Yet Goretzka is a starting midfielder in the best side in the world...btw someone like Vieira could cut it in any era, he had great feet. No way Keane couldn't do Casemiro's role in the Madrid midfield, hed even do it better. They'd all fit in today's football, look at all the different types of midfielders prominent in today's game.Didn’t watch the game last night. I’m not sure about the categorisation here, and Scholes is one of my favourite players, but performances like Keane in Turin turn me on more.
But players like Keane, Viera, Robson, Toure and Gerrard aren’t suited to today’s game. You don’t get the cut and thrust of teams slugging it out, that you did 20 years ago. Clearly players would adapt, but those players wouldn’t have the same impact in this day and age.
