The World Class Thread

403 posts in this topic

Been having a lot of debate recently about whose world class, who isn't etc

Basically someone posts, a pic, next poster says YES or NO

They then post a pic and it carries on etc, intruiged to see what people now class as world class, as me for its the top top players

where as some deem to be just very good players

So will start off with an interesting one (Porchy please dont start questioning people until page 2 at least)

YES - Somewhat, proven he can excel at any level. Not had opportunity on continental level but undoubtedly has ability to...

(If you can, justify your choices with reason why & why not)

Id say its 18 months too soon for Marco Reus

Yes hes done it in the Germany league for 2 seasons now and destroyed Bayern, also impressed so far for Germany nation wise and for Dortmund in Europe

I look at him again at the end of the season, seeing if he has that consistency

Id say world class = x factor + consistency

World Class performances few times a season doesn't make you world class (not in reference to Reus)

He's not world class until he does it on a rainy tuesday night at stoke

in all fairness Neymar needs to come to europe to prove he's worthy of that label.

TBH, there's being WC inn ability & WC in what you do...

Which hold more value?

Because there's been a PLETHORA of players with the ability but players in the latter category?

I wouldn't put Neymar there.

I think once he comes Europe he will fit in perfectly because his pace,dribbling and mecurial talent is too much for these European clubs

Think he should go Real Madrid

Chances are he will, no doubt. But until he does, let's not mention 'up there', that's the problem with young players or at least the expectations we place on them.

he ain't no pato or nothing. This guy is breaking records

Pretty confident he will fire and the transition will be easy for him once he reaches.

Flojo not for me

He is the best finisher around but he isn't quite WC yet

I haven't seen him excel for Colombia/Champions League but he only has had one season in there so I need to see him on that stage frequently

Ranking among the foremost in the world; of an international standard of excellence; of the highest order:

of or denoting someone with a skill or attribute that puts him or her in the highest class in the world

/

so in football terms... good enough to play for any side in world football in there position as a footballer.... then you have the second part which could be someone who is not world class as a footballer but has something that is world class like a free kick or a header..........

in short a world class player would walk into any side in the world.(noting the fact that there might be 2 or more in 1 position then its down to opinion)

See I agree with this definition, but would like to know if Rooney fitted in that category because according to you guys, he's not WC but I think he'd walk into any team in world football, Barcelona, Madrid & Bayern included.
