The question was more difficult last year, because ALmeyda was simply awesome all season. For now I don't think there can be much doubt that Davids is the better player.
If You saw Juve-Lazio I suspect You all noticed the difference in pace. On a number of occasions Davids simply outran Almeyda while in possesion.
They're both marvellous and I would call them nr.1 and 2 as well. I suppose Roy Keane deserves to be mentioned somewhere, but I just dislike him too much to do so...


EDGAR ALL THE WAY :).

When I lived in Italy in 96-99 Almeyda was already a great player. But as Glen said he was to get better; last season he was quite simply awesome, and should have got much more credit. He was Lazio's heart and their piston. Something Veron will never be, Almeyda plays FOR LAZIO, he always has, he cares.

Davids is a brilliant player, because of which I hate. There is a cynical/brutish level to his play that Almeyda doesn't have (but they get booked just as frequently). At the moment they both play in great midfields.

But for me, sempre Almeyda

Keane? He can **** off, his name shouldn't be written on the same page as Almeyda.

I hope Real turn the Scum over tonight. Or maybe not as I would like to see Lazio hammer the filth in the final.

Davids had a though time in Milan and Almeyda was bought for a low price from Spain because no one else wanted him - I bet both Milan and the Spanish club regret their decisions alot these days :).

Almeyda was outstanding last season and he was great the season before - but the redcard in the UEFA final was a Couto.

Davids has been great since he came back from his eye thing and today Davids is better then Almeyda but as players it´s impossible to separate the both. If I could pick Lazio would play 3 - 5 - 2 with both Almeyda and Davids as defending midfielders :)

I love both players for their skill but I think that in the heart of matters Almeyda is a better player - look how he has comeback from all injuries.

Davids is probably the most complete footballer in the world at present!

Davids is DEFINITELY better.PLUS I would rate both Redondo and Keane over Almeyda because they can pass and attack as well.

AMO; I don't think You're entirely fair with Almeyda here. He's deifnately a good passer as well. Since he's come back from injury Veron has looked better. Mainly because Almeyda's workrate takes some defensive obligations off his back, but also because Almeyda is great at the shortpassing game. The two of them have a great understanding together, and I think Almeyda has proved that his mind is just quicker than Simeone and Sensini's for that sort of game.
I would never select Redondo over him- not anymore at least. Almeyda doesn't make anywhere near the amount of errors Redondo does, and that would be my reason.
Saying that Almeyda was nr. 2 in my book was a bit pre-mature as I'd forgot Emerson. That kid is sensational.

Svennis; In the heart of matters Almeyda is the better player? What heart of matter is that? I don't want to be as straightforward as Bettega, but I must admit I think he has a point. Davids can play Central, anchor, offense, left mid. and he does it all spledidly. He's one of the fastest players around, dribbles well, tackles well, passes well, has an enourmous workrange, has a good shot, never quits. I really must admit I think his versatility gives him the crown here.

Scottish Tony; Yes he's a Juventus player, but just as I admit that Nedved is better than Pessotto, Nesta better than Montero and for the duel of the subs Deki is better than Oliseh, sure you can be a neutral observer ?

Otherwise You'd be saying that Marchegiani is better than Van Der Sar?

Ciao.

No Glen,I was tottaly fair.Almeyda is the best when it comes to anchoring,but the man cant pass.The only way to help the offence of his team is like the goal against Parma,not something likely,right? Almeyda is brillaint when you have a man to make your game like Veron.But the polayers mentioned above,aka Davids,Redondo and Keane (YUCK! :() are more complete.Redondo may be a bit softer,than the rest but he is simply a complete player to make your game,defend and pass.

Dont get me wrong,I like Almeyda and I hate Keane and slightly dislike Redondo but this is what I believe.Almeyda is good,but not complete.

I'd go with Davids as the best defensive midfielder. Also i thought he was the best player of the world cup.
Special mentions to Redondo,Rincon (amazing but mercenary), Vampeta and Emerson.
And I really do think Roy Keane is extremely overated....that he would flop in most continental european teams...although his work rate is very good, but lacks skill and vision

Davids is a greater leader than Almeyda and he can also play as right midfielder.
I think Davids is more complete.

But the best defensive midfielder is Pep Guardiola, he is fantastic just look at his assist to Kluiverts goal against valencia.
He is also more important for his team than both Davids and Almeyda.

I think Almeyda is more skillful, he is better in physical condition (stronger), yet he does not have the spirit of Davids. The dutch is a fighter, he never gives up. Yet Davids is far more technical than Almeyda, but Almeyda seems far more calm on his possition and has great supply to the fight for the ball and its keeping because of this quality. Anyway, I'd always prefer an argentinian, I guess I find them as one of the best players in the world.

Jeremies...---->>> DISGUSTING!!!!!
F*** him!!
I hate him!!
How can anybody like him!!??
Only if you're a german, you can like him, otherwise.....I wont see why!

Davids is the best in these days from the ones mentioned above, the Dutch Pitbull!
He fights for every breath he has, even if it would kill him.

Keane is good, he is the director for ManU, and he, hate saying it, deserves it.
But of course Almeyda is very good aswell, dont let any mistakes made about that though.
And Redondo, tonight he played a great match again, havent seen him do that in a long time.

Easy guys , don't use that kind of words .....

From juve-Lazio , we can see that Davids is better than Almeyda (just you need to know , Almeyda is my favorite player in Lazio) .

Davids' passes were accurate and he's so wild :) , I know both of them are hard working type , but IF .. if Almeyda a little bit wilder , then I'll go to them both , but Davids this season is better than Almeyda .
