Ranking the Best Midfielders This Season So Far | B/R Football Ranks
- Published: 02 October 2019
- Forwards get a lot of the praise, but it's the midfield maestros who make the beautiful game what it is. Sam Tighe (@brsamtighe) and Dean Jones (@deanjonesbr) join host Jack Collins (@jjwc) to take a look at the players who have been running things in the middle so far this season, including Real Sociedad's Martin Odegaard, PSG's Idrissa Gana Gueye, Liverpool's Fabinho; Inter Milan's Stefano Sensi and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.
Hot Takes this week involve a discussion of whether Leicester are actually the third best team in the Premier League this season; some insight from Dean on Jadon Sancho's transfer situation and where we think he should end up; and a look at just why everything is going wrong at AC Milan. This week's Melon of the Week is given for a ridiculous Cruyff turn on someone's own goal line...
Roulette asks who would be in our FIFA 20 Volta three-a-side team; whose playing career we'd rather have had out of Lampard, Solskjaer and Zidane and if we'd rather win a Puskas Award or a Super Cup; before Sam rounds things off by ranking the things he hates most about autumn in this week's nonsense rankings.
