Shouldn't Baraja, Xavi and Sergio be candidates as well?

For me there's no contest, it's Mauro Silva. He's the most consistent and reliable defensive midfielder in the world. Xabi Alonso is a great young player but still has to improve :)

Torrado has played maybe one game all season. I'm not sure you can include him in there.
I wouldnt say one game but ever since he got his citzenship hes been a regular.

I voted for Xabi Alonso, a classy player :star:

This is as difficult a position as there are great choices.

Mauro Silva has been the best, even at his age,

Xabi Alonso has not played that well this year, but last year he was near the best, if not the best.

Albelda, Baraja are just an incredible pair.

Davids is incredible, and is now playing in La Liga and that puts him there,

But, this year, my choice is the guy whom I think has played the best DM all season, keeping almost single hand Osasuna in the top spots.

I voted for Mauro:star: no doubt.

Btw, you never put Athletic players, and we´re 5th, what do you have against us?:( I mean, maybe Gurpegi has done well enough to be in a poll were you can find mr. Halloween Zarandona:rolleyes: and others...

Mauro Silva even though is old. It's too bad we won't be seeing him in the coming years as his career is near its end :(

I've voted for Edgard Davids, he's surprising me a lot. I expected less from him and his job is amazing. I didn't vote for Baraja, perhaps because in case of doubt I chose a Barça player, but personally I think Baraja has more talent than Albelda.

Unquestionably. However, Baraja is more of all around midfielder while Albelda is purely a destroyer. It depends on what you want at that defensive midfield postion. And that would also depend on how your back four are (or back three depending on formation). You need that destroyer if you have a weak defensive line, otherwise a player like Baraja is much better.
