Nice question!

 

Domestically: Reina, Carra, Finnan, Gerrard, Alonso.

 

Globally: Gerrard, Finnan, Carra.

 

I'd like to add...

 

Potential domestically: Kewell, Riise, Morientes, Crouch, Sissoko, Fowler :mischief:

 

Potential globally: Alonso, Sissoko

Off the top of my head and in no particular order:

 

Domestically:

 

Reina (Cech, Given?)

Riise (Heinze, Del Horno?)

Carra (King, Terry?)

Finnan (none I can think of)

Gerrard (Alonso, Lampard?)

Alonso (Gerrard, Lampard?)

 

Globally

Gerrard (Xavi, Ballack, Alonso, Lampard

Alonso (Xavi, Ballack, Gerrard, Lampard

Finnan (I know I'm biased and a bit pissed but are there any stand outs...)

 

As regards goalies, one minute you're hot, then you're not. If we retain the European Cup, Reina will be considered a global keeper (until he lets one howler from which point he'll be known as 'dodgy keeper'.

Who's that much better than Kewell? At the moment Robben isn't really playing much better than him. Who else is there? Giggs? Reyes? Very arguable. I can't see why Kewell would be left out here. In fact potentially he should be up there on a world stage. There really aren't that many better left wingers in the world when he is on top form.

 

Problem is that he hasn't been on top form for about five years. But, yeah, he has the potential.

Agree, especially about Reyes. He is crap on the wing and was before he came to England. Whinger needs to either move him back to his own position or sell him.

I'm struggling to think of anyone. For me, Carra is the best defender in the world. I wouldn't swap him for anyone. Same goes with Finnan.

Would you swap?

 

No because he's an icon and brings more than just his performances on the pitch. I'm sure the Barca crowd would say the same in reverse.

He hasn't been on top form for a few years now. His first few months with us were excellent but probably not top form when he was able to simply destroy a team single handedly in his prime at Leeds. He's no where near that at the moment despite his improvements.
