    I suppose it depends on what modern day means i guess, what i know is that he is my 2nd favourite M/F player (along with Ossie) from those i have watched since the early 60's. No prizes for who was num one.

    All of the above were visitors. I only laud the stayers, not the tourists.

    Deservedly crowned Player of the Tournament, although it was a close call with Lovren!

    Ottawa, actually.
    'My feeling was that it was time for a move – I wanted to fight for trophies and win titles, and I felt this wouldn’t happen if I stayed at Tottenham. I wanted to move to a more ambitious club.'

    That hurts, but it's also probably true - lot more ambitious clubs out there, both in 2012 and today.

    Mexico..All's I'm saying
    I’ll definitely buy the book and wish him all the best but at the time I was furious with him for how he went about stating his desire to leave. He acted like a clam when he said he wanted to play for Chelsea. He must have realised that would never happen due to the rivalry and all that? He just assumed it was like he was moving to Liverpool or United rather than a bitter rival. And that City game when we lost 5-1 was a pathetic effort from him, total lack of effort and character. Fans will forgive a lot when someone is that great. Can you imagine the stick Aurier would get if he behaved like modric did?

    That said he was a wonderful player for us. Real shame we couldn’t keep him and Bale longer to coincide with Poch’s reign. Quite harsh words re wanting to play for a more ambitious club but as @DubaiSpur said it’s probably true and in that respect you can’t blame him for wanting to better his life and career. I always says I never blame players for wanting to leave. How they leave sometimes leave a bitter taste but it is what it is.

    The real top players want to leave the game with as many winners medals as they can, i have no problem with that and Modric made the right decision to enable him to do that.

    Right decision, poorly executed.

    I loved having Modric at the club, and was sad when he left, but I also loved it when Eriksen shrugged him off to score our third against Madrid. What a moment! Up yours Luka!
