    One to get the juices flowing and tin-hats out for… 🙂

    Who makes your current “Best 11”?

    Taa Koulibaly VvD Robertson
    Kante
    B.Silva De Bruyne
    Salah Messi Mane

    Ronaldo a little too old to make the team and in a years time I think Messi will struggle to make it. Mbappe was difficult to leave out but at the moment I think Salah has just a little more on him. If he converts to CF successfully then he would take over from Messi.

    Almost went for the underrated Ter Stegen instead of Ali Not seen enough of Oblak and the times I did he had about 10 defenders protecting him. De Gea still a great shot stopper but goalkeeping is much more than that these days.

    Oops, actually forgot to change Awb there. He’s not the best RB in the world yet! Trent definitely one of them. Need to think a bit more about RB.

    No disrespect to Robertson and Trent but are they really the best full backs in the world? Remember when we had to choose a left back from Lizarazu, Carlos, Ashley Cole, Evra, Maldini etc. Even though the fullback position seems more important than ever, it seems there is a real dearth of world class full backs around

    “No disrespect to Robertson and Trent but are they really the best full backs in the world?”

    Question is, who else is there to consider? I couldn’t think of anyone that stood out. Also would depend on how the team plays, I’m pretty sure TAA would struggle if his main job was to defend.

    My team may seem a little biased towards Liverpool but I guess we ain’t European Champions for nothing eh?!

    Don’t get me wrong Threeps. Don’t really disagree with either of them. It’s more the point that you make, “who else is there?”. That’s exactly my point. So few elite level fullbacks compared to 10-20 years ago

    They’re both certainly the Mutts Nutts going forwards, no argument from me there…

    As for why you’re European Champions? Well, there was this here ref…. 🙂

    Ed, I got your point. But where as the full back for top teams has evolved into a potent attacking force and not much of a defender, maybe us fans still see them as they were 10 years ago. All the ones you mentioned were much, much better defenders than TAA*, but could they actually attack as good as him? Debatable. I think the all out attacking full back still sits uncomfortably with us fans.

    *Exception was Carlos, but I read once that the full back position in Brazil was always highly regarded as an attacker first, defender second.

    Yeah good points. I suppose in that sense, Carlos, Cafu and the like were ahead of their time and would have been even more valuable in the modern game

    been making this point for some time, there are very very few elite level “stars” now than there used to be, so either all players have developed levels making the difference less noticable or they just arent as good…..but it may be me (us?) getting older and remembering when things were better! 😉

    but look at all positions, name a top 3 (only 3) in each position from anyone in the world currently and compare them to the past names in each position

    where is the next messi, ronaldo, aguero etc

    maybe some will blossom over the next few years like ronaldo did when he came through but its pretty poor in my view

    I can’t think of a proper out of this world right back or left full.

    Love Robertson but the best in the world? Taa isn’t even world class in my opinion. Positional sense can be terrible. He’s still learning the game
