Tiote and Cabaye – Best Midfield Duo In Premier League

9 years ago

We are privileged at the moment to be watching some of the best players who have ever worn a Black & White shirt and regardless of what happens with 4th place or who is sold (or hopefully not) this summer we should simply enjoy watching these masters at work

Tim Krul: Probably the best keeper we have ever had, Shay was superb but Krul has a presence that Shay does not.

Captain Colo: Rarely have we ever had a defender who oozes such competence and class (possibly Woodgate), someone who reads a game, is completely confident on the ball and makes such critical interceptions time after time.

Midfield Duo: Tiote and Cabaye are quality as individuals but put them together and they are immense – power, energy, talent and a will to win combine to make them surely the best in the division

Lethal Strikers: First Ba and now Cisse have been clinical this season. God knows if they both click at the same time. Our chances to goals ratio tells a story of two of the best finishers around

Ben Arfa: Up there with the biggest natural talents I have ever seen at St.James’. To Beardsley, Asprilla, Ginola, Gascoigne, Tony Green can now happily be added our flying Frenchman.

Unity: All this means nothing without the exceptional team spirit that the team has. The Keegan teams had it, The Robson team less so (think Dyer & Bellamy in particular) but this one seems to have something really special together.

It all adds to such a wonderful mix – who knows what the future will bring but for the moment just ENJOY.
