How many Golden Balls, UEFA Poy and FIFA PoY awards to Scholes and Pirlo have? I think there should be parameters put in place for the discussion.

Scholes carried that Utd. team with many far below world class players and then in England he played with a bunch of retards.

Pirlo is a god amongst men in midfield. He was the only reason Italy was relevant in his time. The moment he left, the NT died with him. They continue to struggle to this day.

Modric is a slight tier below because he lacks some of the technique Pirlo brought.

IMO, Modric + Rakitic = Pirlo

Scholes: terrible dribbler, even worse discipline like an angry ginger kid who never forgot about being shunned in the school playground.

Modric: too short and angular; thrives only in highly politicized environments; terrible memory, dim-witted

Pirlo: slow, lazy, inability to carry out simple plans or tackle; he's the sickly Mussolini to Matthaus's Hitler.

Better options: Gazza, Prosinecki, Antognoni

Modric, Golden Ball at the WC...

Leads Real to 4 CL and counting... a maestro and worlds best midfielder now for years.

The rest are hacks.

And come on, naming an English player along with classy guys like Modric and Pirlo is an insult. Everyone knows English players don't have any skill. Sure they can kick and run and tackle, but have no technical ability.

Easy Kapernick....

NO English player can be considered "skilled" so give it a rest.

You sound like those idiotic "its coming home" limers until Modric and co sent them packing at the WC. Modric was toying with them for fun.
