    Many games are won and lost in midfield.

    Our midfield is superior by a distance and we have Messi and Diego.

    Costacurta, Maldini and Baresi were part of the best defence in football history. Good enough for me.

    Wrong.

    Plus, you do have Messi and Diego...but you don't have a striker.

    As much as you keep trying to back it up, Maradona never was and wouldn't work as a striker or false nine...particularly if Platini is in behind him. They would be on each others toes.

    A team with Platini, Robben, Messi and Maradona as a front 4 just doesn't work. Individually they speak for themselves but that isn't a front four.

    They are.

    Costacurta is rarely picked in drafts until all CB options are gone.

    Scirea and Passarella are early picks due to being superior.

    Whether or not Passarella or Scirea are better than Costacurta is besides the point...our defence is just blatantly better.

    Maldini and Baresi would be found in just about anybodies top 3 defenders of all time. Costacurta wasn't out of place next to them in the Milan defence. Dani Alves is behind only Maldini when it comes to European honours.

    And Zoff is Zoff.

    They're not superior at all.

    Costacurta is regularly picked and is every bit as good as Scirea and Passarella. In fact, he's picked more frequently than Passarella. You don't win 5 Champions Leagues without being one of the best, whichever way you try to spin it.

    You're right, Messi should be in the middle pic actually.

    Oh and what with all the talk of the defences. Are people forgetting our attack?

    Look at any top 10 CB’s of all time list and you’ll see Scirea and Passarella in there - usually both top 5.

    Costacurta won’t be there.

    Subjective lists or 5 champions league titles and 7 Serie A's. I know which I'd put more weight behind. You can't change facts.

    You could be doing with Amido Balde in your team.

    Would give it a focal point. Rather than Maradona and Messi running about at the halfway line and nae * in the box...
