Farca looks like they’re going to steamroll RM this year. Luka needs to get out of there and join the bros in Milan.

Još Hrvatska ni propala dok mi živimo,
visoko se bude stala kad ju zbudimo.
Ak je dugo tvrdo spala, jača hoće bit,
ak je sada u snu mala, će se prostranit.

As long as Farca doesn't win the CL I am good. And that Rakitic remains in top form for our NT.

As for Luka joining Inter and our other greats there, it would put Inter on course to win the CL potentially.

As we know, the last 6 years, the CL winners have featured Croatian starters and key contributors for all of them. Its what we do.

Here's a short list:

Luka Modrić
Vladimir Beara
Branko Zebec
Velibor Vasovic
Nemanja Vidić
Zlatko Čajkovski
Bernard Vukas
Miloš Milutinović
Stjepan Bobek
Dragan Džajić
Dragoslav Šekularac
Safet Sušić
Bora Kostić
Dejan Savićević
Milan Galić
Davor Šuker
Darko Pančev
Siniša Mihajlović
Zvonimir Boban
Branko Oblak
Dragan Stojković
Jurica Jerković
Robert Prosinečki
Rajko Mitić
Josip Skoblar
Blagoje Marjanović
Predrag Mijatović
Alen Bokšić
Mario Mandzukic
Edin Džeko
Ivan Rakitić
Dejan Stanković

Please @ Croats & Serbs , include both nationalities in your ranking! Actually everyone, try to keep this as objective as possible and troll only after the ranking is done(or at least after you posted a serious list). Joke lists will not be considered valid.

Everyone cool with this?
Vladimir Jugovic>Stankovic. I'd also put Ivanovic on that list, the guy was a tank.

In all seriousness, it's a bit farcical that you expect guys in their 20s-40s to rate all-time greats...should stick to the modern era where we've seen if not all at least most of the players in question. I can't rate anyone pre-mid 70's or so since the game was different (shitter) and have only watched the players who played from the 80's onwards...

1.Luka Modrić
2.Dejan Savićević
3 Davor Šuker
4.Predrag Mijatović
5.Ivan Rakitić
6.Nemanja Vidić
7.Zvonimir Boban
8.Dragan Stojković
9.Safet Sušić
10.Robert Jarni

From my lifetime watching and collecting games ofthe ones i've seen loads of, i'd say Stojkovic, Susic, Savicevic and maybe pre Real Madrid injuries Prosinecki were the most talented footballers and Modric has the best blend of team accomplishments and talent(then Savicevic though held back by injury proneness, arseholeness and the international ban).

Dzajic is the most impressive looking of the older players that there isn't as much footage of, then Skoblar and Sekularac. Hard to get a great handle on the 50s-early 60s guys outside of their reputations where there aren't many full games.

Club honours and individual awards would suggest so.

But just from what you've seen with your own two eyes is he better at football? And how many trophies has he won without Ronaldo?

I don't rate Piksi as high as Serbs do and while I adore Dejo I have to say Modrick is a better player than both. He's got the individual awards, the club trophies and now the WC final (with no Ronaldo but with the likes of Vida, Strinić, Lovren etc. to carry).

The only thing the other two have on Mods is flair. By that measure we could put Prozinetzki ahead of him, too.

I probably missed more peeps but that was just a quick list to help people. Thanks for the additions!

Then in no particular order:



Vidić

Šuker

Mihajlović

Boban

Stojković

Prosinečki

Mijatović

Bokšić

Rakitić

Stanković


I agree with you except I’d replace Savičević with Stojković and I’d take out Stanković and replace him with Jugović.

A blind guy can tell Modric is better.

And I didn't see Ronaldo wearing the sacred Croatian shirt as Luka led our boys to 6 wins at the WC.

PS How many times has Ronaldo won without Modric? All 4 of his CL at Real were because of Luka.

Look, even the best tennis player in the world knows who is the best football player in the world.

Funny you should say that Szovkap, as a Croatian grasshopper, affectionately known as Jumper, just won the world grasshopper distance jump Gold at the worlds in Turin. More gold.
