I agree, but my preference is intelligent and skilful defenders, as I value those aspects more than the physicality. Maldini didn't have much of a pace but he read the game so well that he was still playing close to top level at 41.

Watching Arsenal at Emirates in my teenage years, I remember Clichy quite well as the epitome of a guy with no sense of positional awareness but with so much pace he could recover and be an acceptable defender. Without that pace he would have been selling fake Chanel bags at the old port of Marseille or at best serving lukewarm croissants at a Parisian patisserie.

"Maldini did not have much pace" rofl revisionist historian strike again.

Elite defenders who was pace or physical presence are very few

Is he a Barca fan? I was under the impression he's more of a Boca fan who watches Spanish football.

He's very critical of both Barca and Madrid to give off a feeling of fandom to know, he can correct me if he likes though.

I was probably 3 when Maldini had pace. From when I remember he was pretty slow. Not Mertesacker slow, but still slow.

Also Madrid fans thinking I'm a Barcelona fan cause I criticise their fraudster club occasionally. Same reason probably why they think you're a Barça fan @Great Leader Sprucenuce Laughing

I assumed you were a Barca fan as well, to be honest. I don't even know why. Think I've seen you post more in the Barca section than anywhere else.

Maldini had a lot of pace in his bursts in fact, just seldom had to really use it given he was on the clock in position before the opposition could blow past him. Thats how good he was.

But i haven't really done that for a long time.

Ashley Cole was a better LB than Maldini. Maldini is still a top 5 CB of all time though

Excellent point.

It feels like Varane hasn't improve since that Classico where he had Messi in his pocket in 2012–13(?). People were projecting him to be a WC defender with all the attributes. Should be at Virgil van Dijk level by now, but Varane is a defender unable to read the game Nor properly put a tackle in Proud he will be back in Ligue 1 once Goatmos retires.

Same, and also the fact that I found Barcelona section had some of the most interesting posts by the then-regulars like @The Franchise.

PS: Oh and I watched Madrid as much when they had Higuaín and di María.

He's not. But between Barça and Madrid, he surely prefers the former.

Mole is the most hardcore neutral from GL. Being a Newcastle fan means being neutral nowadays.

What? Do you actually follow Varane outside of the odd CL tie? Serious question because this post tells me you don't. Varane is an elite CB, no two ways about it.
