...how do you figure that one out? I say Lampard, Gerrard, Beckham (on
current form) and Terry. That makes 4. Anyone else?

I'd say Terry, Gerrard, Lampard, Rooney. Could handle cases for
Carragher and Cole. Don't think I'd consider any others.

Some writer in the Daily Post (Liverpool paper) responded to this with
what he reckoned were the top fifty players in the world, but I can't
be arsed typing it up.

You leave out Ferdinand and say you could handle a case for Cole and
Carragher?

Neither player is in Ferdinand's class, I do however agree with the
other players you mentioned.

You could say that, somebody else could say both players have
commitment and form that dwarves that of Ferdinand. Considering a top
50 world players, that would suggest he's one of the best six or seven
defenders in the world? I want to see him recapturing his WC 2002 form
before I agree to that. As bad as Liverpool are, Carragher's ahead.

As for the Daily Post guy working in the same building as me, he reeled
off the predictable ones, but it's the likes of Beckham, Owen, Ayala,
Saviola, Raul who I'm not comfortable with.

Most non Man-U fans would agree that Cole is in a class above
Ferdinand.

Depends which "Cole" we are talking about, I guess.

Are we talking Ashley, Joe or Andy? Or could it be George Cole from his
Minder days?

I was talking about merry old soul Old King, but now that I think about
it, I would bet that Ashley would fetch a much higher transfer fee and
be more appealing to any of the continental powers than would Ferdinand
if he were put on the market.

Rubbish..Cole would fetch about 10 million, about a third of what
Ferdinand would bring. I have a feeling that may be proven in the near
future.

Yes because clubs were really falling over themselves to get a piece of
Ferdinand over the summer, so much so that when Chelsea didn't come
knocking he ran back to the board with his tail between his legs and
signed a new contract.

Take out Beckham and Gerrard and insert Michael Owen and Ferdinand.

May I suggest the following? Rather than wonder if Ashley Cole or
Carragher could make a top 50 list just wonder instead which LBs and
CBs in the world would you rank above both and then see how long or
short the list is?

Quote:
>From my perspective at Ashley Cole's level or better:

Christian Chivu
Francesco Coco
Paolo Maldini
Gabriel Heinze
Ivan Cordoba

At Carragher's level:

Ayala
Terry
Gallas
Ferdinand
Cannavaro
Nesta
Alex
Jorge Andrade
Ricardo Carvalho
Walter Samuel

When I put it like this it becomes tougher doesn't it?
