This should be a close position...

I choose Javier Zanetti!

so you think Lauren is the best RB in the world... let me think, best RM is Ljungberg, best LM is Pires etc etc etc.?

Anyway I may have forgotten some names for the poll... anyone can remind me the names and hopefully an FM can put the name into the poll

Just because Lauren is never given a pat on the back for his achievements. Does it automatically make him bette than Cafu or Zanetti who are probably a level above him?

Lauren's been immense for months now. Never gets the recognition he deserves.
Ever think he never gets recognition because he doesn't deserves it?

It has to be Cafu. The player can basically do it all in defense and attack, and I do not see a weakness in his game. His defensive skills have improved from the time he was at Roma, and he has been solid for the past two years now. Its Cafu.

Belletti!

But he should improve the crosses...
I agree 100%. My vote goes to Belletti, when I see this list, I don't see anyone objectively in better form than him.

No it doesn't, I only voted Lauren because one vote won't stop Zanetti winning the thing by a long way. Lauren is underrated, the only thing he doesn't have is Ashley Cole's recovery pace.

I've always liked him, so one damn vote won't change a thing.

Belletti would have been third on my list, I find it hard to think that he is better than Cafu yet, Firstly he is still not even in the Brazilian first team (I may be mistaken) and B, Cafu is still a wonderful crosser of the ball and not so bad defensively..

No, because he does deserve a pat on the back once in a while. Nobody - and this includes Gooners - has even given Lauren the praise that his opposite fullback gets when there really isn't all that much difference between them, except Ashley being blessed with a turbocharger in his legs.

One vote makes no difference.

This is not the point of doing these polls, but if people (not only Khimik) intend on thinking like this. I may as well stop doing them!

Intend on what? Not adding another vote to the countless ones Zanetti'll get and thus rendering my vote kind of pointless? Lauren'll probably have one vote, mine, so it doesn't matter anyway.

Sheesh.

Oh please. Thats like me voting for Manuele Blasi as the best defensive midfielder in the world because "nobody gives him a pat on the back." FFS.

Deano is right, there is no point for these threads.

Does one vote for Zanetti really matter to you Serie A fanboys that much?
