So guys, who do you think are the best actively playing midfielders in European football at the moment? You get 2 in each category. Be fair in your judgement - No Paulinho mentions (i know he tops all categories in some folks' minds). Also, no forwards (eg. Neymar, Martial, Messi)

Here's mine (feel free to poke holes or suggest your own):
Attacking Playmaker: David Silva, Ozil
Deep Lying Playmaker: Toni Kroos, Marco Veratti
CM Box to Box: Luka Modric, Ngolo Kante
CDM: Casemiro, Casemiro
Joey Barton
+1
I would put Saul from ATM some where in their
Lord Bendtner.
DMs - Casemiro, Kante
CMs - Modric, Vidal
Deep Playmakers - Kroos, Thiago
AMs - Coutinho, Hazard
+3
DMs - Casemiro , Busquets
Box to Box - Modric, Kante
Deep Playmakers - Kroos, Cesc
AMs - Hazard , KDB
Attacking Playmaker: Pogba
Deep Lying Playmaker: Pogba
CM Box to Box: Pogba
CDM: Pogba
Come at me bros

^ Tomi clearly mentioned "Be fair in your judgement" knowing this would happen :P
+1
^Who is this Pogba? Clearly he meant Drogba.
+6
oh yeah? Can your Drogba dab like master Pogba? Didnt think so
This is disappointing. I started a thread to veer away from the pointless 'Pogba' conversation and Ttk you made this all about Pogba again. Lame.
+2
You only said no Paulinho... :(
Ok before Tomi gets mad and ban my butt
CAM: Hazard, Ozil (on his good day)
B2B: Modric, Koke
DLP: Kroos, Verratti
DM: Busquet, Casemiro
Hazard is LW aka forward
ye but when he plays CAM, he's one the best
@Ttk86 Drogba don't dab , he only dives
Drogba the 🐐
Pogba got abused by Modric and Kroos in the Supercup but all he has to do is outplay Mark Noble and he's back in the "best CM in the world" debate. lolz bantz
+16
Just like how Xhaka is world class... Sometimes ;)
+10
Pshht that is soooooo last season
I think his point is "World class" is not equal to "Best in the world"
+1
Don't worry bout Xhaka, we've got Ozil...Ozil? Has anyone seen Ozil?
+3
City is buying a 'World Class Defender' in the next few days. Mark my words
+1
Matija Nastasić?
+2
Eliaquim Mangala, the beast!
+1
Lord Evans y'all
+5
^ Shhh Peter. You don't want to start a bidding war now
+2
Clearly Xhaka outplayed Pogba today
+1
So you’re saying because he was outplayed by Madrid’s midfield he’s not class? By your logic Barca are crap then they barely put a fight in the Spanish super cup.
I think he was just saying that Modric and Kroos are levels above him and that's a pretty fair statement tbh. No shame in that.
+5
Shy clearly dint say Pogba is not class...He only said he is not "Best CM in the world" because he outplayed west ham midfield.
+5
I am starting another thread with a more direct question - who are the best midfielders!
And you guys harp on the referees for not seeing the game proper. That's 90 plus minutes monitoring 22 players...this is only 1 sentence. haha

Joey, stop comparing Pogba and Xhaka because that's not even the argument. According to price tag Pogba should be twice the player Xhaka is and it was evident today (although I didn't see the United game, just stats).

CJ, "Best CM in the world" means the best. Not better than Mark Noble who can't get in a better team than West Ham. I never said Pogba is not class. He is class. Top-class. By my logic yes I would say "BARCAS MIDFIELDERS" are not in the top CM in the world debate, especially being smacked in the face by Madrid's as well. Why are you lumping Barca as a whole when I'm specifically talking about CM?

Did anyone notice the Z's on lolz and bantz ffs? Lighten up. haha
+1
"abused by Modric and Kroos" LOLOL you're a crack up. Ok bro, cool story. We'll let the super cup slide despite winning by an offside goal.
I believe the time has come where United fans become delusional again.

TL DR : Pogba is not the best CM, but he is top class.
+1
ppl gotta chill. it's just some banters. And I honestly don't see that many UTD fans calling Pogba BEST midfield in the WORLD. Also, you are telling me that football fans can get carried away after good wins??? MADNESS!!! lol
I don't know why there is so much hate towards Pogba. I am not a fan of man u but I can't deny his talent. The man scores in 2 premier league gammessage in a row yet peopke bash him
+2
Cos he has a big personality and is a dab master. And yes, it is fashionable to hate big clubs. We need characters in the game, and I welcome Pogba lol. It only works when such characters can deliver though - and I seriously think he has started doing it in the EPL, having already delivered in Italy.
Pogba is now worth £200m :P he is a very good all rounded midfielder, but there are better, more specialised players out there. RM have a great balance to their midfield and that makes them look better.
Then your whole post was pointless nobody called me the best in the world. You're probably bitter he's contributing more now haha. Last year he was a useless flop now his abused by modrid and kroos, I love how you moved the goal post.

