The maybe is because I am not sure should we count Bellingham as a midfielder.

I've had the pleasure of watching Bellingham ever since his transfer to Dortmund. He's a #8 to the bone. Check out his whoscored page, his versus videos on youtube while with dortmund.

Like if you ask Barella and Brllingham to play Jorginho's position, I can 100% guarantee you Barella would be a lot better.
Not sure what point you're trying to make with these what ifs. End of the day Bellingham has performed at the highest level versus the best of the best (Bayern, Chelsea, Man City), never once looking out of place - at worst - but many times among the best players on the pitch. He's 22. Barella is 27. What high level games has he dominated, been the best player on the pitch or made a difference resulting in a win? How many games has Barella bested Rabiot? Or is the reverse true?

Vision?
Tactical IQ? Gerrard???

Freekicks, as in direct FKs? Gerrard? He probably scored less than 10 in his career and I trust he tried over 250...
How many has Barella scored?
Aggression? What does that even mean? Shall we nominiate Paolo Montero here as well?
determination to win, think competitiveness, when the ball is lost how aggressively he will work to get recover the ball. Or when a goal down how hard he will work to get the ball into an attacking position.
Scoring? On how many attempts? In front of how many opponents? Surrounded by how many defenders?
Same Gerrard that had pretty much zero impact for England, aside from a few flops (vs France in 2004 the most glaring one)

Wasn't a great game for Gerrard but I remember that chase down and crunching tackle on Zidane lol

Anyway stop hating. 24-29 year old Gerrard was a world class player rivalled by few in the box-2-box role.

Like I don't see any other players that is like him in terms of style, a bit like Koke, but a lot more technical at the same time, also you would think Barella would win a 50/50 for sure.
Kimmich, Valverde? You don't watch a lot outside of Barella/Inter do you? Koke is more a playmaker nowadays.

gerrard was super worldclass

scholes was the best midfielder ever

english players are the best, thats why their NT won 10 WC in a row

How many has Barella scored?

About half that amount in a fraction of attempts actually.

I'm not "hating", if anything I'm defending "hate" towards our star player by bringing up an example of a good player that people portrayed as great.

this is a really bad argument to be making, considering barella is playing in an italy team which has failed to qualify for 2 world cups in a row, tbh. (I know 2018 he wasnt even playing for Italy yet, but still, its a point about the quality)

I know, but the 'sarcasm' is that the players arent actually so good because the english national team sucks ass

And that's a really poor argument considering the state of the Italian national team at the moment.

I think the others pointed out already EURO.

Weird take on besting Rabiot, if I remember correctly Park Ji Sung man marked Pirlo, and Pirlo couldn't best him; Hamann subbed in half time at CL final and Kaka couldn't best him, according to your logic, Pirlo and Kaka are not WC midfielders, cause they cannot even best a non WC player.

One more was Essien vs Gerrard, but I don't want to get into debating Gerrard is WC or not, but since you like Gerrard so much.

Including A.Cole vs Messi (not a midfield, but basically following him everywhere), and Malouda was more like playing a left back that game LOL.

My point is you lost a head to head play against someone non WC, does not automictically make you a non WC as well, but it makes sense how you see it that way since you belittle Barella so much.

Which game was he dominant? Was he in the team of the tournament selections?

By "bested" I mean out performed, in offense and defense. Rabiot almost always has the better game head-to-head.

No one's belittling barella. My point is, he either hasn't shown up or perhaps been tested enough to warrant the world class tag.

Was it him who picked up the ball after the ref gave Udinese a foul, took the ball all angry and bounced it with his head towards the ground? :lol: That was when Pavard got a yellow card, for a moment I thought Barella would get a straight red for dissent there.

Still a hothead.

I'd be pissed off as well, Udinese players were flopping all the time.

Barella and Hakan were great this game. After Hakan was benched, Barella was EVERYWHERE. He is him.

He lacks final product, and will never be a great player if he doesnt change that.
