Wayne Rooney .. One of the best players of all time. What are you on. When it comes to the world stage his ineffective at best (as proved last night V poland)

He is an excellent premiership player and that is all. As for David Villa he was injured most of 2012. - . Players who in 2012 should all rate above Rooney and Villa are

Iniesta, Neymar, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Vincent Kompany, Aguero, Drogba, Kagawa, (Most of which actually won something)

if they are listed by rank, i say Van Persie is much better than Villa. he is smart with great positioning and able to do a killing first timer.
