About the only one I would put next to Basti. And then some.

Under Pep, our players progress this way: CM -> CDM -> CB

I think top 3 are

1.Vidal
2. Martinez
3. Matic

Closely followed by Busquets

Obviously if you consider Lahm then hes automatically #1.

But you have to agree with him don't you? I mean the difference between playing Martinez and Lahm in DM for example is striking. Javi can't play that killer pass forward, I don't think he has ever spotted a running man and I can't recall a single cross or run into the box. He's good at passing the ball sideways which makes him a CB at best. He's extremely effective, however, against midfield recovery teams such as Dortmund; teams where the one-on-one challenges right in the middle of the pitch decide games. Pep's style of play puts the challenges much, much higher up the pitch. He ain't good there.
