    Guti x Totti x Kaka(ac milan) for me

    Guti for his vision and passing in the final 3rd
    Totti for his being able to do everything off either foot
    Kaka for his direct powerful dribbling/ball carrying

    Just needs to add in a bit more Davids to the bit he's already added in this season.

    There is only one player (somehow I don't count Messi cause he really is from another planet) that I've ever seen with this kind of big-game, team-wide impact and that's Zinedine Zidane. He would make the whole team he was playing in play at another level. He would consistently make the best possible pass that would often not even come up in the heads of other players. The teammates would make runs they would otherwise not make, because they know they can always get the ball right at their feet from anywhere on the field. Big game, small game, no matter, Zizou could do it anywhere anytime. Like Zizou, De Bruyne is a one in a generation kind of player. We had Zizou, now there's De Bruyne. He is the first player that I've seen that I can confidently put in the Zizou bracket. Pirlo, Scholes, Modric, all of them are top quality players, but none of them can provide quite the added value to a team then the likes of Zizou and De Bruyne. Anyway, that's just my 2c.

    Agree, his tackling technique can, and will be improved. But he'll never be as good in dribbling as ED.

    Watching him since arriving here has been an absolute pleasure, especially since Pep.

    My only slight concern is that if he carries on (or, let's be honest,just maintains) his form, will be clubs starting to sniff around. He seems completely happy here and a grounded lad, but the if the likes of Barca, or more likely Real come knocking, would his head be turned?

    I'm a blue and love living in this great city, but even if I was on £150,000 a week playing in this young magnificent side, if one of those 2 were interested I'd struggle to turn them down.

    Disagree, I think he could get to that level.