At least he didn't get bullied by midfielders from leicester and stoke.
I'm not interested in going where you're trying to take this with insults bro. It's freaking banter and you're being a bit too defensive and moving the conversation to Xhaka again to fit your agenda.

Shoutout to Pablo Zabaleta who at age 32 had to defend Rashford for 79 minutes, then Martial for the remainder. One of the best RBs in the history of the league.
Zabaleta is a pheasant compared to the mighty Ivanovic
Who started 64 successive pl matches
+2
^ Let's not turn it into who has the biggest footballs, both have their merits, some of the best RBs the PL has seen, along with others.
The only west ham player who put in a decent performance
And he was getting absolutely zero help from Ayew and the right-sided CM.

Also, Zabaleta, apparently ;)

Uhhhhh dont forget about the one and only Aly Cissokho:

congrats we just back !!!! ffs lol
##Hi
ohh dear lol
^What an entrance.
Was Chelsea out there to break some legs? Alonso with studs up gets away with a yellow card then Cahill then Fabregas...should be playing football not breaking ppl's legs out there
playing football is too mainstream anyway , we just wanted to spice some stuff up
^ lol
Hold on a second here, wasn't it the Burnley game last season where Burnley were out to break Chelsea legs?
+1
^ payback time perhaps??
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNvPEKogxJg

Also, Benme or whatever the hell that Burnley player's name was, had a similar studs up challenge and saw yellow in the second half, where we saw red for the same so called challenge, inconsistent.
+1
lol! why are you chelsea fan even wasting time explaining to this troll? Who was last season after city signed Pep and splashed 200m.
@Bazinga you are very good at copying my words...be original man, i called you troll just the other day on the city forum.Aa few weeks ago you also stole a phrase from me "take it on the chin and move on"...you gotta start coming up with your own phrases and words man....be original not a copy
Ok troll.
Liverpool ' we threw away our game '
Chelsea 'hold my beer '
+4
Except we dint throw our game..it was gone from the start and almost almost made it back
it was in the heat of the game but still losing ain't ideal although i liked fighting till the end
@Bazinga "almost" is not good enough
Thanks man, feels better.
+6
AgueroCity - Yes,Just like 0 trophies and 100's of excuses after spending 200m is not enough.
With the Countinho to Barcelona transfer saga going on it makes me wonder about why some of our PL teams will never be good enough to be UCL champions or make it to the latter stages. We keep on selling our best players to these clubs, what kind of team could Spurs be right now if they kept Bale, Modric and the many talented players they have right now we will never know, what do you guys think?
Like every season all the best players in the league.. taken by La liga.
But the thing is, some of the league's best players really only go to Barca and Madrid. What excuses do we have for losing to Atletico, Sevilla, etc.? La Liga is a more technical league top to bottom, and that suits European competition. The Premier League is a grueling marathon filled with high-tempo games and two domestic cups that a lot of teams prioritize. That doesn't put us in great positions to do well in Europe atm, but these things always change.
+2
Last season we basically gave everyone a head start by starting pretty season late as Conte was recovering from the Euros, lost back to back games but still won the league. We were told it's bcos of the lack of European football that we won.

This season we have let go our top Striker in the last two title winning years, let go of a WC midfielder to strengthen a rival and barely have a complete team not to talk about injuries to 3 starters in very vital positions including our MVP in Hazard. That's another head start ya'll better take advantage bcos when we get going there ain't no stopping us 😀

Welcome back Football and the rivalry that comes with it. I missed u
+2
Thanks for the head start, Burnley will be especially greatful ☺
+4
We always donate 3 points to teams who are in relegation favourites list every season we just did it early this time. 😀
Arsenal should never let in three goals at home to a mid table team. Lucky for them the Leicester players didn't have anything left in the engine room after that.
+2
To be fair Arsenal's defense wasn't that great regardless, but it made a spectacular opening game of the season though. Vardy getting the party started early lol. Leicester shot themselves in the foot with the subs and changing formation, breaking team chemistry so late in a vital game like that where Arsenal is attacking so well was never a good idea. Congrats Arsenal, unlucky Leicester.
Thats like asking Spurs who have an amazing defence to play

Son - Dembele - Rose - Wimmer - Trippier in defence

Winger - hardman - left back - youngster - fast paced merchant


See how many goals you concede. Wenger wanted at least Mertesacker to player but his injiry in the charity shield ruled him out. With his experience/leadership and his dominance in the air, imo wouldve been different
Xgooner but Arsenal's defense has had same problem for like a decade now...yes today you dint have full team, but even with full 1st XI Arsenal just find a way to leak goals.
Since going to the back 5, last season that stopped, we also won 9/10 games.


I wouldnt judge our defence just yet. Tho i do think we need a CB still. Why we aren't after Van Dijk baffles me. We get him then, top 4 is guaranteed with a possible title push
