They don't have to be the same position, I was talking about forward in general and I would much rather have any of the players that I listed than Rooney or Tevez.
A year ago Rooney was borderline top striker in the world, however this season he is not the same player. He isn't scoring as much, his passing is over-rated in my opinion, especially seeing as he has a genius like Scholes playing alongside him to demonstrate the difference in class. Tbh this year just seems like everyone has worshipped Rooney again like he is still the best in the world for one overhead kick.
Eto'o- Why not? If we are judging players on what they are capable of, why not judge Eto'o on his last season for Barca? Regardless, he is one of the top scorers in Italy at the moment in a reasonably weakened Inter side.
Van Persie- Was pretty much Barca's only threat in this Champions league campaign up until the Clasico's.
Hernandez- may be only breaking into the team now, but this season he has a better goals per game ratio than Rooney and Berbatov.
Berbatov- top goalscorer in the EPL currently.
Villa- If he hadn't had a dip in form, he would be well into the 30's this season, as things stand however he has still scored far more than Rooney. Also you can factor in that he really shone in the world cup, instead of being an absolute flop like Rooney and Tevez.
Pedro- Look at how much he scores, and the type of goals he scores. Guardiola has said that Pedro is the best finisher at Barca besides Messi. That means he is also better than Villa, who is most definitely a better finisher than Rooney.
Di Maria- Different position, still a far better player. You have to take into consideration that Real madrids front 3 rotate during the game, almost like how Barca's front line play. Creates more goals than Rooney when he drops deep and scores more when he is getting service.
Benzema- rough start to the beginning of the season, but if you see some of the goals he is scoring now that he has settled in and gained a bit of confidence, he is a machine.
Ronaldo/Messi- I don't have to say anything.
Panchester, my TV is probably worth more than your house. Don't try that sh*t on me
What question Brilliance.
