i do love strong statements.

and i have asked myself that question. the answer is that they have a better defensive team, and a better defensive system, and they play in a different type of game in international competitions, against a different level of overall talent.

and none of that makes jose a better defender. it just means they have a easier time covering for his weakness. and i never said jose wasn't a good player. i just said he doesn't fit on this team because of his skill set and his salary.
