We had a similar discussion a while back..on the Maradona thing...people were saying he was the worlds best "Footballer"
Don't agree...maybe could argue up there with worlds best Forwards/strikers....best Overall Footballer No.
Think you have to say best in a certain position...
Even Mooro...Worlds greatest defender at time ..biasedly.. all day long...
..Arguably still yes ..maybe Beckenbauer tho.
Worlds greatest Footballer probably No.
But then you can take it a stage further...thats where players like Declan come in.He's a footballer...not a striker,Center Half,
not a FB...not a creator No10 type...is he a sitter..a No 8...Plays the sitting role for us and England,even that's slightly
different in how it works...much deeper with England...has a one stays one goes thing with Soucek when with us.
The fact he plays all those roles or could do...even give the CF thing a good crack....makes him a better Footballer than most.
D'Bruyne best around,would you be happy with him at CB or sitting....he maybe cant do Decs job,but Dec could have a good
crack at his...so who's the better player.
Can honestly say there's not a Player out there I'd swap him for at moment...that says a lot.
Brucie at the Spuds is right up there for me as well, up there with Declan in fact.....Really Really good all round footballer,
Could easily play MF..
