I've ever seen fullbacks influence a game as much as these 2 tonight, absolutely phenomenal performance from the pair of them.

Ronaldo will get all the credit but these 2's performances shouldn't go unnoticed, their ability on the ball is better than most midfielders.

Watching Marcelo reminded me of Gibbs at his best.

That's saying something considering Monreal is absolutely f.ucking s.hite.

The first one was a joke. only trolls of GS1 stature wouldn't get that.
The second... i think it's the oposite. i mean... light years on the other end of the scale.

Marcelo is the best all round full back in history, simple as that. Unbelievable on the ball and about as good as it gets defensively on the level under Sagna, Maldini or Thuram etc.

As for refereeing decisions, obviously you have to take in the context that if the ref can't make poor decisions you basically have to have fully technological decision making which basically sanitises the game as far as I'm concerned.

"The technology's a w@#$%&" probably wouldn't catch on in the stands.

Putting sagnas name next to Maldini is sacrilige. Their medal draws look very very different.

of course it is but Tom will elaborate now how he is taking it into perspective and talking about his pure defensive work only and how right he is in doing so.

I'm very happy to say Sagna is in the top bracket of full backs when it comes to defensive players.

Marcelo is defensive liability, Tom didn't see Roberto Carlos the best LB world football has ever seen

U guys left out Lauren. He was our "take out" man meaning if we need to take out an opponent, he is our man. If stares can kill, it will be Lauren's.

Lauren doesn't come close to anybody mentioned so far.

And Marcelo is the opposite of a defensive liability unless you're comparing him to the highest level defensive full backs, none of whom come close to bringing the overall package.
