    Been some shockers recently; Pirlo over Xavi, Modric over Fabregas, anybody over Phil Jones, but Van Persie over Shevchenko takes the cake.
    I kne Pirlo over Xavi would be contentious, but I just love the way he plays the game and the longevity of his career. Xavi is an absolute puppet-master as you say, but Pirlo's passing range and ability to control games even in his twilight years just shades it for me. I've also seen him live, whereas I've never seen Barcelona, so that may have added to it.

    As for yours....Negredo on current form.

    Zaha or Ince?

    Good point about seeing him live. Watched Barcelona destroy us at Wembley. Made me admire their best players more. One thing holding Pirlo back is the fact that he's almost always had two box-to-box players doing his running for him, making his job a lot easier. But, as you say, Pirlo's range of passing is out of this world.

    I watched Pirlo against Celtic back in 04/05 and he was just mind-bendingly good. Gattuso was an absolute thug, though, and it didn't help he'd been at Rangers. I've seldom seen a more irritating player. Peoiple talk about the likes of Suarez and Barton being wind up merchants, but he took the cake. Kaka unfortunately didn't play in the game I was at so I never got the treat of seeing him live, but Milan in those days were just imperious for such an aging squad.

    I know that we would beat them in the final but, Christ, they played the best half of football I've ever witnessed in that first 45 minutes in Istanbul. We weren't even that bad - we had a few half-chances and could have had a penalty, but they were so incisive and Pirlo/Kaka were untouchable.

    I'd love to have seen Xavi. Maybe one day...there's still time!
