Ivanovic vs Azpi

Who do you think was the better player?

There’s a lot that goes in Azpi’s favour when you weigh up their careers, but if I had to pick my eleven I would still want Branislav in the team every time. He’s just a player who’s character eclipses others ability.

Hmmm this is very tough, azpilicueta played in much worse teams and was also asked to be captain and play in several positions. For thst reason I’d choose him. Just. Ivanovic in his primes was a beast

I think azpilicueta probably has a claim as the best one on one rb of the premier league era

Azpi has been quality though ridiculously cheap signing and unbelievable servant. HOWEVER ironically like Ivanovic, Azpi has served his time here and is becoming a liability, no fault of his own he still gives it his all but he's just not as good as he was anymore

Arguably been our best player second half of the season lol

I'd say Ivanovic but it feels wrong, Azpl shouldn't be taking a backseat to anyone in debates like this.

It's a bit of a Messi or CR7 this one for me, bottom line if you have one you're not exactly gunna be disappointed you missed out on the other. Both defensively better than most CB's, in their primes both capable of overlapping well, both deceptively good with the ball, Ivana's better in the air and more of a natural leader I'd say but that's all that splits them.

I guess Sideshow was asking who would start at RB. Surely there is no contest as Azpi's best seasons have been at CB and LB. This is the only decent season he's had in that RB position.

Y'all forgetting how frustrated we got with Ivan near the end

Near the end maybe - but he was with us for nine years!

Azpi is more my type of defender. Assured and tidy in possession, with excellent positioning and most importantly just incredibly consistent

Ivanovic was a legend though. Held off Barca as really the only good defender left standing. Could also be a match winner from right back

Its tough for me. I love Dave and Ivan had some really bad days and moments that Azpi hasnt had as much of
