    Even with his injuries I didn’t see any better defenders....

    Maldini maybe, but that's the level King was at, which says it all.

    Id counter with splitting hairs with Franco Baresi ... his and Maldinis partnership record was staggering.

    I agree, arguably England’s best player in 2018.

    The list of players not to have bottled a crucial shoot out penalty for England is very short indeed.

    I thought ledley was a great cb but he was no leader.
    And if you are picking leadership ahead of footballing quality... I can see why our defence is in trouble.

    Leadership is lots of different things. The John Terry aggressive/fear/shouting type is the very least effective.

    I'm not saying King was great, but you wouldn't know unless you were in that squad bubble and saw the dynamics. People criticise Lloris the same because he's more quiet, but you can clearly see for example how much Kane reveres him

    Welll there are a lot of similarities when King and Loris were leading the defence. at times we looked magnificent and at others we looked like we were in for a drubbing from lesser teams.
