If you had to choose, who would you pick as the 10 best players in the world today?

My Top Ten:
10. Antonio Valencia
09. Keisuke Honda
08. Neymar (Not Sure How He'd Do In Europe)
07. Seydou Doumbia
06. Wayne Rooney
05. Sergio Aguero
04. David Silva
03. A. Iniesta
01/02. Cristiano Ronaldo
01/02. Lionel Messi (This Was A Tough Decision For 1st & 2nd)

Not sure if there has ever been a topic like this before as I've search a couple different topic name possibilities and nothing came up. Lock if there is I guess.

Have your say on the top 10!

Valencia has pace, can cross, is strong, versatile in RB too and can pop up with a goal here and there to win you big games. No doubt Xavi & Pirlo are quality players but Xavi, if you really think about it, is a 10-15 yard passer for BARCELONA with Messi on the end of his passes! He doesn't tend to score a lot and is also in his 30's now, same with Pirlo. In my opinion, they're past there prime and there's only ten slots!

You never put your ten either.


@Chunk: Only player Spurs have with a chance of top ten these days is Luca Modric, and he's imminent to Real Madrid tounge.gif .

It's tricky to name Top 10 players as there's hundreds of class players who are good for different reasons, I'll just do a list of players i like to watch or admire for whatever reason.

1. Lionel Messi
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
4. Iniesta
5. David Silva
6. Wayne Rooney
7. Marcelo
8. Mats Hummels
9. Yaya Toure
10. Karim Benzema

No particular order, just a group of players i like really who're top class.

I can see his point, for his position valencia is amazing, he is a classic winger, what a winger should be. I would rate xavi over him, and Pirlo alongside him personally

first 4 were easy, got hard to separate ater that
with my personal ratings out of 100:
1- Leo messi - 97
2 - Andres Iniesta - 95
3 - Cristiano Ronaldo -94
4 - David villa - 90
5 - Nemanja Vidic - 88
6 - Gerard Pique - 87
7 - Vincent Kompany - 87
8 - Xavi Hernandez - 87
9 - Bastian Schweinsteiger - 86
10 - Mats hummels - 85

I know it is odd that 4 CBs are there, I find that odd too.
there are 8 more on the 85 of Hummels (so joint tenth, hence why i am noting these) including Rooney, Valencia, Pirlo, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Hulk and RVP

Omg these lists are horrible. Obviously you all haven't been following football very long or rely on the words of other people to make your decisions.

Hummels, Pique, Valencia, Oscar, Neymar, Kompany, Gerrard, Benzema, Muller, Casillas, Reus in the top 10...is this some kind of joke thread? I suggest all of you actually watch football instead of basing it on ratings from FIFA or PES.

Just because you don't watch Serie A doesn't mean they're bad. Tevez is a great player and is top 10.

I don't think you can talk. In your list you have 2 BVB players + Kagawa so practically 3.

Not only have you triple posted, but you are also questioning people for saying the likes of Pique, Gerrard, Kompany, Casillas etc are in the world's top 10? It's about people's opinions mate, if they have reason believe any of these players belong there then that's okay.

Oh yeah, Kagawa plays for United, brah wink.gif

Those players are not top 10 players. Kompany and Pique especially are overrated and not deserving of the top 10. Neither of them are top 5 cbs either. Thiago Silva, Chiellini, Vidic, Puyol (when fit), Barzagli (Barzagli is not bias, check out many top XIs from europe 2011-12), Pepe etc are all far better CBs.

Gerrard..no. Not top 10.
Buffon > Casillas.

I know that, that's why I said practically.

You've got to be kidding me. I know Barzagli from his time in Wolfsburg, don't tell me that he's better than those CB's mentioned, that's ridicolous. He's decent, but that's it.

Yep, he was average at Wolfsburg and Palermo before that but last season and this season so far he has been an absolute monster in defence. We bought him for like 500,000 and somehow he has just turned into this absolute beast. I don't think he's cost us 1-2 goals for the whole time since the start of 2011-12 and arguably was our 2nd best player of the season last season behind Pirlo. I've seen him placed in many top XIs of Europe for last season. He carried that form in the euros for the matches he played too (apart from the final lol). He is an absolute brickwall right now and is probably better than Chiellini too.

That's bollocks, Kompany not in the top 10? I've been told by United fans, Arsenal fans and Liverpool fans, he's the best CB in the world. I agree with them, sure it may be biased, but you're saying Barzagli is better? And better than Pique notify.gif lol.gif

And Gerrard is one of the best central midfielders to ever play the game, he's older now and might not be what he once was, but neither is Puyol or as you say Buffon (Who is not as good as Casillas at this current time wink.gif ).

Well, it is biased. I don't think he is the best in the World personally, sure he is in the top 10, but not the best.

I can't really say who the best it, but I sure wouldn't say it is Kompany. bored.gif

omfg suicidal.gif you take your advice from deluded EPL fans that know nothing outside of the EPL?

I guarantee 100% Kompany is not in the top 10. Best CB in the world lol.gif lol.gif you gotta be kidding. Thiago Silva is by a good stretch the best CB due to his complete package. Kompany is not half the defender TS, Chiellini, Puyol, Vidic, Barzagli etc are.

Pique is overrated, look how much worse defensively Barca & Spain are without Puyol but not that much worse without Pique.


I wouldn't say Gerrard is that good, sure he's very good but one of the greatest ever? I really wouldn't say that.

Buffon is better right now than he has been in the past few years. Out of all GKs in Europe last season he had the second lowest amount of goals conceded to games ratio. (I think first was a german gk, maybe monchengladbach don't remember that well). And I said Puyol 'when fit'

No, I don't take advice, I draw my own conclusions. And the guys I talk to are some of the most knowledgeable guys I know (In terms of football), so calling them deluded is both naive and hypocritical from a guy who thinks Barzagli is up there with Vinny, Pique, Silva etc etc.

Casillas is overall better than Buffon. That stat or fact or whatever you want to call it means nothing because the two play in different leagues.

And to top it off, you don't see Gerrard as one of the best ever? Says it all really... yawn.gif
