Zanetti easily. Scholes might retire after this season, and Zanetti is so much of a monster that he probably has a few more years left in him.

Khedira or Kagawa

Xavi. Its a tough choice, but i think that he will fit in a lot better in Arsenal than Pirlo.

Heskey or Almunia?

Neymar; Bale has more European experience, but Neymar is just so talented

Higuain or Benzema?

Benzema. A more complete striker IMO.

Casillas or Buffon?

Willian, just because he handed Chelsea's ***** to them more than Turan did.

Hummels or Thiago Silva

Oh damn that close, I think I would take Hummels overall because he will have the better physical and set piece game out of the two.

Giuseppe Rossi vs Joo Filipe Moutinho

It's not close, Silva is the best CB in the world, Hummels has the potential to be top 5.

I prefer Moutinho. In fact, he was my favorite Sporting player back in the days with Liedson. Oh how that club has fallen...

Witsel or Fellaini?

Fellaini. More complete and versatile.

Cahill or Jagielka

Yeah but it doesn't say "in 5 years", it says "during the next 5 years".
It really is comparable with : would you have Messi or Gotze.

It's nice and dandy to love the potential top guy, but for the next 5 years, there really isn't any question.

Cahill. Reliable defensively, great aerial threat, and should be part of a consistent Chelsea back four for years to come. Probably team bias though, and haven't seen much of Jagielka.

Cazorla or Juan Mata

Falcao. Has proven he can succeed in Europe, and is I'd say the best striker on the continent right now.

Van Der Wiel or Vermaleen

Vermaelen, he makes boneheaded mistakes but I think he's still a decent defender with forward drive while I have never been impressed with Van der Wiel's overall game. Granted, I haven't seen him play much.

Olivier Giroud or Lukas Podolski?

Podolski. Such a good combination of skill, speed, and power. Never been impressed by Giroud.

Schweinsteiger or Xabi Alonso

Falcao.

As managers, Laudrup or Rodgers?

Well, you probably missed all of last season.

There weren't many strikers more impressive than Giroud last year.


Now of course, was that his real level or was that a season wonder, that's the million dollar question.
But to say you've never been impressed is absolutely amazing. Except if "never" refers to his existence in the EPL. But yeah he existed before that.







21 goals and 9 assists is impressive in Ligue 1, where it's very tough to score.

Don't want to answer the Rodgers/Laudrup question as it's better for somebody else to do so, but I actually think Podolski is a very average combination of those things. His goal output for time on the pitch as well as price is also far less than I would hope for.

I would take Giroud as tactically, you can adjust things to make him and his team more productive. I do not see any way for Podolski to become a 20 goal guy on a semi-regular basis as he doesn't have the instincts to get past defenders nor the pace. If you don't have that, you need to be really shifty like a Suarez (who doesn't have the guile to get past the defense with a back shoulder run and isn't incredibly pacy, yet still scores loads), which Podolski is not.


Again just so it doesn't get lost the question is

I don't watch the French League often. I was mainly basing my opinion on his performances so far with Arsenal. I was well aware that he was excellent in the French league, but Podolski was just as good in the Bundesliga last year, which is a better league.
