a year 2 student at LSE) of a family friend tried getting into Eton as a King's Scholar but unfortunately did not make it. He ended up going to a Grammar school instead. I remember thinking no way would Harry had gotten into Eton with their list of requirements(in addition to your Academic brillance, you also had to be musically good. The more instruments you played the better. Being gifted at a sport or another also comes in Handy) had He not been born into the Royal Family.

See how Barcelona Team B boy(Adama) is destroying EPL 'great defenders' on his debut! If he can start running from almost the mid-line and forced an own-goal, I wonder what Messi will do!

Humour me and ask for the names of these so called numerous "Great Defenders" that populate the league like it's running out of fashion?

The Boa-TANK is better. JT is just another product of English hype! Typical blood and thunder defender whose contributions were severely inflated and perpetually kept guys like Carvalho in the background


Drogba that lost two ANC Finals and got sent off in his first CL Final. I no blame you na Robben I blame,

Henry is a World, Euro Champion how does the comparison with John Racist come around?


98.9% of German players are better than their English counterparts that is why Germany has 7 major titles to England's 1

JT isn't just a product of English Hype. He is actually a Great defender(or was in his pom). Let's say it how it is abeg. That He has been able to maintain such a level of consistency over a long period of time says a lot about the Man.


With regards to the Henry comparison, you do know He is yet to score in a major final whilst DD has done that a number of times right?

I thought the John Terry argument was already done and dusted, No? I think it is fair to say at this current stage in their respective careers, History will judge Terry as the better player. Now that might change in the very near future but as of Now it's JT everyday.

Having said that, Dayo did actually bring up a very good point. BoaTank grin has actually performed better on the Big stage than JT has but then again so as Drogba when compared to Henry and no one rates him higher

PS: Dayo and A40, not every German player is greater than their English Counterpart.

SirShymexx:


This is the type of ignorance I keep alluding to. When you start trying to create a non-existent form of superiority between the African and Caribbean community in the UK based on innuendos, it's problematic. I'm sure you know that the likes of: Zadie Smith, David Lammy, Vivian Hunt, Carol Lake, Damon Buffini, Baroness Patricia Scotland, Baroness Amos etc., to name a few, who're alumni of some of the best Universities in the UK and are some of highest black achievers in the UK.

Ever wondered why there are more black students (home students) of Caribbean descent at OxBridge, Warwick, LSE, and Imperial College - compared to black students of African descent? And why the Caribbeans dominate the black aristocratic class of the UK? Even on TV - can you compare the number of folks of Caribbean descent to those of African descent? You lot need to stop - both groups are on the same level, and the Caribbean community did open a lot of doors for folks of African descent. And you lot need to respect that. They might not have the quantity based on population disparities these days - but they do have the quality.

I am definitely not creating any form of superiority amongst the two groups. After all is said and done the two groups remain right at the bottom of the uk totem pole. What I stated are just mere facts. A black student of African Descent is more than twice as likely to get an oxbridge education as his carribean counterparts. Also Historically they have had the upperhand since the majority of them migrated in the 50s and 60s compared to africans who only did so in the 80s.

Now that's not to say they aren't any high achievers in the Carribean community. Ofcourse they are. Infact i went to sixth form with a few of them(Woodhouse College) and uni too. However let's not stray away from the truth. Yes i'll also be the first to acknwledge they have done a lot for the black community in the uk without which we'll probably be further down the totem pole than we currently are.

I read that's why Inner London schools over the last couple of years have improved GCSE & A level result because of the the high black immigrant population.
[

Stats have shown that if you divide the Black ethnic group into two sub groups namely Black Africans and Black Carribeans, you'll get a whole new picture. I Think there was an article on that particular topic in "The Voice" magazine.

To be honest I wouldn't say I am that shocked. Using myself/my school as an example, there was a noticeable difference in the GCSE results of students whose parents were Africans as opposed to those who were from the carribean

The hard copy data I have differentiates. Trust me, Black African had 90% of all those percentages. Which mainly means Nigerian and Ghanaian.

We carry the black race in the UK.

Unfortunately this is very true. Most high achieving Blacks in the uk are of African descent(Nigerians closely followed by Ghanians). Statistics in the Education sector has shown that.

Chartey:

It's not really about technical issues. It's the laws that make it very hard for African players to get clubs in the big leagues. Some laws are just silly like a player needing an amount of international caps before signing for a team in the EPL and others. Last week 30 goals were scored in the EPL, Africans scored 10 of those goals and South Americans scored only 3 yet players from S/America have a far easier road to big clubs than African players.

I'm sure you'll find the reason why South Americans have a far easier road is because they have a good track record of producing quality players. If i were to list the number of Genuine world class players the African Continent has produced in it's entirety, i'll be done in an hour. Do likewise for South America and it'll take me a week.

I will always give Sergio his due as one of the world's best playmakers, because that's effectively what he is.

A Regista, a DLP, a younger, less-handsome Spanish Pirlo.

But he has not done anything defensively to be considered a world best Defensive Midfielder.

World's best playmaker bawo? When have you ever seen him totally dominate a football game? His job is to protect the back four. He also recycles his team's possesion and gives it to his more talented teammates

What else do you want him to do to show that He is the numero uno as far as the DM position is concerned? Lay a Golden Egg? C'mon brah

This isn't not english vs spanish thing it Is coaching philosophy.
Terry and lampard have bad years under coach that didn't rate them,AVB and maybe Benitez.
I saw Iniesta and Xavi play outside the Pep renaissance am talking about the Dutch coach era can't remember his name. And they made an impression and Messi go shine anywhere.
Some players are a beneficiary of the coaching philosophy our very own Mikel is one.
Herrerra is getting shafted because of these principle and Allen followed is coach from swansea to Liverpool because of it.
Thank Goodness you mentioned Rijkaard. Under Frank, Xavi was nowhere as highly rated as He currently is. On this board, only a few rated him back then(only Ibime springs to mind sef).

I will pick Toure over Busquets in my 11 anyday.

This fawning over busquets is something I don't actually get. The guy is good no doubt, but plays for a team containing some of the best players in world football.

He's very slow, not particularly good in the air, and isn't particularly strong either. He is a deep lying playmaker that plays in a possession based team.

Let us see him do it outside Barca/Spain, playing for a team doesn't average 70% ball possession per season, and actually has to defend for once...before we label him the Jesus Christ of DM jare.

Hype Hype Hype on this board. angry

Oya name a better Defensive Midfielder in the world atm?

No one is saying(at least I know i'm not) Sergio is the better footballer. But as far as the DM position goes, Sergio is KING.

A Dmf should at least possess one trait . Which is been a goal threat (yaya toure grin) Also able to shoot from different angle and score gals. In this era of football what matters is putting the ball at the back of the net and if your opponent score, you score one more.

And which of these "supposed" trait did the man who invented the DM position according to the English media possess?

Anyhoo, much of the arguement centres on who the better DM is not who is the better Midfield General
