Tough one.

Makelele defintly this year, Helguera last year.

In general, i would have to say Helguera, who has been a more versatille player for us. Both players have been the back bone of our team for a season each.

If Makelele goes on next year like this one, ill be more then happy to change my vote and eat my words then! :D

Well well, so far iam the only one who voted for Makelele. Iam looking at this season and i see all the hard work he does. Its also not just about running your guts out, Makelele rarely does any mistakes and is a vital part of the team while Helguera is having a very average season :)

But dont get me wrong, Ivan is one of my :heart: players :)

If I may intervere, it's Makelele for sure... he's world class in his position, where Ivan Helguera is not. Despite having a strong season last year, Helguera has shown he's not there (yet) to be an excellent player. Madrid can miss Helguera, but they cannot miss Makelele...

This is simple enough a question to me: MAKELELE !!!

He's our only player who's fighting those balls in midfield over from our opposition more than any other players. And this season, with Zizou playing in our squad, his role becomes proportionaly more important! Any balls lost on his part means more sweat on the defense.

Of course, Helguera's little injury and loss of form early in the season also helps to tilt the vote over but I can't see anyone taking over this role of ball winner in midfield. Definitely not Helguera (as of now!)!! ;)

I decided to go for Ivan for a few reasons:

1) I thought by the response that he was being stuffed and would have maybe 2 votes... I wanted to see his number up a bit and when I voted I saw that he was leading.

2) He has filled in this year at the central of defence yet again even though he obviously does not like the position. This is why he is more important despite the fact that obviously Claude has been better than him this year

You're right - this is probably the stupidest and most pointless poll I've ever seen. Let's set up a new one - are apples or oranges more pink? Allow me to just doze offfffff.......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz:yawn:

when Vieira comes,it's gonna be interesting to see who gets sacrificed.:(

or maybe they can accommodate both by playing Helguera as a defender,which I hate.:yuck: I'd love to b wrong,but i have very little doubt that Helguera will never be consistently good as part of a flat back 4.I dont know why Del B and the management don't realise this.

it's the worst aspect of our management,that they don't believe in specialist players for each position.

to think of a pure sweeper looks useful more than 'midfirld Viria back Ivan".if Ivan and Makelele play twin mid defenders,no need to talk about who's important.
