    Didn't realize this was published a while ago anyway (if there was already a topic I missed it), but some interesting placements.

    Messi goes #1, Mbappé at #3, Salah the highest rated PL player at #6, Oblak the highest rated keeper at #9 and van Dijk the highest rated defender at #19 (what?).

    Interesting list. Didn’t read all of it but seems like there’s to many PL players to high. And definitely don’t agree with Oblak over De gea.

    If it's a Top 100 of 2018 (as opposed to a simple Top 100 Players ranked), I'd say Oblak over De Gea is a pretty reasonable take, as would be Courtois and Ter Stegen over De Gea. 2018 was the worst calendar year De Gea has had in awhile.

    Yea, he didn't have a great world cup and although he played well his numbers in the fall weren't great due to how brutal the team in front of him played.

    I don’t know. His last league season was incredible. His World Cup wasn’t great and neither was his start to this season, but I definitely don’t think most of that was on him.

    Well you would be wrong right now the best keeper in the world is either MAtS or Oblak.

    De Gea is the current best goalkeeper in the world.

    That's how FourFourTwo rolls generally, I don't think it's even meant to be entirely objective.

    Another 2018 top 100 list with a somewhat more international panel, by the Guardian:

    The 100 best male footballers in the world 2018

    1. Luka Modric
    2. Cristiano Ronaldo
    3. Lionel Messi
    4. Kylian Mbappé
    5. Mohamed Salah

    Any list with Messi #1 and Neymar not in the top 3 is a list that wants to be wrong.
