talking about defenders in general, premier league's got very good full backs in Evra, Sagna, A. Cole, young Rafael, Clichy. Ivanovic is another good defender who can also play center. Glen Johnson used to be a good right before L'pool move.

IT IS WENGER'S TACTICS THAT THERE CENTRAL DEFENDERS PLAY HIGH UP THE PITCH TO SUPPORT THE ATTACK AND PUT UNRELENTING PRESSURE ON THE OTHER TEAM THAT IS WHY ALL ARSENAL PLAYERS INCLUDING THE CENTRE BACKS MUST BE VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THE BALL AND THAT IS WHY WENGER WOULD NEVER BUY A PLAYER LIKE BREDE HANGELAND WHO IS THE BEST DEFENDER IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE SIMPLY BECAUSE HE DOESN'T FIT OUR STYLE. YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT ARSENAL IS NOT A "CATENNACCIO" (DEFENSIVE) TEAM LIKE INTER MILAN OR MOURINHO'S CHELSEA THAT IS BUILT NOT TO CONCEDE GOALS. ARSENAL IS A TEAM BUILT TO SCORE BY GETTING EVERYBODY INVOLVED IN THE ATTACK. IN THOSE OTHER TEAMS, STOPPING THE OPPONENT FROM SCORING IS PRIMARY WHILE SCORING IS NEXT. AT ARSENAL ATTACKING IS PRIMARY, THEY BELIEVE THE BEST WAY TO STOP A TEAM IS STOP THEM FROM GETTING THE BALL, THAT'S WHAT WE CALL POSSESSION FOOTBALL, WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM THE COUNTER ATTACKING FOOTBALL THAT OTHER TEAMS PLAY.

The proof is in the pudding.

Ronaldo molested Inter the same way Olic molested you lot home and away.

We can list the amount of Great defenders both leagues have had over years and they'll be only one winner.

I didn't see that quality when Rooney ran riot against Milan.

I also didn't see it when Ronaldo molested Inter Defence last season.

The whole Italian thingy is an old cliche. . . .Other leagues got better.

Even players from other countries become better defenders once they step foot in Serie A.

Which international stage?

The Inter team that made you utter this statement don't even have any Italian player in their defence.

AC Milan were turned inside out by Wazza. . . . . .Fulham molested Juventus and reh reh reh so what are you on about?

@dayokanu

have always told you to think well b4 posting and i guess you were blind or myopic while reading my post.i never said arsenal won UCL.where in ur own record of european football did u see arsenal win UCL?it shows u stil know nothing about the game.

you posted a quoted comment about vermeleen laspes.it shows you only read but u dont reason. how many goals were scored tru vermeleen lapses or errors this season?

who told you arsenal play uses zonal making in defence?

how am i sure u aint the owner of the qouted site?

you are really dump in ur analysis and u need some one to enlighten about soccer not football.most EPL matches are played at almost same afternoon time in naija but very early morning in US and i guess that is respomsible for ur poor judgement on vermeleen.never pick a site to defend a player.

visit sites,i mean good soccer sites(not football) and great analyst like danny murphy ,trevor .lawry,myles ,chong and co b4 concluding.

vermeleen was voted one of the best defender by panel of analysts who have been watching,studying and eating football b4 you were born so dont misjudge .

my best and most respected defender wasnt even on the list but dat doesnt mean i should criticised the list.infact the guy plays for the team i hate most in the EPL but i stil hail him cos he is one of the best we can find in his position.you are putting sentiment in ur judgement and its quiet sad for a football follower(sorry soccer)like you

pls pls think b4 you post again cos i will stil floor you!

lastly paraga is far better than igbo that you,dayokanu take or traffic in US

You all say you know something about football

Ajax won the CL in 1995, when was the last time Arsenal won the Champions league. I am sure you know absolutely nothing about European football, Just stick to drinking paraga.

I have more football knowledge in my shirt button than you have in your whole lineage.

Only analysts who just watch football highlights would call Vermalaen top draw. He has the worst positioning in the whole premiership. Less than a year into his premiership career he has jined Drogbas growing list of whores

MICHAEL DAWSON

RICHARD DUNNE

THOMAS VERMAELEN.

You obviously know nothing about football. All the analysts call him one of the best defenders in the league.

Some of una dey spine BS, Bale just came on form recently and he is now the best Defender? and mind you he has done well as a LW not as a LB, Dune was good at the beginning of the season but just fade away as the season went further, Rio has not been playing regularly due to injury,Vidic due to the injury earlier the season,he was inconsistent but still a very good defender. Dawson is presently on form now. Terry has been up down up down.

If i am going for the Best Defender So Far In Premier League This 2009/10 (Not minding whether a CB,LB,RB) it has to be Evra,he has played all United games this season and has been consistent. END OF!

@dayokanu

i told you in my last post to think very well b4 posting but u never listen.

when was the last time ajax made impact in the UCL?

how much do they make yearly?

how many world stars do they have?

where would player that wants to make name for him self or play competitive football play? arsenal or ajax?

u can say ajax have won UCL and arsenal not but present pedigree .ajax is no where near arsenal.

i could see that u reside in USA where its all about american football.here in naija its about soccer and not football.

we eat,drink and play football in naija.

think twice b4 u post next one cos i will stil floor you

Vermaleen has been exceptional despite Arsenal's sloppy performance this term, He gets my vote .

I ll vote Vermalean because he has been outstanding for Arsenal this season. Most goals Arsenal conceded this season are not from his fault. He also scores goals (less than 30 mins into his Premier league debut - Am I right?). His goals against Olympiakos, Bolton and Blackburn were crucial. If not Vermalean , then it is Evra.

@dayokanu

the people u mentioned dint move to smaller clubs and were never pushed out or sold cheaply like dunne.dunne was benched for a Defensive midfielder(Kompany)even onouha benched him b4 he was sold so wat are we saying.

CITY today is bigger than Aston villa money and pedigree wise

Arsenal are a bigger club than Ajax

Real Madrid are about the biggest club ever. The said players moved to bigger clubs. Dunne was in citeh and he had to move to a smaller club than city (Yeah citeh are bigger than villla). Thats the point,donkey

All defenders in EPL are crappy. Spanish forwards will expose them at any time. Lucio & Walter Samuel are European men. CASE CLOSED!

This is why the best team in Serie A has conceded 31 league goals.

Higher than what Man Utd, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Steve McClaren's FC Twente have conceded all season.

Serie A defenders ma Bottom. . . . . .The same Serie A defenders Rooney and JS Park sodomised without condoms few months ago?

It's an extremely close call between M.Dawson and Dunne

Vermaleen has not been consistent enough for me, started off well but dipped in form in the 2nd part of the season

And still repricated that form. And also he is the defender that scored the best goal diz season as a defender bringing ur mind back to Bolton vs mancity bk in december,it ended 3-3, he scored the 2nd goal in that game. And bk to the topic why are some peeps here so daft, the poster said best defender in premiership and n0t europe what has demechelis and van buyten ! You guys Ought to get a job or brain for urselfs. As for me my best defender this season is GARRY CAHILL (BOLTON WANDERERS) He sh0uld be in that plane for s0uthafrica !
