By whom? If you mean by Caf, I have no doubt that you are right. I mean, he was rated more than Alderweireld too. Interestingly, if you look at squawka's rating after that Wolfsburg match (I looked only for EPL, didn't bother for Europa), Smalling got 300 points on 20 matches (an average of 15 points per match) with Blind 362 points on 21 matches (an average of 17.23 points per match). Of course it is not the absolute truth, but it agrees with my rating of them, and what I have been saying since a long time (even when Caf decided that Smalling is Bobby Moore on steroids). Over the course of the first half, Smalling was much better, but Blind was a bit shit there.
