Which type of player do you prefer,

A player who can get by on his skill alone, does not hustle,does not play through pain, or run hard, but has the ability to change a game with one piece of skill.

or

A player who is lacking a little in the talent department, but is willing to give 110% and make the most out of every minute he spends on the pitch.

I personally prefer the hard worker, although the talented softer guys come in handy as well, but I think a good team needs more hardworkers than pure skill guys.

I prefer players with skill, i work hard enough myself without having to watch some other toilet cleaner working hard as well.

Do you guys think that the ones with talents are usually the attacking players and playmakers, while the ones with high workrate are usually the defensive midfielders and the defenders?

Skillful players are what makes this the great sport it is. Ronaldinho is insanely skilled but does work hard at the same time. So do many other very talented players. Mutu is another example. I prefer watching those players then watching hard workers. A team does need both types though.

It depends on the competition you are playing. Skilful players that are lazy and are afraid of a more physical game aren't very useful in some competitions.

When will you ever grow up?


BTW, someone who has both talent and workrate is Robinho.

It seems nice to see him defending, going all the way back to the defence taking the ball from the attacker and starting the attack :thumbsup:. Then the next second you see him on the other side of the pitch

Robinho + od

Some1 who has both - i.e. Cannavaro, Zambrotta, Vieira, Emerson.
PAVEL NEDVED is the best example of some1 who has the perfect combination.

For a player with talent and workrate, rooney is prtty damn good too. covers for neville at right back every now and again.

personally...players who are all skill and no effort are never embraced quite as well by a clubs fans compared to ones that work themsleves into the ground.. so it's gotta be workrate for me.

Rooney doesnt even support his own striker, he drifts too far away from his position most of the time leavng large gaps between him and Ruud.

Luca Toni, Pirlo, Zlatan have both.

So does Rooney. Alan Smith is a good example of a player with good workrate but zero talent.
Did you ever watch alan smith for Leeds, if course he has talent he is being played out of position. :rolleyes:
