Rating -Valdrin said:I only know he plays for Tottenham. Faisal said to me that he is a great defender and I think I've seen him playing for the NT. Anyway, just how much do you rate him?
How old is he btw? Do you think he can become a leader for English NT like Maldini?
He is at Chelsea and they have the best defences around. The backline has been cut and changed, kicked around but the guy in the middle of it all is John Terry. To suggest he hasn't been a massive influence on his team is to be completely ignorent.Faisal said:Sorry I never saw this thread. Ledley King is a class defender, Erm Maldini comparison are abit over the top since that guy is untouchable. but let me tell you Marc I'd take him over Terry anyday of the week mate, He is way more complete. Seriously If Terry was at Spurs you'd see this
Who always comes out better for England? Nuff said
No Maldini hehe Valdrin but for sure top 3 CB's in the EPL, If he moves to Arsenal he will get a bigger name and like I said if Terry played for Tottenham he wouldn't look as good. King is quicker, stronger, more composed and less shaky, better distributor of the ball, A good header of the ball but obvious not as good as Terry in that one area. So basically its obvious that he is a more talented complete CB's not even his biggest fans can deny this. He just has more work to do at Spurs compared to Mourinho's Chelsea and he has been great for Spurs this season. He's been their best player this season and now the Spurs captain.
No defender is perfect but for me King is closer to that then Terry, Only he is more exposed whilst Terry spends 90% of his time just header the ball away. Woodgate pre injury was better than Terry too.
Rio and King are the most talented English defenders. Glen Hoddle has even said that they are the most technical gifted English players playing today. Well when It comes to defenders I can't disagree with him.
