Beardsley vs. Benayoun

Recommended Posts

If Yossi becomes half the player Beardlsey was i will be delighted. Yossi is a quality player and had a great end to last season but he is not a starter.

 

Rafa used him in the Aimar role last year and managed to just about keep him happyuntil the new year and then he unleashed him and i wonder if he will again this season?

This again?

 

A strategy involving not using the player for the first half of a season?

Are you mental?

 

Just about kept him happy? Benayoun was fucking dogshit and/or injured that's why he didn't play much until after Xmas.

Rafa has mentioned it in interviews and it has been mentioned and referred to in various books about Rafa, us and Valencia. Yossi was bench warming until after xmas. Rafa likes to save a flair player for later on in the season so they attack tired legs of the opposition.

 

He did it with Aimar and he didn't like it much.

Now look who made the original comparison to Beardsley. Me. God it feels good to be me, finally. I have been proven right and all you who kept mocking me, wrong.

 

Buahahahahahaha !!!

Benayoun will never ever get close to being in Beardsley's class, a shocking comparison but Yossi is without doubt the best creative wide player at the club but is no David Silva.

I don't follow La Liga closely enough to know but why can't Silva get ahead of Riera in the Spanish line-up if he's so good?

 

Genuine question.

 

Is Silva fully fit? Maybe Riera just seems to work well in their side at the moment so the manager has stuck with him. Would be interesting to know though.

Personally if Yossi was in a side as good as the one Beardsley was in, I think the comparison would stand up pretty well. He seems to possess some very similar attributes although isn't as lethal as Pe'uh

Nonsense, I'm guessing you saw close to nothing of Beardsley at Liverpool. Beardsley looked class in shit teams as well as when he was surrounded by great players at Liverpool.

 

Yossi is playing very well but it was a stupid comparison then and still is now.

To be fair stumpy, i'm sure the comparisons are because of the way they both dance around the edge of the box like a pair of twinkle-toed girlies.

Good players like.

There's a tendency to overrate Beardsley, as good as he was, and underrate Benayoun, who plays in a better league than Beardsley ever did. That said, Beardsley was a better player.

I don't think Yossi is genius but the level of defending has improved and players have to stay on their feet more. Beardsley loved a sliding defender. Left. For. Dead.

 

Beardsley >> Yossi (as much as I like Yossi)

If Benayoun is still playing regularly, captaining actually, a top team still challenging for top honours in the top league when he's 35 too; we'll talk.

Beardsley wasn't overrated, he was fucking brilliant. If anything, he was underrated because he was in the same side as Barnes and Rush.

 

I think it's a reasonable comparison between him and Yossi to be honest. Yossi hasn't won as much, but then nor has Gerrard and pretty much everyone agrees that he's our best ever play bar possibly Dalglish.

For me it's not even about what either player have won, Beardsley was class at Newcastle, Liverpool, Everton and Newcastle again. He looked brilliant in really shit teams and the best in Europe. Yossi just isn't on that level, playing as great as he is now.

 

I agree that Beardsley was often underrated...

Beardsley for me as well.

 

Arshavin also reminds me of Wor Peter, and I wish we could've snagged him instead of Arsenal.

Beardsley was a fantastic player, but the Diao/Dalglish thing is just stupid. Yossi is a very good player, and while he isn't at Beardo's level, he also didn't cost the British transfer record, which would have been over 31m (I checked).
