Busquets, the most technically gifted anchor in the world, perhaps the most tactically astute Dm in the world also, and like Alonso has a high lvl of consistent performances for several years now for club and country.

Fabregas, most devastating midfielder in terms of efficacy whether it be assisting or scoring. He has done so consistently for many years.  

Overwhelming talent + consistency ( years) + high level of play = WC




Cesc has been everything but WC in the last 2 years. Alonso was good until the last season, I've never considered Busquets world-class but that's my pure opinion.

You are within your right to say that as I am within my right to say mine. I just don't think this WC thing holds any water. It holds no meaning for me.

Its not something generated by "internet tacticians", its very common in football to use that terms. Pundits, commentators, coaches & even players use that term. Everyone uses that term in football. Its an internet football forum and we're discussing matters relating to football. You're not making sense with that. You don't ALWAYS have to try so hard to be THE contrarian. Don't even know what you're on about.

By your previous theory you'd call Quaresma world class? He did have world class talent and he did have a few brilliant matches. Is he world class to you?

The WC ability has to be consistent. The player can't be called WC if he's WC for a bit and then declines.

WC 2014 will cement many players as world-class, especially the 91-93 generations IMO

I think they are of similar quality. I had Chiellini in already and none from PL so I put him in.

Do you rate Alba higher than Alaba?

Cazorla higher than Kroos?

Alonso higher than Busquets?

I'm always logged on and my computer is almost always on. Doesn't mean I'm around or I'm on the site that often.

And no, I don't rate Alba higher than Alaba. Just forgot to mention Alaba.

Cazorla and Kroos are two different players imo. Not fair to make a direct comparison.
