Gamper? As in Joan Gamper? I know that he also played for the club but I didn't know he was that good of a player that he can be compared with some of our best player ever. I always thought that he is so highly though in barca because he created the club..

What he did for Barcelona is immeasurable and it led to his suicide. In terms of ability Xavi isn't even top. Gamper by a mile and Cruyffs have been far more important people in barcas history by a mile than Xavi. In abilities and influence he doesn't come top at all.

Xavi is definitely one of the most important player in the club’s modern history.
This is a thread about him.

Whether true or not, let’s leave this debate for some other place and time

What he did for Barcelona is immeasurable and it led to his suicide. In terms of ability Xavi isn't even top. Gamper by a mile and Cruyffs have been far more important people in barcas history by a mile than Xavi. In abilities and influence he doesn't come top at all.

I dont think anyone here has seen Gamper play.So I dont know why you bring him up.
Samitier has a great goal scoring record but again no one has seen him play and his achievements dont match up to Xavi.
Cruyff didnt win much with us,not even close to what Xavi has won.
Out of the names you mentioned only Messi and Kubala have a legitimate claim.
Kubala was actually voted our greatest ever player and won a lot.But he didnt quite win the big one.Still a legitimate claim.
Messi has a long way to go in his Barca career.He has won loads but longevity too counts.
Overall for his influence,dedication,longevity,passion and unique way of utterly dominating games I pick Xavi as our greatest ever player.

Fair enough. Let's agree to disagree.

Wow you actually saw gamper play? Shocked

The guy played around 100 years ago(he lived from 1877 – 1930). I am not even sure if they recorded the games that he played. So how can you know if he had more ability than Xavi?

Loool @ comments. I also love Xavi. Hes the best midfielder in the world. I still think that some ppl just do realise just how good he is Razz Hes just on another planet when it comes to controlling games, its such joy watching Alonso being his little pet in every El Classico Very Happy He owns any midfield he comes across, well mostly...unless they pay very special tactics on him.

Apart from that hes also very good mentally I think, a leader, the man the team can rely on at any time, the maestro! If it werent for Messi, he could well have won the WPOTY award already! All hail Xavi! Very Happy

Completely agree with Alex on all points... sure Gamper is a Barca legend and so are many other players... but you can't have actually seen them play ffs.

Even so, I know Gamper wasn't as good as Xavi on the pitch... he was a semi-pro... he just founded the club and was one of the better players to begin with. Thats why he's a legend. Even Hleb would have been a better pure player.

So are we talking of player or influence on club, because Xavi isn't the best at either.

As a player who is better?
And please dont mention Gamper and Samitier cause they are not.

What a performance from the maestro.
Its as if before every big game he thinks in his head.
'I am the Boss,I am the man and you are not going to touch the ball'.
We had the best first touch thread and I had voted for Xavi and I think today proved why.
A sublime first touch before the Messi goal and I have seen him control that way multiple times before.
Similarly another exquisite first touch to set up his own goal.
A sublime performance that only he can pull off.No Santis player could get near him.
I know Messi is the best player in the world but I so want Xavi to win the Ballon D'Or.The guy deserves it.Messi can win it another year.
It would be a tragedy if the greatest midfielder of all time doesnt win the Ballon D'Or even once.

Lastly,to kizz and cbarca,move on guys.
I am his biggest fan on here.
