    Are you retarded? Who the feck said Roger Milla? You quite obviously have as much football knowledge as park, he gets everything wrong too. From a man who thinks Josh Wright is decent and Harry Maguire isn't I can't take anything you say seriously. Harry Maguire isn't Maldini but in the current climate where proper defenders are a dying breed he is a world class defender. Him and VVD are the 2 best on these shores and he's definitely top 5 in the world

    They were great on the counterattack no argument there, but lucky not to be 2 down by half time and as I say I thought the Chelsea defense was poor on the day.

    It was a case of Chelsea being dire at the back rather than Man United being good. It was an entertaining game but how many of those players on show yesterday would get into the first teams of Liverpool, Man City or Tottenham? You could argue none of them.

    David Luiz would have organised that Chelsea defense better but for some reason they let him go to Arsenal.

    But @Goose and @Offcomedun think Maguire is world class.

    World Class that they would walk into them teams mentioned and Barca, Madrid. Any club in the world as he's World Class!

    However, this world class player is playing for a team that finished 6th last year and is playing in the Micky mouse EL cup. World Class him.

    All very interesting, but when you've watched week on weak the best CB that's ever lived then you'll know that the VVD Maguire discussion is meaningless.

    One of the best in a World Cup leading to him being world class.

    Just because a player has a good World Cup like Mills doesn't mean they're world bloody class. Joke of a statement

    Thats fair comment. I think Maguire is a very good player but i wouldn’t put him in the world class bracket, only my opinion mind. Wait till we see how he fairs against the top three sides in the country, yesterday he wasn’t up against much.

    36 is the new 21 - which means I’m 29, so all’s good.

    It's not me that thinks that because a player has a good World Cup he is world class ha ha.

    Look for me Messi, Ronaldo are Elite world Class, Neymar, VVD, Silva, Allison, De gea, Ederson, Hazard, Aguero, Salah, Mane, Firmino, Mbappe, Busquets, kante, De Bruyne are world Class and possibly Pogba.

    Don't even think Messi has ever had a decent World Cup.

    But you carry on thinking having a good World Cup makes you World class.

    Jamie Carragher, Graham Souness and Jose Mourinho all have more knowledge of defending in their little fingers than you have in your head. And they were having a serious discussion about whether Maguire is better than VVD. But you think he's a pub footballer. Jog on.

    You asked me why I think Maguire is world class. I replied thus:

    You ignored my answer and went off down an irrelevant World Cup rabbit hole. Typical.

    He makes Utd better that's their point. None of them said he's world class.

    Making Man Utd better isn't hard. Even a player from Swansea makes them better because like Jose was basically saying that they're shi&e now.

    Jose" only Man City, Liverpool, Spurs and Ma City B can win the league"
